Praise Your glorious Name, Father. Amen.

Evangelism!

John 21:15
"So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?”
He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.”
He said to him, “Feed My lambs.”"

Father, help me to reflect Your love toward others.
HELP ME TO REMEMBER THAT EVERY PERSON I LOCK EYES WITH TODAY MATTERS TO YOU!
May they matter to me too, in ways that move me to action.
HELP ME TO REALIZE THAT IF THEY DON'T KNOW YOU, THEN THEY ARE LOST & IN DESPERATE NEED OF THE GOOD NEWS OF CHRIST!
Lord, prepare me & give me boldness so I'll be able to explain the Gospel well.
Help me to be a genuine friend who will attract them to You & Your church.
Give me wisdom so I'll know how direct to be with Your message & when to back off, so I can help them keep taking steps toward You.

PLEASE, FATHER, USE ME! Make me effective in Your hands today as I try to spread Your love & truth. Help me to abide in Christ & to bear much fruit. Thank you for this privilege.

In Jesus' name, Amen!

Proverbs 15: 3 OMNIPRESENT

"The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, observing the wicked and the good." 
~ (Proverbs 15: 3)

             

OMNIPRESENT - present in all places at all times.

INVITE THEM, BUT DON'T PUSH THEM THROUGH THE DOOR!

2 Timothy 2:4
"Who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."

"GOD'S DESIRE IS NOT THAT SOME MIGHT BE SAVED!"
"NOR THAT ANY SHOULD BE CONVINCED TO RECITE A PRAYER!"
"NOR BE ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN CHURCH ACTIVITIES!"

"NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"THIS IS NOT WHY THE LORD STEPPED DOWN FROM HIS THRONE IN HEAVEN & TOOK ON HUMAN FORM & SUFFERED A HORRIBLE DEATH!!!!!"

"IF WE REDUCE CHRISTIANITY TO A NUMBER, JESUS' DEATH WAS IN VAIN!"
"IF WE REDUCE CHRISTIANITY TO A RECITAL, JESUS' DEATH WAS IN VAIN!"
"IF WE REDUCE CHRISTIANITY TO AN ACTIVITY, YES YOU GUESSED RIGHT, JESUS' DEATH WAS IN VAIN!!!!"

"GOD'S DESIRE IS THAT ALL WILL COME TO REPENTANCE & BE SAVED!"
"BUT THAT REQUIRES THE HOLY SPIRIT'S STIRRING, NOT PEER PRESSURE!"

"REPENTANCE IS SOMETHING THAT IS DONE FROM WITHIN THE PERSON'S HEART AS THEY COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH!"

"THEREFORE, LET US STOP CRAVING FOR PEOPLE TO MAKE COMMITMENTS THAT THEY DON'T INTEND TO KEEP!"
"INSTEAD LET US BEGIN TO PRAY FOR GOD'S TRUTH TO ILLUMINATE PEOPLES HEART SO THAT TRUE TRANSFORMATION MAY TAKE PLACE ON THE INSIDE, BRINGING  ABOUT DELIVERANCE & SALVATION TO THE INDIVIDUAL!"

"WE ARE CALLED TO EXTEND AN INVITATION, NOT ACCEPT IT FOR THEM!"

Matthew 18: 20

"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst." ~ (Matthew 18: 20)

                         

We praise You Lord for always being there, for always being accessible, and hearing the prayer of those reading and sharing in this message together today. Amen.

Deuteronomy 20: 4

"For the Lord your God is the One who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory." ~ (Deuteronomy 20 :4)
 
                             Victory in Jesus
 
We declare victory in Jesus over sickness, sin, death, worry, doubt, and whatever else the all time loser, satan, has in his arsenal. Praise to our Leader, King Jesus! Amen.

HE LOVES US!

Romans 6:1-4
"What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life."

Breaking News:
The "I LOVE YOU MORE CONTEST WITH GOD MUST END TODAY!"

"WE MUST STOP TRYING TO MATCH GOD'S PERFECT LOVE WITH OUR POOR ATTEMPTS OF UNDERSTANDING WHAT LOVE TRULY IS!"
"GOD IS LOVE & THEREFORE LOVE IS UNSEARCHABLE TO THE HUMAN MIND!"
"BECAUSE CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG, BUT TO THIS DAY, NO ONE  HAS FIGURED OUT THE DEPTHS & RICHES OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD!"
"THEREFORE WE CAN NOT MATCH UP AGAINST SOMEONE THAT WE HAVE NOT FULLY KNOWN!"

So with this, I just want to encourage everyone to:
"RECEIVE GOD'S LOVE FOR YOU IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD & STOP TRYING TO RESPOND SENSELESSLY!"
"GOD'S LOVE FOR YOU IS SOMETHING THAT IS TOTALLY UNMERITED & DEFINITELY NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN RETURN!"

"LET A LIFE OF GRATITUDE BE YOUR EXPRESSION!"
"LET YOUR SERVICE & LOYALTY BE YOUR RETURN!"
