Arguments and varying opinions about legalism and godliness is not something uncommon on my blog. A huge misunderstanding I think just comes by people's assumptions by what I mean, and that's my fault for not clarifying better. My last post covering this What Is Godly/Holy Living | Am I Living A Defiled Life? taught me that I … Continue reading Difference Between Legalism & Godly Living (Condensed)
What makes someone corrupt and what makes someone not corrupt? Today's reading shows us just why we need Jesus in our lives, and that by our own merit, we are not good. Several connections to the book of Romans appear today, which I'm excited about, and I hope you enjoy it, too! Before Continuing, Look … Continue reading We Cannot Be A “Good” Person
Well, I thought I was going to be able to cover fasting and why the disciples didn't fast when they were with Jesus, but you'll have to wait for a few weeks for the second part. (Or read Matthew 9:14-17, Mark 2:18-22, Luke 5:33-39 to learn more) Fasting is "hip" by today's standards. It's healthy, … Continue reading How To Fast Properly (Are We Seeking The Reward Of Men?)
CLARIFICATION (Added 05/17/2020)- Godly living is not the same as legalism (obeying rules to get into Heaven). Those truly in Jesus naturally will experience a transformation from the Holy Spirit. True Christians live a set-apart life as scripture shows because true believers cannot go back to a sinful life. That doesn't mean they are perfect, … Continue reading What Is Godly/Holy Living | Am I Living A Defiled Life?
In the midst of COVID-19, these chapters today are such a reminder that God is bigger than what we fear and what is in the world. As today is a day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus may we be reminded that our strength is in Christ. Today's Reading: Chapter 11, 12, and 13 Chapter … Continue reading Why Are We Fearful When We Have The Lord?
I recently had a question posed by a sister in Christ, "How do we know God's will?" The timing of this is so perfect because today is Good Friday. A time to reflect on and remember Jesus giving His life up for ours. Before He was betrayed Jesus prayed for God to spare Him from … Continue reading God’s Will | What Does The Bible Say?
Clarification- I am not saying God inspired me, told me, or gave me personally this scripture. I like picking scripture and was grateful to find this. I have a few posts I've been meaning to reflect on regarding last year (is it too late now?). One of them relates to the monthly scriptures I picked … Continue reading 2020’s Scripture For Inside Cup & Its Connection To What’s Happening
I know many people struggle reading the Bible because it feels tedious and boring. This is a reflection on our flesh, not on the word of God! It is Jesus, the word of truth, who opens scripture up to us. He ministers. Admittedly, when I first started to work on this chapter, I thought it … Continue reading At First Glance, A “Boring” Speech For Some Readers… But Wait! (Second Coming of Jesus?!)
I know some think that by loving like God...that means we can't hate. This is not true! You see, to truly love, we hate what oppresses that love. As verse 13 shares in chapter 8, the fear of God is to hate evil. The Bible constantly shows us there are things in life we are … Continue reading What Wisdom Is, What It Hates & How It Existed Before Creation
It's really easy to judge people in the Bible and think, "Well, I would never do that..." or at least, I'm guilty of that way of thinking. Peter is one who often gets picked on in this manner, but one of the reasons why he is a favorite disciple of many people is because he … Continue reading God’s Will | Jesus Vs. Peter (Our Struggle With Control)
