Not a truer message out there, IMO

Thanks PMT

What are you here for?


God has a purpose for you. Everyone of us has things God wants us to accomplish in our life. When we do it brings God glory! Do seek God's Will for your life? It is of utmost importance that you do. I was reminded of this reading this verse in Esther yesterday:


Esther 4:14

14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”



At this time some folks had got the King to sign a decree to kill all the Jews. Esther was the Queen and asked to go appeal to the King to spare their lives. In order to go before the King the queen must be called or she could be put to death. Esther was willing to take the risk!



God has called all of us to His Kingdom. We have a choice to come into it or not. If we choose to follow King Jesus then we can come in but then we have work to do for the Kingdom! Are you willing? You are here to serve the King!



Think about this today.

Keep sharing Jesus!


Here we see Paul has just told his testimony of how Christ came into his life to King Agrippa. This is Agrippa's response:



Acts 26:28



28 And Agrippa said to Paul, “In a short time would you persuade me to be a Christian?”



The Holy Spirit was working on Agrippa. If Paul would have been allowed more time with Agrippa, he may have been moved enough to come to Jesus. So what does this have to do with us? Keep sharing Jesus to others. It may take some time to get them to come to Jesus. Every second spent on sharing Jesus with someone is worth the effort. In the end it may make the difference of heaven or hell for the person you are sharing with. I prayed for and shared with my dad for seven years before he gave his life to Jesus. Was it worth it? Absolutely!!!!!



So my friends share, share, share and you may just persuade someone to Jesus! If nothing else you have planted a seed! May God water that seed.

Is this our nation now?


Just read this before you answer the question:



Acts 28:26-27



26 “‘Go to this people, and say,“You will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive.”27 For this people's heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed;lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’



Paul was quoting Isaiah here to the Jews but i believe it can be said of our nation that was founded on Christianity. We can still turn back to Jesus as a nation but it all begins with me and you!



Oh do we need Revival and oh do we need God!

Are you ashamed?


This is an important question for all those who say they are followers of Jesus: Are you ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ? Before you answer you better think about it. How often do you share the gospel? Do you find yourself holding back as people down Christianity? Do you vote by your faith? Is your faith first in your life? Do you boldly stand upon the gospel of Jesus?



Paul boldly proclaims he is not ashamed of the gospel below:



Romans 1:16



16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.



I pray this morning we all can say this same thing! I recently asked the youth if they would give their life if they were put in a position of having to choose Jesus or death. The majority raised their hand. I told them it is much easier to say than to do if your neck is on the line. So I ask you the same....would you die for Jesus and your faith in Him?



Now one more important point to consider is this scripture:



Mark 8:38

For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”



These are to words of Jesus. Don't let these Words go by lightly. If we are ashamed of Jesus or His Words (gospel) then He will be ashamed of us before God! Ouch!



So are you being bold for Jesus and His Word? I don't really think it is an option, do you?



Think on this today!

We are not good!


I was reminded yesterday by a young lady that none of us are good! Kind of humbling when you sit down and think about it! Read this scripture and soak it all in because it is about you and I:



Romans 3:10-18

10 as it is written:

“None is righteous, no, not one;

11 no one understands; no one seeks for God.

12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.”

13 “Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive.”“The venom of asps is under their lips.”

14 “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.”

15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;

16 in their paths are ruin and misery,17 and the way of peace they have not known.”

18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”



Ouch! That hurts don't it? That is talking about you and me! We are not righteous, we don't seek God, we don't do good, we lie, we hurt others with our talk, we shed blood, we don't know peace, and we don't fear God. If that don't make you do some thinking I don't know what will.



I do have some good news and many of you already have it. Jesus! A free gift from God that overcomes all these terrible traits we have. The shed blood of Jesus covers all these sins. We repent of these things, ask Jesus into our lives as Lord and Savior, and then with the help of the Holy Spirit we live for God. We then become righteous in the eyes of God because he sees the blood of Jesus upon us. Thank you Jesus! Thank you.



We in ourselves are not good, but in Christ we are righteous!!!

Why is the USA falling apart?


Once you read these verses below it is simple to see why the USA is falling to pieces:



Romans 1:18-32



God's Wrath on Unrighteousness



18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.



All that is this nation right now! I want to point out a few things in the above passage:



1. v.19 tells us God has shown us what He desires from us. He has given us His Word to show us sin and how to become right with Him through Jesus.



2. v.20 points out the fact that if you question if God is real just look at creation. We have no excuse to question if God is real.



3. v.22-23 tells us how foolish we are...we worship idols instead of a God who created us. Now we worship t.v. stars, cell phones, music, sports and a host of others things!



4. v.24-28 shows us how sexually immoral we are. Homosexuality, porn, adultery, molestation, rape and the list goes on. God allows us to do these things because we have pushed him out. Just like Sodom and Gomorrah it will cost us in the end.



5. v.29-31 describes the USA today. Sadly many of these things are both inside and outside the church. Most people can not see a difference between a follower of Jesus and one who is not. Brothers and sisters this should not be so! We are to be set apart from the world.



6. v.32 tells us not only do we know what God desires, we deserve to die because we do what God doesn't want us to do and encourage others to join us and approve of their sin! Wow.



So how can it change? One person at a time starting with me and you. Make sure our own life is right with God and then lovingly help others come to Jesus and live for Jesus. Remember you alone will answer to God!

No promise of easy life!


So many times I hear folks say they can't understand why something is happening to them because they are faithful followers of Christ. Here is my response to that. Why do you think it should not happen to you? We all have sinned, and we all have to face consequences of our sins. No where in the bible does it say we will not have troubles this side of heaven. Remember this side of heaven is not our home, we are just passing through. Heaven is our home and that is when we will have the perfect life! For an example, look at Job:



Job 1:1



1 There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job, and that man was blameless and upright, one who feared God and turned away from evil.



Job was a godly man, he had everything one could be blessed with. In one day all that was taken away. He remained faithful to God. His wife turned on him, and his friends falsely accused him of sin bringing this on. Job remained faithful. Now in Job's case, his faithfulness, brought God's blessing back here on this side of heaven. That is not always the case. We can look at Stephen in the New Testament and see that as he remained faithful to God but was stoned to death.



The key is remaining faithful, and continuing to love our faith no matter what the circumstances. This side of heaven will not be easy but when we get to heaven oh will the good times roll! Praise God!

Want peace with God?


Romans 5:1



Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.



According to the Word of God there is only one way to have peace with God and that is through Jesus. You can't do enough good things to earn peace only through a relationship with Jesus Christ! Do you have this peace? You can. Invite Jesus into your life today, the peace of God is waiting for you!
