When man loosens the reigns of God

When man begins to loosen the reigns of God on his life, all kinds of evil are possible.  This is the very point made in Romans 1 and II Peter 2 & 3.

We finished up Peter today.  So powerful and relevant.  The tools of our mind, whereby we form rational thought, are the words of language.  Jesus is the word spoken at creation by whom all things were made and exist. Language is a gift from the creator which allows us the ability to think, understand and communicate with He who is logic.

Legislated "Grace" Eliminates the Basis of Grace

The words of Christ are the mantra of those who graciously give.

Acts 20:35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

They are the bases of the Gospel. Christ gave so that we might live and know His name is above all names. He was not forced to give.  He gave willingly. It was his offering for us. The Father elevated His name due to this voluntary sacrifice.  Therefore, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Him.

To Be, or To Do?

Following Christ is being, not doing.

1 Peter 1:15-16
“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”

One can "do good" and still not be a follower of Christ. A true follower of Christ does good because of his being like Christ. The result is automatic.

 

Glorify God by Being a Blessing!

Blessing others is our role as believers.  Christ called the disciples to feed the thousands in order to teach them the principle of being good stewards of the untold riches of God’s grace.  How can you be a good steward? 

The steward is often unbiblically characterized as one who wisely withholds and saves.  This is the antithesis of biblical stewardship.  The evil steward was judged for this very action.

Vested Talents

We all have talents.  Some, are yet undiscovered.  God, who gave us those talents, is the key to their discovery and use.  Making ourselves available to His use is the first step.  Why would He divulge hidden potential to those who would abuse and misuse it for selfish goals?  It is interesting to note that the reason the “Steward” lost his talent was because he hoarded it. Those who were rewarded, were rewarded for their surrender to the master’s purpose for the talents given.
