Psa 15.2 +

Psa 15.2

“He that walketh uprightly & worketh righteousness

& speaketh the truth in his heart”

 

“We are now becoming what we shall ever be–lovers of God & the things of God

or haters of God & the things of God.”

– Samuel               Brengle

 

It may interest you to see the words “vote” “votes” “voted” “voter” “voting” are not in the Bible. When the disciples were deciding who should take the place of Judas (Act 1.23 & 26) thy used lots (may or may not be “the same” – maybe similar to drawing straws or choosing a # between 1-10). When the disciples were deciding about the “deacons” (Act 6.3) the church was to “…look out…” 7 men whom the apostles could “appoint.” The modern church may rely too much on voting. – 1/6/20

 

“You’re kinda uncomfortable sharing what you have

‘casue you’re not sure you have it.”

– Albert Barr  

 

If you have become a believer in the exaggerations of this so-called “space age,” if you watch every science-fiction flick hollywood/disney reels out, if you can’t wait to the next product of S__ W__ or what may follow, I’d encourage you to draw back from such & join the real (not the reel) world. (Too much of the above are CGIs computer-generated images.) Work, enjoy the family, save money, pay bills, stay out of debt, live simply & if you name the name of Christ, Pray. These are the real world. – 1/12/20

 

Rejoice

This is a day to clap your hands and rejoice

To break forth in singing, to lift up your voice

For the Lord of lords and the King of all kings

Soon appears (on white horse) to rule all things

Ah, saint clap hands. Saint, again I say, “Rejoice.”

– eab, 8/20/15

 

Would you die for a country? Why? Would you die for Christ? Why? Your land (though you like it) didn’t birth you, nor can it eternally save you? Christ died to give you New Birth & He can redeem you from hell. Your land will be history – perhaps before a grandson dies an old man. Your Lord has an Eternal Kingdom: It’s here now, is growing, & will be forever. Don’t volunteer to die for a country. Don’t hesitate to die for the testimony of Christ. – 2/1/20

 

God’s Word contains the best evidence of its own inspiration.”

J Hudson Taylor

 

Joh 14.23

“Jesus answered…If a man love me, he will keep my words:

& my Father will love him & we will come unto him &make our abode with him.”

 

Don’t make jokes about God, spiritual things nor Scripture. Just this AM as I worked a little on memorizing Scripture I was reminded of a bad memory. While I was young I heard an older person repeat a “joke” which used a certain verse. I can seldom read or hear that verse without remembering that “joke.” It was not funny then & it surely is not funny now. It’s baggage I shouldn’t have had to carry these decades. Do not try to be funny at the expense of holy things. – 8/20/20

 

What the sunshine is to that flower,

the Lord Jesus is to my soul.

Alfred Lord Tennyson
