Adding to the List

I'm not sure I'll be able to finish my Summer Reading List by the end of the season(I'm kind of a slow reader). But I felt like I needed to add these two books to the list,

"Fleeced" by Dick Norris and Eileen McGann, "A book about how Barack Obama, liberals who want to kill talk radio, the do nothing congress and companies that help Iran are scamming us... and what to do about it."

"Culture Shift" by Albert Mohler Jr. "Engaging current issues with timeless truths"

Also, I'll try to read the books some of you recommended.

Studying God's Word

Don't study God's word to get it over with, study it to expand your knowledge of our savior.

Knowledge of the Bible is so vital to our spiritual growth, that if we don't study his word we will become spiritually hungry and we will not grow. Also, we must not study it to get it to over with so that we can get on with something else, but we must be completely concentrated when we study it.

I have to admit that I often find myself speeding through my morning devotions so that I can get to something else. And this is not how I'm going to advance spiritually. That "something else" should not be more important than studying God's word.

In "The Lord's Prayer" it asks God to "Give us this Day, our Daily Bread." What does he mean by this? I think it means that were not just asking God to give us our physical food but our spiritual food also, so that we will not become physically or spiritually hungry.

Jesus' Obedience

Being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. -Philippians 2:8

That amazes me, Jesus was obedient even to the point of a slow painful death on a tree. Beside the physical pain, he willingly became a curse for us and bore all our sin. He wasn't forced to die, he willingly and obediently did it. It just boggles my mind..... how could someone so holy and perfect, willingly become a curse and die for someone so wretched and sinful.

Galatians 3:13- "Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us - for it is written, cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree." The King of Kings became cursed for us, and he did so without a single complaint.

Fear Not

When life gets hard, and we don't understand why, it can be easy to become afraid and doubt God; it may even seem that he is not there. But just because it seems that he is not with us in those hard times, and we can't see what he is doing through it, Isaiah 41:10 says "Fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." No matter how hard it gets, we know from God's promise in Isaiah 41:10 that he will uphold us and strengthen us through our hard times.

John 16:33- "I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. but take heart; I have overcome the world." We don't need to understand why God is putting us through these hard times, we just need to know that he will help. He will strengthen and uphold us. We don't see the big picture, but God does and he is in control. It lends great comfort to know and believe that everything God does is for our good even when, through our limited vision, it may not look like it.

"Pro-Life Teenagers" and "Teen Fellowship Group"(TGF)

I'm sorry I haven't posted in such a long time, I haven't had Internet the past few days.

I encourage you to go check out the website, "Pro-life Teenagers"/"TFG." For those of you who have never been to either of these sites, "Pro-Life Teenagers" is a site that was that created to help fight abortion and encourage other teens to fight it, "Teen Fellowship Group" is a site that was created to provide a place where Christian teens can fellowship and encourage each other in the Lord. The combining of these two site sites has exited me very much, and I pray that they will continue to do everything for the glory of God.
