Good morning everyone. This morning I’m going old school with the meal. Today I’m going to share a meal I sent out twelve years ago. It shows how we should listen to the word. First we will pray.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Lord, help us to think about Ruth Brown’s observation that: “We should resolve to be more understanding of the very young, the old, the weak, and the sick. Sometime in life we will each have been all of these.” Help us to understand our generational differences. Young people have new ideas, new ways to do things, energy, and enthusiasm to offer. Older people have wisdom, learned from years of trial and error. It is hard for older people to stand by and be ignored, and see the next generation make the same mistakes rather than building on knowledge already gained. Help us to learn to respect each other’s gifts and achievements. If we can’t do this, why would anyone want to exercise and take vitamins in order to become healthy “senior citizens?” Is this generation’s answer abortion, and euthanasia next? Oh Lord, help us each to realize that life is Your precious gift for each of us to live wisely, with Your help and within Your will. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

According To:


According to His Mercy


Titus 3:3-5

Once we, too, were foolish and disobedient. We were misled and became slaves to many lusts and pleasures. Our lives were full of evil and envy, and we hated each other. But—“When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. 


Is our Salvation According to His Riches


Philippians 4:19 

And it is he who will supply all your needs from his riches in glory, because of what Christ Jesus has done for us.


Is our Supply According to His Power


Colossians 1:9-11 

So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better. We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy,


Quote of the Day

Christ is a person so dear to the Father, that those who are in Christ need not be at all jealous of being accepted upon his account. If Christ is accepted they must of consequence be accepted, for they are in Christ, as members, as parts, as the same. They are the body of Christ, his flesh and his bones. They that are in Christ Jesus, are one spirit; and therefore, if God loves Christ Jesus, he must of necessity accept of those that are in him, and that are of him. But Christ is a person exceedingly dear to the Father, the Father’s love to the Son is really infinite. God necessarily loves the Son; God could as soon cease to be, as cease to love the Son. He is God’s elect, in whom his soul delighteth; he is his beloved Son, in whom he is ell pleased; he loved him before the foundation of the world, and had infinite delight in him from all eternity.

Jonathan Edwards
