Passion in Christ

I really need to memorize 2 Corinthians 6:8-13 so I can use it as armor when Satan and others (including myself) are trying to bring me down. Anyone want to join me? Even when I am not going through a major hardship, these verses can speak volumes to me. Lord, help me to not to complain or dwell in sorrow...."take heart, I have overcome the world." Please show my family where you'd have us go as we seek to know you and make you known. Encourage us and use us to encourage others. Help us to see you in every situation and to rejoice even when we are sorrowful, uncertain, and confused. Thank you for loving us!

Boldness in Christ

Galatians 2:11-"When Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong." (read the surrounding verses) That's bold. Not just anyone could do wouldn't mean the same coming from someone that wasn't a believer acting in obedience to Christ---or someone who was just griping because of their own personal opinion! I think we all need a Paul in our lives...someone who is bold for Christ, can point out our strengths and weaknesses in Christ, and who in love and out of devotion to Christ, can correct us when we are in the wrong.Correction isn't always easy to take or fun either----but it is oh so priceless!
