Pursue Him -- Notable Quotable

This is a beautiful reminder to examine ourselves regularly so that we make sure that our priorities are always in the right order.

For instance, in yesterday's politically themed posts I pointed out how it should be as follows: God. Family. Country.

Here's an excellent quote from a man of God that further illustrates sinful human nature while simultaneously reminding the elect that we need to constantly make sure we're PURSUING HIM and nothing else.

Our break with the world will be the direct outcome of our changed relation to God. For the world of fallen men does not honor God. Millions call themselves by His name, it is true, and pay some token respect to Him; but a simple test will show how little He is really honored among them. Let the average man be put to the proof on the question of who is above, and his true position will be exposed. Let him be forced into making a choice between God and money, between God and men, between God and personal ambition, God and self, God and human love…God will take second place every time. Those other things will be exalted above. However a man may protest, the proof is in the choices he makes day after day throughout his life.

-- A.W. Tozer (1897–1963)


Is the Lord first in your life? Have you "picked" Him over all the other trappings of the world like money, people, power, work, sex, success and everything else Satan has to offer?

The proof is in the choices you make day after day throughout your life. We need to stop living for ourselves and start living for Him. It's the least we can do.

He already chose us to be His sole property bought with His own shed blood. Are we now living a life that honors Him by choosing His principles for an obedient and righteous life?

I have a question. Remember before O was president that Creme guy said the Maitreya was coming after xmas and that his sign would be in the sky. Well O took office..after xmas, had the norway spiral in the sky. How come nobody follows up anymore? There are also claims that O is the guy and some tracking of him being out of the country during the times that M has made appearences...then they suddenly stopped...when he ran for senate....

I just wanted to know if anyone else heard this stuff because it sounds so crazy

President Obama is not THE antichrist, though he does share some characteristics. The high level of charisma at the start, proclaiming peace, unity, and prosperity while only bringing stress, division, and ruin. Satan may be trying a new tactic, or perhaps God wants us to concentrate on other things. LET'S PRAY FOR HIM AND THIS COUNTRY. The war may be almost over, but we still need to keep trusting God and do his work. Word for this post is turec. TUROC, TOUAREG, CREATURE

Thought this was very good, Jeff.

peace,
