Acts 17:22-34   We gather to worship the known God.  The God who made the world and everything in it.  He needs nothing from humans.  He gives life to all and breath to all.   His plan is for us to seek Him and find Him not grope around in the dark.  He is not far from us.

Deuteronomy 30:11-16  God is not to mysterious or to difficult to understand.  We don’t have to go to heaven and have Him brought down (Jesus did that), nor do we have to go looking for Him across the sea.  His word is very near.  In our mouth and in our heart so we are able to do it.

Back to Acts –  It is in Him we live and move and have our very being!    –   When Paul talked about Jesus and His resurrection from the dead – some people made fun of what was being said.   Others said I have to think about it.  But there were some who believed!   It is time to be “All In”!  No more making fun or trying to figure things out – just believe!

James 3:1-18   Let’s us know we can’t be blessing one time and cursing the next.  We can’t pray in love and live in hate.  Nor can we say God is so good and go around murmuring and complaining.  This shows we are double minded, unsure of who we belong to.  We show who we belong to by our speech and actions.  When we are bitter, envious, self-seeking; pride is right there.  It is a false truth.  It may look and sound good at the moment even self protecting but the results are not good!    James tells us this wisdom does not come down from above but it earthly, sensual, even demonic –  OH!

Bitterness is being angry, hurt, resentful.

Envy is when we are discontent, resentful of someone else.

Resentful keeps popping up.  It means we are feeling or expressing bitterness or indignation at having been treated unfairly.   Being treated unfairly happens a lot in this world.  And when it does we become selfish, lacking consideration for others.  Only concerned about our own pleasures or profit.  These emotions corrupt (alters) a person.

The wisdom that comes from God is first of all PURE (undefiled), peace-loving courteous (considerate, gentle).  It is willing to yield to reason, full of compassion and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and free from doubts, free from wavering, and free from insincerity.

The fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.   When Jesus gave the sermon on the mount, He said –  “Blessed are the peace makers, for they shall be called the sons of God”.

The words that we speak reveal who we truly belong to.   Blessings come from Christ!  Curses do not!

Philippians 4:8 tells us to think on things that are true, noble, just, pure lovely, good reports, virtuous thing, things that are worthy of praise.  These are the things that come from above.

Our words, thoughts and actions come from who we belong to.  Paul said in Acts – It is in Him we live and move and have our very  being.  Let’s get all in!  Then our words will be pure and healing, encouraging, strengthening to others and ourselves –   Get all in!  In Him we live and move and have our very being!
