Is God enough?

February 27th, 2012

If everything that is  YOU is suddenly gone and all you have left is God is that enough for you?.  How you answer that depends on the kind of relationship you have with  him now.  Do you love the benefits or do you love God? Does how you feel about God depend on if you are winning or losing? Hear a lot of “Christians” quick to give all the glory to God when it is good, but rarely do you hear them give God the glory for the hard time. And I think we all have to answer the question???


I  think the answer is in the CROSS am I using it, in some kind of self-serving way? or have I found life in my death?

The Lord said  “take up my cross and follow me”.  To follow Christ is to follow him through death and if you are dead you can hold on to anything in this world. I must confess I have held on to somethings in this world for to long and I think to day is a good day to let go, and hold on to the CROSS. and thats the way I see it in my market.

Community or the lack of

February 16th, 2012

I had a great time last night at our Wednesday night gathering, after the meal time we have been working through a study on apologetics. We have been talking about all the thing that trip people up when it comes to matters of faith in the bible, God, Jesus Christ and so on. When a very important point was raise! Why are we so disconnected from each other? And again my mind and heart floods back to Acts 2:42-47

This is the model of a New Testament Church.

42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 parsing God and having favor with all people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

Can we expect God to move in our life and in the life of others if we live to a standard less than this?????

We have a fundamental issue that has to be corrected And it starts with Jesus He has to come to the front of the line in our lives……until we put HIM first, nobody else has a chance and NoBody will believe our message. and thats the way i see it in my market.

If I could do it again?

February 8th, 2012

I just had a birthday a couple of weeks ago, for those of you who must know I am 51. There seems to be something about 50 that means you should have learned something things, I mean after 50 years you should know if what your doing is working or not. I think it is a time to have an honest evaluation of where you are in life, if your on the right path and your life is bearing fruit great, but if that is not the case maybe it is time for a change. So, if I could do it again???? I would………….not in any order……..

  • Love more and hate less
  • spend more time with people than things
  • I would work on being kinder
  • I would slow down
  • play more with my kids
  • dream more
  • Laugh a lot  more
  • pray more, study less
  • be where I am
  • say no more
  • read the words in red more (a lot more)
  • make friends with people different than me
  • have more self-control
  • live in the freedom that God has given me in Christ
  • criticize less, encourage more
  • Love God and Love people more
  • work on my relationships
I know that there is more but the most important thing would be living a life that is empowered by the Holy Spirit to represent God in a way that is both supernatural and approachable. for with God all ALL Things are possible. as I look at my list I see a lot of work yet to do, How about you what would do differently???
Thank God for his forgiveness because without Him, well what would be the point. I have today to make a difference, so I think I will give it a shot because today is the only day I have for sure. and thats the way I see it in my market.
