Life Eternal Is On The Line

Revelation 14:6-7

Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth--to every nation, tribe, language and people. (7) He said in a loud voice, "Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water."

God Invented Family

Mark 10:2-16

Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?" (3) "What did Moses command you?" he replied. (4) They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away." (5) "It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied. (6) "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' (7) For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, (8) and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. (9) Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." (10) When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. (11) He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. (12) And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery." (13) People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. (14) When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. (15) I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." (16) And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.

God Has Done All Things Well

Mark 7:31-37

Then Jesus left the vicinity of Tyre and went through Sidon, down to the Sea of Galilee and into the region of the Decapolis. (32) There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged him to place his hand on the man. (33) After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man's ears. Then he spit and touched the man's tongue. (34) He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, "Ephphatha!" (which means, "Be opened!"). (35) At this, the man's ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly. (36) Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it. (37) People were overwhelmed with amazement. "He has done everything well," they said. "He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak."

Walk With a Purpose

Ephesians 5:15-20

Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, (16) making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. (17) Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is. (18) Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. (19) Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, (20) always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
