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.

Be Thankful for Bad Things

November 20, 2017

Can we be thankful for the bad things in life? Maybe we don’t feel thankful, but God tells us to be thankful in all things. Tell Him you are thankful not because of feelings but because of obedience. Eventually, after a period of time you will be able to thank Him in your heart and remember the precious memories of the good things God has given you. (This is my experience after the death of 2 beloved sons)

1 Thessalonians 5:18

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Christian Life

October 11, 2017

How do you keep going for the Lord after many years? This question was asked Carolyn Curtis (co-founder of SOS Events Ministry) at a Missions Conference recently. Her answer, “Guidance of the Holy Spirit, daily Bible reading and prayer and Godly habits,” we cannot be consistent in the Christian life without all three. 

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 

Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

Trying to Loose Weight?

August 30, 2017

Many of us are trying to loose weight. We diet, exercise, and try to stay away from food that will keep us from our goal. The Bible says we have weight that we need to get rid of and it is called sin. We need to decide to loose the “weight” of sin in our lives. Jesus said He is the bread of life. We must first trust Him to take away our sin. Then a good exercise is to read the Bible and pray everyday. Then put away anything that will keep sin in our lives. It may be wrong friends, or a bad habit, or going to places where we are tempted to pick up our sin again. Let us loose the weight we need to both physical and spiritual.

John 6:48  I am that bread of life. Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

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.

Billy Graham Quote

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.
