Forgive And Live

NOVEMBER 30, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Hebrews 10:17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    God has just told us in this little verse that He is going to do something we would imagine impossible for Him to do. He is going to, “not know” something. However, God knows everything. He knows all the past, the present, and all the future, which we know nothing of yet. However, here He tells us that He will not remember any of our sins anymore. They are all gone from His super giant all-knowing memory. How can this be?

    There is only one answer. It is only possible because He chooses to forget our sins. He has made a choice not to remember our faults and failures. He has truly forgiven us. He will never bring those things up on our account again. The precious blood of the Lamb of God, His Son Jesus Christ, pays for them and our sin debt has been wiped clean. Oh, what a wonderful promise God has written in such a few words. All our sins have been washed away from our account by the love, grace, and the will of God.

    When others hurt us, God asks us to do as He has done. We are to make a choice to forgive. This means we are to make a conscious decision not to hold the sins of someone else toward us to their account. Yes, this can be hard to do. However, if God can forgive us for everything and make it as if it never happened, should we not also forgive one of His creations when He asks us to? The answer again is YES.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Forgiving people frees us from carrying around a lot of the baggage of hurt and resentfulness. Let’s just give all the pain and hurt to Jesus and let Him handle it. Forgive and Live.

NOVEMBER 29, 2021 – Sing A New Song

Sing A New Song 

NOVEMBER 29, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Ezekiel 36:26-27 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

  “There’s a New Song in My Heart” is a song we have sung in church for years. However, why is there a new song? Have you somehow suddenly got a craving for Psalms and Hymns? Did all your old musical tastes just suddenly go out the window? Well, if you are like most people with music, probably not completely.


    Nevertheless, when you accepted Christ as saviour there is a new desire to sing praises to God. Why? If you think about it for just a second you will realize a song is really a group of words someone put together to convey a certain idea or belief. Every song, (that is any song worth anything at all) has some message. You might ask about concertos or sonnets, songs that seem to have no words. However, even these pieces of music seem to convey a mood the originator intended.

    Why is there a new song in your heart? Well, the answer is very simple. Jesus now resides in your heart in the person of the Holy Spirit. In John 1:14 it says that Jesus, “the Word was made flesh.” Therefore, if Jesus is in your heart, there is a new set of words in your heart, which tell a new story. It is a story of love, peace, joy, and one of eternal life. You have a new story in your heart. Therefore, you have a new song.

   

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    A new composer has also written the story. God has put together a song that brings joy to your soul. Sing unto the Lord a new song. Make a joyful noise unto the Lord. Let all that have breath praise His name. There is a new song in our heart. Sing it.

NOVEMBER 27 & 28, 2021 – Be Thankful!

Be Thankful!  

NOVEMBER 27 & 28, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Ezekiel 33:31-33And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not. And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    During this time of the year with several Holidays upon us, many Christians will try to share their faith with family and friends. Many families and friends will stand by and hear your lovely words. They will nod their heads and agree with their mouth, but as soon as the celebration is over, they will not have given their life to Christ, nor will anything change in their life.

    What a time to rejoice and give thanks. WHAT, you might ask? Oh yes, it is a time to be very thankful to God. I am thankful it is not up to you or up to me to save a person. Salvation is the work of God. I rejoice, even though there are those who turn deaf ears, there will also be those who listen and receive Gods love through His Son Jesus Christ. I am thankful that I will not be held accountable for what others do, only for what I do. I am thankful a few times a year God allows us the opportunity to share our faith and joy in Him, without feeling out-of-place in doing so. I am thankful God will make Himself known in the hearts of people. Finally, I am thankful that on occasion He can use someone like me. We have so very much for which to be thankful.  

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    During this Holiday Season, let God use you. When sharing with family and friends what you are most thankful for, be sure to mention Christ and His saving power in your life. Mention salvation is available to all. Let this be more than a Holiday, share Christ with others, and make it an occasion to remember.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead, we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.

NOVEMBER 26, 2021 – My Life Verse

My Life Verse  

NOVEMBER 26, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Hebrews 2:12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

  Years ago, my Pastor encouraged me to find a Bible verse that I might call my life verse. I thought at the time this would be almost impossible. Every verse in the Bible spoke of who I was to be and what I was to do. How could I pick just one? However, my Pastor had said this would be a good thing to do, so I set out to do as he suggested.

    I began my quest by asking God to lead me to a verse that spoke to me about my mission in life or spoke to me in a special way. Then I came across this verse. This was the perfect verse for me. At the time, I knew God was calling me into the Evangelistic Ministry. To sing and preach wherever He might open a door. This verse declared what I felt I should do then, and now. I am to declare Christ’s name to anyone and everyone and sing for the glory of God.

    As I continued in the Evangelistic Ministry and am now a Pastor myself, this verse means even more to me. I have the great privilege week after week of sharing with people I know, and who know me, the wonders of God’s Word. I also am blessed to be able to sing the praises of His name with and for the church.

    What a blessing this verse has been and will forever continue to be in my life. What a great word of advice my Pastor shared with me on that day. Might I suggest if you have never found a life verse for yourself, one that you know God speaks to your heart about, begin that search today. I know it will influence your life. It sure has mine.

   

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

  I am not asking you to take this as your life verse. However, would you consider following its meaning on Sunday. As you gather with family and friends, would you declare His name unto your brethren and sing a song of praise to Him? As we think on the Thanksgiving week, let us thank Him most of all.
