Thoughts For The Day

I think age is a very high price to pay for maturity.

Keep some company with people who inspire you.

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.


Motivation For The Day

We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.

Personal Story Of The Day


     And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
     Job 19:26

References from 1 Corinthians 15:35-58

After John Quincy Adams, the sixth president of the United States, suffered a stroke in 1846, a friend asked him about his health. Adams replied, I inhabit a weak, frail, decayed tenement; battered by the winds and broken in upon by the storms, and from all I can learn, the landlord does not intend to repair.

Adams was only half-right. Although the believers body may be a tenement that God does not intend to repair, it is a dwelling place that He plans to rebuild. At the resurrection the believer will receive an entirely reconstructed body.

The Corinthians were skeptical about the possibility of resurrection and wondered what kind of body could be reconstituted out of a rotting corpse. To some extent, their skepticism was warranted. The doctrine of the resurrection would make little sense if the believers body remained the same. The resurrected body will be radically different than the one the believer possessed at death. Paul uses words like incorruptionn, glory, and power to describe it (v4243). It will be a real body but will be spiritual in nature (v44)... suited for the spiritual, eternal realm. Although we often think of something spiritual as being opposite to what is physical, in this case Paul is describing something whose physical nature is also spiritual. In verses 4550, Paul explains what he means by spiritual. The believers resurrected body will be a body that reflects the life of Christ, the second Adam. It will be a body that has been freed from the curse of sin and the struggle caused by the sinful nature... that aspect of human nature that is sometimes referred to as the flesh (cf. Rom. 8:12-13; 13:14). This transformation will occur when Christ returns for the Church.

It is this hope that motivates the believer to serve Christ (v58). A life lived for Christ is never in vain because the hope of the resurrection is grounded in the certainty of ultimate victory. It is the basis for our confidence of eternal life. Christs death and resurrection have done more than purchase our forgiveness, they have also earned a reward for our labor.

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day


In his famous painting titled A Helping Hand, Emile Renouf depicted an old fisherman seated in a boat, with a young girl beside him. Both the elderly gentleman and the child have their hands on a huge oar. The fisherman is looking down fondly and admiringly at the girl.

Apparently the man has told the child that she may assist him in rowing the boat, and in her desire to help she feels as though she is doing a great share of the task. However, it's obvious that it's his strong, muscular arms that are moving the heavy oar through the water.

I see a parable in this painting. Christ has granted to us the privilege of sharing in His work here on earth. We must never forget, however, that we cannot perform our tasks through our abilities alone, but only as God works in and through us. While He directs us to put our hand on the oar, we must ever be aware of the ultimate source of our power. He is the strength of our life! There can be no true progress spiritually without the power of the Holy Spirit to underpin our life and all that we do.

Let's recognize our own weakness and echo the cry of the psalmist: "I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only." (71:16). Then we will not faint nor fail.

The Kingdom of God

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

It is important to understand that God is rich. Rich in glory. Rich in love. Rich in everything you and I need. In Him there has never been any lack. The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine,' says the Lord of hosts (Haggai 2:8). When Paul wrote the letter to the Philippians, he was in prison. He was in a situation of lack. Nonetheless, His attitude was that he could manage in any situation. He could be rich or he could be poor. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. (Philippians 4:12).

But he was joyful that the Philippian church had helped meet his needs. He even said, Indeed I have all and abound (verse 18). He experienced God's care in an abundant way, even while he was in prison. Therefore, he assured the church that God also would meet their needs according to His riches in glory. What does this mean? It means that God does not meet our needs by supplying the bare minimum. He does not respond according to our lack but according to His riches. He does not supply merely to cover our needs, but through Jesus Christ, He meets all our needs in a wonderful way.

Abraham came to know God as El Shaddai, the God of abundance. God wants us to know Him as El Shaddai, as well. He does not want to be known as a God of lack or grudge, but as a God of abundance. He is the One who truly wants, and is able, to help us in every situation and who, in abundant measure, can meet all our material needs.
