Children of God, where ever you are in this world, what ever you are doing, you ought to stop right now, lift up your hands and just begin to praise God, thanking Him for this opportunity to be in a position to read and study His Holy Word. You know He woke you up this morning in your right minds and gave you another day to journey through this world by faith. He has blessed your soul and today we just want to give Him the praise and glory for allowing us to open our eyes this morning, stand up on our own two feet, and a voice to speak His Holy name. So just begin to calling out the name Jesus, Jesus, oh how I love you Lord, thank you Lord, thank you Lord, you didn’t have to wake me but you did it any way, thank you Jesus, thank you Jesus, I am just going to praise your Holy name. Amen!
WHEN PRAISES GO UP, BLESSINGS COME DOWN!
LET US PRAY:
Eternal God, our Heavenly Father, we thank you for the love and joy we are feeling in our hearts this day because you sent your son Jesus, that He may awaken our dead spirits, and stir up the many gifts that you created within us before you sent us into this world. Today we enter into your house of prayer to lift you up and give you the praise and the glory for all that we are and all that we are going to become in our brand new life of change as we stir up and develop the gifts that you have provided for us to use for your purpose. It is truly a joy to come into the full knowledge, understanding and power that we have these gifts and can now use them to become co-creators with you and for filling our purpose in which you created us to be, in Jesus name, Amen!
TIME FOR ALTER CALL
So that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-11 ESV)
HOW TO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE
What must I do to be saved? This question was first asked by a jailer at Ephesus, who witnessed an earthquake that freed Paul and Silas. Paul and Silas were the Church’s first official evangelists, who had been falsely arrested and beaten and left in his charge. The earthquake came as the climax to a midnight prison cell prayer and praise meeting and it spurred the jailer to consider the condition of his soul. What must I do to be saved, you asked? If you truly want to be saved, listen to what the Lord says you must do, “you should first go to God in prayer. When praying to Him you should tell Him you are sorry for the sinful things that you have done against Him and how you want to do the right thing from now on (1 John 1:9, Acts 20:21). Next you should ask Him to forgive your sins through His death payment on the cross (Colossians 2:10-14). Last, make a commitment to God that you will wholly follow His commandments and believe on Him and His Word, with the help of His Holy Spirit (John 14:15). Congratulations, you are SAVED (John 8:32)! You have become a new person, and you will be able to live a life that is pleasing to God (2 Corinthians 5:14-17 ). Now, God will come into your heart and live with you (Revelation 3:20). This is so you can be close to Him, receive His power, and understand His Word (1 John 3:16, Acts1:8, John14:26).
Father we thank you for allowing us to come into your presence and worship you, strengthen us as we GO out to SERVE; Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
