#worship People that well up with this gratitude, this heart of thanksgiving, they're not just doing it in church, they're declaring His glory among the nations. His marvelous deeds among all peoples. Is that a pattern of your life?
We ought to come to God with an attitude that recognizes his unmitigated authority in the universe and in our lives.
To have a healthy fear of God as believers is not a fear of him casting us into hell. It’s a fear of his discipline. It’s a fear of displeasing him. It’s the fear of the sheer authority of a great God that we should all stand in awe of.
God is the only one we SHOULD fear. Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.
If we really grasp grace, tell God He’s great. It needs to be what oozes out of our personality, that if we really know that we are nothing, bring nothing to the table in this deal but our sin, and God provides us generously with everything.
Understanding grace should take the focus off of us and put it thankfully and confidently on God!
We don’t serve God cause He needs to be served. We don’t serve God cause we’re paying Him back. We don’t come to God because we’ve earned our salvation. We don’t give as much as we can give and God supplements the rest. We give nothing. God gives everything. You oughta marvel.
God’s not only the creator, He’s the sustainer of life and is a reality that we need to come to grips with. And it’s a humbling reality, it strips me of all my pride, and it makes me realize I am nothing without God.
Everything, whether it’s Christian or non-Christian, there’s not one thing that happens, there’s not one non-Christian’s crop that grows, according to Christ, that God was not involved in that. He’s not only the creator, He’s the sustainer of life.
There’s lots of things we do in response to grace. But grace is all about God needing nothing, that’s the foundation of grace.
David had to come to grips with the reality that God needs nothing, and you need to realize that too. He is the all-sufficient, ever-eternal, dwelling, powerful omnipotent King and He needs nothing from you.
Christianity is incredible because God rewards and loves those He doesn’t need.
Focused time in the Bible is essential for every Christian because it is our objective, sufficient, unchanging and infallible source of truth and guidance from God.
Christians should give up all hopes of being “normal” and choose to be right & trust God for the rest.
God doesn’t want to steal your joy He wants to give you joy. And what kind of joy? Profound joy, secure joy, confident joy. And how can you have that? The only single way you can have that in your Christian life, is to know for sure that what you’re doing is biblical.
Sin is too costly to deal with gently. We must always deal with sin severely in our own lives.
God never intended relationships to be something we use. People aren’t things that we use. People are persons we love and that’s a huge difference.
Let’s talk a little bit about the coming of Christ to gain victory over your sin and death. I think that’s a lot bigger thing and I think it warrants a humanly-sanctioned celebration. #Christmas
In the long run all “power plays” are futile! God gives it, maintains it, and takes it back when he wants to.
Avoid the mistake of David. Don’t use relationships to gain power. Now there’s a difference between, “I know someone who may be able to help,” and “I need to get to know someone who can help me.” You understand the difference, don’t you?
