Let the lying lips be mute, which speak insolently against the righteous in pride and contempt. Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind! In the cover of your presence you hide them from the plots of men; you store them in your shelter from the strife of tongues. Blessed be the Lord , for he has wondrously shown his steadfast love to me when I was in a besieged city. I had said in my alarm, "I am cut off from your sight." But you heard the voice of my pleas for mercy when I cried to you for help. Love the Lord , all you his saints! The Lord preserves the faithful but abundantly repays the one who acts in pride. Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord ! Psalms 31:18-24 ESV #JesusISLORD @togetherfortheGospel
In you, O Lord , do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame; in your righteousness deliver me! Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily! Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me! For you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name's sake you lead me and guide me; you take me out of the net they have hidden for me, for you are my refuge. Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O Lord , faithful God. I hate those who pay regard to worthless idols, but I trust in the Lord . I will rejoice and be glad in your steadfast love, because you have seen my affliction; you have known the distress of my soul, and you have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy; you have set my feet in a broad place. Be gracious to me, O Lord , for I am in distress; my eye is wasted from grief; my soul and my body also. For my life is spent with sorrow, and my years with sighing; my strength fails because of my iniquity, and my bones waste away. Because of all my adversaries I have become a reproach, especially to my neighbors, and an object of dread to my acquaintances; those who see me in the street flee from me. I have been forgotten like one who is dead; I have become like a broken vessel. For I hear the whispering of many— terror on every side!— as they scheme together against me, as they plot to take my life. But I trust in you, O Lord ; I say, "You are my God." My times are in your hand; rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors! Make your face shine on your servant; save me in your steadfast love! O Lord , let me not be put to shame, for I call upon you; let the wicked be put to shame; let them go silently to Sheol. Psalms 31:1-17 ESV #JesusISLORD @sermonaudio
It’s always a joy to Baptize! This is one of the 7 children that I had the privilege of claiming for Jesus Christ on Sunday. May the Lord bless and guide these newest Catholics so that they may glorify Him as disciples throughout their lives. #priesting #baptism #inthenameofthefatherandofthesonandoftheholyspirit #sacramentofbaptism #spiritualfather #joy #godisgood #jesusislord
Q. Is it possible to worship God without being born again? A. No. The Word of God says, “God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24. Unless the spirit of man or woman is born again, they will not be able to worship God in spirit and in truth. Romans 8:26, “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”
By recognizing Jesus as Lord and trusting him with EVERY piece of our life, we are are assured salvation. If you have never trusted in Jesus to save you, time is running out. Your life can be filled with joy by making Him Lord over all. #exerciseyourfaith #votd #JesusisLord #salvation #makeHimKingofyourlife #receivejoy #everlastinglife
"You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Spirit. As your fathers did, so do you. Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who announced beforehand the coming of the Righteous One, whom you have now betrayed and murdered, you who received the law as delivered by angels and did not keep it." Now when they heard these things they were enraged, and they ground their teeth at him. But he, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. And he said, "Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God." But they cried out with a loud voice and stopped their ears and rushed together at him. Then they cast him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their garments at the feet of a young man named Saul. And as they were stoning Stephen, he called out, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." And falling to his knees he cried out with a loud voice, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." And when he had said this, he fell asleep. Acts 7:51-60 ESV #JesusISLORD @kiadim77
Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown in prison. Matthew 5:25 The conscience is best obeyed. Don't get me wrong, your conscience may not always be right. Or it may be weak. Or more sensitive than it needs to be. But as a basic rule of the road of life - your conscience is best obeyed. For God has given every person a conscience. And the conscience helps us to know when we are in the right, and when we are in the wrong. Our conscience is like the 'canary down the mine' providing warning when things are not right. When things are off. And like the canary, your conscience is best listened to. You silence it at your own peril. It remains a 'lifeline' to the image of God within you. But those whose conscience has been silenced? Seared? Thinned? The internal brake is gone. The engine governor is off. The internal controls lost. You are now left to your own device. Handed over to your own ignorance and sin. Left to your own 'hellish' desire. Is this the direction you want to take? The path you want to walk?

for my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water. "Is Israel a slave? Is he a homeborn servant? Why then has he become a prey? The lions have roared against him; they have roared loudly. They have made his land a waste; his cities are in ruins, without inhabitant. Moreover, the men of Memphis and Tahpanhes have shaved the crown of your head. Have you not brought this upon yourself by forsaking the Lord your God, when he led you in the way? And now what do you gain by going to Egypt to drink the waters of the Nile? Or what do you gain by going to Assyria to drink the waters of the Euphrates? Your evil will chastise you, and your apostasy will reprove you. Know and see that it is evil and bitter for you to forsake the Lord your God; the fear of me is not in you, declares the Lord God of hosts. "For long ago I broke your yoke and burst your bonds; but you said, 'I will not serve.' Yes, on every high hill and under every green tree you bowed down like a whore. Yet I planted you a choice vine, wholly of pure seed. How then have you turned degenerate and become a wild vine? Though you wash yourself with lye and use much soap, the stain of your guilt is still before me, declares the Lord God . How can you say, 'I am not unclean, I have not gone after the Baals'? Look at your way in the valley; know what you have done— a restless young camel running here and there, a wild donkey used to the wilderness, in her heat sniffing the wind! Who can restrain her lust? None who seek her need weary themselves; in her month they will find her. Keep your feet from going unshod and your throat from thirst. But you said, 'It is hopeless, for I have loved foreigners, and after them I will go.' "As a thief is shamed when caught, so the house of Israel shall be shamed: they, their kings, their officials, their priests, and their prophets, Jeremiah 2:13-26 ESV #JesusISLORD @kiadim77
Q. What is the primary reason that God wants man to be born again? A. The primary reason for being born again is to restore the relationship between God and man and to give man back the security of knowing his Creator and that he is loved by Him. John 14:23, “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” It is so you can have life and communion with God and fellowship with Him. To walk with Him and talk with Him openly, freely and to know His love is beyond any other experience known to mankind.
So deep in love with this one in particular.... Desperate for His touch...desperate for a glimpse of heaven for the Glory of the son of God. Reaching out to find that there's nothing greater than His love....this love that holds my life. In just a moment He touched my life changed me to forever be found in Him alone. His Grace and mercy sought,found and saved me , washed me made me worthy and Righteous. This love is just like fire...that burns for all to see.... My only desire is to worship at his feet. This fire consumes my heart... Takes me deeper, draws me closer to where He is coz all I want is more of Him. I surrender to His Love, forever humbled by the message of the cross ,I stand abandoned in His presence and embrace and I'll never be the same again. JESUS I BELONG TO YOU. . . . #JesusChrist #loverofmysoul #Jesusforevermyking #Holyspirit #God #faith #love #joy #peace #grace #Christisbae #worshiper #praiseJesus #JesusisLord
Success is based on sacrifice. You’re only successful in the areas where you sacrifice. A parent sacrifices time in order to nurture a successful relationship with the child. A business man/woman sacrifices resources in order to grow the business. A man/ woman of faith presents their life as a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1 ) in order to successfully walk with God and reap the benefits. . . . .If you value it, you’ll sacrifice for it. If you sacrifice for it, you’ll succeed in it. This is the law of giving and receiving. Luke 6:38- give and it shall be given unto you.. . . . .We challenge you today to live a life of giving- give your praise to God, your talents/gifts, and most importantly, give your heart to God.
FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT Temperance (Gr. Egkrateia ) - Self-control and moderation exemplified in the indulgence of appetites and passions, including food, drink, the spending of money and other areas of living. Commentary: Through the cultivation of this fruit, one will learn when and where not to do certain things. In other words, within the confines of this fruit, one will receive what would be called an inner witness that says to the born again believer, that is enough, you're safe, or you're out. Temperance helps us to see that too little or too much can effect imbalances in our character, as in the natural world we can see that vitamin overdoses can be as harmful as vitamin deficiencies. Therefore, too much restriction can imbalance the believer even as too much indulgence.

But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. 2 Peter 3:8-13 ESV #JesusISLORD @cslewisdaily

When my soul was embittered, when I was pricked in heart, I was brutish and ignorant; I was like a beast toward you. Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. For behold, those who are far from you shall perish; you put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to you. But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works. Psalms 73:21-28 ESV #JesusISLORD @1689society

As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness. And I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land. And I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, by the ravines, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them with good pasture, and on the mountain heights of Israel shall be their grazing land. There they shall lie down in good grazing land, and on rich pasture they shall feed on the mountains of Israel. I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep, and I myself will make them lie down, declares the Lord God . I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak, and the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them in justice. "As for you, my flock, thus says the Lord God : Behold, I judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and male goats. Is it not enough for you to feed on the good pasture, that you must tread down with your feet the rest of your pasture; and to drink of clear water, that you must muddy the rest of the water with your feet? And must my sheep eat what you have trodden with your feet, and drink what you have muddied with your feet? "Therefore, thus says the Lord God to them: Behold, I, I myself will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep. Because you push with side and shoulder, and thrust at all the weak with your horns, till you have scattered them abroad, I will rescue my flock; they shall no longer be a prey. And I will judge between sheep and sheep. And I will set up over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd. And I, the Lord , will be their God, and my servant David shall be prince among them. I am the Lord ; I have spoken. Ezekiel 34:12-24 ESV #JesusISLORD @alistair_begg_truthforlife
"You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet.

For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:2-5 ESV #JesusISLORD #JesusChrist #TheCross #RisenKing @challies

#bible #bibleverse #truth #light #jesussaves #jesusislord “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
It is not about how many stages we set feet upon, it is not about how many books we write, it is not about how many albums we produce, or how many healing miracles God does through us, it's not about how far we can travel, what degrees or schools we can lay up for ourselves, or how wide we can spend, it is not even about how many tv programs we can acquire, or who we associate with. It is simply about servanthood. He who desires to be great in the kingdom of God, will serve all, not be served by all. (Matthew 20:26-28 ) "Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave. Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." I'll tell who the greatest is in the kingdom of heaven: it's Jesus Christ. For He gave His life for many, He humbled Himself as God to become man, even the least of these to pave the way as the first of many fruits. There is no greater gift, or sacrifice. Therefore, all who desire greatness--will become like Christ, without the washing of feet we have no part in Him. Without the washing of others feet the same is so. You do not have to be acknowledged by men to be great, child of God, take heart- the last shall be first and where God has you right now could be the greatest gift to all- to serve, that may be at home, or in someone else's home, or that may be abroad or in church, but the servant is not greater than the master, know that if the master was treated horribly, so will the servant be. Keep serving others regardless, keep being poured out like a drink offering. This is my prayer: that you would serve each other as Christ has served us, and gave himself up for us. Amen.
Hey... It’s Jeff!!! When I was doing auditions in LA, there was always an age limit. Everyone had to be under 25 to even get in the door. As I got closer to that age, my insecurities would build. I would get anxiety just thinking about how my dream was over if I didn’t “make it” by then. 🤷♂️ Truth = Age has no effect on wether I can succeed or impact the world. I just suffered another form of self doubt that allowed me to make excuses as to why I’m not where I want to be, and why I should just give up. 💥 I had to SNAP out of that mindset. It’s never too late for me or for any of us. Ain’t nobody got time for negative thoughts like that. We’ve got to Believe in yourself and get to work. We got this! #guitarist #nevergiveup #dreamers
