Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

592 LIVE BY FAITH.
Authored by stephen0porter on Sun, Sep 02 2018 - 05:08 PM
Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. Most religious people have heard the phrase ‘we have to live by faith’. It is generally used in conjunction with how to serve God, or some other religious lifestyle. It is written; Hebrews 11:6 But ...Read Blog »

Psalms 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. There was a gross joke that we ‘kids’ used to say. This was way back when I was in my teens.

590 SOMETHING TO OVERCOME.
Authored by stephen0porter on Sun, Aug 19 2018 - 03:14 PM
1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. We were all born into sin, and we have failed in what God has planned for us. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; This ‘sin’ nature must be overcome and every man ...Read Blog »

Hebrews 13:1 Let brotherly love continue. Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. I once found myself going into great detail explaining how something worked, to a man I just met. I was so smug in that I thought I was very knowledgeable and that he would learn a lot from me. ...Read Blog »

James 1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: James 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

Proverbs 9:12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it. We are interconnected, in life, by just being around each other.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. God is trying so hard to get mankind to accept His gift of salvation, through repentance, because He loves us. God knows what WE DON’T. Because ...Read Blog »

Authored by stephen0porter on Fri, Jun 15 2018 - 04:15 PM
John 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. There is no easy way to talk about this doctrine. The phrase ‘once saved, always saved’ is not in scripture. It is coined of the fact that Jesus is more powerful than anyone else and can keep those who give their ...Read Blog »

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Some years ago, in a moment of dispair, I asked the Lord if we could just throw away the book of my life and start over again.To my surprise, I received an immediate answer..."I cannot do that, for your salvation's in it, and I take you for better or worse.
