What’s Your Mindset?

Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.
Colossians 3:2‭-‬4 NASB

Are the world happenings bringing you down? Are you living in fear of what is going on around you? Are you discouraged, disappointed, dismayed?
Could it be your mindset? A mind set on the things above is a mind full of hope.

🌹I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
Galatians 2:20 NASB

Only Jesus Saves

“Son of man, if a country sins against Me by committing unfaithfulness, and I stretch out My hand against it, destroy its supply of bread, send famine against it and cut off from it both man and beast, even though these three men, Noah, Daniel and Job were in its midst, by their own righteousness they could only deliver themselves,” declares the Lord God.
Ezekiel 14:13‭-‬14‭ NASB

though these three men were in its midst, as I live,” declares the Lord God, “they could not deliver either their sons or their daughters. They alone would be delivered, but the country would be desolate.
Ezekiel 14:16‭ NASB

even though these three men were in its midst, as I live,” declares the Lord God, “they could not deliver either their sons or their daughters, but they alone would be delivered.
Ezekiel 14:18‭ NASB

even though Noah, Daniel and Job were in its midst, as I live,” declares the Lord God, “they could not deliver either their son or their daughter. They would deliver only themselves by their righteousness.”
Ezekiel 14:20 NASB

🌹Four times in one chapter the Lord God declares that we can’t deliver, save anyone by our righteousness. Only Jesus can deliver by His righteousness unto salvation.

A Blameless Conscience

having a hope in God, which these men cherish themselves, that there shall certainly be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked. In view of this, I also do my best to maintain always a blameless conscience both before God and before men.
Acts 24:15‭-‬16 NASB

Many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, these to everlasting life, but the others to disgrace and everlasting contempt (abhorrence).
Daniel 12:2 NASB

Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.
John 5:28‭-‬29 NASB

🌹Do you do your best to always maintain a blameless conscience both before God and before men?

Blameless Conscience:  To maintain good and exemplary conduct or motives, impelling one toward right action. Free from blame.

No Other Name But Jesus

He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone. And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”
Acts 4:11‭-‬12 NASB

🌹Who are you entrusting your life and eternity to?

Shake This World Up!

And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.
Acts 4:31 NASB

🌹Pray the Holy Spirit’s guidance over you for opportunities to speak the word of God with boldness. Let’s shake this world up!

Can’t Stay Quiet

But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to give heed to you rather than to God, you be the judge; for we cannot stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.”
Acts 4:19‭-‬20 NASB

🌹Help others experience God by proclaiming the gospel and what Jesus has done and is doing in your life.

Uneducated? Untrained?

Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus.
Acts 4:13‭ NASB

🌹Do people notice that You have been with Jesus? Are you educated by sitting at the feet of Jesus as the Holy Spirit teaches about Him, the Word made flesh?

Your Choice – All or Nothing

Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brethren; to Him you shall give heed to everything He says to you. And it will be that every soul that does not heed that prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.’
Acts 3:22‭-‬23 NASB

This statement is pretty blunt and straight forward, “give heed to EVERYTHING He says to you, if not your soul shall be utterly destroyed”.

🌹We cannot pick and choose what we want to heed, obey, from God’s Word. It is all or nothing.
