Live Life Between You And God, Not You And Man

This last couple days I’ve just been getting into the word and have been soaking God out of everything and I just want to share with you all what he has giving me the last couple days =)

Galatians 1:11-12(NCV)

11 Brothers and sisters, I want you to know that the Good News I preached to you was not made up by human beings. 12 I did not get it from humans, nor did anyone teach it to me, but Jesus Christ showed it to me.

The word of God was giving to us by God and not by any man.

Galatians 3:5(NCV)

5 Does God give you the Spirit and work miracles among you because you follow the law? No, he does these things because you heard the Good News and believed it.

God gave us his spirit and the works of power because of faith.

Galatians 6:1-6(NCV)

1 Brothers and sisters, if someone in your group does something wrong, you who are spiritual should go to that person and gently help make him right again. But be careful, because you might be tempted to sin, too.2 By helping each other with your troubles, you truly obey the law of Christ.3 If anyone thinks he is important when he really is not, he is only fooling himself.4 Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done.5 Each person must be responsible for himself.

6 Anyone who is learning the teaching of God should share all the good things he has with his teacher.

1-5 is about helping each-other out that are in CHrist, So were we have a strength it maybe another persons weakness and we can keep them strong in that area. Verse 6 is about sharing what God has given us like I’m doing with my blog =)

Galatians 6:9-10(NCV)

9 We must not become tired of doing good. We will receive our harvest of eternal life at the right time if we do not give up.10 When we have the opportunity to help anyone, we should do it. But we should give special attention to those who are in the family of believers.

We need to not become tired of doing what is good.

Romans 3:5-9(NCV)

5 When we do wrong, that shows more clearly that God is right. So can we say that God is wrong to punish us? (I am talking as people might talk.)6 No! If God could not punish us, he could not judge the world.

7 A person might say, “When I lie, it really gives him glory, because my lie shows God’s truth. So why am I judged a sinner?”8 It would be the same to say, “We should do evil so that good will come.” Some people find fault with us and say we teach this, but they are wrong and deserve the punishment they will receive.

9 So are we Jews better than others? No! We have already said that Jews and those who are not Jews are all guilty of sin.

When we do wrong it shows that God is right.

Romans 3:22(NCV)

22 God makes people right with himself through their faith in Jesus Christ. This is true for all who believe in Christ, because all people are the same:

God makes people right thru their faith in him.

Romans 3:31(NCV)

31 So do we destroy the law by following the way of faith? No! Faith causes us to be what the law truly wants.

Faith makes it so we do what God wants and from doing that we end up doing what the law truly wants.

Romans 5:7-8(NCV)

7 Very few people will die to save the life of someone else. Although perhaps for a good person someone might possibly die.8 But God shows his great love for us in this way: Christ died for us while we were still sinners.

Ok talk about conviction with this verse. God really grabbed ahold of me with this. But what you might not get is the second meaning of this verse. Yes we wouldn’t die to save someone from harm. But I think the huge factor that is somewhat hidden in this verse is that, We don’t die to save the life of someone else. We don’t try all we can to save someone and show them Christ. We don’t even come close to death when we are trying to reach out, Heck when we try to reach out we make sure we are comfortable. But we need to get out of that so much that we are willing to lay down our lives to make sure that person is saved.

Romans 8:4-10(NCV)

4 He did this so that we could be the kind of people the law correctly wants us to be. Now we do not live following our sinful selves, but we live following the Spirit.

5 Those who live following their sinful selves think only about things that their sinful selves want. But those who live following the Spirit are thinking about the things the Spirit wants them to do.6 If people’s thinking is controlled by the sinful self, there is death. But if their thinking is controlled by the Spirit, there is life and peace.7 When people’s thinking is controlled by the sinful self, they are against God, because they refuse to obey God’s law and really are not even able to obey God’s law.8 Those people who are ruled by their sinful selves cannot please God.

9 But you are not ruled by your sinful selves. You are ruled by the Spirit, if that Spirit of God really lives in you. But the person who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to Christ.10 Your body will always be dead because of sin. But if Christ is in you, then the Spirit gives you life, because Christ made you right with God.

The spirit gives us life and if we listen and dow what the spirit wants then we will do right.

Romans 8:13(NCV)

13 If you use your lives to do the wrong things your sinful selves want, you will die spiritually. But if you use the Spirit’s help to stop doing the wrong things you do with your body, you will have true life.

If we keep giving into sin we are going to die spiritually.

Romans 8:14(NCV)

14 The true children of God are those who let God’s Spirit lead them.

This verse is pretty straightforward to with what it means here.

Romans 8:17(NCV)

17 If we are God’s children, we will receive blessings from God together with Christ. But we must suffer as Christ suffered so that we will have glory as Christ has glory.

Again it goes with a couple verses back about not suffering. To often a times we as christians won’t do anything or we just give into sin with our friends cause we are being mocked or we are afraid of being mocked. All we are doing when we do that is screwing ourselves up with God. People want to see something honest and true. So if you stick with your guns they may mock you at first. But down deep they will respect you and if not that is for them to deal with with God. They made fun of you for believing in Christ then thats their problem not yours. Live life daily between you and God, Not between you and man.

Romans 8:23-25(NCV)

23 Not only the world, but we also have been waiting with pain inside us. We have the Spirit as the first part of God’s promise. So we are waiting for God to finish making us his own children, which means our bodies will be made free.24 We were saved, and we have this hope. If we see what we are waiting for, that is not really hope. People do not hope for something they already have.25 But we are hoping for something we do not have yet, and we are waiting for it patiently.

I love this part of the verse, “People do not hope for something they already have”. If we are going to keep moving in God we need to always be hoping for something or looking for something. Always looking for God to move and to do something. Always looking For God’s voice in all things.

Romans 8:26-27(NCV)

26 Also, the Spirit helps us with our weakness. We do not know how to pray as we should. But the Spirit himself speaks to God for us, even begs God for us with deep feelings that words cannot explain.27 God can see what is in people’s hearts. And he knows what is in the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit speaks to God for his people in the way God wants.

The Holy Spirit will help us with our weakness’s and help us to communicate with God and the power he has given us.

Romans 8:38-39(NCV)

38 Yes, I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor ruling spirits, nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers,39 nothing above us, nothing below us, nor anything else in the whole world will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Nothing will ever and I mean ever be able to make God quit loving us. Cause God is Perfect love.

Romans 12:2(NCV)

2 Do not be shaped by this world; instead be changed within by a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to decide what God wants for you; you will know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect.

“Do not be shaped by this world; instead be changed within by a new way of thinking”. That is an amazing passage of scripture.

Romans 12:3(NCV)

3 Because God has given me a special gift, I have something to say to everyone among you. Do not think you are better than you are. You must decide what you really are by the amount of faith God has given you.

You must decide what and who you really are by the amount of faith God has given you, Not by what someone else says or what the world says you are.

Romans 12:9-10(NCV)

9 Your love must be real. Hate what is evil, and hold on to what is good.10 Love each other like brothers and sisters. Give each other more honor than you want for yourselves.

How to truly love. I feel God has really given this to me to practice if I am to be a pastor. I need to hate the evil that is in them but hold onto the good. Always look for the good in people cause it is their, then show them that good that they probably don’t realize is there anymore.

Romans 12:12-21(NCV)

12 Be joyful because you have hope. Be patient when trouble comes, and pray at all times.13 Share with God’s people who need help. Bring strangers in need into your homes.

14 Wish good for those who harm you; wish them well and do not curse them.15 Be happy with those who are happy, and be sad with those who are sad.16 Live in peace with each other. Do not be proud, but make friends with those who seem unimportant. Do not think how smart you are.

17 If someone does wrong to you, do not pay him back by doing wrong to him. Try to do what everyone thinks is right.18 Do your best to live in peace with everyone. 19 My friends, do not try to punish others when they wrong you, but wait for God to punish them with his anger. It is written: “I will punish those who do wrong; I will repay them,”[a] says the Lord. 20 But you should do this:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him a drink.
Doing this will be like pouring burning coals on his head.” — Proverbs 25:21–22
21 Do not let evil defeat you, but defeat evil by doing good.

A set of awesome guidelines that we all need to learn and apply to our lives.

Romans 14:12-13(NCV)

12 So each of us will have to answer to God.

13 For that reason we should stop judging each other. We must make up our minds not to do anything that will make another Christian sin.

We must not do anything that will make another brother or sister in christ fall into sin by something we do, post on the internet or say.

Romans 14:16-18(NCV)

16 Do not allow what you think is good to become what others say is evil.17 In the kingdom of God, eating and drinking are not important. The important things are living right with God, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.18 Anyone who serves Christ by living this way is pleasing God and will be accepted by other people.

How to please God and be accepted by other people.

Romans 15:1-2(NCV)

1 We who are strong in faith should help the weak with their weaknesses, and not please only ourselves. 2 Let each of us please our neighbors for their good, to help them be stronger in faith.

We need to help sharpen each-others weaknesses.

Romans 15:4(NCV)

4 Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us. The Scriptures give us patience and encouragement so that we can have hope.

Everything in the bible is written to teach us and to help us grow.

Well That’s what God has given me the last couple days just threw reading his word. So I hope God gives you some stuff through what He has given me. Tell next time
~ Much Love, Jeremy
