*A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word
stirs up anger. --Proverbs 15


When the waitress in a New York City restaurant brought him
the soup du jour, the Englishman was a bit dismayed.

"Good heavens," he said, "what is this?"

"Why, it's bean soup," she replied.

"I don't care what it's been," he replied. "What is it now?"


* Blessed Are Those Who Mourn...

After spending over a year in captivity at the hands of
Philippine rebels, the two American missionaries, Martin and
Gracia Burnham, were shot. Though Gracia was wounded and
taken to safety by military officials, her husband died in
the firefight. A nurse was also killed, along with several
hostages who were beheaded and sold for ransom earlier this
year. We extend our sympathy and condolences to the Burnham
family. Their dedication and sacrifice was of eternal
value, and we pray that still more hearts will be touched by
their love of the Lord.

An American held hostage in the Philippines was killed on
Friday during a gun battle between his captors and Filipino
soldiers. His wife was wounded in the battle.

Because we lived along the East Coast for so many years, we've had
the opportunity to see many of America's old lighthouses. I love them. But
not long ago we came up over the top of a hill on an interstate and I saw
what I certainly never expected to see hundreds of miles from any ocean. It
was a lighthouse. With a bright, functioning light on top. Obviously, it
wasn't there to point any ships in the right direction. Actually, it was
part of a church that stands right near the highway. See, this lighthouse
is for people!

It seems to me that Jesus intended for every church to be a
lighthouse, whether or not they have a lighted tower as part of their
building. And He intended for every Christian to be a lighthouse, every
ministry. Tragically, with so many lives around us headed for disaster,
there is a terrible lighthouse shortage.

We know that Jesus said that those who belong to Him are "the light
of the world." (Matthew 5:16) And Matthew 4:16, our word for today from
the Word of God, tells us which direction our light should be pointing.
Jesus says, "The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those
living in the land of the shadow of death, a light has dawned." See, it's
the people in spiritual darkness, the people who are spiritually dying who
should be the focus of all this light God has given us.

The problem is that often we are content to have all the lights
inside the church, shining on those who are already headed for heaven.
Meanwhile, we let countless lost people just get another day closer to hell.
We do what's easy - we just work with the sheep who are already in - when
Jesus said He would leave ninety-nine of those just to go out and find one
lost one. But notice - you have to go out to find them. You can't just
stay in the Christian cocoon waiting for someone to stick their head in the
door and say, "Excuse me, but is there any light in here?" The lighthouse
needs to be out where they are!

We can go to all our Christian meetings, fellowship with all our
Christian friends, enjoy all our Christian books and programs, and we feel
like we must be winning. Not when two-thirds of Americans can't tell you
half of the Ten Commandments or who did the Sermon on the Mount! Not when
the number of people who say they believe in nothing has doubled in the last
ten years - and the number of those who are self-declared witches has grown
over 1,500% in the past decade. Even in one Bible Belt state, the statistics
just came in - two-thirds of the people even there are essentially
unchurched! You have working near you, living near you, going to school with
you people who have no idea that what Jesus did on the cross was for them
and that He's their only hope! If our Christian subculture makes us feel
like we're winning, it's the illusion of winning.

How can we be content to spend all our time with the already-rescued
when we are living surrounded by a sea of dying people? How can we say that
we are following the One who came, as He said, to "seek and save what was
lost" - and not be doing that with all our heart? If you're following
Jesus, I'll tell you where He's going. He's always headed for a sea of lost
people. That should be where we end up too. Oh, it's bright inside the
lighthouse, but it's very dark outside the walls.

So many headed for eternal destruction - they desperately need a
lighthouse that is out where they are, pointing them to life in Jesus
Christ. Be their lighthouse!

A real-estate agent was driving around with a new trainee when she
spotted a charming little farmhouse with a hand-lettered "For Sale"
sign out front.

After briskly introducing herself and her associate to the startled
occupant, the agent cruised from room to room, opening closets and
cupboards, testing faucets and pointing out where a "new light fixture
here and a little paint there" would help. Pleased with her
assertiveness, the woman was hopeful that the owner would offer her
the listing.

"Ma'am," the man said, "I appreciate the home-improvement tips and
all, but I think you read my sign wrong. It says, "HORSE for sale."


*The Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud
command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet
call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After
that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up
together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And so we will be with the Lord forever. --1 Thessalonians 4

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so 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 hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
