      “The Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ” 

                              (Revised from 7/11/2013)

Here is the truth about sin, and how God’s grace through saving faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ is given by God, to those who understand and obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…

Romans 5:12… Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— (NKJV)

 

Most people believe sin began in the Garden of Eden, but it didn’t.  Sin began when God’s top angel Lucifer, decided to flex his power, and wanted to become equal to God…Isaiah 14:12-14

Sin, by its very nature, is born into every human being, since Adam and Eve fell in the Garden of Eden, to the serpent’s (Satan’s) temptations.  This natural sin nature is part of everyone’s natural make-up, from the time they are young children, until the time that they pass on from this life.

That 3 year old, who is told NO by their parents, goes right ahead and disobeys their parents at the first chance they get.  This rebellion against their parents turns into rebellion against God, as a child grows older.  God hates sin, because it is independent rebellion against God; and will devastate the lives of everyone that remains living in sin…in bondage to Satan and the ways of the world…1 John 2:15-16

The sad truth about sin, is that it blinds the unbeliever…

2 Corinthians 4:4… whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. (NKJV)   (More about “the light of the gospel” of our Lord Jesus Christ, later)

Satan is the father of sin (John 8:44), and a master of disguise.  The Apostle Paul warns us about false prophets, and Satan himself, in...

2 Corinthians 11:12-14… For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. (NKJV)

Thank goodness God sent His Son Jesus Christ, born to the Virgin Mary (Matthew 1:18)…who’s shed blood on the cross at Calvary, will cleanse the sins of those who are first drawn in by God…

John 6:44… No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. (NKJV)

Upon understanding and obeying the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, the sins of the unbeliever will be replaced with the perfect righteousness of Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:9…&…2 Corinthians 5:21)…as God’s free gift of grace, through saving faith alone in Jesus Christ, fills the heart, mind, and soul of the new redeemed child of God.

Ephesians 2:8-9… For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. (NKJV)

There is nothing an unbeliever can do on their own merit.  No amount of good works done in the name of the Lord, can cleanse away sins.  All of our own righteousness is absolutely worthless…Isaiah 64:6…  Jesus warns those who falsely believe that their good works done in the name of the Lord (like going to church every week), will forgive sins…when Jesus warns those around Him (and us) about this, in.

Matthew 7:21-23… Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (NKJV)

Having one’s lifetime of sins forgiven, is pure grace given to the unredeemed sinner by God.  God’s grace is given by God to those who seek Jesus Christ to become their personal Lord and Savior, through a personal one on One relationship, that is established between the unredeemed sinner and Jesus Christ.

This is accomplished through saving faith alone in Jesus Christ, through obedience to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, when the sinner realizes they can in no way save themselves, and turns to the Lord to receive God’s grace… (More about obeying the Gospel of Christ later)

So why should you desire to become a redeemed child of God ??  Very simply, to be in-dwelt with the Holy Spirit by God, to be supernaturally empowered to defeat Satan’s temptations, and our own carnal fleshly desires constantly urging us to sin… 1 John 2:15-16

The Holy Spirit living with-in the “born again” Christian, has been given to them by God to guide and direct EVERY facet of the redeemed child of God’s life…  It is the Holy Spirit that helps the Christian grow and mature the fruit of the Spirit, which the Apostle Paul pens, in…

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23  gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.  (ESV)

Look at this list of attributes the Holy Spirit will empower you with !!

Love, Joy, and Peace, are the most important of these 9 fruit of the Spirit…

How would you like to have a supernatural love that surpasses your mortal knowledge (Ephesians 3:19)…  A love empowered by the Holy Spirit that will enable you to love even someone screaming in your face, as Jesus tells us to do, in…Matthew 5:43-44

And how about having a supernatural  joy that enables you to go through life’s most difficult trial, and still be able to find joy…  The Apostle James tells us about this joy, in…James 1:2-4

 And wouldn’t you like to have a supernatural peace that will allow you to look upon your own death…knowing without a shadow of a doubt that you will be face to face with Jesus in heaven, the instant you breath your last breath here on earth !!  (2 Corinthians 5:8)

This supernatural peace surpasses our mortal understanding, as the Apostle Paul pens, in…

Philippians 4:6-7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God,which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (NKJV)

All of these God given blessings will be given to you by God, if you understand and obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…  How is this done ??  You must pray to God, with what some call “the sinners prayer”, that should go something like this…

“Father I am sorry for my lifetime of sins…  I believe with ALL my heart, that Your Son Jesus suffered and died on the cross, shedding His blood to cleanse away all of my sins…  I believe that Jesus was buried, and rose again in 3 days…  I repent and turn from my sins with godly sorrow and a repentant heart…seeking Jesus Christ to come into my heart to direct my life…  Father, hear my plea to receive Your grace…  Grant me eternal life with You…  Fill me with the Holy Spirit…and I thank You and praise You in Jesus’ most precious name…Amen”

I can only tell you from my own personal experience…that I made this prayer seeking salvation several times, before God graced me with salvation.  It’s not the prayer that saves us; it is a changed heart that is regenerated by God Himself…  God knows our heart, and He will only grant saving grace to those who seek Jesus with ALL of their heart, mind soul, and strength…

God finally graced me with salvation when I prayed with true godly sorrow and a repentant heart…and I absolutely knew beyond any doubt, that I was just then a redeemed child of God…(Romans 8-16) It is   God’s decision, and God’s perfect timing, to grace someone with eternal life with Him in heaven.

Failure to obey the Gospel of Christ before you die will result in eternal separation from God, and you will forever forfeit your place in heaven…

2 Thessalonians 1:8-9  in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,  (NKJV)

All Christians who are Walking in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16), should absolutely, positively know for sure, that they are indeed a redeemed child of God.  The Apostle Paul tells us this, in…

Romans 8:15-16…  For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”  16 The Spirit Himself  bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, (NKJV)

There should be no doubts for the Spirit filled Christian about where they will be headed upon their death.  No wondering if they are good enough to get into heaven.  Because none of us are good enough…

Romans 3:23…  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (NKJV)    

The power of the Holy Spirit can and will conquer sin, by those who without question, have placed their lives in the hands of the Lord.  The Apostle James says this best, when he penned this, in…

James 4:7-8… Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. (NKJV)

My friends, these blessings of spiritual fruit are totally indescribable, and have to be experienced to be believed !!

For those who have been graced with salvation…we must do our best to remain walking in the Spirit…  We see this penned by the Apostle Paul, in…

Galatians 5:16…   I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.  (NKJV)

We as Christians can only remain filled with the Holy Spirit (as the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians 5:18-20), if we live in obedience to God’s will and God’s ways…  Any unconfessed sin will leave us in a state of broken (or at least hindered) fellowship with God…

To become righteous again in God’s eyes (from a practical standpoint, because we are always positionally righteous before God), we must confess our sins before the Lord…repent of them…and turn from them… We see this very clearly, as penned by the Apostle John, in…

1 John1:9… If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness(NKJV)

Living for the Lord, with the Holy Spirit in total charge of your life, is a blessing that I pray everyone will come to experience…

Heavenly Father, Your Word is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword…Hebrews 4:12-13… I pray Lord, that You would draw to Yourself those that don’t yet know You as their personal Lord and Savior…John 6:44…  And that the truth from Your Word through obedience to the Gospel of Your Son Jesus Christ, would set them free from Satan’s chains of bondage to sin and shame…John 8:32…  I pray for this fullness of Christ in all of our lives, in Jesus’ most precious name and for His sake…Amen…

Blessings in Christ, bruce r. mills

Sharing Hope

I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

Psalm 119:11

 

Today’s Scripture & Insight:

2 Timothy 3:10–17

As Emma shared how God helped her embrace her identity as His beloved child, she weaved Scripture into our conversation. I could barely figure out where the high school student stopped speaking her words and began quoting the words of God. When I commended her for being like a walking Bible, her brow furrowed. She hadn’t been intentionally reciting Scripture verses. Through daily reading of the Bible, the wisdom found in it had become a part of Emma’s everyday vocabulary. She rejoiced in God’s constant presence and enjoyed every opportunity He provided to share His truth with others. But Emma isn’t the first young person God has used to inspire others to prayerfully read, memorize, and apply Scripture.

When the apostle Paul encouraged Timothy to step into leadership, he demonstrated confidence in this young man (1 Timothy 4:11–16). Paul acknowledged that Timothy was rooted in Scripture from infancy (2 Timothy 3:15). Like Paul, Timothy faced doubters. Still, both men lived as if they believed all Scripture was “God-breathed.” They recognized Scripture was “useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (vv. 16–17).

When we hide God’s wisdom in our hearts, His truth and love can pour into our conversations naturally. We can be like walking Bibles sharing God’s eternal hope wherever we go.

By:  Xochitl Dixon

Reflect & Pray

      How do you hide Scripture in your heart and mind? How has God’s wisdom              helped you share His truth with others?

Father, saturate my heart with Your wisdom so I can share You with others naturally and courageously.

Going Unnoticed!

 

following Jesus isn’t meant to make you feel easy and comfortable. It IS meant to make you noticeable in a good way

 

NOVEMBER 13, 2021PASTOR RANDY

This morning I am going to be cooking! Not on the grill or smoker–in the kitchen! And it’s not for dinner nor is it for supper. Well. . .unless you like indigenous leaves, plants, and dirt. Yep! That’s what I will be cooking this morning! I will bring the ingredients to a rolling boil, then turn down the heat and allow it to simmer for about 25 minutes. I will strain it into a jar, and then–the excitement begins in just 7 days!

Why am I getting excited? What’s the purpose of such a concoction? What am I talking about? The Why is gun season for deer hunting begins next Saturday. The purpose is to help me be successful in my hunting–meaning meat in the freezer. The Why is the necessity of being Unnoticed by the deer. Deer have a keen sense of smell. They can smell something out of place before they see it. For years I’ve spent good money on this product call odor neutralizers in hopes that the deer don’t smell my presence. The thing about these odor neutralizers is I can’t tell if they are working.

A good friend of mine told me about some dryer sheets that leave an earthy scent on your clothes. And with a little research on my part (and some deep thinking on my part), I discovered I didn’t need to purchase such a product–I can make my own. I will gather up some local vegetation as well as a good scoop of good old dirt–put them in a pot–let those aromas seep into that rainwater–and then pretreat my hunting clothes so that the aroma around me doesn’t attract the attention of those deer. My chances of a successful hunt rise exponentially if they don’t hear me, see me, or smell me. I need to be unnoticed! And what does all this have to do with the Kingdom Life? Glad you asked that question–because I have an answer–and an important point to make this morning.

While being unnoticed by the deer is essential for a successful hunt–being unnoticed as a follower of Jesus is a recipe for disaster. Going to a football game, you need a program so you can know who the players are. But nowadays–when it comes to being Citizens Of The Kingdom Of God–it’s hard to recognize which players are on which team.

The western church, particularly in the U.S. has been attempting, and I might add successfully, to blend in with the culture. The resulting calamity is that in many places the church has gone unnoticed. Churchians, Tenured Pew Sitters, and Aggressive Progressives have successfully sought a path to being unnoticed by the culture. It is no longer seen as a threat to the temporary Emperor of this world. Satan is no longer threatened–and so he is free to roam about, taking countless lives into an eternity of hopelessness.

But this methodology of being unnoticed fails to make this world–and the people who compose this world–any better. It’s a train wreck! Therefore I challenge each and every deeply committed follower of Jesus to become noticeable! Not my ranting and raving! But by becoming the model of the heart, mind, and Spirit of Jesus. Sure, standing out in this culture can make one feel uneasy. But following Jesus isn’t meant to make you feel easy and comfortable. It IS meant to make you noticeable in a good way. The chaos and frenzy that is all around us needs something different. It needs to see Jesus in YOU! The REAL Jesus, who is always radically different from the rest of the world, MUST be seen in you. As I go to gather my concoction, I leave you with these words:

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you:

Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. 

Romans 12:1-2 (The Message)

“50 years of marriage Today !! 11/27/2021 Written by bruce r. mills for “God’s group”

“Our Daily Bread”     http://odb.org

The Daily Devotions of Greg Laurie    http://www.harvest.org/devotional

Written by bruce r. mills for “God’s group” @  www.Godsmanforever.com

50th Anniversary Golden Anniversary SVG Printable JPEG PNG | Etsy

“50 years of marriage today !!” 

Proverbs 19:14… Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers, But a prudent wife is from the LORD.  (NKJV)

I can’t believe I have been married 50 years today to my loving wife Madeline…who has truly been longsuffering by patiently putting up with me as her husband for the past 50 years !!  My wife is my best friend…my companion…and a blessing from God, that mere words on a page could never adequately describe…

The years have flown by, and with an ever deepening love for Madeline today, I can’t begin to imagine life without her by my side…

I am hoping that the Lord will use this opening scripture and today’s writing to change the heart and life of someone reading it, as it changed my life views about my dear wife Madeline forever… When I came to this scripture verse so many years ago, it made me realize that my wife was truly a gift from God !!

Today, as we celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, I look around at young married couples today, with the divorce rates going through the roof…  I thank the Lord that my wife and I are still together after so many years…

No one ever said that being married was easy…that life would always be a bowl of cherries, so to speak… A successful marriage (in my humble opinion), takes a combination of love, trust, submission, and yes, hard work at times…to maintain a meaningful and long term relationship, with a love that continues to grow stronger over the years…

The Bible tells us that the husband is to be in charge of the household…

 1 Corinthians 11:3… But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.  (NKJV)

I have seen marriages fail, because the husband demanded that the wife submit to the husband’s unfair or selfish requests…  Marriage is a give and take proposition… More importantly…one should always try to please their spouse before their own selfish desires… Is this easy?  Heck No !!  Our natural desire is to do what we want, when we want to do it… But just like all Christians are to submit to the leading of the Holy Spirit, (Ephesians 5:18-20) I believe a successful marriage will more likely be accomplished, if we put our spouse and their feelings and needs ahead of our own…

When I read this opening scripture several years ago, God used this scripture to totally change my outlook of my wife…   If one stops and remembers that their spouse is a gift from the Lord, how can anything the Lord gives them be looked at as anything other than being perfect… The natural tendency as we get older is to gain some weight, start to wrinkle and droop in places, and then have our hair start to turn gray… For me, realizing that my wife was a gift from God, let me look past her aging exterior…and to see a perfect gift from God that I will cherish forever !!

Any gift from God must be cherished; and just as we promised on the day we were married… I _____, take you ______, to be my wedded wife/husband…to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish ’till death do us part.

Heavenly Father, I pray that Your Word about a wife being a gift from You, would touch the hearts and minds of every married individual, as it did for me… I pray Lord, that any married couple going through hard times, would first look to You for direction… And then Lord, I pray that they would humble themselves to putting their spouse’s needs and desires ahead of their own… I pray for this humility for all of today’s married couples and readers…in Jesus’ most precious name and for His sake…Amen…

Blessings in Christ, bruce

P.S.  Happy 50th Anniversary Madeline  !!

“How Is Your Race Going?” 11/26/2021 Written by Keith Haney for “THE LIGHT BREAKS THROUGH”

let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. // Hebrews 12:1 |  Bible class, Racing, We run

 

Written by  Keith Haney for “THE LIGHT BREAKS THROUGH” @ https://alightbreaksthrough.org

“God ain’t done with me yet” was my grandmother’s favorite saying as she got older.  She lived her life like the old man in this illustration.

The great evangelist George Whitefield was relating the difficulties of the gospel ministry to some friends. He said that he was weary of the burdens and was glad that his work would soon be over and that he would depart this earthly scene to be with Christ. The others admitted having similar feelings — all except one, a Mr. Tennant. Noting this, Whitefield tapped him on the knee and said, “Well, Brother Tennant, you are the oldest among us; do you not rejoice to think that your time is so near at hand when you will be called Home?”

The old man answered bluntly that he had no wish about it. When pressed for something more definite, he added, “I have nothing to do with death. My business is to live as long as I can, and as well as I can, and serve my Savior as faithfully as I can until He thinks it’s time to call me Home.” Whitefield accepted that word as a gentle rebuke from the Lord, and it helped him go on with his work calmly and patiently.  – Our Daily Bread.
For my older, wiser readers, don’t give up being a blessing to the kingdom.  The church needs you.  The mission of God needs you.  Young believers need you.  Finish the race marked out for you.

How Will You Finish Your Race?

In Hebrews 12 it says“Therefore since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders.” Paul is using the metaphor of running. “Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance.” There’s that “P” word I know that I don’t enjoy very much.

“Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

A cross-country team ran on a golf course. In order to do this, officials had to go out and place flags on the course to show the runners where they were supposed to run. One-color indicated “left turn.” Another color meant “right turn.” Another indicated to the runners to go “straight ahead.”
That was the race marked out in advance for the runners; if they wanted to win a medal, they had to follow the course marked out.
In this Christian life, God has gone before us laying out the flags for our journey.

The faith given to us by God himself allows us to run the race God has marked out.  Faith in the God who knows your end from your beginning. The God who knows all the days of your life. In his great foreknowledge, he has gone ahead of you and planted these flags ahead of you. And the Scripture says, “Run with perseverance the race marked out for you.”

Each race is unique.


This is one of the most difficult parts of the life of faith.  The Christian life at times seems unfair.  There are times in your race when you will wrestle with thoughts like, “Why does my race seem so tough?”  You want to feel sorry for yourself.  It will become easy to look at someone else and say, “Boy if I had his or her race to run, no problem. I could handle that. If I had their bank account, I could do that “p-thing”, persevere.  What If God had given me a better partner than I could complete this race?   For those traveling this journey alone, you may wish God gave you a partner to run alongside you.

When the race gets tough Satan tends to whisper in your ear “It’s okay for you to quit. You don’t have to run with perseverance because God gave you a raw deal.  Your course is so much harder than that of other people’s. It’s ok, just quit.” Have you ever felt that way?  I know I have.  When the going got tough I wanted to just quit going.

But God says, “I want you to run this race. This is what I hold you accountable for. Don’t think about others. You just look at me. And together, we’ll run your race.”  I am writing this to encourage each of us regardless of age, stage, or situation to run our race.  Persevere because God ain’t done with you yet!

The image today shows the first Thanksgiving and the guests preparing to dig into a great feast from the bounty of their first year in the new world. The current trend is to think of these first pilgrims as invaders, with the idea of possessing land and savagely taking it away from those who were there first. It’s apparent that the newcomers were sitting down to eat and give thanks with their new friends, the natives.

As a young lady, I was taught that we are a nation of immigrants. An immigrant is one who is currently living under difficult pressure by his government, by church, by a feeling of persecution or hardship. Some other words for immigrant – expatriate, settler, evacuee, squatter and refugee. These immigrants endured a treacherous journey to escape the life they left behind to start afresh.

That journey across the ocean was bad enough, but when they arrived in the new land, they had nothing except a strong faith in God and a will to begin a new life. They weathered a difficult winter, disease, death and hardship.

We think about our own situations today – being held under mandates that forbid us to celebrate Thanksgiving as we once did. We live in fear of getting COVID19 and possibly dying from it. We stockpile what we can, so we aren’t left with enough of the essentials, like toilet paper. We hear about friends and acquaintances who are facing the consequences of this disease. We live in a divided country at the moment. Many of our freedoms may be taken away.

Perhaps we should ponder on how good we have it in comparison to our forefathers. We have become accustomed to having much. It is part of our society now to own more than one car, live in a nice house with beautifully landscaped yards, take expensive trips. Yet there is a part of our population that still lives in poverty.

Martin Rinkart ministered to the people of Eilenburg, Germany during the Thirty Years War.  Not only was the town the site of many skirmishes, but many lives were lost due to disease and poverty – a common malady of that time. Rinkart officiated over 4000 funerals, including his wife’s, during this difficult time.  He often buried as many as 50 in a day. Are we living in times like this?

It’s hard to imagine having such a strong faith in such great sadness, but in the next twenty years,  Rinkart penned the lyrics to the hymn, “Now Thank We All Our God.”  The words resonate with gratitude even in adverse situations.

God dishes out great bounty even when everything seems hopeless and bleak.  We don’t always see the blessings, but God is good and His mercy endures forever – even when times are tough.  Especially when things look their darkest.

 

Now thank we all our God
with heart and hands and voices,
who wondrous things has done,
in whom his world rejoices;
who from our mothers’ arms
has blessed us on our way
with countless gifts of love,
and still is ours today.

O may this bounteous God
through all our life be near us,
with ever joyful hearts
and blessed peace to cheer us,
to keep us in his grace,
and guide us when perplexed,
and free us from all ills
of this world in the next.

All praise and thanks to God
the Father now be given,
the Son and Spirit blest,
who reign in highest heaven
the one eternal God,
whom heaven and earth adore;
for thus it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.

 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  MAY GOD’S LOVE ABOUND IN YOUR LIVES.  HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER.

Have a Thankful Heart

NOVEMBER 22, 2021 ~ DAWN

Colossians 4:2 NLT, “Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.”

When I read this verse, it reminds me that through daily devotion to prayer, we can remain alert and thankful. Prayer has many benefits, and positions us to receive blessings from the Lord. Just being in His presence and taking time to quietly listen as He speaks to our hearts, is one of the greatest blessings we could ever receive. Reflecting on all God has done, causes our hearts to overflow with thanksgiving and joy. He is so good to us.

As I celebrate Thanksgiving this week, I am thankful for your faithful support of this blog. You mean a lot to me. May God bless you and your families. For those celebrating, I pray you have a Happy Thanksgiving on Thursday.

“The Path of Life” 11/23/2021 Written by Dr. Lawson Murry for “SEIZE The DAY”

The Path of Life

NOVEMBER 3, 2021

You have made known to me the path of life. Psalm 16:11 (NIV).

One of my favorite poems is “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. The final stanza says, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference.”

Which road are you on? When I was eighteen years old, I was faced with a choice. Two divergent paths stood before me. A broad road and a narrow road. After much heart searching I chose the narrow road. Or maybe I should say the narrow road chose me. “I took the one less travelled by.”


Matthew 7:14 says,  “But the gateway to life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it” (NLT). Have you found the path of life? “Only a few ever find it,” says Robert Frost.

In Psalm 16:11 David says, “You have made known to me the path of life” (NIV). With all the ups and downs – all the ins and outs of life – we will never find the path of life unless someone helps us. David found the path of life because God revealed it to him.

Have you found the path of life? Religion isn’t the path of life. Morality isn’t the path of life. Education isn’t the path of life. Philosophy isn’t the path of life. And your alter-ego isn’t the path of life. You are going to need more than a handful of principles, more than good intentions, more than hard work, more than sincerity, more than money, and more than wisdom to find the path of life.

Who knows the beginning from the end? You and I don’t. Who knows the twists and turns that lie ahead?    You and I don’t.  Only God knows what is unknown.  Only God knows the way ahead. Only God can reveal the path of life.

Are you feeling lost? Is your life being undermined at crucial times? Are you too close to your life to really see what’s going on? Do you find it next to impossible to live in freedom and victory? If you answered yes to any of these questions you need to ask God to show you the path of life …

You see you can’t find the path by yourself. Only God can make it known. But you have to ask Him. Because if you don’t ask God to show you the path of life, you’ll never find it. So ask God to show you.

Matthew 7:7 says, “Keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened” (NLT).

Now that’s well and good. “But the gateway to life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it” Matthew 7:14 (NLT). “. . . only a few ever find it.” Why do only a few people find the path of life? Because Satan works hard to keep us from finding it. He does everything possible to keep you from seeing or getting onto the narrow road.

This may be the most important thing you hear today: You won’t find the path of life unless you fight for it. There are two sides to everything. When you ask Christ for abundant life, He hands it to you on a plate. But while He’s handing life to you, Satan will try to snatch it away. Do you really want life . . . fullness of life? Well the only way you’re going to get it, is by fighting for it.

Here’s the bottom line. There’s a sustained assault on your life by the devil and his demons. You’re in a battle for your life. You were born into a world at war. Satan is doing everything he can to spiritually oppress you. Now don’t pooh-pooh this. John Eldredge says, “To live in ignorance of spiritual warfare is the most naive and dangerous thing a person can do. It’s like skipping through the worst part of town, late at night, waving your wallet above your head. It’s like walking into an Al- Qaida training camp, wearing an ‘I love the United States’ T-shirt. It’s like swimming with great white sharks, dressed as a wounded sea lion and smeared with blood …”

Yes, you’re in a battle for your life. So what should you do? How do you “fight the good fight”? 1 Timothy 1:18 (NIV). Here’s a simple twofold strategy: Submit to Christ and resist the devil. “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” James 4:7 (NIV)

“How can I have the mind of Christ?” 11/22/2021 Posted by www.gotquestions.org

1 Corinthians 2:16 | From the Inside Out

                                       

Posted by www.gotquestions.org  

Original post @ https://www.gotquestions.org/mind-of-Christ.html

 

How can I have the mind of Christ?

ANSWER

In 1 Corinthians 2:16, Paul quotes Isaiah 40:13 and then makes a statement concerning all believers: “We have the mind of Christ.” Having the mind of Christ means sharing the plan, purpose, and perspective of Christ, and it is something that all believers possess.

Having the mind of Christ means we understand God’s plan in the world—to bring glory to Himself, restore creation to its original splendor, and provide salvation for sinners. It means we identify with Christ’s purpose “to seek and to save what was lost” (Luke 19:10). It means we share Jesus’ perspective of humility and obedience (Philippians 2:5-8), compassion (Matthew 9:36), and prayerful dependence on God (Luke 5:16).

In the verses leading up to 1 Corinthians 2:16, we note some truths concerning the mind of Christ:

1) The mind of Christ stands in sharp contrast to the wisdom of man (verses 5-6).

2) The mind of Christ involves wisdom from God, once hidden but now revealed (verse 7).

3) The mind of Christ is given to believers through the Spirit of God (verses 10-12).

4) The mind of Christ cannot be understood by those without the Spirit (verse 14).

5) The mind of Christ gives believers discernment in spiritual matters (verse 15).

In order to have the mind of Christ, one must first have saving faith in Christ (John 1:121 John 5:12). After salvation, the believer lives a life under God’s influence. The Holy Spirit indwells and enlightens the believer, infusing him with wisdom—the mind of Christ. The believer bears a responsibility to yield to the Spirit’s leading (Ephesians 4:30) and to allow the Spirit to transform and renew his mind (Romans 12:1-2).

This Sunday at Church: Pray that the Sermon Would not be Watered Down

November 21, 2021 by SLIMJIM

For this Sunday here’s what you can do: Pray that the Sermon Would not be Watered Down.

Those who are pastors reading this I hope you don’t feel attacked (I’m a pastor too).  But this is something we should have our members pray about our preaching.  Even if you don’t shrink back from preaching God’s Word accurately and you do mention things like sin, hell, etc.  We can never have too many prayers about this!  And pray this too yourself!

For those who don’t preach and teach on Sunday, pray but also consider that this responsibility is not easy.  The Word of God has implications for every sphere of life and sometimes people don’t like what the implications are.  Or it’s not easy to speak the truth week after week without being discouraged.  I think in my immediate theological circle I think more likely pastors aren’t going to go on the deep end of preaching overt heresies but more likely they get discouraged that their church members don’t want to grow in solid and sound doctrines or deeper into the Word.  So they just decide to pour less time into the studies and less effort, for the effort and studies aren’t appreciated.  So begins the slide…

 I can imagine a few more other scenarios.  Fear of man.  Rabbit trails away from the Gospel.  But it is suffice to say for now this is worth praying about!
