2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. [The Bible]
All of us have sought worldly pleasures and goals. As Jesus’ Second Coming draws near, we must come to Jesus, ask for forgiveness for our sins and ask Him to be our Personal Saviour. Then God will regard us as His children! How great it is to have God, the Father… and Jesus Christ as our Brother!
Yesterday, clean-face Catholic, Paul Ryan, joined Mitt Romney‘s campaign of lies, ossification and making our election an exercise in the final struggle between “good versus evil.” Pray that when RNC Chairman Reince Priebus appears on “Meet the Press” today, God will warm his heart and have him denounce the Mitt Romney Campaign. God bless President Barack Obama with a win in November! God bless America!
Watered with kindness…
By Dr. Lawrence Wilkes, Crystal Cathedral Pastor
God’s kindness and redemption comes in many different forms. As we look throughout the Bible, beginning, of course, in Genesis with Adam and Eve, there is redemption immediately as they sin and come short of the glory of God as they eat of the forbidden fruit. They did what God had told them not to do.
This becomes the story of every one of us – we’ve all fallen, all come short of the glory of God, and all have sinned. But immediately – even in the story of Adam and Eve – there is redemption. God, in his deep understanding of each one of us, his beloved children, provides a way of escape…and teaches us how to grow into the people he’s designed us to be!
Prayer: Please show me, God, where I’ve fallen short. Forgive my lack of faith and obedience. Help me to trust in your greatness and to believe that positive possibilities await me as I follow you. Amen.
Reflection: Ask God to show you where you need to come more in alignment in his plan for your life. Then invite him to help you grow past your fears to new and positive possibilities that await you.
