Show me the one, show me the way, help me to know just how to share the love You gave.

Look around you! There is probably someone who could use some love! All too often, we find ourselves surrounded by people who are going through some difficult times. Perhaps you are! Whether it's unemployment, family problems, health problems, depression, loneliness, or whatever, all of us would like some relief from what we are going through. We need to see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

And there is! The Light of Lights, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is willing and more than able to lift us from our darkness, into His pure and safe haven of light. He promises His love and presence to heal and deliver, to strengthen and help, all those who call on Him.

Like the beam from the mighty lighthouse, that directs ships safely back to harbor, His Light is there to show us the way to Him, for Jesus is truly the Way, the Truth and the Life.

It is my prayer that this site encourages you to reflect His light to those around you who need to know Him. Let Him use you to share His love. And as you embark on this remarkable journey, please share your experiences so that all of us can grow together in our quest to reach all the world, lest anyone should perish.

May God richly bless you!

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

Terror In The Sky

This week we learned that a copilot who had mental issues locked the pilot out of the cockpit and proceeded to crash the jetliner, killing over a hundred passengers and crew. Despite his doctor writing an order for him not to fly, he ignored that warning. The families and loved ones of these people are now mourning and grieving. No one who boarded that plane knew of their fate.
Which brings me to this: what role did God play in all of this?
The Bible tells us many things about life and death.
O Lord, You have searched me and You know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
You perceive my thoughts from afar.
For You created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother's womb.
All the days ordained for me
were written in Your book
before one of them came to be.
~Psalm 139:1-2,13,16
God is all-knowing and in control of all that happens. Jesus tells us in Matthew 10:30 that the very hairs of our head are numbered. He knows when we are going to be born... and when we are going to die.
For some of these people on this plane, their souls went on to be with Jesus in heaven. For others, they didn't. Which makes hell their eternal destiny. They don't have another chance. It depended on the decision they made beforehand whether they were going to make Jesus their Lord and Savior.
How about you? Have you made that most important decision to accept Christ and make Him your Lord? If you haven't, why not? Some of you may have been putting it off, feeling you have some time. You want to "sow your oats" first and aren't ready to give up your earthly pleasures. You think you have time. But do you really?
God already knows what your last day of life will be like. You may be alone. Or you may be with other people. He also knows when your last day will be.
Do you?
