Scripture at Sunrise

So this isn’t exactly at sunrise, but give me your suggestions for a title for daily devotions!

What’s It All About?

It’s about the painting, not the frame; it’s about the treasure, not the vessel; it’s about His truth, not our opinions; it’s about His glory, not our looks; it’s about His love, not our niceness; it’s about His purpose, not our plans; it’s about His kingdom, not our agenda; it’s about His reign, not our rights; it’s about His life, not our efforts. It’s about Jesus!

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 3:18

For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, 2 Corinthians 4:6-7

Wasn’t yesterday morning’s message a great reminder to keep your Sword constantly drawn so the devil doesn’t catch you off guard! I tend to give my Sword a break sometimes…not a good idea!
I missed being with you all last night, but I did enjoy helping my Uncle Mike set up to sing at Silas Baptist Church in Bourbon County, especially considering I only get to see him about twice a year.

I will be updating the “Links of the Week” section throughout the week as I see stuff I think you’ll enjoy.  Nothing really “stuck-out” on my last run-through of blogs.  So, keep checking here for updated info and interesting links!

I love you all!

  • Pray every day for the Lord to send someone your way who needs to hear the Gospel!
