Proverbs 14:25

 25 A true witness delivers souls,
      But a deceitful witness speaks lies.
It would seem an obvious statement wouldn’t it? But so many seem so caught up in their own world even to the point of deceiving themselves. But there is hope to be found in verses 26 and 27.

  26 In the fear of the LORD there is strong confidence,
      And His children will have a place of refuge.
       27 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life,
      To turn one away from the snares of death.
Notice who the promise is for. And how does one become a child of God? Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ that He died for your sins by shedding His blood on the cross and rose alive from the dead. Then, follow Him! The second action is missing, but critical from so many calls to repentance. We must follow Jesus and be transformed into His character and nature so that we can share His good news of Salvation with others. Consider What Jesus said in Luke 6:42-49

46 “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? 47 Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. 49 But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”

May God Bless you and lead you in your desire to follow Him.

    Further expanding on the idea that parts of the Gospel are missing when it is preached by some is that, it occurred to me, the Holy Spirit is also missing. It leaves the message that is preached lifeless in the end because there was no pointing to Christ to go on from the point of Salvation. There is also the condition of the soil the seed is scattered to, but I digress.

    This spoke to me:

    26 In the fear of the LORD there is strong confidence,
    And His children will have a place of refuge.
    27 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life,
    To turn one away from the snares of death.

    Thanks, brother.
