In all circumstances???


This is a very simple but yet very important verse of the bible!

1 Thessalonians 5:18

18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.



I heard Pastor Mutter from our local First United Methodist Church make a very good point yesterday about this verse at our community Thanksgiving service. He said it says give thanks "in" all circumstances and "for" all circumstances. When things are going badly we are to give thanks because God is with us in those circumstances if you are a believer in Christ Jesus. God does not give bad things so we don't thank him for the bad circumstance.



Matthew 7:9-11

9 Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? 11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!



Romans 8:28



And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.



James 1:13



Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.



Now let me clarify here that we reap consequences of our sins. So when bad things come it isn't like we don't deserve them for we have sinned. God could stop them, but we reap what we sow sometimes!



Of course it is easy to give thanks when things are going well but let us not get to the point when we take it for granted!



So are you giving thanks in all circumstances? You should because our God is in control!

Brag on God!


Psalm 44:8

8 In God we have boasted continually, and we will give thanks to your name forever.



Short and simple today as the verse pretty well says it all. Do you brag on God? Not just every once in a while but continuously? He deserves it! When we brag on God it reminds us how great He really is thus we will give thanks for all He is and all He does. We are so unworthy but He is so worthy!

With my whole heart!


God doesn't deserve just a passing thanks, He deserves thanks with everything we got!





Psalm 9:1



I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.



Just take time over the next few days and think about all the wonderful deeds God has done for you, for others, in the past, present, and future. It is mind boggling when you take the time to think about it. Then praise and thank Him with all you got!



Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!



Tom

Worship together


Did you take time to go to church yesterday? God expects you too.



Leviticus 23:3



The Sabbath

3 “Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation. You shall do no work. It is a Sabbath to the Lord in all your dwelling places.





Hebrews 10:25



25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.



From the old testament to the new, God has always had the design for believers to come together to worship and praise Him. Anyone who says they do not need the church does not know their bible and the teachings of Christ. He established the church and died for the church. The church is not the building but the people who have trusted in Jesus as Lord and Savior.



God has given us seven days in a week, and He expects us to take one to rest and worship Him with other believers. It is very clear in the Word. So are you? Are you teaching your kids this important teaching in the Word of God? If not start today!



God even set the standard for us in the very beginning:



Genesis 2:2



And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.



No excuses! Get to church and worship with other believers!



Tom

Death keeps coming!


It seems like death just keeps coming don't it? I am sure you are like me and have lost some loved ones over the past year. Sadly this is life. Just yesterday, I lost a classmate, Henry Moses. Why does death come? Sin. All of us sin and all of us will die unless Jesus returns first. The bible has given us all the details:



Romans 3:23

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,



Romans 5:12



Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned—



We do have good news in all this though. God loves us. Even though we sin against Him, He still loves us, and has a free gift for us.



Romans 6:23



23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.





Romans 5:8



But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.



A free gift! Everyone likes a free gift, only this gift has love and eternity in heaven wrapped up in the shed blood of Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe and follow!Jesus died so you can live forever in heaven, don't ever get over that! You and I don't deserve heaven, but Jesus covered your sin so you and I can go! Thank you Jesus!



Remember this from the mouth of Job in the bible:



Job 14:1



“Man who is born of a woman is few of days and full of trouble.



So true! Life is short, be prepared!



Love to all!



Tom
