Take Up Your Cross

Take Up Your Cross January 9th 2015

God’s Word is like a sword:  causing a natural variance as mankind is cut and pierced to the innermost; separating unto peace with God or unto disharmony amid the throes of the devil.

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her ...

You will reap what you sow upon the earth.

He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. (Matthew 12:30 KJV)

This scripture verse is short and precise in its inspired message.  God does not have a proverbial fence upon this earth that we can relax and rest upon, or go back and forth between choosing His way and the way of the god of this world.  God freely offers all ...

Will God find you faithful; or not know you as His own, ushering you into the fires of Hell for all eternity?

Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I judge not mine ...

Is your ugly sin confessed unto God and buried in the deepest sea or waving in your face like a banner?

He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. (Micah 7:19 KJV)

Have you opened your spiritual relief valve?

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9 KJV)

Confession of sin is not simply purporting our mistakes by verbal means or for the purpose of discussing them “out on the table” from within your personal dark closet, or in light of horrible natural consequences which have overtaken your life.  Confession of our sin is rather to whole-heartedly ...

Are you genuinely content or found lacking in this world?

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. (1 Timothy 6:6-9 KJV)

Genuine satisfaction is a great gain in ...

For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. (Psalms 1:6 KJV)

Are you stuck in a personal “pity party?”

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. (Philippians 4:11-12 KJV)

Paul was a biblical great who faced many difficult situations and ...
