Eternal Life Available.

Devotion

And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.

— John 17:3 NLT

Insight: 

You can live forever, if you follow the direction of the Holy Spirit.  Either way there is the availability to achieve eternity.  It is simply a matter of where you desire to belong once life has finishes and Eternity begins.  It doesnt matter hiw long it takes to get to that point.  Be glad He has chosen you to share in His Glory for all eternity. The Lord doesn’t want to see your end, He wants to establish a lengthy life even after this.

You get to have Eternal Life by knowing the Savior in the pardoning of your sins.


He pardoned you.  He gave you the escape you needed from the sin of death.  That is what the end of it all will be.  Sin produces death in us.  Life is produced by living according to the commandment of the Word of God.  To know Him means to be intimate, and personal.  Allowing Christ into your private areas in your life.  Let Him come in and sup with you for the rest of your existence.   Do not shun the presence of God because it seems hard to meet the standard.  The old saints sung a song about knowing the man from Galilee.   His name is Jesus.  Emmanuel God with us.  King of kings and Lord of lords, the great I’am, Holy one of Israel.

We really need to know who He is to us personally.  Thus is how you gain Eternal Life.  Know Him fully.  Know Him personally.

Present Your Body

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

— Romans 12:1 ESV

Note: we can make ourselves presentable when we want to impress others.  We can change our outward appearance when we desire to be sexual and attractive to another person, but when it comes to the Lord God and what He expects, we deny Him the right to dictate to us our approach to life.

God is in charge of what we do with our lives, because we are His sheep, His children.  He expects us to be righteous in His sight.  Not walking around here expressing ourselves in a flesh manner and expect the Lord to cover because He loves us so much.

He does, and He will forgive us for sin, but we must realize that Grace only goes so far.  After life that has been lived, Grace is no longer needed, because you will no longer be in the flesh when we stand before the Lord.  Praying that we are not guilty.

Sacrifice and live Holy.  Live without sin.  Do not wake up and make decisions to improve your skills in lying or deceiving.  Make a decision to get up daily to serve the Lord your creator and King.

This shows that you and I have the heart and spirit to be faithful to our God.  It doesn’t matter about who is running this race with you, it matters that you find the strength to run with patience.  To endure as a soldier not of misfurtune, but full of joy and gratitude for what you have been given from the Lord tour God.

Let the Spirit move you to move others.

Scattered and Left Alone.

But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when you will be scattered, each one going his own way, leaving me alone. Yet I am not alone because the Father is with me.

— John 16:32 NLT

Insight————————————————————————When you need people the moat, they leave you to go through the most difficult tasks you least expect.   Christ needed to know that His disciples would not only walk with Him on the path to reaching others with salvation and hope, He needed to know they could stand the next stage with Him, but He knew before hand that they would scatter and run with fear.  People always exit when there is trouble.  They can’t handle the hardships that come with the movement, they only want it to be easy going, without struggle.

When the Word tells us to trade our burdens with the Lord.  We must understand that His burdens come with surrendering ones life for what you now believe.

It is easy to just give your commitment, and not have to follow through with real blood sacrifice.  He could carry it out, where we would run away with fear trying to save ourselves.

The Father and the Son ofnthe living God rest with the believer.  We invited Him into our lives as Lord and Savior.  He has come to set captives free from the torture of sin and death.  We no longer have to fear what comes with sin, because we are not subject to that punishment, if we have been delivered and made free through the blood of the Lamb.  

Eternal life to all who call on the name of the Lord as their personal savior.  Who believe that Jesus Christ isnthe Son of the Living God of Israel.  Those who carry the banner of the King.  Those who have surrendered all to the Lord and withhold nothing from Him.

Your life is exposed to the King of kings.  He has reign over your existence.  If He does not hold that place, then I don’t know what to tell you.  How can you be stamped approved of the Lord, if He has no place in your heart?

These disciples have ran because they had to, to keep the ministry of the Lord alive.  Most of us try to get away because we do not want to do the work, according to ministers I hear from.  They were running from the Lord.  Many of us did not run from the responsibility of carrying the Gospel.  We have kept the call from the beginning.  It does not make us special,  it just says , all have not forsaken our Lord.  There are those who keep it going and stay one step ahead by the Mercies of God.  That is what you walk in.  The Mercies of the Lord, who makes you to shine in the world full of darkness.  Eternal life to you all who keep going and do not turn around.

No More Infirmities.

That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bore our sicknesses.

Matt. 8:17

——————————————————–

Why do I still deal with sickness and disease within my body?  Maybe, it is because I haven’t done what the Lord told me to do, so that I could be better in my body.

Do you recall when the Lord gave you specific instructions and you didn’t follow them?  That is why you have the trouble today because you didn’t listen to the Spirit.  I know the Lord informed me before I started dealing with particular additional sickness.   He told me to stop eating certain foods and to start a healthier diet, and I gave myself excuse after excuse, until I heard from the doctor about heart conditions and threats of diabetes.  

I often wonder why we plead so hard for God healing when the Lord gives us warnings before the destruction?  Christ takes the pain and the disease from us.  He is asking us to lean and depend upon Him, and He will care for us.

We must not live our lives based upon the helplessness sickness and disease bring.  I see so many of our brothers and sisters laying in depression and letting their condition take them to a dark place inside.  They do not find confidence in the hope Christ gives to us who are hidden in Him.

The Word says that He is the God that heals us, He is the Lord who brings relief to those who give Him their all.  We do not dread infirmities in Christ,  we walk in wholeness and complete.  His stripes and His blood has brought about total restoration in our mind, body and soul.

Trust that He has you in the depth of His being, as long as you and I keep Him in the depth of our hearts and soul.  The doctors are practicing on us, and truthfully that might very well be the reason we are sick in our bodies, but we cannot allow our minds to take on the condition and cause us to walk as if there is no hope for us at all.

Let me say this to you my family.

Your conditions you deal with may have been temporal, and at a height when you went to your appointment.  They took your blood and read your charts at that  time and determined based upon others they practiced on that you have a known condition.

What if you follow the Word when it comes to correcting your health and restoring your body function?  The heamrbs and spices and fruits and vegetables that are in the Scripture, God has set for us to use in temporary times of ailments.   You and I are not sick, we are healed.  We need to think and perform the tasks that bring about this concept.

Seek Your Neighbors Good

1 Corinthians 10:24  Let no one seek his own good, but that of his neighbor.

____________________________________________________________________

Seek to help another brother or sister with their needs in life, and you will be rewarded by your God and King. 

Assist in making sure that others areOk.  This is the Christ in us all.  That we see to each others good.  Don’t be a stumbling block to people, but a person who lifts another up in Spirit.  One who encourages the foundation of a person s truest belief in Christ.

Your encouragement could save the life of those in valleys of contemplation.  Many who have been in the faith are now questioning everything they have learned, and that is because of those who have let them down.  Mentors who no longer walk the right way.  Who have used people and caused them to doubt God.

When you are seeing to a person’s total well being.  You are looking out for them, Spiritually, Physically and emotionally.  It is what people are in need of today.  The full service package. 

I recall in my youth as a new driver on the road,  pulling up to fueling stations and having the choice of full service, or self service.  I tried full service and found out that it had extra attached to it.  They would check fluids in your vehicle and top it off for free along with the fuel you were purchasing and it wasn’t extra in cost.

We should do better at giving the full service trestment, and not just partial, or mostly self served religions.  What does your brother have need of that you are sitting in the back of your closet?  Maybe he or she could use that item that you are actually harboring for some rainy day situation.. Maybe even holding on to a future you, in that outfit that could help someone else feel confident in, but you are holding on to it until you loose the weight you have been working on for a while now.

Look to serve God through the full service attitude you give to others.  I know you would not like it if God made you work for a place in eternity, knowing you might not make the quota.   He hasn’t left that Job to us, just the task of being good and showing compassion to others along the way.

This full service give to your fellowman, us who Christ actually is.  He gave full service, by giving us His whole life.  He died that you might have the right to the tree of Eternal Life through faith in Christ Jesus.

You and I do not have to fend for ourselves with Christ as head of our hearts.  He will attend to your protection detail.  The enemy cannot attack the one who defeated him already.  

To many of us fight the devil daily and loose.  We need to trust the Lord with our lives.  He knows exactly what we have need of, and how to get us to a finished goal.

Daddy Said So

Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him.

— Job 13:15 NIV

__________________________________________________________________________

Though He chastised me, yet will I trust Him.  Though He scold me, I will still be obedient to my Father and King.

How much contour trust God?  Do you still completely love Him when you are being reprimanded?  When He is displeased with what you have allowed yourself to get into and need Abba to come and rescue you?  You know on the waynhome you will be chastised and corrected.  Maybe even popped inside the head for doing something so dumb.

He loves us and He had to let Job know that before Job turned on himself and commit some type of inner suicide, as I like to call it.

We get depressed and oppressed about what toys we cannot have when we ask.  We become frantic because we have to live in a smaller unit than we are used to.  So, we look at it as if God has punished and abandoned us all at the same time.  

God will not turn from us, unless we indulge in sinfilled acts.  He cannot look directly at His creation falling into the beguiling arms of the enemy and indulging pleasure, and then we come with the stench of evils residue upon our mortal bodies and want to be blessed and covered by our loving Father.

Even after He has told us what the enemy is all about, many still gravitate to disobedience.

I have coined this phrase over the years.

“Sin Is Energy”.  When we are doing the business of the church and serving the Lord in our hearts, we failnto give our flesh a meaningful task, so that it doesn’t become distracted by it’s own lusts and desires.

When we are praying to the Lord, we become sleepy and tired that we can hardly finish the task of prayer and supplication.  Let’s not even mention study the Word and it is like someone filled our minds with infomercials all of a sudden and we become dazed and worn tithe point we slobber on the Scripture.  Only coming to, when someone says; let’s go somewhere and do something.  That’s is when we find our selves energized. 

We must fight our urge to allow sin from our members.  Fight the devil, not God and your family, because they tell you where you are going wrong.  These people are here to help, but we can feel as if they are against us.  God wants you safe.  Your loved ones  are trying to keep in the right minds set.  They love you too.  Try to open up and get it, before it’s all over.

Humiliated by Strangers

We are confounded, because we have heard reproach: shame has covered our faces: for strangers are come into the sanctuaries of the LORD’s house.

Jer. 51:51

————____________________———–

Why have we allowed such strange things to go on among our people.  Instead of walking the straight and narrow path to Holiness, we have let people in who do not adhere to the same truth we have lived by all of these years since the resurrection of our Savior.

We have allowed people from the block to come in and change our youth departments which ultimately changes everything.  It is said that children when over the parents.  Now we have rallies that are just shouting events and telling without a true cause.  We send our kids to camps that come across as Christian based but are just regular summer camps where anything goes.  There is no real truth, but underlining hypocrisy.

We can’t keep allowing these strangers to come in and bring us to shame.  We who have the knowledge and the time applied in living this faith life.

Either these strangers are embarrassing our faith or they are out doing us.  Ether way, we should be ashamed of our selves.

The Revealing Light

12Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”

__________________________________

The Light of Christ keeps us from allowing sin to creep upon us.  It also show what we do, so that we can put a stop to indulgence to wrong activities of believers in Christ.  That’s why in Christ it is an; if you sin mentality not a; when you sin mentality.  In Christ there is right and Holiness.

He is the light of the world, we are His reflection.  You can not shine where there is not power.  If His power ceases to be in you, then you and I are full of darkness. 

Express your light to the world, show the brightness of His splendor in you, that others may bow their heads and honor the Lord your God.

Keep the mode lighting for your spouse and you.  God doesn’t need to be swooped off His feet with your fancy moves.  That is all freshly and has nothing to do with Him.

If your the light, it is because He is light, and where there is light darkness leaves.

So put out the darkness, and not the lights.

More Glory From God.

We all show the Lord’s glory, and we are being changed to be like him. This change in us brings more and more glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

____________________________________________________________________

The glow of God and the favor of the Lord is shown upon us.  When we are complete doing the right things and being in the right locations in life. 

Because we are active servants of the Lord and His Glory is shown upon us.  We gain more opportunities to present the Lord to those who have shut themselves off from the goodness and righteousness of God.

Let the Glory of our Lord rise among us.  Let His fame be that we show to the wirkd, not our talents and skill.  Just because we sing and preach well and retain information to cause others to gaze at us in amazement, does not meam we are the star of the show.  

He is the MAIN EVENT, the Star of the story.  His Glory is the glow everyone see’ s upon us.  It is called anointing.  The gift to preach and teach, the ability to persuade others that this life is the right choice.

We do not have the option of show boating, are trying to steal the show from our Lord.  Without Him we can do nothing.

Miracle hands and  Prophetic seeing ability all comes through the anointing that is made available because we are fully surrendered in ourselves, and He is exalted.

Belief in Him.

f you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.

— Romans 10:9-10

__________________________________

Because we believe in the Son of God, we are saved.  Sharing that information with people who do not believe, proves we appreciate what has been offered to us.  This establishes the fact our faith means something more to us.  Because, we share the story of who He is to us and why we believe in His mighty name.

They said; take the Lord along with you everywhere you go.  Which indicates that when we have rare conversations, that we should be telling others of His perfect love for the world.  We should let people know that the Lord had planned to save us through the forgiving Blood of His Sons sacrifice.  It takes faith to tell of the story of Christ in your life.  You need an example of who you were before salvation, so that others may understand what it means to you to be saved and set free from bondage of wrong thinking and doing.

We do not give the impression that He will allow us to remain stuck to who we were, but that through Him we can change for the better.  Before we were saved we might have been terrible at living life., but now we have something to live for, because we have been set free from the enemies persuasive conversation.

Salvation is about taking something that was once used for selfish pleasure and discarded as trash or worthless garbage, and turning it into a priceless treasure.

What the Lord has done for us, is make us worth something after we used our lives for various things that left us in a.position of being forever damned without Christ.

We tell the world and are not ashamed to share where He found us.  When your happy to be redeemed and saved from deaths grip, it should be easy to tell another person you find who is dealing wonderful issues, how much the Lord can do for that individual.  If they would only surrender to His love for them.

St John 3:16 is a scripture that everyone has seen and should know by now in their lives.  Just believe that He is the Son of the Living God, and that God has sent His Son to save the world from sin and death.  This is the start of true belief.
