Several of us boys were enrolled in Royal Ambassadors
program in our church.
Often, our counselors took us on little trips to have fun.
We were in a small river swimming and having fun.
There was a rope tied to a bridge above the river.
We would take the rope and climb up the bridge struts
and swing out over the river and jump.
My dad was one of the counselors.
He said, "Swing out, turn over and dive into the river."
I tried it, but didn't quite get all the way over.
Hitting the water was PAINFUL!
Dad said, "Try it again."
I said, "No, Sir. That HURTS!"
Then, I learned a valuable lesson.
Dad said, "Son, you must make the
conquest of faith over pain!"
For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death,
we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
LIGHT from the WORD.
When we surrender our lives to Christ, He transforms us and gives
life new meaning.
Our “new creature” is filled with the Spirit of the Living God!
He is the power by which Jesus was raised from the dead!
And, we are given the "resurrection" from deadness
of sin to a NEW LIFE!
ALL of us fail and bring pain to ourselves because of
ALL of us suffer from the pain brought by OTHERS' sin.
But, praise God, He gives us FAITH!
By this faith, we know that we have an “Advocate”
with God through Jesus (See 1John 2:1)
. By this faith, we “...are KEPT by the power of God
hrough faith unto salvation...” (See 1Pet. 1:5)
When the “swing” of life brings you sadness and pain,
get back ON!
Live in the conquest of faith!
