Hope you are doing alright, I know life can prove to be hard but remind yourself that Jesus Christ ended it all on the cross (John 18:30) ‘ When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “it is finished”, and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit’and that all you really need is Jesus Christ because He is everything.
Am going to start this segment on my blog post, were at the beginning of each blog am going to be including verse or verses of the day. Today’s verses are from the book of John 15:18-25: “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you, if you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world , but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master’. If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. But all these things they will do to you on account of my name because they do not know him who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have been guilty of sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me hates my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin, but now they have seen and hated both me and my Father. But the word that is written in their Law must be fulfilled: ‘They hated me without a cause.
back to the subject of the blog. Is it just me or you also have come across all of these sources and people out there who only love reciting the Bible verses that in their minds aligns with their lifestyles, which is not of God. A lot of these can also be sentences like “Jesus preached love, why are you hating?”, ” God loves everyone no matter what”, “Thou shall not judge”, ” Judge not”, Love your neighbour as yourself. All these are just referred to as sugar coating the BIBLE, being that you only want to hear and practice the sweet/pleasure-giving verses of the Bible that aligns with your life. “SAD”, you can’t eat your cake and have it, “SIR”. In any way or form, you can’t cherry-pick what to practice from the Bible, instead of living by the entire Bible”
From my understanding, the entire Bible themes, events, generations, and everything you can think of all lead to one ultimate theme “Jesus Christ”, “and there is no jumping the step, you have to use your legs one by one”. Take the Bible as it is, not picking only what suits your life or situation.
The thing I find funny is that those who don’t believe in God, are those who mostly argue about the Word of God “The Holy Bible”, 2 Timothy 3:16-17 ” All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
Thanks for reading and KEEP THE FAITH STRONG
