What You Most Desire

What do you desire the most?

Is it fame, fortune, wealth, or  love?

If your answer is ALL OF THE ABOVE.

Then, my friend, you are missing life.

LIFE without CHRIST is NO LIFE at all.

 CHRIST should be the one you desire the most.

The MOST not the least.

“…I came so they might have life, a great full life. For I am the only way, the truth, and the life!”  

— Jesus Christ —

The Truth About Forever

Everyone thinks that forever is simply the exaggeration of life here in this world. If forever is simply stated that way, how then should we live our lives?  Better yet,  ask ourselves, what is truly the truth about forever?

 

“Life can be long or short, it all depends on how you choose to live it. It’s like forever, always changing. for any of us our forever could end in an hour, or a hundred years from now. You can never know for sure, so you’d better make every second count. What you have to decide is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, is this how you’d want to have spent it?”                                                                                           

                                                                                                                   —Sarah Dessen

“And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? 

Is anything worth more than your soul?”

—Matthew 16:26 (NLT)

The Whole Armor of God

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

Ephesians 6:10-11 (ESV)

Life is a battlefield. If we go out to war inadequately equipped and protected, it would be difficult to survive; hence, it is imperative that we as God’s soldiers take up His Whole Armor for us—

The Belt of Truth, The Breastplate of Righteousness, The Shoes of the Gospel of Peace, The Shield of Faith, The Helmet of Salvation and The Sword of the Spirit

…then pray at all times!

The Tale of Two Sons

Unfelt truth is just as dangerous as rejected truth.

The son who stayed was just as lost as the son who left.

 “He ran to his [lost] son…

…So the father went out and pleaded with [his elder son].”

— Jesus (Luke 15:11-32)

For our unrighteousness and self-righteousness can never save us. Only His righteousness can.

Hard-To-Love People

LOVE ONE ANOTHER DEEPLY

“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.”

~ 1 Peter 1:22-23 ~

You can only learn to love by being around hard-to-love people.

I Don’t Want To Believe

How can anyone deny the existence of God

when denying the reality of something

is to reject its truth out of willful ignorance?

True or False?

“Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.”

2 Timothy 3:16, MSG

We’re all theologians. The question is

whether what we know about God is true.

~Joshua Harris, Dug Down Deep~

Stand Up for Truth!

“Conviction is something we believe,
not because someone is making us, not because we have to,
but because we are convinced it’s what God would have us believe.”
 
— Joshua Harris, “Dug Down Deep”

Are your beliefs rooted in eternity?

Twisted Nobody

“We love the truth when it enlightens us, but we hate it when it convicts us…”

Augustine hit the core of how we live so selfishly; never wanting to really embrace the real truth and reject truthful lies. And most of the time, when confronted with reality, we hide ourselves from it and fake our way out into believing that we define the truth.

We are even so accustomed to disguise ourselves from other people that in the end we disguise ourselves from ourselves leading us nowhere but the taste of our own destructive selfishness – all because we love twisting the truth for our lies.

Drop the lies and hold on to the Truth. Experience, for yourselves, Him who is the Truth and you will be set free – from a twisted nobody to a truthful somebody.

Truth

It’s not just about finding truth,

It’s also about allowing truth to reveal itself.

THE

“Articles may seem to be harmless words,

but they actually represent the boundary between truth and untruth.”

Buddha may peacefully claim to be a way.

Allah may aggressively declare to be a way.

Mohammad may announce to have found a way.

However.

Only Jesus Christ could have so boldly, radically, and truthfully say,

“I am not A way,

I am THE way; I am THE truth, and I am THE life.

I am THE only way to get to God.”

A Slap of the Truth

“God exists whether or not men may choose to believe in Him. The reason why many people do not believe in God is not so much that it is intellectually impossible to believe in God, but because belief in God forces that thoughtful person to face the fact that he is accountable to such a God.” — Robert A. Laidlaw 

“God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.

Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.

So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.”  

(Romans 1:18-25 NLT)

A life lived in autonomy is a life lingered in abomination.
