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.


(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!


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.

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.

(PSALM 100)




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.




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!
