Thought For Today - August 21
What did Jesus say? - How should we react to persecution?

No one can out give God.
    Jesus said: :Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you." Matthew 5: 11,12.
    If, for the cause of Christ we make ourselves vulnerable to be reviled, ridiculed, spit upon, abused, neglected, and abandoned by even our own familiar family and friends -  even if we suffer physical pain and death, even as the martyrs of old have done, we should count it all joy because God has great rewards for all those who endure such things.
    If we must face persecution for Christ, we should never be ashamed of him, for we will be more than conquerors with him in the end. Consider the suffering and persecution that he suffered for our salvation, and see how God has rewarded him for his obedience by giving him a name above every name to whom every knee shall eventually bow.
    When we are being persecuted for righteousness sake, we are in good company with all the prophets which went before us.

 Thought For Today -August 20
 What did Jesus say? - About Persecution?

    Many people, down through the centuries, have suffered persecutions for the cause of Christ, and for the preaching of his gospel.  Jesus warned his disciples, and us, that to follow him would mean persecution and suffering.
    The bible says that Satan is a liar, and cannot tolerate truth, so wherever truth is lived and preached, Satan will be at work to stop it.
    We live in a relatively free country here in America. We have not yet known religious persecution as some in other countries have; but there are many today in our country who would suppress any mention of God in public places, particularly, the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Bible reading and prayer is being banned from the public school system and sporting events. If we remain steadfast and remain true to the teaching of the word of God, we stand in line for persecution from the ungodly world. Who knows to where it might lead? It might lead perhaps to martyrdom and death.
    Only as we derive our strength from a one on one personal relationship with Jesus Christ can we find the grace and strength to endure such persecution.
    Jesus said: "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5: 10.
    If we are being persecuted for the cause of Christ and his righteousness, and bear it patiently to the end, Jesus said we would be blessed and inherit the kingdom of heaven.
    We must, however, be sure that if we are persecuted, it is not for any misdeeds of our own, for then we would deserve persecution; but for the cause of Christ, let us be steadfast and unmovable, trusting him to bring us through trials and difficulties for his name's sake.

Thought For Today - August 18 - What Did Jesus Say? - About The Heart?

Thought For Today - August 18 - What Did Jesus Say?- About The Heart?

 Thought For Today - August 18
 What did Jesus say? - About the condition of the heart?

    In its natural state, the heart of man is desperately wicked. Who can know it?
    When the bible speaks of the heart, it is not referring to the physical heart, the pump that circulates the blood through our bodies, but is speaking of the innermost personality, the mind and the soul.
    In the depths of our subconscious mind there are impurities which have been inherited from our ancestors down through the ages. Until we are changed by being born again, as it were, by receiving Christ as our savior and allowing the Holy Spirit to descend into the basement of our mind and soul, and dig out those evil thoughts and imaginations, and rebellion against God, we cannot expect the Holy Spirit to feel at home there.
    There is no cleaning detergent on earth that can purify our innermost being, our heart, and soul, except the shed blood of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
    When we have believed, and received him by faith, and allowed him to apply his blood to our account, his blood washes us and makes us whiter than snow.
    When our hearts are pure because of what Christ has accomplished for us, then we are considered pure in heart, and we can sense the presence of God in our lives, and we can see God as he wants us to see him.
    Jesus said: "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God." Matthew 5:8.

 What did Jesus say? - About peacemakers?

    To be at peace with God and with one's self is a great blessing; and to be at peace with our fellowmen is also a great blessing.
"Peace ! Peace ! wonderful peace that cometh down from the Father above!"
    Peace, that sense of calm and contentment, knowing all is well between us and God; that sense of assurance that there is nothing to fear, because God, our loving heavenly Father is in control.
    How wonderful it would be if all men everywhere could be at peace with God through Jesus Christ, for then, and only then, can they be at peace with one another throughout the world.
    Jesus said: "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." Mathew 5: 9.
    To be a promoter of peace with God, and peace among men is a calling of God to all his children.
To point men and women and boys and girls to the Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of sins and salvation is our duty.
    "Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another." Romans 14:19.
    May we who are the redeemed children of God, strive to be peacemakers so that we may be blessed of God.

 What did Jesus say? - About mercy?

    The definition of mercy is: a quality of compassion, clemency, a refraining from the infliction of suffering by one who has the right or power to inflict.
    One of the attributes of God is his mercy. God has compassion on all of his creatures, and is not willing that any should perish. He certainly has the right and power to inflict suffering to punish evil doers, but God is long suffering and withholds his wrath from falling upon those of us who deserve it. Instead he pours out his grace, unmerited favor, favor that we have not earned, and do not deserve.
Jesus said: "Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy." Matthew 5:7
    In the likeness of God, as his dear children, he expects us also to be like him in showing mercy. We ought to be concerned for the eternal welfare of those around us. We ought to love and show mercy to the unlovable. We ought to be more ready to forgive and pardon than to seek revenge.
    God looks upon us as we are merciful to others, and pours out his mercy upon us accordingly. "Blessed are the merciful for they shalt receive mercy." Math 5:7

 What did Jesus say? - About hunger?

    Jesus said: "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled." Matthew 5:6.
    Those of us who have been "born again" into the family of God by the grace of God, through the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, still live in a heathen world full of sin and corruption. We are in the world, but not of the world. The banqueting table of this sinful world no longer nourishes us and we suffer from spiritual malnutrition, because the substance of the world cannot meet our spiritual needs. Once we have tasted and seen that the Lord is good, the sweetmeats of the world become bitter to us, and does not satisfy. We hunger, and long, and desire for something better than that which the world has to offer. We hunger and thirst for the table that God has promised to spread for us in the wilderness.
    Jesus told us that when we truly desire and hunger for the things of God and thirst for his righteousness we will be blessed and he will fill us. God our father will not allow his children to suffer.

Thought For Today - August 15 - What Did Jesus Say? - About Meekness?

Thought For Today - August 15
 What did Jesus say? - About meekness?

    What did Jesus say about meekness? Jesus said: "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." Matthew 5: 5.
    What does it mean to be meek? To be meek means to be submissive; to be humble; gentle, easily entreated.
    In our sin cursed world culture, meekness is sometimes considered weakness, where the world's philosophy is the survival of the fittest and strongest, and most aggressive; but Jesus taught otherwise. Jesus taught that meekness is strength and power, and will result in blessing from God.
    Meekness ought to be an outstanding attribute of a true child of God as he follows the example of Jesus.
    "He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth." Isaiah 53.7 Jesus said: "Take my yoke upon you and lean of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest for your souls." Matthew 11-29    An example of meekness is found in Moses who lead the children of Israel out of the bondage of Egypt, of whom it was said that he was the meekest man on earth. "(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men that were upon the face of the earth)" Numbers 12:3. Another example of meekness is Jesus who exhibited extreme meekness at his trial and crucifixion, yet he conquered the most formidable enemy of all, death itself, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father, waiting for the signal to come and reclaim the earth and its' inhabitants for the glory of God as king of kings and Lord of Lords.
Let us pray that we can be more like Jesus because he has told us that the meek will eventually inherit the earth.

Thought For Today - August 14 - What Did Jesus Say About Mourning ? ?

What did Jesus say? - About mourning?

To mourn means to feel sorry for..; to grieve for something or someone.
"It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men, and the living will lay it to his heart." Ecclesiastes 7:2.
    We can never be truly happy and blessed while we are feasting with the world in the pleasures of sin. There is pleasure in sin for a season. The temporary pleasures of sin come and go and in the end we are left empty and desolate, but when we come to the place in our life where we realize the consequences of being forever lost and separated from God, because "The wages of sin is death", we enter into the house of mourning, as it were, and when we truly feel sorry and grieve over our sinful condition and separation from God, and ask God's forgiveness, then we are blessed and comforted.
    When we mourn because of our sin, then God is there to lift us up, forgive us, and comfort us.
Jesus said: "Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4.

 What did Jesus say? - "Follow Me"

    Jesus came into the world to pay the debt owed to God the Father for all the individual sins of mankind. He offered himself as a sacrifice and a free gift of life to all who will receive him by faith. Jesus came to lead mankind to God the Father, and to lead them to Heaven. He came to give us life and that more abundantly. He came to be the master teacher of all, he who has all knowledge and wisdom, the way, the truth, and the light. He came to be the light of the world. To dispel the darkness of ignorance and sin.
    Jesus said: "Follow me, and I will make you fisher of men." Matthew 4:19.
Jesus was a fisher of men. He went after the lost souls of the human race. He promised his disciples, and through them he promised us that if they listened to and kept his teaching, and follow in his footsteps, that they too would become fishers of men. They would draw men and women, boys and girls to him through their lifestyle and testimony, and many would be saved.
    When Jesus left this world to return to the Father in Heaven, he left us with the great commission to go into the world and preach the gospel to all creatures. He wants his redeemed people to be fishers of men so that as many as will receive him can enjoy the blessings of salvation and eternal life.
Follow him faithfully and he will make you to become fishers of men and soul winners.
