Death, to the believer!

Death, to the believer!

(Mary Winslow)

“I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far!” Philippians 1:23¬†

Death, to the believer, is but passing out of a world of sorrow and of sin ‚ÄĒ and entering upon a world of indescribable glory!

If we lived more in anticipation of the happiness that waits us ‚ÄĒ earth would have less hold on our hearts’ best affections.¬†¬†“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ ‚ÄĒ set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above ‚ÄĒ not on earthly things!” Colossians 3:1-2

Godly Parents Cannot Convert Their Children

Godly parents cannot convert their children

(Mary Winslow, Life in Jesus“)

“We were born with an evil nature, and¬†we were under God’s wrath.‚ÄĚ Ephesians 2:3

“You must be born again.” John 3:7

Godly parents cannot convert their children. God alone can do this. But they can lead them to Jesus, and bring them up in the fear of the Lord. And when they have done this, they have done all they can do; for the Holy Spirit alone can change the heart. They must be born again. Christ has said it. It is not a change of sentiment, nor an outward reformation of life; it is a new heart implanted by the Holy Spirit.

“They are reborn! This is not a physical birth¬†resulting from human passion or plan‚ÄĒthis¬†rebirth comes from God.” John 1:13
