JOHN & ACTS
|This morning I will have but a little time to type in my blog. We had a great meeting with Dr. Clarence Sexton last night. What a blessing! He was mightily used of God and I enjoyed so much hearing him preach and talk to our staff afterwards. I am very much looking forward to this morning and this evening.|
I read in John and Acts, and here are just a few thoughts:
1) HAPPY CHRISTIANS- John 20:20 says: "Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the LORD." If we will spend time with Jesus everyday, then we can be glad as well. Happy Christians are those who focus on Jesus! He is the reason and the source of our happiness!
2) SENT TO BLESS US! Acts 3:26 says: "Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities." Jesus came to bless us by taking away our sins. We also are sent by Him to be a blessing to others. We bless others by telling them of Jesus and loving them like Jesus would love them and does! WE too were "sent to bless".
3) HEARING AND SEEING- Acts 8:6 says: "And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did." We are to share the Gospel, but people are to see us live the Gospel as well. They must see what they hear! Our lives give the credence to our message! Let us give the world someone to see and listen too!
Well, just three short thoughts for today. Have a blessed day! Pastor Mike Mutchler
