Observing all Things

Image result for free clip art observation

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19-20

“How much does the Bible get in the way of what you believe? If you’re like most Christians, you believe in Jesus, but you’ve compartmentalized your faith so that your Bible beliefs have only a little influence over other areas of your life. For many, the Bible doesn’t influence what they believe one iota! As long as they claim to believe on Jesus, they think they can believe whatever they want about issues in life and society. That is absolutely wrong! All that this means is they have not been taught to observe all things Jesus commanded:

If you’re going to be a disciple of Jesus, you can’t observe only the parts that you like. If your attitude, your doctrine, or your worldview doesn’t line up with the Word of God, you need to change it, not change the Word of God.” Andrew Wommack [for full article]

  1. Absolutely excellent thoughts! And all are spot on. We need to consider all things in the light of Jesus’ thinking first above all else in every aspect of our lives. Faith in Christ carries over into every part of our lives, or so it should!

    1. Amen.
      Our beliefs are either Christ-centered or ‘other-centered’.

      It’s funny, because I have not been able to comment on your blog, and I have just finished reading your post “Are You Kidding Me? and wanted to make a comment, so I came back here (to look for an older comment to see if I could use that format to comment).
      What I wanted to share was a quote from Reinhard Bonnke : “The less Holy Spirit we have, the more cake and coffee we need to keep the Church going.”… [in this case ‘fast food’:). Whatever happens to ‘give us this day our daily bread- not the kind that nourishes the body, but the spirit. Whatever happens to we cannot live by bread (physical food) alone, but by the very words from God.

      Thanks & Stay Blessed.

      1. Thank you so much for that quote, I love it! It seems that it’s rooted in truth too. I can’t imagine singing a hymn to the Lord with a breakfast burrito sitting next to me on the seat!

        BTW, I write my blog in connection with the church I attend. The Elders of the church have asked I not have a comment section because they are afraid of the possible “false doctrine” some may espouse in that section.

        I can always try to monitor it, but something might slip through so I usually engage others on their comment sections. Hope you understand. If it weren’t for so many who wish to “teach” rather than “learn” or even ask questions, it may not be this way for my blog!

        Thank you for the super comment and God bless you in your work for Him!

      2. This is such a profound statement (wanting to be teachers instead of learners) and if we could get rid of our pride and focus on learning, putting down strong roots first instead of going out having sword fights to exalt our limited understanding of the word, we’d be flourishing and not perishing due to a lack of knowledge.

        “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”

        I am blessed by this comment. Thanks much.

      3. Again, thank you for such a kind and well stated reply! And every word is true. We really need to focus on study in context before we espouse what we believe to be the word of God.

        Learn how to rightly divide the word of truth before we teach it to others!

      4. “Learn how to rightly divide the word of truth before we teach it to others!”

        That’s wisdom right there and thank you so much as well.

      5. Thank you but it is so important to have the gospel message as correctly understood before we teach it to others. That’s why we have the words in James to warn that not everyone should be a teacher as they will incur a stricter judgment…(James 3:1).

        We don’t want to teach people in the wrong ways, as that is not what God wants at all!
