Little Children

June 30, 2016

A young boy, William, 7 years old got saved at Daily Vacation Bible School recently. He was so excited and went home and told his little 3 year old brother, Isaac, that that he needed to give his heart to Jesus.

Isaac replied, “I will give my heart to Jesus someday but I need it right now.” (William and Isaac are the Curtis’ great grandsons)

Children, especially when very young, sometimes do not understand the terminology we use to present the Gospel. Just as a reminder to those of us who witness to make sure that the person we witness to understands how to be saved. 

The simple “3 Things God Can Not Do” is a wonderful way to witness to older children and adults but when talking with younger children we need to make sure they understand. Sometimes it is better to give a tract or witness to the parent and trust God to bring the child to Himself when the child is a little older. Always ask the Holy Spirit to direct you when witnessing.

Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

The Bible

June 29, 2016

THE BIBLE IS THE ONLY THING YOU CAN TRUST IN THIS CHANGING WORLD!
Psalms 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Sin

June 28, 2016

“One reason sin flourishes is that it is treated like a cream puff instead of a rattlesnake.”Billy Sunday

Mark 2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Reunion

June 27, 2016

This past weekend was spent at a reunion with friends and family. What a blessing to share the good times we had together many years ago. It is hard to say good bye to some of these people we are thinking we will not see them again this side of Heaven. But, what a reunion that will be when we all get to Heaven and have eternity to spend with first of all our Savior Jesus and then with our loved ones who have gone on before.

A few people did not come to the school reunion and we missed them. Think of how sad it will be to be in Heaven if friends or family are missing.

Conclusion: Christian, witness to that friend or relative who is not saved. You would be surprised at how many are waiting for you to invite them to be saved.

Unsaved friend, you do not want to miss the great Reunion in Heaven when you die. Make sure of your salvation today.

2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

Are You Welcomed?

This was so good it needed to be posted on the blog.


John 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Yard Sale in Alabama

A salvation while putting up a yard sale sign? Yes and amen!! Handed a man who was walking a tract and bottled water and Carl went through the 3 Things God Can Not Do and the ABC’s of salvation with him and he accepted Christ! Will follow up with him with an encouraging note and a home visit. Praise the Lord!  

God’s Creation

June 24, 2016

Traveling through several different states in the car and having theopportunity to see how wonderful and diverse God’s creation is, makes me appreciate the beauty of His handiwork.
Florida has its beautiful sandy beaches, Tennessee with its many lakes and hills, Kentucky has wonderful grazing land for horses, Ohio with its quaint barns, and New York rural areas with its lush green mountains makes me realize how great God is. He made everything beautiful for us to enjoy. Sometimes we get so busy we forget to look around and take time to appreciate all that God has done for us. Today stop for just a minute and look around at the beauty. Maybe just a small thing like a flower, a butterfly or just watch bees collecting pollen. God is great in the big things He created but He is just as great in the small things.

Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Godly Life

June 23, 2016

You cannot live a Godly life without the Bible.

Psalms 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

The Right Choice

June 22, 2016

Yesterday, I had the privilege of flying to a destination on a jet plane. What normally would take 14 hours to drive took only a little over an hour on a reliable plane. There was a momentary fear when I overheard the pilot say, “Oh no.” After a temporary power failure. Everything was back to normal in a few seconds and the trip was uneventful. I reached my destination safely.

This made me think of the examples on the website of the 3 planes. If you don’t know these examples go to the home page a scroll down until you see the pictures of 3 planes. 

Everyone wants to go to Heaven but many people are trusting in the wrong “plane” to get them there. Trusting in Jesus death, burial and resurrection for payment for your sins is the only way we can reach our destination, Heaven. Have you made the right choice?

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

God’s Promises

June 21, 2016

There are literally hundreds of promises in the Bible. God’s Word is true. He can not lie. We can read the promises ourselves and know that God will do as He promised. Need an answer for a problem? Find a promise in the Bible, pray about it and God will keep His promise to you.
2 Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
