WORDS OF WISDOM: TODAY’S THOUGHT! (In English, also available in Spanish)
10/7 Tue
God has never failed us and He never will.

Didn’t Jesus save your soul and change your life when you asked Him to by faith and through obedience? Didn’t He forgive your sins and replace the turmoil in your soul with His sweet peace, just because you cried out in faith and obeyed Him? Hasn’t He given you assurance after assurance that you belong to Him and that it is well with your soul? If He can do that, it seems to me that He can do anything! How much faith did you have when you came to Him for salvation? Did you have great faith on that day, or was your faith small, frail and limited? It was probably the smallest faith of them all. You didn’t even have any faith until He gave it to you. Yet that small faith was sufficient to connect you to a big God Who was able to save you on the basis of that faith. When your tiny faith touched His boundless grace, you were wonderfully saved! Did You know? For more information, read today’s “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH”, and share it with those You love. Thank You! God Bless YOU! Vic.


HAVE A BLESSED DAY

Let's make the journey to heaven together.

Regardless of the fears you may have today, they are little when they are placed next to the Lord. If He can create the universe out of nothing; surely He can meet your need! If He can keep Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego through the fiery furnace, He can take care of you! If He can secure Daniel in the lion’s den, He can take care of you! If He can feed three million Jews in the desert for forty years, He can take care of you! If He can defeat sin, death, Hell, the grave and Satan using an old rugged cross and an empty tomb, He can take care of you! If He can save you from your sins, He can take care of you! Whatever you fear today, bring it to Him, and leave it in His hand. He is more than able to take care of you. Did You know? For more information, read today’s “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH”, and share it with those You love. Thank You! God Bless YOU! Vic.

Apart from the ministry of the Heavenly Shepherd, no lost person would ever find their way to God. The lost are hopelessly lost and they need a Shepherd to come and rescue them. I thank God for doing just what He does. Apart from the intervention of the Heavenly Shepherd, no lost person would ever be able to avoid the wrath of God and the fires of Hell. The lost are in terrible danger: (Hell and God’s awful wrath). Religious activity, good works, good intentions and being a good person will never be enough to keep you out of Hell. The only antidote for the poison of sin is the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is your only hope and the only way of salvation. When a lost sheep comes to Him for salvation, they receive absolute security. Apart from the ministry of the Heavenly Shepherd, the lost person does not even know that he is lost. This truth must be revealed to them by the convicting work of the Holy Spirit. Did You know?

There really is no greater thrill in life than to serve the Lord when He is blessing that service. When you stop to consider where you came from and how He saved your soul. Then, to think that He would allow you a small part in His kingdom work, is a blessing too great to comprehend. Yet, the Bible is clear; the Lord saved us to serve Him. He purposely redeemed us so that we might serve Him in this world. When He saved us, He equipped us for a special place in His kingdom work. Our service to the Lord proves the reality of our salvation experience. It is a wonderful thing to be busy for the Lord! To be allowed to serve Him is a blessing. And, there are no small tasks in His kingdom. Some people say they can’t serve the Lord because they don’t have any training. Look at the disciples! They were sent out with very little training and limited knowledge of the things of God. Don’t wait until you know it all to do something for the Lord. Act on what you know and trust the Lord to teach you as you go. Did You know? For more information, read today’s “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH”, and share it with those You love. Thank You! God Bless YOU! Vic.

One reason Jesus cares is because He knows what we face in life. He knows this because He came to this world and lived among us for a time. God Almighty actually robed Himself in human flesh so that He might live among men and die on a cross for sinners. While He was here, He endured more than His share of pain, poverty and suffering. He knows what it is like to do without. He knows what it is like to be rejected. He knows what it is like to be hated. He knows what it is like to suffer pain. He knows what it is like to be hungry, thirsty and alone. He knows what it is like to die. Jesus walked through this world and experienced what He did so that He might better help you in your time of need. Did You know?

10/2 Thu
Some people around Herod and around the region were saying that Jesus was Elijah or one of the other prophets. Herod is convinced that Jesus is none other than John the Baptist. Then, Herod makes a startling confession. He says “whom I beheaded”, (that “I” is an “emphatic, personal pronoun”). Herod is saying “whom I and I alone beheaded”. Herod is confessing his guilt, but he is not seeking forgiveness from the hand of God. There is confession, but there is no repentance! Thus, there is no salvation! There is only the death of a conscience and Herod stifles the last effort of his wounded soul to call him to God. It is one thing to know you are guilty of sin. It is another thing altogether for you to get honest about that sin. When you get honest about your sins and confess them to the Lord, He will forgive your sins. When there is a desire to repent, or turn away from sin, there can be salvation. But, when He calls and you ignore that call, choosing to remain in your sins, there is nothing left for you but judgment. God can cleanse. God can restore. God can give new life. But, He only does these things in the face of a “good conscience” that longs to do right. Did You know?

Herodias had been biding her time, waiting for an opportunity to see John the Baptist put to death. She saw her chance at Herod’s birthday bash. This supper was nothing more than a drunken party for Herod and his men. When they were drunk with wine, Herodias sprung her trap. She sent in her teenage daughter Salome to dance for Herod and his friends. This particular dance would have been a suggestive, sensual, sexual dance designed to inflame the passions of the men in the room. These dances were usually performed by professional dancers or by prostitutes hired for the event. Her dance had the desired effect, for Herod and those with him were captivated by the beautiful youngster. This act reveals the wickedness that was in the heart of Herodias. Imagine putting your daughter on display in that fashion. Imagine sending her out to dance for a man who was both her uncle and step-father! What wickedness! People are no different today! Many are wicked to the core! Did You know? For more information, read today’s “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH”, and share it with those You love. Thank You! God Bless YOU! Vic.

There are many people just like Herod in our world today. They get caught up in the preaching or the personality of a man, but they miss the point of the message. They like to hear their favorite preacher preach, but they have no intentions of doing everything the Bible is telling them to do. That is a dangerous way to live your life! When God speaks to your heart, He is extending grace to you that you do not deserve! He is showing you that He cares about you, that He loves you and that He has a better plan for your life. When He points out your errors in the Word of God, He does so because He loves you and wants change you. Don’t be like Herod and play around with the things of God. Herod kept John and treated him like he was a pet parrot. He treated the Word of God like he could do as he pleased with it. Nothing sears the conscience any quicker than saying “no” to the Word of God. If the Lord has been speaking to you about any area of your life, you need to heed His voice and obey His Word without delay. To do otherwise is deadly! Did You know?

We need to talk about the conscience. A lot of people are confused about the conscience and what it does. Many people believe that the conscience was given to us to help us make decisions between right and wrong. That is a false assumption! The conscience will only resist any deviation from the truth, or the right and the wrong it knows. For instance, if you have been raised to believe the Bible is absolute truth, your conscience will help you know the difference between what is right and wrong based on the Bible, your standard for truth. If you start to do something the Bible says is a sin, your conscience will rise up and tell you to stop. If, on the other hand, you have been raised to believe that there are no limits in life and you can do as you please, your conscience will not give you any problems. That is why so many people are in such trouble today. They have adopted a philosophy that says, “If it feels good, do it!” As a result, they do not live by the truth of the Word of God, but by the feelings of their flesh. They do as they please and their conscience never bothers them. Did You know? For more information, read today’s “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH”, and share it with those You love. Thank You! God Bless YOU! Vic.

Most of the time repentance is only preached in its negative sense. People are told that they need to stop doing certain things, and that is true. Repentance is far more that that! Repentance has both a negative aspect and a positive aspect. Repentance looks backward, but it also looks forward. Repentance says, “I will stop doing the things I should not do and I will begin to do the things I should do. I will stop living a life of sin and I will start to live a life of holiness.” Repentance arises out of a heart that is sorry for the wrongs it is guilty of committing. That sorrow produces a desire to change the way the repenting sinner is living. That is genuine biblical repentance and it is something that we do not see a lot of in these days! Did You know?

The Christian life is not about being comfortable. There are time when serving the Lord is anything but comfortable. Our duty is to take whatever He gives us with a heart of gratitude and learn to be content with the things He provides. Preachers, if you pastor a church, there may be times when you will have to get by on very little. If you serve a church where the people are small minded about the things of God, they will do their best to see to it that you have to live by faith. Thank God for people who know the Pastor and his family have needs too! Regardless of the pay package, we preachers should not look to the church as the source of our resources. We should look to the hand of the Lord and trust Him to meet our needs! As for the rest of the church, if you are serving Him, you can trust Him to take care of you, That is His promise and He will stand by it. Did You know?

When Jesus saves a soul, He gives them the power to carry His message to the world. We may feel inadequate for the task, but His power rests in us and on us. We may be weak in our words and we may feel that our testimony lacks power, but Jesus has promised to give us His power. And His power is more than enough to get the job done! Therefore, we can go into this world and share the Gospel, knowing that He has called us and empowered us to do just that! Did You know?

There is a word here for the church. Jesus shows up when we meet. He desires to teach us truth and He wants to help us to grow. If we come to the house of the Lord expecting something from God, we will be amazed at what He can do. However, if we come with an “I’ve seen it all and heard it all before” attitude, we can expect nothing from the Lord. We come to the church house and expect the preacher to preach it down and work it up. The fact is, a great worship service demands the participation of both preacher and congregation. William Barclay put it this way: “There can be no preaching in the wrong atmosphere. The congregation is responsible for at least half of every sermon. In an atmosphere of expectancy, the least effort will catch fire. In an atmosphere of coldness or indifference, the most spirit-filled of sermons will fall flat.” Did You know?

If your concept of Who Jesus is stops with a baby in a manger or a dead man on a cross, you are missing the whole point! You must come to the place where you understand that Jesus Christ is the very Son of God. You must understand that He died for your sins on the cross and that He rose again from the dead. You must come to a place where you turn from your sins, and believe on Jesus for your soul’s salvation or you have no hope of Heaven! There is much about Jesus, the Bible and the Gospel that I do not understand. I can’t figure out why He would love me. I can’t figure out why He would even care where I am going to spend eternity. I can’t understand how He was able to save me from my sins when I called out to Him. But, my questions do not stop me from believing! What I don’t understand does not prevent me from acting on what I do understand. Did You know?

Our Lord’s message still affects people that way. When you read the Bible and study the message of the Gospel, it can cause you to be astonished. Consider some of the claims of the Bible: All people are sinners; All sinners are headed to a place called Hell; There is only one way to be saved from sin and its penalty; All other religions in the world are false religions and they all lead to Hell; The only way for anyone to be saved is for them to place their faith in a man Who lived, died and rose again from the dead 2,000 years ago. Those are amazing claims because they condemn much of the world to a lost eternity. When people in our day hear the claims of the Gospel, they react in anger. They reject the message and attack the messenger, just as they did in Jesus’ day. What do you think when you hear the claims of the Gospel? Do you rejoice in its truth, knowing that it has saved you soul? Or, do you hear it and reject its message, thinking you know a better way? Did You know?

Jairus had his faith enlarged by this encounter with Jesus. He discovered the power of God and his life would never be the same. If I could leave you with anything today, it would be this: When sickness comes – Believe Jesus! When death comes – Believe Jesus! When the bottom falls out of life – Believe Jesus! When the answers to your prayers are delayed – Believe Jesus! When you are ridiculed for your faith – Believe Jesus! When you are looking at a hopeless situation – Believe Jesus! When I place my problem beside the Lord, it suddenly grows very small. No matter how great it looks in my eyes, it is nothing compared to Him! After all, He is a God Who can create a universe from nothing and can do anything! A God Who can part a sea, rain down manna from heaven, heal a sick body, raise a dead body, and save a lost soul, can do anything! Did You know?

There are many people who look at death as the end of all things. They see it as a time of absolute hopelessness. Jesus seems to have a different opinion. He calls it “sleep”. Now, don’t misunderstand, He isn’t talking about so-called “soul sleep”. Many in our world believe the soul and the body go together into the grave to await the resurrection. That is simply foolish. When Jesus says the girl is sleeping, He reveals a proper perspective of death. When death claims a believer, the body lies down in sleep, but the soul flies away. There is no real death for a child of God. In actual death the soul is separated from God for all eternity. This event is called “the second death”. The second death has no power over the child of God. Did You know? For more information, read today’s “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH”, and share it with those You love. Thank You!

As Jesus is finally finishing up with this woman, some people come from that home of Jairus with devastating news. His daughter is dead! Notice the cold way in which they inform this poor father. There is no compassion, no comfort, and no sympathy; there is nothing but cold, hard fact. The news is blunt and final: “Thy daughter is dead: Why troublest thou the Master any further?” They are saying, “Don’t bother Jesus! Even He can’t fix this problem! Your daughter is dead and that is just the way it is!” Surely this news rocked Jairus to his foundations! Surely this news attacked his faith and brought Jairus to the very edge of despair! Surely he must have thought about the delay. I wonder if he became a little bitter at the Lord. Did You know?

Let me just remind you that tragedy doesn’t care who you are! The trials of life are not going to pass you by. Tragedy doesn’t care that you go to church and pay your tithes. Sickness and death could care less about your achievements and assets. When the trials of life come, you need a resource outside of yourself. When death, sickness, sorrow, marital trouble, financial trouble, etc., comes, you need more than some religion or the stuff of this world! You need a faith that rests in Jesus and in His power alone. What do you really trust today? Did You know?

One startling bit of research found the following: When the father is an active believer, there is about a seventy-five percent likelihood that the children will also become active believers. But if only the mother is a believer, this likelihood is dramatically reduced to fifteen percent. Fathers, men: your influence in the lives of children is beyond calculating. When it came to Jesus, Jairus led his family in the right path. He openly declared his faith in the Lord. He willingly brought his home under the influence of Jesus. He calmly placed his child under the sovereign care of the Lord Jesus. Jairus got it right, and his family was forever changed because of it. Did You know?

One of the greatest gifts you can give your children is the gift of prayer and the gift of faith in God. Be diligent to take their names before the Lord. Pray for their salvation, their protection, their devotion to the Lord, their holiness. Pray that God will guide them, shield them, teach them and give them am ever deepening hunger for the things of God. Men, that appetite will be cultivated by what they learn from watching you. If they see men who love the Lord, they are more likely to love Him too. If they are surrounded by men who are faithful to God, they are more likely to be faithful to Him too. But, if they are surrounded by men who take the things of God lightly and treat God, with less than full devotion, that will be the path they will likely take as well. Did You know?

I once read about a farmer who had labored all spring and summer of a crop of wheat. As harvest time neared, he was sure that he would receive a bumper crop. This crop was sorely needed to pray off creditors and supply and secure the family for another year. Just a few days before the crop was to be harvested, a freak storm that brought strong winds and hail completely destroyed the crop. The harvest was lost! That farmer stood beside his field and looked at the ruined crop. His small son stood nearby. The boy expected that his father would react in anger and despair. He expected his father to curse the weather, and maybe even God. Instead, that father began to softly sing, “Rock of Ages cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee...” When that boy reached adulthood he said, “That was the greatest sermon I ever heard.” His father had demonstrated a genuine faith that was real in the good times and in the bad, and that father’s faith spoke volumes to that son!

9/14 Sun
All those who come to Jesus get far more than they ever bargained for. Many come to Him because they are afraid of Hell. When we come to Him, our faith is so small. We don’t understand the deep things of the Word of God. We don’t understand the complexities and nuances of theology. But, when our little faith reaches out to Him, He responds by giving us everything Heaven has. Then, we begin the exciting journey of finding out about our riches in Jesus. We soon discover that we got far more than just a fire insurance policy. We are children of God. We have a home in Heaven. We are heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus. We have a new life. We are free from the power of sin to control and dominate them. We are no longer God’s enemies. We have been reconciled to Him. We have been fully and forever forgiven. Did You know? For more information, read today’s “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH”, and share it with those You love. Thank You! God Bless YOU and have a blessed weekend! Vic.

9/13 Sat
As soon as this woman touches Him, Jesus knows what has happened. Just for the record, He knew about it before it happened! He willed it! He knows that “virtue” has gone out of Him. This is a word that means “power”. We get our modern words “dynamite” and “dynamic” from it. Jesus knows what has happened and He asks the question, “Who touched My clothes?” Of course, there were dozens of people touching Him and bumping into Him that day, a fact pointed out by the disciples, but her touch was different; it was a touch accompanied by faith. Many touched Him, but only one touched Him with the fingers of faith! Jesus could have let her walk away with physical healing, but He called her out because He wanted to give her more than physical healing. He wanted to move her beyond her superstitious faith. He wanted to save her soul. When Jesus spoke to this woman, you will notice that she fell before Him in fear. This was the very reason she came silently from behind Him to touch Him. This was why she did not come to Him openly. She was afraid she would be rejected! She probably expected Jesus to lash out at her for touching Him. She thought He would treat her like everyone else would have treated her. Just by touching Him, she would have defiled Him until sundown. Jesus was not interested in humiliating her. He was not interested in driving her away from His presence. He was not interested in preaching her a sermon on uncleanness from the Law. He was interested in helping her with her problem! He was interested in saving her soul. Did You know? For more information, read today’s “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH”, and share it with those You love. Thank You! God Bless YOU and have a blessed weekend! Vic.

Somewhere, this poor woman heard about Jesus. She heard about Jesus, and she knew she had to get to Him. She came to realize that Jesus was her only hope! She believed with all her heart that if she could just get to Him, she would be healed. She displayed her determination to get to Jesus by approaching Him in that crowd. As she elbowed her way through the people, she was causing ceremonial defilement for everyone she touched. She was taking a great risk, for if she had been recognized, she would have been subjected to public humiliation and ridicule. A crowd like that might have gotten worked up and beat her or stoned her to death. For her, it was a risk worth taking. She believed Jesus would heal her! She had to be determined, because by the very nature of her disease, it would have taken all the energy she had to drag herself out of her bed to struggle through that crowd to get to Jesus. She was desperate! Have you reached that place in your life yet? Have you come to understand that Jesus is the only hope you have? If you are in this building lost today, you need to get to Jesus! He is the only source of salvation for you. If you have never trusted Him for salvation, then you need to come to Him. Jesus is your only hope. You need to touch Him by faith! Did You know?

This woman pictures every person who does not know Jesus Christ as Savior. The lost are defiled by a blood disease. They inherited this disease from Adam. This condition has plagued the lost person since they were born. It is a condition the sinner can’t make better or change on their own. Many lost people spend their entire lives searching for meaning and help for their condition, but instead of getting better, they only get worse. Their hearts get harder, and they become more deeply rooted in their sins. All the efforts at self-improvement and religion do not improve their condition! This poor woman was in a sad shape, but she wasn’t nearly as bad off as that person who is not saved. She was merely headed to the grave; they are headed to an eternity in Hell. Did You know?
