Mar 12.17

“Jesus…said…Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s

and to God the things that are God’s.”

 

God doesn’t want (or truly “need”) that which has Caesar’s image. What He wants is us (made in His image) & sons/daughters (His image). Money is replaceable. It’s a means of exchange. Misguided men crave money, think they need more than they do, & fall in love with it. Some will kill a human to have money. Rather, let us kill the desire for money, in order to love humans.

“The very essence of sin is pride…”

– George               Shaw, /Spirit in Redemption/

 

Retired? Congratulations. If Christ isn’t paramount in life you’re tendency may be to fish/hunt more, eat-out more, & do more hobbies. None are wrong & God may allow you (even when He IS paramount) to enjoy these, with limitations. When you worked at factory, store or taught, you were away hours & couldn’t study the Bible as you wished – Now you can. You can double, triple the time you give to the Classic of all classics. Do a serious study with notes on paper or on computer. Share with others as God opens the door.

IMMENSE

God’s salvation plan is immense,

His redemptive love is intense,

Soon eternity will commence

Stop, hypocrite, trying to ride the fence.

1Pe 4.7

“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.”

 

Retired? Happy for you. Perhaps you traveled for a living & are happy to be home. Or you’ve looked forward to retirement to trek more. Be careful & enjoy it. Allow me to suggest a “travel” which is less costly in dollars but takes time. Journey the earth via prayer. Evangelists across earth would love to have you “visit their country” in prayer once-a-week through your prayer list. This is not plane travel – this is prayer travel or if you like, Prayer Travail. You can visit more than one country in an hour of prayer J

“Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully

as when they do it from religious conviction.”

– Blaise Pascal

 

You have a Free Will. The fact that you deny you have a Free Will is an act of your will. If you have no Free Will than ultimately (right before death) you can blame God that you’re dying out of fellowship with Him. The great sin (perhaps the greatest sin) of denying that you chose to “Perish” (& thus not have “Life” – words fr. Joh 3.16) is you ending up making God responsible for your damnation. How unfair! Man’s foolish little theology (a lot of theology is earthy & won’t be seen in Heaven or hell IMO) is trying to ignore that God gave His Son.
