What do we do in difficult times…

What did Jesus do in the presences of his disciples when there wasn’t enough to feed the crowd …bless the little they had and gave thanks….

Lord today we remember those effected by the hurricane in America. Lord you are the light of the world, may you shine in the midst of the darkness as many families & friends are facing right now…
You said a wise man builds on solid ground and everything is else is sinking sand. Just as we saw in 9/11 communities and races were working together for the sake of all humanity let this be a reminder for us of our moral responsibility to love, care and share the values of Christ
.

ROM 13:8
Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.

Fellowship is life

Any way…

The real measure of a person is not to be moved by any one ~
but to live honestly by the convictions and the virtues of Christ not a religion or an institution ~ thank you Ann for this timely post…

This Thing Called Life . . .

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;

forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;

be kindanyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;

succeedanyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;

be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, some could destroy overnight;

buildanyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;

be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;

do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;

give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;

it was never between you and them anyway.

—Mother Teresa

In a twinkle of an eye we all “will be changed”

20121025-154119.jpg

1Cr 15:51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed ~ The moment we eagerly a wait

Where does the theory of being left behind come from? The scripture says ALL WILL BE CHANGED, those in Christ….

“Fellowship is life”

The book of remembrance

Malachi 3:16

Those who feared the LORD talked with each other, and the LORD listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the LORD and honored his name.

How great is it to know there is a book the LORD would record when we honour & speak of his name. often we hear about the wrath of God more than his loving strengthening & empowering GRACE that endures. Sin is an issue yes in a broken & perverse world that needs careful attention but GRACE abounds even more to dealing with my sin your sin OUR sins…Rom 5:20

So, in times like this what should be our attention be centred around?

Malachi says

Those who revere the lord spoke one to another “fellowship” which Jesus pray for his disciples and those who would follow him through their words.

Keeping the unity of the spirit is fundamental as we approach the gathering of ourselves with the lord as the bible says there is one body one faith and one Lord

When we share the scriptures We alway let the fellowship group know this scripture in Malachi 3:16 especially when young Christians are there we encourage them to see how powerful fellowship is. The lord hate anything that reflects discord, if its opinions, views or doctrine which isn’t more important than the unity of our fellowship.

There is a rapid decline in fellowship in our communities which isn’t a joke, we need more of it as the day approaches heb 10:25

One important core values
“Fellowship is life”

The most “misunderstood” message…

20121025-151651.jpg

2Peter 3:15

Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means “salvation”

Just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him.

He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to “understand”

which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.

Peter was concise about the ministry and teaching from his fellow apostle Paul.
The thread in Paul’s writings was very much based on the revelation of Gods Grace 1cor 15:10 which Peter says he writes the same in all his writings, I guess the signature of the apostles personal experience with Christ.

The mystery of Grace shouldn’t be a mystery if you are a Christian, it should be a living reality we often speak about

Paul’s passion was to preach Christ to the gentiles but the message of grace was a struggle for Jewish christians to receive so the Jerusalem church sent barnabas to see what Paul was preaching to the Greeks.

Act 11:22 News of this reached the ears of the church at Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch.

Act 11:23 When he arrived and saw the evidence of the grace of God, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts.
