NOT WALKING… (want to run with me?) *push*

O God, you know that we cannot withstand the dangers which surround us.  Strengthen us in body and spirit so that, with your help, we may be able to overcome the weaknesses that our sins has brought upon us; through Jesus Christ, your Son our Lord.

NOT WALKING… (want to run with me?)

The Sermon I heard from my pastor got me fired up… She was talking about the divisions of church.  I tend to agree with my brother Paul in his Letter to Corinth (1 Corinthians 1:10-17).  We are all called children of God and have the Love of Jesus in us… as children of God we should Be like Jesus.  That brings me to what I want to share with you today…

Matthew 5:1-12

The Beatitudes

And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    For they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    For they shall be called sons of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

*Please take note* A lot of this text is RED… These are the words of Jesus… Christ Jesus was an AWESOME teacher and an AWESOME example for us to BE like…

IT’s funny… on my way to church to hear about divisions in church I passed this church sign posted by Middletown Road

It so happens that this is paraphrased from the First Lesson that will be read this week…

Micah 6:1-8

Hear now what the Lord says:

“Arise, plead your case before the mountains,
And let the hills hear your voice.
Hear, O you mountains, the Lord’s complaint,
And you strong foundations of the earth;
For the Lord has a complaint against His people,
And He will contend with Israel.

“O My people, what have I done to you?
And how have I wearied you?
Testify against Me.
For I brought you up from the land of Egypt,
I redeemed you from the house of bondage;
And I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.
O My people, remember now
What Balak king of Moab counseled,
And what Balaam the son of Beor answered him,
From Acacia Grove to Gilgal,
That you may know the righteousness of the Lord.”

With what shall I come before the Lord,
And bow myself before the High God?
Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings,
With calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
Ten thousand rivers of oil?
Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?

*PAY ATTENTION TO THE LAST VERSE*

1/24/2017 – “FEEL”

LOL… TODAY… I “FEEL” THE NEED TO SHARE WITH YOU A PART OF A PSALM WRITTEN IN THE OLD TESTAMENT OF OUR HOLY BIBLE… IT READS…

Psalm 138

I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
    before the “gods” I will sing your praise.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
    and will praise your name
    for your unfailing love and your faithfulness,
for you have so exalted your solemn decree
    that it surpasses your fame.
When I called, you answered me;
    you greatly emboldened me.

May all the kings of the earth praise you, Lord,
    when they hear what you have decreed.
May they sing of the ways of the Lord,
    for the glory of the Lord is great.
