Jesus Loved Judas by Crystin Latta 1 4/5 (1)

“Even my close friend in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me” (Psalm 41:9…)

When considering difficult people, we must be careful to distinguish between truly dangerous people (who wish to destroy us) and those who are merely “different.” Culturally speaking, I have been called a godsend in some places and a nuisance in others. If we are honest, cultural differences can sometimes be deemed “difficulties.” But what does the Bible teach us?

Sometimes the only thing that makes a person difficult to us is the way we perceive them. If someone does not carry themselves in a way that pleases us, we may immediately dislike them. This may cause division and blindness toward their gift and purpose in God.

The Bible says we must esteem one another as better than ourselves. Humility will help us have patience. (Read Ephesians 2:1-8.) Pride can become a wedge between believers. Demanding that others conform will stifle the beautiful diversity of gifts and abilities. Everyone comes to the table with something different to offer. We need wisdom in dealing with souls; we are, after all, fishers of men.

First Corinthians 13 speaks of love. It also says we must believe all things and hope all things. Every commentary I’ve read said that means to believe the best about people. It doesn’t mean we ignore their sins. It means we have faith the same God who started a good work in us is at work in their lives as well.

The Bible teaches God looks on the heart, while man only sees the outside. Many people have been hurt by those who claimed to be able to discern what’s wrong with other people. I’ve done this too. Discernment was given to judge between false teachers and God’s teachers. We can only judge the fruit. I’ve observed people who were considered difficult in one setting flourish and thrive elsewhere. People miss our growth and blessings when they only want those who are like them around.

Laban was a truly difficult person with evil intentions. A great man of God hit the nail on the head when he said, “The greatest lesson of Laban is don’t be that guy.” Rather than trying to control the Labans around us, we must be sure to not be him.

The three Hebrew boys and Daniel didn’t try to overthrow the oppressive government they served. They didn’t protest or rise against them. They just kept on being godly.

Lastly, Jesus didn’t gossip about Judas to the other disciples. He didn’t laugh at him behind his back. Jesus (like most pastors I know) kissed his Judas. Loved his Judas. He even covered his Judas.

Don’t worry about exposing everyone who does you wrong. There is purpose in the pain. Faithfully and patiently walk through each season, bearing one another’s burdens. Try not to make a habit of judging everyone else, but look to God and seek after wisdom in changing yourself. Once you make it through to the other side, the seemingly difficult ones will separate themselves from the wolves. And they will come under your influence willingly. Keep Christ at the center of all you do, and God will build you up in Him.

Love without agenda. Love without seeing people as a means to an end, then see how your perspective of them changes.

El amor de cristo…The love of Christ. 1 5/5 (1)

Romanos 8: 35-39 La versión King James (KJV) dice:

35 ¿Quién nos separará del amor de Cristo? ¿Tribulación, angustia, persecución, hambre, desnudez, peligro o espada?

36 Como está escrito: Por ti nos matan todo el día; somos contados como ovejas para la matanza.

37 No, en todas estas cosas somos más que vencedores por medio de aquel que nos amó.

38 Porque estoy convencido de que ni la muerte, ni la vida, ni los ángeles, ni los principados, ni los poderes, ni las cosas presentes, ni las cosas por venir,

39 Ni la altura, ni la profundidad, ni ninguna otra criatura podrán separarnos del amor de Dios, que es en Cristo Jesús nuestro Señor.


Romans 8:35-39 King James Version (KJV) says:

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Integrity – ARC Thursday Bible Study Sept-19-2019 1 5/5 (1)

ARC Thursday Bible Study Sept-19-2019 with sister Edwards looked at Integrity with some introduction about the Character Traits of Jesus. And our character is often seen as how people see or perceive one to be. It’s sometimes misunderstood or misinterpreted. And a good reputation is hard (but not impossible) to gain back if it’s damaged by others. Our integrity in all areas of our life is essential, as Pastor Edwards said.

As sister Edwards mentioned tonight, to strive to live a life of integrity is one of the most important character features anyone can have. A character trait without integrity will not last if it’s not done within the context of the Bible.

To live a life full of integrity, we need to also be humble, show empathy in helping to lift someone up while being humble, show goodness, have authenticity or being genuine, among other things. We need to have honesty with integrity in our minds and have that all day long. What’s in our minds will become our actions and hence our lifestyle.

Ahora la fe es … Now faith is… 1 5/5 (1)

Ahora la fe es la sustancia de las cosas que se esperan, la evidencia de las cosas que no se ven.
Porque por él los ancianos obtuvieron un buen informe.

A través de la fe entendemos que los mundos fueron enmarcados por la palabra de Dios, de modo que las cosas que se ven no están hechas de las cosas que aparecen.

Por la fe, Abel ofreció a Dios un sacrificio más excelente que Caín, mediante el cual obtuvo testimonio de que era justo, Dios testificaba de sus dones: y por eso estaba muerto y aún hablaba.

Por fe, Enoc fue traducido para que no viera la muerte; y no fue encontrado, porque Dios lo había traducido: porque antes de su traducción tenía este testimonio, que agradó a Dios.

Pero sin fe es imposible complacerlo: porque el que viene a Dios debe creer que él es, y que él es un galardonador de los que lo buscan diligentemente.
Hebreos 11: 1-6 Versión King James (KJV)

Now faith is…

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Hebrews 11:1-6 King James Version (KJV)

Sharing Jesus by Debbie Sanders 1 5/5 (1)

We are called to be witnesses. We are the “advertisement of the church,” so to speak. Because we live a life of holiness, the way we dress stands out in the world. If we live according to the principles of the Word of God, we will look different, act different, and even talk different; therefore, our lives become a “sermon” to others, showcasing the principles that we follow.
Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men. 2 Cor 3:2
The Message Bible says, “Your very lives are a letter that anyone can read by just looking at you.”

The wonderful thing about this type of “lifestyle evangelism,” is that we will touch people that may never visit our church on their own. But when we can take Jesus to the street, then the effect is even more far reaching.

How do we engage others in a conversation about Jesus? It may begin with a simple smile, or “hello.” When asked how we are doing, a response of, “I’m blessed,” may open a door to explain why. A question of, “Why do you dress so differently than everyone else,” when responding with “I think it’s pretty important to God how I dress,” will most likely lead to further questions peaked by curiosity, and thus open the door to witness.

Or you could be like Hunter in Iowa who sparked interest in her boss, when she wore our TCG pin that states, “Let me tell ya’ll about my Jesus.” Hunter’s boss was so impressed with this statement of her faith, that she had to know more about it.

There are many great accessories available that will help you proclaim your Jesus to the world. The key is to connect with God before you connect with people, as stated by Kimberly Sciscoe in her book, “The Busy Woman’s Guide to Soulwinning.”
So, after you pray and ask God to lead you to hungry souls, then watch for the opportunities that God begins to open up for you.

Acts 1:8, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses.”

Club Meeting Idea:Take your meeting to a Mall. Pair the girls up, then ask them to do surveys in the mall, such as, “Excuse me, Sir. We are with Todays Christian Girl. Could I ask, if you had to choose, what would you pick, pepperoni pizza or cheese?” Another group may ask, “What would you say is your favorite, Starbucks or Jamba Juice?”

The group that completes the most surveys gets a Starbucks gift card. In this fun way, our girls will see how easy it is to talk to others. With tools you give them, they will feel more confident to talk to others about God.

Boldness in Prayer by Glenda Alphin 1 5/5 (1)

“No, I don’t want the blue one; I’d like the pink one instead, please.” “Can I have that burger with mayonnaise instead of mustard?” “Excuse me, but this is mine.” “Mommy, can I have that?”

Every day, humans profess opinions, desires, and wants. We have no problem with speaking boldly when it comes to self-preference or self-preservation. Why is it, then, that we struggle with boldness in prayer? This is something I have been working hard to apply, and teach others, for years; we must be bold when speaking with our Heavenly Father. Our pastor, William L. Sciscoe, taught us that to receive specific answers, our prayers must be specific. Being specific requires one to be bold.

Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (NKJV). I remember when we led a kid’s prayer room in the early 2000s. We taught the children they didn’t have to be shy when praying; they could talk to Jesus about whatever was bothering them. And, we impressed upon them the necessity of believing. Boldness without faith isn’t really boldness, it’s simply loud talk. Those children would line the downstairs hallway (or be laid out in the floor of a room), speaking in tongues and asking the Lord to move in the service that was about to happen. More than once, we would enter the sanctuary and watch as it came alive in the Spirit because of the young ones’ bold prayers.

What are we missing, ladies? What are we failing to understand? So many times, we let our circumstances cover up our minds. The enemy makes us forget that we must daily choose to speak boldly to ourselves, to the enemy, and to our situations. For the past couple of years, my self-talk has sounded something like this: “I am stronger than this.” “I can do all things through You, Jesus.” “Enemy, you will not win with me!” “Satan, you are done here!”

In 2012, our youngest daughter approached me during a house service and began to boldly proclaim a miraculous healing of the bursitis wracking my lower body with pain. I was instantly healed! That prayer was the result of training that prayers for scrapes or sickness happened before band-aids or pain reliever. I confess, I do not always remember that thought process. However, the key is to not let our humanity win, remembering that “in Him we live and move and have our being . . . ‘For we are also His offspring'” (Acts 17:28).

Practice boldness. Embrace it and watch what God will do!

The battle is the Lord’s. 1 4/5 (1)

ARC Sunday Service Sept 1, 2019 with Pastor Edwards…the battle is the Lord’s. The main Scripture came from 2 Chron 20:1-26.

As he preached, some of the many things Pastor Edwards said include the point that when our praise come after the foundation of true worship, it’s acceptable to God. And praise is really bragging about our God to the enemy. The battle we face in life is not ours but the Lord’s. If we want to confuse our enemy, we need to stop fighting back in our “natural” state.

Pastor Edwards also said the prophetic promise that no weapon that is formed against God’s children shall prosper against us (Isaiah 54:17) is still true today. And if God be for us who can be against us is also still true today (Romans 8:31). Sickness is a form of evil from the devil. And a lot of sickness have to stay away from us when we give God our all. As Psalm 34:7 KJV says: “The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.”
