Absolute Truth

Written by Michelle Jacobson

Take God's Word as an absolute -Live outside ofrepparttar fishbowl!

Throughrepparttar 137686 eyes of a fish Inrepparttar 137687 fishbowlrepparttar 137688 fish lives his life looking at his reflection inrepparttar 137689 glass. He sees himself inrepparttar 137690 mirror and only hasrepparttar 137691 ones inrepparttar 137692 fishbowl to compare himself to.

He argues with his siblings some but they are all familiar with each other. They know how they look and act. They eat, swim, and rest.

He doesn't know that life outsiderepparttar 137693 bowl is huge in comparison...

Outsiderepparttar 137694 bowl We sit on this planet earth not realizingrepparttar 137695 outside much ofrepparttar 137696 time. The more we look to Jesus and what has been done for us,repparttar 137697 more we see outside ofrepparttar 137698 bowl.

When we know that His word isrepparttar 137699 truth it makesrepparttar 137700 fish-language we hear everyday seem small and pointless! When we are speaking His Word, we are quotingrepparttar 137701 truth!

God's Word isrepparttar 137702 words of truth from outsiderepparttar 137703 planet earth fishbowl!

Saved When we come to say that Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised Him fromrepparttar 137704 grave we are saved (Romans 10:9,10).

It doesn't matter what we've believed before. It doesn't matter what we've done. It doesn't matter what we've said...

We are moved intorepparttar 137705 kingdom of God.

God made things simple for us because He loves us so much more than we can imagine (Ephesians 3:17-19).

God's Word Is Absolute In order to remain seeingrepparttar 137706 truth clearly then we need to take God's Word as an absolute.

It is completely truth. There isn't part of it that's a lie. There isn't part of it that's wavering inrepparttar 137707 wind in any way. It's absolutelyrepparttar 137708 truth.

Are you building your own cistern?

Written by Michelle Jacobson

It's like looking at one star inrepparttar middle of a dark sky...

The star stands still while you fly up to it.

As you get closer you see someone standing there holding an object. You can't see what it is so you move even closer. It's a cup that is almost vase shaped.

You watch asrepparttar 137685 person pours some water intorepparttar 137686 top of it. -Beforerepparttar 137687 person even finishes pouring into it,repparttar 137688 water is flowing out parts ofrepparttar 137689 sides andrepparttar 137690 bottom!

You watchrepparttar 137691 person get upset and go for more water to fillrepparttar 137692 cup.

You're still watching but you slowly start to float backwards, away fromrepparttar 137693 star and into space.

All ofrepparttar 137694 sudden you stop and watch water float right byrepparttar 137695 star. It just continues to flow right on past this person that is still upset overrepparttar 137696 holes inrepparttar 137697 container...

Do you realize that we humans are too good at fighting to do more to fix a problem -and yet sometimes we missrepparttar 137698 flow ofrepparttar 137699 best?

God knew this He had it written down for us in Jeremiah 2:13. He said, "For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me,repparttar 137700 fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water."

The First Evil Let's look atrepparttar 137701 first evil. God's people have left Him. He isrepparttar 137702 fountain of living water. God doesn't have any holes... The flow keeps on continuing from Him with no end...

The Second Evil God's people hewing their own cisterns isrepparttar 137703 second evil.

To really understand this verse we need to understandrepparttar 137704 words that were used. The word 'hewed' means chopped, hacked, or shaped by cutting to be made smooth.
