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”.

“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.

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.

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!

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.

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
 
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
 
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.”
