Twitteneutics - Day 19

Here's what I gleaned from the Word of God, over the last couple days.

What a wonderful model for OA preaching. The Word read/recited, then brief exposition, then the proclamation of the gospel (Acts 2:14-41).

God is sovereign. He shares His sovereignty with NO ONE. He is free to do as He pleases, consistent with His character and nature (Exodus 9:16).

A tragic example of death-producing worldly grief, not repentance-producing godly grief (Exodus 9:27-35; 2 Corinthians 7:10).

Lord, help me to be other-minded, today. Show me how I can serve others--putting others over, above, before myself, for Your glory (Philippians 2:3-4).

The Hypostatic Union: Without it there is no means of atonement, no means of saving grace, no means of salvation (Philippians 2:5-8; Hebrews 1:3).

Yes, EVERYONE will bow the knee--the atheist, the agnostic, the pagan, the idolater. Sadly, these will bow before they perish (Philippians 2:9-10).

The atheist and the false convert have more in common than a lack of understanding regarding the justice of God (Proverbs 28:5).

Professing Christian: if you scoff at the use of the law in evangelism, beware and repent (Proverbs 28:9)!

God is mighty to save, and He hears the prayers of His people. But if you know not Jesus as Lord and Savior, He hears you not (Isaiah 59:1-2).

True prophets of God make no promises of wealth and take no credit for healing. Today's TV false prophets do the opposite (Acts 3:1-13).
