SHARE LOVE THAT WILL GROW

SHARE A LOVE THAT WILL GROW:

LOVE BOUNTIFUL IN FRUITS FROM THE SOUL:

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

Love suffers long and is kind, love does not envy…parade itself…is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own; it is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity; but, rejoices in the truth. Love bears all things, hopes all things, endures all things; Love never fails (1 Corinthians: 13:4-8; NKJV). What is it about these tributes that make it hard for people to get along in the world? How often do you take a moment and examine your attitude, can you say it’s one of love? For Jesus has taught and shown the world how to love, for which without, no man will see God.

If you pause and look around, you can plainly see that people are growing colder, more immune to violence and despair.  Would you reach out to people you don’t know, those who desperately need to know they matter. Homeless people, those incarcerated, gang members, teenage mothers, runaways, battered women and children, junkies—people who are lost and have given up hope; have you made an attempt to let them know that there are angles among us.

Jesus says, “…my commandment is that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love have no man than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friend (John: 15: 12-13). So, do you pick and choose your friends or do you pray and ask the Master to give you a spirit of discernment instead of prejudice?  You will find that we are eager to admit love for one another and that’s great; but, just think how that same spirit of love can influence the attitude of others helping to shape a better world.

Just for today reverse negative thinking to positive, when you encounter something as simple as saying thank you with a smile you begin a cycle, which will flow from you, through you to others and back to yourself.

We are everything, yet we are nothing, we all are one and that process is comprised of Love, Agape Love, the kind of love Jesus shared throughout his ministry and passed on to all people. “So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well…appropriately…sincere and intelligent not a sentimental gush. Live a lover’s life…Jesus will be proud of: bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God (Philippians:  1: 9-11; MGS).” Glory belongs to God always!

CHIDREN OF GOD, in our PRAYER, PRAISE and WORSHIP SERVICE for this SUNDAY MORNING, we present to you our CHRISTMAS STORY beginning with the Birth of John as God’s divine plan unfolds for many UNBELIEVEING MINDS.  It is a story that many of us have read and studied over a long period of time, but in it all there is always a ray of HOPE and INSPIRATION for a greater tomorrow when we celebrate this beautiful story of the unfolding birth of OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.  Our lesson today is simply title:  “BELIEVE!”  Allow this word to sink deep into your sub-conscious minds, and renew your Spirit daily whenever doubt begin to creep in.  Let us lift up God in high praise for His mighty works, for He is worthy to be PRAISED.

LET US PRAY FOR UNBELIEVING MINDS:

Pastor Davis in Prayer as Zachariah

Pastor Davis in Prayer as Zachariah

Eternal God, Our Heavenly Father, we thank you for those among us who have believed, and we seek divine intervention into the minds of those that are still wavering in their faith.  For we know that with you Heavenly Father, all things are possible to those who believe.  Transforming a world of unbelieving minds may seem to be an impossible task for some, but we as believers are trusting you Heavenly Father, because we know that it is possible.  You sent your only Son into an unbelieving world as a gift that those among us who would believe in Him should not perish but be transformed into a brand new creature and enjoy eternal life.  Through our prayers Heavenly Father we are seeking the same transformation for those unbelieving minds among us today to come into the full knowledge and understanding that you are God, and they can do nothing without you.  And for this Christmas Season, our prayers are for those unbelieving minds to know that Jesus is truly the reason for this Season.  Amen!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE READING:

For with God, nothing shall be impossible.  (Luke 1:37)

Background Scriptures for today’s lesson is from (Luke 1:1-37)

TODAY’S MESSAGE IS TITLE:  “BELIEVE”

Our Christmas Story is a true and profound statement by God who can do all things but fail.  All He asks us to do is to BELIEVE.  In this story, God performed one of the greatest miracles known to man, yet we find it very difficult to BELIEVE when the simplest things are right before our very own eyes.  WHY?  Do we not know that God can never lie, if He lies He will denied Himself.  So why do we continue not to BELIEVE the word of God when the Word of God is truth in itself?

Perhaps, like so many before us, we want God to show us a sign.  Let us examine for a moment the High Priest Zachariah, who was a minister of God that worked at the Temple managing its upkeep, teaching the people the Scriptures, and directing the worship services.  When God sent His Angel Gabriel to tell Zachariah that he and His Wife Elizabeth was going to have a son Zachariah words came perilously close to doubt, [disbelief].  Zachariah wanted more than the word from this Heavenly visitor, he wanted a sign from God.

ZACHARIAH QUESTIONS  GOD'S MESSANGER GABRIEL

ZACHARIAH QUESTIONS GOD’S MESSANGER GABRIEL

So Zachariah question the angle by asking, “How can I know this will happen?”  At that very moment Zachariah saw only the obstacles and not the possibilities of the Good News that the Angel Gabriel was presenting to him from God.  His thoughts were that he and Elizabeth were both well past their childbearing years.  In Zachariah mind, he could not see, comprehend or even understand how God could perform such a miracle and place such a burden on him and his wife at this late stage in their lives.  Gabriel explained to Zachariah by stating, “I am Gabriel; I stand in the very presence of God.”  (Luke 1:19)

When we do not BELIEVE and allow doubt to creep in and rule over our unbelieving minds, it will result in some sort of punishment.  God has His own ways of letting us know that He is not please with our actions, and just like any loving parent, He will punish us for our unbelieving minds.  In Zachariah unbelieving mind, he asked for a sign and was quickly granted his request.  He would be unable to speak until the Child was born.  The angel’s words would certainly come true at the proper time, whether Zachariah BELIEVED or not.  God’s plan had been set in motion and nothing could stop it.  (LUKE 1:20)

Zachariah and Elizabeth had been childless for many years and God had promised a son to them, and God kept His promise.  The promise came even before this child was ever conceived.  God was waiting for the right time to ENCOURAGE them and take away their disgrace of not being able to bare a child in their early childbearing years.  Elizabeth soon realized that in this impossible pregnancy, God had performed a MIRACLE.  (Luke 1:23-25)

What God has done for Zachariah and Elizabeth, He will do the same for you.  With God, nothing is impossible, all you have to do is, “BELIEVE!”

THE STORY OF THE BIRTH OF JOHN

When Elizabeth was full-term in her pregnancy, she bore a son, Her neighbors and relatives, seeing that God had over whelmed her with mercy, celebrated with her.

On the eighth day, they came to circumcise the child and were calling him Zachariah after his father. But his mother intervened: “No. He is to be called John.”

“But,” they said, “no one in your family is named that.” They used sign language to ask Zachariah what he wanted him named.

Asking for a tablet, Zachariah wrote, “His name is to be John.” That took everyone by surprise. Surprise followed surprise—Zachariah’s mouth was now open, his tongue loose, and he was talking, praising God!

TODAY’S ALTER CALL: 

If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to, “BELIEVE!”

Now repeat this short prayer with me:  “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives.  I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins.  If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE  in glory.”

We encourage you to find a local Bible Teaching Church and begin to study and fellowship with other believers.  You can also return back here daily and study God’s word with us.  We share the truth of the scriptures daily, and you will find over 1000 topics for study and discussions.  May the saving grace of our Lord and Savior be with you now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!

CLOSING PRAYER:

Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith—to the only wise Godbe glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.

PRAYER FOR IDLE MINDS TO ENTER INTO THE FIELDS OF PROSPERITY

PRAYER FOR IDLE MINDS TO ENTER INTO THE FIELDS OF PROSPERITY

THE FIELDS ARE WHITE FOR HARVESTING (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE FIELDS ARE WHITE FOR HARVESTING (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

ETERNAL GOD, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, in the name of Jesus, I bow my head before you this day, seeking your blessings over all your servant’s who begin this day’s journey full of  excitement, energy, hope and a desire to make a difference in the lives of your CHILDREN throughout the world, and especially those with IDLE MINDS, by laboring in your FIELDS OF PROSPERITY. You said in your word, that if we would abide in you, you would abide in us, and we would become great FRUIT BEARERS, producing an abundant crop.

So today HEAVENLY FATHER, as we look out into the world we discover that the harvest is ripe, the fields are white, but the labors to gather in this great harvest is few in numbers and because of their IDLE MINDS, they are lingering on the side lines waiting for others to come forward.

We pray HEAVENLY FATHER, that those that continue to live and wait on the side lines with IDLE MINDS, wondering where their next meal will come from, are how they are going to meet their financial obligations; that you will stir up the GIFTS that you have already shared with them. Show them HEAVENLY FATHER, that there is still plenty of work to be done, and all they need to do, is shift their IDLE MINDS from a neutral position and begin to engage with the positive minds that are centered around them. Then they will immediately begin to see a change take place in their lives as their spiritual eyes are open to the abundant harvest that is ripening daily in the FIELDS OF PROSPERITY.

Now bless their IDLE MINDS this day HEAVENLY FATHER, provide them with an opportunity to begin to experience the abundant life that is filled with hope, love, joy, peace, power, purpose and prosperity as they drink from the Spiritual Fountain that will never again allow them to thirst. We ask you to honor this prayer in the name of Jesus, AMEN!

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE:

"WAIT ON THE LORD" PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

“WAIT ON THE LORD” PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE; therefore, your steps are ordered by the Lord, carefully arranged by God (God alone), for we live out our purpose in him. We are reminded through God’s Word, “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.” (Deuteronomy 28:6)

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE so take time to learn, be a good listener, live in obedience and allow the Holy Spirit to be your guide.  Meditate on the Lord and consider the direction, instructions and method you’ve been blessed to embody. Scripture reminds you this way, “Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity” (1Timothy 4:11-14; MGS). In order to accomplish your mission you must be diligent in the faith, study, and immerse yourself totally in Gods’ word; free of worldly influence, teaching others to share the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

In order to gather in the harvest you must be willing to share in the pain and suffering, because the whole object of the “Prince of Darkness” is to block your blessings; just remember that GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE and he has equipped you with strength and power to fulfill your mission. “Say to those who are fearful-hearted, be strong, do not fear” (Isaiah 35:4; NKJV) the battle is not yours, it belongs to the Lord. Today, make the decision, take a step, it’s time to stop wasting precious moments wishing and procrastinating; remember, GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.

Jesus says, “Ask and it shall be given to you, seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened.”(Matthew 7:7). If its patience, humility, strength, endurance or whatever you desire, you must initiate your blessing. God sits high and he watches over his children, he knows your every need; therefore, know today that GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE, step out in faith without wavering. Take the opportunity offered and live out the purpose for which you have been created. “Claim your joy and peace!!”

FOLLOWING GOD’S PLAN SECURES OUR FREEDOM

FOLLOWING GOD’S PLAN SECURES OUR FREEDOM:

"IT'S WISE TO PONDER THE COURSE, " PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

“IT’S WISE TO PONDER THE COURSE, ” PHOTO BY SHIRLEY RHODES

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

FOLLOWING GOD’S PLAN SECURES OUR FREEDOM, our journey into the world comes with all sorts of human weakness but it is not the plan of God that any should be lost. In his word we are able to develop strength and courage to weather the storms of life if we are willing to accept him as our savior and walk in faith. We are not promised that the journey will be easy but we are encouraged by the words Jesus spoke when he said, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11: 29-30: NKJV)

FOLLOWING GOD’S PLAN SECURES OUR FREEDOM; therefore, we must “lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” (Hebrews 12:1-2)

FOLLOWING GOD’S PLAN SECURES OUR FREEDOM; as we journey we must remember that we are not beyond the desire of Satan’s attempt to cause us to detour from the course set before us. We must prepare for the battle of our very souls; therefore, we must gird ourselves in the “whole armor.” Scripture reminds us, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil (the ruler of darkness). (Ephesians 6:11), your armor consist of truth, righteousness, the gospel of peace, faith, salvation, the Word of God and prayer. Clothed in this armor you will be able to repel the forces of evil.

We must learn to put our trust in God, rely on his Word as our compass among chaos and instability in the world; FOLLOWING GOD’S PLAN SECURES OUR FREEDON, because he lifts us to a level far beyond the elements of this world.  

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE MYSTERIOUS TRUTHS OF SPIRITUAL LIFE?

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE MYSTERIOUS TRUTHS OF SPIRITUAL LIFE?

Growing up into Christ (YOU ARE TRULY DIVINE)

The change of heart by which we become children of God is in the Bible spoken of as birth. Again, it is compared to the germination of the good seed sown by the husbandman. In like manner those who are just converted to Christ are,” as newborn babies,” to grow up” to the stature of the men and women in Christ Jesus1 Peter 2:2; Ephesians 4:15. Or like the good seed sown in the field, they ought to grow up and bring forth fruit. Isaiah says that they shall” be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.” Isaiah 61:3. Therefore, from natural life, illustrations are drawn, to help us better understand the mysterious truths of spiritual life.

Not all the wisdom and skill of command can produce life in the smallest object in nature. It is only through the life which God himself has imparted, that either plant or animal can live. Therefore, it is only through the life from God that spiritual life is begotten in the hearts of man. Unless a man is “born from above,” he cannot become a partaker of the life, which Christ came to give. John 3:3.

As with life, so it is with growth. It is God, who brings the bud to bloom and the flower to fruit. It is by his power that the seed develops,” first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.” Mark 4:28. Moreover, the prophet Hosea says to Israel, that “he shall grow as the Lily.”  “They shall revise as the corn, and grow as the vine.” Hosea 14:5, 7.  And Jesus bids us” consider the lilies how they grow.” Luke 12:27. The plants and flowers grow not by their own care, anxiety, or effort, but by receiving that which God has furnished to minister to their life. The child cannot by any anxiety or power of its own, add to its own stature. No more can you, by anxiety or effort of yourself, secure spiritual growth. The plant, the child, grows by receiving from its surroundings that which ministers to its life – air, sunshine, and food. What these gifts of nature are to animal and plant, such is Christ to those who trust in him. He is there” everlasting light,”  “a sun and shield.”  Isaiah 60:19; Psalms 84:11, he shall be as ” the dew unto Israel.” “He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass.” Hosea 14:5; it Psalms 72:6. He is the living water,” the bread of God… Which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.” John 6:33.

Now in the Maecenas give of his son, God has in store call the whole world with an atmosphere of grace as real as the air which circulates around the globe. All who choose to breathe this life given atmosphere will live and grow up to the stature of men and women in Christ Jesus.

As the flower turns to the sun, that the bright beams of may aid in perfecting its beauty and symmetry, so should we turn to the Sun of righteousness, that heavens light may shine upon us, that our character may be developed into the likeness of Christ.

Jesus teaches the same thing when he says, “abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abides in the vine; no more can ye, except he abide in me… Without me you can do nothing.” John 15:4, 5. You are just as dependent upon Christ, in order to live a holy life, as is the branch upon the parent stock for growth and fruitfulness. Apart From Him, you have no life. You have no power to resist temptation or to grow in grace and holiness. Abiding in him, you may flourish. Drawing your life from him, you will not wither nor be fruitless. You will be like a tree, planted by the rivers of water.

Many have an idea that they must do some part of the work alone. They have trusted in Christ’s for the forgiveness of sin, but now they seek by their own efforts to live aright. However, every such effort must fail. Jesus says,” Without me ye can do nothing.” Our growth in grace, our joy, our usefulness, all depend upon our union with Christ. It is by communion with him, daily, hourly, by abiding in him, that we are to grow in grace. He is not only the author, but the finisher of our faith. It is Christ’s first, last, and always. He is to be with us, not only at the beginning and the end of our course, but at every step of the way.” I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.” Psalms 16:8.

Do you ask,” how is I to abide in Christ?” In the same way as you received him at first.” As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk you in him.”  ” The just shall live by faith.” Colossians 2:6; Hebrews 10:38. You gave yourself to God, to be his holy, to serve and obey him, and you took Christ as your Savior. You could not yourself atone for your sins are changing your heart; but having given yourself to God, you believe that He for Christ sake did all this for you.

By faith, you became Christ’s, and by faith, you are to grow up in him, by giving and taking. You are to give all, your heart, you will, your service, give yourself to him to obey all his requirements; and you must take all, Christ, the fullness of all blessings, to abide in your heart, to be your strength, your righteousness, your everlasting helper, to give you power to obey.
