When you find Jesus as Lord and Savior, share His love.

John 15:13 KJV Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Jesus did this for you. Are you willing to do the same for others? Jesus freely gave of His life so you could have eternal life. Jesus’ personal sacrifice was so you could have a personal relationship with Him. Jesus’ shedding of blood atoned for all your sin. Aren’t you thankful that forgiveness of sin is possible because a friend took your sin to the cross. Not just any sin but all your sin. Thank you, Jesus!

Life is enjoyed when you are following God’s will.

John 11:35 KJV “Jesus wept.”

Yes, Jesus really cared from his friends. It is awesome to picture Jesus’ humanity with this very visual verse of scripture.

God sent His Son, Jesus, so that all would come to believe that Jesus is truly the Savior of the whole world. I can only imagine the tears that Jesus would be shedding today if He were physically present with us today. The world that you and I live in is fast moving away from God. Our nation has allowed the tenets of our faith to be removed from visual observance. Our nation had passed legislation that allows innocent babies to be aborted. Our nation is condoning same sex marriages under the auspices of free choice to sin as defined in God’s Holy Word. Yes, God’s heart is broken because our nation is no longer after the heart of God. Jesus is at the right hand of God and if you and I could see Him we would find evidence of the tears that have been shed for us today. We still can do something about it. We still have a voice. We still can offers prayers for a spiritual awakening in America that will be evidenced by repentance as we seek forgiveness. It isn’t too late to make it right with God.

Pray with me that men and women everywhere will see the error of their ways and believe in the inerrant Word of God. Let’s humble ourselves before a mighty God and seek His face all the time. God is good, all the time and all the time, God is good.

Luke 15:11-32 Parable of the Prodigal Son

Luke 15:32 KJV It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

Rejoice when Jesus becomes Lord of all again. The world pulls people away from a personal relationship with the Lord. The world’s attractions are always going to be superficial. They look great on the surface but their motives are to destroy any presence of a loving caring Father in Heaven. When reality finally sets in and the world’s attractions aren’t as attractive as once thought, returning to God’s family becomes a time of rejoicing.

Pray for your family member that is facing their life without Jesus. They may want to come home again. Be there for them. There is hope.

God’s hand is in all that happens.

Joseph was mistreated by his brothers and sold into slavery (Genesis 37). Years later, when famine forced them to come to Egypt for grain, they found their own brother in charge of everything. Joseph told them, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives” (Genesis 50:20).

Although “wicked hands” crucified Christ, it was part of God’s plan for infinite good (Acts 2:23). You can be certain that “All things work together for good to them that love God” (Romans 8:28).

The above comments were copied from a Guideposts devotional by Ruth Stafford Peale, January 12, 2013.

Don’t think for one second that God doesn’t know what is happening in your life.

Serving because Jesus lives,
