Preachers of LA - "I'm Still a Virgin"

Y'all pray for me.
Ok, so I watched Preachers of LA and was shocked at the comments made to the Pastor who says he’s celibate. Why were the “saints” so surprise he's a virgin? The Bible clearly states the standards for men and women to live by; singles are not to have sex until marriage.
Their behavior, (Detrick, Dominique, and Myesha) was shocking. This is the problem the church is having, instead of us commending and celebrating those who are living a pure life, we are like the world, we talk about them, put them down and say, things like “Well good for them, because man, I could never do it.” OK, so maybe you couldn't which is the reason you are in the situation you are in now.
How about lifting up those and praising those who are trying to live according to the Scriptures. The reactions from pastors and their wives and the treatment of Pastor Alden was shocking, they treated him as though something was wrong with him. 

And may I add “butt or breasts” showed Myesha’s immaturity and to me it was vulgar to ask a Pastor that kind of question. How immature! Shows lack of spiritual growth and it was tacky! I try to watch Preachers of LA, but I am finding out this is not something I need to support.

But Jesus Didn't Trust Them!

Good Morning, our church is in a 21 day Bible Reading Challenge in the book of John. One of the Scriptures that always fascinates me is John 2:24-25, so I though I would share my thoughts. Feel free to share yours.

“But Jesus would not entrust Himself to them, for he knew all people. He did not need any testimony about mankind, for He knew what was in each person.” John 2:24-25 NIV
Jesus Christ knows us, He know are thoughts, our nature and our character.

He knows how crafty man can be, he knows every secret, every evil scheme; He knows who the hypocrites are and He knows our true character. He knows who is for him and who is not. He knows our integrity and our love for Him, and He also knows our strengths and weaknesses. He knows when we say yes, we really mean no; Christ knows what’s in us, because He knows every man’s heart.
Jesus did not trust Himself around people, who believed in Him, only for His miracles; He did not take them in as companions; He did not take them into fellowship with Himself; He did not freely talk with them, or spend much time with them. After He was finished, He left them, and went into other parts of Judea, and into Galilee.
Isn't it amazing that Jesus Himself did not trust or entrust Himself to those who believed only because they saw the miracles. How quickly we are to commit ourselves to others because God used us mightily in one service.
Take a lesson from Jesus: He knew one day they would try to destroy Him and His true followers; He knew that one day the same people that were cheering Him on, would one day cry CRUCIFY HIM! The accolades are fun now, but remember what Jesus did “Jesus would not entrust Himself to them, for he knew all people.” And, “He did not need any testimony about mankind, for He knew what was in each person” (John 2:24-25 NIV).
We must be confident in whom we belong to, and who we are. We are children of the most High God. Be confident in the fact that Jesus knows you, He know if you have made Him Lord and Savior of your life. He said “My sheep hear My voice” . (John 10:27)
He knows His saints and He knows who the hypocrites are (Matthew 23:24-29). Follow His lead.
Just my thought on this Tuesday

Have a wonderful Wednesday! 7/30/14

Have a wonderful Wednesday! God is opening doors and making ways. I know it sounds like a cliche, but the Scripture says in, Revelation 3:8 "I see what you've done. Now see what I've done. I've opened a door before you that no one can slam shut. You don’t have much strength, I know that; you used what you had to keep my Word. You didn't deny me when times were rough" (MSG Bible).
Hold on God is still the same, and when opportunities come because of your prayers, don't deny them, use what you have, keep His Word, and walk through the open door.
