Good morning everyone. The Lord is good and worthy to be praised. Every ounce of my being praises the Lord this morning. May he pour out a double dose of His spirit on everyone reading this message today and may you shine your light for someone else to be blessed by.

Today’s Prayer

Lord Jesus, help us understand that when we became committed Christians, we also became Satan’s target, for a lukewarm Christian is no threat to him. We may not always recognize Satan, for as C. S. Lewis wrote, “If one hasn’t met Satan, it is probably because one is going his way!” … Remind us that at Your baptism by John the Baptist, the triune Godhead was there: You, the Son, the Holy Spirit descending like a dove from heaven, and God the Father, whose voice was heard saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.” You were “empowered” in a mighty way for Your ministry. But then You, Jesus, were “led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.” You were tested, just as we will be; and You passed Your test, just as we can too with Your help, for “He who is in you is greater than he [Satan] who is in the world.” Thank You that You have promised to be with us always, and that Your grace will be sufficient for all of our needs. In Your holy name we pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

Short and Sweet Truth

Revelation 21:1-8

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children. “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Quote of the Day

I share Einstein’s affirmation that anyone who is not lost on the rapturous awe at the power and glory of the mind behind the universe “is as good as a burnt out candle.”
