“Christ is the absolute master over all material substance.” -John Piper

Take the time to read and reflect on these passages from Scripture:

Isaiah 9:6
Luke 2:1-21

Thought for the Day

December 14, 2008

“It is an old tale. From Cain (Genesis 4:9) to Clinton, truth has been sacrificed to desire, and the mind has been shrewdly employed by the darkened heart shroud it’s passions. We are all given to this. Our only hope is the transforming work of God in our hearts to free us from the bondage of a hardened heart that produces a futile mind (Ephesians 4:17-18; Romans 6:17).”

-John Piper

Who Are We?

December 3, 2008

Who are we?

Are we antitheist, which “attempts to build his or her own life in the belief that there is no God and that there are no supernatural entities” (Zacharias 17)?

Or are we material-seeking individuals who will do anything and everything to find solice and comfort in this world?

Or are we God-fearing people who are in the trenches fighting the good fight of faith, giving up our comforts in this world for the Crown in the world to come, and will do all that he or she can to spread the gospel not wanting anyone to perish?

I’m afraid that I fall into the three scenarios, but I am confident of my status in the shed blood of Christ my Saviour and of the Spirit that has kept me ultimately from corruption and distraction. It is by His grace alone that I am free and may approach the Throne with confidence to ask forgiveness and to ask for aid in my struggles.

So, friend how about you?
