Luke 6:46-47 (KJV)
46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
James 1:21-22 (KJV)
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
Oh Lord, I pray that people will wake up to live for You, starting today. May they truly desire to live a life that is pleasing in Your sight and no longer walk in sin. May You take them by the hands and lead them out of the darkness and into Your light. I know that there are many people on a road to destruction, where in their eyes, they feel like they are saved. I do not wish these people to die this way and to face the truth of their actions come judgement day. Instead, I wish people would start reading the Bible daily and find time to truly give themselves over to You in prayer. Maybe then will they start seeking You more often and desire to have a relationship with You, God. Then, will they be led by the Spirit and enjoy Your blessings from above. I know that our own works can do nothing good for our future, but Your good works, plus our faith, can move mountains. We can do all things with the Spirit of God in our lives. Nothing is impossible with You Jesus giving us direction. I am truly blessed, Lord, just to know Your will, by reading the Bible daily and through prayer. Your words have helped deepen my walk with You and now I can truly do what You have said. My walk is no longer led by my own hand but by Your works in my life. Thank You for taking me away from my hurtful desires. I was on rocky ground until you firmly placed me on Your rock. Now I am safe and am able to endure in this faith till the end. I am grateful for everything You have done for my life and pray that You will continue to lead me in the ways that are right. I trust in You Lord. I love You. Amen.
Now that we have defined what a true Christian is, I would like you to think to yourself if you are living a life of a Christian. Continue Reading
Jeremiah 23:5,6 (KJV)
5 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.
The promised Messiah has come down in the flesh to save us all from our sins. His Name is Jesus, and through Him we are saved.
We are so blessed to have Jesus come down and pay the price for our sins on the cross. He has opened the doors to salvation.
Every person will be resurrected from the dead. After that, heaven or hell will be our destination. Are you ready?
Acts 24:14,15 (KJV)
14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
Lord God, we come before You now, in order to learn and mature in the faith. We know Your words in scripture are true and faithful and that they will lead us in the knowledge and ways that are right. Truly, there will be less confusion when it comes to doctrines and beliefs when Your words are implanted upon our hearts. This is when we are taught and truths are made known to us. We are grateful for the Holy Spirit and for teaching us things that are important to our lives and our pathway to heaven. Truly, after death comes the resurrection and my desire is to come before You, being only a just person that I am through Your blood. That because of what You did for me on the cross, my life has been changed. I could never live out a life of faith and honor on my own, apart from You. It is Your power inside of me that moves me to live differently and do things that are pleasing in Your site. May my life honor You. You have given me strength to overcome the temptations of this world and to follow You above all things. Truly, I live my life to give You praise and to love You and my neighbor as myself. It is a great honor to live this way, for it brings me great job and happiness. I pray for all those that are on a path to destruction and are headed to hell. May they not die in their sins and resurrect this way. Instead, open their eyes to their guilt and their need for a Savior. This I pray that they confess their sins openly to You, Jesus, that they may be forgiven and find mercy. Thank You for Your compassion upon me and for all those that call upon Your Name. I love You Lord. Amen.
In reference to the resurrection of the dead, this was the reason why the Jews were upset with Paul. How interesting this is, since Daniel taught the very same thing that Paul taught concerning this topic. Continue Reading
Before you turn on the TV, think to yourself, have I given myself to God yet? Don't you think God deserves your time as well?
We easily get off track if we ingest our lives with TV instead of the Bible and prayer. This is starving us from the Holy Spirit.
Oh Lord, I pray that we may always make You the king of our lives. And may Your will always come first above all things. This means making time for You in our day, more so than TV and anything else. You deserve our time, for Your building of the kingdom, for our lives are Yours. When I seek You Lord, my thoughts and desires and pure. I am able to think about things that are good and wholesome and I am not led into temptation. Even my desires to serve You is elevated. Truly Your words have made a huge impact in my life and I am so grateful. Your Words are truth and lead me into life. Reading the Bible truly changes me. Thank You Lord. I pray that I may never lose this desire to read and to pray. May the time with You always be more important than anything else in my day. I have wasted too much time watching TV and doing things that will not help me. It has only left my flesh open to temptation and sin. And for this I am sorry. So convict me if I am ever in the wrong, that I may repent and turn from it, right away. Your ways lead to life eternal and I'd rather walk in Your ways instead of my own. No TV show is more important than what You can teach me in Your Word and in prayer. I need You every hour Lord. You are my Savior and my guide. Lead me every day of my life. I trust in You and love You so much Lord. In Your holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
If you were to give your time to God and lay off all that TV watching, then you would be more inclined to read the Bible, pray and do the will of God. Continue Reading
Philippians 4:6-8 (KJV)
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
