Learn to do better!

Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you. Heb 13:17

(NLT- Obey your spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit. Heb 13:17) Continue reading

I see – I covet

When I saw among the spoils a beautiful Babylonian garment, two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold weighing fifty shekels, I coveted them and took them. Josh 7:21 Continue reading

What possesses you?

Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.” Mark 10:21 Continue reading

It doesn’t change a thing.

And it happened, when Jehudi had read three or four columns, that the king cut it with the scribe’s knife and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the scroll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth. Jer 36:23 Continue reading

Victory is Mine!

An East Texas school will no longer read scripture during the morning announcements. This decision comes after a formal complaint was filed with the school by the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

That organization says the practice of Biblical readings is not only offensive to non-Christians, but against the law. According to the FFRF, the decision is a win.

How sad it is when removal of Christ from society is considered a victory.

Let me share my victory!

Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Cor 15:57

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith. 1 John 5:4

In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Rom 8:37

We sometimes sing a song in church:

Victory is mine,
victory is mine,
victory today is mine.

I told Satan to get thee behind,
victory today is mine.

The FFRF did not win – they lost!

Jesus said this and it may be a bit of a stretch but I think it’s appropriate,

For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Mark 8:35-36
