Spirituality vs. Jesus

I was reading this at   Written by Stephen Altrogge, a really good reminder and truth....especially in a society that tells us that we are all gods and you need to look within ourselves to find it! Thanks Stephen for posting this! Awesome.....and great reminder why Jesus is my life............. my all. Spirituality invites you to explore your inner self. Jesus invites you to explore his glory and forget yourself. Spirituality invites you to find yourself. Jesus invites you to lose yourself. Spirituality is a journey that ultimately results in you “saving” yourself. Following Jesus is a journey that begins when you stop trying to save yourself. Spirituality leads to self-expression which results in self-fulfillment. Jesus calls you to die to yourself and find your fulfillment in him. Spirituality begins when you resolve to “try harder”. Following Jesus begins when you give up. Spirituality says you’re worth it. Jesus says that he’s worth it. Spir

A Word of Comfort

A Word of Comfort 1 Thess 4:13-18 Paul is one of the greatest comforter's ever to live! I say that, because he is so straight forward and he cares deeply about the family of God. His spiritual children.....The apostle Paul is a great example for each and every one us...especially when it come to the issue of what we are going to look at today!! What happens when a Christian dies?  A topic that the apostle Paul, knew all to well! Since he faced it himself, on a daily basic....This topic in this young vibrant church, was causing many to have misunderstanding to the issue of life after death!! Do you realize that there is a 100% chance that you will die at some point in this life? There is approximately 150 000 people who die each and every day around the globe!!! Death is a very serious matter for every one of us. Why? Because we all are going to face it at some time point in our life. This was the problem with this early church.......they thought the time was coming (the Rapture

Why Not Me?

WHY NOT ME AND YOU?                           1 Thess 3:1-10 Do you ever sit down and ponder the question why me LORD? Why Lord! Do you allow so much pain and suffering in your children around the world. Why Lord! Do you allow me to go through despair from time to time? Why Lord! Do you put me through such pain and anguish with the people around me? Why Lord! Why?............You know! There is no easy answer to anyone of those questions. Except! Why not me ? The Apostle is a great example of suffering and trials. Paul knew that trials and tribulations where part in parcel to the Christian life. The Apostle Paul knew that there was no escaping this! Why? Because Jesus said "....... I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” Matt 10:16.....Jesus also said  “Remember the word that I said to you, 'A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you......” John 15:20. P

How to Lose a Child Before He is Five Years Old

The following is edited and adapted from a message preached by the late J. B. Buffington (1923-2009) at Calvary Baptist Church, Lakeland, Florida, in the early 1970s. Rearing a family ought to be a thing of joy. You ought to sit down at home and laugh about all the little things that happen. You ought to be happy. I can talk about teenagers because I have had four of them. My youngest daughter is 23 years old, so I know a little bit about teenagers. I’ve heard people say, “Everything went along alright until my children became teenagers and then something happened.” But I beg your pardon, that’s not the case. Most of it happened before five years old. That’s why I exhort mothers, “Don’t let anybody be a baby sitter of your children except you and other godly people.” Those first five years, attitudes, security, goals, and many other things are already developed, and they will come into full blossom in teenage years. A child is like a computer. What you put in comes out. You can put som

The Rebel.....Now Your Child

"But when he came to himself, he said, 'How many of my father's hired servants have more than enough bread, but I perish here with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants."' And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him." Luke 15:17-20 (ESV)   THAT'S GRACE!! Because earlier in this same letter Luke writes "Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents." Luke 15:10 (ESV). To Him be the glory for giving us such a merciful salvation through His only Begotten Son...........Jesus Christ my Lord.
