Being a blessing

Did you know that people around you who do not follow God will be blessed by God because you are there?

Genesis 30:27 (NKJV)

And Laban said to him, “Please stay, if I have found favor in your eyes, for I have learned by experience that the LORD has blessed me for your sake.”

Keep this in mind as we work through the Gospels and into Acts. Tell me if you, as a sanctified child of God, have the same power as Jesus gave to His disciples during his earthly ministry.

Holy Ghost

Holy Spirit throughout the Bible

I picked up on these from songs and memory verses.

Psalm 51:10-12 (KJV) Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

Isaiah 63:10-11 (ESV) But they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit; therefore he turned to be their enemy, and himself fought against them.  Then he remembered the days of old, of Moses and his people. Where is he who brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of his flock? Where is he who put in the midst of them his Holy Spirit,

Acts 19:2 (AMP) And he asked them, Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed [on Jesus as the Christ]? And they said, No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.

He Loves Me

From Daily Service 2Daily Service 2 (Amazon)

HE LOVES ME

This verse tells me that I ought to lay down my life for the brethren because Christ laid down His life for me. So, what does that mean for you? Should you be a doormat for everyone, or should you, starting with your brothers and sisters in Christ, put their needs above yours.  A big part of what we have been talking is about, is making better eternal choices rather than satisfying your own desires immediately.  This is a matter of training and yes, I should mention that you need to turn your life over to God now, and again every single day for the rest of your natural life.

1 John 3:16 ASV

Hereby know we love, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

1john3_16

Matthew 28:20 (KJV)
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

He Loves Me

He loves me even when I fall beneath His will
He loves me, oh, oh, oh, He loves me
When my broken heart just won’t keeps still
He loves me oh, oh, oh, He loves me

Even though He knew sometimes I’d fall
Yet and still my name He called, He loves me
Jesus, I’m so grateful for Your love

He loves me even though I was born in sin
He loves me, oh, oh, oh, He loves me, yeah
Took me like I was and now I’m free again, yeah
He loves me, yeah, oh, oh, oh, He loves me

Audio Bibles: legitimate study tools?

My pastor recently mentioned that he stopped listening to Fox News etc in the car and now has an audio Bible playing in the car while he is going around.  He said in the first place it is good because he isn’t feeding himself on negative news, but it doesn’t count as Bible reading unless you have the word open when you are listening.

My wife backed that up with an example today.  Her audio Bible left out a critical passage in Genesis and she caught it because she was following along in the passage on her computer and the Bible she has open in front of the computer (she actually looks at 3 translations at once, it is incredible).

Okay so on the positive side feeding yourself on the Word is better than worldly concerns on the news.  On the negative side, make sure you are getting the whole story by reading along as much as you can.

 

 

No other name

No other name

Here we are with Peter again, a fisherman telling Pharisees they messed up. But this passage makes it real clear that you have to believe in Jesus, call on Jesus, serve Jesus, pray to Jesus.

Acts 4:10-12 NKJV let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
