"Highway to Heaven - It is Time to Learn to Fly"





One of the most tragic mistakes of Christianity has been to focus on the prophecies of judgment about the end of the age instead of fulfilling the commandment to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom. Gospel means "good news," and it is the greatest news the world has ever or will ever hear. When that greatest hope of all is articulated, no message on earth will have ever had a greater impact. It is time to take up this…

Forgiveness Heals

It’s easier to be bitter

Than to feel the pain of grief

It’s easier to be angry

Than look for true relief

It’s easier to blame someone

For all the sufferings

It’s easier to sit alone

When imperfect grace stings

But if my Lord I’d follow

I’ll not seek ease,…

When God Heals

When God Heals



When God comes to heal us

It’s final and complete

There is nothing that is lacking

When He meets us in our need



Whether it be in our body

Or the hurt within our soul

He will touch the point of need

And will truly make us whole



His healing is there for you

Just receive it from the Lord

Believe upon the living word

That you can be…

Meeting You Where You Are?

 

Daily Bible Verse & Prayer

Today's Verse - Psalm 23:4

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 23:4

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Death is the ultimate profanity in today's world. We don't like to think about it, much less talk about it. However, death is that one reality that will not leave us alone. We lose friends and family members to death. At one point in our lives, we too, will face this inevitability unless Jesus comes before our passing. So what is our assurance as we face the inescapable? Our Sheperd! He will walk us through, guiding and protecting and comforting us in our journey. And as Christians, this promise is only intensified because we know Jesus as our Good Shepherd, and he has taken the walk ahead of us to assure us that our walk through death's valley doesn't end in death, but in glory.

My Prayer...

Dear Heavenly Father, my Shepherd and Savior, thank you that I do not have to face death alone. I look for your guidance and listen for your voice to lead me through death's dark valley and bring me to your holy and glorious presence in victory and with joy. In Jesus' name I confidently pray. Amen.

Today's Verse - Proverbs 16:16

How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver!

Proverbs 16:16

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What are the greatest riches in life? Well surely they are not silver and gold. Of infinitely greater value is wisdom, which helps us understand what is valuable, what is true, what is worthy of our heart, and what is not.

My Prayer...

Heavenly Father, God of the Ages and Giver of every good and perfect gift, please bless me with holy and practical wisdom so that I can more fully know how you have blessed me and so that I can be the blessing to others that you want me to be. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Today's Verse - Romans 6:15

What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!

Romans 6:15

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

This matching verse to Romans 6:1-2, is the great reminder that sin is no longer our master and no longer our choice. We choose to live for God with every fiber of our being and loathe the life of sin that once held us in bondage to death and defeat.

My Prayer...

Dear God, my Father... precious Jesus my Lord... Holy Spirit my inner companion and holy fire... stir in me a holy passion to be the person of holy and righteous grace you have created me and redeemed me to be. Amen.

Today's Verse - Romans 6:14

For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.

Romans 6:14

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

As we called on Jesus name in baptism and trusted him to be our Savior, we died to sin. In this death, we die to dying and pass from death to life because of our faith in Jesus and in God's power (John 5:24; Col. 2:12). Our life is joined to Jesus, and his glorious future becomes our own (Col. 3:1-4). We are not under law, but grace. Let's respond to the gift of grace with passion and with zeal to be holy. Let's open ourselves to the transforming work of the Holy Spirit, who changes us to be like Jesus (2 Cor. 3:18). We are grace-children. We are not in bondage to sin, but liberated by grace to be all that God has made us to be — his craftmanship (Eph. 2:1-10). Sin will not be our master!

My Prayer...

Purify my heart, dear LORD and Father, and make it new and alive to your grace and dead to the sin that once entangled me. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Today's Verse - Titus 2:13-14

We wait for the blessed hope — the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

Titus 2:13-14

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We haven't arrived at our destination (cf. Philipppians 3). We are in waiting! Jesus, who offered his own life for our redemption, will gloriously return to take us home. During our time of waiting, let's be eager to do what is right, good, and holy.

My Prayer...

Father, make me holy. Holy Spirit, make me eager. Jesus, make me glorious. Do these things for your praise and for the blessing of those who need to know you better. Please forgive me for the times I have settled for mediocrity and stir me to a holy passion to belong to you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
