“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” So the Pharisees said to him, “You are bearing witness about yourself; your testimony is not true.” Jesus answered, “Even if I do bear witness about myself, my testimony is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going,… You judge according to the flesh;… In your Law it is written that the testimony of two people is true. I am the one who bears witness about myself, and the Father who sent me bears witness about me.” (John 8: 12-18) Has the Lord confirmed a call on your life? Then move by…FAITH!
“And Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown and among his relatives and in his own household.”’ (Mark 6:4) Though the World, and at times Christian’s, WILL oppose you…STAND FIRM!
“When they came, he looked on Eliab and thought, “Surely the LORD’S anointed is before him.” But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.”’ (1 Samuel 16: 6-7). Do NOT gauge your call by your own flesh, or strength,…FOR IT IS CHRIST IN YOU!
“You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God” (Luke 16:15) Do not boast in what men boast in. Do not boast as the World does. For man does not see as God sees: But…BOAST IN THE LORD!
