The Bible asks this question, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36) You might be debt free or even financially successful; however, the Bible states that you are in debt to God. “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one…For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:10, 23) Your debt to God must be paid.

Mothers are a very special part of God’s creation. The world would not be what it is today without mothers, especially those mothers who have faithfully and successfully raised their children with love, care, nurture, discipline, and in the ways of the Lord. A mother’s world is filled with the awesome responsibility to train up the next generation of young men and women to be servants and citizens of good moral character and integrity. Mothers take special pride in their children reaching their goals and accomplishing great things. We often see football players and basketball players thank two people after a major victory – God and their mother. Statistics show that nearly 50% of people consider their mothers to be the single most important influence in their lives.

Mothers are there to comfort, guide, and nurture; to love us unconditionally; to encourage us and support us; and to help create a positive environment for us to grow up in. Mothers also help to shape their children’s worldview of God, themselves, and other people. Motherhood is the single most important contribution that a woman can make to society. When God Himself sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth as a baby, God made sure He had a mother to take care of Him. Above and beyond all of the cooking, cleaning, playing, story-telling, and all the things that many mothers do, the most important thing a mother can do for her children is pray for them. Many children have turned out to be great servants of the Lord because their mothers made it her business to pray for them.

Susannah Wesley, the mother of the great preachers John and Charles Wesley is said to have prayed two hours each day for her children. St. Augustine’s mother, Monica, prayed that her son would serve God and he later become bishop of Hippo in North Africa. Hudson Taylor’s mother prayed that God would use her son one day and he turned out to be the greatest missionary to China. We could go on, but down through hundreds of years, mothers have taken to their prayer closets to pray for their children. These Godly mothers prayed earnestly for their children, God heard them and answered their prayers. These mothers had a deep and abiding relationship with God. They knew God for themselves and they made sure that their children knew Him as well.

If you are a mother and you do not know Jesus Christ for yourself, why not get to know Him on this Mother’s Day? It is the best thing you can do for yourself and your children. Allow me to show you how:

GLMX #95: What Are You Searching For?

At some point in life, everybody finds himself or herself searching for something.

When we are young, we search for meaning and purpose. We search for the perfect job or the right occupation that will make us feel fulfilled. We search for a husband or wife to spend our lives with. We search for the best college or university to attend. We search for the best way to live a healthy and long life.

The British singer and songwriter Melanie Chisolm said, “I just feel, in life, I’m searching for something I can rely on, something that’s constant and something that’s going to guide me through.” These words describe the greatest search that any of us will ever undertake.

If you are like Melanie Chisolm, and you are searching for something you can rely on, something that’s constant, and something that will guide you through life, I can honestly tell you that all of those things can be found in Jesus Christ. If you find Jesus Christ, you will have all three of those things.

GLMX #94: The Damascus Road to Heaven

In Acts 9, the Bible relates to us the conversion of Paul. Verses 1-7 reads, “And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.”

Paul, one of the greatest writers in the Bible, met Jesus Christ on the road to Damascus which is located in Syria. Syria is going through a very difficult time right now and many of the people there are looking for a transformation just like Paul had.

The uprising in the Arab nation of Syria began on January 26, 2011. For over a year, this ongoing internal violent conflict has waged on where protestors are demanding that the current President Bashar al-Assad resign from power so that nearly 50 years of Ba’ath Party rule can end. Since the violence and protests started, the Syrian army has been deployed to try to stop the uprising, several cities have been besieged, and to date, nearly 16,000 people have been killed including over 500 children. Reports say that an additional 400 children have been arrested and tortured in Syrian prisons. To try to escape the ongoing violence, thousands of Syrian refugees have fled the country. The Arab League, United States, European Union, and other countries have condemned the violence and have attempted to develop a peace plan and ceasefire for the country. To date, none of that has worked the violence has not ceased. Assad is still in power and thousands of Syrians continue to long for a Saviour to deliver them.

My friend, apparently, no one on earth is choosing to stop the violence, the fear, and the anguish that is spread abroad across Syria. Apparently, no one on earth is choosing to stop the bloodshed or wipe away the tears of the mothers whose children have been killed or lost. Dear friend, the only hope for Syria and the only hope for this sin-cursed world is Jesus Christ. Syria and much of the world is in constant turmoil right now over multiple issues, and the truth of the matter is, the government is powerless, the president of the United States is powerless, and the politicians and other governmental leaders are powerless. The only hope for peace in Syria and in the world is for the Prince of Peace to come. Jesus is the Saviour of the world and He wants to save every person who wants to be saved right now. And like the Apostle Paul saw the bright light of Jesus that day on the Damascus road, you need to see the bright light of Jesus as well.

GLMX #93: Who Will You Vote For?

Who will you vote for?

Who will you vote for?

Right now, the United States is in a presidential election season. Two men are running for the highest office in the land. Your family and friends have probably asked you ‘who will you vote for?’ Pundits want to know who you will vote for. Pollsters want to know who you will vote for. And of course, the candidates simply say, ‘vote for me.’

But right now, I want to let you know that there is an election going on that is more important than the presidency of the United States. In this election, two candidates are vying for the highest place in your heart. And yours is the only vote that matters.

One candidate promises you pleasure right now. But he doesn’t tell you that there will be pain later. This candidate will let you stay right where you are in life and let you keep on doing whatever you want to do. This smooth-talking candidate looks sharp and sounds smart. He will tell you whatever you want to hear to get you to cast your vote for him. This candidate’s name is Satan.

The other candidate tells you upfront that life will not be a bed of roses for you. But after your life, you will spend eternity in a place full of peace and harmony. This candidate will change your life and rock your world. He may not tell you everything you want to hear, but at least he will tell you the truth. This candidate’s name is Jesus Christ.

Both of these candidates want your heart. Both of these candidates want your soul. I want to encourage you to cast your vote for Jesus Christ.
