Salvation

April 28, 2018

Salvation is freely offered. It has been paid for through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross. All you have to do is admit you are a sinner, believe that Jesus died for you and that He is giving you this opportunity to trust in Him, then call on Him to come into your life.

John 3:16 says, 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.

Romans 3:23 tells us, For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 5:8, But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

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

Romans 10:9, That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

That is a promise from God.

Something to Think About

April 26, 2018

As we examine the activities of our day, we might entertain the thought of change. Being willing to let the Lord change us is an important part of our growth. Romans 12:1-2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” In these verses God tells us three things on how we can partner with Him for internal and external change. 1) Present your life, work, and ministry to Him. 2) Don’t follow the pattern of the world, as you might miss out on the radical changes He wants for you and 3) Renew your mind. This can be done by staying in the Scriptures and praying as you seek God’s wisdom for your life.

Who is your Identity in?

April 25, 2018

Identification is more than our picture, our name or our actions. Our identity goes deep into our being, our soul. Have you ever felt lost in who you are? Genesis 2:7 says, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” That is where our identity started. As we discover God and learn who He is and how He loves us, we realize we have a choice to accept Him, trusting Him to be our Heavenly Father. It is then we can choose to have our identity in Christ for eternity. Matthew 16:26 says, “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

If you question your identity being in Christ, please my friend, acknowledge and admit that you have sin in your life, believe that Jesus died for you, that He was buried and was raised from the dead. He is in Heaven giving you the opportunity to trust in Him. All you need to do is call upon His name. Romans 10:13, “For whosoever(you) shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.”

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.

You can be 100% where your identity is. Mine is IN CHRIST.

Fresh Start

April 21, 2018

There’s something about starting the day off studying God’s Word, whether it be the opened pages of the Bible or the push of a button on your device.  Meditating and making notes as to hide His Words in your heart for use that day.

II Timothy 2:15 says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

God’s Handiwork

April 4, 2018

Today, look around you at God’s handiwork. Find something in His creation that you can Praise the Lord for, even if you feel depressed or sad. There was a time when I did not feel like getting out of bed because of the death of a son, but I would find one or more things that God created that I could thank Him for and everyday it got a little bit better, until finally I could Praise Him for everything. We have an awesome God that loves and cares for us.

Wednesday or Friday

March 28, 2018

The Bible says that Jesus was 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb before His resurrection. Biblical Scholars have different opinions of when He died. Some think Wednesday and others say Friday because time was calculated differently than our calendar today. Whenever you believe Jesus died, is not as important as you knowing and believing that Jesus died, was buried and rose again so that you might be saved. As Christians we can have different opinions about the times but we must agree to disagree “agreeably” and love one another.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

God’s Time

March 11, 2018

Did you remember to set your clocks ahead? Those of us who live in certain States in the USA have a time change twice a year and a lot of us do not like the change. Our internal time clocks have readjust to the one hour difference. If you are one who loves “Daylight Saving Time” or you would rather stay on “Standard Time” there is one thing we as Christians should remember. God’s timing is always perfect. Maybe He is amused at our attempt to make time change. There is still 24 hours in everyday no matter what the clock tells us. This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Genesis 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
