There’s a Mouse in the House

January 9, 2019

A mouse is small and some people even think they are cute, however, if they find a way to get into the house they cause damage. They chew holes in fabric, get into food and can cause disease. They are smart. Set traps and they find a way to get around the trap. The only way to get rid of of this little creature is to find the place they enter, block the hole and then use poison to kill it. Not a pleasant experience, but very necessary to protect your home from damage.

Sin is like this small mouse. Sin finds a way to get into our lives using a small temptation. If left without getting rid of it, sin gets bigger and harder to get rid of. It damages our lives. Relationships are hurt, and our fellowship with God is ruined. The only way to get rid of sin is to block the source by confessing it and then kill it by repentance and asking Jesus to forgive. Then be diligent to not allow that sin to enter into our lives again.

Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

Symbols of Christmas the Poinsettia

December 3, 2018

One of the beautiful symbols of Christmas is the pointsettia plant that we like to decorate with for the holiday. In Florida and other warm climates the plants grow and bloom in December. The shape reminds us of the star that led the wise men to Bethlehem to worship Jesus. The red color the precious blood of Jesus, shed for us, the only we can have our sins forgiven. White plants, a symbol of Jesus’ purity. The poinsettia, a wonderful reminder of the true meaning of Christmas.

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.

Forgiveness

March 26, 2018

Have you ever done something or said something you are truly sorry for? Maybe you hurt someone you love and need to ask forgiveness, but do not want to open that wound again. The Bible clearly states we need to forgive one another. In fact if a brother (another Christian) has hurt you, you are to go to them and ask their forgiveness. Somehow in our human minds that seems unfair, but think about our relationship to God. We have hurt Him many times, before salvation and especially after we have been saved. Disobedience, apathy and many other things too numerous to mention, and yet He in His love for us has forgiven us for ALL our sins. Let us show our love to Him by forgiving one another.

Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses

Christian Blessings

February 28, 2018

It is a blessing to be a Christian in many ways. We know the Lord Jesus and he will never leave us or forsake us. Then we have assurance of Heaven if we have trusted Him as our Savior. Our sins are forgiven. Also, another blessing is fellowship with other Christians. We meet another Christian for the first time and immediately there is a bond of friendship. If you have not accepted Christ, do it today and you can join in the many blessings that are too numerous to tell you here.

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.

How To Love The Unlovable 

August 26, 2017

Do you have a neighbor or a family member that is not very lovable? Sometimes certain people are hard to love. Love is a choice. One thing that helps us to love the unlovable is prayer and forgiveness. Pray for that person, not just once but daily. Not that the Lord will bring something bad on them but that God will give YOU the love of Christ for that person. It works. It is hard to harbor ill feelings toward a person you are praying for. 
Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
