“Over time, the cowboys of the American West developed a personal culture of their own, a blend of frontier and Victorian values that even retained vestiges of chivalry. Such hazardous work in isolated conditions also bred a tradition of self-dependence and individualism, with great value put on personal honesty…” Cowboy

[allea] I love this. [and I removed some for the sake of space]
I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]” —john 16:32-33
This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood.
isn’t this humbling? there is no discrimination for sin. we all have it. and we all have the option of giving it up to Jesus - because it was by his sacrifice that we even have access to the reward of knowing God.
sometimes I think about this: I didn’t have control over the fact that I grew up in a middle-income family in small-town nebraska and learned about Jesus growing up than whatever chances you had of having the same life. God’s provision makes it even more true that he chose me (and you!) - and for me to be exactly where I am right now.
crazy, isn’t it?
