Setting Aside an Eternal Nest-Egg

“I Timothy 6:7 reads, For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. Let me pose this question to you ― since we can carry nothing out, then how can we have something on the other side when we enter the kingdom of God and eternal bliss? Certainly not as the Pharaohs of Egypt practiced by loading up all their stuff into tombs / pyramids (supposed time machines), because all that stuff has been plundered on this side of heaven and most of the loot was ransacked and spent by grave robbers or placed in museums. The answer is actually quiet astounding. We simply send them ahead of time. But how? By believing and trusting in the Word of God today. You see, it is the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever– I Peter 1:23, and as we believe the everlasting Word, the Word itself will richly sustain and reward us in eternity. So as we can see, the Word of God is much more valuable than we sometimes even grasp.” ~LMJ~

To Have and to Will and to Do – Ta-Da, Ta-De-Da-Da

“When you begin believing the Word of God within the depths of your soul, you will come to experience the realities of the Word effectually working in your heart and life and surroundings – Christ’s faith – continues blessing you and all that you have and all that you do. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure– Philippians 2:13” ~LMJ~

The Case for Faith

“Hebrews 12:2 reads, Looking unto Jesus {who is} the author and finisher of our {believing} faith, and since he is the author and finisher of our faith, we can look to him in the Scriptures for our example of how to grow our believing faith to maturity. Another way we could look at this is that without Jesus, we will have a lack of Christian faith. So then, how do we learn more about this faith of Christ that we now have? We go straight to the Word of God! So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God– Romans 10:17. This verse carries a double meaning. First, the word hearing is repeated doubly to emphasize how the faith of Christ comes to us, and that is by hearing, and hearing to the point of our believing – and believing one thing and one thing only – and that is the word of God! The second meaning of the word hearing here is that the more of the Word of God we hear, the greater our own believing can rise to believe in the promises that are laid out for us in God’s faithful Word to receive and to enjoy.” ~LMJ~

We May Experience the Mind of Christ, Because the Bible Tells Us So

“One of the most wonderful things about the church Epistles is that the Word of God never demands that we change our minds without something else to replace old thoughts and actions. Rather His Word always shows us how to replace old thoughts, emotions, and actions with new concepts that come to life by putting on the mind of Christ. We are encouraged to put off the old man and to put on the new man; this must be possible because the Bible tells us so, and God’s Word instructs us about how to do this successfully.” ~LMJ~
