Though it may be a very small picture demanding zooming in, its like the things in life which seem so unnoticeable but are there. Often man thinks him to be superior to all those things around him. He even thinks he can create some things better. But those matters where there is The Hand of the Supreme Being Maker of all things, man is just nothing, small like the a grain of sand.
Lots of people in that multitude of human beings feel like a nothing or like dust. They forget that they too are created in the image of the Most High Being, Creator of all things, the One Who let be. Nothing can exist without Him.
This Grand Maker wants us all to shine brightly as the stars he placed on the outskirts of the earth, twinkling in the heavens. We all should and are twinkling here on earth and may be noticed by a fellow traveller.
Each human being, allowed to be here, should not be afraid of his or her fellow man, because they all should more fear That One Who creates and lets be. He is it Who is eternal and can give us eternity for life or for death. He is it Who wants us to shine and wants us to come to Him as His little children eager to learn from Him.
Going up to Him we should be pleased to find others, who are willing to get out of the darkness with us. Together we can do more than on our own. God does not want us to walk on our own. He also has given the world His only begotten son to guide us and to show us the Way to God His Kingdom, where all should come together to live in peace and tranquillity, shining unto glory of Christ Jesus,the son of God , and to the One Who is greater than Jesus, The Only One God, the Adonai, Elohim Hashem Jehovah, Giver of life.
Jesus has liberated the world of its chains to death. We all should be happy and make use of that what Jesus has done for us all. In him we should unite and put on his armour, like him not doing our own will but the Will of God and making His Name to be known all over the world, so that the light can be broken and the Glory of God can shine all over the universe.

- Psalm 77 (embodiedtorah.wordpress.com)
We commonly speak about God with human characteristics and emotions. We talk about God’s fingers, hands, arms, eyes, ears, and even nose, even though God has none of the above. We also commonly speak of God’s happiness, enjoyment, desire for obedience, sadness, regret, and compassion and other such human emotions. The 12th century philosopher Maimonides believed that we should not use such language for God, because to do so places limits on a God who is by definition infinite. However, Biblical literature is rich with anthropomorphic and anthropopathic language for God because it is the only way we have to to communicate our our sense of the Divine.
- Making Tough Decisions (curlychristians.com)
It’s important to make the right choices, especially in the middle of hurt, discouragement, frustration and confusion when the right choice is the tough choice to make. When things are stressful, we naturally like to take the path of least resistance. But those are the very moments when you need to make the tougher choice. Because to reap right results in life, you have to do right when you don’t feel like it.

- It’s a Christian “Walk,” Not a Sprint (daviddflowers.com)
The point of being a Christian is to become like Christ, the perfect human being.If you’ve been a follower of Jesus for any length of time you know that this process isn’t easy, and it takes much longer than any of us like. We don’t call it the Christian “walk” for nothing.
So the Christian journey is a lifetime of inching closer to Jesus. Disciples know that this can be frustrating.
- “What is lost by Letting Go of the “Happenedness” of the Gospel?” (dougskinner.wordpress.com)
We are not beings of pure spirit who exist by entertaining big thoughts and inhabiting the realm of noble ideals. We are people of flesh and blood who need to eat and sleep, who feel pleasure and pain, who get hungry, cold and sick.
virtually everything Jesus Christ ever said as reported in the Gospels had been taught by the Hebrew prophets and sages long before Him. As Paul put it, the Law is “holy, righteous and good” (Romans 7:12). In other words, long before Jesus came we already had a more than adequate expression of what it was that God expected of us as human beings morally and spiritually. The Law has been written on both tablets of stone and on the contours of our hearts. If all it takes for us to get “right” and then to stay “right” with God is information, then by Exodus 20 we should have been set. We got all the content we ever needed on Sinai. But my core issue is not intellectual. Salvation is not a sudden flash of insight, or the discovery of some cosmic truth that organizes my thinking and forever clarifies my understanding. I’ve got bigger problems than that, much bigger.
- We Have Hope (heartfixxer.wordpress.com)
Before Jesus Christ there was only death. His resurrection broke the chains of death, and for the first time, infused hope into the world. Sure, everyone has a fear of the unknown. If we compare it to how God loves us, we can be sure heaven is an amazing place to call home. God tells us his thoughts and ways are far beyond our understanding. Like his love, it is far greater than we can comprehend.

- A Conversation About The Nature of God (thehardincrowder.wordpress.com)
Yesterday I had a great conversation with someone about God that I thought was worth writing about briefly. This person was an ex-atheist who had (I assume) recently become a theist. He was on board with the idea of mono-theism, and believed there was a God out there, but he had some problems with the God I worshiped.We talked about morality, the nature of faith, the resurrection of Christ, the ultimate purpose of man, and the problem of evil. It was a great conversation, and we both managed to keep the dialogue respectful. It’s one of the few debates I’ve found myself in where I didn’t feel personally attacked or insulted at the end of it. I wish more debates ended that way.
- No religion (catchjohnfischer.wordpress.com)
The gospel is such a basic, simple thing. God created human beings in His image. Human beings sinned by disobeying God. God said if you sin you will die, which has proven to be true for every human being who ever lived, including us. But God provided a way out by becoming a human being Himself and dying in our place so that the punishment of sin for the whole human race He created can be met in Christ, and those who place their faith in Him, “though they die, yet shall they live.” That’s it. No more; no less. Anything more than this is religion, and God doesn’t accept it. He is not impressed by our religious activity, whatever it is; He is impressed only by His Son in us, and that comes by faith, not religion.
- Reclaiming Piety (pietistschoolman.com)
For some, piety connotes an intensely private kind of religiosity that detaches the Christian from concern for this world, leaving them “too heavenly minded to be earthly good.”But probably for more, piety connotes an intensely public kind of religiosity that is likely legalistic, hypocritical, and/or exceedingly emotional. To practice piety, in this view, is to do exactly what Jesus warned against in the Sermon on the Mount: “…whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, so that they may be seen by others” (Mt 6:5, NRSV). To be pious in this way is to be pharisaical, to be “like whitewashed tombs, which on the outside look beautiful, but inside they are full of the bones of the dead and of all kinds of filth” (Mt 23:27).
