Rom 6.6 +

Rom 6.6

“Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.”

“God’s name, God’s kingdom, God’s will,

must be the primary object of Christian prayer.”

– Dietrich Bonhoeffer

INDIVIDUALISM God is Absolutely Perfect! His knowledge is infinite. Understand that? Without being unkind, you do not. I do not. No human – even those gloriously beyond the grasp of satan or his devils – understand the limitless wisdom of our Father. He made every man different from every other man. God made every woman dissimilar from all other women. No man invented individualism. You are YOU. Rejoice in that. Give this YOU to Him & with His indwelling you, become even more YOU! – 1/3/23  

“To refuse to believe in the gospel

is the worst sin imaginable.”

– Dietrich Bonhoeffer


Jesus moved through His world on paths & trails

He road o’er Galilee via oars & strong sails

Only once was He known a burro to borrow.

He’s moved on the interstate in our day

And via internet until He’s told “nay.”

Limiting the Gospel brings untold sorrow.

HOBBY #3. eab has a practical streak in him – if you can, make your hobby a blessing to someone. That means it provides you with relaxation but also provides a PLUS in someone else’s life. If your hobby is reading, find the very best – AND I mean BEST – child’s book(s) & read to your grandchild or a friend’s child/grandchild. If your hobby is baking cookies give some to a poor family or a rescue mission. If you love woodworking, make prosthesis to be shipped abroad; a VA friend did this yrs ago. – 1/6/23

“The reformers…distinguished between personal suffering & those incurred by Christians…

bearers of an office…this distinction between person & office is wholly alien to the teaching of Jesus.”

– Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Recently I’ve seen pics of 2 people: both attended a Bible college, both were once in christian ministry, both are dead. When viewing the one I have reason to believe that soul is “…ever…with the Lord”(1Th 4.17) – I’m happy for them. The other pic gives heaviness. I fear, that soul is forever in hell. READER, you can still – in God’s great mercy – get right. Turn from your compromising. Come back to a Living Relationship with Christ. I don’t want sorrow (again) if/when I see your pic after you’re gone. – 1/9/23

Luk 16.23

“…In hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments & seeth

Abraham afar off & Lazarus in his bosom.”

God wants you to do ‘A’ ‘B’ ‘C’ ‘D.’ You understand most of ‘A’ & agree. You love doing ‘B’ (it suits you). You’re OK with ‘C’ (you’re not fond of it but you’re willing). But ‘D’ has you in full rebellion! “Why does the Lord insist on ‘D’ – – – no one I know HAS to do this.” Stop. Quickly. Go pray. Beg God to help you. The Loving Almighty wants you in heaven more than you want to go. He knows that ‘D’ will help get you ready to see Him in peace. Stop rebelling. He doesn’t accept partial obedience. – 1/9/23

“The genuine work of love

is always a hidden work.”

– Dietrich Bonhoeffer
