Invitation to the Lord’s Salvation 06-18-24

Good day everyone. Because of summer school, I spend a considerable amount of my weekdays around young people. I’m amazed by the number of this generation that have no sense of respect for anyone in authority. They have no fear of anything and most come from homes where God is not known or spoken about. We as the faith community need to stand in the gap and be intentional in our prayer for this generation. Sometimes that is the only recourse we have. The need for salvation is the thing that’s hitting my spirit so I went straight to the Word for this meal. Don’t just read this today; pass it along to someone that you feel in your heart can benefit from it.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Lord Jesus, when we feel helpless, hurt, ridiculed and forsaken, remind us that You have felt that way too. There is really NOTHING that we can ever face that You have not experienced. If we are a hostage or a prisoner, or if we are in bondage to sin, You were that also when You hung on the cross. If we feel helpless when a loved one suffers, or turns away from us, You also knew sadness when Your love was rejected. If there seems to be no one for us in our loneliness, grief or suffering, we should remember that You too must have felt deserted, alone and without hope in the Garden of Gethsemane. Oh Lord, only You can really understand our problems. What a friend we have in You! We are not alone, are we? Thank You, Lord, and we ask that You continue to fill our lives with Your glorious presence. In Your holy name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Invitation to the Lord’s Salvation

Isaiah 55

“Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink—even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk—it’s all free! Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength? Why pay for food that does you no good?  Listen to me, and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the finest food. “Come to me with your ears wide open. Listen, and you will find life. I will make an everlasting covenant with you. I will give you all the unfailing love I promised to David. See how I used him to display my power among the peoples. I made him a leader among the nations. You also will command nations you do not know, and peoples unknown to you will come running to obey, because I, the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, have made you glorious.” Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously. “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. “The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. You will live in joy and peace. The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands! Where once there were thorns, cypress trees will grow. Where nettles grew, myrtles will sprout up. These events will bring great honor to the Lord’s name; they will be an everlasting sign of his power and love.”

Romes 10:9

If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Quote of the Day

We must quit bending the Word to suit our situation. It is we who must be bent to that Word, our necks that must bow under the yoke. ~Elisabeth Elliot~
