Twitteneutics - Day 29

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

God is so long-suffering and patient. That God gives anyone the opportunity to repent is one more chance than anyone deserves (Jeremiah 15:19-21).

Jesus is coming back. He said it. It will happen. That's all there is to it (John 14:3).

Jesus asserted time and again that He was/is God. He made this truth abundantly clear to Thomas and Philip (John 14:5-9).

The Holy Spirit is not a "force." He is the third Person of the one and only triune God (John 14:16-17).

Only a living God can give life. Only a living God can give eternal life. Jesus is He! All other gods are dead and demonic lies (John 14:19).

God's Word is always timely. Found not only wisdom, but encouragement for today in this proverb (Proverbs 20:22).

I've read the Bible for 23 years and today I decided to look up the word "goads" (Acts 26:14). Every word of the Bible is important.

Paul hated Jesus as much as on ox hates being pricked by a goad. Paul did not seek/choose Jesus. Christ chose to save him (Acts 26:14-18).

Jesus did not give Paul an option. By His own perfect will Christ called Paul, saved Paul, commissioned Paul, and sent Paul (Acts 26:14-18).

Paul knew nothing of the gospel-less testimonies so common among professing Christians, today (Acts 26:19-23).

Like the common heckler, Festus could not make a logical argument against Paul's testimony, so he resorted to an ad hominem (Acts 26:24).

Any ministry that is quick to say their goal is not conversions, would not receive Paul's support (Acts 26:25-29).

I can do nothing God-glorifying, Christ-exalting, or Spirit-honoring apart from genuine God-given faith in Jesus Christ (John 15:5).

Authentic, lasting joy comes from abiding in the love of Christ. Lord, by your sovereign grace, help me to abide in Your Love (John 15:9-11).

I did not choose Jesus. He chose me. Such great comfort in knowing my salvation has nothing to do with my choices, but His grace (John 15:16).

If the unsaved world loves you, your ministry, or your church are you sure you, your ministry, or your church is in Christ (Jn 15:18-19)?

Are you a Christian trying to live under the God-hating world's radar? Then you might be seeking to be greater than He who save you (John 15:20).

Seeing the full glory of God will kill any earthly, sinful man (Exodus 33:18-23). By His grace, I will one day see Him face-to-face! SDG!

Peace with God ONLY comes through justification by faith, through the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1).

Endurance, character, and hope--these are the blessed fruits of suffering (Romans 5:2-5).

If you don't speak to others about sin, righteousness, and judgment, then your evangelism is not led by the Holy Spirit (John 16:8-11).

Real peace comes by way of agreement with God (Job 22:21).

Instead of just asking God for good things, may I walk uprightly before Him so that He may choose to bless my obedience (Psalm 84:11-12).
