Psa 139.14 +

Psa 139.14

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…”

 

One of the greatest qualities with which man is blessed by his Creator is the sense of right & wrong. How many times we’ve sensed: “That doesn’t look right.” “Something doesn’t sound right.” “It doesn’t taste right.” “It doesn’t smell good.” “I don’t have a good feeling about it.” God gives these built-in-guides to saints & sinners as a part of basic humanity. Harken to them. – eab, 6/21/18

 

“The New Testament has no meaning if Jesus is anything less than a Savior.”

– Samuel Chadwick

 

What’s your view of sin? Is it the view of Dad? (More than you think?) Is it the view of your Heavenly Father? A Christian’s view should match (as we’re capable) God’s view. Don’t tolerate sin in your life. Don’t tolerate sin in church leadership. If after prayer (& perhaps fasting) you still see sin accepted in church leadership it may be time to change houses of worship (not said lightly but sincerely). God won’t bless your life or church if sin is tolerated. (False “blessings” & worked-up-emotions are not from God.)

CALM

God is God & has been

Since the world got its start.

He will be God after heaven

And all earth depart.

God is God in the fleeting moment,

We whimsically call “now,”

From the sea’s lonely shore

To the mountain’s mighty brow.

Let such limitlessness, agelessness

Give you an exceeding calm.

Rest, Child, in the hollow of

His lovingly immense palm.

Joh 14.30

“Hereafter I will not talk much with you:

for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”

 

Eternity is a big “E” – earth is a small “e.” earth (all we’ve known so far) is but a stepping-stone to the big “E.” The devil “…prince of this world” (Joh 16.11), wants us so fascinated by earth (satan doesn’t mind if you like “good” things as long as they keep you from the Best) that we spend a life-time chasing bubbles & ignore the big “E.” Don’t.

“…The more we conform to his will, the more we act according to his wisdom

and imitate his goodness, by so much the more do we enjoy God…”

– Wm Law, /Serious Call…/

 

The body is “king” in the fields of sports, as it walks/runs/jumps/twists/pushes its “animal” power.

The mind is “king” in the fields of academia as it spouts facts/figures/philosophies in brain power.

Both are usurpers, knaves acting as kings. They are pretenders to the throne of a man. The Soul is the better “king.” If properly instructed & gracefully lead the Soul deserves to be “king” – under the Heavenly King.
