My Prayer for Today

My Prayer for Today Heavenly Father, I saw a cover of a book that read, "How to Like with Small Sins". I immediately turned away from the advertisement knowing that:  God is HolyGod is no respecter of personSin is a stench in His nostrils"The wages of sin is death..."John 3:14-21In Your Word Lord, we are told that "many would come in sheep clothing and that they would fool even the very elect  of God." With that said in this prayer, I pray that born again Christian's don't entertain such trash. But read true spiritual books; most relevant ,The Bible. The same would go for trashy movies depicting the movie makers or authors of books saying that they have founded something new that God has omitted. I pray that through true faith from the Bible's first word, "In", to the last word "Amen." Notice the period "." at the end of the Book meaning that "In" to "Amen.",the period "." signifies that…

         “Ye must be born again.” 
         — John 3:7

Regeneration is a subject which lies at the very basis of salvation, and we should be very diligent to take heed that we really are “born again,” for there are many who fancy they are, who are not. Be assured that the name of a Christian is not the nature of a Christian; and that being born in a Christian land, and being recognized as professing the Christian religion is of no avail whatever, unless there be something more added to it—the being “born again,” is a matter so mysterious, that human words cannot describe it. “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” Nevertheless, it is a change which is known and felt: known by works of holiness, and felt by a gracious experience. This great work is supernatural. It is not an operation which a man performs for h…

Signs and Satire

March 6: Signs and Satire
Psalm 7:1–17; John 12:37–50

The images of judgment in Psa.7 and John 12 are sometimes hard to take. We are so acquainted with a God of love that it’s difficult to understand a God who blinds eyes, hardens hearts, and “has indignation every day” (Psa. 7:11). While these passages paint a picture of a judging God, they also emphasize how foolish and evil people can be—specifically focusing on those who push the boundaries of God’s mercy and thus eventually find themselves outside of it.
In Psalm 7, God is preparing to judge the evil man. Suddenly, the psalm switches focus to the evil man’s situations: “See, he travails with evil. He is pregnant with trouble, and he gives birth to deception. He makes a pit and digs it out, then falls in the trap he has made” (Psa. 7:14–15). The evil man’s folly is directly correlated to God’s just judgment. God is ready and willing to forgive those who repent. But the evil man dwells in evil—he conceives it and is intimately conne…
