Welcome dear readers to another installment in my scattered & collected musings for this week. I plan to expound upon some of these topics later.
First, I’m glad to have read two books from our local library by the Bush family this summer/fall. Good background for these remembrances of George H.W. Bush as he’s “graduated to Heaven”.
Once Saved Always Saved? Many verses in the Bible -old and new testaments-do not support this belief.
Is Salvation ONLY A Ticket To Heaven? Are we just offering “fire insurance”?
Was Jesus Christ Born in December? Jewish history reveals from the things mentioned around Christ’s birth that he was born in the spring around Passover, rather than Hanukkah.
Why do we Celebrate Christmas in December? Something to do with some of the first converts after the original Apostle’s time.
Angel Flight 44? A mission that began with a few Christians willing to obey God’s promptings that led to caring for a lot of people immediately after Hurricane Katrina that involved an old Super DC-3 airplane and two radically obedient men.
What could Happen if we Practice Radical Obedience? Could we do as great exploits as those involved in Angel Flight 44?
What Does Ayurvedics have to do with US? Deepak and Sanjiv Chopra’s revolution in integrated medicine in our country and around the world. As Christians, should we be involved at all with this New Age option for health?
How Can We be Healthy Long-Term? Can integrated medicine fit into Biblical principles?
Am I a Good tree or Bad tree? What does the Bible really say?
Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.
My Psalm 91 study Lesson 12:
Psalm 91:14a: “he has loved me, therefore I will…”
Peggy Joyce Ruth notes that Psalm 91 changes with verse 14. God has been talking about His promises in 3rd person, but changes to speaking to us personally from His secret place, announcing promises in the first person. Verses 14 & 15 & 16 are a challenge to set our love on God; these promises are made only to those who have genuinely set their love on God. Jesus says:
John 14:15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments.
There are so many benefits to cultivating a growing relationship with the Lord God of the Universe! My dear friend, what are you doing to strengthen your relationship with Him?
