Life’s disappointments can be defeating but that need not be the case. If one keeps on pushing ahead with eyes firmly fixed on Christ, one learns from it, gains wisdom in learning and continues on the path in dependence on the Lord.
Only when we finally come to see ourselves as we truly are can we become ready to commune with the Savior.
Doing what is right and just may cost you something. Being right; treating others as you want to be treated is more important than the profit you might have if you operate out of deceit.
Standards; the marks of achievement for which we strive must be maintained in the most elevated estimation for societies as well as individuals. Lowering the standard looks appealing for it makes achievement easier but the accomplishment matters little within the battle.
Including God in one’s plans is a pretty good idea when viewed from the mark of sinful beginning but God’s place is not beside us as co-owner. His place is far above ours as our head, master and Lord.
The world judges based on the standards of a broken, fallen identity. Believers are commanded to a higher standard, one that values each life as precious to our heavenly Father because we bear His image.
It’s all too easy to miss the great opportunities that come our way, How may have you already missed? How many more will be had when sought after?
It takes a discerning eye to see beauty in the insignificant things of life. Stone or tax-collector; beauty can be found when looking through the eyes of Christ.
As many others have found, in his attempt to discredit the Bible, Lou Wallace discovered God and His plan for life.
The way in which we define things like “freedom” is telling, for freedom isn’t doing whatever it is we want. Freedom is an environment which enables and encourages choice to be captivated by service. The apostle Paul spoke of being a bond-servant to Christ and in that bondage he found true freedom.
We may hear others use the same terminology that is quite familiar and sound similar to that spoken in Christian circles, BUT, beware! Context can be helpful, focus is important, be sure we are well focused on the carpenter from Galilee.
Little eyes are always watching; little hearts are constantly being imprinted. When we are pressed what is displayed to those littles? When jarred what is it that splashes out of us…Christ’s love or our own selfishness?
Being dreamers, our forefathers accomplished a huge undertaking. But the Apostles – they were dreamers beyond any and the world has never been the same since.
Stooping to embrace to Himself that, which by essence is not embraceable, Christ became what He was not in order to make us what we could, in ourselves, never be.
Amazing! The Creator provided what only He could; the only remedy for sin, His Son, our Christ. Yet He entrusted the Gospel, His good news about the remedy, to mere men.
Every moment of every day is reason for thanksgiving, especially for the believer. Whether thankful for rescue from the jaws of disaster or for every breath, we have much for which we must be thankful.
Being rich is more than money. Rich is love, heritage, friends and loved ones and Christ in whom all true riches are found.
Having few of the goods of this world doesn’t equate to being poor. Lack of money is not what defines richness or poverty, for anyone can have all the “riches” ever needed in life when loved and appreciated by others.
How would we judge He who cannot be judged? Many questions come to mind but ultimately we come to the realization that God alone is The Judge and man will always come up short and in debt.
A quality lacking today in most of us is persistence. To accomplish great things doesn’t take great riches or great brains or fame. It simply takes the ability to persevere, to persist.
