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:
Well.. this is what i was thinking yesterday. The phrase, “put God first.” that seems so right doesn’t it? put God first in front of everything, just seems SO right. so good.
Well, that’s not the commandment. God doesn’t want us to put him first, and then other gods or people second. he doesn’t want us to receive the holy Ghost, and then go get water baptized, or go consult a minister about it. He said, “NO other gods before me.” So, the commandment isn’t “put God first” - that’s sin. The commandment is “God only!” Jesus is the first and the last, alpha and omega. Well, that means there is no second or third in between. What did he do, jump over beta and gamma and delta? ha ha. but some of that i just thought of brand new, so i thought i would share. i like it!
Haha the part about skipping the other Greek letters in the alphabet. . . Jesus isn’t only alpha and omega, he is all the letters in between! Oh, Lord, please help us simple minded humans. . . Jesus is ALPHA, beta, gamma, delta, epilison, zeta, eta, theta, iota, kappa, lambda, mu, nu, zi, omicron, pi, rho, sigma, tau, upsilion, psi, chi and OMEGA . . . that’s what he meant . . . he’s everything from the beginning to the end!
