Thoughts For The Day

Every day you are alive is a special occasion. Every minute, every breath, is a gift from God.

Men take only their needs into consideration, never their abilities.

Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.

Personal Story Of The Day

A Change For The Better

A student from a Christian high school, knew a teacher whose wife had died. Later he married the widow of his best friend. One day the student asked him,Will your first wife know about your second marriage when you see her in heaven, and if so, how do you think she'll react? The teacher smiled and said, Of course she will, and because she will be perfect she will not be jealous. Even though we will not live as marriage partners, we will know each other. We will all be the best of friends forever. However, the teacher missed the real answer.
In Mark 12, we read about some enemies of Jesus who invented a story about a woman whose husband died and left no son. Under Jewish law, the brother of the deceased had to marry the widow for the purpose of having a son (Deuteronomy 25:5). According to their story, this happened with seven brothers. Jesus' detractors asked, When they rise, whose wife will she be? He said they neither understood the Scriptures nor God's power to raise the dead to a glorious new existence without marriage. 
Our new bodies are without gender and the attributes of human psychology or physics. They will be purely spiritual, lack nothing and need nothing... they will dwell in the perfect love of Christ. We will love perfectly being freed from all human pressures and confines. Our new status will be more fulfilling than any marriage or friendship ever possible on earth.


Jokes Of The Day

An explosion killed a navy boilerman and he wound up in hell. Being used to stroking fires and extremely hot temperatures, he found hell actually quite comfortable. When satan went to check out the new arrival, he found him sitting in his room smiling. "You like this?", satan asked.

"Yes, sir", said the sailor, "this feels like a spring day to me."

Not wanting the new guy to be too comfortable, satan turned up the heat a lot. When he went back to see how his new arrival was doing, the sailor was still happy. He hadn't even broken a sweat.

"I like this kind of weather", he told satan. Satan decided to try something different. Rather than turn up the heat, he turned it off. He made the sailor's room form icicles. When he checked on the guy, the room was icy and he was shivering, but he had a grin from ear to ear.

"Why are you so happy?", satan demanded. "It's freezing in here!" "I'm from Queensland," said the sailor. "and this must mean the Broncos have won the NRL final!"

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

Two doctors and an medical insurance officer died and lined up at the pearly gates for admission to heaven. St. Peter asked them to identify themselves. One doctor stepped forward and said: "I was a pediatric spine surgeon and helped kids overcome their deformities."

St. Peter said, "You can enter."

The second doctor said "I was a psychiatrist. I helped people rehabilitate themselves."

St. Peter also invited him in.

The third applicant stepped forward and said, "I was a medical insurance officer and insured people got the health care they were entitled to."

St. Peter said, "You can come in too." But as the medical insurance officer walked by, St. Peter added, "You can stay three days. After that, you can go to hell."

Riddle Of The Day

It starts out with four, if you cut one off 3 fall down and 5 remain. What is it ?

Answer to Yesterday's Riddle
You stand at a fork in the road. Next to each of the two forks, there stands a guard. You know the following things: 1. One path leads to Paradise, the other to Death. From where you stand, you cannot distinguish between the two paths. Worse, once you start down a path, you cannot turn back. 2. One of the two guards always tells the truth. The other guard always lies. Unfortunately, it is impossible for you to distinguish between the two guards.You have permission to ask one guard one question to ascertain which path leads to Paradise. Remember that you do not know which guard you're asking -- the truth-teller or the liar -- and that this single question determines whether you live or die. The question is: What one question asked of one guard guarantees that you are led onto the path to Paradise, regardless of which guard you happen to ask?
"If I asked the _other_ guard, which door would he indicate.


Devotional Thoughts Of The Day

Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: Colossians 1:13. References from Exodus 12:1-42.

There's something very appealing about rescue operations, the greatest of which is in the book of Exodus. Here we see a developing pattern of God's saving grace. Just as He chose one man, Abraham, through whom He would bless all the peoples of the earth; He has also chosen this nation, Israel. However, before this nation could become a blessing, they would have to be freed from natural captivity. Exodus 12 is really the summary of the first eleven chapters, which record the efforts of Satan to block God's plans and leadership. 
The book opens with the cruel plot to crush the Jews through forced labor (1:11), but the Jews continued to increase.Then the Pharaoh ordered the murder of all Jewish baby boys, but God intervened again (1:15-20). The story of Moses' birth (Ex 2) is an entire rescue operation in itself! God's protection of His people is linked to His covenant promise to Abraham (Ex 3:13-17). Exodus 12 describes the final plague. Although this plague was to fall upon every firstborn in Egypt, the Lord provided a substitution for the Israelites: a spotless yearling lamb, whose blood was to be spread around the outside door frame (v7). In this way, the plague would pass over the Israelite households (v22).
 As we read this account, it can be difficult to see how this was a blessing to the nation of Egypt. But notice that many other people, presumably Egyptians, left with the Israelites (v38). They likely saw the power of God and wanted to join His people... God made a way for all repentant people, no matter who they were. Keep in mind also that God's purpose for rescuing the Israelites was to make them a great nation that would be a blessing to all the nations of the earth, including Egypt. 


God's Banner Over Me 

And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah nissi (Jehovah is my banner): For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation. Exodus 17:15-16.

Queen Elizabeth II of England has three royal residences (BuckinghamPalace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyrood) plus two privatehomes. This could be confusing for those who want to find her except for one important fact: the queen's banner always flies over whichever residence she is currently occupying. If her banner of blue and gold is on the flagpole, the queen is sure to be present.
Moses also had a banner. After the battle with the army of Amalek, he built an altar and called it "The Lord Is My Banner." Moses wanted everyone to know that God was in residence with His people. Despite the attacks of the Amalekites, God would never desert the people of Israel. Generation after generation could look up and know that the Lord was present in their midst. 
As Christians, we should raise the Lord's banner over our lives. No matter how difficult our situation becomes, God will not abandon His residence (our bodies are now the temple, residence, of the Holy Spirit). The apostle John declared, "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us" (John 1:14). And Jesus said, "I am with you always, even to the end of the age" (Matt 28:20). If the King is present, His banner should fly. Is it obvious to those around you that the King is in residence in your life? Make sure that His flag, coloured with faith, hope and love, flies high over the castle of your life. It's a privilege to fly that banner; it's a shame not to.
