Daily Service: Let there be Light

Daily Service: Let there be Light

It took me a while to locate the lyrics and video for this song because it starts with a traditional Christmas Song that leads into this. What drove me was the Genesis (origin) passage: Genesis 1:3 (KJV) And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Star of wonder, star of might
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light

From the beginning the Father
Had a magnificent plan
Revealed through the law and the prophets
To fulfill the redemption of man

You spoke after centuries of silence
In the midst of a still, starry night
And Emmanuel came down among us
And the Father said,? Let there be light?

Let there be light, let it shine bright
Piercing the darkness with dazzling white
Hope for the hopeless was born on that night
When God sent His Son and said, Let there be light?
Let there be light

People who walked in great darkness
Gathered from near and afar
Shepherds with flocks in their keeping
Three kings who follow a star

Together the poor and the richest
Witness that Bethlehem night
And the sky full of Angels announcing
The birth of a glorious light

Let there be light, let it shine bright
Piercing the darkness with dazzling white
Hope for the hopeless was born on that night
When God sent His Son and said, Let there be light?
Let there be light

Daily Service: Seek Understanding

Daily Service: Seek Understanding

Proverbs 9:6 (ESV) Leave your simple ways, and live, and walk in the way of insight.” [Proverbs 1:4,9:11, 23:4]

Throughout Proverbs and some of the Psalms the writers at God’s urging tell us to seek wisdom.  There is also a reference in the gospels about finding a pearl of great price. The implication there as well as here is that seeking God is the beginning of wisdom. So without God, no man can be truly wise.

God calls us to _____?

Does God call you to judge the world? Or does God tell you that he loves the whole world the same way He loves you?  What is is your job as a Christian in a lost fallen world? I’m not saying that we don’t call sin what it is but that isn’t the point. We show God’s love for us in the way we treat others.

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

John 3:18 English Standard Version
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

2 Peter 3:9 ESV English Standard Version
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

God Loves YOU!

From Daily Service Volume 2

GOD LOVES YOU!

 You’ve probably heard this before, maybe even here within the past few weeks, but God laid this burden on my heart tonight as I was driving home with my wife.

God Loves you. God laid down his life in place of yours. God loves you so much and He knows everything, and He loves you anyway.

God is not willing that any should perish but have everlasting life.

But you should read the rest of the passage after the oft quoted John 3:16. It says that you must believe (action verb) in order to be saved. Basic faith gives us all the ability to believe in Christ and act on that knowledge. What then? What do you do after you believe?

Repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus and you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

And if you did all that start walking with God. If you don’t see your life undergoing a change as you walk in the presence of God, you might have missed something. If your faith in Christ does not radically change your world view you are definitely missing something.

Prayer, fellowship, Bible Study should make you hungry for more.

Ref: John 3:16-19, 2 Peter 3:9, Acts 2:38-39

Lost without God

I was just wondering as I reread my Holiday Blues post.  Do you think in general people that commit suicide over the holidays simply lack the knowledge that God Loves them?

To clarify, if you read the post I have dear close Christian friends that recognize those blues because they’ve been there.  And more to the point, they knew that only relying on God would bring them through it.

Look around you this season and see if you can give someone some hope.  I invite all of you to join me at the church I attend.

Daily Service: Fathers

DAY 82

Fathers

Dads, can God say this about you?

Genesis 18:19 NKJV
For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the LORD, to do righteousness and justice, that the LORD may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.”

God placed man at the head of the household.  You Dad must lead by example. In prayer, in Bible study, in fellowship, in church.  Your kids will follow your example, make no mistake about that.  But I have to look at myself first and say, “What am I communicating to my kids?”

1 John 2:13-15 (AMP)
I am writing to you, fathers, because you have come to know (recognize, be aware of, and understand) Him Who [has existed] from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have been victorious over the wicked [one]. I write to you, boys (lads), because you have come to know (recognize and be aware) of the Father.
I write to you, fathers, because you have come to know (recognize, be conscious of, and understand) Him Who [has existed] from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong and vigorous, and the Word of God is [always] abiding in you (in your hearts), and you have been victorious over the wicked one.
Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him.

Colossians 3:17-20 (AMP)
And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in [dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him.  Wives, be subject to your husbands [subordinate and adapt yourselves to them], as is right and fitting and your proper duty in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives [be affectionate and sympathetic with them] and do not be harsh or bitter or resentful toward them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this is pleasing to the Lord.
