It is only through Jesus, our merciful God and Savior, that we can escape from His anger. So, since He is offering to save you from the punishment of sin, kindly accept it. It comes with suffering, just as Christ did, but it’s worth it!
Since God chose you for salvation, do you realize you are special in the eyes of God? You are special because there are countless people in this world, and God chose to save you! So, have a wonderful day because God chose you to be saved; it is exciting news!
So, is your name in the Lamb’s Book of Life? Actually, the better question for a child of God is, “Is your name STILL in the Lamb’s Book of Life?” I say “still” because it is possible to be removed from His Book.
Jesus, our Lord, suffered in your place. The end result is the opportunity to enjoy the advantages of a healthy relationship with God. Therefore, keep in mind that Jesus suffered death to make you right with God!
One thing I am sure of, friends and family or feeling security from a career or job offer temporary happiness (see Ecclesiastes 2:1-11, 6:1-12). However, in order to find lasting happiness, “then I will go to the altar of God, to God who is the source of my happiness.”
It’s time to “wake up church”. Your eternal status is at risk. This Bible snack is unique since it presents a few disputed topics and links to STM articles that address the topics. So much of what you hear is traditional or denominational teaching or preaching. I call it pass-it-down preaching. Please understand that I am not attempting to offend anyone; I am simply telling the truth as I am led to do.
The Lord has corrected me, and I am thankful that He cared enough to do so. Our viewpoint on this subject is meaningless. “What do you think?” Is this a question that God has posed to any of us? I accept the Lord’s correction (chastening; discipline) as a child of God and put my trust in Him to act in my best interests. Accept His correction graciously, knowing that He gave it out of love for you.
Testing Jesus about his law—how bold is that? A Pharisees (social movement) lawyer (or expert in Moses’ law) posed a question to Jesus to put him to the test. 1 Corinthians 13 helps us understand why love is the supreme/royal law. Speaking in tongues, prophesying, knowledge, great faith, charitable giving, and martyrdom are nothing without love—love that never ends—it is the greatest of all things. God demonstrated this love—His royal law by giving us His son so that we can have eternal life.
Be thankful and mindful of praise. The next time something unpleasant happens, do as the above Scripture says, and ‘give thanks whatever happens’. I know you may not feel thankful at all times. But if you get into the habit of thanking God, it will be easy to express your appreciation. Start by saying, “Thank you, Lord (Jesus), you’re reliable and good to us” and keep doing so!
So, if you have faith—the strength or ability to perform or carry out the act of faith. Which is the ability to act on trust in God. You will put faith into action. This is another way of saying you will walk by faith. We benefit when we live by faith knowing that God will always do what he says. And that is why you’ll see wonderful things happen because God can do the impossible. Believe it and you will see it!
As stated, spiritual guidance, teaching, and instructions are of no value if we fail to follow them or listen to them. So often we do not understand the guidance that the Word of God or the message from God gives. Fortunately, we have the Holy Spirit to help us understand the Word. So study, enjoy the benefits of, and follow God’s guidance through the Word of God and the Holy Spirit.
Have faith that you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. Please receive this final word, if you believe [have faith], then you will receive whatever you pray [ask] for. So, merging prayer and faith is the best way to make good things happen.
I hope that this message from God will teach us to value who we are, what we have, and how unique we are to the One who provides for all of our needs. Most importantly, He helps us learn to be content and joyful in spite of the situation or condition.
Since we are all a part of God’s family, to respect God, we should look to other believers as our closest friends. We must also keep ourselves apart from nonbelievers. But we shouldn’t fully isolate ourselves from the non-believers (1 Corinthians 5:9-12). Let your light shine at all times and remember to pick friends wisely since even those who do not believe can experience God’s love through our life.
