The LIVING GOD #FEEDS

I have been privileged to have my college-aged grandson with me this week painting my deck!   We have enjoyed eating and eating and sharing.  Last weekend, I had my children, grandchildren, great grand, and sons-in-laws around farm tables dining together.  This reminded me of the account of Jesus dining with Peter and the other disciples on fresh caught fish cooked on an open fire while enjoying the fellowship and wisdom of our Savior.  “As soon as they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread….Jesus said to them, COME AND DINE.‘  None of the disciples dared ask him, Who are you?  knowing that it was the Lord.  Jesus comes and takes bread and gives them and fish also.  This is now the third time that Jesus showed Himself to his disciples, after He was risen from the dead.  So when they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter, …lovest thou me? … Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time Lovest thou me?  Peter said, Lord, knows all things; thou know that I love thee.  Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my sheep‘  ‘Truly, I say to you, when you were younger you used to gird yourself and walk wherever you wished: but when you grow old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will gird you, and bring you where you do not wish to go’  This He said, signifying by what death he should glorify God, and when He had spoken this He said to him,  FOLLOW ME!”   John 21:9-19

Okay one more topic on guarding the tongue.  Sure #grumpycat is funny and the grumpy old man or woman is a #comedy stereotype, but what happens when you become the #joke?  How does a grateful mood affect your attitude and your life?  What is covetousness and how does this destroy happiness?  How is that different from jealousy?  How does unbelief cause grumbling?  So these are the causes, but what are the consequences of grumbling?  Is there a cure?

The LIVING GOD #SUPPLIES

#TRAGEDIES, #EARTHQUAKES, #STORMS, and #TERRORISTS are evident daily and a constant reminder that we need to send SUPPLIES to others in need.  I often feel so inadequate in giving aid to those in need.  Yes, we have many wonderful organizations that go to take food, materials, and help during disasters; however, I still see that vacant stare in the eyes of so many hurting people around the world.  I feel only our LIVING GOD through His son, Jesus Christ can supply our needs by the Holy Spirit.  1Timothy 6:17 “Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the LIVING GOD, who gives us richly all things to enjoy”   In Philippians 4:6 “in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God…19.my GOD SHALL SUPPLY all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus..20. Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever”   

Tongue Talk – The Man Who Swears

      19851110 Tongue Talk - The Man Who Swears - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

#Swearing, #cursing, #profanity – should they be a part of a believer’s speech?  If swearing proves that a person has no fear of the Lord and the Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, what does that tell us about the person who swears?  Why do court systems have people swear on the Bible?  When is that ok to do?  Have you ever sworn something fantastic, exaggerated, or just downright wrong?  How prolific has the use of GD and OMG become in public and in the media?  Which one made it easier to use in public without others recoiling from the lack of decency?  I don’t know, but I think it is literally being used by the Devil to desensitize as many as possible and to lessen the greatness of God at least in human opinion.  What is the irony of the people who use the Lord’s name the most in casual conversation?

The Right Life

The LIVING GOD #EVERLASTING

A #lifetime #warranty is rarely offered on anything today.  As I am observing the behavior of this culture, I think most people believe everything is disposable from paper to people!  What about GOD?  In the very beginning, Gen.1:27 “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him, male and female created He them.”  Ps.90:2 “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING THOU ART GOD.”   Everlasting meaning enduring, perpetual, and eternal.  Ps.136:2 “Give thanks to the God of gods, for His LOVINGKINDNESS IS EVERLASTING”  We are not disposable items for God made us everlasting in His image!  He also gave us the ability to make decisions and choices to honor and love our creator or to selfishly live for the moment of self gratification.  Either way we have an eternal warranty with our Lord and Savior.  Ps.139:23,24 “Search me, O God, and know my heart:  try me, and know my thoughts; and see if there be any wicked way in me, and LEAD ME IN THE WAY EVERLASTING”  Will your warranty be redeemed  in Heaven or Hell?   John 3:16″For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have EVERLASTING LIFE.”
