Come as you are. Bring a Bible & a friend. All are welcome. Studies last one hour.
Have you ever seen two little children fight? The concept of bitterness evades them. Though their anger can flash as hot as any adult's anger, they are quick to let go, forgive and press on. Moments later, it can be as if nothing happened.
As Paul closed his letter to the Galatians, he wrote, “From now on let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus” (Gal. 6:17). What does it mean to “bear the marks” of the Lord Jesus?
In Paul’s case, he literally endured a great deal in his body for the Lord. To the Corinthians, he wrote, “From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep…” (2 Cor. 11:24-25). To physically endure such would be the absolute undoing of many a fair-weather Christian today.
