chatter that matters

This month our theme at the blog is REFINED. 

The good. The bad. The ugly. 

His praise. His glory. His honor. 

God makes beautiful things out of us.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.

In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
— 1 Peter 1:3-7


Where do we find our strength?
Not in the mirror, not in our wallet, and certainly not in the world.

In Paul's letter to the Ephesians, he reassures believers that their identity is not found within themselves but in Jesus! We are God's children made one in the body of Christ and given the greatest defense against the devil's schemes. The armor of God! 

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”

— Ephesians 6:12-13
