In His Praise — April 1, 2018

The good news today is found in Matthew 28:6, “He is not here; He is risen, just as he said.” Jesus is alive and well! He lives in every Christian heart and His light shines in all His children.  

Jesus loves each of us as if we were the only person on earth. He showed His love by dying on the cross for all our sins. But Christ did not stay dead, He arose from the grave and He lives forever! He gives us salvation, eternal life and a peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7).

Thanks be to God for His wonderful gift!

Do you ever feel lonely, left out or forgotten? Do you think that no one cares about you or is interested in anything you do or say? Do you sometimes feel that you have no friends? If so, I have some great news for you!! God loves you and cares about you! He is interested in what you are doing and wants you to talk to Him and spend time with Him. He wants to be your best friend!

You may say, “That can’t be, I am not important in the world, I am not special.” But you are wrong! In God’s eyes you are very special. He created you, He loves you, and He will forgive you.

God desires that we “seek His face”, (2 Chronicles 8:14) that is try to live as though He is our constant companion. Proverbs 18:24b describes the Lord as a friend that is closer than a brother. God even sent Jesus to die for the sins of all humanity so that everyone could have a relationship with Him. (John 3:16)

What more could God do to prove His love for you? God does care deeply for you and He greatly desires to be your friend. It’s all up to you, just accept His love and salvation and you’ll never be alone again.

The good news today is that God loves you and you can receive salvation from Him. Each of you are special in the eyes of the Lord. In fact, you are so special to Him that He sent Jesus to die for your sins and for the sins of the world, and therefore to give people redemption.

In this world there is so much evil and it seems that Satan is everywhere, but it is great to know that God has the antidote for Satan’s evil. That antidote is the love of Jesus. This free gift of salvation is for everyone and is easily accessed. You only have to ask Jesus into your heart, repent, be sorry for your sins and salvation can be yours.

It may not always be easy to stay obedient to God, but He will never leave you and will always help you grow in your walk with Him. God’s love is good news that is available to everyone!

Our good news today comes from a verse of scripture found in Galatians 4:4. This scripture tells us that Jesus was sent to this world “to redeem those under the law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.” When Jesus came into the world as that tiny baby, it set in motion God’s plan for our salvation.

Try as we may, no one could have ever kept all of the laws of the Old Testament perfectly. Of course we still need to strive to follow Jesus commands but, because of Jesus, we no longer have to adhere to a list of rules and regulations in order to be saved. When we repent from our sins, accept the salvation that Jesus so freely provided through His death and resurrection and ask Him into our life He saves us and we become part of His family.

As we begin this Advent season let’s rejoice in the good news that Jesus came to seek and to save those that are lost, and He is still seeking and saving today!

Celebrating Veteran’s Day this weekend reminds us that as Americans we enjoy many rights and privileges. One of the most important of these is the right to worship God openly and freely. Although we rightly honor our service men and women for all that they have done and continue to do to make our country great, it is ultimately the love of God that has blessed America the most.

Because of His unending love for each individual, God sent Jesus to give us the greatest freedom of all — the right to choose salvation and eternal life. We could never earn this privilege, nor do we deserve it. But our loving Father offers it freely — we are only required to accept it!

Now that is the good news that we can celebrate every day!

The good news for today is that God gives us redemption and calls us his sons and daughters! If we have accepted Christ’s salvation and have Him in our hearts, then we can truly call God our Father and Jesus our brother. As a child of God we are highly favored and blessed by Him; in Ephesians 1:7 it says that God’s grace is “lavished on us all wisdom and understanding”.

When we accept these gifts from God and our hearts are changed we will want to love, care and help others more; and we will want to share the message of salvation with the unsaved. It is great to know that God equips us with what we need in order to do His will, all because He loves us and calls us His own.

In His Praise — June 25, 2017

Do you ever have a rough day? Usually when things go wrong we complain, whine, pout and sometimes lash out at others. We, as human beings, have the idea that we deserve to have everything go smoothly all the time.

But, think about this; Jesus had the roughest night and day in history! He was arrested for no reason, underwent an mock and unjust trial, was severely beaten, humiliated and then nailed to a wooden cross to die a merciless death. But did Jesus complain? No, He did not. Jesus prayed for those that were inflicting this torture upon Him and He prayed for us too.

Why would the almighty Son of God succumb to such abuse? It’s simple, because He loved those people and He loves us too. Jesus knew that taking on all the sins of the world was the only way possible for humankind to be made right with God. Jesus took all the sins and wrong doings for all time and accepted the punishment that He did not deserve, simply because He loves us and wanted to give us a way to be saved from eternal damnation.

Jesus desires a relationship with you and me that will last forever. He was willing to suffer through the worst night and day imaginable to give us this wonderful gift of salvation. Forgiveness of our sins and eternal life with Him —what good news this should be to all of us!

If you have not accepted Jesus gift of salvation, please don’t wait any longer. Make this change in your life by asking Jesus to forgive you of your sins and tell him that you want him to live in your heart. The Savior is waiting to hear from you! He loves you dearly!

When something good happens to us, don’t we want to share it with our loved ones and those closest to us? That was what happened on the road to Emmaus to two of Jesus’ followers. The story is found in Luke 24:13-18. There were two walking along discussing the recent events of Jesus’ death and the mystery of His resurrection when Jesus himself joined them! At first they didn’t recognized Him, but later Jesus revealed himself to them, but then vanished again. The scripture says that the two followers got up at once, returned to Jerusalem, (which was about seven miles away), found the rest of the disciples and shared with them what had happened. They had good news that Jesus was alive and they were eager to share it!

We too can share the good news of Jesus with others. We can share His word and His love. We can share how He died for our sins, rose again to life and gives the free gift of salvation to anyone that will repent of their sins, ask forgiveness and accept Him into their life.

We like the followers on the Emmaus road have exciting news that others need to hear. Let’s boldly share it with them.

In His Praise — April 9, 2017

The “good news” today is found in the book of John, chapter 11, verses 25 and 26. Here Jesus is talking to his friend Martha, who has just experienced the death of her brother only days before. Jesus is reassuring Martha that her brother Lazarus will live again and Martha agrees that she believes in the resurrection of believers after death. But Jesus goes even deeper by telling Martha that He is the resurrection and those that believe in Him will never die! As we follow the rest of this story in chapter 11 we find that moments later Jesus summoned Lazarus from his grave and Lazarus did indeed come back to life. What joy Lazarus and his family must have felt to be reunited once again! What a blessing it must have been for them to be able to call Jesus their friend! Perhaps Lazarus, Martha and their other sister Mary told this story over and over to others to witness about their Lord.

We too can have the joy of calling Jesus our friend. This eternal life that Jesus offers is not just for an elect few, it is for anyone that will believe on Him and accept His salvation. The “good news” is the same for us as it was for Martha. Just as Jesus said to her “…he who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die…” He also speaks to us. Jesus took the punishment for all our wrongdoings when He died on the cross, but, praise God, He came back to life and conquered death that we too might have eternal life.

The good news from East Point C.P. Church today is that we don’t deserve God’s grace and mercy, but He gives it to us freely! God pours out His blessings on us and on our lives because He loves us. How do we know this? Because He sent His only Son, Jesus, who took our sins upon Himself, died on the cross and rose again to life so that we could have salvation. All we have to do is accept it and let Jesus in our hearts. It is not complicated and it is not difficult, God is waiting with loving arms to give His free gifts of salvation, mercy and grace.

Let’s share this good news with everyone!
