We faithful tend to be a little gloomy… But the truth is, life is funnier than we allow. Smile and the world smiles with you…
All you saints! Sing your hearts out to God! Thank him to his face! He gets angry once in a while, but across a lifetime there is only love. The nights of crying your eyes out give way to days of laughter.(Psalm 30:4-5, MSG)
Prayer – Father God, help us see the joy in living the life you gave us! Amen
I’m a leader, you’re a leader, and they are leaders too. Ah you say, “Not me. I am at the bottom of the heap, accountable to everyone, leader of none. Not so. We are all leading someone somewhere and we hope it is just not astray.
Parents lead children through toilet training, driver’s education and college. Teachers lead students to passing grades. Friends and family share Christ with other friends and family. Neighbours invite other neighbours to church. Pastors lead their congregations toward holiness. And God is eager to lead us all.
Yes, You are my Rock and my Fortress; therefore for Your name’s sake lead me and guide me. (Psalm 31:3, AMP)
Of course, that implies that we will follow willingly.
Wireless cell phones go back generations. God created the very first one…called it prayer.
We ALL LIE—oh yes we do! We say-“Oh, Mrs. Jones how nice you look today (while thinking) “Good grief, she looks terrible in orange!”) So we get to heaven and say to God—“Hey I’ve been a good person. Why, I only lied once to Mrs. Jones.
That’s like trying to be your own insurance company. It’s you deciding that your self-righteousness is equal to Christ who became righteousness on our behalf.
And do you know where liars go? The Bible says that they go into the lake of fire.
SO the question is—HOW CAN WE SAVE OURSELVES? It can’t be done.
On this one thing we all agree with God… We don’t want to end up in hell and he doesn’t want us there either. That’s why he sent Jesus to die for our sins…
Prayer – Lord Jesus, I do believe that you are the Son of God and that you died on the cross to pay the price for my sin. I believe that you rose from the dead and that you’re alive right now.
Please come into my life. Forgive my sin. Make me a member of your family. I now turn from going my own way. I want you to be the center of my life. Thank you for your gift of eternal life. and for your Holy Spirit who has come to live in me. Amen
Moses trusted his closest friends and advisers to follow his instructions; to do what he asked. After all, he was obeying God and he took it for granted that they would too. Can your friends, family, spiritual leaders, your God, the Holy God of Israel… trust you?
Windows 10 and I are speaking now but definitely not chatting up a storm. –for a long while it was not even a conversation…but today …..The question is will she ever be my best friend??
