Setting Our Course by the Stars, not the Lights of Passing Ships — 8 Comments

  1. No one can accuse you of not standing firm for principles. Even at seven you have been a determined child. God must be aware how useful some mortals can be when needed. Envy takes no back seats when we do not measure up. Is my pallor green? If there is some insignificant way that I can be what I aught? Thankfulness to God is first on my mind. Because I know it is God that works in us to do His good pleasure. Eph.2:13

  2. Much needed at a time like this, when Sabbaths are full of meetings ,that has nothing to do with planning for eternity to plan secular stuff. We really need to remember who died for us, and who only can save us. Thanks again. Strengthening my faith and my resolve to realize we don't worship people we worship God.

  3. I agree! EG White talks about "bright lights" fading in these last days. We can only put our trust in the Word of God to carry us through in these days just before Jesus comes and not in ANY MAN.

  4. We are all equal in the site of God, non of us should feel more greater than others, in fact, the more blessed we are spiritually the more humbled we should as servants of God. Let's keep our eyes on Christ alone. Amen.

  5. Thank you for your living testimony and your steadfast loyalty to God.
    It touched my heart this morning before I go to the church.

  6. Thanks for another thoughtful blog Brother Earnhardt! I would add that as Christians, we should be people who can be trusted to keep our word (Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord? Who may enter your presence on your holy hill?...Those who...keep their promises even when it hurts. Psalm 15: 1, 4 - New Living Translation). However, our ultimate trust is in Jesus because as humans, we are limited in our sphere and subject to the failings of our nature. As the lines in the hymn say:
    "Stand up, stand up for Jesus! Stand in His strength alone,
    The arm of flesh will fail you, ye dare not trust your own;!"

  7. For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy. Leviticus 11:44
    It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. Psalm 118:8
    Do not trust in princes, In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation. Isaiah 31:1
    The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9

    God since the beginning has asked us not to trust in man but in him. Lets just imagine if the Good samaritan would have put his trust in the pharisees and thought to himself if the more religous man, the leader of the church and a more respected person in a chosen kindred of people has just passed by who am i to help what would it be of that person?

    I like the chorus

    Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace.
