The Life to Come

Something to think about.

The Life to Come

1 A good name is better than precious ointment, And the day of death than the day of one’s birth; Ecclesiastes 7:1

The day of my death will be the best day of my life, for only then will I meet my saviour face to face.

To Him Who Is Able

Something to think about

To Him Who Is Able

“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:14, 16-21 NKJV

To be strengthened by the spirit of God in you, that Christ may dwell in your heart. That we might know the fullness of the love of Christ, That we might be blessed by the power of Christ working in us. That we might glorify Christ forever and ever.  Paul is praying that the manifestation Of God would be apparent in your life.

Prayer

Something to think about.

Prayer

34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34 (NIV)

After being scourged, humiliated,  insulted, abused, wrongfully accused and condemned He still prays for those who have committed this heinous act.  He did not ask God for justice, revenge, or their condemnation. He asks God to forgive them. Still He is asking God to do the same thing for us.

A Different Language

Something to think about.

A Different Language

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. John 14:26

If you don’t have the spirit of God you cannot understand God. The spirit of God speaks a language that only the spirit of God in you understands.

Before Time

Something to think about.

Before Time

even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love Ephesians 1:4 (ESV)

Can you wrap your brain around this one? He chose you before the beginning of time. To be holy before Him. And He did it because He loved you before He created you.

Patience

Something to think about.

Patience

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 2 Peter 3:9 (ESV)

It is not that God is slow in coming or has forgotten or lost interest in His creation. Rather, it is that He desires that no one should be lost. He wants to give everyone the opportunity to repent and be saved. He is patient because He is kind merciful and loving.
