Gospel Wednesday: Luke Chapter 5

Luke Chapter 5
“And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Je…

Sacred Truth Friday: Reflect His Beauty

Today's devo

"Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.

Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭33:1, 3-4‬ ‭KJV‬‬,3-4.kjv

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:22-23‬ ‭KJV‬‬

The world has physical standards for beauty. But God has a better way. Live in obedience and adoration to Him. Let Him shine through you. And fill you with the fruit of His Spirit which is love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, self control. When we radiate God's beauty others will be attracted to Him. Desiring to know more about Him. Our lives, as New Testament Christians, can be a testimony of the beauty and grace of God. Let's make it our goal to …

Gospel Wednesday: Luke Chapter 4

“And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered. And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, a…

Sacred Truth Friday: How We React

Today's devo

We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭78:4-7‬ ‭KJV‬‬

People are watching us. Watching New Testament Christians. To see how we react not only in times of joy, but sorrow as well. Will we react with distrust in God and despair when hard times come, or will we react with unwavering faith and devotion to God, thereby drawing people to Him? As for me, I will react with faith before all, even during hard times. My life c…

Gospel Wednesday: Luke Chapter 3

Luke Chapter 3
“Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene, Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins; As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from th…
