A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, February 28, 2011

A Blessed Morning To all SP Members! We had a terrific weekend! Hope you did too. Give God all the glory!

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Merciful God! We are grateful that in your great mercy You did not put an end to our disobedience nor abandon us. We are aware everyday of your great mercy towards us. Thank You that You never judging us according to what we deserve. Your grace unto us is beyond our comprehension. Thank You for not forsaking us. Help us never to forsake You, nor to grow in our disobedience to You. Instead, enable us to grow in our faith and in our works of obedience. Help us to change our attitude so we may be right with You. And help us never to take your mercy for granted. This we ask in the Blessed name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Challenge To Believe In Jesus! (Mark 5:1-20).
1. How did the people react?
a. Vs 17 - The people pleaded (requested, implored) with Jesus to leave their coast (region).
1. Fear for lack of understanding was the basis for their request.
2. Fear of Jesus' power rather than financial losses was the basis for their plead.
3. Their fear kep them from receiving additional blessings.
b. How did Jesus react? (Vs 18).
1. Jesus returned to the boat.
2. Jesus will not stay where He is not wanted, even though He may be needed.
3. How we respond will determine whether he stays or leave.
c. How did the man who had been cleansed respond?
1. He wanted to go with Jesus. (Vs 18).
2. How did Jesus respond to him? To Be Continued Tomorrow!
2. What do you think about this? How have you responded to Jesus' landing on your shore?
a. Did you fear Him and asked Him to leave? OR!
b. Did you invite Him into your life with joy and love.

May our merciful God helps us all to receiveJesus who is the source of eternal life and all spiritual blessings from heaven. In His Mercy, Vic.

A Sunday Morning Spiritual Hymn!

Sunday, February 27, 2011

Aloha SP Members! Here is a hymn that was inspired by Rom 5:1-11, and is the favorite of many:

AMAZING GRACE

1. Amazing grace! how sweet the sound! That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now I'm found; Was blind, but now I see.

2. 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved,
How precious did that grace appear, The hour I first believed!

3. Thru many dangers, tolls and snares, I have already come;
Tis grace hath bro't me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home.

4. When we've been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise, Than when we first begun.

5. Amazing grace! how sweet the sound! That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now I'm found; Was blind, but now I see.

In His Grace, Vic.

    Vic,
I just finished a biography about the author of Amazing Grace, so reading the words again had a special meaning for me.
He lead a roller coaster life and came through it with the blessings of God.
Thanks for writing it out and May God bless you.

A Saturday Morning Spiritual Hymn!

Saturday, February 26, 2011

Gooooood Morning SP Members!


Here is a hymn inspired by 1 John 5:11 and loved by many: " Blessed Assurance"

1. Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! O what a fore-taste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God, Born of the Spirit, washed in His blood.

REFRAIN: This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Savior all the day long.

2. Perfect submission, perfect delight, Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels decending bring from above, Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

REFRAIN:

3. Perfect submission, all is at rest, I in my Savior am happy andd blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above, Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

REFRAIN:

May everyone be blessed with the peace and love that comes from God.
Have a wonderful weekend! In His Love, Vic.

    Thank you Sweetie, as the struggles of everyday gets in my way sometimes, it is nice to know that I have Christ alone for salvation, and an assurance that was given me, that He has taken sins, even mine.

We are glad You look past our imperfections and see the perfect qualities of Jesus, Your Son, living in us. Help us to grow in our daily walk with the Master, and help us to live Your way so our walk may be pleasing in Your sight.

    May God bestow on us His grace,
With blessings rich provide us,
And may the brightness of His face
To life eternal guide us
That we His saving health may know,
His gracious will and pleasure,
And also to the heathen show
Christ’s riches without measure
And unto God convert them.

Thine over all shall be the praise
And thanks of every nation,
And all the world with joy shall raise
The voice of exultation;
For Thou shalt judge the earth, O Lord,
Nor suffer sin to flourish;
Thy people’s pasture is Thy Word
Their souls to feed and nourish,
In righteous paths to keep them.

Oh, let the people praise Thy worth,
In all good works increasing;
The land shall plenteous fruit bring forth,
Thy Word is rich in blessing,
May God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit bless us!
Let all the world praise Him alone,
Let solemn awe possess us,
Now let our hearts say, Amen.

A Thursday Morning Prayer and Message!

Thursday, February 24, 2011

A Blessed Morning To SP Members! God is so good! PRAISE HIS NAME!

PRAYER: "Loving Father, Almighty God! Help us to never be careless about Your Ways nor Your Word. Enable us to not allow anything that has to do with our worship to You to become lifeless nor like a ritual that has lost it depth of meaning. Keep the disciplines of prayer, praise, reading and studing Your Word ever fresh and alive in our hearts and in our minds so that we will always have a passionate hunger for Your presence in our lives. This we pray and ask in the name of our Beloved Jesus, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Challenge To Believe! (Mark 5:1-20).
1. Vs 14 - The herdsmen that fed and kept the swines, fled and told it to the city.
a. Wherever Jesus goes, there are always people watching.
b. Why did the herdsmen fled and told it to the city?
c. Because they didn't want to be blamed for what had happened to the swines.
d. We do not know what they told the people, but it probably went something like this:
"This man named Jesus made the devils in the wild tormented man to go into the swines, and they ran into the sea and drown. It wasn't our fault!"
e. We have never done that....Have we?
2. What do you think about this?
a. Will the people of the city believe the herdsmen?
b. How will the people react?
c. What will they conclude?
d. What will they do about it?
3. To Be Continued Tomorrow!
May God bless us with faith to believe in Jesus and follow Him.
In His Love, Grace, Mercy, Forgiveness and Power, Vic.
