  • Elizabeth shared from Better: How Jesus Satisfies the Search for Meaning by Tim Chaddick, Craig Borlase
    The remedy for envy isn’t getting the thing we’re envious of; rather it is peace, inward satisfaction, and a knowledge that God gives us all we truly need in life.
  • Elizabeth shared from Jon Courson's Application Commentary: Volume 3, New Testament (Matthew - Revelation) by Jon Courson
    Here’s a very simple way to evaluate whether you are carnal or not: How is your appetite? Do you crave the meat of the Word, or are you still only able to digest milk? According to Hebrews 5:10–14, the milk of the Word deals with what Jesus did for us. The meat deals with what Jesus is now doing on behalf of us in heaven presently and the big plan that will unfold eschatologically. The baby Christian only knows, “Jesus loves me, this I know.” But as great a truth as that is, he has not gone on to see who Jesus is presently and what’s ahead prophetically.

  • Elizabeth shared from Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence by Sarah Young
    Your future looks uncertain and feels flimsy—even precarious. That is how it should be. Secret things belong to the Lord, and future things are secret things. When you try to figure out the future, you are grasping at things that are Mine. This, like all forms of worry, is an act of rebellion: doubting My promises to care for you.
    Note: So true!

    if we don’t doubt the perspective of “life without God,” then we won’t appreciate the truth of “life with God.”

    “Ecclesiastes is the question to which Christ is the answer.”4 Ecclesiastes helps us ask the right questions, the ones we often avoid, and thereby sets us up for the hope that the rest of Scripture brings. The Preacher is right. If there is “vanity” in what we live for, then we should be living for something else. Something better.
