Twitteneutics - Day 28

Here's what I gleaned from God's word, over the last several days.

Yes, I believe by faith. So does the atheist. The difference? My faith is in the Creator. There's is in creation (Hebrews 11:3).

This world never has been, isn't presently, and never will be worthy of Christian martyrs (Hebrews 11:35-38).

Allow me to testify about my Lord (1 Timothy 3:16).

Paul did not shrink back from the public, open-air preaching of the gospel. Sad that so many churches have shrunk back (Acts 20:18-21).

Pastor: do you preach sermon series about Star Wars and personalized license plates? Then the blood of your people is on your hands (Acts 20:26-27).

Jesus was speaking of Gentiles who would repent and believe the gospel, not Mormons who would blaspheme God by their idolatry (John 10:16).

What blessed assurance to be numbered among His sheep (John. 10:1-20)!

One reason why unbelievers hate Christians is because they are undeniable testimonies of the power of Christ (John 12:9-11).

Sadly, too many Christians will not testify about Christ for fear of being put out of the synagogue of the world (John 12:41-43).

God-given power, love, and self-control are the remedies for the sinful malady of fear (2 Timothy 1:7).

Christian isolationism is an oxymoron and dangerous to the spiritual health of the believe. Christians need other Christians (Proverbs 18:1).

I need to be a better listener in conversations with both believers and unbelievers. Sometimes I answer too quickly (Proverbs 18:13).

Mahria is evidence of the truth of this verse. I am blessed beyond measure by my wife (Proverbs 18:22).

Paul wouldn't find acceptance among many evangelicals, for he dared to speak of righteousness, self-control, and judgment (Acts 24:24-25).

Oh, Lord! Forgive me for every time I have lacked humility and for every time I have put myself before others (John 13:12-15)!

To love is Jesus' overarching command to His people (John 13:31-35). But love must be biblical and not simply based on selective definitions.

It cannot be any more clear. Sola Fide (Romans 3:28)!

When I need strength for the moment, for the situation, for the day I must meditate upon the grace of God (2 Timothy 2:1).

I must die to self and endure every day--not as a means of salvation, but as fruit of salvation. He is faithful when I am not (2 Timothy 2:11-13).

Lord, cleanse me from anything dishonorable in your sight, and help me, by Your Spirit, to cleanse myself (2 Tim 2:20-21). I want to be holy!

I KNOW that my Redeemer lives (Job 19:25)! His name is Jesus!

If there are times when you think integrity is all you have, thank God for how rich He has made you (Proverbs 19:1).

While fear and rest my seem paradoxical to the unsaved, to the believer it makes perfect sense. Fear God and rest in Him (Proverbs 19:23).
