Are You Prepared to Suffer With Joy! We must align our hearts with the Risen Christ!
May the Love of God through Christ overwhelm, engulf and dwell in your richly!
Words from our Great Shepherd, Jesus the Christ, may we have ears to hear and hearts open to follow HIM!
“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.” Matthew 5:10-12 "You have heard that it was said, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.' "But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.…” Matthew 5:43-45
BE BLESSED and REJOICE!
A Fool Compares Himself With Others; We Must Look, Behold and Glory At and In Christ In Light of Ourselves!
The Same Cross and Blood That Forgives Men of Murder and Rape Forgives Men of Gossip, Slander, Pride, Complaining and Unbelief.
What best describes the attitude of my prayer life and how I view others? What best describes how I speak of myself and refrain from speaking about anyone else other than in love? Religious man, listen and repent! "An evildoer pays attention to wicked lips. A liar opens his ears to a slanderous tongue." Proverbs 17:4
"Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted." Luke 18:10-14
May we fix our eyes on the author and finisher of our faith, Jesus Christ Himself.
We don't need to print this out and read it to our spouse or brother, it is for ME.......
