“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: if so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious– I Peter 2:2–3. There is genuine milk (i.e., whole milk, rather than skim, one percent, or half-and-half) within every ounce of God’s winsome, delectable, and gracious Word! God is so wonderful and gracious to us in so many ways, which are at times beyond our comprehension, yet we may assuredly know that we have received from God (II Corinthians 9:15, I Peter 1:8).” ~LMJ~
“The key of David- Isaiah 22:22, Revelation 3:7, is the knowledge David had regarding his Lord, Jesus Christ, for David was recognized as being the light of Israel in II Samuel 21:15-17. The light of Israel reveals him who said I am the light of the world: He that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life– John 8:12. David represented the light of Israel who led Israel’s way to Christ, and Christ is the light of the entire world, who leads us to the light of life. The light of life that we shall have is not merely the seeing of light but acquiring the light; for it is in having the light of understanding that we have life eternal within given by God Almighty.” ~LMJ~
“God Creates matter (stuff) – man uses that matter (stuff) and believes he creates!
God formed the world for man – man polluted that world!
God made trees – man-made pink jelly beans!
God put the potato in the ground – man ate it!
God freely gives eternal life – man sells insurance for life!
God promises heaven and makes man whole – man digs a hole!” ~LMJ~
“When Jesus was physically here he reconciled people back to God, but today in grace we live in the completed work of Christ, enjoying our own reconciliation. This is a God‑given right, and we can always walk within our reconciliation before our God (II Corinthians 5:18-19).” ~LMJ~
“Giving is a partnership between the giver and his or her heavenly Father, not between Paul, God, and the believers, nor is giving between you and me and God, but rather connects an individual to his or her God and His fullness to enhance their personal relationship.” ~LMJ~
