President Bashing And Other Stuff

Image
Have you ever harshly criticized the current President of the United States? How about our previous President or the one previous to him? Did you talk bad about him and even announce to the world on social media how bad this person is? Whether it be through thought or verbally spoken, I think we've all been there and done that. I choose to write about this because I saw a bit of president bashing on a social media site the other day. 'What have we become', I thought.

Later, I was watching a documentary on World War II and saw some clips of people bashing President Roosevelt. 'Hmmm, it's been happening all along', I thought.

I totally believe that it's ok to have an opinion after all the Lord did give us a brain to use. But, sometimes the opinions go a bit to far, I think.

A little disclaimer here: I am not perfect whatsoever nor do I claim to be so I speak to myself in this message as well, so here goes.

Take In The Living Water And Never Thirst Again!

Image
"Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”" -Jesus (John 4:13-14 NKJV)The woman of Samaria had a face to face encounter with Jesus and didn't even know it. Totally understandable. Although not face to face, those of us who are now walking with Jesus had the same experience and didn't even know it.

Jesus saved us countless times from ourselves, our foolishness then the day came when the Lord opened our eyes to our sin and thus repentance followed.

As His children, we called on the Lord, asked questions, dug into His Word and He gave us answers.

Today, this day, let's us call on the Lord once again for His guidance and leadership. Let's ask for His living water that we may not thirst again today.

"Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance,...and do not think to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones." -John (Matthew 3:8-9 NKJV)

John the Baptist spoke these words to the Pharisees and Sadducees who came by to see him baptizing people at the Jordan river.

Jesus describes the Pharisees and Sadducees like this...

"“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness." -Jesus (Matthew 23:27-28 NKJV)John, a man of God, knew these men were all talk and no action so he called them out on it. John was pretty straight forward, but he also did not overstep his boundaries. He knew that only God can change a person. He was there as a vess…

Fully Trusting in God!

"Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife" -Matthew 1:24 (NKJV)Something totally unexplainable had happened to Joseph. His soon to be wife Mary became pregnant. Problem was... Joseph wasn't the one who got her pregnant. 
In the book of Matthew 1:18 it says that Mary had become pregnant by way of the Holy Spirit. (What in the world...!?) 
To the scientist this would be considered totally illogical and wacky. This may even sound totally out of the ordinary to the believer - not a normal thing here.
It certainly was out of the ordinary for Joseph as the story goes on to say that Joseph was going to leave Mary. He didn't believe that Mary randomly got pregnant out of thin air. That was not his first thought I'm sure. I know I wouldn't have thought that either.
There was a turn of events though. Joseph, a man who fully trusted in God, ended up not leaving Mary. He stayed with her and pushed forward as a…

Nothing to Fear!

Image
As a son or daughter of God our Father, we can rest in peace and shun fear of anything because we have our heavenly Father who has our back.A few months ago I read that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth...

Then a few sentences further in Genesis chapter one, I read that God said the following:

"Let there be light..."
"Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters..."
"Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place..."
"Let the earth bring forth grass..."
"Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens..."
"Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures..."
"Let the earth bring forth the living creature..."
"Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness..."Then I read a special emphasis verse that God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Feeling Full of Joy?

Image
How can you not be joyful when you have been born again? You are a new creation. A new person in Christ. The old things have passed away and all things have become new.(I'm not only writing to new believers but to the oldies also.)

This is what happened...

All your sins were forgiven, and you became a new person because the Holy Spirit now resides within you.

Other awesome things that happen now that you are in-Christ are...

-You get to read the Bible and understand it.
-You get to converse with the creator of this planet, that is the Lord.
-You get to serve the creator of the universe while you sojourn here on earth.
-You get to share Jesus with everyone.
-When your tent shrivels up and goes away, you get to go to Heaven and finally be with Jesus.

That should be enough to bring you joy, but that's just the tip of the ice berg! There's more awesomeness where that came from!

Nothing in this planet can provide the joy that only the Lord brings through His goodness upon us.

Ok, so you&#…
