Good day everyone. On this last day of the year I can only focus on the Word. The Bible speaks of the Word of God as living. “Rhema” is a Greek word meaning “living.” Sometimes the Holy Spirit speaks through the living Word regarding a specific situation in which we find ourselves. It is one of those mysteries that God does from time to time. As you read your Bible, be aware of the Rhema Word of God. He may speak to you in specific ways you never thought possible. We are going to finish out the year with one of the most important words in the bible; “LOVE.”

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come before You this day on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ to ask that You Please make us a blessing. We present ourselves to you, a living sacrifice, for ministry to the world. We pray that we would see others through your eyes of love and concern and that we would ask ourselves “What would Jesus do?” Please forgive us for the times we have been selfish or apathetic, for the times we have missed out on the opportunity to minister and be a blessing. We pray for all the people in our families and communities who need a blessing right now. We pray for Christians around the world who need your hand of blessing right now. Lord, you know the need. You are good, all the time. We pray that in your mercy, you will reach out in the way you know best and meet those needs, uplift those spirits, bless those souls, for your glory. In the wonderful name of Jesus I pray, Amen and Amen.

Let’s eat.

Love Is the Greatest

1 Corinthians 13

If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! But when full understanding comes, these partial things will become useless. When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

Quote of the Day

The sovereign God wants to be loved for Himself and honor for Himself, but that is only part of what He wants. The other part is that He wants us to know that when we have Him we have everything – we have all the rest.
