All Things

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28

Yesterday I posted Matthew 6:25-27 and titled it Sparrow.
This morning a devotional I happened to read was on this verse. I love when that happens.

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Matthew 10:29-31

Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. 
Are you not of more value than they? 
And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?” 

Matthew 6:25-27

Romans 8:38-39

For I am sure that neither death nor life, 
nor angels nor rulers, 
nor things present nor things to come, 
nor powers, 
nor anything else in all creation, 
will be able to separate us from 
the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Isaiah 55:11

So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: 
it shall not return unto me void, 
but it shall accomplish that which I please, 
and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High 
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 
I will say of the Lord, 
“He is my refuge and my fortress; 
my God, in Him I will trust.”

Psalm 91:1-2

Easter Passover What.

Acts 12:4 King James Version (KJV)

And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people. 

Acts 12:4 English Standard Version (ESV)

And when he had seized him, he put him in prison, delivering him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people.

A friend pointed this out to me several years ago. I'd never noticed it before. Strange. I assumed it was a purely Anti-Semitic move, but maybe there is another explanation, some line of reasoning. Why was the word Easter used in one translation and the word Passover used in another? I am hopeful that the correction in later translations indicates a change in attitudes toward the Jewish people. 
What do you think?


of a fool
you free.

1 Corinthians 13:1

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, 
but have not Love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

Words of Jesus

"Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, 
but you say that in Jerusalem is the place where people ought to worship.” 
Jesus said to her, 
"Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither 
on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 
You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, 
for salvation is from the Jews."

John 4:20-22

Greater is He
Who is within me
Than he who is in the world.
