It’s A Love Thing

Luke 10:27 ” And he answering said, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself.

 

Many today profess Christianity and live life based on God’s love for us. But the sign of a true Christian lies in living a life based on our love for God. Yes it is true God loves us, He loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son to die for us. But the question that needs to be answered is, do you love the Lord?

 

Here in our text a certain lawyer asked what he could do to inherit eternal life. The lawyer answered to love God with all thy heart soul and mind and love thy neighbor as thyself. Jesus told him he answered right. But we must understand what it actually means to love the Lord with all thy heart, soul and mind. That means to love Him more than anything else including our own life. We must love Him with our all holding nothing back. Love Him in our caring for one another. Loving Him in our sharing one with another. Love Him in our sacrificing for one another, we are to love Him in our giving and forgiving of one another. In this we have love for our neighbor as we esteem other more highly than we do ourselves. We love like Christ loved without respect of person.

 

When we truly begin to live our life based on our love for God, it is then we will began to love one another as Christ has loved us. Then we will present our bodies a living sacrifice. It is then we will deny our self daily take up our cross and follow Jesus.

Receive The Light

Job 24:13″They are of those that rebel against the light;they know not the ways thereof,nor abide in the paths thereof “.
The sins of the godly are magnified more because they are illuminated by the light to which they claim to have. “They are of those that rebel against the light”.Light is taken here figuratively for knowledge, it cannot be denied that the wicked sin knowingly; but the godly have a light which should destroy the darkness.
We have the light, which shows us the way of righteousness,  we must be careful not to rebell against that light and choose the path of darkness. We have a better eye to see sin than the wicked, and for us to mess around with sin, and embrace the darkness provokes God to anger. So we that are people of God, must flee from sin, our sins are more enhanced than those who are unsaved, because he who knows better should do better. Sins of ignorance are still sins, but the deliberate acts of known sin, and the willful neglect of known duty, are great acts of disloyalty. He who knew his Lord’s will and did it not was beaten with many stripes. If a man puts his hand in the fire knowing that it will burn, no one will have pity on him when he burns himself. When the ice is marked Dangerous the warning should be sufficient for any reasonable man. When the notice is repeated over and over at every corner and set up in great capitol letters, he who ventures on the rotten ice is not only a fool but also suicidal should he fall in.
The warning signs of the dangers of walking in darkness, and rebelling against the light are plastered everywhere, even planted in the heart of mankind, take heed that you in your folly don’t fall in and be cursed to everlasting damnation. Receive the light of life and live

Never Changing

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ; the same yesterday, today, and forever

 

Jesus Christ the same Yesterday; Gods spoken word, by which all things made was made, the spoken word by which Abraham believed and it was counted as Righteousness. Jesus Christ, the same today; the written word of God unchanged and uncensored, to rebuke, reprove, to correct and instruct us in righteous that we might be thoroughly furnished unto every good work. Written that we might believe on the only begotten of God.

 

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever; The living word of God , yesterday the ram in the bush, today the lamb of God who taketh away the sins of the world. Yesterday the way out of the fiery furnace, today the way out of the fires of eternal damnation. Yesterday Noah’s ark, today the savior of all who enters his rest. Yesterday manna from heaven today and forever more, the bread of heaven, yesterday the love of God, today the love from God to all who will believe.

 

Jesus died that we all might have everlasting life, but that life is promised only to those who will receive this precious gift from God.

The Proper Perspective

Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

 

The word says “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and these things shall be added unto you”. God has a “but” for everyone of our doubts and fears. God gave us everything we would need to live a peaceful abundant life when he gave us Jesus.

 

He says “seek ye first”; This has to be the first thing on our agenda, let him who is first have the first: The first of our thoughts, the first of our day, the first of all our fruits, let all our waking thoughts be of God first, In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy path. “seek ye first the kingdom of God” Let us truly seek him. Seek him like lost car keys, when we are about to be late to work. Turn over everything , move everything, move all things and people which might hinder you seeking and finding the kingdom of God. This action will bring you to a moment of self actualization, allowing you to see where you are, in contrast to where God needs you to be, if you truly seek him. He says” But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness” When seeking the kingdom, make sure you also seek the righteousness of that kingdom; Jesus the righteousness of God, seek him diligently for he is a rewarder of them who diligently seek him.

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto  you” When we put first things first, we can truly take no thought for the cares of this world. He said “all these things shall be added unto you” God promises us the things we have need of, but we must put first things first. Then we can rest in the peace of our Lord and savior who told us “Be of good cheer for  I have overcome the world”. When God gave us Jesus he truly supplied our every need.
