All For Him!!!

Friday 1 John 5 4

 

Good Morning~~~Have A Faithful Friday~~~For Him

Live This Life Completely For The Lord; In Luke 16 we read about a rich man who was all about himself, and he after death suffered the consequences of the life he chose. It wasn’t wrong that he was rich, had nice things, what was wrong was he ignored the Lord and he most likely felt he had it all so he in no way needed the Lord. He got what he wanted eternal separation from the Lord.

Jesus described him as one who lived in luxury every day, providing for himself the best that
money could buy. caring nothing of others, and certainly not concerned for eternity. I believe
this is why sometimes the Lord doesn’t answer every pray we pray, and why the verse in:

Matthew 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a
needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God. When we are wealthy or have
much its harder to give it up and follow Jesus, it is more difficult to focus on the Lord we get too
busy focusing on stuff, making sure people don’t take what is ours.

The Lord wasn’t upset with him because he was wealthy, he was upset because he rejected the Lord and money became his god.We are here to serve the Lord we are to love him with our whole hearts. When we put money, wealth, things, people before the Lord it does anger him. In this case he never even trusted Jesus his money, and treasures were his god, he never was concerned about eternity, and after death it was too late.
Scripture says we were created to be in a relationship with the Father through faith in His Son. The rich man ignored the Heavenly Father, and paid the ultimate price. Our eternal destiny depends on our decision about Christ, and the price he paid on Calvary for our sins. What wealth is in our name here on earth will do us no good in eternity. What toys, and homes we own do no good, and will burn up in the end.
Despite what our culture, and the local therapists tells us, life is not about us. It’s about having a relationship with the Lord. Whoever accepts Christ’s gift of salvation will live eternally with Him in heaven. Those who reject Christ will suffer. Here on earth people look at the rich and famous get in where the middle class and poor can’t, well it doesn’t work that way with the Lord he sees us all the same; rich, poor, white, black, Hispanic, Asian, skinny, fat, tall, short. If you know any spiritually shortsighted people, pray that they will trust in Jesus.

Matthew 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Luke 16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
Luke 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
Luke 16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
Luke 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
Luke 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
Luke 16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
Luke 16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
Luke 16:27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:
Luke 16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
Luke 16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
Luke 16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
Luke 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

1John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
1John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
1John 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
1John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
1John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
1John 2:20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
1John 2:21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
1John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
1John 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
1John 2:24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
1John 2:25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
1John 2:26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
1John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
1John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
1John 2:29 If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

OH HOW I LOVE JESUS
There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
it sounds like music in my ear,
the sweetest name on earth.
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
because he first loved me!
It tells me of a Savior’s love,
who died to set me free;
it tells me of his precious blood,
the sinner’s perfect plea.
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
because he first loved me!
It tells of one whose loving heart
can feel my deepest woe;
who in each sorrow bears a part
that none can bear below.
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
because he first loved me!

MORE LOVE FOR THEE
More love to Thee, O Christ, more love to Thee!
Hear Thou the prayer I make on bended knee.
This is my earnest plea: More love, O Christ, to Thee;
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!
Once earthly joy I craved, sought peace and rest;
Now Thee alone I seek, give what is best.
This all my prayer shall be: More love, O Christ to Thee;
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!
Let sorrow do its work, come grief or pain;
Sweet are Thy messengers, sweet their refrain,
When they can sing with me: More love, O Christ, to Thee;
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!
Then shall my latest breath whisper Thy praise;
This be the parting cry my heart shall raise;
This still its prayer shall be: More love, O Christ to Thee;
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!

Love and Prayers
