PilateĀ 

April 12, 2017

Pilate tried to prove his innocence by washing his hands, but his sin could not be taken away by washing. The only thing that can wash away sin is the blood of Jesus and trusting in His death, burial and resurrection. Pilate was guilty of helping to send Jesus to the cross, but God used him to fulfill prophecy.

Matthew 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

Well Done

September 12, 2016

This past week, Rick, Grace and Evie (son-in-law and 2 daughters) helped Carolyn Curtis paint the inside of her home. It was a long tedious job and took an entire week before the job was completed but the work and effort was entirely worth it. The transformation of the home after many years is amazing. A job well done.

When we meet Jesus, He will look at the work we have done for Him here on earth. Will His comment be to you, “Well done, thy faithful servant” or “Depart from me I never knew you”? 

Born again Christians have a responsibility to Him to obey and do the work He has called us to do. Unsaved people sometimes do “good works” thinking that is enough to get them into heaven. When I stand before Him, I want to hear, Well Done. How about you?

Matthew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Home

HOME. What a wonderful word. Tom Curtis spent 12 days in the hospital after major surgery and his focus was on getting strong enough to come home. He worked diligently to be able to be released to come home. Then the joyful moment when he stepped in the door. He was able to eat what he wanted, sleep without being interrupted and just relax. What a blessing from the Lord. (He won 2 people to the Lord in the hospital as well as prayed with several nurses and caregivers)

Our focus as Christians should be that we are working diligently to get ready to go to our eternal home, Heaven. Our works do not save us but we want to be able to have the Savior meet us and say well done. That will be a joyful moment when we step into Heaven and all the trials of this earth will be gone and only blessing will be there.

Matthew 25:21    His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
