NO MORE TEARS

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."

Revelation 21:4
King James Version

Jim Hill wrote one of my favorite hymns "What a Day That Will Be". I love these words in this inspiring hymn. "There is coming a day, When no heart aches shall come, No more clouds in the sky, No more tears to dim the eye, All is peace forever more, On that happy golden shore, What a day, glorious day that will be. What a day that will be, When my Jesus I shall see, And I look upon His face, The One who saved me by His grace; When He takes me by the hand, And leads me through the Promised Land, What a day, glorious day that will be."

How I long for the day when I will have the privilege of seeing my precious Saviour face to face. It really is going to be a glorious day. I love Jesus so much. He is the reason I'm living and the reason I get out of bed. He is the "KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS" and He is coming back for you and for me.

Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us so much You opened Your heart of compassion to us and gave You beloved Son to die on the cross for our sins. I love You, Heavenly Father. Thank You for the privilege You have given me to serve Jesus. I pray for every pastor who is preaching the good news of our risen Saviour. Please encourage them and comfort them. Thank You. In Jesus' Name, I pray. Amen.

NEVER

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

John 3:16
King James Version

Bill and Gloria Gaither wrote one of my favorite hymns "I Could Never Outlove The Lord". It is impossible to outlove the Lord. Bill Gaither wrote the hymn "The Longer I Serve Him". The words in this beautiful hymn are so true. "The longer I serve Him the sweeter He grows; The more that I love Him more love He bestows. Each day is like Heaven, my heart overflows. The longer I serve Him the sweeter He grows."

Our Heavenly Father proved how much He loves us when He gave His beloved Son to be beaten beyond recognition, cursed, mocked, spat on, humiliated and die on the cross for your sins and for my sins. Jesus suffered more pain and more anguish than anyone has ever endured or ever will endure. Do you understand yet how much God and Jesus love you?

Are you serving Jesus? If not, why aren't you serving Him? Our precious Saviour left His Father, His home and all that He had to come to earth to die on the cross for our sins so we can be saved and go to Heaven when we die. Jesus deserves all of our heart, all of our time and everything we have. When is the last time you told Jesus that you love Him? Jesus has feelings too and He want us to tell Him that we love Him just as we want Him to tell us that He loves us. It would break my heart if Jesus didn't tell me every day that He loves me.

Please lift your hands and voice and join me in praising Jesus. What a Saviour! What a Friend, this Jesus of Nazareth! All hail, King Jesus! Worthy is the Lamb of God! He is the "KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS"! O how I love Jesus. He is the reason I'm living, the reason I get out of bed in the morning and one happy day I am going to have the privilege of seeing Him face to face.

OUR FAITHFUL SAVIOUR

"But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them."

Luke 24:29
King James Version

Pastor Henry F. Lyte wrote a beautiful hymn about our faithful Saviour "Abide with Me". "Abide with me! Fast falls the eventide; The darkness thickens. Lord with me abide. When other helpers fail, And comforts flee, Help of the helpless, O abide with me!" What a healing balm it is to our weary battle scarred heart to know that our faithful Saviour abides with us and that He has never left us and He will never leave us.

If you have ever had someone who you trusted and who you thought was a good friend do or say something cruel to you or about you, then you know how it hurts. Jesus understands how we feel and He knows how it hurts to be betrayed, ridiculed and judged unfairly. I am so glad that we have the assurance that Jesus will never condemn us even when we hurt Him because He tells us that He won't condemn us.

What a healing balm it is to our battle scarred heart to know that even when we hurt Jesus, that He still loves us. "When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more" (John 8:10, 11).

It's time that you and I stop judging, criticizing and condemning other people and start loving unconditionally as Jesus has commanded us to love each other and start praying for and encouraging one another. May God forgive us for hurting Jesus because when we hurt one another, we are also hurting Jesus.

NO MORE HEARTACHES

"He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it."

Isaiah 25:8
King James Version

Hauta W. Sloan wrote a beautiful hymn about our tears "No Sorrow There". "Oft our hearts are filled with sorrow, As we journey day by day; But when we get home up yonder, God will wipe all tears away." I am so glad that the words in this heart touching hymn are a promise to us.

Precious Heavenly Father, what a balm it is to our weary broken heart to know that there will be no sorrow in Heaven and that You are going to wipe all our tears away. I pray for all those who are discouraged and brokenhearted. Please encourage and comfort them as You have done so many times. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.

HE IS WAITING

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

Matthew 11:28
King James Version

Jesus is waiting for us to come to Him because He knows how it feels to be tired, discouraged and feel all alone. He longs to comfort and encourage us. Jesus want us to live a life that is filled with happiness and unconditional love. We read in the Bible. "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10).

If you're going through a dark valley, tell Jesus and ask Him to help you. He will be faithful to pick you up in His loving arms and will carry you until the pain goes away and will set you once again on the mountain top of happiness. O how Jesus loves you!

Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us so much that You gave Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. I pray for all those who have never invited Jesus into their heart to be their personal Saviour. May today be the day they say yes to Jesus. I love You, dear Father and I appreciate all You have done for me. In Jesus' Name, I pray. Amen.

A DAY FOR LOVE

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

John 3:16
King James Version

Today is Valentine's Day and we give flowers and gifts to our loved ones and take our loved ones out to eat and do special things with the ones we love. Every day of the year should be a special day to remember all our Saviour has done for us and to give Jesus thanks and tell our loving Saviour how much we love Him and appreciate all He has done for us.

Let us also remember to thank our Heavenly Father for opening His heart of unconditional love to us and giving His beloved Son to die on the cross for our sins. We have a loving compassionate Heavenly Father Who really loves us and cares about us.

Frederick Whitfield wrote one of my favorite hymns "Oh, How I Love Jesus". I love the words in this beautiful hymn because they are so true and express what is in my heart. "O how I love Jesus, O how I love Jesus, O how I love Jesus, because he first loved me! It tells me of a Savior's love, who died to set me free; it tells me of his precious blood, the sinner's perfect plea."

As we celebrate Valentine's Day, let us remember to tell Jesus how much we love Him and appreciate all He has done for us. If you have never invited Jesus into your heart to be your personal Saviour, you would make Him very happy if you will invite Him into your heart. Open the door of your heart and say yes to Jesus today.

ONLY JESUS

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

John 14:6
King James Version

People try to work their way into Heaven and they try to buy their way into Heaven. However, it is only through the precious redeeming blood of Jesus that we can be saved and go to Heaven. If we could work our way into Heaven or buy our way into Heaven, Jesus wouldn't have had to be beaten beyond recognition, spat on, cursed, mocked, betrayed and left alone to die on the cross where He suffered an anguish and a pain that you and I will never know. What a Saviour! What a Friend, this Jesus of Nazareth! No one loves you like Jesus does and nobody ever will. All hail, King Jesus! Worthy is the Lamb of God! Never forget that He loves you and He always will love you.
