WHY FORGIVE?

Each and every day we are given an opportunity to be offended. And what we do with that opportunity defines who we are. Some people get offended at every little thing. Of course, it’s always the other person’s fault for causing the offense. But what if I told you it was YOUR fault? Would you be offended?

GOD’S TIMING

More times than I can count, I’ve been told that no matter what, God is in charge. And that is true, “up to a point”. But you see, it’s like a person in a rented house; the landlord may own the home and all that, but by my firsthand experience, I’ve seen renters trash a home. Now tell me, was that the landlord’s will that his house was trashed? NO! So the landlord’s will obviously was not done.

WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE?

Our time on this earth is drawing to a close, either by the return of Christ Jesus, or by our own “expiration date”, whichever comes first. And so, knowing that, our priority should be on doing that which is most important FIRST, then doing those things less important. So, what’s YOUR first priority? I’d like to help you pinpoint your priorities in this New Year, so you can get it started right.  And if you find your first priority isn’t what you thought it was, now is the right time to fix that.

BE MADE WHOLE NOW

As we close out another year, I want to ask you, Did you live out this year in the perfect will of God? And if not, what are you going to do about it? Obviously the best answer would be, “I’ll repent and get things right with God.” Continue Reading »

THE WEAPON OF FORGIVENESS

Unless you’ve lived alone in a cave all your life, you’ve probably had opportunity to have your feelings hurt many times over. And one by one, these offences stick to you like scales on a fish, until you’re covered with them, and your heart says, “Nobody will ever hurt me again.” But that’s a lie, because offences come on a daily basis, and some people are “offence magnets”. They just seem to take everything and everyone wrong, until their “armor” is so thick, their heart can no longer be touched. And that’s not what God wants for us.

WASTE NOT, WANT NOT

“Waste not, want not” is an old proverb first recorded in 1772, and a statement similar to that was recorded earlier in the 1500’s, which is as useful today as it was back then. When we make good use of what we already have available, it keeps us from having lack in that area.

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

This is the season when people ask one another, What do you want for Christmas? But what about the REST of the year? What do you want? I can think of several things I’d like to have; peace on earth, kindness from each of us, nobody hungry or homeless, to name a few. But let’s be realistic: as a default condition, mankind’s heart is evil, and that’s why the world is in the mess it’s in. Can we do anything about it? Yes, and no. On our own, very little, but with Christ Jesus, we can be thoroughly changed from the inside out. EVERY SINGLE DAY!

A BIRD IN HAND

There’s an old saying, ‘A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”, which I’ve heard from childhood. And yes, I was young once, believe it or not. Anyway, that saying popped up in my mind a while ago, so that’s what I’ll write about today.

BE THANKFUL

As you know, I normally publish my newsletter on Friday, but being this is Thanksgiving, it seemed appropriate to do it today, seeing the title is “BE THANKFUL”. Continue Reading »

GOD IS WAITING

Many people tell me they are “waiting on God”. So they won’t do a thing until they get a nudge from God. Therefore, they never do anything for God because that nudge never comes. And that’s because God is waiting on them to get about doing the work of the Kingdom of God. With all the talk about the “rapture”, many Christians have their mind on getting raptured out of here so they don’t have to go through the tribulation. But how does that line up with the Word of God?
