_ 052414 Serving Others

Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good and worthy of our praise. So many people I speak with on a daily basis, believers and non-believers are bound up by the results of sin in their lives and really don’t know it or understand what is going on. Today I’m sharing some eye opening scriptures so be blessed.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Lord Jesus, I ask on behalf of believers everywhere that You remind us that if we are to call ourselves truly committed Christians, then we must not leave our Christianity on the church doorstep when we leave the Sunday service. Help us see that we must stand for You in all of our daily dealings; secular, political and personal. If we don’t stand on Your Word, how will others see You in us? However, there is more, You want us to go and tell others about You. Otherwise, even though we may live a kind and caring life, no one will know that it is because of You and Your help. You are the “good news,” You are the message that God the Father sent. Help us to be open to Your leading. Give us the wisdom, and the words, and the courage to know what to say and when to say it, so that others may desire to know You. It’s in your wonderful name I pray, Amen and Amen.

Let’s eat.


Bond-servants of Sin

John 8:31-38 –

Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” “But we are descendants of Abraham,” they said. “We have never been slaves to anyone. What do you mean, ‘You will be set free’?” Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave of sin. A slave is not a permanent member of the family, but a son is part of the family forever. So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free. Yes, I realize that you are descendants of Abraham. And yet some of you are trying to kill me because there’s no room in your hearts for my message. I am telling you what I saw when I was with my Father. But you are following the advice of your father.”

By Nature; Bond-servants of Satan

Acts 26:18 –

One day I was on such a mission to Damascus, armed with the authority and commission of the leading priests. About noon, Your Majesty, as I was on the road, a light from heaven brighter than the sun shone down on me and my companions. We all fell down, and I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? It is useless for you to fight against my will.’ “‘Who are you, lord?’ I asked. “And the Lord replied, ‘I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting. Now get to your feet! For I have appeared to you to appoint you as my servant and witness. You are to tell the world what you have seen and what I will show you in the future. And I will rescue you from both your own people and the Gentiles. Yes, I am sending you to the Gentiles to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.’

By Conquest, Bond-servants of Christ

Romans 1:1-7

This letter is from Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, chosen by God to be an apostle and sent out to preach his Good News. God promised this Good News long ago through his prophets in the holy Scriptures. The Good News is about his Son. In his earthly life he was born into King David’s family line, and he was shown to be the Son of God when he was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit. He is Jesus Christ our Lord. Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority as apostles to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name. And you are included among those Gentiles who have been called to belong to Jesus Christ. I am writing to all of you in Rome who are loved by God and are called to be his own holy people. May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.

Quote of the Day

We humans are a hungry lot. We are driven by a craving to know who we are. Yet who we are is embedded in the heart of a holy God. Unless we seek for ourselves in the epicenter of God’s grace, we will be forever condemned to walk the arid edges of self-understanding.
