_ 041715 READY

Greetings everyone. This is the day that the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it. In spite of what might happen that may not be to my liking, I will rejoice. We need to keep Him first and we won’t be last.

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come before you this morning on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ to ask that You would remind us that this nation (USA) was once great because it was established on Your Christian legacy and by people who held Your Word to be sacred and Your sovereignty to be supreme. Help us not to be too quick to destroy our foundations in our haste to build a new global order — an order where diversity is revered and no unifying moral guidelines are offered. Forgive us for seeking the quick fix, the surface-surgery, when we need to rebuild our moral base and set limits on our sexual excesses. We need to be accountable and responsible for our individual actions and honest in all of our dealings, showing concern for those in need. Oh Lord, our nation’s leaders and citizens alike must set moral examples for all young people, WORLD WIDE. If we won’t do it, You will be forced to bring our nation to its knees. Forgive us for deserting Your high calling and sabotaging Your plan. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.


The Sinner is “ready to perish”

Isaiah 27:11-13 – 

The people are like the dead branches of a tree, broken off and used for kindling beneath the cooking pots. Israel is a foolish and stupid nation, for its people have turned away from God. Therefore, the one who made them will show them no pity or mercy. Yet the time will come when the Lord will gather them together like handpicked grain. One by one he will gather them—from the Euphrates River in the east to the Brook of Egypt in the west. In that day the great trumpet will sound. Many who were dying in exile in Assyria and Egypt will return to Jerusalem to worship the Lord on his holy mountain.

God is “ready to pardon”

Nehemiah 9:16-18 – 

“But our ancestors were proud and stubborn, and they paid no attention to your commands. They refused to obey and did not remember the miracles you had done for them. Instead, they became stubborn and appointed a leader to take them back to their slavery in Egypt! But you are a God of forgiveness, gracious and merciful, slow to become angry, and rich in unfailing love. You did not abandon them, even when they made an idol shaped like a calf and said, ‘This is your god who brought you out of Egypt!’ They committed terrible blasphemies.

Salvation is “ready to be revealed”

1 Peter 1:3-5 – 

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see.

The Son of Man is “ready to judge”

1 Peter 4:4-6 –

Of course, your former friends are surprised when you no longer plunge into the flood of wild and destructive things they do. So they slander you. But remember that they will have to face God, who will judge everyone, both the living and the dead. That is why the Good News was preached to those who are now dead—so although they were destined to die like all people, they now live forever with God in the Spirit.

Quote of the Day

You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; and just so, you learn to love by loving. All those who think to learn in any other way deceive themselves. ~Frances de Sales~
