jesus christ of nazareth: THE INTENTION IS ENOUGH - 07/29/19 04:34 AM
THE INTENTION IS ENOUGH
PSALM 21:11 Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed.
ELLICOTT'S COMMENTARY Though they have intended evil against thee, have plotted mischief, they have no power at all.
BARNES' NOTES The purposes of wicked men are usually much more than a mere "intention." The intention is accompanied with a scheme or plan in their own mind by which the act may be accomplished. The evil here referred to was that of resisting or overpowering him who was engaged in the cause of God, or whom God had appointed to administer his laws.

ISAIAH 51:16 I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand-- I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth, and who say to Zion, 'You are my people.'"

jesus christ of nazareth: WHAT WAS ITS PURPOSE - 07/08/19 03:25 AM
WHAT WAS ITS PURPOSE
ECCLESIASTES 7:8 The end of a matter is better than the beginning, and a patient spirit is better than a proud one.
PULPIT COMMENTARY The end is better because we then can form a right judgment about a matter; we see what was its purpose; we know whether it has been advantageous and prosperous or not.

jesus christ of nazareth: SEE THE LIGHT IN OTHERS AND TREAT THEM AS IF THAT IS ALL YOU SEE - 07/07/19 02:26 AM
SEE THE LIGHT IN OTHERS AND TREAT THEM AS IF THAT IS ALL YOU SEE
GENESIS 1:27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
BENSON COMMENTARY So God created man in his own image — In his natural, but especially in his moral image, with an habitual conformity of all his powers to the will of God, his understanding clearly discerning, his judgment entirely approving, his will readily choosing, and his affections cordially embracing his chief good; without error in his knowledge, disorder in his passions, or irregularity … (0 comments)

jesus christ of nazareth: CHRISTIAN INDEPENDENCE - 07/01/19 04:36 AM
CHRISTIAN INDEPENDENCE PHILLIPPIANS 4:12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. PULPIT COMMENTARY St. Paul had experience both of sorrow and of joy, both of distress and of comfort; he knew how to bear himself in both, because his chiefest joy was "in the Lord." This abiding joy raised him above the vicissitudes of this mortal state, and gave him an αὐτάρεκια, a Christian independence, which enabled … (0 comments)

A FULL LIFE IN THE EMPTIEST OF PLACES

jesus christ of nazareth: HE IS THE LIGHT - 06/24/19 03:59 AM
HE IS THE LIGHT PROVERBS 4:18 The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. MATTHEW HENRY'S COMMENTARY The way of evil men may seem pleasant, and the nearest way to compass some end; but it is an evil way, and will end ill; if thou love thy God and thy soul, avoid it. It is not said, Keep at a due distance, but at a great distance; never think you can get far enough from it. The way of the righteous is light; Christ is their Way, and he is the Light. The … (0 comments)

jesus christ of nazareth: A MINISTER'S TRIALS AND COMFORTS ARE PERMITTED AND SENT FOR - 06/21/19 03:49 AM
A MINISTER'S TRIALS AND COMFORTS ARE PERMITTED AND SENT FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE CHURCH  2 CORINTHIANS 1:4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. CLARKE'S COMMENTARY Who comforteth us - Who shows himself to be the God of tender mercy, by condescending to notice us, who have never deserved any good at his hand; and also the God of all consolation, by comforting us in all our tribulation - never leaving us a prey to anxiety, carking care, … (0 comments)

jesus christ of nazareth: A CHILD OF GOD - 06/15/19 05:38 AM
A CHILD OF GOD 1 JOHN 3:1 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. MATTHEW HENRY'S COMMENTARY Little does the world know of the happiness of the real followers of Christ. Little does the world think that these poor, humble, despised ones, are favourites of God, and will dwell in heaven. Let the followers of Christ be content with hard fare here, since they are in a land of strangers, where … (0 comments)

jesus christ of nazareth: THE WORD QUICKENS, REFRESHES AND COMFORTS THE MNDS OF BELIEVERS - 06/14/19 05:50 AM
THE WORD QUICKENS, REFRESHES AND COMFORTS THE MNDS OF BELIEVERS 
JOHN 6:63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you--they are full of the Spirit and life.
GILL'S EXPOSITION It is the spirit of man that quickens him; or which being breathed into him, he becomes a living soul; for the body, without the spirit, is dead; it is a lifeless lump: and it is the Spirit of God that quickens dead sinners, by entering into them as the spirit of life, and causing them to live: and it is spiritual eating, or eating the flesh, … (0 comments)

THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM PROVERBS 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. ELLICOTT'S COMMENTARY Where the "spirit of knowledge" and the "fear of the Lord" is counted as a gift of God. … (0 comments)

jesus christ of nazareth: GOOD MEN WILL BE CAUTIOUS WHAT THEY SAY - 06/12/19 04:59 AM
GOOD MEN WILL BE CAUTIOUS WHAT THEY SAY EPHESIANS 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. ELLICOTT'S COMMENTARY “the building up of the need”—that is, the supplying by suggestion of good the peculiar “need” or defect of the hearer’s spiritual state. The corrupt word is forbidden, not because it defiles the speaker’s own soul, and is an offence in the pure eyes of God, but because it is a sin against others, pulling down instead of building them up, … (0 comments)

jesus christ of nazareth: THE RETURN OF THE HAPPY SEASON - 06/11/19 05:01 AM
A HAPPY SEASON
PSALM 122:1 I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!”
BARNES' NOTES The return of the happy season when we were to go up to worship filled me with joy. The language is expressive of the, happiness which is felt by those who love God and his sanctuary, when the stated season of worship returns. The heart is drawn to the house of prayer; the soul is filled with peace at the prospect of being again permitted to worship God.

WE BELONG TO CHRIST
2 CORINTHIANS 10:7 You are judging by appearances. If anyone is confident that they belong to Christ, they should consider again that we belong to Christ just as much as they do.
GILL'S EXPOSITION So many judged of Paul by his outward circumstances of life, his poverty, afflictions, and persecutions; and despised him; whilst they looked upon the riches, eloquence, haughty airs, noisiness, and personable mien and admired them:

jesus christ of nazareth: PRAY BEFORE YOU OVERTHINK. - 06/09/19 03:41 AM
PRAY BEFORE YOU OVERTHINK
PHILIPPIANS 4:6 Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
PULPIT COMMENTARY The thought of the Lord's nearness should lead us both to be forbearing in our relations to others, and also to keep ourselves free, as far as may be, from worldly anxieties. "He careth for us."
DEFINITION of FORBEARING patient, tolerant, easygoing, lenient, clement, forgiving, understanding, long-suffering, resigned, stoic; restrained
