THE LIVING GOD – EYES

THE LIVING GOD – EYES
from Barbara's Bible

This morning I was awakened to the sound of a #leaf#blower.  I arose, dressed, and scurried outside to confer with my yardman because it was the wrong day and hour for mowing.  He informed me that his schedule was changed as he had to go out of town.    As I return inside to get a cup of coffee to sip, take a seat, and then slip on my reading glasses so I can see the Word  from my Bible,  I start sneezing!  My glasses slip off -I put them on -ah-chew – off – sneeze – I saw the lights!  This goes on and on.   My eyes are watering, ears are itching, my nose is running, my heart is fluttering, and the tissues are flying.  I get up head to the bathroom to brush the pollen out of my hair and wash my hands and face.   I then refresh my cup of coffee, return to my chair, and resume my time with God’s Word.  I carefully place the reading glasses over my nose so my eyes can read the written words of the Bible.  My eyes, nose, and ears are still itchy, but I will not touch them as I open the page to Psalm 33:13,18;34:15  “THE LORD LOOKS FROM HEAVEN”  –  “Behold, the EYE OF THE LORD IS UPON THEM THAT FEAR HIM,  UPON THEM THAT HOPE IN HIS MERCY”  –  “THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE UPON THE RIGHTEOUS, AND HIS EARS ARE OPEN UNTO THEIR CRY”  Have you ever felt the presence of the LIVING GOD as you sit in chaos?

      19830828 Confidence In The Christian Life - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

How can we know that we are #saved for #eternity?  How do we follow Christ and have confidence in our salvation?  What does it have to do with our past, present, and future?  What kind of confession covers our past?  What assurances have we been given to get us through the present?  Are there new temptations coming our way that nobody has overcome before?  What does all of this mean for our future?

Have you ever heard a #lion #roar?  I don’t mean an #imitation on tv or the computer.  I mean #live and in person.  It is powerful and you can feel it shake your whole body.  What can we learn about God from this amazing story about Amos?  Where does this roar come from?  Why is the roar being heard?  Is it a lack of church attendance or sacrificial giving or is it something more basic like turning their backs on God and treating others poorly?  Do you remember what Jesus said the two most important commandments are?  Does God judge the actions of men or the motivation?  How many of these sins being committed by these ancient nations can we see being done today?  How do we put human tradition ahead of divine instruction?  What is the only way to flee from God?

THE LIVING GOD – FIRSTFRUITS

THE LIVING GOD – FIRSTFRUITS
from Barbara's Bible

What thoughts come to you when you think about Thanksgiving?  Food just might come to mind.  I know we all have a picture of that perfectly basted turkey with dressing/gravy.  As a child my favorite dish was the fruit salad with all the fresh apples, bananas, pineapple, oranges which were topped with whipped cream.  Way back in the 40’s, fruit was only available during it’s growing season, but on special holidays they would have limited supplies of fruits from the tropics.  Today our grocery stores make fresh foods available year round that come from around the world via transport and refrigeration.  I wonder if that has given many a sense of entitlement with gratitude and thankfulness being tossed aside.  As you enjoy this Thanksgiving would you read with me about the Firstfruits in 1Corth. 15:20-28  “NOW IS CHRIST RISEN FROM THE DEAD, AND BECOME THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THEM THAT DIED.   For like Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive, but every man in his own order: CHRIST THE FIRSTFRUITS; afterward they that are Christ’s at His coming.  Then comes the end when He shall have delivered up the kingdom to GOD, even the Father; when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.  For  He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.  The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death…When all things shall be subdued unto Him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto Him that put all things under him, that GOD MAY BE ALL IN ALL.”   Thank you, LORD…

What makes a #Christian different from the rest of the World?  They bear #fruit.  Interestingly, my pastor at #BiltmoreChurch touched on this today when he said that it is the fruit of the Spirit, not the fruits of the Spirit.  His point was that Christians should have all of these characteristics not just a few (Brother Tommy makes this point as well).  Is #Love for others easy and natural or an act of will?  How do we get joy?  The whole world wants peace, and yet Christ has given it to His followers as a gift.  What is meant by long-suffering?  Is gentleness something we could use more of today?  Does goodness come from God our ourselves?  Faith produces what?  Is faith dependent on circumstances or situations?  How has meekness gotten a bad rap?  Was Jesus meek?  How about Moses?  Temperance or self control is not en vogue right now, but should it be?
