Where Truth Leads Us
Tumblr media
by Aiden Wilson Tozer
"Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace" - Romans 8:5-6
The world is full of seekers, true enough, and they gravitate quite naturally toward the church. Seekers after peace of mind are plentiful enough to keep the printing presses busy; seekers after physical health are always with us in sufficient numbers to make our leading faith healers comfortably rich; seekers after success and safety are legion, as our popular religious leaders know too well. But real seekers after truth are almost as rare as albino deer. And here is why: Truth is a glorious but hard master. It makes moral demands upon us. It claims the sovereign right to control us, to strip us, even to slay us as it chooses. Truth will never stoop to be a servant but requires that all men serve it. It never flatters men and never compromises with them. It demands all or nothing and refuses to be used or patronized. It will be all in all or it will withdraw into silence. It was Christ who capitalized truth and revealed that it was not an it at all but a Being with all the attributes of personality. I am the Truth, He said, and followed truth straight to the cross. The truth seeker must follow Him there; and that is the reason few men seek truth.

Live Out Your Testimony of Christ To Others
Tumblr media
How you live your life is a testimony of what you believe about God.  – Henry Blackaby.
A definite fact is that Jesus Christ will come again. No one knows the hour except the Heavenly Father. And when that time comes we must all be ready to give an account of our life testimonies.
Bible Reading
Today’s devotional reading is from the Book of Revelation 20:4. Please, read our recent devotional from the Book of Proverbs 2:8: Pursue Justice And Watch Your Ways
The saints' testimony
Martyrs who died for Christ's sake and the Word of God will reign with Him for a thousand years. Their life testimonies are evident in the scriptures and Christian history. The Apostle John wrote, I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God..., they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 
There are lots of men of God in the Bible that have lived out their testimonies in obedience to God's will and for the sake of Jesus Christ's Gospel. They are reminders for us to continuously live our lives in the Spirit that we, too, can be a testimony of Christ's love to others. 
What is your testimony?
Have you thought about what testimony you will leave when you depart from this earth? I bet all that comes to your mind are the good things you have done for others, or the career achievement you received. But let us go deeper than the superficial things you have done. All our accounts will be laid down and reviewed by the Giver of Life when we face Him on our last day. Are you ready to see Him? Have you accomplish your purpose in accordance with his will or you have lived your life on your terms?
Jesus said to a man with a demon after he had healed him, “Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” (Luke 8:39). Following what Jesus said, we should declare to others, in actions and speech, what God has done for us. Let us have the same conviction as Paul when he wrote,  For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek (Romans 1:16).
Reflection
This is the time for your journaling. Reflect on these questions. Ask the Holy Spirit to test your faith and your walk with Christ.
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? — 2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV.
What is your testimony?
Whose testimony in the Bible has touched your lives?
Is your life a living testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Accept Jesus Now.

Prayer
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
The Lord’s Prayer: Matthew 6:9-13

Message of the Day: Cherish and Cultivate the Graces Which the Spirit Produces
Message of the Day: Cherish and Cultivate the Graces Which the Spirit Produces
“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.” (Romans 8:15, NKJV) Efforts to keep the law cannot produce righteousness, because the sinful nature is so bad it cannot be cured, or even improved. It can only be condemned to destruction, and Christ did this by his death on the cross.…

Imputation of Righteousness
Tumblr media
by Charles Hodge
“Blessed is the man to whom Yahweh shall not impute sin.” - Romans 4:8
The righteousness of Christ is imputed to the believer for his justification. The word impute is familiar and unambiguous. To impute is to ascribe to, to reckon to, to lay to one's charge. When we say we impute a good or bad motive to a man, or that a good or evil action is imputed to him, no one misunderstands our meaning. Philemon had no doubt what Paul meant when he told him to impute to him the debt of Onesimus (Phi. 1:18). We read elsewhere, "Let not the king impute anything to his servant" (1 Sam. 22:15). "Let not my lord impute iniquity to me" (2 Sam. 19:19). "Neither shall it be imputed to him that offers it" (Lev. 7:18). "Blood shall be imputed to that man; he has shed blood" (Lev. 17:4). "Blessed is the man to whom Yahweh imputes not iniquity" (Ps. 32:2). "To whom God imputes righteousness without works" (Rom. 4:6). God is "in Christ not imputing their trespasses to them" (2 Cor. 5:19).
The meaning of these and similar passages of Scripture has never been disputed. Every one understands them. We use the word impute in its simple admitted sense when we say that the righteousness of Christ is imputed to the believer for his justification.
It seems unnecessary to remark that this does not, and cannot, mean that the righteousness of Christ is infused into the believer, or in any way so imparted to him as to change or constitute his moral character. Imputation never changes the inward, subjective state of the person to whom the imputation is made. When sin is imputed to a man he is not made sinful; when the zeal of Phinehas was imputed to him he was not made zealous. When you impute theft to a man you do not make him a thief. When you impute goodness to a man you do not make him good. So when righteousness is imputed to the believer he does not thereby become subjectively righteous. If the righteousness be adequate, and if the imputation be made on adequate grounds and by competent authority, the person to whom the imputation is made has the right to be treated as righteous. And, therefore, in the forensic, although not in the moral or subjective sense, the imputation of the righteousness of Christ does make the sinner righteous. That is, it gives him a right to the full pardon of all his sins and a claim in justice to eternal life.
That this is the simple and universally accepted view of the doctrine as held by all Protestants at the Reformation, and regarded by them as the cornerstone of the Gospel, has already been sufficiently proved by extracts from the Lutheran and Reformed Symbols, and has never been disputed by any candid or competent authority.

“He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.” Deuteronomy 32:4 (NKJV)
Why is life sometimes so unfair? Why are people cruel? Why don't things make sense? Why does God choose to do what He does, when He does? We may never have the answers. We can't understand the plans and ways of God because He's not like us: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.” (Isa 55:8) But we can trust that God is in control and knows what He's doing. He will bring justice, because He is a just God. He will always be upright and righteous, because that is His nature. He is perfect and He doesn't change (James 1:17, Malachi 3:6)
As another translation of Deuteronomy 32:4 says: “He (God) is the Rock. Everything he does is perfect, for all his ways are right. He is the trustworthy God who is never unjust; he is fair and honest.” (FBV) The times when we fall short (which we all do), God will always deal with us according to His nature: fairly, honestly and lovingly. Romans 8:28 says that God is working everything for our good. God honors His promises, because all His ways are right.
Friend, when it doesn't seem fair; when it doesn't make sense; when it seems like nothing is happening; God is busy working quietly in the background. And when the time is right, your perfect, trustworthy God will make sure everything turns out just right for you. He is and always will be the immovable Rock, you can trust in Him. Amen! 🙌
