Luke 12:32 KJV Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Jesus’ words are very encouraging. They allow you to realize that there is hope for those that ask Jesus to be their Lord and Savior. Jesus said that He is the way, the truth, and the life. Knowing that to be the case should cause people to strive to know Him in a personal way. Unfortunately, not everyone will decide to do so. This could be why Jesus referred to those that followed in His time here on earth. His reference was to a “little flock”. To become part of the “little flock”, one must admit that Jesus is God’s Son; one must confess their sin and turn away from them; and one must believe that Jesus died for their sin and rose again to be with the Father in His kingdom. Are you rejoicing in your membership into God’s “little flock”?

Romans 8:18 KJV For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Remember the past. Thankful for today. Look forward to the future. You think you have everything under control but in the blink of an eye things change. I just found out today that a Christian brother passed yesterday from this life into life everlasting. Unknown to me he recently had a major stroke. I just saw him a couple of weeks ago helping family members maintain their lawn. It was really needed. That is what he did for family.

How should we reflect in what God is doing? Remember the past spent in service to the Lord. Thankful for today and each personal encounter you will have with loved ones. Look forward to the glory that will be found with the Lord.

Isaiah 1:18-19 KJV Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

There is hope for the lost in the world. God wants His children to always remember that His love is always available to those that seek Him and are willing to be obedient to doing His will in their lives.

Have you made mistakes in judgement? Have you ventured in worldly affections? Have you done something that you know the Lord does not look kindly toward? We all have! Praise be to God that we have this same offer of forgiveness on the table. God will forgive if you will repent. Enjoy the blessings that are awaiting you when you do what the Lord expects and requires of His children.

Romans 13:8-9 KJV Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

We struggle with what is going on in the world today. There are terrorist groups who are seeking power by forcing their will on people who have no one to rise up for them. May I be so bold to suggest that there is someone who wants to help them because He loves them. People who do care for the less fortunate are doing all that they can to help those wanting peace in their lives. I would like for all Christians to be in prayer for those who are enduring the struggle to find peace somewhere even if it means relocation to another country. They need to see that there is love in this world. That love comes from a relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Look for opportunities to love your neighbor. Realize that your neighbor could be anywhere in the world. Except for the grace of God, you could be the one in need someday.
