It is pointless to profess faith in Christ, and disregard his word, and dishonor his precepts.
He is the word, and his the word is him!
The two great commands are to love God with all your heart, mind, soul, strength and loving others as yourself.
It is self-evident that we do all things within the confines of the self. To love God is to love ourselves, and to love ourselves is to love God. We are a reflection of God, created in his image and likeness, we are.
Loving others is loving God. Your neighbor reflects God and is the bearer of his divine nature; love him as you would God, love him as you would yourself.
God the eternal chooses to make his abode in us. We are his temple, in which he is glorified. In him, we exist and have our being. We were in him before the creation, chosen and set apart for his purpose and glory.
Let love be the cords that bind us now and forevermore.
Inspired by: Matthew 16:15-20,1 Corinthians 6:19 and Psalm 133:1
- The Church is not an organization or a function we attend. It is a people; it is who we are.
- The Temple is not a place or a building. It is you, all of you; Mind body and soul.
- Worship is not mere words; it is a lifestyle.
How good and pleasant it is for brethren and sistren to live together in love and unity. The gates of hell shall not prevail against such fellowship. Therefore, live to the glory of your God seated on His thrown at the center of His Temple.
Inspired by: Hebrews 4:12, John 3: 16 – 2, Romans 2: 13 & John 6: 63
The word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints, and marrow; it judges the thoughts, intentions, and attitudes of the heart.
When we hold up the word of God as a testimony, one of two things has already happened.
If we are living in obedience to its teachings, then we have been liberated. Set free from the condemnation, it describes in its pages. But if we are not living by its precepts, we are already condemned.
So hold the Bible aloft; it is the Word of God; it is the Spirit that gives life.
Inspired by: 1 Timothy 6:12, 2 Corinthians 10: 3 – 5, Ephesians 6: 12 & Philippians 2:10-11
I will fight the good fight of faith, to which You called me so that I might lay hold on eternal life.
My beef is not with my fellow man, but with evil philosophies and political and religious ideologies that govern over the injustices and cruelties of this world. I am at war with spiritual forces that are at work in high and low places.
You, God, have equipped me for this fight with weapons for the tearing down of ideological strongholds, and political biases, that place expediences above the people it serves. Your word is quick and powerful for the reproofing of opinions that are in opposition to the knowledge of You, bringing every thought into obedience to You.
I know I do not fight in vain as every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess You as Lord.
