Something to Ponder
Seven days without prayer makes one weak!
Remember to pray each day, for yourself and especially for others. Be a blessing to God for the sake of others.
The Book of Jude
There is so much to learn in these verses and to dwell upon. The Lord's ways of dealing with the evil unfold in these verses. Also, more importantly, the call for believers to persevere and to do everything possible to save others.
Love Message – Romans 12:10-13
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
An Invitation to Life
Holy, Holy, Lord Most High, guide us how to live by your will and grow by your Word. Help us to shower others with your love and grant us hope in your Word. We pray these things in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Faith is a gift given to us by the Holy Spirit and it must be nurtured in order to grow. That is why we must face trials in our lives, so we can exercise our faith muscles. Our faith is constantly being tested so that we can make sure that our base faith is deeply rooted in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. Please read Matthew 25: 1-13, "The Parable Of The Ten Virgins." The Lord is inviting us into his kingdom but we must be prepared by continuously growing in our faith. The parable refers to taking extra oil in jars so that the virgins would not run out of oil in order to keep the lamps lit until the hour that the bridegroom arrived to take them to the wedding banquet. Now as you reread this parable insert the word Faith in place of oil and the name of Jesus instead of the bridegroom. Look carefully at these verses!
Also, remember this verse to live by:
The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself." – Galatians 5:14
Love and Blessings,
Special Scripture Reading
For a deeper understanding of God's desire of our relationship with Him, please read John 15:1-17, "The Vine and the Branches." As you are studying these passages please give special attention to the following scriptures:
Your everyday life is your personal spiritual challenge. For guidance and direction read the Old Testament book of Job and find the answers from Jesus in the New Testament book of Matthew.
Love and Blessings,
Where is our Citizenship?
If someone were to ask you where does your citizenship reside, how would you respond? I think most of us would name the country of our birth without a second thought. The apostle Paul, however, had a different answer to this question!
Have You Forgotten
Have you forgotten I AM on the throne? Have you forgotten Satan overthrown? Have you given up the fight?
Where is God now? Why did he let this happen to me? Where are you on your walk with God?
Are you a seeker of the Lord Jesus Christ? Are you searching for meaning and purpose in your life? Do you wonder about God's purposes and why he responds to people's prayers in different ways?
Trust God... Let Go!
God is faithful and true to his promises. Seek and search throughout the entire old and new testaments of the Bible; the Lord always keeps his promises. It is not the Lord who lets us down in our lives, but he most assuredly is usually given all the blame. How often do we blame God when things don't go the way we want them to?
Seeking Peace and Pursuing it
Let us begin with Psalm 34 for our Bible study and search for peace.
"Momentum… Once you are moving in the direction of God, nothing can stop you!"
Looking for a way to put order into your life on a daily basis? Do you need some motivation and uplifting in your normal routine? Momentum offers a quick outline on how to prioritize your life on a daily basis.
Nothing Will Keep Me Down
When I struggle physically or mentally I turn to the Lord. He gives power, strength, confidence, and solutions to problems I would never have dreamed of.
