Isaiah 55:10-11

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth fruit and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

When a Christian shares the Word of God with someone, it is like planting and watering seed.  In every case, the Word of God will not return void!  Ultimately, God will give the increase.  It is not our responsibility to get certain results from sharing the Word of God, it is just our duty to share it.  The Holy Ghost is the one that will convict the heart of sinners, and we must leave that up to Him.  We may never see the fruit from sharing the Word of God, but it doesn’t mean that the Holy Ghost is not at work.  We are promised that His Word will never return void.  This should encourage us to share the Word of God more than we ever have!  How many people have you witnessed to this past week about the Lord Jesus Christ?  How many Gospel tracts have you passed out?  Let us all begin share the Word of God more every day! Amen.

Psalm 139:23-24

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

As we begin our Spring cleaning in our homes, let us not forget to examine ourselves and do some “Spring cleaning” of our lives, including things in our thoughts or hearts that shouldn’t be there.  The Word of God refers to itself in many places to act as a “cleansing agent” to us.  The more we read that blessed old Book, the cleaner our lives will be.  If you have neglected the Word of God in your devotional life, there are probably unclean thoughts that have lingered in your mind, and ill feelings that have stayed in your heart, and you need to do some “Spring cleaning” right away!  Would you pray this prayer of the Psalmist, and ask God to search your heart and mind, and reveal to you the things that shouldn’t be there, so that you may start fresh today?  Let us all seek to live a cleaner life for the glory of God!  Amen.

1 Peter 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

At the heart of Christianity is the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.  No other religion is based upon the historical fact that Someone has risen from the dead!  This is unique to Christianity and sets it apart from all other religions.  Since Jesus has risen from the dead in His glorified body, every born again Christian has this lively hope, with the assurance of knowing that one day soon, they too shall receive an everlasting, incorruptible, glorified body likened unto the Lord’s, when we shall be raised to die no more!  Let us spread the Good News this Easter weekend to our lost family members, and to a lost and dying world, that Jesus is alive, and that they too can be made alive in Him!  Amen.
