Message of the Day: The Eternity and Immutability of God and the Brevity of Human Life

Before the mountains were brought forth,
Or ever You had formed the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God
.”

For a thousand years in Your sight
Are like yesterday when it is past,
And like a watch in the night
.” (Psalm 90:2, 4, NKJV)

God alone is permanent and enduring, and therefore the only true security is found in him. Human life, by contrast, is short and uncertain, and is brought to an end as God decides and when he chooses. No matter how long a person lives, even a thousand years, the number of years is insignificant compared with the timelessness (Psalm 90:1-6)

Psalm 90:2 and remind us that first, there is one eternal and unchanging God; second, the brevity of human life.

Message of the Day: Look For The Good In Others.

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own interests, but also for the interests of others.” (Phil. 2:3-3, NASB)

Selfishness or empty conceit is the mortal enemies of unity and harmony in the church. While humility is the source of Christian unity. This is the mind-set of the person who is not conceited but who has a right attitude toward himself.

To regard one another as more important than ourselves means that Christian love sees others as worthy of preferential treatment. Christians are not to be concerned solely with with their own spiritual progress, for this can lead to self-centeredness and pride.

We must learn to look for and admire the good in others!
