A Call to Radical Kindness - Do Not Lose Heart - Friday, February 24th

Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves. But beware of men, for they will hand you over to the courts and scourge you in their synagogues; and you will even be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. But when they hand you over, do not worry about how or what you are to say; for it will be given you in that hour what you are to say. For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you …. Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops. Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows. Matthew 10:16-20, 26-31

This is a plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering. For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power. 2 Thessalonians 1:5-9

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

When we are caught up in serving God’s kingdom we will routinely live by the code Jesus gave us of not resisting (fighting against) evil. As kingdom members we learn to play our “Reverse” cards in the following ways: (1) we prayerfully entrust the work of justice to God instead of taking matters into our own hands; (2) we resolve not to hate but to extend love and kindness instead: (3) and we do not live in fear but rather we confidently go on playing our “Reverse” cards in the knowledge that life lived this way will be the very means God uses to reach some who otherwise would be subject to God’s final justice and eternal retribution for unbelief. This is the ultimate triumph over evil.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, I trust you for triumph over evil in my own life, triumph over my wrong reactions to evil in the lives of others, and triumph over all evil in the end. May I truly desire redemption for all and retribution for none. May your love, kindness, and kingdom prevail. Amen!

I am really loving the theme/design of your site.
Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?

A few of my blog readers have complained about my site not
operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.

Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?
