“For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.”
“For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.”
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”
–Missionary Jim Elliot
“But what things were GAIN (according to the world’s standards) to me, these I have counted LOSS for Christ.”
“WHY is it unprofitable -why is it “bad business” to spend your life
attempting to gain the things of this world.”
Our present world and the things of it are TEMPORARY – they will not last.
“…creation itself will be delivered from the bondage of corruption (decay)…”
Our present bodies are temporary but you and I ARE NOT temporary – we will last forever.
“The Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being (everlasting soul).”
