Amen Carol, there is a very bad mistake the so called Church makes today and that is .... asking Jesus (Yahshua) into our hearts....

we are not doing the asking, He is inviting us to share in His life....

if we except His invitation, like Moses, He gives us our orders....simply put....take up your cross and follow, don't look back.....

He gave us the direction to the Kingdom of Yahweh....

He said I am the entrance, there is no other entry point, legal entry.....(lot of people have climb over the wall)

He said once inside the entrance you will find a narrow path, follow that path, the way of Holiness, the way of separation from the world......

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Yahshua gave us "Directions For The Road Ahead" let us follow His instructions...... the one who drew the map with His own Blood!

--------------------
Strive to enter in at the strait gate:for many, I say unto you will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. ( Luke 13:24 )

Found in Him [thumbsup2]

Someone told me that posting photos slows down other people's computers, so I've cut back on using them. But this Thomas Kinkade painting is so beautiful, I couldn't resist!

OH... and a BIG AMEN to this message! This is a hard but wonderful, valuable life lesson to learn!

"My ears had heard of you
but now my eyes have seen you" (Job 42:5)

God is a GREAT BIG God and His strength and power is made PERFECT in our little human weaknesses!!

Carol,
I love Max Lucado. I also love Thomas Kinkade. Ya know what I would love to do?.. put both these gentlemen in the same room and have Max speak while Thomas paints and see what we come up with!

God Bless you Carol... have a great day!

Directions For The Road Ahead
by Max Lucado

The key question in life is not “How strong am I?” but rather “How strong is God?”

Focus on his strength, not yours. Occupy yourself with the nature of God, not the size of your biceps.

That’s what God told Moses to do. Remember the conversation at the burning bush? The tone was set in the first sentence. “Take off your sandals because you are standing on holy ground” (Exodus 3:5). With these eleven words Moses is enrolled in a class on God. Immediately the roles are defined. God is holy. Approaching him on even a quarter-inch of leather is too pompous…No time is spent convincing Moses what Moses can do, but much time is spent explaining to Moses what God can do.

You and I tend to do the opposite. We would explain to Moses how he is ideally suited to return to Egypt… Then we’d remind Moses how perfect he is for wilderness travel…We’d spend time reviewing with Moses his résumé and strengths.

But God doesn’t. The strength of Moses is never considered. No pep talk is given, no pats on the backs are offered. Not one word is spoken to recruit Moses. But many words are used to reveal God. The strength of Moses is not the issue; the strength of God is.
