“Finishing Well”

Do you know where you are going in your life?

Do you know what it will take to get you there?

How will you know when you have arrived?

What would you like to be remembered for?

I have often been impressed with the way the Apostle Paul summarized his life in: 2 Tim. 4: 6-8

“Rising Above the Storms of Life”

Storms have certainly been in the news a lot lately. There have been many losses as a result of the storms. Some have lost their lives. Many have lost their property. Probably many have lost items they treasured. From many reports, it will take years to rebuild and recover.

You have probably noticed that I have used the word “loss” and “losses” several times. Dr. Norm Wright, who has experienced several losses in his life wrote the following in his book, “Recovering from Losses in Life.” Like a silent conspiracy, we seem to have an unspoken agreement with others not to talk about our losses.

Yet with each and every loss comes the potential for change, growth, new insights, understanding and refinement – all positive descriptions and words of hope. But they are often in the future, and we fail to see that far ahead when we are in the midst of our grief. What great insight Dr. Wright shows in those words.

Scriptures to Strength Your Faith

“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Cor. 10: 3-5

“As is my word that goes out from my mouth; It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills will burst into song before you, and the trees of the field will clap their hands.” Isaiah 55: 11-12

How Do You View God?

John McArthur tells of a student who said to his pastor, “I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t

believe in God.” The pastor replied: “Please tell me about the God you don’t believe in.”

That student began to describe a God who is vengeful, unfair, arbitrary, a cosmic ogre who delighted in watching people stumble through life in search of meaning and direction. After listening to that students’ portrayal of God, the pastor said,” I don’t believe in that God either.” It is so easy to develop a warped view of our God based on our circumstances. We can wind up with a pretty jaded view of God when we define Him by our circumstances.

“The LORD Jesus Christ”

“Jesus” means Savior.

“Christ” means Anointed One.

“LORD” means exactly that – He is our Sovereign LORD and Ruler.

He is our Anointed Savior and LORD. (Dwell on that for a while.)

One of my favorite Bible teacher’s is Harold Willmington. He has written a number of books. The one in front of me right now is, “Willmington’s Complete Guide to Bible Knowledge”. This volume is on the ‘Life of Christ.’

Let me encourage each of us to make much of Jesus and to rejoice in Him.

“How Do You See Yourself As A Christ-follower?”

I know no better place to go than the book of Romans to explore our subject. We are quite sure that Paul had not been to Rome when he wrote this letter. It seems apparent that he had a number of friends there. It is likely that he met some of the church members in other places in his travels. Aquila and Priscilla were some of his dearest friends and it seems likely that the church in Rome was founded by them. Even at that, it seemed that the church had experienced a lot of his spiritual influences.

In verses nine and ten of chapter one, we see how he felt about them and longed to see them –
