Today's Good News


June 12                       Revelation 14:12

12 This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently, obeying his commands and maintaining their faith in Jesus. 


We are called to endure by Jesus.  He loves us and is committed to us therefore we can have confidence that our endurance will culminate in a stronger faith in Christ.  As Jesus ministers to us in the midst of our endurance He demonstrates His deep love for us as He walks through the trial with us.  He is here.  Jesus loves you. 




June 11                       Revelation 13:10

10Anyone who is destined for prison will be taken to prison. Anyone destined to die by the sword will die by the sword. This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful. 

We are called to endure to the end.  Pay attention for that means that in this world we will have trouble, trouble, and more trouble.  Chaos and pain will dog our steps.  Sometimes it doesn’t seem fair but in fact this life is but a breath and then we will put on the eternal.  Live life gently knowing that this is not the end. 



June 10                       Hebrews 10:36

36 Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.


We are called to stand with the Lord.  We endure patiently whatever stones and arrows the world throws at us for we know that He will take care of us.  If we stand with the Lord we will not forget whom we belong to and what He has called us to do.  Jesus is Lord and we are seeking to serve Him. 




June 9                                     2 Timothy 2:11-13

11This is a trustworthy saying: If we die with him, we will also live with him. 12 If we endure hardship, we will reign with him. If we deny him, he will deny us. 13 If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is. 


Jesus is faithful.  Once you accept Him as Lord and Savior nothing will ever separate you from Him. He is Lord, and king and desires that you know Him as fully as you are willing.  Trust in Jesus and He will never leave you. 




June 8                                     1 Thessalonians 5:17

17 Never stop praying. 


Pray every day.  Pray for others.  Pray for yourself.  Pray for your day.  Pray for healing of those around you.  Pray that you will be able to communicate the Gospel.  Pray for wisdom and knowledge.  Pray for the lost.  Pray for your family.  Pray, pray, pray for you never get beyond the need for prayer.  Pray!



June 7                                     1 Thessalonians 5:5-6          

5 For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night. 6 So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded.


There is no such thing as darkness for darkness is simply the absence of light.  Light shines in the darkness whether a pinprick of light or blinding light.  You choose to walk in the light as He is in the light.  Follow Jesus and you will never stumble in the darkness.  Jesus is Lord. 




June 6                         Romans 12:14-16

14 Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them. 15 Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all! 


We live in a world that rewards arrogance and penalizes humility.  You choose to be humble and follow Jesus.  You choose to set aside your pride and bend the knee to the Lord’s Word.  Be humble and the Lord will give you the wisdom and knowledge you need to navigate the chaos and difficulty of this life and greater blessings in the life to come. 




June 5                                     Romans 12:12

12 Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble and keep on praying. 


Three things we care called to do: rejoice for our confidence is in Jesus and He will provide for us; deal with trouble patiently-it often takes time to work through and every day, every day keep praying for the Lord God knows where you are and what you need.  Rejoice. 




June 4                         2 Corinthians 9:6-7

6 Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. 7 You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” 


God loves a cheerful giver for in the giver is the belief that the Lord God will meet all of their needs. At the least you must be a tither. Only when you’ve given 10% are you able to give offerings to the Lord God Almighty.  Give and He will give to you more than you can imagine.  We have a loving and caring Father.  Jesus is Lord.  Give. 




June 3                         2 Corinthians 8:7                 

7 Since you excel in so many ways—in your faith, your gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love from us —I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving.


Giving is a faith act.  We give all that we have to Jesus.  He makes sure we have what we need.  He gives us peace and joy.  Then He enables us to walk in the way of His wisdom and knowledge.  Give your life to Jesus and He will train you up in the way you should go.
