Life is more than just being

Quite contrary actually, depression sometimes is the person you would have never expected. Depression is doing everything you can to hide it. It creeps and lurks.

Life is more than just being

Used by permission of Zondervan Bible Publishers. Speaking as a Christian, I wonder sometimes if we understand all that is included in the Divine salvation. We have set as our primary goal preaching the Gospel to every person.

We have set as our secondary goal doing what good we can in the world to relieve human suffering. As scriptural and commendable as these goals certainly are and shall continue to be, they are not the first priority of the Divine salvation.

The first goal of the Divine salvation a goal scarcely mentioned nowadays is to draw from mankind a firstfruits to God, a royal priesthood who walk in iron righteousness, fiery holiness, and stern obedience to God.

The destiny of the firstfruits is be especially close to God. The existence of such makes everything else possible. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among men and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb.

We've all tried to make life work without God.

The destiny of the firstfruits is to be especially close to God. If this is not your calling, perhaps it will be easier for you to understand why some people seem to be so absorbed in the Lord they are not as conscious of the needs of the world as we might think appropriate and proper. It is the responsibility of each Christian church to hold forth the Word of life.

Also, it is the responsibility of those whose calling is evangelism to preach the Gospel to every creature. In addition, we all are to be zealous of good works, such as visiting orphans and widows in their poverty.

It is clear some believers are called in a special way to the task of assisting the needy. When we preach the Gospel to every creature, those who believe and are baptized shall be saved.

All of this we know and has the clear support of the Scriptures. But there is an aspect of salvation other than being spared in the Day of Wrath, other than doing the work of helping the needy of society.

I am referring to the call to be a member of the royal priesthood. While the New Testament, perhaps for practical reasons, does not make a clear distinction between being saved from wrath, and coming to the stature of the fullness of Christ, it is obvious there is a difference.

He who believes and is baptized shall be saved. He shall be saved from destruction in the Day of Wrath. Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. But then we find another aspect of salvation, an aspect not being emphasized today in proportion to its emphasis in the New Testament.

This neglected emphasis is the coming to maturity of the royal priesthood. It is one matter to be saved from wrath.Ironically, people on death row are provided much more comfortable single cells and sometimes gain celebrity and attention just by being there.

Death in prison is a sentence that saves money The death penalty is significantly more expensive than condemning a person to die in prison.

Rather, this is a plea to acknowledge that there’s more to life than money. We must assign appropriate value to the intangible areas of our lives, such as our honor, personal relationships, peace of mind, and quality family time, to name a few examples.

All I ask any more is what else were we to do with the kind of defiance shown, Should I have just let him do as he pleased and had the life he wanted watching the chaos he would create in its wake or did I do the right thing choosing his fathers and society's route, Its apparent the courts now back my husband, we have not completely stopped him.
