theWord: Have a great weekend my friends and ponder these wise words from Ecclesiastes 5:2,3 – “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.”

A song from Psalm 66: 1-4: “Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth! Sing out the honor of His name; make His praise glorious. Say to God, ‘How awesome are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power Your enemies shall submit themselves to You. All the earth shall worship You and sing praises to You; they shall sing praises to Your name.'” AMEN!

The apostle Peter and the disciples were collected by the captain of the guard along with his officers and brought before the governing body of the time in Jerusalem, for preaching and teaching about Jesus Christ publicly. Acts 5:27-29: “And when they brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest asked them, saying, ‘Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!’ But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: ‘We ought to obey God rather than men.'” This happened around 60 A.D. Here we are 1,955 years later fighting the same fight. Our government has turned it’s back on God, our schools are being forced to turn their back on the LORD. It is up to us, as individual Christians, to keep this fight alive – daily – in every aspect of our lives. Jesus Christ will be preached!

1 John 1: 8, 9: “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Deception is the devil’s tool, i.e. we are not sinners. The truth is God’s revelation, which says just the opposite. To have no sin is to have no need of a Savior, which would make the coming of Jesus unnecessary. God says that we are sinners in need of forgiveness. To confess is to agree with Him, to admit that we are sinners in need of His mercy. When a believer confesses his or her sins to God, He will cleanse all unrighteousness from that person. Forgiveness and cleansing are guaranteed because God is faithful to His promises.

Galatians 2:20: ” I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live , but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” The apostle Paul and every believer were crucified with Christ in order to die to sin, the law, and ‘this present evil age.’ While believers live on physically, Christ also lives in us spiritually . Christ’s resurrection power through the Spirit is worked out through the Christian who chooses to live by faith in the Son of God.

Jesus states in John 10:9 – “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” Our knowledge of Jesus, with our repentance from sin, and the willingness to go through Him is the door to eternal salvation. He is the good shepherd who gives spiritual life and access to spiritual food. Walk though this door while it is still opened; for I tell you this my friends, this door is closing as the good news is being preached throughout the world. When that happens the door will be closed. You will knock but there will be no answer.

Ephesians 5: 15, 16 – “See then that you walk circumspectly not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” To walk circumspectly is to step gingerly. We should watch our path to avoid contact with undesirable influences. Redeeming the time means taking advantage of opportunities for service. We each have a limited amount of time on this earth. Paul encourages us to use as much of that time as possible for advancing Christ’s purposes in this world.
