DEATH

th-4

In our Journey, the end is coming….sometimes far faster than we can think…death!  Jesus says we can yield a great harvest if we, like a grain of wheat, die to ourselves and planted in the ground…yield “a great harvest.”   John 12:23-26

I like to be in control of my life.  I like to make my own decisions.   I like to decide how to spend my money.   But many times in controlling my life, I make bad decisions, wrong assessments, or burden myself with more work than was needed.  Sometimes I try fixing something and I should have just called for help from someone who knew what they were doing.

A few years ago, I had left for many months, and came back to a few potatoes in a bag which were smelly and useless.  I decided to cut them up and plant them.   For each planted piece, I got several smaller potatoes (end of the fall).  Dying to “themselves” they yielded “a great harvest.”

On my Journey, I am giving myself over to Jesus, dying to self, and living to Him and for Him.  It is not easy to do, but each time I do, I find my life more fulfilled.  Results are much better!

STUMBLING ABOUT!

Many of us on our Journey, stumble along without any direction or any knowledge of where we want to be.  We stumble because we don’t have a guiding principle, or goal in mind.   Jesus says, Are there not twelve hours in the day?  (yes)  Any one who walks about in the daytime does not stumble., because he sees the light of this world.   (You can clearly see your path, and what is in your way…so you are “sure-footed.”)  BUT…if any one walks about in the night, he does stumble, because there is no light in him—the light is lacking to him.  John 11:9-10

When I was walking from my hotel to the airport in Jamaica, right in the middle of the sidewalk was a manhole without a cover.  I went back that way one night to see if I would be able to see where the hole was, and to see if I could save myself from falling into this (deep) manhole.   There was no light for many blocks either way, and it was dark out.   If I was walking in the nighttime, I would have fallen into that hole and at least, hurt myself very badly.

JESUS SAYS, “I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!”  I WILL GIVE YOU THE LIGHT YOU NEED IN ORDER TO KEEP YOU FROM STUMBLING AND FALLING INTO DANGER AND HURTING YOURSELF.

“I AM” JESUS SAYS, AND REFERS TO EXODUS 3:14.  JOHN 8:58 “JESUS SAID TO THEM, ‘TRULY, TRULY, I SAY TO YOU, BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS BORN, I AM’.”  WHAT JESUS WAS SAYING AT THE TIME THAT GOD SPOKE THAT WORD TO MOSES, HE WAS SAYING IN THE PRESENT TENSE, I EXIST!  JESUS WAS THERE AT THAT TIME AND WHEN HE SAYS, “I WAS BEFORE ABRAHAM,” WE FIND HIM IN THE BEGINNING…JOHN 1:1-5 AND NOTICE WHEN GOD CREATES MAN IN GENESIS 1:26…”THEN GOD SAID, ‘LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE….”TO OUR LIKENESS…”  WHO WAS GOD SPEAKING TO….?

GOD SAYS TO JESUS (THE SON OF GOD) “LET US (YOU AND ME) MAKE MAN IN OUR (YOUR IMAGE AND MY IMAGE) AND IN OUR (YOUR LIKENESS AND MY LIKENESS).   THAT IS WHY JESUS CAN SAY, (JOHN 10:30) “I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE.”

Promise of God

“No one can snatch you from …My Hand”  “No one can snatch you from the Father’s (God’s) Hand.”  John 10:28-29

 

th

“My Sheep that are Mine, hear My Voice and they Listen to My Voice, and I know them and they follow me.”  

…I give them eternal life and they will never lose it….or be destroyed.”   John 10:26-30

We can be sure that God is on our side if we follow and do what He asks of us.  A disciple or follower wants to go in the same direction as the one they follow.

PURPOSE OF THE WORD OF GOD-BIBLE

II TIMOTHY 3:16-17…SAYS, “Scripture is …. so that you and I may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”  Instructions help us to prepare for the day, and the Bible is the Word of God that makes us adequate for the day, helps to equip us to do good work.  

In the world we live in, it seems that there is so much evil going on, but we can be equipped for good.  

The Scripture…is inspired by God and profitable (it’s purpose for each of us) for teaching us….It is for reproof, it is for correction, and it is for training us up in righteousness…

1.  It teaches us what we need to know to live on our Journey. Shows us the path to walk.

2.  It reproofs us…shows us how we got off the path to walk.

3.  It corrects us…shows us how to get back on the path.

4.  It trains us in doing right…shows us how to stay on the path. 

 

With this kind of help in our Journey, it would be wise to read it and heed it…to obey it.  Many hurts/pains can be avoided by using the Scripture (Bible) to help us do good.

SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN!

ISAIAH 55:10-11 says that the rain and snow come from heaven and water the land…and in the same way the “WORD OF GOD”–The Bible gives nourishment to you for your daily life.   Reading it will help you examine and think of life, it will challenge you in your Journey, and it will give you comfort and enjoyment.  Like any book, you will grow if you read it and if you don’t read it, you will not grow.

Want to get to know who God is and what He plans…then read HIS WORD AND FIND OUT WHAT IS IN STORE FOR YOU.

“THE WORD”  will always accomplish what it sets out to do.   It will never come back empty….but will do what it says it will do.   YOU CAN COUNT ON IT!

The Bible gives us basic instructions on so many things that help us on our Journey in Life.  We are on a Journey and it is not only about the Destination, but the Journey in getting to the Destination.

Life’s basic problems can have answers somewhere in the Bible.  YOU MAY NOT FIND THEM AT FIRST, BUT THEY ARE THERE.

THE BIBLE IS THE “HISTORY OF GOD” OR “HIS STORY.”  IT TELLS US INFORMATION HELPFUL ABOUT GOD FROM THE CREATION OF THE WORLD TO THE VERY END OF LIFE AS WE KNOW IT. 

Example:  Did you know in the Bible you will find what is going to happen to Gaza or Damascus?  (Amos 1:3-8-check it out-Gaza was created in what year?  Damacus is where?)  Written 2,770 years ago.

Up to date information written thousands of years ago, tells us what to expect…so why not read it and find out WHO GOD IS, WHAT HE IS UP TO, AND WHY HE LOVES YOU SO MUCH AND WANTS TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU!
