My sister’s pastor said in his sermon a few weeks ago that when someone asks you to give them 5, you say these 5 points. Wait faithfully. Rise and thank God for food (Matthew 14:19), salvation (1 Peter 1:3-5) and also for everything we have (Ephesians 5:20). Pray expectantly (Hebrews 4:16). Speak kindly (Ephesians 4:29).Continue reading “Gimme 5”

Let’s show others what a life completely surrendered to the Lord can bring. Let’s be the functioning ones in a world of disfunction, the hopeful ones in a world full of hopelessness, the loving ones in a world full of selfishness. We need to truly embody Christ in our words and thoughts, and actions.

Lord God, please loose the power of forgiveness in my mind over this matter. I agree with Your word, which says, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Help us Lord to humble ourselves and consider each others needs above our own. Let us exemplify Your love and power on this earth. I pray that Your will would be done here.
