Meditations on the true Christian life.

Meditations on the true Christian life.

  • Quality is everything to God, even when quantity is the desired end.
  • Some speak with their mind, others in the Spirit.  These belong to two seperate worlds.
  • Do not think that just anybody can preach the Word of God.  Only one kind of person can preach it - those who have been dealt with by God.
  • The devout man or woman is one who no longer obeys their own will nor conforms to the way and spirit of the world, but obeys only the will of God.  Such a man or woman considers God in everything and makes every aspect of their life a devotion.
  • True love consists of words and actions that have their source in God.
  • The deepest element of "true obedience" is LOVE!

Saint Paul says that if only the perfect can preach, then no one can go forth with His word.

Then no one can hear.

Amen Ken!  God uses those considered to be "no-body's" by the world's standards to be mighty in His Kingdom for His glory.  Thanks for visiting.  Barbara :)

Good point on those being dealt with by God are the ones who can preach his word.

I like this Barbara.  As I said in another's earlier post, we all can benefit from these types of positive reinforcement .... especially in the real estate market we're in now.  Not only do we need positive insights like this but all of our clients can benefit from it as well.

Keep up the good work!  ;)
