Weekly Devotional: Gems From Pastor Jim 12/14/2020

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossAmos 5:14 Do what is good and run from evil—that you may live! The LORD God Almighty will truly be your helper, just as you have claimed he is.

It’s not very hard to understand at all. If we want to live in Christ we must do good and run from evil. If we do this, then the Lord will help us do it.

We cannot do good if we aren’t good. What makes us good is the shed blood of Christ applied to our hearts. No one is good in the Biblical sense except for God and no one can be good apart from a relationship with Him. Just because we do good things doesn’t mean we are good people. It’s not too hard to be good before man while not being good before God. We often confuse the two and think that our standing with man makes us in good standing with God. It doesn’t. Only Christ can make us good before God.

If we are good before God we will run from evil. Now, we can’t avoid evil; it’s the norm for the world in which we live. But, we can choose to not participate in the evil that surrounds us. We can choose to run from tempting situations. We can choose to not be entertained by evil. We can choose to not get too close to evil and avoid it rubbing off on us. Godly people have a distaste in their mouths for evil and seek instead the things of God. They seek to let the Lord build them up instead of letting Satan tear them down.

The Lord promises to help us when we set our hearts and minds on Him. He wants to see us become a holy people, a people after His own heart. He wants to make us heaven ready. He wants to teach us His ways. He wants to help us get rid of all the baggage that hinders us. He wants to help us live in victory and not defeat. He wants to help us, but He won’t do it unless we let Him have control of our hearts and minds.

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 chaper 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 … Black Friday 12/10/2020

Send to Kindle

by James Collins

“O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.”  

1 Chronicles 16:34 

 Years ago, my wife, Amanda, talked me into going shopping with her. Shopping with Amanda is dangerous and stressful enough, but, we went shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving. We went shopping on Black Friday.  

The name “Black Friday” sounds awful. It brings to mind being blackmailed, the black plague, and the black death. It sounds bad.  

Black Friday has always puzzled me. Why is it that on Black Friday Americans are willing to kill over materialistic items just one day after celebrating what they are already thankful for?  

I have heard that the term “Black Friday” refers to the pattern of pedestrian and vehicle traffic that hits large cities. However, that is not true. Retailers coined the term to describe the day of the year when their shops go from being in the red to going into profit or into the black.  

Black Friday has become the largest day of shopping both on the internet and in retail stores. Last year on Black Friday, Americans spent an average of $938.58 per shopper, and Americans spent $655.8 billion overall.   

Anyway, years ago, before our children were born, Amanda talked me into going shopping with her on Black Friday. And I went shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving for the first and last time in my life.  

At first, I thought it would be fun. I thought it might become a family tradition. I thought we might do a little shopping. Then we would hang out and have breakfast. I thought it would be a nice way to spend time with my wife, but I was wrong. 

The day started out okay. We got up early before dawn. We had coffee. Then we went to Walmart at 5 in the morning. I have never seen anything like what I saw that morning. Three-hundred people lined up waiting for Walmart to open. I can’t get three hundred people to get up that early and come see a new believer get baptized. Man! I can’t even get thirty people to get up that early and come see a new believer get baptized. To tell the truth, I can’t even get three people to get up that early and come see a new believer get baptized. 

When they opened the doors, I was almost trampled by a wild pack of shoppers. Inside the store wasn’t any better. I made the mistake of standing in front of a door-buster sign. People pushed me out of the way to get to a video game that was on sale. 

They wheeled out a blue flashing light. Grown men and women ran from all over the store to the blue light to get a Tickle Me Elmo toy.  

Two women almost got in a fistfight. They were both going after the last coat on a 50% off rack. All over the store people were running, pushing, shoving, fighting, and cussing. I’m telling you, those people were crazy.  

The point is: We have lost our way. On that Black Friday, I realized America has become a nation which has slipped away from worshipping God to a nation that worships material things. One day after giving thanks to God for all their blessings, Americans fight over TVs and toasters. On the day that kicks off the Christmas season, Americans act anything but Christ-like.  

As we celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday this week, let us pause and give thanks to almighty God for all His blessings. Let us reflect on our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as we decorate for Christmas. Let us spend quality time with family and friends. It is okay to go shopping, but don’t let shopping come between you and your relationship with God.  

Besides, I have discovered that Black Friday equals Broke Saturday. 

The Point Is...

Numbers: The Census of the People

Numbers: The Census of the People

Numbers is the fourth book of the Pentateuch. It is named for the numbering of the people of Israel. However, it was known to the Jewish people as “In the Wilderness”, because it primarily tells of the forty years of wandering in the wilderness before entering the promised land. After the exodus from Egypt, the Israelites rebelled against God. Because of this rebellion, only two men of all the adults who left Egypt were to enter into the promised land of Canaan.

Weekly Devotional: Gems From Pastor Jim 12/7/2020

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossAmos 3:7 “But always, first of all, I warn you through my servants the prophets. I, the Sovereign LORD, have now done this.”

God does not act in judgment without first warning us. God makes it very clear why He judges us. He has over and over again made known to us the life we need to live before Him. He demands of us holy living. He clearly has told us what sin is and how we need to avoid it. He makes a clear distinction between sin and godly living. He created us with the ability to choose between good and evil and right from the beginning made it clear what was good and what was evil.

No one can claim innocence or injustice when it comes to sin. God gave us His Word to clearly show us the way to holy living. He has told us about coming judgment on the world. Although most ignore God’s warnings and warning signs, it is going to happen just as He proclaimed it would. Knowing that God does take sin seriously and judges it ought to cause us to be careful how we live. All sin will be exposed by His holiness and judged on Judgment Day.

In order to know what God says about sin and judgment, we must dig deep into God’s Word. A consistent reading of the Word exposes sin that is around us and in us. We who have the Word at our disposal will be held more accountable for our knowledge of our sin for all we have to do is to open it up and read it. A closed Bible does the soul no good. We need to read what sin is under the law and under grace. We need to read about the consequences of sin. We need to read about how God has dealt with sin in the past, how He deals with it now, and how He will deal with it in the future.

You are warned. God judges sin and will have no mercy on those who insist on living in it.

The Point Is … The Bird 12/3/2020

Send to Kindle

by James Collins

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

A lonely lady lived alone, and she didn’t like it. Finally, she decided to do something about her loneliness. She went to a pet store and looked at all the dogs, cats, hamsters, turtles, and goldfish that were for sale, hoping to find a pet that would be good company. None of the pets really made the woman happy and she was ready to give up when the pet store owner showed her a very expensive parrot. 

“Does it talk” she asked. “Yes ma’am,” the owner replied, “He’s a genuine chatterbox.” The woman was thrilled. Excitedly, she paid $2000 for the parrot and his cage.  

A week later, the woman came back to the pet shop and said, “I want my money back. I paid $2000 for my talking bird and he doesn’t talk at all.” The pet store owner said, “Ma’am, he will talk if you just entice him a little bit. Put some things in his cage with him.” She agreed and the pet shop owner sold her a mirror for the bird to look at himself and a ladder for the bird to run up and down. When the items were totaled up, it cost the lady $50. 

Another week went by and the woman returned to the pet store. She was madder than a hornet. She said, “My talking bird still will not talk.” The pet shop owner said, “Ma’am, you have to entice him a little more. What you need to do is get him a bell to ring and a swing to swing on. He will get so excited, he will talk.” She said, “Okay.” By the time she left the pet store, she had paid another $50.  

After another weekthe woman stomped back into the pet store. She was visibly angry.  

“I want you to know that my talking bird is dead. He is dead, dead, dead and I’m out $2100, she huffed. 

“You’re kidding. That bird was healthy when I sold him to you 3 weeks ago,” the pet store owner said. 

“Well, he’s dead now. He’s deader than a hammer. He swung on his swing. He rang his bell. He looked at himself in the mirror. He ran up and down his ladder. Then he fell on his little back in the bottom of the cage. He kicked his little legs up in the air and he blew out his last breath. He’s dead. My talking bird is dead.” 

“I am so sorry.”  

“Well, if it makes you feel any better, he finally said something before he died.”  

“Really? What did he say?”  

“Right before he died, my bird looked at me and said, Hey dummy! Don’t they have any bird seed at that pet store! 

The point is:  You can have all the bells and whistles this world has to offer, but without Jesus, you will be dead. We have all sinned. As far as God is concerned, we deserve the death penalty, but He provided a way to have life. God gave His Son to die in our place, and all who believe on Him are saved. 

Jesus Christ, the Bread of Life, is food for your soul. There is no need to let your hunger for spiritual nourishment go unsatisfied. All you need is abundantly available in Jesus. 

Don’t starve to death.  

Taste and see that the Lord is good. 

The Point Is...
