John 3:16 Day

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."

Don't let today slip by without reflecting what was done for you. If you haven't made a decision to follow Jesus, today can be that day for you.

Don't be mislead that "love" and being "nice" is good enough. John tells us in God's Word that it is through Jesus that we can have that restored relationship with God.

Make today YOUR day!

My Light

Psalm 27:1 & 3 "The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? . . . Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident."

Life's troubles are so overwhelming at times they seem insurmountable. Our day to day activities and troubles preoccupy our every thought.   We become inwardly focused.  God tells us though that He is our light and salvation.  We can look to him for strength in tough times.

John 12:46 "I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness."

This world is dark as midnight; Jesus has come that by faith we may have light and may no longer sit in the gloom which covers all the rest of mankind.

"Whoever" is a very wide term: it means you and me. If we trust in Jesus we shall no more sit in the dark shadow of death but shall enter into the warm light of a day which shall never end. Why do we not come out into the light at once?

A cloud may sometimes hover over us, but we shall not abide in darkness if we believe in Jesus. He has come to give us broad daylight. Shall He come in vain.' If we have faith we have the privilege of sunlight: let us enjoy it. From the night of natural depravity, of ignorance, of doubt, of despair, of sin, of dread, Jesus has come to set us free; and all believers shall know that He no more comes in vain than the sun rises and fails to scatter his heat and light.

Shake off your depression. Abide not in the dark, but abide in the light. In Jesus is your hope, your joy, Your heaven, Look to Him, to Him only, and you will rejoice as the birds rejoice at sunrise and as the angels rejoice before the throne.

Starting Point

I got orders in hand today and my first two tasks assigned yesterday and today. I am at the starting point of this journey. Looks like this will be a very busy tour of duty. Paul said in Acts 26:19 the he "was not disobedient to the heavenly vision".  This is a great task that I've been assigned and will continue from the starting point assigned to the end, keeping true faith.
