A good way to reach people on Halloween is through gospel tracts. This way you can witness to people as they come to your door, even if it is through the pamphlet and a piece of candy. I use this Continue Reading
Halloween is not a night for Christians. As followers of Christ, we don't mix ourselves with any form of darkness, but abide in the light of Jesus.
2 Corinthians 6:14 (KJV)
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
On Halloween, do not allow the darkness of this day to penetrate your life. Stay far away from it and it's festivities and instead, abide in God's light.
When we come to know God it is important to put away childish things. Repent, or else you will be judged based on these things.
Lord God, this gift of life is surely amazing. I cannot even fathom how you created us all. I am left in awe just thinking about my children and how they came about. What precious babies they were and now they are still so beautiful as they age. I am so blessed to have my daughters and wife in my life. Each of them brings me so much joy. They give off this light that is contagious. Thank You for the love they show me. I know that it was You that made it all possible. You ordained my family from the beginning. Now, with Your light in my life I can guide them to know what is right and what is wrong. I can teach them Your ways, that they may also come to know You also. In order to help raise my children, with my wife, I understand that childish things are in the past. It is important to put off the dark things of the past and follow You. If Your light falls from my countenance, I know that my children will stumble also. So please help me and my wife fight temptation and to always seek You. We only want to follow You Lord. You are the light of our lives and we love You. Our hope is in You. Amen.
As parents, we repent, as we also teach our kids, for if we neglect this opportunity we know there will be consequences come judgement day. Continue Reading
Ecclesiastes 11:9,10 (KJV)
9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.
10 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.
Can you see the darkness in Halloween? You will if God is your guide. Therefore, stay in the Lord's light and do not participate.
Those that are being led by God can see what is wicked and what is righteous. How is your vision?
John 3:19-20 (KJV)
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Oh Lord, I pray that you will shine your light upon us. Give us vision, dear Lord. Cause us to uphold what is righteous and hate what is evil. Just as you love the sinner but hate the sin, may we also do the same when it comes to the wickedness of this world. May we never be partakers in evil things that only cause Your light to scatter. One of these wicked and vile things that I worry so much about Lord is Halloween. I know for a fact that many so-called Christians are on the streets with their kids on that day. And as their kids are going out trick-or-treating, the darkness of that day is seeping into their lives. So much darkness is contained in the costumes and haunted houses, that I fear for their souls. I do not wish these same people to get caught up in the acts of Satan, this year. May these people learn of the darkness that is contained therein and stay far away from it. Just as You have told Paul to avoid all appearance of evil, I ask that You help people to understand that Halloween is also evil and to avoid it as well. It did take a coming out of my addiction to finally come to Your light and see the darkness of Halloween, but now I am able to spot it at first glance. You have given me vision Lord and I pray that more people will begin to be guided by You. I love You Lord. Amen.
Those that are being led by God can see what is wicked and what is righteous. Everything that is of the world is made crystal clear to them. Continue Reading
Why is the love of money the root of all evil? It is because, instead of giving to those in need, most people keep it all to themselves.
Oh Lord, I know that there is a great need in this world and as Christians, we can make a big difference. People don't have to continue to suffer under our watch any longer. As we are walking down the street and see a person that is homeless, we could offer them some money, some food or water, our coat, our hat, and even our shoes. Even, while we are driving and see people in need, we could listen to the Holy Spirit's prompting and stop and care for them. You Lord, give us patience and a kind and generous heart. Nothing is ever a rush when You have someone in need and we are the one to care for them. Lord, may Your promptings be heard, even when we are at the store. Yes, God, when people in front of us are checking out and are struggling to pay their groceries, give us boldness to step up and pay the rest. And if we are well off, give us a desire to pay it all for them, that they may have money later and not suffer. I know that we are to be a light to this generation, and I pray that we all become one today. To be used by You, God, is the most amazing thing ever and I pray that more people will experience it today. It truly is amazing to see people in need be comforted and find peace. We do this for Your glory Lord. It is because we love You and our neighbor. I love You Lord. Amen.
The more money a person has, also comes many foolish thoughts and decisions, if God is not involved. Continue Reading
