June 14th 2019 – In the Shadow of the Cross

“After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died.” (1 Corinthians 15:6)

They had known Jesus before His death and again saw Him after His resurrection. Surely, this group of believers was blessed to know Christ personally. I can imagine there would be no other group of individuals on earth who would long more passionately for His return. After all, they had sat and listened to His teaching. They broke bread in fellowship with Him. They experienced the pain of watching Him die and then experienced the pure joy of seeing Him alive again! After He ascended to heaven, they must have thought, “Any day now He will come again for us.”

Now let’s fast forward 2000 years… and we still wait. While we may never have spoken to Jesus face to face, we continue to go to Him in prayer. While He has not eaten at our dinner tables, we take communion at His. Each day, we stand in the shadow of the cross and what He has done for us, and we long for His return. But waiting is not passive, it’s active. Until He comes again, we continue to share the amazing story of God’s love for sinners and the death of Christ on our behalf. It’s a timeless truth that will ring throughout eternity from today in our world until long after He has come again.

“We should live in the expectation of the return of Jesus.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I look forward to the coming of Your Son and His Kingdom that will follow. Help me to remember that this world is a temporary place and that my true home is with Christ. Until He returns, give me strength, wisdom and opportunities to tell others about our coming King. Keep us in the Shadow of the Cross we will wait for Your Glorious and Triumphant return. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

December 22nd 2018 – Ready And Waiting

“For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again.” (1 Corinthians 11:26)

Have you ever had to wait in line for something you love? Maybe you have stood in line to be first at a movie. You may even be someone who loves to get up at 3 am so you can sit outside the store right before a holiday big sale. Or Someone that has been waiting all year for Christmas. Whatever the case, we all have experienced anticipation for something we love. You can even say that, as Christians, we are all living lives of expectation as we wait for the coming of our Lord.

(Romans 8:18) “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”

Just imagine, all the sufferings of this world including the sadness, sickness, pain and death that are all around us will one day be gone. While we wait here on earth and endure the hardships of a fallen world, Jesus Christ prepares our new home and will one day return to take us there. This is not fantasy or a mad man’s dream. These are the very Truths of God and they can be trusted. So no matter how long this line of earth may seem, continue to look up and be reminded that one day He is coming.

“We should always be thinking of and looking forward to the coming of our Lord.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your love and the hope I can have in Jesus. Forgive me of my sins and make me new. Fill me with Your Spirit so that I can share the hope of heaven with everyone I meet. Use me today to share the gift of salvation and change someone’s eternity. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

July 31st 2018 – Three Tenths of A Second

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 15:58)

What if you knew that within 24 hours the world was coming to an end? Would it change your perspective on life? Would it change what you did or who you talked to? It may not be something we think about often, but when we take a moment to reflect on these things, it can open our eyes to the shortness of life and God’s imminent return.

(Matthew 24:27) “For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”

The typical lightning bolt travels at 3,700 miles per second. While it may travel a long distance, this line of electricity is only seen for tenths of a second. According to God’s Word, our Lord will return in the same manner. In three-tenths of a second, our lives will forever be changed. It could be today, it may be years from now but it will happen.

Are you ready? Do you know Jesus as your Savior? If so, are you living for Him? He’s coming quickly. He’s coming in power. He’s coming with rewards. Again I ask, are you really ready?

“We should live ready. We should live knowing that life one day will suddenly, absolutely and radically change.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for the Truth of Your return. What a blessing to know that One day You will come to make all things right and to give us new bodies so that we can serve You for eternity. Lord, help me to not wait until then but to begin serving You here. Give me the power through your Holy Spirit to live a steadfast, immovable life of service to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, Don’t wait! In a flash of a second it could be too late!” Click Here to read Four Simple Steps to Jesus.

January 2nd 2016 – What if Tomorrow Never Comes

images-122

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,” (2 Peter 3:10-11)

What if I told you that tomorrow our world was coming to an end? What would become important to you? Would you seek to buy more stuff? Would you spend the time catching up on your favorite TV show? Most likely, you would spend time with those you love or even begin sharing Jesus with anyone you could find.

While it may not be tomorrow (even though it is possible), the bible shares with us that one day everything we know will change. There will be no more money to collect, or a career to build or earth to stand on. The only things that will remain are those things that are eternal. While money may be burned up, when we give money to the Lord now, it changes lives for eternity. On the same note, our careers may not last but when we witness to a co-worker, we have just helped form a relationship that will last forever. God has created us to be eternal beings. Our greatest purpose is to love God and enjoy Him forever. What’s great about that is that we don’t have to wait to fulfill that purpose. As we start loving God and loving others, we begin sowing into eternal things and forever changing our world.

As children of God we should live for the eternal not the temporal.

Prayer:

Dear God, I know that I was not created to simply occupy this world. You have greater things for me to do, things that will last for eternity. Open my eyes to opportunities to share Your love and grace with others so they can know about eternal life. Help me to look past this world so that I am inspired by the next. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Invitation:

Jesus Christ says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him” (Revelation 3:20)

The Bible promises eternal life to all who receive Christ: “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life” (1 John 5:11-13)

If you have not asked Jesus into your lifeYou can receive Jesus Christ right now by faith through prayer.

Prayer is just talking with God. He knows your heart, so don’t worry about getting your words just right. Here is a suggested prayer to guide you:

Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive you as my Saviour and Lord. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.

If you have done this, then congratulations! (Luke 15:7) says that when one sinner accepts Jesus Christ as his or her Saviour the angels rejoice. So there’s a party going on in heaven right now over your decision! Remember this date as your “second birthday,” the day you were born into a new life in Christ! You have God’s Word that he answered your prayer.

Please take a moment to contact me, I would love to pray with you personally for this wonderful new journey you are on..

August 24th 2015 – Jesus is Coming Back Soon

images-99

“But don’t forget this, dear friends. . . . He isn’t really being slow about his promised return, even though it sometimes seems that way. But he is waiting, for the good reason that he is not willing that any should perish, and he is giving more time for sinners to repent.” (2 Peter 3:8,9)

Look around us,  everything is changing so quickly, right before our eyes and at such an alarming rate. If you have ever read the Holy Bible,  it should come as no suprise how this story goes.

Many people are asking, “Where is history heading?” A careful student of the Bible will be led to see that God controls the clock of destiny. Amid the world’s confusion, God’s omnipotent hand moves, working out His unchanging plan and purpose. Jesus Christ is coming to earth again. It is Christ who is in control, and He will determine the outcome.

George Whitefield, a great English evangelist, said, “I am daily waiting for the coming of the Son of God.” But he did not sit down and do nothing. He burned out his life in proclaiming the Gospel of Christ.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, deliver us from slothfulness, keep us  quickened to deliver Your message of salvation to everyone who will listen, until that day we die or You return again. We thank you for Your love and presence,  we praise You for the day when Jesus returns. Amen.
