An Entirely New Existence

IMG_9370

Believers will experience an entirely new existence in which they will have perfect spiritual relationships with everyone else.  Believers will be like angels in that they will be spiritual, eternal beings who will not die.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Mark 12:25.

Happy Thanksgiving!

IMG_9266

Every good gift

and every perfect gift

is from above,

and comes down

from the Father of lights,

with whom there is no variation

or shadow of turning.

James 1:17

Since everything that I’m thankful for is from God, I’m giving thanks to Him today.  Wishing all of you a wonderful day today 🙂

Walk in Him

“Walk” is the familiar New Testament term denoting the believer’s daily conduct.  To walk in Christ is to live a life patterned after His.  See Colossians 1:10; 4:5; Romans 6:4; 8:1,4; 13:13; 1 Corinthians 7:17; 2 Corinthians 5:7; 10:3; 12:18; Galatians 5:16,25; 6:16; Ephesians 2:10; 4:1,17; 5:2,8,15; Philippians 3:16-18; 1 Thessalonians 2:12; 4:1,12; 2 Thessalonians 3:11; 1 John 1:6,7; 2:6; 2 John 6; and 3 John 3,4.

The Work of the Holy Spirit

The wind blows where it wishes,

and you hear the sound of it,

but cannot tell where it comes from

and where it goes.

John 3:8

Jesus’ point was that just as the wind cannot be controlled or understood by human beings but its effects can be witnessed, so also it is with the Holy Spirit.  He cannot be controlled or understood, but the proof of His work is apparent.  Where the Spirit works, there is undeniable and unmistakable evidence.
