        When Jesus died on the cross he was thinking of you!                      THE U IN JESUS           Before U were thought of or time had begun, God stuck U in the name of His Son.           And each time U pray, you'll see it's true, You can't spell out JesUs and not include U.           You're a pretty big part of His wonderful name, For U, He was born; that's why He came.         And His great love for U is the reason He died. It even takes U to spell crUcified.         Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand He rose from the dead, with U in His plan?         The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew, and this word resUrrection is spelled with a U.             When JesUs left earth at His upward ascension, He felt there was one thing He just had to mention.       "Go into the world and tell them it's true That I love them all - Just like I love U."       So many great people are spelled with a U, Don't they have a right to know JesUs too?       It all depends now on what U will do, He'd like them to know, But it all starts with U.

    God Repays

    ==============================================                                 Faith's Checkbook by C.H. Spurgeon                        Friday April 21, 2006                 http://bible.christiansunite.com/devotionals.shtml ============================================== God Repays He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. (Proverbs 19:17) We are to give to the poor out of pity. Not to be seen and applauded, much less to get influence over them; but out of pure sympathy and compassion we must give them help. We must not expect to get anything back from the poor, not even gratitude; but we should regard what we have done as a loan to the Lord. He undertakes the obligation, and, if we look to Him in the matter, we must not look to the second party. What an honor the Lord bestows upon us when He condescends to borrow of us! That merchant is greatly favored who has the Lord on his books. It would seem a pity to have such a name down for a paltry pittance; let us make it a heavy amount. The next needy man that comes this way, let us help him. As for repayment, we can hardly think of it, and yet here is the Lord's note of hand. Blessed be His name, His promise to pay is better than gold and silver. Are we running a little short through the depression of the times? We may venture humbly to present this bill at the bank of faith, Has any one of our readers [oppressed] the poor? Poor soul. May the Lord forgive him.

    Mere Human Effort Will Not Get Us Anywhere

      THE DANGER WE FACE IS WHEN WE TRY TO DUPLICATE THROUGH MERE HUMAN EFFORTS WHAT CAN ONLY BE PRODUCED BY GOD! Preachers get into trouble when they learn how to preach! Singers get into trouble when they learn how to sing! Teachers get into trouble when they learn how to teach! We must never reach the point where we learn how to do what only God can do! I am never going to become so smart that I don't need God!   2312 Simpson's Most Valuable Discovery In the year 1847 a doctor from Edinburgh Sir James Simpson discovered that chloroform could be used as an anaesthetic to render people insensible to the pain of surgery. From his early experiments Dr. Simpson made it possible for people to go through the most dangerous operations without fear of pain and suffering. Some people even claim that his was one of the most significant discoveries of modern medicine. Some years later while lecturing at the University of Edinburgh Dr. Simpson was asked by one of his students What do you consider to be the most valuable discovery of your lifetime? To the surprise of his students who had expected him to refer to chloroform Dr. Simpson replied My most valuable discovery was when I discovered myself a sinner and that Jesus Christ was my Saviour.   The most valuable discovery that you and I can make this morning is this: No matter how smart I am No matter how well I can preach No matter how well I can organize   I am still just a sinner saved by grace! I NEED JESUS!

    God Can Use Anyone

      God Can Use Anyone Moses stuttered. David's armour didn't fit. John Mark was rejected by Paul. Timothy had ulcers. Amos' only training was in the school of fig-tree pruning. Jacob was a liar. David had an affair. Solomon was too rich. Abraham was too old. David was too young. Peter was afraid of death. Lazarus was dead. John was self-righteous. Naomi was a widow. Paul was a murderer. So was Moses. Jonah ran from God. Miriam was a gossip. Gideon and Thomas both doubted. Jeremiah was a bullfrog; Just kidding -- he was depressed and suicidal. Elijah was burned out. Martha was a worry-wart. Mary may have been lazy. Samson had long hair. Noah got drunk and that's not all. Did I mention that Moses had a short fuse? But God doesn't require a job interview. He doesn't hire and fire like most bosses because He's more our Dad than our Boss. He doesn't look at financial gain or loss. He's not prejudiced or partial not judging grudging sassy or brassy not deaf to our cry not blind to our need.   I did not write the above, I had gotten this a while ago in an email message. It shows that many great people in the Bible had sinned. It shows they these great people were not perfect. Just as I had stated in one of my earlier postings, nobody is perfect and God knows and understands that. I know I am not even close to being perfect. As I look at the "faults" of the above men men and women, I realize that I am a combination of most of them. I have faulted just like each and every one of them. I know other people are not perfect, so I cannot judge anybody for his or her mistakes-both past and present.
