THE LIVING GOD – KNOWS

Do you need #help?  Where do you turn for #direction? – #Siri? #Alexa? When someone wants to know ‘how to’ achieve a #goal today, I have observed everyone clicking onto the internet for the #knowledge needed to complete the task at hand.  Computers have made information and resources readily available at our fingertips.  With this empowerment of knowledge are we better or bitter?  I see our world raging with entitlement from self superiority!  “No one tells me what to do or how to do it” is coming through loud and clear in my ear from a society rebelling against the all knowing God’s directions.  If you want to be a know it all then go to the One Who Knows It All.  “Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogance come out of your mouth:  for the LORD IS A GOD OF KNOWLEDGE, and BY HIM ACTIONS ARE WEIGHED.” 1Sam2:3  If a computer can tract your actions, how about GOD’S surveillance? “GOD KNOWS THE SECRETS OF THE HEART”Ps.44:21    “THE LORD KNOWS THE DAYS OF THE UPRIGHT” Ps.37:18  As a child about eight years in age, I thought my father knew everything.   So after he answered a question which stumped me,  I was feeling my oats and said, “I guess when I graduate from college you will still be smarter than me.”   He didn’t correct my grammar from me to I, but just gave me a big smile!  I wonder if our heavenly Father just smiles at us when we think we can surpass His Knowledge?  My prayer is that I will listen and follow  God’s instruction through His Word for Jesus said, “MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, and I KNOW THEM, AND THEY FOLLOW ME.”  John 10:27

Ethics Regarding Situation

Bible Audio Blog

 

How are our #ethics shaped by the situation in which we find ourselves?  Should each situation have an effect on our ethics?  What are the purposes of situational ethics?  What are the dangers?  What is the ‘Pure Principle of Love?’  Did Jesus ever set aside the law in favor of a person?  Did Christ come to destroy the law or fulfill it?  What is wrong with a theory based on the exception rather than the rule?  What happens when there are no absolutes?  I would like to remind you that this message was delivered in 1980 and it is more true today than when it was first delivered.

Next week we will start to look at what the Bible says about tangible ethics of an honorable nature.

THE LIVING GOD – POWER

from Barbara's Bible

#Power is appreciated by all whether the source is through #electricity, #water, #wind, #sun, #machines, or #man.  I see ads for products to promote powerful bodies or to get you to buy their power drink.  Switch the channel and the commercial is showing you that car with the most  horsepower.  I can remember when scientists split the atom enabling the atomic bomb; however, we didn’t stop there!  Later America was sending men into space (without the internet) and they had to splash down in the ocean upon re-entry!  Today we have computers that are pushing the envelope in all avenues of life, but have we overlooked the true power source?  Open your eyes to happenings around you…Acts 1:7″It is not for you to know the times or the seasons which the Father has put in His own power”  Power is in God’s control.  Do you rely on the power company constantly?  How about GOD?  “Your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the POWER OF GOD” ICorth.2:5    For us personally and eternally, God’s power is demonstrated through Christ’s death on the cross and His resurrection.  “preaching of the CROSS is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved IT IS THE POWER OF GOD” 1Corth.1:18  Paul instructs us of God’s might in Eph.1:19 “WHAT IS THE EXCEEDING GREATNESS OF HIS POWER TO US-WARD WHO BELIEVE, ACCORDING TO THE WORKING OF HIS MIGHTY POWER, WHICH HE WROUGHT IN CHRIST WHEN HE RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, AND SET HIM AT HIS OWN RIGHT HAND IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES FAR ABOVE ALL PRINCIPALITY, AND POWER, AND MIGHT, AND DOMINION AND EVERY NAME THAT IS NAMED NOT ONLY IN THIS WORLD, BUT ALSO IN THAT WHICH IS TO COME.”Christ was crucified through weakness, yet He lives by the power of God.  We also are weak like him, but we shall live with Him by the power of God toward you” 11Corth.13:4   It is written in Matthew 28:18  “JESUS CAME AND SAID, ALL POWER IS GIVEN UNTO ME IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH”   I trust in His Everlasting Arms!

Ethics From the New Testament

Bible Audio Blog

 

Last week, we learned that #ethics are the standard by which we judge behavior.  What can we learn about ethics by looking at the New Testament of the Bible?  How did Jesus Christ approach the subject of ethics?  How do we as a society approach this subject?  Did Jesus strike down all of the laws from the Old Testament or did He build on those laws?  What did Paul say about the law and how did it compare to what Jesus said?  What about the other writers of epistles in the New Testament?  What was common among all the lessons Christ gave on ethics?  To whom are we responsible?  Speaking of ethics, why doesn’t the New Testament condemn slavery more strongly?

Next week we will look at what the Bible says about ethics and whether they are affected by situations.
