It's a brand new day! Lets receive a fresh fill up from His presence today and bless Him and others all day long. We were created to be blessed and to be a blessing. Much love!

Matthew 28:19-20  

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


Message from the Minister

Hello again from Tannersville Church of Christ. What voices are you listening to? We often hear voices, we call it our conscience or our "inner person." We are told in Romans 8:14 " For as many are led by the spirit of God they are the sons of God." So God does lead His children. God spoke to Jonah and Jonah failed to heed and suffered for it, Israel failed to heed the voice of God and suffered 40 yrs in the wilderness, never seeing the Promised Land, and later failed to listen again wound up in Babylonian captivity. What is God speaking to you today? God will be heard. Let's endeavor to be listeners and doers of God's will. God said in Isaiah 46:9-10....Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
God is speaking, are you listening?
May God richly Bless each and everyone of you, and may His voice softly speak to you and give you His grace to listen.

 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

When I come to the Cross- Images               of Sorrow and Joy:

Scholars have suggested two details about the cross that I have found intriguing. One has to do with where the cross might have been placed. Some suggest it was not erected at the top of Golgotha but at the base. This is in keeping with crucifixions taking place in busy thoroughfares, but it puts the cross too close to an unconcerned, gawking public for my comfort. It puts it, for that matter, too close to me. The second detail some scholars suggest is that Jesus might have been hung only a few feet above the ground. The imagery of “high and lifted up” is still appropriate, but Jesus might not have been nearly as high as I've always imagined, not nearly high enough, again, for my comfort.  No, these two suppositions make Jesus and all his suffering and shame much too close. But once I assimilated these propositions, I began to imagine a scenario that has blessed me. (Such imagining is the writer in me, I guess.) Actually, it is more an image than a scene, and I think of it most often when we partake of the Lord’s Supper. I come to the foot of the cross and embrace the bloody body of Jesus. I stand there in that embrace, becoming bloody myself in the process, not saying anything, for speaking would be impossible. I just come, loving him and thanking him.

When this image is before me, I sometimes do more than wipe away tears. I recall the commitments Jesus made to God and man when he chose the cross—the commitment to do God’s will, to trust him, to love and care for others, to suffer when necessary, and to finish the task of redeeming us.

Such incredible commitments. Love compels me to make such commitments, or to try very hard to make them. Hope compels me as well—the hope of a second image. I am standing on the hillside watching our victorious risen Lord ascend to his Father, knowing full well he will return for us. And when he does, shame and suffering and sorrow will be replaced with honor and glory and ecstasy. When I bring this image to mind, I can’t wipe the smile off my face.  “Do this,” Jesus said, “in remembrance of me.”

When you partake today, remember images of incomparable sorrow and joy.

Daily Devotion

John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Jesus says that if we abide in Him and His word abides in us then we can ask for anything we want and it will be given to us. That's a beautiful thing. Even more beautiful is the wisdom and knowledge and love that comes from abiding in Him and in His Word.

Keep a smile on your face, a prayer in your heart, and your eyes on God!
