You Who Love The Lord - Thoughful Tuesdays



It is the Thoughtful Tuesday today.

There are many people who have been close to God and have given us good thoughts to meditate on.

God's Word gives us many verses we need to pray about.

Today is dedicated to those thoughts, ideas, verses and words that make us think and make us want to be closer to God.

Here are today's thoughts!



 Because we lack a divine Center our need for security has led us into an insane attachment to things.  We really must understand that the lust for affluence in contemporary society is psychotic.  It is psychotic because it has completely lost touch with reality.  We crave things we neither need nor enjoy…We are made to feel ashamed to wear clothes or drive cars until they are worn out.  The mass media have convinced us that to be out of step with fashion is to be out of step with reality.  It is time we awaken to the fact that conformity to a sick society is to be sick.
Richard Foster


But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.
2 Corinthians 2:14
The English Standard Version


Kuinka paljoa enemmän on Kristuksen veri, hänen, joka iankaikkisen Hengen kautta uhrasi itsensä viattomana Jumalalle, puhdistava meidän omantuntomme kuolleista teoista palvelemaan elävää Jumalaa! Ja sentähden hän on uuden liiton välimies, että, koska hänen kuolemansa on tapahtunut lunastukseksi ensimmäisen liiton aikuisista rikkomuksista, ne, jotka ovat kutsutut, saisivat luvatun iankaikkisen perinnön.

Hepr. 9:14-15 KR33/38

  1. What a lovely thoughtful post, it's always great to run across a few verses that make you think what you are doing and try to do whatever it is even better.
