♫ What a fellowship, What a joy divine, Leaning on the everlasting arms, I have blessed peace, With my Lord so near, Leaning on the everlasting arms. ♫  There is no greater fellowship than the fellowship we can have with the Lord as born again believers.  Having that fellowship gives us a place where we can lean on the Lord for the strength and guidance we need every day.  My hope is that all who read this have a personal relationship with Jesus and if they don’t will accept him as their Lord and Savior so we all can have that fellowship and the blessed peace it brings.  God bless!

Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.  I believe it is important for believers to fellowship with other believers.  I know that there are some who have to work today and others that can’t attend services because of illness, but as the nicer weather approaches, let’s not allow the lake or the golf course to keep us out of church.  We need the love and support that comes from other believers as we fellowship together.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ All that thrills my soul is Jesus; He is more than life to me; And the fairest of ten thousand, In my blessed Lord I see. ♫  What thrills us?  If we are a born again believer we should be thrilled by just hearing the name of Jesus.  He should mean more than anything in this world to us and just the mention of his name should motivate us to share the Good News of the Gospel with those we come in contact with.  Does the name of Jesus thrill us?  Do we share the Good News?  God bless!

Today’s Thought

I preached a sermon on the radio last night (on Radio CIA) titled All In.  If we are going to be what God wants us to be, we need to strive to be all in in our walk with him.  To be all in means a total commitment to doing the will of the Lord.  I believe we are living in the days leading up to the return of Jesus to take the redeemed home with him to Heaven.  There is much work for us as believers to do before Jesus returns and it will require us to be all in for him.  We need to ask ourselves, are we willing to be all in for the Lord.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ I like the old time singing, shouting, I like the old time preaching of God’s Word, I like the old time singing, shouting preaching, praying, I like the old time way. ♫  I would guess that there are very few reading this that have ever heard this chorus much less have ever sung it.  I remember singing it as a kid in church.  It came to my mind this morning as I was getting ready to get out of bed.

As I thought about it, I miss a lot of the “old time” way when we had a move of the Holy Spirit in our services.  I miss the sin chasing, devil stomping, Holy Ghost revivals of the past.  You can call me old fashioned if you choose, that’s okay.  But, many of our church services have become so sophisticated that there isn’t room for the Holy Spirit to move.  Many preachers don’t preach about sin anymore, their Sunday morning sermons are all about a series from someone’s book that means more than the moving of the Spirit.  Let’s get back at least some to the “old time way”.  I welcome your thoughts.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

Matthew 22:21 They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them,  render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.  When I think of tax day, April 15th, this verse always comes to mind.  I don’t like paying the government anymore than anyone else, but we have no choice unless we want to break the law.  But, do we “render” unto God what He deserves?  As we think about tax day, let’s think also about what a privilege it is to serve a living God and give him the praise and admiration He deserves.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  I got a little later start this morning because I slept in a little bit.  I haven’t been sleeping all that well, so I took advantage of the time this morning since I didn’t have to be up early.  Just as rest is necessary for the human body, rest is necessary for the soul.  When we are weighed down spiritually, which happens from time to time, God has given us the opportunity to go to him and find spiritual rest.  Take advantage of the time to get away and rest in the Lord.  It will energize you for the kingdom work you need to do.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

It is my personal opinion that we give the devil way too much credit.  Let me explain.  Many times things happen where the devil has nothing to do with it.  This morning we are having a plumbing problem.  We will be calling a plumber to fix it and all will be okay.  I know many Christian people who would look at the problem and blame the devil for it.  It’s not the devil’s fault, the plumbing is just old and it broke.  So, don’t give the devil credit for everyday problems he has nothing to do with.  Just praise the Lord for another day and “call the plumber”.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

I Thessalonians 5:16 Rejoice evermore.  There’s not a day that goes by that we shouldn’t rejoice for all that God has done for us.  We as born again believers have so much to rejoice about.  It just takes stopping from the hustle and bustle of life for a few minutes to realize that God has been so good to us.  So this Sunday morning, if at all possible, let’s find ourselves in the house of the Lord and “rejoice evermore”.  God bless!

Today’s Thought

♫ Signs of the times are everywhere, There’s a brand new feeling in the air, Keep your eyes upon the eastern sky, Lift up your heads redemption draweth nigh. ♫  If we understand scripture at all we surely realize end time prophesy is being fulfilled at an increasing rate.  It is so important that those of us that are born again believers not only watch for Jesus’ return, but increase our efforts to reach those that don’t know the Lord before it’s to late.  Watch for Jesus’ return, but keep on working.  He’s coming soon.  God bless!
