Times of Prayer
Early this morning I listened to a song about the great love of our Father allowing His Son to die on the cross. As I closed my eyes in quiet reverence and worship I realized that even if I was the only person on earth Jesus would have still shed His blood for me. I echo the words of the Psalmist when he says “SUCH KNOWLEDGE IS TOO WONDERFUL FOR ME”
It therefore pains me when I hear believers say as long as they went to church to get their blessing it is okay. Yes we will never deny the fact that everyone has needs and the Lord is gracious to meet them but meeting together goes far beyond having needs met but a time of coming together to hear and discuss Kingdom affairs, to receive instruction and the revelation of the Word of God to grow in Christ likeness. It is a time to admonish and encourage one another so that when the Father looks at us He will say that He (Christ) is altogether lovely.
May our experience in Christ never cause us to be silent but like the man who said John 5:11 He answered them, "He who made me well said to me, 'Take up your bed and walk.'"
The man at the pool of Siloam John 9:25 He answered and said, "Whether He is a sinner or not I do not know. One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see."
The apostle Paul Phil 3:7-8 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord,
I pray that we will continue becoming instruments in the hand of the Lord, cast our bread (the Word of God) on the waters to see the Gospel of the Kingdom reach every tribe, tongue and nation.
1 Chron 16:23-24 Sing to the LORD, all the earth; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.
