“We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers, remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father,”

1 Thessalonians 1:2-3 (NKJV)


I’m about to tell you something that, if you know me at all, will be very shocking. Ready?


I want you to be part of the “in” crowd.


Now, I know that I talk a lot about how materialism is the worst, most seductive evil that we face these days.  I preach that we’ve got to be sold out for Jesus enough that we don’t worry anymore about what the world wants us to do, that we need to make sure we’re accepted by Jesus rather than by the world.


So why am I saying that I want you in the “in” crowd?  It’s because I don’t want you left behind.  Look at our verses today.  I love this word “in” that is mentioned here, and my question is, “Are you in?”


The days in which we live are like the days of Noah.  What I mean is that Jesus is coming soon, and the days after that get ugly real fast.  And when it gets to that day, you’re either in or you’re out.  You can’t be playing the fence on this one. The Lord wants you in, in the family, in the fold, in relationship, not just close. Those who were close to the ark did not benefit from the ark.  Not just with, but in, committed for life.


I mean you are in Christ and Christ is in you.  Your faith is in Christ.  Your love is in Christ.  Your patient hope is anchored in Christ; committed, in for life.  I mean, locked down and locked up.  You’re in.  No way out.


Are you completely in Christ — committed to Christ for life?  If not, right now you need to pray to the Lord about this.  This is the most important decision of your life.


Get off the fence.  Stop being a spectator.  You need in.  You need to be part of this “in” crowd.

Application For The Day:

I encourage you to come and join the family today.  Jesus is coming soon!

Prayer For The Day:

Father God, thank You for giving me the chance to come to You before You return.  Whatever it takes, I turn to You today so that I will always be found in You alone.  Come save me today, in Jesus’ Name.

    Those who were close to the ark did not benefit from the ark. That’s something to chew on.

    I am in all the way. I will not be on the outside looking in. I’ll be where Christ wants me to be. A believer who obeys.

    We either have to be in or out. For me, I’m IN.

    What great day. For this is a day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it. During this fast I was coming home from work and my right elbow started hurting. I thought it was nothing but as the evening went on it got worst. Pastor said, for some on the fast their situation might get worst before it gets better. I have been praying that God heal my knees but for some reason the attack come on my elbow. The pain got so bad, I thought I needed to go to the emergency room. I called my wife Michelle down and she says it’s only one doctor you need to to call on and that’s our father in heaven. She said let’s pray. She began to speak over this elbow and I started praying in the spirit. Before you know it, I was clapping my hands and just thanking GOD for healing me. I remind you that before I started praying I could not bend or lift my arm or bend my elbow. I am glad to say that praying in the spirit and giving GOD the glory cured my elbow. It’s back to 100 percent. PRAISE GOD!!!
