Hebrews 12:14 (KJV)


Hebrews 12:14 states, "Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord."

This verse teaches that in order to "see the Lord" we must be Holy. The only way to be holy is to have God's Spirit living in our hearts and directing our lives. However, this verse also teaches that promoting peace is related to Holy living. Although our Holiness comes from God, there is always something for us to do. Actively seeking peaceful relationships and resolutions to conflict is part of "Living Holy". The enemy of our soul desires us to have continual conflict and strife. This week recognize the enemy when he tries to bring conflict in your life and remember to follow peace with all men.

In Matthew 5:9 we read, "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."

2 Timothy 2: 19-21 (KJV)


"Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.  If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work."  2 Timothy 2: 19-21

Love


St. John 15: 12-14 states, "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you."

There truly is no greater love than the love that Jesus Christ showed when he gave his life on the cross of Calvary.  This sacrifice was given so that each one of us could be filled with God's love. Today, let God's love rule in your heart and mind.

Where Does God Dwell?


From the beginning of creation, God wanted fellowship and to dwell with mankind.  This is evident from the account in the book of Genesis where God had regular communication with Adam and Eve.  This fellowship soon ended because of Adam and Eve’s disobedience which began the separation between sinful man and a Holy God.  However, because of His great love and mercy, God slowly began to reach out to man through Abraham, Moses, and others.  He even began to temporarily dwell with his people by His presence in the Tabernacle in the Wilderness and in Solomon’s Temple. 

God then showed his great love by coming to earth and dwelled with us as Jesus Christ.  While here, he showed us how to live and demonstrated his love and compassion.  Ultimately he gave his life as the sacrifice that allows us to be saved from Sin by his presence dwelling in our hearts.  So where does God dwell today?  He dwells with those who seek him with all of their heart!

Jeremiah 29:13 - "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."

Ephesians 2:21-22 - "In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:  In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit."

Be Strong in the Grace


The Apostle Paul instructed Timothy, his son in the faith, to “be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus”. Paul knew that Timothy would face many challenges and much persecution in his ministry for Jesus Christ. He encouraged Timothy to “endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ”, and to avoid entangling “himself with the affairs of this life”. Paul said that God had stood with him even when all men had forsaken him, and that God had delivered him from “the mouth of the lion” in his own ministry. He knew that Timothy would need God’s divine assistance to live a sanctified life and to succeed in his ministry.

The good news for us today is that we have a loving, Heavenly Father who wants to help his children. God invites us “to come boldly unto His Throne of Grace, so that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need”. This grace to help certainly applies to our salvation, but also applies to other needs that we encounter in this life after we are sanctified by the Holy Ghost. God instructs us to cast all of our care upon Him because he cares for us, loves us, and wants to bring his divine assistance into our everyday life situations.

Take your burdens and concerns to God’s throne today through prayer, knowing that God’s grace will be sufficient for you, and that His strength is made perfect in your weakness.
