I remember when I first kissed my wife, for I was on cloud nine. Immediately, my heart was full of love towards my future wife.
Since Jesus and the Father are both considered God, then to worship them both is good. It is good to worship the Father and Jesus, our Lord.
Only through God can we be safe in this life. Through Him and His Words, in the Bible, we can know what is truth and be led safely on His path, that leads to heaven.
There are many things in this life that people trust in but all these things are temporary and lead to destruction, apart from Jesus.
It is important to understand that “lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight.”
To know of God’s laws and disobey them anyways is to walk away from His will. To be in God’s ministry, we must put off the natural man.
What will save us in this life is our faith in Jesus Christ. It is this faith that compels us to forsake what is evil and come unto Him for a change of heart.
Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
Those that believe and love God don’t only say they believe, they obey the Lord’s commands by letting the Spirit of God lead them.
The Mormons don’t always mention the Joseph Smith Translation (JST) book, per say. However, they do reference it in all their KJV Bible’s.
Do not be deceived into following any teaching from a seducing spirit. Trust in God and read the Bible that you may not be led astray.
We are to “watch and be sober”. Understand that the night crowd can easily lead you astray, so stay vigilant and go to bed when it is night.
The Bible makes it clear how we can know how to live and act for God. He teaches us to “take fast hold of instruction” and “let her not go” but keep it.
If we are to believe that we know God personally, then we are also living in His will. There is a conviction “that we know him, if we keep his commandments.”
The knowledge we gain from God is worth every penny. “For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.”
If your focus is on God, you won’t help it but desire to live by His laws. By doing so, you are showing your trust in Him above all else.
Hearing the Father speak to our hearts is vital to our salvation. How can we even think that we are saved if the Lord is not with us?
If you believe that you are saved and will go to heaven, then search your heart to see if you are for God.
To gain knowledge, we must first understand the meaning of fear. We learn that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.”
We learn from Psalms that praise is the way of a Christian believer. We no longer sit with our beliefs and do nothing.
Many false teachings can come into a church, when new “so-called” revelation begins to override what the Bible teaches.
Because the Lord knows us and loves us so much, He also has prepared a way for us to find true happiness. Those that discover the Lord, are healed from all their sins.
The Lord is the giver of all things good. His love is like nothing I’ve ever experienced. He has offered me and you His living water, that we may not thirst.
Those whose hearts are closed off to God’s will, in their life, are on a slippery slope to hell. Unless they open their hearts to God, they will surely die in their sins.
If you are in the faith and are living for God, then you can see His mercy and kindness for your life.
The last half of this chapter helps us remember what the Lord has done for us. Speaking of the Lord Jesus, “who remembered us in our low estate”.
We by saved by grace, through faith, and not of our own good works, “lest any man should boast.” It is so important that we humble ourselves before God.
Let the Lord convict you of your sins. Cry unto God and ask for forgiveness. May these desires lead you to pray often and seek God’s hand in your life.
God’s hand is in people’s lives today. This is the reason why Christianity is so strong. Look at the Bible and what God’s Word has done.
The Bible teaches that the blood of Jesus is vital to our salvation. Our sins can be covered, because of the cross.
