Crumbs – Positive Faith Goes to Court

                                                                       

“’Come now, let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” Isaiah 1: 18 

“To have God speak to the heart is a majestic experience, an experience that people may miss if they monopolize the conversation and never pause to hear God’s response.”  Charles Stanley

                                                                                                                       

“Who can discern his errors?  Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then will I be blameless, innocent of great transgression.  May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:12-1

               “. . . Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his . . . He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness and light dwells with him.” Daniel 2:20 & 22

                                                                                                                        

 “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” Hebrews 4:12-13

    “I’m not advocating we live rigid, legalistic lives under a set of strict man-made rules. On the other hand, I don’t think it’s God’s desire for us to indulge ourselves by doing and eating or drinking anything we want when we want. God doesn’t want us to live with a sense of license or legalism. Why? Because they’re both bondage. Either one leads us into slavery, making us subject to a power and force other than God. As a result, we set up idols when we place more importance on certain pursuits, habits, or instincts that take priority over God.”  ELW

                                                                                                                                

 “Since God has so generously let us in on what he is doing, we’re not about to throw up our hands and walk off the job just because we run into occasional hard times.  We refuse to wear masks and play games. We don’t maneuver and manipulate behind the scenes. And we don’t twist God’s Word to suit ourselves. Rather, we keep everything we do and say out in the open, the whole truth on display, so that those who want to can see and judge for themselves in the presence of God.” II Corinthians 4:1-2 The Message
