Good morning, sleepyhead.
Going into Monday with everything we need from the weekend. We’re highlighting clips from Brother Nobles’ message Saturday night in case you missed it. You’re welcome 🙂
Two Different Things
“God understands our sin” does not mean God approves of our sin. He can execute judgment over a period of years or right on the spot. Pray for our vision to be clearer, expanded. Don’t take our revelation for granted. Ask God’s forgiveness to keep our heart pure.
Never forget: Sin = Death.
Nobody Wants To Eat Their Vegetables Anymore.
(Are we cutting out unhealthy things that weaken our spiritual soul, or are we eating whatever we want that’s good to the carnal nature?)
Who or what is on the receiving end of our sacrifices?
Jobs, careers, hobbies, or worldly desires? Do we make that same kind of sacrifice for the Lord . . . for church? Whatever we sacrifice must be covered under His order. If it isn’t something He asked for, He’ll reject it. Be mindful that our sacrifices are not to be given in our own way and direction. God won’t accept them. Our sacrifice is to be sprinkled with frankincense, aka JOY.
When you feel restriction down in your heart, stand in the battle. Don’t let that restriction get lodged in your soul. Your right (spiritual) and left (carnal) sides—whichever side you stop sacrificing for, the other one wins.
Check out Hebrews 13:15-16, Ephesians 5:8-11, and 2 Corinthians 6:11-18.
You Probably Don’t Need Us To Tell You How This Turns Out
It’s time to get real and pray, “Lord, don’t let me lie to myself.”
If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth. –1 John 1:6
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. –1 John 1:7
When we put forth an effort to be at church services, in fellowships, and on teams, we are walking in the light.
You Can Write In Your Bible (Yes, Really)
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. –Acts 2:42
Get a pen (go ahead, we’ll wait). Circle the word STEDFASTLY.
Jesus can’t add to the church if we are hit and miss, in and out. He’s looking for people who are steadfast.
No matter how much you know about the Word—are you living up to what you do know? Let it be in our hearts to apply these things and walk in the spirit 🙂
