I’ve been learning about Jesus Christ for the past 40 years. As I walk with Jesus, read and study my Bible, I want to share my thoughts on the scriptures that speak to my life. I am hopeful my family and friends will find the blogs inspiring, encouraging and thought provoking towards doing good works.If you don't have a Bible, email me and I will send you one. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Blessings -

I was reminded yesterday how important our mission is to share the message of salvation with those we are put in front of. I took a customer and his brother to a Yankee game last Wednesday. The brother told me several times he was ready for death at least 3x's. He died 2 days ago unexpectedly in his sleep. Are you ready? Why do you feel that way? On who's authority? How was that authority validated?
FOOD FOR THOUGHT & REFLECTION:
Boasting About Tomorrow – NIV James 4:13-17 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.
