It is all about that relationship

As a father is kind to his children, so the Lord is kind to those who honor him.
Psalm 103:13 GNT

http://bible.com/68/psa.103.13.GNT

Some people just can’t come to believe or even start to develop a relationship with God; let alone, cultivate their Spiritual life simple because the only type of love they are familiar with, even within their families, is conditional love.

What if, as parents, friends, family member, school mates, co-workers, strangers, what if we showed 1st Corinthians 13 type love?

Simple, unconditional kindness can go a long way.

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be loyal to the one and have contempt for the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. (Mt. 6:24)

While living in this earth suit on the strange, mucked up,  earth the strong harsh reality for me is that, we gotta sort out our priorities man. We gotta know where to look, who to listen to and how to follow basic in structions before leaving earth (the B.I.B.L.E) While some people’s advice is good & helpful, nothing beats Christ changing us on the inside.

Instead, desire first and foremost God’s kingdom and God’s righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Who am i watchin’? Who is watchin’ me?

Neon by Prodigal:

I’m not going to watching the daily news & reading the news paper more than reading God’s pages, The good news. I’m old enough to know that i am going to look to Him for answers, comfort and news on the past, present and future because He has my heart. He offers me so much more than this world & He doesn’t give me things as the world does. 

Jesus, while here on earth said, “Don’t be troubled. Trust in God. Trust also in me. “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. I will ask the Father, and he will send another Companion, who will be with you forever. This Companion is the Spirit of Truth, whom the world can’t receive because it neither sees him nor recognizes him. You know him, because he lives with you and will be with you.  “I won’t leave you as orphans. I will come to you. “I have spoken these things to you while I am with you. The Companion, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I told you.  “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give you. I give to you not as the world gives. Don’t be troubled or afraid. You have heard me tell you, ‘I’m going away and returning to you.’ If you loved me, you would be happy that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than me. I have told you before it happens so that when it happens you will believe.

Now,

Seek and you will find what you’re lookin’ for. Where your heart truly is, there you’ll find what you treasure. Where your treasure is (what is honestly  valuable to you) there your heart will be also (Mt. 6:21).

Jesus’ advice?

Desire first and foremost God’s kingdom and God’s righteousness, and all these things (what you really  need) will be given to you as well (Matt. 6:33).

Isaiah 40:30‭-‬31 NIV – Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; BUT those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:30‭-‬31 NIV

Psalm 1:1‭-‬6 NIV Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,  but whose delight is in the law of the Lord , and who meditates on his law day and night.  That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.  Not so the wicked!

Prayer: from Psalm 119:1‭-‬82 NIV

Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the Lord .  Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart—  they do no wrong but follow his ways.  

You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed

 Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees!  Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands.  

I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws.  I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.  

How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word.  I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. 

 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.  

Praise be to you, Lord ; teach me your decrees.  With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth.  I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches. 

 I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.  I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.  Be good to your servant while I live, that I may obey your word. 

 Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.  I am a stranger on earth; do not hide your commands from me.  My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times.  

You rebuke the arrogant, who are accursed, those who stray from your commands.  Remove from me their scorn and contempt, for I keep your statutes.  Though rulers sit together and slander me, your servant will meditate on your decrees.  Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors.  I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your word. 

 I gave an account of my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees.  Cause me to understand the way of your precepts, that I may meditate on your wonderful deeds.  

My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word.  Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me and teach me your law.  I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws.  I hold fast to your statutes, Lord ; do not let me be put to shame.  

I run in the path of your commands, for you have broadened my understanding.  Teach me, Lord , the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end.  Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law and obey it with all my heart.  Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.  

Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.  Turn my eyes away from worthless things;(phil. 4:8-9)  preserve my life according to your word.  Fulfill your promise to your servant, so that you may be feared.  

Take away the disgrace I dread, for your laws are good.  

How I long for your precepts! 

In your righteousness preserve my life.  May your unfailing love come to me, Lord , your salvation, according to your promise;  then I can answer anyone who taunts me, for I trust in your word.  

Never take your word of truth from my mouth, for I have put my hope in your laws.  I will always obey your law, for ever and ever.  

I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.  I will speak of your statutes before kings and will not be put to shame,  for I delight in your commands because I love them.  

I reach out for your commands, which I love, that I may meditate on your decrees.  

Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope.  My comfort in my suffering is this: 

Your promise preserves my life.  

The arrogant mock me unmercifully, but I do not turn from your law.  I remember, Lord , your ancient laws, and I find comfort in them.  

Indignation grips me because of the wicked, who have forsaken your law.  Your decrees are the theme of my song (Marching on) wherever I lodge.  In the night, Lord , I remember your name, that I may keep your law.  This has been my practice: I obey your precepts.  You are my portion, Lord ; I have promised to obey your words. 

 I have sought your face with all my heart; be gracious to me according to your promise.  I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes.  

I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.  

Though the wicked bind me with ropes, I will not forget your law.  

At midnight I rise to give you thanks for your righteous laws.  I am a friend to all who fear you, to all who follow your precepts.  The earth is filled with your love, Lord ; teach me your decrees.  Do good to your servant according to your word, Lord.

Teach me knowledge and good judgment, for I trust your commands.  

Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I obey your word.  

You are good, and what you do is good; teach me your decrees.  

Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies, I keep your precepts with all my heart.  Their hearts are callous and unfeeling, but I delight in your law.  It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees.  The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.  

Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands.  

May those who fear you rejoice when they see me, for I have put my hope in your word.  

I know, Lord , that your laws are righteous, and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me.  May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.  

Let your compassion come to me that I may live, for your law is my delight.  May the arrogant be put to shame for wronging me without cause; but I will meditate on your precepts.  May those who fear you turn to me, those who understand your statutes.  May I wholeheartedly follow your decrees, that I may not be put to shame

 My soul faints with longing for your salvation, (recall Is. 40:30-31…not be faint in following Him but only faint in longing for Him, His Salvation)

 but I have put my hope in your word.  My eyes fail, looking for your promise; I say, “When will you comfort me?” Psalm 119:1‭-‬82 NIV

http://bible.com/111/psa.119.1-82.NIV

With Christ’s Spirit in me I’ll be a Romans 12 Christian.

I will do my best to guide as God guides me: 

1 Peter 1:22‭-‬25 ESV Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding, ABIDING word of God; for “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever.” And this word is the good news that was preached to you. 1 Peter 1:22‭-‬25 ESV

Q&A with Christ (John 14)

Recorded in John 14 –

“Don’t be troubled. Trust in God. Trust also in me. My Father’s house has room to spare. If that weren’t the case, would I have told you that I’m going to prepare a place for you? 

When I go to prepare a place for you, I will return and take you to be with me so that where I am you will be too. You know the way to the place I’m going.” 

Q:  Thomas asked, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 

A: Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you have really known me, you will also know the Father. From now on you know him and have seen him.” 

Q (quest & request): Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father; that will be enough for us.” 

A (Answer with a question): Jesus replied, “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been with you all this time? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I have spoken to you I don’t speak on my own. The Father who dwells in me does his works. Trust me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or at least believe on account of the works themselves. I assure you that whoever believes in me will do the works that I do. They will do even greater works than these because I am going to the Father. I will do whatever you ask for in my name, so that the Father can be glorified in the Son. When you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it. “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. I will ask the Father, and he will send another Companion, who will be with you forever. This Companion is the Spirit of Truth, whom the world can’t receive because it neither sees him nor recognizes him. You know him, because he lives with you and will be with you

 “I won’t leave you as orphans. 

I will come to you. Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Because I live, you will live too. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commandments and keeps them loves me. Whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.” 

Q: Judas (not Judas Iscariot) asked, “Lord, why are you about to reveal yourself to us and not to the world?” 

A: Jesus answered, “Whoever loves me will keep my word. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Whoever doesn’t love me doesn’t keep my words. The word that you hear isn’t mine. It is the word of the Father who sent me. “I have spoken these things to you while I am with you. The Companion, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I told you. “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give you.

  give to you not as the world gives

… not as the world gives.

 

Don’t be troubled or afraid. You have heard me tell you, ‘I’m going away and returning to you.’ If you loved me, you would be happy that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than me. I have told you before it happens so that when it happens you will believe. 

I won’t say much more to you because this world’s ruler is coming. He has nothing on me

He has nothing on me

Rather, he comes so that the world will know that I love the Father and do just as the Father has commanded me. Get up. We’re leaving this place.
