Old Testament Reading;
6:12 “Be careful that you do not forget the Lord, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.”
8:19-20 “If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them. I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed. 20Like the nations the Lord destroyed before you so you will be destroyed for not obeying the Lord your God.”
Where is our nation headed? I believe it is time to train up our youth in the ways of the Lord. Many of them do not know. My generation really dropped the ball here. Thinking freedom from religion was a cool thing. My generation said, “ I’m going to let my children make up their own mind. I’m not going to make them go to church, eat their broccoli or sensor their media. I will let them choose”. The problem is my generation was to lazy to teach them the ways of the Lord while the world was busy teaching them the path to destruction. In order for them to make a choice they need all the knowledge. They need to know what true freedom is. True freedom comes when they understand the Love of Jesus Christ. They become free of guilt and shame and have a sincere desire to do what God approves of them doing. I pray that we as adults take the time to do what we can to help our nation. Take the time to teach our children the truth of GOD! They will carve out the future of our country. God has given them free will. Give them free choice by being as determined to educate them, as the opposition is determined in their deception.
One nation under GOD! (or no nation)
New Testament Reading; Luke11: 33-54
11:33”No one lights a lamp and puts it in a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.”
Kimberly’s thought’s; In today’s world I feel like, many of us Christians only talk about the Lord in Bible study or on Sundays. Its like we have to keep Him in a politically correct box. I call it the Sunday Box. In order for people to know of our great Lord and Savior WE have to tell them! We are called to be “Fishers of Men”. Today and each day be encouraged to BE BOLD IN YOUR FAITH!!! The enemy is certainly being bold.
42:1 “As deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God.”
Kimberly’s thoughts; If we are not filled with the love of God we are left panting for “what ever” we think will fill us up.
