RE: READING THE NEW TESTAMENT IN 30 DAYS

     I read half of today’s assignment this morning and I am attacking the second half this evening. I am really excited about reading larger portions of God’s Word at one setting. I am getting much more out of this method than my usual daily reading.

“TRY IT, YOU’LL LIKE IT”

Gene

p.s.  Here is our guiding principle for the New Year:

“DAILY DELVE INTO THE WORD OF GOD IN 2012”

____________________________________________________________

“Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us; we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.” (2 Cor. 5:20)

COMMENT: This world is not our home; we are ambassadors of Christ. Our situation is similar to the condition we had when the Soviet Union was intact. Although we were enemies, each country exchanged emissaries. Suppose the American ambassadors became so enthralled with socialism and autocratic rule that they embraced that philosophy rather than democracy. That can be likened to Children of God who live in this world when they adopt or continue in the sinful ways of this world. This planet is just our temporary home; you might say it’s a “stop over”. In the Army, we used to call this TDY (Temporary Duty). Our home is Heaven. We represent Jesus and those in the world should see Jesus in us and want to emulate us and receive Him as Lord and Savior also. 
SCRIPTURE STUDY: Matthew 5:13-16 and 2 Cor. 3:2&3 
WISE SAYING: I’D RATHER SEE A SERMON THAN TO HEAR ONE ANY DAY. I’D RATHER ONE WOULD WALK WITH ME, THAN MERELY SHOW THE WAY.
