Hope for Tomorrow 12-27

Today, we face a scenario quite unlike anything the world has seen before. And, no matter which side of the aisle you stand politically, hope in the government is, most likely, long gone. I hear so often that this must be the end of days. And there is a part of me that hopes that it is. But it may not be. Like the Israelites, Christ may not come and rescue us from our current situation. BUT, He has promised that He will return! He is coming back for those that accept the gift of His life, for those that seek after Him.

Concerning Sacrifice 10-4

Denying yourself is essential if you are a Christian. Jesus called upon those who wish to be His followers to reject the natural inclination toward selfishness. This is what Paul is telling us and the Corinthians: we are called to do this so that others won’t stumble, so that we do not hinder the gospel! In order to do that we must crucify the flesh. In Galatians 5:24 we are told, “Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”
