Best Known Methods for Existing at Home
by Katherine and Sonny Ramsay
With the country in a state of quarantine due to the Covid-19 pandemic people are finding themselves involuntarily working from home and families homeschooling for an undetermined amount of time. My best advice to you is to slow down!
There is not many times you will be given the opportunity like this. Use this opportunity to reconnect and build special memories with your closest loved ones. Or take time to learn something new.
Sonny Ramsay explores 1 Corinthians 12:4-11.
4 Now there are different gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 There are different ministries, but the same Lord. 6 And there are different activities, but the same God produces each gift in each person. 7 A manifestation of the Spirit is given to each person for the common good: 8 to one is given a message of wisdom through the Spirit, to another, a message of knowledge by the same Spirit, 9 to another, faith by the same Spirit, to another, gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10 to another, the performing of miracles, to another, prophecy, to another, distinguishing between spirits, to another, different kinds of tongues, to another, interpretation of tongues. 11 One and the same Spirit is active in all these, distributing to each person as he wills.
Sonny Ramsay talks about how Jesus fulfilled all the prophecies in the Old Testament. How many were there?
Watch Sonny Ramsay teach on 1 John. Can the evil one touch us?
We know that everyone who has been born of God does not sin, but the one who is born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and the whole world is under the sway of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we may know the true one. We are in the true one—that is, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.Little children, guard yourselves from idols. 1 John 5:18-21
Sonny Ramsay takes us into the 1 John, the epistle from John the Apostle.
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light, and there is absolutely no darkness in him. If we say, “We have fellowship with him,” and yet we walk in darkness, we are lying and are not practicing the truth. If we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say, “We have not sinned,” we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 1 John 1:5-10
Does joy come in the midst of suffering? What does that look like? Sonny Ramsay leads us through examples from scripture.
This is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and the one you have sent —Jesus the Messiah.John 17:3
Here is some great insight from Sonny Ramsay on joy.
Psalm 30:5 (CSB)
For his anger lasts only a moment,but his favor, a lifetime. Weeping may stay overnight,but there is joy in the morning.
