10/24/16 We Do All For Jesus & For You

“Again, we are not writing these things out of pride in ourselves, bragging to you of our best qualities.  We write these things in order to give you an answer for those who accuse us of doing so, and who also are doing that very thing – bragging about themselves to you, of their own outer qualities instead of the state of their hearts.  There are those who accuse us of insanity because of our zeal for the Lord, but if it is so, then we are insane for God.  And then there are those who accuse us of the opposite – for being too shrewd in our dealings with people.  But if we are shrewd in our dealings with people, it is for you, in order that we ourselves would not stand in the way of the message of Jesus that we present to you.  Jesus’ love requires us to live right, seeking the good of others above our own selfish wants, because we believe that He died the death that all of us were to die, so that whoever believes in Him and trusts in Him to save them from that death should live not for themselves, but for Jesus, who died for them and came back to life so that we, too, can have life forever.”
