We can do something…

My brothers and sisters, what good is it if people say they have faith but do nothing to show it? Claiming to have faith can't save anyone, can it? Imagine a brother or sister who is naked and never has enough food to eat. What if one of you said, "Go in peace! Stay warm! Have a nice meal!? " What good is it if you don't actually give them what their body needs? In the same way, faith is dead when it doesn't result in faithful activity. James 2:14-17 Common English Bible

A condition of the heart

I Peter 3:10-11 (New Living Translation) For the Scriptures say, "If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days, keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies. Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it."

The faith to receive sight

Just a Thought: Who is more blind, the blind man or the man who will not see? Often times we miss the truth God has for us simply because we refuse to see it.

Just a Thought: Receive your sight

Who is more blind, the blind man or the man who will not see? Often times we miss the truth God has for us simply because we refuse to see it. This was the case of the rich young ruler. He came to Jesus bowing before Him and calling Him good, yet with proclamations of his own self-righteousness. He proclaimed he was seeking God's truth, but when it was presented to him, he went away as if he had searched for a thing and come up empty handed.

Surprises in unlikely places

"When Jesus came to his hometown, he taught the people in their synagogue. They were surprised and said, "Where did he get this wisdom? Where did he get the power to work miracles? Isn't he the carpenter's son? Isn't his mother named Mary? Aren't James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas his brothers?"

Come and worship!

Come, let's worship and bow down! Let's kneel before the Lord, our maker! He is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, the sheep in his hands. If only you would listen to his voice right now!
