The Face of Jesus

Bigger Than Being Rich or Poor

Coveting is bigger than about being rich or poor, because many times the coveting rich are too attached to the possessions they have, and the coveting poor are too attached to the possessions they want!  10-06-19

Negotiating Your Obedience

If you don’t understand who Jesus really is, you will always try to negotiate your obedience to Him, having a form of religion without the power.

The Bigger Battle

Questioning Jesus

If you don’t understand who Jesus truly is, you will question Him and the Bible as if you are the Lord over Him instead of trembling before Him as your Creator and the one who alone can save a wretch like you! 

Thus, says the LORD: “Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is My place of rest? For all those things My hand has made, and all that exists,” Says the LORD. “But in this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word.”      -Isaiah 66:1-2        10-06-19

 

100 Percent

God doesn’t want your 10 percent if He doesn’t have your heart, but when He has your heart He demands 100 percent!   10-06-19

 

None Are Righteous

Ironically, the problem with both the self-righteous person and the despairing sinner is that they are trusting in themselves instead of the gospel of Jesus. The self-righteous person thinks she has done enough good that God must love her more; The despairing sinner thinks he has done so much bad that God could never love him at all. BOTH are placing the emphasis on themselves instead of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which tells us that none are righteous enough to earn salvation, and none have sinned beyond God’s ability to save those who turn to Jesus! 09-29-16
