POLITICIANS AT WORK

STUPIDITY

(Images courtesy of: www.Pixabay.com)

Let me start by stating I think women are
the neatest thing God created.  After all, he knew
that it was not good for a man to live alone.

Yes, women out shine the star studded sky
and the roses in the garden.

Even the good book says,

"Find a wife and you find a good thing;
it shows that the Lord is good to you."
(Proverbs 18:22 GNT)

AMEN.


"A man can inherit a house and money
from his parents, but only the Lord
can give him a sensible wife."
(Proverbs 19:14 GNT)

AMEN.



BUT, but, but.

Have you noticed lately that a lot of
women in politics do not seem to have
even the brain power that God gave
a goose???
(O.K.  A lot of the men too.)

The good book also says,

"Stupidity is like a loud, ignorant,
shameless woman...."
(Proverbs (9:13 GNT)



"After all, even fools may be thought 
wise and intelligent if they stay quiet
and keep their mouths shut."
(Proverbs 17:28 GNT)

Just a thought.

WOUNDS


WOUNDS.
We avoid them at all cost,
and we should -
They hurt. 


But did you know that someone was wounded 
for you.  Yes, wounded so you could be healed.



The very God who created you and
gave you life.  He came down from
heaven and became a man offering
himself up to die in our place,
taking the death that we deserve.


His name is Jesus Christ.
He was wounded and killed
for you and me.



Mankind was told a long time ago that
he was coming to die in my place.

Here is the way it is said in 
Isaiah 53:4-6 NKJV.

"Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our 
transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace
was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one to his
own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him 
the iniquity of us all."

Jesus Christ was wounded for you.
Don't ignore Him.

THE MISSING INGREDIENT ?????????

I have been a Christian for a long time.
And, I am more convinced than ever that
the Bible is truly the word of God.  I have
seen it proven true over and over.  Let the
skeptics scoff.  The day is coming when they
too will have to admit the truth of it.  Of
course, it may well be too late for them.

How ever, most of the time I do not feel
like a saint. I am far from what I want to 
be.

Years ago I began to notice something.
The "Church" of the Bible, and the "Church"
of today plain and simply are different.  We
use the same words, but have attached different
meanings, or actions.  And the results are 
different.

As Christians we profess to follow the teachings
of Christ.  But do we???

For example.
I find lots of teaching, books, blogs, seminars,
articles etc. about how to succeed, prosper, be 
victorious, be a winner and get your prayers
answered - and much more.

BUT, BUT, BUT,
there is one subject that Christ taught in a very
simple straight forward manner that I have seen
NOTHING being taught on.

"Do not be afraid, little flock,
for your Father is pleased to
give you the Kingdom.  SELL
all your belongings 




and GIVE
the money to the poor.  Provide for
yourselves purses that don't wear out,
and save your riches in heaven,..."
(Luke 12:32,33 GNT)




And in another place when talking to a 
crowd of people Jesus said,

"In the same way,' concluded Jesus,
'none of you can be my disciple unless
you GIVE give up everything you 
have." (Luke 14:33 GNT)




Another time Jesus was talking to a Jewish
leader.  The man had followed all the do's
and don'ts, but knew something was missing.

"When Jesus heard this he said to him,
'There is still one more thing you need
to do.  SELL all you have and GIVE
the money to the poor,




and you will have riches in heaven; then come
and follow me."
(Luke 18:22 GNT)




As for me, I have another truck load ready
to go to the sale.

WAITING FOR HELP



(Images courtesy of:www.Pixabay.com)


"I said, 'I have worked, but how hopeless
it is!  I have used up my strength, but have
accomplished nothing'.
Yet I can trust the Lord to defend my cause;
he will reward me for what I do."
(Isaiah 49:4 GNT)





Then God said,

"Then you will know that I am the Lord;
no one who waits for my help will be
disappointed."
(Isaiah 49:23b GNT)

TO SMART FOR YOUR OWN GOOD


So you have the "truth" all figured out.


But, does "truth" agree with you?


"Your wisdom and knowledge
led you astray,"
(Isaiah 47:10 GNT)


"So Jesus said to those who believed
in him, 'If you obey my teaching,
you are really my disciples; you 
will know the truth, and the truth
will set you free.'"
(John 8:31,32 GNT)

It is time to get out of your little mind
and into the one book that can give you
the truth,
The Holy Bible.
