“There seem to be a lot of ‘in name only’ Christians these day. People who spout scripture but whose lives don’t follow scripture. Some ‘cherry pick’ passages to put others down, show others the error of their ways, without realizing they, themselves, come up way short!
I will make a bold statement. If you are a true Christian or Jew, if you believe the Bible or Torah is the inspired word of god, THEN you would be well served to act on it. Claim it. Stand on the promises there within. Live as if you have that word in your heart. Act like it.
If nothing else the 23rd Psalm tells you how the true Christian or Jew lives, believes and acts. Take comfort and stand on the words attributed to David, the king and the other authors of the Psalms. I share this incredible promise with you. Take it to heart. Apply it.
Some won’t like what I say next. Others will love it.
You may or may not believe in god, nor must you to read this blog. There are many ways to describe the mysteries of the universe, source, infinite intelligence, divine mind, and more. I am for you deciding on your own, for I will not tell you what you must believe.
Whether or not you are Christian or Jew this Psalm attributed to David is amazing.
‘The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.’ The author says god is our unfailing and abundant supply. We shall not want for anything. He will take good care of us as a shepherd does his sheep
‘He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.’ God, or the universe, source whatever you choose, takes care of us in all ways; in every way!
‘Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.’ There is nothing to fear. Fear no evil for god is with us. He protects, keeps safe, and comforts us. Nothing can harm us in god. Fear not!
‘Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.’ Again, god meets all our needs. Even in the presence of enemies we are safe, abundantly all our needs our met. A banquet in presence of enemies. WOW!
‘Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.’ God’s goodness will always follow me. So think about this. There is nothing to fear. We can come to no harm. Every need is taken care of. We are comforted and loved.
So, what is it with name only christians who are afraid of others, who claim other’s sin is responsible for downfall? Who blame and accuse and deprive others from living happy, healthy lives, and attempt to prevent them from following their dreams. They hate and are afraid.
Why is it that they take money from them, prevent them from having the care and access to resources they need? These same name only christians allocate money to themselves, health benefits for themselves all while depriving others. They don’t live the Word?
There is nothing to fear, hate, or harm. God takes care of us. Rest in god’s word. Claim the promises and live as god intended you to live. Follow Matthew 22:36-40 When a disciple asked Jesus, ‘Master what is the greatest commandment in the law?’
Jesus said unto him, ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.’ Seems fairly direct. Love god. Love your neighbor.
Do you not get this? If you claim to be a Christian it seems you have your work cut out for you. The rest of us would benefit if we followed these words as well. Love and love some more. Stop the hate. Be filled with love. You are safe with nothing to fear. You are well provided for. There is plenty for all. Love god and love others as you love yourself. Treat everyone well. Be kind. Be generous as god is to you. Celebrate everything!”
