Inspiration: Today’s society is influencing a lot of children to have no respect for authority or their parents. Subliminal TV shows portray children’s rebellion as funny, so children do not respect their teachers at school and even see the police (who protect them) as their enemy. However, I am happy to see that some Christians teach the right balance between discipline and love in their homes as well as respect for authority.

Inspiration: Few are promoting purity today. Movies and TV are showing more and more scenes that make sex outside marriage seem attractive and exciting. Young and old Christians are exposed to magazines in stores that have women with virtually no clothes on. However, the good news is that Jesus is the healer. Jesus can restore anyone that has been sexually active in an ungodly manner back to purity again. One man who practised homosexuality wanted desperately to be healed by God. He asked Jesus to heal him and God did. This man and his wife now have a ministry and help similar people become sanctified in Jesus.

Inspiration: A businessman was able to disregard impure lusts when he first became a Christian as he was so immersed in the Bible feeding his mind on the Word of God. However, over the years, he got too busy to read the Bible. He also started watching immoral TV shows and movies which stirred up lustful thoughts. After being convicted of his sin, he recommitted his life to Christ, making a covenant with the Lord with his eyes that they would be focused on the Word of God.

Inspiration For Wednesday, August 07, 2013

Inspiration: One Bible teacher spoke on the definition of death in this scripture as spiritual separation from God. Christians will warn the lost “Don’t smoke or you will get cancer,” or “Don’t go in that river as it is contaminated.” However when it comes to sharing Jesus with the lost in order that they might avoid spiritual death, it seems most Christians are afraid to say anything.

Inspiration: I am blessed to see many strong Christian marriages today. As I look at these marriages, I see many similarities. Each one of these Christian marriages have three things in common: 1) they go to church and serve God, 2) they have Bible reading and prayer times where the husband and wife pray together, 3) they act on what the Bible says where the wife guides the home and the husband takes the role as priest of the home.

Inspiration: One person who really got my walk going with God was an eighteen year old mentally challenged boy. I was not a Christian at the time, but volunteered to spend some time helping the mentally challenged and play games with them. As I looked into this boy’s eyes, I could sense that he knew God better than I did. I could see the love of Jesus in him and it was so pure that it challenged me to search more for God’s love.

Inspiration: A newspaper advertisement designer, who was 40 years old at the time, was challenged to attend church. He had never attended any church before so he took up and challenge and went. At this church he committed his life to Jesus. After his conversion to Christ, he started diligently reading a proverb and five psalms a day. This helped him to cover all the psalms and proverbs each month. He then joined the choir and wanted to sing intimate love songs to Jesus. Speaking psalms and singing hymns has given him new strength in his life.
