Thought For Today

The Dividing Line

Lines are everywhere! There are lines in parking lots to designate the parking spaces. There are lines drawn at intersections so that pedestrians know where to cross the street. There are little, but important, lines drawn on rulers to show units of measure. There are lines drawn on baseball diamonds, basketball courts, and football fields to help the players and referees know if the balls, and players, are in or out.

Lines can be very important. They help us know where we stand. We are either on one side of the line or the other.

Exodus 32 tells us that Moses drew a line. Here's why: God's people had participated in a drunken party and had worshiped a golden calf. Drunken idolaters! Moses knew that God demands that people love, obey and worship only Him. In a very courageous move, Moses stepped in front of all those people and drew a line by saying, "Who is on the Lord's side? Let him come to me...." (Exo_32:26). That day, many crossed the line by standing with Moses and the Lord.

Jesus, too, drew a line when He called those from the multitude to follow Him. Jesus' words make a very clear line: either you are for Christ or you are against Him. That same line exists today. We must decide on which side of that line we will stand.

Many choose to stand on both sides of the line. And for those individuals Jesus replies, "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot; I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth" (Rev_3:15-16). There is no middle ground with the Lord. In fact, for those who try, it makes Him sick to His stomach. Take a stand on God's side.

“For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.  (7)  I have fought a good fight, I have finished [my] course, I have kept the faith:  (8)  Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:6-8 

Junior Church

This week, as always, we ask for your prayers in all areas of this ministry. Such as what God would have us to teach each week, what the sermon will be, what questions to ask the children during our games to review for that day and always, always, prayer that we are good examples for the kids in and out of Jr. Church. We thank God for the one soul saved last week. Please pray for little Casey. All our new Christians need to be nurtured. We "mature" Christians need to nurture. Remember him in your prayers and that each week we might rejoice in another little brother or sister coming to Christ. This week we will be teaching on "getting revenge" (not doing it, of course) and how that God wants us to handle situations in which people hurt our feelings or bully us. Pray for guidance. Thank you parents and grandparents and neighbors that are faithful to go get and bring in these children.

God bless you,

Bobby and Jr. Church staff
