Psalms 119:162 I rejoice in your promise like one who finds great spoil. (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

If any of us were to walk down the road and find a couple of twenty-dollar bills we would pick them up and tell most all our friends of our find. If you are reading this you have probably found something worth more than all the money in the world. You have found your relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. This “find” is beyond value. Our question is are we as excited as we would be if we found those twenty dollar bills? Have we told our friends of our “find?” If we found several thousand dollars we would be telling everyone we meet. We have something worth far more than several thousand dollars. We have something that will take us into and through all eternity in the very real Presence of the God of all creation. Are we talking about it? There is more than enough to share. Sharing won’t take any of our eternity away from us but it will bring more people with us and it will please the God Whose Presence we will be in forever. Let’s just not think about this. Let’s do this. Pass on God’s plan for eternity in His Presence. It’s available to all who will say yes to His Son, Jesus Christ.

Let’s Be Hot

Rev 3:16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth

Many people have the wrong interpretation of what is happening in the world today.  There are wars, terrorists, economic instability, political and government instability and natural disasters.  We tend to put our emphasis on those things in relation to our own comfort, security, prosperity or political preferences.  We fail to see God is trying to get the attention of lukewarm and cold people.  He doesn’t want a single person lost from Him.  When things get tough a lot of people turn their attention to God.  Fear and insecurity seem to awaken the need of something missing inside us – God’s peace.  God wants more than the outer circumstances to catch the attention of people.  He wants us to be active and vocal in telling and showing others the way to God’s peace.  God is our Source.  It is more important to know we will not be “spit out of His mouth” than any other thing.  All others are temporary.  God is eternal.  Lets be hot.  Lets be vocal.  Lets be active.
