John 13:34-35 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Point To Ponder: Our ability to love is often shaped by life’s experience of love! To have not experienced Love can hinder one from knowing what Godly Love is. When we humbly allow God to replace what we thought was love with His Love; we become a Living Vessel for His Love that flows......

Matthew 6:25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life-whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?” Point To Ponder: The “I” is Christ! He IS speaking (The Creator, Sustainer of Life); Can “Tell” (Inform-Notify-Enlighten) ‘you not’ (in arrogance, get ahead of Him) ‘to worry’ (Faith’s Enemy) ‘about everyday life’ (Today-Tomorrow-Eternity). Christ (The Faithful One) says ‘Life’ (Your Life-The life He died for) is more important than anything we worry about! If it......

John 7:37 “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.” Point To Ponder: Ever wonder why a nation supposedly founded on ‘In God We Trust’ has become so dry, divided, hateful & unforgiving? We, the people, have deliberately walked away from the Principles of God, trying to quench a thirst only God can satisfy. What happened to God’s people? We’ve allowed ‘right or left;’ our personal opinions become our gods! We think we can worship a Holy God any way we please! We can’t claim to be God’s child while......

Luke 18:1 “Jesus told His disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.” Point To Ponder: There is no reason, no matter the season to ever give up on God. Faithful & Persistent prayer is Powerful, not because we pray, it’s too Whom we are praying to. Prayer moves us towards the Sufficient Grace of God! It is He who is holding, keeping and sustaining us. Prayer should not be an emotionless routine, but a passion! Not half-needed; sheer necessity! Things may not always turn......

Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Point To Ponder: Life, God’s curriculum for growing our character to reflect Christ, presents no problems He, our Refuge, cannot handle. He Is our Help, Shelter, Sanctuary, Strength, Protection, and Provider! God Has No Weakness! God IS Always Available! When He Speaks, we listen! Where He leads, we Follow, He’s Glorified & we benefit! A clear memory of God’s past blessings keep us from panic in present-day problems. Psalm 121:2-3 “My help comes from the LORD, Who made......

John 15:16 “You did not choose Me, But I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit – fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in My name.” Point To Ponder: No one found Jesus as He was never lost. Jesus chose us for a reason; “To Go!” As we go “Bear Fruit.” As we ‘go’ plant the seed of The Gospel by sharing the Good News of a Living Savior! As we ‘go,’ ask in His Name and all that’s needed for us......

1 Corinthians 13:7a “bears all things.” Point To Ponder: In our relationships with God and one another, enduring Love Extends Grace! Grace, that unmerited favor is what God, who IS Love, extended too & gifted to us. “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” So, in our relationships, to be reflective of our Heavenly Father we choose to be gracious. Why make that choice? Grace listens! Grace allows for mistakes! Grace is......

Psalm 139:13-14 “For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and my soul knows very well.” Point To Ponder: Never think of yourself as less than or God can’t use you! Never think you came into existence by some cosmic explosion! It is an Awesome God, who formed your inward parts. It was God who Intelligently and Artistically organized your digestive, respiratory, circular, muscular and a host of other systems that are......

Psalm 13:1 “How long, O Lord? Point To Ponder: Most things are endurable if we know relief is coming soon. Yet when we have no idea when our circumstance will have a resolution, it can be overwhelming, discouraging & painful. In our trial, remember, it’s not about us; however; ‘It IS’ for us & God’s Glory. So, don’t react in anger or withdrawal. Don’t give up on God as the Cross reminds us, He never gave up on us! While in the trial, learn something about God you would not have known......

1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing.” Point To Ponder: Most, including myself, never leave home without their Cell Phone. We come unglued, overcome with panic with a sense of helplessness if our Cell Phone is lost, left at home or if wireless network is not available. Reread this passage; “Pray without ceasing.” Message: Prayer is God’s concept, not ours! He desires to hear from His children. He is always available! Prayer is wireless with no dead spots! Wherever you are, prayer provides immediate access to God with no roaming fee! Come on......
