Week of Twentieth Sunday After Pentecost… 10/22/2017 *push/click*

LOVE… LOVE MORE… LOVE EVEN MORE…

Our Lord Jesus, you have endured the doubts and foolish questions of every generation. Forgive us for trying to be judge over you, and grant us the confident faith to acknowledge you as Lord.

LOVE… LOVE MORE… LOVE EVEN MORE…

I really want to share with you a teaching of Jesus Christ written in the Holy Gospel in our Holy Bible… IT READS…

Mark 10:2-16

The Pharisees came and asked Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” testing Him.

And He answered and said to them, “What did Moses command you?”

They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to dismiss her.

And Jesus answered and said to them, “Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’[a] ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; [b] so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

10 In the house His disciples also asked Him again about the same matter. 11 So He said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. 12 And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”

Jesus Blesses Little Children

13 Then they brought little children to Him, that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them. 14 But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. 15 Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” 16 And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them.

This reminds me how broken of a world we live in… I remember learning, in my Sexual Behavior class at Arizona State University, that 50% of marriages end in divorce…

As a child from parents who divorced, I can tell you how much this sucks…

BUT, I WOULD RATHER PUT MY WORDS INTO ACTION AND SHOW THE WORLD THAT I WILL BE ONE FAITHFUL MAN.

LOVE… LOVE MORE… LOVE EVEN MORE…

AFTER-ALL, THERE IS ENOUGH TALKING IN THIS WORLD…

Q: Do YOU think nice guys finish last???

A: LOVE… LOVE MORE… LOVE EVEN MORE…

Hebrews 2:9-11

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.

Bringing Many Sons to Glory

10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,

BROTHERS AND SISTERS… I LOVE THE HOLY BIBLE!!!

Nineteenth Sunday After Pentecost… 10/15/2017 *push/click*

YES… i AM LUTHERAN…

God of Love, you know our frailties and failings.  Give us your grace to overcome them; keep us from those things that harm us; and guide us in the way of salvation; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

YES… i AM LUTHERAN…

lol… I AM REALLY STUBBORN…

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Nineteenth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

I have been using scriptures suggested in our Hymnal; however, my lessons will differ from most Church’s readings because the scriptures coincide with this entry on this blog… so… I am off script according to our Hymnal… The year will match up at the end of Pentecost… 🙂

As for salvation, I want to share with you the Holy Gospel written in the book of Mark… IT READS…

Mark 9:38-50

Jesus Forbids Sectarianism

38 Now John answered Him, saying, “Teacher, we saw someone who does not follow us casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us.”

39 But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My name can soon afterward speak evil of Me. 40 For he who is not against us is on our[a] side. 41 For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.

eye

YES… i AM LUTHERAN…

Jesus Warns of Offenses

42 “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea. 43 If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched— 44 where

‘Their worm does not die
And the fire is not quenched.’[b]

45 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame, rather than having two feet, to be cast into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched— 46 where

‘Their worm does not die,
And the fire is not quenched.’[c]

47 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire— 48 where

‘Their worm does not die
And the fire is not quenched.’[d]

Tasteless Salt Is Worthless

49 “For everyone will be seasoned with fire,[e] and every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt. 50 Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another.”

THROUGH THESE SCRIPTURES, I believe that Jesus is telling us to make a way for those with Him in their hearts… We should be mindful and let these people be… what I mean, is that denominations in the church are only a way for men to try to understand God.  No “religion” is wrong if the body is doing works in the name of the Lord.

The thing Jesus IS calling us to share His abounding love for us through works…

OUR BROTHER PAUL WRITES…

Romans 5:6-11

Christ in Our Place

6 For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

Matthew 22:1-14

The Parable of the Wedding Feast

22 And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said: “The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.”’ But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’ 10 So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests.

11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. 12 So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. 13 Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and[a] cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”

Mark 9:30-32

Jesus Again Predicts His Death and Resurrection

30 Then they departed from there and passed through Galilee, and He did not want anyone to know it. 31 For He taught His disciples and said to them, “The Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill Him. And after He is killed, He will rise the third day.” 32 But they did not understand this saying, and were afraid to ask Him.

For the second time Jesus predicts His own death and resurrection…

I find this #repetition awesome!

REMEMBER LAST WEEK’s HOLY GOSPEL READING???

Mark 8:31-33

 Jesus Predicts His Death and Resurrection

31 And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 He spoke this word openly. Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. 33 But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, “Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

The second part of the Gospel reminds me that the disciples were only human…

Mark 9:33-37

Who Is the Greatest?

33 Then He came to Capernaum. And when He was in the house He asked them, “What was it you disputed among yourselves on the road?”34 But they kept silent, for on the road they had disputed among themselves who would be the greatest. 35 And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.” 36 Then He took a little child and set him in the midst of them. And when He had taken him in His arms, He said to them, 37 “Whoever receives one of these little children in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me, receives not Me but Him who sent Me.”

I pray that we demonstrate the same kind of spiritual discipline showing #commitment to our Lord…

BE REPETITIVE…

BE CONSISTENT…

BUT STAY HUMBLE…

Matthew 20:17-28

Jesus a Third Time Predicts His Death and Resurrection

17 Now Jesus, going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples aside on the road and said to them, 18 “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, 19 and deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock and to scourge and to crucify. And the third day He will rise again.”

Matthew 20

Greatness Is Serving

20 Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Him with her sons, kneeling down and asking something from Him.

21 And He said to her, “What do you wish?”

She said to Him, “Grant that these two sons of mine may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on the left, in Your kingdom.”

22 But Jesus answered and said, “You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?”[a]

They said to Him, “We are able.”

23 So He said to them, “You will indeed drink My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with;[b] but to sit on My right hand and on My left is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared by My Father.”

24 And when the ten heard it, they were greatly displeased with the two brothers. 25 But Jesus called them to Himself and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. 26 Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.27 And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave—28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

The more that I learn about our Lord Jesus Christ, the more His love for us becomes evident to me… I am very drawn to the cross… and it is awesome to remind myself that our sins have been put to death with Jesus’s flesh body on a cross…

REMEMBER THE TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD???

ANYWAY…

Back to the cross…

This week, I want to begin by sharing with you the Holy Gospel written in the book of Mark in our New Testament of our Holy Bible.

Mark 8:27-35

Peter Confesses Jesus as the Christ

27 Now Jesus and His disciples went out to the towns of Caesarea Philippi; and on the road He asked His disciples, saying to them, “Who do men say that I am?”

28 So they answered, “John the Baptist; but some say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.”

29 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

Peter answered and said to Him, “You are the Christ.”

30 Then He strictly warned them that they should tell no one about Him.

Jesus Predicts His Death and Resurrection

31 And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 He spoke this word openly. Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. 33 But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, “Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

Take Up the Cross and Follow Him

34 When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 35 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.

DIDNOT

I have to be honest with you…

I LOVE WORKING OUT… I AM GONNA GO TO THE GYM AFTER I READ THESE VERSES WRITTEN BY THE MAJOR PROPHET ISAIAH… (reminds me of PSALMS)

Isaiah 50:4-10

“The Lord God has given Me
The tongue of the learned,
That I should know how to speak
A word in season to him who is weary.
He awakens Me morning by morning,
He awakens My ear
To hear as the learned.
The Lord God has opened My ear;
And I was not rebellious,
Nor did I turn away.
I gave My back to those who struck Me,
And My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard;
I did not hide My face from shame and spitting.

“For the Lord God will help Me;
Therefore I will not be disgraced;
Therefore I have set My face like a flint,
And I know that I will not be ashamed.
He is near who justifies Me;
Who will contend with Me?
Let us stand together.
Who is My adversary?
Let him come near Me.
Surely the Lord God will help Me;
Who is he who will condemn Me?
Indeed they will all grow old like a garment;
The moth will eat them up.

10 “Who among you fears the Lord?
Who obeys the voice of His Servant?
Who walks in darkness
And has no light?
Let him trust in the name of the Lord
And rely upon his God.

My eyes… (put on sunglasses)… 106,000 people all dressed in white will brighten up any game… EVEN DURING A NIGHT GAME! It is truly a sight to see. The white out follows suit of one of the latest trends in college football to have everyone attending the game wear the same color, this past week’s beating… featured yellow and black stripes in the stands… Penn State played IOWA In IOWA CITY. This was cool… but no one can compete with Penn State’s white house.

The white-out occurs inside the football stadium; however, my senses prefer what happens outside the stadium.

2. Tailgating

Sniff… Sniff… I smell Burgers, hotdogs, barbeque chicken… What’s that??? Sniff… Sniff… is that??? No, it can’t be… Sniff… Sniff… IT IS… Well, I be a Penn State Fan (wink)

shrimp, lobster, steak… AWESOME!!! The tailgating routine is common in every college and pro football site in the United States, but at Penn State, the tailgate is a tradition like no other.

AND I like it, because I can practice my public speaking skills by asking for some tailgaters to share some of that good food (wink)…

You know… all this food is going to make me bloated… I’m gonna have to walk it off…

SHOPPING ANYONE???

3. The Shopping is what also makes Happy Valley an awesome college football destination.

When we walk down College Avenue we will find many stores opening their doors for some good deals. WE WILL FIND ANYTHING DAWNING THE Blue & White.

We must…

Unlock the magic of Penn State with a Penn State key. YES… They have Penn State Keys for sale!

When the magic is unlocked we can actually find a

A Nittany Lion suit…

We could dress up like the mascot!

Nittany Lion suit could serve as pajamas or a way to stay warm at those late fall tailgates.

This brings me to my fourth reason why Happy Valley is an awesome college football destination…

We have the best mascot in the big ten-

4. The Nittany Lion

WE ARE!!! (penn state) WE ARE!!! (penn state) WE ARE!!! (penn state) THANK YOU!!! (you’re welcome)

The master of ceremonies on Saturdays, the Nittany Lion takes on the responsibility for getting the crowd ready for the pregame show and entertained during the stoppages in play during the game. He wears a button for Penn State’s moto of the week…

Do you know what the button said for last Saturday??? (vs. Iowa Hawkeyes)

THE NITTANY LION GETS THE CROWD GOING.

The sound of over 100,000 fans cheering on Old State will give any opposing team trying to call plays trouble… THE NOISE…

I need to explain the fifth reason…

5. BEAVER STADIUM…

The steel enclosure is built upwards, unlike Michigan stadium which is built outwards. This makes the noise thick… trying to escape, but, beating down on the ears off the opponents instead. The stadium is also awesome hearing the marching band… which is the sixth reason making Happy Valley an awesome college football destination…

6. The Blue Band

How can you miss hearing… The roar of the bass drums, the saltiness sound of the trumpets, the sweet sound of clarinets…

SOOO…

Let’s go to a Penn State game…

WE ARE!!! (penn state) WE ARE!!! (penn state) WE ARE!!! (penn state) THANK YOU Toastmasters!

TODAY WAS AWESOME!!! WHAT WILL MAKE IT MORE AWESOME IS IF YOU LET ME SHARE THIS WRITING FROM OUR BROTHER PAUL WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF THESSALONIANS… It Reads…

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

Q: WHY DO I STRUGGLE WITH THIS???

Q: AM I WEAK IN FAITH FOR HAVING QUESTIONS???

Q: AM I THINKING CARNALLY, WHEN I SHOULD BE THINKING SPIRITUALLY???

*whispers* it’s good to have questions…

O God, you declare your almighty power chiefly in showing mercy and pity.  Grant us the fullness of your grace, that, pursuing what you have promised, we may share your heavenly glory; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

cross

The more that I learn about our Lord Jesus Christ, the more His love for us becomes evident to me… I am very drawn to the cross… and it is awesome to remind myself that our sins have been put to death with Jesus’s flesh body on a cross…

REMEMBER THE TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD???

ANYWAY…

Back to the cross…

This week, I want to begin by sharing with you the Holy Gospel written in the book of Mark in our New Testament of our Holy Bible.

Mark 8:27-35

Peter Confesses Jesus as the Christ

27 Now Jesus and His disciples went out to the towns of Caesarea Philippi; and on the road He asked His disciples, saying to them, “Who do men say that I am?”

28 So they answered, “John the Baptist; but some say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.”

29 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

Peter answered and said to Him, “You are the Christ.”

30 Then He strictly warned them that they should tell no one about Him.

Jesus Predicts His Death and Resurrection

31 And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 He spoke this word openly. Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. 33 But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, “Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

Take Up the Cross and Follow Him

34 When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 35 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.

DIDNOT

I have to be honest with you…

I LOVE WORKING OUT… I AM GONNA GO TO THE GYM AFTER I READ THESE VERSES WRITTEN BY THE MAJOR PROPHET ISAIAH… (reminds me of PSALMS)

Isaiah 50:4-10

“The Lord God has given Me
The tongue of the learned,
That I should know how to speak
A word in season to him who is weary.
He awakens Me morning by morning,
He awakens My ear
To hear as the learned.
The Lord God has opened My ear;
And I was not rebellious,
Nor did I turn away.
I gave My back to those who struck Me,
And My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard;
I did not hide My face from shame and spitting.

“For the Lord God will help Me;
Therefore I will not be disgraced;
Therefore I have set My face like a flint,
And I know that I will not be ashamed.
He is near who justifies Me;
Who will contend with Me?
Let us stand together.
Who is My adversary?
Let him come near Me.
Surely the Lord God will help Me;
Who is he who will condemn Me?
Indeed they will all grow old like a garment;
The moth will eat them up.

10 “Who among you fears the Lord?
Who obeys the voice of His Servant?
Who walks in darkness
And has no light?
Let him trust in the name of the Lord
And rely upon his God.

My Fellow Toastmasters and Guests…The sun goes down… the moon reflects the awesome light of tomorrow on the field… I am joined by 106,000 members of my family… I hear a distant chant emerging from the sea of blue and white… I, immediately, join in… WE ARE!!!

Sixteenth Sunday After Pentecost… 9/24/2017 *push*

SANCTIFICATION??? *push*

Almighty and eternal God, you know our problems and our weaknesses better than we ourselves.  In your love and by your power help us in our confusion and, in spite of our weakness, make us firm in faith; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

SANCTIFICATION???

Sanctification is the act or process of being made or becoming holy.

Q: Who makes us Holy???

A: That’s where the debate comes into play…

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Sixteenth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

I, personally, find man’s attempt on trying to explain the unknown (religion) fascinating and beautiful!  As I learn more about Christianity, the more I realize, I do not know.  What I think was fascinating was the topic we discussed in bible study this morning… We heard a testimony from a catholic priest.  He referred to priests as community representatives… HOWEVER,  I PREFER TO THINK OF GOD’s ELECT AS TEACHERs OF GOD’s WORD…

workout

I will continue to hear from my Lutheran Pastor… Martin Luther… “This life is not godliness, but growth in godliness; not health, but healing; not being, but becoming; not rest, but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way; the process is not yet finished, but it has begun; this is not the goal, but it is road; at present all does not gleam and glitter, but everything is being purified.”

LOVING THAT HOLY SPIRIT…

MAY I SHARE WITH YOU ONE OF THE MANY MIRACLES PERFORMED BY JESUS CHRIST WRITTEN IN MARK???

Mark 7:31-37

Jesus Heals a Deaf-Mute

31 Again, departing from the region of Tyre and Sidon, He came through the midst of the region of Decapolis to the Sea of Galilee. 32 Then they brought to Him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech, and they begged Him to put His hand on him. 33 And He took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers in his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue. 34 Then, looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.”

35 Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly. 36 Then He commanded them that they should tell no one; but the more He commanded them, the more widely they proclaimed it. 37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”

HMMM… GOD’s ELECT ARE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE COMMUNITY… seriously???

I, now, feel the need to show you something written in our new testament in the Holy Bible…

Sanctification Bible???

#embracethecraziness

James 1:17-27

17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. 18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

Qualities Needed in Trials

19 So then,[a] my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 20 for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

Doers—Not Hearers Only

21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

26 If anyone among you[b] thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. 27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

Fifteenth Sunday After Pentecost… 9/17/2017 *push*

O God, we thank you for your Son who chose the path of suffering for the sake of the world.  Humble us by his example, point us to the path of obedience, and give us strength to follow his commands; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

YOU MAY WHISPER…

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Fifteenth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

Listening is a vital element of being a great leader…

I honestly, try to listen to the call of God…

BUT, How do I know that it is God SPEAKING??? 

Easy

One word…

FAITH

“I AM ALIVE FOR SOME REASON” – THANK YOU GOD!!!

You know, what I want to do???

SCREAM the Holy Gospel at you…

Mark 7:1-8

Defilement Comes from Within

Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes came together to Him, having come from Jerusalem. Now when[a] they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault. For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands in a special way, holding the tradition of the elders. When they come from the marketplace, they do not eat unless they wash. And there are many other things which they have received and hold, like the washing of cups, pitchers, copper vessels, and couches.

Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”

He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:

‘This people honors Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’[b]

For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men[c] —the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.”

AS I READ THIS…

I FEEL THE NEED TO WHISPER A PSALM TO YOU…

Psalm 15

The Character of Those Who May Dwell with the Lord

15 Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle?
Who may dwell in Your holy hill?

He who walks uprightly,
And works righteousness,
And speaks the truth in his heart;
He who does not backbite with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;
In whose eyes a vile person is despised,
But he honors those who fear the Lord;
He who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
He who does not put out his money at usury,
Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things shall never be moved.

I WANT SNOW.

YOU MAY WHISPER…

Ephesians 1:3-6

Redemption in Christ

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

*whisperslet’s go2 that Faith In Action Committee meeting 2night…

Romans 8:24-30

24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us[a] with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

Week of Fifteenth Sunday After Pentecost… 9/17/2017

YOU MAY WHISPER… *push*

O God, we thank you for your Son who chose the path of suffering for the sake of the world.  Humble us by his example, point us to the path of obedience, and give us strength to follow his commands; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

YOU MAY WHISPER… 

don't scream

Listening is a vital element of being a great leader…

I honestly, try to listen to the call of God…

BUT, How do I know that it is God SPEAKING??? 

Easy

One word…

FAITH

“I AM ALIVE FOR SOME REASON” – THANK YOU GOD!!!

You know, what I want to do???

SCREAM the Holy Gospel at you…

Mark 7:1-8

Defilement Comes from Within

Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes came together to Him, having come from Jerusalem. Now when[a] they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault. For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands in a special way, holding the tradition of the elders. When they come from the marketplace, they do not eat unless they wash. And there are many other things which they have received and hold, like the washing of cups, pitchers, copper vessels, and couches.

Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”

He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:

‘This people honors Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’[b]

For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men[c] —the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.”

AS I READ THIS…

I FEEL THE NEED TO WHISPER A PSALM TO YOU…

Psalm 15

The Character of Those Who May Dwell with the Lord

15 Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle?
Who may dwell in Your holy hill?

He who walks uprightly,
And works righteousness,
And speaks the truth in his heart;
He who does not backbite with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;
In whose eyes a vile person is despised,
But he honors those who fear the Lord;
He who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
He who does not put out his money at usury,
Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things shall never be moved.

🙂 🙂 🙂

I WANT SNOW.

PSALM 15

YOU MAY WHISPER…

Ephesians 1:3-6

Redemption in Christ

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

*whispers* let’s go2 that Faith In Action Committee meeting 2night…

WILL YOU READ 9.13.2017

Romans 8:24-30

24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us[a] with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

John 6:60-69

Many Disciples Turn Away

60 Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, “This is a hard saying; who can understand it?”

61 When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples complained about this, He said to them, “Does this offend you? 62 What then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before? 63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him. 65 And He said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.”

66 From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. 67 Then Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?”

68 But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”[a]

I AM GOING TO READ ON SUNDAY THE TENTH… IT WILL BE FUN… I ESPECIALLY LIKE THAT FIRST READING IN JOSHUA:

Joshua 24:14-15

14 “Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! 15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

“It was truly beautiful out”

Yesterday, while I was getting all the material prepared for this display… I ran into an old pastor of the Church I am in… I asked him how to pronounce some of the readings for Sunday for me… you know, the readings @ 8 @ HOLY TRINITY of HERSHEY…

If you can not make it, may I share with you some of my readings???

Romans 13:8-14

Love for One Another

Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet”; and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.

An Urgent Appeal

11 Besides this, you know what time it is, how it is now the moment for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we became believers; 12 the night is far gone, the day is near. Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light; 13 let us live honorably as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy. 14 Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

THANK YOU GOD FOR TOMORROW…

John 6:51-58

51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

52 The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?”

53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My flesh is food indeed,[a] and My blood is drink indeed. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.58 This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.”

THE MESSIAH ROCKS!!!

Proverbs 9:1-6

The Way of Wisdom

Wisdom has built her house,
She has hewn out her seven pillars;
She has slaughtered her meat,
She has mixed her wine,
She has also furnished her table.
She has sent out her maidens,
She cries out from the highest places of the city,
“Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!”
As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,
“Come, eat of my bread
And drink of the wine I have mixed.
Forsake foolishness and live,
And go in the way of understanding.

Reading this again, brings about the desire in my heart to share the teachings of our Lord with the world…

Romans 12:9-21

Behave Like a Christian

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. 10 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; 11 not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; 13 distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.

17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,”[a] says the Lord. 20 Therefore

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him a drink;
For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”[b]

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Twelfth Sunday After Pentecost… 8/27/2017 *push*

STRONG IN THE NAME OF THE LORD… *push*

Almighty and everlasting God, you are always more ready to hear than we are to pray, and to give more than we either desire or deserve.  Pour upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us the things of which our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things of which we are not worthy to ask, except through the merit of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

STRONG IN THE NAME OF THE LORD…

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Twelfth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

I understand, that teachers of God’s word are recommended to use scriptures depicted by a letter “a” in our “Lutheran” Hymnal…

However, this is my second year posting to this blog…

HENCE, I WILL TEACH USING SCRIPTURES DEPICTED BY A LETTER “B”…

ANYWAY…

I want to share with you the Holy Gospel written in the book of John… IT READS… 

John 6:41-51

Rejected by His Own

41 The Jews then complained about Him, because He said, “I am the bread which came down from heaven.” 42 And they said, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”

43 Jesus therefore answered and said to them, “Do not murmur among yourselves. 44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’[a] Therefore everyone who has heard and learned[b] from the Father comes to Me. 46 Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father. 47 Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me[c] has everlasting life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

WHEN I READ THIS… I GET P+SSED OFF…

P+SSED OFF THAT JESUS WAS REJECTED BY HIS OWN…

THIS NEXT STORY I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU EASES MY MIND…

(letter “b” in our Lutheran Hymnal)… IT READS

1 Kings 19:4-8

But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!”

Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an angel[a]touched him, and said to him, “Arise and eat.” Then he looked, and there by his head was a cake baked on coals, and a jar of water. So he ate and drank, and lay down again. And the angel[b] of the Lord came back the second time, and touched him, and said, “Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for you.” So he arose, and ate and drank; and he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights as far as Horeb, the mountain of God.

This story is about Elijah

AWESOME!  I can “leak”/share my speech with you… (I did not end up winning)

SPEECH #3                          SPEECH COMPETITION                 “FEAR”

My fellow Toastmasters and guests, thank you for being so encouraging and inviting. I want to speak on fear… Hopefully, you do not suffer from Phobophobia or the Fear of Fear… and you will find much comfort from my speech…

Fear is an awesome topic… Who isn’t afraid of anything??? If you, think that is you I challenge you to listen to the following phobias from I gathered from a list I came up with from searching various Lists on the internet.

Americophobia… Fear of American people and things… Right now, if you were Kim Jong-Un of North Korea you might have this phobia (Can you tell MSN News is my homepage for the internet???) smh… Nukes are on my mind and this is my first topical phobia.

Pogonophobia – Fear of growing a beard… What woman is not afraid of growing a beard??? I prefer women with smooth none hairy skin. I’ll grow my own damn beard if I want hairs in my mouth when I kiss my spouse.

Ablutophobia – Fear of being an adult… If you have ablutophobia then you had better go grab some deodorant because you are probably too scared to take a bath or clean yourself.

Nomophobia – Short for no-mobile-phone phobia, this is the constant fear of not having service and according to researchers in the UK a whopping 50% of people have it. Third world…we apologize.

(TOUCH SOMEONE)… I want to see if you have Haphephobia… Haphephobia is the fear of being touched.

I want to point out (no pun attended) that most PHOBIAs result from some long forgotten traumatic experience. That brings me to Xlyophobia.  I do have Xlyophobia… It’s the fear of wooden objects… Upon many many sleepless nights in my old wooden bed… I concluded that I have this Fear because my mom used to spank me with a wooden spoon when I was bad…

Glossophobia – The fear of public speaking. Not being able to do speeches… Nope… smh… punching the air… none hear… get that monkey off of my back…

Good thing I do not suffer from pinaciphobia or I wouldn’t share this awesome list of phobias with you… pinaciphobia is the fear of lists.

Metallophobia… I LIKE MY METALLICA AND GUNS’N’ROSES… Can you guess that fear this is the fear of metal???

I was not going to admit another fear of mine; however, since the timer did not flash the green light yet, I guess I am gonna have to share it to waste some time… LOGOPHOBIA… especially pronouncing them… BY THE WAY… LOGOPHOBIA = THE FEAR OF WORDS… AWESOME! My time is up! Thank you all for helping me conquer my Logophobia… 🙂

INTERESTING…

I want to share with you verses written by Peter (one of Jesus’s disciples)

2 Peter 1:16-21

The Trustworthy Prophetic Word

16 For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” 18 And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.

19 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed,[a] which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation,[b] 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God[c] spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

QUESTION…

IS PETER WRITING THIS METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING???

(Peter wasn’t there physically when Jesus was Baptized by John)

I want to start this post off to a good start.  WHAT BETTER WAY THAN TO SHARE WITH YOU A TEACHING FROM OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST???

John 6:24-35

24 when the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they also got into boats and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus. 25 And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, “Rabbi, when did You come here?”

26 Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27 Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”

28 Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?”

29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”

30 Therefore they said to Him, “What sign will You perform then, that we may see it and believe You? What work will You do? 31 Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”[a]

32 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.”

35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.

HEARD A COOL SERMON LAST SUNDAY ABOUT NOT TAKING THE SMALL THINGS FOR GRANTED…

(Ephesians 4:17-24)

I also want to share with you, what I was READING this morning…

Psalm 78:23-29

23 Yet He had commanded the clouds above,
And opened the doors of heaven,
24 Had rained down manna on them to eat,
And given them of the bread of heaven.
25 Men ate angels’ food;
He sent them food to the full.

26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heavens;
And by His power He brought in the south wind.
27 He also rained meat on them like the dust,
Feathered fowl like the sand of the seas;
28 And He let them fall in the midst of their camp,
All around their dwellings.
29 So they ate and were well filled,
For He gave them their own desire.

Let me Remind you of Jesus’s teaching from before… IT WILL MAKE YOU SMILE!

Like every morning, I was reading my bible… I WAS READING MY BIBLE AND TRYING TO ELIMINATE MY “UM”s on my youtube channel

ANYWAY… Here is what I was reading written in the old testament…

Isaiah 56:1-5

56 Thus says the Lord:

“Keep justice, and do righteousness,
For My salvation is about to come,
And My righteousness to be revealed.
Blessed is the man who does this,
And the son of man who lays hold on it;
Who keeps from defiling the Sabbath,
And keeps his hand from doing any evil.”

Do not let the son of the foreigner
Who has joined himself to the Lord
Speak, saying,
“The Lord has utterly separated me from His people”;
Nor let the eunuch say,
“Here I am, a dry tree.”
For thus says the Lord:
“To the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths,
And choose what pleases Me,
And hold fast My covenant,
Even to them I will give in My house
And within My walls a place and a name
Better than that of sons and daughters;
I will give them[a] an everlasting name
That shall not be cut off.

Tenth Sunday After Pentecost… 8/13/2017 *push*

Keep on Reading, Serving, Sharing, Knowing… *push*

O God, your ears are open always to the prayers of your servants.  Open our hearts and minds to you, that we may live in harmony with your will and receive the gifts of your spirit; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Keep on Reading, Serving, Sharing, Knowing…

John 6:1-15

Feeding the Five Thousand

After these things Jesus went over the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias. Then a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His signs which He performed on those who were diseased. And Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat with His disciples.

Now the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was near. Then Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?” But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.

Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little.”

One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to Him, “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?”

10 Then Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples[a] to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. 12 So when they were filled, He said to His disciples, “Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost.” 13 Therefore they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten. 14 Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, “This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world.”

15 Therefore when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone…

“One of the smaller details lost amidst the tremendous historic and scientific achievements of the Apollo 11 mission that landed the first two human beings on the moon in July 1969 was that it also marked the first occasion on which a Christian took the sacrament of Communion on an astronomical body other than Earth. This event took place in the interval between the lunar module’s landing on the moon on 20 July 1969 and Neil Armstrong’s taking his first steps on the lunar surface several hours later; during that period, astronaut Buzz Aldrin privately observed Communion using elements he had brought with him to the moon.”

1 Kings 18:41-46

The Drought Ends

41 Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.” 42 So Ahab went up to eat and drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; then he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees, 43 and said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea.”

So he went up and looked, and said, “There is nothing.” And seven times he said, “Go again.”

44 Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.’”

45 Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain. So Ahab rode away and went to Jezreel. 46 Then the hand of the Lord came upon Elijah; and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.

Ninth Sunday After Pentecost… 8/6/2017 *push*

EAT THOSE VEGETABLES… *push*

Pour out upon us, O Lord, the spirit to think and do what is right, that we, who cannot even exist without you, may have the strength to live according to your will; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

EAT THOSE VEGETABLES…*push*

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Ninth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

As a child, I have a distinct memory of my Mom force feeding sweet peas to me… They used to make me gag… NOT ANYMORE… I HAD SWEET PEAS ON MY SALAD FOR LUNCH… I LOVED IT…

fear of vegetables

Although at first I rejected this food that I thought was wrong for me… Later… I discovered, I liked the benefits that eating sweet peas gave me.

  1. Peas are free of cholesterol and low in fat and sodium. They feed your muscles and brain.
  2. A cup of cooked green peas has 3.6 milligrams of lutein, an antioxidant nutrient that helps keep the cells in your eyes healthy. (Prevents vision loss as you age)
  3. Peas benefit your immune system with antioxidant vitamins, especially if you eat them raw. 
  4. A cup of cooked or raw peas provides nearly 2 milligrams of zinc, an antioxidant mineral that promotes wound healing.

Eating my vegetables seems to be right…

Do you know what accompanies vegetables extremely well???

It is also considered very healthy for you…(FISH)…

Can I share with you a story that comes to mind when I think of fish???

Mark 6:30-34

Feeding the Five Thousand

30 Then the apostles gathered to Jesus and told Him all things, both what they had done and what they had taught. 31 And He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat. 32 So they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves.

33 But the multitudes[a] saw them departing, and many knew Him and ran there on foot from all the cities. They arrived before them and came together to Him. 34 And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things.

If you were to read on…

You would discover Jesus feeding thousands of people with 5 loaves of bread and two fish…

THE PEOPLE ATE THE FISH…

If you read on…

42 So they all ate and were filled. 43 And they took up twelve baskets full of fragments and of the fish.

It is RIGHT…

EAT THAT FISH…

In addition,

EAT THOSE VEGETABLES…

Lachanophobia… WHAT?!?!?!

Psalm 23

The Lord the Shepherd of His People

23 The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

And his fame spread to all the surrounding nations. 32 He spoke three thousand proverbs and his songs numbered a thousand and five. 33 He spoke about plant life, from the cedar of Lebanon to the hyssop that grows out of walls. He also spoke about animals and birds, reptiles and fish. 34 From all nations people came to listen to Solomon’s wisdom, sent by all the kings of the world, who had heard of his wisdom.

An Invitation to Abundant Life

55 “Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat.
Yes, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.
Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
Incline your ear, and come to Me.
Hear, and your soul shall live;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with you—
The sure mercies of David.
Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people,
A leader and commander for the people.
Surely you shall call a nation you do not know,
And nations who do not know you shall run to you,
Because of the Lord your God,
And the Holy One of Israel;
For He has glorified you.”

Eighth Sunday After Pentecost… 7/30/2017 *push*

Hi… *push*

Lord God, use our lives to touch the world with your love.  Stir us, by your Spirit, to be neighbor to those in need, serving them with willing hearts; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Hi…

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Eighth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

Our relationships are built on solid ground and can start with a simple “Hi”… I find this statement becoming more and more true to me the older I get… It’s awesome to find individuals with the same values as yourself.  Just awesome! I know that I want to treat everyone how I want to be treated… THE GOLDEN RULE ROCKS!

hi-love-quote-start-Favim.com-658946

This week, I want to share with you a story of when Jesus sent out His disciples into the world… I shared with you this testimony in the book of Matthew last week… This week, I want to share it with you written in the book of Mark.

Mark 6:7-13

Sending Out the Twelve

And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits. He commanded them to take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bag, no bread, no copper in their money belts— but to wear sandals, and not to put on two tunics.

10 Also He said to them, “In whatever place you enter a house, stay there till you depart from that place. 11 And whoever[a] will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them.[b] Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!”

12 So they went out and preached that people should repent. 13 And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.

Hi…

hot dogs

Ephesians 1:3-14

Redemption in Christ

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, 10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both[a] which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. 11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12 that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.

13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who[b] is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.

I woke up this morning and opened up “The Word of Seasons” – a publication of Lutheran Pastors for inspiration for me to share with you on my slideshare.net account… Well, the scripture in 1 Kings and the scripture written in Matthew would be confusing to some Christians… HENCE… I MADE MY POWERPOINT WITH PROVERBS 11 (Reading Proverbs is how I began my walk with Christ)

Thank you 7.29.2017

Proverbs 11 The Message (MSG)

Without Good Direction, People Lose Their Way

11 God hates cheating in the marketplace;
he loves it when business is aboveboard.

The stuck-up fall flat on their faces,
but down-to-earth people stand firm.

The integrity of the honest keeps them on track;
the deviousness of crooks brings them to ruin.

A thick bankroll is no help when life falls apart,
but a principled life can stand up to the worst.

Moral character makes for smooth traveling;
an evil life is a hard life.

Good character is the best insurance;
crooks get trapped in their sinful lust.

When the wicked die, that’s it—
the story’s over, end of hope.

A good person is saved from much trouble;
a bad person runs straight into it.

The loose tongue of the godless spreads destruction;
the common sense of the godly preserves them.

10 When it goes well for good people, the whole town cheers;
when it goes badly for bad people, the town celebrates.

11 When right-living people bless the city, it flourishes;
evil talk turns it into a ghost town in no time.

12 Mean-spirited slander is heartless;
quiet discretion accompanies good sense.

13 A gadabout gossip can’t be trusted with a secret,
but someone of integrity won’t violate a confidence.

14 Without good direction, people lose their way;
the more wise counsel you follow, the better your chances.

15 Whoever makes deals with strangers is sure to get burned;
if you keep a cool head, you’ll avoid rash bargains.

16 A woman of gentle grace gets respect,
but men of rough violence grab for loot.

LONG… BUT, AWESOME!!!

A God-Shaped Life

17 When you’re kind to others, you help yourself;
when you’re cruel to others, you hurt yourself.

18 Bad work gets paid with a bad check;
good work gets solid pay.

19 Take your stand with God’s loyal community and live,
or chase after phantoms of evil and die.

20 God can’t stand deceivers,
but oh how he relishes integrity.

21 Count on this: The wicked won’t get off scot-free,
and God’s loyal people will triumph.

22 Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout
is a beautiful face on an empty head.

23 The desires of good people lead straight to the best,
but wicked ambition ends in angry frustration.

24 The world of the generous gets larger and larger;
the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller.

25 The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed;
those who help others are helped.

26 Curses on those who drive a hard bargain!
Blessings on all who play fair and square!

27 The one who seeks good finds delight;
the student of evil becomes evil.

28 A life devoted to things is a dead life, a stump;
a God-shaped life is a flourishing tree.

29 Exploit or abuse your family, and end up with a fistful of air;
common sense tells you it’s a stupid way to live.

30 A good life is a fruit-bearing tree;
a violent life destroys souls.

31 If good people barely make it,
what’s in store for the bad!

Week of Eighth Sunday After Pentecost… 7/30/2017 *push*

Hi… *push*

Lord God, use our lives to touch the world with your love.  Stir us, by your Spirit, to be neighbor to those in need, serving them with willing hearts; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Hi…

Our relationships are built on solid ground and can start with a simple “Hi”… I find this statement becoming more and more true to me the older I get… It’s awesome to find individuals with the same values as yourself.  Just awesome! I know that I want to treat everyone how I want to be treated… THE GOLDEN RULE ROCKS!

hi-love-quote-start-Favim.com-658946

This week, I want to share with you a story of when Jesus sent out His disciples into the world… I shared with you this testimony in the book of Matthew last week… This week, I want to share it with you written in the book of Mark.

Mark 6:7-13

Sending Out the Twelve

And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits. He commanded them to take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bag, no bread, no copper in their money belts— but to wear sandals, and not to put on two tunics.

10 Also He said to them, “In whatever place you enter a house, stay there till you depart from that place. 11 And whoever[a] will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them.[b] Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!”

12 So they went out and preached that people should repent. 13 And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.

Hi…

hot dogs

Ephesians 1:3-14

Redemption in Christ

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, 10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both[a] which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. 11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12 that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.

13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who[b] is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.

Seventh Sunday After Pentecost… 7/23/2017 *push*

LET’s GO!!! *push*

God of glory, Father of love, peace comes from you alone.  Send us peacemakers and witnesses to your kingdom, and fill our hearts with joy in your promises of salvation; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

I love these prayers before each entry…THEY ARE AWESOME!!!

I want to start this entry by encouraging you to keep reading, learning, and applying God’s Word into your daily everyday life… DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO NAYSAYERS…

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Seventh Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

LET’s GO!!!

May I share with you the Holy Gospel written in the book of Mark???

Mark 6:1-6

Jesus Rejected at Nazareth

Then He went out from there and came to His own country, and His disciples followed Him. And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands! Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?” So they were offended at Him.

But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.

LET’s GO!!!

I would also like to share with you what I was reading this morning before I went to greet people at my church… THIS WEEK I AM READING…

Matthew 10:5-12

Sending Out the Twelve

These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans.But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead,[a] cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. Provide neither gold nor silver nor copper in your money belts, 10 nor bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staffs; for a worker is worthy of his food.

11 “Now whatever city or town you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and stay there till you go out. 12 And when you go into a household, greet it.

PAY NO ATTENTION TO NAYSAYERS…

7/22/2017

I promised to share with you some of the readings (lessons) I will be reading to the congregation in my church.  I try to follow through on my promises so…

(PUSH for AUDIO)

Romans 8:12-25

12 So then, brothers and sisters,[a] we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh— 13 for if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. 15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. When we cry, “Abba![b] Father!” 16 it is that very Spirit bearing witness[c] with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ—if, in fact, we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.

(PUSH for AUDIO)

Future Glory

18 I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; 20 for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning in labor pains until now; 23 and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly while we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in[d] hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes[e] for what is seen? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOU FOR THE OTHER readings (lessons)…

After church, I am going to practice my speech for Toastmasters “LIFE, KNOWLEDGE, & INSURANCE”…

Sixth Sunday After Pentecost… 7/16/2017 *push*

FAITHFULLY REACH’n… (hear that knocking???) *push*

O God, you have prepared for those who love you joys beyond understanding.  Pour into our hearts such love for you that, loving you above all things, we may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

FAITHFULLY REACH’n… (hear that knocking???)

Hey… I want to share with you some scriptures (readings) that are dictated to use for this week’s Sixth Sunday After Pentecost… These scriptures are used in a common lecture nary used by many divisions of Christianity… Since, this is my second year posting on this blog…

I WILL USE THE SCRIPTURES SUGGESTED TO USE IN YEAR 2 (b); EVENTHOUGH, MOST CHURCHS ARE ON YEAR 1…

IT IS WHAT, IT IS…

I first want to share with you the suggested reading found in Lamentations…

Lamentations 3:22-33

22 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”

25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him.
26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly
For the salvation of the Lord.
27 It is good for a man to bear
The yoke in his youth.

28 Let him sit alone and keep silent,
Because God has laid it on him;
29 Let him put his mouth in the dust—
There may yet be hope.
30 Let him give his cheek to the one who strikes him,
And be full of reproach.

31 For the Lord will not cast off forever.
32 Though He causes grief,
Yet He will show compassion
According to the multitude of His mercies.
33 For He does not afflict willingly,
Nor grieve the children of men.

The Holy Gospel I am supposed to share is written in Matthew

HOWEVER… I AM GOING TO FAITHFULLY REACH FOR MY BIBLE AND SHARE WITH YOU THE HOLY GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MARK

Mark 5:25-34

25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. 28 For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”

29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”

31 But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”

32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. 33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. 34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”

THANK YOU GOD THAT I HAVE HEARD ABOUT JESUS…

(hear that knocking???)

I will keep on FAITHFULLY REACH’n 🙂

Thank you 7.15.2017

James 1:21-26

Doers—Not Hearers Only

21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

26 If anyone among you[a] thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless.

Fifth Sunday After Pentecost… 7/9/2017 *push*

KEEP’n FOCUSED… *push*

O God our defender, storms rage about us and cause us to be afraid.  Rescue your people from despair, deliver your sons and daughters from fear, and preserve us all from unbelief; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

KEEP’n FOCUSED…

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Fifth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

The scriptures I want to share with you these week are awesome…  They remind us that no matter what kind of storm we are in to keep the faith… whether the storms are being hungry, broke, disappointed, or heartbroken… THEY CAN’T LAST FOREVER

Let me share with you a writing in the Holy Gospel…

Mark 4:35-41

Wind and Wave Obey Jesus

35 On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” 36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”

39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40 But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?”[a]41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”

KEEP’n FOCUSED…

Do you know King David wrote most of the Psalms???

Psalm 107:1-3

Thanksgiving to the Lord for His Great Works of Deliverance

107 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,
And gathered out of the lands,
From the east and from the west,
From the north and from the south.

Psalm 107:23-32

23 Those who go down to the sea in ships,
Who do business on great waters,
24 They see the works of the Lord,
And His wonders in the deep.
25 For He commands and raises the stormy wind,
Which lifts up the waves of the sea.
26 They mount up to the heavens,
They go down again to the depths;
Their soul melts because of trouble.
27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,
And are at their wits’ end.
28 Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He brings them out of their distresses.
29 He calms the storm,
So that its waves are still.
30 Then they are glad because they are quiet;
So He guides them to their desired haven.
31 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
32 Let them exalt Him also in the assembly of the people,
And praise Him in the company of the elders.

INTERESTING… (i will keep focused)

2 Corinthians 12:7-10

The Thorn in the Flesh

And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Week of Fifth Sunday After Pentecost… 7/9/2017 *push*

KEEP’n FOCUSED… *push*

O God our defender, storms rage about us and cause us to be afraid.  Rescue your people from despair, deliver your sons and daughters from fear, and preserve us all from unbelief; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

KEEP’n FOCUSED…

The scriptures I want to share with you these week are awesome…  They remind us that no matter what kind of storm we are in to keep the faith… whether the storms are being hungry, broke, disappointed, or heartbroken… THEY CAN’T LAST FOREVER

broke

Let me share with you a writing in the Holy Gospel…

Mark 4:35-41

Wind and Wave Obey Jesus

35 On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” 36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”

39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40 But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?”[a]41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”

KEEP’n FOCUSED…

Do you know King David wrote most of the Psalms???

PSALM 107

Psalm 107:1-3

Thanksgiving to the Lord for His Great Works of Deliverance

107 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,
And gathered out of the lands,
From the east and from the west,
From the north and from the south.

Psalm 107:23-32

23 Those who go down to the sea in ships,
Who do business on great waters,
24 They see the works of the Lord,
And His wonders in the deep.
25 For He commands and raises the stormy wind,
Which lifts up the waves of the sea.
26 They mount up to the heavens,
They go down again to the depths;
Their soul melts because of trouble.
27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,
And are at their wits’ end.
28 Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He brings them out of their distresses.
29 He calms the storm,
So that its waves are still.
30 Then they are glad because they are quiet;
So He guides them to their desired haven.
31 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
32 Let them exalt Him also in the assembly of the people,
And praise Him in the company of the elders.

Fourth Sunday After Pentecost… 7/2/2017 *push*

KNOWING YOUR AUDIENCE… *push*

God, our maker and redeemer, you have made us a new company of priests to bear witness to the Gospel.  Enable us to be faithful to our calling to make known your promises to all the world; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

KNOWING YOUR AUDIENCE…

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Fourth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

Today, I want to share with you wisdom that I obtained throughout life… I took Public Speaking at Arizona State and now I am in Toastmasters… A common theme I am noticing is knowing your audience… that is believed to be a critical part when relaying a message…

I believe Jesus knew this…

THAT BRINGS ME TO THE HOLY GOSPEL THAT I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU…

Mark 4:26-34

The Parable of the Growing Seed

26 And He said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, 27 and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. 28 For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. 29 But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”

The Parable of the Mustard Seed

30 Then He said, “To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? Or with what parable shall we picture it? 31 It is like a mustard seed which, when it is sown on the ground, is smaller than all the seeds on earth; 32 but when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out large branches, so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade.”

Jesus’ Use of Parables

33 And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it. 34 But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples.

Psalm 100

A Song of Praise for the Lord’s Faithfulness to His People

A Psalm of Thanksgiving.

Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;[a]
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

The Lord’s Goodness to the Faithful

A PSALM OF DAVID.

138 I will praise You with my whole heart;
Before the gods I will sing praises to You.
I will worship toward Your holy temple,
And praise Your name
For Your lovingkindness and Your truth;
For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.
In the day when I cried out, You answered me,
And made me bold with strength in my soul.

All the kings of the earth shall praise You, O Lord,
When they hear the words of Your mouth.
Yes, they shall sing of the ways of the Lord,
For great is the glory of the Lord.
Though the Lord is on high,
Yet He regards the lowly;
But the proud He knows from afar.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me;
You will stretch out Your hand
Against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me.
The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

I want to share with you what I was reading this morning…

Romans 12:3-9

Serve God with Spiritual Gifts

For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.

Behave Like a Christian

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.

O God, the strength of those who hope in you: Be present and hear our prayers; and, because in the weakness of our mortal nature we can do nothing good without you, give us the help of your grace, so that in keeping your commandments we may please you in will and deed; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

I AM CURIOUS… Why don’t they have one life insurance agent??? (IT IS LIFE INSURANCE)

May I share with you assurance of my eternal life (not life on earth)??? It is the belief in the WORDS and TESTIMONY of our Lord Jesus Christ written in the book of Mark… IT READS…

Mark 3:20-35

A House Divided Cannot Stand

20 Then the multitude came together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. 21 But when His own people heard about this, they went out to lay hold of Him, for they said, “He is out of His mind.”

22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebub,” and, “By the ruler of the demons He casts out demons.”

23 So He called them to Himself and said to them in parables: “How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan has risen up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. 27 No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.

The Unpardonable Sin

28 “Assuredly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may utter; 29 but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation”— 30 because they said, “He has an unclean spirit.”

Jesus’ Mother and Brothers Send for Him

31 Then His brothers and His mother came, and standing outside they sent to Him, calling Him. 32 And a multitude was sitting around Him; and they said to Him, “Look, Your mother and Your brothers[a] are outside seeking You.”

33 But He answered them, saying, “Who is My mother, or My brothers?”34 And He looked around in a circle at those who sat about Him, and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! 35 For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and mother.”

STARTED MY SPEECH FOR TOASTMASTERS BEFORE CALLING PEOPLE FOR MEETINGS THIS WEEKEND…

Toastmasters: 

Attitude is a decision… First of all, I would like to thank all of my fellow toastmasters for being encouraging and inviting… Thank you.

Hi! I want to tell you a little about myself… I hope you will be receptive to my speech and please if you see an area in my speech in where I can improve… tell me… life is all about learning to me and I appreciate your constructive criticism.

WITH THAT SAID… I WANT TO TELL YOU A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF…

I could go on for hours on this subject; however, for tonight’s speech I plan on sharing with you three snap shots in my life… These experiences shaped me to be the man I AM… Life has given me a lot of lemons… but I think lemonade tastes great! (LET’s BEGIN)

2200 miles away from home…

That’s right… I went to Arizona State University after I graduated from Hershey High in 1996… I wanted to see a new part of this awesome country… 2200 miles away… I saw and learned…

I was going for an undergraduate degree in international business… In an instant, the plan, I had, for my life changed.  I was involved in a near fatal car accident 17 years ago… I had to relearn, how to talk, walk, swallow food… you know just about everything we take for granted…

My plan changed… what was going to be an Undergraduate Degree at Arizona State in International Business blossomed into a Graduate Degree in Business Administration from Penn State… THAT’s RIGHT… I finished my Undergraduate Degree and moved onto my Master’s Degree…

Isaiah 40:31

But those who wait on the Lord

Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

“LEMONADE TASTES GREAT!!!”

6/24/2017

I am going to read tomorrow @ my church…

HERE IS HALF OF THE WISDOM…

Romans 6:1-11

Dead to Sin, Alive to God

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

YOU ARE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO SHOW UP TO HEAR THE OTHER HALF…

HOPE to see you THERE!!!

I want to be obedient to our Lord Jesus Christ… MAY I SHARE WITH YOU A TEACHING BY HIM WRITTEN IN THE NEW TESTAMENT OF OUR HOLY BIBLE???

Mark 2:23-28

Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath

23 Now it happened that He went through the grainfields on the Sabbath; and as they went His disciples began to pluck the heads of grain. 24 And the Pharisees said to Him, “Look, why do they do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?”

25 But He said to them, “Have you never read what David did when he was in need and hungry, he and those with him: 26 how he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the showbread, which is not lawful to eat except for the priests, and also gave some to those who were with him?”

27 And He said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. 28 Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath.”

THAT LONG READING I SPOKE LAST SUNDAY TELLS HOW THINGS WERE CREATED FOR MAN TO HAVE DOMINION OVER… Is this what Jesus means???

Genesis 1:26-28

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[a] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

I THOUGHT GOD CREATED THE SABBATH FOR Him to rest…

Genesis 2:2-3

And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

THANK YOU LORD GOD…

(I think the Sabbath can be any day of the damn week you choose… I might be confusing the Sabbath… THE SABBATH DOES NOT HAVE TO BE SUNDAY)

Let’s Go Workout…

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Second Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

6/14/2017 – I HAD A REAL INTERESTING MEETING AT TOASTMASTERS

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our organization has more than 345,000 memberships. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 15,900 clubs in 142 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.
