Again he said, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.
If a commission by an earthly king is considered a honor, how can a commission by a Heavenly King be considered a sacrifice?
~ David Livingstone
So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God's Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, "Abba, Father."
If anybody understands God’s order for his children, it’s someone who has rescued an orphan from despair, for that is what God has done for us.
God has adopted you. God sought you, found you, signed the papers and took you home.
~ Max Lucado
But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. (Colossians 3:23)
Anything done to the glory of God always sets in motion a rendezvous with future blessing.
~ Pastor Bob
