May 14 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  WHERE IS YOUR MIND???

May 14 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  WHERE IS YOUR MIND???

Philippians 2:5 “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:”

As saints, we should strive daily to love others like Jesus loves, walk like He walks, think like He thinks, etc.  Our very conversation should be one that glorifies God.  To have the mind of Christ is to put away selfish thinking, pride, and giving up our own agendas so that God can get the glory!  It is humbling ourselves and serving others without reserve. Doing an honest self-evaluation is a great way to assess where your mind is.

May 13 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH: SET APART FOR GOOD USE

May 13 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  SET APART FOR GOOD USE

John 17:17 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”

As avid students of the Word of God, we come to know that to sanctify means to consecrate, set apart for sacred service or make holy.  The Word of God is like a mirror which captures the very essence of who we are at the core and reflects the truth of that image back to the person, causing the heart to be penetrated and renewed.  This cleansing process helps the believer be ready for good use.

May 12 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH: BEING FAITHFUL

May 12 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  BEING FAITHFUL

Ephesians 4:5 “One Lord, one faith, one baptism,”

Sin will separate us from God who is Lord.  We must be desperate, determined, and faithful to Jesus for He will deliver us!  We must be faithful and true to Jesus.  Man has no choice on how he comes into the world, but he has a choice on how he shall leave it.  We must hold fast to Jesus because Jesus is faithful and true.

May 11 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH: DON’T FORGET YOUR KEYS!

May 11 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  DON’T FORGET YOUR KEYS!

Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

This scripture holds a wealth of thought about key scriptures pertaining to salvation.  In Matthew 16:19, Jesus tells Peter, “I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven.”  In Revelation 1:18, Jesus declares of Himself, “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore; Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”  We stand on the scripture that Jesus purchased the Church with His blood, we were buried with Him by baptism, and believe there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.  Saints of God, with turmoil everywhere we look in this world, the Holy Ghost is our Key to righteous living and I encourage you to stay with the Truth.

May 10 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH: THE HOLY SPIRIT

May 10 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  THE HOLY SPIRIT

I John 4:1 “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”

In this scripture John warns the Christians in the Church to be aware of the spirit of false prophets and false teachers that are not of the Spirit of God.  1 Thessalonians 5:21 tells us to “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.”  The Holy Spirit bears witness to the Word of God.  It is our Paraclete! Saints of God, continue to be steadfast, pray, and fast while the Holy Spirit leads and guides us into all truth.

May 9 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH: HOLDING ON TO THE FAITH

May 9 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  HOLDING ON TO THE FAITH

Psalm 119:11 “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”

In these last and evil days with all that’s happening, it’s easy to let the mind drift, but we have to remember God’s Word and stay with the truth. It is written, “And, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world (Matthew 28:20).” That’s why it’s important to study the Word. When all else fails, we can proclaim that “Thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against you.”

May 8 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH: TRIED AND TRUE

May 8 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  TRIED AND TRUE

2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”

Tried and true denotes something that has been proven in the past to be effective or reliable.  For centuries intellectuals near and far have tried to “debunk” the Bible.  They’ve even persuaded millions of people to question the credibility of the Word of God, but we know not by word of mouth, but from experience that God’s Word is true.  We’ve seen what was written in scripture manifest in our very own lives.  People will continue to refute the Word of God until Jesus returns, but we know his Word to be true because we’ve tried it for ourselves.

May 7 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  TOO MUCH INVESTED

May 7 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  TOO MUCH INVESTED

Psalm 119:10 “With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.”

Let us remain committed to seeking the Lord daily, hiding His words in our hearts and allowing them to be our anchor. We must continually and consistently stand strong on the Word of the Lord so that when adversities come, we are unshakable in our faith.  When our faith begins to waiver, we become unstable and vulnerable to temptation.  As the saints of God, we have too much invested to wander from His commandments.  Seeking Him first will allow you to stay in truth!

May 6 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  THE TRUTH WILL MAKE YOU FREE!

May 6 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  THE TRUTH WILL MAKE YOU FREE!

Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

To stay in truth is to stay in the Word of God.  Jesus said to those Jews which believed on him, “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32). The truth of God’s Word will quicken your spirit and in this context “quicken” means to be made alive.  Staying in God’s Word will both give you life and sustain your life.  So, stay in the Word of God and you will not depart from truth.

May 5 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  TRUTH=FREE

May 5 STAYING WITH THE TRUTH:  TRUTH=FREE

John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

God’s Word is truth and His Truth shall set you free!  It will lead you to salvation and teach you how to live right. There are many doctrines in the world that are not the truth of God.  If you ever stray away from God’s truth, you will lose the most valuable thing in life, Salvation!  So please stay in the Word, and the truth shall set you free!
