God can do great things if we will just but keep our eyes on Him. He will even help us when we fall short.

The disciples got it right. So should we.

“Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man; but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.” (Matthew 15:11 AKJV)

Thursday, November 23, 2017
“Why if your hand or your foot offend you, cut them off, and cast them from you: it is better for you to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.” (Matthew 18:8 AKJV)

Hell is a terrible eternal place. Jesus came to save us from Hell. Put your faith in Him.

God will take care of His own. Have faith in God.

Wednesday, December 6, 2017
“For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and you, when you had seen it, repented not afterward, that you might believe him.” (Matthew 21:32 AKJV)

It is sometimes surprising to see who is most receptive to message of God.
 
Thursday, December 7, 2017
“I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” (Matthew 22:32 AKJV)

Christians believe in Jesus and the resurrection to eternal life in Heaven.

Sunday, October 1, 2017
“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:” (Matthew 6:14 AKJV)

We forgive because the Lord has forgiven us.
 
Monday, October 2, 2017
“And Lot went out, and spoke to his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked to his sons in law.” (Genesis 19:14 AKJV)

Don’t treat God’s Word lightly. He means what He says.

Monday, October 9, 2017
“Or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull out the mote out of your eye; and, behold, a beam is in your own eye?” (Matthew 7:4 AKJV)

Are you proud to profess your faith in Jesus as your Lord?

Friday, October 27, 2017
“And he that takes not his cross, and follows after me, is not worthy of me.” (Matthew 10:38 AKJV)

Are we willing to count the cost to follow Jesus? He died for us. We should live for Him.

Saturday, October 28, 2017

“The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good.” (Psalms 14:1 AKJV)

Don’t be foolish. Look around you. God created and sustains the universe. This is no accident.

Monday, October 30, 2017
“He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathers not with me scatters abroad.” (Matthew 12:30 AKJV)

There is no middle ground with Jesus. Where do you stand?

Tuesday, October 31, 2017
“But I say to you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.” (Matthew 12:36 AKJV)

We probably sin much more with our words than we do with our actions. No wonder we need the grace and forgiveness of the Lord.

“A son honors his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is my honor? and if I be a master, where is my fear? said the LORD of hosts to you, O priests, that despise my name. And you say, Wherein have we despised your name?” (Malachi 1:6 AKJV)

We need good old-fashioned respect and reverence for God in our day too.

Monday, August 28, 2017
“For the LORD, the God of Israel, said that he hates putting away: for one covers violence with his garment, said the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that you deal not treacherously.” (Malachi 2:16 AKJV)

Putting away refers to divorce. God wants healthy homes filled with commitment and love.

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Unfortunately we live in such a day today. Lord, help us.

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

“Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed me. But you say, Wherein have we robbed you? In tithes and offerings.” (Malachi 3:8 AKJV)

The tithe, a tenth, belongs to God. Don’t rob God.

Sunday, September 3, 2017
“Bring you all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in my house, and prove me now herewith, said the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” (Malachi 3:10 AKJV)

Thursday, September 7, 2017
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” (Genesis 1:27 AKJV)

Friday, September 8, 2017
“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.” (Genesis 2:16-17 AKJV)

Sin is disobeying God. Adam and Eve disobeyed and we are all still paying the consequences.

Saturday, September 9, 2017
“And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21 AKJV)

We would be wise to give our best to Jesus.

“Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, Yes, has God said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” (Genesis 3:1 AKJV)

The devil is still trying to get people to doubt the Word of God. Don’t be fooled. The devil is a liar.

Wednesday, September 13, 2017
“And he said, I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.” (Genesis 3:10 AKJV)

We too should be afraid when we disobey God. He is holy. However, He is able to forgive and cleanse if we repent of sin.

Thursday, September 14, 2017
“But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said to them, O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” (Matthew 3:7 AKJV)

We should not forget that God will one day judge us. Flee the wrath of God and come to Jesus and be saved.

Friday, September 15, 2017
“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4 AKJV)

Feed yourself spiritually. Read your Bible.

Saturday, September 16, 2017

“And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3 AKJV)

Tuesday, September 19, 2017
“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6 AKJV)

What a wonderful promise! Let’s all act on this promise.

Wednesday, September 20, 2017
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16 AKJV)

Monday, September 25, 2017
“Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom. But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.” (Genesis 13:12-13 AKJV)
