In His Praise — October 21, 2018

God is our defender, protector, guide and stay! God is unbreakable and unshakeable! There are not a lot of things that we can depend on in this ever changing world. Relationships fail, jobs are lost, health declines; but our Heavenly Father never changes. His love for us is real and lasting. His desire is to bless us and provide the very best for us. 

God’s own Word tells us in Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Again in  John 16:33, Jesus reminds us, “But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

 Choose salvation today and become a child of God and you too will have a friend that will never leave or change, someone that will always love you and always desire the very best for you. Jesus is that someone and He stands ready to accept you and free you from the burden of sin. 

What wonderful good news!

A wonderful promise is found in Romans 10:13. Paraphrasing this verse it says, “everyone that calls on the name of Jesus will be saved”, not might be saved or if you follow all the directions you could be saved. It says you will be saved simply by calling on Jesus. 

When the surrounding verses are read, we find that Paul is talking about different kinds of people. Here he names Jew and Gentile, but the message is that anybody may receive salvation. Christ died on the cross to provide saving grace for all people. Race, gender, occupation , education or any other difference make no difference to God. When we ask Jesus in our hearts and accept His salvation it is a sure thing. We become one of many in the great family of God.

Now that is good news!

“Come now. let us settle this matter,” says the Lord, “Though your sins be like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18) This is the good news from East Point Cumberland Presbyterian Church for today. This verse from the book of Isaiah is a wonderful promise of assurance from our Lord.

Even though we have sinned (and we all have) God says that He will take those sins away and make us clean and pure before Him. All He asks is that we come to Him and accept this great salvation. 

Isn’t God is good to make becoming His child so simple and easy? He loves us that much! And that is good news to celebrate!

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!
