A Saturday Morning Christmas Hymn!

Saturday, December 18, 2010

Title: It Came Upon The Midnight Clear

1. It came upon the midnight clear, that glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth to touch their harps of gold;
Peace on the earth, good-will to men, from heav'n's gracious King;
The world in solemn stillness lay, to hear the angels sing.

2. Still thru the cloven skies they come, with peaceful wings unfurled;
And still their heav'nly music floats, O'er all the weary world;
Above it's sad and lowly plains, they bend on hovering wing,
And ever over the Babel sounds, the blessed angels sing.

3. Yet with the woes of sin and strife, the world has suffered long;
Beneath the angel-strain have rolled, two thousand years of wrong;
And men, at war with men, hear not the love-song which they bring,
O hush the noise, ye men of strife, and hear the angels sing.

4. For lo! The days are hastening on, By prophets seen of old,
When with the ever-circling years, shall come the time foretold;
When with the heav'n and earth shall own, The Prince of Peace their King,
And the whole world send back the song, which now the angels sing.

Merry Xmas Everyone, and Have a great weekend! God Bless, Vic.

A Friday Morning Prayerful Hymn and Message!

Friday, December 17, 2010

Aloha Team Members! Merry Xmas! Winter is in the air and good cheers in our hearts....Praise God!

Title: Dear Lord and Father of Mankind

1. Dear Lord, and Father of mankind, forgive our foolish ways; Reclothe us in our rightful mind, in purer lives, thy service find, in deeper reverence praise.

2. In simple trust like thiers who heard, beside the Syrian sea; The gracious calling of the Lord, let us like them, without a word, rise up and follow thee.

4. Drop thy still dews of quietness, till all our strivings cease; Take from our souls the strain and stress, and let our ordered lives confess, the beauty of thy peace.


When we understand that even our bodies and souls belong to the Lord, we need to ask next, this question: How should our bodies be used?
1. 3 John, verses 2 and 3 - John prays that all may prosper and be in health, even as our soul prosper, by walking in the truth. So we need to walk in truth also if we are to be in good health physically and spiritually.
2. Ron 12:2-3 - Paul makes three important points here on how we should use our bodies:
a. Present you bodies to God as "Living Sacrifices: instead of "Dead Sacrifices". Our body is an instrument of sin. We need to present our body to God so that God's righteousness can be made known.
b. How? By not conforming to the pattern of the this world. We are to resist being poured into a mold of present things, whose values and conduct are unacceptable to God.
c. How? Let us be transformed by the renewing of our mind to the pattern of the world to come in eternity. Unless we make that transfornation here and now, we shall not enter the world God has prepared for his people in eternity.
3. This is something to think about! We can destroy and abuse the gifts of our body and soul to please others, but that makes us impure.
4. Monday we will look at the effects of our examples as we entertain a new question.
Merry Xmas Everyone! Have a wonderful weekend. In His Love, Vic.

A Thursday Morning Prayerful Hymn and Message!

Thursday, December 16, 2010

Merry Xmas Team Members! What a blessing and joy it is to share God's Word with you daily....Give God all the glory!

Prayerful hymn created by me in 1985: "Teach Me!"

1. Teach me to love, Father like you; teach me to love, a love pure and true.
Teach me to love, sinners like me; teach me to love, just like you.

Refrain:
A prayer to you Father, a song just for You;
A hymn to you Jesus, in honor of You;
A prayer thru you Spirit, song from the heart;
A prayer and song, to our Father above.

2. Teach me to care, Jesus like you; teach to care, to be faithful and true;
Teach me to care, for sinners like me; teach me to care, just like you.

Refrain:

3. Teach me to share, Spirit like you; teach me to share, the Gospel so true;
Teach me to share, with sinners like me; teach me to share, just like you.

Refrain:

We have seen what the scripture says about our role in Time and Opportunity, and in Possessions; now let's see what it says about our role in HEALTH:
1. 1 Cor 6:19-20 - To whom do our bodies belong?
a. We learned earlier that everything belongs to the Lord, and that includes our bodies.
b. We are merely Stewards; stewards both physically and spiritually.
c. Our body is the Temple for the Holy Spirit, which is in us if we are in Christ.
d. We receive both body and spirit from God.
e. We are not our own.
f. We were bought for a price (Christ paid that price for us at Calvary).
g. Therefore, glorify God in your body and in your spirit.
h. They are God's.
2. To Be Continued Friday!

May we be blessed as we honor what God has given us (Both body and Spirit) with love and respect. In His Love, Vic.

A Wednesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Merry Xmas Team Members! It's beginning to look a lot like Xmas! Praise God!

"Heavenly Father, Most High God! The Lord is so good to us! He's our refuge in times of trouble and He cares for those who trust in Him. If we were to place our troubles on a pile where other people also place their's, and we were to see their problems, we might want to take our problems back. If we were warned that in five minutes a great disaster would come upon us, we would flee immediately; and yet You have warned us that a greater disaster is coming on us, our death and judgment, and you have given us this time to flee to safe ground in Jesus Christ. Yet, many of us linger, wondering what we shall take with us. Let us heed your warning and be ready now, lest we are overtaken in eternal destruction. Help us to trust on You during difficult times and also happy times. This we pray in the name of Jesus our Savior, Amen!"

Scriture shows us how Good Stewards use their POSSESSIONS:
7. Acts 4:32-35 - Believers need to be of one heart and one soul.
a. That believed that what they possessed was not their own.
b. They held all things in common, and neither was there among them any that lacked.
c. They sold what they possessed and gave so that distribution was made among the saints unto each person according to thier need.
8. 2 Cor 8:1-5 - The secret to being a Good Steward is revealed here....as they gave, they first gave themselves to the Lord.
9. 2 Cor 9:6-10 - The manifestation of a good steward is seen here:
a. He/she knows that they shall reap according to what and how they sow.
b. We should not give grudgingly or of necessaity, but cheerfully, a willing heart.
c. Giving is not a joke; it is serious business and yet a delightful experience.
d. God is our example in giving (John 3:16).
Tomorrow we will look at HEATH!

May the Lord bless you and be gracious unto you, and may his face shine upon you. In His Love, Vic.
