Anna Saw Jesus

December 28, 2020

Anna, a prophet, was also there in the Temple. She was the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher, and was very old. She was a widow, for her husband had died when they had been married only seven years.

Probably, after her husbands death, Anna would have been encouraged to get married again and have children. Anna, chose to stay single. She chose to serve the Lord. She chose to fast and pray, worshiping the Lord day and night. She told people the news of the Savior that was coming, no matter how long it might be before he came. She knew her purpose and she didn’t let anyone’s opinions or comments keep her from it. Then Anna saw Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus in the temple and knew her purpose had been fulfilled.

Luke 2:36-38 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption i

The Wise Men

December 23, 2020

The account of the wise men who came to worship Jesus is found in Matthew 2:1-12. Tradition says they were three kings who came from the east but the country they came from is not mentioned. They were thought to be 3 because of the number of gifts and kings because of the value of the gold, frankincense and myrrh.

They followed a star which appeared in the heavens until they came to Jerusalem and inquired of Herod where the King was born. Herod wanted to know more about this baby and asked the wise men to bring news of His whereabouts when they found Him. They continued to follow the star, presented their gifts and worshiped Jesus.

Jesus was not in the manger at the time the wise men found him, as is often pictured in Christmas cards and manger scenes, but was now a young child as the Bible states. Probably about 2 years old or a little younger and was in a house with Mary his mother. Then being warned in a dream the wise men went a different way back to their country and did not report to Herod.

There is a saying,”Wise men still seek Him”. Are you seeking Jesus? What He wants is our desire to follow Him as the wise men followed the star and to worship Him and give the gift of ourselves to Him. Are you wise?

Matthew 2:1-2 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him

Worship the Lord!

November 29, 2020

The Lord is worthy of our worship. If you are able to physically go to church, great! If you are unable, take time to worship Him.

Pray for every Pastor and church leader that you know today.

Worship and Pray

November 8, 2020

Four great verses for today. When we live in uncertainty, and not knowing what direction our lives will go, these verses are direction from God’s Word.

If we are able to gather in church today or we worship from home, seek, pray, wait and worship. God is able to give us all we need.

Church

November 1, 2020

Coronavirus has kept many people from attending church. It is very easy to get out of the habit of going to church.

Especially, since churches have been closed.

Going to church is not only important to worship God, but to fellowship with one another, and show love one to another is essential in the Christian life.

Today, if you are able and have no health issues, and your church is open, get out there and go to church. Pray for the ones that cannot attend and also pray for your pastor.

A Perfect Church?

Acts 20:28
Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Do You Have A Clean Heart?

October 4, 2020

We wake up Sunday morning and have to prepare for worship physically but how often do we take the time to spiritually prepare ourselves before we even walk through the doors?

The devil will try to distract us with all kinds of problems. It’s a simple thing to forget in the bustle of getting ready on a Sunday morning, but we need to be thankful we can go to church.

There is a right way to show up on Sunday, but it can only happen if we start preparing our hearts before we even leave our homes.

COVID-19 has kept many of us from church. Let us not let anything or anyone keep us from worship. If you are able to go to church go with a prepared heart.

Church Is Important

September 27, 2020

Just sayin’…Church is important. Gathering together as a group of believers is important. Encouragement from the Word and other believers is important.

I’m not sure where you are today. Maybe you are tired…be renewed at church. Maybe you are depressed…be uplifted at church. Maybe you are discouraged by the church itself…be reconciled at church. Maybe you have lost your way…be directed at church.

Church…Christ died for it. It’s important. Be thankful if you have a choice of church today. Some people do not have a church they have a choice to attend. You do. Be thankful. Go to church. It’s important.” Joy Bowker Crockett

Quote from the wife of a Pastor. She has so much truth and wisdom that her comments are worth reposting. Thank you, Joy.

Ephesians 3:21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

God is Worthy of Our Praise!
