1 Corinthians 15:49

1 Corinthians 15:49

Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly.

After Thought

This dog is a humorous reminder that we all bear two images. The first is the obvious image of mankind that is temporal. The second is eternal. We carry in us the image of our Father in heaven.

1 John 1:7

1 John 1:7

But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.

After Thought

Darkness separates us from one another. Even healthy eyes cannot see in total darkness. God's presence in our lives gives us the ability to truly see.

Psalm 71:9

Psalm 71:9

Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone.

After Thought

His faithful friend bore with him the burdens of youth and now he faithfully bears the burdens of her old age. She still gets to go where he goes. A true testament of love and friendship that mirrors God's promise that "He will never leave us nor forsake us." (Deuteronomy 31:6)

Psalm 111:5

He provides food for those who fear him; He remembers his covenant forever.

After Thought

We can be certain that God will give us the strength and resources we need to live through any situation in life that he ordains. The will of God will never take us where the grace of God cannot sustain us.

Isaiah 42:3

Isaiah 42:3

A bruised reed He will not break and a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish; He will faithfully bring forth justice.

After Thought

I choose gentleness… Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice may it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.

Isaiah 49:9

Isaiah 49:9

Saying to those who are bound, 'Go forth,' To those who are in darkness, 'Show yourselves.' Along the roads they will feed, and their pasture will be on all bare heights.

After Thought

We are called to be witnesses and to share the message of the Gospel wherever we go. It is good news of a great joy which is for all people. Simply put, through Christ there is a solution for all the pain and hurt the sins of mankind have caused.

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.

Psalm 32:5

Psalm 32:5

Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, "I will confess my rebellion to the LORD." And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.

After Thought

God loves you even in your darkest hours. He comforts you even in your darkest moments. He forgives you even in your darkest failures.

John 4:13-14

John 4:13-14

13 Jesus answered and said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life."

After Thought

Christ shows that the water of Jacob's well yielded a very short satisfaction. Of whatever waters of comfort we drink, we shall thirst again. But ...

Luke 11:34

Luke 11:34

The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness.

After Thought

What do these eyes seem to be saying to you?

Where words are restrained, the eyes often talk a great deal.
