    Intentional Growth 2 (Prayer) from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. The Sermon on the Mount that Jesus gave is a goldmine of information. It is like the beating heart of my Bible. It spans 3 chapters, Matthew 5 through 7. I created a playlist of it and put it on repeat to listen to it all day...

    A man's steps are established by Yahweh. He delights in his way. Though he stumble, he shall not fall, for Yahweh holds him up with his hand. I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his children begging for bread. All day long he deals graciously, and lends...

Nailed It

  • He said to Jesus, 'Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom.' Jesus said to him, 'Assuredly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.' Luke 23:42 WEB

    Three men were stripped naked, beaten, nailed to a cross, and then lifted up for all to see and mock. Two of the men were condemned thieves; the other was Jesus. While they struggled to breath, one of the thieves railed against Jesus and seemed only concerned with the moment. He had no concern, nor guilt over what he had done in the past, and he wanted Jesus to get him down so that he could continue his life of sin.

    The other thief rebuked the first and said that they were getting what their deeds deserved, but that Jesus had done nothing wrong. He then asked Jesus to remember him when He came into His kingdom. This thief acknowledged what he had done was wrong, and then he spoke to Jesus.

    Both men were guilty, both men spoke to Jesus, but only one man was saved. After a life of crime and now while he was getting what he deserved, God had mercy on him because he took the time to ask. God could have laughed and said: 'You worked hard to earn this, now enjoy it.' Instead, while breathing out his last few breaths, he turned to Jesus and was saved.

    God is merciful, and regardless of what you have done, it can be made right. Regardless of how long you have done it, it can be wiped away. A life of sin can be removed in a moment, even during your last breath. Though our sin is like scarlet, He will make it as white as snow (Isaiah 1:18).

    It is never too late to make things right with your maker, but like a wise investment, the earlier that you begin, the greater the reward that you will gain. When you fall, get back up and take another step. God's door is wide open, and all are welcome.

    Prayer: Lord Jesus, forgive me, come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. Please guide me from this day forth and lead me into all that You have for me. I want to live my life for You and make every minute left count. In Your name, amen.
