Bible Passage(s): 1 Peter 2: 4 - 10

Memory Verse: “To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 2: 4-5

These are not the best of times for a child of God! Our world today makes it most difficult for a Christian to live a life that is worthy of his or her confession! There are many pitfalls on the way!

Memory Verse: “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. But God laid upon him the iniquity of us all”. – Romans 3:23

In fulfilling His plan and purpose for humanity, God raised His Son, Jesus Christ for us as an atonement for our sins, so that we can be reconciled to Him, and not be eternally lost on account of our sins.

The year of Repentance and Forgiveness is now in the second month; the month of February. In the past few days, I have been pondering over the affairs of our nation, particularly in the light of some recent encounters and happenings in the country.
