A defeated Christian is a Christian with no joy. They are not blessing others, therefore they are receiving little blessing from on high. The Bible calls this the law of "sowing and reaping." Candy B.
My comment to Candy's latest post:
What would you say to Steven Curtis Chapman and his family right now?
Elena, I probably wouldn't say anyhing to he and his family, because I don't know who he is.
I guess if I saw him on the street, maybe I'd say "hi," or something.
Steven Curtis Chapman is a Grammy-winning, Christian singer-songwriter. I'm pretty sure if you saw him or heard one of his songs you would recognize him.
His little 5 year old daughter was accidentally struck and killed by the family car driven by her teenage brother in the driveway of their home.
Steven Curtis Chapman and his family have done some interviews on Good Morning America and Larry King to talk about how they are dealing with their grief and their faith during this difficult time.
The scriptures tell us that there is a time for everything, including a time to be sad.
