Gems in the book of Romans
Romans 5:6
But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many. Romans 5:15
“Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned.” Romans 5:12
People sometimes ask, “Was it fair for God to condemn the whole world just because of one man’s disobedience?” Why should we suffer the consequences of Adam and Eve’s disobedience? One way of looking at it, would be asking, “if it was me, what would be the chance of me not falling to the devil’s temptation? But as it happened, the first man, Adam, gave in to temptation and disobeyed God’s direct command. Therefore, sin, or rebellion against God, as an active principle or power gained entrance into the human race (1) Two results followed: (a) Sin and corruption entered Adam’s heart and life and became part of his being. (b) Adam then passed on sin into the human race’s life-stream, corrupting all people from then on. All humans are now born into the world with an impulse pulling toward sin and evil; it is now part of our nature - Romans 5:12. The good news is that Jesus, the second Adam, came into the world to reverse this curse. Now in Jesus, we are justified by His blood and our faith in Him.
A good life makes a man wise toward God, and gives him experience in many things. The more humble a man is in himself, and the more obedient towards God, the wiser will he be in all things, and the more shall his soul be at peace.
A short message to ponder on… It seems that slowly even the Catholic church is going astray with the pope declaring that same sex marriage is acceptable... Where are we heading to? We have to press harder and pray within our families, so our children will be reared in a healthy environment.... where our norm of a dad and a mum bringing up a family still be tomorrow's norm.. just as a couple of decades ago the general church had some kind of authority, we need to pray that the God given authority shall prevail...
Wisdom’s instruction is to fear the LORD, and humility comes before honor. Proverbes 15:33

WOL Marriage Devotion
Several times we hear spouses complaining that their partner does not encourage them or support them. Sometimes we hear the cry of spouses worried that their spouse discourages them. This is not the way God designed marriage to be. The couple is to compliment each other and help one another to reach the fullness of their potentials. If you are that type of spouse, the word for you today is: “Be an encourager; the world has plenty of critics already.” Dr. Chapman says that one of the love languages is “words of affirmation.” This includes the words of encouragement that
the spouse needs to hear. Encouragement to do what the spouse likes and feel is essential to his person. You can choose to be your spouse’s biggest encourager, not his/her biggest critic. Someone wrote: “Choose to be the person who wipes away their tears, not the one who causes them. Choose to become a cheerleader for your spouse’s strengths instead of always pointing out his/her weaknesses.” Encouragement is a simple-but-powerful tool to bring fuel to your marriage and joy to your spouse. A spouse let down is a worried person; however, an encouraged spouse is cheerful. This builds and encourages love. Question for Reflection: Through both my words and my actions, how can I be a better encourager to my spouse?
“Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.” PROVERBS 12:25
