Peace in Troubled Times

In the last years we have seen multiple tsunamis, tornados, hurricanes, and all sorts of other natural disaster and troubled society. Every time the news is on, it can sound depressing. But,
The Holy Bible tells us, "The Lord sat enthroned at the flood, And the Lord sits as King forever.
The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace." (Psalm
29:10-11 NKJV) Even though it may not seem like it, God was there through all that. He was there comforting His people, guiding the rescuers, doctors, and all those in the recovery. The strength of those storms, God gives His people that much, and more strength. And, God will also give us that same amount of peace. When we feel weak and troubled we need to remember that God is our strength and our peace. What joy and blessing that is in times of trouble! Love, Beau

East from West

"As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us." (Psalm 103:12 NKJV) If you take this verse literally the farthest two point on earth is 12,451 miles or 20,038 km. However, God was dealing with His universe, and God's universe has no boundaries. There is no "farthest point". Trying to find a farthest point implies that there is some absolute coordinate system in the universe, which there is not. That means, when we truly repent, God's compassion and forgiveness for us has no end! Nothing can seperate us from the love of God. What a true blessing He gives us! This is our gift now and forever! Love, Beau

Into the World

"And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15 NKJV) Because of limitations, it has always disturbed mom that she has never been able to go on a mission trip to poor countries. But, mom recently shared with me a realization she had. My sermons are read by humans and animals in many places. This is how we "go out into the world" proclaiming the good works of God. In the literal sense, God does want those able, to go out and feed the hungry, tend the needy, and preach the word of God. Some are even called to do this. For various reasons, there are those not able to go "into the world" feeding the hungry, tending the needy, and preaching the word of God. Other are called to missions in different ways. In today's world, there are many other ways to achieve "going into the world." One doesn't have to feel guilty. God gave us the gift of creativity and, with God's guidance, we can use that creativity to find our own unique path to "go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." The important thing is that you do. Love, Beau

"He has sent redemption to His people; He has commanded His covenant forever: Holy and awesome is His name." (Psalm 111:9 NKJV) When God sent Moses to free the Hebrews from the Egyptians He sent them redemption. And, when God sent His only son, Jesus Christ to in our place, He sent redemption for all. God even strongly and specifically directed that we be in covenant with Him and redeemed forever. Forever means that it is never to late to be redeemed and start a relationship with God. And, if we lose our way, we can always find our way back. Forever also means that once we are redeemed, we are always redeemed. God's word is steadfast and permament. You can count on God, and His word. As the writer of this Bible verse does, it is good to praise God for all He does and has given us! Love, Beau
