5 Questions

January 12, 2018

Five questions to ask yourself when studying God’s Word from Pastor Jonathan Watson in Appomattox, VA:

“Simple questions I try to ask myself every time I study God’s Word.”

– Is there a sin I need to confess?

– Is there a promise I can claim?

– Is there an attitude I need to change?

– Is there a command I need to obey?

– Is there an example I can follow?

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Our Words

November 30, 2017

An old saying, “Sticks and Stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” This statement is totally untrue. Our words can encourage, uplift and help someone else, or they can deeply hurt and wound. Once spoken we cannot take them back. God tells us in his word to speak good words.

God’s Gift to You

November 26, 2017

God gave us the greatest gift that will last for all eternity. Presents we give and receive here are only temporary, and maybe will last for a little while. You can receive the gift that will last forever. Ask Jesus to forgive your sins and invite Him to be your Savior. It will be the best gift you will ever get and this Christmas you will truly have the joy you have never known.

“The scriptures are given not to increase our knowledge, but to change our lives.” – Dwight L. Moody

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Rainbows

September 21, 2017

This photo was taken yesterday just before Prayer Meeting in Appomattox, VA. What a beautiful reminder of God’s love and protection for us. His promises are true. He promised never to destroy the earth again with a flood, and though we see storms in local areas, He also promised that He would be with us through the storm and reminds us with a beautiful rainbow.

Genesis 9:16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

Fear

September 16, 2017

Maybe you fear what people think of you… Not having enough money… Public speaking, flying, being far from home, or spiders… Failure or rejection… Losing a loved one… Disease or pain… Death…. Fear is mentioned in the KJV version of the Bible over 500 times. Over 100 of those verses say, Fear Not. Trusting in the Lord is the only way to overcome fear. 

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Eclipse 

August 21, 2017

Once every 18 months a complete total eclipse occurs somewhere in the world. Today in the northern USA this wonderful natural event will take place this afternoon. From Georgia northward schools are closing, highways are crowded with people traveling to get a better position to see this unusual sight. Any beautiful occurrence or wonderful thing in the heavens or on the earth reminds us of one thing that the Bible, God’s Holy Word tells us in the very first verse:

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
