The Word of God Not Dead Letter but Dynamic

What value do you place on Sacred Scripture?

"For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires."
(Hebrews 4:12 NLT)

"The law of the LORD is perfect, refreshing the soul;
The decree of the LORD is trustworthy, giving wisdom to the simple." (Psalm 19: 8 NABRE)

The word of God is spirit and it is life.

Take all your troubles to Jesus

Where do you need healing today in your life?

"Is it easier to say to the paralyzed man ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or ‘Stand up, pick up your mat, and walk’?
(Mark 2:9 NLT)

"But that you may know positively and beyond a doubt that the Son of Man has right and authority and power on earth to forgive sins—He said to the paralyzed man,  I say to you, arise, pick up and carry your sleeping pad or mat, and be going on home."
(Mark 2:10-11 AMP)

Encourage yourselves daily

How do you handle discouragement in your daily walk with Jesus?

"But instead warn (admonish, urge, and encourage) one another every day, as long as it is called Today, that none of you may be hardened [into settled rebellion] by the deceitfulness of sin [by the fraudulence, the stratagem, the trickery which the delusive glamor of his sin may play on him]."  (Hebrews 3:13 AMP)

"Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters. Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God."
(Hebrews 3:12 NLT)

Becoming like Jesus

Why is it necessary for Jesus to become like us in everything?

"Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people." (Hebrews 2:17 NLT)

"For because He Himself [in His humanity] has suffered in being tempted (tested and tried), He is able [immediately] to run to the cry of (assist, relieve) those who are being tempted and tested and tried [and who therefore are being exposed to suffering]."
(Hebrews 2:18 AMP)

(Mark 1:27 NIV)

Offer to Jesus your Time, Talent and Treasure

"One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living.

Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”  And they left their nets at once and followed him."
(Mark 1:16-18 NLT)

Respond to Call of God with Generosity

“I, the LORD, have called you to demonstrate my righteousness. I will take you by the hand and guard you, and I will give you to my people, Israel, as a symbol of my covenant with them. And you will be a light to guide the nations.

 You will open the eyes of the blind. You will free the captives from prison, releasing those who sit in dark dungeons."
(Isaiah 42:6-7 NLT)

The Choice. The Call. The The The Anointing.
