1Pe 1.16 +

1Pe 1.16

“…Be ye holy; for I am holy.”

 

* TRINITY * (7.)

2Co 13.14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ & the love of God & the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all…

 

“God wants the church to be a perfect contrast to the world.”

– Beverly Carridine, /Church Entertainments/

 

What “expression” is likely to come out of *your* mouth 1.) when verifying a truth? 2.) when surprised? 3.) when aggravated? Is it biblical? “What do you mean, is it biblical?” Jesus said, “…Let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay;” He continued, “…whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil” (Mat 5.37). Just saw a definition, “heck…[euphemistic alter. of hell]” – Random House College Dictionary.

Pout Out

God can take out,

The carnal pout,

(The rest of us

Wish He would).

And in its place,

Put His great grace,

So you see things

As you should.

Rev 21.16

“And the city lieth foursquare & the length is as large as the breadth & he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length & the breadth & the height of it are equal.”

 

Remember the teeter-tooter? You sat face to face (seeing each other’s delight as you went up & down. You conversed. You laughed. Decided to see if you could balance. Or your companion was bigger/smaller one of you scooted toward the middle so it would “work.” In prayer this AM (excuse the comparison if you deem it out-of-place) I thought of teeter-tootering with God. Spiritually seeing Him face to face, Conversing. Enjoying His company. Then I realized He, in His Majesty & Might would have to move all the way to the pivot point. Nay, He’d have to come over on my side (helping me push down) or we couldn’t do this. Yet He’s willing to come to our aid. (He helps us pray!) How wonderful to be with God.

“It’s an insult to the intelligence of young people to give them the impression you have to cheapen the Gospel to make it understandable. The medical schools do not simplify their phraseology to please this set. The legal profession hasn’t changed its terminology.”

– Vance Havner, /OnThisRock/

 

The plumb bulb is a builder’s friend. The level is an equally good friend. The master carpenter, brick mason, etc. is not angry with his “friends” when they tell him the truth. O dear colleague, be not angry with the plumb bulb & level of God’s Holy Book. The New Jerusalem will be a perfect “Cube” (Rev 21.16) – God is wanting to “square you up” to fit you there.
