We are glad you are here; stay a while, look around, and be encouraged. We estimate there to be over 3,000 posts here at The White Stone. Please know my hope is ALWAYS to help and NEVER harm. I have voiced many opinions and thoughts here since 2007 by now I MAY NOT EVEN AGREE with all of it. BUT this is changeless: JESUS is our ONLY Savior and Hope. Do you KNOW Him?
Read over these words; especially the chorus: (do you remember singing it?)
It Will Be Worth It All 1. Sometimes the day seems long, Our trials hard to bear. We´re tempted to complain, to murmur and despair. But Christ will soon appear to catch his bride away! All tears forever over in God’s eternal day!
CHORUS: It will be worth it all when we see Jesus! Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ. One glimpse of his dear face, all sorrow will erase. So, bravely run the race till we see Christ.
2. At times the sky seems dark, with not a ray of light; We’re tossed and driven on, no human help in sight. But there is One in heaven, Who knows our deepest care; Let Jesus solve your problems, just go to him in prayer.
3. Life’s day will soon be o’re, all storms forever past; We’ll cross the great divide to Glory, safe at last! We’ll share the joys of heaven: a harp, a home, a crown; The tempter will be banished, We’ll lay our burdens down.
1 Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted.source Galatians 6
My first attention was drawn to two words: anyone, any.
Anyone of us and any trespass. We. Each of us. Anyone of us is at risk to be overtaken in any trespass.
So, what is a trespass anyway?Study Light dot orgsays (in part) to deviate from the right path. Turn aside. Wander.
In our modern English, how about the word trespass? What have we done when we trespass? We might say we have wandered off to a place that is not ours; a place we do not have permission to be.
Are you getting this with me?
Anyone of us is at risk for wandering off to a place that we do not have permission from The Holy Spirit to be. And because of this, we have a command here in Galatians 6 to look out for one another and to keep a tight beam on ourselves as well.
May we each be strengthened today against any and every trespass.
