Jesus Hides Life in Us
Genesis 3:22–24; Job 19:26; Acts 2:31; 13:36–37; 1 Corinthians 15:21–23, 26, 42–57; 2 Timothy 1:10
Even though death, which sprang on us by the transgression, compels the human body to the debt of decay, yet since Christ is in us through His own flesh, we shall surely rise. For it is incredible, or rather impossible, that Life should not make alive those in whom it is. For as if one took a spark and buried it amid much stubble, in order that the seed of fire preserved might lay hold of it, so in us too our Lord Jesus Christ hides life through His own flesh, and inserts it as a seed of immortality, abolishing the whole corruption that is in us.

Knowledge Without Righteousness
Proverbs 1:7; Colossians 2:8; Hosea 14:9
There never has been a day when knowledge has been sweeping over the earth as it is at the present time. We are living in a most marvelous age.… But this doesn’t mean that righteousness is increasing. Therefore, let us be wary.
