    FOLLOW THE RECIPE
    READ EXODUS 30:1 THROUGH 32:35
    Some people cook by the dump method—a little of this and a bit of that. They do not follow a recipe, and the results can be disastrous. It would be to their advantage to follow instructions.

    When the tabernacle was completed, God told Moses to have a perfumer make a special oil to use in anointing the furnishings, Aaron, and Aaron’s sons. The oil consisted of five ingredients. The ingredients had to be measured exactly. The oil would consecrate the tabernacle, making it holy—set apart for God’s use.



    “Collect choice spices . . . blend these ingredients to make a holy anointing oil” (Exodus 30:23,25).



    Christians want God to bless their efforts as they work for Him. They cannot make themselves effective, nor is talent alone enough.



    Rather, you must follow the recipe. In simple faith ask God to anoint you with the Holy Spirit’s power.



    Thought for Today: Jesus freely gave the Holy Spirit to help you live for Him.

    Quicklook: Exodus 30:22–33

    #Acts 11:26 #kjv And the disciples were called Christians first in #Antioch.

    Go back to verse 19: Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the #JEWS ONLY.

    Agrippa was Jewish
    Herod Agrippa II (Hebrew: אגריפס‎; AD 27/28 – c. 92 or 100), officially named Marcus Julius Agrippa and sometimes shortened to Agrippa, was the eighth and last ruler from the Herodian dynasty.

    GOD-HONORING DECISIONS
    READ EXODUS 28:1 THROUGH 29:46
    How can a believer be assured he is walking in God’s will? This question concerns every sincere Christian. This is also God’s concern. He longs for people to walk in His ways so their lives are happy, productive, and God-honoring. One piece of the priests’ garments addressed discerning God’s will for the Israelites.



    “Insert the Urim and Thummim into the sacred chestpiece so they will be carried over Aaron’s heart when he goes into the Lord’s presence. In this way, Aaron will always carry over his heart the objects used to determine the Lord’s will for his people whenever he goes in before the Lord” (Exodus 28:30).



    Inside the chestpiece were two stones called the Urim and Thummim. The priest reached into the chestpiece and chose a stone to reveal God’s will.



    Christians don’t wear a specific garment or choose between two stones to make choices, but God has ways to let us know His will. Principles found in the Bible are to be the basis for our choices. The Holy Spirit guides the Christian’s heart and mind.



    Thought for Today: Every choice you make has the possibility of changing your life forever.

    DOING HIS WORK TOGETHER
    READ EXODUS 16:1 THROUGH 18:27
    God had led the Israelites out of Egypt, but they faced many obstacles before they reached the Promised Land. First, they had to conquer the enemy who was living in the land. One of those enemies was the Amalekites. Joshua led the Israelite army into battle just as Moses had instructed.



    Moses was on a hill along with Aaron and Hur. God had told Moses to lift his arms with the staff of God in his hands.



    As long as Moses held up the staff in his hand, the Israelites had the advantage. But whenever

    he dropped his hand, the Amalekites gained the advantage (Exodus 17:11).



    Aaron and Hur rushed to hold Moses’ arms up until the Israelite army defeated its enemy. Working together, the battle was won.



    Just as Moses’ coworkers lifted his arms that his work might be done, so Christians need to lift one another in prayer that their battles may be won.



    Prayer Suggestion: Ask God how to encourage other Christians as they live and strive to do His work.

    Quicklook: Exodus 17:8–15

  • Good day brothers and sisters, we have now come to the Third Sunday of Epiphany. God does not want us to be divided in our faith, but united. Let’s see what the Smart Book has to say about this;
    1 Corinthians 1:10-18 Amplified Bible
    10 But I urge you, believers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you be in full agreement in what you say, and that there be no divisions or factions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your way of thinking and in your judgment [about matters of the faith]. 11 For I have been informed about you, my brothers and sisters, by those of Chloe’s household, that there are quarrels and factions among you. 12 Now I mean this, that each one of you says, “I am [a disciple] of Paul,” or “I am [a disciple] of Apollos,” or “I am [a disciple] of Cephas (Peter),” or “I am [a disciple] of Christ.” 13 Has Christ been divided [into different parts]? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized into the name of Paul? [Certainly not!] 14 I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15 so that no one would say that you were baptized into my name. 16 Now I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I do not know if I baptized anyone else. 17 For Christ did not send me [as an apostle] to baptize, but [commissioned and empowered me] to preach the good news [of salvation]—not with clever and eloquent speech [as an orator], so that the cross of Christ would not be [a]made ineffective [deprived of its saving power]. 18 For the message of the cross is foolishness [absurd and illogical] to those who are perishing and spiritually dead [because they reject it], but to us who are being saved [by God’s grace] it is [the manifestation of] the power of God.
    So when we all become Christians we are all Disciples of Christ. He’s the one who died on the cross for us. Let’s be united in our faith and display God’s love to one another and to a lost world around us.
    The Lord bless and keep you, His Face shine upon you,
    Chaplain Loehne

    OMNIPOTENT GOD
    READ EXODUS 7:1 THROUGH 9:35
    From the beginning of time, there have been those whose minds seemed to be focused on using their power for evil purposes. Pharaoh was one of those people. He made slaves of the Israelites who were in bondage in his country of Egypt.



    When God sent the plagues, Pharaoh’s magicians were able to duplicate them for a while. However, there came a time when the magicians were not able to keep up.

    Pharaoh’s magicians tried to do the same thing with their secret arts, but this time they failed (Exodus 8:18).



    It seems by this time Pharaoh would have admitted that God was more powerful, but he wouldn’t surrender his pride. Pharaoh continued resisting God.



    There were times when it appeared that Pharaoh’s heart was softening and that he might allow the Israelites the freedom to go into the desert to worship their God. But as the sun hardens clay that was once pliable, Pharaoh’s heart was also hardened. It would take other plagues before this man acknowledged the omnipotent God.



    Pharaoh learned what Christians know: no power is greater than God.



    Thought for Today: Has your heart become hardened in any way toward God?

    Quicklook: Exodus 8:16–19
