How to Graduate with Highest Honors (2)

How to Graduate with Highest Honors (2)

“That…day…God will reveal who his children really are.” Ro 8:19 NLT

By living a sacrificial life.Salvation is free, but graduation with highest honors costs dearly: “I have suffered the loss of all things” (Php 3:8). Paul once had a comfortable life, then everything changed. He was beaten almost to death eight times. He faced danger at the hand of friend and foe. He endured nakedness, sleeplessness, starvation and thirst (See 2Co 11:23-29). Did he get discouraged? Yes. Did he give up? No. “I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake” (2Co 12:10 NAS). Did he pray for relief? Sure. Three times he asked the Lord to alleviate his suffering. When God replied, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness” (v. 9 NLT), he learned to “take pleasure in…insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles” (v. 10 NLT), leaning on God for strength. Where did he find such joy? Through “the infinite value of knowing Christ” (Php 3:8 NLT). Intimacy with Christ was his consuming passion. Though conscious of his problems, he stayed consecrated to his Lord. “For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ” (v. 8 NLT). Paul decided that whatever the cost, graduation with highest honors was worth it. “To share [Christ’s] glory, we must also share his suffering. Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later” on that “future day… God will reveal who his children really are” (Ro 8:17-19 NLT). Live today with that picture foremost in your mind.

Hiya! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how
to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4.
I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to
correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Appreciate it!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading
your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

At this time it seems like Drupal is the best blogging platform out there
right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
