STUDIES FROM BRETHREN IN CHRIST

SERMON MENU SELECTIONS

3/15/2015 ~ All Your Heart, Soul, Mind, and Spirit

Darkness hides in the dark as darkness does.
God calls all to come into His light of truth with oneís all.


"Remember the former things of old, For I am God, ... ~ Isaiah 46:9-10

He has left a treasure trove of knowledge for us to know good from evil.
He is larger than any of our pettiness's. Small minded people have always
complained impatiently demanding action over caution. The Lord watches
and waits to find those in His service holding fast to what He has called
out for. As He declares the end from the beginning, it has all been created
for His pleasure. In Godís counsel, He finds no pleasure in rebellion or the
evils that turn away from the goodness He intended for the autonomous
life that He created. Godís plan is for life to live and as such He has
begotten His Son, His Spirit, for our redemption, to save us from
ourselves that we may grasp eternal life nobly.


'... all My heart and with all My soul.' ~ Jeremiah 32:41

... the mind of the LORD ... ~ 1st Corinthians 2:16

... the one who loves violence His soul hates. ~ Psalms 11:4-5

"God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
~ John 4:24


Created in His image, qualities of heart, mind, spirit, and soul
are gifts freely given to all who consciously live.


Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
~ 2nd Corinthians 3:17


Freedom is rendered to the deepest reaches of space, both extremely
close and vastly distant. Stewardship has gone astray as men have fallen
away from the blessings He offers more often engaging in harmful
pursuits reaching across suffering generations so detrimental to the meek.


For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; ... ~ Galatians 5:13

His truth is not hard to understand as serving each other takes on
high precedence. His nature of love renders service, and in His image,
He calls us out to do the same.


"Behold! My Servant whom I have chosen, ..." ~ Matthew 12:18

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while
we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ~ Romans 5:8


Godís service through Jesus brings us all to know how great
His love is for us; That our lives are more important than our deaths.
His wisdom remains for all that will have it.


Created in Godís Image He asks more of us not less

"The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked;
Who can know it?" ~ Jeremiah 17:9


... they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. ...
~ 2nd Thessalonians 2:9-12


"Behold, all souls are Mine; The soul of the father As well as the soul
of the son is Mine; The soul who sins shall die." ~ Ezekiel 18:4


Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.
~ Proverbs 16:18


For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust,
that He might bring us to God, ... ~ 1st Peter 3:18


"... sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it."
~ Genesis 4:7


... since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same
mind, ... no longer ... in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.
~ 1st Peter 4:1-2


... not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, ...~ Philippians 2:1-5


Man in his self-serving demise has turned away from the true God.
Does oneís mirror reflect the beast or the man?


But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God,
for they are foolishness to him; ... ~ 1st Corinthians 2:14


Thus says the LORD: "Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes
flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD. ~ Jeremiah 17:5


"... God made man upright, But they have sought out many schemes."
~ Ecclesiastes 7:29


In the depths of the caldron called humanity, dark clouds more
often cover the light God would want us to have. He sacrificed that we
might live in Him having the knowledge of creation in His battle to regain
eternally loyal souls. Purging self reveals the true spirit of God.


The spirit of a man is the lamp of the LORD, Searching
all the inner depths of his heart. ~ Proverbs 20:27


"... you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart
and with all your soul." ~ Deuteronomy 4:29


In liberty, sanctuary is present for each heart to fathom His revealing truth.

"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, and with all your strength." ~ Deuteronomy 6:5


Dedication delivers an honest soul if bias does not cloud ones convictions
to serve the master rather than a mere servant of one of manís many
delusional facades. Loving God with oneís all pursues God, not man.


... to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him,
to serve the LORD your God with all your heart ... ~ Deuteronomy 10:12-13


He has delivered the keys to enter His vault of truth. To fear Him with
great regard, to walk in His ways as announced, to serve Him in this
through obedience - as it has all been established for our good.


... to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God? ~ Micah 6:8

"... with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live."
~ Deuteronomy 30:6

God desires a heart full of passion in seeking His truth.
Those indifferent or actually cold will literally have hell to pay in their
avoidance of the All Mighty Supreme Creator of All. All reduces
back to the one and only true God where all will bow.


"... the LORD your God is testing you to know whether you love the LORD
your God with all your heart and with all your soul." ~ Deuteronomy 13:3


Many religions divide the truth of God delusionally choosing fantasy
over reality. Even atheism has a god of disbelief. To worship in truth is
a pursuit in discovering His will as laid forth for all to witness through His
Son, given to us, so that we may know God Himself and not just a mere
construction of man. Many well intended maintain the goodness He calls
out for but if done absent in regarding His will for return, vanity delivers
nothing. Swinging a rifle praising God does little for the betterment He
calls out for in each of us. Written on the heart where no gun can pierce,
truth can be known by those willing to know.


"... to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul." ~ Joshua 22:5

He instructs us as individuals to carefully heed
His word as to what drives our lives.


... those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works.
... ~ Titus 3:8


"And to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding,
with all the soul, and with all the strength, ... ~ Mark 12:33


In the gymnasium of emotions, our fitness in loving Him and others
forms the character He Himself searches for in us.


... 'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, and with all your mind.' ... ~ Matthew 22:37-40


Jesus himself proclaimed that fundamental to all truth is loving God
supremely, along with loving all others including self within His creation.
Peace is a moment often passed by within the recklessness of man
and the oppression we all bear.


The LORD preserves all who love Him, But all the wicked He will destroy.
~ Psalm 145:20


Commitment to God surpasses the evils shed to the past as
one awakens in Him.


... Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him. ~ 1st Corinthians 2:9


More than the imaginations dust of no more,
heaven sparkles truths unrevealed beyond splendor.


... when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life
which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. ~ James 1:12


We do not have to wait until arriving in heaven
to find blessings in the promise the crown of life holds,
as it delivers eternally, which includes now.


We love Him because He first loved us. ~ 1st John 4:19

Godís love extends much further than the earth
where He seeks for each one of us across all the ages of man.
This humbling beyond imaginable love is why so many hear His
steadfast call. His love remains as He calls to us.


"He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. ...
~ John 14:21


The brightness of love beholds the reflection of God. As two way streets
intersect, it is mutual love that is nurtured and cherished by God.


... "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him,
and We will come to him and make Our home with him." ~ John 14:23


Oneís life becomes an open book as He refreshes life that can be had,
as no mortal friend could provide. Loving God is where
the light of man ignites to become the child He loves.


But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him.
By this we know that we are in Him. ~ 1st John 2:5


Our own test of obedience reveals our spiritual heath and unity in Him.

... For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments.
And His commandments are not burdensome. ~ 1st John 5:1-3


Love contains all of the colors of light both visible and invisible.
His truth remains over the mere babblings of man.


"If you love Me, keep My commandments." ~ John 14:15

Knowing good and evil is essential in obeying the will of God over
the whims of man. Regret heals the penitent heart to stand strong.


"... for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me,
and have believed that I came forth from God." ~ John 16:27


Belief in God and His Son is Godís choice to deliver truth
to those who live upon the earth.


... And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come. ...
~ Revelation 22:17


Godís call to return with knowledge of Him is universal.
The spokes of His truth remain exposed for the discerning heart.

He desires that we all drink freely in the life He offers.
No force can persuade a man that has already decided one way
or another. His law has been given. It is our decisions that guide
our actions that we will account to God for.


For those that love Him embrace His truth
● Through love serve one another
● To seek Him with all oneís heart and soul
● To love Him with all oneís heart, soul, and strength
● To fear the Lord
● To walk in all His ways
● To serve Him
● To keep the commandments
● To do justly Ė stand on honesty
● To love mercy Ė hold a forgiving heart
● To walk humbly with your God
● To not listen to the words of falsehoods
● To hold fast to Him
● Take careful heed to do
● To love God with all oneís mind and understanding
● To love one's neighbor as oneself

Love can only work if it meets in the middle.
Godís way Has been declared by God.
In His light we live.

Darkness, somewhere below empty, has less than nothing.
