They have stumbled over the stumbling stone and whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.” Romans 9:32
In this passage, Paul joins two Old Testament Scriptures that were prophesying the Messiah. The two passages combined the two classes of people that Paul was addressing: the Jews and the Gentiles. Depending on how one receives the Christ, one would receive his or her rewards. One class would experience Christ as a stumbling block, while to others, He would become their Cornerstone. The Gentiles received him and were filled with hope, while for the Jews, Jesus became the stumbling Rock. Addressing this Scripture from another perspective, we can see Jesus today as the stumbling Rock to many. This is because people have become antagonistic towards Him. The Word of God that can give life in this dark and depraved generation is rejected. The world has made up its own ‘messiah’ based on materialism, spiritualism, and humanism. Jesus is rejected! However, for those who trust in Him, Jesus is the Rock of their Salvation, the Foundation that keeps them strong in times of trouble, and the Anchor that keeps them secure. To the rest, on whom it falls will be crushed (Matt 21:44). Why Not?

PRAYING FOR THE NEXT GENERATION So, all of us at one time were children and we all had our own way of playing and imagine things. The same goes today, we have children and they play, talk to themselves while they play and imagine things too. But have we ever wondered at what level of imagination they get carried away with? Would it be nice if they get caught spiritually in the same way. Shall we pray that at a young age they experience the true meaning of being caught in God’s wonder and feel the real pleasure the Lord has to offer?
Greater tranquility of heart is his who cares for neither praise nor blame

WOL Marriage Devotion
GOD’S PLAN FOR A MARRIAGE IS THE BEST PLAN. In today’s world, having a Chris - tian family is no longer the norm. This phenomenon is taking place not only in the Pentecostal and Evangeli - cal Churches, but also in traditional churches. Cou - ples come together with a different understanding of the Christian faith is one factor. Another factor is when a Christian couple have children, and soon after they get to a certain age, the world of education influences them in a different direction. As a result, spouses and parents pray to God for the salvation of their loved ones. Without challenging in any way the abso -
lute Sovereignty of God, we pray for God’s will to be done. Many parents stand on the several promises of the Bible. In Acts 16, we find the account of Paul with Silas in prison praising the Lord and how the jailer was moved to ask the evangelists what he needs to do to be saved. Paul promised him that if he believes in the Lord Jesus, himself and his family will be saved. The main issue that one induces from the passage is that the change of heart of the head of the family would be influential to the salvation of the whole family. Consequently, at God’s appointed time, God will hear the prayers of the cou - ple. It is His will for everyone to be saved. Question for reflection: Are you consistently praying for the salvation of your family?
