Billy Graham Quote

February 23, 2018

“The moment we take our last breath on earth, we take our first in heaven.”

Billy Graham went home to meet his Savior this week and he will be missed. He was instrumental in thousands of people coming to the Lord.

2 Corinthians 5:8

We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.


Lost and Found

December 29, 2017

Have you ever lost something special to you and frantically searched for it until it was found? Maybe your car keys and you cannot go anywhere or your child’s favorite toy and he will not go to sleep without it. Jesus spoke many times in parables about things that were lost and found. He was getting us to understand that until we accept Him as our Savior we are lost and have no hope of Heaven. Jesus came to find you and me and payed the price with His own life on the cross and rose again that we might be saved. Are you lost or found?

Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Gabriel, Angel Sent From God

December 16, 2017

Luke 1:19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

Luke 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

Only two angels are mentioned by name in the New Testament. Gabriel and Michael. Gabriel was an archangel who was a messenger sent by God to deliver news to Zacariah and then later to Mary. Gabriel is also mentioned in the book of Daniel in the Old Testament. Angels had an important role in the birth of the Lord Jesus. Their presence brought fear into the hearts of the people they appeared to according to scripture.

We tend to forget that people like Zacariah, Mary and Joseph were just ordinary people that God used in extraordinary circumstances. If Gabriel appeared to us today we too would be afraid. As Christians we can look forward to the time when we will see angels in Heaven. What a wonderful future we have and there will be no fear, only wonder and beauty as we behold Heaven and meet Jesus face to face.

People Watching

December 5, 2017

Do you like to watch people. Some are tall, others short, some thin others heavy. We see the mothers with small children to the elderly which have a hard time getting around. People of all colors, from the very fair skin to the darkest golden brown. Some dress in expensive clothing while others are tattered, and some wear hardly any clothes at all. What a variety of people on the earth and God gave life to them all. However, that He gave them life at birth does not mean they will live with Him in Heaven for all eternity. To get to Heaven no matter what their status on earth they (and you) must be born again.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Home Sweet Home

August 9, 2017

Have you ever been away from home for awhile. Vacation, business trip or travel. Then it is time to go “home”. What great anticipation. You may live in a mansion or a small cottage, but whatever the property it is still home. As Christians we should have the same love and anticipation for our heavenly home, Heaven. Waiting for us there is Jesus, our loved ones who have gone on before us, and wonders we cannot even imagine. Jesus said:

John 14:2-3 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Jesus is the SON

June 9, 2017

“The closer you are to the Son, the less likely you are to get burned.” Posted on a church sign.

Matthew 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.


May 19, 2017

May through June is the time of year for graduations. Small children graduate from kindergarten, looking forward to growing up and learning new things. High school students graduate looking forward to college or career. College graduates look forward to adult life and future success. It is a time for celebration. We as Christians, no matter what our age look forward to even a greater graduation. The time when we go to Heaven. If it be through death or Jesus comes and we are caught up in the rapture. We can all look forward to our “graduation day”.

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.

Street of Gold

May 2, 2017

Looking for gold? Heaven’s streets are paved with it.

Revelation 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

Joy Unspeakable 

February 25, 2017

Are you planning a family reunion in the near future? What a wonderful time it is when families get together after a long separation. Sharing memories, seeing how the children have grown, sharing stories of the loved ones that have passed away. The reunion is something we look forward to. But there is an even greater reunion in a Christian’s future. That is when we get to Heaven. The first person we will want to see is Jesus. Then to be with loved ones again will be joy unspeakable. 

1 Peter 1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

Home Sweet Home

February 15, 2017

Coming home after a long trip is one of the biggest blessings. Going to another Country is wonderful. The sights, sounds,smells and people are different. As enjoyable as it is, it is not “home”. When the journey is almost over and home is getting close, your heart beats a little faster, your eyes take in the familiar surroundings and what a relief. You are finally home.

That is how we as Christians should look toward Heaven. This world is not our home, we are just passing through. Jesus has gone ahead to prepare a wonderful place for us. Our final “home”. Wherever you are in life today, joy or heartache, remember we are passing through and our final home is being prepared. What joy to look forward to our Home in Heaven.

John 14:2-3 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
