Take Time to Be

Take time to be holy, speak oft with thy Lord; abide in him always, and feed on his word. Make friends of God’s children, help those who are weak, forgetting in nothing his blessing to seek.

Take time to be holy, the world rushes on; spend much time in secret with Jesus alone. By looking to Jesus, like him thou shalt be; thy friends in thy conduct his likeness shall see.

An Appetite for the World Of

Christian consciousness begins in the painful realization that what we had assumed was the truth is in fact a lie,” “A person has to be thoroughly disgusted with the way things are to find the motivation to set out on the Christian way. . . . [One] has to get fed up with the ways of the world before he, before she, acquires an appetite for the world of grace.” Eugene Peterson

Before and After

“If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Whenever any person becomes a new creature in union with Christ, he or she becomes a new person altogether. There is a whole new creation whenever a person comes to be in Christ. The effect is the old life is passed away and a new life has begun. Everything becomes new in Christ. The person who is in Christ and has experienced the new birth is a part of the new creation.

We are new creatures in Christ Jesus. There has been a re-creation in which God has given us a new set of senses, values, and spiritual principles.

Before we were spiritually blind, now we see with spiritual eyes, and we see all things new.

Before we were spiritually deaf and we could not hear God’s Word, and now we have a new set of spiritual eyes and we hear and respond to the Holy Spirit.

Before our minds were in spiritual darkness, and we called bad, good and good, bad. Now we have the mind of Christ and we see the difference between that which is good and that, which is evil. Our minds are now being renewed day by day.

Before our hearts were hardened to spiritual truths, and we hated God and the things of God. Now God has changed them from hearts of stone to hearts made alive to the things of the Spirit.

Before we were spiritually dead, and now we have become new creatures in Christ Jesus.

Before we were a people without hope and now we have a living hope in Christ. Apart from the resurrected, living Christ we cannot have any true hope of anything beyond our grave.

Before we were without God in this world and now we have come to a living relationship with the one and only true God. We were separated from Christ and without God, but now we have an intimate personal love relationship with Him.

We were “dead in our trespasses and sins,” but now in Christ we are made alive and have been brought near through the blood of Jesus Christ (Eph. 2:13).

God has brought us near to Himself through the atoning blood of Jesus. There are no other legitimate means of coming into His presence.

Before we were “cut off” and “excluded from the citizenship of Israel,” but now we are no longer foreigners and aliens but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household” (2:19). Now we are citizens of heaven and sons of God.

Before we were cut off from the covenants and promises of God, but now we are “members of one body, and sharers together in the promises in Christ” (3:6).

Before we were “without God,” but now we are “members of God’s household” (2:19-20).

Please take a few moments and draw a line down the middle of a sheet of paper and think about what your life was like before you became a Christian. In the other column list what it has been like since Christ changed your life. This is what my life was like before I became a Christian, and this is when I put my faith in Christ to save me. Now these are the changes Christ has wrought I my life. Then take a few moments and reflect upon what you shall be like when Christ returns, or when He calls you home in death to be with Him in heaven.

What a great new life we have in Christ!

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

Do You Thank Him For

I sing to the Lord because he has taken care of me. Psalms 13 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

How many times have you sung to Jehovah for His daily care for you?

Do you thank Him for a roof over your head?

I have seen many poor living in one room shacks with no running water, and little heat in sub-zero heat.

Do you thank Him for the clothes on your back?

I have seen many poor that have no shoes, two pairs of pants and two shirts.

Do you thank Him for the food He blesses you with?

I have seen many living off of nothing but beans and rice. I thin slice of meat is a luxury to them.

Do you thank Him for your health?

I have seen many that are like zombies in seniors homes and many that are constantly sick because of poor living conditions.

Do you than Him for your security?

I have lived in area’s where you do not go out at night and in the day time it is a gamble. I have lived where it was common to see dead bodies washed up on the beach in the morning.

Do you thank Him for sending The Holy Spirit to guide you?

He has guided me away from so much danger and so many disasters.

I thank Him with songs of love and gratitude every morning when I wake up, countless times during the day and before bed at night.

How many time in a day do you sing unto Him songs of love and gratitude?

A grateful heart is the most precious gift we can give to He who have given so much to us. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you most gracious and kind Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) for blessing with with Your abundant blessings every day. Many of which I am not even aware of. I praise You in the name of Your greatest blessing to me, Jesus Christ. Amen May you have a grateful towards He who has given so much to you.

Seleh- stop and think about it.

“The spiritual struggle which the believers must conduct is between the flesh and the spirit, between the old and the new man, between the sin which continues to dwell in the believers and the spiritual principle of life which has been planted in their hearts.” Herman Bavink

Prospective Choices

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don’t have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn’t give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

What today will be like is up to me.

I get to choose what kind of day I will have!
