चार्ल्स डार्विन (Charles Darwin) को क्रम-विकासवाद (Evolutionism) आज विश्वभरि सिकाइन्छ। यसको दाबीअनुसार जीवनको उद्भव निर्जीव पदार्थबाट आफसेआफ भएको हो र सबै जीवहरू कुनै प्रारम्भिक एक-कोषीय जीवबाट क्रमिम रूपमा विकास भएको हो। यस पाठको मूल तात्पर्य यो हो कि बाइबल विश्वास गर्नेले क्रम-विकासवादलाई रद्द गर्नुपर्छ किनभने बाइबल र क्रम-विकासवाद एकआपसमा मेल खाँदैनन्।

“Truth, wisdom, learning, and good sense—these are worth paying for, but too valuable for you to sell.” Proverbs 23:23 (TEV)
We like to spend money on comfort, but the Bible teaches that it is wiser to invest in character.
God wants us to take some of our money and invest it in ourselves — in personal and spiritual improvement. The Bible says, “Grow in spiritual strength and become better acquainted with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18, TLB).
Becoming a Christian is such a joyous event. We’ve been given new life and feel that we truly are a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17). Our sins are forgiven and we’ve been washed clean.
But then, our old nature begins asserting itself. We still have that temper problem. We still battle lust. We are still plagued by guilt. What happened to the new life? Why do we still feel trapped by the old one?
The problem, of course, is as old as mankind. We must battle our old nature, as Paul talks about in Romans 7. And we certainly can’t do it on our own. As Paul proclaims in Romans 8, only Christ can set us free through the power of his indwelling Holy Spirit.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9 (NIV)Is there pain in getting in shape? Yes. Is there a profit to it? Yes. Is there pain in doing the right thing in your marriage? Yes. Is there profit to it? Yes. Is there pain in having a daily quiet time and being disciplined? Yes. Does it have profit and benefit? Yes. To endure short-term pain in a situation, you need to look at the long-term reward.

May God be merciful and bless us.
May his face smile with favor on us.
The New Living Translation of Psalm 67:1 speaks of God’s face smiling with favor on us. This accurately renders the sense of the original language, which reads literally: “May [God’s] face shine upon us.” Peoples of the Ancient Near East would speak of the shining face of a king or a god. This image may have been based on the way in which a smile “lights up” one’s face. Or it could have been related to the shining of the sun. At any rate, the shining, smiling face of God does not only convey God’s pleasure, but also his blessing. When God’s face shines upon us, he pours his goodness and grace into our lives. Read More…
