Timothy 3:16-17

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

**WHEN IN DOUBT CHECK GOD’S WORD! WE NEED TO BE LIKE THE BEREANS!**

Something to think about…

Have we been hushed to preach the Gospel in the manner that the Disciples of long ago did? Where in God’s Word does it say to stop sharing the Gospel in that manner? Or have we become frightened? Ashamed? Politically correct? In this day of a sea of social media do we just expect that people know The Good News?

Today may we proclaim the name of Jesus and His saving power to the check out person, the grocery bagger, someone at work. We should not let this world MUTE what our Lord has done for us and WILL do when called upon Him with a sincere heart! HE IS GOOD LIKE THAT!

HE SETS THE CAPTIVE FREE! I KNOW! I ONCE WAS  CAPTIVE! FREED BY THE GRACIOUS LOVING GOD THAT CREATED US TO WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH!

“Simplicity that is in Christ”

Good morning! As we rise and shine and head out into a world that tries to take away from the simplicity found in Jesus The Christ I pray in Jesus name that we not be “beguiled” as Eve was. We must not be fooled by satan as he transforms himself into an “angel of light” when truly we know he is NOT.  MAY WE SHINE THE TRUE LIGHT THE LORD HAS GIVEN US TO SHINE FOR HIS HONOR AND GLORY!  It is all about HIM. Not about us.

2 Corinthians 11:3-15

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

For I suppose I was not a whit behind the very chiefest apostles.

But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.

Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

I robbed other churches, taking wages of them, to do you service.

And when I was present with you, and wanted, I was chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied: and in all things I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and so will I keep myself.

10 As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia.

11 Wherefore? because I love you not? God knoweth.

12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we.

13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

“Be Still…”

Psalm 46:10
“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”
As the world swirls and whirls around us in disarray denying Jesus the Christ, we as His born again believers can be “still”-be calm. We can be “still” because we know Who God is. Remaining still by trusting in God in a decaying world is a testimony of THE ONE GREAT GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST ALONE. He alone is always the answer in “due time” so that we may share Him and help to calm those around us for His honor and glory.
~Amen
