No Time Like The Present

Take any opportunity to share your faith; leave the results to God (Acts 28:23-25a). #ShareJesusNow https://www.bible.com/116/act.28.23-25.nlt

MORNING WATCH NOTES:

A time was set for Paul to explain this “movement“ of Christ followers to Jewish leaders in Rome. A large number of them showed up at Paul’s lodging place. Paul spoke to them from the Old Testament Scriptures explaining the gospel, that the expected Messiah, Jesus, had come. He spoke from morning until evening. Many argued and reasoned among themselves regarding all that Paul said. Some were persuaded, but others not.

Many there are who will hear the gospel and not believe. They may reason within themselves, or among themselves, over one point or another. They want to reason their way out of believing. Until, at last, they can reason no more. It is the Spirit upon whom we must rely to bring people to faith in Christ. Reason alone will not convince. Lord, use this aged sentry in taking every opportunity to share a careful and thoughtful witness of how Jesus has changed my life.

  1. ****************************No Time Like The Present by Deanne

    My testimony begins in Anchorage, Alaska as a young girl. Oh how I loved Precious Jesus. My Dad was in the Air Force. My parents bought a house in a valley surrounded by mountains called Nunaka Valley.

    I loved climbing in the mountains, I would ask Momma if I could go and she would say yes. I felt so close to Jesus up in the mountains around my neighborhood. I felt so protected, I would sing and talk to Jesus up on the mountain. My family was active in our church, I loved when singing groups would come to our church in revivals and I felt the presence and anointing of God flowing through the church and freedom in worship, the power of God was very present. People were being saved, healed, bondages broken and people delivered. It was so wonderful.

    Alaska is so beautiful and my family would go sightseeing all over. Wonderful memories I cherish from Kid’s Camp. After the night services, there was praise music and they opened up the altars to everyone and I would go up and pray to Jesus and His Presence surrounded me. He touched every place in my heart. When He touched me I felt how much He loved me. I was (and I am) so in love with Him. I remember my parents would take us to revivals at other churches and I always wanted to go be with Jesus at the altar and sometimes Momma would say “Deanne, it’s for salvation this time.”

    One special memory was the Star on the mountain; it brought me so much love, joy and hope. It reminded me of Christ Jesus’ birth. If I was outside I would look up and see it shining with God’s love and Jesus’s love for me, for you, for the world.

    *Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is just the same today as He was watching over the young girl climbing in the mountains singing to Him and looking for His Star on the side of the mountains in Alaska.

  2. **************************************************************** Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! O what a foretaste of glory divine! Heir of salvation, purchase of God, born of His Spirit, washed in His blood. This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long; This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long.

    Perfect submission, perfect delight, visions of rapture now burst on my sight; angels descending bring from above echoes of mercy, whispers of love. This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long; This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long.

    Perfect submission, all is at rest; I in my Savior am happy and blest; watching and waiting, looking above, filled with His goodness, lost in His love. This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long; This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long.
