Living by the Sword…of the Spirit

Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. (Matt. 26:52) Jesus commanded Peter to put the sword in its place. Do you have the Word of God or the “Sword of the Spirit” in its rightful place? We obtain Eternal Life by that Sword, and our flesh is to “die daily” by that same Sword; cutting away carnality, yet being clothed in humility.

Preaching in a Frying Pan

Ser-minute 032811

Moreover take thou unto thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face against it…Eze. 4:3 – God called Ezekiel to preach his message to Israel into a frying pan! I know the faces of the unsaved may be intimidating when sharing the Gospel, almost like an “iron skillet,” but tell them anyway. The postage was paid at Calvary folks…you just need to deliver the mail!

No Success Without the Source

For in him we live, and move, and have our being – Acts 17:28 We all have hopes and dreams and we should. But, having those outside of God’s Divine Will is foolhardy. James teaches we “ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.” Success without the ONE who makes success possible isn’t success; it’s a ticking time bomb of misery and failure. It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves.

Put Postponed Promises in the Potter’s Hands

Ser-minute – 032111

The Psalmist declared, “I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Only the God of the universe could form man from clay and breath the breathe of life into him. What lifeless lumps of clay you thought were dilapidated dreams and postponed promises, will you allow God to breath new life into? Leave them on the wheel and let the POTTER perform His artistry. He said, “I will work…who will let me work?
