 “I thoroughly enjoyed reading Renée Debrowski’s Christian children’s fiction book, The Little Star That Couldn’t Shine.  What a wonderful children’s book!!! I could see myself reading this to my children when they were young and to my grandchildren today.

God has certainly gifted Pastor Renée, and I know that what she has produced is just the tip of the iceberg! I believe God has many more books to come. Get ready!

The Ten Commandments
Exodus 20
Given directly by God
to the people of Israel
at Mount Sinai
after He had delivered them
from slavery in Egypt…
“And God spoke all these words, saying:
‘I am the LORD your God…'”

I am the LORD thy God
Thou shalt have no other gods
No graven images or likenesses
Not take the LORD’s name in vain
Remember the sabbath day
Honour thy father and thy mother
Thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not commit adultery
Thou shalt not steal
Thou shalt not bear false witness
Thou shalt not covet

 “And, behold, one came

and said unto Him,

Good Master,

what good thing shall I do,

that I may have eternal life?

And He said unto him,

‘Why callest thou Me good?

There is none good but one,

that is, God:

but if thou wilt enter into life,

keep the commandments.’

He saith unto Him,

‘Which?’

Jesus said,

‘Thou shalt do no murder,

Thou shalt not commit adultery,

Thou shalt not steal,

Thou shalt not bear false witness,

Honour thy father and thy mother:

and,

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.'”

Matthew 19:16-19

 “Owe no man any thing,

but to love one another:

for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

For this,

Thou shalt not commit adultery,

Thou shalt not kill,

Thou shalt not steal,

Thou shalt not bear false witness,

Thou shalt not covet;

and if there be any other commandment,

it is briefly comprehended in this saying,

namely,

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Love worketh no ill to his neighbour:

therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.”

Romans 13:8-10

“If ye love Me, keep My commandments.”

John 14:15

“Blessed are they that do His commandments,

that they may have right to the tree of life,

and may enter in through the gates into the city.”

Revelation 22:14

Jesus, You’re My Superhero!! I’ll Tell The World!

Hey, Kids!!

Any other superhero is made up…

Jesus is real!

Jesus, You’re my superhero…

You’re my star, my best friend…

You’re better than anyone!!

Job 9:4

“He is wise in heart and mighty in strength…”

Matthew 19:26

“But Jesus looked at them and said, 

‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’”

Jeremiah 10:12

“It is He who made the earth by His power,

who established the world by His wisdom,

and by His understanding stretched out the heavens.”

So…Tell the World!!

Shout His praise!

No one compares to Him!

Jesus, all I want in this whole world is You, You, You!

So, tell the world that Jesus lives…

Tell the world that He died for them…

Tell the world that He lives again

No longer I, but Christ in me …

Cause it’s the truth that set me free…

How could this world be a better place?

But by His mercy, and by His grace!

C’mon, c’mon go tell the world about Him!

Romans 10:14-15

“But how can they call on him to save them

unless they believe in him?

And how can they believe in him

if they have never heard about him?

And how can they hear about him

unless someone tells them?

And how will anyone go tell them

without being sent?

That is what the Scriptures mean

when they say,

‘How beautiful are the feet of those who

bring good news!’”

Go! 

Tell the Good News!!

Listen to:

“Happy Birthday Jesus”

Performed by- The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir

It’s a favorite of mine…

Because it’s sung by little children!

Here are some of the lyrics…

“Happy Birthday Jesus…

I’m so glad it’s Christmas!

All the tinsel and lights…

And the presents are nice…

But the real gift is You…

Happy Birthday Jesus…

I’m so glad it’s Christmas!

All the carols and bells…

Make the holiday swell…

And it’s all about You!

Happy Birthday Jesus…

Jesus, I love You!”

I love this song’s child-like innocence…

  Matthew 18:3 NIV says…

“…I tell you the truth, unless you change…

And become like little children…

You will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”

Do you need the gift of a Silent Night?

Give yourself a gift this Christmas…

Jesus is your gift!

Celebrate His Birthday!

Come to His Birthday Party!

And sing…

Happy Birthday, Jesus!

Jesus, I love You!

Make The Effort!

I’m highly recommending this Christian daily e-mail you can subscribe to…
Called “The Daily Verse” by Kat Davis…
Or you can purchase her book by the same name…
Web-site:  TheDailyVerse.com
Today’s Bible verse for November 20, 2012:
“And there was a man named Zacchaeus.  He was a chief tax collector and was rich.  And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small of stature.  So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way.”
Luke 19:2-4

After each verse, Kat explains her thoughts from God on that verse: 

For this verse, Kat  writes:  “Let us consider how much of an effort will we make to overcome our limitations, so that we can clearly see Jesus, and figuratively climb the tree, just as Zacchaeus did.”

Always short, sweet, and to the point!!!!

Do we get it???

Don’t be lazy!

Make the effort it takes to see Jesus…

To walk with Him…

To have Him come to our house…

And into our hearts!

Then when He says, “I’m coming in!”

Let Him!!

Amen!

If you were raised in Sunday school, you know the song about Zacchaeus!!!

The song tells of Zacchaeus’s attempts to see Jesus by climbing a sycamore tree, there are a series of hand motions that accompany the song.  The song is one of the more popular children’s Bible songs, and has been featured on numerous Christian children’s music collections.

It was my favorite!!

  I can still see and hear my Uncle Angelo (my pastor!) singing it to us and teaching us the hand motions…

It’s one of those songs you teach to your children…

I taught my son!!

Here are the lyrics:

 “Zacchaeus was a wee little man,

And a wee little man was he.

He climbed up in a sycamore tree

For the Lord he wanted to see.

And when the Savior passed that way

He looked up in the tree.

And said, ‘Zaccheus, you come down!

For I’m going to your house today!

For I’m going to your house today!’

Zacchaeus was a wee little man,

But a happy man was he,

For he had seen the Lord that day

And a happy man was he;

And a very happy man was he.”

Each day, “The Daily Verse” pops into my email…

I can’t tell you how much it has helped set the tone for my day…

For my walk with the Lord…

And how many, many times I’ve felt compelled to forward it to others!

  Miraculously, when I have a need, or a family member or friend is going through something…

“The Daily Verse” seems to be just what I need…

What I want to pray for…

And what I want to convey to others!

  Thank you, Lord…

For giving Kat the gift of Your insight!!

Make the effort…Jesus is worth it!!
