EYES ON JESUS
EYES ON JESUS
1Our world is exploding with violence, and many people who once claimed to follow Jesus are losing heart. They are in danger of drifting away and dropping out.
2Angels should never be worshipped. But we know there was a dangerous practice in the early church concerning the worship of angels.
3The subject of angels is one of the most misunderstood doctrines in the Bible
4If you aren’t constantly aware of sin in your life, then you probably have drifted away from the convicting presence of the Holy Spirit.
5Part of what heaven will be like for us will be a restoration of authority over God’s creation of a new heaven and a new earth.
6The true Holy Family is the Church–the Family of God.
7The next time the devil tries to remind you of your past, remind him of his future!
8There are several similarities between the life of Moses and the life of Jesus
9God is constantly bringing us to those points of crisis and the choice is this: Am I going to go on? Or am I going to go back? Turning back is the result of having a hardened heart.
10If you are suffering from a hardened heart, it’s a sure sign you’re in the spiritual wilderness when it comes to God’s plan for your life.
11You are not saved by performing good deeds. You can only rest in the finished work of Jesus on the cross!
12Mirrors don’t lie, and neither does God’s Word. That’s the exact reason some people are reluctant to really look into God’s Word. It reveals who we really are.
13We’re all equal at the foot of the cross.
14Jesus is there for you and He cares for you.
15The idea of arrested spiritual development was a tragedy when the book of Hebrews was written and it is a widespread problem in our churches today.
16The main way you can know if you are moving on to maturity is if you are becoming more and more like Jesus.
17Salvation is a race, but we aren’t competing against each other. We are all moving toward the finish line, which is when we will meet Jesus. We will either meet Jesus in death or when He returns, but He is our finish line.
18The Christian life is like a race. But at the beginning of the race, the Lord says, Get Ready; Get Set, GROW!
19You don’t have to understand all the promises of God; you just need to trust God to deliver them to you! Trusting the word of other people is often like trying to walk across a bridge of Kleenex. But the promises of God are rock solid.
20 Jesus isn’t the anchor. Hope is the anchor. But the anchor is only as effective as the rock it grabs onto.
21Jesus truly had no beginning and no end.
22The Old Testament Law was like an old bridge. It was congested with rules, there was a high toll charge, and it never brought people into fellowship with God.
23The Tabernacle had a much deeper meaning than just a sanctuary where God could meet his people. It was a wonderful illustration of many points of reality.
24When you undergo a new birth that you read about in the New Testament, God changes you into a new creation. That means we receive a new identity.
25Conscience is an alarm that God places in every person’s soul to sound when they are about to do something wrong.
26Outward cleanliness is important, but we all have a stain of sin no soap can remove.
27Jesus was the fulfillment of the scarlet thread.
28Humanity is like a man who has fallen down into a well. The Ten Commandments was a set of rules to tell us to keep out of wells after we had already fallen in! But the problem for most people is they don’t know they have fallen in a well and need help.
29When Christians replace the grace of God with activities or rituals we think will make God love us more or think there are things we can do that might make God love us less is legalism. There is NOTHING we can do to make God love us any less or any more.
30Even though we have been forgiven, we should hate the presence of any sin in our lives.
31No matter what happens in this world, God is still enthroned in heaven.
32We live in an age where you hear the word hell a lot. People regularly tell people to go to hell. But nobody seems to be afraid of spending eternity there.
33There are promises God has for you, but you may not be mature enough to receive them. That’s why we keep growing.
34Faith is not believing facts about God or believing that God exists. Saving faith is knowing God—that’s the Reward of faith.
35An examination of the faith of Abel and Enoch.
36To be righteous doesn’t mean you are perfect. Sometimes even God’s heroes experience failure in their lives.
37The problem is that we are in such a hurry, and God isn’t.
38We don’t really fit in to this world because we’re homesick for heaven.
39God may not ignite the fire of affliction, but He controls the thermostat!
40We’re all faced with the choice to live by faith or to fall into sin.
41There’s a huge difference between living by faith and living in sin.
42For all of us who are not perfect, God can still use us. In fact, the Bible teaches us that God prefers to use those whom the world considers to be losers.
43Faith is a wonderful luxury when you are facing good times. But faith is an absolute necessity when you feel like you are in the bottom of God’s mixing bowl.
44We all start the race of life when we’re born. The only trouble is, we’re running in the wrong direction
45It’s not up to you to write your own story. God already has one written for you; all you need to do is discover it.
46There is a world of difference between God punishing sin and God disciplining His children.
47Esau is an example of how bitterness can ruin your life.
48God’s fire will destroy what it cannot purify; but it will purify what it cannot destroy.
49If you show kindness to strangers, you might be showing hospitality to an angel without knowing it.
50You determine your self-worth based on your relationship with God. And God said He loves you so much that He has your name engraved in the palms of His hands. And God loves you whether you’re rich or poor.
51We live in a culture that seems to be allergic to consistency.
52We often use the terms, “Praise and Worship” together. But they aren’t the same thing.
