Where is my mind?


Sorry about missing devotions the last couple of days. The stomach virus payed a little visit to me and my daughter!



I found this verse thought provoking:



Romans 8:5

5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.



We all have control over our minds. This verse makes it clear that we choose to live for the flesh or we choose to live by the Spirit. To sum that up, we choose to sin or we choose to live like Christ. From the moment we roll out of bed in the morning until we lay back down that night we have choices all day long. What is our mind focused on? Look at what the bible says if we are focused on the flesh:



Romans 8:7

7 For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot.



Ouch! Thank goodness for the grace and mercy of God! When our minds are in the flesh we are hostile to God!



When we are in the flesh we can not please God:



Romans 8:8

8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.



Who in their right mind wants to live like that??? I want to please my heavenly Father don't you?



So what is the answer?



Romans 8:16

16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God



Keep your mind on the things of the Spirit! Hard to do but doable! Be an obedient child. A reminder of what the things of the Spirit are:



Galatians 5:22-23

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness,

self-control; against such things there is no law.



So where is your mind at?



Tom

Great passage of scripture.......We do have control over our minds. As Christians we are not sinless, but we certainly ought to sin less.

Be like Phil, spread the truth!!!


Well needless to say I am very perturbed by what A&E has done to Phil Robertson. Suspending Him from the show Duck Dynasty for his views on homosexuality which are in line with the bible. If you haven't read it look it up on internet. So I am posting this to say Phil is standing on the Word of God and God's Word tells us we will face persecution when proclaiming God's Word. Each of us should ask ourselves, am I proclaiming the Word of God?



Here are some scriptures to think about:



This is the scripture Phil is being persecuted for:



Romans 1:18-32



God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Scriptures that tell us persecution will come when standing on God's Word:Matthew 5:10-12

10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

John 15:20

20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.



When spreading God's Word persecution will come:





1 Peter 4:12-16

12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; 13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. 14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people’s matters. 16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter.





2 Timothy 3:10-12

10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.



2 Corinthians 12:10

Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.



John 16:33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”



Romans 12:12

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.



James 1:2

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,



1 Peter 1:5-7

5 who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.



Spread the truth of God's Word:



2 Timothy 2:15

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.



John 17:17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.



Spread the truth, and if trials come so be it! Thanks Phil for setting the example!



Tom

Really whoever?


In this lonely, hate filled, sinful world of ours I want to remind you of some great news this morning. Check this verse out:



Romans 10:13



13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”



No matter where you are in life, if you call upon Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life, you will be saved! I love that word "whoever". That includes me and you. No matter where you been or what you have done. What a merciful and loving God we have. We don't deserve to be saved, matter of fact we deserve hell because we sin against a righteous and holy God. All we have to do is call on Jesus!



God loves us so much. We have a hard time understanding just how much He loves us. More than our parents love, more than our childrens love, and yes even more than a spouses love. God's love is deep and wide. This is how much God loves us:



John 3:16



16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.



Would you sacrifice your child for me? That is what God did for you! Amazing Love! Did you catch that word again? "Whoever"! Their is no one that is excluded from this whoever, the only way you are excluded is if you decide you don't want Jesus!



Thank you God, for including all us "whoevers" in your master plan! We love you!



Tom

Is the Word in your heart?


Run, run, run! Been all over the place my friends. Sorry for missing the devotions. I just got back last night from Gatlinburg,TN where we were at a youth conference with over 6,000 kids. Great conference. One of the messages was based on this question, Is the Word in your heart? It was based on this scripture:



Psalm 119:10-12



10 With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments!11 I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.12 Blessed are you, O Lord; teach me your statutes!



I want us to concentrate on verse 11. The speaker at the conference asked us a very interesting question, for those that have been saved over 4 years, can you quote a verse for each year you have been saved? Hmmm I have been saved for 22 years, that would mean 22 verses. That brings us to this question, how much of God's Word do I have stored up in my heart???? Why is that important? So that I do not sin against God!



Now I will be the first to admit I am not good at memorization. I can tell you lots of things the bible says but may not have book and verse and would have to look it up! These are lame excuses! If I sat down and thought about it I am pretty sure I could come up with 22 verses, but that is not the point....I should know much more! Why is it I can remember stupid sports numbers but not my bible? Perhaps I need to do some thinking on that huh? What about you?



So as we head into the new year, we may want to make a priority of storing up God's Word in our hearts! After all it will help us to not sin against our God!
