Jesus, Our Engineer

September 19, 2018

“When the train goes through a tunnel and the world becomes dark, do you jump out? Of course not. You sit still and trust the engineer to get you through.” Corrie ten Boom

Proverbs 3:5&6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

What Have You Done With Jesus?

September 13, 2018

That is a question that each person has to decide for themselves. God has given us free will to choose. Believe that Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection as atonement for sin or reject Him. It is the difference between spending eternity in Heaven or Hell. It is a simple choice. If you think you will wait and decide later, that is a choice. We are not guaranteed another opportunity, life is uncertain. Accidents, ill health and death can happen and we may not have time to accept Jesus later. What have you done with Jesus?

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.

Saved or Lost?

August 30, 2018

If you are trusting in good works, church membership, money or success, you are LOST! The only way to be saved is to trust in, rely upon the only person who can forgive your sins, that Person is JESUS. He came to earth for one purpose, to seek and to save those who are lost.

If you have never accepted Jesus as your LORD and SAVIOR, now is the time to be saved. At the end of our life there is only one question to be answered, Are you saved or lost?

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.

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

“CHOOSE THE BREAD OF LIFE OR YOU ARE TOAST”

John 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Faith in God

August 27, 2018

Our faith is in the God of the Bible who keeps his promises.

Galatians 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

What If ?

August 9, 2018

What if, just for one hour, one day, one week Jesus took your place in your schedule and walked in your shoes? What if you were not given notice in order to make adjustments for a more perfect schedule? What if Jesus went to the places you go to and spoke to the people you acquaint yourself with using the language you use? What if Jesus greeted your family in the same tone you greet them after coming home from a days work?

What if?

I hope He would be pleased with who you are and you would not be bothered by letting Him trade places with you.

We know this would never happen because Jesus cannot sin. However, What if Jesus walked in our path with His heart? Would people see a difference?

Ephesians 4:23-24      King James Version (KJV)

23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

The Bible, the Word of God, is Holy Spirit inspired Scripture. Scripture should permeate every aspect of the believer’s life. To richly dwell means to be at home in abundance. Can you say that the Word of God is abundantly thriving in your heart? Seek the Lord in His Word, ask Him for wisdom and trust that He will guide you.

The Powerful Word

August 4, 2018
The Lord’s Word will not return void. The Word of God is alive and powerful.
Erwin W. Lutzer wrote a great illustration from the book Yesterday, Today, and Forever, The Word of God in the Life of His People for the verse, Jeremiah 23:29.
“An angry young man stood at the back of a train and threw the new Bible his mother gave him as far as he could. Yet months later he returned, repentant that he had mistreated God’s Book. He learned that the damaged Bible had fallen into the hands of a child who read it and was converted. Now both met as brothers in Christ; the one as a restored believer, the other as a newly converted twelve-year-old. What other book can soften the heart of an angry man and convert a child? Only the Bible.

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Jeremiah 23:29  (KJV)

The Cross

Man Kneeling in Front of Cross

1 Corinthians 1:18

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

The Bible

Dwight L. Moody said, “The Bible was not given for our information, but for our transformation.”

Romans 12:2

“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.”
