Indeed, the word of God is living and active;…it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us give thanks, by which we offer to God an acceptable worship with reverence and awe, for indeed God is a consuming fire.
…and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross.
Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, for whoever would approach him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be content with what you have; for he has said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.”
Therefore, brothers and sisters, holy partners in a heavenly calling, consider that Jesus…was faith to the one who appointed him….
By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to set out for a place that he was to receive as an inheritance; and he set out not knowing where he was going.
Do not neglect to do good and share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
Word and Image
offers two parts of my morning ritual, scripture and visual art. I make no
attempt to related the two (as I do in my daily quote and blog entries) and
yet, sometimes that will happen, for as we know God works in mysterious ways.
