John - 8 ๐โค๏ธ๐ 8 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.
14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me. ๐โค๏ธ๐ #jesus#bible#god#love#Saved#christian#christianity#jesussaves#praisegod#holyspirit#inspiration#faith#jesuslove
Sometimes it's difficult to remember that we were created by God to live an eternity but because of the original sin we are doomed to live a lifetime, but the good news is we can be given eternity back, by accepting Jesus Christ and living a life according to His teachings, it's easy when said but difficult when in real life, temptation is everywhere, we need to be obedient, immerse ourselves in His word, so when temptation comes, because it will, we can be prepared and strong in Christ, do surrounded yourself of wise council, because they are of great help when our flesh is weak.
Day 118/365 #daysofdelight "The Lord delights in those who dear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love"
Today was not the easiest for me, I've struggled with overcoming a bad habit of mine that has come creeping back. It thought I had won the war I have been fighting with it for years. But I think what I need to realise is that in order for there to be a permanent fix for this I need to completely hand it over to God, and to fully trust that He is in control and that He can handle this for me. I know that I'm too weak to do this without Him, I just pray that I have the courage I need to face this with Him rather than trying to face it alone and wallow in guilt. I am hoping that tomorrow I can set aside a good amount of time to spend in prayer and conversation with God. I want to continue growing closer to Him day by day, even the days that are a little shaky.
Pray for our persecutors. We conquer hate with love. God didn't just save us, he called us to a Holy life. We need to live called. Too many of us live saved. It's time to live called. It's past a burning bush moment. It's not about finding God's Will it's about living God's ways. When we live called we believe the best in people. We help sooner. Too many Christians are obsessed with the concept of being called, but not willing to understand and walk in the commitment. Our culture is spinning out of control. Sometimes it's easier to scroll past the need. When we face troubles and challenges, we must remind ourselves we aren't just saved we are called. Remember to say we are called to this in moments that we want to give up. We are called to this. We are called to have Jesus at the center of everything in our lives. Jesus has a plan and a purpose to our lives. We weren't created to figure out life without Jesus at the center. We are created to have the void that God placed at the center of our hearts that only God can fill. Nothing satisfies that place except Jesus. Thank you King Jesus. Faith moves mountains. Gratitude is the greatest attitude. #faith#faithbuilders#christian#bible#biblical#called#purpose#human#unity#community#writer#writersofinstagram#poet#poetry#poetsofig#blogger#LoveGodLovePeople#hillsongnyc#sermons#pray#disciple#women#womenempowerment#timely
DoersโNot Hearers Only
21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
NOTE: If you hear and heed, you will be blessed in what you do.
If you are bitter, you can't heed God's word.
