Dedicated

What does it mean to dedicated?  Dictionary.com defines Dedicated as "wholly committed to something, as to an ideal, political cause, or personal goal". In our lives, what things are we wholly dedicated to?  Certainly our family?  Or even our good friends?  Those are wonderful things to be dedicated to, but the most importing thing to be dedicated to is Christ our Savior.  Unless we dedicate our entire life to God and let the Holy Spirit reign within, the other items like family and friends will not be successful.

In the early church, Paul faced several situations that challenged their dedication.  We read in Acts 14: 19-22, “And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the people, and, having stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing he had been dead.  Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up, and came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe. And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch, confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God."

In this New Year, my prayer is that we are dedicated enough to face the tribulations of life and "continue in the faith". And just like Paul, pick ourselves up from tribulation, continue telling people about what a wonderful, mighty God we serve, and encourage our brothers and sisters around us to be dedicated as well.

Joy to the World!

One of my favorite traditional Christmas Carols is “Joy to the World”. The Carol begins with Joy to the world, the Lord is come. Let earth receive her King…

In the book of St. Luke the birth of Christ is announced. Luke 2: 8-11 (KJV) states, “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”

In spite of the reality that life is not perfect, there is a Joy that our Savior Jesus Christ brings when he comes to live in our hearts. As its written in the letter to the Romans 5:13 (KJV), “Now the God of hope fill you with all Joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”

Let the Joy of Christ abide with you this Christmas Season and always.

Blessings,

God's Love

Isaiah 9:6 (KJV) For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

John 3:16 (KJV) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

These verses help illustrate the Glory of God sent down to save the world. We can carry this wonderful miracle of God’s love in our lives and live in such a way that shows we understand, and are truly thankful for, His love, and that He did send His son to be our Savior.

Experience the miracle of God's love today!

Emmanuel - God with Us

Matthew 1:23 (KJV) “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”

1 Corinthians 3:16 (KJV) “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”

How can God be with us? What does this mean in our lives? We can each one have God with us, dwelling in us through the Holy Ghost. In abiding with us, God creates something totally different out of our lives. Where bitterness, strife, and emptiness may have once been in our heart as a result of sin, with the Glory of God abiding in our heart, we can walk with Him, keep His commandments, and have peace and contentment.

The greatest gift has already been given by God. Are you willing to open the gift, to open your heart?

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)

"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

It is the will of God that we should give Him thanks in every situation of life, in adversity as well as prosperity. It is in times of adversity that our thanksgiving to God will strengthen our witness for Christ and amplify the power of God to those around us. When we take time to examine our lives and take notice of all the blessings of God, it produces a thankful heart. However, sometimes we may find ourselves in a situation where we fail to see any benefit or positive outcome. Even in these circumstances we can still give thanks to God because we trust Paul’s words in Romans 8:28 (KJV): “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Bro. Chris Collier
