Hello, friend! Did you know before JESUS comes into a person's life they are dead in their sin? The HOLY SPIRIT is a huge part of WHO God is... to know Jesus even more, we need to learn more about the third person of the Trinity, The Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:3 tells us that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in us.... Jesus literally dwells in the body of a Christian! Like a glove, we are dead in our sin, when Jesus comes into our lives, we are alive and full of power, of love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7) because of the Holy Spirit!!
Jesus called the Holy Spirit "The Helper" in John 14:26. He helps us in everyway in our lives!! He is our Teacher, He helps us remember what God has taught us, and He interprets the Bible to us like no one else can. Pretty amazing, right?!
Omnipotent= all powerful
Omniscient= all knowing
Omnipresent= all present
HOW can God be all of these things? Through the Holy Spirit, that's how! Think about your breath, blow into your hand- you can't see it, but you feel it and you know it is real. Or think about the wind.... you can't see the wind. You can maybe see dust flying up in the wind, yet you know it's real. There is so much in life we can't see with our physical eyes, yet we know that they are real. The Holy Spirit is a mystery and sometimes we don't like to talk about Him as much as we should. ASK big questions, pray, SEEK GOD, and the Holy Spirit WILL help you! Watch and see!
Hello Friend! Disease, sickness, heartache, and sin are all part of this world, but do we have to live with it? The Bible tells us that Jesus healed ALL kinds of sickness, disease, and heartache. If Hebrews 13:8 is true that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, forever- then, NO!!!!! We don't have to live with the things that terrify us. Jesus STILL heals today. Our hearts need Jesus to heal and restore relationships with people and most importantly, between Him and us!
We are going to look at Matthew 8 and see three separate times Jesus healed physical sickness, and we are going to look at how JESUS cannot get sick! Why? Because He is perfect. He is THE Healer! Cancer, diabetes, and heart disease are all scary, but nothing is scary to God. We need to trust Jesus no matter what comes our way, even sickness- He will help us no matter what we face.
Are you scared about anything? Are you sad about anything? Jesus cares! He wants to help! Seek Jesus in all things. No matter the outcome, His HEALING IS PERFECT!! Trust Him!
Hello, friend! Do you think Jesus wants us to be happy? Of course He does! BUT, sometimes we think happiness means something different than what it truly is. Jesus preached on a hillside, and gave the listeners the best way to be blessed or happy. We call them the "Beatitudes"... and let me tell you they will be changin' your attitude!
We need to depend on GOD, comfort people who are hurting, feed the hungry, be meek, be peacemakers, humble ourselves before God and let Him scrub our hearts clean of sin, and be ready for persecution. All of these things will make us happy, if we ask God to help us! When we are selfish, we will end up miserable. We are supposed to have the same attitude as Jesus (Philippians 2:5-11)... He humbled himself, and died on the cross. Do you think that made him happy? YES!!!! Why, because He obeyed God and laid His life down for His friends! God gave Him a Name above every Name! Jesus always wins in the end!
No matter how dark or sad life can seem, look to Jesus to be blessed and for strength. He will give us what we need- at exactly the right time! The Beatitudes WILL change our attitudes! Listen and be truly happy!!
Hello, friend! The tongue is a powerful part of our bodies! It can bring so much good, or it can bring so much evil. Jesus used his tongue wisely. As soon as he fasted in the wilderness for 40 days and nights, and was tempted- one of the first things He did was use his tongue to call his disciples to follow Him. He used his tongue to teach the disciples, rebuke demons, heal people, and comfort the hurting.
We need to be careful what we say! In James, God teaches us that our tongues are like a rudder on a ship. Our tongues are small; but they steer our entire lives. When you squirt toothpaste out of the tube it can make a huge mess and you will never be able to put the toothpaste back in the tube. The same with words. When we say things that are hurtful, they can never be put back in our mouths.
How are you with your tongue? Do you use it wisely and use kind words with people, or do you say whatever you feel and hurt people? We all need to pray and ask Jesus to help us use words to help instead of hurt. I'm praying for you and for wisdom to use your tongue for good!! Praise Jesus:) He is worthy! Be kind to people, because life is just better when we treat others the way we would want them to treat us.
