A NEW SONG - Monthly Devotion

Dear fellow worker of the Christian Worship Hour:

In Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, the greatest sermon ever preached, He told His followers what He expected of them.  One thing He wanted us to do is to stop being a sour-puss, a wet blanket, a kill-joy, and to shine for Him in a dark, lost world.  Jesus commanded:

Let your light so shine among men, that they may see your good works, and glorify

your Father, which is in heaven” Matthew 5:16

Have you seen some of these so-called “good” Christians running around the countryside with a face a foot long, doleful, sorrowful, like as if they had been baptized in dill pickle juice?  Jesus is telling us shine as a light in a pitch dark world.  What kind of a light does God want?

 

  • IT MUST BE A PURE LIGHT. In the good old days, we had lamps with wicks.  If the wicks weren’t trimmed right the flame would smoke up the lamp chimney and blur the light.  The same goes for God’s people, if we are going to have a light really shining for Jesus, we are going to have to clean up our act and live a separated life for God.  We are commanded to “come out from among them and be ye separate and touch not the unclean thing”.  (II Corinthians 6:17; Romans 12:1).
  • IT MUST BE A STRONG LIGHT. Why?  Because the Devil will try to blow it out—he’s in the blowing business, you know.  If he can get a saint of God discouraged, the light won’t shine very strong or far.  If he can get God’s child all mixed up in the things of the world, there won’t be much light.  (II Corinthians 7:1).  Sometimes the Devil holds up a little piece of gold, and the weak Christian falls in love with it, and the light flickers and fails.  (Proverbs 16:25).
  • IT MUST BE A STEADY LIGHT.  We’ve got a bunch of Christians that are like fireflies, now you see them, now you don’t.  When the skies are grey and the strong wind blows—-then, like a lighthouse on a cliff, the Christian needs to shine forth because when they see the light of our life and testimony, they are drawn to Jesus!  (Daniel 12:3; Galatians 6:9).
  • IT NEEDS TO BE A CHEERFUL LIGHT. When I run into some of these gloomy Gus’s who claim to be Christians it makes me want to stay out in the dark.  Nehemiah said that “the joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10).  When we are happy and joyous, it attracts people, that’s what they want.  Get a smile on your face and a spring in your step and the light will shine.  (Proverbs 16:13; II Corinthians 9:7).
  • IT MUST BE EVER INCREASING. God tells us that “the path of the just is like the shining light” (Proverbs 4:16).  The longer we walk with Jesus the closer we get to Him, and being close to Him lights up our life and the love of Jesus shines forth and brightens all about us and shows them the way home to heaven.  The Bible tells us, “The path of the just is like the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.”  (Proverbs 4:18).  Our light can help some poor, lost soul find his or her way to heaven.  (John 14:1-6).

So, we shine for Jesus!  We do it individually, and we do it as a body of Believers through the Christian Worship Hour.  Alone, we cannot reach all of the world, but as a body we are doing it through our ministry.  We can only shine as far as you all make it possible with your PRAYERS & GIFTS.  So, in Jesus’ Name we thank you.  Love you, bless you.   

In Our Savior’s Love,

Pastor Salem

LETTERS FROM OUR VIEWERS

THANK YOU FOR WRITING…

Thanks for sharing God’s Word with the world and helping those to come to Christ to be saved.  God bless and have a good day.

WISCONSIN

Tithe to help save lost souls.  Thank you for working on GOD’s behalf, also mine.  Not my money anyway.

MISSOURI

I’m 88 yrs. old and have been a Christian since the age of 17.  I was raised in a home without Christ.  Our church preached about God and Jesus but until moving to another town and attending a new church, we didn’t know we had to personally accept Jesus.

COLORADO

Thank you for your message a few Sunday’s ago.  It was just the words of the Lord that I needed.  Please pray for me, the Lord knows all about it, but I am a firm believer in prayer, and prayer is a great support for all God’s children.

MISSOURI

I appreciate the Christian Worship Hour service each week and am looking forward to more classic services.  May many souls be won for the Lord through your services.

MINNESOTA

I like to hear about the Bible and the Word of the Lord.  I pray every minute of every day, this world is so sad and He is the only one to turn to, for He is there for me always.  He has and will never fail me and I will not fail Him.

NORTH DAKOTA

God led me to the Christian Worship Hour a year ago when the nation shut down for the pandemic.  I was drawn to Pastor Salem and looked forward to worshipping with him every Sunday.  Recently services were again canceled but I knew immediately I could count on watching Pastor Salem again.  I feel blessed for that opportunity in watching the services. Thank you for keeping Christian Worship Hour going.  2 Corinthians 5:7 “We walk by faith, not by sight.”

PENNSYLVANIA

I watch and listen to Christian Worship Hour often.  I appreciate the preaching from the Bible and giving us the daily truths to live by.  Bless all those that work there as so many people are given the Great Words of our God through your efforts.

MINNESOTA

I thank you for being a light through all this darkness that surrounds us in this world today.  I have mentioned my afflictions to you and asked for prayer before.  Please continue to pray for me.  Christian Worship Hour is a beacon of hope in a fallen world.  There are few preachers like Pastor Salem who truly believe and preach the way he does.

OREGON

I watch Christian Worship Hour on CTN and enjoy the messages.  I was born in a Pentecostal home and my father was a lay pastor and lived to be 95 years old.  My mother was his prayer partner.  My husband accepted the Lord at the age of 80!  Jesus works wonders!  God bless your ministry.

FLORIDA

I love the Christian Worship Hour.  It brought me back to the Lord.

ILLINOIS

Pastor Salem’s messages, talks, writings have been a blessing and have inspired me to feel and have love grow in my heart to care about the souls of my family and neighbors.

NEVADA

MEMORIALS

“And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.”

In Loving Memory of PASTOR HAROLD E. SALEM
Our family would like to thank you all for the outpouring of love you have shown us during this time. Our dad loved
the Lord with his heart and soul. As a result, he loved people and desired that they would receive Jesus as their Savior.
It was our privilege to be able to call this man of God “dad”. We loved dad greatly and will miss him daily. We look
forward to the day we will see dad again. Thank you once again for your gifts to CWH and for the prayers that have
sustained us.
In His Love,
Patty, Daniel, Sharron, Michael
