Ecclesiastes 11: 5,6: “As you do not know what is the way of the wind, or how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child, so you do not know the works of God who makes everything. In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening do not withhold your hand; for you do not know which will prosper, either this or that, or whether both alike will be good.” Some works of God defy explanation. Do not hold back from getting involved. Let the success or failure of a task rest in the hand of God – but get to the task! Looks like a scorcher for the weekend – plenty of sun screen by the pool – be safe brothers and sisters and thanks for sharing theWord.

Psalm 34: 8,9: “Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.” The task of Israel was to attract the nations to their God. For their faithfulness to Him, God had promised to bless them abundantly, and when the nations saw this blessing they would see that the living God was with them. Fear is a call to awe, wonder, worship, and reverence. To fear God is to respond to Him in piety and obedience.

Romans 8:1,2: “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” No condemnation: in Christ, we are no longer under the sentence of the law, but empowered by the Spirit to live for Christ. “The law of the Spirit” the Spirit refers to the Holy Spirit who energizes our renewed spirit.

In Matthew Jesus tells us “Therefore I say to you, do now worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on.” King Solomon says it all in one sentence in Proverbs 27:1 – “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.” As Jesus did in his teaching, the wise of ancient Israel warned about a concern for tomorrow that overshadows the needs of today.

Psalm 119: 1,2: ” Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD! Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart!” The Hebrew word torah, translated law, basically means instruction or direction. It was God’s instructions to Moses for the prophets and the people. The Law was never designed as a means of salvation; no one could be saved by keeping it.The LORD had already established a covenant relationship with Israel. Instead, the Law was the means for the Israelites to learn how to live as God’s holy people.

It was winter in Jerusalem, around the Feast of Dedication and Jesus walked into the temple. WE pick up the narrative in John 10: 24-30: “Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, ‘How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.’ Jesus answered them, ‘ I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.”‘ Jesus reminded the Jewish leaders of His words and works. Jesus was the Messiah and said so. His works include all the miracles He performed as signs pointing to His messiahship.
Jesus described three characteristics of His sheep: they hear His voice, they follow Him, and they shall never perish. Jesus explains He and the Father are one thus His Jewish opponents understood that Jesus was claiming to be God. Enjoy your weekend brothers and sisters – love one another openly – share your feelings – we never know when the hammer is gonna drop on us..make the most of each day!

Proverbs 3: 1,2: “My son, do not forget my law, but let your heart keep my commands; for length of days and long life and peace they will add to you.” Law and commands are words that draw attention to the connection between wisdom and the Law of Moses. The proverbs are an application of the law. This advice provides direction in time of troubles, brings us the peace that only Christ can give in order to deal with every day issues.
