Meditating on 1 Cor. 10

@Grace2Grow (recent tweets):

faithlessness displeases God & produces idolotry, lust, sexual sin, complaining & ultimately death in wilderness.

experiencing Gods miraculous deliverence, presence, &provision arnt enuf 2keep us “in faith” ~ only Christ satisfies!

how kind of God 2show us how we hv power in Christ 2stir our own affections&appetites 2b CONTENT &selflessly GRATEFUL

how kind of God 2WARN us of pitfalls of false worship, trying 2get God 2do OUR will vs. us his, &dangerous self-confidence!

As Israel ate of sacrifices offered 2God 2commune w/God &his forgiving purpose, we eat bread &drink wine 2commune w/Jesus’ crucifixion 4us!

It’s so easy 2b self-deceivd, think we’ve victory over an area of temptation.But even the miraculous won’t promise our faithfulness.

God will ALWAYS provide a way for us 2escape/endure/emerge victorious over temptation. His presence WITH us is our safe place 2run!

So much more depth, here, to plumb….

About Grace2Grow

Leah holds a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, and considers herself a forever-student at heart, especially of the Word of God. The last few years have included a 160+ lbs weightloss, and a complete re-working of her "inner man" as she has had to journey from merely what she "knew" to putting that into "ACTION" .. a transformation that so rocked her core, she believes God's calling in her life includes a sense of "urgency," as the body of Christ is fully - knowingly or unknowingly - entrenched in These Last Days, just as Jesus prophesied. She has worked in various forms of professional Customer Service for nearly 20 years, from Mortgages and Banking to Automotive Plastics, and values most the opportunity to mediate and problem-solve. Leah has served over the years in varying roles, from Women's Bible Study Leader to Choir Director to Worship Leading to teaching Sunday School to working faithfully in the Nursery. She loves being a Wife and Aunt and Sister and Daughter and Friend, and loves to read just about anything she can put her hands on. She is always re-learning putting feet and muscle to these things, but she has learned there is incalculable value in "working the plan," and "being faithful with LITTLE so as to be entrusted with MUCH." And she is trusting her beloved God and Savior for the "much" yet to come. You can find more of her musings on her blogs at http://grace2grow.com and http://grace2grow.blogspot.com/, or follow her on Twitter at https://twitter.com/grace2grow
