Gold, Not Dirt

Your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold (1 Peter 1:7, NLT)

Thank God that when He looks at us in His eternal perspective through the blood-stained glasses, stained by the blood of Jesus, He does not see our dirt, but sees something more precious than gold.


A Thawed and Flawed Resurrection

Our earthly bodies, which die and decay, will be different when they are resurrected, for they will never die. Our bodies now disappoint us, but when they are raised, they will be full of glory (1 Corinthians 15:42, NLT)

Because Jesus Christ conquered death and rose from the grave, He will someday bring back to life all those who have put their faith in Him, giving them perfect bodies, just like His own resurrected, glorified body.


King Frederick and the Guilty Criminal

There is someone to plead for you before the Father. He is Jesus Christ…. (1 John 2:1, NLT)

Christians need not falsely proclaim their innocence, but be honest with God and receive His wonderful forgiveness and cleansing according to 1 John 1:9-10: “If we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong. If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts” (NLT).
