A prayer for you

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.

Congratulations

Happy Anniversary 
Robert Johnson

Love your enemies>>>>>>>>>>>>

Regardless if someone is a believer or an unbeliever one thing is clear, we all have enemies. We may have enemies at work. An enemy might be a neighbor or someone in the church. Most often an enemy can be found in one’s household.

Jesus and the apostle Paul had enemies, their enemies tried to kill them, yet Jesus said, love your enemies. If your enemy is hungry feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink (Rom.12:20). Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, said Jesus.
Why would Jesus tell us to love someone who hates or mistreats us? Jesus said if you love only those who love you, how are you different from unbelievers, if you do the same things they do?

When a Christian loves his enemy, it is his or her testimony to the world that not only are they followers of Christ, but that they are also sons and daughters of the Lord(Matt.5:43-48).

The Grace of God

God had His eye on a young man named Saul. The Lord was not watching Saul, because he was a sinner, or well educated, or not even because he was a Pharisee and well versed in the Jewish religion (Act 26:1-5). No, my friend,’ God was not watching Saul to punish him because he was walking contrary to the Name of Christ. God was not even tracking Saul because he confessed that he was the chief of sinners, and persecuting the churches of God, punishing both men, woman, and children, killing some who believed in the name of Jesus (Acts.26:9-11).
Contraire to popular belief God does not hunt down sinners to destroy them, but rather to save them (Matt.9:10-13). The Bible says that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Rom.3:23). Even though Saul was the chief of sinners, and subjecting God’s people to cruel and unfair treatment because of their religious beliefs, and even consenting to the murders of innocent Christians, yet, God saw something in Saul, He could use for good. What did the Lord see in Saul? God saw how Fervently Saul pursued Christians, and how he wholehearted chased them down. 

What if, Saul would pursue sinners with the same energy and determination as he tracked down the innocent believers? What God saw in Saul was a spiritual messenger, someone He could send to the Jewish people, as well as to the Gentile nation. To open the eyes of these two nations, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Jesus (Acts.26:16-18). Like Saul, sometimes before God can use men and woman He has to knock them down (Acts 26:14), but do not be shaken by God’s chastening because the Bible says, whom the Lord loves He chastens (Heb.12:5-13).

Saul was a sinner and a murder, yet God chose to use him in the ministry (1-Tim.1:12). God’s chose of people to serve in His ministry should be a reminder to the rest of us sinners, that is, we do not have to be a saint to be used by God, but we must heed the Lord’s voice when he calls us (Acts.26:19). Like Saul, sometimes when we serve the Lord, it may entail suffering. God said Saul must suffer many things for His sake (Acts.9:13-19). God told Ananias to lay hands on brother Saul, and when Ananias obeyed the Lord, Saul's eyes opened, and he received the Holy Spirit (Acts.9:17). In Ananias’ day, Saul was called Saul, but in our day, we call Saul the apostle Paul (Acts.13:9). God took a sinner like Saul, knock him to the ground, blinded him, then showered him with grace and led a preacher named Ananias to brother Saul, so Ananias could pray for him. When Ananias laid hands on Saul, he received the Holy Spirit. The apostle Paul never once disappointed God who had called him out of darkness and into His marvelous light (1-Cor.15:8-10).  
Saul confessed that like us (Rom.3:23), he too was not worthy to be called an apostle because he persecuted the church of God (1-Cor.15:9). Saul also said it was not by his works, but by the grace of God
that he is a minister of the Gospel of Christ (Rom.15:15-16). God took an unrighteous man named Saul, and by Grace made Him righteous. How about you, The apostle Paul said the same grace that saved his life is available to anyone who will receive Jesus as their Savior.
