Matthew 25  5-31-16 — May 31, 2016

Matthew 25  5-31-16

Matthew 25:29  “‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.”

‭‭Short message today….If we have been trusted with little, and prove our faith by trusting Jesus, we will be given more. If we don’t trust in Him, He will not bless us with more! Live in a trusting way!!!! 

Matthew 25  5-30-16 — May 30, 2016

Matthew 25  5-30-16

Matthew 25:23 His lord said to him, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.”
‭‭

The servant had been trusted with a small degree of money. He went out and was able to work with and increase this small, meager amount. Therefore, he was then trusted with a larger amount. Jesus works in a similar way. He gives us a little bit to work with; then, he sees that we can handle a little bit more. And this isn’t just money, it can be trials and tribulations even! Look at this…

Mark 12:42-44 Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadrans. [43] So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; [44] for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood.”

Jesus was showing how this widow had given all she had, for God! She would be blessed; she was trusted with little, and now she can be trusted with a lot! Trust in Jesus for your blessings today!

Matthew 25  5-29-16 — May 29, 2016

Matthew 25  5-29-16

Matthew 25:13  ““Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”

‭‭Are we living in a way that is pleasing to God? Are we looking forward to His return? Do we have an eternal perspective everyday? These are the things to think about as the return of Jesus IS getting closer. No matter how long it may take….it is always closer than yesterday! 😉

Matthew 24  5-28-16 — May 28, 2016

Matthew 24  5-28-16

Matthew 24:50-51  “the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, [51] and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

‭‭This servant was doing evil things because he thought he had plenty of time before his master was due to return. However, the master came back unannounced, and the servant was punished. This is similar to Jesus’ return. We will not know when He is due to return. We just need to live prepared for Him to come! Pray for your heart to be ready today!

Matthew 24  5-27-16 — May 27, 2016

Matthew 24  5-27-16

Matthew 24:31  “And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

‭‭Jesus is coming again! I cannot wait for that day. In the meantime, what should we be doing???? We need to lead others to follow after Jesus. When Jesus comes back, I want to have a lot of fellow Christians. Pray for a servant’s heart today!

Matthew 24  5-26-16 — May 26, 2016

Matthew 24  5-26-16

Matthew 24:27  “For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”

‭‭Jesus never said he would let us know when He is coming back! He will come when we least expect it. I pray that we all look forward to that day. Let us live in a way that shows others the love of Christ!

Matthew 24  5-25-16 — May 25, 2016

Matthew 24  5-25-16

Matthew 24:21  “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.”

‭‭These days are approaching faster than we realize. No, I am not trying to scare you!! If you have been saved through Christ, I believe you will be protected in some way. However, we should be trying to win those unsaved people to Christ! Let’s go out and be missionaries in the marketplace.

Matthew 24  5-24-16 — May 24, 2016

Matthew 24  5-24-16

Matthew 24:11-13  “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. [12] And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. [13] But he who endures to the end shall be saved.”

‭‭Wow! This sums up the current time now. It is obvious that the ending times are approaching quickly, and may happen within many of our lifetimes. I can’t give a definite time, no human can or ever will. But we can live with an anticipation and an excitement for Jesus to return. I enjoy my life here, but I know that this is not my home! And I look forward to the day when I get to see Jesus! No matter how that happens!!

Revelation 4:8  “The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!””

Matthew 24  5-23-16 — May 23, 2016

Matthew 24  5-23-16

Matthew 24:2  “And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.””

This just goes to show…everything here on this Earth is finite! Jesus is eternal and if we are in him, we have eternal life. However, the things we put in our hope in on Earth will fade…guaranteed! Pray for an eternal perspective.

Matthew 23  5-22-16 — May 22, 2016

Matthew 23  5-22-16

Matthew 23:28  “Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.”

‭‭The Pharisees were good at looking righteous, but they were not good at truly striving for righteousness. Are we putting up a front that makes it look like we have it all together? Or are we truly looking into our own hearts and praying for a heart after God’s own heart! Pray for your heart today.
