Dress For Success

“But when the king came in to look over the dinner guests, he saw a man there who was not dressed in wedding clothes, and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes?’ And the man was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ For many are called, but few are chosen.” Mt 22: 11-14

When you have an interview for a dream job, you dress in such a way as to bring attention to yourself for the purpose of scoring that job. When you have a date with the one you’ve been dreaming about, you dress a certain way so as to get another date. When you are playing a team sport, you dress a certain way that says you belong to that team. There are many sayings covering the topic of dressing for success. The way you dress yourself shows others a lot about you. Your appearance could tell people you are ready for whatever the day wants to throw your way or it could tell people you could care less what happens with your life. There is an importance attached to the way we carry ourselves in the physical world, how much more does that apply in the spiritual world?

Aside from this parable of the marriage feast, Jesus makes it clear to us that we need to take good care of our soul! He warns us to be alert since we don’t know when the Master will return. “Be dressed in readiness and keep your lamps lit”! (Luke 12:35) He also shows through the parable of the ten bridesmaids the difference between those who clothe their soul properly versus those that don’t. The comparison is jaw dropping! Those who kept their lamps lit were ready for the bridegroom, but those who didn’t were shut out of the wedding, completely!

We Need Him!

zThe woman had fallen and couldn’t get up (sorry I couldn’t resist).  She was all by herself but had a medical alarm, which she pressed, and we were there to help her a few minutes later.

She really didn’t want to go with us to the hospital but after an assessment and some conversation she agreed that it would be a good idea for her to go so that she could get her hip checked.  It was hurting from the fall.

Child of the world – Be informed – 3

Australia and Britain are on heightened terror alert and even Saudi Arabia’s king warned that the West will be the next target of the militants sweeping through Syria and Iraq unless there is rapid action.

Nuggets – Trust in the Lord

Trust in the Lord
“Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.” (Psalm 37:3)

Sprinkled throughout this psalm are various pictures that provide the assurance of God’s victory—not only in His eternal plan, but also in and through the lives of His precious saints.

Trust is the most basic of the characteristics of our relationship with the Lord and sets the foundation for all the rest. The Hebrew word carries the meaning of confidence, or boldness, and is often used in such a way that it would imply that we are to “gain support” and “lean on” the One in whom we trust. The expanded definition of trust is contained in Proverbs: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones” (Proverbs 3:5-8).

But merely having great confidence in the God of creation is not enough. We must “do good” (our text). The entire New Testament book of James is devoted to this theme: “Faith without works is dead” (James 2:20). “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46). “O that there were such an heart in them,” God told Moses, “that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!” (Deuteronomy 5:29).

If we would enjoy the blessings of God, we must embrace the plan of God. If we are to expect the promise that we will “dwell” and “be fed,” then we must submit to the instructions of our Lord, who told us to “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

HE LIFTS US UP: Teenage Love

Teenage Love…
many teens think it’s a must!
But unfortunately…
it only leads to teenage lust.
In a desire to “fit in”…
many teens actually give in…
negating parental teaching…
  giving in to lustful sin.
Partying, drinking…
and revealing fashions…
as teens try to find themselves…
  getting lost in moments of passion.
For as they experiment
with new adventures in life…
they falter and flounder…
only opening doors for more strife.
As these young teens
drop their standards that were set…
they begin experimenting
with things that they will regret. Continue reading

Nuggets – The Three Appearings of Christ

The Three Appearings of Christ
“For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.” (Hebrews 9:24)

Although we usually think in terms of two appearances of Christ, once at His first coming and again at His second coming, the ninth chapter of Hebrews specifically refers to three “appearings,” each involving a different Greek word. With reference to His first appearing, we read: “Now once in the end of the [age] hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself” (v. 26). The word used here means “to make manifest.” It is the word used in 1 John 3:5: “He was manifested to take away our sins.”

His second coming is the topic in Hebrews 9:28, where the word means to show oneself visibly. “Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”
