My Favorite Verses - Vol I (thru Sept 14)

… a collection of brief commentaries on some of the Bible’s most beloved (and least understood) passages, parables, verses & sayings

2 Corinthians 5:17 …

2 Corinthians 5:17 … real Salvation (09/27/2013) It is indeed high time for us all to aspire to something more than mere "wealth" or "fun" or "power" or "redemption" … It is time for us all to change our perception of what it means to live "the good life" … It is time for us all to alter our definitions of "happiness" & "pleasure" & "comfort" … And it is time we all did so by enlivening our LOVE. Striving for money will make you the poorest of the poor, striving for power will make you the weakest of the weak, & striving for salvation will make you the damnedest of the damned. my Friends, to know true Peace, we must escape the shackles of economy by giving first and taking never … To know true Joy, we must escape the prison of judgment by forgiving first and retaliating never … To know true Bliss, we must leave the concentration camp of arrogance by caring first and condemning never. For this is what it means to be truly Free … This is what it means to be truly Saved … This is what it means to be truly "in Christ" … This is what it means to be truly "enlightened" … This is what it means to be truly Human … This is what it means to be truly Alive. So ... got Life? “The Meaning of your life is to find your Gifts … The Purpose of your life is to then give them away.” ~ unknown "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; Behold, the new has arrived." ~ Paul (in 2 Corinthians 5:17) 34

Deuteronomy 33:12 … the House of the LORD (11/20/2013) Four images … forty words … one TRUTH. 35
