Newsletter-The Steps Of A Good Man

The Steps Of A Good Man
 
On the road of life, a believer’s pathway is established or ordered by the Lord. The emphasis here is on the fact that it is the steps of a “good” man that are ordered by God. If we will keep short accounts with God (confessing and repenting as soon as we stumble) and stay surrendered to His will (His Lordship over our lives), then His guarantee is that He will keep us headed in the right direction.

Newsletter-Not A Personal Rejection

“When a person listens to you, that person is really listening to me. But when a person refuses to accept you, that person is really refusing to accept me. And when a person refuses to accept me, he is refusing to accept the One (God) that sent me.”

As Jesus’ disciples, we must not take the rejection, or the acceptance, of the message of Christ too personally.

Newsletter-The Mission of the Twelve

1 He summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases,
2 and he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal [the sick].
3 He said to them, “Take nothing for the journey, neither walking stick, nor sack, nor food, nor money, and let no one take a second tunic.
4 Whatever house you enter, stay there and leave from there.
5 And as for those who do not welcome you, when you leave that town, shake the dust from your feet in testimony against them.”
6 Then they set out and went from village to village proclaiming the good news and curing diseases everywhere.
Jesus called the Twelve – these are the disciples that eventually became the Apostles; these are the men that shared the Last Supper with Him.  On this occasion He gave them the power an authority that He had been using to cast out demons and to cure illnesses.  On receiving this power they really did go throughout the countryside curing the sick and casting out demons.

Newsletter-When God Prayed

When God Prayed
That annoying alarm wakes us up. We grab a shower and a cup of coffee, then we’re out the door on our way to work. We might listen to a sermon on the radio during our morning commute, or we might read the Bible at lunch time. And soon enough, it will be time to go home. We go home, do a few things around the house, cook supper, pay bills, and then we’re off to bed to restart the process. But here’s a pressing question: when did we stop and talk to God, and really spend some time praying to Him? If you’re answer is anything like mine, you might feel a bit of shame. Most of us would likely admit that we haven’t been praying as much as we should be. For me, reading the Bible isn’t a problem. I’ve got a Bible reading plan that keeps me in line. But prayer . . . that’s another story. It is difficult for me to find time in my busy day to really spend time with God. That’s an honest confession.

Newsletter-Jesus Is The Calm In The Storm

Jesus Is The Calm In The Storm
And when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. A windstorm arose on the sea, so great that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep. And they went and woke him up, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” And he said to them, “Why are you afraid, you of little faith?”
Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a dead calm. They were amazed, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?” Matthew 8:23-27
Different people hear a story like this in different ways. Some people just accept the story at face value. They see the story in their minds’ eye as they read. They see the waves crashing into the boat. They imagine Jesus as they have always imagined Jesus, their imagination defined by a stained glass window or an illustration in a childhood Sunday School lesson.

Newsletter-If You Are Willing

If You Are Willing
Read Matthew 8:1-4
 
This account of Jesus’ compassion is amazing and beautiful, because in the first century, leprosy was a slow and painful killer that was almost always fatal. The few survivors that overcame the disease were often left with hideous and painful physical scars.  They also had to deal with the emotional scars left by a superstitious public that believed that contracting the disease was to be put under God’s curse.

Newsletter-The Power Within

The Power Within
 
God’s Spirit works in every believer. He doesn’t limit Himself to pastors and missionaries. If you’ve received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, then residing within you is the same great power that raised Christ from the dead. (See Rom. 8:11.) The Holy Spirit creates godly character in all who follow the Lord.
The fruit of the Spirit is the character and conduct the Holy Spirit produces in believers (Gal. 5:22-23). These are qualities that we can’t generate consistently on our own. Especially in this season, the most powerful message we can give isn’t a testimony or sermon; it’s the life we live when the pressure is on, temptation is tremendous, or we are buried under an avalanche of problems.
