Powerful phrases
These phrases come from today’s Plow New Ground devotional by Ed. M., about Abraham offering his son Isaac in Gen. 22.

At the core of the Christian’s understanding is the reality that God is the only One whose approval we must seek. He is not only our Creator and Savior, He is our Judge. The early disciples knew that and lived accordingly. Therefore Paul wrote, “For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ” (Galatians 1:10).

This is more of a problem for some than for others. Still, everyone must face it.

“There is a Friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24. Christ is the best, strongest, wisest, truest, most helpful friend anyone can have. His friendship is a refuge indeed. We can flee to him in any danger, and find him ready always to comfort, shelter, and bless. However many human friends we may have–we all need Christ.
