Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Good Morning! For those of you joining me, we’re on day 4!

While all the scripture references listed each day are helpful and purposeful throughout this study, I am choosing to focus on just one, using the 3, 2, 1 Method of study.

My heart skips a beat, anytime C. S. Lewis is mentioned…Kaitlin used this quote in DAY 2

Loving others as ourselves “is an image, a foretaste of what we must become to all if Love Himself rules in us without a rival.” -C.S. Lewis

A great teacher and righteous man of God, Larry Reese, posted this yesterday:

“Friends, I want to share something with us from the Scriptures that has been on my heart today. In a way, it is a warning to be careful to watch out for the things that pull us away from Father and cause us to think inconsistently with what Jesus tells us. We should know with all of our hearts that if we walk with Jesus the way that we should and listen to His words and read the Scriptures, eating them, allowing them to fill us up with the knowledge of God, then Satan will have a lot of trouble pulling us away from Jesus. It is not just enough to try and have a relationship with the Bible, but it is spiritually profound to have intimacy with the Author–knowing, receiving, and welcoming Him so that He may give us continual power to experience being His children. Know for certain, dear friends, that there is a strong presence of deception that is trying to pull us away from following after Jesus with our whole hearts, telling us it is alright to do the things that Father instructs us in His word, not to do. Be aware:”

“…..Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.” 1 Timothy 4:1 (NLT)

“….Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 (NLT)

“….And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32 (NLT)

Let us hold firmly the word of God in our hearts, so that we may not sin against Him.

THANK YOU BROTHER LARRY! These amazing truths are just what I needed to hear. To produce fruit, we must EAT “FRUIT” ‘allowing it to fill us up’.  Abiding in Him allows us the opportunity to “experience being His children!”  We must sit on His lap daily, if we are to “KNOW” Him…to LOVE HIm…

& We cannot love apart from Christ.
