1 Peter 5:10
But after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called us to His eternal glory through Christ Jesus, will restore, support, strengthen, and establish you.
Thank You, Lord, that with less of me, there is more of You.
Those who know there is nothing good in themselves are happy, because the holy nation of heaven is theirs.
1 Corinthians 15:32
Do you think I was just trying to act heroic when I fought the wild beasts at Ephesus, hoping it wouldn’t be the end of me? Not on your life! It’s resurrection, resurrection, always resurrection, that undergirds what I do and say, the way I live. If there’s no resurrection, “We eat, we drink, the next day we die,” and that’s all there is to it.
Every person the Father gives Me eventually comes running to Me. And once that person is with Me, I hold on and don’t let go.
Jesus said, “I am the Bread of Life. The person who aligns with Me hungers no more and thirsts no more, ever. I have told you this explicitly because even though you have seen Me in action, you don’t really believe Me.
Let me give you some good advice; I’m looking you in the eye and giving it to you straight:
2 Corinthians 3:4-5
We dare to say these good things about ourselves only because of our great trust in God through Christ, that He will help us to be true to what we say, and not because we think we can do anything of lasting value by ourselves. Our only power and success comes from God.
