James 1:27

James 1:27

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.

After Thought

There is too much huff and puff and spit and spray spoken by many Christians. Real faith is an action based upon truth.

Isaiah 40:29

Isaiah 40:29

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

After Thought

There are times we will feel fearful, weak, and vulnerable, but the Lord will give us strength and courage. In tenderness He heals wounded souls. It says of the Lord, "He will not crush the weakest reed or put out a flickering candle." (Matthew 12:20)

1 John 4:8

1 John 4:8

But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

After Thought

Love is the very first fruit that appears in the life of a person who has received the seeds of the Gospel. It is refreshing, healing, and comforting to those who partake of God's love growing through us.

Jude 1:2

Jude 1:2

May mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you.

After Thought

Our pets have a way of communicating these three expressions of God. They provide unconditional love the moment we walk in the door. They are merciful always ready to forgive us with the wag of a tail, and they supply peace by quiet companionship.

God has created so many ways to reveal to us His attributes.

Matthew 28:8

Matthew 28:8

And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.

After Thought

The resurrection of Christ, as it is the joy of his friends, so it is the terror and confusion of his enemies. Jesus is the only founder of a religion that proved that His words were true by rising from the dead. That proof should inspire awe and great joy.
