Here & There (March 25)

03-13-Sibbes

Impatience and the Abdication of My Throne  – “In my head, I know I will need to repent and trust Christ every day in this life, and I will not be perfected until I am glorified; until then, I must persevere in sanctification (1 John 3:1-3).  Still, I live sometimes as if I am surprised I sin and still need the cross and the LORD’s grace.  Do I want to be like Jesus, or do I want to hold onto my fig leaves? Every day, I must ask and answer this question.”

Too Much Skin, Girl  – “The clothes you wear reveal what is in your heart.  It is not right for a man to place all the blame on a woman.It is just as wrong for a woman to make this exclusively a man’s problem.”

The Grace in Going to Church  – “We desperately need the weekly reminder that people need us to serve them and that we need God’s people to serve us.”

Come and Die  – “Have you ever seen a military recruitment poster or TV ad that showed wounded soldiers? Ever seen one that showed soldiers taking bullets, medics administering morphine to blood-gushing comrades, or an array of battle-hardened quadriplegics?”

When She Lashes Out at You  – “Hurt people…hurt people.”

It Is Not Death To Die  

VERSE 1
It is not death to die
To leave this weary road
And join the saints who dwell on high
Who’ve found their home with God
It is not death to close
The eyes long dimmed by tears
And wake in joy before Your throne
Delivered from our fears

CHORUS
O Jesus, conquering the grave
Your precious blood has power to save
Those who trust in You
Will in Your mercy find
That it is not death to die

VERSE 2
It is not death to fling
Aside this earthly dust
And rise with strong and noble wing
To live among the just
It is not death to hear
The key unlock the door
That sets us free from mortal years
To praise You evermore
