The evil Pied Piper leads men to a sweet oblivion. Sending man to there death with all but a piece of bread of sorrow. God may crush, may wound, and may injury. For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole. Jesus was crushed for our iniquities and made us whole. He dealt harshly with our sins and crucified them on the Cross. For He inflicts pain, and gives relief; He wounds, and His hands also heal. We are healed by his stripes, the punishment tha
John the disciple was called the beloved one, the one whom Jesus loved. It was not that Jesus loved him more than the other disciples. It was that John was the only one who realized Jesus loved him so. All of disciples were loved by Jesus but John is the only one that truly knew it. Let us be disciples of Christ that know we are beloved by Him. Think about how knowing Jesus loves you can change your life! Like John resting on Jesus breast in conversation, so should we be in p
Show God you love him by loving your spouse. Loving your children, your neighbor or the stranger within thy gates. What a waste to have married the most beautiful spouse in the world or to have many children. To have many friends and acquaintances, and never loved any of them with the passion and fervor of the love of Christ. For many of our loved ones we are strangers within their hearts. Your greatest investments will be the people you pour the Love of Christ over beyond m
Take the time to celebrate the godly things in your life. Especially before the spirit of it loses it's significance to you. Time plus idleness has a way of losing sacredness to a thing. Our spirits can get so lazy in sin that we eventually won't lift a hand to feed ourselves spiritually. It's the sluggard that puts the fork in their food and then is to weary to bring it to their mouths. Lets take joy in the things that are holy and it will keep our hearts on fire daily. Stud
God wants to be in his rightful place of glory, in our hearts. On the Cross Jesus has done that. Like the Sun God dwells in an unapproachable light. The closer we get to him with our sin the more we are burned up in justice. The farther we stay away we become cold and die in our sins. Through the Gospel Jesus has become the Sun incarate and dwells in us. The problem still with mankind is their sinful heart. It keeps us from being in right relationship with the Sun of Righteou
The holy calling of Christ is unique in that all are called to come near to God. To come close to the consuming fire of relationship with Jesus. The fire of Holy Spirit burns hot against our sinful nature and will either bring you closer or farther away from God. We as Christians cannot force people to go near the consuming presence of God in Christ, only walk beside them and lead by example. He calls out to each one of us to come boldly and know the weighty presence of God.
Poachers will take a life if the price is right. There greed consumes them, the life of an animal is worthless to them. I compare the evil realm to these poachers. They abuse and condemn humanity because of their love for power and control. They are thrilled at the loss of life if the price is right, they want the souls of mankind. Their greed has blinded there reasoning, even bringing judgment upon themselves by the Cross. We are like sheep led to slaughter for a cosmic batt
You are having a great streak of righteous living. Guarding against unpure thoughts and keeping yourself unspotted from the world. So much so, that your old man, your old sinful nature is hanging on to dear life. Your old self is hanging off the edge of an eternal holy fire, the fire of the Holy Spirit. It flickers violently as the winnowing fork in Christ's hand clears the threshing floor. Gathering the good wheat in our hearts for his barn, and chaff is left in this unquenc
My Lord, my first love.
There's only you in my life, the only thing that's right. You're every breath that I take and you're every step I make. I want to share all my love with you Jesus, no one else will do, you know its true. And your eyes, when I gaze upon you in prayer tell me how much you care. You will always be my eternal love. Our two hearts beat as one, as my new life in Christ has just begun. And forever I will lift up my arms in praises to you, I can't resist your
