Exhaust our lives for Jesus.

“If by excessive labor we die before reaching the average age of man, worn out in the Master’s service, then glory be to God. We shall have so much less of earth and so much more of heaven. It is our duty and our privilege to exhaust our lives for Jesus. We are not to be living specimens of men in fine preservation, but living sacrifices, whose lot is to be consumed.” Charles Spurgeon 

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God,which is your reasonable service.

Too much hypocrisy in the church?

“Many people have forsaken the church, complaining that there is too much hypocrisy in it. Business is full of hypocrites, too, but no one stops making money because of that. The relationship between sexes, generations, and nations is full of hypocrisy. Notwithstanding, people fall in love, cohabit with children and parents. Nations coexist. How many remain bachelors and spinsters because married life is full of hypocrites?

“One place is surely full of hypocrites. It is hell. Instead of not going to church because you cannot suffer those who only pretend to be religious, you had better beware that you don’t go to hell which is full of men with false hearts. In church you are with the hypocrites for only an hour; in hell for eternity. If you loathe hypocrisy, then take decided steps to get to heaven, the only place where full sincerity reigns.” Richard Wurmbrand, Reaching Toward the Heights

Psalm 26:4 I have not sat with idolatrous mortals, Nor will I go in with hypocrites.

Jonah and the Savior.

Perhaps in Jonah 2, we have insight into the sufferings of the Savior. The waters of the wrath of God encompassed Him as His soul was made an offering for sin (see Isa. 53:10). A crown of thorns was wrapped around His head as He took upon Himself the Genesis curse. Jesus Himself said that He went into the heart of the earth (Matt. 12:40), into the pit of death.

But death could not hold Him; God spoke to death and brought Jesus’ soul up from the grave (v. 10; see also Acts 2:24).

Jonah 2:2 And he said: I cried out to the Lord because of my affliction, And He answered me. Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,And You heard my voice.3 For You cast me into the deep, Into the heart of the seas, And the floods surrounded me; All Your billows and Your waves passed over me.4 Then I said, I have been cast out of Your sight; Yet I will look again toward Your holy temple.5 The waters surrounded me, even to my soul; The deep closed around me; Weeds were wrapped around my head.6 I went down to the moorings of the mountains; The earth with its barsclosed behind me forever; Yet You have brought up my life from the pit, O Lord, my God.

Saul’s sinful heart.

1 Samuel 19:9. This is the third time Saul attempted to murder David. And it was all because Saul allowed the seed of jealousy to find root in the dirty soil of his sinful heart (see 18:8). Love rejoices at another’s success, while jealousy invites the spirit of hatred to enter and take up residence. Be so filled with the love of God that there is no room for any subtle sin. See Rom. 13:8–10 for how the Law and love are synonymous.

1 Samuel 19:9 Now the distressing spirit from the Lord came upon Saul as he sat in his house with his spear in his hand. And David was playing music with hishand.10 Then Saul sought to pin David to the wall with the spear, but he slipped away from Sauls presence; and he drove the spear into the wall. So David fled and escaped that night.

“I could prove God statistically…”

George Gallup, the famous statistician, said, “I could prove God statistically. Take the human body alone—the chance that all the functions of the individual would just happen is just a statistical monstrosity.”

Revelation 14:7 saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.

He created and set all in order.

“All material things seem to have been composed of the hard and solid particles above mentioned, variously associated in the first creation by the counsel of an intelligent Agent. For it became Him who created them to set them in order. And if He did so, it’s unphilosophical to seek for any other origin of the world, or to pretend that it might arise out of a chaos by the mere laws of nature.” Sir Isaac Newton 

Psalm 25:14 The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.

“Are there multiple “Gods”?

Are there multiple “Gods” as this verse implies, or is there only one as Deut. 6:4 states: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one”?

There is only one true God, the Creator of heaven and earth. The Bible teaches that God is Triune by nature. He exists eternally as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—one God in three divine, co-equal Persons. For example, Scripture reveals that Jesus Christ, God the Son, was preexistent before He was manifest in human form: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:1,2,14). Jesus said of Himself, “I and My Father are one” (John 10:30). For verses mentioning the three Persons of the Trinity, see Matt. 3:16,17; John 14:26; 15:26; 2 Cor. 13:14; Gal. 4:4–6; 1 Pet. 1:2; 1 John 5:7.

Genesis 1:26 Then God said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.
