The Lord has been dealing with me to put these words out that He has laid on my heart. He wants me to encourage you to read His Word and apply it to your life. He is watching us. Regardless of what you think is happening, He is, in fact, taking notice of His creation. He cares about what we are doing, and how we are living. He IS speaking. Now whether you can hear is another thing altogether. It takes being intentional seeking Him out, and He says in His word that you will find him. (Jeremiah 29:13)
Hebrews 4:12 says that the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the diving asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
The Word of God is alive! That is what that passage in Hebrews is saying to us. It’s God-breathed as it says in 2 Timothy; Inspired by the Holy Spirit. It reveals us to us and reveals God to us. You learn His character through the Bible. You learn what His voice sounds like, and how He deals with mankind.
You can’t hide from the Spirit of God. Once you read the Word, it shows you yourself in the pages, and the stories of those who came before us. We get instructions from God, and the world. But who do we follow? Who do we listen to? The bible is our compass on how to live. You will find, as the days and years’ progress that most look at the bible as outdated, and unnecessary. Don’t let that be your way of thinking.
Society’s tolerance for anything and everything, is not a pass for the Believer to do as they want. Likewise, Christians who align themselves with the world is not an example on how to live. Become a fruit inspector if you haven’t already. Even with that, do all things in love. We never want to stumble another brother or sister. Be an example of someone set apart for God without condemning your brother or sister. Judge all things righteously. (John 7:24)
We are in the world but we aren’t of this world. You will find a separation taking place where it will become obvious who is who. As followers of Jesus Christ, we must live for Him, and be lovers of truth and righteousness. Also, serve one another, instead of being self serving. The world says, “Do you and don’t worry about the next!” I used to say that as well, and believed it. Yet that isn’t what God wants. He wants us to love one another and help each other in our walk.
We are all in different stages; however, don’t use that to Lord over someone, or to mock someone else. The mature ones should help the babies, and I’m not speaking on length in the ministry, I’m speaking of whether you are ingesting milk or solid foods, and your manner of life. That is an indicator of maturity, not years saved.
Love on eachother. Help one another.
Read the passage below out loud. Get it in your spirit. It will bless you when dealing with your brother or sister.
Faith comes by hearing, so practice as often as you can to read the word aloud to yourself. Don’t miss this key and revelation that the Holy Spirit revealed to me.
Bless you all, and make an effort daily to read the bible and pray.
10 So why do you condemn another believer[a]? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11 For the Scriptures say,
“‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,
‘every knee will bend to me,
and every tongue will declare allegiance to God.[b]’”
12 Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. 13 So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall.
14 I know and am convinced on the authority of the Lord Jesus that no food, in and of itself, is wrong to eat. But if someone believes it is wrong, then for that person it is wrong. 15 And if another believer is distressed by what you eat, you are not acting in love if you eat it. Don’t let your eating ruin someone for whom Christ died. 16 Then you will not be criticized for doing something you believe is good. 17 For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God, and others will approve of you, too.19 So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up.
20 Don’t tear apart the work of God over what you eat. Remember, all foods are acceptable, but it is wrong to eat something if it makes another person stumble. 21 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything else if it might cause another believer to stumble.[c] 22 You may believe there’s nothing wrong with what you are doing, but keep it between yourself and God. Blessed are those who don’t feel guilty for doing something they have decided is right. 23 But if you have doubts about whether or not you should eat something, you are sinning if you go ahead and do it. For you are not following your convictions. If you do anything you believe is not right, you are sinning.[d]
Living to Please Others
15 We who are strong must be considerate of those who are sensitive about things like this. We must not just please ourselves. 2 We should help others do what is right and build them up in the Lord. 3 For even Christ didn’t live to please himself. As the Scriptures say, “The insults of those who insult you, O God, have fallen on me.”[e] 4 Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.
5 May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. 6 Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
7 Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.
