“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given.”         Isaiah 9:6

 

After yesterday’s “providential” opening of the Bible to the “snow verse,” I just kept looking at other things Isaiah had to say and I came upon an equally famous “Christmas verse” this morning! I was captured by the four prophetic names He gave Jesus:

“Wonderful Counselor”- He will guide me, if I wish,

“Mighty God”- He will be my strength, if I let Him,

“’Come now let us reason together,’ says the Lord. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.’”                Isaiah 1:18

“Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.”           Romans 12:11

 

And how, pray tell, do I do that? I think I might have said this before, maybe a hundred times or more! “If it’s important to God, it’s clear in His word!” This must be important to God because I found at least 15 specific things listed around this verse that help me understand how to keep my zeal and spiritual fervor for the Lord:

“Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.”              Romans 12:9

Just use them to God’s glory, give Him the credit for anything good that comes from them and keep on.

“I urge you, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—THIS is your spiritual act of worship.”                Romans 12:1

“Give thanks in all circumstances … for this is the will of God concerning you.”     1 Thessalonians 5:18

It's November 21; Good Morning Union

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him.”         Colossians 2:6

And, how do I do that? If it’s important to God, it’s clear in His word! It must be important because here’s what Paul says:

“The Lord your God is with you…” Zephaniah 3:17
 
Not the most read book in the Bible but wow, what a verse of promise and hope; and what a picture of God! “The Lord your God is with you, He is might to save.” It’s about the “promise” of His perpetual presence, and the “hope” in His ability to offer me eternal life. And then brother Zeph painted three pictures of God for me this morning:
