Hebrews 9:22 “In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” (NUIV)

I Timothy 2:5 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus!” ~Debra

thHave you ever heard the saying “Stop and smell the roses?”  In this fast pace world we live in, we fail to see the beauty that surrounds us.  Look around and see a glimpse of the power, majesty, and glory of His creation. 

Matthew 6:28-29 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

Psalms 104:1-35 Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent. He lays the beams of his chambers on the waters; he makes the clouds his chariot; he rides on the wings of the wind; he makes his messengers winds, his ministers a flaming fire. He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved. …(ESV)

He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.   Isaiah 40:29-31

 

 

As believers we are encouraged to bring others to church with us.  It’s wonderful to fellowship together, provide encouragement, and grow in the knowledge of God’s word.

It occurred to me as I read my Bible that people weren’t brought to the synagogue to see Jesus.  He went out among the people and that’s where they saw His power!

I’m not saying we shouldn’t invite people to church but that we should lead by example and that will bring them to the church.

When is the last time a family member, friend or co-worker saw something happen in your life that could only be explained by God’s power working in you.

“My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power” (1 Corinthians 2:4).

We need to remember it’s not words that impact people; it’s God’s power working through us! ~Debra
