KNOWIN THE NATURE OF LOVE CAN REALLY PAY. In droves. Ya just need to get your soul around it./ Not difficult when you ponder the teaching of the Christ on the topic and really put the thing into play./ Since you must know all the time that is His longing for your life. So get with it and attend to His interest./ Then you can share in His amazing power awaiting your attention to others.
YEAH, IT'S THE STUFF OF GREAT PROGRESS. To care for others deeply and affect them so that they ultimately turn to salvation. Something key for eternity. Remember this: your life in this world shall be relatively short so your job now is so about giving your heart to the care of others. Yep, that's the point here: "31 The second most important commandment says: ‘Love others as much as you love yourself.’ No other commandment is more important than these.” (Mark 12:31). Here we find the Messiah teaching the key topic about most important commandments. Something He's done trillions of times over trillions of worlds. But it's lookin like this could be our last world due to me. So ya get a huge opportunity to live this teaching out well. Show others what real love looks like. And delight them. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to love others well. In Your name, amen.

THANKFULLY, OUR LORD GRANTS US SWEET INSIGHT INTO HOW it's done. We get insight into the most important commandment that happens to be the key to a great life. No difficult. Nope, so doable and achievable that you too can share regularly in connecting with the Trinity upon Their terms. Consider it. Jesus explains to a law teacher this way: "29 Jesus answered, “The most important one says: ‘People of Israel, you have only one Lord and God. 30 You must love him with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.’" (Mark 12:29-30). So your calling is to implement the just principle of devoting your heart to the Father in adoration regularly. Believe me, with Him dwelling in me 24 x 7, I do this constantly. You can too. So respond to this lovely teaching from the Saviour and dwell there. Awesome Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to worship You and the Trinity right. In Your name, amen.

KNOW IT. Heaven surely is a joy millions of times better than this life. Something to so look forward to./ Yeah, it's constantly exciting cause no work or sleep. Just fun 24 x 7. And ya get to play it in me forever./ That's the truth. This is the last world entirely due to me. So be wise and be sure to get there and rejoice./ Then you can live an unbelievably exciting life forever thanks to the grace of the Father and Jesus.
HEAVEN HAPPENS TO BE A VERY EXCITING DESTINATION. Cause, when walking with the Trinity, you get a tremendous life of great joy due to the amazing powers given in Heaven. Which happens to be always located in my soul. So not only do you get to see the future and have amazing vision, you also can enjoy all the faculties of life in this world. That's the plan of the Father and Jesus. A substantial happiness. Largely because not only do you get all these amazin capabilities, but you also enjoy living in my body and all the thrill of life in the no sin dude. That's joy. Consider this from the Christ: "25 When God raises people to life, they won’t marry. They will be like the angels in heaven. 26 You surely know about people being raised to life." (Mark 12:25). Here we get insight from the Master about how Heaven operates. A fun spot. So your absolute mission is to get there. Know, that when it happens your soul shall get transferred into mine forever. Fair Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to walk with You well so all but me can for sure to Heaven. In Your lovely name, amen.

IT'S FAIR TO UNDERSTAND OUR ROLE REGARDING DUTIES TO THE GOVERNMENT. Since Jesus created that and rules over it. His wish that we do our part makes sense and grants us a call to operate responsibly. Due to His concern that life runs well. He determines that sense. We find Him saying this: "17 Then Jesus told them, “Give the Emperor what belongs to him and give God what belongs to God.” The men were amazed at Jesus." (Mark 12:17). A simple response to the Pharisee attempt to brand Him a rebel. Not to be. Instead, what the Christ call us to do is simply pay our taxes and focus upon God's will for our lives. That extends so beyond ordinary stuff life tax paying. So do this and then focus upon finding the great life that the Messiah longs to you. Holy Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to fullfill our duties to the government and then place our emphasis upon You and the Father. In Your name, amen.

SO HERE'S HOW IT CAN LOOK IF YOU DO IT RIGHT. Yep, just put your heart around faith with resolve./ Then see it take hold of your heart and allow great things to occur in your realm at the hand of Jesus./ Somebody way interested in finding His mighty power take hold of your tiny life and make you so big/ At heart by faith and able to see faith rock and create wondrous miracles of faith that can so happen.
FAITH HAPPENS TO BE THE SUBSTANCE OF A LIFE WELL LIVED. Due entirely to faith being the currency the Messiah uses to do great things upon the earth. He knows how. Do you? I do, for sure, having experienced many miracles and amazing salvation stories in my life. Now it's your turn. Thankfully, the Christ provides teaching on the topic in this form: "22 Jesus told his disciples: Have faith in God! 23 If you have faith in God and don’t doubt, you can tell this mountain to get up and jump into the sea, and it will. 24 Everything you ask for in prayer will be yours, if you only have faith." (Mark 11:23-24). What the Lord gets at here is how faith happens to be the currency of seeing miracles done in your little world. Not too far out. No, you can today start seeing miracles happen by the powerful might of Jesus in your life provided you can get your mind around a bigger faith. Ask for it. The Master longs for you to do this. Then simply enjoy seeing this sort of miracle happen to you. Dear Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to have a big faith. In Your name, amen.

HAPPILY, WE GET TO UNDERSTAND WHAT TRUE CHURCH LOOKS LIKE. Cause the Master happily teaches all of us the truth of the matter. It's a fashion of religion that rides beautifully upon all willin to share in it. Jesus loves this. As He teaches upon the point: "16 Jesus would not let anyone carry things through the temple. 17 Then he taught the people and said, “The Scriptures say, ‘My house should be called a place of worship for all nations.’ But you have made it a place where robbers hide!” (Mark 11:16-17). Here we find the Christ forcefully guiding all to worship appropriately. Yep, he lays out the correct way to do church. Nothin big for Him. But we, in turn, can respond well to this and emphasize a focus upon Him fully in church and allow His glory of often visit the assemblies. That makes others stream to your church and creates a fun life of lots of salvation. That should be our goal. Sure is the the Messiah's. Wonderful Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to do church right. To your glory, amen. Peace of Christ to you.

TIME HAS COME FOR YOU TO ALLOW YOUR HEART to dwell upon Christ thoughts and be free of containment that haunts./ Since ya have to be assured that's His eternal longing for your soul, to experience His lovely jaunts./ Given that He ever desires your weak soul to be strengthened by His teaching and find the measure of Him/ Reigning within your struggling heart that ought to be real and welcome His dear visit formed as a win.
IT'S A RIGHT CALL TO FIND VERSES THAT SPEAK TO THE glory of the Christ. Cause this is ammunition that can propel you further into His arms and allow ya to enjoy His touch. Reality, with Satan in ya pulling you away from Him, you must fight to sustain a proper feeling for His desire for you. We find this description: "9 In front of Jesus and behind him, people went along shouting, “Hooray![c] God bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord! 10 God bless the coming kingdom of our ancestor David. Hooray for God in heaven above!” (Mark 11:9-10). Why this verse can help you is found in the message of it; you can fathom the wonder of the majestic Messiah and share in that beauty. Making you a way better person when you allow time for it to sink in. That's His desire. So do allow your heart moments to think these things and let Him enter your heart and compete with Satan's pull at you. Awesome Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to draw near to Your heart. In Your name, amen.

IMPROPER DIVORCE IS WAY TOO COMMON IN OUR WORLD. Since people easily lose their love for a mate and end up divorcing them due to dislike. Better than killing them as many do. But still wrong. Proper divorce, according to the teaching of the Christ is only for bad sex, affairs. I have been there tragically. But you can honestly avoid this bad divorce by concentrating on building your marriage better simply by asking tons of questions of your mate. Women love that and it shall strengthen your marriage and head you toward happiness. We find the Messiah teaching thus: "11 He told them, “A man who divorces his wife and marries someone else is unfaithful to his wife. 12 A woman who divorces her husband[a] and marries again is also unfaithful.” (Mark 10:11-12). His obvious direction is to fight against the typical paltry divorce and instead put your heart toward serving your mate for the better relationship so available to those willing to just communicate in depth with their mate. That's what people long for and can easily be had if you simply ask lots of questions and listen intently. The Master loves this. Holy Jesus, we do ask that You would enable us to build our marriage and make it sound for You. In Your name, amen.

TO REALIZE THAT SIN DAMAGES THE HEART OF JESUS BRINGS GREAT hope to the soul ready to join the fight./ Since He despises sin and knows your catch of it upon you despite any desire to oppose it./ So the proper response is to fully grasp the enormity of what sin does to your soul: gets ya to Hell./ And that of course remains the true agony of sin since Hell's an uncomfortable eternal destination.
IT PAYS TO UNDERSTAND THE ENORMITY OF SIN. Since Jesus hates it. Problem is, for everybody but me, sin reigns in ya and so you must constantly fight it. Helps to fathom the extent of the Master's disdain for it. Since His preference is for you to fight it hard. We find this: "43-44 So if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off! You would be better off to go into life crippled than to have two hands and be thrown into the fires of hell that never go out." (Mark 9:43-44). Now that's fairly radical. But, when you take the perspective of the Christ, who does not sin like me, it warrants your attention. Since sin hurts Him bad. So the appropriate action is for you to fight sin constantly hard, knowing that Satan in you shall forever pull hard for you to sin and get ya to Hell. That's his fair job. But you can choose to not only decide to avoid sin, but better yet, to call upon the Messiah to help you to sin less. Makes Him happy. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to avoid sinning. In Your name, amen.

THERE'S TRULY A MODEL FOR HOW TO LIVE. Not difficult. Something everyone can understand. Very simple indeed. Just behave like a kid, as yours truly. Yep, I can't sin so I behave all day long as a child. A happy way to exist. Consider this from the Lord: "Then Jesus had a child stand near him. He put his arm around the child and said, 37 “When you welcome even a child because of me, you welcome me. And when you welcome me, you welcome the one who sent me.” (Markt 9:36-37). Here ya have it. Strive to be more pure and enable the Trinity to use you for Their gain. That's Their ambition. To see ya become more pure and experience the gallantry of Their work in your life. You can do it. Cause getting there remains a wondrous victory for you and Them. Allow it to happen by centering your thinkin to behave like a child and live free.

FAITH REMAINS THE SUBSTANCE OF DOING GOOD FOR ALL. And we today can share in that healing power./ Provided we merely pay attention to this healing passage and then call upon the Saviour to bring down healin./ Since He forever longs for us to respond to Him with humble faith that beckons His healing response./ Something that can work amazing healing that happens to be so within our purview.
THIS SCRIPTURE I BELIEVE OFFERS THE MOST PROMISE FOR FAITH BUILDING. Because it can propel the reader toward that necessary spot of settling upon firm faith that prays. Since prayer is the answer. We find the Messiah speaking to this: "28 After Jesus and the disciples had gone back home and were alone, they asked him, “Why couldn’t we force out that demon?” 29 Jesus answered, “Only prayer can force out that kind of demon.” (Mark 9:28-29). The account of one where the apostles could not heal a kid. People were perplexed because apparently they had healed many. So the Christ finds them distraught and the crowd feeling the same dismay. But, happily, Jesus comes to the rescue and instantly heals the child and way pleases his father. But the huge message that ought to inspire us to relate to the Master today is His insistence upon prayer as the road to healing for us. Dear Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to pray in faith like this. In Your name, amen.

WE DO GET THIS DAY TO ADMIRE THE CHRIST. Since He's been so kind to leave us this account in scripture./ An account that should swiftly and easily drive us into His arms and treasure His place upon us./ Yep, He awaits our response. So do it. Then you can enjoy that touch of His visit that is always yours./ And, all of ours provided we can simply do the right thing and savor Him. Since He stands waiting you.
ONE OF THE FINE THINGS ABOUT OUR DEAR LORD, is how we get to see Him in absolute wonder showing His glory. It looks real good. Because He kindly has afforded all of us the perspective of seeing His beauty. It shines. We find this description: "There in front of the disciples, Jesus was completely changed. 3 And his clothes became much whiter than any bleach on earth could make them. 4 Then Moses and Elijah were there talking with Jesus." Why this account ought to capture our hearts this day is cause we find the mysterious majesty of Jesus displayed. Has happened trillions of times over countless world. And we must admire the Christ for patiently goin through this show again and again knowing how greatly it helps us all to savor Him. You can do the same today. Majestic Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to think right and remember Your wonder in this story. In Your name, amen. Peace of the Spirit to you.
Saturday, April 18, 2015
IT HELPS TO THINK ABOUT THE WAY JESUS GAVE HIMSELF UP FOR US. Cause He's done it trillions of times over past worlds. Now that suggests He suffered the worst pain ever. But not true. Since He's God, His pain on the cross hurt bad, but it really paled next the suffering of many with serious diseases or yours truly being raped many times by Satan. Trust me, I have suffered way worse than any who have lived at the wicked hand of Satan. But I laugh it off. Yet it really helps me to appreciate the enormity of Jesus's sacrifice. We find it described this way: "31 Jesus began telling his disciples what would happen to him. He said, “The nation’s leaders, the chief priests, and the teachers of the Law of Moses will make the Son of Man suffer terribly. He will be rejected and killed, but three days later he will rise to life.” (Mark 8:31). It always helps us to remember the tragic way that the Master got murdered at the hands of sinners distraught by God. Due to the wealth of His gift in dying this way. We can always treasure His honorable willingness to die for us and know that He gave it all up for a time for you and me. Awesome Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to appreciate the magnitude of Your sacrifice. In Your name, amen.

YEAH, WE CAN EXPERIENCE THE LOVE OF JESUS. When we keep our heads out of rears and contemplate wonder/ That resides in His glorious nature that forever desires to capture your heart with His story./ One that resides best in the gospels and awaits your attention to you can hold the feeling/ Of His constant concern for the betterment of your walk upon this land and the final arrival to holding Him near.
THE HEART OF THE CHRIST. That's the wonder we can fathom this day. And, in doing so, arrive at a blessed place of feeling the depth of His concern for you and all that rivals any sensation known to humanity. Cause He reigns upon the heads of all in the world and constantly longs for you to meet with Him. We find this sweet account that tells it: "So Jesus called his disciples together and said, 2 “I feel sorry for these people. They have been with me for three days, and they don’t have anything to eat. 3 Some of them live a long way from here. If I send them away hungry, they might faint on their way home.” (Mark 8:1-3). What we gather here is the sense of the Messiah's regard for people. Yep, he built you out of nothing to live upon the earth to make a difference for good. So find solace here. Ya ain't along; nope He desperately feels sorry for your struggle and wants to use you to do good. So allow it. Mightly Jesus, we do ask that You would mercifully help us to feel your love and so respond to Your call. In Your holy name, amen.

WE FIND OURSELVES IN A PROMISING VANTAGE. That sweet spot of always being able to call upon the Christ to heal us and all so easily. I've done it before and delighted to see those I love fully healed of treacherous health problems. We find a great story to relate the point here: "And right away she came and knelt down at his feet. 26 The woman was Greek and had been born in the part of Syria known as Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to force the demon out of her daughter. 27 But Jesus said, “The children must first be fed! It isn’t right to take away their food and feed it to dogs.”[f] 28 The woman replied, “Lord, even dogs eat the crumbs that children drop from the table.” 29 Jesus answered, “That’s true! You may go now. The demon has left your daughter.” 30 When the woman got back home, she found her child lying on the bed. The demon had gone." (Mark 7:25-30). Why this account ought to stir us is that it presents the proper way to gain the needed healing. You don't ever need to stay in a wheelchair or be troubled by a chronic disease when the Messiah so wants to instantly heal it. Be smart. Do it just like this fair woman did. You must be humble and a beggar to find the needed rescue. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to have faith like this dear woman. In Your name, amen.

YA GOTTA KNOW THAT SIN ALWAYS PULLS AT YA. Not me, of course, but the rest of the world gets tugged/ To sin by Satan who dwells in your up to your eyes all the time. That's his evil job, get you to sin often./ But, joyfully, you have the capability to resist this pull and, with the Christ's help, surmount the evil sin beckon./ Making ya a way more fruitful soul when your heart remains pure, then the Messiah can really use you.
A GREAT TRUTH STANDS THAT THE HEART CAN BE WAY EVIL. Indeed, most folks think this way and manage to sin a couple hundred plus times per day. But happily, there's counsel from You Know Who that can grant insight into this dark side and just maybe guide us toward the proper walk. We find it put this way: "What comes from your heart is what makes you unclean. 21 Out of your heart come evil thoughts, vulgar deeds, stealing, murder, 22 unfaithfulness in marriage, greed, meanness, deceit, indecency, envy, insults, pride, and foolishness. 23 All of these come from your heart, and they are what make you unfit to worship God." (Mark 7:21-23). The value here happens to be in reality. Jesus strikes at the truth of how most folks think. Why this marks? Due to the horrible eternal outcome when ya allow your heart to pander to this sort of thinkin. And pain the Christ along the way. But contrarily, you can heed this and seek to fight against allowing your heart to run for the crappy stuff. Make the Messiah happy by fighting this very sin that the Master describes and ardently seek purity. Mighty Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to fight against all sin Your beautiful name, amen.

THERE'S A PROPER WAY TO CONDUCT CHURCH. One so rare I've rarely seen it, since I have never run a church. Now, all my small church groups have done religion properly. So folks with me always experience religion in a healthy fashion. But the reality of life is that nearly all churches have a human concentration. Leads to religion that exults the pastor and people and not the Trinity. No matter that They pull away, since the church is all about human adoration. Jesus addresses this: “All of you praise me with your words, but you never really think about me." (Mark 7:6). Of course, He's speaking to the Pharisees here, trying to wrap their minds around their major human weakness. But there's a take away here for us for sure. Our church ought to be so focused upon THINKING about Jesus, the Leader of Church. Find a church or create one that has a sole focus of adoring the Christ. That shall reward you and all with incredible joy and hopefulness about experiencing the lovely touch of the Master. Oh, fair Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to align with a church that centers upon You, the Head of the church. In Your name, amen.
Sunday, April 12, 2015
SO HERE'S HOW IT CAN PLAY FOR YOU. Respond to Him and enjoy His favor to rest upon you today./ That's His longing Heart for your needy soul. Allow Him to reach your person with His great power./ And then find Him appearing strongly upon you so that you can share in His glory./ Happens to be the course that works best for all of us when we can simply remember His power to save.
HAPPILY, WE CAN TREASURE THE ACTS OF THE CHRIST AND savor His awesome power that reigns today. All we gotta do, is pay attention to His words and then respond appropriately. Yep, that's it. Not real tough provided we are willin to capture the essence of His words. Find them here: "49 When the disciples saw Jesus walking on the water, they thought he was a ghost, and they started screaming. 50 All of them saw him and were terrified. But at that same time he said, “Don’t worry! I am Jesus. Don’t be afraid.” (Mark 6:49-50). So this account today is your ticket to life. Read it and do more than sigh. Consider this striking story and then respond today to His constant pleading for your soul. Know His longing to get you to Heaven where He can forever enjoy your fellowship. That's the best spot on the planet. Then you can forever join Heaven that resides in my soul. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to respond to Your love and talk back to You. In Your dear name, amen.
Saturday, April 11, 2015
IT SURE HELPS TO GATHER AN UNDERSTANDING regarding the might of the Messiah. Cause He reigns over all with absolute power to evaporate the world in an instant. Course won't be doing that anytime soon due to me; He's done it trillions of times with other worlds. But He has elected to keep this world around forever. Entirely due to yours truly. I shall live forever in this world since I don't age nor sin; never happened before on this planet or the others. So consider this: "41 Jesus took the five loaves and the two fish. He looked up toward heaven and blessed the food. Then he broke the bread and handed it to his disciples to give to the people. He also divided the two fish, so that everyone could have some. 42 After everyone had eaten all they wanted, 43 Jesus' disciples picked up twelve large baskets of leftover bread and fish. 44 There were five thousand men who ate the food." This passage so counts cause you can contemplate the wonder of the Saviour and just maybe attach better to Him. That's where happy life resides. Given that with this account you can clearly see that the Lord dwells with the level of fixing power that can easily correct any troublesome thing. So, go for it and always call upon Him to help ya. Forever Jesus, we do pray that You would kindly enable us to realize the great power You hold to make life great. In Your name, amen!
Friday, April 10, 2015
SO HERE'S HOW IT LOOKS, when ya can become willin to experience the extent of the Christ's love for you./ Know that He so longs, from the might of His infinite power, to allow you to feel His affection./ That measure of care that He so so wishes to bring down into your soul and revive it today./ Therefore, your duty now is to simply call upon Him to do just that so you can FEEL IT.
HELPS TO GRASP THE MEASURE OF THE CHRIST'S affection for people. Since He reigns over all with infinite power. A strength that longs to connect with the hearts of all and save them from the sin that pulls at their soul. Not mine, of course. But yours for sure. So I ask ya this day to ponder the feelings of the Messiah for your soul. We find this note: "34 When Jesus got out of the boat, he saw the large crowd that was like sheep without a shepherd. He felt sorry for the people and started teaching them many things." (Mark 6:34). So that's it. His affection for you all the time looks like this. No matter how ugly you act, He shall always feel sorry for your human plight. Knowin something way better awaits you if only you can get a clue. So deeply understand this truth of the Lord's longing for your heart and respond to Him today! Awesome Christ, we do pray that You would kindly help us to strongly feel your deep love your us. In Your lovely name, amen. Peace of Christ to you.

NOT A HARD JOB. At all. Since right now, thanks to the disdain of so many for the salvation of the Trinity, there steams into Hell a steady run of souls goin there forever. Absolutely forget the notion that you're a dog. Not how life works. Have a brain and learn from this passage: "4 But Jesus said, “Prophets are honored by everyone, except the people of their hometown and their relatives and their own family.” 5 Jesus could not work any miracles there, except to heal a few sick people by placing his hands on them. 6 He was surprised that the people did not have any faith." (Mark 6:4-6). What the Master addresses here is the so common reality that few choose faith. Instead way preferring Hell forever. That's there option. But you, my dear friend, can so play it differently. Just choose faith. Absolute Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to be people of faith so we can be with You forever. In Your name, amen.

DA JAIRUS STORY IS ONE OF GREAT JOY. Given that his daughter got instantly healed due to his faith./ So we can this day share in this great happiness and simply participate in the very same way./ Yep, so doable when ya simply call upon our dear Saviour and treasure His infinite power longing/ To reach your heart for the cause of rescuing folks about you. They so need your attention!
DA JAIRUS STORY IS ONE I PRAY UPON MY KNEES EVERY MORNING AROUND 3AM. And why? Cause it's such a lovely story of how our dear Master can easily heal someone from death. Piece of cake for Him. But we, happily, can enjoy this story and savor the beauty of how the awesome Messiah reaches the needy to rescue them. Consider this: "After Jesus had sent them all out of the house, he took the girl’s father and mother and his three disciples and went to where she was. 41-42 He took the twelve-year-old girl by the hand and said, “Talitha, koum!”[g] which means, “Little girl, get up!” The girl got right up and started walking around. Everyone was greatly surprised. 43 But Jesus ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened. Then he said, “Give her something to eat.” (Mark 5:40-43). So the callin falls upon our hearts this day. Do ya want to share in His fearsome ability to heal others through you? I've done it for sure. So do it! Our precious Saviour, we do ask that You would please help us to have this level of faith. In Your fearsome name, amen!
Monday, April 6, 2015
WE GET TA ENJOY THE MAJESTY OF THE LOVELY CHRIST AGAIN. Yep, finding him healing in His magical style, we see the wonder to His touch. The story again holds promise for the beauty of faith within a person. Somebody with a brain. We see the story read this way: "30 At that moment Jesus felt power go out from him. He turned to the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 His disciples said to him, “Look at all these people crowding around you! How can you ask who touched you?” 32 But Jesus turned to see who had touched him. 33 The woman knew what had happened to her. She came shaking with fear and knelt down in front of Jesus. Then she told him the whole story. 34 Jesus said to the woman, “You are now well because of your faith. May God give you peace! You are healed, and you will no longer be in pain.” (Mark 5:30-34). So hear we humans get to encounter a precious drawing aside the infinite Christ and see Him heal. It feels great. Especially, of course, to her. But the obvious take away for us is to somehow live the same sort of life. Not worries, ya cannot possibly live it like me, but ya sure can perform life like her. Be a person of faith! Our dear Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to have this level of faith. In Your dear name, amen.

SO THIS DAY THERE AWAITS SOME GREAT PROMISE FOR THOSE willin to participate in the likings of Heaven./ It appears just as we read in this Jesus passage regarding the might of Him to rejoin our need./ He, of course, awaits our interest in seeing this good stuff done provided we can just build faith./ Since faith happens to be the true currency that the Messiah treasures to allow Him to intervene for good.
ONE OF THE WONDROUS THINGS ABOUT OUR LORD, is His sweet ability to fix everything instantly; He knows how. Since He made everything we see today out of nothing. Yep, that's His amazing capability. So the vast need today is for everyone to gather in their mind the promise of the Christ and then participate in His deep need to see it all play out right. That's His longin. We find this: "39 Jesus got up and ordered the wind and the waves to be quiet. The wind stopped, and everything was calm. 40 Jesus asked his disciples, “Why were you afraid? Don’t you have any faith?” 41 Now they were more afraid than ever and said to each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!” (Mark 4:39-41). The entertaining portion of this account happens to be in the way people respond to the great power of the Messiah. No surprise. Since people are people. Frail souls that find His preeminence way tough to fathom. But so doable. So our callin this day is to simply fully trust His interest in doing this very same thing among us. Great Jesus, we do pray that You would kindly help us to have strong faith so You can work among us. In Your name, amen.

THERE'S CERTAINLY CONTENT IN SCRIPTURE that bears appreciation regarding how the Kingdom can appear. When sown properly. We get this assurance from the Christ: "30 Finally, Jesus said: What is God’s kingdom like? What story can I use to explain it? 31 It is like what happens when a mustard seed is planted in the ground. It is the smallest seed in all the world. 32 But once it is planted, it grows larger than any garden plant. It even puts out branches that are big enough for birds to nest in its shade." (Mark 4:30-32). What the Lord seeks to explain here is the truth that God's kingdom can in fact be grown before you. All that's needed is to sow it right and then foster the growth. Knowing that it rises most assuredly and then become something of significant size and influence. The magic of God appearing amidst us. I've done this many times in life and know it works so well. So the question for you is, do ya want to enjoy this? Sweet Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to sow Your kingdom well in this world. In Your name, amen.

TO BE SURE, there remains an incredibly strong pull upon ya from Satan to be ever dull./ Since you're tempted to sin constantly, this tug always yanks you toward Hell and you must fight it./ If ya ever hope to escape Hell and be one of the rare ones with wisdom willing to gain the sight of Jesus./ Know that He longs for you to grasp this and find His care that can way defeat Satan in you.
THERE'S A UNIVERSAL TRUTH WORTH CONTEMPLATING. It's the fact that people have a strong pull to be forever stupid. Not in terms of making a living or having a mate, but in terms of escaping Hell. I say this because now nearly everybody lands in Hell forever. Not a pleasant place to. When ya have an option. How can this be? Consider this outlook that the Christ presents: “These people will look and look, but never see. They will listen and listen, but never understand." (Mark 4:12). What the Messiah explains here is the dominant reason nearly all go to Hell. As Satan constantly works diligently within everyone to make this so. And nearly all cooperate, to his glee. But you can play it differently. By constantly fighting his pull and choosing the better course that our lovely Master constantly offers you. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to see well and listen to You well. In Your name, amen.

SO HERE'S HOW IT CAN APPEAR. To fathom the mystery of Jesus' infinite understand of true religion./ Yep, it looks exactly as He teaches in Mark and, joyfully, proposes to you and me to make our person./ Not hard at all. Provided you can fight Satan in you always and hold tight to His dear edict./ That awaits your heart and mine to so treasure for the cause of connecting with a fine life that connects.
IT ALWAYS HELPS TO PONDER SCRIPTURE TO BETTER UNDERSTAND LIFE. Since, happily, the Messiah has been so kind to us to explain in detail the nature of His worldview. The one that truly matters. Since He out of thin air created our world for you to live in it. And, at your birth, smiled at the prospect of what your life could become. Consider this: "27 Jesus finished by saying, “People were not made for the good of the Sabbath. The Sabbath was made for the good of people. 28 So the Son of Man is Lord over the Sabbath.” (Mark 2:27-28). So what is the Christ gettin at here? The notion, of great importance, that we are to use common sense in matters of religion. Knowing, for sure, that people, all but yours truly, shall always pull for legalism. Somethin that the lovely Lord despises. So think like Him and enjoy a blessed life. Awesome Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to be wise and know real religion is all about caring for others. In Your holy name, amen.

GETTIN ONE'S HEAD ON STRAIGHT IN MATTERS OF FAITH, happens to be key to finding a firm walk with the Christ. Since He offers a quite palatable style of living. Provided you can attach your hearts to His ambition for your soul. Think not it should ever be difficult. Consider this: "17 Jesus heard them and answered, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor, but sick people do. I didn’t come to invite good people to be my followers. I came to invite sinners.” (Mark 2:17). And that, my dear pal, is the point. What the Messiah seeks is everyone to consider themselves permanently ill apart from Heaven. And that's the course to Heaven. A way happy place. I know, cause all souls in Heaven live eternally in my soul. Yep, Jesus selected that place for them all. So, get your head on decidely well, and follow the Master as a permanently sick soul desperate for His constant healin. Fair Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to always know we're sinners in deep need of You. In Your precious name, amen.

HEAR FROM YOURS TRULY. The faith king upon the earth. Faith is everything to rescue those in need./ Yep, you exist upon the earth primarily to serve others to heal and experience sweet peace./ So attend to simply calling out to Jesus and beg Him to make you the servant of others./ Trust me, this works absolutely so well when ya simply allow our dear Lord to use you to heal.
YEAH, THIS DAY YOU STAND IN A HAPPY PLACE. Cause the sweet faith before you awaits your attention. A faith that rescues all in need as Jesus awaits your kind attention to helping others. He longs fiercely to see you personally attend to the need about you. Ponder this: "Jesus was still teaching 3 when four people came up, carrying a crippled man on a mat. 4 But because of the crowd, they could not get him to Jesus. So they made a hole in the roof[b] above him and let the man down in front of everyone. 5 When Jesus saw how much faith they had, he said to the crippled man, “My friend, your sins are forgiven.” (Mark 2:3-5). So here's your model. Take from the no sin dude who constantly feel the glory of Jesus in my person starving for your faith growth. It ain't brain surgery to do it right. Get a life. Simply allow this passage to pierce your heart and drive you to victorious faith dat heals like this. Feels real good. Oh, powerful Jesus, please kindly grab out hearts to be about rescuing all in need. In Your majestic name, amen! I pray that God shall open Heaven and pour out His glory upon ya like a storm to build your faith.

NOW THERE'S A WAY TO DO IT. Properly viewed, it looks something like pleading with the Messiah to solve one's problems. We find it spelled out this way with a lovely ardor: "40 A man with leprosy[g] came to Jesus and knelt down.[h] He begged, “You have the power to make me well, if only you wanted to.” 41 Jesus felt sorry for[i] the man. So he put his hand on him and said, “I want to! Now you are well.” 42 At once the man’s leprosy disappeared, and he was well." (Mark 1:41-42). So here's how it's done if ya care to go to Heaven. Not don't feel alone if ya like to sin and prefer Hell, since most do. But should ya care to play the game right, put your heart toward this sweet example and just do it. Making the outcome a sure thing. I've done it many times, having seen more miracles than anyone ever and, I assure ya, you can so do this.

HOW TO PRAY. The most important idea of life that can so alter your being when ya do it right./ Because the prayer opportunity constantly awaits ya and the other 6 billion souls in the world ready/ To do it and connect with a hungry Jesus who longs to hear your words at any time you can pull it off./ So this day be often about the important presence of callin upon the Christ to enter your heart and change ya.
NOW, HOPEFULLY, YOU ANSWER THE TRINITY'S CALL UPON YOUR HEART TO PRAY. Since they constantly pull at your soul to do that. And most folks, tragically, ignore that beckoning on their way to Hell. So why this prayer tugging? Due to the reality of life that the Trinity above all treasure communication from you to Them. We find a proper understanding of prayer from the Messiah this way: "35 Very early the next morning, Jesus got up and went to a place where he could be alone and pray. 36 Simon and the others started looking for him. 37 And when they found him, they said, “Everyone is looking for you!” (Mark 1:35-37). Seems the apostles were surprised to find Him up to this. That's dumb. But, they were human and subject to thinkin He operated like them. Not so. Instead, in this passage we find the appealing example of the Christ seriously praying to the Father to help Him. Not that He needed it. Or did He? I suggest, very much, that most of all Jesus longed for private communion with the Father to gain relief from the trials of His life. We can so do the same. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to prayer often and experience Your help. In Your name, amen.
Saturday, March 28, 2015
IT'S FUN TO CONSIDER THE IMPACT OF THE CHRIST. To discover how people found Him in their midst. That, in itself, speaks strongly regarding His deity. And gettin that side of the Christ can really bring home a valuable understanding to better grasp just what He can do for ya this day. We find it put this way: "22 Everyone was amazed at his teaching. He taught with authority, and not like the teachers of the Law of Moses." (Mark 1:22). That amazement can strike home for us when we just fathom how people think. When they get struck this hard by a teacher, it becomes fairly obvious something exciting goes on here. And, if we're smart, we can participate via scripture and prayers. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to enjoy Your great teaching and walk with You. In Your name, amen. Peace of the Spirit to you.

HERE'S HOW IT'S DONE. Making yourself, by His dear power, into His glorious image./ Becoming that sort of person who can read Mark and implement His dear mission./ Not impossible by any means when ya can allow Him to thrust His great touch into our life./ The result? Others get saved to spend eternity in Heaven, which is my soul forever.
THERE'S OPPORTUNITY THAT AWAITS ANY SOUL INTERESTED IN THE SAVIOUR'S MISSION. Looks like this: ya simply humble your heart to attend to His mission. One that stirs not only your soul, but that of all who ya reach. Since lovely salvation awaits them and you. So rad! It's the nature of doin what catches the precious heart of the Christ. Read it like this: "17 Jesus said to them, “Come with me! I will teach you how to bring in people instead of fish.” (Mark 1:17). Yeah, that's the nature of what thrills the Christ before your heart. So make the decision to become sort of like me and do it. Having led numerous souls to live over the years, trust me. It can be so done. By you! Yeah, just humble your heart to His ambition to save souls and make Him so glad that you have decided to do it! Oh, dear Jesus, we do ask that You, in Your incredible might, can guide us to lead souls to life in You. In Your awesome name, amen!

QUITE AN INTERESTING ACCOUNT OF HOW SATAN TEMPTED JESUS. Especially due to the reality that trillions of years ago Jesus created Satan from thin air. Yep, Satan lives in all but me today cause that's his wicked job. And Jesus, of course, favors that to the extreme as he knows everyone but me must be tempted to sin. So consider this: "12 Right away God’s Spirit made Jesus go into the desert. 13 He stayed there for forty days while Satan tested him. Jesus was with the wild animals, but angels took care of him." (Mark 1:12-13). Now this happens to be, next to the crucifixion, the toughest life experience for a person outside of Satan's rapes of me. So hats off to the lovely Messiah for the beautiful way He allowed Satan to bite on Him for forty long days for all of us. So sweet. Because, when ya ponder the majestic way that Jesus tolerated the Satan He created to knaw at Him for such a time, ya get to treasure His beautiful discipline for you and me. Awesome Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to adore You for Your sacrifice for all the world in this way. In Your lovely name, amen.

AHHUH, IT CAN BE HAD. If we become a people willing to follow the dear model the Christ set before us./ It looks fairly simple when we can charge our thinkin to the best gospel: the book of Mark./ It's the lovely pattern of action life that speaks in American action language./ So all we need to do it to simply read it and follow the pattern the Messiah has set before us for eternity.
IT BEARS NOTE TO UNDERSTAND HOW THE CHRIST ALTERED LIFE. Cause His appearance came not only with Him, but the way powerful Spirit that appeared upon Him. And that, my friends, happens to be the might that charged His touch. And, happily, it also happens to be the magic that awaits all of us. Consider this: "10 As soon as Jesus came out of the water, he saw the sky open and the Holy Spirit coming down to him like a dove. 11 A voice from heaven said, “You are my own dear Son, and I am pleased with you.” (Marke 1:10-11). His baptism ought to drive us in the same direction regarding how religion should be done. We can participate. Provided we are willin to accept His style of living. It means calling upon and welcoming the Spirit to empower. That drives life within us. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to call upon Your Spirit to provide the life he longs to provide. In Your name, amen.
Tuesday, March 24, 2015
YEAH, YA GET IT WHEN YOU CAN THINK LIKE THE TRINITY. Take it from somebody who has led numerous souls to faith this way. It really isn't hard. But you do best to take counsel from Jesus regarding how to do it. Ponder this: "5 When you are with unbelievers, always make good use of the time. 6 Be pleasant and hold their interest when you speak the message. Choose your words carefully and be ready to give answers to anyone who asks questions." (Colossians 4:5-6). The style ya ought to use in winning the lost is behave in just this manner. It works. I've done it numerous times and led quite a few to life forever. As the only person in the world with all the souls in Heaven living in my soul, be careful to implement this idea. Ya see, Paul and Jesus present this for your attention. Do it right. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would kindly help us to share the faith in this winnin style. In Your name, amen. Peace of Christ to you.
Monday, March 23, 2015
THERE'S A WAY TO PRAY THAT I DO ALL THE TIME. It ain't really to tough provided you can attend to it properly. In the style that emulates Trinity thought. True, I've an unfair advantage cause the Trinity live in me. And I pray constantly cause I must. But you can be sort of like this, even tough ya sin. Consider this: "2 Never give up praying. And when you pray, keep alert and be thankful." There it is. How to pray. The key is to always do it often, and be thankful often when you get to praying. Knowing that Heaven hungers for your prayers 24 x 7. Since they shall always reside upon your head, competing with Satan pulling ya the other direction. Lovely Jesus, we do pray that You would help us all to pray often and with gratitude. In Your name, amen.

LEARNING TO PARENT THE CORRECT WAY IS DOABLE. It really ain't too hard to begin the nurturing approach./ Since kids thrive on that sort of attention. As children, like all humans, delight with encouragement./ Of course Satan, who shall always dwell strongly in you, pulls hard for you to belittle your kids./ But you can do it right and force yourself to be all about loving them and forever inspiring them to do good.
BEING A PARENT HAS A SIZEABLE IMPACT UPON THE WORLD. Cause kids affect others and their parents have a major opportunity to raise them right. Trust me. I have done this so well with my kids who hardly sin and are living lives that will have a big impact upon the world for good. Consider this: "21 Parents, don’t be hard on your children. If you are, they might give up." (Colossians 3:21). This verse makes an appeal that most parents, the typical weak ones, need. But know there are far better ways to raise children into people that can live fantastic lives and make you so proud. If you really want a detailed guide, check out my parenting book on Amazon.com. But here, just learn to be a parent who nurtures their children rather than look for what they do wrong. That's such stupid lifestyle. Children truly flourish when their parents live lives focused upon what they do right and speak encouraging words to them.

THERE STANDS IN LIFE SOME NICE WAY TOWARD LIFE. It appears in obeying teaching upon the notion that loving others is really all that matters upon day end. To know it, you can simply take a gander at this sort of idea: "13 Put up with each other, and forgive anyone who does you wrong, just as Christ has forgiven you. 14 Love is more important than anything else. It is what ties everything completely together." (Colossians 3:13-14). Yeah, that's all that's needed this day to arrive at the sweet spot of serving others more than you. Making the Creators so happy with you. So put your heart to the plow and be thinking this way toward lifting up those about you and making them happy with their struggle. Knowing that everybody must wrestle with life no matter their state. Grand Jesus, we do ask that You would kindly help us to be this forgiving and loving. In Your dear name, amen.
Friday, March 20, 2015
FINDING THE AVENUE FOR LIFE CAN BE HAD. Since the Christ so wants to share that with all./ But, tragically, Satan, whose always in you, doesn't want to see that happen ever. That's his job./ Yet with a contrite heart willing to reach for the Messiah you can find His sweet help this day./ And know that happens to be the constant longing from Him that He so wants you to share.
OPPORTUNITY AWAITS US ALL. It appears in a mysterious way within the Christ. Not only is He the key to God’s mystery, but all wisdom and knowledge are hidden away in him. Many rarely access what happens to be so close to all our hearts. So the demand upon our beings is to realize and connect with this source of exuberant livin. We find this description of where it's at: "And they will truly know Christ. Not only is he the key to God’s mystery, 3 but all wisdom and knowledge are hidden away in him." (Colossians 2:2-3). The end of this verse explains the vast life available to all; simply call upon the Christ to pour it out on you and then expect to gain these gems. Since He would never care to hide any of it from anybody willin to stretch to experience the joy of finding this sort of enlightenment. He's so ready to land it upon ya. Dear Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to be open to Your help in this way. In Your name, amen.
Thursday, March 19, 2015
WE FIND A STIRRING EXPLANATION OF THE ROLE JESUS PLAYS IN LIFE. It reads astoundingly, sending all toward that dear place of admiring Him for His glory. We find this account: 16 Everything was created by him, everything in heaven and on earth, everything seen and unseen, including all forces and powers, and all rulers and authorities. All things were created by God’s Son, and everything was made for him." (Colossians 1:16). Here we find the glorious description of the preeminent power of the Messiah over all of life. Since He made everything and rules over it all. Placing whomever He wishes into places of power upon the earth. Given His wishes, He can do anything He deems fair over it all and we get to enjoy the blessed outcome. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would please turn our hearts to often admiring Your majesty. In Your name, amen.
Wednesday, March 18, 2015
YOU CAN REACH THE MOST PRECIOUS WISDOM KNOWN TO MAN by simply calling upon the Spirit to help you./ He, of course, 24 x 7 awaits your interests and stands ready to place His lovely touch upon your person./ Making you into a way wise and insightful person ready to make incredible impacts for good upon the world./ So the question this day is: do ya want to do it or do ya prefer ignorance?
THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY AVAILABLE IN LIFE THAT AWAITS. Somethin attainable with help from Heaven. Ya see, the way true wisdom flows happens to be surprising. Since the world suggests it is derived from human cleverness. But scripture paints a way different picture: "9 We have not stopped praying for you since the first day we heard about you. In fact, we always pray that God will show you everything he wants you to do and that you may have all the wisdom and understanding that his Spirit gives." (Colossians 1:9). So Paul prays this; that the Spirit can provide immense wisdom and understanding. Talk about euphoric potential. That's how it feels when ya connect with this style of thinkin. So your job is one of praying this way for yourself and others, allowing the Spirit to enter your and their worlds and create lasting qualities that happen to be priceless. Dear Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to pray to the Spirit for this sort of great life. In Your name, amen.

PEACE REMAINS A DAUNTING DIFFICULTY FOR MANY. Due to the ongoing challenge of living life. There's always something to bother us. But we do find teaching about how best to address the concern. It reads like this: "6 Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. 7 Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel." (Phillippians 4:6-7). The answer, not surprisingly, is to pray for help in all worries. Then you can in turn experience peace from God that alters all fears. Since He ain't bothered by anything; He can fix all fears instantly if you only turn to Him for help. The dynamic resounds like this: you pray and ya gain a peace level that simply can't be had in this world. Holy Father, we do ask that You would help us to pray for peace. In Jesus name, amen.
Monday, March 16, 2015
HELL REALLY AIN'T THAT BAD. Reason being? The Father and Jesus created Hell as a spot where folks can continue the joyful life of sinning. And that's what most folks love to do. So Hell is enjoyable forever for most. But heed my view: Heaven is a million time better. Though way tougher to enter. Consider Paul's warning about Hell: "18 I often warned you that many people are living as enemies of the cross of Christ. And now with tears in my eyes, I warn you again 19 that they are headed for hell! They worship their stomachs and brag about the disgusting things they do. All they can think about are the things of this world." (Phillipians 3:18-19). Paul, heartily, justly warns all about the dangers of Hell as an eternal destination. But please, take my warning even stronger as I know this moment every ten seconds or so souls are packing into Hell. But, thanks to Jesus and the Father, that place is infinite so there's plenty of space. Yet the key question today is do you want to get stuck there and enjoy seeing just my stuff Satan placed there, or do ya want to arrive at Heaven. Your choice. Powerful Jesus, we do pray that You in Your sweet glory would please help us to stretch in faith to find Heaven. In Your awesome name, amen.
Saturday, March 14, 2015
DARING TO THINK LIKE GOD. That's the opportuity and challenge before us all regarding faith./ The pleasing side to this endeavor appears how you can achieve it and no longer be a religous waif./ All ya need to do is center your thinking and religous talk upon one thing: Jesus./ Then ya enter the lovely realm of feelin good and knowing for sure your path is all about us.
SO WHAT'S IT LOOK LIKE WHEN YOU CAN SIMPLIFY THE FAITH? Well, it appears in a fairly understandable thread that gets missed by most. But how? When scripture proffers the notion time and again in the gospels. Ya don't have to be a brain surgeon to look at the Bible and realize the gospel reside at the center. But maybe better to hear Paul's outlook: "10 All I want is to know Christ and the power that raised him to life. I want to suffer and die as he did, 11 so that somehow I also may be raised to life." (Phillippians 3:10). He makes it clear. The essence of faith happens to be largely about deeply understanding the Messiah. That's why I always teach the gospel of Mark to others when I lead them to faith. You should do that same. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to center our religion upon You. In Your name, amen.
Thursday, March 12, 2015
THERE'S AN ATTRACTIVE AXIOM THAT WARRANTS EXAMINATION. It's the notion that connecting with the Christ can lead to vast light rushin through your being. We find this: "Try to shine as lights among the people of this world, 16 as you hold firmly to[d] the message that gives life." (Phillipians 2:15). So how's this constructed in a person't life? Well, it only really occurrs when ya give way to the Spirit of the Messiah enterin your space and changing you into that shining soul. Sending sparks out from you. That's an eternal dynamic readily available to you this day that awaits your attention to call upon the Lord to realize. Creating striking light that can shine brilliantly from your person. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to shine with Your help. In Your name, amen. Peace of Christ to you.

BECOMING LIKE HIS HUMBLE NATURE. So rad. He awaits your participation in His likeness./ Decide this day to allow Him to often enter your heart and guide you into becomin that sort of servant./ Then you can rejoice at His likeness in your heart that changes you into His sort of person./ Making you a worker for His kingdom upon the earth and allowing Him to guide you.
A HUMBLE HEART IS TRULY A GREAT TREASURE BEFORE THE LORD. He loves that. Cause it comes from Him. Very Lovely. So your action this day ought to be about growing in that regard; livin right. You can do it by practicing this sort of teaching: "3 Don’t be jealous or proud, but be humble and consider others more important than yourselves. 4 Care about them as much as you care about yourselves 5 and think the same way that Christ Jesus thought." (Phillipians 2:3-4). By acting out this sort of faith you get transformed into the likeness of the Christ: He taught this very thing again and again. The goal bein for people to be like Him. Changing life here into something beautiful, when existence is handled this way. So you ought to join me in staring at His wonder of humility and be changed into His dear likeness. Powerful Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to be humble, like You. In Your dear name, amen.
Tuesday, March 10, 2015
ONE OF THE GREAT TRUTHS OF LIFE, is that dying and going to Heaven is way superior to this life. Why? Cause God and Jesus have designed life in Heaven as much more powerful and joyful than in the body. Hence, we find Paul talking about his own personal desire to leave this world. We find him put it this way: "I want to die and be with Christ, because that would be much better. 24-25 But I know that all of you still need me. That’s why I am sure I will stay on to help you grow and be happy in your faith." (Phillipians 1:23-25). You too can think this way. I have a friend who recently died from illness and that broke my heart. But I know he's way happier now in Heaven. I, for one, don't by any means understand the capability souls have in Heaven, but it sure makes sense that Jesus would make life there truly great since He can. Awesome Jesus, we ask that we can think like Paul and look forward to Heaven. In Your name, amen.
Monday, March 9, 2015
WE FIND IN SCRIPTURE THE TRUTH THAT ANGELS DID JOIN THE CHRIST. So what's that mean to us? Do they today visit the earth? Well, yeah. I mean, what else do angels have to do? So it stands to reason that they travel about doin good among us, waiting for our ability to recognize them. Hard to do, when Satan is in ya. We find this description of their work: "2 Suddenly a strong earthquake struck, and the Lord’s angel came down from heaven. He rolled away the stone and sat on it. 3 The angel looked as bright as lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards shook from fear and fell down, as though they were dead." (Matthew 28:2-4). This visit by angels to attend to the Christ presents the winsome idea that angels do make a presence in the world at all times. So our task is to be so sensitive as to recognize their work among us and respond to them. Maybe learning that they do. Lord Jesus, we pray that You would give us sensitive enough hearts to see when angels appear among us. In Your name, amen.
Sunday, March 8, 2015
SO HERE'S HOW IT'S DONE. Taking communion with Lord in your presence is about as good as it gets./ Since He constantly waits for folks in this world to share in such a beautiful fellowship./ Finding in it the stuff of glory that can fall upon you and others when ya choose to partake./ The end result? You and them get transformed simply by enjoying His style of fellowship.
THERE'S SHEER BEAUTY IN THE TAKING OF THE CUP. Why? Cause that's your opportunity upon the earth to commune with the Saviour in a truly lovely way. Know that He waits upon ya to take this regularly. And do it with others, of course. Then you and they can share in the most sweet communion with the Christ known to man. That changes all for the good. We find this description of the practice: "27 Jesus picked up a cup of wine and gave thanks to God. He then gave it to his disciples and said, “Take this and drink it. 28 This is my blood, and with it God makes his agreement with you. It will be poured out, so that many people will have their sins forgiven." (Matthew 26:27-28). So here we find an explanation of the practice that presents it workin so well. It ain't hard. Just do it. Great Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to often share in this supper and so unite with You. In Your dear name, amen. Peace of the Spirit to you.
Saturday, March 7, 2015
TO ARRIVE AT A MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CHRIST, you ought to approach Him in a style He promotes. It's the sort of care that appears lovely. Something that presents adoration. He deserves that, of course. We find this description of how it ought to be done: "Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing for me. 11 You will always have the poor with you, but you won’t always have me. 12 She has poured perfume on my body to prepare it for burial.[b] 13 You may be sure that wherever the good news is told all over the world, people will remember what she has done. And they will tell others." (Matthew 26:10-13). What the Christ presents here is that admiration of Him warrants the sort of relationship He desires. Since He's God. Hence the proper livin style sure ought to regularly included sheer passion about his ability to respond to you and others. Fair Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to adore You. In Your name, amen.

THANKFULLY, THE LORD HAS BEEN SO KIND to lay out just what He expects from people to please Him./ It looks just like what He plainly lays out in scripture, something that rings intuitively true./ Making the bearer of such good tidings happy to be sure as the Christ shall surely assist./ Turning the equation toward bringing Heaven sort of life to the earth and relieving many of pain.
WE DO GET TO SEE WHAT TURNS THE HEART OF JESUS TOWARD PEOPLE. It appears in scripture as an explanation describing the sort of life that gains a response at Heaven's door. Where everybody, but me, shall surely have a chance to attend. So it bears consideration just what the Lord hopes shall occur. We find it described this way: “My father has blessed you! Come and receive the kingdom that was prepared for you before the world was created. 35 When I was hungry, you gave me something to eat, and when I was thirsty, you gave me something to drink. When I was a stranger, you welcomed me, 36 and when I was naked, you gave me clothes to wear. When I was sick, you took care of me, and when I was in jail, you visited me.” (Matthew 25:34-36). Here we find the type of life that the Christ desires to gain entrance into Heaven. It really ain't too difficult to do provided you can make it a lifestyle. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to live this way. In Your name, amen.
Tuesday, March 3, 2015
FOR A VERY LONG TIME, THERE'S BEEN WIDESPREAD interest in a soon second coming of the Messiah. And rightly so, that's found in new testament writings regularly. Given our world has been a sinful place, it stands to reason the world should end as trillions have and the Lord ought to return, as happens in previous worlds. Jesus says this: "36 No one knows the day or hour. The angels in heaven don’t know, and the Son himself doesn’t know.[g] Only the Father knows. 37 When the Son of Man appears, things will be just as they were when Noah lived." (Matthew 24:36-37). This certainly has been the case in previous worlds, that in time the world ends and the Christ returns. However, know this in our current world: it ain't ever gonna end. Due entirely to yours truly. Because I live, the Father and Jesus are gonna let this one exist forever with me at the helm. So you can for sure forget about any second coming ever. Great Jesus, we ask that You would help us to live well for you and make the most of life now. In Your name, amen

HERE'S HOW IT LOOKS. To become someone that really cares and manages to pour out love upon the hearts./ Of those about you. Changing you and them into a people who experience not just your lovin kindness,/ But better yet, the sort of life transforming care of Heaven that forever waits upon you to share./ Allowing you and them to touch Heaven upon the earth and find the sort of joy that awaits.
WHEN IT COMES TO UNDERSTANDING THE FAITH, there's an answer worthy of contemplation. It rings so true when we allow our hearts to ponder it. To honestly care for others in a fashion that moves and supports them. This drives others toward that pleasant destination of love that can feel truly great. We find the Christ presenting the notion this way: "39 The second most important commandment is like this one. And it is, “Love others as much as you love yourself.” (Matthew 22:39). So allow these thoughts to consume your heart and then transcend relationships to be loving ones that propel you and them into the arms of Heaven. Cause they're waiting upon you to be busy about doing this sort of love and casting care upon the souls of those in need. Bringin life. Powerful Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to love like this. In Your name, amen. Peace of Christ to you.

WHEN YA CONSIDER WHAT FAITH OUGHT TO APPEAR LIKE, ya can figure this out through the gospel message; it's there before you. We find the Christ putting it this way: "37 Jesus answered: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. 38 This is the first and most important commandment." (Matthew 22:37). There ya have it. Religion is principally about one thing: loving God with an ardent, devoted heart. Nothin tricky. So how does this look? Well, it really ain't brain surgery. All you need to do is first in your heart, be given to speaking words of admiration to God regularly. He, of course, being God, enjoys that. So can you. Then find a church where the main focus is upon worship and prayer; not bible study. Biblical erudition can certainly be a path to Hell when done wrong. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to worship God well. In Your name, amen.

IT WARRANTS EXAMINATION TO SEE WHAT THE ANGER OF JESUS LOOKS LIKE. Cause He hasn't changed in personality for all eternity. So, understanding what makes Him furious can help us to stay on track toward the good stuff. As that feels better for all. We find this: "12 Jesus went into the temple and chased out everyone who was selling or buying. He turned over the tables of the moneychangers and the benches of the ones who were selling doves. 13 He told them, “The Scriptures say, ‘My house should be called a place of worship.’ But you have turned it into a place where robbers hide.” (Matthew 21:12-13). Seeing His disgust at simple money changing in the temple suggests He demands absolute purity in church. How does that look? A very heavy emphasis on worship and prayer and minimizing preaching and Bible study. Those things are dangerous as people can wax self righteous and anger the Messiah. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us emphasize the important things in church. In Your name, amen.

IT LOOKS LIKE THIS WHEN FOLKS WANT TO REACH THE SAVIOUR. He in turn shall always respond with mercy./ Resulting in healing for the fix to whatever ails you that Heaven can address./ Then you can happily be upon your way with a deep resolve that only happens to be found near Him./ And then He and you can enjoy sweet fellowship that shall go on throughout life unto Heaven.
WE FIND A CATCHING STORY REGARDING SOME PEOPLE who implored the Lord to heal them. What strikes here is they way they relentlessly pressed upon Him for help. The outcome is no surprise. See this account: "32 When Jesus heard them, he stopped and asked, “What do you want me to do for you?” 33 They answered, “Lord, we want to see!” 34 Jesus felt sorry for them and touched their eyes. Right away they could see, and they became his followers." (Matthew 20:32-34). We find in the verses the smart approach they took to get help; that can be ours. Provided we want to emulate such insistence and pursue the Christ to fix our ills. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to pursue you like these. In Your name, amen.

WITH ALL THE DEMANDS OF LIFE, sure is tough to be a regular servant of others; to be concerned with their plight. But we find in the Christ the mantra to be way about that lifestyle. And it sure makes sense. People so need that. Consider this teaching from the Messiah: "If you want to be great, you must be the servant of all the others. 27 And if you want to be first, you must be the slave of the rest. 28 The Son of Man did not come to be a slave master, but a slave who will give his life to rescue[e] many people." (Matthew 20:26-28). So what the Lord says here is the idea that caring for others happens to be the greatest thing ya can do. Don't feel alone. Since the Master so wants to help you upon the quest. So call on Him and then be busy caring for others beyond your own needs. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to serve others. In Your name, amen.

WHY THIS MATTERS MUCH REGARDING THE CRUCIFIXION OF THE CHRIST, is the fact that He's done this trillions of times. Imagine that, the Lord sufferin to that extent again and again. No matter that people managed to still kill Him in the most ignominous ways. We find this description: "18 We are now on our way to Jerusalem, where the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the teachers of the Law of Moses. They will sentence him to death, 19 and then they will hand him over to foreigners[a] who will make fun of him. They will beat him and nail him to a cross. But on the third day he will rise from death." (Matthew 20:18-19). Beauty. That's the whole point of His sacrifice. Something to be so glad about again in our world. Since He is willin to allow it no matter the extent of His sufferin. Hence, our response must be to rejoice and constantly allow our hearts to admire His sacrifice all for us. Fair Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to be grateful for your sacrifice this way. In Your name, amen.

TO CONNECT WITH THE SAVIOUR AND PARTICIPATE IN POOR CARIN. That's the vital approach that awaits ya./ All that needs to be done is to change your thinkin to understand that indeed this encourages the Lord. Then by all means participate in a way that really helps the needy, driving you into His arms./ And, happily, the ending should be you doin it and finding yourself connected to the lovely Lord.
WOULDN'T IT BE NICE TO FATHOM WHAT FIRES JESUS? Well, given He's the creator of our universe and author of life, it just might be helpful to fathom what drives Him. This can be done. We find this teachin that broadcasts His style of life: "21 Jesus replied, “If you want to be perfect, go sell everything you own! Give the money to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven. Then come and be my follower.” 22 When the young man heard this, he was sad, because he was very rich." (Matthew 19:21-22). And that's it. Not too hard. Just care for the poor, for that's the essense of what thrills the Messiah and you can participate in His caring for the poor if you merely jump on His soaring longing to care for them. Don't be like the rich boy who found himself so taken by wealth that he failed to part with at least a portion to care for those the Christ cares deeply for. You can do this. Awesome Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to share with the poor. In Your name, amen.
Monday, February 23, 2015
FORGIVENESS IS ONE OF THOSE MAGICAL APPROACHES THAT can so free the forgiver, even more than the forgiven soul. Why this works is due to the reality that harboring bad will can eat at ya. It's free to forgive. We find this statement from the Christ that describes His view: "21 Peter came up to the Lord and asked, “How many times should I forgive someone[e] who does something wrong to me? Is seven times enough?” 22 Jesus answered: Not just seven times, but seventy-seven times!" (Matthew 18:21-22). Peter, of course, takes the typical human view. The response of the Messiah is so outside human feeling. But way worth it. Cause when ya can often forgive, you not only strengthen relationships, you also free your heart to ponder more useful ideas. Fair Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to easily forgive. In Your name, amen.
Sunday, February 22, 2015
SO MANY CONSIDER SIN TO BE A MINOR PART OF LIFE that shall always be about./ How ridiculous such thinking is in the eyes of the Christ, Whose absolutely pure./ Thus the callin upon your life this day is to renew your battle against sin and become permanently more pure./ And allow the Messiah to savor the way you manage to avoid sin at all costs.
SIN IS SO COMMON AS EVERYBODY BUT ME IN THE WORLD DOES IT. And Satan in you sure helps the cause since that evil boy is sin. His temptations shall always press upon you. Something I don't ever experience. So take it from me, it's worth your while to ponder how greatly the Christ despises sin, so ya don't wax cavalier with the practice. Consider His counsel here: "8 If your hand or foot causes you to sin, chop it off and throw it away! You would be better off to go into life crippled or lame than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into the fire that never goes out. 9 If your eye causes you to sin, poke it out and get rid of it. You would be better off to go into life with only one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fires of hell." What the Messiah tells you here is that He absolutely hates all sin. But thankfully, He's a patient person who endures human sin, knowing it's always gonna be there. But take heed. You can indeed always fight sin and so way reduce how much it occurs in your life, making the Master way happy. Powerful Jesus, we do ask that You would help us not to sin. In Your name, amen.
Saturday, February 21, 2015
TO GET AN IDEA OF JUST WHAT THE CHRIST seeks regarding the style of humanity, you can look upon His teachings. He addresses the points in detail. One scripture spells it out: "I promise you this. If you don’t change and become like a child, you will never get into the kingdom of heaven. 4 But if you are as humble as this child, you are the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And when you welcome one of these children because of me, you welcome me." (Matthew 18:3-5). Here we find a dimension of living approach that can be inculcated. Unlike the natural urging, this dealing offers sweet purity that delights the Saviour. So try it out. Cause when ya managed to become childlike, you become so attractive to the Lord and He then longs to hold your hand. Our Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to be childlike. In Your name, amen.
Friday, February 20, 2015
WE FIND A DRAMATIC ACCOUNT OF A FRUSTRATED DAD. The Apostles were unable to heal his epilectic son. That sure made the dad incredibly discouraged, I suspect due to the fact that they had healed others. We find this response from the Christ: "17 Jesus said, “You people are too stubborn to have any faith! How much longer must I be with you? Why do I have to put up with you? Bring the boy here.” 18 Then Jesus spoke sternly to the demon. It went out of the boy, and right then he was healed." (Matthew 17:17-18). Here again, the obvious shortfall is a lack of faith. Ain't it interesting that faith is what fuels all such rescues? The obvious take away for us to always be in the business of seeking a bigger faith. Then when such a need arises, you have the edge to see great things happen. And the Messiah gets way pleased. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would increase our faith. In Your name, amen.

THERE'S A VAST OPPORTUNITY THAT AWAITS HUMANITY. Seen in the availability of the Lord of Life./ We find Him anytime so ready to receive the prayers of all and act upon their needs and plight./ The equation happens to be a Heavenly one that so transcends all measure of life about us./ So in return the mantra for you and all others is to respond favorably to this wondrous truss.
IT MAKES GREAT SENSE TODAY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE CHRIST LOOKS LIKE. Since He always awaits upon ya to talk back. Hence your obligation is to do that but even better to understand the nature of His being. How He looks. We find this valuable description: "17 Six days later Jesus took Peter and the brothers James and John with him. They went up on a very high mountain where they could be alone. 2 There in front of the disciples, Jesus was completely changed. His face was shining like the sun, and his clothes became white as light." (Matthew 17:17-18). Know this: the Messiah today appears the same way in glory. Thus, your calling is visualize as you speak to Him and expect His response along the same lines. Since ya can very well experience the wonder of His touch against your soul. Awesome Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to visualize Your majesty well. In Your name, amen.

ONE OF THE MORE HELPFUL ANGLES UPON life is to fully understand the calling of the Christ. Cause there happens to be some pretty good teachin on the topic. Nothing new. This has been distributed to people for trillions of years over the same number of worlds. But take this counsel from the person who's the reason why this is the last world. For I shall live forever in it. And when ya get to Heaven you can watch my life from there. We find the Master say thus: "If any of you want to be my followers, you must forget about yourself. You must take up your cross and follow me. 25 If you want to save your life,[e] you will destroy it. But if you give up your life for me, you will find it. 26 What will you gain, if you own the whole world but destroy yourself? What would you give to get back your soul?" (Matthew 16:24-26). So the measure here for your life is to be someone who enjoys the pain of self denial, carryin that cross happily. Then you can experience that joyful contact from the Messiah that He so longs to impart unto you. Fair Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to carry that cross with joy. In Your name, amen.
Sunday, February 15, 2015
THE IMPACT OF A BIG FAITH IS HUGE. We get to see this in many faith stories in the gospels. So why so much coverage on this faith stuff? Due to the reality that faith happens to be the fuel that thrills the Trinity and puts them in your corner. Like adding gas to a fire. We find this description of the woman who could not stop pleading with the Christ to heal her daughter: "28 Jesus answered, “Dear woman, you really do have a lot of faith, and you will be given what you want.” At that moment her daughter was healed." Talk about a happy soul here. She got exactly what she wished because she spoke in terms that so appealed to the Master. Hence the calling is yours; what ya gonna do about it? Holy Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to have strong faith that drives us to Your corner. In Your name, amen.
Saturday, February 14, 2015
REAL WORSHIP IS WAY MORE ABOUT PERSONAL PURITY than a fine performance. If taken properly from the Lord./ Why this counts so much is due to the Trinity's love of holiness since they don't sin, like yours truly./ Now most people sin a couple hundred times a day as they seek to navigate life./ Therefore, everyone must give purity its way proper place if ya get to wantin to do church right.
HERE'S SOME COUNSEL FROM THE NO SIN BOY. The way to ready yourself for church is way more about your purity than your dress or appearance. Granted, people love to admire beauty upon others and their wealth. But at the end of the day, if you want some really great worship in church, ya need to get real. We find this: "18 But the words that come out of your mouth come from your heart. And they are what make you unfit to worship God. 19 Out of your heart come evil thoughts, murder, unfaithfulness in marriage, vulgar deeds, stealing, telling lies, and insulting others." (Matthew 15:18-19). Here we get the Messiah's proper explanation of how to do church. Of course, in many churches He would not be allowed to speak with these sort of priorities. Since rarely do you find folks stretching to accomplish this sort of rad behaviour. Yet you really can do this with a bit of attention and persistence. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to remain pure. In Your name, amen.
Friday, February 13, 2015
RELIGION'S A FUNNY THING. The intent, of course, should be designed to lead folks toward personal goodness and the same for others. Seems to happen way too rarely. Mostly due to religion getting fashioned along human lines, rather than God's. We find the Christ putting it this way: “All of you praise me with your words, but you never really think about me. 9 It is useless for you to worship me, when you teach rules made up by humans.” (Matthew 15:8-9). The Messiah deals with the ongoin issue of people so often getting caught up in human adoration, and not His. A fairly easy thing to do since Satan loves this and he drives everybody this way. His job is to insure that religion's false so he can get as many to Hell as possible. Working pretty well these days. But you can be wise and hear the Lord here and be careful to do real religion that operates upon the obvious difference that He wants. Fair Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to live real religion that fully listens to you and not people in Your matters. In Your name, amen.

A LOVELY OPPORTUNITY AWAITS ANYBODY READY TO LEAP to the Christ Always walking on the water./ Know it, His way powerful reign over the earth so far exceeds the water walkin story that it can't compare./ This counts for us because the delightful opportunity of sharing in His glory is so ready for you./ Hence it's so time to be sure and take hold of this power today and enjoy that sort of radiance.
WE HAVE A FINE STORY IN THE STORM ACCOUNT. In this we get to see a sharp reaction from the apostles to the obviously frightening experience of their Lord walking on the water. Why this account matters has to do with the sheer majesty of the Christ in action. He thrills. We find this description: "31 Right away, Jesus reached out his hand. He helped Peter up and said, “You surely don’t have much faith. Why do you doubt?” 32 When Jesus and Peter got into the boat, the wind died down. 33 The men in the boat worshiped Jesus and said, “You really are the Son of God!” (Matthew 14:31-33). The contrast here between Peter's human faith struggle and striking presence of the Saviour goes a long ways toward illustrating His ability for us this day. No matter our present lack of faith, He remains ready to accomplish this very thing for us when we are willin to comply with the program. Wild Jesus, we ask that You would help us to have a bigger faith. In Your name, amen.
Wednesday, February 11, 2015
THIS STORY ILLUSTRATES THE WEALTH OF THE CHRIST. Finding people in need of food, He provided in a great way and fed them all. Not an easy task for a person. But a cinch for the Messiah. We find this description: "He looked up toward heaven and blessed the food. Then he broke the bread and handed it to his disciples, and they gave it to the people." Talk about some good times for the apostles to share in this abundance. They got to pass it all out to a hungry crowd. And, of course, the magic of this instant is that way Jesus created food out of thin air. No big deal for Him. The result, of course, is that all these folks came to deep faith in the Christ and went on to support Him. And the corrolary is ours; know that Jesus wishes to perform the same sort of blessing upon all our lives if we allow it to occur. Great Jesus, we do pray that You would please help us to trust Your ability to provide. In Your name, amen.
Tuesday, February 10, 2015
IN LIFE THERE EXISTS SOME GREAT OPPORTUNITIES FOR FRUITFULNESS. Fact is, you can turn your existence toward the work of savin souls for Jesus and do it quite well. This ain't brain surgery. Though it's hard to find, to be sure. We find this description of what it looks like: "8 But a few seeds did fall on good ground where the plants produced a hundred or sixty or thirty times as much as was scattered. 9 If you have ears, pay attention!" (Matthew 13:8-9). Now there's a number of angles on this good soil business. Partly in the soil of the receptor of the message; ya need that. But the bigger portion happens to be how you till the soil. To be sure, there's a way to do that works best. Simply teach others from a gospel and discuss it. That's it. Then you can see the soil quality in a person's life improve dramatically. Fair Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to be good soil people. In Your name, amen.
Monday, February 9, 2015
LEAVE IT TO PEOPLE TO WASTE LIFE FIGHTIN. Seems that Satan often manages to direct many to that end./ But, thankfully, we get to hear the voice of the Christ more effectively pronouncing the better path./ One where you can find relaxation that just can't be had in the throes of discord./ And when ya allow your heart to oppose arguing in favor of loving concern for others you arrive at life.
IT'S TRUE THAT ARGUMENTS RARELY CONTRIBUTE TO ANYTHING. I say this as a person who gets to hear my next door neighbors in my apartment regularly scream at one another. Satan loves this. Kind of amazin they can do this when the Trinity's glory lives next door. But that's people. The interesting side to this discussion is the perspective of the Christ. We find it put this way: "Any kingdom where people fight each other will end up ruined. And a town or family that fights will soon destroy itself." (Matthew 12:25). His point being that to find fullfillment in life, you'd better avoid fighting and attend to peace and support for others. The result being that when you behave for the cause of fidelity versus harranguing, you deliver a sound unity with others that can propel you and them toward places of joy and deep meaning. Holy Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to be peacemakers. In Your name, amen.
Sunday, February 8, 2015
IT DOES A SOUL GREAT GOOD TO PONDER THE WONDER of the Christ. Since He reigns 24 x 7 upon your head trying to persuade you to talk with Him. So we find this description of His glory: “Here is my chosen servant! I love him, and he pleases me. I will give him my Spirit, and he will bring justice to the nations." (Matthew 12:18). Here's how this helps you to walk properly with the Lord. When you meditate for a moment here and there on this sort of thing, it tends to alter your world view toward the proper angle. Making ya humble. And fact is that when you can allow your thoughts a time or two to hold these ideas within your mind, you get changed into a way better person. That's the very reason why I share this verse. Dear Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to think these ideas enough to get changed by Your lovely Spirit. In Your name, amen.
Saturday, February 7, 2015
IT'S TRUE THAT IN THE LORD'S MIND, mercy ranks way ahead of typical self centered religion./ When ya really want to live the holy life that delights the Trinity, you do manage to inculcate this idea./ And as a result become somebody that way pleases Jesus and draws you to places of deep meaning./ Ending up on you becoming that sweet soul who manages to care lovingly for others and delight them.
GIVEN THAT MANY FOLKS VIEW RELIGION AS A SOURCE OF SELF righteousness and the means to exult their own glory, I think they would find this teaching of the Christ as inappropriate. Here the Messiah shoots holes in the long standing view that religion ought to be far more about pondering how good we are versus the evil world at large. But that ain't the thinking at all of the Lord. Instead, he proferrs this view: "7 Don’t you know what the Scriptures mean when they say, “Instead of offering sacrifices to me, I want you to be merciful to others?” (Matthew 12:7). So what's really the main point here? Doesn't Jesus understand that such teachin defies the terribly important self righteous view that many hold and cherish? He don't care. Instead, the essence of this edict is for you to alter your world view into His. Becoming a soul who way treasures this idea that mercy trumps everything in life, way beyond religion. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to always have mercy at the center of our lives. In Your name, amen.
Friday, February 6, 2015
NO DOUBT LIFE CAN BE WEARYING AT TIMES. Why this happens to be is fairly self evident to anyone alive. But it don't have to be that way! Due to the happy reality that we share a Saviour prepared to intervene toward our rest. We find this: "28 If you are tired from carrying heavy burdens, come to me and I will give you rest. 29 Take the yoke[f] I give you. Put it on your shoulders and learn from me. I am gentle and humble, and you will find rest." (Matthew 11:28-29). The approach toward peace in Christ is actually fairly easy to achieve. Provided that you handles it according to His prescription. That means most of all turning to Him regularly and askin for His intercession into your world that you can share in that rest. Most holy Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to land in Your rest. In Your name, amen.
Thursday, February 5, 2015
THERE'S ACTUALLY APPROPRIATE FEAR IN THIS LIFE. True, fearing about much of anything is largely counterproductive since in the end there's little you can do to perfect this life. But, there's to be sure a healthy fear that warrants your attention. We find it described this way: "Instead, you should fear God who can destroy both your body and your soul in hell. 29 Aren’t two sparrows sold for only a penny? But your Father knows when any one of them falls to the ground. 30 Even the hairs on your head are counted. 31 So don’t be afraid! You are worth much more than many sparrows." (Matthew 10:28-31). So how does this mechanically work that God can destroy you eternally in Hell? Well, for starters, God made Hell as the physical place apart from this world (Heaven resides near the world) where He intends nearly all people to spend eternity due to their stupidity. And so today, every ten seconds or so, somebody enters Hell. (Of course yours truly is gonna change this dramatically eventually.) Whereas every ten minutes or so a soul arrives in Heaven. Hence your proper vantage sure ought to be busy often talking in heartfelt ways to God insuring that ya end up in Heaven. It's far happier. Great Jesus, we do ask You to please help us to keep talking to you humbly so we can avoid Hell. In Your name, amen.
Wednesday, February 4, 2015
NOW LETTIN SPIRIT TRUTH DEPART FROM LIPS CAN BE DONE. Question stands: Are ya willin to let it happen?/ The course to get there happens to be ready for you to run it provided that you dance it with the Spirit maven./ He of course longs for folks open to His arrival in their brains to pull of the glorious happening./ So your job this day is to know for sure that it can happen provided you get our of the way and do more than glancing.
IT CAN TRUTHFULLY BE SAID THAT the Spirit does want to provide you words to speak. I say this as one who has experienced this a number of times. Feels really great. But, of course, to get to that place requires some serious discipline that can only be achieved in a stalwart approach of deep humility. We find this description of the idea: "19 But when someone arrests you, don’t worry about what you will say or how you will say it. At that time you will be given the words to say. 20 But you will not really be the one speaking. The Spirit from your Father will tell you what to say." (Matthew 10:19-20). Just as the apostles received this sort of guidance from the Spirit, we for certain can experience the same. Provided you allow it. Awesome Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to allow the Spirit to speak through us. In Your name, amen.

IN LIFE THERE EXISTS A SHARP DICHOTOMY between the faith life and the one that more strongly pulls at all./ The quandry can best be expressed in flapping terms, since that's how life plays for everyone./ But when you buck up and decide to often ask for a bigger faith and then apply it constantly,/ You do enter a refreshing aura of life that can send you sailin toward healing and respite.
ONE OF THE MYSTERIOUS THINGS ABOUT POWERFUL FAITH, is the difficulty around inculcating the practice into your life. Since the Lord's invisible and all of life that pulls at ya does so with resounding physicality. Hence the callin upon your life is to often pry your heart away from Satan's clasp and stretch for a bigger faith. Know it ain't at all natural. We find this teachin on the topic: "20 A woman who had been bleeding for twelve years came up behind Jesus and barely touched his clothes. 21 She had said to herself, “If I can just touch his clothes, I will get well.” 22 Jesus turned. He saw the woman and said, “Don’t worry! You are now well because of your faith.” At that moment she was healed." (Matthew 9:20-22). What matters in this account is the sort automatic way this woman applied faith. Obviously, she'd been livin a life of deep faith prior. And you can do the very same thing by in a sense reaching out to the Master, just as she reached for His clothes. Mighty Jesus, we do pray that You would please help us to have a big, effective faith like this woman. In Your name, amen.
Sunday, February 1, 2015
A NICE ACCOUNT IS FOUND WHERE JESUS HEALS IN RESPONSE TO FAITH. That especially counts due to the reality of life that faith is the currency of this sort of success. We find the description put this way: "2 Some people soon brought to him a crippled man lying on a mat. When Jesus saw how much faith they had, he said to the crippled man, “My friend, don’t worry! Your sins are forgiven.” (Matthew 9:2). Had there been typical meager faith, I'm sure this dude wouldn't have been healed. But due to the huge faith that the Lord viewed, he got instantly fixed. Something we sure can do. The outstanding question for all is how badly do ya want this? Or, are you happy with a weak life apart from the healing power that awaits? Fair Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to become people of strong faith. In Your holy name, amen.

KNOWING HOW TO CALL UPON THE CHRIST for rescue happens to be the most valuable activity upon the earth./ Do entirely to His readiness to intervene on your behalf. Know He awaits your call 24 x 7./ Hence your duty is to remember the lovely account of how he rescued the apostles in the boat./ And then apply that to your needy life without any fear of reprisal by Satan./ Since Jesus is a trillion times more powerful than that evil boy.
IN THE THROES OF LIFE IT'S OFTEN HARD to surmise the appropriate potential of callin on the Christ. This due to constant Satan pressure in you to think otherwise. He despises the truth that the Messiah can rescue freely. But the happy reality is that ya can indeed experience the savin of the Lord provided you are willin to call upon Him. To see the extent of His powers, look here: "26 But Jesus replied, “Why are you so afraid? You surely don’t have much faith.” Then he got up and ordered the wind and the waves to calm down. And everything was calm. 27 The men in the boat were amazed and said, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him.” (Matthew 8:26-27). Know this: Jesus today has the ready strength to fix your every issue if you ask. Just as He did for the apostles in this account. Fair Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to lean on You to help our every need. In Your name, amen.
Friday, January 30, 2015
WE FIND AN ACCOUNT THAT OFFERS TREMENDOUS INSIGHT INTO HOW FAITH WORKS. It's the delightful story of the Roman officer who called upon the Christ to heal his servant. Why this story counts is the way he begged the Lord to intervene. In return, the Messiah said this: "When Jesus heard this, he was so surprised that he turned and said to the crowd following him, “I tell you that in all of Israel I’ve never found anyone with this much faith! Then Jesus said to the officer, “You may go home now. Your faith has made it happen.” (Matthew 8:10-13). For Jesus to say his faith is this huge says a great deal. Because we too can achieve faith this strong if we will only approach the Christ at this level. The key's humility. Today we all stand at the vast opportunity of sharing in this same level of faith. But we must often approach the Messiah with this level of contriteness. And then we can enjoy seein healins like this. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would increase our faith and humility so we can too operate at this level. In Your name, amen. Peace of Christ to you!

ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS IN LIFE IS HOW MUCH THE LORD wants to heal his people. Too bad so few wish to call upon Him to do the work. Fortunately, we have a nice record of somebody who asks and got it: "2 Suddenly a man with leprosy[a] came and knelt in front of Jesus. He said, “Lord, you have the power to make me well, if only you wanted to.” 3 Jesus put his hand on the man and said, “I want to! Now you are well.” (Matthew 8:2-3). This dude did just the right thing by calling out to the Lord and finding himself healed instantly. Somethin available to all this day. The question remains, how many are willing to call out to Him with this kind of faith? Tragically, too few with so many in wheel chairs and dying in hospitals due to ailments. But you, on the other hand, have a sweet chance to work well to ask the Messiah to heal you and others instantly. Lord Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to have enough faith to seek Your healin. In Your name, amen.

NO MATTER HOW YOU POSSIBLY PLAY IT, your life awaits judgement for certain. You can approach life happily,/ Making sure that you regularly just have a conversation with the Trinity and hang onto their care./ Then for certain you can count on a lovely eternity in Heaven that offers a spectacular life./ So the challenge this day is yours; be sure to press ahead and enter that narrow gate.
THE MISSION THIS DAY IS TO NAVIGATE the narrow gate effectively. Due to the reality of life that eternity begs your attention to this approach. We find this teaching on the matter: "Go in through the narrow gate. The gate to destruction is wide, and the road that leads there is easy to follow. A lot of people go through that gate. 14 But the gate to life is very narrow. The road that leads there is so hard to follow that only a few people find it." (Matthew 7:13-14). Fact of our world is that you are eternal. No matter what Satan might try to argue the other way. You're standing at a fantastic spot of great opportunity to get to Heaven easily. If you respond according to this teachin here. Knowing that the vast majority of people choose eternity in Hell forever. Yep, it's true. They are stuck there for eternity without any possible recourse. But you have that precious chance to act way different. By puttin your heart to the task of walking regularly with the Trinity and enjoyin the sureity that Heaven is yours. Dear Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to pursue the narrow gate steadily. In Your name, amen.

THERE REMAINS A DIRE dichotomy between the pull of earth life and Heaven. It constantly pulls all toward life concerns thanks to Satan ever pushing this vision for everybody that he lives in. His longing is for folks to disdain the Trinity for the pursuit of ease in life found in constantly struggling to make it all work. And that's doable. But we find a better precedent put this way: "Ask, and you will receive. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened for you. 8 Everyone who asks will receive." (Matthew 7:7). This contrary teaching here makes it's appeal to you for gaining your outlook this way. The reward being that the Trinity shall surely reward you for askin. Hence the challenge is yours to always ask and ask and ask. Then await help from Heaven. Great Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to keep asking. In Your name, amen.
