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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
Monday, March 2, 2015
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.
Sunday, March 1, 2015
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.
Saturday, February 28, 2015
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.
Thursday, February 26, 2015
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.
Tuesday, February 24, 2015
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Saturday, January 31, 2015
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!
Thursday, January 29, 2015
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.
Saturday, January 24, 2015
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.
Thursday, January 22, 2015
AMID THE STRONG PULL FROM SATAN FOR ALL PEOPLE TO DESPISE their neighbors, we live amid a wicked drift./ Pulling fiercely at all to disdain everyone beside them with an arrogant chafing that can hurt./ But happily we find in Matthew a solution that offers a Heavenly guidance to operate so differently./ And by doing folks can attain sweet godliness that offers deep peace and harmony to all.
FACT IS THAT HUMAN NATURE SHALL ALWAYS beckon you toward that comfortable place of judging and belittling others. Since Satan drives you constantly toward that kind of thinkin. But, happily, God has constructed you to operate differently, though it's tough. Listen to Him: "Don’t condemn others, and God won’t condemn you. 2 God will be as hard on you as you are on others! He will treat you exactly as you treat them." (Matthew 7:1-2). So if you care to join the vast majority of humanity headed to Hell, simply defy this teachin and you can get there. But trust me, Heaven's a trillion times more fun than Hell and always easy to attain. If you simply live out this command and be often soft hearted to others. Regardless of how they treat you. That's rad livin. Powerful Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to treasure everyone as You do. In Your name, amen.
Wednesday, January 21, 2015
WORRYING CAN EAT AT YOU. Since it causes folks to dwell upon stuff they can't control. That's much of life. But a much wiser angle is to focus upon the concerns of God and allow Him to sweep your mind toward more peaceful places. We find this teaching from Jesus: "But more than anything else, put God’s work first and do what he wants. Then the other things will be yours as well." (Matthew 6:33). He can construct your life to run far better than your control ever can. And that's a truth to grab and run with. Holy Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to prioritize the work of God in our lives. In Your name, amen.
Monday, January 19, 2015
NO MATTER WHERE YOU STAND ON THE TOPIC, Heaven remains the most lovely residence ever experienced./ Due to the lovely nature of going there. The happy side is there's a daily class in Heaven that teaches/ You how to properly live out the fantastic state you achieve when your body become free of this world./ Of course yours truly is a key part of the class since it sure is fun in Heaven to watch me live here.
THERE STANDS FOR ALL OF US A WIDE OPPORTUNITY. Contained in the notion that there are treasures beyond wealth. Yep, somethin far more valuable awaitin you if you can fathom the extent of the huge wellspring there. It stands shining to everyone on the earth. A spot that happens to reside here in a dimension none of us can see. Though I sure feel it all the time as the souls in Heaven long to be upon me, the only brilliant soul upon the earth. Consider this: "Instead, store up your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy them, and thieves cannot break in and steal them. 21 Your heart will always be where your treasure is." (Matthew 6:20-21). So why's Heaven so grand? Principally due to the better way of life there. Due to the reality that in Heaven people become tiny spirits with incredible powers to enjoy livin a million times better than in this world. So take to heart this teachin and live it so Heaven shall always be your goal. Dear Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to place our treasures in Heaven. In Your name, amen.

I KNOW FASTING QUITE WELL. Having done it countless times way more than others, I understand the supreme value of the practice. But ya gotta do it right. Given that Satan hates the idea. So consider this teachin from Jesus on how to carry it out: "Instead, comb your hair and wash your face. 18 Then others won’t know that you are going without eating. But your Father sees what is done in private, and he will reward you." (Matthew 6:17-18). Plainly put from Heaven, the edict here is a plain one. Do fast regularly but don't let others notice your pain. And you shall be rewarded. Since the Trinity loves your pain and the art of fasting. Know that your suffering by going without food catapults you so close to their Hearts and lands you square in the place of their blessin. So Lord Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to fast regularly like this. In Your name, amen. May the peace of the Spirit fill your heart.

THERE REMAINS A VAST HUNGER IN THE TRINITY TO HEAR PRAYERS FROM PEOPLE. Surprising this idea remains distant to many,/ But really understandable with Satan living within them and his drive to keep you away from prayer./ But happily, the Trinity shall always reside upon you beckoning you to pray to them and sound the draft of life./ All you really need to do is practice the art steadily and wisely, ever making it private between you and Them.
PRAYING OUGHT TO BE THE CHIEF INTEREST OF FOLKS. Due to the wondrous opportunity to talk directly to the Trinity. But with Satan in you and totally at odds with prayer, the challenge remains ever daunting on how to do it right. Believe me, there's plenty of record and lesson in how not to pray. And little out there on how to do it properly. But consider this teaching from the Lord: "When you pray, go into a room alone and close the door. Pray to your Father in private. He knows what is done in private, and he will reward you." (Matthew 6:6). So what's Jesus gettin at here? Not too hard. Really, it's a simple exercise to speak effectively to Him and bless His being with your words. The key practice presented here is to often be private. I say this as someone who prays all day with the Trinity residing in me and so my prayers are the best in the world. But you can get near to this. By consistently living out the idea of frequent communion with the Lord in private ways. Our Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to pray well. In Your name, amen.

DEALING PROPERLY WITH PEOPLE goes a long way toward peace in one's heart. As one who constantly hears arguments from my neighbors in my apartment, I'm used to hearing the poor way folks often handle disagreement. But we find from Jesus a teachin on the idea this way: "But I tell you to love your enemies and pray for anyone who mistreats you. 45 Then you will be acting like your Father in heaven. He makes the sun rise on both good and bad people." (Matthew 5:44-45). A great way to understand this better handling of conflict is from someone who has numerous times successfully done it; the notion works well. I have managed, through love and pray for my enemies, to guide them to friendship with yours truly. Now, the calling is yours. And the best way to view it is to understand that behavior like this make you like God. Nice way to be. Holy Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to relate this way to troublesome people. In Your name, amen.

LIFE PRESENTS SUNDRY CHALLENGES. Our response needs to contain the thinkin of Jesus if we are to prevail. Within this idea we find teaching along the lines of how to relate. It is written this way: "When people ask you for something, give it to them. When they want to borrow money, lend it to them." (Matthew 5:42). The obvious import of this edict is to form your relay to others generously. Consider the stance of Jesus. He remains the most selfless, rewarding and luxuriously formed provider in the universe. A Giver. Hence His guidance here offers supreme wisdom to apply. And it certainly opposes common sense to be this willin to share so freely. But the obvious power of the approach bears great impact for your life toward good outcomes. When you share like this, folks always take notice and in return give glory to your Creator. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to share with people like this. In Your name, amen.

TRAGICALLY, MOST DIVORCES ARE FOR THE entirely wrong reason. Creatin adulterous situations that hurt the Trinity. Far better to find a way to fix your marriage by emphasizing asking lots of questions and supporting extensive conversation. Done properly, that's the sure way to a happy marriage. But rarely done right. We find this teaching on the subject: "32 But I tell you not to divorce your wife unless she has committed some terrible sexual sin.[h] If you divorce her, you will cause her to be unfaithful, just as any man who marries her is guilty of taking another man’s wife." (Matthew 5:32). As one who divorced due to sexual sin from my mate, I speak on this quite effectively. That's absolutely the only reason to get divorced. So take heed to this teachin from Jesus and apply it to your situation. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to strengthen our marriages with love from You. In Your name, amen.

IT'S AN AXIOM THAT HUMAN WEAKNESS drives us toward evil ways. It comes, of course, from Satan that lives in you. Now, I had the lucky day today to spend it with my daughters. As the only person in the world who does not sin, I can always feel Satan livin in those around me due to there widespread sin. But I have brought my daughter up to be so holy, that I don't feel this on them. Quite a joy. Now, your job is to be like that by realizing holy thought often. We find this verse regarding the point: "27 You know the commandment which says, “Be faithful in marriage.” 28 But I tell you that if you look at another woman and want her, you are already unfaithful in your thoughts. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, poke it out and throw it away. It is better to lose one part of your body, than for your whole body to end up in hell." (Matthew 5:27-29). Not a far stretch to suggest you take radical steps to be pure so you don't end up on Hell. Believe me, Heaven life is so much fun that you so want to push to stay absolutely righteous in your thinking. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to remain pure in thought. In Your name, amen.

NO DOUBT IT'S HUMAN NATURE TO LASH BACK at anyone deemed useless. But there's a better way of living. It comes in the form of developing an outlook that's kind. We find this verse: "7 God blesses those people who are merciful. They will be treated with mercy!" (Matthew 5:7). What this teaching calls for is possessing a heart that cares for others no matter their treatment of you. Know that it's human nature to be just and withold mercy for many due to their stupidity. But what this teaching presents is to become a person who to everybody shows mercy no matter their treatment of you. That touches others for good. And in a way turn their heart to the Creator. Since that sort of treatment is indeed rare, it sets you into the spot of becoming a bright light in this world. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would please help us to be merciful to all. In Your name, amen. Peace of Christ to you.

WE STAND IN A SWEET SPOT OF OPPORTUNITY. What this can look like for you is a track to a better ending/ In Heaven that can feel great for eternity. Understanding this fact can make your life something so sweet./ Hence your callin is to be a God command person and ever make His teachings a part of your being./ Then you can share in that lovely ending in Heaven, with a class where they talk about you know who.
IT'S TRUE THAT GOD WANTS ALL OF US TO admire His commands. But if you obey and teach others its commands, you will have an important place in the kingdom. 20 You must obey God’s commands better than the Pharisees and the teachers of the Law obey them. If you don’t, I promise you that you will never get into the kingdom of heaven taught in the Bible. Not in a legalistic Pharisaical way. But instead, along the lines that God intended: Know them and share them. We find this passage that spells out the way they are to be regarded: "But if you obey and teach others its commands, you will have an important place in the kingdom. 20 You must obey God’s commands better than the Pharisees and the teachers of the Law obey them. If you don’t, I promise you that you will never get into the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:19-20). What matters to you in this verse is the notion that there are better places in Heaven for those who live the commands and teach them well. Ya see, God is a person of justice and he rewards rightly. The result for you can be to have a better spot in Heaven eternally.

OBEDIENCE TO THE FATHER HAPPENS TO BE AT THE TOP OF HIS LIST. When ya realize that He's the creator and source of life constantly prompting all to converse with Him, you enter that sane place of experience He shoots for. To obey. We find this description of the idea: "God blesses those people who want to obey him more than to eat or drink. They will be given what they want!" (Matthew 5:6). Now that's a powerful notion to long for obedience to God that much. But how to get there. Since Satan all the time drives you to prioritize feeding the flesh any way you can. He never wants you to be about pondering God. But give this verse some thought and be careful to implement the idea into your life and you will find yourself actually gettin the important things in life easily. Holy Father, we do ask that You would help us to obey You at this level. In Jesus name, amen.

HUMILITY HAPPENS TO BE THE ONE QUALITY SO owned by our dear Trinity. It's who They are. So our task is to learn the craft of that and transform into being like them. Causing our dear Friends to treasure you. Of course, they already deeply value yours truly since I'm the only soul in the world They live in full time; in spite of my human struggles. So, consider this lovely verse: "5 God blesses those people who are humble. The earth will belong to them!" (Matthew 5:5). No surprise hear that our dear Jesus lays this out, since He happens to be deeply humble. Ain't that a delight? I think so. And you ought to feel the same. Hence our calling this day is to allow our hearts to wax so contrite before life that we become automatic to constantly rely on the Trinity and allow them full range into our world. Bringin vast fruitfulness into our lives and a sense of sheer goodness. Awesome Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to be humble somewhat like You. In Your name, amen.
Friday, December 19, 2014
THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY CERTAINLY WORTHY OF ANALYSIS. It's the notion of how important relying upon God can be. It, of course, is quite logical that such a manner would bring blessing. But, to be sure, Satan constantly opposes that style of life. We find this description: "3 God blesses those people who depend only on him. They belong to the kingdom of heaven!" (Matthew 5:3). So your challenge this day is to implement this idea regularly so God can often connect with your soul. And the outcome, for certain, will be Heaven. Knowing that Satan, living in you, desperately wants to stop such thinking, requires you to so focus on the task and overcome his pull away. You accomplish depending only upon Him by regularly praising Him and asking for His help. Knowing He is trillions of times more powerful than Satan and longing for your interest. Great God, we do ask that You would help us to fully depend on You. In Jesus name, amen.

IT'S ALWAYS HELPFUL TO PONDER THE thinking of the Messiah. Cause His desires ought to be ours. The calling upon our lives happens to be about carrying out His emphasis in getting others to Heaven. A place where souls have been for trillions of years. I happen to be the only person in this world who constantly has them pressing on my soul as they pray for me and long for my work leading others to salvation. This occurs cause the Trinity always live in me and Satan never ever dwells in me. As he does you. So consider this verse: "19 Jesus said to them, “Come with me! I will teach you how to bring in people instead of fish.” 20 Right then the two brothers dropped their nets and went with him." The Lord has done this approach for ever and here calls these men to become the workers He desires. Happily, they do it. Now it's your turn, to be about seeking and leading folks to salvation. In a flavor that looks like what I share on this blog. The heart of the Trinity. So be about first of all praying that the Trinity would put people into your path so you can lead them to life. Then be sure to always share a gospel like Mark in order to get them to Heaven. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would kindly help us to be busy sharing our faith with others. In Your name, amen.

WHETHER WE CARE TO ENJOY IT OR NOT, THE light of Jesus shines always in Heaven and beckons the world./ This light happens to be something that can stir people to a walk that shines and uplifts./ Making them happier and way more productive in the work that so appeals to the Messiah./ So your response should very much be to often respond to His grip upon you and talk back.
THERE'S A BRILLIANT LIGHT AVAILABLE TO ALL. It reigns over you personally and over the world at large thanks to the constant presence of the Messiah. Bringing Life. We find from Jesus this description of it: "Although your people live in darkness, they will see a bright light. Although they live in the shadow of death, a light will shine on them.” (Matthew 4:16). The Christ talks of the light that would shine in His land here. But the more lovely side to this is how it very much exists around us all the time. Since He remains ever interested in communion with all. Too bad so few care to participate. But your calling is to often respond to this Light and engage Him in conversation and experience the sense of His Light flooding your person. That shoots you to wonder. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to live strongly in Your light. In Your name, amen.

WE FIND IN SCRIPTURE A BEAUTIFUL RECALL of the Lord's encounter with the Devil. Not an easy situation for Him to be sure. Given that at the time He stood as the Source of Life to the world and certainly deserved what the Devil offered. But what we find lovely in the account is how He stood firm. Read it this way: "8 Finally, the devil took Jesus up on a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms on earth and their power. 9 The devil said to him, “I will give all this to you, if you will bow down and worship me.” 10 Jesus answered, “Go away Satan! The Scriptures say: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’” 11 Then the devil left Jesus, and angels came to help him." (Matthew 4:8-11). I can sure relate to Jesus here, since I am His only brother in the world as I don't sin and Satan regularly beats the crap out of me in order to drive to me to sin. I suffer at his hands a ton more than anyone in this world or the trillion other ones. But thanks to this verse and common sense, I remain strong against him. Though I love him as Jesus does. So your take away is to join Jesus and constantly resist the devil's pull on you to sin frequently. Awesome Word, we do ask that You would help us to remain strong against sin. In Your name, amen.

DONE PROPERLY, BAPTISM SHOULD BE an incredibly beautiful experience. Since we have the beautiful model of Jesus./ We find Him choosing this step at the beginning of His ministry as a benchmark for refreshment from Heaven./ Hence your task becomes one of making sure that whenever you attend a baptism, you at least share this story./ Sending whomever into that precious place of knowing they share with the Christ as they get immersed.
ONE OF THE SAD THINGS IS THAT I'VE NEVER BEEN to a worthy baptism ceremony. Too bad. Since the practice offers incredible potential. We best find an explanation of how it should be done in the model of Jesus. We see it practiced this way: "16 So Jesus was baptized. And as soon as he came out of the water, the sky opened, and he saw the Spirit of God coming down on him like a dove. 17 Then a voice from heaven said, “This is my own dear Son, and I am pleased with him.” (Matthew 3:16-17). First off, the obvious conclusion here is that conversion should result in baptism by immersion in water. Sending one to the place of new life and a sin washing; that's the intent of Trinity in this lovely process. So hang tightly to this passage any time you choose to get baptized or attend the same for another. Let them know by doing so they take after the Savior and that ought to make it all meaningful. Holy Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to make baptisms like Yours. In Your name, amen.
Monday, December 8, 2014
WE FIND IN JOHN THE BAPTIST A TRULY UNIQUE PERSON. Someone who understood the majesty of Jesus and regarded Him justly. We find him saying this: "11 I baptize you with water so that you will give up your sins.[c] But someone more powerful is going to come, and I am not good enough even to carry his sandals.[d] He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire." (Matthew 3:11). Wow, talk about grasping the enormity of the Christ's place in eternity. John got it. And so he speaks in terms that exalt the Messiah toward the standing He deserves. Hence the mantra falls upon us to think in similar terms. Knowing He's always on you all the time pulling for your heart to regard Him in this fashion. And to, in turn, welcome the Spirit to fire your heart toward bigger fruitful works for the kingdom that can only be accomplished by His and the Spirit's moves. Holy Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to honor You as John did. In Your name, amen.

THERE'S A PRECIOUS ANGLE TO LIFE THAT ALWAYS AWAITS YOU in a quite unlikely vantage when seen afresh./ It's all about reading the scriptures with an open mind that provides proper insight to the content./ Ya gotta be sure to ignore and endure the typical crap that is preached from pulpits nearly everywhere./ And just think alone about what the priorities of the blessed Trinity really are on that Book.
THERE'S A CURIOUS RISK TO THE BIBLE. Largely cause in many places churches worship it. Due to the legality of it's contents that so seems to appeal to the many self righteous. However, there's a proper approach to scripture that bears evaluation. Since it happens to be the only source of guidance from the Trinity. Consider this: "16 Everything in the Scriptures is God’s Word. All of it is useful for teaching and helping people and for correcting them and showing them how to live. 17 The Scriptures train God’s servants to do all kinds of good deeds." (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Here we find the accurate suggestion of how to use verses. Use it as a guide on the proper way to live. And if ya do that, you can't resist the emphasis there on faith and prayer. Especially in the gospels. The overwhelming center of the Word. Great Father, we do ask that You would help us to use Your Word justly. In Jesus name, amen. Peace of the Spirit to you.
Saturday, December 6, 2014
WHILE IT'S SO EASY TO BE CAVALIER about sin, the reality is that the Trinity hate it. And given that they constantly watch your every move, you must know your behavior makes a difference on how much They get involved in your life. They're looking for folks who fight sin honestly. Since they're infinite, it's a small matter for them to know every nuance of your life. Therefore, consider this: "The ones who stop doing evil and make themselves pure will become special. Their lives will be holy and pleasing to their Master, and they will be able to do all kinds of good deeds." (2 Timothy 2:21). Hence the idea here is that seeing purity results in your life making a difference for good; be lighthearted about sin and you can count on a powerless life. So fight sin. Great God, we do ask that You would help us to always fight against sin. In Jesus name, amen.
Thursday, December 4, 2014
FUNNY HOW PASTORS, CAUSE THEY SIN, miss the crucial insights into life. But I, on the other hand, want to share the most important side to our Lord. It's this. How He has sacrificially been crucified trillions of times. Yep, time to be smart and think in those terms. Cause that's reality. We find this: "Even before time began God planned for Christ Jesus to show kindness to us." (2 Timothy 1:9). So you're actually a tiny person in the scheme of things when ya dwell properly on the magnitude of Christ's sacrificial love. But the beauty of this is how you can bring that love to your loved ones and others. From the only dude in the world who continues to be so beaten down by Satan, whom I love because the Trinity love him. Hence, I challenge you to regularly adore the Trinity for the wealth of Their kindness to you. Awesome God, we do ask that You would help us to admire You and the Trinity properly. In Jesus name, amen.
Wednesday, December 3, 2014
SITTING IN THE UNIQUE CAMP OF NOT SINNIN, I feel compelled to pray for my readers. You know I love you. Since we share an interest in the priorities of the Trinity. A rare thing. I like to put scripture to the matter since I memorized tons of it along the years. We find this statement that characterizes my heart: "2 Timothy, you are like a dear child to me. I pray that God our Father and our Lord Christ Jesus will be kind and merciful to you and will bless you with peace!" Indeed, it's fair for me to characterize our relationship this way since I live in the rare spot of constantly feeling the power of the Trinity surging through my body. Something Paul never felt since, he, like the rest of history, always sinned. And yeah, Satan regularly beats the crap out of me. So feel treasured this day by the Trinity; They know you could never handle my pain. But it's all a game to me, since I love Satan dearly and he's entitled to trouble the no sin boy as he's looked forward to this for trillions of years. That long ago the Father and Jesus made him. Precious Father, we do ask that You would help us to feel Your Peace. In Your name, amen.
Tuesday, December 2, 2014
IT'S JUST TO CONSIDER WHAT OUR BELIEF OFFERS. To not miss the beauty of what our Dear Trinity offers from Heaven as They diligently strive to get your attention. Of course, given that I don't sin and am the first person in trillions of years to remain buzzed with the glory of Them upon me and the sense of Heaven pressing on me, I got this. So it's quite fair of me to ask a bit from you along these lines. We find in scripture a vision of how to do this: "6 And religion does make your life rich, by making you content with what you have." (I Timothy 6:6). Yep, you get this. Be happy with all that the Trinity have given you and structure your life to please Them. Makes me happy. Lovely Father, we do ask that You would reach hard upon us and help us to be content with what You've given. In Jesus name, amen.
Monday, December 1, 2014
YOUR CALLIN THIS DAY IS TO FIGHT AGAINST the pull of comfort that Satan tugs upon your fragile soul./ Given that whether you accept this notion or not, you shall always be subject to an endless pull/ Toward comfort and the very denial of the more rigorous life that the Trinity so hopes you accept./ Cause Their endless generosity to you ought to compel ya toward that fine course that is so apt.
IT'S HUMAN NATURE TO SEEK REST. Given that life is hard and there remains a constant barrage of demands from livin. But, of course, the need of the hour is to always fight for greater discipline that leads to peace and joy. Since it's only through pain that you can find the real rest. We find this comment upon it: "10 We have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of everyone, but especially of those who have faith. That’s why we work and struggle so hard." Point here being that if you want to mature, Paul's a nice model. So when he describes the faith as something to be fought for, you'd better be sure the callin is yours. Pulling you there. Ya see, whether your heart is soft enough or not to recognize it, the intention of the Trinity, upon your person 24x7, is for you to hike after this idea. Holy God, we do ask that You would help us to Always struggle after Your priorities. In Jesus name, amen.
Sunday, November 30, 2014
NO DOUBT LOTS OF FOLKS HAVE PLACED THEIR TRUST IN THE MESSIAH. And for good reason, given the way the gospels present His majestic ministry. But we find in scripture a further description in detail of why this course makes sense. In the sense of what happened to Him. We read it this way: "Christ was preached to the nations. People in this world put heir faith in him, and he was taken up to glory." (I Timothy 3). The dynamic of His being taken up into Heaven leaves one wondering about where that leaves everyone. Though, the obvious import is that He went back home in order to be busy about saving more folks and guiding them every day. He awaits our interest. So the proper response should be to often turn your heart toward conversing with Him and enlisting His help in your situation. Powerful Jesus, we do ask that You would guide our hearts to lean on You. In Your name, amen.

GETTING TO THE MYSTERY THAT AWAITS EVERYBODY. That's you task, something so doable and lovely awaits you./ Whether you decide to participate or not does not alter the immensity of what awaits anybody willing to reach./ It's all about often talking with the Trinity that constantly your whole life dwells on your skin./ For They above everything live in infinite wonder with billions in Heaven who know the joy of connecting with Them.
SO HOW CAN OUR FAITH TRULY BE SOMETHING UNIQUE AND LASTING? Due to the reality that within this walk there remains deep and stirring mystery. The sort of touch that awaits all willing to respond. Gravity. And that's the beauty of our shared belief that can in fact do the miraculous. I get tired of being the only soul having experienced miracle after miracle throughout my life, when in fact anybody can experience something more. Sure, I'm way more disciplined. But all you need to do is have a tad of the grip I live and you too can share in the wonder. We can read of it this way: "16 Here is the great mystery of our religion: Christ[g] came as a human. The Spirit proved that he pleased God, and he was seen by angels." (I Timothy 3:16). So there's the essence of what you can reach; stretch so this mystery can exist not just on your skin, but in your mind. For from there comes the faith and prayers that tend to realize the miraculous. Lovely God, we do pray that You would help us to understand the magic You offer. In Jesus name, amen.
Thursday, November 27, 2014
WHILE I'M NOT A BIG PROPONENT OF CONTEMPLATING ethics, I of course remain interested in it. And in I Timothy we find some good suggestions on what fine livin looks like. It amounts, naturally, first of all, to have a strong faith to help shape your ethical approach. But given that, we see these suggestions: "It is true that[a] anyone who desires to be a church official[b] wants to be something worthwhile. 2 That’s why officials must have a good reputation and be faithful in marriage.[c] They must be self-controlled, sensible, well-behaved, friendly to strangers, and able to teach. 3 They must not be heavy drinkers or troublemakers. Instead, they must be kind and gentle and not love money." (I Timothy 3:1-3). Given this is first of all directed at church leaders, it's fair to allow for that. But the essence of these suggestions certainly well apply to all. For this sort of purity not only makes living more fun and meaningful, it also reaches the unsaved when they see it lived; since most don't care for this. Therefore, these ideas bear our attention to carry out and implement so we can indeed experience the level of fruitful life we deserve. Holy Father, we do ask that You would help us to live like this. In Jesus name, amen.
Tuesday, November 25, 2014
BE NICE TO THIS DAY GRASP WHAT Heaven really wants you to be about. Given that happy place is the destination for all interested in the will of the Trinity. So why don't we ponder that idea and fathom just what the Trinity most of all want us to be doin. I must confess, as the only soul in the world with the Trinity constantly upon me, I do this sort of thing often and by default. Whereas, to be sure, you stand in a tougher spot given that Satan lives in you and so wants to dispel you away from the better. We find a description of this superior path here: "8 I want everyone everywhere to lift innocent hands toward heaven and pray, without being angry or arguing with each other." (I Timothy 2:8). There ya have it. The longing expressed here happens to be your calling. Truth be told, our Friends in Heaven so hunger for you to be about this activity on your own and in church. Lovely Father, we do ask that You would help us to be a people that reaches to You. In Jesus name, amen.
Saturday, November 22, 2014
IT BEARS CONSIDERATION WHAT IT MEANS to properly adore the Father. Due to my experience with years of mentoring folks how to do this. I sure have learned that everyday people find the task way difficult. Since our lovely God is unseen. But so knowable. Therefore, it bears now justice to fathom what worship ought to look like. Consider this form: "17 I pray that honor and glory will always be given to the only God, who lives forever and is the invisible and eternal King! Amen." (I Timothy 1:17). Yep, there you have it my friends; how to glorify God deftly. We find it in Paul's prayer. It's a view that here fully does fair honor to our glorious and kind Lord. A way for you to pray as I do. Simply talk this way to God and you suddenly become infinetly more attractive to Him. And, happily, a vehicle for Him to reach the world through you. Can't really be done apart from this sort of pure, holy speech. Our dear God, we do ask that You would help us to worship You this way. In Jesus name, Amen.
Friday, November 21, 2014
SO WHEN YOU REALLY GET DOWN TO BRASS TACKS, what happens to be required is a deep humility that simply/ Allows the Christ to do more than just linger upon your skin. Sure, He's always gonna be there, but His way/ Stronger hunger is to do spiritual stuff to your soul at a level only He can work that catches your heart/ And sends it soaring to levels maybe unknown to you before. No worries, this track feels great when ya get there.
THERE'S A KEY SIDE OF CONNECTING WITH THE MESSIAH that truly offers some semblance of hope for the masses. We can find it wrapped around the teaching of Paul this way: "14 Christ Jesus our Lord was very kind to me. He has greatly blessed my life with faith and love just like his own." What this means is that when Paul devoted his being to the Lord, he found himself taken by a faith and love at the scale of Jesus. Talk about intensity. Yet it seems to me, as one today with a similar touch, that you can experience a way deeper level of a brush from the Christ. You only need to approach it as Paul did; allow Him that vital entrance into your being that allows Him to structure your thinking and dreams into His own. Purely. And that, my friend, happens to be the requirement if you are ever to let Him launch your stead into something sailing. It all comes down to humility. Just submit to His desire to craft your life into something quite useful to Him and then faith and love will accompany it for sure. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would instill in us a similar level of faith and love. In Your name, amen.
Thursday, November 20, 2014
ALWAYS NICE TO PONDER THE CHRIST. Largely, cause He's the source of creation of this and trillions of other worlds. So at the conclusion of John, when the writer goes on to comment about His Lord, we find something not really too far said. He puts it this way: "25 Jesus did many other things. If they were all written in books, I don’t suppose there would be room enough in the whole world for all the books." (John 21:25). Really, how trite. No, actually this statement is very much veracity. Because when you stop and consider the simple scale of all that the Christ did in the world, you have to agree with John here. His actions can so very well be analyzed endlessly to result in way more books than ever were known. But, of course, the humaness of all keeps that from happening. Just as nobody can fathom my not sinning and being the only soul mate of Jesus ever, so nobody can do justice to the Messiah. But suffice to say, your appropriate response to this fact must be to open your heart wide to the grandeur of the Lord so He can clean it and make it useful to Him.

ONE OF THE VAST OPPORTUNITIES OF LIVING THIS DAY, is the surety that the Christ so longs to bless you. Don't matter that your humaness argues otherwise; Jesus remains your lastin interest. We find Him doin this to the apostles this way: "6 So he told them, “Let your net down on the right side of your boat, and you will catch some fish.” They did, and the net was so full of fish that they could not drag it up into the boat." (John 21:6). Why this verse counts for you is that Jesus hasn't changed. He still very much wants to bless His people. Yet the question remains, are ya gonna let Him? Cause reality happens to be, you shall always as long as you live have Satan the loudest voice in you. And I assure you, that voice will always work to talk you out of allowing the Christ any stead in you. But all is required of you, is that you simply call on Him, knowing He remains ever on your skin and a trillion times more powerful than Satan. Heavenly Jesus, we do pray that You would please help us to all You to work in our lives. In Your name, amen. Peace of Christ to you.

FINDING THAT AVENUE OF FAITH IN THE UNSEEN can seem daunting when all life seems to throw at you is da physical./ But the better reality is to think in belief terms and push for a deeper trust in the Christ that surmounts/ A pull constantly dragging you toward living fully in weak, survival terms that the Lord so detests./ Instead, His Heart for you is fully one of hunger for your dear fellowship often. Know He's on you always.
SO TRUE IT'S A TOUGH DEED TO HAVE FAITH in the unseen. When all of life suggests actin otherwise. But when ya choose to get serious about finding the source and promise of life, then belief can take hold of your heart and fashion it into something lovely, a form of life that way transcends the seen and moves you toward the Heavenly. Not easy. But certainly doable when ya consider the words of the Christ: "29 Jesus said, 'Thomas, do you have faith because you have seen me? The people who have faith in me without seeing me are the ones who are really blessed!'” (John 20:29). Here we find the Messiah most of all honoring those like you and me who choose faith in the unseen Messiah without having ever seen Him. Makes Thomas' take look way easy. But when you choose to believe totally based on the Word and the sense He's there, as He sure is, then you definitely move to that happy place of honor before Him. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to believe in You. In Your name, amen.

GREETING THE SPIRIT PUTS US IN A PLEASING PLACE within His purview. A space of welcome to us and Him that/ Thrusts us unto His elegant guidance well beyond anything known to humanity within the world./ It's a flow of life that originates in Heaven but, curiously, remains unafraid to amble among us this day./ Therefore, our inkling has to be one of constant welcome if we are ever to mature to that style of Spirit walkin.
SO GREAT TO SEE JESUS BREATHING HIS SPIRIT on the apostles. At a time when they sure needed it. Having themselves, in a way, also been crucified along with their Lord. Hence their need to experience the Spirit's new power upon them must have been dire. Jesus says this, "22 Then he breathed on them and said, 'Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, they will be forgiven. But if you don’t forgive their sins, they will not be forgiven.'” (John 20:22). So their measure of the spirit is well beyond anything known to this point; something so important and effective that they pretty much had to live it. As "Acts" says they do. But the more relevant picture for us is the truth that the Christ wishes to impart the His Spirit unto people today. If only they let Him. Since He don't change or buy the typical church crap that religion is weak and purely ritualistic. Nope, to the Messiah true religion this day is nearly all about the Spirit encroaching upon us. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to welcome Your Spirit. In Your name, amen.
