Faith-Full Friday Bucking the Call

18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit(1 Peter 3:18, English Standard Version). 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires (Galatians 5:24, ESV).

Faith-Full Friday A Lesson in Grace

5 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not put us to shame,…
