The Gift of Hospitality - Part 8

All the gifts must be bathed in prayer. Often while in prayer I will receive clearer understanding as to the Lord’s specific purposes at work through the gifts. The first time I was aware of the gift of knowledge I had been simply enjoying the quiet of the presence of the Lord. http://ping.fm/DzYfL

?Sunday Prayer?

Fill our home, Lord, with Yourself. Let us give to those who come, You. He comes, this Guest, externally in the rooms and internally in our souls. Here He is in His immanence and in His transcendence.

The Immanent Guest - Part 7

We need to point one another to the Lord with the confidence that He indeed can teach each of us what it is we need. We must come to cherish our own experience, but not to the point of insisting that others duplicate it. We must delight in the unique way God calls each of us to holiness, and realize that His works among the children of men are as different from one another as the stars are from the sands of the seas. http://ping.fm/O9xRf

The Immanent Guest - Part 3

“All who keep his commandments abide in him, and he in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit which he has given us.” This is the basic premise: The Holy Spirit dwells within each Christian. http://ping.fm/xHU6B

The Role Of The Holy Spirit In Our Lives

When we have yielded ourselves in obedience to our Lord, opened our lives to the indwelling of His Spirit, and pleaded to be purified by the fire of His Presence, we discover with delight that He has endowed us with marvelous tools to aid us in our missions. http://ping.fm/KRypH

High School Reunion

We remember those, friends and companions, who have been in our midst, but who are now gone. We thank you for the part of their lives that we have shared, however brief or however joyful. Let us remind ourselves, because of them, that each day is a gift, not a promise, to be lived as beautifully as possible within our abilities and our means. http://ping.fm/2P4vl

Prayer for Today

O God, help us to hear, to hear those cries without fear for ourselves, and with compassion for those who mourn. Help us to listen to those in need, without thought for our own material treasures. Help us to seek to be like Christ, upon whom was the Spirit of the Lord.
