The Cross

The icon of a cross adorns the steeple of churches worldwide; it is portrayed in works of art, worn on ecclesiastical clothing, stamped on Bibles and hymnals, and is the most recognized symbol of Christianity. Being nailed to a wooden cross was used to execute a criminal in a slow, degrading, and painful death. Why then do we hold up the cross as a sacred emblem of our faith? Because if you KNOW Christ, it is personal!

In the old rugged cross

Stained with blood so divine

A wondrous beauty I see

For twas on that old cross

Jesus suffered and died

To pardon and sanctify me

Hebrews 9:13–14 “For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

Be Strong in the Grace

The Apostle Paul instructed Timothy, his son in the faith, to “be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus”. Paul knew that Timothy would face many challenges and much persecution in his ministry for Jesus Christ. He encouraged Timothy to “endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ”, and to avoid entangling “himself with the affairs of this life”. Paul said that God had stood with him even when all men had forsaken him, and that God had delivered him from “the mouth of the lion” in his own ministry. He knew that Timothy would need God’s divine assistance to live a sanctified life and to succeed in his ministry.

The good news for us today is that we have a loving, Heavenly Father who wants to help his children. God invites us “to come boldly unto His Throne of Grace, so that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need”. This grace to help certainly applies to our salvation, but also applies to other needs that we encounter in this life after we are sanctified by the Holy Ghost. God instructs us to cast all of our care upon Him because he cares for us, loves us, and wants to bring his divine assistance into our everyday life situations.

Take your burdens and concerns to God’s throne today through prayer, knowing that God’s grace will be sufficient for you, and that His strength is made perfect in your weakness.

Overcoming the Winter-time Blues - Tip #2

Another way to overcome the Winter-time Blues is to shift our focus to other people around us. As is human nature, we sometimes tend to think primarily of ourselves, our situations, our challenges, and our problems. But it is a healthy exercise to spend time thinking about other people, their life situations, and to lift them up in prayer. It is amazing how praying for other people can make us feel uplifted and can brighten our spirits. In addition to prayer, we can call, text, or e-mail people with a positive, cheerful message. Maybe even try an old-fashioned way of sending a card or a letter, or by dropping in for a quick visit with the intent to cheer them up. It usually works to cheer up everyone

Galatians 6:10 (KJV) “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”

Overcoming the Winter-time Blues - Tip #1

One of the best ways to fight off the winter-time blues is to begin counting your blessings. Get a pen, a notepad, and your Bible, find a quiet place to meditate on the good things in your life…happy situations, positive friendships, church fellowship, people who love you, and so on. As you ponder these things in your mind and in your heart, write them down on paper. Thank the Lord for each good thing he has allowed in your life, and for the positive things He is doing right now to bless you. This is a good way to start overcoming the winter-time blues.

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

Judges 2: 10-11 (KJV)

"And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which know not the Lord, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel. And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim."

We have a responsibility to the generations that come behind us to dedicate our lives to Second Blessing Holiness. As this scripture tells us, it only takes one generation of not being active and to impact the generations behind us. It is not just our children that we are impacting. It could be our nieces, nephews, children's friend, and in general those that are watching our lives.

To be successful influences we have to be stalwarts in our faith and service of God. By doing this, we improve the generations behind us instead of handicapping them. No matter your age, you have a responsibility to uphold the banner of Christ and show his power to the ones younger than you.
