Circle of Influence


Whether we realize it or not, our life is a pattern for someone else to follow.  No matter how independent we think are or how insignificant we may feel; the way we live, the way we act, the way we think, influences others.  So this week think about your circle of influence and simply remember let the love of God shine through you for all to see.  You can make a difference for Christ!

Matthew 5:16 states, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

Have a great week!

Jesus is Our Anchor


“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 (KJV)

Have you noticed that the world just keeps on changing? The turbulence in our country’s economy for the last four years has negatively affected many of us and our neighbors….and there continues to be much unrest in the countries of the world around us. The only constant seems to be change. Jesus Christ told his disciples “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” Put your trust in Jesus Christ today…he is our anchor in the midst of a stormy, ever-changing world.

Time is filled with swift transition,
Naught of earth, unmoved can stand,
Build your hopes on things eternal,
Hold to God’s unchanging hand.
(Song: Hold to God’s Unchanging hand)

1 Thessalonians 5:18


"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."  1 Thessalonians 5:18

Take time to reflect in your heart on what you have to be thankful for.  We are truly blessed, if for no other reason than our God, our creator has given us life.  Treasure each day and really live and enjoy the life that God has gifted to us.

Perfect Love


The world looks for perfection and believes that perfection is something without flaw, and is unattainable, but another definition of perfect is genuine and complete.  The ‘Perfect’ work is when God sanctifies us and puts his ‘Perfect’ love in our hearts. The work is ‘Perfect’ and genuine and complete.  With God’s love in our hearts, leading us daily, we can live the life God wants us to live and do his work as he gives us wisdom to know his will.

1 John 2:5 states, “But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.”

We read in 1 John 4:15-17, “whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.  And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.  We love him, because he first loved us.”

And in St. John 17:22-24, we read, “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.”

What is Faith and why is it so important?


Hebrews 11:6 says that “without Faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

I believe that there was a George Washington, but is that the same as believing in Jesus Christ?  No, because Faith is taking that belief and acting or standing on that belief.  Hebrews 11: 1 says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.”  

Substance comes from the Latin word “Substantia”, which means “stands under” or “grounds things.”  So substance is those things that are foundational or fundamental entities of reality.  Evidence is a sign or proof of the existence or truth of something.  So Faith is taking those spiritual beliefs and behaving and making life decisions as if those beliefs are fact.

The woman that was sick in Matthew 9 said if I can just touch the hem of his garment. She believed in the healing power of Christ, but knew that she had to do something to get the results she needed.  She pressed through the crowd and reached out and touched the hem of his garment.  Jesus knew that someone of faith had touched him, even in the press of the crowd.  Matthew 9:22 says, “But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said Daughter, be of comfort, thy faith hath made thee whole.”  Faith is not the absence of doubt, faith is moving ahead in spite of any doubt. 

In Mark 9: 23-24, a man came to Jesus, asking for the healing of his son.  “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou my unbelief.”

So we find that Faith is the sincere obedience to God’s will that is exhibited in our life and our conversations.  Not based on circumstance, but based on the exercise of our beliefs.
