Lips that lie are disgusting to the Lord, but honest people are his delight.
A sensible person ⌊discreetly⌋ hides knowledge, but foolish minds preach stupidity.
We intend to do what is right, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of people.
Finally, brothers and sisters, keep your thoughts on whatever is right or deserves praise: things that are true, honorable, fair, pure, acceptable, or commendable.
Why does God require us to repent and confess our sins to each other?
Because you’ll never make any progress living a lie.
God knows we’re sinners.
It doesn’t take Him by surprise when we admit the error of our ways to Him.
But it is uncomfortable to the flesh and fatal to our pride to humble ourselves before the Lord.
Crucifying the flesh nature is painful and necessary.
Christ Jesus did it once and for all.
Now, it’s our turn to pick up our crosses daily.
Humans were created to be containers of God’s glory.
We’ve become anything but.
And we take pride in that.
How far we have fallen.
Let God live through you and be the example of righteousness that is absent in society.
Do what is right.
Your integrity and character are revealed when you think no one is watching.
God is always watching.
He knows what you do in secret.
He knows the motives of your heart.
A person of understanding can draw out that motive.
Our world cares about reputation and outward appearances.
Things that can be managed and faked.
Entire industries revolve around spinning lies for fun and profit.
The corporate business model churches care about cash flow and repeat customers.
They care about wealth not health.
Big churches aren’t necessarily healthy churches.
Too often they become a product or a show.
There is little depth of relationship and discipleship.
We’ve been seeking the wrong things and going about it the wrong way.
Jesus modeled the way for us.
Pick a handful of trustworthy souls.
Invest in them.
And then send them out to do the same.
Churches are supposed to be faith families.
We’ve got a lot of dysfunctional families that need help getting healthy.
Overcoming denial is the first step in recovery.
You can’t heal a wound by saying it’s not there.
There is a massive shift taking place in the heavens.
Truth is more precious than gold.
We hunger and thirst for righteousness.
Only the Spirit of the living God will satisfy our soul thirst.
Audiences watching performances is not church.
It’s time to grow up.
It’s time to mature.
It’s time to be sons and daughters.
If you can’t see the resemblance of the Father in them, they must be someone else’s children.
You will know them by their fruit.
The just shall live by faith.
Lord, bring Your Kingdom.
