The Riches of Christ

What are the riches of Christ? 

 Peace of mind, Joy in spite of circumstances, opportunities to share in God's work.
In what ways can we enjoy these "riches of God?" 
Through prayer, we can bring the pain or burden  of another to God for help.

Galatians 6:2 says, "Bear one another's burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ."

 When we reach out to another to help in their pain, we will receive a blessing as well. If we share the riches of Christ, we must be willing to share in the work of Christ.

Treasures From God

"God has made us what we are.  He has created us in Christ Jesus to live lives filled with good works that He has prepared for us to do."

Don't Give Up!

Are you ever tempted to give up on life?

I think we've all had life throw us a punch that we didn't think we could handle.
But, I found a promise we can stand on and, I just have to share it with you!

 God has promised to stick with us through thick and thin.

"So we're not giving up. How could we! 
Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without His unfolding grace.
The hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us.  There's far more here than meets the eye.  The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow.  But the things we can't see now will last forever.
Just remember, when it feels like things are falling apart, God's on the inside just rearranging 'the furniture'!

2 Corinthians Ch. 4:16-18 (The Message)

The Chain Breaker!

Jesus Christ is the Chain breaker!

'"You can tell for sure that you are now fully adopted as His own children because God sent the Spirit of His Son into our lives crying out, "Papa! Father!" Doesn't that privilege of intimate conversation with God make it plain that you are not a slave, but a child?  And if you are a child, you're an  heir, with complete access to the inheritance."

Galatians 4:6-7  The Message Bible
