Pray my friends, PRAY!



If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, then we must pray. There is so much to pray for….the lost, the hurting, the sick, marriage, our nation, The Leaders of our country, the world, and you fill in the ________.

James 5:16b 
16b The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

Only God can heal our nation but He demands obedience and worship of himself. Until that happens healing will not happen!

PRAY!

Are You working?



Jesus set the example for us:

John 5:17 
17 But Jesus answered them, “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.”

As long as Jesus was on this earth, He was working. What was He doing? Loving people, meeting the needs of the people, and providing salvation by giving His life for all who will follow Him.

So what are we to be doing? Loving people, meeting the needs of others, and sharing the gospel for folks to get salvation through Jesus.

Let’s get to work to glorify our awesome God!

God’s Got my back!



As loved child of the Lord, I can rest in the fact everyday that God has my back!

Deuteronomy 33:12 
12 Of Benjamin he said:
“The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him,
Who shelters him all the day long;
And he shall dwell between His shoulders.”

Live your life for Jesus and know He is with you all the day long. That is stress relief my friends that nothing els can provide! Thank you Jesus for your great love!

Thank God for listening to us!



I am so thankful for a God that not only listens to us but will act on behalf. Look at this verse:


Psalm 34:4 

4 I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears

I can’t count how many times in my life God has heard me cry out to Him and then He delivers me from a fear. Thinks like sickness, surgery, things my kids are facing, things my wife has to deal with as a teacher, finances, problems in the church, and the list goes on and on. I am so thankful for MY GOD.

He will hear and answer those who follow His Son as Lord and Savior! It is a promise from Himself!

Trust God not self!



Just a little reminder today in where to put all your trust.


Proverbs 28:26 

26 He who trusts in his own heart is a fool,
But whoever walks wisely will be delivered.

Jeremiah 17:9 

9 “The heart is deceitful above all things,
And desperately wicked;
Who can know it?

If we can not trust ourselves we certainly do not want to trust some one else who has the same flaws that we have! So in whom do we trust?

Jeremiah 17:7-8 

7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.

8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear[a] when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.

Trust in the Lord! For He truly is the ONLY ONE in whom we can trust 100% of the time. For is perfect!

Thank God for brothers and sisters in Christ!



I am so thankful for my brothers and sisters that have joined me in the following of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. I do not know what I would do with out them!

2 Thessalonians 1:3 

We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other,

We are to be examples to the world and if we can not love one another then we are not doing what Jesus told us to do!

John 13:34-35 
34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Do you love your brothers and sisters in Christ? For the church to function properly it is not an option. Put differences and pride behind us and love, serve, and pray for one another! The world will see this and want the love of Christ for themselves!
