A Friday Morning Prayer and Message!

Friday, November 26, 2010

Gooooooooooooooood Morning Team Members! We trust everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! We did!

"Heavenly Father, God of the Universe! Hear us when we call, O God of our righteousness. You have given us relief when we were in distress; Have mercy on us and hear our prayer. The sons of men, the ungodly, turn your glory to shame; they love vanity and seek after falsehoods. They have no part in your kingdom. But we know You have set us, the godly, apart for yourself, and you hear us when we pray. We stand in awe of You and sin not. We commune with our hearts upon the bed and we are still. We sleep and awake because your love sustains us. We offer sacrifices of righteousness unto You and put our trust in You. You lift up the light of your countenance upon us and we are blessed; our hearts rejoice with gladness. We sleep in peace and we walk and live by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We praise You our God and we give thanks and glory and honor to You. This we pray in Jesus' name, Amen!"


The Bible has answered the first question: Does God prohibit certain conducts, either in general or specific terms, which causes us to be immoral instead of moral? The answer is YES!
Noe let's turn our attention to the second question: Will these conducts be good stewardship? What is good stewardship? 1 Pet 4:10-11 teaches us that when we receive gifts from God and minister them to others to the manifold grace of God, then we are good stewards. Whatever we speak, let us speak as the oracles of God. Whatever we do (minister), let us minister as of the abilities which God gives, so that God may be glorified in ALL THINGS. The question then becomes: "What has God given us that we should use and care for?" We will look at some scriptures on Monday. Have a wonderful weekend! Keep safe! Keep Dry! And keep warm! See you again Monday. In His Love, Vic.

    Somehow I missed this on Friday, but reading it now really has me thinking. During the holidays, but all of the time as well, we should be good stewards.

A Tuesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Aloha Team Members! We are preparing for Thanksgiving! Praise the Lord!


"Loving Father, Gracious God, May we proclaim with the voice of Thanksgiving, and tell the world of all thy wondrous works. Let us therefore give thanks today: For the sun that shines in May, for the budding cherry trees, for the greening of the country leaves; For the summer's lovely golden stay, for the daisies wild in the meadows green, for the garden squash and climbing beans; For the Autumn's beauty in it's stay, for sumac red and scarlet elms, for nature in it's vibrant realm; For Winter's beauty at bay, the warmth of home at fireside, for crystal scenes of acres white. Let us give thanks today for every season's special way, and know that we are truly blessed, from north to south, from east to west. Your gifts to us are very precious, O Lord. Help us to keep them always in our hearts. This we pray this morning in Jesus' name, Amen!"


The Question: Continued From Yesterday!
I. James 3:13-18 - True wisdom and false wisdom. Read verses 13 thru 18. The knowledge of those who live moral lives comes from God: It is pure, peaceable, gentle, full of mercy and good fruits. The knowledge of those who live immoral lives comes from the world: it is envy, strife, confusion and evil works. Where do you stand today?
J. James 4:1-10 - Worldliness against Heavenly Wisdom. Read verses 1 thru 10. Let us humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift us up. God resist the proud but gives grace to the humble. Has God lifted you up?
K. 1 Pet 4:1-4 - Those who live moral lives are good stewards of God's grace. Read verse 1 thru 4. We should no longer live in the flesh to the lust of men, but to the will of God. The immoral people think it strange that the moral people do not run with them. With whom do you run?

May God's blessings bring joy to you, your families and friends, as you prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving. In His Love, Vic.

A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, November 22, 2010

Goooooooooooooood Morning Team Members! Wonderful weekend! Give God all the Glory and Praise!

"Heavenly Father, Glorious God, Your Word is the blueprint for yesterday, today and the future. It is a gift for all generations. Thank you for your Word. Thank You for Jesus who brought us the Word. Thank You for every blessing and grace in Christ Jesus. Empower us to spread the Gospel of our Lord and tell the world the "Good News". This we pray in jesus' name, Amen!"


The Question: Continued From Friday!
G. 1 Tim 3:1-7 - In the last days perilious times will come. The perilious times indicate that apostacy will characterize the final days. That time began with the birth of Christ and will end when Jesus returns. Look at what the Immoral will be doing: Read vs 2-7).
H. Titus 3:3-7 - Here we see the foolishness of the immoral and the blessings for the morals. Read vs 3-7. Through the works of the Holy Spirit, the morals will be made "Heirs" of salvation and eternal life.
I. To Be Continued Tomorrow!
May each of you be blessed to day as you become "Heirs" of salvation and erternal life. In His Love, Vic.

A Saturday Morning Prayer!

Saturday, November 20, 2010

Gracious Father, Loving God, thank you for allowing us to come into your orchard, where we can dwell and savor the fragrances of your flowers andthe fruits that grow therein. We know that to dwell in your orchard, we must also bear good fruits, and those that do not bear good fruit will be removed. Thank you Father for Jesus, for speaking on our behalf, who give us opportunities to repent and become fruitful. Thank you for Jesus who helps us to grow and be fruitful. He is the vine and we are his branches. Help us then to bear fruits of righteousness, joy and peace. This we pray and ask in Jesus' name, Amen!"
