Wednesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 12 Day 3

Psalm 139: 13-17 is quoted in today's lesson, "You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb.  I praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that  full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place.  When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body.  All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.  How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God!  How vast is the sum of them."

And then there is the statement, "God's eternal purpose for each of your children is that they be conformed to the image of Christ.

Praise the Lord!!!

Bro. Paul

Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 12 Day 2

Here is our memory verse for the week:

"Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.  Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

Here are the summary statements for Day 2: 

1.  Regularly pray for and with your spouse.

2.  Regularly ask your spouse spiritual questions.

3.  Review your spiritual markers as a couple.

4.  Give together.

Bro. Paul

Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 11 Day 5

At the end of Day 5 this week, Henry Blackaby gives a testimony that I think is worth repeating,:

"When my wife, Marilynn, and I were teenagers, God placed a burden for the world on our hearts.  Early in our marriage we heard a missionary issue a call to those who were willing to go wherever God called them.  We both went forward and surrendered our lives to go anywhere God sent us.  Our denominational mission agency preliminarily approved us to serve in Africa, but then our oldest son, Richard, came down with a mysterious illness.  The mission agency encouraged us to delay going to Africa until doctors could determine the nature of Richard's condition.  Over the next few months God made it clear He was calling us not to Africa but to Canada.  When we arrived in Canada, doctors discovered that Richard no longer had the illness.  We served for the next 18 years in mission work in Canada.  During that time God taught me much about walking with Him by faith, and I was eventually asked to write about what I had learned in the course "Experiencing God."

Over the years I have learned that although God does not call everyone to be an author or a preacher, He expects all His children to have the world on their hearts.  Can God impact the world through one life or one church?  Certainly.  He is looking for those people and churches today."

Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 11 Day 2

This week we are going to talk about 'koinonia" a lot.  "Koinonia" is the greek word we "fellowship".  Blackaby make a statement that says, " You cannot be in true fellowship with God and out of fellowship with other believers."  Here are some of the scriptures that relate to this truth:

1.  Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness.  Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble.  But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness.  I John 2: 9-11

2.  Since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.  No one has ever seen God; But if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us.  I John 4: 11-12

3.  If anyone says, "I love God" yet hates his brother, he is a liar.  For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.  And He has given us this command: Whoever loves God MUST also love his brother.  I John 4: 20-21

(capital letters in MUST are put there by me)

Bro. Paul
