Doing God's Will
Episode 742 • Angus Buchan
Our actions speak louder than our words. Showing people that we love them is more powerful than telling them that we love them. Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven."

Today's message entitled 'The Poor' is actually all about priorities. By putting Jesus first, we begin to look after the poor and the needy as an overflow of our love for Him. John 12:1-8 "Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom He had raised from the dead. There they made Him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him. Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said, “Why was this fragrant oil not sold for [b]three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it. But Jesus said, “Let her alone; she has kept this for the day of My burial. For the poor you have with you always, but Me you do not have always.”

I want to speak to you about a problem that many of us have. It's the problem of being too busy. Today's scripture can be found in mark 6:31 - please share this message with someone who needs to hear this. Mark 6:31-32 'And He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat. So they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves.'
Meaning Of Life

John 14:6 'Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."' It's just Jesus, not Jesus plus anything else. Jesus is the only one who died for your and my sins. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
Save Your Family

We are in the family business here at Shalom. Mal 4:6 reminds us that we need to work on our relationships. In these last days, the devil is hell bent on separating the family. Malachi 4:6 "And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers,"

Angus speaks about the incredible power we have available to us through the Holy Spirit. The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, dwells in us. Romans 8:11 "But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you."

2 Corinthians 10:12-13 "For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. We, however, will not boast beyond measure, but within the limits of the sphere which God appointed us—a sphere which especially includes you." "Be careful how you stand lest you fall."

John 17:6-11 “I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You. For I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me. “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours. And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them. Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are."

2 Chronicles 1:10-12 "Now give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people; for who can judge this great people of Yours? Then God said to Solomon: “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches or wealth or honor or the life of your enemies, nor have you asked long life—but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge My people over whom I have made you king— wisdom and knowledge are granted to you; and I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings have had who were before you, nor shall any after you have the like.”
