Take a Shot

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Throw your love in the air, take a shot for the team, and God will catch you with a safe landing.” ~ Jon Barnes

Enjoy Life

 It is so much fun to offer assistance, leadership, and guidance to people who are in need and appreciate your effort. I enjoy throwing my love in the air to let God hit someone with it and watching how God’s Love works through our lives.

God’s Effort

 God’s effort, wisdom, and understanding tend to go unnoticed, since it seems so natural, consistent, honest, real, and easily accessible.  Look how easily we take the daily supernatural ways of God and provisions for granted. I am ashamed at myself.

Best Shot

 I want to do my part and take my best shots in love so that I can contribute on God’s Team. There are also many Good ways to help and serve as we all look for solutions and communicate our ideas in a loving way. Your best shot for God Never comes up short.
Today’s Question
Did you pass the ball or play good defense when you didn’t have a good shot to take?
Enjoy Today’s Reading.

Hebrews 4

A Sabbath-Rest for the People of God

Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed.[a] Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said,
“So I declared on oath in my anger,
    ‘They shall never enter my rest.’”[b]
And yet his works have been finished since the creation of the world. For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: “On the seventh day God rested from all his works.”[c] And again in the passage above he says, “They shall never enter my rest.”
Therefore since it still remains for some to enter that rest, and since those who formerly had the good news proclaimed to them did not go in because of their disobedience, God again set a certain day, calling it “Today.” This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted:
“Today, if you hear his voice,
    do not harden your hearts.”[d]
For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; 10 for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works,[e] just as God did from his. 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.
12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight.Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Jesus the Great High Priest

14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven,[f] Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
