Thief On The Cross. Nothing religious was done by the thief. He merely (1) confessed his sinfulness, and (2) acknowledged Jesus as “the Christ”.
Because God is extreme to the nth degree – God requires an extreme type of relationship from us. Once we get born again, we will continue growing deeply, naturally, into further maturity in Christ.
Growing is what should be happening after we are “born again”, Paul says. The natural response to Christ is to grab hold of the good soil – and flourish. Ephesians 1 is about flourishing, germinating naturally, sprouting strong and stable.

Are you tipping the scales to get what you want? Maybe using the wrong scales? “You are all wrong
because you know neither the Scriptures [which teach the resurrection] nor the power of God [for He is able to raise the dead].”
The Apostle Paul warns Timothy, and us, about a great falling away from the true Gospel of Jesus during the End Times. We are in those times.
⇑ PIC: The DNA of Jesus must look similar to ours, but He is both God – and man. Jesus was born on earth – as all man, and all God – for all time. First time this has ever happened, and last time. As God, He took on the form of a man – […]
It was not so nasty a word
We pray because God cares, and He hears what we say. The beginning of prayer is the purifying of our spirit. All that self-talk we all engage our minds in throughout the day? “Talk it” to God. If I take my eyes off Jesus… I become unbalanced in my soul. I take refuge in God… There is no better way to deal with life. The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R
It was quite the mystery of the universe. Sin had destroyed the lovely Garden of Eden relationship Adam and Eve had with Creator God. So God established a “covenant of forgiveness”, a system of sacrifice whereby His followers could be forgiven.
But it was obvious that we on earth could not go on for all of eternity sacrificing lambs for the forgiveness of sins. What did God have in the works? It remained a mystery for centuries. And then, finally, according to His perfect timing, He revealed the answer.
So why on earth not? Why on earth NOT believe in Jesus – and follow Him closely, intensely, with all that you are? What else do you have going? What else on earth is worthy of choosing – above Jesus?
It cost God to make us His children of privilege. Jesus made this privilege possible for all who come to Him – not just to some, but to all peoples. Some do reject Him (Hebrews 4:6). Their choice. It is a choice, to receive Him or not. Have you accepted salvation in Christ?
Chorus: I am redeemed, but not with silver; I am bought, but not with gold; Bought with a price—the blood of Jesus, Precious price of love untold.

Speaking to God silently inside your mind: God-Talk… is praying to God without voicing it out loud. “Self Talk” and “God Talk”- He sees into your thoughts, your feelings, your intentions, your falseness or genuineness, your honesty or lies, what you really are inside of your mind and heart.”
I thank God every day that He brought me up, out of the miry clay. I am sure as Hell that you have seen the miry clay, the sins. Have you, sure as Heaven, experienced the mind-bending, clean-up, brand new making power of Jesus – Creator God?
Have you heard Jesus’ good news that He can save your soul for all eternity? Have you wondered why you never made that clean break and accepted His offer? Why you have not followed Jesus Jesus compared His message (the “Gospel”) to planting seeds. He taught that His fallen archangel, Lucifer (the Devil/Satan and his […]
Have you ever in your life “approached” God? God has spoken into this world through His Word, the Bible. We know God by reading/studying… the Bible. In it He informed us about Himself, long ago, and now, today, He informs us as we read it — that He is approachable. He is the One (in three: the divine Trinity). All other “gods” are not His equal, nor truly any “God”.
It is totally biblical to name names and call-out false teachers, phoney baloney prophets, and false movements. We are encouraged to know well the doctrines of the Bible, so that we ourselves are capable of recognizing when teachers go astray from them. We are warned that teachers will go beyond what Scripture so clearly states, (giving us “Beyond the Burger” varieties).
