Gems in the book of Romans
Paul’s statement in Romans 2:11 “For there is no respect of persons with God” would have shocked the Jews, who thought they are God’s chosen people and have Yahweh on their side. Yet, they just learned they are not going to receive any special treatment. God is concerned only with the condition of man’s heart; that is our dedication to Him. Christians who attend Pentecostal and Evangelical churches, must not think that their salvation stands on a prayer they might have said years ago. Salvation is based first on what Jesus has done. However, believers must work out their salvation. This means they must live what they say they believe. Therefore, Romans 2:6-8 should shock the modern church, especially that section which continuously claim, “we are saved by grace and not works.” While it is true that works alone will not save anyone, works do demonstrate that we live what we believe. Everyone will receive the wages of his commitments to Christ. However, let us never take the words “there will be wrath and fury” lightly. They mean what they say. One will reap what one sows (Gal 6:7).
He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. Romans 2:6-8
A short message to ponder on… It is again that time of the year that we start to prepare our children to get back to school, after the holidays. And this time with a little difference, as a lot was lost from last academic year. Apart from the usual list of stationery, uniforms, and so on, we are to cater to a mask and make sure that our children go back to school safe. Little do we think about how safe schools will be since our young ones have no sense of self-care. The dilemma would be to send our children to school and trust in God that they are safe enough. Should not we pray that our children be blessed and kept secure wherever they are? We should pray that with the same loving care they had in our homes for the last months, they are protected spiritually at school and elsewhere. Our children will be exposed to a lot of what they missed…as the Bible teaches us, honey tastes sweet to the hungry.

WOL Marriage Devotion
Speaking the truth in love creates not only trust between a couple but also prepares the foundation for a long-lasting relationship. One of the most damaging result between a couple, is when one (or both) is found lying to the other. This seriously damages the makeup of the holiness of marriage. When God said, “Let them be one” (Gen. 2:21-24), He used the Hebrew word “echad.” It is the same word which describes the nature of the Triune God in Deut 6:4: Hear, O
Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is ONE. One of God’s qualities is "truth." He wants the couple to be one in truth with each other. Today we call it transparency. Marriage therapists rightly claim that a healthy transparency in a marriage produces a healthy marriage. This is because each spouse feels fully comfortable or honest and forthcoming with the other, that issues are brought up directly, and that there is no playing with words, lying, or hiding. Consequently, it produces low- conflict-relationship. God be with you as you speak the truth to your life long mate.
Speaking the truth in Love  Prov. 15:1
