Message in the picture:

“Joy – Get excited about the guaranteed hope of living forever with God. – Make heaven your dream and what you hope for; not a home or things on earth!”

Scripture for the day:

1 Thessalonians 1:5-6 For our gospel came to you not in word only but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit, and with full conviction. You know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. 6 And you became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word despite much affliction, with joy from the Holy Spirit: (RKJNT)

Thought for the day

 Joy from the Spirit; Now Make Heaven Your Hope

Quit thinking like people who do not know the Lord. They desire and pursue things that do not last and for most are hard to get. Things like the ‘ideal’ person, a home, the latest technology or a new car. It is time for the children of God to change their way of thinking and what they desire.

Get excited about the guaranteed hope of living forever with God. Make heaven the focus of your dreams. It should be what you hope for. Live like a child of promise and look forward to what God has for us in heaven, not a home or things on earth. No one can steal this joy!

Maintain your joy in the Lord my friends, until next time—be blessed— Tim.

Question for the day: Do you have joy in the Lord and understand that no one can take it?


About Bishop Tim

Born in 1952, I consider myself to be very blessed in that I have lived a very full life, with many experiences in what I consider to be the three most significant areas of life, Personal, Professional, and Spiritual. I am a fully recovered drug addict/dealer who did many things in the past that I now use to minister to others since 1977. A Vietnam era veteran, retired computer engineering executive/computer geek (web and graphics design, programmer, consultant and analyst), husband, father and grandfather, minister, amateur photographer, artist, musician, vocalist, instructor/teacher and chef... I strive to fulfill my purpose in life “liberating God’s people” with sound truth. Sound Truth Ministry has the freedom to provide the unadulterated Word of God. We have no overhead, physical building or congregation to try to please and we are not asking for money. All that we do is provided "free of charge".
