    I am always wary of those double left turns at intersections. The driver in one lane does not always remember that another lane is turning also. The potential for a sideswipe is great.

    Jesus answered and said unto her, “whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again; but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life” John 4:13-14.

    In talking with the woman at the well, Jesus spoke of life-giving water. The water of the world can never satisfy the void in the heart of any lost person.

  •  Last week I wrote about how we had better have a battle plan to compete and come our victorious in this life. Yes, we have to strive against a huge enemy that would try and defeat us from reaching our goal. Never underestimate him. I want to repeat 1 Peter 5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour.”

    I have written many times, I don’t believe he can read our mind.

  •  Fincastle United Methodist Church will have a free supper on Jan. 26 at 6 p.m.

  •  “Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times?” (See Matthew 18:21-22, RSV).

    Do you remember the game we played as children – “Rock, Scissors, Paper?” You might recall, “rock beats scissors, scissors cut paper, and paper covers rock”. All three might be dangerous weapons! Have you ever been smashed in the face with a rock? Cut or punctured by scissors? Received a paper cut?

  • “So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. And suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” (I Kings 19:13).

    As we read about the life of Elijah in I Kings, we read about many miracles of God that came through his service as he went and did according to the word of the Lord.

  •    “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also”(2 Corinthians 2:2).

  • Our enemy would want us to believe that if we have problems, or things aren’t going well in our lives at the time, the God does not hear us.

    That is a lie from the devil, Satan, our enemy or whatever you choose to call him. He is real and very active, especially when he sees our doubt.

  •    “You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven”(Matthew 5:13-16).

  •  “. . . My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt” (See Matthew 26:36-42, RSV).

     

     Sincere Christians are genuinely interested in knowing and doing the will of God. A great pastor once said, “To know the will of God is the greatest knowledge, and to do the will of God is the greatest achievement.”

  • The second chapter of Exodus tells us of the faith of the mother of Moses. His mother’s name was Jochebed (Exodus 6:20).

    The king of Egypt had given the order that all the Hebrew baby boys that were born should be killed by throwing them into the Nile River.

    We read in Hebrews 11:23, It was by faith that Moses’ parents hid him for three months. They saw that God had given them an unusual child and they were not afraid of what the King might do.
