January 26, 2020: Out of the Overflow of the Heart, the Mouth Speaks...
“Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them." Mark 7:14-15 (NIV)
Sometimes when people think badly of me, it is deserved since I am a sinner saved by God’s grace. Other times, it’s not deserved. In fact, sometimes people might think badly of me when I do what is right.
I guess that is the startling thing when I truly begin to grasp the Gospel. It is undeserved and unmerited. God became man. Jesus lived a sinless life and died a horrific death for someone like me. Like you.

Supplication is the golden key that opens the door of mercy. It is “the slender nerve that moves the muscles of Omnipotence.”
“The prayer of thanksgiving will subsist in heaven when in the very nature of things all other forms of prayer will have ceased.”
