Acts 16:28-34

July 15, 2016

Acts 16:28-34 – “But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.” Then the keeper of the prison called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the LORD Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Then they spoke the word of the LORD to him and to all who were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized. Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.”

RJ: “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the LORD Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.” Thank you LORD for this promise, a promise made to each and every person in our world today! Have you asked the jailor’s question? Have you received Jesus Christ as your Savior? If not, today is the day! Praying for you today!

September is Suicide Awareness Month

September 7, 2013

September 2013

 

Next week is suicide awareness week.  It causes me to reflect why we started THIRST Living Waters Fund.  Our mission is to PREVENT suicide and our message is simple:

Trust Him In Relief of Suicidal Thoughts.  What does this mean?  Who is Him?

 

Our lives are difficult, we encounter difficult times, difficult situations, we are disappointed by relationships, we are hurt by people, this list could go on and on.  You/we are correct, you cannot walk life’s journey alone.  There is someone who wants to walk with you daily, not necessarily helping you avoid the difficult times, but wanting to help you through the difficult times and situations.  Who is this person?  It is the LORD Jesus Christ, your father, your friend, your provider, your comforter.  He wants to be by your side in all things.  He wants to walk life’s journey with you!

 

What needs to happen?  You need to ask Jesus Christ into your life to be your LORD and Savior.  You need to submit your life to Him.  And you need to confess your sinful nature and ask for His forgiveness.  That is the beginning of your relationship with Jesus.  Next you need to read the Bible (When you read your Bible and study the word You draw closer in relationship with him), you need to establish Christian friends and chose a church that obviously loves the LORD and teaches the truth.

 

There you are, sound easy?  Yes and no, but commit to beginning the journey today, you will not be disappointed.  If we can help, please let us know on the prayer line and ask that we contact you.

 

May the LORD Richly Bless You and Protect You!

What are we Celebrating this Christmas?

December 21, 2012

John 3:16-17 – “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him”.  Luke 1:30-32 – “But the angel said to her, do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.  You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus.  He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.”  Luke 2:11 – “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.”

Thanksgiving 2012

November 26, 2012

Thirst Thanksgiving Blog

 

November 22, 2012

On this Thanksgiving Day 2012, we have much to be thankful for.  Unfortunately we get caught up in the negatives in our lives and fail to look at our many blessings.  You are blessed; listen to what the Bible says to you:

 

God created you in His Image:

 

  • Gen 1:27 – God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. NIV

 

  • To be created in the image of God means that we humans have the ability and the privilege of knowing, serving, and loving God, and that we are most fully human when fulfilling our spiritual potential. Every human life is precious to God. (from Nelson’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary, Copyright (c)1986, Thomas Nelson Publishers)

 

God knew you before you were born; you were formed by Him in your Mother’s womb:

 

  • Ps 139:13-14 – for you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. NIV

 

And, He loves you more than you can imagine:

 

  • Ps 86:15 – But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. NIV

 

  • Ps 100:5 – For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations. NIV

 

  • Ps 103:11-12 – For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. NIV

 

  • John 13:34-35 – “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”  NIV

 

  • 1 John 4:8-12 – Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. NIV

 

I pray you have a Blessed Thanksgiving!  Please take time to list those things you are most thankful for:  the Lord, your family, your friends, your health, your home…  I’m sure your list will be long!

 

May the Lord Richly Bless your walk with Him!

The Gnarly Tree

September 13, 2012

Does this tree exemplify your life?  From birth things have been rocky and your life full of struggles?  Your life has taken different turns, sometimes left then right?  Life is not what you want it to be?  You are sometimes afraid, empty hurting or lonely.  Do you often thirst for more?  Jesus promises you much more…  In John 4:13-14, “Jesus answered and said to her, everyone who drinks of this water shall thirst again; but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”  Jesus doesn’t promise to make your life easy; life can still be much like this tree, difficult and gnarly, yet through those difficult times we still have hope.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Rom 15:13 NIV

“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.  Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.” Rom 5:1-5 NIV

We have a heavenly Father who loves us more than we can imagine.  We have forgiveness through His son Jesus Christ.  When we accept Jesus into our lives He is our friend and walks with us at all times.  Like the tree, we are full of life, beautiful, loved and reaching upward to our hope and joy in Jesus.
