Gospel in a nutshell.

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”
Romans 8:35-37 KJV

“He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;

The trees of the Lord are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;”

“Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?

Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.

I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.

I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.”
