A Tuesday Morning Hymn and Message!

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Greetings Team Members! We are just a few days away from Xmas. Praise the Lord!

Hymn Title: The First Noel

1. The first Noel, the angels did say, was to certain poor shepherds in field where they lay; In field where they lay, keeping their sheep, on a cold winter night that was so deep.

Refrain: Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel, Born is the King of Israel.

2. They looked up and saw a great star, Shining in the east beyond them far; and to the earth, it gave great light, and so it continue both day and night. Refrain.

3. And by the light of that same star, Three wisemen came from country far, To seek for a king was their intent, and follow the star wherever it went. Refrain.

4. This star drew nigh to the northeast, ov'r Bethlehem it took its rest, And there it both stop and stay, Right over the place where Jesus lay. Refrain.

Message: Paul showed us how to be the right kind of example to the world, and today let's listen To Jesus how He shows us the way:
1. Matt 5:13 - Jesus says Christians are the SALT of the earth. But salt that loses it's flavor is good for nothing except to be trodden under foot of men.
a. Salt adds flavor, acts as a preservative, melts coldness, and heals wounds.
b. This is a good description of the true believer in their relationship to others.
2. Matt 5:14-16 - Jesus says Christians are the light of the world.
a. A city on a hill cannot be hidden; neither does a man light a candle and hide it.
b. A candlestick gives light to all in the house.
c. So be like the candle and let your light so shine that others may see your good works and glorify the Father which is in heaven.
d. Salt is the condition to meet men's needs, and light is the mission of Christians to all men.
e. Darkness is the absence of Light. Darkness alone cannot dispel light, but the smallest light can dispel the great darkness.
3. Now that's something to think about! To Be Continue Tomorrow.
Merry Xmas Everyone, God Bless, Vic.

    A cool way to see that verse. I would not have thought about salt's properties that way.

A Monday Morning Prayerful Hymn and Message!

Monday, December 20, 2010

Merry Xmas Team Members! Thank you for your responses and comments this past week. Praise God and give Him all the glory.

Hymn Title: What Child Is This?

1. What child is this, who, laid to rest, on Mary's lap is sleeping? Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, while shepherds watch are keeping.

Refrain: This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and angels sing; Haste, haste to bring Him laud, the Babe, the Son of Mary.

2. Why lies He in such mean estate, where ox and ass are feeding? Good Christians, fear, for sinners here the silent Word is pleading. Refrain:

3. So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh, peasant King, to own Him, the King of Kings salvation brings, let loving hearts enthrone Him. Refrain:

Today's message:

As we continue to look at what the Bible teaches us concerning moral and immoral issues, a third major question needs to be asked: What impact will our example have on others? Will our example encourage others to serve God better, or will it be a bad example?
1. 1 Tim 4:12-16 - Paul teaches Timothy, as he teaches us even today, to be good examples for believers and nonbelivers:
a. In word (In conversation).
b. In conversation (In behavior).
c. In charity (In loving others).
d. In spirit (In proper attitude).
e. In faith (In trusting God always and in everything).
f. In purity (In sexual behavior and in life integrity).
g. How? Read verses 13 thru 16.
h. Why? Verse 16, "For in doing so, thou shall both save thyself, and those that hear thee".
i. Test yourself in each of the areas listed above to see how you measure up.
2. To Be Continued Tuesday!
May each of you be willing to stand in truth and be blessed. In His Love, Vic.

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.
