Christian Service

March 3, 2021
Psalm 100:2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Why and how do you serve The Lord Jesus?

A slave serves because he has to.
An employee serves because he needs to.
A Christian serves because he wants to.

Bring God Back!

February 11, 2021

The United States of America was founded on the Word of God. The founding fathers gave us freedom OF religion, NOT freedom FROM religion.

Christians, we must pray that our country turns back to God.

Many other nations also need to honor God the Creator. Our whole world is in trouble.

The first step if you are not a Christian is to put your faith in the Lord Jesus. He blesses individuals as well as nations. That is a good place to start.

Do You Know Him?

His name is Jesus.

Worship The Lord Today!

January 31, 2021

There may be reasons you can’t go to church today. Illness, work or weather may prevent you from being in church. Many places in the Northern United States have cancelled church today because of snow, ice and dangerous driving conditions. If you cannot go use this time to gather round your family and read the Bible and pray together. If your are alone what a great opportunity to fellowship with the Lord without distractions.

Some people have not attended church service for months because of coronavirus. There are many opportunities for you to worship virtually. Do not neglect time to worship, not just on Sunday but everyday of the week.

Psalms 29:2 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

Are You Ready?

January 28, 2021

Today in our world there is a great lack of true wisdom. We see politicians make decisions that effect all of us but they don’t want these decisions to pertain to themselves.

Some police officers believe they are above the law but are quick to make the average citizen obey whatever they say.

Teachers who take advantage of students, etc., we could go on and on, but the main problem is that we have allowed the lawmakers to take God out of our society.

We need wisdom in our homes, our cities, counties and nation.

Today’s post is one that was written four years ago and unfortunately nothing has changed. In fact things are getting worse. The Bible does predict that things will get worse before Jesus returns. Are you ready for His return?

Be Careful How You Speak!

Disney quote

The Bible tells us many times to be careful how we speak. Sometimes it is not what we say, it is how we say it.

Let us work on speaking kind words and edifying, not discouraging.

Ephesians 4:29 – Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers

What is your story?

January 21, 2021

Everyone who is saved has a story. How did you come to know the Savior, Jesus?

There are many testimonies that have been told:

A man who went by a church, heard the music and walked in, asked the usher how he could be saved.

The little girl who went to church and when the alter call was given followed the soul winner out of curiosity and trusted Jesus as her Savior.

The man whose lost his son in a tragic accident. Before his last breath, the son asked his Dad, will I see you in Heaven?

The person who was about to commit suicide and picked up a tract, read it and was wonderfully saved.

What is your story? You need to tell it. Write it down. Tell it to someone in person or through social media. Your story could touch someone’s heart and be the very thing that will cause them to accept Jesus.

A Verse For Christians Today

January 20, 2021

On this day, Christian, we need to especially be in prayer for our country.

Are we humble? Seeking God’s Face? Praying? living a life with sins forgiven and trying to please The Lord?

That is what it will take to turn our country back to God. Not just by a few Christians, but by everyone who is truly born again.

Opportunities

January 19, 2021

Witnessing to people is more difficult today than it has been in the past. Social distancing, masks and fear of contracting illness has kept us from talking to others.

Normal places to witness like a grocery store, waiting for an appointment or any public place has become almost impossible.

As a Christian, what can we do? Take advantage of every opportunity. Freely give out tracts. Put them in a restroom, in letters that you send out. Use email, phone calls or any form of communication to tell people about Jesus. If you are able to join SOS Events and go to an event to witness.

Be creative. Think of ways you can tell others about the gospel. It is our responsibility to be a witness for the Lord Jesus.

Pray For Your Pastor

January 10, 2021

The coronavirus has caused many problems for Pastors. Each Pastor has many decisions to make that involve not only his family but the people in his congregation.

As the churches begin to open again, it is the Pastors responsibility to keep people safe, give everyone encouragement and most importantly preach the gospel.

Pray for your Pastor today. Tell him or send him a note to be an encouragement to him.

1 Timothy 5:17 – Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

Romans 15:30 – Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in [your] prayers to God for me;
