Good morning everyone. Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good and He is worthy of all our praise. It’s time for a spiritual gut check and I’m certain I have shared this message a time or two over the years. How are you living? Does your life line up with the word? Just giving you something to think about this morning, let’s pray.

Today’s Prayer

Father, the answers that we receive when we pray certainly demonstrate Your faithfulness to us, but they are also dependent upon our being obedient and faithful to You. Your Word tells us that we cannot expect to have our prayers answered while we are living in sin and in disobedience to Your wishes for us. Oh Lord, help us to sincerely repent of any wrong-doing before we come to You with our needs. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Listening and Doing

James 1:19-27

Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires. So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls. But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it. If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.

Quote of the Day

When you say a prayer, He (Holy Spirit) is in every word of it, and like a Holy Fire, penetrates each word.

John of Kronstadt
