CALLED TO A HOLY LIFE

I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy – Leviticus 11:44 (NIV)

Be Holy, because I am Holy, were the words that God gave the children of Israel when by His own wisdom called them and set them apart for Himself (Lev. 11: 45).  In 1 Peter 1:16, Peter reminds believers that they are to move away from the lives they lived before and live holy lives because of the nature of the One who has called them.

HOLY USE OF MONEY

“Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent? Who may live on your holy mountain? The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from their heart; whose tongue utters no slander, who does no wrong to a neighbor, and casts no slur on others; who despises a vile person but honors those who fear the Lord; who keeps an oath even when it hurts, and does not change their mind; who lends money to the poor without interest; who does not accept a bribe against the innocent. Whoever does these things will never be shaken.” – Psalm 1 Continue reading “HOLY USE OF MONEY”

THE FREEDOM OF SALVATION

For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.” The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.” Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” – Galatians 3:10-13

The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.

The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.

Are you on the right road? Do you have a good map to avoid wrong turns? If you stay on the highway of the upright, you will save yourself much trouble. The Bible marks the road well, but there are many confusing and enticing turns to get you lost. The winners in the race of life, the children of God, stay on the highway of the upright (Is 35:8-10).

“WHY ISN’T GOD SPEAKING

“But if he remains silent, who can condemn him? If he hides his face, who can see him? Yet he is over individual and nation alike” – Job 34:29
The Bible speaks of times when God chose to be silent—to an individual or to humanity as a whole. David cried out to Him but discerned no answer (Psalm 22:2). Then there was Job, who must have felt the Lord had abandoned him. And during the gap between the Old and New Testaments, God had no prophet for 400 years.

Friendship

‘A man of too many friends comes to ruin.’- Proverbs 18:24 NASB
An important part of life is making, and maintaining, relationships with the right people. We’re not supposed to do life on our own. When we’ve got friends, we’ve got a support network and people to share the good and bad Continue reading “Friendship”

PROVERBS 1:21

“She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,” – Proverbs 1:21
Where is wisdom? Solomon wrote Proverbs to teach wisdom to young men in particular and to all God’s children in general (Pr 1:1-6). Where must you go to find it? Wisdom is freely offered everywhere to those who will stop and listen (Pr 1:20-23; 8:1-10; 9:1-5).
