Today’s Tweets (short version)

If we can see things as Jesus sees them, it’s only then that we can see what idols really are.

……

It seems only reasonable that if we don’t seek the LORD with all our heart we will only be an empty shell of a Christian.

……

One of the great mysteries of the universe is how people willingly serve the devil and still think they’re smart.

……

All you need is Jesus.

…..

The religious system needs Christmas, Easter, Weddings, Funerals, Baptisms etc. to justify its existence.

But Christians don’t need the religious system.

…..

Christmas and Easter can be used for the Gospel.

And yet the early church did not have either Christmas or Easter.

They certainly had the Gospel.

And every time they broke bread together they had “Easter”.

…..

Who ever you are, Jesus Christ doesn’t want you to honor Him with sentimental platitudes if you don’t follow Him. He wants you to believe Him and do what He says.

……

Who decides right from wrong?

…..

It is well with my soul because of the Cross.

……

How much has God forgiven you?

It’s totally because Jesus suffered, bled and died in our place.

…..

When Jesus said He is the Light of the World He wasn’t joking. He means without Him we’re totally in the dark.

…..

The best place to be is to not to expect to receive anything from people, but just be content in the LORD. And if you do receive anything from people, that’s a pleasant extra to the contentment you already have.

…..

“You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.” (Exodus 20:7)

When you think about this verse it’s easy to see these days what the name of the LORD is: it’s Jesus Christ.

This is the name of the LORD, and the only name which is taken in vain.

Are any other names taken in vain?

People are only interested in taking the name of the LORD in vain.

I’ve never heard of any other name taken in vain.

Never heard Sam Smith’s name taken in vain.

In fact, if you ever took another name, other than Jesus, in vain, people would think you’re stupid.

Cause everyone instinctively knows that Jesus is the name of the LORD, and takes His name in vain, and no other.

…..

A recent interchange on the subject of “Imagine” by John Lennon:

Me – Lennon should have learned through the failure and atrocities of Communism that a society without God is an evil society, not a utopia.

Jack – Lennon was against religion, not against God.

Me – That might be true on the surface, yet, if Lennon believes there is a God, but there’s no Heaven or Hell, then isn’t that a religious belief?

And isn’t he saying that religion is the cause of all the problems, yet isn’t he just espousing another religion?

He believes in some kind of God, just so long as that God is not the God of the Bible? So, what makes the God of Lennon the true God, and the God of the Bible a false God?

Jack – (replies in expletives)

(In other words, he has no intelligent reply)

……

What’s the use of having “Christianity” and not having Christ?

…..

If you find it hard to accept that God Almighty would condescend to live in mere men and women, like you and I, then consider that God went even further than that in becoming a Man. God was even willing to become a Man. Jesus is fully God and fully Man.

…..

The Christian life is intensely personal, between you and God, and yet at the same time we are members of the body of Christ.
