Worship the Lord

"To another Jesus said,
'Come after me.'"
Luke 9:59

It is that simple.
Listen to Jesus.
Follow him.
He will lead you to joy that never ends.

Yesterday I had my first day at a new temporary job.
There were 16 people in our class.
God bless all of them and our teacher.
They even took our fingerprints.
I've never had that done before.

"A lamp to my feet is your word,
a light to my path."
Psalms 119:105

Read the Bible daily.
It is to help you on your path.
It lights the way.
It keeps you safe from harm.
Jesus, help us to read your words each day.

I listened to a sermon on this the other day.
Click on the link above and then
the message "Become A People of God's Word."

And Amy sang a song about it.

(April 26, 2010 Mon 8:59 AM CDT)

Mary said,
"God who is mighty has done great things for me,
holy is his name;
His mercy is from age to age
on those who fear him."
Luke 1:49-50

The Lord is all-powerful.
He has done amazing things.
Ask the Lord for mercy.
He will bless you and your family.

(April 25, 2010 Sun 8:36 AM CDT)

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
on your own intelligence rely not;
In all your ways be mindful of him,
and he will make straight your paths."
(or another translation...)
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight."
Proverbs 3:5-6

It is a question of trust.
Do you trust Jesus?
Do you believe in him?
Listen to your heart.
Jesus is the answer.
He guides you on the straight path to heaven.

Here is an old video that morphs
from one person to the next.
Amazing how they did that back on November 14, 1991.

"What we are aiming at in this warning
is the love that springs from a pure heart,
a good conscience, and sincere faith."
1 Timothy 1:5

Come to life this spring.
Have a pure heart for the Lord.
May the Lord increase your faith.
Aim high toward heaven.
Love one another.

(April 23, 2010 Fri 8:57 AM CDT)

The father of two friends of mine has died.
I have not seen them in many years.
Pray for all the family.
God be with them today and comfort them.

"Grace and peace from God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ."
2 Corinthians 1:2

God bless you today.
May God give you grace and peace.
Receive these free gifts from your Father in heaven.
You are blessed.

(April 22, 2010 Thu 12:38 PM CDT)

I just watched the movie
This Is It
He was a great singer.
He kept saying, "God bless you."

It is a historic day.
Qwest is going to merge with another company.

"As Paul went on defending himself in this way,
Festus interrupted with a shout,
'Paul, you are mad!
Your great learning is driving you mad!'
'No, Your Excellency,' answered Paul,
'I am not mad.
The message I proclaim is the sober truth.'"
Acts 26:24-25

It is true.
The Bible is true.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.
Be sober.

(April 21, 2010 Wed 8:03 AM CDT)

TIA - that is all.
I saw TIA on Facebook this morning.
I think that is what it means.
I don't know many abbreviations.

"Jesus had to pass through Samaria,
and his journey brought him
to a Samaritan town named Shechem/Sychar
near the plot of land
which Jacob had given to his son Joseph.
This was the site of Jacob's well.
Jesus, tired from his journey,
sat down at the well."
John 4:4-6

Come to the well.
Find rest.
Talk to Jesus.
Be refreshed in Spirit.

(April 20, 2010 Tue 8:16 AM CDT)

Jesus taught,
"This is the meaning of the parable.
The seed is the word of God."
Luke 8:11

God is a farmer.
He is planting seeds.
He expects growth to follow.
Are you growing in grace, holiness and wisdom?

(April 19, 2010 Mon 7:59 AM CDT)

"You, however, are 'a chosen race,
a royal priesthood, a holy nation,
a people he claims for his own
to proclaim the glorious works'
of the One who called you
from darkness into his marvelous light.
Once you were no people,
but now you are God's people;
once there was no mercy for you,
but now you have found mercy."
1 Peter 2:9-10

You are chosen.
You are called to greatness.
Come to the marvelous light.
Find mercy and grace in Christ.

(April 18, 2010 Sun 8:03 AM CDT)

"We are bound to thank God for you always,
beloved brothers in the Lord,
because you are the first fruits of those
whom God has chosen for salvation,
in holiness of spirit and fidelity to truth.
He called you through our preaching
of the good news so that you might achieve
the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ."
2 Thessalonians 2:13-14

You are special.
You are chosen.
Achieve glory in Jesus.
Grow each day in holiness.

(April 17, 2010 Sat 9:51 AM CDT)

I talked to 3 people at my job interview yesterday.
They were interviewing other people also at the same time.
God bless all the people that work there and their families.
I found out that a friend of mine
from church lost her job on April 8.
Pray for all the unemployed people.

"You, then, are the body of Christ.
Every one of you is a member of it."
1 Corinthians 12:27

You are part of the family.
Know who you are.
You are a child of God.
Celebrate your membership.

(April 16, 2010 Fri 8:03 AM CDT)

Someone in our networking group
found a job at BCBS this week.
Thank the Lord.
God bless him and his family.

"But now, O Lord, look at the threats
they are leveling against us.
Grant to your servants,
even as they speak your words,
complete assurance by stretching forth your hand
in cures and signs and wonders to be worked
in the name of Jesus, your holy Servant."
Acts 4:29-30

Have courage.
Speak up for the Lord.
Have complete assurance.
See the wonders of God.
Praise the Lord.

(April 15, 2010 Thu 9:27 AM CDT)

Happy Tax day!

At our .NET meeting last night near 27 and Harney Streets in Omaha
the presenter mentioned 3 of these software disasters .
Are they true or not?
They could be urban myths.
1) Yorktown ship propulsion was disabled
with a divide by zero software error.
2) F16 when crossing the equator would flip upside-down.
3) F22 when crossing the International Date Line
had navigation problems.

"Jesus answered them:
'I solemnly declare it:
before Abraham came to be, I Am.'
At that they picked up rocks to throw at Jesus,
but he hid himself and slipped out
of the temple precincts."
John 8:58-59

What is true?
Jesus claims to be God.
They don't believe it.
The people want to stone him.
Be open to the truth.
Search for confirmation.
Faith is in the equation.
Ask for the Holy Spirit to lead you to the truth.
Jesus, teach us the truth.
Give us the correct navigation.

(April 14, 2010 Wed 8:02 AM CDT)

I bought another book yesterday.
Illustrated C# 2008 .

"After John's arrest, Jesus appeared in Galilee
proclaiming the good news of God:
'This is the time of fulfillment.
The reign of God is at hand!
Reform your lives and believe in the gospel!'"
Mark 1:14-15

Now is the time.
The reign of God is here.
It is good news.
Change your life.
Believe in Jesus.

(April 13, 2010 Tue 8:18 AM CDT)

I have a job interview on Friday.

Jesus taught,
"One day a farmer went out sowing.
Part of what he sowed landed on a footpath,
where birds came and ate it up.
Part of it fell on rocky ground,
where it had little soil.
It sprouted at once since the soil had no depth,
but when the sun rose and scorched it,
it began to wither for lack of roots.
Again, part of the seed fell among thorns,
which grew up and choked it.
Part of it, finally landed on good soil
and yielded grain a hundred- or sixty- or thirtyfold.
Let everyone heed what he hears!"
Matthew 13:4-9

Be planted.
Be rooted in the Lord.
Grow in holiness.
Produce hundredfold.

(April 12, 2010 Mon 9:58 AM CDT)

"Happy is he whose fault is taken away,
whose sin is covered."
Psalms 32:1

Jesus, forgive my sins.
I have made mistakes.
Help me to do better.
Show me the path to life.

(April 11, 2010 Sun 8:42 AM CDT)

"We have this confidence in God:
that he hears us whenever we ask
for anything according to his will."
1 John 5:14

Pray with confidence.
Ask your Father in heaven.
Follow the will of God.
He hears our prayers.

(April 9, 2010 Fri 7:40 AM CDT)

"May God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ
grant the brothers peace and love and faith.
Grace be with all who love
our Lord Jesus Christ with unfailing love."
Ephesians 6:23-24

Grace is a gift.
God gives you the grace you need for each day.
He loves you.
He cares all about you and your family.

(April 8, 2010 Thu 8:10 AM CDT)

There were a lot of people at the Job Fair
in Omaha yesterday near 60th and Grover Streets.
If you had claustrophobia, you were in trouble.
I talked to a few of the companies there.
Many said to apply at their web sites
for the open positions.
God bless all the people that were there.

"When they heard this, they were baptized
in the name of the Lord Jesus.
As Paul laid his hands on them,
the Holy Spirit came down on them
and they began to speak in tongues
and to utter prophecies."
Acts 19:5-6

Pray for others.
Lay your hands on them.
Ask for the Holy Spirit to come to them.
Speak in the name of the Lord.
Proclaim the truth with grace.

(April 7, 2010 Wed 8:48 AM CDT)

We are getting an April shower this morning in Omaha.

"Jesus said to them:
'I solemnly assure you,
it was not Moses who gave you bread from the heavens;
it is my Father who gives you the real heavenly bread.
God's bread comes down from heaven
and gives life to the world.'"
John 6:32-33

Bread is basic.
Jesus gives you what you need each day.
Jesus is the bread of life.
You don't have to be hungry ever again.

(April 6, 2010 Tue 8:55 AM CDT)

"Peter responded,
'Though all may have their faith in you shaken,
mine will never be shaken!'
Jesus said to him,
'I give you my word,
before the cock crows tonight
you will deny me three times.'
Peter replied,
'Even though I have to die with you,
I will never disown you.'
And all the disciples said the same."
Matthew 26:33-35

Actions speak louder than words.
Live a holy life.
Live a life of witness to the Lord.
Jesus, help me to live for you.
May I never deny that I know you.

(April 5, 2010 Mon 8:16 AM CDT)

"Day and night, without pause, they sing:
' Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,
He who was, and who is, and who is to come.'"
Revelation 4:8

Give praise to God.
He is holy.
He is almighty.
Sing songs of worship.
Praise the Lord.

(April 4, 2010 Sun 6:44 AM CDT)

I'm doing a full hard drive restore
on my main PC this morning.
I got a virus again on that PC somehow.
It is the same virus as on 2-16-2010.
I'm writing this from my Linux Ubuntu PC.
Good thing I have 4 PCs and a laptop as backups.

Happy Easter to you and your family!
I got up early today as you can see.
Easter is a very special day for me.
I don't want to miss a minute of it.

And of course my favorite Easter song...
Jesus Christ Is Risen Today

"Early in the morning
on the first day of the week,
while it was still dark,
Mary Magdalene came to the tomb.
She saw that the stone had been moved away,
so she ran off to Simon Peter and
the other disciple (the one Jesus loved)
and told them, 'The Lord has been taken from the tomb!
We don't know where they have put him!'
At that, Peter and the other disciple started out
on their way toward the tomb.
They were running side by side,
put then the other disciple outran Peter
and reached the tomb first.
He did not enter but bent down to peer in,
and saw the wrappings lying on the ground.
Presently, Simon Peter came along behind him
and entered the tomb.
He observed the wrappings on the ground
and saw the cloth which had covered the head
not lying with the wrappings,
but rolled up in a place by itself.
Then the disciple who had arrived first
at the tomb went in.
He saw and believed."
John 20:1-8

Three people were at the tomb.
Three different reactions.
John (the other disciple) saw and believed.
May the Lord increase your faith today
to see and believe.
May the Lord restore your faith.
(The backup just finished on my main PC.
It only took 35 minutes to restore it.)

(April 3, 2010 Sat 10:26 AM CDT)

I made some brownies yesterday and
a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.
I'm missing the chopped walnuts.
I'll have to go buy some today.
I've never made a carrot cake before.

"Then, after they had fasted and prayed,
they imposed hands on them
and sent them off."
Acts 13:3

It is rare to hear about fasting any more.
It is important in our spiritual lives.
In a fast you give up food for some amount of time.
You take that time to read the Bible and pray.
Jesus, help us to see the value of fasting.
You want to bring us closer to you.
We have so much to learn.
Teach us, Lord.

(April 2, 2010 Fri 8:48 AM CDT)

It is Good Friday.
We remember how much God loves us.

"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

Take time to think about the Lord today
and all that he has done for you.
Jesus, thank you.
Thank you for your love.
Thank you for your sacrifice.

(April 1, 2010 Thu 9:10 AM CDT)

They are splitting protons apart.
How much is 7 trillion electron volts?
Sounds like a lot to me.

"God, who raised up the Lord,
will raise us also by his power.
Do you not see
that your bodies are members of Christ?"
1 Corinthians 6:14-15

The Lord is all powerful.
He has resurrection power.
Tap into this power.
He will raise you up.
