Good morning everyone. How is your spiritual love life this morning. Are you talking and hearing from the Father? Oh I’m just curious. I don’t need an answer, you do. I would also like to request special prayer for my brother Paul Carruthers and my brother-in-law Boyd Sharp who are both in the hospital and need our help. Pray as the spirit leads you.


Lord, Your Word tells us “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5). I pray right now on behalf of my brothers and sisters, in the name of Jesus, that you would rebuke every evil thought, tear down every stronghold in our lives, and help us Lord, to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. Help me to overcome and to rise above all that pulls me down. Help us to soar with the Eagles and restore fellowship with You. May our lives be a living testimony to You, Oh God. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Let’s eat.


In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. – Romans 6:11

Let me ask you something important. What are the things that arouse the strongest emotions in you? Perhaps it is a rude motorist who cuts you off in traffic. Maybe it is the anger you feel when you are wrongfully accused. Possibly it is frustration that results from not having enough money to meet perceived needs. When do emotions turn into sin?

Whenever our peace is upset over events and circumstances in life, we have moved past emotions into sin. Sin says that circumstances of life now dictate anxiety, worry, fear, or anger. Consider the attributes of a dead man. He doesn’t get angry when slandered. He doesn’t worry about the future. He doesn’t fear what can be done to him. Why? Because he is dead. Nothing can harm a dead man.

Jesus said we are to live as if we are dead – dead to the temptation of responding to distractions in our life that are designed to stir up the sinful nature that resides in each of us. We don’t have to respond to that nature; we can consider it dead. Jesus said He is enough. When He is our all in all, nothing can move us. If we are moved, then Jesus is not our all in all. I know that’s deep but its the truth.


What do you have in your hand? Perhaps you, like Moses, feel that you have nothing with which you can serve God. But think about what your neighbours need. Maybe you can help them with whatever is in your hand. Maybe that is exactly what they need.
