Psalms 84:10 For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. ESV #Bible
There is no better place to be than in the presence of God. Knowing that being there, all is right between you and God.
All of our sins have been dealt with by Jesus our Lord. We are forgiven the huge dept caused by our rebellious sins
We can enter in to the presence of God without fear or hesitation and sit at His feet and worship and learn from Him.
Outside is the wickedness of this world and all of those sins that so easily entangle us through the lust of our eyes, and the lust of our flesh.
Outside are all of those distractions and deceptions that when persued simply enslave us and wear us down and discourage us and keep us separated from our Holy Father God.
Even being a doorkeeper in the house of the Lord is majorly better than living in this wickedness and slavery to sin.
But we can enter in with free access into the throne room where our Father God and our Savior Jesus the Christ and our Holy Spirit reside to be worshiped in freedom.
Better one day in the courts of our God than a thousand in wickedness, oh yes.
14 But if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your heart, don’t brag and deny the truth. 15 Such wisdom does not come from above but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where envy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every kind of evil. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits, without favoritism and hypocrisy. (James 3:14-17 HCSB)
So how do we want to live our lives? Do we want to live in envy and jealousy, and ambition fueled by our selfishness?
The one thing in this life that is constant is our choice. We use the act of choice in the minute things, even in the decisions of our lifetimes.
Our ability to choose dictates the order and the happenings of our lives.
If we live in envy and selfish ambition, we are told this wisdom doesn’t come from above in God’s reality, but is earthly. Simply put it comes from our carnal nature, our flesh.
James goes on to say it is unspiritual and demonic. With it comes disorder and every kind of evil.
I understand to give in to this earthly wisdom is easy and can even feel natural, but when we look at the results of these choices we see only wreckage and bad consequences to our actions.
To consider God’s Wisdom from above we see James saying:
17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits, without favoritism and hypocrisy.
Isn’t that how we want to be treated and if so being treated this way, don’t we want to pass it on treating others this same way?
When we operate in the Wisdom of God our entire world changes, we find those around us reacting and returning this Godly wisdom back to us and others also.
It all comes down to our choice in how we want to live our lives.
So do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
With the help of Jesus as life goes on we will better perfect this Wisdom from God above delivered and demonstrated by Jesus our Lord for a life living right with God our Father.
Romans 1:20 20 For His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what He has made. As a result, people are without excuse. (HCSB #Bible)
What if this is true? Better yet, being true what is one left with? Is it in believing or not believing?
To a believer, for one to say they do not believe is to not exist.
If you don’t believe in God there is nothing else for you except to be damned in hell, and an eternity in the lake of fire.
To a nonbeliever, the one who believes is considered a fool believing in folklore fairytales, and fables.
I hope you can see the jump the non-believer has to take to not believe when all around him is the unexplainable evidence of a greater force, a power that only a fool can evade, only a fool can deny when it is obvious.
After turning a blind eye to God’s Creation the non-believer even takes on the position of God declaring the believer to be a fool.
I believe this is why God has created a place called the lake of fire, to separate the nonbelievers who innately want to be their own God and control their own destiny.
Satan had the same in mind when he declared he wanted to be like God, because their was and is nothing higher imaginable.
We are all left with this decision of our lifetimes, that determines the destiny of our personal lives for eternity.
Not only that, but who we will have a eternal relationship with, Satan or the Creator of all things God Himself.
God has sent His Son Jesus our Savior who has redeemed us from our non belief and rebellious sins. Allowing us to be the sons and daughters of God, adopted right into the Family of God. It’s your choice.
Believe, and Jesus will help you in your unbelief.
1 Peter 3:3-4 Do not let your adorning be external–the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear– but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. ESV #Bible
Do you or have you using the way you dress to make a statement?
In today’s society we have the phenomenon of tattoos. It is now permeating through all ages and I’m sure for a multitude of reasons. Christians want to proclaim to everyone that they are God’s children. Others tattoo the story of their lives on themselves, and still others want the shock value and the statement of individuality, or to fit in with a group.
Weather tattoos or clothing, or jewelry, all are statements of who we are or what we want others to think of ourselves.
The Apostle Peter here is saying what counts with God is who you are on the inside, the one God looks at.
What I have discovered in my life as I get older is that having been there and done that, there are less times I am surprised with unfamiliarity, and I being one who gets excited quickly, especially with my mouth.
As I age I see this gental and quiet spirit in me, and I really like it. I’ve known and know wonderful Christians who have this wonderful peace inside and I try to strive for that peace inside also.
As Peter says let our adorning be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable beauty. There is only one way we can get this kind of beauty, and that is through the Love of God. That Love is Jesus the Christ, who paid the price for our sins that we cannot pay, through His death on the cross. Then not only are we free from our sins, Jesus restored our relationship with God, even to be God’s sons and daughters in the inheritance.
What we are on the outside? It doesn’t change who we are on the inside. Only Jesus the Christ can do that. Invite Jesus into your inside, into your heart and recieve the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. That’s the dress or tattoo God sees.
