_ 122614 God is able

It’s March 04 and the 63rd day of 2013. I was sitting here in my secret place reflecting on the events of yesterday when it occurred to me that everyone around me on a daily basis are not all  Christians. Then I started to think about all the individuals who don’t believe in God at all; what if they’re wrong? Then there are those who believe in God but are wondering if you should give your heart to Jesus. What if everything you were taught all your life is wrong and that stuff in the bible is just a nice group of stories? I instantly thought about what scripture says about salvation in the book of Romans 10:1-13 which talks to the people of Israel on the subject. Let it speak to you today. First we pray.


(This is an individual Prayer)

Father, I sing unto You today. I lift my voice in praise. My voice may be a joyful “noise” to others, but to You, it is praise from my heart and my lips. I sing a song to Your faithfulness, Your loving-kindness, Your steadfastness, Your power and Your wondrous works, Your awesome miracles, Your mercy and grace. I thank You my sweet Jesus, for saving my soul and setting me on higher ground. You are beautiful, majestic, worthy of all praise and worship. You are everything and in You everything exists. Hallelujah, You reign in heaven and in my heart! I thank You and love You. In Your name I pray, Amen.



Romans 10:1-13

1 Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved. I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law. For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God.

Salvation Is for Everyone

For Moses writes that the law’s way of making a person right with God requires obedience to all of its commands. But faith’s way of getting right with God says, “Don’t say in your heart, ‘Who will go up to heaven?’ (to bring Christ down to earth). And don’t say, ‘Who will go down to the place of the dead?’ (to bring Christ back to life again).” In fact, it says,

“The message is very close at hand;
    it is on your lips and in your heart.”

And that message is the very message about faith that we preach: If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. 11 As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” 12 Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. 13 For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

I will leave you with one final thing; if you are living this life like there is no God at all, you better be right.

Chew on that for awhile. Blessings on ya!


These large birds, [cranes] that fly great distances across Continents, have three remarkable qualities. First, they rotate Leadership; No one bird stays out in front all the time. Second, they choose leaders who can handle turbulence. And then, all during the time one bird is leading, the rest are honking their affirmation. That’s not a bad model for the church. Certainly we need leaders who can handle turbulence and who are aware that leadership ought to be shared. But most of all, we need a church where we are all honking encouragement. ~Bruce Larson~
