A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, January 31, 2011

Gooooooooooood Morning SP Members! Today, we begin a new series of lessons entitled: JESUS IS LORD!

PRAYER: " Heavenly Father, Glorious Lord! Thank you for giving us this time to study your Word. As we enter this study, we look to You for guidance, for knowledge, for understanding, and for wisdom. Open our hearts, our ears and our eyes so we may be more receptive to your Word. Let the engrafted Word be our Law and our way of life. Bless your Word and bless all who receive your Word with gladness. This we pray and ask this morning in the name of Jesus our Lord. Amen!"

MESSAGE: Are you " Doubt Free" that Jesus is Lord?
1. The question before us is this: "Why should we believe in God, in Jesus, or in the Bible"?
a. Where else can truth be found?
b. How else would we know what is good and what is evil?
c. How else could we learn of God's plan for us?
2. The purpose of this study is to examine the evidence of some of the most basic claims of the Bible.
3. Here is the challenge for this Study: "IF JESUS CAN DO WHAT MAN CANNOT DO, THEN GOD IS REAL, JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD, AND THE BIBLE IS GOD'S MESSAGE TO YOU AND ME".
4. What do you think about this? Are you "Doubt Free"? To Be Continued Tomorrow!
May God illuminate the way for us and bless us as we enter this study.
In His Love, Vic.

    I see God working through Jesus in my life every day! He has done things for me that I could never have done alone, and He answers my pryaers. They are not always the answers I am looking for or expect, but I am learning to trust in His will and have faith in what He wants for me.

    Jesus has done so much for me in my life, even when I was far from Him, that I am doubt free. He brought my heart close to Him!

A Sunday Morning Spiritual Hymn!

Sunday, January 30, 2011

Goooooooooooooood Morning SP Members!

Tomorrow we will begin a new series of lessons whose title is the same as today's hymn:

TITLE: JESUS IS LORD

1. Jesus is Lord, My Redeemer, How He loves me, how I love him.
He is risen, He is coming, Lord, come quickly, hallelujah.

2. What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear;
What a privilege to carry, Ev'ry-thing to God in prayer.

3. Hallelujah, hallelujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah!

May your worship to God be in Spirit and in Truth today as you honor Jesus as Lord of your life. In His Love, Vic,

A Saturday Morning Spiritual Hymn!

Saturday, January 29, 2011

Goooooooood Morning SP Members! I thought a hymn that would be fitting for the lessons we have just completed studying, would be good this morning: The Title: " Footsteps of Jesus"

1. Sweetly, Lord, have we heard thee calling, "Come, follow me!"
And we see where thy footsteps falling, Lead us to thee. REFRAIN

2. Tho they lead o'er the cold, dark mountain, Seeking His sheep.
Or along by Siloam's fountain, helping the weak: REFRAIN

3. If they lead thru the temple holy, Preaching the Word,
Or in homes of the poor and lowly, Serving the Lord. REFRAIN

4. By and By, thru the shining portals, Turning our feet,
We shall walk with the glad immortals, Heav'ns golden street. REFRAIN

REFRAIN: Footprints of Jesus, that make the pathway glow;
We will follow the steps of Jesus, Wher-e'r they go.

Tomorrow, we will share a hymn that will introduce the new series of lesson on Monday. Have a Terrific weekend and may heaven's blessings fill all your hearts with the love of God. In His Love, Vic.

A Friday Morninmg Prayer and Message!

Friday, January 28, 2011

Greetings On This Friday SP members! Today's message will complete this series of moral and immoral lessons we have been studying.

PRAYER: "Glorious Father, Holy God! We thank You for this study from your Word. It has encouraged us to live a life of righteousness, just like Jesus. For all the wonderful things You have done for us in the past, for all the wonderful things You are doing for us today, and for all the wonderful things You will do for us in the future.....WE THANK YOU! Keep us from fear and discouragement as we face daily challenges of life. Fill us with Your love, Word and strength to face these challenges. Thank You for going before us with a battle plan of victory. We look to You for guidance always, so we may possess all You have for us. Thank You Father for Jesus who made all of this possible. It is in His name that we pray, Amen!"

MESSAGE: We are going to make mistakes along the way, but we know God will forgive us for trying and encourage us....DO NOT BE AFRAID!
1. 1 Cor 11:1 - "Be ye followers (imitators) of me, even as I am (a follower) of Christ".
a. As humans with weaknesses, we will make mistakes in trying to follow Christ.
b. But that is not an acceptable reason to quit.
c. Jesus is our example to follow, He was perfect in everyway.
d. We will be forgiven and encouraged to follow Jesus in all areas of our lives.
e. This is our challenge in life:
1. To learn from our mistakes.
2. So we can become more like Him each day.
2. Eph 5:1-2 - Teaches us the ways of the believer:
a. Walk in Love as Christ loved us.
b. Offer yourself unto God as a sweet aroma, even as Christ did.
c. And always ask yourself, "What would Jesus do in a case or situation like this?"
3. I pray that you have learned and enjoy this series of lessons as much as I enjoyed sharing them with you.
4. Monday, we will begin a new series of lessons.
May God bless each of you as He has blessed me. In the Love of Jesus, Vic.

A Thursday Morning Prayer and Message!

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Gooooooooooood Morning SP Members! We had a beautiful day yesterday...Give God the glory!

PRAYER: "Glorious Father, Awesome God! We lift up to You the areas of our lives that are overwhelming and burdensome. We come to You, not to complain, but to seek your help. We tried to handle these by our own strength, and it was more than we could carry. Please forgive us for not turning earlier to you and learning to come to You for all our needs. Take each burden from our hearts and enable us to rise above every challenging situation in our life. Let your Spirit help us carry these burdens so we do not have to carry them alone. This we pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen!"

MESSAGE: How would you compare your life to Christ?
1. 1 Pet 2:21-25 - Why has Christ called us?
a. Christ suffered for us, leaving us an example to follow His steps.
b. What steps?
1. Who did not sin nor deceived.
2. Who, when reviled (assailed), reviled not.
3. Who, when he suffered, He threatened not.
4. Who, commited himself unto Him (God) that judges righteously.
5. Who, bore our sins on his body at Calvary.
c. WHY? "That we being dead to sin, should live unto righteousness".
d. WHY? To return us (reconcile us) who had gone astray like sheep, unto the Shepherd of our souls, God.
2. What do you think about this? Is your living a life of righteousness? Or, are you still living in sin? To Be Continued!
May God forgive us our sins and bless us with Hid grace and love. In His Love, Vic.
