Daily Verse

But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day. The way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know over what they stumble.

Proverbs 4:18–19

 

Daily Reflection

It is often said that the language of Scripture is the language of the Holy Spirit. This is a language that transcends time and place, for the Holy Spirit speak to that eternal longing imprinted in every human heart (Ecclesiastes 3:11). It speaks to that yearning within the heart to recover the righteousness that comes as a precious gift from God.

 

  Food For Thought

You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.

2Timothy 3:10-13

 

Takeaway Question

Many churches teach a watered down theology as if the response from the culture demands a toned down, inoffensive gospel that does not upset the congregants, but also the world at large. But is it the job of the church to just get along or is there a higher calling? Or does Timothy nail it when he says, "everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and imposters will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived"?
