17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. 19 For God was in Christ,Continue reading “Share the News”

Stand Strong

6 My enemies have set a trap for me.    I am weary from distress.They have dug a deep pit in my path,    but they themselves have fallen into it. Psalm 57:6 NLT No matter what people may plot or say against you, no matter how weary you become, just stand strong in your faith. Remain confident of God’sContinue reading “Stand Strong”

Covered by the Shadow of His Wings

1 Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy!    I look to you for protection.I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings    until the danger passes by.2 I cry out to God Most High,    to God who will fulfill his purpose for me.3 He will send help from heaven to rescue me,    disgracing those who hound me. InterludeMy God will send forthContinue reading “Covered by the Shadow of His Wings”

Wake Up

7 My heart is confident in you, O God;    my heart is confident.    No wonder I can sing your praises!8 Wake up, my heart!    Wake up, O lyre and harp!    I will wake the dawn with my song.9 I will thank you, Lord, among all the people.    I will sing your praises among the nations.10 For your unfailing love is as high as theContinue reading “Wake Up”

May the Love of Christ Always Control Us

14 Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life.15 He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.Continue reading “May the Love of Christ Always Control Us”

Resist Hook and Bait

13 A foolish woman is clamorous;She is simple, and knows nothing.14 For she sits at the door of her house,On a seat by the highest places of the city,15 To call to those who pass by,Who go straight on their way:16 “Whoever is simple, let him turn in here”;And as for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,17 “Stolen water is sweet,And bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”18 But heContinue reading “Resist Hook and Bait”

Never Give Up

Prior to the following scripture, Paul was encouraging the church with the following: God will raise us from the dead as He did Jesus. We will one day stand before Him. His grace is being poured out. This will bring more and more thanks to God for His glory. He then said the following inContinue reading “Never Give Up”

Trust and Praise

God, people have attacked me, so be merciful to me.    They have been chasing me all day, closing in to attack me.2 My enemies come at me constantly.    There are too many fighters to count.3 When I am afraid,    I put my trust in you.4 I trust God, so I am not afraid of what people can do to me!    I praiseContinue reading “Trust and Praise”

Trust God, He Listens

I love the psalmist’s cry to God in Psalm 55. He is so real with God. He asks for God to hear him and not ignore him. He asks for God to listen and answer him. He then says in verse 2 ERV; Let me speak to you and tell you what upsets me. HeContinue reading “Trust God, He Listens”

Reflecting Jesus

 3 You show that you are a letter from Christ that he sent through us. This letter is not written with ink but with the Spirit of the living God. It is not written on stone tablets but on human hearts.4 We can say this, because through Christ we feel sure before God. 5 I don’t mean that we areContinue reading “Reflecting Jesus”
