Newsletter-The Desire Of All Nations

The Desire Of All Nations
By: Abundant Grace Daily Devotion
With the worsening of economies, the rising prices and the instability in the markets, the world feels a level of insecurity that it is unfamiliar with. Believers rest in their Savior, knowing that God has it all under control, but the unbeliever has no such faith. What can be shaken, is being shaken, as God said that He would do (verse 7). The things that are of Him, namely the gospel of His grace and goodness, cannot be shaken so they will remain in this final hour (Hebrews 12:25-28).
The thing that every believer looks forward to, and most unbelievers think is a joke, is the arrival of Jesus Christ. Haggai called Him, “the desire of all nations” (Haggai 2:7). What a wonderful description of our Lord Jesus. Even those who do not realize that they are seeking for Jesus are doing so every time that they try to find happiness in the things of this world. All of these things shake and fade away, and man must replace the joy that went with them. They are seeking after what Jesus offers, whether they realize it or not. As Simon said to Jesus, “All men seek for thee” (Mark 1:37).

Tast and See
By: Thea Leunk
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. – Psalm 34:8
“Try it; you’ll like it.”
That’s what David is urging us to do. He is inviting us to experience what he has discovered: the goodness of God’s salvation. David is celebrating that God has rescued him from his fears and troubles.
Psalm 34 is a song of gratitude we can all sing when God brings us out of a “close call” situation. But David’s joy is only a foretaste of the future redemption God will bring to all who trust in him, to all whom God will redeem through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Newsletter-The Right Kind of Family Inheritance

The Right Kind of Family Inheritance

A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, And the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous. Proverbs 13:22

What kind of inheritance are you leaving to your children? What kind of inheritance are you leaving to your grandchildren? That is what today’s proverb wants us to consider. There is a blessing that we should pass to our families. From what we read in Scripture there is one that we can pass to several generations if we choose to live as God would have us to live. Let us take a look at this today

Newsletter-Accountable To The Lord By: In Touch Ministries

Accountable To The Lord
By: In Touch Ministries
In the parable of the talents, the master gave three servants an assignment to carry out in his absence, along with the resources to accomplish it. Upon his return, he asked for an accounting of what they’d done.
From this parable, we can deduce several principles about the Christian life. First, God has chosen us to be His servants. Second, He has prepared work for us to do, and He supplies the assets and abilities we’ll need to achieve it.

Newsletter-Suffering That Strengthens Faith By: John Piper

Suffering That Strengthens Faith
By: John Piper

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. (James 1:2-3)

Strange as it may seem, one of the primary purposes of being shaken by suffering is to make our faith more unshakable.
Faith is like muscle tissue: if you stress it to the limit, it gets stronger, not weaker. That’s what James means here. When your faith is threatened and tested and stretched to the breaking point, the result is greater capacity to endure. He calls it steadfastness.

Newsletter-What Should We Learn From The Account of Daniel In The Lion’s Den?

What Should We Learn From The Account Of Daniel In The Lion’s Den?

Question: “What should we learn from the account of Daniel in the lion’s den?”

Answer: The story of Daniel in the lions’ den, recorded in Daniel 6, is one of the most beloved in all Scripture. Briefly, the story involves Daniel, a prophet of the true and living God, who defies King Darius’sdecree that the people should pray only to the Persian king for thirty days. Daniel, an otherwise law-abiding man, continues to pray to Israel’s God as he has always done.

Newsletter-The Privilege of an Invitation

The Privilege of an Invitation
One of the men sitting at the table with Jesus heard these things. The man said to Jesus, “What a great blessing it will be for a person to eat a meal in God’s kingdom!” Jesus said to him, “A man gave a big dinner. The man invited many people. When it was time to eat, the man sent his servant to tell the guests, ‘Come! The food is ready!’ But all the guests said they could not come. Each man made an excuse. The first man said, ‘I have just bought a field, so I must go look at it. Please excuse me.’ Another man said, ‘I have just bought five pairs of work animals; I must go and try them. Please excuse me.’ A third man said, ‘I just got married; I can’t come.’ So the servant returned. He told his master what had happened. Then the master became angry and said, ‘Hurry! Go into the streets and alleys of the town. Bring me the poor people, the crippled, the blind, and the lame.’ Later the servant said to him, ‘Master, I did what you told me to do, but we still have places for more people.’ The master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and country roads. Tell the people there to come. I want my house to be full! None of those people that I invited first will ever eat with me!'”- Luke 14:15-24 NLT

Newsletter-The Secret Place By: Greg Laurie

The Secret Place 
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
When you were a child, did you ever have a hiding place? A place you would run to when you were afraid or wanted to be alone? God wants to be your hiding place. The good news is that you can retreat to this hiding place wherever you are. When you are tied up in bumper-to-bumper traffic, you can retreat there. When you are having a conflict at work and don’t know what to say or how to deal with it, you can immediately retreat into that secret place of the Most High as you live in fellowship and communion with God.

Newsletter-Dry Bones By: Pastor Ed Rea

Dry Bones
 
God showed His prophet Ezekiel a vision of a valley filled with dry bones and asked him, “Can these bones live?” This was God’s pledge to someday soon restore His people and the nation of Israel to life and spiritual regeneration. Of course had it been any other person asking the question, the answer would obviously have been of course not, but Ezekiel remembered who was asking and he gave a wise answer.
