In the Beginning God…

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Matthew 1:21.

Paul wrote: It was “not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior; that being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:5-7

Take Time to Remember

As you begin your Lord’s Day preparation, take time to remember that Name that is above every name—the Name of Jesus. A heavenly messenger instructed Joseph and Mary to name the first and only one born from heaven—JESUS. His name means Savior and/or Deliverer. As you speak out or sing out His Name, do so with your deepest and most sincere worship. Peter said, “There is no other Name, under heaven, whereby we must (and can) be saved.” According to Paul’s words to Titus all that we need in this life, every blessing that brings life and peace with God comes through Jesus Christ our Savior. Through the sacrifice of Jesus, the mercy of God has been extended to us. We are saved through Him. Our sins are washed away through Him. The renewing of the Holy Ghost is through Him. We are justified by His grace through Him. We are made the heirs of God through Him, and we have the hope of eternal life through Him.

His Name is JESUS. Speak His name with reverence, love and joy. He is the Savior of the world. All can be saved who will believe His Name. In the words of a preacher friend of mine: CALL HIS NAME JESUS! AMEN, AMEN AND AMEN!

Rewind Your Brain

Do you worry about anything and everything? Do you expect bad things to happen to you? Do you listen to the doubters, skeptics and unbelievers more than you listen to God? If you answered yes to any one of these questions you need to stop, rewind your brain all the way back to the time that you knelt in prayer, confessed your sins and received Christ into your heart; because at that moment in time you knew that God had forgiven you and that He would bless and keep you.

I Will

Throughout the Bible God gives us His promises and relates them to us by saying “I will” do this or that and most of the time they come with the condition by The Lord saying, “if” we will keep His Word and be obedient. In the Psalms the writer states, “I will,” do such and such but never seems to put a condition on God. We are to do what is right even when God does not bless us for doing so, don’t you think?

It’s Not All “Hunky-Dory”

If you read on in this Psalm you will find that not all was hunky-dory will David. As usual he was facing some enemy and he was pleading his cause before the LORD. But in the midst of his trials, he was determined to praise and worship the LORD.
