Now the series it tied 1-1. The first team to win three games moves onto the next round.
Bed time for me. I get to go to church tomorrow and then we have a team meeting in the afternoon. We were supposed to have off, but I guess since we lost, we are going to have a team meeting. I hope everyone is having a great weekend :)
...while we wait for the blessed hope -- the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.— Titus 2:13-14 (NIV)
Thoughts on Today's Verse...Some of the most basic and elevated statements about Jesus are made in 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus. These letters are devoted to help ministers mature churches in difficult places. They are incredibly practical, but also are rooted in the work of Jesus, his divinity, and his faithfulness. We are waiting for the Faithful One! We trust that he will come for us because of what he sacrificed to redeem us. While we wait, we honor his mission by being a people eager to do what is good, showing in our lives that he is our Lord.
My Utmost For His Highest:
A practical help in keeping your personal purity unblemished in your relations with other people is to begin to see them as God does. Say to yourself, “That man or that woman is perfect in Christ Jesus! That friend or that relative is perfect in Christ Jesus!”
Our Daily Bread:
Don’t compromise the Word of God
Or twist what He has said;
For blessing comes from faithfully
Proclaiming truth instead. —Sper
The purpose of sharing God’s truth is to profit others,
not to prosper ourselves.
