What does God say about enjoying this life?

Jn 10:9-10, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” But, who is the thief and what is this abundant life Jesus offers? Jn 15:10-11, “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” Apparently, in this world we can have a joyful life and it can be an abundant one; but keeping His Commandments is part o

What does God say about Jesus and Christmas?

Each year families gather to celebrate Christmas with parties, food, and gifts. Why do these families gather and what is the true meaning of Christmas? Let’s see what God has to say about it. Jer 1:4-5, “Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” God formed us, so doesn’t it make sense that He would know who we are, His individual purpose for each of our lives and what we need? Including our need for a savior? Rom 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” God told us, some 1,500 years before Jesus’ bir

What does God say about religion?

Mic 6:6-8, “Wherewith shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” Does God want our offerings, or is He asking us to respond to His love by passing it on to everyone we meet? Jam 1:27, “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherl

What does God say about wrestling with Him?

What does wrestling with God mean? Rom 12:2, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Does God offer us an explanation in Gen 32, when Jacob wrestled with God at Jabbok? Do the demons we have allowed in our lives, by our acts in defiance of God, lead us to conform to this world? Could we be transformed by reasoning with God and thus better able to face our demons, as Jacob dealt with his deceitful act against his brother Esau? How much pain do those demons cause when we allow them to live within us? Is humility a big part dealing with our demons? Gen 32:25, “A

What does God say about relationships?

2 Cor 5:17-18, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” Is our relationship with God the first one we need to establish? Matt 22:36-37, “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” Jn 15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” and Rom 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinn
