Which Ride?

Let’s say you’re at an amusement park …

You have your choice between two rides:

  • The first features 1 second of awesomeness followed by 999,999,999 gazillion years of pain.
  • The second offers 1 second of pain followed by 999,999,999 gazillion years of awesomeness.

Which would you choose?

Aliens

It’s ETERNITY WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’re lifting our eyes and looking at things from God’s perspective.

Here’s today’s mind-altering verse …

Dear friends, I urge you as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. (1 Peter 2:11)

Aliens? Think about it. We believe that:

Help!

It’s ETERNITY WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’re lifting our eyes and looking at things from God’s perspective.

My most frequent prayer consists of one word:

HELP!

That one little word captures the basic human condition in a nutshell. The Beatles put it this way:

He’s Known You Awhile

It’s ETERNITY WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’re lifting our eyes and taking a look at things from God’s perspective.

Today’s verse:

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. (Jeremiah 1:5)

Here’s a rather mind-bending fact: God’s known you longer than you’ve known yourself.

Mist

It’s ETERNITY WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’re lifting our eyes and looking at things from God’s perspective.

Here are today’s mind-altering selections:

Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. (James 4:14)

Be very careful, then, how you live — not as unwise, but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. (Ephesians 5:15-16)

Look Up

It’s ETERNITY WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’ll be lifting our eyes and looking at things from God’s perspective.

Here’s today’s mind-altering selection:

Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)

Jesus on Salvation, Part 2

gripWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re taking a look at what Jesus said about a variety of absolutely critical, life-altering subjects in his own words with a minimum of commentary from me.

Today’s topic: Part 2 of JESUS ON SALVATION. Yesterday we looked at selection of verses from John’s Gospel. Today we’ll look at what the rest of the Gospels say.
