Public entry Let's Remember
September 01, 2022 @ 01:32:39 pm
1Peter 4:7-8 - Everything in the world is about to be wrapped up, so take nothing for granted. Stay wide-awake in prayer. Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. - Here we are told what we should do as the day approaches when Christ comes back to judge the living and the dead. When He does the dead who knew Him will rise first (1 Thessalonians 4:16 - For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel’s voice, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.) Let's remember these things.

Hebrews 12:18, 22-24 - You have not come to a mountain that can be touched. But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to Jesus the mediator of a new

Joshua 24:15 - As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. - It seems like every time we turn around some charity is on the tv asking for our money and service. At first glance they all seem good. But if we're not helping them because Christ told us to God doesn't recognize it. (John 15:5 - ...apart from me you can do nothing). By the same token if we do then He does. Whenever we are going to help someone we need to do it because Christ told us to. http//

Public entry Let Down?

Psalm 36:5 - Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.- We may have been let down by someone, but God won't, even if we think He did. We can always count on Him to be there no matter what the situation. And even when we feel alone and left out He will be with us. He will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). The Lord will always be with us.

Public entry The List (Reposted from 2010)
April 29, 2022 @ 03:51:25 pm
1 Timothy 1:15 - This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance:Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners" - and I am the worst of them! This Bible verse makes me think of a list that contains the names of everyone (sinful man) who will live, now lives, or has ever lived on the earth, and mine is the very first name on the list, because I should regard myself as the worst sinner of all. We can all think of someone that we think is worse than ourselves and we all like to think that we're not bad people and that if we lead a good life, that will be enough to save us. But the Bible says otherwise. Jesus came to save us, because no matter what we try, we can't save ourselves. This doesn't seem right to us because of our sinful nature that we inherited from Adam and Eve. Jesus' merits and his sacrifice on the cross alone take away all our sin and reconciles us to God. And he does this as a free gift to us, and not because of anything we have done, because we are loved by God. It is difficult for all of us to think of ourselves as the worst sinner, but then we should remember 1 Timothy 1:15 and have faith in Jesus Christ.

Galatians 1:20 - Before God, what I’m writing to you is the truth. - It happens all the time. People read the Bible and then wonder if it could all be true. But the Apostle Paul assures us it is in the book of Galatians when he was writing to those people. We can be sure of everything that God tells us in His word because when He says something He means it. Paul was sure because God called him to be a preacher on the road to Damascus. Let's all be like Paul and be sure.

Public entry A New Beginning (Reposted from 2019)
December 30, 2021 @ 03:52:48 pm
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! - A new year is often viewed as a new beginning, and we can think of ourselves as having a new beginning if we have come to Christ. The Apostle Paul wrote 2 Corinthians about 55 a.d. probably when he was in Macedonia, and in 5:17 notice that Paul says "has come," "has gone" and "is here," he never uses the words "might come," might be gone," or "might be here." It's a done deal for those in Christ because of what he did for them on the cross. He paid for all our sins and Ephesians 2:8-9 says - For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast. nd promises us eternity in Heaven as his free gift to us if we have faith in him. Despite our feelings and what we may have been told, we can't work our way to forgiveness and eternal life, we can only rely on Christ for that. We need to have faith in him in order to be a new creation.

Public entry Merry Christmas (Reposted from 2012)

With the approach of Christmas we will probably be hearing from Christians who like to tell us that it's displeasing to God for us to celebrate Christmas for one reason or another. These people may have good intentions, but they remind me of what the Apostle Paul wrote about some of the Israelites of his day in Romans 10:2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. The Bible makes it clear that we are free to celebrate Christmas (or any other day,) or to refrain from doing so if we choose. Bible teachers call things like this adiaphora, that is things neither commanded nor forbidden in scripture. Paul goes on in Romans 14:5 One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. In the old testament God told the Israelites to celebrate certain events and days, but because of the freedom we now have in our Savior Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.) he tells us that it is up to each of us if we want to celebrate a day or not. There is no question that for many people Christmas has become more of a social holiday than a Christian one, and if we choose to celebrate, we should celebrate God's work in sending his son to be the Savior of the world. If some don't want to celebrate Christmas that's fine, but I for one will choose to because God says I can. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Public entry The One And Only

2 Samuel 7:22 - Wherefore thou art great, O Lord God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears. - Now a days we hear that this, that, and the other thing is God, even in some churches. But if they believe what the Bible says they would know this to be false. Like this scripture says, there is a true God and there is none like Him or beside Him. And as we are told in John 14:6 - Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me -. Notice that Christ doesn't say I'm one of the ways or I think I'm a way, he says I'm the way and that's it. So let's stick with the one and only.

Public entry The In Crowd (Reposted from 2010)
October 04, 2021 @ 04:24:17 pm

Revelation 7:9 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, This Bible verse tells of the people all over the world that have taken God's offer of free salvation that is available to everyone. All their sins have been covered over by the redeeming blood of Christ. It is our nature to be in the "in crowd," to want to be a part of something that is well known by people. But to be known by Jesus Christ who promises he will never turn anyone away who seeks him, and be a part of his crowd is something we all need to do.
