Talon’s Point – March 21st, 2015 Should The Political Winds….

To paraphrase someone who claimed to be a follower of Christ but wars against him with every breath,

Should the political winds shift in an ugly direction against God, His precepts, and His word made flesh in Christ Jesus I will stand with Christ, and the tempest is building.

What winds are you prepared to face?

Talon’s Point of the Day – March 18th, 2015 Christ Didn’t Die Just For…

It’s sad that in 2015 it still needs to be clarified but here goes;

Christ didn’t die just for white Christians. He died for everyone regardless of their color, race, religion or other ideology, sexual preference, political view, and ice cream preference.

After that it’s up to each to decide to lay aside their own will, grant Him lordship, and follow the Savior. If they do, then they will shed the things that He disapproves of and become part of one singular body.

It’s not for you, or me, to determine who should be touched with the gospel. If He died for everyone, and He did, then He wants EVERYONE to hear His message of love.

Talon’s Point of the Day – March 10th, 2015 Be A Hero

Early this morning I was pondering with some melancholy how my children have grown to the age where they don’t view me as the hero they once did. If you’re a parent of older children or now adults you know what I mean. Not that they don’t still appreciate, or even admire us, but we simply aren’t seen with the eyes that prompt them to say “my dad this!”, or “my mom that!” with glee. Then it was time to head out for work and I put the thought aside and hit the road, my mind focused on the duties of the day.

When I arrived at work a person I occasionally work with mentioned her daughter, who was also working with us this day was outside with vehicle trouble. As I’m oft to do I offered to take a look and determined her problem was simply some loose and corroded battery connections. Breaking out some tools I made quick work of the problem and with an appreciative ‘thank you’ we all headed in to get to our tasks. Later that day this young lady and her mom mentioned that I was a hero for my help.

Now normally I would just thank someone for their kind words and not give it much thought, but I sensed God reminding me of my early morning private lamentation and how if we are willing to be a blessing to someone else in need that we can be a hero each and every day.

Despite me sharing this story with the young lady and her mother I’m pretty sure she has no idea just how much I appreciated her letting me be someone’s hero today, let alone that her words were God inspired.

May I be more like Christ each and every day, for He is my Hero.

Talon’s Point of the Day – March 1st, 2015 Hollywood Fecal Matter

Ok, now that I gained your attention with that provocative title let me just say that consuming most of what Hollywood, or for that matter pretty much any source of modern entertainment, offer is like eating someone elses feces and agreeing to pay them to let you. My apologies for the bluntness and imagery but most of what is now produced for our consumption is just someone elses depravity being marketed to fools willing and eager to swallow it like pigs squealing for more slop.

Would you like a 5 gallon bucket of popcorn to go with that?

Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 24th, 2015 Find Out What It’s Like To Be Rich

Today I was “followed” on Twitter by someone who’s profile reads “Find out what its like to be rich!” I don’t need to follow this person back. My Father owns ALL the silver and gold, period!

      ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts.” – Haggai 2:8

So if you want to find out whats its like to be rich, may I suggest the following verses to begin true understanding: John 3:16-18, Mark 16:16, Romans 10:9, Ephesians 2:8-9

Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 18th, 2015 Let God Be Magnified!

While I would prefer to comment on this particular verse, this day will not allow it. However, perhaps it’s best I do not and just let this verse speak for itself since it certainly doesn’t need my help.

“Let all those that seek You rejoice and be glad in You: and let those who love Your salvation say continually, Let God be magnified!” – Psalm 70:4 NKJV

Being humiliated is awful….Being humiliated for Christ is glorious.
