When Jesus said that we would know the truth, part of this truth is that we would know ourselves. That is, who and what we are, that something is indeed wrong, that something is wrong with us! We need help, we need healing, we need something to intervene in our lives to address the broken aspects. Sin is the biblical condition named to define this issue.… Though we often see the truth and maybe even at some level want the truth, we indeed cannot always handle it—at least, not without grace.

If I offer what I love to the Lord, he may indeed take it away-my husband, my children, my home, my career, my talents, my possessions. But God gave us everything we have anyway-not to exploit for ourselves, but to put at his disposal and use for his glory.

The Sermon on the Mount is not a set of rules and regulations: it is a statement of the life we will live when the Holy Spirit is getting His way with us.

Prior to being reconciled—or “made one with”—God, we are at war, “enmity,” with Him. When peace is established, war is over. Jesus gives us peace with God, ending our state of enmity against Him. “I’ve made my peace with God,” some say as they contemplate death. But humans don’t establish that peace. An armistice in which no one wins is not true peace. Peace comes when there is a victor. Jesus conquered the enmity at the cross, and reconciled us to the Father. We are at peace with Him in Christ.

God loves you with an everlasting love. He knew you when you were being formed in your mother's womb. And He sent His only Son to die for your sins. You are important to God and your life is precious in His sight. There is no other one who is just like you: you are special!

You who can see no beauty in Christ, nor any glory in heaven—do you likewise see no flames in hell, and no hell in the loss of God? You, therefore, who cannot relish His presence—O tremble at His absence! And you who are not anxious to be with Him—O fear to be without Him!

Do not wait for a feeling to come that you are forgiven. God has said you are forgiven. Do not wait for a feeling of power to possess you. God has declared He has already given you the power. As you believe Him (and that is what faith is), you can do what you need to do and what God wants you to do.

Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek” (Matthew 5:5 ESV). If you want to be a happy person, then seek to become a man or woman of meekness.

The difficult thing about obeying God is that it always requires faith. He asks us to do things that sometimes make no sense. Other times He demands that we face seemingly impossible situations armed with nothing but His Word.

But He is faithful. He keeps His promises. And He can be absolutely trusted—in everything and with everything.

When we are set on living the way God wants us to live, we will have all we need to become men and women of godly character and faith. When we do this, there is a good chance that our children will grow up to love God and will seek Him above all else. When He is first in our lives, everything else falls into place.

One day, we will see heaven’s glory and we will bow down and worship Christ. Our unworthiness will be evident, but Christ’s worthiness will be made known to every creature.


Selah for: Nov 07, 2019


Our short brief time on earth is nothing compared to an eternity with God in heaven. We have to make a decision that we are going to live according to the Word of God, empowered by His Holy Spirit until He calls us home, and He knows exactly what day and the moment that our soul and our spirit will leave this body.

Your entrance into the throne room of grace (the very presence of God) does not depend at all upon your righteousness. If it did, you wouldn’t be allowed into the throne room at all.…Your privilege of being in the presence of God depends solely upon the forgiving, cleansing blood of Christ, which makes the believer reckoned righteous in God’s presence.

“Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.

God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places.” (Habakkuk 3:17-19 ESV)

Let God dictate your agenda and help you interpret the events of our times. Become biblically correct rather than politically correct.
