The Church In Various Aspects 11-27-23


Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good! Just think about all of the blessings He has bestowed on you and start to give Him praise.

Today’s Prayer

Father, this prayer is short and to the point. There is so much anger in the world today. We have people lashing out at each other over tiny insignificant things. I come against the spirit of anger that tries to take away the peace and love you have given to those that belong to you. I pray this in the matchless name of Jesus, Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Church In Various Aspects

A Hidden Mystery Revealed

Ephesians 3:1-9

1.  For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, 2.  If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: 3.  How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4.  Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5.  Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 6.  That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: 7.  Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. 8.  Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; 9.  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

A Precious Treasure Purchased

Matthew 13:46  

He discovered a real bargain–a pearl of great value–and sold everything he owned to purchase it!

A Body now being Formed

Ephesians 5:27-30

27.  That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28.  So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29.  For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30.  For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.


A Spiritual House being constructed

1 Peter 2:5  

And now you have become living building-stones for God’s use in building his house. What’s more, you are his holy priests; so come to him–[you who are acceptable to him because of Jesus Christ]–and offer to God those things that please him.

A Holy Bride to be Presented

Revelation 21:2  

And I, John, saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven. It was a glorious sight, beautiful as a bride at her wedding.

Quote of the Day

Slowly, slowly, if we plug ourselves into the socket of God’s way, God’s truth and God’s life, we will begin to see God’s plan for our lives and for the world. If we are attentive to God, and make ourselves present to him, we will begin to know what to pray for in our intercessory prayer. As we begin to plug ourselves into God, we will start to ask for the right things, and our prayers will start to be answered. As Jesus says in the Gospel, “Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in my name, I will do it.” But to ask for anything in Jesus’ name means we must first be plugged into God’s way, his truth and his life. ~Benjamin J King~
