Getting Over It It

Today’s Verse: “When He approached Jerusalem He saw the city and wept over it.”

There are many threats to the civilized world of today, none worse, I suppose, than that of the northern partition of Korea that’s saying it will demolish the southern section’s capital with an atomic missile attack. Even worse, much of the world is not prepared for the greatest disaster of all, for millions die each day without ever having accepted the Lord Jesus as their savior.
An older preacher sat in his office before the morning sermon staring out a window that overlooked the entire town. A deacon came in, saw the preacher sitting quietly, weeping, and asked why. The preacher answered, “I can see several hundred houses from here and people are going about their affairs, and most of them are lost. . . And I can’t do anything about it.”


Inspired By God

Ponder: Romans 15.4
Today’s Verse: “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness” (2Tim. 3.16).
Paul uses the word “breathed out” in 2nd Timothy 3.16 (ESV). Curiously enough, the first and last occurrence of this word in the Greek New Testament is in 2nd Timothy 3.16. Paul must have created this word under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Scholars suggest the Greek word means inspired by God.


Soldiers of Christ Arise

Today’s Bible Verse: “But those who wait for the Lord’s help find renewed strength; they rise up as if they had eagles’ wings, they run without growing weary, they walk without getting tired” ( Isaiah 40:31).
It was the 4th game between the Warriors and the Nuggets. On the back of every seat was a shirt, gold in color, with four words, Defend, Protect, Battle, Unite. I thought these four words preach a sermon on Christian values.
