Make A New Year!

The Bible book of Mark covers Jesus Christ's ministry, death and resurrection.  

As a child, Mark met Jesus and the apostles when they visited his home and then was a disciple under Peter, Paul and Barnabas as an adult. 

The all power message of love and salvation that Jesus gave this pitiful world is the most important even since its creation.  

Christ is the only role model that teaches humans how to love so well that they can spiritually elevate to know their Creator Parent.

If a person does not like this world, then he or she can rise above it through the resolution of spiritual growth.  

What a new year that would make!

Merry Christ Mas!

In the Bible book of Matthew, the highlights of Jesus Christ's life was described.  

Matthew, a previous tax collector and then disciple of Jesus, knew Him personally and presented this biography in a logical, concise account beginning with His birth.  

Since Christ came here out of love for all of humanity, the Magi journeyed from the east to worship Him.

Jesus Christ is our eternal salvation and physical representation of love.  Every year at this time people from north, south, east and west celebrate the gift of His physical birth into this dark world.  

With the light of Christ leading the way, anyone has the potential for the awesome gift of spiritual awakening all year long.  Hallelujah!!

Answer God's Call

The prophets in the Bible books of Joel, Obadiah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi were devoted to the Lord.  

They all received spiritual information to share with others because they followed His will.  No matter how scary, they had more faith than fear.

All people have the potential to be prophets when they answer God's call to serve.  However, the tricky part is following our Creator and not all the other influences in this world, especially our own egos.  

Only with the Lord can we build our faith enough to overcome the fear.

Suffering Is Good

Jonah was told by the Lord in the Bible book of Jonah to preach in Nineveh.  He refused because these people were his enemies and he wanted them destroyed, not saved.

God did not accept Jonah's response and sent a giant fish to swallow him.  After these very confined quarters, Jonah accepted the assignment and was let out to reluctantly complete his task.

All people, at times, need a shove in the right direction to do good.  If humans did not have a Loving Parent to discipline His children, then spiritual growth would be impossible.

Thank God for the many trials and tribulations everyone gets to experience for the opportunity of spiritual growth.  Without suffering, humanity would be lost.
