Why following the NT pattern matters | TFR

If following the New Testament pattern were a matter of option, there would need be no discussion whatsoever about following this model. But here is why it matters:

Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If someone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, which is what you are (1 Cor. 3:16-17).

Rainy Days and Mondays | Forthright: Reality Check

Not only does God know the future, he controls it! It is human for us to forget how little we control. We arrogantly make plans for the future, predicting achievements and activities as if we have any control over what will take place.

Instead of predicting the future, we might as well be catching the rain in our hats!

Here’s a better idea. Make sure that you are in a right relationship with God ( Luke 13:1-5). Then, you won’t need the weather forecast because you will be living with the weather enforcer!
