Becoming Entirely His

BECOMING ENTIRELY HIS

Let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

James 1:4

Ultimately, God will allow nothing to escape; every detail of our lives is under His scrutiny.  God will bring us back in countless ways to the same point over and over again.  And He never tires of bringing us back to that one point until we learn the lesson, because His purpose is to produce the finished product.

Support Freedom of Speech by Supporting Chick-Fil-A on Wednesday, August 1, 2012

SUPPORT FREEDOM OF SPEECH BY SUPPORTING CHICK-FIL-A ON AUGUST 1ST

I am asking everyone to support Chick-Fil-A on August 1st because Freedom of Speech is one of our most basic rights. The far Left extremists want to destroy Chick-Fil-A and its employees solely because the Founder said he stands for Family Values. First of all, he has every right to say that, and secondly, family values are not hate speech. Yet, because the far left sees someone not supporting their agenda, they want to take them down. Three Liberal mayors in San Francisco, Chicago and Boston want to use the power of the government to punish Chick-Fil-A because they don’t agree with their values.

Folks, Freedom of Speech (whether you are on the right or on the left) is one of our most sacred rights. Don’t let people take it away because they don’t agree with it. STAND UP FOR OUR RIGHTS!!

Blessings!

The Teaching of Disillusionment

THE TEACHING OF DISILLUSIONMENT

Jesus did not commit Himself to them…, for He knew what was in man.

John 2:24,25

Our Lord trusted no one, and never placed His faith in people, yet He was never suspicious or bitter.  Our Lord’s confidence in God, and in what God’s grace could do for anyone, was so perfect that He never despaired, never giving up hope for any person.

Do You See Jesus in Your Clouds?

DO YOU SEE JESUS IN YOUR CLOUDS?

Behold, He is coming with clouds….

Revelation 1:7

If there were never any clouds in our lives, we would have no faith.  They are a sign that God is there.  What a revelation it is to know that sorrow, bereavement, and suffering are actually the clouds that come along with God!

God’s Purpose or Mine?

GOD’S PURPOSE OR MINE?

He made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side….

Mark 6:45

God’s purpose is to enable me to see that He can walk on the storms of my life right now.  If we have a further goal in mind, we are not paying enough attention to the present time.  However, if we realize that moment-by-moment obedience is the goal, then each moment as it comes is precious.

The Way to Knowledge

THE WAY TO KNOWLEDGE

If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine….

John 7:17

The golden rule to follow to obtain spiritual understanding is not one of intellectual pursuit, but one of obedience.  If a person desires knowledge and insight into the teachings of Jesus Christ, he can obtain it through obedience.  The Spirit of God uncovers our Spirit of self-vindication and makes us sensitive to things that we have never thought of before.

The Way to Purity

THE WAY TO PURITY

Those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart.

Matthew 15:18

If I will simply hand myself over to Jesus Christ, I will never have to experience the terrible possibilities that lie within my heart.  When the Holy Spirit comes into me, He brings into the center of my personal life the very Spirit that was exhibited in the life of Jesus Christ, namely, the Holy Spirit, which is absolute unblemished purity.
