Misc. thoughts

Numbers 24:13
'...I must say only what the LORD says'

While in His majestic justice God could have simply struck all sinners dead from His throne above, He came down to us in order to gently find us and save us:

Genesis 3:8-9
'And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, "Where are you?"'

Luke 19:10
'For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.'

The Christian's life should be one of victory. Of course, there are ups and downs, but the final result of this struggle in life for the true Christian will be victory - a return from the battlefield to our home. (Rev 1-2) As one preacher put it, Jesus doesn't loose a single one of the soldiers in his army.

With those thoughts, I'm logging off and turning in early. My eyes are hurting and need to rest a while. Best wishes, everybody!
