Holding out the word of life

                            “holding out and offering to everyone the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to rejoice greatly because I did not run [my race] in vain nor labor without result.” ‭‭~Philippians‬ ‭2:16‬~ The passage goes…  “Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night so I’ll have good cause to be proud of you on the day that Christ returns. You’ll be living proof that I didn’t go to all this work for nothing.” ‭‭~Philippians‬ ‭2:14-16‬~ The Message Translation “holding out and offering to everyone the word of life” “holding up the…

The Day….

“Do this, knowing that this is a critical time.  It is already the hour for you to awaken from your sleep [of spiritual complacency];  for our salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed [in Christ].  The night [this present evil age] is almost gone and the day [of Christ’s return] is almost here.  So let us fling away the works of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light.” ‭‭~Romans 13:11-12‬~ Wow, it can’t get any clearer than that can it? This verse carries my passionate plea perfectly, to one and all! Hear the cry, heed the call, look into your heart and spirit and awaken from your slumber.  How much more critical can it get before we wake up and realize what day and hour it is?  For many many many years I was asleep. I really had no idea of the significance of…

I count it but loss, for the sake of the cross…

“But whatever former things were gains to me  [as I thought then],  these things  [once regarded as advancements in merit] I have come to consider as loss  [absolutely worthless] for the sake of Christ [and the purpose which He has given my life].” ‭‭~PHILIPPIANS‬ ‭3:7‬~ In the last 3 years out of the 33 or so years, I have been a conscious Christian I have only just started to grasp the meaning of this verse.  It was around 3 years ago that I awoke to the most important realization of my life.  The message of the gospel is life-saving and all people need saving. The mission truly became real to me.  Since that time as the urgency of the gospel message took hold, everything in my life began to change, suddenly the things that used to count seemed so unimportant, so vain, so temporal, so plastic The words of Ecclesiastes…

I want to be in that number!

  Are we on the cusp of His return? I think so, but regardless of what I think the signs of his return are practically fulfilled. No one knows the day nor the hour but we know the signs of His coming. We want to be in the number “when the saints go marching in” 🎶 He will come when that last ‘number’ is in. Will we be ready and waiting? How much do we long for our families and friends to be in that number? It’s time to pray, to turn with full hearts to our God, to submit ourselves to him, to seek him and I pray, be found carrying out his will through his plan for each of our lives. Is Jesus coming back soon? I think so! Maybe yes! maybe no? But we should live with this thought fresh in our minds as if he was.…

All of the above! But what will we do

Yes! All of the above… But what will WE DO? (Image courtesy of Bengin Ahmad – https://www.flickr.com/photos/benginahmad/)   What really should be done and can be done regarding the very many complex world problems we are having? Each of us must do something. Whatever we determine, we can do something. I have spent the morning here reading about so many stories of crisis around the world…. crisis crisis crisis…. If each of us DO what we can DO that will only be a start… the finish…. is not quite so simple…. I read an article which was very wise and balanced and to be wise everything must be taken into consideration. —->Heart breaking dilemma We truly need some kind of wisdom here… However we must also have a heart, a very big heart is needed. And then what….. Where will it all end? Can we solve these problems? Is there…

Truth Doesn’t Change…. Free For All

~Truth Doesn’t Change…. Free For All ~ Actually this is hard to write…. Scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed these days is pretty scary. Christianity, the church, and religion is under attack. Have you noticed? How could you not? A new message, a new Jesus, a new church is being preached by the world and causing a shift in everything around us and the people (who are the church) have a choice to stand or shift with what is popular now? Everything will be shaken but if we stand on the Rock, Jesus, we will not be shaken when it counts. The bible prophecies what will happen, what is in fact happening right now. Its hard to know what to do, what to say anymore. Can we hold back the tide? God has a plan and it will unfold. How it will actually unfold is not known to us until it…
