Today's Good News


4/02            Zephaniah 3:1-2

How terrible it will be for rebellious, polluted Jerusalem, the city of violence and crime.

It proudly refuses to listen even to the voice of the LORD. No one can tell it anything; it refuses all correction. It does not trust in the LORD or draw near to its God.



The world is wrong. Jesus is Lord. The lost need Christ. Without Jesus things are not going to work out all right.

Sometimes I forget just how simple the Christian life is. Jesus is my plumb line. As I live my life day to day, I can check with Him to keep my balance. He will provide the answers to my questions. He will bring sanity to chaotic situations.

For the Christian life to be simple, I must do my part. Time with God is required. Reading His Word is the basic key to simplicity. Thinking about what His Word says equips me to face the unknown.

How do I come to grips with the rebellion and chaos of the world? Love the Lord God with all my heart and all my soul and with everything that is in me. And love my neighbor as myself.



Fellowship was His aim in creating me.

Equipping me was His goal.

I chose my own way. It broke His heart.

But still He loved me and walked beside me.

My heart and mind were foolishly distracted.

The world has ways of leading us along.

I fought the fight of riches and desire.

My heart ached and bled within my soul.

Finally all I saw was death and destruction.

Help me Lord I was wrong.

He was waiting for me to see Him standing there.

I love you He said walk with me.
