Interactive Romans Road KJV

Interactive Romans Road – King James Version

Long Ago, when the Roman Empire was at the height of its glory, a common saying was “All Roads Lead to Rome.” I want to tell you about a very special road — a road that existed then and still exists now. This road, now almost 2,000 years old, has never led to Rome. Yet, strangely enough, it is called the Romans Road.

This takes the reader to selected passages in the Book of Romans in the Bible to explain the plan of Salvation. This is the ideal way to share the gospel using your Kindle. The reader can also read the entire book of Romans un-interrupted.

Weekly Devotional: Gems From Pastor Jim 7/13/2020

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

crossEzek. 3:20-21 “If good people turn bad and don’t listen to my warning, they will die. If you did not warn them of the consequences, then they will die in their sins. Their previous good deeds won’t help them, and I will hold you responsible, demanding your blood for theirs. But if you warn them and they repent, they will live and you will have saved your own life too.”

Every time I read this passage and meditate on it, it challenges me. I know God spoke to Ezekiel during a different time than we live in. The Israelites were living under the law and not grace. God dealt with His people differently then than He does now. Yet, I can’t help but take this passage and draw a parallel to our living.

The Lord suggests that good people can turn bad. Can godly people turn away from their godliness and sin against God? I believe so. We do not lose our freewill when we give our hearts over to Christ. We still choose between good and evil. We still choose whether or not we are going to live by God’s Word or not. We daily make spiritual choices. So, what happens when godly people turn away from God and choose to live in sin?

This passage tells us that the people of Ezekiel’s day would die if they did not repent. Does this mean that they would lose their standing with God? I will let others debate that issue. All I know is what the Word declares. Here God says that their past goodness would not help them. God says He would hold them responsible for their sins. I believe that God has not changed. He still holds us responsible for our sins. How can it be otherwise? God is holy and there will be no sin in heaven whatsoever. One way or another, all sin will be dealt with before we are allowed into heaven. God makes it clear in His Word that when we sin we must confess it and seek Christ’s forgiveness. Only the pure in heart will see God. What happens if we don’t confess our sins and seek God’s forgiveness? He will deal with us accordingly. He judges each of us by the righteousness of Christ and the standards of His Word. He will judge each of us rightly.

I would caution each of us to not ignore this truth. It is a very serious thing to harbor sin in our hearts. It leads us away from God and soon takes over our lives. If we turn away from God and live sinful lives, we will stand before God and give an account for our lives. Listen to what God says about sin; let His Spirit lead you according to His Word.

About the Author:

Jim Hughes

Spending his formative years in Ft. Wayne, IN, Jim followed the love of his life to southeast Iowa where they married and have spent the majority of their lives. Jim has pastored several churches throughout his life and has worked many years in local factories to help support his family. The father of two married adult children and one son still at home, Jim is a first-time author.

C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chapter on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one’s self from such failures.

I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn’t broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.

The Point is … Masks 7/9/2020

Send to Kindle

by James Collins

Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.  John 12:4-6  

When I was a kid, I used to wear a mask. It was a Superman mask. Superman was my favorite hero. When I was seven, I read so many Superman comic books that I really thought I was Superman.  

I made a Superman suit. I had a Superman t-shirt, a red bath towel for a cape, and a pair of red Underoos that I wore outside my pants. I completed my costume with a plastic Superman mask from an old Halloween costume. The mask had jet black wavy hair with a j-curl that went down in the middle of the forehead. Without the mask, I was just James. I was a mild-mannered, nerdy little kid. But when I put on my Superman mask, I thought I was the Man of Steel.  

One morning, I was sitting in the kitchen eating Fruity Pebbles out of a plastic butter bowl. I was wearing my Superman outfit. I lifted the mask to get a bite of cereal and put it back down to chew. In my mind, Superman was having breakfast. 

While I was eating, I was also reading a Superman comic book. I don’t know if it was the comic book, the sugary Fruity Pebbles, or a combination of both, but I got all excited and believed that I was Superman. I took off running through the house. I was faster than a speeding vacuum cleaner. More powerful than the dog. Able to leap coffee tables in a single bound. Look! Up on the kitchen counter. It’s a toaster. It’s a microwave. No. It’s a kid in a mask who thinks he is Superman! 

I went running through the house. As I jumped over the table in the living room, I knocked off a lamp. It fell off the table and shattered to pieces.  

Momma had told me a hundred times not to run in the house. So, the consequence was a spanking. Momma was about to spank me when I said, “Wait.” I took off my Superman mask, bent over, and said, “Okay, now.” I needed to take off the mask because Superman never got a whipping. You must think like a seven-year-old kid to understand this, but when I put on that mask, I was Superman.  

Sadly, many grown intelligent adults do the same thing. They wear a mask. The Bible tells us about a man named Judas. He was one of the disciples of Jesus. But he wore a mask. His mask concealed the truth. His mask hid his true identity.  

The point is: It is better to live naked in truth than clothed in fantasy.  

What sort of mask of untruth are you wearing?  

What are you hiding behind your mask?

Weekly Devotional: Gems From Pastor Jim 7/6/2020

crossEzek. 3:18-19 “If I warn the wicked saying, ‘You are under the penalty of death,’ but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible, demanding your blood for theirs. If you warn them and they keep on sinning and refuse to repent, they will die in their sins. But you will have saved your life because you did what you were told to do.”

We are the message bearers. God wants everyone to know that sin leads to hell. He wants everyone to hear what the consequences of disobeying God are. He has placed upon us, His chosen ones, the responsibility to tell them. We cannot control how the wicked will respond to the message, but we can control whether or not we tell them.

If we fail to warn the lost of their lostness, the Lord will hold us responsible for our failure. We may still stay in fellowship with the Lord, but we will not be in His favor. He does not save us so that we will hoard the Good News. If we truly appreciate the wonderful gift of our salvation we will want to tell all we can about it. How can we not be excited enough about our salvation to not want to share it with others?

There are going to be those who will respond positively to the Good News and be saved and there will be those who will keep on sinning and refuse to repent. It should come as no surprise to us that most will reject the message. Jesus made it clear that people in the dark stay in the dark because they know that in the light their deeds will be exposed. And, once deeds are exposed they must be dealt with and changes made in behavior. Most people either fear change or simply do not want to change. Most people will continue to sin and reject the Good News. Only the Holy Spirit can change the heart of man and if He can’t get through to people, why should we expect positive results?

When we obey the Lord and share the Good News, we will be blessed by God. Our obedience assures us of our own salvation. All we can do is plant the seed. It is the Lord alone who can make it grow. The Lord has saved us to be bearers of the Good News. Do not disobey God in this. Spread the Good News whenever and wherever you can. Great will be your reward in heaven when you do.

The Point is … Happy Father’s Week 7/2/2020

Send to Kindle

by James Collins

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

The brilliant philosopher, Rodney Dangerfield, once said, “I get no respect.” As a father, I appreciate that statement. There are times when I get no respect. For example, for Mother’s Day, the kids went all out. Momma got breakfast in bed, a spa treatment, lunch at a fancy restaurant, jewelry, flowers, a magnificent steak dinner, followed by coffee and dessert. For Father’s Day, I got a coupon for a halfprice kid’s meal and a pair of socks.  

So, my family was shocked when on Monday I announced that it isn’t Father’s “Day,” it’s Father’s “Week.” I said, “All week long we are going to celebrate Dad.” My announcement was met with audible sighs and rolling eyes. One of my precious children said, “Whatever!”  

What is Father’s Week? It is a week where I get the TV remote – I choose what shows we watch. For Father’s Week, we are watching John Wayne movies and bad TV preachers. I like John Wayne, well, because he’s John Wayne. I like bad TV preachers because I like to make fun of them. One guy, who claimed to have the power to heal all manner of sickness, was wearing a cheap toupee. If that guy could heal, don’t you think he should be able to heal himself up some hair? But I digress… 

Father’s Week means that I get to take undisturbed naps in the middle of the day. I get ice cream and cookies with every meal. I get to sit on the porch and read a book while the family mows the grass. I get unlimited refills on my glass of iced tea. I get the first fruits (that’s biblical) of all junk food that comes into the house. I get waited on hand and foot. 

So far, none of my children are on board with Father’s Week. Oddly enough, my wife isn’t either. Maybe I have the wrong idea about my role versus their roles. 

Similarly, Christians often get the wrong idea about their role versus God’s role. Sometimes we think God is sitting in heaven, waiting to meet our needs. God is indeed a loving Father who provides for us, but He doesn’t exist to serve us. 

The truth is that we exist for God. He created us and has equipped us to serve Him. The Bible says that we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which He prepared beforehand so we would do them. Everything about us was designed by God to equip us for the work He preordained long before our birth. 

The point is: God uniquely created you, and He has provided you with everything you need to serve and glorify Him. All you must do is step out in obedience and fully rely on His grace and power. 

Are you serving your Heavenly Father like you should? Get busy serving Him. 

Oh, and Happy Father’s Week.  

I must go now. The kids have stolen the TV remote again…

Redeem Region versus Strife State: Restoring the Joy of Salvation

Redeem Region versus Strife State: Restoring the Joy of Salvation

Faith grew up on the Texas gulf coast, just north of Galveston. She came to the Lord at the very early age of two or three. Her family attended church fairly regularly however, they did not share a personal relationship experience with the Lord until much later. She left college to care for her mother, who was dying from cancer. After her mother’s death a series of unfortunate events left her shattered. God faithfully held onto her through this troubling time. When she was able to function again, she went to school to become a missionary. Upon finishing, she went to Thailand, where she thought she would spend the rest of her life, only to find herself back in the United States a few months later. Out of this disappointment she began writing the book: Redeem Region versus Strife State, Restoring the Joy of Salvation.
