Wednesday's Words

The word of this week is 'WORK'. I heard Pastor Rick Warren say the other day that it is estimated that the average person will spend 150,000 hours of their life at work. When you do the math--that is 51.3 years of 8 hour days at work. Some work less and some work more. However the point is not how much you work or how long you work or how hard you work or don't work. The point is why? Why would a person spend over half their life working for something that in most cases the're too busy with work to enjoy and ultimately can't take with them? I guess there are as many different answers to that question as their are people in the world. But it does cause one to pause, if only for a moment f

The word for this week is "RIGHTEOUSNESS". It is the word 'dikaiosune' in the N.T. It is the character or quality of being right or just. Now those who know the Lord realize that we cannot be made righteous by our own effort, no matter how much effort is put forth. A sinner can only be made righteous before God through the righteousness of Christ. Therefore, by the covering of the blood of Jesus we are made right, just and holy before God. Righteousness from God's perspective speaks of His faithfulness and His truthfulness to His promises made to those He made and desires to save. No one is excluded from that desire. However, many will exclude themselves from His design through their wil

The word for this week is 'FEAR'. Not in the sense of reverence or awe of God but rather in the sense of fright, of being afraid. Fear is a very real thing. Some people fear death. Some fear disease. Some fear the dark. Some fear the effect of drugs while others do not fear the effect quite enough. Some fear losing what they possess and what may well possess them. Some fear what isn’t known and while some fear what is. If it is possible to fear fear, I’m sure someone is experiencing that today too. Fear can be a paralyzing experience. Charles Allen, author of Victory in the Valleys shares this story about fear. 5-year old Johnny was in the kitchen as his mother made supper. She asked

The word for this week is 'FELLOWSHIP'. It is the foundation for all enduring relationships, both human and divine. Fellowship was the reason that God created Adam and Eve to begin with because our God is a relational God. He desires to share His life with others and they with Him. It was fellowship that took the initial hit when Adam chose to disobey God's will for his life. It was Adam's sin that short-circuited perfect harmony and oneness with God. Fellowship mattered so much to God that God initiated the recovery and restoration when He came looking for Adam. God pursued the one He had made in His image; the one He longed to share His love and life with. However, fellowship would not

The word for this week is 'WHOEVER'. It is a word that carries a tone of welcome for all who hear it. It speaks of inclusiveness in its witness to others. It is word that transcends cultural boundaries and limitations. The word of God says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that 'whoever' believes in Him shall not perish but shall have eternal life." John 3:16 Anyone may be a part of the "whoever" in that promise. However, it is imperative to understand that it is NOT 'what' you believe that makes the difference BUT 'who' you believe. Someone may have faith in a chair to hold them but a chair will not save your soul. One may exercise faith in a church to minis
