Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, though whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God. And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person- though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die. But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.

Much more surely then, now that we have been justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from the wrath of God.
For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the
death of his Son, much more surely, having been reconciled, will we be
saved by his life.
But more than that, we even boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and
death came through sin, and so death spread to all because all have
sin was indeed in the world before the law, but sin is not reckoned when there is no law.
Yet death exercised dominion from Adam to Moses, even over those whose
sins were not like the transgression of Adam, who is a type of the one
who was to come.
But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died
through the one man’s trespass, much more surely have the grace of God
and the free gift in the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, abounded
for the many.
And the free gift is not like the effect of the one man’s sin. For the
judgement following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift
following many trespasses brings justification.
If, because of the one man’s trespass, death exercised dominion through
that one, much more surely will those who receive the abundance of grace
and the free gift of righteousness exercise dominion in life through
the one man, Jesus Christ.
Therefore just as one man’s trespass led to condemnation for
all, so one man’s act of righteousness leads to justification and life
For just as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so
by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.
But law came in, with the result that the trespass multiplied; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,
so that, just as sin exercised dominion in death, so grace might also exercise dominion through justification leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

i will be updating this weekly when i can to add the powerpoints i just made, but please be patient! these take a lot of time but i really want to help other people succeed.
the powerpoints include important points from each section and subsection, as well as an overview of the main topic for each section, as well as a top ten things to remember slide for every chapter.
1. buzzcut season – lorde // 2. home – daughter // 3. ghosts – pvris // 4. roman holiday – halsey // 5. east of eden – zella day // 6. leave the lights on (dntst rework) – meiko // 7. deeper devastation – jesca hoop // 8. woodwork – sleeping at last // 9. carol sparks – frederik wiedmann // 10. home – gabrielle aplin // 11. maybe – london grammar // 12. get lucky – daughter
Monday Night RAW (5/29/2017) Main Event Match Ratings and Thoughts
Last nights episode of RAW had two PPV quality matches booked, and I shall rate them as such. Did they deliver on their potential?
Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe vs. Bray Wyatt 3.5/5 (*** ½) - The story of Joe and Bray having a temporary alliance to take out Finn was brilliant and made Finn seem like the biggest threat in this match despite being the smallest man, which is smart booking as it seems like he’ll be facing Brock Lesnar. All three guys worked a good match, and the finish with Joe stealing the pin after Finn hit his finish was great. It sucks that this match had no stakes to it, because it would have been even better had it meant something.
Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns 4/5 (****) - A rematch of the main event of Money in the Bank 2016, and a battle between two former members of The Shield who have great chemistry, this wasn’t gonna be anything less than a good match. Wasn’t as great as their MITB match, but for the main event of RAW this was pretty damn awesome. Lots of sweet spots and near falls, and another match to help silence people who irrationally hate on Roman because ‘he can’t wrestle’. The finishing sequence was awesome as well.
The main event scene on RAW right now between these five guys alone is awesome, it’s a shame the title is trapped on Lesnar when there is a great amount of full time talent that could be feuding over it, instead of them feuding for a chance to be fed to Lesnar.
for the past few months I've been texting a friend of mine diagnosed with cancer a verse or two a day and my supply of favorites are running out. if you don't mind can you tell me your favorites or some that come to mind? if your followers would like to as well I'd be more than happy to have messages in my inbox of their favorite verses. thanks and God bless :))

"We are Christ’s ambassadors. God is using us to speak to you: we beg you, as though Christ himself were here pleading with you, receive the love he offers you—be reconciled to God!"
To place faith in Jesus is more than simply believing that He exists. Saving faith in Jesus requires that one believe the testimony of the Scriptures concerning Jesus, that Jesus died in our place, becoming sin for us and taking upon Himself the wrath of God that was due to us, and that Jesus rose again from the dead (Romans 10:9-10); that one completely trust in Christ alone for justification before God, and not in any outward ritual or practice (Romans 3:28, 4:5, 5:1, John 3:36, Galatians 2:16).
The regeneration and indwelling of the Holy Spirit enables submission to Jesus as Lord in the form of repentance, a declaration and a determination to turn away from sin towards God’s commands (Ezekiel 36:26-27; Acts 2:23).
Jesus fulfilled the Old Covenant, and by faith in Him, we also fulfill the Old Covenant. The blood of Jesus pays the price for our sin. Jesus officated the New Covenant by the shedding of His blood, and by faith in Him, we become members of the Bride of Christ.
If you’re reading this and you do not have Jesus, I beg you, receive Him right now. Confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ died for your sins, and believe in your heart that He is Risen. Confess your sins to God, for He is gracious and merciful and He will abundantly pardon. Commit to turning away from your sins and towards God now, while there is still time, and become His child, and an inheritor of the coming eternal life. What sense does it make to die in your sins? Repent and believe!
Roman works 4-5 matches a week, missed his one
year wedding anniversary with Galina, missed JoJo’s birthday and numerous
holidays, continued working even though he knew he was injured until he was
forced to have emergency surgery to save his life, and while he was out got
help for his acting skills but yet, according to haters, he has no passion for the
business and gets things handed to him because he’s part of the Anoa’i family
