Luke 22:46 “. . . Why sleep ye? Rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.” Point To Ponder: Children of God ARISE! Let us not sleepwalk through life complaining as we go! Wake up to schemes of the tempter which are designed to separate and mar the image of God. Wake up from our own negative thinking; my way is the only way and realize Christ Is The Only Way! Wake up from thinking we can’t do when we’ve been empowered to do! Through God’s Word let us arm ourselves. We......

Micah 6:8 “What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Point To Ponder: God requires we love as He Loves! Act justly by seeing Christ did not die for a particular party nor race as there is but one race: the human race! None is better than the other. ALL have sinned! Christ died for the sins of ALL mankind. God’s Mercy provided you & me with His unmerited favor. God’s Grace provided what we didn’t deserve: A Savior!......

John 13:34 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” Point To Ponder: We are limited; therefore, our love is limited. God Is Love, therefore, His love is unlimited, unfailing & unconditional! We love people & things that benefit us. There is no extra love in us for folk that cause us pain or ask us to be forgiving! To humbly present ourselves as a ‘living sacrifice’ to God is giving our limited love to God; humbly......

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: Christ redeemed us for a reason. “To Go and Bear Fruit!” As we go, wherever we go, share the Good News of a Living Savior; not only in word but how we live in this world that has surely forgotten God. As we go, ask in Jesus’ Name and all that is needed......

Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow.” Point To Ponder: It is not that we can’t reason; God blessed us with the ability to reason. In man’s arrogance, man has reasoned himself out of a sound mind and has forgotten God. Now “reason” what God can do with a life humbly turned over to Him. That is our reasonable service TO Him for the mercies received FROM Him! Let the Redeemer have His way with......

1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you.” Point To Ponder: ‘Casting all your care’ is humbly choosing to throw all cares upon God with no attempt at taking anything back! It’s leaving every detail, every event, every thought, even the things we add to our plate God didn’t place there, in His Wise, Gracious and Capable Hand. It’s faithful expectation that Faithful God hears our humble cry AND bye & bye, He will answer His child’s cry! Why? “He cares for you.” It was never......

Psalm 92:1 “It is good to praise you, Lord. It is good to tell of your love in the morning and of your loyalty at night.” Point To Ponder: We are God’s possession! We were made in God’s Image & Likeness. We went astray without cause. Now we’ve been redeemed by the Blood of Christ although unworthy. So, by reason of the unfailing, unconditional Love of God ALL praise is to be attributed to God! While we praise God, it’s good to share His Love & Loyalty. His Love woke us this......

Psalm 24:3-4 “Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false.” Point To Ponder: Obedience agrees with God that one has sinned. Obedience turns (first) TO God AND away from sin. Obedience recognizes one is in need of being cleansed, and only God can do the cleaning. Obedience humbly submits to God and worships only God. Obedience to God displaces a puffed-up soul; having no need to swear......
