How does the gospel get distorted? How does the truth of grace and love get twisted into something it is not?
The approval of man. That is today’s verse. Paul says it plainly- “…If I were still trying to please man I would not be a servant of Christ.” Gal 1:10.
How many of us do this? How many churches continue to do this? Socially, things change and so to make everyone happy and receive the approval of being right without peers we make changes with no regard for God’s word, just the approval of others. Nobody wants to be labeled as unaccepting.
But if we don’t know the God, if we don’t read His word, if we don’t take the time to pour into and know His gospel then how are we to know when we are seeking the approval of man, not God’s peace?
It is easy to get tripped up and swept into modern trends and culture.

How do we know the Gospel? Do God and His Truth Change?// Wisdom Wednesday

I love the Bible. One of the absolute coolest things about the Bible is that, like God, time seems to all get blended together. The Prophets of the old testament often had no real concept of what it truly was they were prophesying about from a time standpoint. The first coming, the second coming, or all that is in between often gets folded on top of each other, yet it still sings to our hearts today just as it did 2000 years ago.

You have found Jesus. You realize He has been waiting for you the whole time, and now you are binging these episodes learning who God is, how to live a Christian life, and how to build a stronger relationship with God where Jesus truly knows you and you know Him. You’re learning, growing, and living as a Christian woman. It hasn’t been easy ditching all those old, bad beliefs about God and religion after leaving the church, but slowly but surely God has held your hand. You still have so much more growth to go, but you know that you know you are transformed, reborn and you belong to God. And now what? You start to get this little tingle. You want to share. Not just a little share, but you want everyone to know God’s love. The great commission. The last thing Jesus asked us to do in Mathew 28- bring Jesus and His good news to the world. You are not sure how, but you know He has equipped you in His perfect way. You know you are different since you came to Him, but just how different are you and could this difference of the Holy Spirit in you be more than just a guide? What are Spiritual Gifts, Anyway?

Does God want us to have vengeance or love?
You see, we are not ‘nones’- we are disciples of Christ. This means we do not operate from our sinful, very human, want to destroy people for believing ‘chickens are our spirit animal’ (or whatever the cause is) place in our human makeup.

We have been transformed, which means we operate from a place of love. Let’s look at today’s passage again-

The Hard, (but Good) Truth About Love// Wisdom Wednesday.

Guilt. It’s a heavy topic and heavy on our shoulders. You used to live by all the rules that man created.
You left all that, but why do you still get this immense pang of guilt when you order non-fat soy late with extra whip or pick up the bottle of wine with the cows with cute parachutes on the label at the supermarket?
Why the guilt? Will it always feel like this?
Today’s question:
How do we change our mindset, ditch the guilt and enjoy a Christian lifestyle all at the same time?

Proverbs just pours out wisdom, speaking of wisdom far more than any other book in the Bible. And that brings us to the question for today- What does the final line mean when it tells us, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction?” What does it mean to fear the Lord and why does that bring us knowledge, wisdom, and instruction?

You can not truly give anyone faith. Faith comes from trust, from surrender, from a relationship with our Creator. But what we can do, should do, were commanded to do is the great commission…
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…” Mathew 28:19
The last thing Jesus told His followers to do is to go out and make Him known!

When we are called to be the salt of the earth we are being asked to know how essential we are in seasoning this world with His essential, good flavor. What we say and how we say it must always be seasoned with the flavor and salt of grace and peace.

Today’s Challenge will take you from religion to relationship…But in today’s challenge, if you chose to accept it, try reading the bible as we discussed.

Spend as little as 5 minutes reading His word. Pick a spot. It does not have to be in order. In between clients at the salon, I’ll often pop open my pocket bible to psalms and read just one. Then take a few minutes to talk to God about it. What questions do you have for Him? What are your worries? What are your praises? Then do what the Bible tells us and meditate on His word. Think about what you read and let your heart be open to what it says to you. Sometimes it takes days, months years before it all makes sense.
God’s timing is perfect.
Just open your heart to His perfect will.
