Bible Verse of the Week

Read an Old Testament Prophecy

Isaiah 53:5-6
“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healted.  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”
 

Psalm 90

Read the Bible passage of the week

Psalm 90:12
So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
 
Compared to eternity, life is actually very very short.  When was the last time that you stopped and counted the approximate number of days that the average person lives?  When we understand that we are on the doorstep of eternity, then it really does change how we view heaven and hell, how we view the good news of Jesus Christ, and how we view life.
 

Faithfulness

Consider the Life of Joseph

Faithfulness
 
 
God has called us to a life a faithfulness no matter what the situation. This morning, I was reading the story of Joseph as we see in Genesis 37-46. Joseph had many challenges – in his father’s house, in the pit, in slavery, in prison, leading Egypt. We know the end of the story, but he didn’t. He didn’t know the twists and turns ahead of him, but he was faithful to God in all the situations, and God used him in mighty ways to save a nation and bring glory to God.
