Imagine a set of people all living in the same building. Half of them think it is a hotel, the other half think it is a prison.

05.24 Numbers 33 Psalms 78:1-39 Isaiah 25 1 John 3 “The whole Bible and all past history unite to teach that battles are always won before the armies take the field.

Israel wandered in the desert for nearly 40 years before they entered into the Promised Land. Most believers do the same. It is easy for God to take us out of Egypt. It is difficult for us to get the Egypt out of ourselves. It involves dying to self in order to live for God. “We are justified freely, by grace; meritoriously, by Christ; instrumentally, by faith; evidentially, by good works.” – William Marsh Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

Today’s Bible Verse & Christian Quote
Today’s Bible Verse:
Colossians 3:5-7; Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.
Today’s Christian Quote:
To gratify any sensual appetite is to give it the very food and nourishment by which it lives, thrives, and is active.” – Adam Clarke
