Jesus Will Never Give Up On You!

Jesus wants you to know He is always available to you. No matter your circumstance, position in life or emotional state, Jesus is never far. Jesus is a constant, not an acquaintance or part-time-friend. He’s simply a thought or a whisper away. In fact Jesus is knocking at your door, right now, waiting for you to invite Him into your life.

 Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

You need to understand the truth about Jesus and not believe the lies unbelievers spread:

5 Instructions From Jesus

God blessed the world with the Bible for us to follow. It’s through the gospels we find instructions given to us directly from Jesus, and throughout the New Testament those same instructions are repeated by various writers.

In the short book of James, written by Jesus’ half brother James, we find each of it’s five chapters give specific messages on how to live a Christian life.

At the time of the writing Christians were scattered throughout the Roman world, so James wrote his letter to encourage the dispersed followers to not falter. Although the Bible does not offer much information about James being intricately involved with Jesus before the crucifixion, we find after the resurrection James clearly becomes a leading figure in the early church and shares these five instructions from Jesus.

7 Bible Verses to Start The New Year

So maybe your year didn’t pan out exactly as you had hoped? Sadly, mine didn’t. I penned a Christian screenplay with high hopes of finding a producer/director who would read it. There definitely is disappointment in my heart as 2019 ends with no readers so far.

I’m allowed to wallow a bit, right? Temporarily of course, because I know there’s something more important in life than an unread manuscript.

The joy of our risen Savior.

I know through Jesus all things are possible. Of course humans can’t see or know what will happen the in future, but we can, however, fully trust that what Jesus did for us in the past on the cross is eternally sufficient.

Are experiencing disappointment, frustration, anxiety, or sadness from 2019? If so, please know God is always with you. And right now–the start of a new year–is the perfect time to turn your pain over to Christ and allow Him into your life.

God’s Gift to Mankind–JESUS!

Jesus Christ did not come into the world to condemn. Jesus came to be a friend to all that are willing to receive Him.

Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Like a friend tapping  on your door waiting for you to answer; Jesus taps at your heart, waiting for you to receive His gift. Picture your friend standing there holding a large box just for you!

Jesus Can Bring You Back From The Dead!

We all have bad days. Days filled with sorrow, depression, anxiety. Days which we can’t wait for them to be over . Occasional bad days are just part of the nature of living and we move on, right?

However, there are circumstances in life that deem to overwhelm us (stay with me, this post isn’t depressing it tells about receiving life not staying in death). Overwhelming occurs because the circumstances don’t change even after a good nights sleep. The job environment remains crappy. The marital stress hovers at the dinner table. The savings account goes down instead of up. What gives?

How can we overcome that dead feeling of separation from all things that bring joy?

Be Thankful

Be Thankful

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.

 

I pray God blesses you, gives you strength, and your faith in Him expands so that you trust Him with all areas of your life.—Debra

Jesus Offered Thanks To God

Jesus offered thanks to God

Offering Thanks

Two thousand years ago not far from the town of Bethsaida in Israel, along the shores of the Sea of Galilee, a Nazarene Man filled the stomachs of 5,000 men (total does not reflect women and children in attendance) who gathered together in a grassy area.

How did He do it?

The wondrous deed was not done through the typical process of planning and preparation of food, but was accomplished on-the-spot by the Nazarene looking into the heavens and giving thanks!
