GRACE GEM

How He has loved you!
by Spurgeon--
Go measure the heavens with your span;
go weigh the mountains in the scales;
go take the ocean's water and calculate each drop;
go count the sand upon the sea's wide shore;
and when you have accomplished all of this,
then you can tell how much He loves you!

He has loved you long!
He has loved you well!
He will love you forever!


MY MANNA

When we neglect our relationship with Christ-
- our thoughts become influenced by our sinful human nature instead of being guided by the Holy Spirit. 

When we forget to draw on God’s power to lead our hearts-
- we quickly succumb to bad attitudes.

We become impatient and selfish. 
We whine when things do not go our way. 
We become dissatisfied with where God has placed us. 
We grumble against God’s will for our lives. 
We complain about other believers and our spiritual leaders.

How quickly we forget the joy of our salvation. 

When we accepted Chris…

Good Morning Brothers & Sisters! I have no idea yet as to whether the sun will shine today or not as it hasn't come up yet, but it will be a beautiful day today because it is another one the LORD has given me. I pray you all have the same feelings and that it will be a beautiful day for one and all!

"Not everyone kept the salt covenant. You can see in the verse in Ezekiel God's opinion about how Jerusalem broke a salt covenant. I have to work on expressing this message.
God's Love,

Mary Osborn replied to Mary Osborn's discussion Salt of the Earth in Discipleship
"Second time, I keep getting booted out of Explore, and it won't let me highlight and copy the information.
I didn't write it very well. Baby kings were salted and swaddled. For example Jesus Christ was salted and swaddled. That's awesome because He's King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Just because the kings were salted and swaddled, it doesn't mean they kept their word. Jesus Christ on the other hand told us the truth, and we can rely on Him.
God bless,
Mary"

http://www.theempoweredchristian.com/of-faith.htmlUse it or lose it! Faith in simple terms is a muscle and requires constant exercise for it to be effective in carrying and delivering heavier loads of manifestations. As an example, it is easy enough to believe to receive five dollars but this belief increasingly becomes a challenge when believing for amounts beyond a practical reach such as five million dollars.

Amanda Shannon commented on Dr. Derek P. Blake's blog post Introduction to the Torah in The Torah
"I'm so glad to read this and to see the two of you, Dr. Blake and Pastor Rolf, talking about it. I believe it's a very important topic, especially to new Christians but to all of us as well, and it's important to have the right understanding of legalism and grace.

Thomas Watson was an English Puritan and Preacher from the 1600s. I'm sure you are familiar with him. One of his oft quoted statements is, "He that can believe without doubting, suspect his faith, and he that can repent without sorrowing, suspect his repentance."

Anyway, I've recently been reading Thomas Watson's book, The Doctrine of Repentance.

In chapter 6, Watson talks about repentance as being a lifelong process. We need to confess and repent to be born again but also thereafter, as well, not to be saved over and over again, but to stay in fellowship with God and be cleansed.

He quotes Psalm 19:12, which I've quoted several times, too :) He says our sins "are like atoms in the sun, like sparks of a furnace." We…"

Amanda Shannon commented on Amanda Shannon's blog post Good works won't justify sins
"Thank you so much for reading and commenting! I agree wholeheartedly with what you've said. I know that many who aren't born again do what are termed as "good things" to do such as donating thousands to charities and helping orphans and third world countries, etc... But does God recognize these things as good works? This is something I've wondered about."

Dr. Derek P. Blake commented on Dr. Derek P. Blake's blog post Introduction to the Torah in The Torah
"As you say "Grace is needed in equal proportions", which I believe is what I stated. I certainly have not finished studying and researching the Torah yet, very from it, but I really am not legalistic and I am approaching this as a research project. I do feel that there is a connection between our obedience to God's law and our state of mind, physical condition and a wayward church. Under grace none of the curse of the law affects us, but it does depend on repentance, Jesus made that point several times. We need to confess our sins to God, not to some earthly false representative, when we do that God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins. So many churches have abandoned the principles of confess and repent, it's a modern sickness of the church. Or it becomes a pre-payment scheme that allows people to do as they will. God's limitless grace is dependent on that caveat, it is not a big thing but it is a part of out relationship with God, each of us."

Pastor Rolf Anderson commented on Dr. Derek P. Blake's blog post Introduction to the Torah in The Torah
"I believe we need to find a balance between the Law and Grace. Granted, the Law is very important, and to be followed or much spiritual damage and a hindered relationship with the Lord results, but the opposite also is true. Dwelling on the Law exclusively, being "legalistic" can also do great damage, like when a new Christian is bombarded with lists of do's and do not's and told this is the way to Jesus, when Grace is needed in equal proportions. Without God's limitless Grace and favor, we are like automatons following a book of rules, and the Lord gave us free will to avoid this."

Dr. Derek P. Blake commented on Dr. Derek P. Blake's blog post Introduction to the Torah in The Torah
"Thanks Rolf, I had a quick look in the group 'Jewish Cultural Discussions and Hebrew Instruction' but there didn't seem to be anything specifically about the Torah. The Spirit seems to be leading me on a journey at present and speaking to me greatly about the law. This has been going on for some time and has, in the way of the Spirit, been gathering momentum. The Laws of Moses are very much overlooked in today's church, most churches no longer feel that they are relevant, in light of the Gospel. I just feel that the Spirit is weeping over us abandoning the law, which many Christians have done, "Why do we need laws when we have the grace of God through Jesus?" they say, I have heard them here. We are new creations they claim, so we are not under the law. Without the law there can be no sin, and that is a comfortable place to be, but does that remove the repercussions of not obeying the law, what they call 'the curse of the law?'
So I really want to explore for myself what the To…"

Weekly Bible Verse

"And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory."                                 

                                     - Ephesians 1:13-14
