"And my prayer is that your sharing
of the faith with others
may enable you to know all the good
which is ours in Christ."
Philemon 1:6

The Lord is wonderful.
He is kind and forgiving.
He is awesome.
Tell someone.

"For if the word spoken
through angels stood unchanged,
and all transgression and disobedience
received its due punishment,
how shall we escape if we ignore
a salvation as great as ours?"
Hebrews 2:2-3

God has blessed us.
We have been given many gifts.
We have hope.
Let us grow in our faith each day.

"Even while Jesus was still speaking,
Judas, one of the Twelve,
made his appearance accompanied
by a crowd with swords and clubs;
these people had been sent
by the chief priests, the scribes,
and the elders."
Mark 14:43

Are you part of the crowd?
Are you in a group?
Do you agree with their actions?
Better check it out.
They could be leading you to go against Jesus.
Stop and consider what is right.

"When Jesus came out wearing
the crown of thorns
and the purple cloak,
Pilate said to them,
'Look at the man!'"
John 19:5

Look at Jesus.
He suffered very much for us.
He took the weight of all our sins.
Look to Jesus.
He is the way that leads to life.
See him in all his glory.
Study him.
Worship him.

"When the disturbance was over,
Paul brought his disciples together
to encourage them."

Don't stop believing.

"For if you confess with your lips
that Jesus is Lord,
and believe in your heart
that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved."
Romans 10:9

Believe it.
Jesus is the one.
There is no other.
He is the Lord.

"As they were leaving,
the people invited them
to speak on this subject again
on the following sabbath.
When the congregation finally broke up,
many Jews and devout Jewish converts
followed Paul and Baranbas,
who spoke to them and urged them
to hold fast to the grace of God."
Acts 13:42-43

Pray for preachers.
Pray for them to proclaim the good news.
May they be an inspiration to many.
Pray for the listeners to receive
what God has to say to them.

I am writing this offline
since my connection to the ISP is down at my house.

Everything written before our time
was written for our instruction,
that we might derive hope
from the lessons of patience
and the words of encouragement in the Scriptures.
Romans 15:4

It takes patience.
I'm waiting to connect to the Internet.
It is not cooperating.
It is very hard to do things without the network.
I will have to read my hard copy of the Bible.
We need to read the Bible online
or offline with a hard copy.
It is our instruction book.

"May he strengthen you inwardly
through the working of his Spirit.
May Christ dwell in your hearts through faith,
and may charity be the root and
foundation of your life.
Thus you will be able to grasp fully,
with all the holy ones,
the breath and length and height
and depth of Christ's love,
and experience this love
which surpasses all knowledge,
so that you may attain
to the fullness of God himself."
Ephesians 3:16-19

God's love is an amazing thing.
We can't understand such love.
We are his creation.
We are his children.
You are safe in his arms.

(July 12, 2013 Fri 7:08 AM CDT)

"But you, beloved, grow strong in your holy faith
through prayer in the Holy Spirit.
Persevere in God's love,
and welcome the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ
which leads to life eternal."
Jude 1:20-21

Pray to the Holy Spirit.
Worship the Spirit.
Give praise to the Spirit.
Persevere in doing God's will.
Find eternal life.

"I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the First and the Last,
the Beginning and the End!"
Revelation 22:13

God has always existed.
He will be here for eternity.
He has created us.
He wants us to be with him forever.

I'm writing this on my old PC
that is running Windows 8.1 Preview .
I installed it Saturday.
It took about 4 hours to load.
It is alright.
I had to uninstall the anti-virus checker (Trend Micro),
but other than that it works fine.

I'm watering the yard this morning
for the first time this year.
We could use some rain, but we are 3 inches
ahead of normal at the moment.
The corn is growing fine from what I hear.

You can watch the wedding of Becky & Mike from Saturday.
God bless them and their marriage
and their families.

"The Lord God said:
'It is not good for the man to be alone.
I will make a suitable partner for him.'"
Genesis 2:18

God created man and woman.
He created marriage.
It is one man and one woman.
The world proclaims marriage that is different from this.
God says it is for one man and one woman.
It is that simple.

Jesus taught,
"Be compassionate, as your Father is compassionate.
Do not judge, and you will not be judged.
Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned.
Pardon, and you shall be pardoned."
Luke 6:36-37

Forgive, forgive, forgive.
The Lord will forgive your sins,
if you forgive what others have done to you.
Jesus, teach me how to forgive.

(July 5, 2013 Fri 6:48 AM CDT)

"We are not among those
who draw back and perish,
but among those
who have faith and live."
Hebrews 10:39

Life in Christ.
Life is Christ.
Be strong in your faith.
Thrive on goodness.

Happy 4th of July.
We thank God for our freedom.

"My brothers (and sisters),
remember that you have been called
to live in freedom ---
but not a freedom
that gives free rein to the flesh.
Out of love,
place yourselves at one another's service."
Galatians 5:13

With freedom comes a responsibility.
Help those in need.
Celebrate your freedom in Christ.
Be of service.

(July 1, 2013 Mon 6:57 AM CDT)

"Jesus replied:
'If only you recognized God's gift,
and who it is that is asking you for a drink,
you would have asked him instead,
and he would have given you living water.'"
John 4:10

Do you recognize Jesus?
Do you see him?
He wants to give you a wonderful gift.
All you have to do is ask.
Jesus, give me living water.
