1Pe 1.15 +

1Pe 1.15

“But as he which hath called you is holy,

so be ye holy in all manner of conversation”

“…I have been among Episcopalians, Congregationalists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Baptists & members of many other denominations & I have found that no amount of baptismal water can keep the devil out of the hearts & lives of Christians.”  

– Jonathan Goforth

“…Having food & raiment let us be therewith content”(1Ti 6.8). Paul was not “into” wearing clothing with labels showing – – – nor dear sanctified soul, should you be. In the holiness movement (too many women & sadly, even some men) are too conscious of their outfit, their shoes, their accessories being *In Style.* A person too concerned about outward impression is often not filled with the Holy Ghost. – 9/29/21  

“Surely, since the sinless Son of God had to be made sin for us

an over‑emphasis upon sin is in the nature of things impossible.”

– Jonathan Goforth

Teach your son, Dad, how to be a man. Not with onezy, twozy, threezy necessarily but by daily example. Dress like a man (not in stuff that could be either sex). Walk like a man (not in steps that look feminine). Stand like a man with both legs straight at the knee unless purposely kneeling. Talk like a man avoiding any sound that’s womanish. Talk about manly subjects, not that which borders on a lady world. And show your son how to treat a woman with love as you treat his mother & sisters. Blessings – 9/30/21

CHURCH

A certain kind of people

Meeting under a tall steeple

Imagine that that’s the church.

Tall walls do not a church make.

New birth is more than a handshake;

Which these find out when in a lurch.

The church is made of redeemed hearts,

And though they meet in various parts,

Under clear sky, under a huge tree;

Worship, that’s why we gather

Even in cold, wet weather.

Church is you and me.

“Practice” is not in Bible or “practiced,” “practicing” (suggests dead repetition). The man who suggested practicing to get into God’s presence was a ritualist. No, Friend. I hope you prayed yesterday – & hope you sensed God’s presence as you “conversed” with Him. Hope you talked to God this AM – & hope your time with Him was different from yesterday – it should’ve been. (God is not “samish.”). Go tomorrow to your place of prayer & as you pray expect yet an other “experience.” He’s a God of infinite variety. – 9/30/21
 

“If one does not believe in the eradication of sin in the heart

he does not believe in holiness.”

– R T Williams

Joh 13.35

“By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples,

if ye have love one to another.”

You’ve noticed the new pastor isn’t calling in homes – not new visitors, not regular people (including you), not “cold-turkey.” What to do? 1.) Pray before you do anything, 2.) If after prayer you feel clear, make an appointment & ask him about this. 3.) Be prepared in the discussion time to offer a.) to go calling with him b.) to come to the church & pray for him as he goes calling. 4. If you refuses to agree that he SHOULD call, be careful what you say to him. Start praying for a pastor who likes people. – 9/30/21  

“It is quite easy

to change one’s theory to suit his experience!”
– R T Williams
