Bearing each others burdens.


I am having bible study at my house on Tuesday nights at 6:30 p.m. for anyone who is interested. You are welcome to come. The main purpose is to teach myself and others to be disciplers. You see the church does a fair job of trying to bring people to Jesus but the church does a horrible job of discipling those same folks after they ask Jesus into their hearts. We must show others how to follow Jesus both by example and by teaching them what the bible says.



One aspect of being a disciple is to bear each others burdens. It is not an option and it is not just the pastors job to help with burdens in a brother or sisters life. Look at these verses:



Ephesians 4:11-12

11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,



Galatians 6:1-2

6 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. 2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.



Don't miss this! Pastor's and teachers train so WE can do the work of the ministry which part of that is to bear one another's burdens! How would you say you are doing at that? Burdens can be a number of things such as sickness, loss of job, marital problems, children problems, sin in ones life, and the list goes on. It is our job to help these folks and if we can not do what it takes get some more help!



Being a disciple of Christ involves helping others. God calls us to help others. Don't wait or think someone else is going to help that person as God has put you into their life to help them....so do it!

Fulfill your calling!


What do I mean fulfill your calling? Well when you give your life to Christ, God then calls each one of us to share the good news of His saving grace with others. It is all of our jobs. Then we don't stop there, once we lead a person to Christ we are then to disciple this person. Show them by example how to live the Christian life. We are also to pour ourselves into their lives by teaching them how to read and study the bible, pray, love others, and share their faith. This is fulfilling our calling. So let me ask you....are you?



One of the awesome things about God is He has supplied us with all we need to fulfill our calling. Here they are:



1. Holy Spirit.



John 6:63

63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.



The power to change lives come through the Holy Spirit which dwells in you if you are a follower of Christ!



2.Word of God.



2 Timothy 3:16-17

16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.



Plain and simple...the bible is our guide book for life and changing hearts to fulfill our calling is covered in the bible.



3. Prayer.



James 5:16-20

16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. 17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.19 Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, 20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.



Prayer is our communication with God. It is amazing that a Holy, Righteous God would allow me to even say a word to Him but He does and wants me to and then listen for Him to talk back to me! Pray for God to use you in a mighty way to bring others to Him and help them change for His glory.



You will be surprised that when you lead others closer to God how much closer you also will draw to God!



Fulfill your calling brothers and sisters! It is your job just as much as the preachers!



Tom

Is your faith stronger than Gideon?


As I read about Gideon, I asked myself "Is my faith stronger than Gideons?" Do I trust God at His Word or do I need signs from Him? What about you?



Judges 6:1-24



Midianites Oppress Israel

6 Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord. So the Lord delivered them into the hand of Midian for seven years, 2 and the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel. Because of the Midianites, the children of Israel made for themselves the dens, the caves, and the strongholds which are in the mountains. 3 So it was, whenever Israel had sown, Midianites would come up; also Amalekites and the people of the East would come up against them. 4 Then they would encamp against them and destroy the produce of the earth as far as Gaza, and leave no sustenance for Israel, neither sheep nor ox nor donkey. 5 For they would come up with their livestock and their tents, coming in as numerous as locusts; both they and their camels were without number; and they would enter the land to destroy it. 6 So Israel was greatly impoverished because of the Midianites, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord.

7 And it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried out to the Lord because of the Midianites, 8 that the Lord sent a prophet to the children of Israel, who said to them, “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘I brought you up from Egypt and brought you out of the house of bondage; 9 and I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians and out of the hand of all who oppressed you, and drove them out before you and gave you their land. 10 Also I said to you, “I am the Lord your God; do not fear the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.” But you have not obeyed My voice.’”

Gideon

11 Now the Angel of the Lord came and sat under the terebinth tree which was in Ophrah, which belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, while his son Gideon threshed wheat in the winepress, in order to hide it from the Midianites. 12 And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him, and said to him, “The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor!”

13 Gideon said to Him, “O my lord, if the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt?’ But now the Lord has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.”

14 Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?”

15 So he said to Him, “O my Lord, how can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.”

16 And the Lord said to him, “Surely I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man.”

17 Then he said to Him, “If now I have found favor in Your sight, then show me a sign that it is You who talk with me. 18 Do not depart from here, I pray, until I come to You and bring out my offering and set it before You.”

And He said, “I will wait until you come back.”

19 So Gideon went in and prepared a young goat, and unleavened bread from an ephah of flour. The meat he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot; and he brought them out to Him under the terebinth tree and presented them. 20 The Angel of God said to him, “Take the meat and the unleavened bread and lay them on this rock, and pour out the broth.” And he did so.

21 Then the Angel of the Lord put out the end of the staff that was in His hand, and touched the meat and the unleavened bread; and fire rose out of the rock and consumed the meat and the unleavened bread. And the Angel of the Lord departed out of his sight.

22 Now Gideon perceived that He was the Angel of the Lord. So Gideon said, “Alas, O Lord God! For I have seen the Angel of the Lord face to face.”

23 Then the Lord said to him, “Peace be with you; do not fear, you shall not die.” 24 So Gideon built an altar there to the Lord, and called it The-Lord-Is-Peace. To this day it is still in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.



As we see in verse 16 God told Gideon plainly that He would be with Gideon. But Gideon still needs a sign to carry out God's will. Actually if you read on you see Gideon needed several signs from God to carry on the work of God. This is not a good thing my friends. Jesus rebuked the Jews for needing signs and wonders to be performed so that they would trust in Him. God's word tells us He will never leave nor forsake us and that should be all we need!



Hebrews 13:5

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”



So this morning my friends, do you serve God and witness for his without question or do you need a sign to do so?

Proclaim Jesus!!!!


What keeps us from talking about Jesus in most of our conversations? I mean think about it...He has saved our souls from hell if we have trusted in Him as Savior. We seem to talk about all kinds of things daily....the weather, politics, sports, hunting, fishing, each other (gossip), clothes, jewelery, and the list goes on and on. But we find it so difficult to talk about the most important aspect of our life....Jesus. It is very sad when you think about it.



Look at these verses. In the Exodus verse God is talking to Israel, his chosen people. In 1 Peter verse God is talking to those of us who have accepted His Son Jesus as Lord and Savior.



Exodus 19:5-6

5 Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. 6 And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.”



1 Peter 2:9

9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;



Have you ever noticed the promises that God made to His chosen people, the Jews, are now promised to us the redeemed Gentiles! A priesthood, a holy nation, and His own special people! Wow think on that for a moment! How do you think we are doing in the holy nation part? Yeah me too....not very good at all!



What I want you to grasp here though is this....the bold writing in the 1 Peter verse:that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;



Those who trust in Jesus are to PROCLAIM Jesus who called out of darkness into His marvelous light! Are we? Am I? Are you? When we think about what Jesus did on that cross for us...taking our sin upon himself...why in the world are we not talking about it to others. If we love people we will tell them. Eternity is on the line. Heaven or hell. God has left the proclaiming of His message up to us!



Brothers and sisters think about this today and get to opening your mouth...it is of utmost importance!

Do others know you are a disciple of Christ?


This is a very simple and easy devotion to understand! God's Word has made it very clear that we are to love others....no exceptions! Even our enemies!



Matthew 5:43-48



Love Your Enemies

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.



But Jesus let's us know that if we are followers of Him that we must love one another as it will be a sign to others that we are His by our love!



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.”



Wow! I don't know about you but I have work to do in this area. It is easy to love those who love me back but the ones who get on my nerves or whom I just don't like very much, well those are tough to love! According to Word of God I don't have a choice. With God's strength I can do it, the question come is though am I willing?



Think about this today! Through your love do others know you are a disciple of Christ?

Where was God at school shooting?


Mike Huckabee explains this as well as anyone could. Please take time to watch this short video and then ask yourself are you inviting God into your life or are you asking him to leave?

Forgive us God for we have sinned as a nation. Help us to revive our souls and ask you to lead us again!
