some Tera thoughts :)

Thank God for Jesus who was the ultimate sacrifice and offering (as the bros mentioned in previous posts) and we do not have to follow the provisions we have been reading about... "but now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code." Rom 7:6

There were a lot of "dry" details today, and in Leviticus overall. I typically glance over the details (and hope that one day when I am older I will study them out, make correlations with the NT, etc. hehe), and I usually read another part of the bible or another book so that I could have something spiritual to chew on for the day. I wanted to share something I read today that I found intriguing :)...

"The facts of Satan need to be faced. His power is breathtaking. He can take the brightest mind and the most cheerful heart and fill them with thoughts of perversion and violence. He can turn faith into a pack of lies and nonsense. He can twist Scripture or make its words swim meaninglessly before the eyes. One touch from him, and the stoutest believer will barely be be able to whisper a prayer."

Thank goodness for God who is more powerful than Satan "...the very majesty of His sovereign power, which by a mere word created the universe, and which by a mere word will at the end of time cast the Devil and all his demons into the lake of fire."

I love the goal of Chrono; that we don't allow ourselves to be food for Satan but rather, we find a way to stay connected to God, His word, and each other. Thanks for connecting with me through His word!

Love ya :)

P.S. The OC Feb breakfast is Saturday Feb 28th, yaay! Hope to cya there. And a SHOUT OUT to BRIAN MASHANEY, our fellow Chrono participant who's fighting the war in the middle east :)
