God Is Not Unreasonable

“The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.  For He knows how weak we are; He remembers we are only dust.”   PSALM 103:13-14
 
God is not unreasonable.  He knows our weaknesses and how we are made.  That means that when He commands us to do something, He will also help us to do it.  He knows we can’t obey on our own.  How wonderful that the creator of the universe understands us!


Concentrate on the Eternal Things

“So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”  2 Corinthians 4:18

It is easy for us to be discouraged by the troubles around us.  But I have good news.  They are only temporary.  They will pass, but our salvation and our fellowship with Jesus will last forever.  Concentrate on the eternal things.



Sin is Sin

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness.”  Isaiah 5:20
 
More and more we see what the Bible calls sin, celebrated as good.  At the same time, Biblical standards are called hateful and evil.  In many segments of society and even in some churches, the truth of God’s word is not only ignored, it is despised.  More than ever, we must let His Word guide our hearts and lives.


Has He Saved You?

“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.”

1 Timothy 1:15

There are those who think that Jesus came to show us how to live or to teach us about God.  He did, but that was not the main reason He came.  All that would be useless if He didn’t save us by dying on the cross and raising from the tomb.  So the only question is-Have you let Jesus save you?  I didn’t ask if you believe that He existed or if you think He was a great teacher.  Has He saved you?  After all, that’s the reason He came.
