Building One Another Up

Post Date:

Tuesday, 2017-12-26
SCRIPTURE

From:

1 Thessalonians 5:10-11 (MSG)

Text:

Whether we’re awake with the living or asleep with the dead, we’re alive with him! So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you’re already doing this; just keep on doing it.
OBSERVATION:
In writing to the church at Thessalonica, it seems like Paul may have been addressing some challenges they were facing with imitating the ‘world’ in trying to get as much as they could for themselves, at the expense of anyone who stood in their way. This is evidence of greed and selfishness, without concern for the needs of others. Because this is still a huge issue today, I believe it is worthy of our attention, with hopes of overcoming this weakness, through the strength and help of our Lord.
APPLICATION:
We hear such things as: ‘this is a dog eat dog’ kind of world that we live in; or you must fight for self, because no one else will fight for you; or it’s me first, then if anything else is left, I will share with you. While I realize that none of my readers think and act like this (ha!!), when we hear these things we can’t help but think that some of the people that Paul spoke to at Thessalonica must still be around! I believe that the whole purpose in God having this lesson in His Word, is to teach us in the same way as He used Paul to teach the Thessalonians. Speak encouraging and uplifting words to one another! Please don’t respond about how unworthy that group or family, or coworkers are, because then you should inquire of God why on on earth were you, personally, ever worthy of His love and His sacrifice on the cross. Friends, the best way to get ahead in life is to earn it, not to drag someone down hoping that you will rise above them. Think about it another way, when you are helping someone rise above the worries and troubles of this world, you are considered a hero to them. I believe in God’s eyes, you are considered to be His hands extended here on earth, because He did the same for you and will do the same miracles in your friend’s life as you try to help. Let’s remember, at the foot the cross we are all equal – sinners saved by God’s grace. There is no such thing as ‘heroes’ in God’s eyes, for I believe that He sees His obedient servants. There’s no such thing as poor, marginal, undeserved Christians standing in His presence, but instead I believe that He sees His obedient children/servants. Friends, remember that Jesus sacrificed His life at Calvary so that all who accept Him as Lord, would one day stand before Him in robes of white – being cleansed from the sin, trials and tribulations of this earth. Please also remember that in knowing Jesus personally here on earth, we have that same freedom, as He is also our Lord and Master here as well. No longer necessary to walk around with long drawn faces, for we can celebrate even today our risen, glorious King who showed His amazing love and victory in saving us, even when we approached His throne filled with the sin of this world. Yes, we can celebrate friends, but let’s always remember to encourage those who have taken the risk of holding back on surrendering their lives to Jesus Christ – who is the Way, the Truth and the only means to eternity with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in heaven.
PRAYER:
Lord Jesus, we are so thankful for Your provision of salvation for us to one day be with You and the Father in glory. Please forgive us for the selfish attitude that we have taken in keeping that joy and promise bottled up inside, while many of our family and friends continue to live sin-sick lives. Please help us Lord that we could celebrate more of the lives You have touched through us, than the ongoing celebration of our own salvation. Yes, we have a lot to be thankful for in knowing that You saved us, but the joy is doubled as we celebrate with a friend that You have touched through using us. Bless us oh Lord, so that we may be a blessing to others. AMEN!

God’s Way Is Perfect

Post Date:

Tuesday, 2017-11-14
SCRIPTURE

From:

2 Samuel 22:31-33 (ERV)

Text:

 31 God’s way is perfect.
    The Lord’s promise always proves to be true.
    He protects those who trust in him.
32 There is no God except the Lord.
    There is no Rock except our God.
33 God is my strong fortress.
    He clears the path I need to take.
OBSERVATION:
David had himself a huge praise and worship time with the Lord after he stopped and realized the magnificent God who had brought him safely through the pursuit of Saul to eliminate David. Wouldn’t it speak volumes to your kids to later find your journal where, at least one time in your life, you recorded a celebration of God’s handiwork in your life?
APPLICATION:
Just last night I heard men say that they would never delete the last voicemail from a parent, or the last text from a loved one, because these things bring comfort when they begin to miss that loved one. Fortunately for us, David recorded many of his times of private worship and prayers, because it gives us biblical reminders that if God did it for David, He could very well do the same for us, if we are obedient to Him and have fully surrendered self to Him. Hearing these things from someone we know personally really touches the heart and impacts us tremendously. Recording our experiences will allow God to strengthen and encourage us again as we record the experiences we have enjoyed with God. But for the family member that finds those handwritten notes, it becomes a personal highlight in their life to know that God was so special to their loved one. This, in turn, will give boldness to that loved one who may be facing their own challenges. Friends, you may not feel like you are a proclaimed writer, but recording words that you’ve thought, or prayed or sung out to God, will bring comfort to a relative. You could easily repeat the cycle that David began in our Scripture today! Who knows? Just as I was blessed by David’s recorded words today, our great grandchildren might be blessed by the notes we leave around the house where we recorded our own life-experiences with God. Will you join me in trying that, so that God might be glorified through even us?
PRAYER:
Lord, you’ve strategically placed the words and songs of great saints, like David, so that we might read them, be reminded of the many ways that You have also blessed us, and encourage us to do the same for our ancestors. Lord, make us bold servants to obediently follow Your teachings and Your commands, and help us to unselfishly record many of our blessings, with hopes that others might be lifted up and encouraged to do the same. You are glorious and wonderful in so many ways to each of us every day, please help us to take a moment and record those blessings for the benefit of others being also blessed from our experiences. AMEN!

To Bear Witness

Post Date:

Tuesday, 2017-09-26
SCRIPTURE

From:

John 1:6-12 (NKJV)

Text:

 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name

OBSERVATION:
Right at the outset of the Gospel of John, he claims that his whole purpose in existing is to be a witness for the King who sent him, and who will return to this earth to rule and reign. Wow, what a witness! Let’s apply that to ourselves…..
APPLICATION:
In our lives we are often compared back to one of our parents. We either look like them or act like them. Often our mannerisms, or our smile, or some of the things we say, or the way we act, might remind people of one or both of our parents. I wonder how often we are mistaken for Jesus? Without going around with a placard around our necks, I wonder how often others see the qualities of Jesus Christ in us? One of the things that we must remember when we feel led of God to be a bold witness for Him, is that we will be so totally different to this world, that they will probably feel like we are crazy, just like John was treated. You see, it was very evident to God that Satan was leading this world totally down the opposite road to what God intended. Think about it: Satan encourages lies to get your own way and try to fool the other party you are dealing with, but God wants us to always tell the truth; Satan will lead us to kill, like he did with several in the Bible stories that we read, but God wants us to value the life that He has provided in each of us, because He wants us go on being living witnesses for Him; Satan encourages trickery and deception, but God leads us to be transparent and loving to our Brothers and Sisters, because He wants us to follow His example. Friends, God sent John as the pre-runner to His first coming. I believe that He has sent us as the pre-runner to His second coming. Are you on track for the task assigned to you? There’s no time for procrastination, for I believe that Jesus could return at any moment to take His bride away to glory – that’s His children who have accepted Him as Lord and are anxiously awaiting His return. Our task is similar to that of the apostle John, let’s be busy about the Master’s work so that many will be ready to go when He returns. The alternative is Hell, a place made only for those who refuses to trust in God. Where will you go, if Jesus returned today, friend?
PRAYER:
Like John the Baptist, I feel like You have given us the heads-up on what’s ahead, Lord Jesus. Like our Brother John, we could only resign ourselves to being Your light in the midst of this dark world of sin. Please give us boldness to do Your will, to be Your witness, and to love others enough to care about their well being and their future. The options are totally opposite, and our desire is that everyone we know will see Your light today and accept You as Lord, because tomorrow may be too late. Use us, Your humble servants to be a living witness, a light to the many who need to have their world enlightened with Your grace and Your glory, AMEN!

Proud To Be A Christian?

Post Date:

Saturday, 2017-09-02
SCRIPTURE

From:

Judges 6:27 (Voice)

Text:

 27 So Gideon took 10 of his servants and did as the Eternal had told him; but since he was worried about what his family and the people of the town might think, he did it at night while they all slept.
OBSERVATION:
Gideon was an interesting character. He asked for God to clearly prove Himself when He first spoke to Gideon. Now when asked to prove his allegiance to God by completing an order to destroy the idols of his dad and his town, he agreed, but he completed the task in his own time, to be the least possible conspicuous. Do we try to hide behind something when we serve God, so that we are not faced with challenging questions about our belief? We will discuss this further….
APPLICATION:
Do your family and friends know that you’re a Christian? Do you know if they are? They are perfect as a practice target! If you can’t speak with them about their faith, how will you manage with a complete stranger? You might remember that Peter, one of the close disciples of Christ, was challenged about his relationship with Jesus, and he did exactly what he had earlier told Jesus that he would not do, he denied being associated with Jesus or even knowing Him. Gideon never said anything, but what do you suppose that his actions said? Perhaps: I value my life way too much than to be killed by my own people for tearing down their gods; or what will these people, that I’ve known all my life, think of me when I rebel against them by replacing their gods with my own altar of the living God? What does your words and actions say to others about your faith? One of the most challenging things in living a life pleasing to God, is that the ways of the world is often totally opposite. Are you bold enough to ‘go against the grain’ and show that you are different because of Jesus? Another challenge is that you show that you are different, in complete humility. Not to show the other person up. You never put down an unbeliever so that you might look better in your beliefs. Simply live the life that God expects from you and allow Him to do His work in the lives that you are impacting. Words of encouragement and trying to be available for an unbeliever might be a start. Following the example of Christ is the best witness. Friends, Gideon did what he was asked to do, but he also wanted to stay on the good side of his family and townspeople.  In being willing to obey God, we may have to obey God’s commands in spite of any sort of compromise. Are you willing to try that today?
PRAYER:
Lord, we are challenged every day with all that we should do, but way too often we allow our pride to override, or our desire to keep all parties happy. Please help us to be so committed to You Lord, that we will be willing whatsoever You ask of us. We need Your power, strength and boldness every day. Please help us to be images of our God who loves us beyond everything else. AMEN!

Where’s Your Heart?

Post Date:

Friday, 2017-05-19
SCRIPTURE

From:

Mark 11:7-10 (TLB)

Text:

So the colt was brought to Jesus, and the disciples threw their cloaks across its back for him to ride on. Then many in the crowd spread out their coats along the road before him, while others threw down leafy branches from the fields.

He was in the center of the procession with crowds ahead and behind, and all of them shouting, “Hail to the King!” “Praise God for him who comes in the name of the Lord!” . . . 10 “Praise God for the return of our father David’s kingdom. . . . ” “Hail to the King of the universe!”

OBSERVATION:
Many will recognize these verses as a scene that’s often taught or preached in church services leading up to Palm Sunday. Many different people involved in this story: Jesus; His followers; the town’s people; the obedient disciples who went and got the colt; the believing bystanders and the unbelieving bystanders. Very interesting roles that each of these folk took in this story and we will examine this closer to see which group each of us may have fit into.
APPLICATION:
As I read this Scripture this morning, it got my attention as to which group of people I may have been included in, so as you meditate on this devotional I would ask that you do the same. One thing about this exercise is that it is one thing to recognize which group you might fit into today, but an altogether different thing to seek the face of God for the desired group you may want to fit into, or ask Him to place you in the group where you would see the most growth, and be drawn the absolute closest to Him. Let’s think about some of the groups:

  • His followers – Some may have been in this group because they were part of the larger group that Jesus had miraculously fed, and they wanted to hang close in case He did that again. Others perhaps staying close because of the promised kingdom He had told them about, while yet others because of the personal relationship they had developed with Jesus. When the colt arrived, some placed their coats on the donkey for Jesus to sit comfortable on, and some spread their jackets on the ground, while others found palm branches and placed them on the ground ahead for the colt to walk on. I got the impression that there were some that did neither.
  • The town’s people – they didn’t beat up the disciples that snitched the colt, but don’t you imagine that they kept a real close eye on them for anything else they may have touched in their town?
  • The obedient disciples – imagine for a moment the conversation these guys had when they left Jesus and went into the town for the colt. The doubt that arose in their minds, or the reassuring by one to the other. Imagine the looks on their faces when they saw the colt, just as Jesus told them they would? Seeing other town’s people around, I wonder if they went sneaking around to get the colt, or boldly, knowing that they had a response from the Master, should the people question them.
  • The bystanders – some curious, some in doubt, some hoping to find something wrong so they could generate some town gossip, while some may have heard about Jesus and was looking for slightly more proof to convince them to either accept or reject Him.

Friends, I would really like you to take a moment and reflect on which of these groups you would most likely fit into. As you do this, evaluate your personal relationship with Jesus Christ; your boldness in being His witness; your commitment to spending time with Him daily; your lifestyle as seen in the eyes of the unbeliever – do they see enough of Jesus in you, to claim you as His child? Or do they see you as hypocritical because your actions and words do not match who you claim to be? Where’s your heart, friend?

PRAYER:
Lord Jesus, You know us intimately. In fact, You know us better than we know ourselves. As we evaluate our stance in life today, I pray that You will open our eyes of understanding and our stony hearts so that our shortcomings will be evident. Please give us clear thoughts and vision on where we should be in Your plan for our lives, then give us boldness and commitment to follow through, in Your strength. Lord, I pray that my readers and I will draw close to You and allow You to take full control of us, all for Your glory, honor and praise. AMEN!

Who Is Jesus – In Your Eyes?

Post Date:

Wednesday, 2017-05-10
SCRIPTURE

From:

Mark 8:27-30 (GNT)

Text:

27 Then Jesus and his disciples went away to the villages near Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, “Tell me, who do people say I am?”

28 “Some say that you are John the Baptist,” they answered; “others say that you are Elijah, while others say that you are one of the prophets.”

29 “What about you?” he asked them. “Who do you say I am?”

Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”

30 Then Jesus ordered them, “Do not tell anyone about me.”

OBSERVATION:
Jesus had been preparing the disciples for this very important question that He posed to them in verse 29. He had shared several parables that really got them mentally prepared for the question ‘But Whom Do You Say that I am?’ This remains an important question for us today!
APPLICATION:
How often have you gone home from church and been asked about the service? Most of us tend to respond about what the preacher spoke on, if we remember! Some will tell of the special visitors to the service, while others might tell how the preacher really got on to the parishioners in his challenging words. But what if you were asked to specifically tell what you personally got from the sermon? Now, think about a scenario at work, where Jesus and the local church is being discussed. Having heard you mention the name of Jesus before, you might be asked who He is to you and what is your relationship to Him. That’s a wide open door to share the gospel and your personal relationship with Jesus, friend. Are you prepared in your mind to do that? Jesus got very personal with the disciples when He asked their opinion about, and their relationship with Himself. May I encourage you to mull over in your mind how you would respond if a family member, or a friend, or even Jesus asked you today “So who is Jesus to you?”. I pray that your response would influence an unbeliever to learn more about your Jesus and want to know Him in a personal and meaningful way as you do. I pray that Jesus would be convinced that you are His and He is yours, forever!
PRAYER:
Lord Jesus, You gave up Your life for me, so that I may spend eternity with You and Your Father. You called me to Yourself and I surrendered my life to You. You have loved me, watched and protected me, and the Bible says that You have prepared a place for me! Thank You for being my Lord, my Master, my Comforter, my Redeemer and my soon coming King. May there always be a witness on my lips, love in my heart and excitement over uniting with You when You call me away from this old earth. May others find every reason to want a relationship with my King, because of the evidence they see in my life. May my readers be encouraged, and always prepared to share the reason for their joy in knowing You personally, so that You may be glorified in all things. AMEN!

How Long Do I Have?

Post Date:

Tuesday, 2017-03-21
SCRIPTURE

From:

Matthew 24:37-42 (TLB)

Text:

37-38 “The world will be at ease – banquets and parties and weddings – just as it was in Noah’s time before the sudden coming of the Flood; 39 people wouldn’t believe what was going to happen until the Flood actually arrived and took them all away. So shall my coming be.

40 “Two men will be working together in the fields, and one will be taken, the other left. 41 Two women will be going about their household tasks; one will be taken, the other left.

42 “So be prepared, for you don’t know what day your Lord is coming.

OBSERVATION:
Jesus took the opportunity to further explain how it will be when He returns to take His church/His children home to glory. Like many serious events in our lifetime here on earth, it won’t be on our timetable.
APPLICATION:
At my church there is a group that I shepherd, and back in December we had our Christmas party all planned out, including a few things I wanted to share as part of a devotional. Well guess what, I surprisingly wound up spending that time period in the hospital and the party had to go on without me. In our verses today, there is another such story in the Bible where Noah was commissioned to find the righteous in his area. Finding none, he was ordered to build a boat in the middle of the land. This made as much sense to the people as someone today building an airplane in a high-rise downtown New York city! But Noah was an obedient servant who left the logistics of launching that huge ship up to the God who ordered him to build it. Friends, doctors today have been blessed with such talent, and they have so many technologies available to help them analyze their diagnosis of a patient, yet I believe that most of us head home from a doctor’s visit and research on the internet all side effects of any medications prescribed, or any new diagnosis shared by the doctor. I wonder how many go home from a church service and research more about what their pastor shared in his sermon! I wonder how many go to the main resource for life, the Bible, to see what God says about current world events, or personal issues they are dealing with! I wonder how many see enough of Jesus in Christians that they ask “what is your source of hope, because I need some of that!” I wonder what we will say to Jesus when questioned about a family member or friend that we never warned about the separation that will come when Jesus returns, should they not have heard about or accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior! I believe that doctors have gotten a whole lot better at telling their patients the truth about their evaluation of their remaining life. I hope that my fellow Christians and myself will do a better job of doing the same. The Bible tells us that can be at any time Jesus sees fit. Let’s not ‘sugar-coat’ that news as we glory with those who are ready, or challenge those who are not ready to go.
PRAYER:
Come Lord Jesus, even today! Lord, I pray that we, Your children, will be honest in telling the BIG news today, even though for some that will be so challenging that they may reject us. All the same, please help us to be very honest and not tell them what we think they want to hear. Your Word is a light unto our path, and that same Word tells us that Your return is eminent, and could be at any given moment. Praise God for all who are reading this devotional and know that they are ready to see Jesus, now may we all be busy sharing with our family and friends the clear path to eternal life, God being our helper. Thank You Lord Jesus for being the Way, the Truth and the Light for all mankind, AMEN!
