    Carmen, thank you so much for your comment on my blog this morning and your prayer for my family. It is a blessing. I am enjoying the current study so much. Presently, in this third installment, I have had my attention called to the number of times the Bible says “take heed of yourself” and am digging deeper. It echoes of godly self-discipline and self-control to me and I know God is working with me on this area of my life. I look forward to extra time to dig deeper as I am off from work next week. I also love learning more of the Hebrew language and it’s meanings. Thank you for your obedience to His callings. I am happy God led me to your study and your blog.

    i guess idleness also allows my mind to wander. Is this really where i am supposed to be, should i do this or that….. keeping myself busy with the things i have alredy been told to do enables me to stay focused and when God whats to redirect my path He will speak, i don’t have to keep asking if He has changed His mind yet.

    In response to the verses in Deuteronomy, I see our own Nation disobeying these commandments. I know it is obvious, but with technology and our “rights” in full force, we have become lazier than ever before! I pray for a revelation to all believers to stand up and stay strong, so that we can hold onto whatever is left of God’s blessing on our country. But first, we must start with our own homes. This week, 4 of my five kids started school and my first goal is to get up early enough to have a productive morning devotional time again. This study has been great to have a focus point of study, and exactly what I need to remind myself of my motives and reason for furthering my relationship with my Adonai.

    “Works-based righteousness (Legalism): “I obey, therefore I’m accepted.” (Matthew 23:1-12)

    Grace-based Righteousness (Excellence in Love/Fulfillment of the Law): “I’m accepted! Therefore, I obey!” (John 14:15)”

    This is absolutely the BEST way I have ever heard or seen this described. My whole existence has been a struggle to grasp the TRUTH in the second descripion and dispel the lie in the first. I have always wanted to be accepted by my works…it is only God’s grace that has shown me the futility in this. I am already accepted b/c of HIS great grace and HIS great WORK…therefore, I work BECAUSE of this TRUTH.

    I so appreciate this study. This year has been a year of diligence and study, and I have seen much fruit, but I have grown idle these past few weeks and I have begun to suffer for it. I apprecite this study as it is convicting and exhorting me not to rely on the work of the past and expect more fruit, but to realize that I must continue in “love” toward my Lord, if I am to expect another harvest.

    God has truly gifted you and revealed many great things. Your analogies, wisdom of Hebrew, and obvious diligence to glorify Him in your teaching shines through each lesson. I only hope to attain such a glorifying ability to teach others.

    God bless you for your disciplined diligence to teach His word.
