I opened my Bible this morning to the book of Proverbs and I find these words: “Happy is the man who is always reverent, But he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity” (Proverbs 28:14). What is this talking about? What is this secret of happiness? What does it mean to be reverent? What […]
Of course there is a lot in the teaching of Jesus about the big subject of salvation, but I am especially concerned with the things Jesus taught regarding the CONDITIONS God lays down for those who are going to be ultimately saved. If a thousand men teach me that there is no reason to fear the loss of my salvation if I am spiritually lazy and religiously compromised, but Jesus tells me the opposite – then I would be wiser to take heed to what Jesus said, right? After all, HE is the One I will have to stand before, probably in less than 30 years from now at the latest.
I scurried around the kitchen taking care of my children’s hunger while worshipping along with the music on my laptop. Suddenly I had to come to a dead halt, not knowing that MY “hunger” would be met that afternoon. Leaning onto my elbows on the counter, eyes shut ~ the One being worshipped reached down to touch me: depositing into me the only way to feed my longing to know Him more intimately.

We have to live by faith in God.
Romans 1:17, “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.”
James 1:19 let every man
be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath, for the Wrath of man does not
produce the righteousness of God
James 1:5 If any of you
lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally And without reproach,
and it will be given to him.
God is Lord of all and all things belong to Him.
‘The LORD of hosts, Him you shall hallow;
Let Him be your fear
And let Him be your dread’
Professing Christians that have time for television but no time for God’s Word are idolaters. Don’t be one of them!
Please consider the following Scripture:
One of the most interesting and controversial passages anywhere in the
Bible comes straight out of the mouth of Jesus Christ, and is recorded
for us in Matthew 7:21-23:
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter
the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied
in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your
name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart
from Me, you who practice lawlessness!
