John 14:4

John 14:4

You know the way to the place where I am going.

After Thought

"Follow Me!" Those are the words of salvation that takes into account our will and our behavior. Faith follows the Lord in His steps and we know that as we do, where He is, we will be also.

Ephesians 5:27

Ephesians 5:27

Psalm 141:3

Psalm 141:3

Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.

After Thought

The Bible says that "out of that which fills the heart the mouth speaks" (Luke 6:45). This explains why David wanted God to help control his speech so that in anger no vain or inappropriate word would come out during his prayer time that would defile it.

Proverbs 11:1

Proverbs 11:1

The LORD detests the use of dishonest scales, but he delights in accurate weights.

After Thought

There cannot be the true grace of God where there is not honesty. An honest man's principles are fixed, therefore his way is obvious.

Isaiah 32:2

Isaiah 32:2

Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a parched land.

After Thought

When a righteous king rules the people in his realm are a blessing and help to all. They each display the attributes of their king. In the same way, Christians are to behave in a manner worthy of their King. Be a blessing to someone today.

1 Corinthians 15:49

1 Corinthians 15:49

Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly.

After Thought

This dog is a humorous reminder that we all bear two images. The first is the obvious image of mankind that is temporal. The second is eternal. We carry in us the image of our Father in heaven.

1 John 1:7

1 John 1:7

But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.

After Thought

Darkness separates us from one another. Even healthy eyes cannot see in total darkness. God's presence in our lives gives us the ability to truly see.

Psalm 71:9

Psalm 71:9

Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone.

After Thought

His faithful friend bore with him the burdens of youth and now he faithfully bears the burdens of her old age. She still gets to go where he goes. A true testament of love and friendship that mirrors God's promise that "He will never leave us nor forsake us." (Deuteronomy 31:6)
