Glorifying God In Our Pain Through Hope

John 13:31 Jesus said, "Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in him."

John 17:1, 4 Jesus prays, "Father the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you...I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do."

In this life we all will eventually go through seasons of pain. No one likes pain. We do all that we can to avoid pain or numb ourselves of it.

Challenging Your Taste Buds

This past Sunday morning I challenged our church to take a "Taste Test" for the next 36 days, ending on Easter Sunday March 31. In Psalm 34:8 God invites us to, "Taste and see that the Lord is good." The challenge for the next 36 days is to taste of the Lord each day. This will involve tasting/chewing on God's Word. Psalm 119 would be a great chapter to start tasting. Jesus said that man does not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. Just as you eat breakfast every day, you are now going to eat fresh spiritual bread each morning.
