  • What You Can’t Start the New Year Without

    “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, you and your household”.

        If you’re not saved, your first step in this new year must be giving your heart and life to the Lord          Jesus Christ. If I had a thousand lives to live, I’d give Him every one of them. I really would. I came to Jesus Christ as a teen. If I had understood it sooner, I would have come sooner. I don’t care how young you are or how old you are, if you are reading this, you can be saved. I don’t care how good you are or how bad you are, there’s no one so good they don’t need to be saved and no one so bad they can’t be saved.

        The Bible says, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.” That doesn’t mean mere intellectual belief or just accepting some facts about Him. It means trust. You can believe an airplane can fly; you don’t trust it until you get on it. Come to Jesus and I promise you, on the authority of the Word of God, He will save you instantly. He will be with you continually. He will keep your eternally.

        Commit your life to Jesus. Believe on Him. Trust Him and a transformation will take place. He will save you. He will satisfy you. He will secure you if you trust Him.

  • Any Place or God’s Secret Place

    “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.” (Psa. 91:1-2)  These verses demand that we take note of where we are spiritually living. If we choose to live in God’s secret place, we quickly grow from His everlasting foundation of security. Apart from His security all else is temporal at best. God provides this promise for all but only those who willingly and whole-heartedly rely on His trustworthiness will experience this miraculous event and brag on His constant care!

        As Paul closed his letter to the Roman Christians we note:   “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: (Rom.16:25-26)

    How can we enter into God’s secret place? This can only be answered by taking heed to what Jesus told Thomas when he asked “…how can we know the way?” — “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (Jn.14:6)

    Paul’s protégé (Timothy) records, “For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus…”(1Ti 2:5)   

    Being in Gods secret place provides heavenly benefits on this earth and through all eternity!

    What will it be – anyplace or God’s secret place?

  • Can Others Read It Through Us?

    Worry is nobody’s Friend!

    It does no one good;
    It pays no bills,
    It buys no food,
    It heals not the sick,
    And produces an ill mood.

    Worrying about what we can not control
    Is to no one’s gain,
    For it produces only anxiety,
    self-pity and mental pain.
    When we seek solutions on our own,
    Worry is just time spent in vain.

    We must fix what is within our power,
    And to God give the rest,
    Let Him handle the big ones;
    For Him our worries are no test;
    We can always rest assured,
    That He will do what is best.

    Why weaken our health,
    In fruitless despair,
    When we know full well
    That God is always there;
    He slumbers not, nor does He sleep;
    We are ever safe in His care.

    So why worry? It does no good-
    We must trust in God and pray;
    Seek His answers to it all,
    Have faith in Him for a better day,
    For He knows our needs before we ask,
    And He is able to show us a way.

    Richard Ellis


    The Bible says, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Pro 3:5-6)” 

    Such a profound truth is so easy to read and yet very often difficult to apply! Once we Christians begin trusting our Lord with the small things the bigger things are a piece of cake. We just read God’s promise about worry but the question is – can others read it through us?
