1 Samuel 24:14 (NKJV) 14 After whom has the king of Israel come out? Whom do you pursue? A dead dog? A flea? FOR THANKSGIVING DAY 2020PSALMS 100:1-5 A Psalm of Thanksgiving. Make a joyful shout to the LORD all you lands!  2Serve the LORD with gladness; come before His presence with singing. 3Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. 4Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.

Song of Solomon 7:10I am my beloved’s, and His desire is toward me. GLORIFY GOD TOGETHERROMANS 15:7-13 Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God. 8Now I say that Jesus Christ has become a servant to the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made to the fathers, 9and that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy, as it is written: “For this reason I will confess to You among the Gentiles, And sing to Your name.” 10And again he says: “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people!” 11And again: […]

1 Samuel 23:1-2 1  Then they told David, saying, Behold, the Philistines fight against Keilah, and they rob the threshing floors. 2 Therefore David enquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I go and smite these Philistines? And the Lord said unto David, Go, and smite the Philistines, and save Keilah.  CHRIST’S EXAMPLEROMANS 15:1-6 We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification. 3For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of […]

Isaiah 6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. THE LAW OF LOVEROMANS 14:14-23 I know and am convinced by the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean of itself; but to him who considers anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean. 15 Yet if your brother is grieved because of your food, you are no longer walking in love. Do not destroy with your food the one for whom Christ died. 16 Therefore do not let your good […]

John 13:34-3534 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. OUR GIVING AN ACCOUNT TO GODROMANS 14: 7-13 For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. 8 For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. 9 For to this end Christ […]

1 Samuel 22:1515 Did I then begin to enquire of God for him? Be it far from me: let not the king impute any thing unto his servant, nor to all the house of my father: for thy servant knew nothing of all this, less or more. THE LAW OF LIBERTYROMANS 14:1-6 Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things. 2 For one believes he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables. 3 Let not him who eats despise him who does not eat and let not him who does not eat judge him who eats; for God […]

Psalm 52:4,8 4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue. 8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever. PUT ON CHRISTROMANS 13:11-14  And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now, our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. 12 The night is far spent the day is at hand. Therefore, let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. 13 Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in […]

1Samuel 22:14  Then Ahimelech answered the king, and said, And who is so faithful among all thy servants as David, which is the king’s son in law, and goeth at thy bidding, and is honourable in thine house? LOVE YOUR NEIGHBORROMANS 13:8-10 Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. 9For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, […]

Romans 5:20 20  Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: THE CIVIL MAGISTRATEROMANS 13:1-7 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority?  Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4For he is […]
