What Then?

“What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!…For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God…I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 6:15, 8:6-8, 12:1-2, NKJV

[Something we all would be well off to consider in our own lives…]


Smoke and Fire

I apologize for the swear word in this song. But it fits my mood. My ball and chain is made of smoke, yet its as strong as steel…

Life beats me down…
I am going to drown…

My vision is clouded…
My efforts are routed…

The smoke surrounds me…
And from it I can’t seem to flee…

My determination exits thru the door…
As another match hits the floor…

And yet there is hope in all this:

Slavery

I’m just now starting to read bout it all, but I figured I’d give people a heads up: there are still 27 million slaves worldwide. And there’s a whole “army” of abolitionists round the world trying to stop it. A few of the organizations are these:


Visit the Amazing Change Website

(Has a petition to sign to help end slavery)


Visit the Amazing Grace Movie Website

(Is a movie that is about abolitionists in Great Britain)

I implore you to go check these people out, even if only to sign the petition. Please do.

God Bless,
Pilgrim.
