Do not be afraid of those who kill the body
but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One
who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28
It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful,
unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy,
which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces
of this world rather than on Christ.
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ,
who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself
unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from
acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling,
fix your thoughts on Jesus,
whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
To all those in Boston and around the world, who are rocked by yet another act of terrorism…
may you be comforted by the prayers that are being lifted to God.
John 14:16 And I will ask the Father,
and He will give you another advocate to help you
and be with you forever–
John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name,
will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
