Jesus is Waiting

October 6, 2017

Jesus only goes where He is invited and, He only stays where He is welcome. Have you invited Him to come in? He is waiting for your invitation.

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Faith or Fear

September 28, 2017

“Basically, there are two paths you can walk: faith or fear. It’s impossible to simultaneously trust God and not trust God.”    Charles Stanley

Mark 4:40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

Rainbows

September 21, 2017

This photo was taken yesterday just before Prayer Meeting in Appomattox, VA. What a beautiful reminder of God’s love and protection for us. His promises are true. He promised never to destroy the earth again with a flood, and though we see storms in local areas, He also promised that He would be with us through the storm and reminds us with a beautiful rainbow.

Genesis 9:16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

Labor Day!

Ecclesiastes 3:13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.


Your Pastor 

August 28, 2017

Do you pray for your Pastor? He needs all the help and prayer you can give him. He has many burdens he cannot share with anyone except his Heavenly Father because of his great and many responsibilities for his family and congregation. Pray for him today and everyday.

2 Thessalonians 1:11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:


How To Love The Unlovable 

August 26, 2017

Do you have a neighbor or a family member that is not very lovable? Sometimes certain people are hard to love. Love is a choice. One thing that helps us to love the unlovable is prayer and forgiveness. Pray for that person, not just once but daily. Not that the Lord will bring something bad on them but that God will give YOU the love of Christ for that person. It works. It is hard to harbor ill feelings toward a person you are praying for. 
Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Just One

August 23, 2017

Have you heard the expression “Be careful what you pray for”. God answers prayer specifically. Sometimes we ask for something small when He could have given you something more. This is an example that happened at an SOS Events booth recently. Nothing was happening. No one wanted to stop by to see the “3 Things God Can Not Do”. All through the event the soul winner prayed, “One, Lord, just give us one.” The event was about to end after 4 hours and one young man came over to check things out. He wanted to be saved and in just a few minutes he called upon Jesus to be his Savior. The event ended with JUST ONE! God wanted to show us something. Never again at an event will we pray for just one when God wants to see many people saved.

Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Eclipse 

August 21, 2017

Once every 18 months a complete total eclipse occurs somewhere in the world. Today in the northern USA this wonderful natural event will take place this afternoon. From Georgia northward schools are closing, highways are crowded with people traveling to get a better position to see this unusual sight. Any beautiful occurrence or wonderful thing in the heavens or on the earth reminds us of one thing that the Bible, God’s Holy Word tells us in the very first verse:

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

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.

Hang in There

August 11, 2017

Have you ever felt like you are hanging on with no help in sight? Whatever the trial or situation that makes you feel that way, there is good news for you as a Christian. We have a someone who is right there with us. His name is Jesus. He is the One who will save us. Our helper, deliverer and friend. Call out to Him in prayer.

Psalms 18:2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
