Happiness or Joy?

August 16, 2017

The definition of happy in Webster’s Dictionary: feeling pleasure and enjoyment because of your life, situation, etc.                               Happiness depends on what is happening around you, so if the situation changes it can be lost.

Joy according to Webster : a source or cause of great happiness : something or someone that gives joy to someone                      True joy is inward, a gift given to the Christian by God. Joy continues through all circumstances and does not depend on what is happening around you and it is permanent.

Psalms 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Confused?

August 15, 2017

GOD is the author of peace. GOD is not the author of confusion. The answer is to draw close to God through Bible reading and prayer. Also, seek godly counsel from a trusted Christian, pastor or friend.

1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

I Corinthians 1:18

Time for a Tuneup

August 12, 2017

It’s so exciting to get a new car. It runs perfectly and you want to tell everyone about it. Then after a few months it is time for a tuneup. Tires need rotating, oil needs changing and you stop telling people about your new car. Christianity like that. When we first get saved we are excited and want to tell everybody, but after a few months or years the excitement wears off and we no longer want to witness or tell others about the wonderful gift of salvation. Maybe we need a tuneup. Go back to the Bible and get recharged.

Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.


Life and Death

August 10, 2017

In the way of righteousness is life; and in the path thereof there is no death.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Home Sweet Home

August 9, 2017

Have you ever been away from home for awhile. Vacation, business trip or travel. Then it is time to go “home”. What great anticipation. You may live in a mansion or a small cottage, but whatever the property it is still home. As Christians we should have the same love and anticipation for our heavenly home, Heaven. Waiting for us there is Jesus, our loved ones who have gone on before us, and wonders we cannot even imagine. Jesus said:

John 14:2-3 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Love of the World

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

Priorities 

July 28, 2017

August has not even arrived and summer is almost over for some people. School starts soon for the southern states. Some as early as next week. Life seems to move to fast with work, home and responsibilities. In your busy life make sure you take time, first for God, then for family and if priorities are straight every thing else will fall into place.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Billy Graham Quote

Psalms 51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
