6-Apr-12: 1 Peter 4:1-8

 

Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same intention (for whoever has suffered in the flesh has finished with sin), 2 so as to live for the rest of your earthly life no longer by human desires but by the will of God. 3 You have already spent enough time in doing what the Gentiles like to do, living in licentiousness, passions, drunkenness, revels, carousing, and lawless idolatry. 4 They are surprised that you no longer join them in the same excesses of dissipation, and so they blaspheme. 5 But they will have to give an accounting to him who stands ready to judge the living and the dead. 6 For this is the reason the gospel was proclaimed even to the dead, so that, though they had been judged in the flesh as everyone is judged, they might live in the spirit as God does.

 

7 The end of all things is near; therefore be serious and discipline yourselves for the sake of your prayers. 8 Above all, maintain constant love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“……and you say we must love each other ALL THE TIME?”

 

 

 

Now in comfort, now in humming quiet, all friends marched on.

Now in safety, now in unity, now moved past all breakers.

So critters and unfolk trod on the upward path, neath wings of Son.

So all eyes, all ears, all hearts pointed ever past all rocks,all fakers.

 

 

“So weuns go fastees, weuns holds fastees, weuns scold nasties!”

“No, no, ye scrumbling bumbling tumblies, “cried down Old Crow.

“No, no, ye hardy, tardy questers all! “buzzed Bluesy Dragonflysies.

“Ye must EVERMORE, EVERMORE love, love, love ALL as Bro’!”

 

“……and you say THE ONE never gets stained but walks right here?”

23-Mar-12: Hebrews 4:14—5:4

14 Since, then, we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession.

15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin.

16 Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“……and you say THE ONE never gets stained but walks right here?”

 

 

So did friends, all critters and unfolk alike, climb on and up.

So did all ears and Crookeye and BushNose and clutching hands seek again.

“Heighty-ho, sleightly-mo, on and on we go in dust and bramble to sup.”

“Mighty-wo, fighty-no, on and on we go in root stain and clump drain to strain.”

 

So did all friends march on under wing of Old Crow and Ugly Bird and Fly.

So did all friends tire and rest and mire and best all bars against their quest.

“Look ye, see ye, there is One all shining and clean pushing you bye and bye”

“What mean ye, Old Caw?” None stays clean here!””Oh , Yes, THE ONE does it best!”
