Fear The Lord

Prov 1_7

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7). What does it mean to fear the Lord? It does not mean to be afraid of Him. We are to revere God in humble submission to His will. To fear the Lord is the foundation of wisdom on which we must build our life upon. This fear of the Lord put a desire in our hearts not to sin and to live a life of holiness. There are those who do not fear the Lord and therefore despise His wisdom and instruction. Do you fear God? You can be sure that God is watching all that we do and he knows our thoughts and intents. Humbly submit your heart to God and fear Him.

Beautify With Salvation

Psa 149_4

For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.” (Psalm 149:4). When you humbled yourself and bowed before Christ and accepted Him as Lord and Savior, he did a wonderful thing. He beatified you with salvation. Every day when you spend time with Christ and moments in God’s Word, the Holy Spirit begins to change you and make you more like Christ. This change begins on the inside of your heart and moves outward that all may see His beauty. Jesus said; “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16). Can the world see the beauty of His salvation in you? Shine His Light today.

Walk As Light

Eph 5_8a

For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:” (Ephesians 5:8). We are encouraged in this verse to walk as children of light. Paul tells us we were darkness, not in darkness. When we receive Christ as our Lord and Savior we become light in the Lord. John wrote; “In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” (John 1:4-5). Undoubtedly, these believers were not walking as children of light because Paul had to remind them. As you go through your day, will you reflect the light of Christ? Walk as children of Light.

Have a Blessed Day!

Peace Of Christ

John 14_27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27). There are two words in this verse you need to understand. They are “Let not.” It means that you are in control of letting your heart be troubled. You can allow the problems of this world, to take away the peace that Jesus wants to give you. Many people rely on the peace of this world and try to find peace in possessions, work, or in religion. We can make it through this life regardless of the circumstances because Jesus can give us true peace. In Philippians 4:7 it is described as “which passeth all understanding.” Without a doubt, we cannot understand it, but we can believe it, and it is up to you to let not your heart be troubled. Trust in the Peace of Christ. It is a discipline that is well worth the effort.

Repentance

Jer 17_10A

I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings” (Jeremiah. 17:10). Do the deeds, or actions of other people cause you to wonder about their relationship to God. This verse reveals to us that we are an “open book” to God, absolutely nothing is hidden from His view. However, we are also told to repent of our sins. Peter wrote, “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9). Repentance is personal, no one can accomplish this for another. Thank God that He cares enough to search our heart, examine our mind and bring conviction when we need His forgiveness. Tell God “like it is.” He already knows your heart. He is just waiting for you and me to admit our need.

Have a Blessed Day!

Happy Father’s Day

Fathers Day

Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.” (Psalm 128:1-4). The man that reveres the Lord and walks in His ways has everything he needs. May God give you all a wonderful Father’s Day.

Have a Blessed Father’s Day!

The Real Beauty Of Jesus

Isa 53_5

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:3-5). Have you ever thought about the beauty of Jesus, what did He look like? We have many paintings of Christ, however, these portraits portray Jesus as the artist sees Him. The Scripture from Isaiah paints a different portrait, and it doesn’t sound very lovely. There wasn’t anything out of the ordinary about Christ. Jesus didn’t come earth to win a beauty contest, or to show off His muscles or His tanned body. He came to die! He came to be wounded for our transgressions, to be bruised for our iniquities. So, next time you examine a painting or picture of Christ, look beyond that and see the true beauty of Jesus at Calvary.

Have a Blessed Day!
