A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, September 27, 2010

Aloha Everyone! We thank each of you who respond to the daily prayers and messages, and trust that the rest of you are being strengthened and encouraged by them. Now todays prayer and message:

"Heanely Father, glorious God, help us to lift up holy hands in prayers to you, without anger or dispute, but in a spirit of unity. Help us to find true believers who will stand with us in prayer, in worship, and in devotion to you. Create godly prayer partners in our lives so we can pray in power. Enable us to be so devoted to you that we will maintain a oneness of the Spirit. Help us to set aside our differences and opnions, and be one in Christ Jesus, our Lord, and towards one another. Help us to be unified in our belief in your Word, so we can be unified also in our prayers. Bless us Father, for we ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen!"

We have seen thus far, our part (Man's Part) in response to God's gift to us, our salvation: Hearing; Believing; Repenting; and Obeying. Now let's look at CONFESSION!

Romans 10:9-10 tells us that with the heart man believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Note that faith alone is not enough. Here is a physical act that must be done with the mouth to be saved....One Must Confess. To deny we need not do anything to be saved is to deny the Word of God that we need to confess. What is it that we must CONFESS? We will look at other scriptures on this topic next time. May God bless each of you today with his love, grace and mercy, Vic.

A Saturday Morning Prayer!

Saturday, September 25, 2010

Loving Father, how can we measure greatness, except by your standards? You have given us the greastest commandment of all, to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love one another as we love ourselves. We witness daily powerful results in our lives when we obey these two commandments, and we are amazed! Yet it is a simple command, one that is easy to obey, and all too often we fall short of reaching that goal. Help us to keep focus on You and guide us daily to be all that we can be for your service. This we pray and ask in Jesus' nmae, Amen! May God Bless each of you this weekend, In His Love, Vic.

    Thankyou for those Godly words today. I needed them as I will be hosting our 38th annual handicapped dinner and need to remember to love each and every person that I meet with the love of Jesus. I will NEED to see them through God's eyes. I will be repeating that today, and I WILL NEED IT!! emoticon

A Friday Morning Message!

Friday, September 24, 2010

Gooooooooood Morning Everyone! Let's look at more passages about man's part in OBEDIENCE to God's Word.

Jesus tells us in Matt 7:21-23, that not everyone that says unto him," Lord, Lord", shall enter the kingdom of heaven; but only those who do the WILL of the Father. Some will say, "Have we not prophesied in your name? Cast out demons? And done many wonderful works?" And Jesus will answer them sadly, "I never knew you because you did not obey my words; depart from me". Oh how sad it will be that day, to have believed but not obeyed. In Luke 6:46, Jesus said, "And why call me Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say". To hear what Jesus teaches and not obey it is as foolish as building a house with no thought for its foundation (Matt 7:24-27). May God's blessing of Understanding be upon each of you today, God bless, Vic.

A Friday Morning Prayer!

Friday, September 24, 2010

Merciful and Loving Father, we know that there are people out there that are waiting to hear the good news concerning eternal life and living life now. Use us to bring the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ to them. Let us pray for them; let us pray that the message of salvation may spread rapidly; let us pray that the good news may be honored by them as it was honored by us. Just as you have used others powerfully in our lives, equip us with the right words at the right time so those who hear and believe and whose hearts are ready may be drawn to Jesus. We pray for both men and women who are ready to hear and obey the good news. We pray that their hearts will be open to receive all that you have for them. This we ask in Jesus' name, Amen! May all be blessed this day with the Good News; God bless, Vic.

A Thursday Morning Message!

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Aloha Everyone! Thusfar, we have seen what the Bible says about man's part in salvation, concerning Hearing, Believing and Repentance. Now let's look at man's part in Obedience to God's Word.

In order to be forgiven, we must follow through on our repentance by doing what God says. May people agree with everything up to this point but fail to do what God says. Let's note what the Bible has to say:
1. Heb 5:9 - Jesus is the author of eternal salvation to all who OBEY Him.
2. Rom 6:17-18 - When we OBEY from the heart the teaching delivered (The Gospel of Christ), we are made free from sin.
3. 1 Pet 1:22 - We purify our souls in OBEYING the truth, and God's word is truth (John 17:17).
4. Acts 10:34-35 - Whoever fears (Respeccts) God and works (Does, Obey) righteousness, is accepted by Him.
It is simply not true that nothing man does is necessary to salvation. We'll look at some more passages tomorrow. To be continued! May the blessings of heaven be upon each of you today, Vic.

    It is very important that we hold each other accountable. It is so easy to talk the talk, but forget to walk the walk.
