From today’s reading...
…and those who live by their natural inclinations can never be pleasing to God.” Romans 8:8
God gave us free will, and we abuse it daily, if not hourly.
Strong bodies and incredulous athletic feats and amazing scientific discoveries do not just happen.
They take effort…discipline…focused work for years, if not a lifetime.
Ditto for your salvation.
Strive to form your conscience.
Pick up your cross and follow Jesus.
He knows it’s painful since He willingly picked up His own cross, despite being innocent, to show us how it’s done.
We deserve worse, but God only gives us what we can handle and still be able to...
Stay the course.
Keep the faith.
Market like you mean it. Now go sell something.
