Food for Thought

Literally one of the last things we did in the States before returning to Thailand was attend a preacher’s conference. What a delightful time of fellowship, good preaching, and for a dose of reality, restless kids. 😉 Sixteen messages spread over 2.5 days gave much “food for thought” and I thought I would share some of the highlights and trust God this is a blessing to you as you read.

  • We are called to be salt and light. Don’t be rude or unkind, but do be truthful.
  • Inner man stuff: the inner man must be strengthened! The Word of God alone can do that.
  • A tool must be ready to be used effectively.
  • Just keep going on. Scoffers will always be there.
  • Church is for the perfecting of the saints.
  • Scoffers are controlled by their lusts, not the Holy Spirit. But remember, scoffers are still souls.
  • Just go forward!
  • Determine to know nothing, but Jesus Christ. 
  • Opinions of man are not perfect, but God’s Word is.
  • Saved people should live a saved life.
  • When I choose to sin, I forget the sacrifice of Jesus.
  • He is present, so is He presiding?
  • Remember God is the One who is in control of everything.
  • If the inner man is right, the outer man will show it.
  • What am I teaching by example?
  • Sometimes, God leads us to places we would rather not go, but it is always necessary.
  • God knows just how much to stretch His saint.
  • At “Marah” places, I will either be bitter or better.
  • Some things I just don’t need to pray about; I just need to obey.
  • “For ever” needs to come down to “daily,” which is really “moment by moment.”
  • It’s easy to get distracted. Stay on course. Don’t swerve. But if you do, get back on the path.
  • A sick body is a vulnerable body.
  • Examination of self will never end with a pat on the back, but instead with a “woe is me.”
  • Courage! Be willing to stand alone.
  • Commit to speak God’s Word in every situation.
  • Be compelled by an audience of One.
