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
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13
“Sacrifice thank offerings to God (thanking God honors him), fulfill your vows to the Most High, and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.” Psalm 50:14-15
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58
Nuggets of Wisdom … spread the Word
My name is Mark Horowitz. Throughout my childhood and adolescence, I believed there was a God, but never understood or knew Him. Being raised in a non-religious Jewish home, I lived my life without ever recognizing I was a sinner and that the forgiveness and love of God was something needed and available to me. I always thought I was a “good person” and that would be good enough to get into Heaven, especially being Jewish. After I got married, my wife Sharel started reading the Bible. She was so excited about what she was learning. Every day she tried relentlessly to get me to read the Word with her. I wanted to have nothing to do with it. I was hostile to anything that had to do with Jesus Christ. After hearing her say, "why don’t I believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah?" I asked myself that very question. Was it because of my Jewish upbringing? I wondered if there is more to this than what I perceived. I started reading the Bible on my own personal journey of truth finding prophecies of the Messiah in the Old Testament, then reading their fulfillment in the New Testament. More and more God revealed his truth to me. In 1992, at the age of thirty seven, I asked Jesus into my heart as my Lord and Savior. By his grace I am able to share his word with others. The Lord has given me a ministry to spread the Word of God through the Internet using “Biblestuph.com” I started putting selected scriptures together every week with a theme so that believers and nonbelievers could grow in the knowledge of God. I know that the Word of God is vital for salvation and spiritual growth.
