WORKMAN's FAITH

 

Ephesians 6:10

King James Version

10 Finally, 

my brethren, 

be strong in the Lord, 

and in the power of his might.


It's been quite a journey.

A life-long journey.

Searching for truth.

Ultimate truth.

Which turned out to be GOD's TRUTH.

And when I did find it, peace prevailed.

BECOMING a workman for God, nearly 27 months now.

2 Timothy 2:15

King James Version

15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, 

a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, 

rightly dividing the word of truth.


SHARING the WORD of GOD each day, with you.

Hebrews 4:12

King James Version

12 For the word of God is quick, 

and powerful, 

and sharper than any twoedged sword, 

piercing even to the dividing asunder 

of soul and spirit, 

and of the joints and marrow, 

and is a discerner of the thoughts 

and intents of the heart.


DELIGHTING in the simplicity of the GOSPEL.

1 Corinthians 15:3-4

King James Version

3 For I delivered unto you first of all 

that which I also received, 

how that Christ died for our sins 

according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, 

and that he rose again the third day 

according to the scriptures:


TRUSTING in God completely.

deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, 

and from them that persecute me.


KNOWING I am safe, with GOD.

King James Version

6 The Lord is on my side; 

I will not fear

what can man do unto me?


TRUSTING in His promise.

John 3:16

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him 

should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.


BECOMING child-like with JESUS.

Matthew 18:3

Verily I say unto you, 

Except ye be converted, 

and become as little children, 

ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.


HAVING faith in Him alone.

31 What shall we then say to these things? 

If God be for us, 

who can be against us?


FOCUSING on Him, above all.

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.


BEING conformed to GOD's WILL alone.

Romans 12:2

King James Version

2 And be not conformed to this world: 

but be ye transformed 

by the renewing of your mind, 

that ye may prove what is that good, 

and acceptable, 

and perfect, 

will of God.


WALKING with Spirit, each moment.

Galatians 5:16

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil 

the lust of the flesh.


WAITING to be taught, each day.

John 16:13

King James Version

13 Howbeit when he, 

the Spirit of truth, 

is come, 

he will guide you into all truth: 

for he shall not speak of himself; 

but whatsoever he shall hear, 

that shall he speak: 

and he will shew you things to come.


LIVING by FAITH alone.

Ephesians 2:8

King James Version

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; 

and that not of yourselves: 

it is the gift of God:


BEING born again.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, 

I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


BELIEVING in JESUS, the SON of GOD.

John 14:1

King James Version

14 Let not your heart be troubled: 

ye believe in God, 

believe also in me.


KNOWING all come from Him.

John 15:5

King James Version

5 I am the vine, 

ye are the branches: 

He that abideth in me, 

and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing.


ALERTING me to something really urgent.

Matthew 24:39-42

King James Version

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: 

for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.


REVEALING the time is at hand.

Mark 1:15

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.


WAITING for His soon return.

Hebrews 9:28

King James Version

28 So Christ was once offered 

to bear the sins of many; 

and unto them that look for him 

shall he appear the second time 

without sin unto salvation.


KNOWING only God knows when.

Matthew 24:36

King James Version

36 But of that day and hour 

knoweth no man, 

no, 

not the angels of heaven, 

but my Father only.


LOOKING forward to being with JESUS.

Revelation 21:1-5

King James Version

21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: 

for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; 

and there was no more sea.

2 And I John saw the holy city, 

new Jerusalem, 

coming down from God out of heaven, 

prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, 

Behold, 

the tabernacle of God is with men, 

and he will dwell with them, 

and they shall be his people, 

and God himself shall be with them, 

and be their God.

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; 

and there shall be no more death, 

neither sorrow, 

nor crying, 

neither shall there be any more pain: 

for the former things are passed away.

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, 

Behold, 

I make all things new

And he said unto me, 

Write: 

for these words are true 

and faithful.


A workman's work, is truly wonderful.

And so very worthwhile.

All for the GLORY of GOD.
