Useful Agility


Let’s suppose a man who knows absolutely nothing about mathematics. Let’s give him two apples. Now he knows that he has more than one. There’s an apple in each hand.

Let’s give him one more apple. Now he knows he has more apples then his two hands can hold. Tell him he has three apples. See how he has learned something about mathematics.

I know. That’s a really stupid scenario. But isn’t it true that the more the man learns the more useful he will become?

But how many people think they are righteous yet can’t seem to do the simplest righteous task? Consistent righteous behavior seems to run away from them like it’s afraid. While they should be adding to their agility in righteousness every day, they can’t maintain a single one.

To make yourself agile in mathematics refer to a textbook. To understand the nature of righteousness read the Bible.

Pretending Means Nothing


You cannot be a rich man simply because you know rich men exist. You cannot be a hero simply because you know there are men who are heroes.

It is hideously foolish to boast of something we are not. And simply because our ancestors and friends were something, it does not make us so.

You cannot be something while what you own is nothing. The tally never lies. Those who can’t count can be fooled. But there is One who counts perfectly.

You cannot be a blazing Christian unless your soul is blazing with the things of the Lord God Almighty. At best you can only be a decent citizen of this world.

The judgment of God never sleeps. He knows those who are his. He knows what kind of people they are, for he has made them so. He knows what they endure. He knows those who struggle for his Holy sake.

We can say anything we want about ourselves. Truth either bears witness for us or stands as a mighty wall against us.

Prime time to make a proper assessment.

Vegas Everywhere


Vegas, is there some mystically important to that geographical place? They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

I’ve got news for everyone, what happens anywhere in this world accompanies us to the throne of the Most high God. Not one particle of dust in this world will offer us immunity, no matter what we call it and no matter where it is.

If you want immunity, live the life of Christ.

8. “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9. Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning, and your joy to gloom. 10. Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.”

Christ is not a box to be checked. He is a life to be lead.

He IS


Consider the Lord Jesus.

From the beginning the Living God spoke Living words.

This is the Lord Jesus, the Christ of God.

He IS.

Consider His testimony among us. Faithful,

He IS.

His crucifixion is not what He was.

He IS.

The machine of our sin had no hold on Him. From the Living God,

He IS.

Of the Living God,

He IS!
