Happy Easter! To Know You Will Be in Heaven

If you haven’t asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, ask Jesus today to save you and forgive you of your sins. Give your life to God! Believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and rose from the dead so you can have a relationship with God, know and experience His love, joy, peace, forgiveness and salvation and spend eternity in heaven with God. Happy Easter!

Hope to see you in Heaven one day!

May God’s rich blessings be upon you!
In the love of Christ,

Americans Must Not Allow Abortion

If enough Americans unite, the killing of babies can be outlawed.

Abortion is so wicked and evil. If enough Bible believing Christians, Catholics and people who value life will unite and stand together, they must have enough power to insist that abortion be illegal in America. They can start with their cities, their states. What can be done to outlaw abortion? Christians must not allow this in America.

If Americans allow the legalized killing of the most innocent, the most vulnerable – babies inside and outside the womb – precious and valuable gifts from God – don’t think America will stop with the killing of babies.

Where is the fear of God in the land?

Where is the valuing of human life?

We value life because God created it – because people are made in the image of God. We value life because God commands us to love one another. To care for each other. Because it is the right thing to do. Yes there is such a thing as the right thing to do. There is honor in caring for your children.

People don’t want to believe in God. People don’t want to believe that God created the earth and humankind and that we have a responsibility to Him. They want to believe there was a “big bang.” They want to believe the amazing, intelligent human being evolved from monkeys. This is what happens when people don’t believe and fear God: they allow the killing of babies.

Abortion is not driven by compassion. It’s driven by fear, selfishness and greed. The abortion industry makes so much money selling the body parts of the innocent. Their blood is crying out. There needs to be an outcry in the land.

We must not allow abortion in America. For those who would say there is nothing they can do, there is always something they can do.

We need revival and repentance in America. We need people to realize their need for a Savior and forgiveness and to lives their lives in the love of God. Let us pray fervently for revival in America and for abortion to be outlawed.

Thankful Dr. Dobson is speaking out to save the lives of babies. Please read his words carefully:

“Dear Friends,

I write you today to express my great alarm for this nation on many levels, especially related to a bill that was passed by the New York state legislature on January 22nd, the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. The new law is called the “Reproductive Health Act,” although it has nothing to do with health care. It represents one of the most wicked and egregious assaults on humanity in our history. We gasp when we hear of concentration camps in Germany where 6 million Jews, Gypsies, and other “undesirables” were killed by Nazis in World War II. That chapter in history is still unthinkable. But, here in America? We claim to be one nation under God. Are we really going to commit infanticide on the youngest and most vulnerable among us? The answer is Yes! We have slaughtered more than 60 million babies to date, and the killing goes on.

In short, the New York legislature has now legalized the murder of tiny human beings from conception through nine months of a pregnancy. But now, the killing will continue even after birth. If the determination to murder a child is not successful and if he or she somehow enters the delivery room alive, an attendant or orderly can stand by idly while life ebbs away on a porcelain table. The New York law does not even require a licensed physician to oversee this dastardly procedure.

It is painful to consider the plight of a dying child, but we must.”


Who Are Your Friends?

Who we hang out with can have a big influence on our lives. Who are your friends? Not only people you hang out with in person, but who are your “media” friends? Who you follow on twitter, on facebook, who you watch on TV, who you spend time with through books – fictional and real life people.

The Bible says, “He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm,” (Proverbs 13:20).

In this interview with recording artist Clay Crosse, we discuss the importance of who you hang with as friends. Who you hang out with can actually be a matter of life or death.

In the life of Jehoram king of Judah, we see:

The Importance of Who You Marry:

“He followed the ways of the kings of Israel, as the house of Ahab had done, for he married a daughter of Ahab. He did evil in the eyes of the LORD,” (2 Chronicles 21:6).

In the life of Ahaziah king of Judah we see:

The Importance of Who You Let Influence You and Whose Counsel You Take

“Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem one year. His mother’s name was Athaliah, a granddaughter of Omri.
He too followed the ways of the house of Ahab, for his mother encouraged him to act wickedly.
He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, as the house of Ahab had done, for after his father’s death they became his advisers, to his undoing.
He also followed their counsel when he went with Joram son of Ahab king of Israel to wage war against Hazael king of Aram at Ramoth Gilead. The Arameans wounded Joram;
so he returned to Jezreel to recover from the wounds they had inflicted on him at Ramoth in his battle with Hazael king of Aram. Then Ahaziahson of Jehoram king of Judah went down to Jezreel to see Joram son of Ahab because he had been wounded,” (2 Chronicles 22:2-6).

Notice it says “He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, as the house of Ahab had done, for after his father’s death they became his advisers, to his undoing.” He listened to his advisors and soon after was his downfall and death. Be careful whose advice you take and who you let advise you! Notice also it says “He too followed the ways of the house of Ahab, for his mother encouraged him to act wickedly.”

Don’t let rotten friends ruin your life! When speaker and author Jimmy Evans became saved, he knew he had to get away from his friends in order to continue in his faith and follow Christ.

For more on what kinds of friends to avoid and people to stay away from, please see Proverbs 1 and Proverbs 2. (The Bible actually gives us permission not to hang out with people!)

My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them. If they say, “Come along with us … do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths,” (Proverbs 1:10,11, 15).

Where’s that 1980’s ad “Just Say No” when you need it? It’s okay to say no.

For teenage girls and young adult girls to hang out with good friends, please see my post about some “great friends.” They just might change their lives forever in a good way.
Be sure to check out Clay Crosse’s book “Dashboard Jesus.” It’s a book for men but one of my all time favorites because it’s so true, practical and helpful for anyone’s walk with Jesus.

The Gospel is the Answer To the Problems of the World: Love Like Jesus

By Sarah Kittle

Do you see wars, famine, human trafficking, terror, drug and alcohol addictions, abuse, families falling apart?

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the solution to the problems of the world. Follow Jesus and you can help bring an end to suffering in the world.

Many of the world’s problems are problems of the heart.

Jesus tells us, “For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander,” (Matthew 15:19).

And if the “heart of the problem” is the heart, we need the Gospel. For only God can truly change the heart.

Why is there human trafficking? Because of lust and greed. Two things Jesus teaches against. If people refused to give into lust and greed, human trafficking would stop. No more sellers. No more customers. No more prisoners.

When the Gospel is spread and people come to know Jesus, their hearts are changed. Their minds are renewed. They change their way of thinking. And when people are true followers of Christ, they will follow His ways. After all, Jesus said in John 14:23, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching…”

So what did Jesus teach?

Jesus said: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments,” (Matthew 22:37-40).

Love your neighbor as yourself? Can you imagine the changes that would take place in the world if people did this?

Jesus teaches, “‘“Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,” and “love your neighbor as yourself.”’” (Matthew 19:18-19).

When people are truly believing and following God’s ways, they will live it out in their lives.

“We know that we have come to know Him if we obey His commands. The man who says, ‘I know him’ but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him,” (1 John 2:3-4). “But if anyone obeys His word, God’s love is truly made complete in him…” (1 John 2:5).

The problems with drugs and alcohol is that many people use them to try to fix themselves, dull the pain, escape their problems or fill a void. But the problem with that is… they never can. They are used as an escape, when they are really only a trap. Used to fill a void, when they only leave one empty. Drugs and alcohol addictions don’t create solutions or make problems better… they only make problems worse. Drunk drivers. Abusive behavior. Lack of productivity. Only Jesus Christ can fill the void in our hearts. Not fame, not a relationship, not drugs, not sex, not alcohol. Jesus is the only one who can meet a person’s deepest needs. They may not know how to deal with fear, guilt, worry, pain or depression, but if they will look to Jesus, He will help them. He will bring healing. If drug dealers start following Jesus, they will stop selling drugs.

Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full,” (John 10:10).

The problem with famine is not a shortage of food in the world. Our grocery stores are full in America. Eating at restaurants and fast food are an American past time. Can you count how many cooking shows there are on television? One of the reasons people are starving is because of selfishness. Many people don’t share. Many people don’t take the time to give or to reach out to those in need. They don’t make the effort. Jesus teaches His disciples to feed the hungry and to give water to the thirsty. If this instruction was followed, wouldn’t most of famine and dehydration cease?

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and truth,” (I John 3:16-18).

We see Jesus’ compassion for the hungry in Matthew 15:32:

“Jesus called his disciples to him and said, ‘I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may collapse on the way.’” Jesus then miraculously provided food for the people.

Jesus teaches the importance of feeding the hungry and providing a drink for the thirsty in his famous parable of the sheep and the goats: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,” (Matthew 25:35). “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’” (Matthew 25:40). What are you doing for Jesus today?

Orphans. One of the saddest things in the world is children without caretakers and protectors. Children with no present father or mother. Children left vulnerable as prey to those who would hurt them. The Bible teaches Christ’s followers to take care of orphans:

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world,” (James 1:27).

Jesus also warns against harming children: “It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin,” (Luke 17:2).

Consider the breakdown of the family. The Bible teaches marriage to be with one person “till death do you part” and teaches against divorce. The Bible teaches “You shall not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14) and “…You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife…” (Ex. 20:17). Such simple instructions followed would save a lot of marriages!

“Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others,” (Ephesians 2:4). Love and forgiveness is what’s needed.

The Bible instructs parents to teach their children the Word of God and for children to honor their mother and father.

And I could go on and on:

Do not steal

Do not lie

Do not murder.

For anyone willing to honestly look at scientific fact and evidence, abortion is taking a human life. Human life is to be protected, including the unborn, the disabled and the elderly. All human life is valuable because we are made in the image of God. The way you treat people says a lot about you. The way society treats its people – the unborn, the disabled, the sick and the elderly – says a lot about them. What do your actions say about you?

Following Jesus means dying to ourselves – to sinful habits and thoughts and ideas. It means renewing our minds to believe and think in accordance with Jesus’ teaching and live that out in our actions. And part of following Christ is teaching other people to do the same.

Jesus instructs us to “…go and make disciples of all nations… and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…” (Matt 28:19-20).

“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets,” (Matthew 7:12).

If everyone followed Christ and His teachings, wouldn’t the world be a better place?

Jesus tells us, “Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me…” (John 14:21). “He who does not love me will not obey my teaching…” (John 14:24).

“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you,” (John 15:12).

How did Jesus love people? With compassion and understanding. With kindness. Good deeds and sharing the Gospel. By giving His life.

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends,” (John 15:13).

There are many needs and hurting people in the world. If we truly care about people, we will work to eliminate their suffering on earth and care enough about their souls to desire their eternal salvation.

After all, preaching the Gospel is also a command of Jesus:

“He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved…’” (Mark 16:15-16).

If we only focus on social justice issues without sharing the Gospel, we leave out the most important part.

So do what you can to help people. Love your families. Love your spouse and children. Raise your family. Help your siblings, grandparents and parents. Care for children. Help the hungry, thirsty, hurting and afflicted. Do it for Jesus. But don’t leave out the Gospel. The way to remove the darkness is to spread the light. Tell people about Jesus!

“In him [Jesus] was life, and that life was the light of men,” (John 1:4). “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me,’” (John 14:6).

Tell people how much Jesus loves them and that He died on the cross for their sins so they can know God and have eternal life.

“Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent,” (John 17:3).

“But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name,” (John 20:31).

“that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life,” (John 3:15).

Tell them to cry out to Jesus to save them and forgive them of their sins. Let them know God has a good purpose and plan for their life! That God can bring good in their life and there is a reason they are on earth. Their life has meaning and value!

If we try to fix the problems by works alone without sharing the Gospel, we’re not truly solving the problem. We’re not helping their deepest need or getting to the root: the heart.

The world needs a change of heart. It needs more Christ followers. People need Jesus to touch their hearts and heal their lives and families. People need to see how much Jesus loves them and just how valuable they are to God. And how valuable other people are to God. And positive change will happen in this world: in families and schools and neighborhoods, cities and countries.

Although we know from the book of Revelation in the Bible what will come. Not everyone will repent. Not everyone will turn to Christ for the forgiveness of sins. Not everyone will love like Jesus. But don’t let that be you.

As Jesus said in Mark 1:17, “Come, follow me…”

Come love like Jesus.
