“But just as at that time when the child who was born according to the flesh persecuted the Child who was born according to the Spirit, so it is now also … For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and submit never again to a yoke of slavery.” ~ Paul (Galatians 4:29+5:1) […]

Remembering an earlier Integrity … (03/30/17)

2 Corinthians 12:8-9 … A 3rd Appeal (03/30/17)

“Three times I appealed to the Lord … But He said to me: My Grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect through temptations of weakness.” ~ Paul (2 Corinthians 12:8-9)   Interestingly enough, Paul was answered here in direct accordance with the weakness of his query.  For we are not to […]

All our Worth & Meaning … (03/27/17)

2 Corinthians 2:17 … As those sent from God (03/27/17)

“In Christ we speak as persons of sincerity; as those sent from God and standing in His presence.” ~ Paul (2 Corinthians 2:17)   Actually, the vast majority of the time those who are truly “in Christ” are serving others and not speaking at all … That having been said, it is possible to “speak […]
