The Speech of God

16

My son give me your heart and let your eyes observe my ways – Proverbs 23:26

My son, give me your heart – This is the speech of God to every human soul; give your affections to God, so as to love him with all of your heart, soul, mind, & strength.

And let your eyes observe my ways – Be obedient to me in all things. My son, thou believest that I Am, and that I Am the Fountain of all good. Give me your heart; it is I alone who can make you happy. Follow me; do what is right in my sight.

This exhortation contains three words: Believe, Love & Obey. This is the sum of God’s counsels to every child of man.

“Fall not into the grip of evil desires, lest like fire, it will consume your strength. Your leaves it will eat, your fruits it will destroy, and you will be like a dry withered tree. For contumacious (willful & perverse desires) destroys its owner and makes him the sport of his enemies”- Sirach 6:2-4, 1 Timothy 7:10

The hope of our suffering

Earthly suffering (sickness, injury, natural disaster, betrayal, financial loss, loneliness, persecution, poverty, hunger, and death) is not an eternal reality. For our momentary light affliction is producing in us an eternal weight of glory (beyond all measure and proportion) Therefore lets boast about the strength of Christ working in us during our afflictions. For such afflictions produces the much needed fruit of endurance (the power of bearing an unpleasant and difficult process or situation without giving way) – Evg. Samuel Meesala

Sin

Sin has no place in the life of a true believer. Should a believer fall or slip into sinful nature, he or she should carefully & prayerfully eradicate it; For sin ruins our communion with God & produces moral impairment and death ( spiritual & eternal death-1 John 5:18; Romans 6:23)-Evg. Samuel Meesala

Followers of Jesus Christ

Those who delight in piety and are determined to live a devoted and godly life in Christ Jesus will meet with persecution & will be made to suffer because of their faithful stand. For If they persecuted Jesus, they will also persecute us. Remember no servant is greater than His master – 2 Timothy 3:12 ; John 15:20 AMP11138160_1095206223829473_5382763314725568822_n

The Blood of Jesus

I (Jesus) by no means will clear the guilty; I will visit the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. Therefore come, let us settle this matter of sin (missing the mark set by God), iniquity ( intentionally disobeying God even after possessing the knowledge of truth & evil) & transgression ( continually sinning without repentance or fear of the Lord) says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. For I have shed my blood for the forgiveness of your many sins, transgressions & iniquities. Exodus 34:6-7, Isaiah 1:18, Mathew 26:28,

Whoever attacks them does it without my consent; whoever fights against you will fall. For no weapon will be able to hurt you. I (Jesus) will defend my servants and my people.
