Ephesians 5:8-10: "For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.ÃÂ Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord."ÃÂ The believer's position has changed from darkness (sin), to light (righteousness).ÃÂ As believers we are to change our walk to correspond to our position in Christ.ÃÂ Thanks for a lovely week brothers and sisters - enjoy your weekend!!
EFFORT AND REST - Come to me, talk to me, dwell with Me, and then you will know My Way is a sure way. My Paths are safe paths. Come very near to Me. Dig deep into the soil of the Kingdom. Effort and rest - a union of the two."
Psalm 50:1,2: "The Mighty One, God the LORD, has spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun to its going down. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God will shine forth." The Hebrew text uses the three forms the Mighty One, God, and the LORD as a stunning introduction to this poem. This language suggests a grand display of God Himself in the midst of His people. Out of Zion - the glory of God shines from His sanctuary in Jerusalem.
1 Thessalonians 5:23: "Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."Paul's prayer for the Thessalonians is that they may be sanctified in all aspects of their life, spirit, soul, and body. Every part of a Christian's life should bear evidence that he or she is set apart as holy to God. Paul exhorts the Thessalonians to express holiness in this life so that the Lord would approve of their conduct upon His return. The same holds true for all Christians.
PSYCHIC POWERS - "Psychic powers are not necessarily Spiritual Powers. Do not seek the spiritual through material means. Could you but see, it is weighing beautiful spirit-wings down with Earth's mud. Seek this time as a time of communion with Me - not as a time to ask questions, and have them answered. And meet Me in Communion. It is soul-food that I have provided. Do not expect a perfect Church, but find in a church the means of coming very near to Me. That alone matters, then the much, that is husk, falls away. Hold it of no account. Grasp the truth and find Me - the true Bread of Life. The lesson of the grain is the lesson of My Church and Me. The real life is all that matters, the outward Church is the husk; but the husk was necessary to present the life-grain to man."
