Made Known

Luke 12:2 2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Matthew 10:26 So do not be afraid of them. For there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, and nothing hidden that will not be made known. Mark 4:22 For there is nothing hidden [...]

Measured response.

James 4 6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” I learned about mercy and grace about three or so years ago. If you want grace and mercy for your own mistakes, you pray for grace and mercy for others around you. Matthew 7:2 [...]

A Measured Response

James 2 10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 12 [...]

Bear Fruit

Luke 13 13 There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had [a]mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? 3 I tell you, no; [...]

It’s just food.

Romans 14 14 I know and am convinced by the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean of itself; but to him who considers anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean. 15 Yet if your brother is grieved because of your food, you are no longer walking in love. Do not destroy with [...]

I’m using the biggest measuring cup I can find.

Romans 14 12 So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. 13 Therefore let us not judge one another [d]anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way. You will not be able to point to someone else when you [...]

Praying as a group.

Matthew 18 19 “Again[d] I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” I know people [...]

Seek First the Kingdom

Romans 8 12 Therefore, brothers and sisters we have an obligation – but not in the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.” New King James: 12 [...]

That proper fear.

Acts 19:17 This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18 And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. 19 Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and [...]

Stay salty my friends

Paul told us to let our conversations be seasoned with salt. Col 4:6 “Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” What does salt do? It adds flavor. So we should add flavor to the conversation. And one of the best ways is [...]
