James Of his own will begat he us with the 'word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures. God is bringing forth a new day, a people the dayspring, a light that is just in the.
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory :ofGod in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that 'the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. God who has shined forth out of darkness has placed into our hearts an 'illumination ray.
Proverbs But the path of the just is as shining'light that ishineth brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. What is the perfect day? Oh, the 'perfect ,day is when we all get to heaven! No, that is not the perfect day at all. It has benn translated"very few times as perfect, but many times as prepared or established. Let's put it this way: the path of the just is as a little morningg light, a little ray that grows brighter and brighter unto the day it is fully.
You, as a little ray of 'light are to grow brighter until the day God established you in your right place, for God is the placer of all his stars. He is causing the dayspring early dawn to know! One can't fill his place until he knows where it is. The just is becoming ,prepared or established. How frail the light is when God first lights our candle.
But 'remember he is not only the light that lighteth every man that cometh into the world, but 'he is the source of light that shines in the darkness-and darkness :comprehend it not, so this becomes another depth of meaning. Psalms' This is the day which the Lord. He is not talking about Sunday, no not at all Gen. This people God's army is becoming an illumination spirit.

This Day People is becoming identified with the 1 am. This people is 'really becoming the day of the Lord and the day of the Lord will not really come to ,it's noon day light brightness until this people have become. You will have to have ihe 'iidcImi of God before you can go on'into the 'purpose ofGod. S 1 Corinthians Let a man so account of us, as of the minister of Christ, and Stewards of the mysterious God.

The message we are sending, however, is that gambling isn't addictive like saying smoking won't kill you. It will. Even second-hand smoke.
The 16sson learned last week is that second- hand gambling may also be harmful to your health, reputation and career.
There is something very wrong with us when we're spending idle time ripping on Super Bowl officials for perceived blown calls and implying that they must have bet on the Steelers to win when what we all should be doing is exhorting the evils of gambling before it implicates our athletic heroes.
It deeply saddens us all that a squeaky-clean icon such as Wayne Gretzky, the face of hockey, would be linked to a gambling scandal.
Even if he didn't place bets, he obviously knew something about the illegal ring fronted by his assistant coach Rick Tocchet,'who booked the high-roller bets of his wife, Janet Jones Gretzky. At first we were all. Except that he was caught on a wiretap pleading with Tocchet not to implicate his wife. Those wire taps have a way of revealing secrets. So we now must apply logic.
If Gretzky did know and he did butlied about it, why should we believe him when he says "I don't bet on sports"? Too many athletes before him have breached our trust. Pete Rose. Kobe Bryant, Maurice Clarett the list goes on. A man like Gretzky deserves an even break, however, given his pristine reputation, generosity as an athlete and ambassadorship of the game. Call me naive, but I'm going to cut Gretzky some slack onthis one until I learn differently.
He obviously knew about the gambling, but was trying to protect his wife after realizing he:. Gretzky could fire a slap shot from the blue line that would kill a gnat on the left cheek of the goalie's mask.
