Word on the WAY
May 20 – May 27, 2013
All passages are from The New Living Translation
Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light."
Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyoneâ€”especially to those in the family of faith.
