Come On In

  1.       ''If you knew Jesus was coming to visit you at your house tonight, would you run to the door to welcome him with open arms, or would you (we) need to rush around to hide some things. What do you have in your home that you (we) would be ashamed for him to find?''
          This was a post from my cousin, Gina, on her facebook page and I thought it was a good point to ponder.  Everything we have and own belong to God but would He want to claim it?  Music and movie collections, are they an encouragement to the soul?  Is your home an example of earthly hoarding or an example of humble giving?
          It's okay to surround yourself with things you enjoy and make you happy but there are limits to one's greed and self indulgence.  We must give our first fruits to God, not the leftovers.  'In my house, we will serve the Lord.'  It's not just a saying but should be a way of life.


  1. Always a good reminder, Angie. It's so easy to become entangled with the world system, rather than keeping our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.

  2. Okay, there's a bunch of it, but I pray it is all God-glorifying. It might take Him a little while to "read the walls", but I pray He would be pleased with the messages there. Too much're stepping on my toes again! Love you, T.

  3. I can't wait for Him to get here.
