WHEN FOOTBALL BECOMES YOUR GOD (Self-Check)…

We often think we don’t worship idols because we don’t serve some golden calf. We may be serving an idol, even if we don’t think so! Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy!

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-image-634091789Exodus 20:3 (NKJV)

“You shall have no other gods before Me.

Let me first say this is NOT a condemnation of football. I enjoy football. I enjoy playing and I enjoy watching. But, the purpose of this article is for my fellow Christians who enjoy football to give themselves a self-examination…

2 Corinthians 13:5 (NKJV)

Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.

I’m talking about going beyond enjoying football to loving it. I’m talking about going beyond loving it to allowing it to become your God.

How? At what point?


Football may have become your God when…


You put regularly going to or watching games before going to worship (whether you worship on Saturday (College) or SONday (Professional)…

Hebrews 10:25 (NKJV)

25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves…

How We Handle the Journey Will Determine the Destination

A lifetime is how long we have to determine where our eternity is spent. Clear, direct thoughts here from Marques Jeffries. Comments closed here. Blessings and enjoy!

Overcoming The Times

Brothers and sisters, death cannot be avoided by exercise, diet, meditation, pills, surgery, or the next genetic discovery, or anything else.

Today many are uncertain (some don’t care) about their eternal destination. Some speculate that because that they have not committed a major crime, (murder, robbery, etc),they are good enough for Heaven. Sadly, I tell you, their own hearts are deceiving them:

According to the Bible, the human heart is the most deceitful.

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked; who can know it.

The sin problem we have, must be dealt with:

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Each one of us have at some point in this life, turned away from God and done what we wanted to do.

Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep, have gone astray; we have turned, everyone, to his own…

Bible Verses about being Children of God

Enjoy this great collection of Bible verses from Heather. Comments closed here. Blessings and enjoy!

Heather C. King - Room to Breathe

  • Mark 5:34 ESV
    And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”
  • John 1:12 ESV
    But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God
  • Romans 8:14-17 ESV
    For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons[f] of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
  • Galatians 3:26 ESV
    for in Christ…

All of One Mind

Good thoughts here from Workhorse for Christ. Comments closed here. Blessings and enjoy!

Workhorse (Adam)

1 Peter 3:8, “Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous.”

The state of the world is this: not of one mind.  In a world where there should be tons of love, there is hate and ignorance.  There are glimmers of love here and there.  There are times of people joining together for a cause.  Most of the time, however, there are times where people want to do their own thing.  Be off on their own.  Not caring about others.  We need to all be of one mind

All of you be of one mind.  One mind means several minds all on the same page in the same book.  To go further, it means on the same word on the same line on the same page on the same book.  Every person should be able to accomplish this…

“PRAYING IN JESUS NAME”

Good thoughts on prayer here from Alvin. Comments closed here, head over and share your thoughts. Blessings and enjoy!

So very alvin

Prayer in Jesus’ name is taught inJohn 14:13-14, “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” Some misapply this verse, thinking that saying “in Jesus’ name” at the end of a prayer results in God’s always granting what is asked for. This is essentially treating the words “in Jesus’ name” as a magic formula. This is absolutely unbiblical.

Praying in Jesus’ name means praying with His authority and asking God the Father to act upon our prayers because we come in the name of His Son, Jesus. Praying in Jesus’ name means the same thing as praying according to the will of God, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he…

Twisted Tuesday – What We Deserve

Next time you are going on about not getting what you deserve, think twice. Great thoughts here from Biblical Beginnings Blog. Comments closed here, so go pay a visit. Blessings and enjoy!

Biblical Beginnings

There is a pervasive lie that is constantly, boldly proclaimed from pulpits all over America. You hear it every time you turn on Christian TV. You find it typed in a million different ways throughout social media. What is this lie? The lie is that what you, and I, really deserve…no…what God owes us…is happiness.

This lie is a falsehood of the worse kind. It plays on humanities most deprived instincts, at the same time refuting everything the Bible says about mankinds wickedness.

What is the truth? That you, and I, deserve to be judged by a righteous judge whom we have sinned against. You see, friends, we have turned what is good evil and what is evil we have made good. If God is a righteous judge full of justice then the only thing He can do to law breakers is to convict them. When we disregard the miraculous…

God: knows the words already…

Psalm 19:14 (KJV) “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”

In this life we have much to say and as a matter of fact the practice we have gotten into is to be say stuff then apologize for what we have said, especially when they cause serious offences against others.

The Psalmist penned the words beseeching the Lord that the words he spoke and even before they emerge from his mouth and swirl around in his heart that they just might be acceptable to HIM.

Words have power to hurt and cut deep and at times when we say them, we just wish that they might not have been said.

With that said, let our words encourage and build up, correct and restore. We also have been…

I press on

HOPE

I press on

I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14 – (New American Standard Bible)

When my strength is seeping faster than I can walk

When it does not make sense to try anymore

When logic says it is OK to let it go

When no one is  watching or , when no one notices or even cares

When the only eyes on me are Yours

When friends give their green light for me to go ahead and throw in the towel

When no one else knows the details of the story apart from You and myself

When doing the right thing will only rock the boat more fiercely

When my opponents make offers and are calling for a truce

When it is just easier to take the money and run

When fighting for the truth…
