Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day

Psalm 42:8
“By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me? a prayer to the God of my life.”

Are You 100% Sure?

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN YOU DIE?

The one statistic that every human faces is the fact that 1 out of every 1 person dies. It may be 30 years from now, 30 days from now or it might even be tomorrow. Life is fragile and nobody knows when their last day is going to be. So the question you must ask yourself is this:

ARE YOU 100% SURE THAT WHEN YOU DIE YOU WILL GO TO HEAVEN?

  • ENDURING TRIALS

    "But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.”  (Genesis 50:20)


    Many times I’ve found myself willing to give anything to be delivered from a trial that I was going through in my life.  But looking back, I am grateful to God for leading me through those times – without them I would not be the man I am today.  Joseph endured many difficulties in his life.  Each trial seemed more demanding than the last but would prepare him for the next, ultimately placing him in the position to save his family and the people from starvation.  In the same way, the trials we endure prepare us for those we will face later on and like Joseph, God has a plan for us.  Joseph always trusted God even when his circumstances were uncomfortable.  It’s important to remember that God was leading and Joseph never found himself where he wasn’t supposed to be.  I’m sure as he looked back, Joseph was also grateful for the trials, and joyful that he had not lost his faith in God and God’s ability to do what only He can.

  • A “THANK YOU” NOTE TO GOD

    “So brothers and sisters, since God has shown us great mercy, I beg you to offer your lives as a living sacrifice to him. Your offering must be only for God and pleasing to him, which is the spiritual way for you to worship.”  (Romans 12: 1–2 New Century Version)     
     
    When it comes to worship, who you are will make all the difference in what you do.  If you are someone who deeply loves God and wants to live a life that gives Him joy, then everything you do can be a form of worship.  Washing dishes, serving your children, helping a neighbor or friend will mean as much to God as  singing songs of praise.  So if it truly comes from a heart of worship, every activity of your life can be a THANK YOU note to God.

  • BLESSINGS ARE OURS FOR A TIME

    “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.”  (Psalm 24:1)

    The Bible reminds us that everything belongs to God, who we are and all that we have comes from Him.  Two valuable possessions God has given us are our time and our families.  God expects us to be good stewards (managers) of both.  Time is the God given span of our lives.  Our family is a group of people He ordained for our care, comfort and protection.  As Christians, we are to rejoice and give thanks to God for all He’s given us through Christ (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18).  The irony is that while God has given us both our time and family, we do not have control over how long we get to enjoy them.  So take the time to cherish, hold and nurture those God has given you.  Hug your children, remind your spouse of your love and nourish family relationships.  Let them know how much you appreciate and love them.  As I’m writing this, I’m planning to visit my Mom to wish her a very happy 82nd birthday as well as take the opportunity to express my love to her.  Remember they’re ours as blessings, but only for a time.

  • AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO BELIEVE

    “We are bound to thank God… because your faith grows exceedingly...”  (2 Thessalonians 1:3)

    The faith of the Thessalonians was growing exceedingly despite the persecutions and tribulations they were enduring.  I wonder if the trouble they were facing provided the opportunity they needed for their faith to flourish, like the woman who came to Jesus with her demon possessed daughter.  She had a problem worthy of great faith and that’s how it was characterized.  Jesus said to this desperate mother, “O woman great is your faith” (Matthew 15:28).  Her daughter was healed that very hour.  But Jesus repeatedly said of His own disciples, “O you of little faith” (Matthew 6:30, 8:26, 14:31, 16:8).  What a contrast!  How would Jesus characterize your faith?  Would He say it was great or little? If Paul were writing of your faith would he say that it grows exceedingly?  I’m certain there are some among us with great faith and others with little faith.  But what is exciting to me is the prospect of having great faith.  So if you’re in a great difficulty don’t give up.  Let it be an opportunity for you to believe.

  • A TRUE FRIEND

    A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.  (Proverbs 17:17)

    Growing up I can remember having many best friends, each one of them unique in his own way.  We had a relationship like brothers; we got in and out of trouble together, comforted each other and I think we would have given our lives for each other.  In the Old Testament, Job and Daniel had friends.  While Job struggled with loss and grief, his friends Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar only offered him condemnation instead of compassion and companionship.  Daniel’s friends, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, supported and strengthened him and each other in difficult times, through prayer, honoring God, and  refusing to bow down before the king’s image (Daniel 2:17–18, 3:16–18).  So what kind of friend are you?  Who needs you to be a friend today?  My very best friend is still with me.  He said to me, “I will always love you, will never forsake you, and I will give my life for you”– His name is Jesus.  Do you know my Friend?

  • GAINING POWER BY LETTING GO

    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  (Hebrews 11:1)
     
    Once we have received God’s promise about a certain situation in our life; namely, a word of encouragement in the midst of trials, we are able to let our worries go.  We may question our hearing at times, we may wonder if we have put words in God’s mouth, but despite our doubts, releasing the circumstances to him in faith is much easier because we sensed He has spoken.  God may speak in many ways, through many different voices.  But one thing is certain, His Word is truth, and when He speaks, we can safely let go, assured that we can count on Him.  When God speaks, it is our cue to stop striving and start trusting.  In faith, we can “be still, and know that He is God”.

    This was Elisha’s request of his mentor Elijah when succeeding him as Israel’s prophet – simple yet exceedingly profound.  From the very beginning when Elijah passed his mantle onto Elisha while he plowed, Elisha understood the call of God, leaving the oxen and running after Elijah.  After witnessing Elijah’s ascent in the whirlwind to heaven, Elisha took up the mantle of Elijah that fell from him and parted the waters of the Jordan River.  Elisha went on to perform twice as many recorded miracles as Elijah.  We the people of CCWO would do well to understand the need for God’s spiritual power beyond our own capabilities, to walk with God, to meet our responsibilities, to care for our families, to live victoriously as did Elisha when he succeeded Elijah.

  • A GLIMPSE OF ETERNITY

    Christ has gone ahead to prepare a “mansion” for us (John 14:2), its “size” determined by the degree to which we accomplish God’s business.  As believers, we are going to heaven, which contains a city that is a solid cube – 1500 miles by 1500 miles by 1500 miles (Revelation 21:10–27).  This could mean 2.25 million square miles on each tier of the cube extending 1500 miles upward – like a huge skyscraper.  If each tier was one mile apart, the surface area of the city would be 17 times larger than the surface of the earth.  It is a city made of gold and every precious stone – jasper, sapphire, emerald, chalcedony, sardonyxsardius, chrysolite, beryl, topaz, chrysoprasejacinth, and amethyst, not to mention the gates of pearls and streets of transparent gold.  As we think about heaven, our pursuit of earthly possessions should pale in comparison; our desire should be for our families to be there.  With this in mind, we should teach our children what lies ahead and what is really  important.

  • HIS EXAMPLE

    “But He needed to go through Samaria.”  (John 4:4)

    We all know the story of the woman at the well.  Her life was forever changed because Jesus went against tradition and custom to seek her.  The question I ask is, “Do we follow His example?”  We call ourselves Christians, which by definition means “Followers of Christ,” but do we really follow Him?  In this story, Jesus left for us the example of   seeking out one in need.  It wasn’t easy for Him to go to her; it required a trip out of the norm.  So often we come to church, enjoy hearing the message and worshipping our Lord, but make little contact with others.  Yes we say hello, shake hands and hug, but never really get to know those around us.  We wouldn’t have to look far to find someone in need or hurting that we could lift up in prayer.  How tragic it is if they can’t find help or compassion in the church.  My challenge to you and myself is to “seek out” someone in need and be the hands and feet of Him who sent us.

  • PEACE AND JOY WITH GOD’S LOVE

    There are some whose souls are at war with God. With the hardness and disappointments from life, they find that each day is filled with problems. They believed the lies of Satan as he made sin seem all right. Satan blinded them to the fact that sin was destroying them. So they fought against God, only to find out that God was trying to save them. It is difficult to really know what true love is. I found in the bible what true love is...God has shown us what real love is. While we were sinners, Christ died for us, we didn’t deserve it, but Christ died for us. That is true, unconditional love. So let’s all find peace and joy with God’s true love. Let’s stop fighting with God’s will; there is such peace and joy to know that God has always been on our side. “Come to me and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). “Love … Peace … and Joy” to you all.

  • OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST

    What is the significance of “Lord and Savior?” They are a package deal according to Romans 10:9. It seems easy to want Jesus as Savior, but the continuing challenge is sanctification by allowing Him to be Lord in our lives. As Savior, Jesus’ work on the cross paid for our sin and provides us access to the Father through Him (1 Peter 2:24). However, one of the central messages of the Bible is to have Jesus as our Lord, which means we give Him control over the cares in our lives (Psalm 55:22, 1 Peter 5:7). Once we receive salvation, we should give Jesus complete control of our entire lives as Lord...every situation. To illustrate the importance, we find 747 instances of Jesus as “Lord” throughout the New Testament. However, Jesus is only referred to as “Savior” 24 times. Often, we try and handle things ourselves, but Jesus is ready and willing to take control, IF we invite Him to do so. He is the true expert problem-solver! He said, “For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matt 11:30). His burden is light, because He does all the hard work!

  • GIVING AS WORSHIP

    What do you think of when you hear the word “worship”? Do you visualize a church service with hymns and songs of praise? That’s an accurate picture, but incomplete. Mark 14:3-9 and John 12:1-7 tell us about another kind of service of worship that occurred shortly after Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. As our Lord was dining in the home of Simon the Leper, Mary, the sister of Lazarus and Martha, took a jar of expensive perfume, poured it on Jesus’ feet, and wiped His feet with her hair. Talk about extravagant giving! That perfume was worth about a year’s wages. But even more impressive than the pouring of the perfume was the way Mary poured out her heart. What an amazing demonstration of reverence and love! We serve a God who gives lavishly. “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son…”(John 3:16). The more we appreciate the magnitude of God’s generosity to us, the more we will want to spontaneously worship Him with our giving.

  • BACK TO THE BASICS

    When you find yourself struggling in your Christian life, go back to the basics and ask yourself, how did I come to know Jesus Christ?  That’s what the Apostle Paul was trying to get the believers in Galatia to see when he asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses?  Of course not!  You received the Spirit because you believed the message you heard about Christ.  How foolish can you be?  After starting your Christian lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort?”(Galatians 3:2 NLT).  He was pointing out that their relationship with Christ started in faith and should continue in faith and not by the works of the law.  Also, “ because by the works of the law no one will be justified.” (Galatians 2:16 NIV).  Since we are creatures of habit we tend to go back to our old ways and rely on our own flesh rather than relying on the resources of God through faith.  So ask yourself, are you trying to be good enough for God or are you trusting that He has already made you good enough for Himself.

  • PLANNING IN GOD’S WILL

    As we start another new year, let’s give thanks to our Heavenly Father for all His blessings, mercies, grace, our health, family, brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as our Shepherd. Consider praying and planning for things ahead that will help us to better prepare ourselves in avoiding danger that may cause unnecessary disastrous consequences. Planning is a necessary part of living. We should follow God’s will when making our plans and not those that will be in conflict with His will. As we seek God, He will guide us and work through our plans to accomplish His ends. Proverbs 19:21 says, “You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail” (NLT).

  • Fun

    FUN
     
    The definition of fun is lively play or merry time.  Can I be a Christian and still have fun?  Absolutely!
     
    In my opinion, fun is wrong when it is self-centered or wishing things that involves sinful things.  It is especially wrong when it leads you to sin.
     
    God wants us to live a joyful life which is an important part of our Christian faith because these things will bring our spirits up and will allow us to see the beauty and meaning of life.
     
    Nehemiah 8:10 says, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord.  Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”                                                                                      ̴ Roland Antonio

  • Words To Live By

    WORDS TO LIVE BY
     
    In 2008, I decided to purchase The One Year Chronological Bible in the NLT, which is not the translation I typically read.  Each day I would read a small portion as was my custom.  I was reminded that daily Bible reading is essential to the Christian walk.  I discovered that reading God’s Word in a different translation gave me a new perspective on the truths found within its pages.  I found it interesting to see what books of the Bible were written when and of course I read them in “chronological” order.  (Yes, Genesis is still first and Revelation last.)  It was refreshing and always inspiring.  As we begin this New Year, I encourage you to be in His Word regularly and to have His Word in you.  You’ll be strengthened, encouraged, inspired and gain the wisdom needed to meet the challenges that come your way during each new day.  Peter said to Jesus, “…You have the words that give eternal life,” and the Psalmist wrote, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
     
    On your mark, get set, “dig in.”                                                                                                                                                                  ̴ Regan Blair
