Pray For Your Pastor Today!

June 4, 2023

God gave us the Pastor of our church to help us get through hard times. The Pastor officiates at our wedding, celebrates the birth of our children, prays with us in sickness and sorrows, and at the death of a loved one.

All the time having the same problems we have in his own family. He needs our prayers. Take a few minutes and pray for him today.

Pray he will have power of the Holy Spirit to preach the truth. Pray he will not be distracted by people or circumstances. Pray God will comfort him as he has the burden of his own but also takes the burdens of his whole congregation.

Most of all do not have roast preacher for lunch. Do not talk negatively about him or his family. Let us love our Pastor and show him our appreciation.

Words Make a Difference

May 25, 2023
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

On the SOS Events display board there is a question. “Are you 50%, 75% or 100% sure if you died today you would go to Heaven?

That is an important question, but what if you leave out the first line? It would read, If you died today you would go to Heaven.

What is the difference? The sentence that asked the question makes a person wonder if they know they will go to Heaven and makes them think about wanting to know how to get there.

Leave that out and the whole meaning changes. Now it is telling the person reading it that if they die they will go to Heaven.

Words make a difference. Change even one word and the meaning can change. Leave a word out and the meaning can change. Even rearranging words can change the meaning .

The Bible has many versions today. Some of these versions change words and even meanings of what God wants us to know.

Study for yourself and see what God wants to say to you.

Serving God is a Choice!

Jesus prayed often, and He gave us what we call the Lord’s prayer.

If you have difficulty finding something to pray about pray the prayer that God gave us. In that prayer is what we need every day.

We need food, we need forgiveness of our daily sins, we need to forgive others. Everything we need is in this prayer.

Most important of all we need to to honor our Heavenly Father in everything we do.

Once we start praying we will know what additional things we need to pray about.

CH CH. What’s Missing? UR!

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Hebrews 10:26

This church in the photo looks empty and forsaken . Many churches, especially, the small ones die because the people are not faithful.

If circumstances don’t hinder you, go to your church. It is important to encourage the Pastor. You do not want to be part of your church door closing.

Another reason to go to a good Bible believing church is to grow in the knowledge of Jesus. Also, we need the fellowship of other believers.

Looking For Jesus!

May 4, 2023
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;”  Titus 2:13
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” Titus 2:13

Have you ever been excited about a special guest or loved one coming to your house?

You prepare by cleaning, cooking and making sure everything is ready. maybe you don’t know the exact time when they will arrive. Looking out the window, listening for every car or footstep to make sure you are there to greet them.

Christian, that is how much more should we be excited about Jesus coming again. The Bible tells us He is coming in the clouds. We do not know the day or hour but He is coming and it may be soon.

Are you preparing? Is your heart clean from sin? Every area in your life has been given to Him.

Are you reading the Bible everyday, praying and looking for Jesus to come with anticipation?

Jesus is coming. Are you ready?

Titus 2:13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

God is Good!

April 21, 2023
34 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; For his mercy endureth for ever. (‭‭‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭16‬‬:‭34‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

Can you honestly say God is good? God is good all the time has become a popular expression among Christians.

But, do we really mean it? Can we say God is good when tragedy comes? When we loose a loved one. Maybe a lost job, our home or wayward children.

GOD IS GOOD! We can look back on some of these heartaches and see that He was there through it all.

There was a time when I had a hard time thinking about God’s goodness, when my son died, but looking back I realize that God used that in my life to strengthen me. He was there to lift me up in my darkest hour.

God is there for you. In good times and bad we can honestly say, God is good.
