Why is it that you were looking for Me?

I went out with my cross today. I see people that rejoice in seeing the cross, and some scorn, but most ignore. There are many brave Christians that go to killing places to plead for the lives of babies as they are being slaughtered in the womb. In my community to the glory of God that is not happening yet, and it will be my prayer that it never does, abortions that is. I took my cross, a 4ft’x2.5’ stained wood cross with 3” letters on the cross beam that say, “ARE YOU READY”. I got this idea from an evangelist in California named Tony Miano, many others have taken up this idea across the country and made their own crosses and go out with them in their communities. “ARE YOU READY” it’s a good conversation starter because people will ask; ready for what?

I took my cross today to the location of Planned Parenthood in Tyler, TX. Why? Because first of all it is on Broadway Ave, one of the busiest roads in Tyler; and secondly, were do most of the women come from who are scheduled to have their babies aborted at the Planned Parenthood abortuary in Dallas? Outlying clinics like this one in Tyler, TX. So my thought and prayer was if I go to this location there just might be a woman who decides not to schedule an abortion after seeing the cross with its message, or cause a man to take responsibility for his child. The cross is a symbol, nothing more. You cannot reach God praying to the cross as some try to do. It is a symbol, a symbol of God’s word. The message of the cross is that we have all sinned against a Holy and just God, that every sin without exception must be punished, that God is love so He made a way for man to be right with Him, and that way is His Son, Christ Jesus, whom God displayed publically as a propitiation in His blood through faith.

So I stood there with my cross. There was not much foot traffic today, the usual case in Tyler, it seems that no one likes to walk. Car after car drove by, some smiled and waved, some looked with scorn, and most ignored. As the afternoon sun light dimmed into evening light, I saw a woman in scrub attire leaving Planned Parenthood for the end of the day. I watched her talk on her cell phone as she waited to pull into traffic, to busy with the trappings of this world to notice the cross and off she drove as so many do.

As the lights dimmed I prayed for all of those who drove by today that in seeing the cross that God would do a work in their heart that they just might ask the question. Am I ready to face God in judgment? And then seek Jesus.

I was reading in (The Gospel According to Luke) how young Jesus was missing from the caravan returning from Jerusalem, His parents went back to look for Him and found Him in the Temple and He said to them, “Why is it that you were looking for Me? Did you not know that I had to be in My Father’s house?” ~Luke 2:49. Where is He today? He is right where He said He would be, in His Father’s house. “’In my Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.’ Thomas said to Him, ‘Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?’ Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.’” ~John 14:2-6

The Three Aspects of Faith

Faith is made up of three things: knowledge, belief, and trust…Faith is believing that Christ is what He is said to be and that He will do what He has promised to do. (Spurgeon, C.H.) “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?. . So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:13-14, 17) When sharing the gospel publicly, and more specifically through open-air preaching you will likely be stopped from preaching by someone who claims to be a Christian.  Oftentimes when preaching in open-air, you will be preaching to a moving crowd.  Someone may walk by and hear you talking about sin and judgment.  Another may walk by and hear you talking about Christ redemptive work on the cross.  I use to think that there was the possibility that those who claimed to be Christian, who stopp

William George Davis, RN

Today I write with a broken heart an open-letter to my nursing colleague, friend and I hope, brother in Christ William Davis, RN. Will has been accused of murder and was arrested on April 11, 2018. I write this as an open-letter because this has become an open-matter. Will Davis and Family Copied from Facebook Dear Will, I miss your smiles and your jovial laughter on our nursing unit. I first meet you about 5 years ago in the spring of 2013. My wife met you before I did; I remember her telling me, “I met a guy in orientation who is going to work on your unit, he is so excited to work on your unit and is real fun.” From that time on you were usually laughing and all smiles. Often times you brought a bag of candy to work, because of this, and your jovial laughter I nicknamed you the Candyman and would even sing in your presences, “Who can make the sun rise and cover it with cheer…the Candyman can, the Candyman can because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.”

Come Follow Me

Mark 10 It was Jesus’ custom to teach when a crowd gathered. He taught that it is not God’s will that a wife and husband should separate, for he considers them one flesh. Later, his disciples questioned him about this and Jesus told them that to divorce and marry another is committing adultery. Jesus used the metaphor of how a child excepts as being the way we should except the kingdom of God. Jesus corrected a rich young man’s understanding of good and showed him that to repent and follow Jesus Christ is the only good that a man can do. It is impossible for people to enter the kingdom of God but with God all things are possible. Jesus promised eternal life to all who leave whatever is holding them back from following him. On the journey to Jerusalem, Jesus told his disciples about his coming arrest, trial, humiliation, suffering, death and resurrection three days later. James and John sought honor for themselves at Jesus right and left sides in his kingdom, but he told them, it is for
