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?"

Proverbs 6:9-11 (KJV)


Proverbs 6:9-11 states, “How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?  Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:  So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.”  These verses offer up a great question.  With all the wonderful things that God has to offer and all the negativity and destruction the devils has for your life, how long will you put off serving the Lord?

Life is serious and we need to treat it seriously!  You cannot be lazy in finding a relationship with God or you will find yourself in spiritual poverty. 

The world today (actually the devil) would have you focus on the temporary things of this world that give you momentary satisfaction and put off the one thing that provides ultimate joy and happiness, which is a relationship with God. 

Distractions of the world will distract one from serving the Lord and ultimately never obtaining eternal life.  This simple distraction is what the enemy desires and will lead to eternal death which is what the Bible describes as Hell.  So yes, life is very serious!  Don’t delay!  It is time to come clean with God and make things right with your Creator who holds the keys to Heaven and Hell!

Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV)


In Ecclesiastes 3:1 we read, "“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”   The fourth verse in that chapter says “A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;”

As a young man growing up, I always wondered why the writer drew such stark contrasts in the comparisons in this passage of scripture. Add years of life experience and now the scripture becomes a little clearer. We all go through different seasons in our lives. We don’t all experience the same seasons together. Some go through a time to mourn or weep, while others are in their time to dance or laugh. That is life and our seasons can and will change quickly.

If you are in a season of weeping or mourning, remember soon will come seasons of laughter and dancing. Be patient, be loving and trust in God! He will give you what you need to make it through.

If you are in a season of laughing or dancing, remember how challenging it was going through the tougher seasons of your life. When you see tougher seasons occurring in other people’s lives, remember to be loving, patient, compassionate and in much prayer to God for them!
