CATCH THE SPIRIT!!!

One morning Jesus walked along the edge of Lake Galilee and beckoned to a few local fishermen. He said, “Follow me” (Matthew 4:19). At that moment, everything began for them. ‘Everything’ had only been fish, and then it became people, action, and changing world history, with ever-increasing faith, ever-increasing effects. Jesus did not call them, you, or me, to switch off our smiles and to wear sackcloth. It was not to…

Trusting in God will bring you proof of His unfailing Love!!

"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing Love, for I have put my trust in you.  Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul." ~Psalm 143:8 Stop!!  Quit looking around anxiously and trying to figure out what to do!!  The door bell is gonna ring or the phone is gonna ring and mess up all of your plans anyway.  Relax and let the…

JESUS DID NOT MAKE PEACE.....HE IS PEACE!!!

"Now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.  For He himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation." ~Ephesians 2:13-14  "you who once were far off"??  What does that mean??  Far off from what?  Not what but who!! It means you were once far, far away…

Become a child of God FIRST, then you will become a servant for the right reason!!!

You are way off base if you are "serving the Lord" because you think it's the right thing to do!!  Remember the prodigal son (Luke 15)??  The son came home to be the Father's servant, but the Father wouldn't have it that way.  He wasn't looking for a servant, he was looking for a his Son!!!  Your Heavenly Father is looking for sons and daughters as well.  Being a child of God must come first.  That must be our top…

What does "FREEDOM" mean to you???

Some folks think that "freedom" is something that allows you to do anything you want to.  That's not freedom, that's anarchy.  True freedom is when you are seeking to please the LORD above all else.  When you allow your own selfish desires or you let others' expectations drive you, you just scatter your life and energy to the wind!!  Jesus Christ is the one and only true Master, and He will never drive you to be what…

It's all in the mind!!!

Dear Lord, please let us have the power to enjoy life today in your peace. Let us surrender every wayward thought to YOU. Fill our hearts and minds with thoughts that please you. In Jesus' name we pray, AMEN!!



"THOSE WHO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE FLESH SET THEIR MINDS ON THE THINGS OF THE FLESH, BUT THOSE WHO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT, THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT.  FOR TO BE CARNALLY MINDED IS DEATH, BUT TO BE…

THE PEACE OF JESUS WILL OVERCOME BOTH OF OUR SPIRITUAL ENEMIES!!

Jesus knew He was going to the cross in just a few hours, yet He was comforting others.  He was promising to leave them HIS Peace.  It is the very same Peace that His Father gave to Him.  It is the Peace that kept Him calm as He faced hatred, betrayal, and death on the cross!!  It is the same Peace that will get us through the difficulties of this life. (John 14:27)  ~Pastor Lynn…

DON'T BE AFRAID TO BE DIFFERENT!!

Don't be afraid to be different.  God did not call you to be like everybody else or please anyone but HIM!!  He has chosen a path just for you and the closer you follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, the more He will develop your potential and the gifts He has already given you!! STOP trying to be a people pleaser and simply bless all those around you by allowing God to make you shine brightly in a dark world!!  Do…

THE WORLD'S PEACE IS BASED ON RESORCES, GOD'S PEACE IS BASED ON A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM!!

"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you;  not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." ~John 14:27

As Christians, we have two great Spiritual Enemies: the "world", which is defined as all of mankind who live in sin and darkness, the unredeemed population of this planet and the…

May the LORD bless and keep you!!

"The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace."  Numbers 6:24-26

Let's not forget today where our blessings and our security come from.  The Lord is so full of Grace; he is gracious to all of us even when we don't deserve it.  That's what Grace is: the unmerited favor of God!!  The Lord is as close to…

What will help most???

Our 41st President, George H. W. Bush has shaved his head in support of Patrick, the two year old son of Jon, who is one of TWENTY-SIX Secret Service Agents assigned to Mr. Bush's security detail.  And all twenty six agents have shaved their heads as well in support of little Patrick who has leukemia.  I'm not sure how much 27 bald headed men are…

Choose what is better!!!

I wonder how and why we have turned into a society that glorifies busyness??  Time has become a tyrant that controls us instead of us controlling our time!!  At some point we are going to have to stop believing in the lie that more is always better: more money, more stuff, more meetings, more programs, more ball games, more activities....It's no…

Jesus, take me away!!

"Calgon, take me away!!"  Remember this commercial about the bubble bath that promised to whisk us away from all of pressures of the world??  Well there is something much better than Calgon and His name is JESUS!!  So put the world on hold, with its non-stop demands, and spend some time with Him.  Don't put Jesus on hold and think that you will someday focus on him when you get time.  The longer you push him away, the…

Better to be wounded than wasted!!!

I have learned that if you live solely to make others rejoice in God, you will face challenges and take risks, but your joy will be full.  Life isn't about finding a way to keep from getting wounded; it's about finding a way to keep it from being wasted. ~Tim Anderson (Devotional Prayer Book II)

"Who is the man who desires life, and loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips…

How can we get off the right Path??

The Good Lord has made known to us the way we should go. How can we make up excuses for not staying on the right path when He has given us the Bible, the Holy Spirit, Preachers of the Word, each other, and even our circumstances?? I don't know about you, but I am thrilled to be filled with the Joy of His Presence and Thankful for the Promise and…

What is God REALLY like???

There was a time when people, for some reason, got the wrong idea that God was a stern old man out to get us, who was just looking for a reason to punish us.  Truth is, God wouldn't have to look very hard to find a reason to punish most of us, but aren't you thankful that Jesus Christ came to show us what God is really like; Loving, Kind, Merciful, forgiving, patient, and full of Grace!! "O God, we meditate on your…

How long has it been since your last Piggy-back ride??

Do you remember how much fun it was when you were a kid, and your Daddy would give you a piggy-back ride?  Have you every laid out on the living room floor and had one of your own kids come and sit down right between your shoulder blades??  I'm not sure who enjoys these things the most; the daddy or the kid??  The Lord Loves you and He Loves it…
