Just A Thought
The Lord said in Matt 6:33: “But seek ye first the
Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you.”
The Lord was not
telling us to be lazy, or to sit around idle and
wait for God to provide our natural needs for us, or
for God to provide for the families we have been
blessed with: He is telling us to seek first the
Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and in so
doing, His truth and His Holy Spirit will guide us
into godly paths, and bless us in obtaining the
things we need to serve Him, to take care of our
churches and our families in the right order, and in
ways taught and approved of the Lord.

"For thou, Lord, hast made me
glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy
hands." (Psalms 92:4)
Most of us when we are blessed
to do a work that is pleasing unto the Lord, afterwards we
sit back and think to ourselves. "Look what I have done."
When really we have done nothing except use the gift that
the Lord has given us. Every good thing that we have, every
good thought that comes out of our minds, comes from the
Lord. Who's work is it that makes us glad, Who's works can
we rejoice in? Surely it is not our works, it is not our
goodness, it is not the works of ours hands, nor the
thoughts that provoked us in doing better. You see we are
speaking about the finished work of Jesus Christ. As David
speaks in this verse, "For thou, Lord, hast made me glad
through thy work." Your work O Lord is what delivers me,
your work that paid the price for my salvation, your work
that made me free from the law of sin death, your work O
Lord, your work alone.
The following quote is from Elder Mark Green in the
March 2017 issue of The Primitive Baptist / The
Christian Pathway / Gospel Appeal; and concerns

“When we avoid doing what we ought to do, it almost
always follows that soon we will begin doing what we
ought not to be doing.”

• Folks love the light when they are doing what is right;
but don't like it much when they are not.
Lord said: “Let your light so shine.” He was not saying to
let folks see what you have done for the Lord, but what the
Lord has done in you.
love darkness rather than light, because they don't want
folks to see what they are doing.
Walking in the light is a full time job: The minute you take
your eye off it, your back in the dark.
sometimes don't like the division of light and darkness
much, and think there has to be a gray area for them to
coast a while. Nope.
never heard anybody say: “I do my best anything in the
dark.” Except maybe sleeping.
PLEASANT is found in Psalms 133:1—3. Some things are Good,
but not pleasant and some things are pleasant but not good.
read herein: Vs.1 – Behold how good and how pleasant it is
for brethren to dwell together in unity!
It is like the pleasant ointment upon the head, that ran
down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to
the skirts of his garments; Vs.3 – As the dew of Hermon, and
as the dew that descended upon mountains of Zion: for there
the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.”
few words are of great value, as we struggle to learn to
deal with our “FEELINGS” in this world. One more quote: John
16:33 – Jesus says – briefly – In this world ye shall have
tribulations but be of good cheer as he has overcome the
