          Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. Ephesians 5:1-2 NKJV

    Whatever the Cost.



    Freedom does not come at no cost, Let us forever remember the ones who paid the price for our freedom. The service men and women of America. We thank everyone who fights and dies for our freedom. But we must also give thanks to our Savior who died for our freedom from sins. Thank You Lord for our freedom, may we continue to be a nation under God at whatever the cost.

    Romans 6:22 But now, being made free from sin, and having become slaves to God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end everlasting life.

    The Joy Of Children



    Have you ever noticed how much more alive a church or home seems when it is filled with children running laughing, playing, and learning. It just seems like something is missing from a church when there are no children present. Jesus was much displeased when He discovered the disciples were keeping the children from approaching Him. He knew it was the childlike faith, childlike joy,, and childlike acceptance, that people needed to see to understand the relationship that there is between a loving Heavenly Father and the people He longs to embrace. Children may sap our strength test our patience; but they also provide the energy and enthusiasm to brighten even the darkest days. –But when Jesus saw it, He was much displeased, and said unto them , suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Mark 10: 14…….

    Emptiness



    Vanity, emptiness. We see it all around us today. But this is nothing new in the history of mankind. While excavating Roman ruins, archaeologists kept coming across the inscription “NFFNSNC.” They finally determined that the initials reflected the pagan philosophy of the Romans: “I was not, I was, I am not, I do not care.” In other words,life is empty, meaningless, void. But there is one who is, who was, and does care. He cared enough to give His life that we could be saved. His name Jesus Christ.

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.

    Romans 5:1 Being therefore justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ;

    Abiding, In Christ



    A small boy who was very fond of his father loved to join him wherever he went. One day while his dad was engaged in intensive study, the youngster tapped at his office door. “Well, my little man, what do you want now?” “Nothing, Daddy, I just want to be near you.”Receiving permission to come in, the boy made his way to a far corner of the room and sat quietly for a long time. He was content just to be alone with his father. I wonder, is this the kind of love we have toward God? Do we often go to the Savior, even when we don’t want anything, just to be near Him? If we abide in close fellowship with Christ, we will be greatly blessed and bear rich and abundant “fruit.” 

    Matthew 11:28-30, Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

    29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

    30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

    Over the Sunset Mountains



    The beloved hymn “Over the Sunset Mountains” was penned during the writer’s meditation on the piano. Sure that its message would catch on Peterson confidently approached publisher. “We would like to use  it,” the approving publisher said after glancing over it, “but we have one little suggestion. Can you take out this reference to Jesus and enlarge a little more on heaven?” Heaven without Jesus? Unthinkable! Clutching his manuscript, the composer walked from the publisher’s office with another song coming on: “I Have No Song to Sing, but that of Christ, my King.” Both songs have become favorites with Christians.  John 3:13 And no one hath ascended into heaven, but he that descended out of heaven, even the Son of man, who is in heaven.

    Righteous



    Righteous art thou O LORD, And upright are thy judgements Psalm 119:137…. This passage of scripture reminds us that our God is righteous. His righteousness will not end. You and I can be upright for a period of time, but we cannot maintain that forever. He can. He is just and and honorable. He acts according to what is right. His judgements are right. Who better to judge than He who knows the hearts of all people? When we are worried or angered when something isn’t right, we need to just take it to the Lord. He is righteous always . He knows what is true, and His judgements are based upon truth. As did the psalmist, we neeed to trust Gods nature, delight in His Word, and ask for understanding.

    The Mountain Conclusion



    When the Glory of the Mountain Fades, Jesus is Still There

    Luke 9:36 

    And when the voice occurred, Jesus was found alone. And they were silent, and told no one in those days anything which they had seen. 

    When the voice spoke, the disciples fear and fall on their faces before God, afraid to even peek. But Jesus approaches them, the other Gospels tell us, and touches them, telling them not to fear. When they do look up they saw Jesus only. There is no more cloud of glory. There is no more voice of God. Moses is gone. Elijah is gone. Everything is back to normal. One can easily imagine their hearts sinking in disappointment. But here we learn one of the most important lessons of the mountain: Jesus is not only necessary; Jesus is enough. Though the thrill and the glory was gone, Jesus was still there. Jesus is present and more than adequate especially when we are not on the mountain.

    This concludes the mini sermon God On The Mountain. Hope you recieved a blessing from this message.-----------------Bro Larry

    The Mountain Parts 4 and 5



    4. When You are on the Mountain, You’ll Want to Stay There

    “Then it happened, as they were parting from Him, that Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah”– not knowing what he said.”Luke 9: 33

    Here comes Peter with that big mouth of His, saying what the rest of us are thinking, but don’t have the gumption to say out loud. Jesus, He says, this is great; let’s just stay right here. We’ll put up one tent for Moses and one for Elijah and one for You. As Ray Stedman put it, we’ll just make this mountain our new world-wide headquarters. They are having a thrilling experience; who wouldn’t want to keep it going? One should be prepared for this emotion and reaction while on the mountain.

    5. Your Time on the Mountain is a Time for Reverence

    “While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were fearful as they entered the cloud. And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, ‘This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!’”Luke 9:34-35

    While Peter is still running his big mouth, the Shikanah descended upon them. The luminescent glory of God descended upon Jesus and Moses and Elijah. A voice comes out of the cloud, and said, “This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!” They hear the voice of God! And the Father instructs the disciples to be quiet and listen. Sometimes when we are on the mountain, it is a temptation to be full of ourselves and to mistake that for being full of Jesus. We are simply so thrilled about it all, that we get hyper and begin to sense a self-confidence which is not warranted. The lesson here is to humbly learn at the feet of Jesus and not offer God any “brilliant” ideas of the flesh.

    The Mountain Part 3



    When You are on The Mountain God Will Ready You For Your Mission:

    “And behold, two men talked with Him, who were Moses and Elijah, who appeared in glory and spoke of His decease which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem” Luke 9: 30-31

    Jesus was six months from the cross. In His humanity He would need encouragement and confirmation for the task. He is on track. But, as a man, He has emotions. He, as man, is being readied for His mission. Notice this phrase: “His decease which He was about to accomplish.” Not many would speak of their death as an accomplishment. Yet, that was Christ’s mission to accomplish… to go to the cross as the sacrifice for the sins of the world. So to prepare Him for the task the Father sends Moses and Elijah. Moses, the man of the Law. Elijah, from among the prophets. Moses had died without entering the promised land, now stands on the terra firma of the land of promise. Wiersbe points out that it could be the greatest Bible conference ever. When God takes us to the mountain He is preparing us for our mission also. Some of the ways this may happen is in:

    Visualization - That is, we get a picture of what it is God wants us to do.

    Clarification - It has been said that the Lord can strike a mighty blow with a crooked stick, but sometimes God will straighten out the stick to strike an even mightier blow. We can have a general idea of the ministry God has given us, a little clarification is in order.

    Preparation - Sometimes God has to prepare us spiritually, to clean sin out of our lives to make us fit and useful vessels.

    Anticipation - Often, we come down from the mountain with fresh zeal for the mission; we are anticipatory.

    The Mountain Part 2



    When you get to the mountain, you”ll se Jesus like you never seen Him Before.  As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glisting.Luke 9:29. Jesus came to earth with His glory veiled, but now for a brief moment, the veil is pulled back. The word in Matthew is transfigured and the word where we get metamorphis. It describes the outward apperance of inner reality. In the will of the Father, the real Jesus  was shinning in radiant glory. Peter, John, and James are seeing Jesus in a way like they have never seen Him before. That is what happens to us on the mountain. The viel is pulled back and we get an insight into the person of Christ like we have never had before.

    The Mountain



    Believers know the experience of the mountain. We all have been there. It may have been on a mission trip or a series of revival services or a youth camp. Yet anyone who has walked with God for anytime has been to the mountain. As we look back on such experiences in the past and as we anticipate such experiences in the future, Here are some Biblical principles.

    1- You will get to the mountain only when Jesus takes you there. Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that he took Peter John, and James and went up to the mountain to pray..Luke 9:28

    A REFUGE FOR OPPRESSED PEOPLE



    .....When we are troubled and everyone is from time to time, if we would just keep in mind that as Christians, bought with the blood of Christ, we know that God loves us. But sometimes we take him for granted, and think its His obligation to love us. We sometimes depend on other people instead of God; but they are not perfect and  will sometimes let us down. God is the Only one in whom we can  fully trust and find refuge. He is a safe house for the weary and worn, and He never abandons His own......The LORD will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Psalm 9:9
