(Wed.) Time for the beat down....

“The beatings will continue until morale improves.” Anonymous

I know, I know…”But BrotherBoog, I don’t deserve a beat down. I’m a Christian...” Well you know what? You are absolutely…. - Passage Lookup: Genisis 6:11-13, 17

Right, sort of. We all deserved the eternal beat down of hell and punishment, but, like we talked about last week, Jesus took that curse for us and from us. In the passage above God is preparing to pour out his wrath on all sin in the world, and like we talked about yesterday, the world was full of it.

Pray & thank Jesus Christ for taking our beat down on the cross.

Sin is only out to destroy us & God is out to destroy sin. He did it on the cross and he can do it through you if you just trust him.

Tell someone your story about Jesus today.

(Tues.) Good Cop, Bad Cops & Robbers...

This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. – Jesus Christ as quoted in The Book of John

Genisis 6:5-10

Men were only thinking evil all the time! Can you believe that?! Who would do such a thing? Certainly not me & you…or would we? How often do we think about Jesus? We are supposed to live our whole day focused on & pleasing him. He is Lord.
Pray and admit to God how much you really focus on him & ask Jesus to destroy the power of evil in our lives and schools and families and friends.

Thank goodness there’s more to God than anger and punishment. Noah found grace with God…and so do we. Grace is getting what you don’t deserve and not getting what you deserve. Noah lived in this evil world but he was allowed to walk with God and even have his whole family saved from the coming flood.
Ask God for his mercy and grace to empower you to walk with him today and ask for his patience with your friends who ignore him so that you can show them how much he loves them.
