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.

Eyesalve: Do The Same

Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. 14If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.” John 13:13-15

 

Some people use their authority for personal gain. Some use it to exalt themselves. Some use it to control people. Jesus used it to teach how to serve. Help me, Oh Lord, do the same.

Eyesalve: Kind Man

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32

 

As a creature made by God, we are called mankind. As a creature made in the image of God we must each be a kind man.

Eyesalve: Be Influential

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.” James 5:20

 

I suppose many of us, if we were asked, “is it right for a believer to want to be influential,” would say no. We would think, “we must be humble and stay in the background.” Consider this, each of us need to be influential. As far as humility, we must be humble in our influence. Desire to be influential, so influential that you can convert a sinner from his error and save his soul from death.

Eyesalve: Surrendering Would Be Easy

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.” Acts 26:20

 

Though you will not find the word “surrender” in the KJV Bible, the principle is seen in many places. The words, “repent” and “turn to God” allude to that principle. That is what the Christian life is, it is a life that is surrendered to the Lord. If it wasn’t for man’s pride, surrendering would be one of the easiest things he could ever do.
