Paul’s Preaching

Welcome back! 

Social media is a fickle thing, but I use it for good and not evil, but out of my five or six friends that I know and follow, I have one person I’ve never met, but follow with regularity. He is an AV man and prefers to speak his mind through the word of God praising the Lord Jesus as he goes. 

At the weekend he had more of his own words than normal. He was particularly passionate about Paul’s preaching of the pure gospel.

“He preached it as he received it.” To encourage us to preach the gospel, as Paul was inspired by the Holy Spirit. To encourage us to preach as it is written as in scripture. To tell it as the pure word that has been given to us by grace and should be received as such. 

To compromise God’s pure word, dilutes the powerful grace the Lord provides to those that believe and want to believe. 

-1Corinthians 1:1-4

:1= MOREOVER, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also he have received, and wherein ye stand;

:2= By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 

:3= For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures: 

:4= And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Galatians 1:10

:10= For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

1Thessalonians 2:4

:4= But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. 

(In other ) Psalms 118:8 

:8= It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. 

Romans 5:6 

:6= For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 

Psalms 51:12 

:12= Resore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. 

Matthew 24:35 (and Jesus speaks) 

:35= Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 

2 Corinthians 9:15

:15= Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift. 

Psalms 27:1
THE LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

As it is written

May the Lord bless our efforts today!

I am a Canadian living and working in the UK. I live in a small village near Windsor, with my husband of 20 years (thanks love!) We have two nearly grown up gals of 16 and 19. (thanks again, love!) Finally, we have two small dogs that make sure we get out into God's pastures, what ever the weather, whether it's nice or not. I am always glad when I'm out, as I can concentrate on prayer. Sometimes the prayer is interrupted with other dogs and their walkers, but I am grateful for the opportunity to get out and clear the head and heart. I have been a saved Christian since 1987 (thanks John) and have seen my husband and children saved since 2011ish. (thanks so much Barry). We have seen the humble beginnings of a Bible believers church. While people may come and go, the ones that have found, tried and made up their own mind what they do; we study the inspired, infallible word of God, praising our Lord Jesus Christ through prayer and fellowship. (thanks again, Barry). In my moments of pleasure, sometimes at unreasonable hours, I read the scripture through notes I have taken from studies. I also, write and illustrate. This is a new adventure for me, I would love to incorporate these things into the blog and share it with you! XxVal Mumma Bear Wellness is a new blog, sharing with you my own experiences through the tangled web that is GP vs Holistic views. This will NOT be a forum for tussles as I explain in the first post, both can work together. I would love to hear about someone's experiences in relation to the post topic! Until then, go and have the best day you can with every blessing!
