The Greatest Commandment

May 26, 2021

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Matthew 22:37-39

Compassion

February 23, 2021

As Christians we need to have compassion for one another. To our fellow Christians and also to the unsaved.

We will never win the lost by being unkind, rude or unforgiving to them or to our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Others are watching our actions, our speech and even our tone of voice. Courtesy and love to our spouses, children and others is the key to the peace and joy in our homes, workplace and family gatherings.

The unsaved that are watching will then want what we have and we can share the love of Jesus and His forgiveness.

Mistletoe, Symbol of Christmas

December 7, 2020

Mistletoe symbolizes the love we are able to offer to others only because of Christ who “first loves us.”

This year, tell your kids about the true meaning of mistletoe. Be sure to let them know that the corresponding kiss is a symbol of peace, romance and the love of a Heavenly Father who we need to rely on in order to find abundant life.

Election is Over

November 4, 2020

It is time for our Nation to show love one to another. Election in the USA has become a time of fighting and hatred.

As of this morning we still do not have the answer to who is President, but one thing is sure. God is still on the throne, and He tells us to love one another.

It is time to show love to our family, friends and neighbors no matter what their political views or who they voted for.

Oh, How I Love Jesus

October 22, 2020

There is a Name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in my ear,
The sweetest Name on earth.

Refrain:
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!

It tells me of a Savior’s love,
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner’s perfect plea.

It tells me of a Father’s smile
Beaming upon His child;
It cheers me through this little while,
Through desert, waste, and wild.

It tells me what my Father hath
In store for every day,
And though I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way.

It tells of One whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe;
Who in each sorrow bears a part
That none can bear below.

It bids my trembling heart rejoice;
It dries each rising tear;
It tells me, in a “still small voice,”
To trust and never fear.

Jesus, the Name I love so well,
The Name I love to hear:
No saint on earth its worth can tell,
No heart conceive how dear.

This Name shall shed its fragrance still
Along this thorny road,
Shall sweetly smooth the rugged hill
That leads me up to God.

And there with all the blood-bought throng,
From sin and sorrow free,
I’ll sing the new eternal song
Of Jesus’ love for me.

I John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.

Attitude Check

August 10, 2020

This story may or may not be true, but it is something to think about. As Christians we must be careful how we treat others. Sometimes our attitude, can make a huge difference in another’s life. Do we forgive others who make a mistake? Are we friendly, kind and helpful to those we come in contact with? Look around and see if you can be the difference in someone’s life today.

Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Love One Another

June 2, 2020

Do you have someone in your life that you find hard to love? Maybe you don’t agree on an important issue like politics, or this person my have an irritating habit. For whatever reason you find that person hard to love.

This is when you need to rely on the Holy Spirit to show God’s love through you. You can choose to love. Ask God to give you love for that person and then pray for him or her. It is almost impossible not to care for someone you pray for regularly.

Love considers others first.
Love looks for the best.
Love shows respect.
Love seeks unity.
Love isn’t selfish.
Love offers the best.
Love displays patience.

1 Peter 1:22
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

The Wedding

May 26, 2020

On Saturday, there was a beautiful wedding at the Curtis home. Carolyn Curtis’ granddaughter Alex married the love of her life, Chris.

The wedding was planned earlier in the year but because of the coronavirus it had to be postponed. The venue was not available. Plans had to be changed. Waiting was difficult for the bride and groom, but the wedding was lovely.

The guest list had to be limited. Some people who would have liked to be there were not included.

We are reminded that someday, maybe soon, Jesus is coming for His bride.

Most people want to be in Heaven at the Marriage Feast but the guest list is limited to those who have trusted Jesus as their Savior.

That is one wedding you don’t want to miss. Invite Jesus into your heart and life today. Make Him the love of your life.

Revelation 17:7 & 9 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.
