Learning the way of God more perfectly - Acts 18:
I hope you have read and grasped Part I and Part
and maybe even have listened to the audio of each one...
...maybe you have even marked your 'sword' for future use in helping others to live well to die well!
Tonight, let's look at a few more "L's"
to see how we can seek to live well so that we can
For none of us liveth to himself, and no
man dieth to himself.
For whether we live, we live unto the Lord;
and whether we die, we die unto the Lord:
whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
I Corinthians 9:14
A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding
shall attain unto wise counsels:
Proverbs 9:9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
Isaiah 1:16-20 ...Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow....
Proverbs 16:21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning. (Watch that tongue - and remember II Timothy 2:25 - Song:4:3: Thy lips are like a thread of scarlet, and thy speech is comely: - Song:4:11: Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb: honey and milk are under thy tongue; Song:5:13: His cheeks are as a bed of spices, as sweet flowers: his lips like lilies, dropping sweet smelling myrrh.)
II Timothy 3:14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
Philippians 4:9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
Be content - Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
or be led the bad direction
II Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
II Peter 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. (Paul warns us all - Galatians 1 and II Corinthians 11)
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk
as children of light:
Ephesians 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
II Peter 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Psalm 27:1a The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? ...
Psalm 36:9 For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.
Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (see faith today)
John 12:35,36 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
Psalm 69:36 The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
Amos 5:15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.
John 15:12,17 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
I John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us. See also Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. I Peter 1:20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Revelation 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Revelation 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. (from the Book, today!)
