Daily Surrender (January 6, 2016)

Here’s your daily dose of blog posts, inspirational quotes and a video, that will help you think more Biblically and challenge you to surrender daily to your Savior.

Why you should never play the lottery, How to navigate through inevitable relationship battles, what does “Simul Justus et Peccator” mean? and more…

Safely Navigating Inevitable Relationship Battles It’s inevitable. Like every year, this is going to be a year where relationship struggle will not be absent. While we are here on earth, it will not be heaven, which also means that there will be not-so-heavenly people around you. Whether a relationship with a spouse, kids, other family, co-workers, church members, fellow-leadership, or neighbors, you are going to encounter battles in your relationships. It’s just a part of life. Are we ready to handle those? If someone were to ask us, “What is your theology for how to handle relational disappointment?” how would you respond? What is your plan? No plan is a bad plan. And avoiding people will not do.

ACROSS THE RACE DIVIDE It’s a terrible and predictable pattern: A young black male, often unarmed, is killed by a police officer. After much public outcry and controversy, a grand jury decides against prosecuting the law enforcement officer. Social media explodes. Sadness, hurt, and anger overflow.

Seven Reasons Not to Play the Lottery So, if you win, don’t give from your lottery winnings to our ministry. Christ does not build his church on the backs of the poor. Pray that Christ’s people will be so satisfied in him that they will be freed from the greed that makes us crave to get rich.
