Scripture Of The Day

John 3:5

Read The Bible In a Year

Ezekiel 16-17 ; James 3

Thoughts For The Day

Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love and something to hope for.

The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phrase: If you pursue happiness you'll never find it.

For every 60 seconds of anger, you lose one minute of happiness.


Motivation For The Day

Get excited and enthusiastic about you own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire - you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away.

Personal Story Of The Day



   For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
     John 5:22


     Reference scriptures from Malachi 3:1-18



People consider with great care whom they choose as a messenger for important information. If the President wants to communicate an important policy, he will select a trusted member of his staff. Companies like Australia Post spend millions of dollars each year to convince customers that they can be trusted to deliver messages.

Two messengers are mentioned in verse 1 of todays passage. The first messenger, who is to prepare the way, is John the Baptist (cf. Mark 1:2). The second is the messenger of the covenant, the Lord Jesus Christ. This prophecy doesnt refer to Jesus first coming, but rather to the Second Coming. At that time Jesus will return as a Judge, as One who will establish His kingdom and put down rebellion against God on the earth.

Jesus is compared to a refiners fire (v. 2). When metals such as silver and gold are originally mined, they are filled with impurities. To remove these, the ore is crushed and washed with pressurized water, and the dirt and some of the waste materials are washed away. Then the ore is heated and refined in a blast furnace at a high temperature. As the gold or silver melts, the impurities rise to the top and are skimmed off, leaving behind the pure metal.

God is quite clear about what sorts of actions will be judged (v. 5). At first glance we may feel tempted to think that were exempt from the rebuke; after all, we wouldnt think of practicing sorcery. But it becomes clear that we should examine ourselves more carefully... lying, injustice, and a lack of mercy also displease God.

In verse 6, God says, For I am the lord, I change not. God is faithful to His promises. This is instructive for us as believers. God welcomes us into His fellowship, but we need to confess our sins and allow the holy spirit to cleanse us on a daily basis.

Someday we will all stand before Christ and will give an account for our lives. Are there areas of your life that need to experience the Refiners fire?

The Holy Spirit will convict you of the areas in your life that need to be purified when you ask Him. Prayerfully ask for His leading, and thank Him for the refining process that keeps you in fellowship with God. Our God does not abandon us when we sin, but makes a way to restore us (1 John 1:9).


Jokes Of The Day

A group of U.S. soldiers arriving in Macedonia found themselves taking a surprise refresher course on first aid. Following an involved lesson on making splints, dressing wounds and applying tourniquets to stop bleeding, the instructor decided to determine how well the class had grasped the information given.

"Jones," he said, pointing to one of the solders, "say your platoon leader sustains a head injury during a cross-country march. What do you do about it?"

"That's easy, Sir," said Jones. "I wrap a tourniquet around his neck and tighten it until the bleeding stops."

************************************

The men of Charlie Company had been in the field for two weeks when the Sarge announces, "I've got good news and bad news. First the good news. Today we're going to change our underwear."

The troops start cheering wildly.

"Now the bad news," continues the Sarge. "Smith, you change with Jones. Andrews, you change with Murphy..."

************************************

There was a knock at the door. It was a small boy, about six years old. Something of his had found its way into my garage, he said, and he wanted it back.

Upon opening the garage door, I noticed two additions: a baseball and a broken window sporting a baseball-sized hole. "How do you suppose this ball got in here?" I asked the boy.

Taking one look at the ball, one look at the window, and one look at me, the boy exclaimed, "Wow! I must have thrown it right through that hole!"

Riddle Of The Day

What has a head, a tail, is brown, and has no legs?

Answer to Yesterdays Riddle
There was a guy stuck in a metal room with a metal door.The door was locked and there were no windows. The following items were inside the room:a piano, table,a saw,and a bat, How did the man get out? (3 ways)
First, he played the piano until he found the right key. Second, he sawed the table in half then held the two pieces together. Two halves make a whole.(hole) Third, he swung the bat three times. Three strikes, he's out.

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day


    The start of every summer here in Queensland sees the rekindling of debate over daylight savings. One side believes in all the advantages of gaining an extra hour of daylight at the end of the day; while the other side sees no need for change. The matter was settled at a referendum some years ago, but every year the push is on for change. Whatever the outcome, it will remain a heated debate for many.

Whoever said "a call for a decision is a cause for division" was right. Choice involves change, and change makes some people uncomfortable.

Jesus said that a decision to follow Him would mean changes in relationships. "From now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three. Father will be divided against son . . . , mother against daughter" (Luke 12:52-53).

Your friends or family may misunderstand you after you start living a Christian life. Some may accuse you of thinking you're too good for them. Others may shun you.

In that way, Jesus is a divider of families, friends, and co-workers. It hurts to be ridiculed or rejected by those close to you, but Jesus said it would happen.

Yes, Christ is a divider of peoplebut you are united with Him and those who love him, and He will never leave you.

New Heavens and a New Earth

And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
&And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
Revelation 20:11-12; 21:1

The Bible does not end with judgment. It ends with a description of a new heaven and a new earth. The final judgment is only a prelude to the great adventure...  when those reconciled, restored and glorified (God's people), truly step into their destiny. That is when things really begin. In the light of eternity, our life on earth is extremely short. Yet it is so important. This is where we make our choices. This is where we learn to obey. This is where we develop. This is where we are being prepared.

In heaven we cannot undo our choices. In hell people will forever regret their rebellion, selfishness and flight from God. But then it will be too late. This life is only the starting block for eternity's adventure, which never will end. Heaven is not the end; it is the beginning. It is an eternal beginning. It is an eternal morning. It is an eternal rise to glory. It is an eternal process of growth in loving and getting to know God, without limitation.

The Bible says very little about heaven. It is a priceless gift that awaits those who anticipate His return. It is abundantly more than we could ever ask for or imagine. Heaven blasts away every preconceived notion. And we are on our way there. It is important that we are judged. Not condemned, but examined so that everything perishable, all the dry branches, everything that ensnares us and everything that we cannot take with us is removed from our lives. Nothing may hinder us. Then we receive our entry For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:11).
