The Elder

1 John 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. ESV #Bible

To an elder, or an elderly man, all those younger are children to him, whether in the church or the family.
For an elder in the church his love for the congregation are his children in the Lord, he watches over them as his own.
The elder naturally loves his flock or congregation. It comes easily to him because he is residing in Christ’s Love with the desire to serve the body of believers.
The elder naturally wants to protect his children from evil, or any sort of harm. Helping to raise them up in the fullness of the Gospel and the Love of Jesus the Christ.
Idols are anyone or thing that would distract or block you from direct axcess to God.
It’s like the sun, when something comes between you and the sun, you find yourself in the shade or darkness.
Keeping yourselves in the light of God’s Love is to stay away from anything that would draw you into a place of darkness, or what would come between you and God.  Causing ignorance of God and the longer you stay the more ignorant you become about God and his Love. Then your hunger for God is replaced with what your human nature desires. Then sin reigns as God over your life. So keep yourselves from idols.

Peacemakers

Matthew 5:9  “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. ESV #Bible

Ah blessed, this word here means to be supremely blessed, and to be very fortunate, and that’s not all, but to be happier.
When we understand this, you can’t help but want to be a peacemaker.
A peacemaker is one who glues us together, one who is quietly in calmness pursuing unity and love of one another. Peacemakers strive to lift up and encourage those around them always for the unification of the body of Christ Jesus, by this we see why they are called sons of God.
All of us Christians must strive to be peacemakers, always working on being more like Jesus the Christ, studying the Word of God (the Bible) and remaining, and abiding in our God Jesus through prayer. So in that day we will be known to be just like Jesus.

Oh Taste and See

Posted in Blogroll on May 2, 2016 by activeinspiration

Psalms 34:8 Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! ESV #Bible

Take the time so far in perceiving God, as to consider even the taste in your mouth. Experience Jehovah our self existent God, in gazing joyfully into who He is.
Our Lord is good, He is perfect in all His ways, everything He does is motivated by His love. Take heed to His presence in every part, every place of your life.
Be happy as you look to Jesus, the expression of God the Father’s perfect Love, realizing Jesus is the only shelter, the perfect refuge for our safety, that will carry us to eternal life with our LORD. God is Good all the time

The Christ

Matthew 16:13-16  Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” ESV #Bible

It is a privilege to know that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.
When you consider how close all of us came to turning our backs on Jesus, or even in those times of temptation slipped away in sin.
We could have missed our salvation because of the lusts of our desire.
Thank God that He didn’t give up on us so quickly.
Again we are thankful that we didn’t have some worldly idea, or opinion that Jesus was a myth, or just some great man, or even just a prophet of old who isn’t realitive today.
Thank God we have met the Son of God, Jesus the one and only unique Son, who is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.
The Great Sheppard  who leads us through this life on our way to be with God our Father for eternity.
Jesus who laid down His earthly life for the punishment of our sin, and after three days rose from the dead leading us to the new life in Grace, onward home to our Father God into eternity.
Who do I say that Jesus is? He is my Saviour, my God, my Brother, He is my Lord, He is the Way, the Truth and the only Life worth living.
