Ezekiel 18: 32

"For I take no pleasure in anyone's death,' this is the declaration of the Lord God. 'So repent and live." ~ (Ezekiel 18: 32)

It was our sin Father, each and every one of us, that nailed Your Son to that cross. Praise Jesus for giving us another chance. Amen.

Discipline!

Hebrews 12:7a
"It is for discipline that you endure..."

"DIG IN & REFINE THOSE AREAS OF NEEDED GROWTH!"

"WE ARE ALL IN THE PROCESS OF BEING TRANSFORMED INTO THE IMAGE OF CHRIST!"

"EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US!"

"THEREFORE, ALLOW THE PROCESS TO FULLY RUN IT'S COURSE IN YOUR LIFE!"

"AT THE END, IT WILL ALL HAVE BEEN WORTH IT!"

May the Lord bless you & enjoy your day!!!

2 Peter 3: 9

"The Lord does not delay His promise, as some understand delay, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish but all to come to repentance." ~ (2 Peter 3: 9)

Praise be to the Lord our God! Amen

Believer or Follower?

"NO ONE, BY VIRTUE OF BEING BORN-AGAIN IS AUTOMATICALLY A DISCIPLE!"

In John 8:31-32, Jesus said;
"If you abide in My Words, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Continuing to hold fast to God's Word throughout our lives is what separates believers from disciples!
(paraphrased from an excerpt by Josh McDowell)

Discipleship by definition is a "disciplined learner & follower."
(Believing is not enough, you must have an active faith that progressively demands growth!")

"DISCIPLES OF JESUS LEARN THINGS THAT SET THEM APART!"
"TRUE DISCIPLES STANDOUT AMONG THE CROWD!"

Question of the Day:
"DOES THE WORLD RECOGNIZE YOU AS A BELIEVER OR A FOLLOWER?

Matthew 3: 2

"Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." ~ (Matthew 3: 2)

"What is past is past, there is a future left to all men, who have the virtue to repent and the energy to atone."  ~ Edward Bulwer-Lytton

"COW's"

Hebrews 12:1
"Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us..."

"LET US FOLLOW THIS EXAMPLE!"

We have been surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses.
To our benefit, this has resulted in our spiritual growth.
But it has also given us the responsibility to be "COW's".
A "Cloud of Witnesses" to the future generations.

Today;
"LET US BE THE WITNESSES GOD INTENDED US TO BE!"
"LET YOUR FAITH CAST A BIG CLOUD OVER THE NEXT GENERATION!"
"BE JESUS' WITNESSES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD TODAY!"

He is Worthy!!!

Proverbs 14:2
"Whoever lives with integrity fears the LORD, but the one who is devious in his ways despises Him."

"IT CAN NOT GET ANY CLEARER THAN THIS!"

"THE BIBLE PAINTS A BLACK & WHITE PORTRAIT OF TRUE LOVE FOR GOD!"

"WE EITHER SERVE HIM OR WE DON'T!"

"WE EITHER FOLLOW HIM WITH OUR WHOLE HEART OR WE WITHDRAW FROM HIS PRESENCE!"

"GOD DEMANDS OUR OBEDIENCE!"
"NOT JUST BECAUSE HE CAN, BUT BECAUSE HE IS WORTHY!"
