Are You Ashamed

Are you ashamed of Jesus? Are you ashamed of the word of God?

If you’re ashamed of Jesus, that goes both ways. He will be ashamed of you.

Mark 8:38 (KJV) – whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of the Father with the holy angels.

Man-Made Gods

Many want man-made gods.

If its made by man, it’s controlled by man.

Man makes mistakes. So will your man-made god.

Romans 1:22-23 (KJV) – professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

No Forgiveness

We’re forgiven of all our sins, including speaking against Jesus.

But, there’s NO forgiveness for speaking against the Holy Ghost. In this life or the life to come.

Matthew 12:31-32 (KJV) – wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

Fighting

We don’t fight the person we’re exchanging harsh words with.

You’re fighting against powers you can’t see.

Know how to stand against it.

Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) – for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Who Do You Trust

We rely on ourselves, then man . . . then God.

And we wonder why we make so many unnecessary mistakes, and go through so many unnecessary trials.

Trust God, and you won’t need to rely on the other two.

Proverbs 3:5 (KJV) – Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct by paths.
