What is your life scripture?

Good mathematicians are accustomed to being right.  Good lawyers, accountants, restaurant servers, flight attendants, fire fighters, police, cashiers, doctors, other medical personnel, preachers, and many others are used to getting things right.

When you are used to getting things right, the enemy will slip the thought in your mind that you are always right.
As a human, you are also subject to believing and acting as if you are always right and others are wrong (you say you make mistakes but your heart and your actions say what you really believe).

You don't mean to get lifted up in pride, it just sneaks into your life because you are used to getting things right most of the time.

Christians, ask God to give you a life scripture that puts you in check and keeps you in check.  Meditate on and apply you life scripture throughout your life.
God will use your life scripture to bless you for years to come.

My life scripture is Proverbs 3:1-10.
What is your life scripture?

Doing a Loan with God?

Does God really need anything from us?

Look at what God said: "Kindness to the poor is a loan to the LORD, and He will give a reward to the lender" (Prov. 19:17) HCSB

Christian's despite all the tension in the country today, don't loose sight of our basic duties to our fellow humans.

Don't allow all the challenges that comes with helping the needy stop you.

They might and they might not change after your help.

Just remember be kind to the poor (they get enough criticism and skepticism).

Last thing, anticipate God's reward for your loan to Him.

God Bless,

Are You Content in Jesus?

Contentment in Jesus is being satisfied with the provision of Jesus today with the clear understanding that He will guide and provide tomorrow (Matt. 6:33).

Contentment is achieved through godliness.  Godliness is loving God with our total person as evidenced by our obedience to Him (John 14:15,21).

Being on missions in Tchula Mississippi, I am reminded afresh of why contentment in Jesus is better that chasing the dollar and the emptiness of materialism.  God gives us material blessings to enjoy and share with others versus chases stuff (I Tim. 6:17-19).

Christians meditate on I Tim. 6:7-8, for a fresh review of life: "For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either.

8 If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content (I Tim. 6:6-7).

God Bless,

What is Your Mission this Week?

Christians, we still have the responsibility to share the message about Jesus as we travel through life.

Included in our call to feed the hungry, visit prisoners, visit the sick , build water wells, etc., is pointing people to a relationship with God through Jesus, which will change people for good (II Cor. 5:17).

Invite someone to church or your small group.  Share how you gave your heart to Jesus.  Share a witnessing booklet with someone. Offer to pray for someone.  Be intentional and plant and water seeds of the gospel message (I Cor. 3:5-8).

To every Christian, the Lord give you holy boldness, wisdom, and strength to do missions as you go (Matt. 28:18-20).

God Bless,
