Eating is Believing

My Morning Meal

The crowd came looking for a meal. Jesus wanted to give them more. They longed to partake again of everything they had eaten the previous day. Jesus invited them to participate in a feast that would secure all their tomorrows. They wanted some sort of sign–like manna in the wilderness (they were kind of fixated on food). Jesus seized the opportunity to talk about another heaven sent bread–one that not only dealt with the hunger and thirst for the day, but also satisfied one’s hunger and thirst for eternity.

“I am the bread of life; whoever comes to Me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst.”   ~ Jesus

(John 6:35 ESV)

Quit fixating on yesterday’s loaves and fish, He said. Stop romanticizing about yesteryear’s manna in the wilderness. Instead, look to Me, the bread of life, “who comes down from heaven and gives life to…

You Are, All That I Need, All My Heart And Soul, Blessings

Where Words Daily Come Alive.wordpress.com

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
YOU ARE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My love you are a God of
Great mercy, a Lord of
Great love, a King of great charity

You were before all
Thoughts were conceived
Of the dream Gods of men

You were when the universe knew
No sin and all did praise
And glorify your name

You were, the life of all that was
And your life was of the Son,
And the Son was of your life

The Spirit was of you Lord,
For He is your power
And the power of the Son

Woe be to him that dares to
Separate by mouth with blasphemous words,
The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

For how can the one who
Has no knowledge,
Speak on He who has all knowledge?

How can he that is with sin
Disregard He that is without sin
As not being a reality?

How can he that…

November 16 Those Who Accept the Invitation

Truth2Freedom's Blog

You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight.—Matt. 11:25b–26

An infant is completely dependent on others for everything he or she needs. A baby has no resources of its own to draw upon for help. The same Greek word (for “infants”) is used of those who can’t eat solid food (1 Cor. 3:1; Heb. 5:13). It is also used of those who can’t speak (1 Cor. 13:11) and of those who are helpless (Eph. 4:14).

To such spiritual babes, those who realize they are utterly unable to save themselves, God wants to reveal the truths of His kingdom. As seen in the Sermon on the Mount, the “poor in spirit” who humbly confess their dependency on the Father and the Son receive a clear and irrevocable invitation to salvation.

November 16 Sovereign Control

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Elect according to the foreknowledge of God.

1 Peter 1:2

Through the years, Arminian and Calvinistic theologies have been at opposite poles. Traditional Reformed theology, which we call Calvinism, emphasizes God’s sovereignty, but Arminian theology in effect emphasizes man’s sovereignty. It teaches that God is helpful in providing spiritual assistance, but that one must find it in himself to come to Christ, persevere in the faith, accomplish spiritual goals, and win spiritual victories.

What results from that kind of theology? A person can profess to trust in Christ, but in reality trusts in himself. This reflects the belief that the power to choose salvation—or lose it through spiritual failure—belongs to the individual. Suppose you believed you had that kind of power. Can you imagine what it would be like to face death and wonder if you would be disqualified from heaven because you had committed too many sins? That kind…
