Judas Iscariot

April 9, 2020

He walked with Jesus. He saw the miracles. He was trusted enough to handle the money. Others did not see him as evil. JUDAS. A name that even today we think of betrayal. Greed, for 30 pieces of silver he was willing to betray the ONE who loved him.

We wonder how he could do such a horrible thing and yet, do we betray Jesus with our attitude, our indifference or our sin? When Jesus told the disciples that one would betray Him, each one asked, “Is it I?”

Let us ask ourselves, do I betray my Savior, Jesus, in any way? If so let us ask His forgiveness had love Him as He loved us.

Matthew 26:25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.

Trusting Jesus In The Storm

April 4, 2020

And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
Mark 4:35-41

The Coronavirus feels like a great storm to many. Jesus is saying to us, “Peace be still.” Turn to Him to calm your fearful heart.

Today’s Bible verse speaks for itself. God has given us peace if we trust in Him through our Lord, Jesus.

Walt Whitman Quote

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.
Walt Whitman

There is a beautiful song…Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full into His wonderful face and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

In these troubled times, we need to look to Jesus.

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

Focus on God’s Healing

Many people are being healed of the Coronavirus. Our news media is so focused on the amount of cases and deaths that we are not hearing about the people that have been healed.

Our Unchanging Savior

March 16, 2020

School closed, store shelves empty of certain products, visiting hospitals and assisted living facilities prohibited and sporting events cancelled.

When the world as we know it seems to have changed overnight because of the coronavirus, we have one thing that never changes That is The Lord Jesus. God Can Not Change. His love and care for us is constant. His promises are true. There are hundreds of verses in the Bible, God’s Word, that tells us not to fear, trust in Him, be anxious for nothing, He loves us and cares for us.

Today, if you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, take all your cares and concerns to Him.

If you do not know Him personally, now is the time to put your faith in Him and ask Him to forgive your sins, believe Jesus died on the cross, was buried and 3 days later He arose. Then call on Him and invite Him to be your Savior.

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
1 Peter 5:7

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8

Are You Good Enough To Go To Heaven?

March 7, 2020

The Bible says “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” Romans 5:12

None of us are good enough to go to Heaven, but God loves us and sent His Son, Jesus, to die on a cross, to be buried and on the 3rd day arose from the dead. His sacrifice is the only way we can go to Heaven.

We must admit we have sinned.

Believe Jesus died, was buried and rose again.

Call on Jesus to forgive our sins, come into our hearts and invite Him to be our Savior.

If you haven’t done that, don’t wait. Do it now.
