And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days.
13 And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.
14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.
15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.
In today’s church notes from June 19, 2016, we read Lydia’s heart is opened by the Lord. In order to understand the bible and God’s word your heart needs to be opened. A closed heart will not hear the Lord, read his words or follow the Lord. Will the Lord open your heart today?
In God’s word we clearly find out how to become a whosoever and allow the Lord to open your heart.
In Luke 14:27 – we need to bear the cross to be a whosoever.
And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
In John 3:15, 16 – we need to believe to be a whosoever.
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
In Acts 2:21 – we need to call on his name to be a whosoever.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
In James 2:10 – we need to keep the whole law to be a whosoever.
For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
1 John 4:15 – we need to confess to be a whosoever.
Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
Are you ready to become a “whosoever”?
May you continue to search the word of our living God and not lean unto your own understanding. If you don’t know how to become a “whosoever” – reach out to me or leave me a comment. I would be more than happy to show you how.
