The World’s Hatred 01-13-17

(CLICK THE TITLE) Good morning everyone. Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice! We are few days before the day that has been designated to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. I ask that you take a few moments to reflect on his dream for this nation because we are not there yet. What can you do in your life to move closer to the dream?

Today’s Prayer

(An individual Prayer for today)

I will rejoice and be glad. Oh God, Father in heaven, Creator and Savior of mankind, I thank You for another day of life. I thank You for eternal life and the great opportunity and reward of being with You in heaven in the days to come. Until then, I will rejoice and be glad, for whatever man may do to me, no one can take away the promises I have in You. No one can snatch me from the hands of Jesus. I draw strength from Your Holy Spirit which has sealed me unto that day of redemption. The rocks and the trees cry out to You; how much more does my soul long for You, Oh God. Thank You for loving me and embracing me. My trust is in You. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

The World’s Hatred

John 15:18-27

18 “If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first. 19 The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you. 20 Do you remember what I told you? ‘A slave is not greater than the master.’ Since they persecuted me, naturally they will persecute you. And if they had listened to me, they would listen to you. 21 They will do all this to you because of me, for they have rejected the One who sent me. 22 They would not be guilty if I had not come and spoken to them. But now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Anyone who hates me also hates my Father. 24 If I hadn’t done such miraculous signs among them that no one else could do, they would not be guilty. But as it is, they have seen everything I did, yet they still hate me and my Father. 25 This fulfills what is written in their Scriptures: ‘They hated me without cause.’

26 “But I will send you the Advocate—the Spirit of truth. He will come to you from the Father and will testify all about me. 27 And you must also testify about me because you have been with me from the beginning of my ministry.

Quote of the Day

I am not what I ought to be. I am not what I want to be. I am not what I hope to be. But still, I am not what I used to be. And by the grace of God, I am what I am.
