Beautiful Promises from Our Beautiful Savior

The first part that I read today put the following song in my head. I really love this song, especially the chorus.

Seek Ye First 

 Seek ye first the kingdom of God 
And His righteousness 
And all these things shall be added unto you 
Allelu, alleluia 

 Man does not live by bread alone 
But by every word 
That proceeds from the mouth of God 
Allelu, alleluia 

 Ask and it shall be given unto you 
Seek and ye shall find 
Knock and the door shall be opened unto you 
Allelu, alleluia

In the next part of what I read, Jesus continues to heal, and calls the people in the towns where he healed to repent. He then forgives the sins of a notorious woman at the home of a Pharisee named Simon.

He is not slowed down even in the slightest by the criticism of the Pharisees. He knows what he came for, and he moves on ahead to bring it about.  He loves his people so much!  He is fearless!
