Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

July 30, 2010 (captive by beauty)

"Once I was free in the shackles of sin:
Free to be tempted, just bound to give in;
Free to be captive to any desire;
Free to eternally burn in hell’s fire.
‘Til Someone bought me and called me His slave:
Bound by commands I am free to obey;
Captive by beauty I’m free to adore--
Sentenced to sit at His feet evermore."
- John MacArthur

Charlie, Always enjoy your daily devotionals; obviously take great amounts of time and focused attention to put picture & thoughtful post together. Today's commentary/poetic thought by J. MacArthur were particularly meaningful - so well said that incredibly unique relationship with our Savior..."Totally FREE to be a Fully CAPTIVE!" Now there's one to try to wrap your head around!!! I Love it; Special Thanks, Paul
