Control Your Tongue

"With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God." James 3:9 (ESV)

Big things can come in small packages. It is a small chip in the midst of a computer that allows it to have to speed and memory.  It is a small battery in a remote control that controls bigger devices; it is many times something small that allows something bigger to operate.  There are times we overlook things because they are so small, but without that small item we could not accomplish what we needed.

The Gift

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23

There are a variety of reasons that we get up every day and make our way to work.  For some it is because they love what they do, and they could not imagine doing anything else.  For some it is the reward that they get in just helping someone along the way.  However, for some getting up and going to work is a chore all by it self, because they do not particularly like their job, but they go because of the paycheck.

Thank God For His Grace

"WHAT SHALL we say [to all this]? Are we to remain in sin in order that God's grace (favor and mercy) may multiply and overflow?  Certainly not! How can we who died to sin live in it any longer?" Romans 6:1-2 (Amplified) 

God’s grace is such a powerful force in our lives.  Grace is the unmerited unearned favor of God.  God gives us grace because He chooses to give it to us, not because we deserved or earned it. There is nothing we have done or could do to earn or warrant the awesome grace of God, and we should always be mindful that we do not deserve it.

It’s Your Choice

“And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15 (ESV)

Today across America we exercise our right to vote.  In this heated political season people are making a choice for whom they believe will serve their needs the best.  It is a contest between colors of blue and red, democrat versus republican, moderates versus liberals, and in many cases right versus wrong.

Filled With Joy and Peace

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans 15:13 (ESV)

As we begin another week for many of us our calendars are full with things that we have to do.  As we gear up to fulfill all of the things on our schedule we realize that some of those things are things we do not want to do, or are things that we know have the potential of being stressful.

My God

"And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people." Leviticus 26:12

It is certainly good to know that we have some people in our lives that will always be there for us.  No matter what we may be going through they are not only in our circle, they are also in our corner.  They do not have to agree with us all of the time, but they will support us through every decision we make.

Anger That Leads To Sin

"Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27Neither give place to the devil." Ephesians 4:26-27

Each of us has allowed something or someone to make us angry.  No matter how hard we try not to allow things or people to make us angry, we have become angry.  When things or people make us angry because of what they have done to us we feel justified by our anger, but we do not feel good that we allowed it to make us mad.  As Christians we feel we should not get angry. It is not being angry which is the problem; it is our reaction to the anger that is the problem.

Mountain Moving Faith

"Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done." Matthew 21:21

There are many powerful things that we come in contact with on a daily basis. Watching a demolition crew implode an old building, gives us opportunity to see the power of the explosives used to destroy a massive structure. If we have ever seen Mother Nature flex her muscles and the power and force there is in the wind and rain, or even the rush of a massive waterfall that is the power of Mother Nature at work. Each of us has also experienced going through a time without power in our homes, and how difficult it is to maneuver without power, it is the same thing when we do not have faith we are trying to maneuver in life without power.

Be A Blessing

“Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.” Romans 12:14 (ESV)

As Christians we should pattern our lives and actions after God.  We should strive daily to be more like Christ like in our actions, words, and deeds.  We should want to be a blessing to those we come in contact with, and to show them the love of Christ in action.  There are times however that we will encounter some situations and people that will challenge us and if we are not careful our actions will not be Christ like.  The Scripture reminds us that we should, bless those who persecute us; bless and do not curse them.  I encourage you today to be a blessing to those who God places in your path.
