Faith Identification with Christ

If we would be followers of Christ indeed we must become personally and vitally involved in His death and resurrection. And this requires repentance, prayer, watchfulness, self-denial, detachment from the world, humility, obedience and cross carrying. That is why it is easier to talk about revival than to experience it.

To avoid personal involvement with the cross we have become adept at finding or creating religious projects to soothe our conscience and make things look good. Among these may be named evangelism and foreign missions. These are good, scriptural activities, incumbent upon all Christians, but all presuppose that they who engage in them should be holy, Spirit-filled and totally committed to God. To carry on these activities scripturally the church should be walking in fullness of power, separated, purified and ready at any moment to give up everything, even life itself, for the greater glory of Christ. For a worldly, weak, decadent church to make converts is but to bring forth after her own kind and extend her weakness and decadence a bit further out.

Your Love Guard Me Through The Night….

TONIGHT I PRAY that you thank the Lord frequently as you journey through out your day.  When you do this it enables you to pray without ceasing and it allows you to become more aware of His Pleasure shining upon you and your prayers become a sweet aroma to the Lord.  I pray that you thank Him throughout the day for it will bring you His Presence and Peace. When your mind is occupied with thanking the Lord, you will have no time for worrying or complaining. If you practice thanking Him consistently negative thought patterns will gradually grow weaker and weaker.  I pray that you draw nearer to Jesus with a grateful heart, and let His Presence fill you with His Joy and His Peace. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen…  I love you all!!!  God bless you!!! ♥♥♥

Disciminating Reading

I hope my readers conclude right here that I have contradicted myself in the above paragraphs. It will indicate that they have been reading with their critical faculties awake. But actually there is no self-contradiction present. I have warned against harmful books and declare that there is no harm in reading in fields far removed from the standard evangelical meadows considered safe by the timid souls who think they must defend Christianity and protect the faithful from the effects of alien ideas. I'll explain. 

By harmful books I do not mean those on a high intellectual level, such as the classics, poetry, history, political science and whatever falls within the category of the liberal arts. I mean cheap fiction (religious or secular), shallow religious chop suey such as is found in so many religious magazines, the world of religious trash designed to entertain the saints; I mean the self-glorifying religious adventure stories written by the brethren of the restless feet who refuse to take any responsibility or to stay in one place long enough to plant a single tree or lay a single foundation, but who always manage to spin an exciting yarn when they get back home. I mean the "digest" type of religious literature, precooked and predigested, to be ingested with a minimum of effort and in the shortest possible time. Such matter not only affords no nourishment for the soul, but its continuous use creates a parasitic mind in the reader, gives him a morbid appetite for wind and makes the reading of serious religious books not only distasteful but impossible. 

I deliberately omit from my list of dangerous books the vulgar and the unclean. I take it for granted that no Christian would stain his soul with such literary putrefaction. At least I am quite sure that no one who reads this page will need to be warned about such books.

It Starts with the Family
"Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you."  —Exodus 20:12

Few things in life can bring us as much pleasure or pain as our families. When things are working well in the family, it's great. When things are not going so well, it's tough. Parents have tension with children. Children have tension with parents. Husbands have tension with wives. Wives have tension with husbands. Then there are the in-laws. Families are complex. But God established the family.

In the Ten Commandments, before a word is said about how we treat one another, God starts with the family: "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you" (Exodus 20:12). 

In Genesis we have God bringing Adam and Eve together. He started with the family. He created the family. And He—and He alone—defines the family. God loves the family.

There is only one picture that God gives to a lost world to show His love for the church and the church's love for Him. That is marriage. He says, "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her" (Ephesians 5:25), and "Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord" (verse 22).

Effectively, here is what God is saying: "Look at this Christian couple right here. See the way that husband loves his wife? That is how I love this church, My people. See how that wife loves her husband? That is how My church loves Me."

Because of that, when a Christian family starts to unravel and when Christian people get divorced, that is devastating in many ways to the testimony of believers in a given community.

It has been said that a family can survive without a nation, but a nation cannot survive without the family.

Your Love Guard me Through The Night.....

TONIGHT I Pray that you realize what a mighty GOD we serve!!!   There is nothing too difficult for Him.  I pray that you realize He uses weak ones like us to accomplish His purposes.  That your weakness is designed to open you up to HIS powers!!!!   Walk in HIS glory and do not fear your limitations or the days demands against your strength.  For it is when we trust in Him with all of our heart, mind and spirit that He will see us through each challenging situation.  Our Lord is not a careless GOD.  When He allows difficulties to come into our lives He will equip us to fully handle them.  We are never closer to God then when trials come upon us. Relax in His Presence and trust in His strength to bring us through every storm. In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen…  I Love You All!!!  God bless you!!! ♥♥♥

Let Him Lift That Load
For the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as a person who has broken all of God's laws.  —James 2:10

The Ten Commandments were not given to make us holy; they were given to show us that we are not holy. The commandments were given to show us that we need Jesus. The Bible says they are like a schoolmaster (kind of an old King James word). The idea is that of a disciplinarian. The commandments were given to say, in essence, "You can't do this on your own."

They are like a moral mirror. When you look at them, you say, "Uh-oh. I'm not measuring up." Every one of us has broken the commandments.

Someone may say, "Yeah, that might be true, but I haven't broken that many. I've only broken a couple of them."

Maybe. Or maybe not. The Bible says, "For the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as a person who has broken all of God's laws" (James 2:10). If you have broken even one commandment, it's enough to keep you from God and to separate you from Him. 

The commandments were given to drive us into the open arms of Jesus. That's why Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).

Have you ever been carrying around something that was very heavy and had someone say, "Here, let me take that from you"? That is what Jesus is saying. "Let Me lift that load. Let Me ease your pain. Let Me give you relief. Right now. Come to Me," He says.

That is the message of what happened at the Cross. He died for our sins and paid the price for every wrong we have ever done. And if we will turn from our sins and believe in Him, then we will be forgiven.

Word of the Day... November 26, 2015...


In Hebrews we find a long list of benefits which faith brings to its possessor: justification, deliverance, fruitfulness, endurance, victory over enemies, courage, strength and even resurrection from the dead. Then, everything that is attributed thus to faith might with equal truth be attributed to prayer; for faith and true prayer are like two sides of the same coin-they are inseparable! Men may, and often do, pray without faith though this is not true prayer, but it is not thinkable that men should have faith and not pray. Whatever God can do faith can do, and whatever faith can do prayer can do when it is offered in faith. It should not be considered strange, then, that an invitation to prayer is an invitation to omnipotence, for prayer engages the Omnipresent God and brings Him into our human affairs. According to the Bible, we have because we ask or we have not because we ask not. It does not take much wisdom to discover our next move. Is it not to pray and pray aga in and again until the answer comes? Let us not fail the world and disappoint God by failing to pray!
