What is truly ours?


What is truly ours?  Our home, our car, our health, our wealth? Our family, our friends, our church?

We have a song that says “Riches oft take wings and fly”. Family can be taken from us, by death, by distance, age or neglect.  Health is something we have no control over.  In spite of all our medical advances, even our health is not guaranteed. The only thing that truly belongs to us and over which we have total control is our soul, which is given to us by God.

Genesis 2:7 states that “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.”

No man can take our soul.  They can take our life, wealth, destroy our health, our families, anything and everything that can be seen. But our soul was given to us by God and God has given us control of our soul and its destiny.

Joshua 24:15 reads, "And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the god’s of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

Only you can decide the home of the soul. Heaven or Hell, no one can make that choice for you and no one can take that choice from you. It’s yours to make. I pray you chose God’s love in this life and Heaven’s reward after life.

Matthew 21:44 (KJV)


Are you broken?  Are you allowing God to make you?

Jesus tells us in Matthew 21:44, "And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder."  The "stone" is Jesus.  When we choose a selfish path, it will destroy our lives.  If we choose to be broken and fall on the stone, we can find a victorious life.

Jesus also tells us in Matthew 16:25-26, "For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.  For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?"

Choose to be broken, choose to have abundant life through Christ Jesus.

Acts 2: 46-47 (KJV)


Acts 1:14 states, "These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren."

In Acts 2:1 we read, "And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place."

Acts 2: 46-47 states, "And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people.  And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved."

Camp Meeting 2018, what a wonderful week we had last week worshipping the Lord with many brothers and sisters, seeing lost souls find new life in Christ Jesus.  Oh how beautiful to see the transformation in a life that is only available through the Spirit of God.  I have been thinking about what causes so many souls to look to camp meeting as a place for a new start.  While I realize there are many things that play a part in this, this year I couldn’t help being challenged by the fact that one major reason is that we bathe this week in prayer well before we get there.  Not only that, we all approach that week in one accord, expecting blessings to flow, and expecting souls to seek to be saved.  So the challenge I left Camp Meeting with this year….We only have 51 weeks remaining until Camp Meeting 2019, what will we do with those 51 weeks?

Psalms 90:1-4 (KJV)


A teacher friend shared this testimony with me, hope it blesses you!  Have you ever been stuck, running through the rain without an umbrella? This happens to me sometimes, I’m in my classroom when a downpour occurs and it’s time to go to my car. Guess where my umbrella is? In the car. After getting my kids, my bags, everything else in, finally, I get in, drenched, shivering and miserable. Other times, I am more prepared. I pop my umbrella up and I am protected from the weather. 

Isn’t life sometimes like that? It’s like the world starts raining down its negativity, its harshness, its condemnation. The last thing we want is to be drenched in such rain. Remember that God and His love is like our umbrella, our protection, our solace in the storm. It can be raining all around us, harsh words, anger, strife, ungodly behaviors, and negativity, but under our umbrella, we are guarded safe and secure from all alarm. This umbrella of God’s love can guard our hearts, allowing the Holy Spirit to keep out what isn’t of Him and keep in what is of Him. When we pop up the umbrella of God’s love, we stand out in the crowd, and can offer and share His love with the people who are walking beside us. We can invite them to come under our umbrella of love as we share with them the love of our Savior.

Psalms 91:1-4 states, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.” Don’t get drenched in negativity this week! Pop open God’s umbrella of love.

Mark 12:31 (KJV)


As our awesome Raleigh crowd is preparing for Bible School this year, my teacher heart gets so excited to have the chance to share the good news of Jesus Christ with our school-aged children! I am constantly humbled by the responsibility I have in showing holiness to our children. This is such an important work.

We must remember every child is created and cherished in the eyes of God. We all come with our own unique personalities and backgrounds and are influenced and taught by all different types of people. Sometimes the kids who need our most patient teaching are the ones who test our patience.

Mark 12:31 states, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” Show them Jesus. Be the person who stays calm and smiles the next morning in greeting when something went wrong the day before. It may seem like nothing to you, but it can mean everything to them. Let’s make the five mornings of Bible School that we are with the children leave such an impression of the Father’s great love, that they remember it for the other 360 days.

Lord help us share your amazing life-changing news! Equip us with your spirit, may we step back and allow you to have full reign in the chapel next week. Unite our crowd in this common goal. May we be Jesus to every person we meet, big and small. Amen!

Sister Diana Bryant
