Three Great Life Principles

Three great life principles that Christians live by are:

1) Luke 6:38: “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you” (cf. Proverbs 11:24; Proverbs 19:17; 2 Corinthians 9:6).

We can’t outgive God (cf. Malachi 3:10).

2) Luke 12:48: “For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more” (cf. 1 Corinthians 9:16-23).

Those folks who have been blessed with much (talents, monies, etc.), much will be required of them

Example: Parable of the talents (Matthew 25:14-30).

3) Galations 6:7-8: “Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life” (2 Corinthians 9:6).

Example: Rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-25).

What Catches My Ear At The Cross?

When the criminal that realized the Lord”s innocence stated:

“Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom” (Luke 23:42)

Our Lord stated to him:

“Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise” (Luke 23:43).

This was a promise, not only to the criminal, but to us as followers of Christ. When we die, we will be carried by the angels to meet our Lord in Paradise (Abraham’s bosom – Luke 16:22). Won’t that be a great occasion? I’m looking forward to it.
