A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand
back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is
not easily broken. - Ecclesiastes 4:12
Brought out in the post “Shared Experiences” is the thought that we
are united with God through Christ who conquered death. We are a new person in
Christ with the purpose of serving a great God who has given us the help of a
body of believers. For atriple-braided cord is not easily
broken just in the scripture above points out.
We can feed each other Spiritual
food for the soul to fulfill God’s purpose. There is no need to worry or
nothing to fear for we are free to be the person God wants us to be. As in the
song How Great is Our God by Chris
Tomlin, we can rejoice in our future together as we use our individual
strengths for His great purpose.
Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. - 2
Explained in the post “From Death to Life” is how the pattern of
sin and death was broken by the free gift of Christ. The grace of God and the
gift of righteousness reigns in life eternal. There’s no better deal in the
world. To me, it makes good sense to take it.
Everyone needs God’s grace. Once
received, one can gain wisdom to live the way life is meant to be lived. As the
main point given to us in the songDear Younger Me by MercyMe, our
tomorrows can be better than our yesterdays and today can be amazing because
our growing faith can never be taken away or depleted. The Gospel message has a
beautiful and refreshing simplicity about it that sets us free and never let us
I will sing of the Lord's great love forever; with my mouth I will make
your faithfulness known through all generations. - Psalm 89:1
This day with God, receive the
peace Christ has provided. Express your joy for God’s love to you by
persevering, building character, and maintaining hope.
Just as in the song I Am Free by Newsboys, each day can be
amazing because we can live out loud. We can pray, listen for instructions, and
get things done now. Opportunities to do great things are right in front of us
so let’s go out and give God our best.
Jesus replied, “What is impossible with men is possible with God”. - Luke 18:27
The Cross has made you flawless
and with God, you can passionately believe in what you are doing, let nothing
hold you up in your work, and know that one day at a time the impossible will
Within the post “The Promise”, highlighted was how Abraham
maintained hope, believed in God’s power to fulfill the promise of a son. Even
though he and Sarah had tried before and were beyond the childbearing years,
Abraham had faith in God to fulfill the promise. Abraham’s faith was very strong
and he passionately believed in God’s ability to make the impossible possible.
The result was that a child was born and Abraham ultimately became the father
of many nations.
As in the song Greater by MercyMe, bring your doubts
and fears to God. Bring your hurts and your tears to Him because greater is the
ONE living inside you. The cross has made it possible.
Teach us to number our days aright. That we may gain a heart of wisdom.
- Psalms 90:12
Explained by Paul in the post “Right Standing”, Abraham could not boast
before God or claim his due because it was by faith and not by works that God
did amazing things through him. The priority was more faith because it is
etched eternally into God’s account. What if instead of working at building up
an account like a bank account or a 401K account, we used more of our time to
build up kingdom wealth.
Faith is like uncut diamonds
that are improved and made into bright gems for a useful life. One way to build
up this eternal faith account is to capture thoughts from sermons or Bible
Study, and from experiences that we go through or those we know go through.
Another way to build up eternal faith is gathering inspiration from music or
photos just like this one: Oceans (Where
Feet May Fail) – Hillsong United.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ
lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of
God, who loved me and gave himself for me. - Galatians 2:20
As pointed out in the post “Way to Righteousness”, legal obedience does
not make one acceptable to God but faith in Jesus Christ does and this is God’s
way of righteousness.
For all have sinned and fall
short of the glory of God but can be justified freely by grace. Not by works
but by faith in Christ. As in this song Embrace
the Cross by Steve Green, let us replace every doubt or fear with a deep
abiding trust in Jesus.
Let us, then, feel very sure that we can come before God’s throne where
there is grace. There we can receive mercy and grace to help us when we need
it. - Hebrews 4:16
In the post “Purpose of the Law”, brought out is the fact
that it is impossible to be justified before God by our own efforts because no
one is perfect. I remember from a sermon at the church I worship at the
The Journey with Jesus begins with a decision (MK 1:16-17), with
leaving the familiar (MK 1:12-20), with Jesus saying lets go, with a change in
view (MK 1:17) and in following the real Jesus (Ac 9:10-11).*
The things that hinder us many
times are self-inflicted. There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman called “Dive”
that inspires us to take some risk when it comes to finding what’s important in
life. The Journey with Jesus requires that we dive right in and start the
continual change process by following His Way.
