Gems From Pastor Jim – 12/18/2018

by Jim Hughes

CrossEccl. 3: 18 Then I realized that God allows people to continue in their sinful ways so he can test them. That way, they can see for themselves that they are no better than animals.

If God wanted to, He could make us do what is right in His eyes. He could force His ways upon us. He could take care of sin without any problem at all. But, He has not chosen to do it. In a lot of ways, I think it would make living a much easier process. At least then, we wouldn’t be constantly struggling to not sin. But then, we would be merely robots in God’s hands and not able to have a love relationship with Him. We would not be able to know Him in a deep and personal way, as one who helps us in our times of need and struggles.

God knows that the real test of one’s faith is how we handle sin. He knows what we should know, that if we are His children we will not continue to sin against Him. God is holy and there is no sin found in Him. If He lives in us and controls us, then we should not sin against Him. It’s as simple and plain as that. There is no wiggle room when it comes to sin. It is detestable to God and will be judged by Him.

No one has to tell you that sin is a problem for you. We all know that we are not as godly as we would like to be or as others perceive us to be. Sin is common to all people. The more sin we see in us, the more we realize that we need the Lord. We must have the Lord’s help if we are going to have victory over sin, because it is too powerful for us to overcome on our own.

When we don’t let the Lord help us, we will do as the animals do; we will follow our sinful instincts. We can’t change our ways on our own. We are born sinners and will die sinners without the Lord. Denying that it is so does not change it. God makes it very clear in His Word.

You will never know the peace of God while dabbling in sin. You will know how strong your faith really is by how well you resist sinning. Your love for God is seen in how you handle sin. If you find yourself yielding to sin more than you do resisting it, you are not living in fellowship with God.

Dear friend. Only Jesus can help you with your sin problem. No one can stop you from sinning, but Christ can help you overcome your desire to sin. Let Jesus be your Lord and you will discover that you will no longer be a victim to sin; instead, you will be a victor over it.

The Most Precious Gift

Send to Kindle
by C. J. Peterson
People rushing around, not understanding the reason;
Don’t have any comprehension that this is the Season.
A baby born, wrapped in swaddling clothes,
To be a sacrifice, he was willing to pose.
A gift to the world of the most sacrificial love;
A gift, that often uses the symbol of a dove.
Peace on Earth, good will toward men;
Doing everything humanly possible to do all that they can.
They don’t understand, it’s not what they do;
They don’t understand, they don’t have a clue.
The Father – giving of His Child;
The Son – making a sacrifice that is hardly mild.
The crucifixion – a place hardly of glory;
The Resurrection – our saving grace story!
The most precious gift, that only Jesus could give;
The perfect blood sacrifice, so that in eternity, with Him, we will live!
John 15:13 – Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.  Jesus is the reason for the season! Share His love with another today!!

Most Precious Gift

About the Author:

CJ PetersonI was raised in a Christian military home, but it was far from tranquil. Like many young people, I left home as soon as possible, and went my own way, thinking I knew better. To me anything was better than where I was. Unfortunately, some of the choices I made led me away from the Lord, and sometimes that path was a dangerous one.
God is faithful, even when His children are lost and wandering. When I needed Him most, the Lord was there for me. He led me out of that danger and into a new life…a life where I am loved and appreciated. He taught me what ‘real love’ is, and what it’s supposed to look like through my family and wonderful husband.
Who knew that “Prince Charming” actually existed? I hoped and prayed he was out there, and I found him! He is a 24 year Navy veteran and the love of my life! With his encouragement, I rediscovered the creativity I thought I had lost a long time ago, and have begun to publish the books I have written through the years. The words in these books helped me through my struggles, and my prayer is they will help others.
The way in which I write my Christian Books, is unique to say the least. I am a realistic Christian. People are people, they stumble, they fall, they trip, but God continues to dust us off, and set us back on the path again, if we just learn to trust in Him.
The challenges faced in my past give me a perspective on the realities of living the Christian life that some people may never see. There are times we wander away from God…there are times when we draw closer to Him. In our arrogance we think we can make it on our own. However, the One who made this world, and who made you, has the answers, and thankfully, He forgives our impudence and petulance and loves us through it all. God is a God of love, mercy, grace, and guidance. He loves us and only wants the best for us.
Those who have read my books, describe them as encouraging, frustrating, and a wonderful read all at the same time. The same character that could have you crying one minute, will have you cheering the next! One of my editors, stated that ‘she was so into the story, that she forgot to edit, and had to go back to do the editing’.
I pray you will enjoy my books as well!

While the stories are fiction, the journey is real.

Faith’s checkbook: Nothing Old

Send to Kindle

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new”   (Revelation 21:5).

Glory be to His name! All things need making new, for they are sadly battered and worn by sin. It is time that the old vesture was rolled up and laid aside, and that creation put on her Sunday suit. But no one else can make all things new except the LORD who made them at the first; for it needs as much power to make out of evil as to make out of nothing. Our LORD Jesus has undertaken the task, and He is fully competent for the performance of it. Already he has commenced His labor, and for centuries He has persevered in making new the hearts of men and the order of society. By and by He will make new the whole constitution of human government, and human nature shall be changed by His grace; and there shall come a day when the body shall be made new and raised like unto His glorious body. What a joy to belong to a kingdom in which everything is being made new by the power of its King! We are not dying out: we are hastening on to a more glorious life. Despite the opposition of the powers of evil, our glorious LORD Jesus is accomplishing His purpose and making us, and all things about us, “new” and as full of beauty as when they first came from the hand of the LORD.

Blown Down, Fall Forward

Send to Kindle

by Rebekah Beene

Our outdoor blow up Santa keeps falling face forward. We pick him back up but it keeps happening. One good gust of wind and he’s back on his face.

When the winds of adversity or change come it tends to blow us over doesn’t it? It’s hard to stand resolute in the mess.

Oh beloved, when you feel like you’re being blown away by life remember it’s okay to fall forward. Your job is not to be strong enough but to fall into the Fathers arms. To fall on your face in prayer. He will always pick you up and steady you again. He hears your hear cries when no one else knows a thing.

He doesn’t just hear you, He works even the harshest winds for good on your behalf. What seems impossible to believe can ever be a good turn out will finally end in victory. Does that mean God puts you through it all? No. But He is your Shelter, your Answer, your Commander and your Lord.  As you learn to fall forward towards Him you will see He never fails to come to your aid nor to set you aright. You’re not the victim of this life’s harsh realities. You are a citizen of heaven with all the promises of God in hand!

God loves you and He’s for you. He’s not counting your troubles nor is He blaming you or putting you under condemnation. Run to Him this morning and let Him speak love songs to your heart as you live in the light of His mercy and grace.

Psalm 71:5 For You have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.

Isaiah 49:13 Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the LORD comforts His people and will have compassion on His afflicted ones

Lamentations 3:25 The LORD is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him

Proverbs 24:16 The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked.

Gems From Pastor Jim – 12/11/2018

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossEccl. 2:10-11 Anything I wanted, I took. I did not restrain myself from any joy. I even found great pleasure in hard work, an additional reward for all my labors. But as I looked at everything I had worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless. It was like chasing the wind. There was nothing really worthwhile anywhere.

What are you living for? What gives your life meaning? We spend our entire lives trying to give our lives meaning. Most will try to do good things. Many try to carve their niche out in the world. Many will seek fame, fortune or a following. Many put all their energy in their families. Many will rally around a cause they are passionate about. Many are working hard for the day in which they can retire and coast the rest of the days of their lives.

No matter what you are working for to give your life meaning, it is all meaningless if what you are living for is rooted in the world. There is nothing on earth that really give life meaning. We live and then die. Whatever we live for dies with us. We can’t take anything on earth with us when we die. It is all so meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

It is only when we find our meaning in relationship with Christ that we find something worth living for. Nothing on earth can promise us eternal life. Nothing can do us any good as far as keeping us out of hell. Our only hope of eternal life is to live life in Christ. Only Christ can assure us that what we are doing makes any difference at all.

Dear friend, take a careful and honest look at your life. What are you relying on to give your life meaning? If it is not a relationship with Christ, you are living in vain. You may be enjoying the fruit of your labors now, but it won’t last. Your purpose for life will die with you if you do not have Christ. If you know Christ, live like it. Put your heart into it. Make the Lord your number one priority in your life. It is only in Christ that you will find a hope that will not die.

If you don’t know that Christ is your Savior, today is the day you must get right with God. You don’t know if you will see the end of your day. Your life will take on a whole new meaning if you will let Him into your heart. You will find that there is indeed something worth living for. Christ will forgive you of your sins if you turn to Him, confess them, repent, and ask Him for forgiveness. What are you waiting for? Do it now. You will be glad you did.

Gift of Strength; Peace to Bless

Send to Kindle

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“The LORD will give strength unto His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace”   (Psalm 29:11).

David had just heard the voice of the LORD in a thunderstorm and had seen His power in the hurricane whose path he had described; and now, in the cool calm after the storm, that overwhelming power by which heaven and earth are shaken is promised to be the strength of the chosen. He who wings the unerring bolt will give to His redeemed the wings of eagles; He who shakes the earth with His voice will terrify the enemies of His saints and give His children peace. Why are we weak when we have divine strength to flee to? Why are we troubled when the LORD’s own peace is ours? Jesus, the mighty God, is our strength; let us put Him on and go forth to our service. Jesus, our blessed LORD, is also our peace; let us repose in Him this day and end our fears. What a blessing to have Him for our strength and peace both now and forever! That same God who rides upon the storm in days of tempest will also rule the hurricane of our tribulation and send us, before long, days of peace. We shall have strength for storms and songs for fair weather. Let us begin to sing at once unto God, our strength and our peace. Away, dark thoughts! Up, faith and hope!

Amazing Christmas

Send to Kindle

by Sherry Chamblee

Christmas amazes me, every time I sit and think about it. God Himself fashioning Himself in the form of man and coming to be born, to live, and to die for our sakes… isn’t that amazing? What a massive change that would have been for Christ. While I understand He’s eternal, for Him nothing is new. And yet to us, to our flawed human perception, Christ-as-a-child was going through extensive differences in His surroundings when He came to earth.

We’re coming up to some major changes in our life as a family right now. Like life-altering, everything being different sort of changes.  

I don’t really know how to comprehend that. I’m used to being able to see ahead a bit, to navigate my path by sight – as in mental sight. I can see what’s coming next a good portion of the time. So in those times when I cannot see it, I’m thrown. I feel rocked, even though nothing has actually changed yet. Just the anticipation of the changes coming is enough to make me feel at odds. I’m feeling vulnerable.

Then I started thinking, and something struck me in particular about Christmas this year. God not only came to live alongside us, but God put Himself in the hands of mankind. He placed Himself at our mercy. He created a situation in which humanity was tasked with caring for Him, rather than Him caring for these humans. His humanity came to earth in a vulnerable state. 

This is tricky wording here, and I don’t mean to claim that God was dependent on anyone else for His actual wellbeing, but in a sense, He made Himself vulnerable. He put Himself at the mercy of Mary and Joseph, and He left it to them to care for Himself during her pregnancy, their flight from Bethlehem to Egypt, their journey back to Nazareth, and all the years leading up to the beginning of His ministry.  

He did that on purpose. It was all part of His plan. Doesn’t that amaze you?

So while change is frightening, being vulnerable is risky, I can take solace in knowing that God has it all planned out. Whatever it is, God will have something to His glory in anything that happens to us. It might come years from now, it might come tomorrow, but He will be glorified, and His kingdom will be advanced.

Gems From Pastor Jim – 12/4/2018

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossEccl. 1:9-11 History merely repeats itself; it has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. What can you point to that is new? How do you know it didn’t already exist long ago? We don’t remember what happened in those former times. And in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now.

Things never change. The details may vary, but the things that are happening today are merely a repeat of what has happened before. Man’s nature is today what it was the day Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ushered in sin into the world. It has reared its ugly head in unimaginable ways, and it always will. Without Christ changing it, the heart remains desperately wicked.

You cannot read history without being exposed to the ugliness and destructive nature of sin. It is the cause of all the inhumane treatment that has plagued humanity. It is the cause of all the hatred amongst men. It is the cause of all the self-serving throughout history. We don’t have to live in the past to know that it is true. Secular and Biblical history are all the proof we need. As much as we would like to convince ourselves, there never has been an age of innocence since the time of the fall of man.

All the atrocities that have plagued man throughout history are not recorded. Because of the advent of modern technology we have been exposed to some of the worst of what man can do to man, but we cannot say that it hasn’t been done before. The sin encrusted soul is capable of any form of evil that you could ever imagine. It will continue to be the way it us for as long as man is on the earth. As bad as things are and has been, we know that the worst is yet to come.

God has warned us of what to expect on earth after Jesus comes and takes the church out of it. Unimaginable horror will plague the earth. When God removes His hand of protection over the earth, evil will rule unbridled. It will be a time in which not only will man suffer from one another, but God will unleash the horrors of nature upon man as a result of his sins.

The future may be bleak, but you don’t have to be a victim of it. God gives us a way of escape, and it is Christ Jesus our Lord. God promises us a bright and glorious future if we put our trust and confidence in Him. We have nothing to fear when Jesus is our Savior and Lord. We can boldly face the future with our lives rooted and established in Christ. Is Jesus your Savior today?

The Prayer Quota

Send to Kindle

by Precarious Yates

Have you ever been so overwhelmed by needs that when going to God in prayer you start to think he won’t answer half of them because there are just too many? Are you too needy for God?

I woke up at 5:30am after being up most of the night. My son had been given 3 shots the day before, and he spent the night writhing in pain. But one good thing: my husband was due for a raise and we would finally have enough to cover the bills!

As my son slept quietly for the first time all night, I checked the bank balance.

The raise didn’t show up. Apparently, it wouldn’t show up for a few paychecks.

I sensed the nudge from God to give more than usual anyway. Whispering a prayer, I tapped in the numbers. We wouldn’t have enough, but I was going to trust the Lord. I asked Him to provide.

Breakfast time was fraught with more than its usual dose of chaos: the power went out! This was my first time encountering an automatic garage door without power. I prayed, and God highlighted the instructions for me. Ever have that happen? I love that! My school-aged daughter was also willing to help me open the door! God was on the move!

Then came grocery shopping. Those of us who shop for picky eaters on a tight budget know how much prayer goes into one of those trips.

It was 11 o’clock, I was leaving the grocery store, and I felt like I had reached my quota for prayer requests for the day. Yet the chaos was FAR from over.

So, it seemed, were the answers to the prayers.

By the time we returned home, the power had come back on!

I asked God for strength as I carried my son and then all the groceries upstairs. But I couldn’t get the garage door to close again. I prayed.

My phone buzzed with a text from my mother-in-law. Did I need help with anything? Oh yes! I texted back. Within a half an hour, my father-in-law showed up to help me with the garage door!

I now had time to wash all the bedding. Then, in the middle of the washing machine’s cycle, there’s a loud “clunk”.

The washing machine broke. I had to take everything out, wring it out by hand, and walk away. We hadn’t paid off the washer and it was already broken? I took a deep breath and prayed, sitting beside my young son. He was still so sick. Deep circles shadowed his eyes. I prayed for him. My son fell asleep.

The principal called. One of my kids had participated in a classroom-wide effort to make the substitute teacher’s life a complete misery. There were other matters that needed wisdom—great wisdom. I asked the only One who gives wisdom. I needed it!

At school pickup time, my son was still sleeping. While my son slept, my daughter told her side of the story. God gave me ears to hear and words to say.

Inclement weather inspired more prayers for my husband’s commute. Surely I had exhausted my quota by now! But I needed someone on whom to cast my anxiety.

Dinner was cooked and hours had passed, and my son still slept. After four hours, I began to worry. Here it was, almost 7pm, and I had prayed for eight hours already after I felt like I had exhausted my quota. But this was my son! When he awoke a few minutes later, the dark circles were gone and he was breathing clearer than he had all day!

For the first time all week, an internet search turned up the right information, and I found the part I would need for the washer!

Then my husband came home.

It seems that prayer-quota thing wasn’t real.

Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 5:3

I had no idea just how poor I was, and how poor I would be before the end of the day.

I sat on the couch and promptly fell asleep, forgetting to take my medicine. I woke again in enough time to take it. But I didn’t want the nightmares that regularly accompanied my meds. I turned to my Father of Light, who is the giver of every good and perfect gift!

The next morning, I woke from a beautiful dream and checked on my son. He was feeling even better!

I’m so glad there is no prayer quota for me per day. And there is no prayer quota for you either!

“Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” – Psalm 55:22

He wants to hear our prayers, both big and small. He keeps track of every single one!

You’ve kept track of all my wandering and my weeping.
You’ve stored my many tears in your bottle—not one will be lost.
For they are all recorded in your book of remembrance. – Psalm 56:8, The Passion Translation

And never forget:

The very moment I call to you for a father’s help
the tide of battle turns and my enemies flee.
This one thing I know: God is on my side! -Psalm 56:9

Keep praying and do not lose heart! (See Luke 18:1)

God bless you!
