Can I Control My Thoughts?


Can I Control My Thoughts

 The world (media) is constantly bombarding us with its message. Sometimes we surprise ourselves with what we think. Is it even possible in this day and time to control our thoughts?

What Does The Bible Say?

 Philippians 4:8 says... "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

 In this verse we learn the secret of controlling our thoughts. It is not enough to avoid bad thoughts; we fill our minds with good thoughts.

 Paul says:
1. If it is true, think about it.
2. If it is honorable, think about it.
3. If it is just, think about it.
4. If it is pure, think about it.
5. If it is lovely, think about it.
6. If it is gracious, think about it.
7. If it is excellent, think about it.
8. If it is worthy of praise, think about it.

You see...your mind will be so full of good stuff; there will be no room for the bad.
Can you control your thoughts?

 The Bible says yes! Actually, in Philippians 4:13 it says... "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

 The idea of judgment before God is frightening to some and denied by others.
What Does The Bible Say?

Romans 2:1-16 says...Therefore you have no excuse, O man, whoever you are, when you judge another; for in passing judgment upon him you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, are doing the very same things. We know that the judgment of God rightly falls upon those who do such things. Do you suppose, O man, that when you judge those who do such things and yet do them yourself, you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you presume upon the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience? Do you not know that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But by your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed. For he will render to every man according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are factious and do not obey the truth, but obey wickedness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for every one who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. For God shows no partiality. All who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified. When Gentiles who have not the law do by nature what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that what the law requires is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness and their conflicting thoughts accuse or perhaps excuse them on that day when, according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus.

 In this one passage of scripture, we learn a lot about God's judgment.
1. God's judgment if Right. Romans 2:2
There will be no overturning His judgment.
2. God will judge each man according to his work. Romans 2:6
What you do in this life really matters.
3. God will judge all men. Romans 2:6
There will be no escaping the judgment of God.
4. God will judge without favor. Romans 2:11
"For God shows no partiality."
5. When God judges men, all will be known. Romans 2:16
There will be nothing hidden.

 Since Judgment Day is coming, it is essential to be in Christ.

Jesus' Birth


Jesus’ Birth

          There is a lot of talk about the birth of Jesus this time of the year. What is the real significance of it?

What Does The Bible Say?

          John 1:1-5 says… “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through him and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.”

          When John tells the story, he does not start in eternity.

1.    The Word (Jesus) was in the beginning. He is eternal. He is God.

2.    The Word (Jesus) was with God. Where ever God the Father was the Word was there.

3.    The Word (Jesus) was God.

4.    Creation (the universe) was made through the Word (Jesus) and by the Word (Jesus).

5.    The Word (Jesus) is the source of life.

6.    Darkness cannot overcome the Word (Jesus).


No wonder the angels sang. No wonder wise men still seek Him.
