When it Comes to Reflecting

We would rather focus on anybody other than our own self
but our spirit commands us to self reflect.
We would rather fix all the things wrong with the world
but our spirit makes us incorruptible instead.

How hard do we make it for another to change their heart
when they know we count faults and do not forgive?
And when fault is come to turn toward us
how hard now has it become for them to forgive us?
In all of that strife there is only iniquity and misery.
There is no victory in shaming one another.

How do two stubborn people end their quarrel?
With striving pain and affliction of anger and hatred.
Endure through all things with patience and understanding.
Nothing is ever solved without the will to love and forgive one another.

These greatest truths all come from Jesus.

Matthew 7:3

1Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. 6Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Husband and Wife with God

A husband is called to submit to this world for his wife

He will submit himself to face all of the storms of the world

And he will gladly keep his wife sacred and pure through it all

At all times he will be gentle and patient

He will be sincere and growing wise in his love for her

And only God is more sacred to a good man than his wife

Put no others before her and especially none before God

 

A wife is called to submit to her husband through Jesus

She will not submit herself to the storms of the world

And she will gladly honor her husband and never seek to shame him

She will be gentle and patient as he for her

Being sincere and growing wise in her love with him

And only God is more sacred to a good woman than her husband

Put no others before him and especially none before God.

 

Know that these things do not happen without faith in each other.  You are sinners and the world is of the devil, so you will need to know forgiveness of great magnitude if there is any hope for you.  Those who love God will love one another as well.  Having the desire to love God is key to recognizing why Jesus was sent for you.

 

 

The Unworthy Ruler

If you are ruled
you are measured.
And a ruler can only measure you by it’s own dimensions.
How often you are measured
Is equal to the desire to rule in this world…

But the ruler is not worthy to measure you or the world.

We have a good gardener

We have a good shepherd

And if you know it

then you know the measurement of the ruler to be untrue.

 

Did you sell your stuff or your self?

Beware the influence of the blissful in this world

where sweet lies are sold at high prices

and the value of painful truths go unrecognized.

Are they Serving Another Master?

The commandments are fought over by people who do not know your word

and many are murdered in the name of the commandments

despite the commandments to love one another

and to not murder one another.

The children want to sing, shout and spray the word

but do not want to live it.

They want to be chosen and receive power over nations

but know nothing of humbling themselves before  you.

They are eager to condemn the ones who stumble on their way

because their faith hinges on social condemnation.

This is no different than the Roman Empire.

How much like their Father are they?

Do they walk in His way?

Or are they serving another master?

 

Dear God,

I repent for allowing this world to convince me

that you are something other than what you are.

I repent for taking their word for it, before seeking the word you gave to me.

The word which many people died to preserve.

I thank you for sending the Holy Spirit and the Spirit of Truth through Jesus

otherwise there is no salvation in this world.

Thank you for allowing me to receive the bread you send to your children.

Let every step I make be of your will

so that I might see your glory more everyday.

 

If Jesus Reads it With You

It is hard to get through the Old Testament.

That is a common reaction when trying to read the Bible.

It may help to read Matthew first.

Then invite Jesus to read the entire Bible with you.

Look at it with Grace.

We do not read the Word of God.

We ask the Word of God to guide us

when reading the Bible

and in every moment of our life.

Jesus is The Word of God.

Relating to Jesus

If not for Jesus, I do not know who I would want to relate to in this world.

I can’t express how thankful I am that He exists.

And He knew I would know this world is wicked

and that His message would be defiled even by the Church.

When in doubt, just go to Jesus for the answer.

And let His Word be the standard for all the apostles

never the other way around.
