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.

Graduation

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.

Citizenship 

November 5, 2016

The forefathers of the USA gave us many freedoms when they wrote and approved the Constitution, but the greatest freedom of all is freedom from sin provided by Jesus when he shed His blood to pay for our sins. It is a great blessing to be a citizen the USA by being born in the Country or to apply for citizenship. To become a citizen of Heaven we must be born again.

John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Joy in Heaven

October 14, 2016

Sometimes we are disappointed when only one or two people get saved at an event. Wednesday at the flea market in Plant City, FL there were two decisions. The weather was beautiful and we were praying for that event. Then we remember this wonderful Bible verse:

Well Done

September 12, 2016

This past week, Rick, Grace and Evie (son-in-law and 2 daughters) helped Carolyn Curtis paint the inside of her home. It was a long tedious job and took an entire week before the job was completed but the work and effort was entirely worth it. The transformation of the home after many years is amazing. A job well done.

When we meet Jesus, He will look at the work we have done for Him here on earth. Will His comment be to you, “Well done, thy faithful servant” or “Depart from me I never knew you”? 

Born again Christians have a responsibility to Him to obey and do the work He has called us to do. Unsaved people sometimes do “good works” thinking that is enough to get them into heaven. When I stand before Him, I want to hear, Well Done. How about you?

Matthew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

2 Saved at Flea Market

August 25, 2016

Isaac, age 20, and a young lady, age 23, called on the Lord yesterday at the Plant city flea market! God is truly amazing!

Luke 15:10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
