Discouraged?

May 22, 2019

Billy Graham said, “Discouragement is the opposite of faith.” It is Satan’s device to thwart the work of God in our lives. Discouragement blinds our eyes to the mercy of God and makes us perceive only the unfavorable circumstances. You will never met a person who spent time in daily prayer, in the study of the Word of God, and who was strong in the faith who was ever discouraged for very long.

Going Home

May 13, 2019

Going home. Vacation over. Time to go home. Sadness because it is over, but joy at the thought of seeing loved ones and getting to our comfortable home. The plane will get us there in just a few hours and there may be delays. Reminds me of our life. We live and then it is time to go “home” to Heaven. Looking back we don’t want to leave but looking forward to seeing Jesus and the ones we love who have gone on before. Jesus will usher us in in immediately after our last breath.

1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Preparing for a Trip

April 23, 2019

When going on a trip, business or pleasure, we prepare by making sure we pack everything we may need. Proper clothing, toiletries and identification. We are looking forward to the trip with great anticipation.

We are preparing for the greatest trip we will ever take, the journey to Heaven. The preparation should be the most important thing on our minds. The first thing is salvation. No one enters Heaven without it. Then, daily Bible reading and prayer. A pure lifestyle is important, also. Are you ready for this trip?

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

The Tomb is Sealed

April 20, 2019

Jesus is dead. The tomb is sealed. The disciples are in shock and grief. Is there no hope?

The days between the crucifixion and resurrection must have been really hard for the followers of Jesus. The One they had put their trust in, the One who was going to be King. Confused, sorrowful and disappointed they probably did nothing. Some waited together and others waited alone. People react differently when someone they love dies.

Today there are many people who have the same reaction to Jesus. Some doubt. Some do not believe in Him. Others reject Him. They do not realize what He can do for them.

Today is the day before Resurrection Sunday. Are you like these people or are you excited about tomorrow? The tomb did not stay sealed. The stone rolled away and JESUS arose. Let us celebrate the glorious resurrection not only tomorrow but everyday. JESUS lives…

Mark 16:6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

Denial of Peter

April 17, 2019

What do you think of when you think of Simon Peter? Some of us think of him as he denied Jesus 3 times.

People could tell that he had been with Jesus, but he repeatedly said that he did not know Jesus. When the rooster crowed he remembered what Jesus had told him. “Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.”

He went out and wept bitterly.

Do we deny Jesus? No, we think not, but someone is sitting beside us while we wait for an appointment. Did we witness to them? A person comes up and asked us for money or directions. We help them but did we tell them about Jesus? We go on a “mission trip”, build a house or feed the poor, but we do not try to win them to Christ.

Do we deny Jesus? You decide. Peter became a great witness and soul winner after Jesus forgave him. Let us follow Peter and feed people spiritually with the gospel.

John 21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Palm Sunday

April 14, 2019

Is Jesus you King? Not only on Palm Sunday but always. A few days later these very people who honored Him with Palm branches, cried out crucify Him!

The Best Diet

April 12, 2019

Christian fellowship often centers around food. Food is served at all kinds of events. In America we are blessed to have abundance and variety of whatever we choose to eat.

With that great blessing also comes responsibility to eat correctly. Diet plans are popular and also are available everywhere we look. We could and should be satisfied to have just a small taste of food that would not be good for our health. It is the temptation to over indulge because something looks good and tastes good, then we continue to eat it knowing it is not good for us. But there is something we can have that is extremely good for us and the more we indulge the better we are.

The Bible tells us to taste and see in Psalms. We can be blessed if we follow that advice. Trusting in The Lord Jesus is the best diet. Reading His Word daily, praying  and following Him will bring blessings that no physical diet can ever bring in our lives.

Psalms 34:8 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

A Must See Movie for Christians

April 2, 2019

This movie “Unplanned” should be seen by every Christian and especially young people. Not a movie for children. Take a tissue and be prepared for shocking scenes that will break your heart. This is not an entertaining movie, but one that will make you want to do something for the unborn. It is a story of God’s forgiveness.

It probably will not be in theaters long so go now.

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
