Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

Principles Will not Fix Your Marriage

"Principles will not fix your marriage. Christ alone is the healer...Jesus is either in our midst, or He is not. Jesus is either the healer, or He is not. Reforming marriage requires more than just a few principles, a weekend getaway, and some flowers...It requires more than this. It requires Christ to be at the center of your life, husband...There is an inseparable connection: Christian marriage and the gospel are tied in a bond that cannot be broken. Why? Because marriage is to reflect the relationship between Christ and the church and Jesus is the only one who can heal married couples so that they can live together as heirs of the grace of life... [Peter] offers Jesus Christ to us as the only Savior and Lord of marriage...Let me tell you something. God doesn't heal marriage, Jesus doesn't heal marriage, so you can have a better marriage. He heals marriages so that He can show that there is a King in Zion and to give a testimony to the watching eyes of the world that he is the healer of His people, a Savior, not of words, not of platitudes, but of power, ready to save and heal all who earnestly confess their sins, face their diseased conditions and look to Him as their only Judge, their only lawgiver, their only King and say, 'Lord, You alone can save me.'" Chris Strevel - Christ the Lord and Savior of Marriage
