December 7, 1941

On December 7, 1941 Japanese planes attacked Pearl Harbor killing more than 2,300 Americans. This attack catapulted the United States into World War II.

We at the Christian Gaming Community offer prayers of thanks and blessings to all of the men and women and their families that served at Pearl Harbor on that day of infamy. We also lift up in prayer to all those that serve in our country’s military past, present, and future for the sacrifices they have made to protect the people and the principles of the United States of America. God Bless all that serve.

A Walking Farmer Part II…Good Things

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:3 (NIV)

Last week I was trying to convey the message that we Christians are walking farmers. Where ever we go whatever we do we plant seeds and we water those seeds. It is God that helps those seeds grow. It is God that helps those people become stronger in faith with all the love and compassion and wisdom from the Father God Almighty.

I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. 1 Corinthians 3:6-7 (NLT)

Are you ready? There is a lot of bad in the world but there is even more good then there is bad but because of our technology we see more bad then good and because of that we see more bad people and the bad things in this world which is not good. So we should speak of good people and good things as often as possible.

11 So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 1Thessalonians 5:11 (NLT)

But really there is a good thing in this world just not everyone knows about it or gets it yet.

Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples! 1 Chronicles 16:8 (NKJV)

A good thing…and

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NIV)

A very good thing.

So in short Christians should reach out to people so some of them won’t be bad anymore which is easier said than done. Just for your information there are a lot of neutral people that are not bad but are not of the Christian faith either so we need to address them as well. As Christians we can hope and pray that the seeds we plant will grow into what God wants them to be so they will not be bad which is good. So then there will be more good than bad which is good. So speak good things and speak of Christ Jesus and plant seeds so we can see more good things and hear more good things which is not a bad thing. I am done now…good.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you. 24 My love to all of you in Christ Jesus. 1 Corinthians 16: 23-24 (NLT)

The Hotel is Full

A Jewish lady named Mrs. Rosenberg many years ago was stranded late one night at a fashionable resort – one that did not admit Jews. The desk clerk looked down at his book and said, “Sorry, no room. The hotel is full.”

The Jewish lady said, “But your sign says that you have vacancies.”

The desk clerk stammered and then said curtly, “You know that we do not admit Jews. Now if you will try the other side of town…”

Mrs. Rosenberg stiffened noticeable and said, “I’ll have you know I converted to your religion.”

The desk clerk said, “Oh, yeah, let me give you a little test. How was Jesus born?”

Mrs. Rosenberg replied, “He was born to a virgin named Mary in a little town called Bethlehem.”

“Very good,” replied the hotel clerk. “Tell me more.”

Mrs. Rosenberg replied, “He was born in a manger.”

“That’s right,” said the hotel clerk. “And why was he born in a manger?”

Mrs. Rosenberg said loudly, “Because a jerk like you in the hotel wouldn’t give a Jewish lady a room for the night!”
