The Spirit is Willing, But the Flesh is Weak
What do we do when we find out that we are not as strong as we thought, but we are actually weak? What do you do when you are faced with the realization that you are not capable of living up to your own standard of success and godliness and strength?
When we celebrate Advent we are celebrating the coming of the promised Messiah. Advent is a celebration of promises. And that’s because we ourselves are a people of promise.
No Glory without Suffering, No Suffering without Glory
“We will be glorified with Him, provided we suffer with Him” (Romans 8:17). In other words, there’s no glory without suffering, but there’s also no suffering without glory.
Worship in Spirit and in Truth
Jesus says that those who worship in spirit and in truth are “true worshipers.” So if we are going to fully understand what Jesus means, we have to explore what worship is, then we have to determine what it means to worship in spirit and what it means to worship in truth.
Something Greater Than Ourselves
“…and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.” – 2 Corinthians 5:15
