YOU MAY NOT BE LOVE BY OTHERS. BUT YOU ARE SURELY LOVE BY GOD
Luke 16:9-12 (NIV) (from Life Application Bible)
9 I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.
10 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. 11 So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? 12 And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own?
16:9 – WE ARE TO MAKE WISE USE OF THE FINANCIAL OPPTUNITIES WE HAVE, NOT TO EARN HEAVEN, BUT SO THAT HEAVEN (“ETERNAL DWELLING”) WILL BE A WELCOME EXPERIENCE FOR THOSE WE HELP. IF WE USE OUR MONEY TO HELP THOSE IN NEED OR TO HELP OTHERS FIND CHRIST, OUR EARTHLY INVESTMENT WILL BRING ETERNAL BENEFIT. WHEN WE OBEY GOD’S WILL, THE UNSELFISH USE OF POSSESSIONS WILL FOLLOW….
16:10-12, OUR INTEGRITY OFTHEN MEETS ITS MATCH IN MONEY MATTERS. GOD CALLS US TO BE HONEST EVEN IN SMALL DETAILS WE COULD EASILY RATIONALIZE AWAY. HEAVEN’S ERICHES ARE FAR MORE VALUABLE THAN EARTHLY WEALTH. BUT IF WE ARE NOT TRUSTWORTHY WITH OUR MONEY HERE (NO MATTER HOW MUCH OR HOW LITTLE WE HAVE), WE WILL BE UNFIT TO HANDLE THE VAST RICHES OF GOD’S KINDGOM. DON’T LET YOUR INTEGRITY SLIP IN SMALL MATTERS, AND IT WILL NOT FAIL YOU IN CRUCIAL DECISIONS EITHER.
Acts 16:31 (NIV)
31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.”
Meaning – When we recognize Jesus as Lord and trust in him with our entire life, salvation is assured to us. If you never trusted in Jesus to save you, do so quickly. Your life can be filled with joy.
(meaning from the Life Application Bible)
Matthew 5:22 (NIV) (Life Application Bible)
22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister, and says “You fool!” will be in danger of the fire of hell.
(meaning is coming from my Life Application Bible)
Meaning – Anger keeps us from developing a spirit pleasing to God. Have you ever been proud that you didn’t strike out and say what was really on your mind? Self-control is good, but Christ wants us to practice thought-control as well. Jesus said that we will beheld accountable even for our attitudes.
MY DEAR FRIENDS…… I HAVEN’T BEEN ON HERE IN A VERY LONG TIME. BEEN DEALING WITH MY LEG. BUT TODAY I WAS ABLE TO WALK WITH A BASKET IN STATER BROS. BUT I WANTED YOU TO KNOW THAT I WILL BE SHARING SOMETHING NEW. INSTEAD OF WRITING MESSAGES FOR GOD, I WILL BE SHARING BIBLE VERSES AND THEIR MEANINGS FROM MY LIFE APPLICATION BIBLE. I HOPE EVERYONE ENJOYS IT.
Psalm 119:105 (NIV)
Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path.
Meaning – To walk safely in the woods at night we need a light so we don’t trip over tree roots or fall into holes. In this life, we walk through a dark forest of evil. But the Bible can be our light to show us the way ahead so we won’t stumble as we walk. It reveals the entangling roots of false values and philosophies. Study your Bible so you will be able to see your way clear enough to stay on the right path.
(out of my life Application Study Bible)
Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Each of us are God’s handiwork, so it doesn’t matter what you do as long as it is pleasing to God. Cause He knew in advance what you were going to do, before you even did it.
I never knew I was going to be a writer, but God knew. I am doing His good works by writing what the Holy Spirit speaks to me and passing it on to you.
Mark 5:19 (NIV)
19 Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.”
If you don’t know what your calling is, that is ok. God will speak to you. Maybe its just to be a mother teaching your children about Jesus Christ, that is a job in itself. It took me a long time to find my calling but I did. An you will too, whatever it maybe.
John 14:12 (NIV)
12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
We all believe we can help spread the word like Jesus Christ, but there are many who don’t believe, that is why it so so important we do God’s works so they have a chance to believe.
Romans 15:17 (NIV)
17 Therefore I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to God.
I look forward to writing my messages every week for you to read. To me that is my service to God.
“God CANNOT Lie”
Hebrews 6:17-18 (NIV)
17 Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. 18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.
So you know by what this verse is saying, that God cannot lie, and everything He says in the bible is the truth. That can bring encouragement to anyone.
Numbers 23:19 (NIV)
19 God is not human, that he should lie,
not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?
When you pray and ask God for something, doesn’t he always answer yes, no, and not now. There is a reason why he has to say no, and not now, cause its not your time to have what you want. But God always provides for His Children.
1 John 1:10 (NIV)
10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.
God cannot lie, so why would we lie about sinning. We want His word to always be in us.
Titus 1:1-2 (NIV)
1 Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ to further the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness— 2 in the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time.
An like Paul, we are servant’s of God, spreading the knowledge of Jesus Christ. We want people to know there is eternal life after death. All they have to do is believe and except Our Lord Jesus Christ as Our Savior.
Psalm 119:105 (ESV)
Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.
In today’s world, there are so many ways to spread the God’s Word. You now have lots of different social media like facebook, and twitter.
Plus, when you need to look up God’s word, and you don’t have the Bible handy all you have to do is go on the internet. How easy is that.
James 1:22 (NIV)
22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
God’s word may be hard to take sometimes, but he know what is best for us, and even though the Bible was written a long time ago, there are newer versions to make it easier to understand and follow.
Matthew 7:24 (NIV)
The Wise and Foolish Builders
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
So lets all listen to God’s word, and put His word in to practice and share them with anyone who will listen. Lets be the one’s getting God’s Word out to people who don’t know Him.
Psalm 119:130 (NIV)
130 The unfolding of your words gives light;
it gives understanding to the simple.
You may not know that you are reaching someone, but even the kindest of words, can help.
John 15:7 (NIV)
7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
So keep on spreading the God’s word for him, keep his words in you so when someone asks you’ll have the answer. This will make God very happy. An He will surprise you with something that you ask for. I don’t know when, cause God in not on a clock, but when the timing is right, you will know it.
GOD’S WORD IS A BLESSING TO EVERYONE!
