God Loves His Creation.

Let us pray

Let us pray

Father, We seek your presence that we may be made aware of power beyond ourselves. Forgive us when we forget that your ability is always available to us as we struggle in our daily walk with thee. We seek your presence, Father, because we need a strong shield against temptation, we are tempted daily by the devices of the world. Keep us we pray from compromising your truths or engaging in activity’s that are displeasing to you. We need your presence that we may find the ability and desire to be taught what is Godlike and right. We need your presence so that we might understand what is holy and sacred and eternal.
Father, we need your presence so that we might have a love for your word with all its power and insight and guidance. We need your presence so that we may be examples of Godlikeness as we walk in the community, and as we show loyalty to your kingdom, and serve you in all humility among our fellow human beings, and as we show care for your creation. We pray this prayer in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Living with uncertainties<<<<<<<<>>>>>>

Today, we live in a world where nothing is certain.
Because of natural disasters like Hurricanes,
Volcanoes, fires, and floods no one knows where
there is a safe place to live today. And it is the
same with a business or employment, one day
the enterprise or job is booming and the next day
your unemployed or filing for bankruptcies so that
no one knows what business or workplace is secure.
In these troubled times of uncertainties
 the Psalmist says In all your ways
 acknowledge the Lord, and He will direct your paths
(Prov.3:6).

World News>>>>>>>>>

Although the Department of Health and Human Service
officials had warned the Trump administration that
separating families would be dangerous for children.
However, some of the government’s top immigration
Officials used a Senate hearing to defend how the policy
has been implemented, with one Official comparing
family detention Centers to that of a “summer camp.” 
 
What’s wrong with such thinking?
 
For one, no’ loving mother will willingly send their
four-year-old Child off to a summer camp if the
child is crying, kicking, and screaming from intense fear.
This comment by some of the government’s top
immigration Officials who have compared family detention
Centers to a “summer camp.” is an insult to all mothers
regardless of the color of their skin, or, their nationality.
Any loving mother would never send their crying children
of to one of the governments camps.

SUNDAY SCHOOL NEWS<<<<<<<<

Perfect attendance for July was,

Keep up the good work Zoey
God will reward you for your faithfulness

An ugly past>>>>>>>>>>>>>

As young men and woman, it seems like our past follows us around like an ugly cloud reminding us of our past sins, even though we might have committed these wrongdoings ignorantly. The Bible speaks about a young man named Saul,
Who’s past, followed him around like a dark shadow, reminding him of the evils he had committed in the past. Sometimes if a person has an ugly past, Society tends to shun them because of their past lifestyle such was the case with Saul (Acts.9:26). Not only was Saul, a murderer (Acts.9:1), he also was making havoc of the Church of God, even entering Christian homes and dragging off men and woman, and committing everyone to prison who claimed to be a follower of Christ (Act.8:3). Like Saul, if you had or still have a wicked past, then there is good news for you in Saul’s story.
 
Paul writes a letter to young Timothy whom he is tutoring for the ministry telling Timothy, that Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief, said Paul (1-Tim 1:15). Paul also writes to the saints of the church which is at Corinth, confessing to them that he is the least of the apostle, who am not worthy to be called an apostle because he persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God, i am an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ and an overseer of His Churches (1-Cor.15:9-10). God, want's to change your life just as He changed Saul's, who is no longer called Saul, but Paul. God’s grace can erase an evil past, and change a wicked heart and like Saul, all we have to do is cry out what must I do Lord to be saved?
 
God’s life-changing grace does more than change hearts; this is what God was able to accomplish By Working with Paul after his conversion (Mk.16:15-20).
Paul laid hands on the Disciples, and they all received the Holy Spirit (Acts.19:6). Not only did Paul heal the sick, but God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out from them
(Acts.19:11-12). How about you, won't you let God work unusual miracles by your hands? All you have to do is ask Jesus what must I do to receive eternal life and watch Him work miracles in your life. 
 
Saul’s encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus was a life changing experience for him. First, a bright light from heaven surrounded Saul. Then he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? Sometimes before God can get our attention like Saul, He has to knock us down and blind us before we Cry out to Him for help.
(Acts.9:1-5). Saul asked the Lord a question that every sinner should ask saying,  Lord, what must I do to receive eternal life? After Saul’s conversion he was no longer know by the name of Saul, but instead, now, he is recognized by the name of Paul, who became one of the greatest preachers in the world.
 
As wicked as Saul was to Christians, God still had a Divine purpose for Saul’s life, you see, the disciples being prejudice, preached the word to no one but the Jews only (Acts.11:1-19), because it was unlawful for a Jewish man to keep company with or go to another nation (Please read Acts.10:1-48). But, God desires that all men and woman, be saved regardless of their nationality (1-Tim.2:1-4), (Jn.3:16). So, Jesus speaks to Ananias, a Disciple from Damascus, saying to him: Arise and inquire at the house of Judas For one called Saul of Tarsus, for behold, he is praying. In a vision, this wicked man named Saul, saw Ananias coming in and putting his hands on him so that he might receive his sight (Acts.9:10-12).  Because of Saul’s past wickedness, Ananias refuses, but Jesus said to him go, for Saul is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, Kings, and the children of Israel (Acts.9:13-16). God was about to take a man with a wicked past, and use him for His divine purpose. This evil man named Saul was about to learn firsthand about God’s Divine grace.
