Dwelling on the Word of God: Eternal Life: The Gift of Gifts! (Monday 31st March 2014)

From today’s Psalm (Psalm 29:2,4-6,11-13):
 
‘I will praise you, Lord, you have rescued me.’
 
 
It’s easy to forget that we wouldn’t be here had it not been for the Love of God.  It’s also easy to forget that through Jesus Christ we were saved by God after sin and death entered the world.
 
How often do we thank God for these great gifts?  We all lead busy lives in today’s world and it is hard to think about anything other than preparing the kids for yet another weekend birthday party, or the next big deal at work, or paying that pesky Sky TV bill.  Very few people are exempt from the 100mph lifestyle that is so common in today’s society. 
 
Yet the bottom line is that we wouldn’t be experiencing any of this had it not been for God.  We simply wouldn’t exist.  And He has not only given us life here on earth; He has promised a life in Heaven with Him forever!  How does that compare to the latest Mercedes-Benz model or that beautiful dress in Oxford Street ?  It’s a gift no car manufacturer or fashion designer could ever offer.  Indeed, nobody here on earth can offer eternal life.  Only God can offer this gift of gifts!
 
While nobody need be without the pleasures of life if it so pleases them and they can afford it, we cannot put God to the side or even out of the picture completely as is often the case in our world.  He must always be at the centre of everything we do.  For it is by His grace that we exist and it is by His grace that we have received the gift of eternal life.

This passage from the book of Wisdom is a perfect insight into the persecution of Jesus Christ that is to come a few hundred years later. It is also an incredible insight into the minds of Jesus’ persecutors. It highlights, in a striking way, the beauty of the Word of God.

It is much better to calculate the monthly payment and then take the mortgage for any phase. Business Automation lets companies offer branded support, promotions, and detailed reporting to support your nike training shoes cheap ing efforts. Those with huge amounts of money, fame, power and gifts are often enabled and followed by what I describe in Why Good People Do Bad Things as the Entitled Supporters.

As a result of their sin, their children and all of us inherited a sinful nature. In other words, our offspring are not perfect in nature -- we don't have to teach children to be selfish. They know it naturally. That which is sinful cannot produce that which is not sinful.

How to Critique nike training shoes women Even Though You Aren't a nike training shoes cheap ianJust because you aren't a nike training shoes women ian doesn't mean you can't express an honest critique of nike training shoes sale . Instead, as you walk down a side street you hear bits of conversation between guards, merchants calling for you to come browse their wares and the mutterings of common folk as they try to complete their day to day tasks.

I am a christian. The religion is loving and believing in God and his son Jesus. You ask Jesus in to your heart and he will live there for eternity. When you die, and if you have Jesus in your heart, You will go to heaven.
