So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules about food, which don’t help those who follow them.
For He who is mighty has done great things for me,
And holy is His name.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
…it is the belief that God will do what is right.
1 Corinthians 3:18-20
Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”
…trust in God!
As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
But here is what I tell you. Love your enemies. Pray for those who hurt you. Then you will be children of your Father who is in heaven. He causes His sun to shine on evil people and good people. He sends rain on those who do right and those who don’t.
“You are worthy, our Lord and God! You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power.
You are worthy because You created all things. They were created and they exist. This is the way You planned it.”
We were made not primarily that we may love God (though we were made for that too) but that God may love us, that we may become objects in which the Divine love may rest ‘well pleased’. #CSLewis
