1 Peter 2:6-8 – Your Choice

Your Choice

“…For it stands in Scripture: “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.” So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe, “The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,” and “A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.” They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do…” – ESV / Commentary

There is a story going around of a 22 year old lady called Petra Anderson. Petra was one of the critically injured people in the recent Aurora shooting debacle in Denver. There were 12 immediate deaths and 58 injured when James Holmes opened fire on unsuspecting members of the public in a movie theatre. The story demonstrates God’s providence even in the most bleak and extra ordinary circumstances. The story is recounted by her pastor:

Petra was hit four times with a shot-gun blast, three shots into her arm and one bullet which entered her brain. This is a bit of Petra’s miracle story.
With awesome people from our caring and pastoral team, I spent all day Friday in the ICU with Petra and her family. Her injuries were severe, and her condition was critical. A bullet had entered Petra’s face through her nose, and then traveled up through her…

Faithful in the Small Things

Faithful in the Small Thinks
(click picture to learn what Harvest America is all about)

A message from Pastor Greg Laurie – host of Harvest America 2012;

“On one of my recent trips to tell people about Harvest America, a woman named Carol invited me to their home and told me that three years ago the Lord spoke to her heart and asked her if she was willing to be obedient to Him in small things. She said, “Yes Lord.” So the Lord instructed her to pick up a penny off the street and she obeyed.

Thus began three years of obedience in small things. In those three years, she was not told what to do with the money she was saving…until just a few weeks ago. She said that when I contacted her to tell her about Harvest America, the Lord told her that this is what her obedience is to be used for!…..” Continue Reading the rest Here.

More testing for Puffiness In Your Marriage

Here is the second half of the study; Getting The Puffiness Out of Your Marriage. Swim The Deep blog ministries really hits home as they present to you more tests to prove your puffiness and scriptures for guidance to get out of that stuffy air and into a right relationship with your spouse and God….

The Deep End

Last time we looked at some tests to see if you are vaunting yourself or puffing yourself up in your marriage.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

I Corinthians 13:4 (emphasis added)

Here is the second half of the ten tests:

Test Six: Do you insist on your spouse taking your side in every outside conflict?

Sometimes even the most prideful people will self-deprecatingly point out that they are not always right. But this is aiming too low. Being the “least sinful” person among a race of sinful people is like being the valedictorian of summer school.

dunce

 

When I admit that I am “not always right,” but I still insist that my wife side with me unquestioningly in every conflict, I am guilty of using God’s daughter to help “puff myself up.”

Then went king David in…

Getting The Puffiness Out Of Your Marriage

An awesome study to read, take in, and apply if you are Married or Engaged to be. Test your puffiness in your relationship today and get back on track with your marriage and relationship with God. Re-bloged from Swim the Deep End Christian blog ministries…

The Deep End

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

I Corinthians 13:4 (emphasis added)

Vaunting myself is high-handed pride. The word “vaunting” is from the same origin as the word “vanity:” something which looks substantial, but is really lacking in substance. Vanity is emptiness masquerading as fullness. Vaunting is attempting to disguise this emptiness with loud boasting.

Being “puffed up” is filling myself with vanity, but it differs from “vaunting.” Vaunting involves trying to fool other people. When I am “puffed up” I am making no special attempt to fool anyone but myself. In other words, vaunting makes me feel good because it makes you think I’m something I’m not. Puffing up makes me feel good because it makes me think I’m something I’m not.

Here are some tests to see if you are vaunting yourself or puffing yourself…
