26:19 . winsome . the author . I just love the #bible too . #fish4peeps . another one of my favorite scriptures is here.. hebrews 13:5-6, which in a context of choosing full contentment instead of covetousness goes like this.. He (God) has said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” so glad for that--we can boldly say, “the Lord is my Helper, I will not be afraid. what can anyone do to me.” "He who promised is faithful. v.10|23

Know well. Live for. Obey the Word of God. And there is a natural outgrowth from that too. Respectfully go share the Gospel..tactfully..boldly with love and truth--and then leave the results in the hands of God. It’s His gig and they’re His people after all.

Not to frighten anyone really.. don't wanna do that, but it could get a bit more whack before it gets less whack here. But there's hope as well.

Christians have trials that work for them as they turn to the one God who can easily address em. Those not yet Christians; they often feel hopeless inside cuz they have troubles that work against them.. not knowing where to turn. It's cuz they need us to point them to the One who can solve em all. The Jesus of the Bible who really loves them!

You have a story to tell. This world has people who want and need to hear it. You have a gift to use, get out in the world and use it.

Love is… not rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful. 1 Corinthians 13:5

Give thanks where thanks belongs to go first, and lead others into this excellent life of gratitude.
The Bible says, "Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name." Psalm 100:4
The gates into God's Kingdom.. on into His presence, they're still open inviting all sinners like me in. Sure, the second Coming hasn't happened yet. And we can come to know Christ better daily and lead others to also worship Him. See Matthew 24:14 in the Bible. Facebook.com/shareJesus
Jesus spent two thirds of his public ministry with Gentiles, and you remember the five commissioning statements he gave to Jewish follower near the end of his life. You remember the mission regarding his Great Commision!
I love song Psalm 100, it's an invitation for the Israelites to enter into the presence of God through the temple gates. They were commanded to enter, to "shout for joy" and to "come before the Lord with righteously joyful songs" of praise (vv. 1–2).
Shouting for joy was an appropriate expression when greeting a decent monarch back in the day, for him in that ancient day.
Well, we have a good King from that day near us today. All the earth was to sing joyfully about God and we still can. The reason for this joyful noise was that God had given them their identity (v. 3). Have you let Him give you..you identity yet?
They entered the gates with praise, joy, prayer, and thanksgiving because of God's goodness and His steadfast, loyal, and enduring LOVE which continues through TO YOU, TO ME, to all generations (vv. 4–5).
Even when the Jews forgot their identity back then and they gradually wandered away from Him after other gods, the living God remained faithful, upbeat.. and He still invited them back. He called them to return and enter His great presence.
Think about how many people during our times ..have left church, and have totally left God.. after worthless idols. Let's example biblical worship first, and call others who've for whatever reason taken a stride from their Masters side.. back to him.
Five hundred people move to my city of Dallas Texas every single day now and the majority don't speak English. God loves em all--internationals--hes bringing the mission fields of this world here to me / us! You can be a grateful worshipper, a pray-er, a truth-learner, a welcomer, a goer, a Spirit directed giver, a sender ..for God's missions efforts. Do you have holy CROSScultural habits of hastening.. for the day of Christ's return?
Give thanks to the Lord for all that he's done for you! Shouldn't our greatest passion be Jesus himself today, and then bringing others to worship him?
