I have a second IG account where I focus on what I’m learning from the scriptures. @scripturalleadership This morning I shared my thoughts on Romans 12:1. // #scripture #scriptural #leadership #scripturalleadership #ponder #pray #study #meditate #wordofGod
SELF-CARE — We’re no good to our Heavenly Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, or to our neighbors if we don’t take care of ourselves. This is something I’ve struggled with my entire life, and I still do today. I’m working hard to change my habits and routines to fix my past and overcome addictions. It’s an uphill climb. It’s a daily battle and some days I lose the battle. It’s on the next morning, when my alarm goes off at 5 am, when I’m frustrated and tired, that I mutter to myself, “But you have a temple to build.” (1 Cor. 3:16). This morning I sought out more scriptures to ponder and found Romans 12:1, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” What better way to thank our Father for the miracle of our bodies than to care for them, turn them into temples for the Holy Spirit, and present them to God for service? None. There is no better way. It shows faith. It shows obedience. It shows love. // I don’t care much how I look. How old, or young, or buff ... I do a little; I’m not perfect. But mostly I care how I FEEL. I’m tired of being tired. I want to “run and not be weary, and ... walk and not faint” (D&C 89:20), the way God designed our miraculous bodies to do. // We can show leadership to our children, grandchildren, co-workers, co-servants, and others by radically treating our bodies differently than the world does — as temples built for serving the True and Living God. // #Christ #Christian #temple #mybodyisatemple #livingsacrifice #Bible #newtestament #newcovenant #romans12 #scripture #scriptural #leadership #lds #dandc89 #wordofwisdom #scripturalleadership
GATHERING - Many of the actual events from the Old Testament also have symbolic meaning for our day. In #Deuteronomy30 , #Moses laid before the Israelites the choice between good and evil and foretold the consequence of each. // One eventual result of their disobedience was a scattering which left most of Israel living in strange nations, symbolized in the scriptures by life in #Babylon — in the #World . // Today, we’re scattered all across Babylon. We’re held captive by our addictions, sins, and disobedience. But the promise, has been, is, and always will be, that the when we turn to God, He will turn to us, have compassion on us, set us free, and gather us to Him. // And once we’re gathered, He asks us to help Him gather others by teaching the #GoodNews ... we can lay before others what we’ve learned about choosing good over evil and help them turn their captivity to freedom. // “And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath driven thee, And shalt return unto the Lord thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; That then the Lord thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath scattered thee. If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the Lord thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee... And the Lord thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.” (Deut. 30:1-6) // #Bible #Christ #Christian #OldTestament #Moses #Deuteronomy #symbolism #gathering #gather #Babylon #Zion #scriptural #scripturalleadership
There was a slight humiliating sequence and narration of events that we learned about. How the Baptists were founded by a John Smith, who baptized himself, wrestled with this, and desired to be baptized again due to validity. His struggle dealt with church polity and tradition, Scripture fidelity and appropriate practice. But, it made the root of our Baptist heritage illegitimate. It made it sub-par and quite heretical, knowing a man dunked himself into a pool of water by himself, claiming that as a Scriptural baptism by faith: embarking on being twice baptized. But then relenting over the second baptism, claiming the first as valid. It was an oddity. Good thing I was getting out of it. And to think no one understood the mystery of the Eucharist, as Baptists had come out of Anabaptists, who themselves arrived out of The Church of England, who became by the hand of King Henry VIII, who Himself was formerly Catholic. {Post: Plight} _______________________________________________________ “Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name” (1 Corinthians 1:15) __________ #baptists #johnsmith #baptized #validity #churchpolity #tradition #scripture #fidelity #practice #baptist #heretical #heritage #dunked #pool #water #scriptural #secondbaptism #valid #mystery #eucharist #anabaptists #churchofengland #kinghenryviii #catholic #EUTEOTW #EvenUntoTheEndOfTheWorld #MatthewPope28 #Mat281920
What is the #Scriptural basis for the "#AltarCall ?" I really want to know...
Hope you had a BOMB Valentines Day. You are loved.
"The fullest expression of Christian living is a combination of head, heart, and hands. It involves receiving truth through the head, which ignites new affections in the heart and flows out in action through the hands." - Thabiti Anyabwile . .

I am blessed to have many friends who are recent converts. My goodness, I love these people so much! I remember multiple conversations in which they revealed that they had been challenged by non-Catholic family members and friends about the validity of Lent and the reception of Ashes since it wasn’t in the Bible. Today’s post was written out of love for my convert friends, or anyone else who has been challenged by a non-Catholic in the same way. I give a thorough overview of where Lent—and ashes— can be found in Scripture. -link in the profile- . . . . . #lent #ashwednesday #ashtags #scriptural #defendthefaith #bissisterhood #findingphilothea #totheheights #graceswap

Faith over fear everyday because the cross was more than enough for my sin, the Spirit living inside of me is more than enough for my life, and heaven is more than enough for an eternal promise.
@daystarng ...we explored the virtues of the eagle parallel to leadership; how it perceives the storm beforetime (Vision) and with courage, take solace in the storm to soar. P.S- Dont build a monument on your challenges, ride upon them with tenacity and you will find yourself winning over them. Great week ahead💃 #Vision #courage #Tenacity #Leadership #Scriptural
A #Quranic text about human’s responsibility to care for the environment is read at the West Central Liberal Synagogue on #TuBishvat , a sort of Jewish #ecological awareness day. An Imaan and a Catholic speaker were invited to present texts from their literature at the #interfaith event hosted by Marylebone #Scriptural Reasoning. The group in Central London seeks to create opportunities to promote better relationships between Muslims, Christians and Jews on the basis of shared religious scriptural heritage.
For years I have devotedly prayed the Rosary- however I go through periods where I struggle to focus while praying and eventually I stop picking up my beads and I go days, weeks or even months without praying the Rosary. Every time I try to start, "something" gets in my way, I say I'm too tired, too busy, etc. Excuses, excuses. . It's been awhile since the last time I prayed the Rosary and I came across a book ("Praying the Rosary Like Never Before: Encounter The Wonder of Heaven and Earth" by Edward Sri) last month. I bought it, but it took me awhile to pick it up and start reading. After the first chapter, I put it down, fully intending to get right back into it the next day. But again, those same excuses; too tired, too busy, blah, blah. . Well, I finally started it again and what do I read? "Who is it that wants us to be discouraged about our Rosary praying? Who is it that wants us to think we're not good at praying this prayer, that it's a waste of time, that it's pointless since we are so bad at it, that there are many other things we should be doing? The enemy, the devil wants us to think that. He hates this prayer. And he will do everything he can to keep us from praying it, using even our humble and honest recognition that we're not reciting it as well as we should." 😡 Diablo. I should have known 😵. . So, I will pick up my Rosary tonight, late though it is, and remember that "the power of Satan is, nonetheless, not infinite. He is only a creature...he cannot prevent the building up of God's reign." (CCC 395). #God #allpowerful #allmighty #rosary #powerfulweapon #devotion #meditation #prayer #scriptural #Catholic #Christian
The impact of the word is determined by the faith of the receiver.
He loves us with an everlasting love. It is in His love that changes us but not because of merit. How wonderful is our God 💙💙💙 #MotivationMondays #Scriptural #Truth #Godslove #SaruOrganics

Doesn't matter what you think. Doesn't matter what you feel. Doesn't matter what you see. Only one thing matters - #theword #hisword God is not a man that He should lie. He said He won't break His covenant. You can trust Him. His truth is higher than fact. He said also His Word will not return empty and that it will prosper in what it was sent to do. How does His Word get back to Him?

This. Very few things bother me more than "believers" saying "sometimes God does and sometimes He doesn't" or more specifically in this case, praying "if it be Your will." Stop acting like you're giving God a way out because you're ignorant of His Word and His will or that you just don't have the faith to see His will through. #hosea4six #ephesians6twelve #knowthetruth #truth #gospel #theword #godsword #scripture #scriptural #jesus #amen #educateyourself #keepitreal #Repost @realtalkkim with @repostapp ・・・ Spend some time studying and reading your Bible!

Regular meeting pertama di awal tahun 2018 ini kami buka dengan scriptural reasoning (penciptaan). Suasana semakin hangat karena adanya bara api (dari bakar sosis), gurihnya masakan, manisnya jasuke, cerianya anak2, dan canda tawa senantiasa mengiringi sepanjang hari minggu ini di rumah keluarga kang Iwan. Semoga sepanjang 2018 kebahagiaan & berkah selalu Allah limpahkan kepada keluarga YIPC Bandung dan seluruh peacemaker di manapun berada. #peace #harmony #youth #interfaith #interreligious #family #togetherness #happiness #kids #muslim #christian #beginning #scriptural #peacemaker #community #love #grateful #bandungjuara
Grateful for these truths. #scriptural guidance!
Holy Bible: Featured on @evenuntotheendoftheworld _______________________________________________________ “In gilded excellence and splendor on high is The Word of Christ held.
