Jesus Never Fails

Many a times in my life, the words of this childhood hymn has been a tremendous encouragement. I pray this may encourage you too. Keep looking to Jesus!
Jesus never fails, Jesus never fails
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails.

Your mother will let you down
Your father will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails.

Your husband will let you down
Your wife will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails

Your brothers will let you down
Your sisters-will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails

Your church will let you down
Your work will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails

Your friends will let you down
Your country will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails

Your wealth will let you down
Your health will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails

White Fragility, A Review

Robin DiAngelo has a sermon to preach. It is in form of a short popular book called White Fragilit y.

Jesus transformed him and in his letter to the church in Rome echoes the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, "Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them". Apostle Peter has the same words with a new twist, " Do not repay evil for evil...but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called". Peter says this posture of love for enemies is the very essence of being a follower of Jesus.
