Glory Seed Guidelines

Notice – The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

These daily devotionals are brought to you by Gary Piper, a writer with our Sister Site, Natural Spirit Ministries. TheologyWeb encourages you to visit and support their site.... they have many informative articles which can be discussed right here. If you enjoy Gary Piper's devotionals, please send him an encouraging note or post. We are very appreciative of our partnership with Natural Spirit Ministries and look forward to many more co-ventures.

    A Glory Seed Devotional
    On the right side of wrong…

    “Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, he embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on his own, with no help from us! Then he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah. Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish!” (Ephesians 2:4–8, The Message)

    Once was a time I thought I was without God in my life. “…he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus.” I was wrong!

    Once was a time when I felt I wasn’t loved. “…with an incredible love, he (God) embraced us.” I was wrong!

    Once was a time when I felt God abandoned me because he didn’t answer my prayers. “…with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus.” I was wrong!

    Once was a time when thought for sure hell was drawing me to its opened door. “Saving is all his idea… He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ… All we do is trust him. It’s God’s gift from start to finish!” I was wrong!

    I don’t know about you but there are times when I really like it when I am on the right side of wrong!

    Believe it! Experience it!
    Grace and PEACE!
    Gary

    Amen Gary!
    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)
