Help In Hurtful Times

If I asked you who Peter was, what would you say? Would you mention walking on the water? Maybe you would speak about his denial of Jesus. Quite possibly, you even may talk about the Mount of Transfiguration. While there are several responses that fit and are true, most noteworthy, he is a disciple of Jesus Christ. He lived his life as a profound professor of the faith after the Resurrection.

    What Is "It"?

    The word "it" can mean a lot of different things. You can use the word "it" to describe anything from a tangible object, to an idea. In 1 Peter, we see what the word "it" refers to. "It" is powerful and something that the most of the world struggles to grasp and understand. However, "it" is something believers in Jesus Christ have planted in their soul. The Holy Spirit shows us lovingly what this big idea is, and blesses us with its definition for us to show and share with others.

    The Subject Everyone Ignores

    In Luke 16, we witness the parable of the rich man and Lazarus unfold. As Jesus shows us through this parable, there are is a central theme that we cannot afford to ignore - salvation. Even though his life was difficult, Lazarus, because of his faith, experienced comfort with God after he died. The rich man, who did not have the saving relationship with God that Lazarus did, experienced something else - the torment of Hell. While this may be a hard message for us to hear, it is one that is important. Furthermore, it is one we must spread, and that others cannot afford to ignore.

    Methuselah's Faith

    Special Grandparent's Day Message - In Genesis Chapter 5, a man by the name of Methuselah is mentioned. While the bible doesn't tell us much about who he was, one can see his faith. Enoch his father, walked with God. His grandson, Noah, found grace in the eyes of the Lord, and was saved from the flood. Just from those two people, one may be able to see who this man was. No doubt, he had a Godly faith that influenced his children and grandchildren. As parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents, we should strive to have a lasting faith. A faith that is one that will influence generations to come.

    5 Things About a Good Father

    There are all types of fathers in the world; some good and others that may not be so good. In Luke 15, Jesus addresses what a good father is. By speaking through the Parable of the Prodigal Son, we find some specific "good father" characteristics.  Most importantly, we find that the traits present in the Prodigal's father are traits of our Heavenly Father as well.

    Two Rebels Under One Roof

    The Prodigal son - we all know the parable, but have we ever thought it through? In Luke 15, we learn about not only the son that took his inheritance and left, but also the one who stayed behind. One was an outward sinner whom spent his inheritance on loose living, and one an inward, self-righteous Pharisee. Both went against their father's will for them; but left us a lesson about being a rebel.
     
    Let's pick back up in Luke chapter 15, for this week's message from Brother Gifford entitled - "Two Rebels Under One Roof."

    How To Make The Angels Rejoice

    In Luke 15, Jesus uses parables to show how He seeks the lost, and rejoices when He finds them. Furthermore, we learn that the Angels in Heaven rejoice over that one sinner who repents. But that isn't the only truth that we learn. We also find out through this example how we should act toward the lost and the world around us.

    Straight Talk for Saints and Sinners

    In the thirteenth chapter of Luke, Jesus expounds upon what the Kingdom of God is like. It is like a small  mustard seed that grows into a large tree, as well as something like leaven that spreads to the whole measure of dough.
     
    Just like an athlete strives to win a race, Jesus reminds us all - saints and sinners alike - to strive to enter into the Kingdom. Jesus also makes it clear that there is only one way to enter that not everyone will enter into His Kingdom. How does one enter? Through the narrow gate - the blood of Christ.

    Be Ready for the Future

    Where does Jesus find the church when he comes? What will we be doing? Will we be joyful? Welcoming? Ready for Him? In Luke, Jesus tells us to be like men who are waiting for their master, and whom open immediately when their master knocks. In order for us to have this type of readiness, one must keep ready for Him, and do work for the Kingdom.

    What A Difference Jesus Makes

     
    In the 13th chapter of Luke, we witness the difference that Jesus makes as He speaks and brings truth. Using the parable of the fig tree with no fruit, as well as the woman that had, what the Scripture calls, a disabling spirit for 18 years, we learn that Jesus can make a difference, and straighten out what sin has bent. The results are nothing short of glorious.
