I hope everyone took the time to thank God for the beautiful days and all our blessings. Everything we have belongs to God; He made it possible for us to have it, so let’s be thankful to God…Amen?

This is called Jesus, the truth. We are reading from John 8:31-46.

John 8:31-32 is our focal point. But I would read all John 8 to understand what Jesus is talking about.

How is your relationship with Jesus, the truth? Jesus is the Living Word sent by God the Father. I got a quote for you “A Christian is not necessarily a disciple of Jesus BUT disciples of Christ are certainly Christians – believers who have leaned and are continuing to learn more and more of Christ Jesus. When we obey the Word of God and learn of Christ we grow in spiritual knowledge, our spiritual understanding matures”.  Listen, you don’t need to have a theological degree to preach the gospel. Preaching is about sharing Jesus, the truth. It’s about speaking the Word of God simply. God gave you the most precious gift of all, “Jesus” the truth, the way and the only life you will ever need. All through the OT Jesus was there. All the writers from Moses to Malachi pointed to Jesus. We need to thank God for sending Jesus to this dark world to save us and we can only be saved if we trust, believe and have faith in Christ: He is our redeemer. He is the only way to God the Father. Amen!

Verse of the day…. John 8:32

He is the Redeemer of the world, who died for sinners,
the One who is the Soon-coming King!

Blessings All!
Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS.
So as we go through our day let us go out to help and to care for all that need it, in Jesus’ name…Amen!

We call this one Jesus, the way.  We will read from John 14:1-11 and we will look closely to verse 6. Now, I don’t think I need to tell you how very important this is to our salvation…right? As verse 6 says “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Salvation comes only by faith, and faith is by hearing God’s word! And without faith it is impossible to please God. Nothing we can do physically can please God… nothing!

Which brings me to our duty as a Christian. We must be ready to stand up for the gospel when there is a discussion on which roads lead to heaven. God has clearly told us in His Word that there is only one way to heaven and it is through Jesus Christ His Son! Read (Matthew 7:13-14) So how will people know this if we don’t tell them? It is our job to tell them. Are we reluctant to stand up for the truth? Do we shrink down when we hear something wrong? God has called us to be the salt and light to the world around us. May God grant us boldness and wisdom!
Read John 14:1-11

Verse of the day…. John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by Me”.

I would like to ask you all to pray for the flood situation in NB and the volcanic situation in Hawaii as many are battling to save their homes and possessions. May we always serve our God with our homes and possessions. Anyways, I hope you all had a great weekend and I pray that this week brings you happiness and joy in God’s love, Amen!

This part is called Jesus, the living water.  Read from John 7:37-52 focusing on verses 37 to 39.

Do you remember when we started this journey? The very first thing I said to read? It was John 1:1. Everything in the Christian life is dependent upon faith; upon believing. Do you believe? And in whom do you believe? We are to believe in Jesus Christ. We are to have faith in Jesus, the Son of Abba the Father – the living water!

Too many Christians get caught up in dogma, doctrine and works (law). I have no problem with this as long as it does not take the place of what is important and what is truth… faith in the Son of God! Read what “Romans 10:17” tell us.  This is how we receive faith; by listening to the Word. Jesus came to this world so we could see the Word made flesh! As followers of God’s Son, we should be sharing that Living Water. We have what people around us desperately need, so tell others about Jesus the living water. Remember what Jesus said to us… that if we acknowledge Him in front of men, He will acknowledge us in front of His Father who is in heaven, but if we deny Him in front of men he will deny us in front of YHWH (Yahweh) God His Father who is in heaven (Matt 10:32-33)!

Remember this beloved hymn?
Fill My Cup, Lord
-Like the woman at the well I was seeking
For things that could not satisfy.
And then I heard my Saviour speaking-
“Draw from my well that never shall run dry.”
Chorus 
Fill my cup, Lord; I lift it up, Lord;
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul.
Bread of heaven, feed me till I want no more-
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole.
-There are millions in this world who are craving
The pleasures earthly things afford.
But none can match the wondrous treasure
That I find in Jesus Christ my Lord.
-So my brother, if the things this world gives you
Leave hunger that won’t pass away
My blessed Lord will come and save you
If you kneel to Him and humbly pray.

Verse of the day…. John 7:38   (http://www.cyberoutlaws.com/prayer/page21.html)

He is the Redeemer of the world, who died for sinners, the One who is the Soon-coming King!

Blessings All!
Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS… 
So as we go through our day let us go out to help and to care for all that need it, in Jesus’ name…Amen!

Before we start, we wish to say a prayer for all those that have been affected by the St. John River flooding. Let’s pray for hope and help for all those in trouble with the water damage that God will help them through this. Amen.

This part of the journey is called Jesus, the heir of all things. Let’s read Hebrews 1:1-14 and focus on verse 2. No book gives us so many descriptions of Jesus and the work of Jesus as does the book of Hebrews. In it, Christ is said to be God’s final Word. In fact if your were to read all 13 chapters; you will see there are many titles and descriptions for Jesus but the one that captures Jesus (the man) and the work He did is in Heb. 1:2 “heir of all things”. We also have an inheritance; the eternal inheritance that God has promised to His people (me and you) and secured for them in Christ. We are to trust in Jesus with our daily needs, and through Him, (as God has told us) we will be inheritors of His kingdom.

Hebrews 1:1-14
1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world; 3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.  5 For to which of the angels did He ever say:
“You are My Son, Today I have begotten You”?
And again: “I will be to Him a Father, And He shall be to Me a Son”?
6 But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: “
Let all the angels of God worship Him.”   7 And of the angels He says: “Who makes His angels spirits And His ministers a flame of fire.”
8 But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.  9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”   10 And: “You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. 11 They will perish, but You remain;
And they will all grow old like a garment; 12 Like a cloak You will fold them up, And they will be changed. But You are the same, And Your years will not fail.”
13 But to which of the angels has He ever said:  “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

Verse of the day… Hebrews 1:2  (http://www.cyberoutlaws.com/prayer/page20.htm)

He is the Redeemer of the world, who died for sinners, the One who is the Soon-coming King!

Blessings All!
Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS… 
So as we go through our day let us go out to help and to care for all that need it, in Jesus’ name…Amen!

May He keep you safe through this coming weekend.
As we continue in this journey we see Jesus praying many times to His Father, so this is called Jesus, the prayer warrior. Jesus knew how to pray to His Father. We need to treat God with respect because Jesus did. We pray to the Father through the Son, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
John 14 12-14 

Read Matthew 6:5-13 focus on verse 6 and 7. Jesus was asked how to pray by his disciples. They saw Jesus praying and asked him how to pray (Luke 11:1). Now don’t go to God with a shopping list – give me this, give me that. Jesus said: “Give us this day our daily bread”. God gave the Israelites in the wilderness enough for each day. They got greedy and tried to pick up more manna than they could eat. You know what happened? It went rotten. Don’t store up riches here on earth when you have untold riches in heaven (Matthew 6:19-21). Be content with what you have and God will provide you with what you need. He knows what you need and when you need it. Don’t push Him for more than what you need! When you pray the prayer that Jesus taught, feel it in your heart… say it slow and listen to the words.

Matthew 6:5-13   —  In this manner, therefore, pray:

Our Father in heaven,   Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.  Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Verse of the day…  Matthew 6:6

He is the Redeemer of the world, who died for sinners, the One who is the Soon-coming King!

Blessings All!  Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS… 
So as we go through our day let us go out to help and to care for all that need it, in Jesus’ name…Amen!

As long as you have God in your days and you glorify Him by telling all those around you that it is God who makes your day GREAT; your days will be good… Amen!

This part of the journey is called Jesus, the model of the Father. I know there are many books, chapters and verses in the Bible that talk about this but we will look into the book of John (and you should be looking at them all if possible). Let’s read John 5:16-23, but we will be looking more at verse 19.

We have read that Jesus modeled many things for His disciples, one of which was being obedient to His Father. Being obedient to the Father eventually led Jesus to Calvary were He paid the ultimate price to secure our Salvation. The older I become in my faith of my Lord; the more I want to be obedient to Him. Jesus has taught me how to be obedient to our Father. God the Father is more interested in our day to day obedience then any grand gesture we might seek to make. So if you want to please God the Father then follow the example that Jesus (His Son) has laid out for you. If Jesus could do nothing outside of the Father, how can we ever think that we could??? So let us walk humbly with our Lord.

Verse of the day… John 5:19  

He is the Redeemer of the world, who died for sinners, the One who is the Soon-coming King!

Blessings All!  Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS…

Remembering our brother, BGen (Ret’d) Larry Lashkevich

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

On Sunday evening, 15 April, a good friend and fellow soldier of the cross, BGen (Ret’d) Larry Lashkevich passed into the presence of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Larry had suffered a major stroke in February from which he was not able to recover.  Larry was an exemplary individual whose love for Jesus energized him in his life of service in the name of Christ.  Larry had been an influential force within the Military Christian Fellowship of Canada for most of his military career and served for many years in its primary leadership role.  Larry, was always, no matter what the circumstances, an encourager. Consistently, he provided encouragement to those he led, with whom he worked and to those who served Jesus by serving the military community.  I will best remember Larry for his joy, his insight and his untiring devotion to Christ and his family.  Larry was a big man, whose heart for Jesus was even bigger.  His passing leaves a hole in my heart and the hearts of many across the military community, not only in Canada, but internationally. While, Larry’s passing is difficult for those who remain behind, the mission that he served has not ceased and we are called to press on to take hold of that which Christ has called us to.

I ask that you all join me in offering prayer of thanksgiving, praise and intercession:

“Abba, Father; we thank You that Larry’s earthly suffering has concluded and that He is now with You. You blessed us with Your presence and work in and through Larry and we are all better servants because of His example of leadership and discipleship.  Lord, we appeal to You, to pour Your mercy and grace over his family and friends.  You know the pain and the loss that they are all feeling, so we ask You Lord to manifest Your presence tangibly in our lives that we may know the peace that passes understanding and that we may have uncommon strength to endure and to accomplish all that needs to be done in response to Your call on our lives.  Please Lord raise up your saints to come along side Larry’s family to bring Your love and support both practical and spiritual.  We ask all these things in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, Amen.”

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

There will be a Celebration of the Life of Larry on Sunday, April 22 between 14:00 and 16:00 at Kanata Baptist Church.  It is a drop in format. More information at the link provided if you wish to join family and friends.
