The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever. Isaiah 40:8 NKJV
But be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22 NKJV
The bible is the greatest love story ever told. It is the story of God creating all things in the heavens above and on the earth below.
God created us to live in a special loving relationship with Him. He would love us. We would love Him. The first man and woman severed that relationship. They chose to live outside of God’s blessing and protection.
God created man to have dominion over the earth and its creatures. Mankind’s rebellion affected everything. God took unilateral action to restore our relationship with Him. Jesus took the punishment we deserve upon Himself!
God wants us to know He loves us. He wants us to know His good and perfect plan for living in relationship with Him will not be thwarted. God will restore creation. He will restore us to our rightful place within His kingdom!
When you read God’s Word ask the Lord how it applies to you? Take the Word of God as it is intended it to be taken. As if God Himself is speaking to us. Because He is!
If you live in obedience to the Word of God He will bless you in ways you could never have dreamed possible. He will use you to bless other people in ways they could have never dreamed possible!
The great men and women written about in the bible were ordinary people just like us. They believed what God said. The Lord used them in ways they could have never dreamed possible.
The Word of God stands forever. Take a stand of faith in Jesus Christ. He is the Word of God! Do not let the Word of God go in one ear and come out the other. Believe what the bible says. Do what the bible says. Be blessed by the Word of God!
The standard of true faith in Jesus Christ is perfection. You will never live up to that standard. That is not a condemnation. It is an exhortation to trust the God of perfection to work out His good and perfect will in you and through you!
Do not be deceived. There is a price to pay for sin. Jesus paid that price in full. The Lord gave Himself up so you can live for Him today and with Him throughout eternity. Live your life to the fullest through faith in Jesus Christ!
This is the day for you to take a stand of faith on the Word of God. Jesus is the Word of God. Trust Jesus to lead you through the perils and pitfalls of life on planet earth. Trust Jesus to lead through a world devolving into a slum of sin. Nothing is impossible for God!
