Jesus challenges us to understand that it is not what we eat that is the problem. The problem is our heart. The problem is what we think, do and say. That is the real pollution in our life. Jesus is clear that it’s what comes out of a person that pollutes: obscenities, lusts, thefts, murders, adulteries, greed, depravity, deceptive dealings, carousing, mean looks, slander, arrogance, foolishness—all these are vomit from the heart in GOD’s world (Kingdom).

We need to know this about our self so that we can take advantage of Jesus redeeming us from the price we have to pay for what is in our heart. Jesus gives a new heart. Now that is good news.

“Listen now, all of you— take this to heart. It’s not what you swallow that pollutes your life; it’s what you vomit—that’s the real pollution.” ~~Jesus (Mark 7:15 The Message)

Can I help where help is needed?

April 15, 2012 1 comment

I know sometimes I am trying to help with the wrong thing. I think I understand the problem but I have somehow missed the real issue. Jesus is able to help where the help is needed. Not missing the mark at all. He experienced it all himself and has gotten rid of our missing His goal for our life. He is our High Priest.

May I rest in the knowledge that He helps me where I need the help.

It’s obvious, of course, that he didn’t go to all this trouble for angels. It was for people like us, children of Abraham. That’s why he had to enter into every detail of human life. Then, when he came before God as high priest to get rid of the people’s sins, he would have already experienced it all himself—all the pain, all the testing—and would be able to help where help was needed. Hebrews 2:16-18

Say a quiet yes to God

Am I as serious as I need to be? Am I really serious?

I will yell a loud no to the Devil. I am a new creation. He is completely defeated already. I am fully redemmed. I will say a quiet yes to God.

May I always remember to say YES and he will be with me!!

So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in missing God’s goals. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet. James 4
