No More Pain by Max Lucado
“There will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain, because all the old ways are gone.” Rev 21:4
Folks, if you’re expecting to be given a fair shake in your life, forget it! You won’t be. You’re going to face illness. And your body is going to wear out. You may be the victim of someone else’s mistake. But you can get through those tough times if you prepare your heart now, living to know and serve the Savior who loves you and died so that you might have an eternal home free of pain and sorrow.
“The fact that the Law of God is not "well recognized" is the fault of neither the Law of God nor the moral relativist. It is the fault of those who are instructed to meditate in that Law day and night (Ps. 1), walk in those commandments as Jesus did (1 Jn. 2:1-6), and build communities of love for God and neighbor on their foundation (Matt. 22:34-40), but who, instead, have failed to embrace the Law as they should and practice, in its place, a kind of "spiritual moral relativism" in the name of sentimental love and sanctimonious "tolerance." ~ T.M. Moore in Morals and Emotions
Restore us, O God Almighty; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved. Psalm 80:7
A country boy was asked what difference Christ had made in his life. He replied: “I feel better now when I feel bad, than I used to feel when I felt good.” ~ J. K. Gressett
"The church, you see, is not peripheral to the world; the world is peripheral to the church.” Ephesians 1:22-23 (The Message)
