​What is life…? #FoodForThought

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.

​Jesus is coming back! This reality is firmer than the ground you stand on.

Romans 8:24-25

That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don’t see what is enlarging us. But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy.

​Happy song!

Zephaniah 3:17-18

For the Lord your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will give you victory. He will rejoice over you with great gladness; He will love you and not accuse you.” Is that a joyous choir I hear? No, it is the Lord Himself exulting over you in happy song.
“I have gathered your wounded and taken away your reproach.

#PrayerForTheWeek – Adoption

 Thank You Lord for choosing us & loving us. 
Ephesians 1:4-6 
Long before He laid down earth’s foundations, He had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of His love, to be made whole and holy by His love. Long, long ago He decided to adopt us into His family through Jesus Christ. What pleasure He took in planning this! He wanted us to enter into the celebration of His lavish gift-giving by the hand of His beloved Son.
