It’s the Inside that Counts!

Verse of the Month:

“… Love one another as I have loved you …” John 13:34

February 22-28, 2015
 

Scripture Reading: 1Samuel 16:7 & 1 Chronicles 28:9

It’s the Inside that Counts!

In August of 1984 we were traveling in England with Jim’s Aunt.  She was from there and wanted to see her homeland once more before “going home” she would say. 
After dropping her off with friends for a few weeks, we had time to see the country.  One hot afternoon we were walking to the Tower of London and saw this ice cream place.  “What a good idea,” we thought.  So far I wasn’t very keen on the food, and it was the only vacation where I actually lost weight.
We were enjoying our treat when all of a sudden we bit into something at the very bottom of the cone.  It was a thick, rich piece of chocolate, and it was delicious.  For the rest of the trip I looked for a Wall’s ice cream place just because I liked what was on the inside of it.  It made me feel good.
When other people see you, do they like what they see?  Is it your appearance or is it the heart that they see.  God looks on the heart.  Will He like what’s inside of you?
Weekly Memory Verse:  “But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7 NKJV)

God said, "It was good!"


Verse of the Month:

“… Love one another as I have loved you …” John 13:34

February 15-21, 2015

 Scripture Reading: Psalm 104

 God said, “It was good!”

Have you ever stopped along a roadside when you were traveling and just enjoyed the beauty of the mountains, hills and valleys?  Often times we do that in our travels, and are in awe of how each place differs from another, and how glorious each one is.  I never tire of the sights of God.
When God created this earth, the Word declares that God was delighted at His work.  It gave Him pleasure to look on it and care for it.  Genesis 1 helps us build a picture that God saw it, backed up and said, “It is good!”  I can imagine Him doing that.
Psalm 104 reveals how God cares for His creation.  How wonderful is His work that He made and gave to us.  Remember His marvelous works that He hath done (Psalm 105:5a) and sing praises to Him as long as you live (Psalm 104:33). 
Tell Him that “It is good!”  Give God the glory.

Weekly Memory Verse:  "I will sing to the LORD as long as I live, I will sing praise to  my God while I have my being."  (Psalm 104:33 NKJV)

Peace is A LOVE Gift from God

Verse of the Month:

“… Love one another as I have loved you …” John 13:34 

February 8-14, 2015

 

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 53:5  

 


Peace is A LOVE Gift from God

How often have you read Isaiah 53:5?  Many times we skip over most of the verse and zero in on the “by His stripes you are healed” part of the scripture.  The truth is that we cannot ignore the rest of the verse, because it all goes together.
When Jesus died on the cross for our sins, He also died for everything else we would go through in life.  “Transgressions against God and one another, iniquities (which is knowingly sinning over and over again), robbery of our peace in all aspects of life, and sickness that destroys life”. 
See God loved us so much that He sent us His Peace to dwell in us through His Holy Spirit.  If you are at odds with someone, sick or in need of anything, you are not at peace.  In fact, you are living the exact opposite -chaos and unrest.  Living a life not settled causes us to waver and walk out of faith. 

Choose to walk in faith and receive God's love gift of peace right now. 

Weekly Memory Verse:  Isaiah 53:5

“But He (Jesus) was wounded for our transgressions,

He was bruised for our iniquities;

The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,

And by His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5 NKJV)

Wisdom in Hearing

  Verse of the Month:

“… Love one another as I have loved you …” John 13:34
 


 February 1-7, 2015
 
Scripture Reading: Proverbs 13:13
 
 Wisdom in Hearing
When I was a child my Dad would say, "No one ever got into trouble listening."  In other words, he was saying to listen and keep your mouth shut, but he said it in a more tactful way.
Proverbs 13:1-3 gives us instruction from the Heavenly Father on listening.  A wise son listens and gains knowledge that will give life, but one that constantly opens his lips will eventually have destruction.

 
A wise son heeds his father’s instruction,
But a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.

A man shall eat well by the fruit of his mouth,
But the soul of the unfaithful feeds on violence.
He who guards his mouth preserves his life,
But he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.

A wise son (child) not only hears the instruction, but he takes the information given to heart and keeps quiet; he is not easily provoked into arguments. Learn to be a wise child and listen without being offended (vs. 13). 


Whoever despises the Word will be destroyed, but those who respect and do it will be rewarded.

 
Weekly Memory Verse:  Proverbs 13:13

“He who despises the Word will be destroyed,
But he who fears the commandment will be rewarded.”
