Life and Death

August 10, 2017

In the way of righteousness is life; and in the path thereof there is no death.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Sin

August 2, 2017

Sin may be just a 3 letter word but if you carry it around long enough it will cause death. 

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Priorities 

July 28, 2017

August has not even arrived and summer is almost over for some people. School starts soon for the southern states. Some as early as next week. Life seems to move to fast with work, home and responsibilities. In your busy life make sure you take time, first for God, then for family and if priorities are straight every thing else will fall into place.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Psalms 51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

Life Decisions 

May 21, 2017

Are you at a crossroad in your life? Having to choose what to do. College or Militaty? House or Apartment? Ministry or Secular Job? Stay Single or Marry? Current Job or New Job? There are so many decisions in life that set the coarse for the rest of your life. One wrong decision and disaster. A right one and joy and prosperity. The first right decision is to accept Jesus as your Savior. The second one is to follow Him and let Him direct your path. Read the Bible, pray and seek Godly council.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Jesus Died For Us

Salt and Light

February 12, 2017

Matthew 5 is about being distinct in character. How a Christian is to be clearly different from this world, noticeably different in a good way. This particular teaching was coming from the mouth of Jesus Himself. He not only said how we are to be distinct, but when we are, we are blessed with a true happiness & peace that only God gives. Plus He tells what we would obtain for being distinct. We are called to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Christ urges us to be a good example. I challenge you to read Matthew chapter 5 and be determined to be distinct in this world and watch for your blessings.

Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV) Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Love One Another

John 13:35 (KJV) By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

My Sheep Hear My Voice

February 9, 2017

“My sheep hear my voice” is what the scripture says, not “my sheep can hear My voice” or “My sheep should hear My voice” but that they do hear His voice. Note also that God directs His voice to His sheep. He doesn’t say “My intelligent follower”, or “the popular or kind”. No, He says, “My sheep”. The sheep knows the sound, the inflection, of its shepherd’s voice. So we are to know the voice of God in our life as a Christian. How does God speak to us, His sheep? Clearly He speaks through His Word. Read it, study it, and listen to it.

John 10:3b (KJV) “…the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them… “

John 10:14 (KJV) “I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.”

Make It Personal

February 7, 2017

Colossians 3:17 says, “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.”

In life, we need the help of Christ to stay focused, so make His Word personal. Say the verse above, Colossians 3:17 by using your name and personal pronouns. An example is below.

Whatever (your name) does in word or in deed, let me do all in the name of Jesus and give thanks to God my Father through Jesus.
