“Everyone who sins is breaking God’s law, for all sin is contrary to the law of God” I John 3:4.

indexThis image is very profound.  I truly cannot take my eyes off of it.  This is what we are doing, are you aware?  Do you understand that every decision you make without God’s help is breaking His law.  We are trampling all over the foundation that was created for us.

 

The LAW to rule all laws.

Our society has put so many rules in place to protect political correctness with little to no regards as to what God wants for us.  Each time something happens that hinders a person’s freedom to be who they want to be we create a new law.

Whatever happened to what God wants for us?

Once upon a time we were a world who lived mainly with Christian values.  We prayed at the beginning of each school day.  We carried our Bibles in public even if it wasn’t a Sunday.  We read Scripture in school.  Everyone said the Pledge of Allegiance with the word God in it, not replacing it for another version of what you believed in.  There was respect for elders, obedience towards parents, attentive classrooms, neighborhood watch because everyone on your block knew each other well, and doors were never locked.

Instead we have become a society, worldly but outrageously in the USA, that believes we need to get, get, get because entitlement is our main priority.  We tear each other down instead of lifting one another up.  We prefer to gossip and bully others.  There are countless, daily, reports of people shooting others just because they looked at them funny.  Children are being sexually, physically, and emotionally abused by their parents because they can get away with it and in a lot of those cases their kids get returned to them!  We have people beating each other down over the latest toy. (Why on Earth does your kid need that toy so much that you feel the need to beat another over it?)

YOU ARE SINNING!

The punishments of the world will not ever compare to an eternity in HELL.  If you want to prevent awarding YOURSELF with eternal damnation then discipline yourself and children in the way of the Lord.  There really is a HEAVEN and there really is a HELL.  If you make choices in life that are not God honoring your future may be an INESCAPABLE HELL.  I recommend you read up on that place, it is not a destination I would want to ever visit.

“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God” ~Colossians 3:1.

What is holding you back? The Lord wants us to grow closer to Him. Just because you were saved does not mean that is as close as He ever wants you to get. The angels are rejoicing when you praise His name but is that all the closer you are to become? Every person has the ability to learn more about Him because in our lifetime we will never learn everything. So, what is holding you back?

“The Lord is my light and my salvation. Should I fear anyone? The Lord is a fortress protecting my life. Should I be frightened of anything?” Psalm 27:1

Why do people fear so much? I know it is a humanistic behavior but not one encouraged by God. The Bible actually has 365 verses that tell us not to worry/fear of anything. Kind of ironic that there are 365 days in a year and He chose to remind us not worry or fear that many times as well. He chose to cover every day of the year with an encouragement of His presence. 

I used to be a person who feared everything. I was afraid to be alone in my home, afraid to walk to my car in the dark, and afraid to go to places known for violence. Why? Was my fear going to save me from being harmed? No. Was my fear or worry going to prevent someone from making a choice that may alter both of our lives? No. So, what is the point?

“Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.  May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus.”  Romans 15:4-5

A few weeks ago I posted a question on my Facebook page regarding Old Testament Laws and whether or not they apply to us today.  Many Christians believe that the big 10 (the Ten Commandments) still apply but the other 593 are no longer relevant.  Why choose only those ten?  I can understand how the commandments pertaining to sacrificing no longer apply because Jesus Christ became the ultimate sacrifice but how does that negate all the other ones except for the Ten Commandments?  I kept seeing responses from people about how the old “Laws” are no longer relevant and my response was, “well then why do you still follow the Ten Commandments, they are part of the old?”  Not one person could come up with a definitive answer, they just kept dancing around the subject.

“Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.”  Proverbs 3:3

My husband and I were watching the news last night.  Being broadcast all over the nation was a story about a young man being shot by a police officer.  It occurred several months back, went to trial, was reviewed for three months by a grand jury (only) and the verdict was in.

All over the streets, in several major cities, people gathered in groups of a few hundred awaiting the announcement.  This story had become, what some people declared, a race issue.  Here is where the tricky part comes into play. (more…)

“Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips.  Do not incline my heart to any evil thing, to practice deeds of wickedness with men who do iniquity; And do not let me eat of their delicacies.” Psalm 141:3-4

It is no secret that most women’s weaknesses are that of gossiping.  The Bible is extremely clear about gossip but still we women chose to partake in the extra curricular activity of spreading information we have no business speaking of.  We even get as crafty as saying things like, “can I pray for so and so, she is dealing with _____________” (fill in the blank).   (more…)
