Friday, November 17/30, 2012: 1Tim 4:4-8,16, Luke 16:15-18,17:1-4
- passage: 1Tim 4:4-4:8
For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it
be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God
and prayer. If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things,
thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the
words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather
unto godliness. For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness
is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is,
and of that which is to come.
passage: 1Tim 4:16-4:16
Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for
in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
passage: Luke 16:15-16:18
And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men;
but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among
men is abomination in the sight of God. The law and the prophets were
until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every
man presseth into it. And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass,
than one tittle of the law to fail. Whosoever putteth away his wife,
and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her
that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.
passage: Luke 17:1-17:4
Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences
will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better
for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into
the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. Take heed
to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if
he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in
a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent;
thou shalt forgive him.
