The Daily Scroll – Ever Yours

 When I think of you, oh God, creator of all, master of all, I am so amazed. I can barely comprehend you, your majesty, and your goodness. You were always with me. Even when I turned my back, your hand was on my shoulder. When I walk in righteousness my steps are ordered by you. When I walk in the shadow of doubt, your light illuminates my path. How could I even exist without you? You enable me to complete the tasks which you have given me. You never ask me to do anything which I cannot do. You’ve placed within me the miracle of love and obedience. Although it’s against my very nature, you operate through me when I submit to your will. Ever grateful. Ever loving. Ever yours.

The Daily Scroll – Help in Vain

Do you ever feel like the work you do is in vain? Maybe you work with children in church only to see them grow up to be wild teenagers getting in trouble. Maybe you have a child that you did your best to raise in the fear and admonition of the Lord, yet when they grew up they actually resented and  hated you. You know, we’re living in the last days, the days that the Bible said that these thing will happen. Don’t be discouraged. Like Moses, your intentions were good and your work is not in vain. Without your help, the child would never even have a chance. In time it’ll pay off. They’ll come back.

“One day when Moses was forty years old, he decided to visit his relatives, the people of Israel. He saw an Egyptian mistreating an Israelite. So Moses came to the man’s defense and avenged him, killing the Egyptian. Moses assumed his fellow Israelites would realize that God had sent him to rescue them, but they didn’t.“ (Acts 7:23-25)

The Daily Scroll – Shake This Place!

How many Christian conferences have we attended where when we leave, we are the same as when we arrived. How many nice camp meetings we attend are just…nice. We go back to normal life unchanged. Well friends,  we are now in a critical time that requires more than…just the same. We need, really need,  the power and presence of the Holy Spirit of God to shake us. We need the Holy Spirit and fire to accomplish what Almighty God expects in these last days. 

When the early Christians were told by their religious leaders to cease and desist the preaching and power of and by the name of Jesus, they were faced with real life consequences if they disobeyed. They met together and this is what they prayed:

“Give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word. Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” After this prayer, the meeting place shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the word of God with boldness.” (Acts 4:29-31)

May we, the last Christians, go back and seek the boldness and power of the Holy Spirit that was granted the first Christians. – gene

The Daily Scroll – The Friendly Man

 Who is the most friendly man to ever walk the earth? You may be surprised to learn that it was, and is, Jesus. That’s right, the Lord Jesus. When you examine His life, as described in the Bible, this is the only conclusion at which to arrive. He left Heaven to come and find us. And to make us His friends. He lived with us, he suffered, cried, and grieved with us, and then…and then…died in our place. As it says in the Bible, no better friend than one who will give his life for his friend. 

Jesus was a friend to all. He was a friend to, and enjoyed children.  Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)

He was a friend to the common man, even sinners. The Bible says, “And as he reclined at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners were reclining with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many who followed him.” (Mark 2:15)

Don’t be afraid to get to know this friendliest man who ever lived. He’s approachable, loving and kind. 

The Daily Scroll – My Peace

So many people in the world are searching, longing for peace. Nations want peace. Families want peace. Individuals want peace. Yet, it doesn’t come. And when it doesn’t come it doesn’t mean that it’s your fault. You are probably not to blame. For we look for peace in all the wrong places. Some look to jobs, careers, governments, parents, spouses, money. If only……

Peace through efforts in this world either doesn’t come or is fleeting. But real peace, lasting peace, peace that reaches the depths of your soul only comes from one place. And you don’t have to deserve it, earn it, or capture it. True peace comes as a gift from God. He not only gives you Devine peace, he gives you the peace that is from, and belongs to our Savior. The Lord Jesus. 

Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” ( John 14:27)

It doesn’t come from the world or the things of the world, so the world cannot take it from you. This inner spiritual peace comes from your connection to God through Christ Jesus. Take a deep breath and receive His peace. The world wants to distract us in order for us to ignore the gift. Fall upon the love and mercy of God. His peace He gives you. – gene

The Daily Scroll – Save Yourself!

 Yes, save yourself! On the day of Pentecost when the Apostle Peter preached his famous sermon, at which time around 3000 people were saved, he said, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation!” He also said, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 2:38)

Once you become a Christian, beautiful things can happen. The Holy Spirit will empower you to accomplish the life that The Lord gives you. The Holy Spirit gives opportunities to share your faith and life a faith filled life of spiritual adventure. So step away from the unfulfilled carnal life this world gives, and into a glorious life of faith. A life that continues throughout eternity.

The Daily Scroll – Hungry?

Jesus. Sometimes I just have to shake my head when I think of Lord Jesus, His life on earth, and how He does things. Awesome doesn’t touch the magnificence of Jesus. So I shake my head in wonder and praise. You know, when we worship God in church services, we engage physically, but much more is going on. Our spirits, which as Christians have been born again and alive in Christ, is also worshiping God in the best way. Really, you ask? Since God is Spirit, our spiritual connection is what pleases Him, and He looks for that! Jesus tells us the following in the Bible.

“But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23-24)

So therefore in our spiritual lives, are we nourishing our spirit with the Word, the love, and the will of God so that we may worship Him in spiritual strength? Or do we worship Him as malnourished babies barely able to cry Abba?

Then Jesus explained: “My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work. (John 4:34)

Ponder and think on those two scriptures. Measuring up to them will change your life. – gene

The Daily Scroll – Eternal Life?

The simple question to which mankind wants an answer is “How do I attain eternal life?” This question is rooted inside of every individual because when God created mankind, He created him to live forever. But when Adam fell, and all generations within him, the calling to live forever was not removed. We can say, it’s in our DNA to live and not die. Although it broke Gods’ heart, with His great love for us, he enacted a great plan. A plan very costly for Him. The Bible tells it this way,  

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son.” (John 3:16)

“And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.” (John 3:36)

Know that God loves you…and made this way for you to have eternal life. – gene
