How to Abide in Christ How to abide in Jesus Christ How do we know if we are abiding in Jesus Christ? In John 15 the whole chapter is devoted to this subject. As Christians we want to make sure we are abiding in Jesus Christ because our relationship with Him determines if we are walking with our Lord the right way. John 15:1 says “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.” Here we see that Jesus represents the vine. A vine that is on a tree is big and strong. The branches that grow out of the vine are not strong. We are the branches and Jesus is the vine. We need to embrace Jesus Christ because He is strong and we are not. John 15:2 says “Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring more fruit.” Every Christian who is not bearing fruit for Jesus just gets pushed aside and thrown out because it has


New W eek Inspiration God's Timing The vision that God has given And the things that He has planned, May not happen right away Or in ways that we understand For often God's preparing us For when that day arrives When we will see the outworking Of God's vision in our lives Though it tarries, wait for it, For it will surely come God's timing never comes too late, He'll accomplish what He's begun God is never slow to act; He will surely bring it to pass We need not be anxious and despair, But have peace within our hearts For when it comes, we'll be released Into what the Lord's prepared, So we will fulfil all that He's planned As we are being gently led. © By M.S.Lowndes Habakkuk 2:3King James Version (KJV) 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Psalm 27:14King James Version (KJV) 14 Wait on the LORD: be

Our guide for life

Our guide for life "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. " Psalm 119:105. If we read the Bible everyday with the  motive and purpose of receiving fresh manna from heaven  then and only then will this verse apply to our lives. If the Bible is a lamp unto our feet then we will know how  to walk through our lives and what to do but with the right motive. One of the number one questions Christians ask is, "What do I do?" or, "What is the will of God for my life?" I have beat myself up so many times over this issue but  I just had to grow up a little because it was never meant to be hard. Ninety percent of what we have to do before God is  walking with Jesus Christ and perhaps the other ten  percent is a mystery. It is kind of interesting that we  focus on the ten percent more than the ninety percent.  What if God does not give me the answer to the ten  percent? O.K then

Darkness is coming!.

Darkness is coming! Darkness is covering the whole earth. Darkness is coming from Rome to the USA. Darkness is shadowing the whole world. Darkness is a blight on people everywhere. Darkness is covering us like a blanket. What are we to do? It is like a thirst that cannot be quenched. You can drink and drink, and still you remain thirsty. What is to be done? People everywhere are dying of thirst, but cannot find a drink of water anywhere. John 4:13 Jesus said, Come to me you who are thirsty, and I will give you water to drink. The water I give will not leave you thirsty for more. What about the darkness, you ask? Jesus said, "I am the Light of the world. In me is no darkness." We murder millions of babies every year. Think of that! Millions of children who will not grow up. Millions of children who will not know the love of a Mother or Father! Millions of children who will not know the love of Grandparents. That is so sad! We murder each other at an alarming rate.

Thursday Inspiration.

20 hrs  ·  Thursday’s Inspiration Desert Times There are times in our lives, The Lord may lead us through A lifeless, barren desert, A time of testing too But desert times can be A place of special growth, Where God can do a work And let His healing flow I know that in these times, We don't feel God is there, We feel so very distant And lost without His care But God is there beside you To bring you to a place Of cool, refreshing waters Flowing with His grace But for the present moment, You maybe in a drought, Don't give up on your faith And don't you start to doubt God is always faithful And He will walk with you, Through the darkest moments, He'll be leading you. © By M.S.Lowndes Psalm 66:10King James Version (KJV) 10 For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried. James 1:2-3King James Version (KJV) 2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your


Are you feeling condemned? This is not hard to sense in a world that is filled with sin and bad news. We probably feel guilty if we sinned before God. I learned the hard way in life to avoid sin and talk to God about my transgressions. I confess my known and unknown sins before God on a regular basis because I want to be clean before God. " There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit." Romans 8:1. Did you ever notice that people seem to be harder on other people in these last and final seconds before the rapture of the Church? The reason for this is because the world understands condemnation and knows how to use it against people. " In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." 2 Corinthians 4:4. The devil is the god of this world and accord

Wednesday Inspiration

Wednesday's Inspiration My Closest Friend I place my hope in you, For you alone are Lord There could never be another, I could ever love more There's no one that comes closer To you in my life, For you are my closest friend, In whom I can confide And share my deepest longings, My hurts and my fears, Knowing you will understand And wipe away my tears Knowing I can come to you, Morning, noon and night, You will never turn me away, But give ear to my plight And you will not condemn me, Nor judge what I say, For you are full of constant love And listen when I pray Your love was such that you died, My soul, you came to save From certain eternal misery Awaiting beyond the grave But now, in you, I can be sure Of eternity with you, Freed from pain and misery With eternal joy too. © By M.S.Lowndes Proverbs 18:24King James Version (KJV) 24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Prove


Eternity     Eternity is forever. If I were to ask if three hundred trillion years is a lot of time you would probably answer yes. That would be a correct answer. Let me ask you a follow up question. Is three hundred trillion years a lot of time in light of eternity? The answer is no because forever will just be beginning at that future point.   I talk to people about their eternity all the time and the most common response I receive is avoidance. I ask myself, "Why would something this big be so small in their minds and hearts?"   They would say there are so many other priorities and that would be pretty low on the pecking order. Do you know how many people are in hell right now because the subject of the afterlife was placed very low on the "Things to be concerned list?" Perhaps billions.   I heard many stories about the afterlife. One man was a minister and thought he was right with God. He died and ended up in
