TREASURES FROM GODS WORD
 

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. (Psalm 37:3)
Trust and do are words which go well together, in the order in which the Holy Spirit has placed them. We should have faith, and that faith should work. Trust in God sets us upon holy doing: we trust God for good, and then we do good. We do not sit still because we trust, but we arouse ourselves and expect the Lord to work through us and by us. It is not ours to worry and do evil but to trust and do good. We neither trust without doing nor do without trusting.
Adversaries would root us out if they could; but by trusting and doing we dwell in the land. We will not go into Egypt, but we will remain in Immanuel's land-the providence of God, the Canaan of covenant love. We are not so easily to be got rid of as the Lord's enemies suppose. They cannot thrust us Out nor stamp us out: where God has given us a name and a place, there we abide.
But what about the supply of our necessities? The Lord has put a "verily" into this promise. As sure as God is true, His people shall be fed. It is theirs to trust and to do, and it is the Lord's to do according to their trust. If not fed by ravens, or fed by an Obadiah, or fed by a widow, yet they shall be fed somehow. Away, ye fears!



 
DAILY PROMISE FROM GODS WORD


Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. (Romans 5:9)

You are made right, O believer, in the blood of Christ! The curse of Adam-that damnation unquenchable-has sloughed its hell-weight from upon your shoulders and its death-strike shall not fell your head! No, it has fallen upon another: the Christ! His righteousness is made yours, and more: so too His salvation! No simple justification is the believer's mere claim, but life-life eternal! Rejoice therefore, O believer, in the princely salvation made yours by the blood of God Himself!




 
 
May GOD Bless each and every one of you through this Holiday Season. May we all come to the full realization of who GOD is and what HE did on the cross at calvary to secure our eternal salvation and allow "whosoever will" to become a child of THE KING.
 
Stay in the fight.
Rest, if you have to, but don't quit.
May God Bless and Keep you
Bob Messer
Pastor

There is only one way to Heaven

Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me." (John 14:6) http://blb.sc/002Vj3

Good works cannot save you.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)  http://blb.sc/002UZQ

Trust Jesus Christ today! Here's what you must do:

  1. Confess to God that you are a sinner, in need of a savior.

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (Romans 3:23)   http://blb.sc/002T3j

"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" (Romans 5:12) http://blb.sc/002Uqg

"If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."

 (1 John 1:10)  http://blb.sc/002NZl

2           Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) http://blb.sc/002KIL

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) http://blb.sc/002Uqg

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:9)  http://blb.sc/002O5E

Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Saviour.

"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:10)  http://blb.sc/002O5E

3     Turn from sin and Repent

Jesus said: "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."

(Luke 13:5)  http://blb.sc/002q2Q

"And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:" (Acts 17:30) http://blb.sc/002SM0

 

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

 (Romans 10:13)   http://blb.sc/002O5E

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" (John 1:12)  http://blb.sc/002NJc

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17)  http://blb.sc/002N2S


If you have received Jesus Christ as your Saviour, as a Christian you should:

  1. Read your Bible every day to get to know Christ better.

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)  http://blb.sc/002S3B

"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." (Psalms 119:105)  http://blb.sc/002y1g

  1. Talk to God in prayer every day.

"And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

" (Matthew 21:22)  http://blb.sc/002bwg

"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." (Philippians 4:6)  http://blb.sc/002Vby

  1. Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority.

"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (Matthew 28:19)  http://blb.sc/002mxR

"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."
  (Hebrews 10:25)  http://blb.sc/002Pal  

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" (2 Timothy 3:16)  http://blb.sc/002RWu

  1. Tell others about Christ.

"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15)  http://blb.sc/0036hZ  

"For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!" (1 Corinthians 9:16)  http://blb.sc/002v2C

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (Romans 1:16)  http://blb.sc/002StL
