Philippians 2:12-18 ~ you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work

Today - we 2nd This Emotion.

Philippians 2:12-18

12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”

Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life.

And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. 17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.

Moving Week for my eldest son!  Surprise Table Pizza! We had an appetizer and a Tomato Bruschetta Pizza and one pizza to return with and, surprisingly,  found Dinner to be a Table. I think this is our first text of dinner out - 'Evah'. Table Pizza. Delicious and amazing. Not an Alka Seltzer moment - we hope. Oh Lord Deliver Us, Amen.

The passages are picked out before the text is known. The Word of God is living and active. While 'objects in mirror are closer than they appear' this is indeed how the posts are written. Movies tell us, "The story, all names, characters, and incidents portrayed in this production are fictitious. No identification with actual persons (living or deceased), places, buildings, and products is intended or should be inferred."

The Word of God is indeed Jesus. The Word of God made manifest. Jesus would tell us about learning the Word of God is a light to the Way, Truth and Life we want to lead.

Matthew 13:11-13

And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand."

Do we believe, "All Things work together for good, for those who Love the Lord and Work according to His Purpose" - we should Believe.

A matter of faith. I'm sure some events will have to be trusted to Father God, like losing a daughter at birth.

Consider ~

"you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work"

Noah obeyed.

David obeyed.

Peter asked Jesus to depart from Peter, he declared himself to be a sinner and not worthy to be Jesus'.

3,000 pages of the Bible -
how -  will we obey - all  -of the Word of God. Or even Mark 7.

To use the Word of God given to us personally - using His Gifts for our lives.

Jesus came to fulfill the Law. Every dot. Every Word of God is Truth and, therefore, Law. We are meant to obey the Law of Liberty - to believe Jesus bought us with a Price.

God tells us Jesus shows us our Father. His Mercy and Love. We honor our faith - our Love for Jesus by putting our lives, words, deeds in the faith He puts in our soul. I John 2 and 3 are John living a long life and realizing the depths of trying to live life with faith. The Bible tells us God could examine our every thought, every deed and every word. Without His Grace - we are sunk. And we would be sunk to forget we live because God died for us. There is absolutely no way to buy God's Grace with our goodness. God tells us this is Not Possible.

I told my son at dinner as he told a story about his mom and working to get along with the two of us - "I'm not always perfect, but then I am!" He laughed a good and solid 2 or 3 minutes heartily. I am forgetful. I surely will forget details when life presses in with many events. I am sometimes bright and sometimes I can't spell. My own Daddy called my brain "Sometimes". Leading to me praying for all of my life to be helped by the Holy Spirit. To make me mindful of when I need to use and ask for wisdom. To help me remember what needs to be accomplished this day. To pray for those who need prayers. To shop effectively and wisely. To work wisely. To use words wisely. To employ wisdom and mercy. To please God with my choices. To care for those God has given me and to be a good Stewart of His Blessings. To laugh. To have Joy. To trust God with my salvation and not be judgmental. To be wise. To employ mercy. Worthy of repeating. God Himself tells us the "Joy of God - is - my Strength." And I have been told by people who pray for me - I am strong. And I believe this to be God's gift. One of my best gifts is the ability to endure with Joy. To believe solutions will come forth. Believe all things work for Good in His Love.

We will treat our Salvation as precious. And at the end of the day, with God's Grace - we will rest and be glad the Creator of All Things, finds in His Love and Mercy, we are covered in the Name of Jesus. And in sincerely doing what we can and what we believe in Jesus - God is pleased. And in Jesus Christ we absolutely can approach our Father with confidence. This parallels the Book of Esther doing her best for her people - the Jews.

Abba God,

We ask Jesus to pray with us. Increasing the Holy Spirit within us.

You are our Father, Your Kingdom is Heaven and all the good earth belongs to You. Help us each day to see Your willingness to bring more of Heaven to earth - the lives of the people we Love and You have given us - to have the Helper - Holy Spirit. You are Holy and willing. You give us the Name of Jesus to ask with and cover ourselves in Jesus for Salvation. The awe of being asked by You - for Your Kingdom in Eternity. More today.

Give us this Day - our Daily Living Bread - Jesus. We will need Your help today. And rejoice in Your Love and Blessings. Listing them to You - today.

Forgive me my smug virtues, my flaws I like, my true weakness and my sin. Help me to have Joy for my Grace from You and work this with wisdom and with Joy for others. Grace is the fuel of Joy.

Lead me to not employ my own quiet life in paths You'd not have me travel. Help me to call upon Jesus and be diligent and disciple in Your Joy.

We want and need You father God to protect us from evil. We believe and Trust You.

And as John found, Your's is the Kingdom of Wonderful Love and Eternity. Your Word is the Power to give us hope, faith and Love. Your Glory is where we Want to be. Thank You for Revelation 6 - John finding himself eye to eye with wonderful Jesus again.

Thank You, Your Word is Life for us all. For Barcelona - struck by lightning - hatred and terrorism. Our world is small enough to share the news of wickedness all over the globe and fear. We will not have fear. We will Thank You, Jesus, the murderers are caught and pray for all Your Love and Protection in a world You said would have troubles.

We pray for the Will of God to find each of us working in tandem for God's Kingdom around us. The Word of God to live and dwell making our lives meaningful, Love and mercy covering the earth with God's Goodness. Seeing what is Good and spreading Jesus as Good News.

Thank You, today, Father God, In Jesus. Amen.

♔ Lord Jesus Saves!  †

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He has saved all who call upon His name and rely on Him for His Grace. The Scriptures are living & active and are for understanding the Lord Almighty. Biblical readings are chosen from the Ecumenical Christian Church and the Nicene Council, 325 A.D., approved Apocrypha. People remember not just from reading, but by sight and orally- an image has been added as well as audio readings. God tends to link the passages together with fascinates - this blogger, Anne-Laurel Gardere

About Me

My photo
Email registry at bottom.! “All Scripture is inspired by God” (2 Timothy 3:16). Men “moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:21). The Holy Spirit carried men along, moving and guiding them as they wrote in their own words what God wanted them to say. The Bible is unique; comprised of 80 separate books, & written over a period of thousands of years by more than 40 writers with one Author, spanning the centuries, different states of peace & war & different situations in life. The Bible answers the question: of who is God, who is man & what can their relationship can be. Although the Bible was written on perishable material and copied by hand for many centuries, its accuracy is not in doubt, proven by Dead Sea Scrolls and papyrus from 2,000 years. The Bible has survived persecution & criticism to be read with great interest in each generation. The Bible gives witness to the greatness of the Creator. A loving Father concerned for all of his creation. With each verse of the bible witnessing to God is love and the multitude & vastness of His attributes. The Bible was written for you. <><
