Please Post Your Comments at the end of the article.  We appreciate your thoughts on this article.

We would ask you to pray about each article we print here.  If the article is about a Preacher or Ministry which we feel is preaching or teaching false doctrine or false teachings, we would ask you to be in prayer that the Lord would touch their hearts and minds so that they might see the error in their ways and turn to the Holy God who is Lord over and of our lives.  We mean no ill will to anyone or any ministry but we must, according to Scripture, warn the people when we see the enemy at work regardless of the nature if it is contrary to God's Word.

A Thought to Ponder
by Pastor Wise

Today I wish to explain to those who might not know or understand why I write these short articles.  My goal and intention is to get people to think.  I pray these short devotions make you think about your Christian life, and to think about your Christian walk.  So many times we get comfortable in our walk with the Lord which can be very detrimental to our lives.  What exactly do I mean by “comfortable”? 

When we get comfortable, we find ourselves proclaiming to be Christians, followers of the Risen Lord Jesus but not living to any extent that proclamation.  Jesus told us to take up our cross and follow him daily.  When we are comfortable, we tend to forget that part of the Bible.  We tend to just play the part.  We do not apply Jesus to our everyday lives whether it be our working life, church time, or in our personal time. 

Jesus had something to say about this in His Word.  In Revelations 3:15-17, Jesus said: “ 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked”.

I would beseech all of us to re-examine ourselves, to re-evaluate ourselves to see if we might be cold, hot or just lukewarm for the Lord.  Receive these words I write to you as a token of my love for you as children of the Living God.  Your soul is important to me and to God.

Ask yourself:  If I am comfortable (lukewarm), am I willing to confess it and change?  If you cannot honestly answer that question, please email me.  I am here to help you in your walk with the Lord.

To those who can honestly say: “Yes, I am alive and on fire for God”, Praise the Lord.  Help those you know who might be struggling with this question.

Billy Sunday"Take 15 minutes each day to listen to God talking to you; take
minutes each day to talk to God; take 15 minutes each day to talk to others about God." - Billy Sunday
Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God. Maybe that would be a good thing for us to do also?

Charles Spurgeon
Charles Spurgeon, known widely as the "Prince of Preachers" has given the world many good and lasting sermons, quotes and information to help in your walk with the Lord, especially concerning helping to win souls for Christ.  Though you may not agree with everything Spurgeon said, he has left us with much to be thankful for.

Then & Now
A preacher in those days, when he felt God called him to preach, didn't hunt up a college or seminary, he hunted up a good horse, took off across the country and began crying "Behold the Lamb of God, that taketh away the sin of the world"!   Today they look for the best paying job with the best retirement package.
