Stir up your power, O Lord, and come. Take away the hindrance of our sins and make us ready for the celebration of your birth, that we may receive you in joy and serve you always; for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, now and forever.

I went to a Catholic Church Service this morning before my Sunday School Class and Lutheran Church Service…

I thought that all these church services would bring me closer to God… HOWEVER, that is not what transpired… WHAT I WANT is not what WE NEED…

want-vs-need

One beautiful thing, I did witness today is the sharing of God’s word…

MAY I SHARE IT WITH YOU???

Romans 16:25-27 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Final Doxology

25 Now to God[a] who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages 26 but is now disclosed, and through the prophetic writings is made known to all the Gentiles, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith— 27 to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, to whom[b] be the glory forever! Amen.[c]

READING THIS SCRIPTURE MAKES ME WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU THE HOLY GOSPEL WRITTEN IN LUKE.

Luke 1:26-38 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

The Birth of Jesus Foretold

26 In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, 27 to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And he came to her and said, “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you.”[a]29 But she was much perplexed by his words and pondered what sort of greeting this might be. 30 The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And now, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you will name him Jesus. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his ancestor David. 33 He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.” 34 Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?”[b35 The angel said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born[c] will be holy; he will be called Son of God. 36 And now, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son; and this is the sixth month for her who was said to be barren. 37 For nothing will be impossible with God.” 38 Then Mary said, “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.” Then the angel departed from her.

LET’s see how well I ADAPT…

My computer decided to quit working this morning… I love sharing the WORD on my youtube channel with you… however… I NEED TO ADAPT…

(Damn Machine)… I KNOW, THAT WASN’T VERY GRACEFUL…

I think, I have time before I go2 Lancaster (giving my 7th speech on Life Insurance) to share with you what I read this morning…

 

Mark 8:34-38New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

34 He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 35 For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel,[a] will save it. 36 For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? 37 Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? 38 Those who are ashamed of me and of my words[b] in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

I had an extremely good workout this morning… I was merging on the highway and the car in-front of me came to a sudden stop… on the highway ramp… 

Well there was a truck tailing me… Fortunately, I avoided a Christmas Car Accident and went off the highway onto the grass…  I took my frustration out at the GYM this morning… IT WAS AN AWESOME WORKOUT!!!

May I share with you some scripture I was reading before my highway adventure?

1 John 3:1-3 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he[a] is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. And all who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
