Troubled World!

March 5, 2022

We live in a world full of trouble. Wars, disease, pestilence and natural disasters.

That brings fear into the hearts of many people, even Christians. God tells us to fear not. Have faith in Him.

Do you have little or no faith? A verse from the Bible for you.

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20

Y El les dijo: Por vuestra poca fe; porque en verdad os digo que si tenéis fe como un grano de mostaza, diréis a este monte: “Pásate de aquí allá, y se pasará; y nada os será k. Mateo 17:20

A Good Thing To Know At Any Age! Jesus Loves Me!

January 26, 2022

A church in Atlanta was honoring one of its senior pastors who had been retired many years. He was 92 at that time and I wondered why the church even bothered to ask the old gentleman to preach at that age.

After a warm welcome, introduction of this speaker, and as the applause quieted down, he rose from his high back chair and walked slowly, with great effort and a sliding gait to the podium.

Without a note or written paper of any kind he placed both hands on the pulpit to steady himself and then quietly and slowly he began to speak….

“When I was asked to come here today and talk to you, your pastor asked me to tell you what was the greatest lesson ever learned in my 50-odd years of preaching. I thought about it for a few days and boiled it down to just one thing that made the most difference in my life and sustained me through all my trials. The one thing that I could always rely on when tears and heartbreak and pain and fear and sorrow paralyzed me…

The only thing that would comfort was this verse….

“Jesus loves me this I know.
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong,
We are weak but He is strong…..
Yes, Jesus loves me….
The Bible tells me so.”

The old pastor stated, “I always noticed that it was the adults who chose the children’s hymn ‘Jesus Loves Me’ (for the children of course) during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could see they knew it the best.”

“Here for you now is a Senior version of Jesus Loves Me”:

JESUS LOVES ME
Jesus loves me, this I know,
Though my hair is white as snow
Though my sight is growing dim,
Still He bids me trust in Him.

(CHORUS)
YES, JESUS LOVES ME.. YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME, FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.
Though my steps are oh, so slow,
With my hand in His I’ll go
On through life, let come what may,
He’ll be there to lead the way.

(verse 2)
When the nights are dark and long,
In my heart He puts a song..
Telling me in words so clear,
“Have no fear, for I am near.”

(Verse 3)
When my work on earth is done,
And life’s victories have been won.
He will take me home above,
Then I’ll understand His love.

(CHORUS)
I love Jesus, does He know?
Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say,
That I love Him every day.

“As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.” John 15:9

Do You Need Your Sin Forgiven?

May 4, 2021

Everyone, even the most Godly person has sin in their lives. It may be something we have said or done to displease our Savior. It may be something we should have done for Him, but didn’t. Whatever our sin, God is faithful to forgive and cleanse us. We are clean!

Our sin is as far as the East from the West to be remembered no more by God. It is behind us. Jesus told the woman at the well “Go and sin no more.” We need to do the same.

Love always

April 11, 2021

When Jesus was asked the greatest commandments, both had to do with love.  We should make that a priority.  How much would our world be impacted if we did this?

Matthew 22: 36-40

Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Lose something?

April 10, 2021

Have you ever lost something?  You will search all over, sometimes looking in places more than once until you find it. 

Read this Bible story below about a woman who loses a gold coin.  She looks diligently until she finds it.  The joy she feels when she does find it is the same joy expressed by angels when ONE sinner repents.  Be part of that joy.  Tell others about Jesus.

Luke 15: 8-10

Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she loses one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she finds it?  And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbors together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.  Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repents.

The Joy of the LORD

April 9, 2021

Do you have joy?  Life is full of difficulty.  Don’t let the hard times steal the joy that Jesus can give you.  In fact, you can be joyful knowing that God is your defender!

Psalm 5:11

But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

Psalm 98:4

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
