Peter and Acts

Recently, I downloaded a new app on my phone that allows me to download entire books of the KJV Dramatized Audio Bible. This means that can listen to them while at work without having internet. It really is a blessing to have God’s word with me while going about my nightly duties.

To test this new app I decided to download the book of Acts and listen to it. While listening I noticed that many of people’s actions and words are recorded in the book, especially after the ascension of Jesus. He did many great things in the name of Jesus and helped to spread the message as Jesus instructed it.

Another thing I noticed is that Peter was still a flawed human that needed the Holy Ghost. One example is the vision of the sheet descending with the various animals and Peter being instructed to eat. Peter basically was given the final instruction that whatever God made clean was clean.

This just shows how important each of us are to God. His love and grace will always be the only way we can make it to heaven. We are all flawed humans that will never live good enough to make it to heaven on our own. 

What is the point of this? Just because we fail doesn’t mean we give up. We have to be willing rely on God and He will make us good enough to make it to heaven.

Why Me, God?

Sometimes I find myself getting frustrated over minor things and I question: Why me, God? Then I get a simple reply that pops in my mind: could have been worse. I know I am guilty of taking small blessing for granted. So maybe what I should be thinking is to thank God that is isn’t worse.

It is so easy to get caught up in daily living that I take my eyes off the major prize.  Now I know why Jesus told the people not to store treasures up in earth. All these things will be gone. Finishing the race for God, it the eternal reward.

Posting Frequency

I have been debating the frequency of my posts. I think posting should be to a level that readers want. So I figure the best option is to ask my followers what their opinion is. So, would you prefer I post more or less often? I have study material gathered over the last couple of years that I could post daily or more often. Or, would you rather have weekly posts?

Feel free to comment and let me know what you think.

Older and Wiser, Maybe

When we are little, we live in our own world. As we get older we start the process of trying to figure the world out. By the time we get to our teen years we know it all, at least I thought I did. By the time we figure out we are wrong we have hit our mid-twenties. As I glided through my thirties I knew that there was so much I didn’t know, but so much about God that I wanted to learn. Here I am 40 and I am amazed at the times in my life that God blessed and protected me, even from myself.

I wanted to share this because regardless of anyone’s age, the greatest knowledge you will ever gain is heavenly knowledge. The love God has for man is a love that can never be fully understood on this earth. However, this doesn’t mean we should not try.
