To Be With Jesus

Romans 8:37-39 No matter what comes, we are more than conquerors through Christ, who loved us. For I am absolutely convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love.

To Confound

Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you.

To Go Where Jesus Went

Jesus suffered and died outside the city gates to make his people holy by means of his own blood. So let us go out to him,  outside the city,  and bear the disgrace he bore.  For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come. Therefore, let…

To Recognize The End

Just as the gathering of vultures  shows there is a carcass nearby,  so these signs indicate  that the end is near. After the distress of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will give no light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. That…

To Receive A New Identity

Anyone who belongs to Jesus Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Jesus. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Jesus,…
