    Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree," that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Galatians 3:13'14 WEB....

    Immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, and he cried out, saying, "Ha! What do we have to do with you, Jesus, you Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us? I know you who you are: the Holy One of God!" Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet, and come out of him!" The unclea...

The Break Room

  • For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever will lose his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits his own self? For whoever will be ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory, and the glory of the Father, and of the holy angels. Luke 9:24-26 WEB.

    The break room fell silent as I walked in to get some water. Though I was new there, I had already learned the normal topics were hangovers, sexual exploits, or who had the best drugs. The normal stream of profanity ceased when I entered the room these days.

    It all started when I said a blessing over my lunch. The others seemed unsure about what to make of that. Some of them laughed, while others turned a whiter shade of pale. Sometimes they would taunt me, and I would quote scripture back to them: "Every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord."

    I certainly wasn't trying to force my religion on them. Sadly at the time, I didn't care if the whole crowd went to hell. I was in survival mode, and it was an "every man for himself" point in my life. They would have to get to heaven as best they could. I was just trying to make it myself, but I wouldn't be ashamed of my faith in Jesus Christ. I may have been going through hell, but I was hanging on to God while doing it.

    In time, several people there came to the Lord and started coming to church with me. How do you boldly stand for Jesus? You picture Him there beside you. When they laugh at you, they are actually laughing at Him, and they will have a horrible day coming. You can stand with Him or be ashamed of Him, but He is there either way.

    Peter denied knowing Jesus three times, but there is another way: Tell them you know Him! Don't chase people who aren't ready. But when they corner you, don't be ashamed to say: "Yes, I know Jesus Christ, what about you? For you are one heartbeat from meeting Him. Think about it."

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that you give me the boldness to take a stand for You when confronted. Please fill me with Your strength and give me anointed words to speak to those around me. Help me stand strong today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.' (John 5:14) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

I don't see many that say a blessing at their meals in public unless they say it to themselves.  I always bow my head and have my hands in prayer mode.  I am not ashamed and I am very grateful.  Thank you pastor and have a great day.

Great TESTAMONY ! People watch  us and how we act. Maybe we need to display Jesus more Vividly so they understand who Jesus is...He lives inside of us, and wants us to try to be like Him. 

AMEN !

Amen! Great word today!! I have  so many friends and relatives that are not believers and I have tried to talk to them but they just dont want to hear it. I can only pray at this point and it is scary to think of my family members possible going to hell one day. Father in heaven show me how to help these family members and friends before it is too late, in the name of Jesus I pray!
