    Four Things to do With the Word of God

    -There are four things that we ought to do with the Word of God – admit it as the Word of God, commit it to our hearts and minds, submit to it, and transmit it to the world. WILLIAM WILBERFORCE

    2 Tim 3:14-15 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
    2 Tim 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
    Ps 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
    Ps 40:8 “I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart."
    Matt 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
    2 Tim 4:2-5 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
    Luke 8:14-15 "The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop."

    Paying too much for harmony and peace

    -We must never settle for harmony at the expense of holiness, nor for peace at the expense of principle. JOHN BRADFORD

    Ps 41:12 In my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever.
    2 Pet 3:14 So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.
    Deut 8:2 Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.
    1 Chr 29:17b I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity. . . .
    1 Pet 4:19 So then, those who suffer according to God's will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
    Prov 11:3 The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.
    Is 32:8 But the noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds he stands.
    Matt 12:36 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.
    Phil 1:27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel
    Matt 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
    1 Pet 2:12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
    2 Cor 8:21 For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.
    Titus 2:6-8 Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
    1 Tim 4:16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
    Rom 14:7 For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone.

    Making choices with tomorrow in mind

    -We are either the masters or victims of our attitudes. It is a matter of personal choice. Who we are today is the result of choices we made yesterday. Tomorrow, we will become what we choose today. To change means to choose change. JOHN MAXWELL

    Eph 5:15-16 Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
    Col 3:17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
    Luke 19:12-13 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. 13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

    Energy and persistence

    -Energy and persistence conquer all things. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
    -By perseverance the snail reached the ark. CHARLES H. SPURGEON

    Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
    Prov 24:16 for though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again, but the wicked are brought down by calamity.
    Gal 6:9-10 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
    Heb 10:35-36 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
    James 1:2-4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
    James 5:11 As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.
    2 Peter 1:5-7 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.
    2 Thes 3:5 May the Lord direct your hearts into God's love and Christ's perseverance.

    Shining for the Lord, even in the seemingly small things

    -Ah! If our likeness to God does not show itself in trifles, what is there left for it to show itself in? For our lives are all made up of trifles. The great things come three or four of them in the seventy years; the little ones every time the clock ticks. ALEXANDER MACLAREN

    Luke 19:17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
    Luke 16:10 Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
    Matt 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
    2 Cor 8:21 For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.
    Phil 1:27a Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. . . .
    Eph 5:1-2 Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

    Priorities: Acquisitions? or Actions?

    -Everywhere in life, the true question is not what we gain, but what we do. THOMAS CARLYLE

    Matt 16:27 “For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.”
    1 John 3:18 Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
    Matt 6:19-21 "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
    1 Tim 6:17-19 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
    2 Cor 5:9-10 So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
    Heb 6:9-10 Even though we speak like this, dear friends, we are confident of better things in your case--things that accompany salvation. 10 God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
    1 Cor 7:29-31 (Amp) I mean, brethren, the appointed time has been winding down and it has grown very short. From now on, let even those who have wives be as if they had none, And those who weep and mourn as though they were not weeping and mourning, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they did not possess anything, And those who deal with this world [overusing the enjoyments of this life] as though they were not absorbed by it and as if they had no dealings with it. For the outward form of this world (the present world order) is passing away.
    Rev 22:12 "Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done."

    The Bible: the ultimate guide by which to live and die

    -He who rejects the Bible has nothing to live by. Neither does he have anything to die by. GREG LAURIE

    Ps 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
    Ps 25:9 He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.
    Ps 25:4 Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
    Prov 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on our own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
    Ps 73:24 You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory.
    Ps 16:11 You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

    The shifting sands of moral relativism

    -When we forget God, we lose the only true basis for morality and ethics, and we are cast upon the shifting sands of moral relativism in which anything goes, including lying, cheating and stealing. JUDGE ROY MOORE

    Mal 3:6b For I am the LORD, I change not . . .
    Matt 7:24-27 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
    Rom 15:4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.
    Ps 119:18 Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.

    Shifting sands - no anchor.... makes me think how dependent we are on GPS.


    Does anyone know how to read a map? If your GPS went down, could you find your way back home?

    If all the pokemons suddenly disappeared, would life become meaningless..... OK I stretched that one, but it would have an effect on some.


    Likewise with out God; morality, truth, even life's purpose drift and disburse like smoke in the wind.

    And many of us are so dependent on others that our weakness in His Word causes much hardship when the winds and fiery trials hit us and cause us to stumble and even drift into despair.


    But Look! Yea Christians, there is LIGHT and a LIFELINE. Look to HIM, Hold Fast, for HE alone SAVES! AMEN!

    Keep us steadfast in Your Word Lord Jesus.
    It's ALL about Jesus. The Son of God - Emanuel - The Mighty God - Our Salvation.

    -One of the consequences of such notions as "entitlements" is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for being nice enough to grace us with their presence. THOMAS SOWELL

    2 Thes 3:10-12 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: "If a man will not work, he shall not eat." 11 We hear that some among you are idle. They are not busy; they are busybodies. 12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the bread they eat.
    Titus 3:14 Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order that they may provide for daily necessities and not live unproductive lives.
    Gal 6:5 for each one should carry his own load.

    Being a good example: actions speak louder than words

    -It is easier to preach ten sermons than it is to live one. UNK

    James 3:13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
    Matt 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
    1 John 3:18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
    James 1:22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
    2 Cor 8:21 For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.
    Prov 27:19 As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.
    Phil 1:27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. . . .
    1 Tim 4:16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
    Titus 2:6-8 Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
    Matt 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’”
    1 Pet 2:12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
    John 13:15 “I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.”
    Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

    Joining the Lord's Army

    -Dedication is writing your name on the bottom of a blank sheet of paper and handing it to the Lord for Him to fill in. RICK RENNER

    Eph 2:10 For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
    Phil 2:13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.
    Is 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"
    Matt 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
    2 Thes 1:11-12 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith. We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    God can even use those who don’t think they can serve

    -Moses spent forty years thinking he was somebody; forty years learning he was nobody; and forty years discovering what God can do with a nobody. D.L. MOODY

    Ex 4:10 Moses said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.”
    Zech 4:6 So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.”
    Ps 40:1-3 I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.
    1 Cor 1:26-29 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
    1 Cor 12:22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,
    2 Cor 12:9-10 But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
    John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

    Kind words, showing oneself friendly

    -Many a friendship--long, loyal, and self-sacrificing--rested at first upon no thicker a foundation than a kind word. FREDERICK W. FABER

    Prov 18:24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
    Prov 22:11 He who loves a pure heart and whose speech is gracious will have the king for his friend.
    Gal 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
    Col 3:12 Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

    Thank you, Lord, for the troubles I don’t have

    -Happiness comes when we stop complaining about the troubles we have and say thanks to God for the troubles we don’t have. UNK

    Ps 103:2 Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—
    Phil 4:11-13 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
    Ps 92:1 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord. . . .
    Ps 118:24 This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

    Happy with less

    -Someone else is happy with less than what you have. UNK

    Eccl 5:19-20 Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work--this is a gift of God. He seldom reflects on the days of his life, because God keeps him occupied with gladness of heart.
    Phil 4:11-13 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
    1 Tim 6:6-8 But godliness with contentment is great gain.7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.
    Heb 10:34 You sympathized with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions.
    1 Tim 6:17-19 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
    Matt 6:19-21 "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
    Heb 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."
    1 Cor 7:29-31 What I mean, brothers, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they had none; those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep; those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away.
    Col 3:2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
