Life and Living:
every person across the world is concerned about making a
living and making a life also beyond only living. Jesus two
thousand years ago and in combat with Satan stated the
substance of it. By the way this is true for Off the Beaten Path
and on the beaten path.
1. What is your Life?
“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift
you up. Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that
speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother,
speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou
judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy:
who art thou that judgest another?
Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into
such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and
get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the
morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that
appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and
do this, or that. But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all
such rejoicing is evil. Therefore to him that knoweth to do
good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” (James 4:10-17)
2. How should you live according to Jesus.
“But Jesus answered him, saying, ‘It is written, Man shall
not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds
out of the mouth of God.” (Luke 4:4)
3. Uttermost Life and Living.
“Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or,
What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your
heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these
things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his
righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow
shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the
day is the evil thereof.” (Matthew 6:31-34)
