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.

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.

Old Fashioned Sunday

Sunday, a day to worship, spend with family and fellowship. Take time today to be a little “old Fashioned” and don’t go shopping or run around doing errands. Spend time with family and enjoy one another after church today.

Our Plans

March 20, 2019

Sometimes we make plans that seem very important to us at the time. Then something comes up, and those plans change. Maybe there’s an accident, a friend needs our help, or we cannot do it because we get sick. We are extremely disappointed and wonder, WHY?

God has allowed our plans to change. Remember, God loves us and He knows why. He may reveal the answer, but often He does not. That is when we need to trust Him all the more. He can turn our plans into His plan. The whole direction of our life can turn around in the change of just one of our plans. Are we trusting Him with our disappointments?

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Pray for One Another

March 19, 2019

Today, there are so many people hurting. Little children with injuries and illness, death of loved ones, pain, cancer, financial difficulties and other things that our Christian brothers and sisters ask us to pray for. God answers prayer. Remember to lift your hurting loved ones up to the Lord in prayer. If you can be a help in other ways that is also a blessing. Sometimes a hug or an offer to help is what they need to keep on going. Let us help to bear one another’s burdens.
