Bible

We go to the Word of God for comfort, and when we do, the words pierce like a surgeon’s scalpel, both cutting and healing. The Word of God cuts to the very place where thoughts and attitudes come together, at the juncture of soul and spirit, providing a healing that can be obtained in no other way on earth. The Bible was provided for us as a vehicle to carry us so that we might be able to see Jesus Christ. If you want to grow in the Word of God, become a person with a chisel and quarry the Word look, explore, seek. Let the Word become your Word, and you will grow. I challenge you to rediscover the Bible in your own life to regin the same hunger and enthusiasm you felt when you first heard the name of Jesus.

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12

God Forgives

A lot of us live with a hidden fear that God is angry at us. Somewhere, sometime, some Sundy school class or some television show convinced us that God has a whip behind his back, a paddle in his back pocket, and he’s going to nail us when we’ve gone too far. No concept could be more wrong Your Savior’s Father is very fond of you and only wants to share his love with you. Could you use the genuine fresh air God’s forgiveness? Would you love to stand in the approval of God again? How do you do it? By genuinely admitting to God that you’ve made a mistake, knowing that God loves you more than he hates your mistankes. And knowing that he will forgive those mistakes. Does the Word of God say, There is limited condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus? No. Does it say, There is some condemnation? No It says, There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Think of it regardless of our sin, we are not guilty.

Why?

A misconception people have in dealing with life’s troubles is that it’s wrong to ask why that a Christian simply accpets and never questions. Abraham, Moses and David all interceded and struggled to understand God. But the lives of these men model for us a total reliance on God, even in the midst of questioning. It’s not a sin to doubt. Disbelief is sin, but questioning sincerely seeking is acceptable to God, because in the presence of God you may ask any question you want. God never turns his back on those who ask honest questions. He never did in the Old Testament he never did in the New Testament. So if you are asking honest questions of God, he will not turn away from you. Perhaps the reason that God doesn’t always give us the answer to the whys of our existence is that he knows we haven’t got the capacity to understand the answer. In learning to depend on God, we must accept that we may not know all the answers, but we know who knows the answers.

Trust God

I believe that many of us go through life sucking on pacifiers. Oh, we don’t see them because they’re in our bank. Or they’re parked in our garage. Or we live in them. Don’t put your hope into things that change relationships, money, talents, beauty, even health. Set your sights on the one thing that can never change trust in your heavenly Father. God loves those who need him most, who rely on him, depend on him, and trust him in everything. Little he cares whether you’ve been as pure as John or as sinful as Mary Magdalene all that matters is your trust in him.

Rest

In this fast-paced world in which we live, the very thing we need to do is what we often don’t do We need simply to sit still and open our heart to the counsel of God. Then we will be well prepared for whatever the day brings. Sometimes the most godly thing we can do for ourselves is go to sleep. Sometimes the most godly thing we can do for our family and friends is to take a break and regather our strength. Perhaps the words of the carpenter, promising rest, are so compelling because of our endless desire and quest to rest not just to rest in the body, but to rest the heart, to find peace, to finally settle down in a valley fertile with contentment. Do you know where to find rest? Where you find a clean conscience? Where you find the ability to sleep at night and live with yourself? By living in the pleasure of the Father who made you. If you want to bring under control a fast-paced life-style, you must eliminate the unnecessary if you want to be where God wants you to be, you must concentrate on the necessary.

Eternal Life

We know that someday our heavenly Father is going to take all those who follow hime into eternal happiness. It’s to that day that we look. It’s upon our hope and confidence that he will return that we stand. Our prayer should be that our Father will help us make decisions that will set us on the course of eternal life. Listen to the Christ rather than to the voices of men. Jesus says you can’t please men and still be a servant of God. Those who listen and follow Christ will be received into heaven by the pierced hands of the one who knows the freedom of giving up what you cannot own in order to receive what no one can take from you eternal life.

Reach Out

Our biblical act of worship is not what we do on Sunday mornings in coats and ties, but our act of worship is a lifelong, seven-days-a-week process of placing ourselves upon an alter of sacifice. Worship is living the principles of Christ in everything we do. You’re worshiping God by what you do all week long. What’s the difference between a Christian who’s reaching out to people, trying to help people and a Christian who’s reaching out realizes the urgency and remembers what it was like before he knew about Jesus. Maybe he realizes that when people need help, they need Jesus above all else. When you take food to the poor, that’s an act of worship. When you give a word of kindness to someone who needs it, that’s an act of worship. When you write someone a letter to encourage them or sit down and open your Bible with someone to teach them, that’s an act of worship. We’re in a fast-moving, fast-paced society. We need to build bridges between our hearts and those of people we see who need a friend and allow Jesus to cross that bridge of friendship and walk into their hearts. We know the importance of a friend. All of us need friends don’t we? Whether or not you are friendly could determine whether or not someone hears about Jesus Christ. Your handshake, your warmth, your walk, your friendliness could make the differnce in someone’s life.

Reach out and Touch Somebody hand make This World a better Place if you can.
