What's The Truth

We can spend years building trust and growing deeper into our relationships only for a moment to occur that can begin to slowly destroy the time invested. When that happens, rebuilding broken trust takes time and the intentional pursuit of restoration. In this episode, I'm talking about what happens when trust is broken, how to rebuild trust with that person by taking Biblical action, and how to learn to trust again. I know repairing broken trust is not easy, but time will help begin to rebuild what was broken. However, it will still take intentional steps to rebuild trust. The depth we experience healing is the depth we turn to the Lord and walk out His love for us.  Rooting for you, Jessica Connect with me -> www.jessicahottle.com Free Stuff: Join my Facebook Community to learn how to heal emotionally and hear from God >> https://www.facebook.com/groups/2090810004481127/ Are you ready to live by faith and not by how you feel?

We found ourselves this evening entering more deeply into the nature of the spiritual struggle and warfare and the effects that it has upon us and others. We do not exist in isolation and there is no passive position in the spiritual life or our relationship with God. We either struggle with the passions or they gradually direct our life. We either struggle with God and those he has given to support us and to be our allies in the battle or we begin to war with the tyrant. Our willingness to enter into the struggle with temptation, to fearlessly endure the trials that we undergo in life begins to reveal more and more to the soul. We begin to be able to distinguish between virtue and vice with a greater clarity. We also acquire virtue by this warfare and toil and so begin to see that we are more steadfast when embattled. Though stronger, however, we also learn that we must remain humble and hate vice so as to avoid it. Finally, we see our frailty in all of its fullness and the love and the power of God. The very battle itself reveals so much about ourselves and the hidden regions of the unconscious; that have been wounded by our sin or from having lived in a fallen world. Yet, it also reveals to us the very desire of God. God longs and yearns for our love. He thirsts for it. Such things are not learned from books but rather through the experience of the Paschal mystery. It is through dying to sin and self and rising to life in Christ that we come to know Him and to understand the nature of divine love.   ---   Text of chat during the group:    00:38:39 Eric Ewanco: this paragraph really resonates with my recent experience!!   00:52:17 Anthony: Pope Benedict wrote about a non-sinful understanding of Eros.   00:52:45 Anthony: Spe Salvi?   00:54:04 Rachel: Can one experience these temptations so keenly that they feel as if they are actually doing violence to themselves? Especially when it come to thoughts. Where one does not wish to sin in the thoughts let alone sins of action. Do the demons and our wounds from past sins attack us even greater and rebel when we have set our hearts on God and his will alone? I know someone who described the fight as almost maddening because they had been so steeped in sin that the battle would even feel physically and mentally wounding. it reminds me of when Saint may of Egypt told Abba Zosimas that there were some days she would spend face down on the ground until they passed. Calling on the name of Jese.   00:54:11 Rachel: Jesus.   00:54:15 Eric Ewanco: I don't see "eros" occur in Spe Salvi   00:55:50 Ashley Kaschl: I think it might be in Deus Caritas Est   00:56:32 Eric Ewanco: probably; I see 34 hits for eros there   01:00:14 Anthony: For what it's worth, sometimes, I almost feel that the devils even wish to snatch away prayer or take over consciousness to direct my attention away from God and to them.   01:01:10 Eric Ewanco: oh yeah; definitely, @anthony   01:01:40 Anthony: On the timelessness of the unconscious, "Iconostasis" by Fr. Pavel Florensky opens with this theme.   01:03:57 Rachel: Yes! This is precisely what I hoped you would touch upon.   01:06:48 Rachel: Where it would seem to bring a person the the edge of sanity but that is precisly where all of our ideas that we had of ourselves and of God are brought into the light. Where one become disillusioned with oneself and realizes that they have been brought to the threshold of the bridal chamber. Where there are no illusions and one stands as they are, in God. Where on e allows themselves to be loved as they have always been.   01:08:32 Ashley Kaschl: Took me a little longer to type this out but I wanted to bounce off of Anthony's comment on eros, I was recently talking to some friends about Pope Benedict's clarifying of what God's love looks like. Pope B says something like “on the Cross, God's eros is made present for us.” Because His love is both agape and eros. Agape because it is selfless, self-gift, unconditional, sacrificial, etc. AND eros because God yearns for His people in the same way that eros burns passionately for the beloved. Eros moves the lover to become one with the beloved, ie, Christ and His church and through the Eucharist. So on the Cross, God begs the love of His people. Prayer is our act of eros back to God, where our own yearning for Him is most present within us as we call out to Him from our innermost being. So prayer is also the biggest target of the enemy because he knows that if he can destroy our connection to God, he greatly frustrate our passionate desire for Him.   01:13:43 Babington (or Babi): Thank you!

All who trust God in His gospel of promise are guaranteed glory in Christ through the Holy Spirit. This is Paul's main point at the beginning of Romans 5. It speaks thoroughly of New Covenant hope. It also unmistakably extols the triunity of God and emphasizes that “salvation belongs to the LORD” (Jonah 2:9). As the saved sinner's only boast is in God, so his final certainty of future glory rests in God, whom he trusts. This section begins by celebrating the consequences of justification and exulting in God as the one who guarantees our future glory.

Christ's Death Ushers In GraceBy Tammy Lacock“Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.” (John 12:24 KJV)In this week's podcast, Warren Litzman discerns what it means to step into the fullness of God's grace. In John 12:24, Jesus is telling us here that death is a prerequisite for bearing fruit. If He doesn't die, then God's work isn't finished, and there will be no fruit. He must give up His earthly ministry, His preaching of God's law, and His old self to step into the fullness of God's grace. That is God's ultimate plan for Him. God's grace is the fruit Jesus talks about here. Christ steps into this fullness when He proclaims in His last breath on the cross “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit. It is finished.” The same is true for us as believers. Our old selves, our old belief systems of who we think we are and what we must do to be saved, must die with Christ (Galatians 2:20) if we are ever to bear His fruit and step into the fullness of God's grace. That is His ultimate plan for us.Just as Jesus abolished the law at the cross, we too must die to any and every law that keeps us from fully living our new life in Christ, our new life in grace. This is the only way we can truly live in the fullness of God's grace. This is the only way we can truly live who God created us to be. Only then will we bear fruit, Christ's fruit. God no longer looks at our works, as He did by the law in the Old Testament. He NOW sees Christ as our new life in us. This is grace, ushered in by Christ's death on the cross. His death brings forth much fruit, that is, His resurrected life NOW in each and and every one of us who believes. We have eternal life in us NOW. The Apostle Paul, the Apostle of Grace, is the only one in the Bible raised up by Christ Himself to reveal to us that God's grace is NOW. He tells us how to live now that we are living in grace. He tells us that the law has been stripped of its power by Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. Moses ushered in God's law, and Christ ushered in God's grace, dissolving the law. His death opened the door for God to be a Father to each and every one of us. As believers, we are NOW His bona fide children, one body in Christ. Paul says taking our first step into grace means death to our old lives and, more specifically, our old minds if we are ever to bear fruit and live in the fullness of God's grace. He says, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:5 KJV). May we, once and for all, give our minds over to Christ now and step fully into God's grace!“For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:17 KJV)

#076 This is our fourth of eight episodes in our mini-series entitled, Paul's Treatises | Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians. On this episode we're going to overview the last ten chapters of the book of 1 Corinthians in which Paul answers questions of the Corinthians regarding difficulties they were having in their gatherings as a body.We need to remember this was all new stuff for believers gathering to worship the Lord. The church included Jews and Gentiles both coming from backgrounds ranging from temple to idol worship to agnosticism and atheism. Corinth was a cosmopolitan trade city filled with luxury and a culture seeped in the worldly trappings of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. To “Live as a Corinthian” meant to live in gross immorality reinforced and encouraged by prostitution practiced at pagan temples. Of course this was no different than cultures throughout the history of mankind where every man was allowed to do whatever was right in his own eyes.What Paul had been teaching in Corinth while he was with them and founding the church, and now reinforcing in this letter was counter cultural then and has remained so to this day. As we covered in our last episode on the opening six chapters, Paul was teaching believers how to live as people not of the world but in the world; surrounded by people living in a culture who were in the world and of the world. When Christ set us free from sin and condemnation, from the penalty of the law and death, and from Satan and his dominion what did he set us free to do? This is what Paul is addressing in this letter. Conflict in this freedom arises from two extreme sides. From the Gentile/pagan side comes the thought that given God's grace is unlimited we can now do what you want to satisfy the desires of our flesh without consequences from God as the grace of Jesus covers everything we do. Maybe not all-in to immersion, but at least up to our knees and waist in the squaller of pleasures. This thought has remained in the church to this day.From the Jewish side comes the thought of legalism and adherence to the law. When we were held in bondage to sin we were not capable of keeping the law. But now set free from sin we are obligated and capable of adherence to the law which will be the measure and standard for behavior within the church. This thought has also remained in the church to this day.Paul was letting the Corinthians know, and is letting us know today, that nothing has changed since the beginning. God who is holy, chose and redeemed us in Christ who were dead in our trespasses and sin, to be his sons and daughters and co-heirs with Christ in a coming kingdom. God is going to dwell with us into eternity on earth in a kingdom of God that will have no end. God through Jesus by the Holy Spirit has given us everything we need in this life to live a godly life. Yet when we first become believers, while we know something has happened and we've been changed, have lived no other life other than our formal life of sin and corruption. Paul is instructing the Corinthians and us today how to live our new life in Christ that is wholly antithetical to our former life when we were in and of the world.Even in 2022 we buck against Paul and God arguing we know a better way. Who was Paul anyway, telling the Corinthians and us what to do and how to live. Ancient culture and modern times are judex opposed. We've evolved morally and culturally to accept sex, drugs, and rock and roll and rebellion against the order God established for creation. We have the big bang theory, evolution, and humanism all of which the science and psychology academies accept and endorse. So we'll believe in Jesus, receive his grace, and do what we want no matter what Paul and God say.With all that as an introduction, let's get started.

What are you fearful of today? Did you know that we should be women of fear? The Proverbs 31 woman is described as a "woman who feared the Lord" and she was praised. This is the most important lesson we can learn from this ideal woman. Are you a woman who fears the Lord? If so, there are some specific things you will fear, and one of those is: The fear of getting off on some issue and losing the right focus One of the things that I fear greatly is getting out of balance and becoming an issue-oriented woman instead of a God-fearing woman. It would be very easy to do in this society with my personality, believe me. And I fear it, because I know that is one way Satan gets his foot in our doors. Many women in the last couple of generations have focused their lives and energies on righting all the wrongs done to women. To be sure there have been and still are discriminatory practices in our culture—including Christian institutions—which can be criticized, which should be changed, and which are not fair. And we may have some opportunities to try to effect some of those needed changes. That's fine in its proper place. But for us to become issue-oriented on women's rights so that the issue is more important to us than anything else is to be shoved into the world's mold of fighting for your rights. I keep reminding myself that the only way I can really help any woman is to point her to Jesus, who can free her from her sins and give her peace. Then she'll be free indeed. Paul wrote to the Romans that we are all slaves either of sin or of Christ. So instead of being in bondage to some issue, or becoming obsessive about fighting for our rights, I want to encourage women—and everyone else—to become slaves of righteousness, because when we die to ourselves we find life in Christ. I could help further the cause of women's rights 'til I'm blue in the face, and any progress made would be useless if the women are still slaves to sin. I want to fear not hearing the Lord say to me, "Well done, good and faithful servant," for I will stand before him someday for my life's work to be judged. I fear wasting the time and energy I have on things and issues that are not of eternal significance. That is godly fear.

Have you ever said to yourself, “Why can't I stop eating when stressed?” Learning how to stop stress eating isn't about getting food under control; it's about understanding that food cannot solve emotional hunger. Being able to stop stress eating God's way is not about applying scripture to cover up a wound, but rather allowing God to heal the wound. Healing happens when our hearts become aligned with His word and we begin to live from our relationship with Him. In this episode, I explain what stress eating is and why we struggle to stop it. I also offer three practical tips that will help you stop stress eating and lose weight God's way. Unfortunately, there is no quick fix, so don't be discouraged.

Church of the Nazarene - East Rock What We Believe What we believe: Prevenient Grace Over the next few weeks as a church we are going to explore what we believe, a few of the key doctrines and concepts of scripture, that shape our life individually as well as our life together as the Church. Together we want to get a clearer picture of the nature of our faith as the Church of the Nazarene, not just to gain knowledge, but to value the freedom and joy found in living out the way of Jesus of Nazareth. I welcome you to our new teaching series “What we believe”‭‭ Genesis‬ ‭3‬:‭1‬-‭3 ‬‬Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.' ” Just before this encounter, God had said they could eat from any tree in the garden, all the trees in the garden except one. God had warned Adam that if they ate from this one prohibited tree, they would die.‭‭ Genesis‬ ‭3‬:‭4‬-‭7‬‬ “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. When they disobeyed God, the truth is, they did die, just like God said. but it was not in the sense they expected. What died was their spiritual life, their connection with God, their sensitivity to Him. They became the original walking dead, and today we continue to live out that death. Dead to the things of God, insensitive to the things of the spirit, unable to resuscitate ourselves, unable to bring life back to our soul. As we look at What We Believe, we will see that God has made the first move. The beautiful truth of what we believe is that God has already made a way for us to have life, to know him, and he is calling you to life today.We believe in God's prevenient Grace. Prevenient grace takes on so many forms, coming through so many different avenues, but it all has one single purpose: To call you to Christ. To awaken you, to make it possible for you to go from death to life in Jesus. ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭1‬-‭3 ‬‬As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. The reality of being spiritually dead has with it some of the same implications that being physically dead might. When we are spiritually dead, our senses are not quickened to the things of the spirit. We do not discern right from wrong as we should We are not responding as we should to the things of God, or to the world. We were both deaf and dead to God, focused often on ourselves. And we are essentially doomed In our sin-dead state we are influenced by or own desires and spurred on by the ruler of the kingdom of the air, and that's the swindler from the Garden- satan himself. Paul doesn't mince words, he says in our dead state of sin, we are deserving of God's anger and judgment. It's a clear fact of God's Holiness, that sin will be judged. And that's where we all start, living in death. It would be a tragic and hopeless story if this were the end- it would be tragic if it were not for Prevenient Grace.‭‭ Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭4‬-‭5‬‬ But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. The point of prevenient grace is to make us alive with Christ, to be awaked from our spiritual death to new life in Christ through repentance and faith in him.- Our senses are quickened to things of the spirit.- Our discernment of right and wrong is quickened- We have a sense of a need to change- to do different. Perhaps even an awareness of our need for Christ. We believe that God extends this grace to everyone! He enables all who will to choose him. You know, there's another important thing about this Grace- We believe you must respond to it.The Article of Faith for Prevenient Grace says it this way: We also believe that the human race's creation in Godlikeness included the ability to choose between right and wrong, and that thus human beings were made morally responsible. The Lord doesn't want anyone to live spiritually dead. He is pouring out his prevenient grace on everyone, desiring that nobody miss out on life with him.But we have to choose. God has made the first move thousands of times, will you respond this time?

This effort comes from the heart of the Church's mission to bear and share the Body of Christ, caring for each member within the communion of his love. In practice, Fiat generates research, teaching, and formation opportunities to inform and strengthen sacramental and pastoral care that uplifts the dignity and goodness of each person. Fiat assists dioceses, parishes, and communities in fostering a culture of communion wherein the whole person is embraced and can experience the grace of Christian friendship and the sacramental life.The director of this bold and timely initiative is my guest today. Beth Hlabse is director of the Fiat program in the McGrath Institute for Church Life. With degrees in mental health counseling, theology, and peace studies, Beth has provided therapeutic care for adolescents and adults with histories of trauma and adverse child experiences. Her therapeutic approach is integrative, attending to neural-developmental influences and the intersection of spirituality and psychology. She brings not only her experience to the Fiat Program, but also a Catholic vision for the wholeness of the human person and an understanding of the interdisciplinary approaches necessary for developing the best mental health resources and forming Catholic leaders capable of nurturing mental health in the communities they serve.Follow-up Resources:Fiat Program on Faith and Mental Health“Integrating Faith and Mental Health, with Pat and Kenna Millea” on Church Life Today“Love to the Very End: A Theology of Dementia” in The Church Life Journal, by Xavier Symons“Profound Cognitive Impairment, the Virtues, and Life in Christ” in The Church Life Journal, by Miguel RomeroChurch Life Today is a partnership between the McGrath Institute for Church Life at the University of Notre Dame and OSV Podcasts from Our Sunday Visitor.

The spiritual life in Christ is a journey out of bondage and exile into a new life of freedom and flourishing. God has a promised land prepared for His people and He invites us to walk with Him as He leads us. The book of Exodus recounts the journey of God's people out of Egypt and toward the Promised Land. This rich narrative reveals the faithfulness of God to fight for His people and preserve them along the way. In this year-long study, we learn to leave Egypt behind and journey with God to life which is better. Exodus 34:1-4, 10-35 CC: Single-Mindedness

The friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom's voice. Therefore this joy of mine is now complete. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease.” 31 He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven is above all.32 He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony.33 Whoever receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true.34 For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure.35 The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand.36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.Sermon OutlineWe will consider what we must receive from God:1.

Assurance of Peace with God - Life in Christ

All who are justified by faith in Christ have assurance of peace with God. This is Paul's opening proclamation as he moves us into a new section. Paul has shown that all are corrupt and culpable (1:18–3:20), but that by faith in Christ a sinner can be set right with God (3:21–4:25). Now, in chapters 5 through 6, he expounds upon the glories of life in Christ. Justification by faith alone has definite consequences. This section begins by celebrating the consequences of justification and thereby exulting in the assurance of having peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 Saints and Blessings. This Sunday, we celebrate All Saints Sunday, giving thanks to God for all His saints – both those living as well as those who have passed away. The actual date of All Saints is November 1st, which was on Tuesday this year, but it is such a significant part of our lives as followers of Jesus as well as of the life of the Church.  This week, we take time to celebrate and observe this day filled with power and promise. You might start considering what it means to be a “saint” and also be thinking about the saints in your life, those faith-filled people who have passed on the faith in Jesus to you and who have helped shape and form your life in Christ.

Anxiety has increased so much recently that it's rare to find someone who says they're not managing at least a mild level of anxiousness. If you're a Christian, that anxiety may be compounded by the guilt you feel for your inability to "cast all your cares on Him." In this episode, I'm talking with author, podcast host, and certified NeuroCoach Alicia Michelle about what is happening in our bodies when we experience anxiety, how we can dig out the root of it, and the gift we have to use our God-given power to renew our thoughts.

Old Testament: Jeremiah 8–9 Jeremiah 8–9 (Listen) 8 “At that time, declares the LORD, the bones of the kings of Judah, the bones of its officials, the bones of the priests, the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be brought out of their tombs. 2 And they shall be spread before the sun and the moon and all the host of heaven, which they have loved and served, which they have gone after, and which they have sought and worshiped. And they shall not be gathered or buried. They shall be as dung on the surface of the ground. 3 Death shall be preferred to life by all the remnant that remains of this evil family in all the places where I have driven them, declares the LORD of hosts. Sin and Treachery 4   “You shall say to them, Thus says the LORD:  When men fall, do they not rise again?    If one turns away, does he not return?5   Why then has this people turned away    in perpetual backsliding?  They hold fast to deceit;    they refuse to return.6   I have paid attention and listened,    but they have not spoken rightly;  no man relents of his evil,    saying, ‘What have I done?'  Everyone turns to his own course,    like a horse plunging headlong into battle.7   Even the stork in the heavens    knows her times,  and the turtledove, swallow, and crane1    keep the time of their coming,  but my people know not    the rules2 of the LORD. 8   “How can you say, ‘We are wise,    and the law of the LORD is with us'?  But behold, the lying pen of the scribes    has made it into a lie.9   The wise men shall be put to shame;    they shall be dismayed and taken;  behold, they have rejected the word of the LORD,    so what wisdom is in them?10   Therefore I will give their wives to others    and their fields to conquerors,  because from the least to the greatest    everyone is greedy for unjust gain;  from prophet to priest,    everyone deals falsely.11   They have healed the wound of my people lightly,    saying, ‘Peace, peace,'    when there is no peace.12   Were they ashamed when they committed abomination?    No, they were not at all ashamed;    they did not know how to blush.  Therefore they shall fall among the fallen;    when I punish them, they shall be overthrown,      says the LORD.13   When I would gather them, declares the LORD,    there are no grapes on the vine,    nor figs on the fig tree;  even the leaves are withered,    and what I gave them has passed away from them.”3 14   Why do we sit still?  Gather together; let us go into the fortified cities    and perish there,  for the LORD our God has doomed us to perish    and has given us poisoned water to drink,    because we have sinned against the LORD.15   We looked for peace, but no good came;    for a time of healing, but behold, terror. 16   “The snorting of their horses is heard from Dan;    at the sound of the neighing of their stallions    the whole land quakes.  They come and devour the land and all that fills it,    the city and those who dwell in it.17   For behold, I am sending among you serpents,    adders that cannot be charmed,    and they shall bite you,”      declares the LORD. Jeremiah Grieves for His People 18   My joy is gone; grief is upon me;4    my heart is sick within me.19   Behold, the cry of the daughter of my people    from the length and breadth of the land:  “Is the LORD not in Zion?    Is her King not in her?”  “Why have they provoked me to anger with their carved images    and with their foreign idols?”20   “The harvest is past, the summer is ended,    and we are not saved.”21   For the wound of the daughter of my people is my heart wounded;    I mourn, and dismay has taken hold on me. 22   Is there no balm in Gilead?    Is there no physician there?  Why then has the health of the daughter of my people    not been restored?9   5 Oh that my head were waters,    and my eyes a fountain of tears,  that I might weep day and night    for the slain of the daughter of my people!2   6 Oh that I had in the desert    a travelers' lodging place,  that I might leave my people    and go away from them!  For they are all adulterers,    a company of treacherous men.3   They bend their tongue like a bow;    falsehood and not truth has grown strong7 in the land;  for they proceed from evil to evil,    and they do not know me, declares the LORD. 4   Let everyone beware of his neighbor,    and put no trust in any brother,  for every brother is a deceiver,    and every neighbor goes about as a slanderer.5   Everyone deceives his neighbor,    and no one speaks the truth;  they have taught their tongue to speak lies;    they weary themselves committing iniquity.6   Heaping oppression upon oppression, and deceit upon deceit,    they refuse to know me, declares the LORD. 7   Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts:  “Behold, I will refine them and test them,    for what else can I do, because of my people?8   Their tongue is a deadly arrow;    it speaks deceitfully;  with his mouth each speaks peace to his neighbor,    but in his heart he plans an ambush for him.9   Shall I not punish them for these things? declares the LORD,    and shall I not avenge myself    on a nation such as this? 10   “I will take up weeping and wailing for the mountains,    and a lamentation for the pastures of the wilderness,  because they are laid waste so that no one passes through,    and the lowing of cattle is not heard;  both the birds of the air and the beasts    have fled and are gone.11   I will make Jerusalem a heap of ruins,    a lair of jackals,  and I will make the cities of Judah a desolation,    without inhabitant.” 12 Who is the man so wise that he can understand this? To whom has the mouth of the LORD spoken, that he may declare it? Why is the land ruined and laid waste like a wilderness, so that no one passes through? 13 And the LORD says: “Because they have forsaken my law that I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice or walked in accord with it, 14 but have stubbornly followed their own hearts and have gone after the Baals, as their fathers taught them. 15 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold, I will feed this people with bitter food, and give them poisonous water to drink. 16 I will scatter them among the nations whom neither they nor their fathers have known, and I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them.” 17   Thus says the LORD of hosts:  “Consider, and call for the mourning women to come;    send for the skillful women to come;18   let them make haste and raise a wailing over us,    that our eyes may run down with tears    and our eyelids flow with water.19   For a sound of wailing is heard from Zion:    ‘How we are ruined!    We are utterly shamed,  because we have left the land,    because they have cast down our dwellings.'” 20   Hear, O women, the word of the LORD,    and let your ear receive the word of his mouth;  teach to your daughters a lament,    and each to her neighbor a dirge.21   For death has come up into our windows;    it has entered our palaces,  cutting off the children from the streets    and the young men from the squares.22   Speak: “Thus declares the LORD,  ‘The dead bodies of men shall fall    like dung upon the open field,  like sheaves after the reaper,    and none shall gather them.'” 23 Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, 24 but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.” 25 “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will punish all those who are circumcised merely in the flesh—26 Egypt, Judah, Edom, the sons of Ammon, Moab, and all who dwell in the desert who cut the corners of their hair, for all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in heart.” Footnotes [1] 8:7 The meaning of the Hebrew word is uncertain [2] 8:7 Or just decrees [3] 8:13 The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain [4] 8:18 Compare Septuagint; the meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain [5] 9:1 Ch 8:23 in Hebrew [6] 9:2 Ch 9:1 in Hebrew [7] 9:3 Septuagint; Hebrew and not for truth they have grown strong (ESV) Psalm: Psalm 106:1–23 Psalm 106:1–23 (Listen) Give Thanks to the Lord, for He Is Good 106   Praise the LORD!  Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,    for his steadfast love endures forever!2   Who can utter the mighty deeds of the LORD,    or declare all his praise?3   Blessed are they who observe justice,    who do righteousness at all times! 4   Remember me, O LORD, when you show favor to your people;    help me when you save them,15   that I may look upon the prosperity of your chosen ones,    that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation,    that I may glory with your inheritance. 6   Both we and our fathers have sinned;    we have committed iniquity; we have done wickedness.7   Our fathers, when they were in Egypt,    did not consider your wondrous works;  they did not remember the abundance of your steadfast love,    but rebelled by the sea, at the Red Sea.8   Yet he saved them for his name's sake,    that he might make known his mighty power.9   He rebuked the Red Sea, and it became dry,    and he led them through the deep as through a desert.10   So he saved them from the hand of the foe    and redeemed them from the power of the enemy.11   And the waters covered their adversaries;    not one of them was left.12   Then they believed his words;    they sang his praise. 13   But they soon forgot his works;    they did not wait for his counsel.14   But they had a wanton craving in the wilderness,    and put God to the test in the desert;15   he gave them what they asked,    but sent a wasting disease among them. 16   When men in the camp were jealous of Moses    and Aaron, the holy one of the LORD,17   the earth opened and swallowed up Dathan,    and covered the company of Abiram.18   Fire also broke out in their company;    the flame burned up the wicked. 19   They made a calf in Horeb    and worshiped a metal image.20   They exchanged the glory of God2    for the image of an ox that eats grass.21   They forgot God, their Savior,    who had done great things in Egypt,22   wondrous works in the land of Ham,    and awesome deeds by the Red Sea.23   Therefore he said he would destroy them—    had not Moses, his chosen one,  stood in the breach before him,    to turn away his wrath from destroying them. Footnotes [1] 106:4 Or Remember me, O Lord, with the favor you show to your people; help me with your salvation [2] 106:20 Hebrew exchanged their glory (ESV) New Testament: Romans 5–6 Romans 5–6 (Listen) Peace with God Through Faith 5 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we1 have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith2 into this grace in which we stand, and we3 rejoice4 in hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. 6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11 More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Death in Adam, Life in Christ 12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men5 because all sinned—13 for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. 14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many. 16 And the free gift is not like the result of that one man's sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification. 17 For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ. 18 Therefore, as one trespass6 led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness7 leads to justification and life for all men. 19 For as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous. 20 Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, 21&nb
