Glenn’s Meal 07-31-13


Good morning everyone. Praise God and thank Him for His mercy and grace but most of all for the mercy we are afforded every waking moment because of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Today we are going to feast on God’s mercy.


Father, I come before you this morning on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ to ask you to help us accept the fact that life is often filled with trials — earthquakes, floods, fires, tornadoes, lay-offs, accidents, sickness, and loss of loved ones, interspersed with times of joy, gentle love, helping hands, quiet peace, and indomitable hope! Help us remember that others have faced similar problems, and found You. Let our faith never falter, for in the midst of our adversities You are there. Let us resolve to put our hands in Yours, for You have said that You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life. New opportunities will come, new doors will open. The sun will shine again! Help us trust You all the way, and to be ready. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.


New Living Translation
Romans 11:25-36

I want you to understand this mystery, dear brothers and sisters, so that you will not feel proud about yourselves. Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts, but this will last only until the full number of Gentiles comes to Christ. And so all Israel will be saved. As the Scriptures say, “The one who rescues will come from Jerusalem, and he will turn Israel away from ungodliness. And this is my covenant with them, that I will take away their sins.” Many of the people of Israel are now enemies of the Good News, and this benefits you Gentiles. Yet they are still the people he loves because he chose their ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. For God’s gifts and his call can never be withdrawn. Once, you Gentiles were rebels against God, but when the people of Israel rebelled against him, God was merciful to you instead. Now they are the rebels, and God’s mercy has come to you so that they, too, will share in God’s mercy. For God has imprisoned everyone in disobedience so he could have mercy on everyone. Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways! For who can know the Lord’s thoughts? Who knows enough to give him advice? And who has given him so much that he needs to pay it back? For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.


“There he is. In the temple again. Causing trouble. Speaking very different from other preachers. Speaking with authority about sorrow, anxiety, sickness, and death. Penetrating the dark corners of human existence. Shattering illusion. Make no mistake about it; this is a dangerous Man.”
