Without the holy Scriptures, we can have no saving relationship with the living and true God. We cannot have any true knowledge of God, knowledge of salvation, and knowledge of the world around us without the Scripture. We would be lost forever.
If you are not a Christian, I beseech you and command you to repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ that you may be saved. You are not doing him a favor, he is doing you one if you repent and believe. Your repentance is by grace, your prayer is by grace, your faith is by grace, and your salvation is by grace.
If you are saved, you will hear and do the will of God as you read the holy Scriptures. So we read, “From infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 3:15). How necessary are the Scriptures? Paul writes, “If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. . . . ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved’” (Rom. 10:9, 13). But then Paul asks, “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in?” This is reasoning by the apostle Paul in a series of questions. “And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent?” (Rom. 10:14–15). This demonstrates the necessity of the word. We must hear the word, believe the word, call upon the name of the Lord, and be saved. But where do we get the word? We do not have it unless God commissions and calls and sends a man who preaches it to us, and we hear and believe and are saved. That is the necessity of the word of God.
~ P.G. Mathew
Too often we feel like ordinary persons, spending our days completing routine actions and going through the motions. At Spot, we remind everyone that there is nothing ordinary about any of us!
Every single Spotter has the ability to make a change in this world. To make this world a better place.
Let’s make an impact together! Let’s make a positive change! Let’s go be extraordinary together!
every once in a while,
i catch a glimpse
of the me i used to be.
but i can never grasp
the face in the mirror
has turned from golden to grey.
those rose colored memories
have faded to black.
my being has been consumed
by his cold hands
Compassion and love starts with ourselves. As Women we can be SO hard on ourselves for not being perfect. The reality is that we will make mistakes, say things we wish we hadn’t, and feel regret at times. For today, consider being present and letting go thoughts around what we could have handled “better.” Apply this to a relationship, and there is no longer space for dramas or negativity.
