Over the last few weeks I have been working through the
'marriage and singleness' chapter in 1 Corinthians 7
- Don't get married.....
unless you can't control your passions.....
- Husbands and wives give your bodies to each other.....
- Don't get divorced...
even if your husband is a not a believer....
So what about when the relationship goes terribly wrong....?
Isn't it better to just bail and start over.....?
A solution that our culture seems to be using more and more
God's word tells me there is another way....
This morning I was reading 2 Corinthians chapter 4
About the Glory that resides in me
That shines out through the cracks of my stressful
that clinging to the power of Jesus
...to save me from my self-saving 'requirement'
...my built in self-preservation (at all costs) bent
'I who am alive,
am being given over to (self) death
for Jesus sake,
so that His life may be revealed in my
decaying body.' ref 2Cor 4:11
Such a conflict of terms
...don't really live.
So hard (on my flesh)
So easy (when I do it)
I choose to
Stop struggling to
And let You
Live in me.
