Revelation 3:17-20

17. "Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing' - and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and baked -

18. I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and amount your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.

19. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

20. Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come into him, and he with Me."

Tessa I like the last word of the first verse "baked" lol old hippies never die they just bake alot :)

Sorry that I am late on this today, but I had a lot of trouble trying to find the perfect one. I think this is a very good one that I just happened to find though.



Isaiah 41:10 "Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

'But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.'

Jude 1:20-21
https://www.bible.com/bible/100/JUD.1.20-21

Christians ought to live life in anticipation of that which is eternal in Christ Jesus. Lord help me to pray. Help me to live this life in YOU. I get discouraged and tired and want to give in to my feelings of discouragement. Encourage and strengthen me to lean into YOU and depend on YOU for my strength and help me to endure the trails, great and small, that the world throws my way. Amen!

Psalm 138:7 "Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and you right hand delivers me."

Matthew 7:1-3 NKJV

1. "Judge not, that you be not judged

2. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.

3. And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?"

When I started bible studies many years ago, I was advised to see two people when I read the bible, God and myself, nobody else.

I often wonder how people who do not know God get along in life.
Psalm 28:7


New International Version
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.​

I agree. Those kind of people have absolutely no hope in forgiveness, very little hope in repentance and salvation, and fear death above all else. I'm glad that I serve a loving God that has taught me live without fear and always continue on having hope.

I also see desperation in their life when troubles come because desperation is of Satan and he has a hold on those who do not serve God.

Yes that's another good point. The people who don't know God only decide to pray to Him and trust Him when problems start occurring in their lives.

Yes. IOW when they need Him.
But God will not be mocked,,,He knows when a person is not sincere.
God sees the heart.

I would like to say that this Christian lives as God commands and hasn't created most of his own problems. alas no. I must have to hit the wall to I bleed to learn don't do that. I highly doubt many Christians also don't live as they please. if we did as He commanded perhaps the church would be more effective and our light.

I'm point to me, no one else. I'm where I am at mostly because of my foolish choices.

Hi Jason
We could have a problem because of a foolish choice, but most problems happen upon us.
For instance, bad health, problems with our homes or families, etc.
It's at times like these that I'm thankful for knowing God.
Not only does he give me strength, but if I follow His ways, problems are resolved in better ways.
I get less upset and everything flows more smoothly.

Still reap that sin.

If I commit murder,I can be saved but it doesn't mean I will be free from my sentence.my point isn't to negate yours but sadly christians often love that sin too.

In my mind a Christian that commits murder isn't a real Christian, besides,.. without repentance I'm not all too sure that one can be guaranteed salvation. However, don't forget that this thread that Papa Zoom started is for daily Bible verses so let's not get too carried away. :topic
