As we deal with all the different types of media, we need to be aware of what we are doing and saying. Here are some verses that tell us what God thinks, says, and wants from us as Christians.

Romans 12:18 “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with ALL men.”

Titus 3:9 “But avoid foolish disputes”

1st Peter 3:3-4 “Do not let your adornment be merely outward–arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel–rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.” Christians possess a quiet and gentle spirit.

Colossians 3:8 “But now you yourselves are to put off ALL of these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.

Matthew 5:22 “But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgement. And whoever says to his brother, `Ra’ca`! shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says `You fool!` shall be in danger of hell fire.”

Ephesians 4:31 “Let all bitterness, wrath, ANGER, clamor, and EVIL SPEAKING be put away from you, with all malice.” No more shouting or insults, no more hateful feelings of any sort.

2nd Timothy 2:23-24 “But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, KNOWING that they generate strife. And a servant of the Lord MUST NOT quarrel but BE gentle to ALL, able to teach, patient.”

1st Peter 2:1 “Therefore, laying aside ALL malice, ALL deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and ALL EVIL SPEAKING.”

Be careful what we are posting (That is us speaking), especially political. Don’t let words and speech cost us our salvation.

SMILE God loves YOU!! Have a good day all.

Soooo…There was this scientist that thought he had everything figured out so he didn’t need God. He told God that he didn’t need Him anymore because he had figured out how to make animals from cloning and from test tubes. He told God because of that he would have plenty of meat to eat. Then he told God that he had developed seeds to grow crops for him and the animals to eat. God asked him how he was going to grow the seeds because they would have to germinate in order to make edible plants. He told God he would plant them in dirt. God said, “That’s My dirt and if you don’t need Me, you can’t have/use My dirt.” As you can see, the scientist did indeed need God.

In Matthew chapter 7, there is a story about a Centurion. After Jesus preached to the crowd on the mountain, the Centurion approached Jesus and asked for His help to heal his servant. Jesus told him he would come to his home and heal the servant. The Centurion told Jesus to just speak the words and he knew the servant would be healed. Jesus commended him on his great Faith and told him when he got home the servant would be healed. Even as powerful as the Centurion was, he still needed Jesus’s help.

In our lives today, we tend to think we don’t need all that God can do for us and proceed to do things on our own. How does that work out? OK, most of the time, then we get in a pickle and ask for Gods help. We can’t do as the scientist did and basically tell God we don’t need Him. There will be times that we do need Him.
