Another definition of abide is to live up to. Do you live up to what the Bible tells you to do? Do you live up to the standard it requires? e final definition of abide is to carry out.

Are you carrying out or distributing the Word of God?

The Word of God is more than a Book to put into us; it is the words God wants to hear out of us.

Why does the Word of God have bearing upon my prayer life? This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but though shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Joshua 1:8

Do you ever think what God thinks about His words? God loves those words.

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Matthew 24:35

All that will remain are the words of God. God loves His words. He loves them so much He calls His Son, "The Word." those words are so important to God that He says, "If you want your prayers to be answered, then I would like to hear my words. God says, If they are wonderful to Me, then I want to hear you using them.

God doesn't like Idol words. God doesn't like critical words. god doesn't like tail bearing. God says, I like my words, and I want to hear them out of your moth. In fact, they should never, ever cease to be coming out of your mouth.

Supplication is convincing God that you want to go where He is going and that wherever He goes is a delightful place to go.

When was the last time you used God's words in normal conversation You say, "well, I used them when I win a soul to Christ." Do you ever use them in a normal conversation, like at the supper table? I am working on that in my life. Talking about prayer is a rare commodity nowadays. What words of God do you use? With whom you ever talk about the Bible? Do you and your spouse ever talk about the Bible? God wants us to hear you use his Words. God wants to hear your opinion, your thoughts, your love, and your affection for His words.

The Word of God provides stability of thought during unstable times.

When you have unstable times like hearing about the unrest in the Middle East, and about war, bombs, rockets, and bloodshed or if your marriage is disintegrating and your spouse is absolute out of control, you feel like your world is falling apart within you. What do you do? You go to God. God says, "Read my words because the Word of God gives stability in unstable times."
"My Daily Walk With God"


The purpose of this page is to awaken your desire to pray and to make prayer a very important part of your life. We have always taught that Bible reading and prayer go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. I know that I should read my Bible, and I know that I should pray, but the connection between the two becomes a little hazy. John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. This verse shows how the two of them fit together and accomplish a great work as a team together.

In John 15:7, we have a great statement about prayer that somehow has been ignored because we have not used the right wording. We've been taught to read our Bibles and pray. So, generations of Christians have read the Bible, and they have gone to a prayer closet, never understanding that the two of them go together.

Abide means to remain in you. A man who read the Bible without much focus quickly forgets what he read. How do you read your Bible? Do you quickly forget what you have read? What remains in you is what abides in you. Only those Christians who have the word of God abiding in them have the right to say, "God, this is what I will," and God says, "if that is what your will, it shall be done."

It is not just how many words your eyeball saw; it is not how many verses you checked off in a course of reading. It is how many of those words do you submit? This is what God looks for when He wants to figure out if your prayers are worth answering.

JOHN 15:1-7

1. I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

2. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

3. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

4. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

5. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

6. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

7. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Partnering with God begins with obedience to God in the matters of prayer, consistent Bible reading, soul winning, and regular church attendance.

God is always good...

We had a wonderful Christmas and now we are blessed with the beautiful snow God spoke in existence.
We have finally cleaned up alot of water from our furnace leaking water everywhere we had a plumber come out its going to be about $400.00 to repair.
I still don`t have another car after the accident but my son is letting us have his truck its about 16 years old and a loud muffler but it works.
when things fall apart I know who to put my trust in and go on to another day.

God gives us our children

God "has not given you your children and the means to support them simply so that you may do with them as you please, or train them just to get ahead in the world. You have been earnestly commanded to raise them for God's service."

Martin Luther

Gym class tomorrow!


I`m excited about going to school tomorrow,but I don`t think I Will play too much I bruised up my elbow playing too hard last week.

Who has their eyes on us?


Ch 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of [them] whose heart [is] perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

Job 1:7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

Lets be the light in this dark world

Lets make a difference in someones life.


If we won`t go who will?


I Love going to church with my family


I Missed doing nursery at church last night but it was great sitting next to my sweet heart in church.

Patriots are winning!

Patriots are winning! This is a wonderful thing for new england but it wont make a difference on the world we live in. we need to get excited about things that will matter when we leave this world that one day we all will have an appointment with death which is not a termination but a separation.Act 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and [so is] also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him. We need to witness before we loose the hedge of protection God put around us.

This weeks lesson Psalm 126

Dr. Jack Schaap, Pastor
First Baptist Church
Hammond, Indiana
Elementary Sunday School Lesson


Psalm 126

Objects to have:

A happy face, stuck to the back of a sad face—both mounted on the end of a stick, so that by simply turning the stick, one face or the other is turned toward the children

Your Bible.

Introducing the lesson:

(While saying the following, turn the appropriate face toward the children.) The people in our Bible story today are first happy, then sad; then they are happy, then sad again, and then they are happy. (Put down the stick with the faces on it. Pick up your Bible.)

(Hold up your Bible, which is open to Psalm 126.) This is the book of Psalms. Our pastor has chosen a few Psalms from this book for us to study in our Sunday school lessons. There is a reason why each Psalm was written—there is a story behind each Psalm. Psalm 126 is a very short Psalm. Listen to it. (Read the Psalm to the children, having rehearsed well the reading of the Psalm so that you can read it with meaning to the children.)

(Put down your Bible and pick up the stick so that the happy face is turned toward the children.) How happy they were! God’s people, that is. They were living in the land that God had given them. There was plenty of food for everyone to eat—there were lots of fruit trees and grain growing in many fields. The daddies would harvest the grain and the mothers would make cakes and breads and cereals from them. There were lots of fields where big flocks of sheep could eat. There were many other kinds of animals, too. There were also rivers and streams from which the people could get water for drinking and cooking and washing. The people had homes in which to live, and they had nice clothes to wear.

They also had a large building in one part of their country; they called this big, beautiful building the temple. Some of the people lived close enough to the temple so that they could walk there any day they wanted to. Many people in the country had to travel a long ways to go to the temple. However far they had to go, they all liked to go there. They loved to meet their friends there. They loved to sing songs about God. They loved to hear a teacher teach the Word of God. They loved to pray, and they loved to tell each other about the answers to prayer that they had. How happy they were!

But, Psalm 126 has the word "captivity" in it. (Turn the stick so that the sad face is toward the children.) Captivity! Why were the people captive?

God’s people had forgotten to be grateful to Him! God’s people had stopped praying! God’s people stopped learning about God!

Telling the story:

God said to His people who were called the Israelites, "There are people all around you—people who are not My people. They will not trust Me; they will not obey Me. Do not make friends of these people. Do not go places with them. Do not go to their homes. Do not allow your children to play with their children. Keep yourselves separated from these people."

God’s people obeyed Him for awhile. The children of God’s people played only with each other. The young men dated only the young ladies who were God’s people. On the days when they were supposed to go to the temple, they were happy and delighted to do so. On other days, the families of God’s people gathered around in their homes at the close of each day and they prayed and they talked about God, and they talked about how they should not sin.

After awhile the men of God’s people started to talk to the men who were not God’s people. They thought, "Those are nice men. Why do we have to be separated from them? We’ll work with them; we’ll have long talks with them." Some of the men who were not God’s people began to say to the men who were God’s people, "How can you talk to a God whom you cannot see? You should think about our gods—we can see them. When we pray, we keep our eyes open, and we look at the statues that are our gods. Come see our gods."

God’s people should not have done it, but they went to look at those false gods. The Israelites wanted gods they could see, so they made some statues out of stone, and they made some statues out of wood—some to look like men and some to look like women. They called these things gods, and they bowed down and prayed to them. They even put some of them in the temple where they were supposed to pray to only the true, living God. In the yard in front of the temple—called the court—they prayed to the sun, the moon, the stars—calling them gods. Some men and some women became fortune tellers. God’s people were doing awful things. And God saw it all.

There were some people who still loved God and who still obeyed Him. They were God’s preachers. God said to His preachers, "Tell My people to turn from their wicked ways." The preachers preached to the people, but most of the people would not listen. Most of the people would not stop their sinning. God said to His preachers, "All right, now I have to punish My people."

And so it was that God let enemy kings and enemy armies come to the country where God’s people lived. The enemy armies killed many of God’s people. Many of God’s people were taken captive by the enemy armies. They were taken away from their home and made to go to the country where the enemy lived. What a terribly sad time that was! God was allowing it all to happen because His people had disobeyed Him. They had stopped being grateful for what He had done for them. They had stopped studying His Word and praying to Him. They made false gods.

How sad the Israelites were in the country of the enemy! They were captives there. Then they remembered their sin. Then they asked God to forgive them.

(Turn the happy face toward the children.) Then one day their sadness was turned to joy. They were going to get to go home! A few of the men made the long journey back to God’s country. They went back to Jerusalem and to the land around that city. There they built up the walls again and built the temple again and built houses. The women and the children came back, too. It was all like a wonderful dream. They were no longer captives. Then were their mouths filled with laughter and their tongues with singing. The people who lived around them—people who had never trusted God—said, "The Lord hath done great things for them." And God’s people said, "The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad."

And then God’s people were sad again. (Turn the sad face toward the children.) They thought about all the people around them. They thought about how they did not know God as their God, and they began to cry about this. They said, "The true, living God is the only God. We have remembered that. We want other people to know it, too."

Many people will die and not go to Heaven because they have not trusted Jesus as their Saviour. That’s a very sad thought. Because of that sad thought, God’s people want other people to know how to be saved. And so they go to the people who need to know Jesus as their Saviour. God’s people say, "Please listen to me. I am here to tell you how you may know how to go to Heaven. Please understand that everybody is a sinner. You are a sinner, too. Sin has to be punished. Jesus paid that punishment for everybody. If you believe that, and trust Jesus as your Saviour, you can go to Heaven when you die, too."

(Turn the stick so that the smiling face is toward the children.) Some people listen, and some people ask Jesus to be their Saviour. God’s people who were crying because of those who were going to Hell, were then rejoicing because the people who got saved will go to Heaven when they die. They are happily bringing to church those who have asked Jesus to be their Saviour. They are happily bringing them down the aisles. They are happily saying, "These people have asked Jesus to be their Saviour. Isn’t that wonderful!"

There are only six verses in this chapter in the book of Psalms. The chapter has a number. It is called Psalm 126. Let’s remember it. First, God’s people were happy and grateful to God for all His blessings. Then they decided to go their own way in sin and not obey God. How sad they were to be taken captives! Anyone who follows the Devil is a captive of the Devil and of sin. Then God’s people turned back to Him, and they were free. Then they were sad to think of the people who did not know God, and they wanted them to know Him. Just as we tell others about Jesus so that they can be saved, so did God’s people want those who lived around them to know Him, too. As they saw others trust Him as their Saviour, then they were happy, and that is the story behind Psalm 126.

As I Was reading this lesson this morning I need to take the time to pray for soulwinning tonight I will see lots of drunkards homeless and other people in need tonight when I go into others homes I cant tell them how to talk or take down certain pictures or dress a certain way but I can be filled with the Spirit that when I am around they will know Gods presence is there,
16And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

A merry heart doeth good like medicine...

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

14The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

15All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.

I Don`t know why anyone would not want to be happy David encouraged himself in the Lord.I Want to stay joyful to help others so to search the scriptures for the recipe of joy always works.if Im not happy I can ruin someones day.
I Love working here at school when I am helping children to love God and have the right attitude.
