Here is a repost of a post I wrote on Familiarity Breeds Contempt–we all fall into it’s deadly trap.
“Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow in his steps… who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness” (1 Peter 2:21-24). The crucifixion was a great object lesson of submission, gentleness, meekness and self surrender. “He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth” (Isaiah 53:7). Christ’s death is much more than this; but let us not forget this also amid the suffering and trial through which we follow Him.”– A.B.Simpson. From the Cross of Christ.
Here is a article from World Net Daily on NBC trashes pro-life ad featuring Obama you also can watch the video from this site.
“Man’s chief end,” says the Shorter Catechism, magnificently,”is to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever.” End, note, not ends; for the two activities are one. God’s chief end, purposed in all that he does, is his glory (and what higher end could he have?), and he has so made us that we find our own deepest fulfillment and highest joy in hallowing his name by praise, submission, and service. God is no sadist, and the principle of our creation is that, believe it or not (and or course many don?t, just as Satan doesn’t), our duty, interest and delight completely coincide. Christians get so hung up with the pagan idea (very dishonoring to God, incidentally) that God’s will is always unpleasant, so that one is rather a martyr to be doing it, that they hardly at first notice how their experience verifies the truth that in Christian living duty and delight go together. But they do!-and it will be even clearer in the life to come. To give oneself to hallowing God’s name as one’s life-task means that living, though never a joy ride, will become increasingly a joy road. Can you believe that? Well, the proof of the pudding is in the eating! Try it, and you will see.” Psalm 148:1-14 —J.I.Packer From Growing in Christ.
