THE CHRISTIAN THREAD

Post by ChildOfGod » Mon Mar 19, 2012 2:46 pm

A thread of open Christian brotherly affection; keeping all posts positive and in The LORD; providing a daily salting of all-walks applicable words of encouragement from God's Word from any and all.

The only hard and fast rule is that all content be entirely agreeable with all distinctives; that no content be disagreeable to anyone from a particular distinctive.

There's an entire forum of many threads for discussing differences.

This is one thread for unifying similarities.

In Romans 8:28, Paul wrote:And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
...so not only our victories but even our unintended failures can be used by God to ultimately make us victorious; to mold us or conform us into the likeness of His Son through the power of His Holy Spirit.

Christ didn’t come to polish our chains of sin; he came to break them.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.

May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace

John 14:16-17

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.

1 John 3


1 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

3 All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.

Romans 3


21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— 26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.

2 Cor 5:21 He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Jude
24 Now to Him who is able to protect you from stumbling and to make you stand in the presence of His glory, blameless and with great joy, 25 to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, power, and authority before all time, now and forever. Amen.

Ephesians 3

I pray that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power in the inner man through His Spirit, 17 and that the Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, 19 and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

If you get to talk about God's wrath in relation to the cross, does that mean I can post prayers to the Theotokos? :lol: Serious question though.
