Sacred Truth Friday: Walk in Good Works

Today's Devo


For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:10 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/eph.2.10.NKJV

Walk in good works, for God so ordained that we should.

If you have not obeyed the gospel then please obey before it's everlasting too late.


The Gospel in a nutshell

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

1 Corinthians 15:1‭-‬4 KJV

Gospel Wednesday: Ephesians Chapter 5: Christ Died for Us

Ephesians Chapter 5

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful wor…

Sacred Truth Friday: Obey From the Heart

Poet's Corner Thursday: From Saul to Paul

From Saul to Paul

They laid their clothes at the feet of a
Young man named Saul
Who later became the apostle Paul
Preaching the Gospel to all.

Stuck in a sinful abode
Then he was blinded on the Damascus road
Of him, Jesus took hold

Without sight, food, water
For three days he prayed
In the city of Damascus he stayed
Until someone should show him the way

Ananias to him came
Saul would never be the same
He would have a brand new name

"Saul, why do you wait?
It may then be too late.
Don't let hell be your fate.

Arise! Be baptized!
Have salvation realized
And reach for the Heavenly prize."

Saul washed his sins away
Salvation he did not delay
Jesus he would never betray

He defended the way
From the Lord he didn't stray
He was faithful from day to day

From Saul to Paul
He exhorted others to obey the gospel call
He gave Jesus his all

Gospel Wednesday: Ephesians Chapter 4: Spiritual Maturity

Ephesians Chapter 4

I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore He says: “When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men.” (Now this, “He ascended”—what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.) And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equippi…

Gospel Wednesday: False Teachers

I've decided to go a different direction this Wednesday and post about false teachers. This is from my notes which I took during Bible study this past Sunday, Stephen Wiggins preaching the lesson.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

I John 4:1 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/1jn.4.1.NKJV
Don't believe everything we hear. Test all religious doctrines by God's Word the Bible.

By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
I John 4:13 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/1jn.4.13.NKJV

He has given of His Spirit.

These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

Sacred Truth Friday: Victory in Jesus

Today's Devo

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

I Corinthians 15:57 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/1co.15.57.NKJV

Victory through Jesus. We can always win through Him.

Victory in Jesus




I heard an old, old story,
How a Savior came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary
To save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning,
Of His precious blood's atoning,
Then I repented of my sins
And won the victory.


Chorus
O victory in Jesus,
My Savior, forever.
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him
And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory,
Beneath the cleansing flood.

I heard about His healing,
Of His cleansing pow'r revealing.
How He made the lame to walk again
And caused the blind to see;
And then I cried, "Dear Jesus,
Come and heal my broken spirit,"
And somehow Jesus came and bro't
To me the victory.


I heard about a mansion
He has built for me in glory.

To You
I will stay true

Gospel Wednesday: Ephesians Chapter 3: Boldness

For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles— if indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you, how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets: that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel, of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effective working of His power. To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidd…

Sacred Truth Friday: Christians Sharpen One Another

Today's Devo

As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.

Proverbs 27:17 NKJV

Christians sharpen one another in the following ways:

1. Confession to and prayer for one another. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
1. James 5:16 NKJV
1. https://bible.com/bible/114/jas.5.16.NKJV

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Sacred Truth Friday: Forgive

Galatians Chapter 6


Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For each one shall bear his own load. Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. See…

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

I Corinthians 10:13 NKJV

Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.

We must hide His Word in our hearts so we won't sin against Him.

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the…
