Thoughts To Ponder In Your Walk With The Lord (Part Four)

The glorious fragrant aroma of the cross of His suffering, for us, will sustain us until eternity and for eternity.

God measures humanity by His Son, Christ Jesus the Lord. The summing up of all things is in Christ, as seen in Ephesians 1:4-11.

Our position in Christ is found in Ephesians 2:6 — “(He) raised us up with Him, and made us to sit with Him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus.” Come, sit.

Our life in the world (Ephesians 4:1) is our “walk.” Luke 9:23 is taking up our cross daily. Our attitude toward our spiritual enemies (Ephesians 6:11) is our firm stance of the promises, the gospel, and the Word — rooted and grounded in His love (Ephesians 3:14-21).

In daily life, our thoughts are occupied with things most necessary to our survival.

Being called by the name Christian does not make one a Christian. Living in a Christian nation or born into a Christian family does not make one a Christian. Attending Christian church does not make one a Christian. Being baptized does not make one a Christian. So, what defines a Christian? Believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross, accepting His free grace-offer of salvation, and trusting the Savior to get you to Heaven.

Decorating ourselves as etiquette demands, living in a country club community, or associating in elite circles does not make one “elite,” except in the eyes of self-deceit in the hypocrisy of high-mindedness and peers. “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:2b).

Unbelievers in Torments (temporary hell) are no longer the fools they once were on earth, for now they have become believers of the lost and dying. In other words, there are no unbelievers in hell.

I ask time to wait

but time says, “No.”

I ask the sunlight to stay

but it comes and goes.

I ask what life is all about

but life says, “Live and find out.”
