have you ever been asked to take a message to someone and you knew that if you did there was a good chance that they would be upset with you? Your try getting out of it because you don't like conflict but the sender managers to convince you that you must help them. As members of the family of God, Christians are expected to carry his message throughout the world and right here in your own back yard. Sadly many recipients are quick to choose killing the messenger rather than accepting the message. While the task can be a dangerous one, the job still has to be done and with the protection that we are afforded we will succeed.
Nobody likes to consider themselves as a failure, at least most of us don't, yet it seems as though every time we are tempted by the great deceiver and we fall for his lies, it's all about what a failure we are. With upcoming events sure to be much worse than they are today, we must find a way to deal with these weaknesses while getting stronger in the eyes of our Creator. I have had a few conversations with friends who openly admit that they crossed the line and shamefully disgraced their position in the body of Christ, let me assure you that incidents like that one will continue to plague us until the last days. The mistake we will make is allowing Satan to use those instances to make us weaker.

For those who do not already know, temptation is an act of Satan and not our Creator. Fighting temptations can be one of the most difficult things to do if you do not have the Holy Spirit on your side and even then it is next to impossible. After Jesus was tempted Himself by the great deceiver, He realized how difficult it was for him and while that does not give us a free pass to sin as we want to, we must still deal with the issues of temptation as a child of God. The great thing about our slips and slides is the fact that we have already been forgiven, however, we must ask for that forgiveness through the blood of our Savior.

If you ever come close to experiencing death, chances are that you will know just what I am talking about. It is at this time that we realize just how mortal and vulnerable we can be. I have heard the question many times where a non believer is asked if they can be sure that with a gun to their head that at the next step they will be opening their eyes in heaven. It is usually at this point that it dawns on us that we must do something. It seems as though when contact is made through the Holy Spirit, it is only then that we give our life to Jesus Christ.

Everywhere you turn you can see individuals that care little or nothing about how they communicate with others. As they leave the comforts of their own homes they dress as though their parents cannot afford to provide them with appropriate clothing. The new fashion by many teenagers is wearing the pants down by their knees an act that simply shows that they are losing respect for anyone but themselves. When someone is looking to be respected by others they should always remember that it is how they treat others they will be treated. If you disrespect others (and yourself) then don't be surprised when others don't show you that respect.

I recently posted a video entitled beautiful colors which I managed to produce from an email that came to me, what struck me as extremely positive about this video was the way it centered around the reason why we can appreciate all this beauty. When you really stop and think about it there is no comparison to the beauty that our Creator has placed in front of us. Human beings have a way of taking credit for everything around them whether it is the buildings that they create or a painting that resulted from the flowing of creative juices. The bottom line is, if God did not give us the ability to do all of this we would be failures, so maybe we should consider acknowledging His part in all of this.

I believe there is a song with “never to return again” in the lyrics and I guess if you really think about it, that can be such a final statement. There is no doubt that we all find ourselves in a situation at one time or another where we just want to get up and leave, never to look back. Thankfully when Jesus Christ left this earth so many years ago He assured us that he would return again. Unlike others who try to run away to avoid confrontations by running away, the reason for His leaving was to prepare a place for us to to spend the rest of eternity.
There are many people in this country who are in need of food and a roof over their heads. Helping to support the poor is one of the most vital things that a Christian can do. Donations are one way that we can help provide services to the needy while volunteering our time can not only help the needy but provide us with a certain level of personal satisfaction in the bargain. Almost anywhere you turn you can run across homeless people who have no way of taking care of themselves. Sadly society has allowed these individuals to fall by the wayside while the world moves onwards, what an unfortunate life they must live.
Any relationship we eventually find ourselves in can end up on the chopping block for early termination. One relationship that should never be terminated is the one between a mother and her unborn child. On the other hand there are some relationships that should not be included within our portfolio and those are the ones that include the great deceiver. Satan is always prepared to torment and encourage us into his fold, so if we are thinking of terminating the relationship with anyone, it should be him. All others should be endured through time, except the ones that are contrary to our Christian beliefs
