GLMX #109: In Light of the Horrifying Tragedies Striking Our Nation and Our World, the Question Seems to Me to be, If You Were to Die Today, Where Would You Go, Heaven or Hell?

Daniel Whyte III asks the most important question that everyone needs to answer.

God is our Creator. He made man in His image and after His likeness. He is the absolute ruler over all He has made and has the ultimate prerogative to command man. God’s greatest commandments are these. To love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and might; and to love our neighbor as ourselves.

There are big questions that haunt all of us. What happens when I die? Where will I spend eternity? The single most important question that you will ever answer is this – “If I were to die today, would I spend eternity in Heaven with God?” Your relationship to Jesus Christ is central to the answer to that question.

The Bible tells us in I John 5:12, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life…” The simple truth is God wants you to know where you’re going! So, here it is in a nutshell: Continue Reading…

GLMX #108: How to Win At the Olympics of Life

Olympics

Olympics

Olympic events get our adrenaline going. The greatest athletes in the world have assembled for the 2012 Summer Games, just as they have since the first modern summer games in 1896.

But it’s not easy to compete in the Olympics. In the triathlon, athletes engage in swimming for nearly one mile, bicycling for nearly 25 miles, and then running for six miles.

Or how about the ten thousand meter races? Or the four hundred meter hurdles races?

Olympic competition is for an elite few. Not many can do these things well. For most of us, it’s hard enough to get out of bed in the morning. And while few experience the olympic thrill of victory, the rest of us are more familiar with smaller successes and the occasional agony of defeat. Life can be tough, filled with “I should’ve, could’ve, or would’ve” and not to mention “Uh-ohs” instead of gold medals.

Fortunately, there is someone who can empathize with our struggles. He suffered the ultimate agony of defeat: total rejection and pain, so we can win at the olympics of life. 700 years before He walked the earth, Isaiah the prophet had this to say about Jesus in Isaiah 53:3, “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief.”

Yet He suffered defeat for us. Verse 8 says, “…for the transgression of my people was he stricken.”

And then He had the greatest victory of all time: Rising from the dead! Verse 11 says, “He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied.” Jesus defeated death, lives forever, and has made a way for you and me to do the same.

GLMX #106: How to Have Peace in Difficult Times

We all long for peace. We want peace in our minds, in our hearts. We want peace in our family and our relationships and we want peace among nations.

THE WORLD IS A VERY STRESSFUL PLACE

Our fast paced competititve society and broken relationships keep us stressed out most of the time. Every day the media reminds us of war and political discord in our own country.

How can we keep our mind at peace without hiding our head in the sand? Magazines advertise products and activities to relieve our anxiety. Politicians advise diplomacy instead of war to make peace. Diplomacy works for awhile until another unmanageable, unforeseen crisis arises.

PEACE WITH GOD IS POSSIBLE

In His Word, the Bible, God says in Philippians 4:6-7: “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

HERE IS THE SECRET TO HAVING PEACE

Every time you feel stressed out go to God and lay that thought that is stressing you out at His feet. You might have to do it again and again. It does become easier as you practice this discipline. What you’re doing is letting go of control and giving God the right to be God in this situation. It’s only when we submit to God that He can give us peace.

If you have never placed your trust in Jesus Christ, you can trust and believe in Him today and receive His peace. The Bible says in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

You can tell Jesus Christ in a prayer like this: Jesus, I know I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sin and that You rose from the dead. I now trust in You as my Saviour. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is trusting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

GLMX #107: The “Light” Knight Rises

Jesus Christ said in John 8:12: “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

The long awaited epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy is almost upon us.

In part two, the Dark Knight, also known as Batman, saved Gotham City, but he could not save himself, as he ultimately had to take the blame for villain Harvey Dent’s crimes. Being hunted by the police, he was forced to leave the task of protecting Gotham City in Commissioner Gordon’s hands who managed to do a superb job in finally bringing peace to Gotham. After what seemed like ages, this was enough to convince Batman that Gotham City was safe and that Bruce Wayne need never put on the Batsuit again..or so it seemed…

Eight years since Batman vanished into the night, everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burgler with a mysterious agenda. But far more dangerous, far more sinister, far more dark and wicked, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham City drive Bruce Wayne out of his self-imposed exile. In this final part of the trilogy, Batman must face a foe unlike any he has ever faced and this time Batman may be no match for Bane.

Gotham is in need of its true Savior…will he rise?

Just like the citizens of Gotham, we too face a dark and dangerous terrorist. From the beginning of time he has and continues to torment our world. Death and fear cling to him like a cloak, he is the instigator of all wars and fuels the hate of humans. His lover is evil; murder and lies run close on his heels; and light is extinguished whenever he is near. Our tormentor is nimble and swift on foot, a clever, energetic, reckless monster who pursues all of humanity to claim their souls for his abode called Hell. His name is Satan and his mission is threefold: to kill, to steal, and to destroy.

Just like the citizens of Gotham, we too face a foe that we cannot defeat on our own.

Just like the citizens of Gotham, we too have a Saviour.

Unlike the citizens of Gotham, the question is not will our true Savior rise. He has risen already.

Unlike the citizens of Gotham, the question is not is our true Savior a match for Satan. Our Savior’s name is Jesus Christ and He is a match and more than a match. Face to face, Satan both fears and trembles in His presence.

The fact is He is coming again.

The question for you and me is are we ready for his return?
