Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.
Select a thought to read by choosing a collection, the month, and then the day:
From a testimony by Uncle Joe, early 1960s.
“Your testings make you bitter or better.”
I liked what you said about tests.
The Lord said something good to me this afternoon: “It’s just pride that makes someone think they can pick their tests (or get out of them).”
We wouldn’t even know how.
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
God picks the test, and only He can make the way of escape. That felt so good to me. I was out of the picture.
