Words and Deeds

Romans 1-3

Paul lays out here the paradox of doing. You cannot do without doing by faith. You cannot faith without faithing by do. 

Romans 1

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[c] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,[d] unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Something I've learned is that all these things start with thoughts, since you do not know to cast them down you assume they are your thoughts, dwell on them, maybe even w…
Acts 20-22


Acts 20

22 And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there, 23 except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me. 24 But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself,[b] so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. 25 “And indeed, now I know that you all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, will see my face no more. 26 Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men.27 For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.

Acts 214Finding the disciples there, we stayed with them seven days. Through the Spirit they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem.  10After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. 11Coming over to us, he took Paul's belt,…

Acts: Journey into the perfect will of God.

Acts 18

24Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. 25He had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and he spoke with great fervor[b] and taught about Jesus accurately, though he knew only the baptism of John. 26He began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they invited him to their home and explained to him the way of God more adequately.  


Here is a man that is already in ministry. He is preaching the repentance of John, similar to many evangelical churches today. He knows nothing of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit yet, but he is working faithfully and diligently with what he has. Then he is brought a word of correction to add to what he knows and he accepts it and progresses further. 


I see several things about this that I need to learn:


I don't need to know everything about everything before I start something. I must be diligent to use what I know …

The three keys to promotion in God are:
Promotion comes from GodYou don't have to run after promotion, promotion will chase YOU down. Psalm 75:4-7 (New International Version)
4 To the arrogant I say, 'Boast no more,'
       and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns.
5 Do not lift your horns against heaven;
       do not speak with outstretched neck.' "
6 No one from the east or the west
       or from the desert can exalt a man.
7 But it is God who judges:
       He brings one down, he exalts another.1 Corinthians 12:18 (New International Version)18But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.Promotion starts with the heartDavid never said "I WILL become King!" He simply ser…
