V17 remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. True stuff. V21 …keep yourselves in the love of God… Time and time again the importance of walking in love is emphasised. V22 -23 Go easy on those who hesitate in the faith. Go after those who...
Unka Glen's Citadel of Enlightenment: Unka Glen... →
unkaglen: cheerfulcheesecake asked: At first I thought Unka Glen was your real (Scandinavian) name and in my head I pronounced it “Oonkah” with a Swiss accent. Thus, I imagined you were writing from a shack in the Swiss Alps called the “Citadel of Enlightenment” that was filled with candles and…
1 Cor 16
V14 Let all that you do be done with love. This chapter shows what church should be. A collective family. I don’t think Paul would be too happy about the church now. Church is becoming like a competition. Who has the largest audience…? Sigh. What can I do? There are days when I don’t feel like going to church, like today – midweek service. But I have to. But I don’t want to struggle; it should...

On friends and enemies
I am displeased with the company of friends To whom my bad qualities appear to be good; They fancy my faults are virtues and perfection; My thorns they believe to be rose and jessamine. Say! where is the bold and quick enemy To make me aware of my defects? Sage advice If people injure thee, grieve not; Because neither rest nor grief come from the people. Be aware that the contrasts of friend...
1 Cor 15
Holyspirit direct my summer. I don’t want to waste it. V10 But because God was so gracious, so very generous, here I am. And I’m not about to let his grace go to waste. Thank you for being gracious and generous to me God. I don’t understand v28 When everything and everyone is finally under God’s rule, the Son will step down, taking his place with everyone else, showing that...

1 Cor 14
5 weeks, 6 pens, 7 exams – I’m done. Thank you Lord for I know that I am above only and never beneath. I receive victory in the name of Jesus. Go after a life of love as if your life depended on it—because it does. Give yourselves to the gifts God gives you. Most of all, try to proclaim His truth. Yeah I need to increase my love capacity big time. I can be too selfish sometimes. Too self-centred....

I gave you my best You took my words as mere jest Never mind, I’m at rest
Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!– Amos 5:24 (via nicktavious) Reminds me of MLK. One of my favourite verses.

1 Cor 13. Tell me what you think of my decision?
Aaaa been looking forward to this chapter. It’s not even a long chapter. But yet so profound. V6 [Love] does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth. I’ve made a final decision not to go clubbing. I don’t know if I’m being too hard here but I think that’s “rejoicing in iniquity”. I mean I’m not the sort of a guy that would kiss a random girl, they might have syphilis of...
1 Cor 12
I wonder which “gift” I have, I wonder what part I’m playing or should play in the body of the Church. I once asked God to give me a peek into his cinema viewing room in heaven. Never realised how deep that was… Father, I want to exercise the gift you have given me. Show me how.

1 Corinthians 11 BE A MAN
Paul is such a Man’s man. [MSG] Man was created first, as a beautiful shining reflection of God. Lord, make me that beautiful shining reflection of You. I’ve been hitting the gym lately, aiming for the peak of human perfection, but you know this makes me realise to be the MAN, is to be the beautiful shining reflection of God. To be the Eden like creation. To be the original clay man. BEAUTIFUL...

Raven haired one, your smile is the ray of sun light which melts the dark clouds
MSG V5 most of them [Israelites] were defeated by temptation during the hard times in the desert, and God was not pleased. Kinda makes me sad. I keep on being defeated by temptation. God is not pleased… V12 FORGET ABOUT SELF-CONFIDENCE; IT’S USELESS. CULTIVATE GOD-CONFIDENCE. That’s what I need right now. V24 We want to live well, but our foremost efforts should be to help others live well....
alessoninhopelessromantics asked: I like all of your scripture on here :)
Paul is always cautious about his actions so he does not “detract from the message of Christ”. The message of Christ always came first with Paul. I’m compelled to do it, and doomed if I don’t! God there are some actions I need to drop so I can reflect the Message better. Show me how.
1 Cor 8
Physics exam went well. Thank God [MSG] V11 When you hurt your friend, you hurt Christ. This is what my dad has been trying to teach me. He always says “more people are watching you than you know”. Hmmm so even if you see no problem with something, avoid it if one of my fellow Christians sees a problem with it. Interesting.
