A Way For Us

God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world. He sent Him so that the world would be saved. John 3:17

Most know John 3:16, but many do not know the next verse. It says that Jesus was not sent to tell us that we were all sinners. The 10 commandments reveal that to us already. We have all sinned. Instead, God sent Jesus as a remedy for our sinfulness by dying for us. He provided a way for all of us to be saved even though we did not deserve it nor could earn it.



It’s Not All About You

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Phil. 2:4
 
It is so easy to just be concerned with our own problems. We feel like we have to watch our for ourselves. The Bible, however, tells us to also be concerned for others. Let’s face it, it is easy to become selfish in today’s world. We have to fight that temptation and show care and concern for others. We should consider other’s needs in our decisions and actions. Contrary to what you may think, it is not all about you. OUCH!


Serve the Lord

If you don’t want to serve the Lord, you must choose for yourselves today whom you will serve…As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord. Josh. 24:15

God gives us a choice to serve Him or not. No one has to follow Him. But you do have to make a choice. You will serve one god or another. So which god have you chosen to worship? Joshua decided that He and his family would serve the Lord God. What choice have you made for you and your family?



Worries and Cares

Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares for you. I Pt. 5:7

With all that is going on, it is almost impossible to not worry. We don’t know what’s ahead. The good news (and there is ALWAYS good news) is that we can give all of our worries to God. We should turn them all over to Him because He cares for each one of us. He is not just a disinterested observer, watching the world spinning out of control. He is a loving Heavenly Father who is deeply concerned and cares about us. That means He takes care of us. So take to Him all of your worries and cares. He does care.
