If the Resurrection is True

Consider this…

If the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is true;

  1. There is a God
  2. Jesus is that God
  3. The bible is true
  4. Heaven and Hell are real

If you have not asked Jesus to forgive you of your sin and welcomed him in your heart, where will you be when he returns?

Don’t wait!

He is risen!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday. I look forward to Easter even more than Christmas!

Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the day when death took a back seat, and life became joyful!

Happy Easter everyone!

What does God know?

Your friends know you to some degree, right? Your family members, brothers and sisters and your husband or wife,  know even more. There are some things that are hidden deep within you and yet God knows you deep within. He knows the things nobody else knows.

Despite the thoughts we have, good or bad, God loves us. In fact, He loves us so much that he was willing to leave his heavenly throne to become a sacrifice for our sins. His love for us was seen in his willingness to bear the forty lashes, minus one. You can see his love in the way he remained humble despite the cruel words spoken to and about him as he paid for our sins on the cross.

I am reminded of his love every time I see a telephone pole, like the one I noticed this week in the parking lot at work.

You may think it strange, but His Spirit living in the heart of every believer reminds us that He is always present, no matter where we are. Praise God!

Today, your thoughts may be wandering, even causing you to wonder if he knows the painful trials you are facing. Be assured…He knows and is available to you if you would ask for his help.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.  (1 John 5:14‭-‬15 NIV)

If you are not sure if something is God’s will, consider this; as long as it does not go against what the bible says, or what Jesus would say, it is likely within the will of God.

Friends, God wants you to know that He knows your every need and desire and loves you. If we would call on his name and ask for his help, he will provide.

Please feel free to contact me if I can pray for you in any way.

May God richly bless you this day!

What do we spend our time and money on?

Recently, I attended a wake and what came to mind is how we spend so much time with a person after life on earth is over. Why don’t we invest in our relationships whIle they are here?

We send cards and flowers to the funeral home after life, but did we show our appreciation for the person who passed when we had them with us?

Think about all the money that is spent on a casket, burial and plot. How much time and money did we spend planning where and who we would spend eternity with?

Imagine how wonderful it would be if we showed our respects and shared our faith with people before its too late.

Who do you know that would love a visit? Bring some flowers and share your favorite scripture and talk about your desire to be together after this life is passed.

Lord, help us to see where our values need changing and help us take time to visit our friends and loved ones while we can. In Jesus name. Amen

Happy Thanksgiving 

Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good; his love endures forever.

Christmas before technology was born!

Right now you are either holding a cell phone in your hand, or a tablet, or using a computer of some sort. We could not imagine life without it, especially once black Friday arrives.

Technology has made a lot of things simpler,  but can you imagine a time when there was no internet? A time when communicating was done over a phone line or in person? It required more effort on our part, but it showed our interest in other people. 
That is the kind of Christmas I am looking forward to this year. I don’t really care about what’s under the tree, but who took my place on that tree in Calvary over 2000 years ago. 

The gift that God gave us is better than anything we could find at Amazon or Bestbuy.com. It requires no user manual or batteries and it truly is the gift that keeps on giving!

Jesus Christ took the penalty for your sin and mine, and in return offered us life everlasting in a place where there is no hatred or greed, no pain and no luster for more! 

Have you accepted his incredible gift? 

If not, I would love to help you come to faith in the Son of God.Connect with me and let’s talk.

Make this the Christmas you will never forget!

Blessings,

Nick

Hidden in Your Heart

Your heart is very precious. It is that secret place where you store your memories and desires and thoughts.
Noone knows what’s in your heart, but it can be seen through your actions. If you store up what is good, you will do good things. Evil actions are the result of impure, immoral thoughts in your heart.

“Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45)

Whether you say you believe in God or not, He knows what is in your heart. Everything is unhidden and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give an account.

Therefore, let’s fill our hearts with what is good and pure, and get rid of lying, adultery and all that is evil.Nick
