OUR HOPE 08-16-21

_ 081614 Our hope in Jesus

Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good and worthy of our praise. My encouragement this morning is for everyone to leave all of the past baggage in the past and ask the Lord for new luggage.

Today’s Prayer

Dear heavenly Father, on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ I come before you today to ask you to help us learn to release our yesterdays, especially when we may have lived by our own desires and not by Your Word. Remind us that You want us to sincerely repent, and to commit ourselves all over again. Teach us to leave our tomorrows in Your hands, knowing that You want the best for us. Help us to look forward to each new day with open arms! Let us learn to seek Your will early in the morning, and to recognize the blessings and opportunities that await us. Every day You show Your love in so many ways; thank You that we can indeed count on You. Help us to recognize our many opportunities for sharing Your love with others, and help us to be the faithful servants that You want us to be. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

Christ Gave Himself

For all

1 Timothy 2:6

He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.

The Widest Circle For many

Mark 10:45

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

The Believing Circle For the church

Ephesians 5:25

For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her

The Elect Circle For me

Galatians 2:20

My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

There is a general and a special view of the work of the Cross. Both are true, but they should never be confused.

Quote  of the Day

God will not turn away from doing you good. He will keep on doing good. He doesn’t do good to His children sometimes and bad to them other times. He keeps on doing good and He never will stop doing good for ten thousand ages of ages. When things are going bad that does not mean God has stopped doing good. It means He is shifting things around to get them in place for more good, if you will go on loving Him. ~John Piper~
