First Death then Life

2 Corinthians|1:7 And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, thatas ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation. For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead: Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us; Ye also helping together by prayer for us, thatfor the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks maybe given by many on our behalf. For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

Luke|9:23-25 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

John|10:7-10 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Better to settle it first thing in the morning: The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. This is our daily choice in the Morning :Who's the LORD who's the Shepherd today? Well of course the LORD is the LORD, but he'd like to hear that truth from our hearts first thing. Amen Father we praise your holy name, thank you for bringing us safely to this day! We have not always been faithful, but wow, you are faithful! Lord you are Lord , have your own way. Show us your will for today, may the good things you want come to pass. We believe Jesus is the son of God and you have raised him from the dead. Thank you Father, in Jesus' name, Amen.
