Philippians 4:1 // Part 3 // What Crown Will Christians Receive? thank you, John Piper

on repeat this week: In Christ Alone


[ Print’s FREE here: ]

You don’t have someone who merely stands up for you,
You have someone who laid down His life for you,
So He could stand up forever for you in heaven, always sticking up for you & staring down the lying prosecutor of your soul.

You can keep getting up,
because Jesus is sticking up for you.

You can keep going,
Because Jesus is staying with you & He’s not going anywhere.

You can hope,
Because Jesus is your help.

“The One who died for us…is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us & Christ’s love for us? Absolutely nothing can get between us & God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.”
Romans 8:34 MSG

[excerpted from our little Facebook family … come join us each day?]

Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
