Read The Bible In a Year

Numbers 32-34; Mark 9:30-50.

Live now. Make 'now' always the most precious time. 'Now' will never come again.

Self-importance is our greatest enemy.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love.

Personal Story Of The Day

These Things Will All Pass

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has a personal story that sounds familiar to Christians... “I had failed on an epic scale. An exceptionally short-lived marriage had imploded, and I was jobless, a lone parent, and as poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain, without being homeless. The fears that my parents had had for me, and that I had had for myself, had both come to pass, and by every usual standard, I was the biggest failure I knew.” 

Nothing here on earth lasts forever, particularly our problems. The Bible tells us the earth will someday melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up (2 Peter 3:10). We need to keep life in perspective. Most of the things we worry about have no eternal significance. The writer of Hebrews was concerned about our perspective. Throughout the book, he keeps our eyes focused on heaven and away from earth. 

Unless our minds are on heaven, we will have little eternal influence on earth. There will come a time when the earth will be shaken, and things that once seemed permanent will be gone (Hebrews 12:27). What you fear most today will be forgotten like yesterday's headlines. What really matters is what you do today that has a touch of eternity about it.


Jokes Of The Day


Three guys found themselves in Hades: we will call them Brian, Bob, and Kevin, they were a little confused at their present situation, and they were startled to see a door in the wall open, and behind the door was perhaps the ugliest woman they had ever seen. She was no beauty at all, and her perfume smelled even worse than the Brimstone.

The voice of the Devil was heard, 'Brian, you have sinned! You are condemned to spend the rest of eternity married to this woman!' And Brian was whisked through the door by a group of lesser demons to his torment.

This understandably shook up the other two, and so they both jumped when a second door opened, and they saw an even more disgusting example of womanhood gone wrong. She was over 7' tall, monstrous, lacking even more appeal than the last one.

The voice of the Devil was heard, 'Bob, you have sinned! You are condemned to spend the rest of eternity married to this woman!' And Bob, like Brian, was whisked off.

Kevin, now alone, felt understandably anxious, and feared the worst when the third door opened. And as the door inched open, he strained to see the figure of ... Cindy Crawford. Delighted, Kevin jumped up, taking in the sight of this beautiful woman. Then he heard the voice of the Devil saying:

'Cindy, you have sinned ........'

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

A man and a woman were just divorced, on their way out of the courthouse they are both killed by a runaway bus. In heaven, they have second thoughts about their divorce so they go to St. Peter and ask to be remarried. St. Peter said 'come back in 15 years!'

Fifteen years later they're back and a minister remarries them. Soon after they start fighting again, and want to split up. So they go back to St. Peter and ask to be divorced. St. Peter throws up his hands and says 'It took me 15 years to find a preacher up here and now you want me to find a lawyer??!!

Riddle Of The Day

Mary's parents have four children, north, south and east. What's the fourth child's name?


Answer to Yesterdays Riddle
Never speaking, still awake, Pleasing most when most I speak, The Delight of old and young, Tho' I speak without a Tongue. Nought but one Thing can confound me, Many Voices joining round me; Then I fret, and rave and gabble, Like the Labourers of Babel. Now I am a Dog, or Cow, I can bark, or I can low, I can bleat, or I can sing, Like the Warblers of the Spring. Let the Love-sick Bard complain, And I mourn the cruel Pain; Let the happy Swain rejoice, And I join my helping Voice; Both are welcome, Grief or Joy,I with either sport and toy. Tho' a Lady, I am stout, Drums and Trumpets bring me out; Then I clash and roar, and rattle, Join in all the Din of Battle. Jove, with all his loudest Thunder, When I'm vext, can't keep me under; Yet so tender is my Ear, That the lowest Voice I fear; Much I dread the Courtier's Fate, When his Merit's out of Date, For I hate a silent Breath, And a Whisper is my Death. Jonathan Swift, (1667-1745).
An Echo.


Devotional Thoughts Of The Day


A Hope For All people

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, Luke 1:68. References from Luke 2:1-20.

Many people today don't believe that they need a saviour; they don't even want to think about it. The entire Bible is the single story of human beings lost and without spiritual purpose rebelling against their Creator and the better life he had for them. Very few people in the world understand God's great love for His people. The angels brought good news of the birth of Jesus who would be God's answer to the desperate condition of every human being. 

God's good news of salvation is the hope of all peoples and all nations, regardless of where they are located or what language they speak. As the angel proclaims, this good news is for all the people. 


This short study will trace the wisdom of God's good news for all the nations, beginning with humanity's fall and ending with ceaseless worship of the multitude before His eternal throne. We will look at key passages that show the depth and glory of God's love for humanity, which is fully expressed in Jesus Christ. In our study, we will see that even though God often works through one person, such as Abraham, or one nation, such as Israel, His offer of salvation has always been intended for everyone, everywhere.


Slow Down

And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the LORD, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink. Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, give us water that we may drink, And Moses said, unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the LORD? And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst? Exodus 17:1-3. 

Where road work is taking place, which seems to be all over the city at all times, a sign frequently will be posted that reads, "slow down." This has a double message: one is to slow down, and the other is to spare the workers from injuries caused by carelessness or accident. Highway workers do their job under hazardous conditions and we need to give them some form of safety. 

The same sign could have been posted outside the tents of Aaron and Moses. Time after time the people of Israel rushed into judgment against their leaders until finally, here at Rephidim, they were ready to stone Moses to death (v4). Only God's intervention prevented a tragedy. Without question, these people needed to slow down and give Moses some space. Be very careful when tempted to be critical of your pastor or other church leaders. You may find yourself not only opposing them, but God as well. 

Slow down before passing judgment, sincerely check your motives, and make sure there is a sound, biblical reason for your complaint and not simply a personality issue. If you don't like the road works, why not join in and help improve things, without giving up when obstacles arise. More often than not, what you need to do is "slow down".
