September 3, 2017

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.


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.

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

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

The Devil

A Good Start

“The prayer offered to God in the morning during your quiet time is the key that unlocks the door of the day. Any athlete knows that it is the start that ensures a good finish.” – Adrian Rogers

Pray for America

Today, the day before we celebrate our freedom, let us take a few minutes to pray for America.

What Would You Do?

April 7, 2016

What would you do differently if you knew Jesus was coming today?

Acts 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

10 Blessings

March 19, 2016

God gives His children many blessings. The challenge for you today is to stop and name ten blessings the Lord has given you. It would be a good idea to do that daily. Sometimes we as Christians can be negative. Let’s look at the positive every day and our negativity will disappear.

My ten blessings for today are as follows:

1. Salvation (He took me out of the mire and placed me on solid ground)

2. The Bible (my guidebook for living)

3. Prayer (He hears and answers)

4. My spouse (my friend, companion, helper, lover)

5. Children (sons and daughters who love me and are there in times of joy and sorrow)

6. Grandchildren (the little ones make me smile and the older ones give me joy as they serve the Lord)

7. Great grandchildren (it is a blessing to see them born and watch them grow)

8. The promise of Heaven (many of my loved ones have gone on but I will see them again, glad reunion)

9. Friends (people who love me and stick by me through whatever happens, most of all they pray for me)

10. SOS Events ministry (many opportunities to see people come to Christ and a way I can serve the Lord)

These are only 10 of the many blessings God has given me. How about you?

Psalms 3:8 Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

Are We His Disciple?

February 15, 2016

Little is known of some of the original disciples, except of course Judas who betrayed Jesus. The study of each of them show us what God can do with ordinary men. They were from all walks of life, fishermen and tax collectors. Some were respected and others hated.

Jesus is no respecter of people. He loved them regardless of what they did for a living, what their position in life. He gave everyone an opportunity to to follow Him just as He gives us that opportunity today. He knew Judas would betray Him, Peter would deny Him and that all would run at His crucifixion. Still He used 11 of these men to preach the gospel and become the leaders of the Christian Faith.

We too can be used of God to further the Gospel. It is our commitment to God and determination to follow Him that will make us successful. The plan of salvation is simple and it is easy to witness but it is not easy to follow Christ with no reservations. Are we going to follow when the path is easy and run when things get tough? We serve a risen Savior and still have freedom to tell others. Let us use our time to bring others to Jesus. 

Twelve men changed the world with the gospel. If each of us would win those around us, we could change the world today.

Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

Are You Sitting?

February 7, 2016

Could a mariner sit idle if he heard the drowning cry? Could a doctor sit in comfort and just let his patients die? Could a fireman sit idle, let men burn and give no hand? Can you sit at ease in Zion with the world around you damned?” 

Leonard Ravenhill

People around us are dying without Christ. We need to stop sitting and start witnessing. All of us can pray for the lost and we can had out a tract. Most of us have opportunities to witness to someone, a delivery man, a wrong number on the phone, a person in the grocery store. Look for people to tell about Jesus. When you get to heaven, do not go in empty handed? Many Christians have never won anybody to Jesus in their lifetime. How sad. Do not be one of them. Tell someone about Jesus today.

Acts 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
