Weekly Devotional: Gems From Pastor Jim 12/9/2019

by Jim Hughes

crossIs. 9:6-7 For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. And the government will rest on his shoulders. These will be his royal titles: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Jesus is our Wonderful Counselor. We discover many wonderful things about our Lord’s ability to counsel us as we face life’s uncertainties. In Matthew 9 there was a paralytic brought to Jesus for his healing. In verse four, Matthew tells us that Jesus knows the thoughts of man. No one can hide his thoughts from the Lord. He is able to give us good advice because He knows our thoughts whether we can express them or not. He doesn’t need anyone to interpret our thoughts for Him.

In John 2:25 we learn that Jesus also knows the heart of man. He knows what is behind our thoughts. He knows what our hearts need, even better than we do. He listen to our hearts and not just our words. Thus, He is able to give us much better counsel than any human ever could.

In Hebrews 4:15 we learn that Jesus was tempted in all points just as we tempted. What this says to me is that He understands how we feel. He has been confronted by the same things that confront us and understands their affect on us. In other words, He us the ultimate emphasize. He is able to help us from a position of personal experience. What He offers us by way of counsel is trustworthy because He has lived it.

In Psalm 139 we discover knows what we are made of, because He made us. We were formed in our mother’s womb with His full knowledge. He knew right from the beginning of our lives our past, present and future. He is able to counsel us best because there is nothing lacking in His knowledge of us. He knows all the details we leave out when we seek the counsel of others.

Jesus is our Wonderful Counselor. We can flee to Him with full confidence that He will not steer us wrong. He loves us and desires only what is good for us. When we listen to Him and follow His advice, He works all things out in our lives for our good and it brings Him glory and honor when we do (Romans 8:28,29). And yes, the Lord does use others to give us sound advice that helps us and if their advice is Biblically-based we should follow it.

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.

Verse of the Day and Devotional 12/5/2019

by Bible League International

Verse of the Day and Devotion

…”The Lord says, ‘I am with you!'”  – Haggai 1:13 ERV

Devotion

Sometimes, you just can’t see it. Sometimes, you just can’t see what time it is. You may think that you do, but you really don’t. After all, in the final analysis, you’re not the one that determines what time it is. You’re not the one that determines, for example, whether it’s time to destroy or build, to throw weapons down or to pick them up. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8) Sometimes, therefore, you have to be told. Someone who knows has to tell you. Only then will you be able to coordinate your life with what time it is. Only then will you stop fighting against what time it is.

Who will tell you what time it is? The Lord will tell you. The Lord will tell you, or someone sent by the Lord. The Lord determines the times. He knows, therefore, what time it is. In their own day, the returning remnant of Judah didn’t know what time it was. For them, it was time to build the temple, but they didn’t see it. Indeed, they thought just the opposite. They were saying amongst themselves, “it is not yet the right time to build the Lord’s temple.” (Haggai 1:2) In effect, they were fighting against the time. In effect, they were fighting against the Lord.

The Lord didn’t leave them in that sorry state of spiritual blindness. They couldn’t see what time it was because they were more concerned with themselves and their interests than with the Lord’s interests. The Lord sent Haggai the prophet to tell them where they were going wrong and what they should do. He told them that the reason why things weren’t going as well for them as they would have liked was precisely because they didn’t know what time it was, because they refused to see what time it was. (Haggai 1:3-11)

Maybe, you need to know what time it is as well. Maybe, you need the Lord to open your eyes just as much as the people of Judah did back in the day. If so, then when He does tell you, in whatever way He tells you, you need to do the same thing they did. They accepted what time it was. They began to build the temple.

If you accept what time it is, then the Lord will say the same thing to you that He said to them as recorded in our verse for today. He will say, “I am with you!”

crossIs. 9:6-7 For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. And the government will rest on his shoulders. These will be his royal titles: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

For unto us a child is born…..The birth of Jesus was not a spur of the moment event. In Ephesians 1:3-10 Paul makes it clear that before the foundation of the world was laid, God had a plan in place to redeem us. He purposely made us with the ability to accept or reject Him knowing that most would reject Him. He knew that there would be no way once sin entered into Unto us a child is born, a son is given. Jesus IS the Son of God. We hear God speak in Matt. 3:16-17 and 17:5 and declare that Jesus is His son in whom He is well pleased. Jesus left no room for doubt that He was the Son of God. John declares it to be so in John 1:1 and 14. Jesus is also the Son of Man. It is one of the titles Jesus often used of himself. He was human in every since of the word. We often find Him being hungry, tired, frustrated, praying, worshiping, dependant on God. We find Him wrestling with His certain death, in great physical pain and dying on a cross. Malachi describes His as being the Sun of Righteousness, with healing in His wings (Mal. 4:2).

Unto us a child is born, a son is given, a promise is kept. Starting in the Garden of Eden, God promised the world a Savior. Over and over again God declared the coming of the Savior. God was well aware of the world’s need for a Savior and in the fullness of time (Gal. 4:4) came, God sent His Son. Even though it seemed like God was not available, that He had abandoned His people, Jesus came. People had not given up hope, even though they had not heard from God for 400 years. They were living out life knowing that God was trustworthy and the Messiah would come some day.

We today celebrate the birth of the promised Messiah, Jesus our Savior, and we too are living out life in anticipation of His coming. Only this time, when Jesus comes He will be coming to take us, the church, out of the world to be with Him in heaven. God is trustworthy and He will keep His promise; Jesus is coming soon. Are you ready? Far more important than celebrating His birth is the celebrating of His soon return. Let us live each day in readiness.

man’s heart that He would be able to have fellowship with him, so He put in a plan whereby we could be restored to fellowship with Him. God gave us His Son because He loves us and wants to spend eternity with us (John 3:16). A child was born to be our Savior and Lord.

Jesus was no ordinary child. He is the embodiment of God in human flesh. He lived a sinless life, even though He was faced with all the temptations we are faced with. He lived and died to become our Savior and Lord (Phil. 2:5-8). Jesus came to address the desperate need of our hearts. He came to be with us in this journey of life, to be our Immanuel.

Verse of the Day and Devotional 11/28/2019

by Bible League International

Verse of the Day and Devotion

…”Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.”  – Luke 6:21 ESV

Devotion

Our verse for today is one of the Beatitudes listed in Luke 6. The Beatitudes were spoken by Jesus as part of His Sermon on the Mount. The word “beatitude” refers to a state of being abundantly blessed and extremely happy. The Beatitudes are declarations of blessedness over those who embody what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Each of them begins with a pronouncement of “Blessed” over those who embody a particular virtue disciples should have and then follows with the reason why those who embody the virtue are blessed.

One of the virtues of being a disciple of Jesus is that they weep. In what way can weeping be a virtue? Weeping can be a virtue because of what disciples weep about.

First of all, disciples weep about the sin that is still left in their lives. True disciples of Jesus are sorry for their sins. They don’t ignore them or take them lightly. When they stumble, they may not be cast headlong (Psalm 37:4), but they weep nonetheless because of what they have done. That’s why disciples confess their sins. They confess them because they want to get things right with God again. They want to be forgiven of their sins and they want to be cleansed of all unrighteousness. (I John 1:9)

Second, Disciples weep because of the trials, troubles, tribulations, and persecutions of life. Disciples are not indifferent to the struggles of life. They’re not Stoic philosophers trying to act as if they’re unaffected by it all. They weep because life this side of glory is full of pressures and afflictions that try the soul. They weep because they know it shouldn’t be this way and they work, as a result of their weeping, towards changing the way things are.

The good news is that those who weep shall laugh in the end. Weeping does not have the last word for disciples. Moreover, the laughter is not the frivolous laughter of the foolish, but the joyful laughter of the wise. The Apostle Paul said that he was “sorrowful, yet always rejoicing.” (II Corinthians 6:10) And the Apostle John said that in the end the Lord will wipe away every tear from our eyes. (Revelation 21:4)

Today, there may be some weeping in your life, but, take heart, for “Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes in the morning.” (Psalm 30:5)
