    The Hope of a New Year, Every Day

    The Hope of a New Year, Every Day

    We don’t have to wait for New Year’s day to have the hope of starting over again. We can wake each new day to a fresh start with our God, who eagerly desires to forgive us and grant us peace in our mind and heart. There is forgiveness in Jesus name. He died to pay for all the mistakes that we have made in our life. He offers relief from the sorrow, removal of the guilt, and hope for a better tomorrow.

    Whatever your present situation, the Lord understands how you feel. He is well aware of what has happened to you during your life. He knows about every terrible thing that we have said and done, and yet He still loves us so deeply. He feels compassion for us, because He knows the frailty of our human frame. He knows about the cruel and hurtful things that people have said and done to you. He offers you healing and understanding. All that we must do is come to Him right now and lay all our burdens on Him. Jesus can lift your sorrow, give you hope, and satisfy the longing of your heart

    On Being a Christian

    On Being a Christian

    The only way that people in the world can know that we are a true follower of Jesus Christ, is the love that we display openly for each other. If we publicly ridicule, criticize and rebuke each other, the message that the world receives is that being a follower of Jesus is going to subject us to the same kind of betrayal, unfaithfulness and hatred that people in the world experience every day.

    Why would anyone want to become a follower of Jesus, if those followers are exactly like the people in the world?

    The primary characteristic that we should be developing in ourselves is Love. Love towards other believers, because they also love Jesus. We overlook each other’s failures, inadequacies and mistakes. When we see or hear another believer in Jesus write or teach something to try and encourage other believers, our only response publicly should be full of grace, and love.

    When Friends Depart, You Stay

    When Friends Depart, You Stay

    In life people will misunderstand you, abandon you, for reasons unknown to you. Your heart will be broken and you will feel hopeless. You will make mistakes, and never be able to correct them and have a chance to explain all that was in your heart. If you can keep your heart open and continue to love these who leave you, someday, some of them will come back into your life again and you will pick back up, right where you left off. People may never know the truth of what really happened, but you don’t even have to tell them, or bring up the past again. It is enough that you have your friends once more, and that for the rest of your life, and even into heaven, you can love each other and worship at the feet of Jesus forever…

    Is the Father Greater than the Son?

    Is the Father Greater than the Son?

    John 14:28 You have heard Me say to you, “I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.

    For those who believe that Jesus is both Lord and Savior of their life, we understand that Jesus is God. We know that the Bible reveals that there is “One God”, who has revealed Himself in three persons. The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. All three are God.

    Why then does Jesus say “My Father is greater than I?”

    It is important to understand that when Jesus came to earth as the Messiah and Savior of the world, He was doing so as a servant. In order for Jesus as the Eternal God, and the One who spoke the universe into existence, it was necessary that He humble Himself and take the position of a servant, in order to secure our salvation. The old testament speaks of the fact that the Messiah would come as a humble servant of God to do His will.

    Bringing The Dead Back To Life

    Bringing The Dead Back To Life

    Romans 4:17 …God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did…

    There are those things in our life that seem sometimes, as if they are dead. Relationships, opportunities, feelings, things we live with in regret of, because we didn’t do what we should have done.

    The God that we serve is in the business of resurrecting things that have died.

    We might think that it is too late for us. Those missed opportunities are gone and we feel like we will not be able to change anything now that the time has passed. If you have felt that way, you would not be alone. All of us live with regrets of the past. The important point of this verse in Romans 4:17 is that we should never count anything as “too late” or “dead”.

    The Pharisee and the Prostitute

    The Pharisee and the Prostitute

    Luke 7:36-40 Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil. Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke to himself, saying, “This Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching Him, for she is a sinner.” And Jesus answered and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.”

    In this story, Simon the Pharisee invites Jesus to have dinner with him in his home. While there, a woman enters the house of Simon, a woman who is described as “a sinner” comes and falls at the feet of Jesus. Apparently she was a prostitute who had heard Jesus speak to the crowds. Not caring what anyone thought, nor how foolish she might be seen, she burst into the house of Simon and falls at Jesus feet in deep repentance and worship of Jesus.

    Cult Church Donations Rise, Christian Church Donations Decrease

    As perhaps a marked increase in the prophetic application of scripture to the days we live in, there is a downward trend in the giving of those who claim to have a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ. At the same time, there has been a significant increase in giving by those who claim membership in churches considered as “cult” type religions such as the “Latter Day Saints”, or the Mormon’s, and the Church of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

    Perfect Love Casts Out Fear

    Perfect Love Casts Out Fear

    1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

    I have never met a person who does not experience fear. It seems that this often debilitating flaw in our nature is one that can prevent us from experiencing the fullness of life that the Lord has intended for us.

    When we are afraid, we hesitate. When we are in fear, moving forward into a new area that God is leading, becomes difficult. When we are deeply concerned about what might happen to us, fear can even slow our ability to trust the Lord and do what He has asked us to do.

    The book of 1 John is filled with encouragement and instruction for those who know Jesus. John writes, that fear for a Christian is to not understand the Love of God. If we truly comprehend how great, how wide, and how deep the love of God is for those who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ, we would not often be afraid of anything.

    Do All Things Without Grumbling and Complaining

    Do All Things Without Grumbling and Complaining

    Numbers 11:1 Now when the people complained, it displeased the LORD; for the LORD heard it, and His anger was aroused. So the fire of the LORD burned among them, and consumed some in the outskirts of the camp.

    To live our lives for the Lord without complaining is nearly impossible. Well, at least it is for myself. Perhaps you complain less than I do. I find that as soon as I start each morning, I can find almost anything to grumble and complain about.

    If I get up at dawn when it is quiet, so that I can spend a few minutes alone in the peace of the new morning, very soon afterwards any noise that appears near me, drives me into irritability. If I set off into my new day and have some expectation for how things are going to go, if anyone or anything should dare change my plans, grumpy, grumpy, grumpy.

    The Futility of Judging Others

    The Futility of Judging Others

    It is a fact that all of us pass judgment on other people a hundred times a day.

    While we are standing in line, we are judging the language, mannerisms, clothing and even the techno gadgets of the people near us. Their language offends us, their clothing is not what we would consider stylish. The smart phone they have is not as good as the one we own. C’mon you know it’s true. We all pass judgment on just about everyone we meet.

    Have you ever gone an entire day without judging someone for something?

    Then there are those to whom we see their life style, and we disapprove and often condemn them in our heart and minds for what we see and hear. We may not even know them at all, but we think that we have their life all figured out.

    Passing judgment is a part of the fallen nature of human beings.

    Why does the Bible warn us about passing such judgments on other people?

    The Blessedness of Brokenness

    The Blessedness of Brokenness

    To live our lives in relative peace with the absence of trouble, is the hope of many. To avoid pain, sickness, disappointments, and failures would make life fuller and richer. Or so we think.

    Those who have lived four or five decades on the earth will tell you that first of all, it is impossible to live without experiencing all of these things. Second, the presence of life’s difficulties, makes for a fuller, richer, more rewarding life.

    It is coming, to, and going through the troubles of life that we learn to most. About ourselves, those we are closest to, and the simple joy that is felt when a new lesson of life is being learned.

    A Sure Course For Those Who Are Sons and Daughters

    A Sure Course For Those Who Are Sons and Daughters

    Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

    Daily we make a multitude of decisions that effect not only the present day, but the course we will take for the rest of our life. How can a person make decisions that are right and have good results? The Bible promises that those who are the sons and daughters of the Lord will have the Spirit of God to guide and direct their every step.

    Even when we think that a recent decision may have not been the correct one, the Spirit of our God transforms our missteps into blessing for us and those around us. To simply abide in Jesus and trust him with all the cares of this life, relying on the Sprit for every decision, every falter, all things, at all times.

    Simply by prayer that flows from us a naturally as our breath, in constant conversation and communication with the Lord throughout the day. The Spirit delights in moving us into those places where God’s plan unfolds before us.

    When we do not see changes in our schedule, or an interruption by a person uninvited as annoyances and inconveniences, but as appointments made by our Father for us to discover, our days take on new and amazing adventures. Long before any one us breathed our first breath on this earth, the Lord planned a wonderful life for each one of us, full of constant changes and challenges. Each one meant to cause us to grow and learn more of his power and care in our life as His Spirit leads us.

    Daily Walk: To Have the Ear of God

    Daily Walk: To Have the Ear of God

    Psalms 41:1-3 Blessed is he who considers the poor; The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth; You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies. The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed.

    To have the ear of God and experience His moving in, and upon your life whenever you have a need. What is is that moves God’s heart and brings Him to our aid? David wrote in Psalm 41 that when we take notice of and consider the poor that are amongst us, the heart of God is stirred to bless our life.

    Daily Walk: The Correct Time to Make Decisions

    Daily Walk: The Correct Time to Make Decisions

    Psalms 90:12 So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.

    There is a character trait that all human beings have, probably because of the fall, that we have terrible timing when it comes to making decisions, when those decisions are made in the pinnacle of emotion.

    The husband who decides to end his marriage while he and his wife are in the middle of an argument.

    The young lady who becomes intimate with her boyfriend as she is overwhelmed by emotion.

    The decision to move to a new location because of a hurt or disappointment.

    The purchase of something that we just have to have.

    All these decisions are often regretted later on. We later realize that the only reason that we made these decisions was that we were overcome by our emotions, in despair over a hurt, or were angry and not in control of that anger.

    Daily Walk: The Greater Law of Mercy

    Daily Walk: The Greater Law of Mercy

    Matthew 12:7 “But if you had known what this means, “I desire mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless.”

    What would you say to a person who had married in good faith, trusting in the commitment of another person to love, honor, and cherish “until death do us part”, but later becomes the victim of constant and unrepentant abuse?

    Would you apply the law of divorce to this person and tell them that they must remain in the marriage relationship at all costs because this is the law of God? Was it the intention of God’s law to inflict suffering and torture on an individual who is trapped in a never-ending cycle of violence and anger?

    Or is there a time and a place for mercy to be exercised?

    Daily Walk: No More Condemnation

    Daily Walk: No More Condemnation

    We live in a world of condemnation. Even when we do our best to say and do right things we are often misunderstood and judged incorrectly. It hurts when people misunderstand us and say things about us that are not true. It hurts even more when those who accuse us are our close family and friends.

    Joshua was the high priest of those returning to Israel from the exile of seventy years. In Zechariah chapter 1 we see a scene that is set in heaven. Satan is accusing Joshua before the Lord. His accusations are always the same: we are unrighteous, sinful beings who have no right to the presence of God. Satan’s accusations would be true except for one very important fact. Jesus died for us and has cleansed us of all sin and wrongdoing by His precious Blood.

    Daily Walk: Everything From Nothing

    Daily Walk: Everything From Nothing

    Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

    In this first verse of the Bible we find a treasure chest of eternal truth. Before a single planet began it’s rotation and gave the presence of time, the Lord existed.

    Dwelling in the infinity of existence, there was no passage or duration of an observable day. God simply existed. He has Himself no first cause. We often wonder how it is that God who made all things could himself have no beginning. In our limited human mind, we cannot conceive of a being who had no beginning.

    Daily Walk: Not By Might, By His Spirit

    Zechariah 4:6 ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts.

    Zerubbabel was up against unimaginable opposition and difficulty in trying to rebuild the temple at Jerusalem. He was discouraged and dismayed at all that was before him.

    The Word of the Lord came to Zerubbabel to encourage him that it would not be by his own might, nor by the power (authority of others), but instead by the all powerful Spirit of the living God, that the temple would be built.
