Faith in God

Faith is the substance of things hoped for. Hebrews 11:1

 Faith must have an object. We don't simply have faith; we have faith in something or someone. Faith in "faith" is meaningless.
 For the Christian there is only one object for faith: the living God. Anything less is insubstantial, unreal, even deceptive. Our faith is in the God who created this world and came down to earth  in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ. We put our faith in Christ because He alone is the Savior. The Bible says, "Through Him (you) believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God" (1 Peter 1:21).
 People today put their faith in all kinds of ideas and beliefs, from astrology and alleged "spirit guides" to science and humanism. But only Christ reveals God to us, and only He can bridge the gap between us and God a gap caused by sin. Do not be deceived or misled. Only Christ is worthy of your faith.

Christ Is Coming Again :)

 Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our...Savior Jesus Christ.   Titus 2:13

  One of the best ways to get rid of discouragement is to remember that Christ is coming again. What is happening in your life right now is not going to last forever!
  The most thrilling, glorious truth in all the world is the second coming of Jesus Christ. When we look about today and see pessimism on every side, we should remember the Bible is the only book in the world that reliably predicts the future. The Bible is more modern than tomorrow's newspaper. It says the consummation of all things shall be the coming again of Jesus Christ to this earth.
  This truth gives us hope but it should also sober us and make us more diligent. After all, we do not know when Christ will return. Jesus Himself said, "Of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only" (Matt. 24:36). Believing in the return of Christ doesn't make us less less concerned about this world; it makes us more concerned, because we know time may be short. Now is the time to live for Christ and witness for Him.

Compassion and Love

Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.   1 John 4:11

  Charles Allen once made this statement: "some people seem to have such a passion for righteousness that they have no room left for compassion for those who have failed."
  I pray that would never be true of us. God, our Father, has shown us such great kindness and gentle mercy. May we ever reach out to the lost in compassion and love to bring them gently to Jesus Christ. Jesus, "when He saw the multitudes....was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd"  (Matt. 9:36).
  Let me share these lines from an unknown poet:
     Just to be tender, just to be true,
     Just to be glad the whole day through,
     Just to be merciful, just to mild,
     Just to be trustful as a child:
     Just to be gentle and kind and sweet,
     Just to be helpful with willing feet...
     Just to let love be our daily key,
     That is God's will for you and me.
