Memorable Scripture: Turning your heart away from God.

But King Solomon loved many foreign women… For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the Lord his God, as was the heart of his father David. 1 Kings 11:1, 4 Continue reading

Waxed Cold

Here is a comment sent to me by a good friend in response to yesterday’s Morning Thought.

It’s harder than ever to reach people for Christ.
I am very active in a Christ-based recovery group and I am fixing to go to a meeting as I write this.
I try to get people to come; offering transportation to and from and it’s next to impossible to get people to commit and this is a true and viable way out of the worm hole that addicts live in.
People’s hearts have waxed cold. It’s very discouraging but at the same time it’s a faith builder to have prophesy being fulfilled before my very eyes.
I’ve been doing this a few months and have seen 1 person pull up and accept Jesus. “Celebrate recovery.”

Read what Jesus said and compare it to what my friend has said.

‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand and seeing you will see and not perceive; for the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing,
and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them.’ Matt 13:14-15

If your heart is dull or waxed cold, it will cause you to close your eyes and ears to any opportunity to be saved or healed by the Lord.

Be a witness in your own shoes!

Are we spinning our wheels?
Is it a lost cause?
Is it hopeless and America’s fate is sealed?
Will there be true revival or is there nothing but apostasy? Continue reading

Free from Sin – Not to Sin!

set free copyOn the last Thought I shared verses that say under the Law there was a remembrance of sin year after year and therefore there was sacrifice for sin year after year.
But Jesus came once for all time because He does what the blood of bulls and goats cannot do – cleanse all sin from your life. Continue reading

Removing God

In case you missed it, the DNC removed “God” from any language in their platform. Then they added it back.
I watched the video of the vote, which took three tries, and I don’t think they had a 2/3 majority to add “God” back. Continue reading

Use What God Gives You!

I think back many years ago and see myself as a young man in church. With me are many friends.
We sing together, study, pray, and learn together. We are in the Christmas plays together, playing volleyball together, and worshipping together.
Now I look at their lives today I see many of them have deserted the Way. Continue reading

Even so!

I copied this Facebook status from a friend I went to college with – “As it was in the days of Lot”… Signs of the “Falling Away” are everywhere. People are increasingly without natural affection, hurting each other, trampling the rights of others while chasing the almighty dollar. Continue reading
