"You are well acquainted
with the favor shown you by our Lord Jesus Christ:
how for your sake he made himself poor
though he was rich,
so that you might become rich by his poverty."
2 Corinthians 8:9

Jesus became poor.
He lived in poverty.
He was not wealthy.
He chose that way of life.
It gives us much to think about.
Why would he do that?
He wanted to teach us something.
He wanted us to know that money is not that important.
Yesterday Apple Computer dropped over 50 per-cent in value.
Is your life based on wealth?
You need security.
Where do you find it?
It is not in the Stock Market.
One day the money will all be gone.
It will be worthless.
What will last?
What will endure?
That is what Jesus was trying to teach us.
Seek eternal things.
Seek security in God.
Seek everlasting life.

Jesus said,

if two of you join your voices on earth
to pray for anything whatever,
it shall be granted you
by my Father in heaven.
Where two or three are gathered in my name,
there am I in their midst."

Yesterday at work some people lost their jobs.
They were asked to leave.
It made for a very stressful and somber day.
So pray for those people to find other jobs.

Jesus said,
"You cannot tell by careful watching
when the reign of God will come.
Neither is it a matter of reporting
that it is 'here' or 'there.'
The reign of God is already in your midst."

The reign of God is here.
The glory of God has been revealed.

I want to be with you.

(September 16, 2000 8:27 AM CDT)

Jesus said,
"Anyone among you who aspires to greatness
must serve the rest,
and whoever wants to rank first among you
must serve the needs of all.
Such is the case with the Son of Man
who has come,
not to be served by others,
but to serve,
to give his own life as a ransom for the many."
Matthew 20:26-28

Christ is our example.
He shows us the way.
He offered up his own life.
He paid the ransom.
He freed us from imprisonment.
He serves us.
He is thoughtful and kind.

Aspire to greatness.

Redeem us.
Save us.

while holding fast to the word of life."

They abandoned their father Zebedee,
who was in the boat with the hired men,
and went off in his company."
Mark 1:20

Jesus summons you.
He calls you to come away.
He wants to get your full attention.
He wants you to follow him.
It seems impossible to drop everything.
It is a question of priorities.
What is important to you?
Is prayer a priority?
Is Sunday a day of worship for you?
Do you ever read the Bible?
You give yourself away by how you live.
Put Jesus first.
The unimportant things will fall to the side.
Abandon watching TV for example.
