What’s In a Name? A Way to Remember and Appreciate Jesus Christ

J esus, Son of God Eternal
E verlasting Lord is He,
S avior of a world of sinners,
U niversal King to be,
S ought us, brought us victory.

C hrist is due all adoration,
H umbly born to save our race,
R
uler now of all creation;
I
ntercedes to give us grace,
S
aves us from sin’s condemnation,
T
ruly worthy of all praise!

May the Lord continue to bless you as you seek to do His will.

Not Sure if This Would Sound Right….

Most everyone who knows me knows I am a big fan of basketball. Most know that it was a big part of my life growing up and through school and it remains one of my favorite past times to both play and watch either on t.v. or live. I wonder what those that know me as well those who don’t, would think if I made comments such as the ones below, or acted like I believe these statements.

“Of course basketball is my favorite sport, just don’t expect me to talk about it with others.”

“I love getting to go to live basketball games, I just hate it when they go long (into overtime) and I have to keep watching.”

“Why would I want to go to a game again tonight, I just went to one earlier today?”

“I love basketball, just don’t make me spend more than a couple hours a week dealing with it.”

“I know this is a special opportunity to watch a game that doesn’t normally come around, I just don’t feel like it tonight.”

As I look at these statement I can’t help but believe it would cause others to doubt how important basketball really is to me.

Now let’s take it to a different arena. As Christians we proclaim to the world that God and Jesus are the most important things in our lives. If that is true, would this look or sound right?

“Yes my salvation and hope of a home in Heaven is the most important thing in my life, just don’t ask me to talk about it with others.”

“Why would I want to go to a Sunday evening study, I just went to a worship service this morning?”

“I know that this gospel meeting is a special opportunity to study and learn about what is most important in my life, I just don’t feel like going out tonight.”

May we all live lives that show our relationship with God and His Son are most important and there is nothing that would prevent us from spending more time studying and learning about our future home in Heaven.

Coincidence? Probably Not!…Kinda Makes You Think

I just returned home from attending my son Jared’s year end school awards. As often happens when I attend these type of events, I started making some interesting observations. I would like to share just two.

Observation 1: Students who achieved success in their learning (ie. A honor role or A/B honor role) also achieved outstanding attendance for the year (ie. two or less missed days of school) Showing up leads to greater learning and success…Coincidence? Probably not!

Observation 2: Students who were heavily involved in the promotion and work of the school (ie. student council, student ambassadors) also achieved outstanding attendance for the year. Showing up leads to promoting and working for the good of the school (ie involvement in its success)…Coincidence? Probably not!

Kinda makes you wonder…

Could I achieve greater success in learning about God if I had outstanding attendance when it comes to opportunities to assemble with my brethren?….Probably So!

Would I do a better job of promoting the Lord’s Church and doing it’s work if I had outstanding attendance when it comes to opportunities to assemble with my brethren?…Probably so!

Let us heed the Word of God and take every opportunity to assemble with the saints, it can only make us better.
