This week was a simple exhortation from Galatians 4 to make our call and election certain. It is time for Christianity to grow up become rooted and built as Paul taught in the book of Colossians. We should not think too highly of ourselves, rather by humbling ourselves God can reveal all we need.
To see the level of our faith, we should ask ourselves simple questions:
In my speech; do I magnify God and His supernatural power?
or do I often give in to the pressure of the world to submit to circumstances and natural issues?
When Christ is formed in you, you will believe the Word of God over your circumstances.

This week we looked at the works of the law, that is the customary law compared to the moral law.
Has sin changed? No, not at all, but the works of the law speak of our method of atonement, the old covenant required priests and the killing of bulls and goats while the new covenant Jesus fulfilled all these things.

It has been a week and I have been places without internet for the most part. So thank you for your patience, I intend to get caught up soon.
This week we continued to look at Lamentations. We spoke of the value of righteous judgment. If you run from conviction you will continue to run, while God is not obliged to continue chasing you. The damage done along the way will not be easily repaired.
