Reflections

 

GOD EXPECTS HOLINESS

Greetings and blessings to all of you.  In the light of what is going on now; economic distress, physical illness, death, high anxiety, domestic violence, protests, hate and greed and dishonesty it makes me think of verses in the book of Romans. The first one is found in Romans 3:10-18 “as it is written there is no one righteous not even one; there is no one who understands no one who seeks God all have turned away they have together become worthless there I no one who does good not even one. Their throats are open graves their tongues practice deceit. The poison of vipers is on the... (Read More)

IS YOUR GOD TOO SMALL?

Greetings and blessings to all of you.  For the last 2 months the COVID virus has been in the news as well as the upcoming election. For the practicing Christian we adhere to Psalm 46 “God is our refuge and our strength a very present help in trouble.  Therefore, we will not fear though the earth be removed and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea….”. There is a book  written by JB Phillips called "You God is too Small." In it he expressed how some of us (even Christians) act as though their circumstances are too c... (Read More)

RESPONDING LIKE A TRUE SAINT

Greetings and blessings to all of you.  I have been thinking about the world’s response to the current events.  They are similar to the days of Pharaoh in the OT.  God wanted His chosen people (the Israelites) to know him, to honor Him, and to obey Him no matter what was going on.  He chose Moses to inform the political leader of the Egyptians (King Pharaoh) that “By this you shall know I am the Lord”. Pharaoh responded with, “Who is the Lord that I should obey His voice to let Israelites go?” I do not know the Lord, nor will I let Israelites g... (Read More)

ALIVE IN CHRIST - HE HAS RISEN

Greetings and blessings to all of you. We are past GOOD FRIDAY and unto RESURRECTION SUNDAY.  AMEN!!! Do you know what that means for us? He died and was buried and HE ROSE. Why did this all have to take Place?  In John 11:25-26 it says “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live even though he dies and whoever lives and believes in me will never die”. Do you believe this?  Let us look at some of our similarities in this verse and our new life. Do you except the fact that by Jesus dying on the cross we should be dying also? Do you believe tha... (Read More)

OUR SAVIOR and HOLY WEEK

Greetings and blessings to all of you.  This has been a difficult week. We all had to learn to do things differently. At this time the Lockdown has been extended to the end of the month. But rather than focus on that let us focus on this week..  HOLY WEEK.  Yeh!!!This week is a time to recall the events leading up to Jesus death and his humble entry into Jerusalem. The climate in the Middle East was in chaos. The Romans were oppressing the people of the land. The Pharisees were the political group oppressing the people with the LAWS that they interpreted as they saw fit bel... (Read More)

THIS GIFT CALLED "TIME"

Greetings and blessings to all of you.  Hope everyone is safe and healthy.  I must say I am respecting this time of Lockdown. It has allowed me to respect “the gift of time”. Some people have lost their lives already because of this virus and went on to heaven or hell. But we are still here. So for me {and I hope it is for you as well} you are using this TIME  wisely …  “redeeming the time because the days are evil”.  I could use the time to be very self- focused and do “good things” like a “good responsible person&rdquo...

IN A CRISIS..TURN TO CHRIST

Greetings and blessings to all of you.  We are in a health crisis. It has unleashed a near panic in our nation.  Many wonder is this the “signs of the times?”  God talks about birth pains. He said there will be wars, and rumors of wars. We have them now. Check the news concerning Iran, Korea, and Russia. God said we will have pestilence. Well, we now are dealing with the coronavirus.  He also said the world will suffer famine…take a look at Africa, the Caribbean and SE Asia. What about fires, floods, the prevalence of evil., the ever-increasing selfishnes... (Read More)

THE "GOOD PERSON" FAITH

Greetings and blessings to all of you. I have been thinking about the Simplicity of the Gospel. By definition it means “the teaching or revelation of Christ.” A stumbling block for most people is Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.” When ministering or sharing the “Good News” we must explain that by nature we are all separated from God. He is holy but we are human and do not measure up to His perfect standard. We are sinful, and “the wages of sin is death” Romans 6:23 Sharing the Gospel can become complicated when... (Read More)

GOD USES PAIN AND SUFFERING TO HIS GLORY

Greetings and blessings to all of you. I have been thinking about the right way to respond to suffering?  Why? Because when I see evil and the suffering of people around the world and in our nation, I want to make sense of it. When I hear others speak of abuse, desertion, and disease my heart is saddened.  I will give them the verse “We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope.” (Romans 5:3-4) I will remind them of the verse, in I Peter 4:16 “yet if any man suffers as a Christ...

DO NOT FEAR DEATH

Greetings and blessings to all of you. I am very grateful that I have eternal life. I am so happy I am not alienated from Christ. I have made peace with my Savior. Have you?  Heb. 11:31 says, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” My sister has passed on but you and I are still here. We have an opportunity to heed to the warning. In Joshua 14-15 it says, “Now therefore fear the Lord serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served (on the other side of the River and in Egypt). Serve the Lord! And if it seems ... (Read More)
