Eyesalve: On Purpose

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.” Romans 6:22

 

The Greek word that “servant” was translated from means to enslave. Some other versions of the Bible use the word slave instead of servant which would be a more accurate translation. Anyway, sure a lot talk about the evils of slavery. No one should ever own another man. In spite of that, we believers are slaves to God. I can’t help ask, what is so bad about being a slave? Christians are one on purpose.

Eyesalve: We Are Dead To Sin

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” Romans 6:2

 

There is a difference between falling into sin once in a while and living in sin. Just as Jesus Himself was tempted, though He never gave into it, we are tempted too. Though we choose to live a life apart from sin, we do at times sin. Thank God for the blood of Jesus which keeps us in right standing while we are working out our salvation. It is the attitude one has toward sin that exposes the real believer from the false. The real believer hates sin and wants to be free of it, while the pretender has not shook loose from the appetite for sin.

Eyesalve: It’s The Blood

And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.” Isaiah 4:1

 

It is similar in our day. We have people, who want to cover up their reproach and take on the name Christian, or even worse, take on the name of the Lord, but never surrender to the Lord. The only thing that can ever take away a man’s reproach is the blood of Jesus Christ.

Eyesalve: Robin Hood’s a Thief

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

“And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given. 25For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.” Mark 4:24-25

 

Liberals and socialists, even though some like to quote the words of Jesus, would not like what Jesus says in these two verses of scripture. They believe in the Robin Hood agenda, take from the rich and give to the poor. Though Robin Hood is looked at as a hero, he is nothing but a thief. The kingdom of God has different principles than the socialists. In the kingdom of God, those who have and use what they have for the glory of God, are those who will receive more. The little the ungrateful and unfaithful have, will be taken from them. Stay faithful saints and get ready to receive more spiritual blessings.

“Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom.” I Kings 10:8

 

Happy are you saint of God, if you are in a strong church with godly men and women who are filled with wisdom. You are blessed to be able to tap into that wisdom.
