===

Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

Romans 12:11-13

===

Paul is looking for intentionality – in spirit, in serving the Lord, in rejoicing, patience, prayer and contribution.

We should look at this list and see how we’re doing, in our church and in the world.

Are you intentional with these things?

3-17 Application for May 5-6, 2018 :: Romans 12:9-10

===

Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.

Romans 12:9-10

===

This is a section of Romans where Paul encourages us towards Godly behavior in how we should interact with other people. It’s very helpful, practical and challenging.

Perhaps the most challenging in these two verses is that our goal should be to outdo one another in showing honor.

Even if we don’t feel like it. And we often don’t.
That’s what genuine love is.

3-16 Application for April 28-29, 2018 :: Isaiah 43:25

===

“I, I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins.”

Isaiah 43:25

===

Here’s some good Gospel from the Old Testament.

Our sins are blotted out and forgotten.
God does this for His own sake, but it’s very good news.

And the New Testament shows us how He could do it: Through the atoning work of his Son.

Isaiah 43:25

===

Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth! Say among the nations, “The LORD reigns! Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.”

Psalm 96:9-10

===

Worship
Tremble
Speak

Before the LORD

And what should you speak?
The world, which God created, is firm in its place.
This God will be just in his judgments.
Worship him!

I think it’s Biblical to say that one way a person can worship our God is by telling others to worship our God.

Psalm 96:6-8

You are invited into the court of the King.

You are invited into the court of the King.

For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols, but the LORD made the heavens.

Psalm 96:4-5

Fear that God greatly. Praise that God greatly.

For great is that LORD.

One thing that it’s clear that the Psalmist wants us to do: Praise God.

Sing to the Lord.
Bless his name.
Tell of his salvation.
Declare his glory and his marvelous works.

To everyone.

We should want everyone to like (praise,love,worship)God better.

…looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:2

Why should we look to Jesus?

We should look to him to see how we should act.
Because he sacrificed for us.
We should look to him to see why we should worship him.
Because he is seated at God’s right hand.
We should look to him to see what he’s doing for us
He has founded and is perfecting our faith.

And he has done all of this for joy.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us

Hebrews 12:1

Two Directives:
Lay aside every sin.
Run the race with endurance.

Two Motivations:
There are so many that have gone before us with strong faith that God rewarded.

===

The steps of a man are established by the LORD, when he delights in his way; though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD upholds his hand.

Psalm 37:23-24

Does a Christian fall? Does someone who is a child of God lose his footing?

Yes.

But he will not be cast headlong, into the dirt. He will not fall all the way.
He will not fail all the way, or die all the way, or lose all the way.

Because his steps are established by the LORD.
Because the LORD upholds his hand.

How is the LORD upholding your hand today?
