For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18The more I see how truly sinful I am, I also see how truly holy God is. If we were to look at the Cross each day, and remember what Jesus did for us, we would start the day off knowing we are forgiven when we deserved punishment. We were made alive, when we deserved death.Jesus has done it! Every sin has been paid for, every evil deed judged, and the full and total price of our redemption purchased at the cross. That is the power of the blood of Jesus. That is the depth of the Father’s love! Salvation is free! Take it!
Should Christians Honor the Legacy of Columbus?
To sing not of self, to seek not to fill the senses, to seek the will only to be quiet before God – that is trust.

The subtle thing about ungodly compromise is that it seems harmless but can often lead to dangerous ones. There are many horrific examples in the Bible where God’s people made ungodly compromises. David compromised by committing adultery with Bathsheba, another man’s wife. This led to numerous sins, including the murder of Uriah, her husband (2 Samuel 11). Samson’s fornication with Delilah, a Philistine harlot led to his death. We should consider these examples as stern warnings for our own lives. In order to walk in integrity and to resist the temptation to compromise God’s laws, we must • Read God’s word God’s word and depend on it to guide our daily decisions. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)• We need to flee from the temptations in life. (2 Timothy 2:22)• Surrender our lives to God. (James 4:7)

There is a difference between believing facts and trusting Christ.
Ecclesiastes 11:5 Just as you do not know the mystery of a baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you do not know the work of God Who makes all things.Life is a mystery written by the Hand of God. It is designed to fulfill the Purpose of God. God works in the same mysterious way in the womb of a mother. The baby is carefully formed and every part mindfully put together. There are no mistakes in the womb. God is present in that small, dark place. When the baby is being formed, He looks upon the baby as unique and special. It is a powerful display of His love. God works with great attention to every detail of our lives. Our past and all that seems dark and hopeless are what moves us into the destiny God has for us. God knows all things. He knows the whys and whats and hows of our path. We have a choice to believe- He knows what He is doing, and that, what we are experiencing is not only temporary, but necessary.
