Will He find faith? Will He find love?

A teenager asked me this unexpected question, “How do we prepare for the coming of Christ?”

“The God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory never desires for anyone to perish, but for all to come to eternal life. Now this is eternal life: that they KNOW the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom God has sent.” (John 17:3)

The Garden In You

When God created the world, He spoke the Word “Let there be …” into existence and saw that it was GOOD!

When God created man, He said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”  So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:26-28)

Daily Loaded!

Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And FORGET NOT ALL HIS BENEFITS:
Who forgives ALL your iniquities,
Who heals ALL your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103:1-5)

A Believer’s Normal!

A believer’s “normal” is SUPERNATURAL in nature if you SEE who you are and whose you are.

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:12-13)
