Singles ministry daily reading, Romans 9:33
Paul spends a lot of time here, laying out why Gentiles receive mercy and why some Jews do not. At the end, he says that the Gentiles obtain righteousness by faith and the Jews have not, "Because they pursued it not by faith but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone." It is so easy to get caught up in pursuing righteousness by works, it feels natural to my human instinct. Do right and you are righteous. But Jesus is the stumbling block because righteousness by faith is hard to connect with and understand.
Jesus' death, burial and resurrection has made me righteous. I want to do right so that I can be like him, and because he paid such a high price role my righteousness!

Jeremiah 29:11 is one of my favorite bible verses. I always keep it where I can see it. It reminds me that what I'm going through now is temporary. It gives me hope that I will be able to surpass all of this and that I will become a doctor.
Read your Bibles everyday! ♡ If you're not grounded in truth then what are grounded in, a lie? How can you tell good from evil? (I hope you care about telling truth from evil) By reading the Bible. How can you fight the enemy? Yup, by reading the Bible. Otherwise, you are either loosing or you are no threat to him. Take up the power of God's word in your life. Bring life to those who need it. Read your Bibles! ♡ #bible#jesus#jesuslovesyou#god#love
Quem somos nós, frente a grandeza de Deus? // Who are we in front of greatness of God? "When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?"
Psalms 8:3-4 KJV
Sometimes when situations happen we jump to fix it. Typical human reaction right? Sometimes we feel like it's our duty to rectify or bring justice to what happened. Makes sense since you were wronged right? However, when we feel the most we should look to Jesus the most. Emotions are like waves and can cause more damage than what we expected. Joseph, when wronged, took a step back and let God be God. He had every right to be mad, but trusted the father over his feelings. He cares about what's going on in your life. Like Joseph, trust God with your situation, trust that his word is true and that he loves you enough to not leave you where you are. He's already at your door, invite him in.
Read: Genesis 50:20
This generation is one that loves to look around and compare. In the words of "Sweet Brown" -- ain't nobody got time for that. We are too busy looking around to focus on the work GOD gave us too do. Meanwhile while your jealous and bitter, someone else is going after their calling. Eat your portion.

EXAMINE YOURSELVES TO SEE WHETHER YOU ARE IN THE FAITH; test yourselves.
Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test? .

Mengapa Gereja Katolik berpusat di Roma?
Pada dasarnya, Keuskupan Roma bukanlah satu-satunya Keuskupan yang didirikan St. Petrus, masih ada Keuskupan Anthiokia yang sudah lebih dahulu didirikannya. Lalu, mengapa Roma dijadikan pusat dari Gereja Katolik?
Setelah hari Pentakosta, Santo Petrus yang menjadi pemimpin dari para rasul, memulai tugas dan perutusannya dengan membaptis banyak orang dan mendirikan Gereja di Keuskupan Anthiokia. .
Namun, ia tidak menetap di Anthiokia. Ia kemudian menuju ke Roma, yang saat itu dipandang sebagai ibukota dunia, dan membaptis serta mendirikan Gereja di sana. .
Maka saat ini, Keuskupan Roma diakui sebagai pusat Gereja Katolik, semata-mata karena St. Petrus, sang pemimpin para rasul, mendirikan, memimpin, dan menetap di sana hingga wafatnya sebagai martir.
Dan oleh karena itu, penerus-penerus takhta Petrus yang kita kenal sebagai paus, juga memimpin dan menetap di Keuskupan Roma.
