God Delights in Honesty & Cheerful Giving and Detests What the World Considers Great

1. God Delights in Honest People

“If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another.” (I John 1:7). To walk in the light means first of all that we hide nothing from God. We tell Him everything, exactly as it is. I am convinced that the first step towards God is honesty. God detests those who are insincere. Jesus spoke against hypocrites more than He spoke against anyone else. God does not ask us to be holy or perfect first of all, but to be honest. This is the starting point of true holiness, and from this spring flows everything else.

And if there is one thing that is really easy for anyone of us to do, it is to be honest. So, confess sin immediately to God. Don’t call sinful thoughts by “decent” names. Don’t say, “I was only admiring the beauty of God’s creation,” when actually you lusted adulterously with your eyes. Don’t call “anger” as “righteous indignation.” You will never get victory over sin if you are dishonest. And don’t ever call “sin,” “a mistake,” because Jesus’ blood can cleanse you from all your sins, but not from your mistakes!! He does not cleanse dishonest people. There is hope only for honest people. “He who covers his sin will never prosper” (Prov.28:13).

Why did Jesus say that there was more hope for prostitutes and for thieves to enter God’s kingdom than for religious leaders? (Matt.21:31). Because prostitutes and thieves make no pretence of being holy. Many young people are turned away from churches because church-members give them the impression that they themselves have no struggles. And so those young people think, “That holy bunch of people will never understand our problems!!” If this true of us, then we are unlike Christ Who drew sinners to Himself.

Joyful Toons – Bread of Life | Grace Cafe & Radio

1) Bread of Life – 2 Corinthians 2:14

Jesus said in John 6:35 “I am the bread of life”. It is up to the believers to take the Bread of Life (Jesus) out of the Bakery (the church building), to where the hungry people are. After eating “Satan’s Garbage”, the aroma of the Bread of Life will certainly smell good.

2) Grace Cafe – 2 Corinthians 1:20

All of God’s promises throughout the Bible are fulfilled in Jesus. The grace of God has been made freely available to us through the blood of Jesus.

3) Grace Radio – Ephesians 2:8

Just as we cannot hear radio waves without a radio receiver, so we cannot receive God’s grace without faith, and that faith itself is a gift to us from God.

These Toons are created and made by Michael Waters. More toons can be viewed on his website.

Six Psalms Of Encouragement by Zac Poonen

In Psalm16 David says that the Lord and the saints are all that he wants. In verse 3, he says that he delights in God’s people! All men will know that we are the disciples of Jesus when they see that we love one another. Verse 8, “I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will never be moved”, was quoted by Peter, as referring to the Lord Jesus (Acts.2:25) We are to follow Jesus’ example and set the Lord before our face always in everything that we say or do. Then He will be at our right hand to support us too. In God’s presence, there is “fullness of joy”, and at His right hand there are eternal pleasures (v.11). Joy and pleasure are found in their purest form only in God’s presence where they are eternal. Earthly joys and pleasures are shallow and short-lived.

Psalm 23 is the Shepherd psalm. When the Lord is our Shepherd, we will lack nothing (v.1). HE makes us to lie down. HE leads us. HE restores us. HE guides us. Very often we think about what we have to do for the Lord. But here the emphasis is on what the Lord does for us. We can be
effective for God only as we allow Him first to do a work in us. We fear no evil, because HE is with us. HE prepares a table for us and HE anoints our head with oil. Then our cups begin to run over and goodness and mercy follow us everywhere until we reach our eternal home.

In Psalm 66. David praises God for bringing him into a place of blessedness. But this was through many trials. In verses 10 to 12, we read that God took David through sickness, fire and waterandhuman oppression before bringing him to a place of spiritual prosperity. The word translated place of abundance” here is used in only one other place in Scripture – in Psalm 23:5 – where it is translated as “overflows”. So the way to have an overflowing life of blessing is through trial and suffering.

Psalms 91 proclaims the blessedness and security of the one who lives in “the secret place of the Most High”. For us, that secret place is the wounded side of Jesus. Living in “the shadow of the Almighty” implies that God is going in front of us, and we are walking in His shadow (v.1). The safest place in the whole world is the center of God’s perfect will. The Lord promises to deliver us from both our enemies – Satan (the trapper) and sin (deadly disease) (v.3). He will save us from obvious sins (daytime dangers) and from subtle, deceptive sins (night-time dangers) (v.5,6). Even if 11,000 Christians around us do not believe in a victorious life, He will keep us from falling into sin (v.7).

We may have to face many afflictions, but in them all, no evil will ever befall us (v.10). He has appointed angels to care for us, as long as we walk in His will. Satan (the lion and the serpent) will always be crushed under our feet (v.13). God will answer our prayers and set us on high and give us length of life so that we do not die until we have finished our appointed task (v.15,16).

Psalm 112 describes the blessedness of one who fears the Lord. Such a man’s children will be blessed and he will prosper. He will get light from God when he is in darkness. He is righteous and compassionate and lends to those in need. He will not be afraid of bad news because his heart trusts in the Lord steadfastly. God will honour him and the wicked will be envious of him. “God’s constant care of him will make a deep impression on all who see it” (v.6-Living). That’s how it should be in our lives. People around us should be deeply impressed when they see how God has blessed us.

Psalm 139 describes the fact that God is everywhere and knows all things. We are in God’s presence everywhere we go (v.7-12). That is what makes our life so secure. His foreknowledge has also planned every day of our earthly lives right from the day we were born and written it down in a book (v.16). God will show us that plan one page at a time. If we live in that plan, we will have no regret when we come to the end of our earthly lives.
