HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!


Happy-Birthday-to-me

March 13, 1983 at approximately 11:31am by youth pastor dragged me into the Pastors office.  He sat me down across from the desk and looked me in the eyes and said, “Spencer, you have been playing church long enough, get in or get out!”

I was shocked!

HOW DARE HE TALK TO ME THAT WAY!!

I had grown up in church.  I was in church before the week was out from my escape from the womb.  All my years I remember going to church because our family was so involved.  My dad was the Sunday School superintendent, song leader, board member, and my mom was a teacher as well.  We were always in church!  Every Sunday morning, Sunday evening, Wednesday, Thursday and most Fridays something was happening in a church environment.

BUT……

Church does not get you to heaven!

Mom & Dad cannot get you to heaven!

ONLY JESUS!!!!

On this date 34 years ago that youth pastor gave me an ultimatum, “GET IN OR GET OUT”.

Who does he think he is!!!

How dare he talk to me that way!!

IT SAVED MY LIFE…..AT 11:31AM I CONFESSED JESUS AS MY SAVIOR AND HAVE NEVER TURNED BACK.  

I have stumbled a few times, but I have never gone back to the devil’s side.

WHAT WAS YOUR NEW BIRTH DATE?

HOW AND WHO DID JESUS SEND INTO YOUR LIFE THAT BROUGHT YOU TO A DECISION?

SHARE YOUR SALVATION WITH SOMEONE TODAY!!!

John 3:3, Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Eph 2:8-9,  For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Rev. 12:11a, And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony.

AMPUTATING TONGUE


the tongue

OUR TONGUES ARE SO POWERFUL!

Let’s be honest, most of the time we hear people talking about other people it is not an encouraging conversation.

HOW MANY PEOPLE, INCLUDING YOURSELF, DO YOU KNOW THAT HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY WOUNDED BY THE TONGUE OF ANOTHER?

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU WOUNDED?

James 3:3-10, A bit in the mouth of a horse controls the whole horse. A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it! 5-6 It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke and go up in smoke with it, smoke right from the pit of hell. 7-10 This is scary: You can tame a tiger, but you can’t tame a tongue—it’s never been done. The tongue runs wild, a wanton killer. With our tongues we bless God our Father; with the same tongues we curse the very men and women he made in his image. Curses and blessings out of the same mouth!

TODAY I CHALLENGE YOU TO BE ONE WHO CONTROLS THEIR TONGUE.

Do not get involved in that office, that table, that water cooler conversation that chews people up and spits them out!

CHOOSE TO BE THE ONE WHO LEAVES THE CONVERSATION TO INTERJECT A KIND, JESUS-FILLED WORD.

Tame your tongue today and stop the amputation of a person’s character and life.

BE LIKE JESUS!
