Challenge To Christlike Faithfulness

      19860629 Challenge To Christlike Thankfulness - Rev. Tommy Jones

If the Son of God, who was present at the creation of all things according to the Bible, was outwardly #thankful for certain things during His time with us shouldn’t we be thankful as well.  Jesus Christ showed His gratitude for many things during His recorded ministry, but He specifically gave thanks to the Father in these four different examples Brother Tommy talks about which have implications for us all.

Thanksgiving Prayer


How long has it been since you have heard “Thank you” in #public?  Do you text thank you audibly?  Communication seems to be silent in our hurry up generation.  Many can place very personal comments on line, yet cannot say thank you aloud in front of others.  #Jesus gave us the perfect example of audible THANKS before five thousand hungry people.  JESUS took the lad’s five barley loaves and two small fishes, and when HE GAVE THANKS  his disciples distributed food to all. (as recorded in John 6)  I have read and heard this miracle since childhood, but it was always about feeding thousands from food in child’s basket.  Today, I am looking from a new perspective of thankfulness.  Our JESUS is humbling himself before others to first THANK HIS HEAVENLY FATHER for FOOD.   This Thanksgiving I want to THANK THE LORD FOR HIS GOODNESS AND MERCY and read Psalm 136 before we  participate in a wonderful family meal.  GIVE THANKS   How long has it been since our heavenly Father has heard “thank you” from YOU?

Prayer Partnership

      19820124 Prayer Partnership - Rev. Tommy Jones

What is the greatest tool the #Church has to counter the weapons the #Devil has to throw against it?  The #partnership of the people in #prayer.  What effect can influential people have on these partnerships?  How about so-called insignificant people?  Are there any unimportant partners in prayer?  So, people are important.  But, to what purpose?  What kind of power can we expect when we gather together partners in prayer?  What chains can we break?  I have seen a church rally around a young man nearly killed in an accident and the sudden rally of recovery that came upon him.  Perhaps you too have seen what can happen when the Church comes together in a prayer partnership.

#BREAD IS THE STAFF OF LIFE  is a saying which we all have heard.  As a child I thought hot bread topped with #butter was heavenly.  (I still do!)  With Thanksgiving just around the corner, my mind turns to food.  How about you?  The Bible speaks about hunger and how bread satisfies our emptiness.  John 6:32-35 “Jesus said, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.  For the BREAD OF GOD is He which comes down from heaven, and gives life unto the world.  I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE;  he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst.  v.47 Truly, truly, I say unto you, he that believes on Me has everlasting life.  v.48  I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE ”    

Lessons Learned On The Way Down

      19810719 Lessons Learned On The Way Down - Rev. Tommy Jones

#Motivational books tend to concentrate on success stories.  But a real #guide to this earthly existence, like the #Bible has to include both the ups and downs.  What can Jonah teach us about handling failure?  First, where is God?  Before we say that we would never run from God, think about times when we have behaved like God wasn’t there watching.  But isn’t it also helpful knowing that He will not leave us?  Second, how powerful is God?  Once again this can be scary when running from the Lord, but oh so comforting when we are lined up with God’s purpose.  But doing God’s will is supposed to be easy and profitable, right?  What is your personal Ninevah?  Third, what great lesson can we learn about God’s Love?  What is the difference between favored people and favorite people?
