"Jesus performed many other signs as well ---
signs not recorded here ---
in the presence of his disciples.
But these have been recorded to help you believe
that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God,
so that through this faith
you may have life in his name."
John 20:30-31

Are you alive?
Are you breathing?
Are you living?
Are you happy?
Have a full and joyful life with Jesus.
Believe it.

"It is as Scripture says:
'There is no just man, not even one;

"In view of this,
we must attend all the more
to what we have heard,
lest we drift away."

Jesus taught,
"At the judgment,
the citizens of Nineveh will rise
along with the present generation,
and they will condemn it.
For at the preaching of Jonah they reformed,
but you have a greater than Jonah here."
Luke 11:32

One day there will be a judgment.
Will you be with Jesus or not?
Give your heart to him.
Ask for forgiveness of your sins.
Live for the Lord.
Rise up.

I drove to work yesterday morning
and I had Pacific Street all to myself.

"After quite some time passed,
certain Jews conspired to kill Saul,
but their plot came to his attention."
Acts 9:23-24

Saul/Paul suffered much for his faith.
Many tried to kill him.
They stoned him once and left him for dead.
Stand up for your faith.
The Lord will give you strength
to continue your mission.
The Lord is with you.

(December 26, 2011 Mon 6:28 AM CST)

"In this regard
I too always strive
to keep my conscience clear
before God and man."

Strive for holiness.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Here is one of my favorite
Christmas songs by Avalon .

"This day in David's city
a savior has been born to you,
the Messiah and Lord.
Let this be a sign to you:
in a manger you will find an infant
wrapped in swaddling clothes."
Luke 2:11-12

He is there.
He is the Lord of all creation.
He has come to earth.
He has come to save you and me.
Jesus Christ has been born this day.

"Here I stand, knocking at the door.
If anyone hears me calling and opens the door,
I will enter his house
and have supper with him,
and he with me."

"They were holding the harps used in worshipping God,
and they sang the song of Moses,
the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb:
'Mighty and wonderful
are your works, Lord God Almighty!
Righteous and true are your ways,
O King of nations!
Who would dare refuse you honor,
or the glory due your name, O Lord?
Since you alone are holy,
all nations shall come
and worship in your presence.
Your mighty deeds are clearly seen.'"
Revelation 15:2-4

The Lord has done amazing things.
Give praise and honor to him.
His deeds are there for all to see.
Sing to the Lord and worship him.

Jesus told a story:
"But those sown on good soil
are the ones who listen to the word,
take it to heart, and yield at
thirty- and sixty- and a hundredfold."
Mark 4:20

Listen to the word of God.
Take it into your heart.
Let it grow in the Spirit.
It will yield much fruit.
There will be a great harvest.

(December 19, 2011 Mon 6:33 AM CST)

"Once again the high priest interrogated him:
'Are you the Messiah,
the Son of the Blessed One?'
Then Jesus answered:
'I am; and you will see the Son of Man
seated at the right hand of the Power
and coming with the clouds of heaven.'"
Mark 14:61-62

Jesus is the one.
There is no other.
He came to save us.
He came to save you.
Believe in him.
See his glory.

I was just listening to this song .
Very nice.
Christmas is very close.

Jesus told this story.
"'My son,' replied the father,
'you are with me always
and everything I have is yours.
But we had to celebrate and rejoice!
This brother of yours was dead,
and has come back to life.
He was lost and is found.'"
Luke 15:31-32

Rejoice and be glad.
Find new life.
Celebrate the reason for the season.
Have a joyous Christmas this year.

Someone I went to school with
passed away a few days ago.
Pray for him and all his family.
God bless them.

Paul said,
"Furthermore I persecuted this new way
to the point of death.
I arrested and imprisoned
both men and women."

There is a new way.
It is the way that leads to life everlasting.
Find Christ.
Find life.

"You must know that your body
is a temple of the Holy Spirit,
who is within ---
the Spirit you have received from God.
You are not your own.
You have been purchased, and at a price.
So glorify God in your body."
1 Corinthians 6:19-20

You are special.
You are unique.
There is no one like you.
God loves you very much.
Give glory to the Lord for his creation in you.

(December 15, 2011 Thu 6:33 AM CST)

"But when the kindness and love of God
our Savior appeared, he saved us;
not because of any righteous deeds we had done,
but because of his mercy.
He saved us through the baptism of new birth
and renewal by the Holy Spirit."
Titus 3:4-5

The Lord loves you.
He loves all of us.
His mercy is for all people.
Jesus, come and save me.
I need you in my life.
Forgive my sins.
Renew me by your Holy Spirit.

"On one occasion Jesus spoke thus:
'Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
to you I offer praise;
for what you have hidden from
the learned and the clever
you have revealed to the merest children.'"

It takes faith.

It is the time.

Yesterday I was watching a program on Machu Picchu .
It is located in Peru on a mountain top.
It was built by the Inca.

It is interesting to read the comments of people
on the Upper Room daily readings.
Have joy and peace this Christmas.

"Then Jesus went out to the mountain to pray,
spending the night in communion with God.
At daybreak he called his disciples and
selected twelve of them to be his apostles..."
Luke 6:12-13

Pray before you make big decisions.
The Lord will help you.
Seek his knowledge and counsel.
He is all that you need.

(December 10, 2011 Sat 10:27 AM CST)

"They found him altogether too much for them.
Jesus said to them,
'No prophet is without honor
except in his native place,
indeed in his own house.'
And he did not work many miracles there
because of their lack of faith."
Matthew 13:57-58

Jesus went home to Nazareth.
They knew who he was.
They lived in his town.
They would not believe in him.
Have faith in Jesus.
Trust in his saving words.
Invite him to your house.

(December 9, 2011 Fri 6:52 AM CST)

"During the festival, naturally,
the Jews were looking for Jesus, asking,
'Where is that troublemaker?'
Among the crowds there was much
guarded debate about him."
John 7:11-12

What do you say about Jesus?
Do you defend him?
He does stir things up.
Christmas is coming.
He is the reason that we celebrate.

(December 7, 2011 Wed 6:32 AM CST)

They prayed:
"'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.'
The place where they were gathered
shook as they prayed.
They were filled with the Holy Spirit
and continued to speak
God's word with confidence."
Acts 4:29-31

Have complete assurance.
God hears your prayers.
He will shake things up.
You will be moved.
Have confidence in God's holy word.

(December 6, 2011 Tue 6:31 AM CST)

"Herewith is my receipt, which says
that I have been fully paid and more.
I am well supplied because of what
I received from you through Epaphroditus,
a fragrant offering, a sacrifice
acceptable and pleasing to God.
My God in turn will supply your needs fully,
in a way worthy of his magnificent
riches in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:18-19

God owns all things.
He can even create things out of nothing.
Go to him for all your needs.
Thank him for all his many gifts.

(December 5, 2011 Mon 6:39 AM CST)

"Anyone who wants to live
a godly life in Christ Jesus
can expect to be persecuted."
2 Timothy 3:12

Stand up for the truth.
Proclaim the hope of Jesus.
Some people will not like it.
Be strong in your faith.

(December 4, 2011 Sun 8:24 AM CST)

The last few days I was watching
the movie on Mahatma Gandhi .
There is much that can be accomplished
with fasting and prayer.

"Then Jesus was led into the desert by the Spirit
to be tempted by the devil.
He fasted forty days and forty nights,
and afterward was hungry."
Matthew 4:1-2

Do you ever fast?
Do you ever think about it?
Seek the Lord.
Come closer to Jesus with fasting and prayer.

(December 3, 2011 Sat 9:26 AM CST)

"How deep are the riches and the wisdom
and the knowledge of God!
How inscrutable his judgments,
how unsearchable his ways!
For 'who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?
Who has given him anything
so as to deserve return?'
For from him and through him
and for him all things are.
To him be glory forever.
Romans 11:33-36

God is awesome.
He is amazing.
Give glory and praise to him.
Seek wisdom from him.

(December 2, 2011 Fri 7:01 AM CST)

I was talking to someone in Texas yesterday.
They asked me to pray for rain.
The lakes are drying up .
He said they fine people $1K
for watering their lawn in Frisco.
Lord, please send rain to Texas.

"God has willed to make known to them
the glory beyond price
which this mystery brings to the Gentiles ---
the mystery of Christ in you,
your hope of glory."
Colossians 1:27

It is no secret.
Open your heart to the truth.
Invite Christ into your heart.
He is your hope of glory.
