VerseD: John 7:38

“Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'”
John 7:38, ESV

Believing Jesus is Lord comes with the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit empowers and encourages us to share the truth of Christ with others.

This Sunday at Church: Pick Someone up for Church

I did not get to this before church, because … busy. Here it is now!
My wife and I used to pick up a widow for church, but then I started teaching a Church History class before our regular service. (I do occasionally give a ride home, though!) I have also been part of many life-giving ministries at other churches, for children all the way up to elderly.
Yes, it can sometimes be awkward, especially not knowing the person(s) getting a ride. But it gets easier. And you make new friends.
And it is part of our duty as the Church.

Daniel

2 Corinthians 4:18

as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:18, ESV

It is easy to get focused on the things of this world, but we are to look to the Kingdom of God. It is mostly insubstantial until Christ returns. Trust His promises that His Kingdom is growing and that He is coming again.

Matthew 7:1-2

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.”
Matthew 7:1‭-‬2, ESV

Jesus never said “never judge.” He warned to use good judgment, but realize you invite judgment from others.

Judge yourself first according to Scripture, then help others do the same.

We may walk away, but God never does from His people.

Revelation 2:1-7

“Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.” Revelation 2:4

Part 10. Wow. I hope readers don’t mind us really taking our time and poking around a bit. Actually, it really doesn’t matter, as that is what I am going to do anyway! Writing blog posts is as much for me as for readers; it is my way of studying. We might say, my blog posts are my study notes. So, part 10 it is.

So, here we are again. Ephesus: hard-working, doctrinally pure, yet they have left their “first love.”

Today, we are going to just poke around very briefly in the language of our verse and talk about the significance of some of it. I have said before, and I will say again; I am not a Greek scholar and have never studied it as a subject. That is great if…

VerseD: Psalm 91:2

I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Psalm 91:2, ESV

Do not try and live this life in your own strength. The Lord wants to help you with your struggles and problems, to make your Joy’s complete.

Trust in God. Dwell in His presence.

VerseD: Revelation 21:4

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
Revelation 21:4, ESV

God’s people, who trust in the Faithful One, shall find the end of suffering and loss when He renews Creation. We cannot fully comprehend the glory to come nor the bliss of God’s complete presence and peace in that Day.
