The angel Gabriel said to him,
"Do not be frightened, Zechariah;

for he will be great in the eyes of the Lord."

Lately on the radio they have been playing
a song by Avalon on the Oxygen CD .
It is track 5 "I Don't Wanna Go".
Take a listen.

"May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,
grant you a spirit of wisdom and insight to know him clearly.
May he enlighten your innermost vision
that you may know the great hope to which he has called you,
the wealth of his glorious heritage
to be distributed among the members of the church,
and the immeasurable scope of his power in us who believe."
Ephesians 1:17-19

Lord, we ask for wisdom today.
May we know you better each day.
May we learn of you and your vision for our lives.
Thank you for the hope you give us.
Thank you for power to continue the journey.
Enlighten us.
Change us.
We praise you, Lord.
How wonderful you are!

"You are my letter, known and read by all men,
written on your hearts.
Clearly you are a letter of Christ which I have delivered,
a letter written not with ink
but by the Spirit of the living God,
not on tablets of stone
but on tablets of flesh in the heart."
2 Corinthians 3:2-3

What do others see in your life?
Do they see the love of Christ?
Do they see the Spirit of God?
Change your heart.
Let the Lord write a letter to you.
Open your heart.
Pass the letter on to others.

(February 22, 2002 6:12 AM CST)

"The Spirit himself gives witness with our spirit
that we are children of God.
But if we are children, we are heirs as well;
heirs of God, heirs with Christ,
if only we suffer with him
so as to be glorified with him."
Romans 8:16-17

You are a child of God.
You are a son or daughter.
You are heir to abundant blessings.
Eternal life is yours.
Endure your suffering.
Offer up your life to Christ.
Give your best to him.
You have nothing to worry about.
He will take care of his children.

"Jesus picked up a towel and tied it around himself.
Then he poured water into a basin
and began to wash his disciples' feet
and dry them with the towel he had around him."

Hebrews 13:8

Our Lord always was and will always be.

and think it is a long time.
Take a look at the big picture.
Think outside of the box.
You want to spend forever with God.
Call on the Lord Jesus today.
Jesus, I want to be with you forever.

in a way worthy of his magnificent riches in Christ Jesus.
All glory to our God and Father for unending ages!

grace has far surpassed it,
so that, as sin reigned through death,
grace may reign by way of justice leading to eternal life,
through Jesus Christ our Lord."

"Jesus said to them,
'What were you discussing as you go your way?'"

Study the word.
Open the Bible and study it.
Discuss this.
Call on the Holy Spirit to point things out.
Praise God for his goodness.
Talk about the greatness of the Lord.
What are you talking about?

"Jesus was sleeping soundly,
so they made their way toward him and woke him:
'Lord, save us!
We are lost!'
He said to them:
'Where is your courage?
How little faith you have!'
Then he stood up and took the winds and the sea to task.
Complete calm ensued; the men were dumbfounded.
'What sort of man is this,' they said,
'that even the winds and the sea obey him?'"
Matthew 8:25-27

Jesus can control the weather.
He put the stars in their place.
They all obey him.
The universe is a place of order and beauty.
He is the great artist.
He is the author.
Will you let him control your life?
Do you have courage?
Will you obey his ways?
Calm will ensue.
Your life will be beautiful.

Did you see the
opening ceremony of the Olympics last night?
It was something to see all the nations
that were there to compete.
President Bush in the middle of all the USA athletes
was another unique moment.
Let the games begin.

the God of glory thunders,
the Lord, over vast waters.
The voice of the Lord is mighty;
the voice of the Lord is majestic."

Who is the greatest?

"God has not destined us for wrath
but for acquiring salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
He died for us, that all of us, whether awake or asleep,
together might live with him.
Therefore, comfort and upbuild one another,
as indeed you are doing."
1 Thessalonians 5:9-11

Our hope is in Christ.
When we die he will take us home to heaven.

and believe in our heart that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved.
Faith in the heart leads to justification,
confession on the lips to salvation."

Words are very powerful.
Thoughts are important.
Decisions have to be made.
Say with your mouth that you believe in Jesus.
Speak the words.
Hear the words.
Feel it in your heart.
Jesus will save you.

(February 6, 2002 6:12 AM CST)

"The fervent petition of a holy man is powerful indeed.
Elijah was only a man like us,
yet he prayed earnestly that it would not rain
and no rain fell on the land for 3 years and 6 months.
When he prayed again,
the sky burst forth with rain
and the land produced its crop."
James 5:16-18

Prayer is powerful.
Have confidence.
Our Father in heaven hears our prayers.
I pray for sufficient moisture for the farmers this year.
I pray for healing for many sick people that I know.
I ask God to give wisdom to our leaders.
I pray for the unemployed to find work.
I ask Jesus to bless all the people who read S2L each day.
Lord, hear our prayers.

Jesus said,
"If you can trust a man in little things,
you can also trust him in greater;
while anyone unjust in a slight matter
is also unjust in greater.
If you cannot be trusted with elusive wealth,
who will trust you with lasting?"
Luke 16:10-11

It is a test.
It is Life 101.
What are you doing with your talents?
How are you using your money?
God has blessed you with many gifts.
How are you using them?
This is preparation time for eternity.
Are you ready for eternal gifts?
Are you ready for the big time?
It is time to hit the books and study.

(February 4, 2002 6:15 AM CST)

"Little children,
let us love in deed and in truth
and not merely talk about it."

Words are fine.
Talk is great.
But actions are better.
Put love into action.
Speak the truth.
Live the truth with your life.

Yesterday I was reading about
Sriwittayapaknam School in Samut Prakan, Thailand .
I took the "A Day in the Life" tour.
They play the national anthem at 8 AM and 6 PM each day
on every radio and TV station.
It is very interesting.
They are 13 hours ahead of Omaha
(9:04 PM when I started writing this).
The web site is very well done.

"God so loved the world
that he gave his only Son,
that whoever believes in him may not die
but may have eternal life."
John 3:16

That is love.
That is true love.
You give your life so that another can live.
Jesus did this for you.
He gave his life so that you could live.
He is true love.
He gave his life for all those people in Thailand.
About 95% of Thailand are Buddhists.
May they one day find Jesus.
He is the way, the truth and the life.
Let us pray for them today.

(February 2, 2002 8:23 AM CST)

"Owe no debt to anyone except the debt
that binds us to love one another.
He who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law."
Romans 13:8

Where are your thoughts?
Do you ever think of others?
Do something for your neighbor.
It could be as simple as shoveling the snow for them.
The possibilities are endless.
Send a card to someone that has lost
a loved one this past year.
This will bind us together.
Do something.

(February 1, 2002 6:05 AM CST)

I would say we got 6 inches of snow.
The people with snow blowers are very happy.

Jesus said,
"When you stand to pray,
forgive anyone against whom you have a grievance
so that your heavenly Father may in turn
forgive you your faults."
Mark 11:25

Forgive those who have hurt you.
Forgive so that the Lord can forgive you.
Is it easy?
No, but the Lord says to do it.
Ask for his love and patience.
You can do it with God's help.
