The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Romans 14:8-13

If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Christ died and rose again for this very purpose–to be Lord both of the living and the dead.
So why do you condemn another believer? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. For the Scriptures say, “‘As surely as I live,’ says the LORD, ‘every knee will bend to Me, and every tongue will declare allegiance to God.'” Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall.
Romans 14:8-13 (NLT)

The Joy You Bring Me

Dear God, there are things
we cannot measure
Like the depths of waves and sea
And the heights of stars in heaven
And the joy You bring to me.
Helen Steiner Rice

All that is seen and unseen is under God’s sovereign power.

Alive Unto God — I Don’t Want To Be A Couch-potato Christian

“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” Galatians 2:20 (NASB)
Since Christ is our life, since we possess divine nature, since we are the tabernacle of the Holy Spirit, since we have our sufficiency in Jesus and are complete in Him, it is our duty to reveal Christ to all as we pass through this world on our journey to the Pearly White City.
We are living epistles read of men. Jesus came from heaven’s glory, from the Father’s bosom, to declare God to man. He declared the love of God in all that He said, in all that He did, in every miracle He performed. And since we are commanded to take up the cross and follow Him, walking in His steps, it is our solemn duty (as well as our privilege) to present Christ to all, through the things we do, the words we speak, the songs we sing, the places we go and the company we keep. We are dead to this world, and we are alive unto God.
