As Christians, we know where our ultimate destination is…HEAVEN. We believe that by accepting Jesus Christ as our lord, song of the living God, and through him our sins are forgiven. HEAVEN IS OURS!!!
My question is..If we know this, why do we still love living an earthly life? We worry about making our life fomfortable here, yet neglet our life to come. I do that everyday. I worry about earthly problems so much. My priorities are not in order. I am working to hard for my earthly life and not hard enough on my heavenly life. ARE YOU DOING THE SAME THING?
Do not store up for yourselves treasure on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where theives break in and steal. But store for yourselves in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, ahd where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will follow
Matthew 6: 19-21
In Jesus we are all cleansed,
Secret Society, or a society with secrets?
We all know that the USA’s frist president was a freemason. Did you know that the national hero of the philippines, Jose Rizal, was a freemason? Also, the Philippines first president, Emilo Aguilnaldo.
As a filipino, I find this very interesting.
Thank you father for granting me a moment of clarity. Tough I do not deserve anything I have, you have blessed me 100 times more than i truly deserve. I am humble and ashamed. I lie, cheat, steal, break your commandments on an everyday basis, YET YOU ARE STILL THERE. How great is your love that you would tolerate my actions!!! My moment of clarity is that i now fully understand what you expect from me. I have taken from you , without giving back. I have tremendous gifts and abilities, yet i do not use it to glorigy your name.
2011 is the year I glorify your name. This is going to be an amazing journey. Through God anything is possible. What surprises will be awaiting me on this journey. I ask that you pray for me. Pray that i may do my share in bring people to Jesus
In his name I live,
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
The Lord our Savior offers peace!!!! Through Jesus all is attainable. Reading the bible, we can see that through Jesus, anything is possible. The same thought process can be used in terms or peace and understanding in terms of our emotions.
When we have problems we rationalize a solution. We think of ways to “get out of the situaion”. By offereing up our concerns to Jesus, we leave it up to him. How great is it to know that we can offer up our concerns to our Savior, and he will put them to ease. How many nights have you spent tossing and turning because of a problem? Money, Relationships, Children, Work, School, etc. etc. We have all had those kinds of nights. In fact, I had one just last week. I can vividly remember dropping on my knees and yelling our the lords name. I offered up the problem to him and told him, I leave it all up to you. TRUST IN THE DECISIONS THE LORD MAKES!!! We trust him in good time, we must learn to trust him in bad times!!!
Now mind you, that the solution Jesus has, may not be what you want. It may be the total opposite. We must trust that the decisions the Lord has made is with our best interest in hand. Like the verse says; …the peace of God…transcends all understanding…
Glory to the one who deserves all praises…JESUS!!!
