Today's Good News


08/18               Mark 9:23

23 “What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” 


Yes, you can live a faithful, exciting and joyous life.  It requires that you develop your faith in Jesus and live with the confidence that He is with you.  The Bible, prayer times and quiet times are required, or the World will run over you.  Oh, and you can’t live partly in the world and partly in Christ.  Choose who you will follow and you will constantly be changing to become more like Jesus. 




08/17               Psalm 46:10

10 “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” 


Man rails and screams at God.  You aren’t there man says.  God is there and one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord.  Do not let the World ding your faith.  Believe in the Lord Jesus and He will walk with you every day of your life and be there to carry you into eternity when you pass away from this life.  Jesus is Lord. 



08/16               John 8:24

24 That is why I said that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I AM who I claim to be, you will die in your sins.” 


Believe in Jesus and live.  This is a critical decision that we each must make.  Jesus is Lord and when we believe in Him we are cleansed of our unrighteousness and given new life in Christ Jesus.  Believe in Jesus and live. 




08/15               Romans 12:3

3 Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. 


Jesus is God’s everything.  Without Him we can do nothing.  All that we accomplish is either in Jesus and by His strength or worthless.  We can do nothing without Jesus. 



08/14               Philippians 4:13

13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. 


Life is hard and challenging and often attacks us but when we love Jesus and are submitted to Him He will see us through whatever we face.  The key is a relationship with Jesus.  Do you have a relationship with Him?  If you do He will see you through any difficulty you face.  Jesus is Lord. 




08/13               James 1:5-8

5 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. 6 But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. 7 Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do. 


Our Lord is real.  He is alive and well and He lives in us.  When we know that and live with the understanding that He is indeed a part of our life we will live a different kind of life.  We cannot love the Lord with our whole heart and still be caught up in the world. 




08/12               James 2:24

24 So you see, we are shown to be right with God by what we do, not by faith alone.


If we have faith in the Lord, and we believe in Jesus, we will act differently.  You must change.  All are dead in their trespasses and sin and when you come to Christ He changes you. Love the Lord, love the people you are with and serve with gladness.   




08/11               Hebrews 11:6

6 And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. 


You have to make up your mind-Do you believe God? Or not?  The Lord is waiting for us to make up our mind. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and He will work actively in your life. 




08/10               2 Corinthians 5:7

7 For we live by believing and not by seeing. 


One day we will stand face to face with Jesus seeing Him bodily but today we have confidence in Him and trust Him by reading His Word, listening to Him and obeying Him.  We are faith walking in Christ. 




08/09               Proverbs 3:5-6

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. 


We are called to have a simple, complete trust in the Lord.  We cannot explain Him.  We often do not understand Him.  We always know that He loves us totally and that every thought He has towards us is a thought for good.  I obey Him and listen to Him and He always guides me in the right way.  Jesus is Lord.
