Short n sweet today friends – have an AB FAB weekend!!
Proverbs 12:22 – “Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, but those who deal truthfully are His delight.” An abomination is something that “nauseates” God. The term conveys extreme hatred. Thus it is better to remain silent than to have lying lips.

2 Timothy 4: 1-5: “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom; Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all long-suffering
and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers, and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” The foundation of any ministry is God’s word. Preaching God’s truth is a sacred and demanding task, requiring perseverance and courage. Be ready means to ‘take a stand.’ People ‘turn their ears’ to avoid truth. True spiritual growth occurs over a period of time, through consistent teaching and application of God’s Word.

Psalm 111: 10 – “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments.” The fear of the LORD describes an obedient response of wonder and awe before the Most High God.

Hebrews 10:26, 27 – “For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.” The reference here to sin willfully is not an occasional act of sin (which can be confessed and forgiven) but a conscious rejection of God. The Old Testament speaks in Numbers 15:30, 31 of committing willful sin. If a Christian rejects God’s provision for his or her salvation, there is no other remedy for sins, since forgiveness of sins can only be found in Christ’s perfect sacrifice.

After Jesus had fasted for 40 days and was tempted by the devil he began his ministry in Galilee. We pick up the text in Mark 1: 14, 15 – “Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.'” Jesus proclaimed the kingdom of God. It was the subject of much Old Testament prophecy, and the theme was familiar to Jesus’ listeners. Repent, and believe are both acts of faith. When a person accepts the only true and worthy object of faith , that person readily turns from inferior substitutes.

The scripture today is totally about our Creator!
Psalm 148: 1-5: “Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise Him in the heights! Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him all His hosts! Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light! Praise Him, you heavens of heavens, and you waters above the heavens! Let them praise the name of the LORD, for He commanded and they were created.” All of the universe is called to boast of the wonder of God. Keep Him first in your life as you go about your business this weekend – stay safe – have fun and be Blessed!

Ecclesiastes 5: 2-5: “Do not be rash with your mouth, and let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; therefore let your words be few. For a dream comes through much activity, and a fool’s voice is known by his many words. When you make a vow to God, do not delay to pay it; for He has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you vowed – better not to vow than to vow and not pay.” The contrast between God’s righteous might and our sinful nature should cause us to revere the Almighty. One should not attempt to bribe God with a hasty vow, because a vow is a commitment to show one’s love for the Lord.
