Meat to Chew On

"... rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be OVERJOYED when his glory is revealed... If you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name." 1 Peter 4:13-16

"Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth" 1 John 3:18

"Now if we are children, we are heirs- heirs of God and coheirs with Christ-if indeed we share in his sufferings that we may also share in his glory" Revelation 8:17

"I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,"
Phillippians 3:10 (this chapter is bewildering.. I want to be able to say the world is rubbish to me, I have given up all things for Him. I want to have 3:10 be my life anthem)

"But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.
1 Peter 2:20

Phyllis, my dear, you are fabulous. So lately I've been feeling a real need for a Rib's Study revival. Seriously. What do you think?

Its up to y'all. I would love to.. and if you guys want to dive into an actual study we can. I have some topics I wouldnt mind studying. But it will take y'all finding a time to do it. I dont know yer schedules. But I am adaptable. So feel free to step up and figure that part out. maybe something like sundaysbefore or after sullvans, or an afternoon during the week. I dont care. Let me know
