The bridegroom

In John Chapter 14, Jesus is telling His disciples that He must leave them. In verses 1-3 He says, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you be with me that you will also be where I am.”

This is a beautiful picture of Christ returning for His bride, the Church. This mirrors the Jewish tradition of the betrothal of a young man to his bride to be.

The bridegroom must ask his intended’s father for her hand in marriage. If the father says yes, then the bridegroom goes to his father and begins making plans for a place to bring his bride after the wedding.

He may build a room onto his father’s house or maybe a house on his father’s land. He cannot ...

Never, never

We have been studying the book of Joshua in church for the last few weeks. It is an amazing story of how God kept His promise to the people of Israel as they prepared to enter the holy land.

The God that you and I serve and worship is the same today as He was 3,400 years ago when they were preparing to cross the Jordan River.

Wherever you read in the Bible, it is directed to you today. Some people think what happened thousands of years ago, doesn’t affect us in 2016. But that’s not true. In the Bible, everything relates to us today as believers. We learn from history, and the Bible is a detailed history book about the human condition, and what not to repeat.

It also gives us Godly wisdom and advice on how we can live here on earth, and still have the peace of God. While God’s people were preparing to enter the holy land, God encouraged Joshua with these words, “Have I not commanded ...

The Lord loves a cheerful giver

Being a cheerful giver is usually said in reference to being glad to give our tithes and offerings in church. Even though this is absolutely true, the subject of giving is much broader than just money. It’s really about heart conditions.

3,000 years ago, King David wrote a lot about attitudes, and how we are to give of ourselves to God. He writes about the manner in which we are to approach our heavenly Father.

God is always there for us, even during our lowest and darkest times.

But if we can do what David encourages us to do, in Psalm 100, even our darkness can be turned to light. Starting with, verses: 1-5, “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures ...
