“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” –Romans 5:6-8
We hope you wonderful urbanevangie readers had a Joyful Christmas and a soon to be Happy and Healthy New year!
If there is any confusion regarding who Jesus was, don’t fret…all confusion was cleared up the day of his birth. Even as an infant History described him as The Savior, The Messiah and The Lord!!!!
“The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!” Luke 2:11
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”-Luke 4:18-19
Shortly after setting up on Mill Avenue Friday Night Jonathan met a young homeless man. After sharing the gospel and praying with him Jonathan left with the man to get him some dinner. Just then(in a quite timely fashion) an upset man sporting an epic Hawaiian shirt ran up to me, demanding some answers!
“More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die.” Romans 5:3-7
An Ironman Triathlon consists of a 2.4mile swim, a 112mile bike ride and a 26 mile run…WITHOUT a break! Most Ironman events have a strict time limit of 17 hours to complete the race. All competitors must complete the triathlon by 12midnight, Meaning, if they finish 1second after the clock strikes midnight, they do not receive the “ironman title.” The Ironman competitors range from professional athletes to those with prosthetic legs. Amazing huh?
