Adversity To Victory

Posted 12-31-2023 at 09:15 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Matthew 6:13 - "And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one."

There is no temptation or sin in heaven. This prayer does not imply that God wants to tempt us. We know from James 1:13 that it is impossible for God to entice us to sin.

This kind of praying is important because it requires us to face our need for grace. It helps us to align our heart with heaven -- one of absolute dependency on God.

Case's Faves For Steaks: You'll Want To Know These Places

Posted 12-31-2023 at 04:22 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I've done Top Tens in the past here in this blog page, but if I have favorites of something, then why stop at just ten?

This is, after all, City-Data, where it's great to be alive, and also where it's great to share lists of things. People are on a need-to-know basis, and lists exist since that's part of the idea of this website in the first place. So, what do I have up my sleeve here?

Ol' Case is going to unveil favorites of a particular genre,...

Advancing My Faith

Posted 12-31-2023 at 03:13 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Romans 10:17 - "So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing, by the word of God."

Observation:

IF I WANT TO KEEP ADVANCING MY FAITH, I HAVE TO BE PLANTED.

I PLANT MYSELF IN THE WORD (THROUGH AFFIRMATION, MEDITATION, AND SEEING MYSELF IN THE WORD) AND IN A PLACE WHERE THE WORD IS PREVALENT AND THE PEOPLE AROUND ME ARE CONTINUALLY SPEAKING AND LIVING IT.

2 Corinthians 3:18 - "But we all, with open face...

Achieving The Unachievable

Posted 12-31-2023 at 11:38 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Exodus 14:16 - "But lift up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children if Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.”

God generally doesn't call us to do things we can accomplish in our own ability. He calls us to achieve the unachievable and accomplish the impossible.

Mark 4:3,8 - "Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow his seed. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and...

Acceptance Through Works

Posted 12-31-2023 at 10:14 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Genesis 4:3,4 - "And in the process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering."

CAIN'S OFFERING WAS REJECTED BECAUSE HE OFFERED THE FRUIT OF HIS OWN LABORS WHILE ABEL OFFERED A BLOOD SACRIFICE THAT PROPHESIED OF THE COMING OF CHRIST. THIS LED TO A RAGE IN CAIN THAT CAUSED...
