“Tell of the cross where they nailed Him, Writhing in anguish and pain. Tell of the grave where they laid Him, Tell how He liveth again. Love in that story so tender, Clearer than ever I see. Stay let me weep while you whisper, Love paid the ransom for me” Just a thought, no one, and I mean no one should be bored with the narrative of God’s love for mankind as recorded in the third of John. It is…

In the tenth of First Corinthians, the Bible emphatically states, “but God is faithful”. Think about this, God is the epitome of faithfulness. His example and standard of commitment are TRUE. Just a thought, in the thousands of years of human history, God has shown Himself and performed His good will towards all on the face of the planet. Even to those who were not considered His own in the first of Romans. Some still argue for miracles, wonders, and…

“When your enemy presses in hard do not fear, The battle belongs to the Lord! Take courage my friend your deliverance is near, The battle belongs to the Lord! We sing glory, honor, power and strength to the Lord! We sing glory, honor, power and strength to the Lord! Just a thought, which battles do we really turn over to the Lord? Marital strife, child rebellion, addiction, debt? The list of potential crises is longer than life itself. The Holy…

“I believe for every drop of rain that falls, A flower grows. I believe that somewhere in the darkest nights, A candle glows. I believe for everyone who goes astray, Someone will go to show the way. I believe, Oh, I believe. I believe above the storm, The smallest breath will still be heard. I believe that someone in the great somewhere, Is everywhere. Every time I hear a new born baby cry, Or touch a leaf, Or see the…

“For all that You’ve done I will thank you. For all that You’re going to do. For all that You’ve promised. And all that You are. Is all that has carried me through. Jesus, I thank you. Just a thought, if you are like me, you find it extremely hard to thank the Lord each day for His blessings. Not that anyone is unthankful, but just not making time in each harried day to remember from where all blessing flow…

“Resting on one’s laurels” was once a positive term. Ancient victories in the Greek Games, led to the adoration of competitors and their homeland citizens. Just a thought, this term is no longer considered optimistic. The opposite is true today and unfortunately, you do not have to accomplish anything before taking on this designation. In the fourth of Ephesians, we learn to work hard by our own hands for self and others. Those in the third of Second Thessalonians were…

We are often asked to “read between the lines” when it comes to confirming Biblical truth. When discussing doctrine, many people will make the statement, “Well, what do you think?” As if our personal opinions dictate right versus wrong. Just a thought, does God give everyone their own justice? Paul wrote in the tenth of Romans his desire was for Israel to be saved. Was he stating Israel could consider and form their personal platform for salvation and be right…

“When the Savior was praying in the garden of Gethsemane, Said, “loving Father, if you will let this cup pass from me;” I know He was thinking of the anguish death would bring to His own, How deep was His sorrow when Jesus was praying alone” Just a thought, how many episodes of agony have you undergone in this life? What was your response? How did you make it through? Most of us are convinced we did of our own…

“Lord, prepare me to be a sanctuary, pure and holy, tried and true; with thanksgiving, I’ll be a living sanctuary for you”. Just a thought, we all desire peace and a quiet place of refuge in life. With all the error, disdain, and ceremony of this world, we long for direction and a constant place of rest. Jesus assured the faithful their reward is in Heaven, not on earth as recorded in the fifth of Matthew. One has to be…

“Are you giving to the world a smile (sunny smile). Helping lessen someone’s dreary mile (dreary mile). Do you greet the world with song as through life you pass along? Cheering those you may meet along life’s way” Just a thought, does a Christian smile all the time? I would love to think so, but Scripture does not agree with this most modern principle. In the twelfth of Romans, we are to strive to get along with each other. We…

“Think it not strange that things I once cherished, Cannot allure me or charm as before; For in the flesh with Christ I have suffered, Old things are passed, I love them no more” Just a thought, a person IN Christ should by all standards be distinct from someone is OUTSIDE of Christ. The Bible teaches one is ADDED to the Church when they have believed, repented, confessed, and are baptized into Him as recorded in the second of Acts.…

“We will glorify the King of kings. We will glorify the Lamb. We will glorify the Lord of lords. Who is the great I AM. He is Lord of heaven, Lord of earth. He is Lord of all who live. He is Lord above the universe. All praise to Him we give”. Just a thought, who is Lord if not the Lord? Some people believe there is no one nor nothing “out there” and they live a sordid life attesting…
