Sun to Rise

Sun Still Shines

For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. -Mt 5:45

It is September 23rd and the Lord still makes his sun rise and his rains fall. Both on the just and the unjust. Where the beauty of his people still walk this earth. Where the love of Christ is still made plain to those who are his.

Absorption & Resonance

In Psalms 119:9, it is said that the way to keep yourself pure is to treasure His word in your heart. Let the words of Christ richly dwell within you. It is one thing to dwell on His words and treasure them, it is another thing to study, meditate, apply and keep from forgetting them (Ps. 119:15-16).


Freedom in Christ

“Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor. Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust. For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly.”
– 1 Pet 2:16-18

I am free.
