“As ye have therefore received Christ…”

Colossians 2:6-7

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

REST IN THE WORK HE HAS FINISHED FOR US – LETTING YOUR THANKFULNESS TO HIM-BECAUSE OF HIM-FLOW FROM YOU ❤️❤️❤️

The Good Lord has never told us to put up trees🌲 and bright lights💡, buy gifts 🎁, worship Him as a baby 👶 and ALL the STUFF we “do” to SUPPOSEDLY celebrate Him 😞 stressing ourselves and loved ones to the max 😞 AND honestly dis-obeying Him 😞

He says to REST in Him-obey Him- have faith in Him

*Jeremiah 6:16*

16 Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

*Luke 9:23*

23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

*Matthew 15:8-9*

8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY WE HAVE LEARNED AND KNOW AS CHRISTIANS THAT OUR GOD IS HOLY- HE CAN NOT BE TOUCHED AND WILL NOT EXCEPT OUR WORSHIP TO HIM THROUGH PAGAN/HEATHEN/SINFUL WAYS 😞 We can not christianize those ways to worship Him-CAN NOT!

I am sharing these things for the ABSOLUTE LOVE of God’s truth that God has given us to accept- follow- and be blessed ❤️

Why? Because God has given me the heart to love you and be honest, too – the truth costs- Jesus paid that price- it is our responsibility to share that and the truth will cost us, too- we must be willing to cut our worldly losses and know it will be worth it when we stand before our God our Judge and He says:

*Matthew 25:21*

21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

We are not worthy and how humbling is that verse?!? But that is God and His mercy and grace- we don’t have it all perfected and that’s ok but when the Holy Spirit convicts us it’s for a reason SPEAK UP IN LOVE-HIS LOVE ❤️

Just because…

… others aren’t giving God the glory doesn’t mean you can’t!

He is the reason for all good- spread THE WORD ❤️❤️❤️

Luke 9:26-27

26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.

27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.

Let God’s Word light the way for you.

Psalm 119:105

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

He will never lead us into darkness~He will lead us out of darkness and into His marvelous light! His light is forever burning~ FOREVER~ NO END~ AN ETERNITY!

There is only One Living God~ DO YOU KNOW HIM?

Best sermon I have ever heard describing Jesus was given by S.M. Lockridge you may read it hear:

WOW! JUST WOW!!!

“But God commandeth his love toward us…”

❤️❤️❤️

Romans 5:6-11

6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

Question/Biblical Answer

QUESTION: Does praying to/through “Mary” honor and give glory to the One TRUE God?

BIBLICAL ANSWER:ANo. Because God says we shall have no other gods before Him and He also says there is only ONE Mediator: JESUS CHRIST – He is the ONE that ransomed His life for all ❤️ Not a Mary- not a Buddha- not any Roman Catholic saint – on and on and on…

*Exodus 20:3

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (NOTICE THE PERIOD AFTER THIS COMMANDMENT? PERIOD-END)

*1 Timothy 2:5-6

5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

When we realize Who God is for us and what He has done for us we should want to be EXTREMELY mindful of who or what we put before Him and in His place. His PLACE is perfect where HE is – there is no one or anything else to put before Him or in His place ❤️❤️❤️

TRUTH-SEEK IT FOR YOUR OWN GOOD-FOR YOUR PEACE IN A CRAZY WORLD- AND FOR YOUR ETERNITY ❤️❤️❤️

The Longest Psalm

Psalm 119 touches on so many things but most importantly these Holy Spirit filled Words encourage us to stay close to God while the world twist-turns and crumbles around us! What AWESOME encouragement for us as the world marches on to its own beat – making it’s own ugly music- GOD IS GOOD ALL OF THE TIME -ALL OF THE TIME HE IS GOOD!

LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN THE MUSIC GOD PUTS IN OUR HEARTS FOR HIM SO WE MAY BE COMFORTED IN A REBELLIOUS WORLD 💕

(George Everard, “The Great Physician and His Patients” 1874)

“Those who are well have no need of a Physician, but those who are sick.” Luke 5:31

Our Great Physician possesses the most perfect skill to discern the peculiar needs of each case. He sees the working of all this sin and corruption and hardness of heart–and He can counteract it all by His all-sufficient grace. Before you have spoken a word, when you kneel down and cast yourself upon His mercy–He is prepared to forgive and save. Christ knows beforehand all that you are, and cannot fail to support His tempted or afflicted child.

In Christ there is not only Divine wisdom to discern every case of spiritual disease–but He also has Divine power completely to effect a cure. When He was upon earth, none were sent away unhealed. The blind and the lame, the deaf and…
