What do you think? We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
Whatever our hands touch... we leave fingerprints. On walls, on furniture,on door knobs, dishes and books. As we touch we leave our identity. Oh please where ever I go today...help me leave heartprints Heartprints of compassion,understanding and love. Heartprints of kindness and genuine concern. May my heart touch a lonely neighbor...or a runaway daughter...or an anxious mother...or perhaps a dear friend! I shall go out today...to leave heartprints... and if some one should say... "I felt your touch"May that one sense be... your loving touch through me!"
Hi everyone. My name is Kristin and I am a mom of 2 of the most wonderful children on the planet. I am wife to a brilliant man who loves me like crazy♥ I just turned 40 and thought it's time to start making my life about what's relevant and deleting what is not important. I think so many times we run around in circles doing things that carry no eternal weight. Time to live with a purpose. Jeremiah 29:11 says For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back from captivity.I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile."
A New Life copyright Millie Plastaras7/1/2008 What happens to a person once they become a Christian by accepting the atonement of Jesus Christ? By repentingof their sins and receiving him as their Savior? Should we see a difference?Should we be thinking differently?Should we act differently?What kinds of friends should we choose? Paul wrote this in Romans 12:1-2 I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in viewof all the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedicationof your bodies -- presenting all your members and faculties -- as aliving sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasingto God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent)service and spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world -- this age, fashioned afterand adapted to its external, superficial customs. But betransformed (changed) by the (entire) renewal of your mind -- byits new ideals and new attitude -- so that you may prove(for yourselves) what is the good and acceptable and perfectwill of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect in his sight for you. We have a new life in Christ! So we are to be transformed. New thinking, new people,new focus, new goals. We are no longer our own,we are bought with a price, the blood of the risen Lamb,shed for you and me that we might have salvation and eternal life. This great sacrifice deserves nothingbut our greatest attention and highest goals. We are tobe Christlike, in all we say and do. 1 Peter 2:11-12 shows us one of the vital reasonswe must persist in our new life in Christ. Dear friends, you are like foreigners and strangers inthis world. I beg you to avoid the evil things your bodies want to do that fight against your soul. People whodo not believe are living all around you and might say that youare doing wrong. Live such good lives that they will seegood things you do and will give glory to God on theday when Christ comes again. Is your life a testimony to the transforming power of Christ?If you are falling short, if you have not surrendered parts ofyourself, then today is a new day. Get on your knees andask God to forgive you and help you be a light to the world,transforming, strong in His Word and His power, and a joyto those who meet you. We have work to do, we cannotbe self focused, selfish, or carnal (worldly minded) in ourthinking. We are God's children now. Seek that whichis good and rebuke that which is evil. Dear God, I ask you today to help us be honest about our shortcomings.Help us to see what we need to change and to do it, to havea desire to please you and be Godly in our lives. We only have this one life, let us make it count for you, and for all thesouls that are lost and need you. That we may be a light shiningwith your glory, and full of your word that we may tell everyonethe good news of Jesus Christ. That you loved us so muchyou sent your son to die for our sins. How we praise you and give you glory. Help us to be allyou would have us to be. Help us to change one step at a time,one day at a time. To lay aside our selfish desires, and seek your desire in all we say and do. In Jesus precious name,amen When you do things, do not let selfishness or pride be your guide. Instead, be humble and give more honorto others than yourselves. Do not be interested only inyour own life, but also be interested in the lives of others.In your lives you must think and act like Jesus Christ.Philippians 2:3-5 Remember others are watching you, and their soulmay depend on the example you set. Only one life will soon be pastOnly what is done for Christ will last. lovemillie Click here: Millie's Inspirations http://millies-inspirations.blogspot.com/ When you reach the end of your rope you will find the hem of His garment. I have often felt that many things that bring us to our knees,teach us while we are down there to learn to pray.
These possibilities are open to everyone. Don't tell God you are not good enough, do what He asks.Don't tell God to send someone else, He asked you.Don't tell God you don't have time to pray, He said seek me first.Don't neglect the things of God. He said we are topick up His cross daily and follow Him. Don't tell God anything is bigger than His ability.God is the Great I Am, I am whatever you need. There is no pit so deep, God's love is not deeper still. Not my will but thine oh Lord. ´°`·.,¸¸,.·´°`·.,¸¸,.·´°`·.,¸¸,.·°°´·.,¸¸,.·´°`·.,¸¸,.·´°`·.,¸¸,.·´° Happy moments, praise God.
