Our Wonderful Salvation

      19850609pm Our Wonderful Salvation - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

In times of #trials and #troubles Peter is reminding the believers of how wonderful their great #Salvation is.  First, how do we receive this wonderful salvation?  Second, how does our salvation contrast with the background of despair that exists among the unbelievers?  And how important is the resurrection of Jesus Christ to this hope that we have?  What is this inheritance that Peter talks about?  When do we receive it?

Grace So Amazing

The LIVING GOD #SPIRIT

#Biographies have captured my attention from a very early age.  Even today, as I observe the actions of others it is very revealing of ones character.  We watch actors perform on large and small screens, but acts which have been written by the screen writers.  As a child, I lived in Amarillo, Texas and on Saturdays we would go downtown to shop where I noticed people parked on the street just sitting in their car watching all the people pass by.  (This was before TV)  Naturally curious, I asked my mother, Why are they just sitting there?  She replied, “Honey, they just like to be entertained by the crowd ”   Sound familiar?  Paul wrote in 11 Corinthians 3 about epistles, letters written to others – “You are a letter written in our hearts, known and read of all men, you are shown as a letter of Christ cared for by us, written not with ink, but with the SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD, not on tablets of stone but on fleshly tablets of the heart.”  You may think no one notices you or you can hide by role playing; however, the veil has been taken away by Jesus Christ. “Now the LORD IS THAT SPIRIT:  and where the SPIRIT OF THE LORD is there is LIBERTY.  But we all, with open face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the SPIRIT OF THE LORD.” 17-19  What are you tweeting?  What’s on your tablet?  

We Can Satisfy Our Savior

Maybe you have a #parent or a #mentor whose approval you are always seeking.  Maybe you have tried everything you know how to do and it just doesn’t seem to be good enough.  Some people think a relationship with God has to be the same way, never quite measuring up to expectations.  But does it really have to be that way?  First, ask what grieves God?  Second, who does He task with carrying out His work?  Third what is our response to these realizations?

The Gift of Rest

The LIVING GOD #LORD

Are you thinking that you are the #lord of your #life?  I see a #society that feels they are the #masters of their own #souls; thereby telling others who and what they have chosen to become, because they are their own lord.  Ps.37:5 gives us good advice “Commit your way to the LORD.” Webster defines LORD as one who has power, authority, headship, and is master, ruler, keeper, guard, the Supreme Being; JEHOVAH,  The Saviour, JESUS CHRIST.  “Know today, and take it to your heart, that the LORD, HE IS GOD IN HEAVEN ABOVE AND ON THE EARTH BELOW; THERE IS NO OTHER.” Deut. 4:39  There are over 300 texts in the Bible ascribed to GOD AS LORD.  Have you acknowledged The LORD as LORD, or have you become your own lord?  Ps. 37 says, Do not fret because of evildoers –Trust in the LORD, –Wait on the LORD, –Rest in the LORD..  “Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods?  ..I will cause them to know my hand and my might; and they shall know that MY NAME IS  THE LORD.”  Jer.16:20,21  I pray you are making Him LORD over your life now!

Since I didn’t give you a themed message for #Mother’sDay and since we are about to have #Father’sDay, here is a message for both.  What is more important to Christianity and even the Nation than the Church?  Can a home stand without a good foundation?  How does the World define Love?  What is wrong with basing love on looks and feelings?  What admonitions does the Bible give for men and women in the Family?  What is wrong with tweaking the God-given roles in the Family?  What is the biggest threat to the Family today?  What is the reward for getting it right?
