This week’s thought…

I would imagine there are exceptions, but not many people plan to be heretics.  They don’t start out wanting to believe things that undermine the gospel.  They didn’t start out hoping that they would be an enemy of the gospel of Jesus.  Yet, Paul declares that there were people that he weeps over who were that way.  Their god had become their stomach, and their glory was their shame.  What was his antidote for such a state?…  for more, click here

Our devotional highlight for this week is from Max Lucado:

The Lord Heals All Diseases – even diseases we might not call as such!

The psalmist says, “The Lord heals all your diseases” (Psalm 103:2-3 NIV). Do you think among those diseases might be the affliction of anger? God can help you get rid of your anger. Do you want him to? This isn’t a trick question. You may be addicted to anger. You may be a rage junkie. Anger may be part of your identity. But if you want him to, God can change your identity.

Do you have a better option? Like moving to a rejection-free zone? If so, enjoy your life on the deserted island. When others reject you, let God accept you. Leave your anger at the tree of Calvary. He is not frowning. He is not mad. He sings over you. Take a long drink from his limitless love, and cool down!
