Good morning folks,
Jackie and I are headed off to do some wilderness camping. I'm sending out the Verse for Today for Monday through Wednesday early.

This is a bit of a continuation of the Verse for Today posted recently. Recently we mentioned that we are to be lights. Light in a dark world. In Matthew 5:14-15 we see that we (God's saved people) are indeed the light of the world. Just like a city on a hill we need to remain visible to the world and shine our light on the world.

14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. Matthew 5:14-15 ESV.

I would also add that we are to be ready at all times to share the hope that we have in Christ Jesus. They go hand in hand.

May each of you shine brightly!

Be blessed, be a blessing,



Good morning folks,
We all want to have our hard work recognized. Locally here in Colorado we have a number of Mennonite families. Some of the men work in the construction industry. The work those guys do is exemplary. Very good work. Noticeably good. The reason for that is because they take these verses quite seriously.  They do their work as if it's for God and not for man. They literally use work as a ministry.
If you want to get recognition for your work try working as if for God and not for man.
Verse 25 below also tells us to treat others as you would if God were looking over your shoulder... He is!

23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.25 Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.  Colossians 3:23-25 NIV

Be blessed, Be a blessing,



Good morning folks,
I heard some facts recently I find disturbing. It involves the ancient city of Pompeii. This city was buried in volcanic ash from an eruption in 79 AD. Many people died, perhaps thousands. There have been bodies discovered after these 2000 years that have been preserved by the ash and look like plaster casts. Two of them are locked in a kiss upon death. It was long thought that they were both young maidens, and were long called the kissing maidens. Now DNA and other tests tell the real story. they are both men. There have been other discoveries of gay drawings on some of the uncovered walls. This was an ancient Roman city and it is now popular belief that this was a more modern Sodom and Gomorrah event. I am not pretending to know. You can study this for yourselves online. I'm just saying that it is interesting and it fits my Christian worldview.
I do not believe America's pushing of the gay life-style and gay marriage will go unpunished. I see it all as signs of the end-times. I know I'm not alone...

But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.
You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober.For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night.But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:4-11 NIV

The times we are in are seriously anti-God. We, who are of the bride of Christ, know this. It causes us to pray for the lost even more and it causes us to lean more on God's word and to be bold as we proclaim the way of the Lord. I believe the gay lifestyle will be the undoing of America. Another nail in her coffin so to speak.
The verses today tell us God did not appoint us to wrath. We will be removed from this wrath. This is why I believe we will be raptured prior to the tribulation (even though I don't argue this point).
This Scripture also reminds us and encourages us that we will be with Christ... forever!
For the followers of Jesus there is a happy ending!

We serve an AWESOME God!

Be blessed, be a blessing,
