Oct. 30, 2015 – John 11
Watch Your Step!
Please join with us sharing God’s Word daily. We will spend about fifteen minutes a day praying and reading every word in God’s Word in approximately three years.
“8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9, English Standard Version (ESV).
Thank you for joining us, as we prayerfully continue the Feast in John Chapter11; “The sickness of Lazarus. (1-6) Christ returns to Judea. (7-10) The death of Lazarus. (11-16) Christ arrives at Bethany.(17-32) He raises Lazarus. (33-46) The Pharisees consult against Jesus. (47-53) The Jews seek for him. (54-57)” – Matthew Henry Concise.
Today we prayerfully Feast in John chapter 11. I was reading a news paper and I see how Christians are being persecuted in the USA. They can’t pray in Jesus name at a military religious services. Yet these are the people who died to protect our rights for freedom of religion. I read where a grade school boy was humiliated and punished for talking about Jesus. If they truly don’t believe that Jesus is Lord, what makes them so afraid and angry at our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? This is not a new thing as we see as we read the Feast in John chapter 11 today; “51 He did not say this of his own accord, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation, 52 and not for the nation only, but also to gather into one the children of God who are scattered abroad. 53 So from that day on they made plans to put him to death.” John 11:51-53, ESV. God’s Word tells us that even the demons believe and are very afraid! Why do we share the Word of God? Because our faith produces action, in God’s name Jesus; “18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! 20 Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless?” James 2:18-20, ESV. Jesus is our Lord, God, Savior, friend and our everything! There is no other name under heaven by which we are saved. When we see that we have given up what we can’t hold onto (a life full of sin) for a new eternal life without sin. There is no way that we can go on without praising God and sharing Jesus’ love; “9 I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” John 10:9-11, ESV. There is no other name under heaven by which we can be saved! I think the truth may be that the non-believer has decided not to accept Jesus. This may be because their deeds are dark and evil. The light exposes that kind of work! Our faith produces a walk of love. “[Walk in Love] Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.” Ephesians 5:1, ESV. Let His light continue to be revealed through you! Watch your step. Always be aware of where you are walking! Let’s keep the first thing first! That is salvation through the blood of the lamb, Jesus.
Don’t get caught up in “religion”, it is about a relationship. Our salvation depends completely on God! We are the Saints that Jesus sacrificed his life to pay in full for our sin, when we repent and accept Jesus. He will come to get every Saint; “36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.” Matthew 24:36, ESV. We are building our relationship with Jesus right now, do not wait while you try to change anything. Click this link for more information; admenu.com/calling.htm .
