3 – 35 Application for Sept 8-9 :: Acts 20:35

===

“…help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'”

Acts 20:35

===

This is another idea that is commanded many times in the bible – Old Testament and New Testament – from Moses, the Prophets, Jesus, and the Apostles.

There are vulnerable people in the world. People who follow God will help them.

Christians will share with others because Jesus has shared with them.

3-34 Application for September 1-2, 2018 :: Psalm 30:4-5

===

Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.

Psalm 30:4-5

===

We should sing praises.
We should give thanks.

To who? The Holy God
When? When we are weeping and when we are experiencing joy?
Why? For his saints, his anger is short. But his favor is forever.

Joy comes in the morning!

===

Sung by Tom Dodds and Scott Jamison. Song by Scott Jamison

Psalm 30:4-5

===

Proverbs 22: 1

A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold.

===

How can I comment on this one? It’s so simple and straightforward. Value you reputation more than you value stuff – even valuable stuff.

I’ll point out that this is one of the rare verses that suggests you should care about what people think of you.

But of course, what is most important is what God thinks of you. Do you care about that? Do you act like you care about that?

===

Song by Scott Jamison – Sung by Jason Harms – Instruments by Phil Krause.

===

‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the LORD…

Jeremiah 29:11-14

===

For the Nation of Israel (both old and new) the end will be good. That is our future and hope.

We will find God (the one who created all things and is in all and through all) when we seek him.
And he has plans for the good that will happen to us as a result.

Seek him.

Jeremiah 29:11-14

===

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Philippians 1:21

===

There is good and there is good.

For the Christian, it’s win/win.

While we are alive, we work to live as Christ would want to. For as long as we live. And we receive many blessings because of it.

But death is not the end, and it’s not horrifying and it’s not dismal, because we’ll gain by being with God in a much more full way when he takes us home.

Because of what Jesus has done for us, we can’t lose.

By Becki Warnock

Philippians 1:21

===

“Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all the remnant of the house of Israel, who have been borne by me from before your birth, carried from the womb; even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save.”

Isaiah 46:3-4

===

From birth to death – that’s the whole life of a saved person (those of the new house of Israel).

The God of Israel has
borne you,
carried you,
saved you.

That’s a lot. We should be grateful.
We should listen to Him.

3-29 Application for July 28-29, 2018 :: Psalm 42:11

===

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.

Psalm 42:11

===

Can you identify with this? The psalmist is talking to his own soul and wondering it doesn’t have peace. We’ve been there. But then the psalmist has a good remedy; good advice.

Hope in God – he is your salvation.
Praise him, he is your God.

===

By Phil Carlson

Psalm 42:11

===

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Philippians 4:8
===

Truth, Honor, Justice, Purity, Loveliness, Commendability, Excellence, Praise-worthiness.

This is what your saving, loving, mercy-showing, grace-giving God wants you to think about.

===

Performed by Becki Warnock, Song by Scott Jamison

Philippians 4:6-7

===

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

===

Peace is very good thing. If you have it in some form, thank God for it.

If you don’t, or you would like more, pray. If you are anxious, pray. Let your requests be made known to God. Remember to thank him for the good and the bad things in your life.

And God will give you peace. And this peace will, through the saving work of Jesus, protect your heart and mind.

Isn’t that a great promise?

===

Performed by Becki Warnock, Song by Scott Jamison

Philippians 4:6-7

===

This God-his way is perfect; the word of the LORD proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God?

Psalm 18:30-31

===

Perfection
True in Word
A Shield
A Rock

This is our God, the LORD.

Take refuge in him.

===
