As you may know today is Presidents’ Day.
How Presidents’ Day came about:
Nowadays, though, many of us — whether we be employees or students — don’t get any weekdays off at all in February, or we’re offered a single holiday that falls on the third Monday in February and is neither Lincoln’s nor Washington’s Birthday but some hybrid known as “Presidents’ Day.”
To his other virtues he added the virtue of his respect for the Sabbath. He would give the day to the Lord. It was for him the Lord’s day. Even while President of the United States he not only attended church on Sunday, but refrained from all official business on that day. He would not even allow visitors into the Presidential mansion on the Lord’s day. The only exception was a Mr. Trumbull, who was one of the most pious and godly men in America at that time, with whom he was wont to have discussions in the evening before retiring.
He retired every night at the same time in his fantastically disciplined life. He would take his candle and, promptly at nine o’clock, retire to his study. Many did not know what he did, but a nephew who lived with him for twenty years followed him one day and shortly after his uncle had entered the study, he quietly opened the door and found Washington kneeling before a chair with the candle, and there in the chair the open Bible. From nine until ten o’clock every night, with perfect punctuality, he would spend that time in prayer and the reading of the Word, even as he did every morning and night when he was fighting the Revolutionary War. And he called all of his soldiers together each morning for prayer. He would arise at four o’clock in the morning and return to the same study, the same candle, to the same Bible and to the same prayer. Thus he began each day.

So if you did/are going to read more about these guys to see if they were really saved. Let me ask you, are you perfect? Have you ever not messed up? Yes, when the world views you and sees you mess up, they will probably say: “and I thought you were suppose to be a “Christian”?”
“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” – Matthew 6:6
In Honor of my mother: Christine Beck – Today was her birthday 2/16. She was born-again and now is face to face with Jesus.

Today is a big day for football fans and players. Today is Super Bowl 49. Your team may be playing in the Super Bowl. Congratulations! But let’s dig into this a little bit. Let’s look at this 12 number. Tom Brady’s football # is 12, Seattle Seahawks claimed last year to have a 12th man (fans) But when thinking of the number 12, first comes to mind… the 12 disciples. So it’s 12 vs. 12th man.
Does God care who wins the Super Bowl? Probably not. But He care, if you win or lose to praise and worship no matter what. We know, the media doesn’t interview the losers, but the winners instead. Personally, my football team did not make it. But who am I cheering for? Since I have seen both team win the Super Bowl before. I would have to choose the Seattle Seahawks. Why? Because they are unashamed of Jesus! I have seen the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl before and no one mentioned Jesus or anything and the Seattle Seahawks did mention Jesus last year. It’s all about Jesus.
You could say, “so & so is a Christian” example “Drew Brees” I have heard he is a Christian but when he won a Super Bowl he didn’t mention anything, not even, “I thank God.” But you say, you have to mention Jesus to be a Christian, true. But God blessed you with the stage your on, use it for His glory. I have to relate to Matthew 10:33 “But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven.”
And looking at time wise, we don’t have much time left on this earth, one day the Holy Spirit will be removed from the earth. So after that, who cares who wins the Super Bowl. But right now, we have the Holy Spirit and we need to cheer Jesus to be heard around the world. Yes there are Christians on the Patriots but their voices may not be heard. Super Bowl is almost a holiday. More people watch the Super Bowl then any other thing. So pray for souls to be saved. If your not cheering for Jesus’ name to be heard, your cheering for your selfish reasons. I admit, being a Cowboy fan I would and have cheered for the opposing team, because I know they would give Jesus all the glory.
Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People?
Number One: Are these ‘good’ people from your standards or God’s standards? Take the test if you think your a good person? Click on pictures below to take the test in English or Spanish.
Jesus is the only man who didn’t sin and Jesus is good. We sin for we are bad people. All people but Jesus are bad because we are sinners and Jesus was not a sinner, for He is good. We do deserve to burn in Hell, but God sent His Son to die for our sins, so if we give our life to Him, we don’t have to burn in Hell.
Number Two: Depends if people know Jesus. Sometimes if we play around with sin, God will discipline us. Or He will test our faith in Him, like Job in the Bible.
So you ask yourself, “why did “John” have to die? He was on fire for Jesus, he was only 30 years old and he had a wife and 2 kids.” Well, God uses deaths to reach the lost. We personally get selfish and think of ourselves. We get “mad” at God when it was never about us in the first place.
God has a plan and His plan is good. He tries to find the lost in mist of their sins.
