THE LIVING GOD – GOODNESS

“Where do I turn to?” are lyrics of a song from yesteryear, but very appropriate for today.  The horrific fatal shootings in our schools which occurred because of deranged minds have all authorities concerned and contemplating solutions which could stop future tragedies.  I observe evil emboldened everywhere in our society today by the news, internet, movies, tv, and in peoples’ language and actions!  Everyone wants to be noticed, but do our actions have consequences?  What does God have to do with it?  What does God have to do with schools?  Psalm 27:11-14 gives us a pathway to goodness  “TEACH ME THY WAY, O LORD and lead me in a plain path, because of my enemies.  Deliver me from the will of my enemies:  for false witnesses are risen up against me and such breathe out cruelty.  I WOULD HAVE FAINTED UNLESS I HAD BELIEVED TO SEE THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD IN THE LAND OF THE LIVING.  Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, I say, wait on the LORD.”  My prayer is that we shall listen and learn and obey the Word of the Living God now and forever.  “Why boast about yourself in mischief, O mighty man?  GOODNESS OF GOD ENDURES CONTINUALLY.” Ps.52:1  Like the pop song of old was asking then ‘where do I turn?’  I can tell you to whom I turn in times like these — “Let the wicked be ashamed and be silent in the grave, and let the lying lips be put to silence which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.  O HOW GREAT IS GOD’S GOODNESS   WHICH HE HAS LAID UP FOR THEM THAT FEAR HIM; WHICH GOD HAS WROUGHT FOR THOSE THAT TRUST IN HIM BEFORE THE SONS OF MEN!” Ps.31:17-19

Submit To One Another

Bible Audio Blog

 

What is the first relationship that comes to mind when you hear the word #submit in a biblical context?  The one most often referenced is between a #wife and #husband.  But, what about employer and employee or teacher and student or one Christian and another?  How does this behavior differ from what we see daily and even are told by the secular arena about the way the world works?  Are there examples of how we should submit to one another?  Can this submission go too far?  Can and should a leader submit to a follower?  What is the proper balance?

Love Conquers Fear

THE LIVING GOD – HEART

#HEARTS are displayed all around us in February.  #Mojis depict all manner of  ways to immediately display heart felt emotions to loved ones with one touch on your #IPhone.  While our #technology has surged forward, has it improved our communication skills?  I observe that the IPhone truly has emboldened the magnitude of  “I”.   Self centeredness is sooo apparent today.  Notice your conversations or communications that start with “I”.   Can you remember the last time that you actually put someone else’s needs before your own wants?  Acquiring abundance seems to me to be evident on TV all the while setting life style examples for excessiveness.  “Jesus said, ‘Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is there will your heart be also‘ Matt.6:20,21″  What does that have to do with my heart, you ask?  I attribute this attitude to a hardened heart.  “If you hear God’s voice, do not harden your hearts.” Heb.4:7  What happens to a hard heart?  It turns black because their is no life blood flowing through it.  “May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ.” 11Thess.3:5  Now we were made in the image of God; so does GOD have a heart?  Psalm 33:11 says “The COUNSEL and PLANS of the LORD’S HEART STANDS FOREVER FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION”  May we ask the Lord for a red, red flowing beating heart not hardened with the burdens of sin by claiming Psalm 51 as our own.  “Deliver me from blood guiltiness O God, my salvation.  Purify me, wash me, and CREATE IN ME A CLEAN HEART”    !! ALERT!! – You have a message..Direct from GOD …*Father, God is sharing from His Heart His Undying Love for YOU by giving you ‘the gift’ of eternal life via the sacrificial, substitutional death on the cross of His Only Son, Jesus Christ *… ACCEPTANCE REQUIRED…

Receive One Another

Bible Audio Blog

 

What brings people #together despite different #backgrounds, #politics, #races, or anything else?  It is the fellowship of Believers.  Does this mean excluding non-believers?  How are we to receive each other?  Is it based on who they are or what they can do?  We may not exclude the poor but, do we get just as excited to see them?  How about someone of another race?  How do we receive one another based on Grace?
