WALK IT OUT
It’s funny, but not really, when people say “don’t judge me”. Hello, people wake up before it’s too late! Sin is sin. Right is right. Wrong is wrong. Gossiping is sin. Backbiting is sin. Fornication , murder, adultery, theft, homosexuality, etc. is sin. Don’t get an attittude with others who are trying to help you so that YOUR soul won’t be lost if they tell you the word of God on a subject. It is written… Enough said. No arguments. No belittling. No excuses. No casting stones. It is not our place to enforce punishment, but simply to warn. It is written… By the way, to judge is to evaluate and determine that someone is going to heaven or hell. That my friend, is between you and God. He alone knows your standing with Him. He alone knows your motives and your heart. He alone knows the beginning from the end. However, we must ALL strive daily to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling, and still care enough about those around us to sound the alarm if it appears someone is headed the wrong way. That’s called love. That’s called being our brother (or sisters) keeper. It’s up to the listener to hear and obey or choose to go another way. The choice is yours. The choice is mine, but in the end we each will receive a just reward for those choices. Let’s choose wisely, and serve the Lord with fear and gladness! Sin leads to death, but praise God for knowing there is a way of escape for each of us. Jesus! What can wash away my sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
STAND ON THE WORD
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.
19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
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.
17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.
WALK IT OUT
In this life I’ve had to endure heartaches, pain, loss, disappointments, sickness, betrayals a plenty. However, as I look back and see all God’s brought me through I realize those things I thought were sent to tear me down were actually building me up for such a time as this!! I’m wiser. I’m stronger. To God be the glory!! Somebody shout, “Hallelujah”, and give God the praise!!
STAND ON THE WORD
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Seek the Lord while He may be found. Early shall I seek Him! My soul thirsts for Him! Is this your hearts cry on today? Seek the Lord while He may be found. He’s waiting to hear from you. Call on Him, and He will hear! Cry out to Him, and He will answer!
The Lord is doing a new thing in our lives!
The Lord is doing a new thing in our homes!
The Lord is doing a new thing in our churches!
The Lord is doing a new thing in our marriages!
The Lord is doing a new thing in our families!
The Lord is doing a new thing in our children!
The Lord is doing a new thing in our spouses!
The Lord is doing a new thing on our jobs!
The Lord is doing a new thing in our communities!
The Lord is doing a new thing in our schools!
The Lord is doing a new thing in me and a new thing in you!
He’s doing a new thing!
I believe it and receive it!
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!
STAND ON THE WORD
19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
20 The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.
21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.
No matter your situation or circumstance don’t give in and don’t give up if you are a child of God!!! Keep the faith knowing that even if it doesn’t feel good to you (in the flesh) it is still working for your good and is good for you (in the spirit)!!! Stop looking at things with your natural eyes and judging, instead walk in the spirit. Change your perspective!! Trials may hurt, but they teach you humility, cause you to be more sympathetic and empathetic to those round about you, and draw you to your knees and ultimately to the feet of our Lord. Don’t get bitter instead allow your cross to make you better. Trust God. Keep the faith. It’s working for your good!!! God can and will do exceedingly, abundantly more than you can ever ask or think if you let Him!!!!
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.
1Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
It’s working for my good!! It’s working for your good!!! All for his purpose and glory!!! Trust Him!!!
Stand On The Word
1 John 2:1-6
1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
Walk It Out
1. Your life should prove you are a Christian in word and deed.
2. You should be a reflection of your heavenly Father. Others should see Him in you!
3. Live a holy and separated life unto the Lord. Repent quickly if you mess up, and give God thanks for His mercy and grace through the sacrifice of Jesus.
The day is almost over and you may be waiting on your answer still, but don’t give in to fear, doubt, and frustration. Go and pray some more! What you need God’s got it! Seek Him!
