  • “Faith measures God’s doing in redeeming His design in us, as defining our lives” – Mirror Study Bible
  • Luke 16:14-17
  • We have modern-day Pharisees who will try to make themselves justified. There are modern-day Pharisees in the church today who base their Salvation on what they do rather than what Jesus has done.
  • I did emphasize this in the beginning, God does not hate people who have had a divorce. Also just because you have had a divorce in your past does not mean that God is done with you or that He will never use You for His purposes. God is about restoration, and if we align our lives with Him we will restore our body, soul, and spirit and He will fulfill His plans and purposes in our lives if we obey Him.
  • Again, I am not making a broad brush statement on divorce that applies to every divorce case out there. I do affirm that divorce is not God’s best and it is the devil who seeks to destroy families. Divorce is not in line with life and life more abundantly, it is in line with destruction.
