1Th 5.17

“Pray without ceasing.”

 

Our farmer/ranger forefathers could pray as they did farm chores (morning & night), as they worked the horses or JD, as they repaired equipment & fence. Pigs, plants, posts didn’t mind that he talked to his Master & theirs. Have we lost our sense of praying through-out the day? You may not be a farmer/prayer but try praying as you do what you DO. Live where you have instant access (by grace) to the Father.

“Perfect love does not imply perfect knowledge; but perfect humility

and perfect readiness to receive instruction.”

– John Fletcher, /Works 2/

 

If you’re heading to a marriage altar, Please have honest discussions about D&R (divorce & remarriage). It’s unfair of you – I mean this strongly – to have a secret belief that D&R is OK & your husband/wife-to-be, has no idea you’re soft here. Let them know that “given the right (wrong?) circumstances” you’ll feel free to leave (divorce) them & marry another. They may not believe in D&R. They’ll not only be heart-broken that you left, but will see themselves “imprisoned” for life in celebrity. The only fair thing to do is discuss this NOW. I’m praying for 6-7 young men who are trying to live celibate after “she” took off. Be fair!

PRAYER, PREPARE

“A call to preach is a call to prepare.”

Is used by a college to get you to come there.

Preparation must involve the Big Book

(It may include a classroom nook)

But a greater part is in the closet of prayer.

Mar 10.9

“What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

 

Good parents want to protect their child in the womb. They strive to protect in the innocency of childhood. A good dad, a good mom endeavors to protect daughters (& sons) virginity. All stages are super important. Don’t allow sinful peers, putrid society, or “sinning” pastors weaken your walls of protection! “Times have changed” but the sanctity of sex ONLY after marriage is still Biblical. Protect their future home.

“The Shunammite woman didn’t say, ‘I perceive that this is a famous man of God

or popular or brilliant or successful man of God.’ She said a ‘holy’ man of God.”

– Vance Havner, /On This Rock/

 

The devils (& those in league with him) have impressed sinners with big numbers. (Sadly some saints were also impressed.) God made “…heaven…earth…sea…” (Exo 20.11) in six days – He didn’t “need” the millions of years Darwin & ilk did. Nor did God need the billions of miles Copernicus, Galileo & Newton did – He made “…the greater light…lesser light…stars also” (Gen 1.16) on Day Four. Big numbers bolster pseudo science NOT God.
