1 Corinthians 3:1-9 (AMP) 
Foundations for Living
3 However, brothers and sisters, I could not talk to you as to spiritual people, but [only] as to [a]worldly people [dominated by human nature], mere infants [in the new life] in Christ! 2 I fed you with milk, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Even now you are still not ready. 3 You are still [b]worldly [controlled by ordinary impulses, the sinful capacity]. For as long as there is jealousy and strife and discord among you, are you not [c]unspiritual, and are you not walking like ordinary men [unchanged by faith]? 4 For when one of you says, "I am [a disciple] of Paul," and another, "I am [a disciple] of Apollos," are you not [proving yourselves unchanged, just] ordinary people?
5 What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? Just servants through whom you believed [in Christ], even as the Lord appointed to each his task. 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God [all the while] was causing the growth. 7 So neither is the one who plants nor the one who waters anything, but [only] God who causes the growth. 8 He who plants and he who waters are one [in importance and esteem, working toward the same purpose]; but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor. 9 For we are God's fellow workers [His servants working together]; you are God's cultivated field [His garden, His vineyard], God's building.











 















    

  



































  













































  


















 








2/19 WHO DO YOU BELONG TO?

Dear Erasto, 

Good Day! I apologize for going long on today's Scripture. God spends a lot of time to make the point in our thick heads. The point is simple, IF you promote division among God's people, you are working for the devil, NOT God. You are a baby in Christ.

So, how to grow up? 

1. Do and promote only things that encourage and bring God's people together. That is how God wants us to express our love for Him.
2. Be ware of the teachings of man, which can lead you astray. 
3. Be a Christian, Call yourself a Christian, not some other name first.

Let us pray.

Dear Father God,

May we promote ONLY unity among your people because of our love for you.  
 
  In Jesus Holy Name, 
     AMEN!

2/16 IF THIS, THEN THAT. IF NOT THEN THIS.

Dear Roland W., 

Good Day! While many believe the Old Testament can be boring, and certainly there are a lot of words here today. Kindly look at the context. God is really simple and black and white. The gray areas are always invented by man. 

It has been blessings or curses from the very beginning with God. AND look at this; Man is always given a choice. 

We follow God and we are blessed. We do not and we are fools, waiting to be cursed. 

THIS IS GOD'S PATTERN, and yes, even today! 

Let us pray.

Dear Father God,

May we not be tempted by complicated explanations of God. Instead may we seek His love and simplicity.

2/10 SILVER TONGUE DEVILS

Dear Alex, 

Good morning! Did you ever hear some preachers? They sound like they are talking in a booming voice and are the intellect of the room. God did not promote this, man did. 

Paul says here that he choose to speak plainly, humbly and Spiritually. It should remind us to ask 
* How do we sound to others? 
* Can we follow Paul's example? 
* Can we stick to Christ and Christ arisen?
* Can we "keep it simple, stupid?"
* And also can we give a few minute testimony when needed and appropriate ?

Maybe we need to bone up?
Let us pray.

Dear Father God,

Help us to keep our talk on you and simply and humbly on you. May we save a few souls this week because of it.

2/8 "THAT THEY ALL WOULD BE ONE"

Dear Erasto, 

Good morning! Some preachers treat this prayer from Jesus as if it just meant their Church. WRONG! It means His church and includes all who are Christians. We mess this up horribly. 
There are barely a handful of people trying to fulfill this prayer and get Christians together. 

One of those is Michael Grimm who sponsors a Christian Men's Retreat (<click here for info.) in the Spring and Fall of every year, at various Christian Camps in Pennsylvania. I help and support him. 

IF you believe in God's Word, particularly that His goal for us is to love each other like He and the Father do, you should encourage people to join in with this and things similar. IF YOU ARE A MAN, join in this one scheduled for May of this Spring. 

As a lesson today, I should not have to tell you how much the Father and Son loved each other. IF you have never reached out to cross the devils denomination abomination, call Michael today and get information and reserve a spot right now! (215 272-2470).

The Scripture above infers that you are NOT one with them, unless you are one with your brothers and sisters in Christ. 

Let us pray.

Dear Father God,

May we all take the high road and not be selfish in what affects us, BUT may we be so unselfish as to answer the King of Kings prayer for unity among His people.

 1 Corinthians 14:20
[ Instruction for the Church ] Brothers and sisters, do not be children [immature, childlike] in your thinking; be infants in [matters of] evil [completely innocent and inexperienced], but in your minds be mature [adults].

Galatians 4:3
So also we [whether Jews or Gentiles], when we were children (spiritually immature), were kept like slaves under the elementary [man-made religious or philosophical] teachings of the world.

So that we are no longer children [spiritually immature], tossed back and forth [like ships on a stormy sea] and carried about by every wind of [shifting] doctrine, by the cunning and trickery of [unscrupulous] men, by the deceitful scheming of people ready to do anything [for personal profit].




 















    

  



































  













































  


















 








2/6 DON'T BE AS IMMATURE AS NANCY PELOSI

Dear Jim, 

Good morning! I am glad that Nancy Pelosi had her tantrum in front of America. It brings up a great topic that Christians need to hear. 

God wants us to be "as innocent as doves" or children, on the outside, but inside "as wise as serpents". He calls Christians immature when they go by the teachings of man instead of Him. I say: "Tell this to the cults, to those who support abortion, to those who say the LGBTQ(&P) people are not sinning. And to those who change doctrine like the wind or depending on who they are with at the time. AND those who are denominational or preacher followers who may even be followers of money and riches.  

Now, how do each of us rate on the maturity scale? And would you warn a brother or sister of the darkness they are in? 

Let us pray.

Dear Father God,

May we be ware of the signs of Christian immaturity and our responsibility NOT to act immature in front of this world. May we also be willing to go the extra mile to warn our brothers and sisters about this. 
 
  In Jesus Holy Name,

1/17 WIN BACK YOUR BROTHER

Dear Michael, 

Good morning! You're saying he or she is wrong, he or she is saying they are right. Ever get in a situation like that. When someone sins against God or against you this is the way to solve the problem. The purpose? To win back the person who you claim to be sinning, BUT watch out it could be you!

One of you or both say "I'm sorry", "please forgive me" or something to that affect. And you may even pray together to that same effect from God. What happens if you don't? God says if you do not forgive men on earth, neither will He forgive you. 

Let me expand on that. It means you are a hypocrite and you do not go to heaven. Why? Because you want heaven for yourself, but not for others. That selfish attitude is NOT welcome in heaven for a short explanation. It also means, be careful. Anger may be involved and your prayers will be interfered with by this anger. 

Do you really want to risk prayers NOT being answered? Do you really want to risk blowing your chance to love God through obedience? YET, this is the most violated rule among Christians! Yikes!

So who would make you not solve problems like this? Is it God or the devil?

Pray strong on this with me, please.

Dear Father God,

We repent for all those people who, due to ego, selfishness, intimidation etc. will not act like mature Christians by resolving problems your way. And if we were one of them, may we repent and stop acting like this.

1/13 RAMP IT UP

Dear Michael, 

Good evening for those still up! Today's Scriptures are critical to know in the coming times and for the coming times we all need to ramp it up!

What do I mean? I mean we are closing in on the ending times. The left leaning hearts are acting more like left leaning hearts. We are in "Generation Z' with our young folks. Sociologists named it that, BUT could it not be the last generation before Christ returns. We need to be able to discern more so than ever what is from God and what is NOT from God. Yes, we need to get tighter to God.

Have you stepped forward to do more for God this next year? Have you taken on more ministry? How about a leadership position? WE NEED TO RAMP IT UP. It is getting late in the game. 

Pray with me, please, please, please.

Dear Father God,

May we fully realize the times that we are living in. May we know that we need to fellowship with you and our brothers and sisters more so, not less so that we can 'ramp it up' and get closer to you.

1/5 SALVATION AND ITS AFFECTS

Dear Erasto, 

Good, good morning! This one Scripture says a lot in a nutshell. Gods grace leads to salvation and salvation leads to those saved acting differently. It really is a simple formula. 

The simple thing is, your heart MUST change toward God, and when it does, when it really does, so do your actions. 

Now notice the word "maturity". It does not happen immediately. At least all of it does not. For all it is a growth process. 

What we must do is analyze constantly where we are in that growth process.  

Pray with me on this please.

Dear Father God,

It is you that we want to honor when our hearts are converted. May you and the Holy Spirit help us to grow and mature in you. Part of that growth will always come by constantly examining ourselves for the better.

1/4 HOW DOES BOB CUTTING THINK?

Dear Don, 

Good morning! A friend of mine, who reads these newsletters said that he was trying to figure out how I think in these newsletters. 

To tell you the truth, I really don't know. First I try to go to a Scripture that touches my heart through God and I pray on it. Secondly I try to go with the litergy as a help to liturgical preachers. Same thing. I ask God and pray on it. Then, I also go to conditions of life. People who I observe may be having trouble. I realize that if I see one person, there may be others having the same problems. If I can apply Scripture to it and help those people, then again, I ask God and pray on it.

So for my friends statement, in today's message, I thought there may be more with the same question.

If I do not have a message on any day, it is time to pray for me as I probably am not in good Spiritual shape for inspiration. 

That is the best that I can explain how I think on these newsletters. 

Pray with me on this please.

Dear Father God,

We are thankful for people that can give us messages from your Word to help us. Keep bringing forth people who will and have taken up this task.

1/3 HOPE COMPLETED IS DELIVERED

Dear Michael, 

Good, good morning! Reading a good book recently, I learned that hope is not entirely understood by Christians at large. You see it also involves and is interconnected with your faith. 

So, here we see that hope is an expression of your faith. It is for things not yet seen. But it is for us to wait patiently and even expectantly for. Yes, as the saying goes with hope, and faith "We can expect a miracle". 

I say let's put some more hope in our lives! 

Pray with me on this please.

Dear Father God,

It is you that gives us hope in this world. Help us to take full advantage of it by your intent for it. May our hope being in expecting something from you. Yes, even a miracle.

1/1 SO YOU WANT TO BE A CHRISTIAN LEADER?

Dear Michael, 

Happy New Year and God's best for you in it.
Many people want to be Christian leaders and they may see it only from the prominence that it may bring. IF your attitude is not from God's calling, from the willingness to serve, from your deep faith, it will not be a good trip.  

You will be tested and shaken out. You become a big target for the devil. If you are not well fortified, it will hurt. You will be exposed to all sorts of people who have flirted with the devil in many ways. They open the doors of temptation and entry by the evil one into those around them. Some even pick you out as an ego target to enrich themselves. 

Not that I have a bad opinion of Ministry. In fact, I love it. But do not enter it unaware. You step out, you will be a bigger target. I know of no one genuinely called by God who has not felt the experience of the cross upon them. They at times, are hanging there with Jesus.

Kindly pray with me.

Dear Father God,

May ministry not be a way of ego, but of humble service for those interested and may we always keep our leaders in the protection of prayer.

12/24 THE ORIGINS OF CHRISTMAS

Dear Elaine, 

Good Morning! While we all know that Christmas is to celebrate Jesus, how did man set the date and how did some of it's traditions start?

You see, we really do not know the date of Jesus' Birth or the other traditions of the time. In fact our holiday for Jesus is really a victory for Jesus as His holiday replaced a more demon like holiday. Maybe this is the reason God hid His actual birth date from us?

 He gave us this joy filled holiday at a time of the year, in the northern hemisphere at least, when trees get bare, temperatures get cold and things can look dreary. We can think of it as a gift from a loving God.
I pray that you will look at it that way.

Now, Let us pray together:

Dear Father God,

In this season of giving, may we focus on your awesomeness, even to the point of hiding Jesus' real birth date, so that a demon like holiday could be superseded by a joyous one for Christians. And for them to tell your story at an otherwise bleak time of year.
 
  In Jesus Holy Name, 
     AMEN!
