Pedaling Against Crime

#1 Nov 24, 2013
I miss the good old days when I was a child going to Sunday school in a small country church. It was neat to be around good hearted people, spend time with a handful of children my age, and get a wonderful education about things that matter most in life. I welcome you to join me on this thread and share in conversation that would please our great Father in Heaven.
Earlier this week I was watching TV when I saw where a wreck had happened in Nashville. It involved a pregnant woman in one car and a man in the other. This poor woman was trapped and could not get out. What could the man do? Well, he got on his knees and prayed. The authorities arrived and the rescue services freed the woman. The news company actually reported this on TV; I was so proud. Both the man and woman were taken to the hospital and the last report that I saw said they were going to be OK. What kind of faith does a person have to have to think that their prayers could matter, that prayer at such a critical time could even be answered?
In the New Testament we find stories of a centurion who requested the aid of Jesus to help his ailing servant. A centurion was a leader in the Roman army and could be in control of as many as 200 to 1000 soldiers. Jesus offered to go to the centurion’s house to help the servant, but the centurion insisted that he was not worthy to have Jesus in his house, despite the centurion’s own power and authority over many people. Humbly he asked that Jesus simply heal his servant from afar, that only his word would be necessary for the healing act. Jesus declared to the people around that he had not seen this level of faith in all of Israel and told the centurion to go, that it would be done as he wished. The servant was healed in that same hour.
Thank God for the comfort he provides us in our times of need and the many prayers he answers. Just call on the Almighty and he will be there for you. I encourage all to read this story and many others in the Bible. Share your kind thoughts on this thread, and remember, always look toward the light…….

So, that woman lived because a man knelt next to her and prayed? I'm very glad she lived but that doesn't prove god intervened. Maybe he did. Maybe he didn't. Who knows?

Good early morning Mr. Jox.
If your question draws an aggressive response please understand that for those who turn their lives over to Jesus, it troubles them to have their Savior questioned after the great sacrifice that he has made. It is the same to them as insulting a close family member. I ask you to try to understand this and not take offense. They are good-hearted people and only want the very best for you, even if it seems they are mad.
Was there Devine Intervention in this crash? Would the woman have been OK anyway? Perhaps. The man did not know that, however, so he did the best that he knew how to do. He turned to someone for help that knew him. He turned to God.
If you need to borrow money, who do you have a better chance with; a bank that doesn't know you and can't verify that you have good credit or a bank that has a history of doing good business with you? The Lord answers prayers for those who turn their hearts over to him. Is the Lord able to verify your good credit?
Your mind is a powerful tool, but even more powerful is a heart powered by Jesus. Where is your heart? Would you travel through life alone and without God, managed only by the steps that you take? I challenge you to learn and understand the sacrifice that Jesus made, but it must be understood with the heart, not just the mind. Put your mind and your pride to the side. Humbly ask God for his Salvation. When you really get to this point, he will fill your heart with his love and you will understand.
May God bless you sir, and may you find your way to him.

Good Sunday morning dear friends. There is ice and rain outside so be careful if you get out on the roads this morning. I hope you can find a safe path to the church of your choice this morning, but if not you can join me on The Sunday School Thread and we’ll see what blessings the Good Lord has in store for us.
You know, I think that I would be afraid to receive a “calling to preach”. I’ve heard many preachers talk about how far they went to get away from preaching, once God had assigned them this duty. It’s not that they were lazy. It’s that they were scared to try to meet up to such a high standard. God had directed Jonah to deliver a message, but Jonah chose to try to escape God’s will. It’s not always easy to do what God tells us, but never fear. Obedience yields amazing blessings.
I remember my Sunday School teacher used to emphasize that it was a fish that swallowed Jonah, not a whale. He warned that changing the holy word was very dangerous. He was very true to the King James Version of the Bible. He felt it was important to hold true to the holy word.
What does the Bible mean to you? I hope it fills your heart as it does mine. May you have a terrific day, and always remember to look toward the light!

Long ago a man found himself in a terrible situation. He was about to be executed for a crime he had committed. Now if this wasn’t bad enough, his only salvation, Jesus, was beside him being tortured as well. He loved and believed Jesus, and it must have hurt him terribly to see his savior suffer, because he fired back at mean taunts aimed at Jesus. He knew they were going to die, and he had a pretty good idea where Jesus was going. He asked Jesus to remember him when he got to his kingdom. Jesus told him that today he would be in paradise with him. What wonderful mercy! Is paradise in the future for you?
This story is in St. Luke Chapter 23. I challenge you to read it and understand the sacrifice Jesus made.
Have a wonderful Sunday. I hope you can make it to church and whatever you do thank Jesus for his love. He wants you to be happy and prosper.

When poet Charlotte Elliott (1789-1871) was 46 years old, an elderly man approached her at a dinner party and asked if she was a Christian. She considered him rude and unkind, and that his question was inappropriate. After the man walked away, Charlotte could not get his question out of her mind so she went to find the man, and to ask how to become a Christian. That night she received Jesus as her Lord and Savior. Soon thereafter she wrote Just As I Am as a testimony to her newfound faith, and as a tribute to the man who had told her that she could come to Christ,'just as she was'. Over the remainder of her life Charlotte wrote 150 hymns.

Just As I Am

Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot,
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, though tossed about
With many a conflict, many a doubt,
Fightings and fears within, without,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
Yea, all I need in Thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
Because Thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, Thy love unknown
Hath broken every barrier down;
Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, of that free love
The breadth, length, depth, and height to prove,
Here for a season, then above,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Yes, BB. It was as "simple" as that for the one who hung on another cross next to our King Jesus; that he just BELIEVE that Christ is, was and always will be King. Love this lesson!

Miss E, I loved your post!!!! Awesome! I love learning about stories like that! I guess every song and hymn has a story behind it!:)

Low in the grave He lay,
Jesus, my Savior,
Waiting the coming day,
Jesus, my Lord!

Vainly they watch His bed,
Jesus, my Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead,
Jesus, my Lord!
Death cannot keep his Prey,
Jesus, my Savior;
He tore the bars away,
Jesus, my Lord!

Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!

Happy first day of the week everyone.
