We report the news from a Biblical Worldview…….I took this photo a couple of years ago near Datil, NM. I so much love rural New Mexico…salt of the earth people.
We continue to pray for rain/snow in New Mexico. This coming week is going to bring us temperatures in the upper 60’s, maybe even hit 70 with no moisture in site. I travel to First Baptist Church in Reserve most Sundays and I see the destruction of the drought. The ranch land is so very parched. Many ranchers are having to sell off their cattle. We have more problems in this state than, ‘Carter has liver pills” yes, that is an old saying, but I’m so disturbed that many do not see these problems through the eyes of JESUS.
So many are focused on the wrong thing, they spew ‘nothing noise’ they are stubborn, they block out Jesus. All the problems we face in our state and nation are spiritual problems. JESUS is no longer at the center in the lives of almost 50% of Americans, or more.
I love this quote from Christine Caine: It takes a huge commitment to stay focused these days. There are so many moving parts that need our attention and an ever-changing landscape that must be navigated. I’ve never had to work harder to keep the main thing the main thing. We need the wisdom and guidance of Holy Spirit.
Our ranchers are hurting, so many people in America are hurting. Our nation is divided right down the middle. We are stuck in the muck.
When you go to Church today please keep our precocious ranchers in your prayers. Kyle Land and Theresa Davis of the Albuquerque Journal do such an awesome job in reporting on the drought New Mexico ranchers face historic drought
We face so many problems in New Mexico…………

In the meantime……….
PRAY TEAM JESUS! Demand For Food Aid in New Mexico is Increasing Dramatically!
In New Mexico, 315,990 people are struggling with hunger – and of them 114,180 are children. I am so very thankful for all the folks in the state working to feed those in need. In Reserve, where I serve at the First Baptist Church, the community has an excellent Food Bank! We are in very tough shape in the state in so many ways, and it is getting worse. As many argue about politics, many in this state go hungry. SHAME! According to several indicators by the national 2020 Kids Count Data Book, New Mexico still ranks 50th in the nation on child well–being. New Mexico has now ranked at the very bottom of the list for the fourth year for child well–being after ranking 50th in 2013, 2018, and 2019. What do you think God thinks of us? I warned about this years and years ago….much of the American Church lost the salt shaker and replaced it with the candy dish. We are praying a deep rice. The late great man of God, Chuck Colson said years ago that the ‘American Church had turned into a high school pep rally.’ Many love those ‘pep rallies’ Many have made politics their God.
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. Matthew 5:13
Dr. Jim Denison: Early Christians are our model with their passionate commitment to Jesus and to each other. They “devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts 2:42). Consequently, in contrast to the selfish materialism of their day, “all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need” (vv. 44–45).
Billy Graham: There’s a dichotomy of man and God. Man is in conflict with the truth of God. God speaks of a fall and a condemnation, and His key word is “grace.” Modern man speaks of the soul’s native goodness, its aspirations and takes pride in natural good will. Man’s key word is “works.”
God speaks of the depths into which men have fallen. Man boasts of his ideals and his progress. God calls men to believe in Christ or be lost. Man says that it is enough to try to be like Christ. Man’s goal is imitation, not redemption. God declares that Christ is the Savior of the world. Man claims that Christ is just a great example.
Slowly we have drifted away from the Biblical truth that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness (Hebrews 9:22). Man would like to make of the cross a thing of sentiment — a trinket to be worn around the neck — an ornament on a church steeple or an emblem stamped in gold on our Bibles.
A certain romantic interest has gathered around the story of the cross. But it is the suffering and sacrifice of Christ on Calvary that symbolize man’s utter helplessness to save himself. The cross as the supreme symbol of suffering reveals two basic facts that cannot be denied: the depth of man’s depravity and the immensity of God’s love.
We must not ignore God’s call on our lives for He desires that all people come to His salvation and the knowledge of His truth (1 Timothy 2:3-4).
This is not about politics, it is a Spiritual issue, New Mexico is spiritually dry, it is spiritually broke. We abort God’s babies, many are hungry, children are abused…..the list goes on and on, but so many are tied up in politics, thinking that is the answer, JESUS is the answer not awful politics. We see where politics, has gotten this state! SHAME! I love my JESUS, I love His children, I love my state, but I hate what people have done and are doing to it! I love the community of Reserve, they really care for each other! Support your local Food Bank!
