1 Peter 4:1-2  Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,  that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

Bible Passage of the Week

Psalm 19

 
 
 
 
 
Psalm 19

The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
2 Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.

Two Opposite People

Read a Bible Story from Luke 18

Before reading this passage from the Bible, I would like to make a couple comments about the two people in this story – these two people are complete opposites.

Christian Contentment

Check out the verses of the week...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This year, God has taught me much about contentment.  What should we pursue?  Verse 11 below tells us…  pursue righteousness, Godliness, faith, love, patience, and gentleness.
 
 
 
1 Timothy 6:6-12

Forgiveness

Read a Bible Passage from Matthew 18

Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?”  Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven."
 
 
This afternoon, I was reading this text and was struck by how much God has forgiven me.  When we consider the amount of sin that we have done against God (and that he has forgiven us) we should be humbled and very willing to forgive others who have sinned against us.
