Luk 14.33 +

Luk 14.33

“So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh

not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

“…Seize the one truth which the parable is intended to set forth…& let the parts

of the parable that are explained be explained in harmony with this one truth.

– Samuel Green

The “new” item ages & turns “old.” This law of chronology has been acting since Adam. It’s almost without exception. But – hear it, BUT God makes a most Notable change at the Birth, Death, & Resurrection of Christ. Jesus Christ is followed by many things New. In fact after a list which includes NEW bottles, cloth, commandment, covenant, creature, doctrine, earth, garment, heaven (& heavens), Jerusalem, lump, man, name, sepulcher, song, Testament, tomb, tongues, way, & wine, God says, “Behold, I make all things NEW (Rev 21.5). In order to enjoy these, YOU need the NEW BIRTH. – 7/17/22

I am sure that when Christ made doors & windows

in Nazareth they did not jam & misfit.”

Much of the days of a working man

Are spent fulfilling another’s plan

Make sure your “free time”

Is spent for God and family’s use, sublime.

Don’t spend your life removing dust,

It simply falls again.

Spend it – turning daughters into ladies

And sons into stalwart men.

WEED EATER. 1. The physical “weed eater” is a relatively new invention. It (if handled by an experienced lawn-man) can make a place look nifty, in – a – jiffy. Weeds, unwanted grass, even small “starts” of a shrub/tree are leveled to the ground. Gone. – – – Or are they? No, because next mowing time they have to be “mowed down” again. The tops were cut off but the root stayed. Neatness was only until the shoot shot back up again. – 7/21/22 

“Never say ‘Will you accept Christ as Lord?’ but ‘When will you accept Christ as Lord?’

 > every knee WILL bow < ALL will accept but some too late.”

– Vance  Havner

WEED EATER. 2. The Spiritual “weed eater” is as old has man’s religions. Reform comes & the top of sin is cut off. People look better, feel better, talk better with the weeds gone. But the weeds return. Some confess their sins (as I understand) every Saturday. Some (I hear) ask God to forgive them every night for that day’s sins. God, my friend, wants to pull out the root of that weed. His plan is not a weed eater – He wants you to live ABOVE sin. He can remove the root of bitterness. Let Him. – 7/20/22

Heb 12.15

“Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God;

lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you & thereby many be defiled.”

There is no such thing as a lazy Christian. Granted, we have different levels of energy, different back- grounds (ideas & ways of working), different speeds, but it will take manhood/womanhood on our part to get to heaven. Any sluggish bum can go to hell – basically all one has to do is  n.o.t.h.i.n.g. If your parents failed to teach you motivation; I’m sorry. But you can take “hold of your own collar” & make yourself DO what you *know* is right. Please Sir, Please Ma’am, become active in Christ. – 7/21/22
