On Keeping Faith's Focus...

 Here it is, unveiling the skyline; a new day of grace!
 ...soon it will sink, a wink of pink on the westward brink... 
...into Past's vast embrace

The wily one with many charms
Our wish and whim regales
Wise then to lean on loving arms
Of He who never fails

God's faithful Word no one should doubt
But beg His Spirit prove
That which no one can thrive without
Life’s greatest merit; love

The wars we fight twixt right and wrong
Would be a losing chase
Without the One who makes us strong

Humility, ah, who can boast
This attitude of Christ
Save as we yield our utter most
To He who loved us first

With heart and soul and strength and mind
We ought to love the Lord
For who knows when time’s mist and wind
Will usher in Reward

Gorgeous beginning to a whole new week...
Pray the Lord to guide and keep!

 So we aspire to please Him, whether we are here in this body or away from it.
Therefore, since we know what it means to fear the Lord, we try to persuade men. 
What we are is clear to God, and I hope it is clear to your conscience as well.
2 Cor.5:9-11

We were challenged in yesterday morning's message to have the same attitude as Christ-

"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, 
and was made in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, 
and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Phil. 2:5-11 KJV

Pride and humility will both suffer but one suffers for self, the other for others/God.
