God loves a cheerful giver, but in secret

Matthew 6:1 But take care not to do your righteousness before men in order to be gazed at by them; otherwise, you have no reward with your Father who is in the heavens.

2 Therefore when you give alms, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be glorified by men. Truly I say to you, They have their reward in full.

3 But you, when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,

4 So that your alms may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

 

God loves a cheerful giver.  But may all of our giving be in secret in the Father’s eyes and not to be glorified by men.

Got peace?

Ephesians 2:13  But now in Christ Jesus you who were once far off have become near in the blood of Christ.

14 For He Himself is our peace, He who has made both one and has broken down the middle wall of partition, the enmity,

Christ himself is our peace!  Peace is not an outward agreement that we will shake our hands over the fence and bite our tongues tolerating each other.  It’s not even an outward kind of unity.  Peace is a wonderful person!  He himself is our peace.  The bible speaks much about peace.  To be continued…

Grace and Reality in Christ

John 1:14  And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us (and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only Begotten from the Father), full of grace and reality.

 

Christ who is the Word of God became flesh.  When he came he came full of grace and reality for us all to enjoy!

Our God is a speaking God

Hebrews 1:1-2 God, having spoken of old in many portions and in many ways to the fathers in the prophets, Has at the last of these days spoken to us in the Son, whom He appointed Heir of all things, through whom also He made the universe;

Our God is a speaking God!  He spoke to the fathers in the prophets in the old testament.  And he is still speaking today in the Son in the new testament!  God speaks in the person of the Son, and the Son is God’s speaking.  He is the Word of God and the speaking of God!  Praise the Lord for the Son!

Walking with God or in the Vanity of the Mind?

Ephesians 4:17-18  This therefore I say and testify in the Lord, that you no longer walk as the Gentiles also walk in the vanity of their mind, Being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance which is in them, because of the hardness of their heart;

Genesis 5:22 And Enoch walked with God after he had begotten Methuselah three hundred years, and he begot more sons and daughters.

This is to have a daily walk that is without God, empty and void of reality.  Darkened in our understanding.  This is related to the mind.  A mind that is without God.  Or we could be today’s Enochs who are dependent upon God, filled with God, open to God, and all the time walking with God.  A daily life filled with God himself.  To be without God is truly a tragedy to any human being.

The spirit of Man: Every human being has three parts

 

1 Corinthians 2:11 For who among men knows the things of man, except the spirit of man which is in him? In the same way, the things of God also no one has known except the Spirit of God.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

According to bible every human being has three parts.  A spirit, soul, and body.  We are more familiar with the two latter, the soul and body.  But there is third part much deeper than our mind, emotion or will.  It is called the  human spirit.
