Under Authority

Something to think about.

Under Authority   

8 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” Luke 7:8

Under authority, a foreign concept for us today. We are all about rights, self-determination, and individual freedoms it is almost impossible to breach the idea of doing someone else’s will. That is exactly what the centurion is saying. He knows what it is to obey.  Are we under authority? As Christians are we obeying the word and will of God? Are we ready to go when He says go? Are we ready to come when He says come? Are we ready to do what He says when He says do this? Are we under authority? In 1 Samuel 15:22 it says “To obey is better than sacrifice.” We Christians need to obey more sacrifice less. Go when commanded come when called and do when instructed. We need to submit to the authority of Christ in or lives.

 

Not A Word

Something to Think About
Not A Word
“Not a word failed of any good thing which the LORD had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.” Joshua 21:45 NKJV
God is faithful to fulfill His promises. We as Israel lose the path of God we wander away from His goodness. God never changes His path is still the same. He still is seeking those that would obey Him and share in His salvation and glory.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33(KJV)

Perfect

Something to think about.

Perfect

As for God, his way is perfect: The LORDʼs word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.
Psalm 18:30 NIV

 

Take refuge in the Lord, accept His flawless word, and it will lead you to His perfect way.  The problem with this is we regularly depend on our word and in our way. Then when we do not arrive in His perfect “way,” we wonder why.

After All Is Said and Done

Something to think about.

After All Is Said and Done

13 The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. Ecclesiastes 12:13 (ESV)

After everything’s said and done, when we come to the end of our lives, when we bring to accountant all we have done, the only aspect that will matter is our relationship with God. Will you come to the end of your life and find you neglected the most important thing. The goal, the purpose of your life, the reason you exist is to know God.
