FOUNDATIONS

‘For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, not powers, not height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.’ Romans 8:38-39

SUNDAY VERSES

 
We cannot say that Jesus was either simply a good man or a prophet. Jesus himself claimed his rightful status as God, and this was the reason he was crucified…
 
So the Jews said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?” Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.” So they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.  From John 8:57-59
 
“The Father and I are one.” The Jews took up stones again to stone Him.  from John 10:30
 
They tried to stone Him because with those words ‘I Am’ He was clearly claiming to be God.So we can reject Him or accept Him, but we cannot ignore Him. For all of us He carried the cross…

LUKE’S GOSPEL

Jesus said to them, ‘Take care!  Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one’s life doesn’t consist in the abundance of possessions.’…

‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear, for life is more than food and the body more than clothing’…

‘For it is the nations of the world that strive after all these things, and your Father knows that you need them.  Instead strive for His kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well’.
