First Things First

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ– Philippians 1:2. In all the Church Epistles, grace and peace are always mentioned in each salutation. The lesson in the salutation of grace and peace is that we need God’s grace daily, and that we can come to enjoy our lives immersed in the peace that God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ gives. Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ!” ~LMJ~

Our Inseparable God

“The healing Word of God grows and becomes more actively alive in proportion to how much we allow the Word to hold us up in our personal lives. For some, the only place for Christianity is in the local Church and when some leave the building they end up leaving God at the altar and the Bible behind in the pew. The true blessings of God come into being when we recognize that our heavenly Father is with us 24/7, and that it is His desire to bless us with His love, grace, and peace.”  ~LMJ~

His Inspiration

“When we allow the Savior’s words of comfort and inner peace to be at home in our minds, his words can inspire us to be the best in our relationships, in our workplaces, and in our life’s endeavors. When we allow the Master Teacher into our hearts — his words will become our thoughts (our inner consciousness) as his inspiration will be with us in our time of need, and this is the how of utilizing the daily inspirations we receive from Jesus Christ.” ~LMJ~

Spiritual Reality

“Everything that we receive from God is spiritual; however, spiritual blessings will always come into our physical lives so that we may further enjoy them.  For instance – God gave us light, love, joy, and peace – these are spiritual qualities of life that become manifested in our lives as we walk in the knowledge that we truly have received these gifts from God.” ~LMJ~

From Human Faith to Spiritual Faith

“The main difference between man’s faith and the faith of Jesus is that human faith can only rise up to believe in that which is seen, like the phrase says, seeing is believing. As Jesus said to Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed– John 20:29. In stark contrast to seeing before we believe; the faith of Jesus Christ is given so men and women can rise all the way up to believe in that which is not physically seen, yet is spiritually real ― such as salvation, love, peace, grace, joy, and the faith of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 12:2).” ~LMJ~
