_ 030515 Saved

(CLICK THE TITLE) Good morning everyone. Another day is before us and a chance to start over and make things right with God. It’s in my spirit this morning that I can’t assume that everyone that’s reading this message is saved. So I’m led by the Holy Spirit to present this prayer:


    Father, I come before you today as a sinner, broken, in need of forgiveness. In my heart I believe that Your son Jesus, lived, died on the cross for my sins and arose on that wonderful Sunday morning and is now seated at Your right hand. I ask at this moment that He come into my life as my Lord and savior.


    If you prayed that prayer from your heart, you are now saved. Welcome into God’s family!

Let’s eat.


Under His Wings


Ruth 2:1-12

1.  Now Naomi had an in-law there in Bethlehem who was a very wealthy man. His name was Boaz. 2.  One day Ruth said to Naomi, “Perhaps I can go out into the fields of some kind man to glean the free grain behind his reapers.”And Naomi said, “All right, dear daughter. Go ahead.” 3.  So she did. And as it happened, the field where she found herself belonged to Boaz, this relative of Naomi’s husband. 4.  Boaz arrived from the city while she was there. After exchanging greetings with the reapers he said to his foreman, “Hey, who’s that girl over there?” 6.  And the foreman replied, “It’s that girl from the land of Moab who came back with Naomi. 7.  She asked me this morning if she could pick up the grains dropped by the reapers, and she has been at it ever since except for a few minutes’ rest over there in the shade.” 8.  Boaz went over and talked to her. “Listen, my child,” he said to her. “Stay right here with us to glean; don’t think of going to any other fields. Stay right behind my women workers; I have warned the young men not to bother you; when you are thirsty, go and help yourself to the water.” 10.  She thanked him warmly. “How can you be so kind to me?” she asked. “You must know I am only a foreigner.” “Yes, I know,” Boaz replied, “and I also know about all the love and kindness you have shown your mother-in-law since the death of your husband, and how you left your father and mother in your own land and have come here to live among strangers. 12.  May the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge, bless you for it.”

 Trusting Under His Shadow

Song of Solomon 2:3  

“My lover is an apple tree, the finest in the orchard as compared with any of the other youths. I am seated in his much-desired shade and his fruit is lovely to eat.


 Resting Under His Banner

John 2:4  

“I can’t help you now,” he said. “It isn’t yet my time for miracles.”

 Communing with GOD is our purpose!

Quote of the Day

Jesus embodies the rule of God in which no one is beyond God’s forgiveness no matter who they are or what they have done. Endowed with the presence and power of God through by John in the Jordan, Jesus comes proclaiming that the rule of God supplants all others now. When the scribes and the Pharisees chide him for eating with the traitorous Jewish tax collectors, Jesus responds: ‘Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.’ The answer to my parishioner’s burning question [about divine forgiveness] was, of course: No, you cannot be too bad to be forgiven. You can only be too good. [For example: Too self-righteous to be humble, compassionate, or receptive to God’s spirit.]
