You’re On His Mind

Jesus has had us on his mind from the beginning of time. He has always wanted the best for us and wants us to be unified in our worshipful attitudes. He wants the attitude of our hearts focused on God. With the exception of one, all the apostles were unified in their faith and prayers. Jesus, when praying to his Father, said in John 17:11 “And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.” In John 17:20-21 he also said, Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou has sent me.” It is comforting to know that we have always been on the mind of Jesus and that He wants us to be unified in Him. God bless you all!

Always On His Mind

Jesus has had us on his mind from the beginning of time. He has always wanted the best for us and wants us to be unified in our worshipful attitudes.

Are You Humble Enough?

There once was a song that went, “O Lord, it’s hard to be humble….” In fact, for many people that might be true, but as Christians we should give glory to God for all that we do and accomplish in His name. We should take an example from John the Baptist, whose followers became concerned that Jesus was baptizing and people were following Him instead of John. John was quick to point out that he was not the promised Messiah, but the one who was sent ahead of Him. He said in John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” I pray that I always remember that I am just a servant, undeserving of the praise that is due our Lord. God bless you as you serve Him in humility!

Hope Dawns Tomorrow

It was Saturday and the Apostles and believers were incredibly disheartened, because on Friday their Lord had been brutally beaten and crucified and they had lost all hope. Little did they know that tomorrow, Praise God, tomorrow was a new day and a new hope of the Resurrection. Luke 24 tells us of the angels saying in Verse 6: “He is not here, but is risen…” We have that same hope! 1 Corinthians 6:14 tells us: “And God hath both raised up the Lord and will also raise up us by his own power.” On Easter Sunday, let’s remember the cost Jesus paid for us and praise Him for His resurrection power. God bless you!

How Do You Handle Trouble?

Trouble can be a good thing or a bad thing. It can harden our heart and make us angry and bitter or it can bring us closer to God and strengthen our trust in Him. Even when Jesus was going to the cross for us he was trusting in his Father. Psalm 73:26 teaches us “My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.” When trials come – and they will – put your trust in Him. God bless you!
