Do Christians Face Tragedy?

July 18, 2018

Another sad news story of Christians facing tragedy was posted on Facebook today: “Pray for the ministry of New Life Baptist in Clinton NC. They were headed here to the youth conference and blew a tire. The driver’s young daughter passed away. Others injured, expected to recover.” God does not promise life without trials to the Christian, what He does promise is that He will be with us and comfort us through the trial. If you know someone who is facing a trial in their life today, please pray for them and see if you can be used of God to comfort them. Remember the people who are affected by this bus accident and the Moody Aviation plane crash. Please pray for them.

2 Corinthians 1:4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

Packing for Your Trip to Heaven

June 28, 2018

Just as we pack for a trip, there are things we need to “pack” on our journey toward Heaven. The first and most important is Salvation. Being saved is our ticket, and without it we cannot enter. Prayer, Faith, Love Joy, Patience, Goodness, Truth, Service, Witnessing and Forgiveness. (you may think of a few more) are needed for our trip. In this picture is a cat which cannot be taken and on our life’s journey we need to leave out things also, Hate, Lying, Gossip, Pride and Disobedience are a few. As you prepare for Heaven, what are you “packing” to be ready?

1 Peter 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

Time For Love

June 23, 2018

This time of year seems to have a lot of celebrations that focus on love. Weddings, engagements and anniversaries. It is wonderful to see couples who love one another. Maybe you are one of the people who do not have that special someone in your life who loves you. You have been hurt, your spouse has died or deserted you. The good news is you DO have someone who loves you and will never leave you. That person is Jesus. He loves you so much He died for you and He will never leave you or forsake you. If you have not accepted Him as your Savior, do it today.

1 John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Witnessing in the Business World

June 22, 2018

Carolyn Curtis had a great opportunity to share with business women. Women Empowering Business, FL, meets every Wednesday morning. Witnessing for the Lord wherever we can.

Reminder!

June 16, 2018

Tomorrow is Father’s Day. A time to honor your Dad for all he does for you. Maybe your father is no longer here or he was never there for you. You have a FATHER who loves you, protects you and will always be there for you. Give thanks for your physical father, and especially for GOD THE FATHER.

Ephesians 6:2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
