ALWAYS RIGHT

Here’s a question for you today:  Have you ever been around someone who is always right?  What do you think of them?  Be honest now, and examine your heart. Maybe you’re ok with it, maybe you’re a bit resentful, maybe you’re a LOT resentful.  Think about it for a moment. Continue Reading »

CLOSER THAN YOU THINK

Every day that passes brings us closer to the day of the return of Christ Jesus.  It’s safe to say we’re closer today than we were yesterday.  The Bible says in Matthew 24:36-42,
32  Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33  So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36  But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37  But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39  And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40  Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41  Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42  Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. Continue Reading »

BECOME WISE

Ever since man was created, God has been making His wisdom available to them.  In the Garden of Eden, God gave Adam dominion over all the earth, with only ONE “Thou shalt not”, concerning the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  God was setting Adam up for a wonderful life, and warning him to leave that tree alone.  Then God created Eve and brought her to Adam, and she was also given the warning to leave that tree alone.  So what happened?  We all know the story, they disobeyed God and ate of the tree they were told to leave alone. They threw wisdom out the window.  It is written in Proverbs 1:2-7, Continue Reading »

CONSIDER HIM

Today I’d like to start with an encouraging scripture, found in Hebrews 12:1-3,
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,
2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3  For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Continue Reading »

MORE ABOUT THE POWER OF OUR WORDS

The Bible has a lot of teaching about words.  Are we REALLY aware how very much power our words have?  They not only affect how we get along with other people, they also affect our relationship with God, and they most certainly affect every area of our lives and even our health.  And yet most people speak things out without having the slightest sense of the consequences of those words.  Words can incite riots, words can heal, words can build up, words can destroy.  We need to be very careful with our words, they are like bullets in a gun, once fired off, they cannot be called back.

POWER OF OUR WORDS

With our words we can make friends, or make enemies, cause people to listen, or cause them to turn away.  For example, You can walk up to someone standing by their motorcycle and say, That is sure a nice bike, tell me about it, and most likely they will thank you and tell you all about it.  OR, if they’re not too big and you’re brave enough, you can tell them that it’s an ugly piece of junk, but not quite as ugly as they are.  That of course will not likely end well.

READING THE WILL

Whenever there is a death, there is usually a will left behind to ascertain the property left behind will be distributed as the one who died desires.  And of course, everyone who thinks they stand to inherit something will show up for the reading of the will.  Most sit there with high hopes they will leave inheriting something of great worth.  Now suppose the one who died was rich; and I don’t mean just “rich”, but wealthy beyond even their wildest imagination.  Now you’re getting the idea.  The will is about to be read, and all the family members gathered are sitting on the edge of their chairs.

TELL ME THE WHOLE GOSPEL, NOT JUST PART

Let’s say you are a jigsaw puzzle fan, would you want to buy a puzzle with some of the pieces gone?  No?  why not?  Well, you’d want the whole picture, right?  And if some of the pieces of the puzzle are gone, you don’t have the whole picture when you’re done putting it together. But yet, we seem to be satisfied to go to church and hear part of the Gospel week after week.  Sure, I know you can’t preach the whole Gospel in one sermon.  But in the space of weeks, you can.  So then why are so many Christians missing so many pieces of the puzzle?

FREEDOM ISN’T FREE

During the month of July, the United States celebrates FREEDOM.  But before you can celebrate “freedom”, you must first know what it is.  Freedom is defined as: “the power to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint, the absence of subjection, and the state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.” Well, everyone wants to be free, right?  But whose freedoms are being taken away by us exercising OUR freedom?

BEING CONTENT

There is a lot of discontent in the world today.  People are being downright obnoxious to each other, and even CHURCH people are not walking in love toward one another many times.  Now the Apostle Paul had somewhat to say about being content, in Philippians 4:11-13, Continue Reading »
