BIBLE 004 (blackfoot 2)


Matthew 26, 39:

And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Acts 27, 23:

For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve

1 Corinthians 15, 31:

I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

Paul said he dies daily. Dying daily helps us to go further with Jesus remembering "whose [we are] and whom [we] serve."

Jesus gave a beautiful example of going further.

In Luke 22, 44, "going further" led him to Gethsemane, to the cross, and to self-surrender and holy resignation.

Going further with God leads to victory.

In Samuel 1, Hannah was sorrowed. She was not experiencing victory. Hannah prayed. We read that by the 18th verse, her countenance and spirit have been lifted.

Going further sometimes means extending kindness and forgiveness towards others (Proverbs 11, 17):

The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.

We gain victory in extending kindness towards others. Everyone benefits in doing so. Forgiveness often frees us.

"There is always blessing in going further with God."


"God does not seek to displace strong individuals but to display his strength in them."


Galatians 6, 2:

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
LEANING ON OTHERS "We don't want to lean on those that are going a direction we don't want to go towards. I don't know if its possible to lean in a direction without going that direction."

Song of Solomon 8, 5 speaks of leaning upon our Beloved.

Proverbs 3, 5 says:

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

We want to lean upon our Beloved and not those that will lead us to destitution nor upon our own understanding.


"The best form of teaching and the kindest way of correction is by example."

2 Corinthians 2, 7-8:

...Contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.

Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him.

Romans 15, 1

We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
