Scripture for Meditation
Hosea 10:12Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the LORD, that he may come and rain righteousness upon you.
James 1:21 (NIV) Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which is able to save your souls.
John 12:23-25 And Jesus answered them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 25Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
Bonus: As we prepare for Easter, I’m working on a few videos from Andrew Peterson’s “Resurrection Letters, Volume 1.” For some reason “His Heart Beats” and other videos from this album will not work on YouTube. Not a flagged copyright violation, just an unexplained “video not available.” So I’ve uploaded the video to my Google Drive, and the link below is the only way to access it.
