Psalm 73:25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

Maclaren:

The true essence of our religion is that we recognise God as our only good, and that in Him we find absolute rest and perfect sufficiency.

do we live as if we believed that the man that had everything minus God is a pauper;

and the other who has God minus everything is ‘rich to all the intents of bliss’?

Let us shape our desires, aspirations, efforts, according to that certain truth.

Gill:

The whole world, and all things in it, are nothing in comparison of God;

if a man was possessed of the whole of it, and had not interest in the Lord, he would be miserable;

and if he has an interest in him, he has enough without it;

for all things are his, God is…

Encouragement in words of strong correction


1 Corinthians 6:9-11

NASB

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God


Praise God forevermore for washing us in His precious blood and making us new creations in Christ!


 

The Brains God Gave You

Into the Foolishness of God

My oldest son recently became a teenager and I attended a meeting for youth group parents at my church. The leaders said they’d be tackling a myriad of topics this year, ranging from respecting one’s parents to unpacking the transgender phenomenon permeating our local high schools. A parent asked, “What curriculum are you using?” The leader responded, “The Bible.” We need more of this, please and thank you.

A really insightful article today at Uncomfortable Grace discussing our need to use the brains God have us when discerning who and what we pledge our allegiance to. In this age of opinions and outrage, we must be careful to not set our minds to autopilot when it comes to deciding where we plant our own flag.

The author cites the fact that people she once trusted have of late, veered from the path of Biblical…

Kelly Ling’s “Christian Quote of the Day – Love”


Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not  arrogant,  does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Christian Quote of the Day – Love
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I wish, brothers and sisters, that we could all imitate ‘the pearl oyster’—A hurtful particle intrudes itself into its shell, and this vexes and grieves it. It cannot reject the evil, but what does it do but ‘cover’ it with a precious substance extracted out of its own life, by which it turns the intruder into a pearl! Oh, that we could do so with the provocations we receive from our fellow Christians, so that pearls of patience, gentleness, and forgiveness might be bred within us by that which otherwise would have harmed us.”

— C. H. Spurgeon
