Fruit of the Spirit, Joy

May 17, 2022

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Galatians 5:22

In God’s Word we are told that we can have joy in every situation. The joy of the Lord is my strength. when we have trusted in Jesus as our Savior, we have the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. He gives us joy.

Joy is listed as the second fruit of the spirit. If you are lacking joy, feel lonely, fearful or depressed, ask Jesus to help you return to the joy you can have by trusting in Him.

Where Is Your Treasure?

May 11, 2022

You may have a beautiful home or you may be living in a place of poverty. You may not have a home at all and have no earthly possessions. Whatever you have or wherever you live will not matter when you get to Heaven.

How do we lay up treasures in Heaven? We must be sure we are going there by trusting in Jesus for forgiveness of sin.

Obedience to God’s Word. Loving God with all your heart and loving one another.

Telling others about salvation. There is a crown for soul winners. All our treasure in Heaven we can lay at Jesus feet. He is the One who is worthy of all our love, devotion and treasure.

It’s All About Jesus!

April 29, 2022

Jesus! In God’s Word, the Bible, Jesus has many names. He is the beginning and the end.

If we don’t know anything else, the one thing we must know and believe to have eternal life is that Jesus died on the cross, He was buried and 3 days later He rose from the dead.

Once we know and accept Him all the other things that He is will become clear.

Jesus is our rock, our advocate, our redeemer and friend. Look at some of Hiss names in the image above and Praise Him for all He has done.

1 Corinthians 6:11 – And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Homesick For Heaven

April 25, 2022

Have you ever been away from your home and felt homesick?

As Christians we should be longing for our permanent home which is Heaven. The cares of this life overwhelm us at times.

Even in good times, like getting married or having a new baby, we should still have a desire to look to our heavenly home, Heaven.

Think about the joy of seeing our Savior, Jesus! Reunion with loved ones who have gone on before us. Not to mention the wonderful plans Jesus has for us that we cannot even imagine.

Homesick for Heaven!

Jesus is Lord!

He Has Risen!!

April 17, 2022

Low in the grave He lay—
Jesus my Savior!
Waiting the coming day—
Jesus my Lord!
Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!

2
Vainly they watch His bed—
Jesus, my Savior!
Vainly they seal the dead—
Jesus my Lord!
3
Death cannot keep his prey—
Jesus, my Savior!
He tore the bars away—
Jesus my Lord!

This hymn says it all! Jesus arose! He is not dead! He is my Savior!

The Tomb Was Sealed

April 16, 2022

Jesus is dead. The tomb is sealed. The disciples are in shock and grief. Is there no hope?

The days between the crucifixion and resurrection must have been really hard for the followers of Jesus. The One they had put their trust in, the One who was going to be King. Confused, sorrowful and disappointed they probably did nothing. Some waited together and others waited alone. People react differently when someone they love dies.

Today there are many people who have the same reaction to Jesus. Some doubt. Some do not believe in Him. Others reject Him. They do not realize what He can do for them.

Today is the day before Resurrection Sunday. Are you like these people or are you excited about tomorrow? The tomb did not stay sealed. The stone rolled away and JESUS arose. Let us celebrate the glorious resurrection not only tomorrow but everyday. JESUS lives…

Mark 16:6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

Jesus Death on the Cross

April 15, 2022

John 19:17 & 18 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Jesus, Praying in the Garden

April 14, 2022

Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.

And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

Matthew 26: 36-41

Don’t Be Distracted

April 12, 2022

It is so easy to get distracted by things that are beyond our control. If our attention is on the news, we can become fearful.

Everywhere we look there is something that can cause us to take our eyes off Jesus and live in fear and uncertainty, but we have promises in God’s Word that He is with us, He has everything in control and He is with us through any situation.

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10
