Mundy's Quote of the Day

Mundy's Quote of the Day
Should you bash or hate gays and lesbians? Ans. No. Why? God is love. If you say that you're a Christian, think of what it means, C-h-r-i-s-t: Christ, Jesus; i-a-n: like. Put Christian in its biblical definition:  CHRISTIAN (Gk. Christianos; from Lat. christianus “belonging to Christ”). An appellation for one who believes in Jesus Christ (Gk. Christos), the Son of God and Redeemer of mankind. The term was first applied to the disciples in cosmopolitan Antioch after Paul and Barnabas had taught there for about one year (Acts 11:26). At Acts 26:28 Luke records Paul as asking Agrippa if he believed the prophet, to which the king retorts: “In a short time you think to make me a Christian!” Peter observes that to suffer (1 Pet. 4:16) and to remember Christ’s own suffering on the cross (2:21–25; 4:1) is part of being “Christian.”

Connect the Testaments: A Daily Devotional

Beyond MeasureZechariah 1:1–2:13; Acts 21:1–26; Job 28:12–28
When we say, “God is gracious; God is kind,” do we fully comprehend the extent of God’s graciousness and kindness toward us? We glimpse it in Zechariah: “You must say to them: ‘Thus says Yahweh of hosts: “Return to me,” declares Yahweh of hosts, “and I will return to you,” ’ says Yahweh of hosts” (Zech 1:2–3).

An astounding reversal is hidden in these words, couched in a dialogue expressing how terribly God’s people have treated Him (Zech 1:4–6). By relying on their ancestors’ wisdom, God’s people are marching toward their own destruction: “Your ancestors, where are they? And the prophets, do they live forever?” (Zech 1:5). Instead of wiping them from the face of earth or banishing them from relationship with Him, however, God acts graciously: “Return to me … and I will return to you” (Zech 1:3). It’s an incredibly generous offer, one that the people accept (Zech 1:6)..

But this is not the end of the journey. Zec…
