Scripture Of The Day

But thou, O LORD, [art] a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
Psalms 3:3

Read The Bible In a Year

Isaiah 3-4 ; Galatians 6

Thoughts For The Day

Don't let go of your dreams. If you have determination and belief in your dreams, you will succeed in spite of your desire to let go.

If you doubt you can accomplish something, then you can't accomplish it. You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.

The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination. The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination.


Motivation For The Day

Don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, you can achieve.

On This Day

1540 - Jesuits receive charter-In Rome, the Society of Jesus--a Roman Catholic missionary organization--receives its formal charter from Pope Paul III. Ignatius De Loyola, a Spanish soldier turned priest, founded the Society in 1534. Important in the Counter Reformation in the 16th century, Jesuit missionaries began fanning out from Europe in the 17th century. The highly educated Black Robes, as they were known in native America, often preceded European nations in their infiltration of foreign lands and societies. The life of a Jesuit missionary was one of immense risk, though, and foreign authorities hostile to their task of conversion persecuted thousands of Jesuit priests. In other nations, such as India and China, the Jesuits were revered as men of wisdom and science.
1825 - The world's first public passenger rail service begins - between Stockton and Darlington in the north of England.
1939 - Within three weeks of the start of World War II, the Polish capital Warsaw urrenders to overwhelming German forces.
1943 - American singer Bing Crosby records the Christmas hit 'Jingle Bells'.
1967 - British liner 'Queen Mary' docks at Southampton at the end of her last trans-Atlantic voyage.
1968 - The controversial rock musical 'Hair' - including a scene cast in the nude - opens at the Shaftesbury Theatre in London, the day after the lifting of strict censorship in the theatre.
1995 - Anger within the British Government by a European Court of Human Rights ruling which condemns the killing, by the British SAS, of three IRA terrorists in Gibraltar in 1988.

Personal Story Of The Day


The disciple Peter blew it. He sinned directly, repeatedly, even after a clear warning from Jesus Himself. Three times during the hardest night of his Lords life, he denied even knowing Him. When the rooster crowed, realizing what hed done, Peter went outside and wept bitterly (Luke 22:5462). How could he be forgiven for this?! Surely it was too late.

Nevertheless, it wasnt. With God, it never is. After His Resurrection, Jesus confirmed His love for Peter... instructed him to tend my sheep, and told him hed die a martyrs death (John 21:1519).

The message of redemption, which Jesus commissioned Peter to proclaim, is at its core a message of forgiveness (cf. Eph. 1:7; Acts 13:38). We see this very clearly in Lukes account of the Great Commission. Before instructing Peter to take the redemptive gospel into the world, Jesus taught Peter forgiveness in his own life. In forgiving Peter, He gave him a lesson hed never forget. Keep in mind that Peter had been frequently rebuked by Jesus for other acts of sin that he had committed. The period of time that Jesus was on the earth was not between the Old and New Testament. He was a spirit filled man living under the law. His thoughts and deeds, his words and actions were a clear message of the coming Christian lifestyle. Peter couldn't live up to the gospel until he received the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

After his resurrection, Jesus did several things for His disciples. He calmed their fears. He proved His physical reality by eating some fish and inviting them to touch His wounds. Most importantly, Jesus taught them that central to the Scriptures is an understanding of how His death and resurrection fulfilled generations of prophecy. The Old and New Testaments tell one continuous story: Christ suffered, died, and rose again (Luke 24:46). This theme is woven through the whole Bible.

This earthshaking news must be shared! Repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in His name to all nations (Luke 24:47). By whom? The disciples, eyewitnesses to the events of Jesus life, would testify to the reality of the grace of God. They wouldnt go in their own strength but empowered by the promised Holy Spirit.

So then, the Old Testament sacrifices and the Cross carry a unified message... forgiveness. God offers it freely to us, but at great cost to Himself. Thats the gospel. Peter learned it, lived it, and proclaimed it, and so must we. However, if we fail to walk in the spirit we are prone to the same weakness and failure that Peter exercised. Failing to forgive others is equally as sinful as the actions of the sinner. Jesus forgives... so do we.

There may be many more Peter's out there waiting to be transformed by the cleansing power of the Holy Ghost.


Jokes Of The Day

A Minister was walking down the street when he came upon a group of about a dozen boys, all of them between 10 and 12 years of age.

The group had surrounded a dog. Concerned lest the boys were hurting the dog, he went over and asked "What are you doing with that dog?"

One of the boys replied, "This dog is just an old neighborhood stray. We all want him, but only one of us can take him home. So we've decided that whichever one of us can tell the biggest lie will get to keep the dog."

Of course, the reverend was taken aback. "You boys shouldn't be having a contest telling lies!" he exclaimed. He then launched into a ten minute sermon against lying, beginning, "Don't you boys know it's a sin to lie," and ending with, "Why, when I was your age, I never told a lie."

There was dead silence for about a minute. Just as the reverend was beginning to think he'd gotten through to them, the smallest boy gave a deep sigh and said, "All right, give him the dog."

Here is the LOST CHAPTER IN GENESIS....
Adam was walking around the garden of Eden feeling very lonely, so God asked him,
"What is wrong with you?"
Adam said he didn't have anyone to talk to.
God said that He was going to make Adam a companion and that it would be a woman.

He said,
"This person will gather food for you, cook for you, and when you discover clothing she'll wash it for you. She will always agree with every decision you make. She will bear your children and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them. She will not nag you and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you've had a disagreement. She will never have a headache and will freely give you love and passion whenever you need it.

Adam asked God, "What will a woman like this cost?"
God replied, "An arm and a leg."
Then Adam asked, "What can I get for a rib?"
The rest is history..

Wisdom from Grandpa......

Whether a man winds up with a nest egg, or a goose egg, depends a lot on the kind of chick he marries.

Trouble in marriage often starts when a man gets so busy earnin' his salt that he forgets his sugar.

Too many couples marry for better, or for worse, but not for good.

When a man marries a woman, they become one; but the trouble starts when they try to decide which one.

If a man has enough horse sense to treat his wife like a thoroughbred, she will never turn into an old nag.

On anniversaries, the wise husband always forgets the past - but never the present.

A foolish husband says to his wife, "Honey, you stick to the washin', ironin', cookin' and scrubbin'. No wife of mine is gonna "work"."

Many girls like to marry a military man - he can cook, sew, and make beds and is in good health, and he's already used to taking orders.

Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?

You know you are getting old, when everything either dries up or leaks.

Old age is when former classmates are so gray and wrinkled and bald, they don't recognize you.

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day




 Sometimes we tend to be too nice. When people are doing wrong, we are afraid to confront their behavior, and we choose just to be nice. When a friend is slipping into a worldly lifestyle or a relative is drinking too much, we ignore the situations and do not confront them. When an unsaved workmate is trusting in good works for eternal life, we remain silent about the power of the Holy Ghost. But believers should not compromise obedience to God's Word just to be nice.

A US Supreme Court Justice said that "in the effort to be civil in conduct, many who know better actually dilute [their] firmly held views to avoid appearing judgmental. They curb their tongues, not only in form but also in substance. . . . This is not civility, it is cowardice. Or well-intentioned self-deception at best."

In Matthew 9, Jesus wasn't concerned about being nice. He looked the Jewish teachers of the law in the eye and said, "Why do you think evil in your hearts?" (v.4). Nor was He worried about being civil when He called the Pharisees "whitewashed tombs . . . full of dead men's bones" (23:27). He courageously confronted them and exposed their sin.

Sometimes being nice isn't nice.




The Gifts of Healing

To another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:9

In this passage the word gifts is written in plural while all the other gifts of the Spirit are expressed in singular. It must be that this gift is significantly different. But then there are many different illnesses, too. When Jesus walked on earth, He healed every sickness and every disease (Matthew 9:35). He always had time for those who were sick. Never was a sick person pushed aside. Never did a sick person hear that Jesus would not or could not heal him. The Spirit of the Lord worked through Him without limitation. Jesus had the Spirit beyond measure.

We have received a portion of God's Spirit, and through the gifts of healing, this same Spirit can move in a most wonderful way. Therefore, we are always to pray for sick people. The Bible never once says that we should not pray for the sick. On the contrary, it says we should pray for the sick or, to use Jesus' words, Heal the sick (Matthew 10:8). We cannot dominate the gifts of the Spirit, but we can be open and eager to have them operating in our lives. We should always pray for the sick whether we see a manifestation of the Sprit or not. The gifts will function if we stretch our faith and are expectant.

The gifts of healing can vary. Sometimes certain diseases are immediately healed. Sometimes it seems like some believers are better able to deal with certain diseases. It is impossible to fully explain why this is so. The wind blows where it wills, and so it is with all who are born of the Spirit. What is important is that the Spirit wants to heal people. We must be sensitive to the Spirit so we can follow Him and He can use us.
