Emmanuel - God with Us!


Matthew 1:23 states, “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.”

In 1 Corinthians 3:16 we read, “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?

Spirit of Christ at Christmas


As Christians, we have a duty to represent Christ in all aspects of our lives. What greater opportunity exists to show the world God’s love than during the celebration of Christ’s birth? God sent His only Son into the world to forgive our sins and provide to us the constant abiding Holy Spirit. Our children deserve the truth. Make believe stories are fun and a part of the childhood experience, but when they appear to be more popular than the truth, they can mislead our children. 

The Spirit of Christ supersedes the spirit of Christmas. The spirit of Christmas is annual; the Spirit of Christ is eternal. The spirit of Christmas is sentimental; the Spirit of Christ is supernatural. The spirit of Christmas is a human product; the Spirit of Christ is a divine person. 

In Matthew 1:18-21 we read, "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins."

Preach


In Mark 16:15, Jesus told his disciples, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”  What is the Gospel? The Gospel is the good news of faith in the saving grace of Jesus Christ to salvation for every person in the world. The Word of God teaches that salvation is obtained by two separate and distinct works. First, we must be forgiven by God for the sins we have committed and second, we must be sanctified by the power of the Holy Spirit. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit gives us the power to live a life pleasing to God and keeps us from the sin that is in the world. 

What does it mean to preach? We sometimes equate the word “preach” with a pulpit practice, but the definition of “preach” is to proclaim. Everything we do at home, at the work place, and in our day to day lives can proclaim the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Every one of us has a testimony of what God has done for us and in our lives; we only need to allow the Holy Spirit to speak through us. 

Romans 10:14 states, "How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?"

In Henry J. Zelley's song, Bless Me Lord And Make Me A Blessing, we read:   

“I do not ask to choose my path. 
Lord, lead me in Thy way; 
Inspire each thought, and prompt each word, 
And make me a blessing today.”

Psalm 90:12 (KJV)


Psalm 90: 12 (KJV) states, "So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."

"Let us deeply consider our own frailty, and the shortness and uncertainty of life, that we may live for eternity, acquaint ourselves with the Spiritual life that God has prepare for us, and be at peace; that we may die in favor and live and reign with God eternally." quote by Adam Clarke

Fall Season


As the fall season begins to show its colors, we are reminded once again that……….

Psalm 19:  1–2  "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge."

Psalm 8:  3–4  "When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?"
