Trying to Loose Weight?

August 30, 2017

Many of us are trying to loose weight. We diet, exercise, and try to stay away from food that will keep us from our goal. The Bible says we have weight that we need to get rid of and it is called sin. We need to decide to loose the “weight” of sin in our lives. Jesus said He is the bread of life. We must first trust Him to take away our sin. Then a good exercise is to read the Bible and pray everyday. Then put away anything that will keep sin in our lives. It may be wrong friends, or a bad habit, or going to places where we are tempted to pick up our sin again. Let us loose the weight we need to both physical and spiritual.

John 6:48  I am that bread of life. Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Sin

August 2, 2017

Sin may be just a 3 letter word but if you carry it around long enough it will cause death.

PilateĀ 

April 12, 2017

Pilate tried to prove his innocence by washing his hands, but his sin could not be taken away by washing. The only thing that can wash away sin is the blood of Jesus and trusting in His death, burial and resurrection. Pilate was guilty of helping to send Jesus to the cross, but God used him to fulfill prophecy.

Matthew 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

God’s Forgiveness

Nobody

There’s nobody so bad that they can’t be saved and nobody so good that they don’t need to be saved.

Weeds In Your Garden

July 15, 2016

Do you have weeds in your garden? Some are very tiny and the roots have not taken hold. Others have a large root system and are almost impossible to pull up without the ground being softened by rain. The large ones when pulled up leave a bare spot in the lawn or your garden. If all the roots are taken up the weeds die but, if some of the roots are left behind the weeds will spring up again.

The weeds are like the temptation to sin in our life. The sin starts out very tiny, maybe just a thought that is not acted upon. But if we do not kill that thought before it grows, soon it will become a large and it will be much harder to get rid of because that sin will be rooted deep into a hardened heart. In order to completely remove that sin, our heart must be softened by the Holy Spirit and then the roots must be removed when we ask Jesus to forgive our sins and cleanse us. If we do not for sake the sin in our life it is like that little weed that root was not completely removed and we can once again be caught up in that same sin.

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

 

Creator

April 15, 2016

Our bodies are fearfully and wonderfully made by the Great Creator, God himself. As I sit by the bedside of my very ill spouse I can view with wonder how our bodies react to heal themselves. The doctors have even given God the Glory for the resilience in the body. We have seen many small miracles.

Just think, when you cut your finger or maybe break a bone in your arm or leg then a few weeks later everything is back to normal. You may have a scar from the cut or a slight limp from the break but you are back to being able to function normally.

Sin is like that. When we sin and ask forgiveness, God forgives completely, however, there may be a “scar”. A broken marriage leaves children with only one parent in the home, theft may bring jail time, drinking may cause illness or death and on it goes. Are we forgiven? Absolutely! God not only created our wonderful body He made a way to be forgiven of all our sins through trusting in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 4:19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
