Two Great Symbols Of Freedom

If the Son (Jesus Christ)  has set you free you are free indeed.  John 8:36

Freedom is not just our heritage; it's our birthright.  But freedom has a price.  Every generation of Americans has fought its own battles to secure or preserve the freedom we enjoy.  And we will continue to defend the precious gift our forefathers gave us so that we, too, can leave a legacy of freedom to our children.  There will be struggles and setbacks, our own price to pay, but we will prevail.  Future generations will remain free to pursue thier dreams and live out thier destinies in the world and in Christ until His return.  And as we seek Him, may God truly bless America.

Who lives in you?

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.  Galatians 2:20

La Roca

On a recent trip to the State of Queretero in Mexico, south of Mexico City I found my sleeping quarters at the base of the third largest single rock mass in the world that was founded in 1861. I discovered that people came from all over Mexico and the world to climb, photograph and admire this massive rock. Further investigation revealed that in the spring of the year thousands come to celebrate worship and pray on or around La Pena, thinking that such activity will bring good fortune, blessings etc. from God. The name for the rock in spanish is La Roca, and the sad truth is that like those who come to Queretero, many are worshipping the wrong "rock". Jesus Christ is the only rock that is worthy of worship. What or who are you worshipping?

Teaching Moments

Have you ever had one of those teaching moments with your children or a friend that you let slip right through your fingers?  Isaiah 28:10, 13 says line upon line, precept upon precept.  It is a lot easier to get frustrated, and maybe even say things we regret later, than being willing to address the circumstance with a Godly attitude and capture a potential teaching moment.  Monday morning God reminded me of this very thing as I became frustrated, and He had to capture the moment for me.  One of my daughters, who is not a morning person got up late (well I have to take my share of the responcibility, I woke her up 10 min. late), and as result she missed the bus while two of my other children rode off to school.  I had just read to my girls, a passage of scripture, as is our morning routine.  The passage I read from, Proverbs 22:1 says that a good name and favor is better than silver or gold.  Well in the frey I became frustrated, it was messing with my early morning routine, because now I had to take her to school.  As we are riding along we began talking and I had cooled off, and I was suddendly hit with the reality that here I was with my precious daughter for 20 minutes, with a golden opportunity for conversation and a teaching moment.  WOW, did the Holy Spirit ever make me feel about an inch high.  Don't miss teaching moments!  Capture every opportunity to give a life principle line upon line and precept upon precept.  Teaching moments are provided by God.
