1 Corinthians 12:12-27 One body and many members of Christ!

1 Corinthians 12:27

“Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” 

King James Version (KJV)

Good morning, afternoon and evening to you all!

I do pray that you all will have a blessed day and that our GOD will be with you and give you all of the comfort that you will need! And I do pray for all of those who do not seek after GOD and HIS son JESUS right now that will from here on. For if you are lead here today, I pray that GOD will give you the answers that you need to give you insight and faith in HIM to be a member of the body of Christ. Amen!!

We who are followers of JESUS are in the body, making us one family of GOD. There are no man made barriers that divide us from one group of people to another. We are one unit. Forget about the skin color, where a person came from, how little a person has, what clothes they have on, their height or weight, what language they speak. How much education they have or how little they have. Or anything else that man has thought of to divide people from being united in Christ!

I thank GOD for JESUS!!!! JESUS is the savior for all mankind!!!

Getting past the stereotypes we judge people by, I feel that once we do that and redo our thinking to think Christ like we wont care about the ways of the world. For how they judge us with their own ways. We will see a person, a soul with flesh, and to focus on the soul getting past the outside appearance to their heart. Doing so with GODLY discernment.

1 Corinthians 12:27

24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: 

25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 

26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 

28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 

29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 

30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

Pastor Douglas J. Helton of Calvary Baptist Church, St. Charles Iowa.

Being in the body of Christ we are compassionate towards one another at all times, knowing that the person in front of you has Christ in them. We can not divide our selves and destroy each other and assume GOD will not see what is in our hearts. Or to do evil in the dark and closed places assuming GOD does not have the power to know all. GOD does know all.

The sermon that my husbands friend, Pastor Helton is teaching here in the 8/11/19 message is about just that. Any hurtful words, actions or thoughts GOD know all about it. Pastor Helton speaks of Galatians chapter 5:22-23.

Galatians 5:22-23 KJV

22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

KJV: King James Version

Let us get more into the practice of doing what this verse mentions about the 9 fruits of the spirit. We will then have more inner peace with in us. Knowing that we are doing GODS will and are spreading the peace that is in us to others.

Galatians chapter 5 22-23

May you all receive a blessing fro reading GOD’s word in this post. Please do share this message to others so they can read it and be blessed to from GOD and to know our beloved savior Christ Jesus! Pass it forward!

Peace!

GOD is greater than all of our problems!

Good morning, afternoon and evening everyone!

I do pray that all is well with you all no matter where you are today! For this is another day that our beloved GOD has made for us all! A new day and a new beginning

We all go through a test or trials in life. I go through working in an office where there seems to be out of 150 people 2% are believers. So the non-believers run from upper management to the subordinates. This also means that what ever proper morals they may have are reflected in social skills and work skills as well too.

Stay in prayer, find a quiet place at work and silently pray to our heavenly FATHER GOD who sees all and can see the hurt you go through from the wicked ones.

Psalms 37:32 Context

29The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever. 

30The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. 

31The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. 

32The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. 

33The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.

 34Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it

35I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

We believers are very different. This reflects on how non-believers will relate to us. And here is where the trouble begins. They will judge you by what they know, if they don’t know GOD then they judge us by they way of the world. Creating a problem when they need to just simply mind thier own concerns and be right

Yesterday my daughter was asked to look at a house for someone. She asked if I wanted to go along and I did. The owners were home when we went in with the realtor, which is unusual. After we toured the house we all stood in the kitchen chatting. Such a sweet elderly couple I thought, I wish I could give them one of the tiny Bible booklets (tract) that I give out. Then I wondered if it was appropriate to give out a Bible tract in a situation such as this. But after thinking about who Jesus is, I thought yes, it absolutely is appropriate!

Colossions 1:15-17 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers:…

Eight Undeniable Truths That Are Going to Change Your Life

Liked this very much! Envy is something like an illness, which can cause more infectious problems the longer one has it. Let it go and find peace.

The truth does not change based on your ability to accept it.

Here are some of those truths that help me stay in control of my life.

Matthew 5:44 Prayer Lists. Pray for you enemies as well as your loved ones too.

Stay in prayer and keep close to GOD’s unconditional love, and HIS son JESUS!!! Peace!

GODs Team! Be encouraged.

Good morning , afternoon or evening to all who are reading this blog today. I do pray that you all will have a blessed day in the LORD!

As each year in time, it gets closer to the return of our JESUS coming again to take all of the people who love HIM away with HIM. We are here in this fallen world to cling to our faith in our loving GOD and HIS loving son JESUS. Our trust and prayers to our GOD for us to have eternal peace.

Confusion, defiance, going against all that is right and Holy by calling it wrong seems to be the normal way of things today. It must be close to what Noah saw in his days before the great flood.

And in all of this confusion we wait in prayer for our saviour to return. But while we are here we must…

Instead of complaining, we need to give thanks to our loving GOD instead!

Complaining and Murmuring : KJV – King James Version – Bible Verse List. “Neither murmur ye, as some of them [ancient Israelites] also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.” “Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins? Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.Aug 3, 2015

Good morning everyone, or whatever time it is for you right now!

I have heard a good sermon from my husbands Pastor friend Doug Helton of Calvary Baptist Church in Iowa. It had more than one message in it, but the main message was about how we all at times will complain when we should be giving thanks to our beloved GOD for all things. See the Pastors video below.

Pastor Douglas J. Helton Calvary Baptist Church St. Charles, Iowa
http://www.calvary-baptist-church.com/

It is an easy habit to get into to complain, and a very hard one to get out of. Babies, Children, Teens, and Adults in all stages of life complain. Without a second thought to it. Not realizing we should not be doing it or are doing it.

We are blessed by GOD’s by will of the things HE has given us. As you read this blog, you are blessed. You have the life GOD gave you, healthy enough to be able to read the blog, the ability to read, to see it, and to understand it, to have the equipment that allows you to read this blog along with having the internet service. So that alone is at least 7 blessings right there! (add a smiley face here.)

So let’s continue to count our blessings each day. You will see GOD as been blessing you all the while.

With complaining, we will at times only see the annoying thing(s) 1st and not the true loving blessings that our GOD has given us. Our GOD does not like that from us to have this mindset. It is like when our earthly Dad will cook a good meal and when were hungry. It was a nice plate of veggies, grains and protein with some freshly squeezed juice with ice in it. Then we complain that the ice was too cold or not cold enough in the juice!

We all complain at times, and we complain about other people complaining! When you are around people who complain and you are trying not to, and you hear their complaints it can rub off on you. So then it can have you pick up their bad habits of complaining and not even realize it too. This is something the Bible will mention in these scripture below about us complaining.

Part of Pastor Doug Helton’s sermon on 9-1-19.

As I had thought about the message, I want to challenge myself as not to complain, or when it is at all possible to walk away from a person politely when they are complaining or point out the good in what they are talking about. Such as if they have an issues like the child did with the meal mentioned above…..I could say “at least you have ice. “The drink would not be cool without any ice at all.”

GOD knows what we need and we need to accept the current blessings so we will get more each day. Enjoy your day, and challenge yourself as to train your thoughts on not to complain but to give thanks to our GOD for all that HE gives us at all times. Stay in prayer as you go through your day to avoid complaining, because it will be very hard/impossible not to have the LORD in it to help you.

Praise and glory be to YOU dear beloved FATHER GOD at all times now and to and through all of eternity long!

May you all have a blessed day, please pass this blog forward with the words of GOD in it to others so they will be blessed as well too. Pass it forward! Stay blessed and know that our GOD loves us all!

Peace!
