James through Jude
|It is Saturday this morning and I have my Men's meeting soon. It cannot write much and I always wish I had more time to type. Here are a few thoughts:|
1) DOWN IS UP- James 4:10 says: "Humble yourselves in the sight of the LORD, and he shall lift you up." In God's economy, to lower yourself is to have yourself lifted up.... By the Lord Jesus Christ! Keep low friend.
2) INCORRUPTIBLE SEED- 1 Peter 1:23 "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever." The Word of God is incorruptible seed. God inspired His Word and preserved His Word. That is why I don't get the Bible of the month, and stick with the ole King James Bible. I believe God used it as the translation for the English World. I believe it's text is what God would have used around the world in all languages. It is not corrupted, it is pure. It sure speaks to my heart!
3) In I John, the word "know" is used 27 times, and "knoweth" is used 6 times. Here are just a few: 1 John 2:3 "And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments." 1 John 3:14 "We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death." 1 John 3:24 "And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us." 1 John 4:13 "Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit." 1 John 5:13 "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."
Well, I hope you KNOW these things too! Hope you have a great day and have a great day at Church tomorrow! Pastor Mike Mutchler
