I’ve heard many people say, “I feel closer to God when I’m high.” However, is it true? Does weed get you closer to God? Can you sense His presence more? Are the effects of marijuana so great that you can actually feel God? The answer is no! Feelings are very deceptive.
Bible verses about mountains
Mountains are significant in the Bible. Not only does scripture use them in a physical sense but scripture also uses mountains in a symbolic and prophetic sense as well.
Bible verses about loving others
We have lost sight of love. No longer do we love the way we should and this is a huge problem in Christianity. We’re afraid to love others. There are many believers who need support from the body of Christ but the body has been blinded by selfishness. We say we want to love like how Christ loved but is it true? I’m tired of words because love doesn’t come from the mouth, it comes from the heart.
I once heard the story of a girl who was sexually abused by her father for years. This caused the young woman to go down the wrong path in life. One day that woman walked past a church, when she walked in the pastor was preaching about forgiveness.
Today I opened Facebook and like everyone else I scrolled through it and a certain picture captured my attention.
It was a picture of a woman I’ve known for many years, very modest, respectable and I admired her. The reason this picture got my attention is because she looked way different; the way she dressed, her makeup, her hair, the places she was spending time in and her way of speaking.
Bible verses about salvation
Many people ask, “what is salvation?” In the Bible, we see that salvation is the deliverance from danger or the penalty of sin. Are your sins forgiven? Do you know the gospel (good news) that saves? If you don’t know the gospel and you can’t explain how to be saved, you need to examine yourself. You may ask, am I truly saved?
I had tiny toes with me today as I had to go back to the start of the book of John to re-read and take notes.
Bible verses about regeneration
We don’t preach on the doctrine of regeneration anymore. There are many people who call themselves Christians who are not Christians. Many people have all the right words, but their heart is not regenerate. By nature man is evil. His nature leads him to do evil. An evil man cannot change himself and will not choose God. That is why it says in John 6:44, “no one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him.”
3 John 1:4 “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.”
As I write this I’m staring on and off at my three children, their little faces, hands, and huge smiles radiate with joy when they catch me staring at them.
Marriage is a wonderful adventure in where we are challenged to become more like Jesus Christ. We quickly realize, well I realized, that it can be challenging to become more like our Father in heaven when we are naturally wanting to do what we want, what benefits us, what we like.
