So Much Easier...

God cares for you, so turn all your worries over to him. -1 Peter 5:7 (CEV)
In some circles, you will often hear the phrase "let go and let God." I can remember a time in my life when I might have asked why God would want to help me after the things I had done-- the way I treated people and the way I ignored Him. I have come to learn, however, that there is nothing I have done that is too much for the blood of Jesus to handle. A preacher that we sometimes watch on television once remarked that we cannot allow Satan to "pull our sins out from under the blood of Jesus." Good advice. Satan certainly wants us to think there is no way we can ever be good enough to inherit God's kingdom. And he's right-- there is no way we can be good enough. Fortunately, Jesus is good enough and He paid the ultimate price for us to rightfully inherit the kingdom. So the next time that Satan wants to remind you of your past, remind him of his future!

It's "Kettle Season" for the Salvation Army once again. Please... when you hear the bell and see the kettle, remember how important the work they do for the kingdom is and give as generously as you possibly can. We are blessed the most when we are blessing others, don't you agree?

Slavery

Jesus responded, “I assure you: Everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin. -John 8:34 (HCSB)

All too often, Christians may feel constrained by their faith and what they know to be the expectations of their Heavenly Father. Sometimes, in certain churches, the list of "don'ts" may seem longer than the ancient laws of Israel. Occasionally 'religious' people will sadly get caught up in that sort of thing. That can be a turn-off for many people and a valuable asset to the enemy, who wants you to feel bound by law and a slave to some sort of religious creed. The God I know and love is a God of freedom. I am freer as a slave to Christ than I ever was as a slave to sin. How about you? Are you free in Christ or bound by sin?

Just a bit of DISGUST...

I've got to admit I expected more from the do-nothing body we call Congress with its GOP majority at present. Instead, we got more of the same old tired rhetoric we have been getting for the past 7+ years now about how terrible Obamacare is.

The plan they managed to produce after all this time (Paul Ryan's) is not much better than what is in place and apparently leaves a lot of middle-class people financially screwed. I understand it polled with a 17% approval rate. All I know is the many votes over the past few years to repeal it were nothing more than political grandstanding --  a waste of time and taxpayer money. All the Republicans seem to be able to do is criticize and come up with little to offer themselves. They cannot even seem to reach a consensus among themselves (a problem they have had as long as I can remember).

Personally, I have felt for a long time that they should simply fix what is in place so it works better and offers more flexibility with lower costs. I th…

Get On With It!

When we learned last night of the appointment of special counsel to look into the accusations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, we were initially impressed with the measured response from the President. However, as I stated to my wife last night, I would have been surprised if that didn't all change by morning. And so it did. Why can't he leave leave matters alone and keep his fingers off of his smartphone or whatever gadget he uses to bombard Twitter with tweets that signify immaturity and are often caustic, to say the least?

I think if I were President Trump or on his staff I would welcome a special counsel investigation of the matter to put it to bed once and for all. Of course, I offer that with a presumption that he is innocent of accusations that have so far come without any evidence. Robert Mueller's credentials are basically impeccable and he is known as a man who will get to the bottom of things and follow the trail wherever it leads -- not…
