Word on the WAY
March 3 – March 10, 2014
All passages are from The New Living Translation
For we speak as messengers approved by God to be entrusted with the Good News. Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts.
Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ.
And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ’It is more blessed to give than to receive.
The people rejoiced over the offerings, for they had given freely and wholeheartedly to the LORD, and King David was filled with joy.
Let the whole earth sing to the LORD! Each day proclaim the good news that he saves.
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
