Genesis 150x150

Sin crouching at the door

In Genesis 4 we see the tension between the need for God to punish sin and the correct response to sin when it is at our door. In the same way we would avoid a hungry lion.
The need for God Him self to stem the tide of our sin we do and how God can fix both?
By sending Jesus to stop the cycle of sin in it’s tracks and to start reversing the damage in our lives through His love.

Tough love and the responsibly that comes from knowing the truth

Paul wraps up his letter to the Corinthians with a warning about his next visit.
He addresses church discipline as a topic for their own good and inculcates that, while he has been timid and meek so far, when he visits again he will takes a hard line against those in the church who are still indulging in their sin with the privilege of knowing the truth comes the responsibility of living in accordance with it.

A Christian’s Credentials

In this passage, Paul is emphasizing that, while his readers may see the boasting and outward wealth of the false prophets as signs of genuine faith, all the trials and challenges he has faced is actually a more accurate sign that he is a true follower of Christ. Jesus builds our faith through challenges and obstacles, so that we grow stronger in the faith. Believing in Christ takes perseverance and faith, as we run this marathon and finish the race in Christ. Hardship and trials are a good indication that we are true believers and are a better point of reference than the “earthly blessings” promoted by prosperity teachers.
