My Heating Unit Stops Working March 25, 2014 Hmmm!!!

“And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.” Matt. 24:20-22 (NKJV)

Doesn’t sound much like a devotional title, but the point is, my unit did go out, and it should not have mattered, we are a few weeks into springtime when the birds begin to 8456sing and the grass starts to turn green so who needs heat. But at the end of March in Nashville the temp. was in the twenties and cold. But I survived, and God is a mighty good God.

But where I need you to focus today is the volatile times we live in nothing is predictable the seasons, the weather, mud slides, Saber Rattling from country to country. The Koch Brothers, spending millions through their super PAC to pay Americans to think unamerican as they buy elections. To the suppression of voters right to vote, that a few have died for.

Lawlessness continues on a level, not quite seen in our lifetime, as “the love of many grows cold” and the god of this world continues to reign in this world for another day. But my friends his time is running out. But have you as a child of God decided what your agenda is as you wait for Christ second coming. Or are you content in just waiting.

Well that will never work if you are sincere about your salvation. “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” 1 cor. 14:33 (KJV) So there must be a plan. One that includes God’s Spirit and a mission statement that says I will serve Christ till the day he appears, to take me home.

Now the next question is how will you serve, because one thing I have learned if you are sincere about given it all to the master His Spirit will guide you “But when he, the techSpirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” John 16:13 (NIV)

While much of the fruit of our labor will not be apparent in this life, God’s workers have His sure promise of ultimate success. But there must be a sincere commitment to Christ for “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” Matt 10:37 (NIV)

Friends the text does not tell us not to love but it puts everything in this world we hold dear to us, car, home, Job, Church, Family in perspective to where we place the one who gave it all for our Salvation. So therefore our responsibility and duty as Christians as we enter into the last phase of this life’s history before Christ soon return is to make Christ and His will for us our number one priority.

imgresThe challenge must become personal, as we become passionate about our desire to serve. In the 21st century we must create new and inventive ways to witnessing. It cannot be business as usual, the message of the saving power of Jesus Christ will never change, but the technique, the way we go about communicating the message must be the challenge to God’s Chosen.

Through modern technology extraordinary things must happen but it is up to us to make it happen. So “Every impulse, every imagination, every ambition, and every desire must be submitted to Christ. Every possession, physical or invisible, every talent and ability, and everything of value must be under Christ’s command. What we don’t surrender to Him can, and inevitably will, become an idol, with the potential to lead us astray.” (Dan Solis)

So my friends stay faithful to your values stay focused, and keep your eyes on the prize which is Life eternal, and endure even if your Heating Unit Stops Working in the cold, in spring, when the birds should be singing, and the grass turning green.


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
