Thank you Lord for another year to celebrate life and for this wonderful birthday message! 🙂

change-the-worldOn several occasions I have been encouraged  when men I knew to be dishonest and immoral agreed to talk me about their conduct. Yet each time I was disappointed at the outcome of our meetings.

In each situation the person said he believed in God and wanted to escape hell. Some rationalized by saying everybody, even churchgoing people, are basically selfish. They do good only to escape punishment. Those who reasoned this way believed that because they sometimes were kind and generously to charitable causes, their chances of going to heaven were as good as those of the Christians they knew. One man vowed that he would do kind. But like the others, he wanted to have eternal life without the forgiveness and inner change that only Jesus can give.

The apostle Paul told Timothy how to deal with religionists who focused on externals. He reminded him that the purpose of godly instructions is a life that reflects a radical inner change: “love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith” (1Tim 1:5). Has God changed you from within? You can have a life changing encounter with Jesus if you’ll trust in Him –Herb Vander Lugt

How to be changed from within as easy as A-B-C…

Admit that you are a sinner and turn from your sin.
Believe that Jesus dies for you and rose from the dead.
Call on Him to be your Savior and Lord.

When God changes you, He works from inside out.

The purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from a sincere faith. – 1 Tim 1:5

Read: 1 Timothy 1:1-7

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social networking sites are created to help us connect with our long time friends or with people whom we share the same interest in. But, it also make some of us (or is it just my friends?) feel like a celebrity.

Checking Twitter and Facebook is like reading a newspaper or watching television. Some might feel like they are on a reality tv show or something. Every single drama in their life, you will know, ’cause they freakin’ post it online! I’m not saying that I do not do this, but I filter! People don’t need to know that I am PMSing or that I bought this really sexy lingerie! TMI!!!!

Some things are meant to be kept private, especially your “dirty laundry”. If you do not want people to gossip about your life, then don’t twit your problems! Don’t give them something to talk about behind…
