Lord God, mercifully receive the prayers of your people. Help us to see and understand the things we ought to do, and give us grace and power to do them; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
RUNNING AFTER WISDOM…
My true intentions are to love God. To me, this relationship is very intimate and personal… I truly want you to have this relationship with our Creator as well… I am loving the “unknown” path I am on, and I want to encourage you on your own path with our Lord Jesus Christ. May I share with you teachings by Him???
20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
Murder Begins in the Heart
21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. 23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. 26 Assuredly, I say to you, you will by no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny.
Adultery in the Heart
27 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
Marriage Is Sacred and Binding
31 “Furthermore it has been said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.
Jesus Forbids Oaths
33 “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’ 34 But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.
*raises hand* WHAT’s THIS???
I KNOW King Solomon (David’s son) prayed to God for wisdom… HOW SHOULD WE PRAY???
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
Please stop by this post throughout your week. I will be adding personal testimonies and scriptures to encourage you on your walk of faith. Thank you…
THEY ARE POSTED FOR THIS SIXTH WEEK AFTER THE EPIPHANY… ENJOY!!!
RUNNING AFTER WISDOM…
After reading the bible this morning…
I read this posted on a friends Facebook wall…
“People wait all week for Friday, all year for Summer, all life for Happiness…”
Now imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do?
Draw out every cent, of course! Each of us has such a bank. It’s name is TIME… Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds.
Every night it writes off as lost, what ever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposit, the loss is yours… There is no drawing against “tomorrow.” You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the upmost in health, happiness and success. The clock is running, so make the most of today, everyday!
I’M RUNNING AFTER THAT WISDOM!!!
THANK YOU GOD FOR TODAY.
This morning I went running… it was AWESOME!
May I please share with you what I was reading this morning???
Our brother Paul *the Apostle who wrote this* was tested time and time again by God… yet he remained obedient and spread the Word of the Lord in his walk with Jesus Christ :)…
CAN’T WAIT FOR SUNDAY.
If Paul was alive today, I would whisper to him…
“I’m not walk’n”
RUNNING AFTER WISDOM…
THANK YOU GOD FOR TODAY!!!
May I please share with you the Holy Gospel (Good News) written in the book of Matthew in the New Testament of our Bible…
*REMEMBER* The Red text symbolizes the words of Jesus Christ…
I am ready to learn… ARE YOU???
With God All Things Are Possible
23 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
25 When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”
26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
27 Then Peter answered and said to Him, “See, we have left all and followed You. Therefore what shall we have?”
28 So Jesus said to them, “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.
SERIOUSLY… THIS JESUS IS REALLY CONFIDENT… AWESOME!!! (truth rocks!)
