We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.

 

Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.

 

  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )

 

# 117 Proof Proves Unbelief

By Arla, Oct 9 2019 01:00AM

Jesus clearly claims to be their Messiah, and then he adds, "You have seen Me, but don't believe."


They had seen him through the evidence of how he treated them, the Spirit's power accompanying his words and acts. If they refuse to believe this, further demonstration would be pointless. Unbelief can reason away proof, and always find excuses for doubt.


Again he attempts to reach their hearts, saying, "Everyone the Father draws, will come to me, and no one will be refused. It is the Father's will for all to see the Father's love in the Son, be resurrected on the last day, and live forever."


Jesus says, if you come, you can't be lost. None come unless drawn by the Father's love, but God's Spirit is drawing everyone--from every nation on earth, every religious persuasion! Only those who resist His love will not be drawn to Him.


The leaders are offended, and try to prejudice the people against him by speaking of his commonness. They know this lowly Galilean carpenter, of poor (and doubtful) parentage. He is not worthy of their time and consideration.


Jesus doesn't try to explain his birth or how he'd come from heaven. He has purposely become a servant, so that his words and actions will show his character, and that will be the only attraction. Those open to God will recognize him.*


God will conquer evil, sin and death. But "Conquering Hero" is not how He wants to be known. He wants to be known as our true Love first.


John 6:36-51 *John 1:14
