Heading Home

August 26, 2022

When we are on a journey, business or pleasure, the one thing we look forward to is heading home.

As Christians we are on a journey through life. God gives us many things that are for our pleasure. Family, friends, homes, good food, clothing and many things we can enjoy.

God also gives us work to do for him. Love for others, church, witnessing for Him. Many opportunities to do service for the Lord.

However, we should be longing for Home. Heaven. Are we headed in the right direction? We have a roadmap to follow. That is the Bible, God’s Holy Word.

It is important to check the roadmap on a trip, but more important to check the Bible everyday to keep us on the right road.

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Timothy 3:16

If you have not done Porter Barrington Bible Studies you are missing a great opportunity to learn more about the Bible, God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Every person who makes a decision to follow Jesus at a SOS Events venue, receives a Bible study to start their new life with Christ. It is very important that we grow in knowledge and understanding.

It’s All About Jesus!

April 29, 2022

Jesus! In God’s Word, the Bible, Jesus has many names. He is the beginning and the end.

If we don’t know anything else, the one thing we must know and believe to have eternal life is that Jesus died on the cross, He was buried and 3 days later He rose from the dead.

Once we know and accept Him all the other things that He is will become clear.

Jesus is our rock, our advocate, our redeemer and friend. Look at some of Hiss names in the image above and Praise Him for all He has done.

1 Corinthians 6:11 – And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Listen!

February 22, 2022

God promises to listen to our prayers if we are true believers.

The question is do we listen to Him. How does He speak to us? Through His Word, through a Pastor or other wise Christian, or in a still small voice through the Holy Spirit.

When we pray, do we take time for Him to speak to us? Today, decide to stop and listen. It will change our lives.

Love in The Bible

February 8, 2022

There are hundreds of verses in the Bible on the word “love”. It is a wonderful word study.

There are 4 types of love in the Bible.

  1. Phillia Love – A love that is affectionate but not romantic. This love is usually shared between family and friends.
  2. Eros love – A love that is romantic between a man and woman.
  3. Philautia Love – Is a love and respect we should have for ourselves and the Holy Spirit indwelling within us.
  4. Mania Love – This is a love in which we are obsessed. This love leads to false idols and putting things on a pedestal higher than God

Today we have looked at some interesting facts, however, we can know all about the word LOVE but until we experience God’s love all our knowledge means nothing.

The love of GOD for us is found in the familiar verse, John 3:16, 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.

Thankful

November 10, 2021

In the month of November we take time to have a special day of Thanksgiving. But as Christians we should be thankful every day for all that the Lord does for us.

I am especially thankful for the opportunity to write a blog every day. My prayer is that many will read it and get a taste for the Word of God.

I was especially happy when I saw that someone from South America was reading the blog. There is very few people that check it out from South America.

I am especially thankful for everyone from all over the world who get on line and have the opportunity to find Jesus as their Savior.

Fear Not!

October 6, 2021

In this troubled world, there is much fear. Fear of all kinds. Sickness, financial, relationships and a whole lot more.

As Christians the Bible tells us many times to fear not. God has everything under His control.

A very spiritual man told me “Worry is a sin.” How true. When we worry about our situation it is a total lack of trust in God and His promises to us.

Do the circumstances change? NO! But God promises that He is with us and that all things work together for our good.

Right now make a decision to put your trust in God. Confess your sin and ask forgiveness for your lack of faith and give all your worries to Him.

Do You Need Someplace To Hide?

September 27, 2021

Sometimes even when we are adults, we wish we could run away and hide from our problems and circumstances.

The Bible tells us in Psalms that we have a secure hiding place. Run to Jesus, He brings peace and comfort in our chaos and confusion.

Looking For Something?

September 23, 2021

What are you looking for? Success, good health, a friend or an answer to a problem.

There is only one person who can help you with whatever you need, his name is Jesus.

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. (The book is the Bible)

Exodus 23:25 And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

John 15:15 – Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Hebrews 11:6 – But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Not By Power or Might

September 1, 2021

Have you ever tried to do something and you utterly failed? You failed because you were doing it in your own strength.

The Bible tells us it is not by our power or strength, but by the Holy Spirit.

God wants us to take our failures and fears to Him and the Holy Spirit will turn those failures into success if we give it all to Him.
