Partakers Friday Prayers

16th June 2017

 

We pray together and when Christians pray together, including across the internet and from different times, different nations, different churches and different denominations - that reveals Church unity!

 

 

Behold, Lord,

I am an empty vessel that needs to be filled.

My Lord, fill it.

I am weak in the faith;

strengthen me.

I am cold in love;

warm me and make me fervent,

that my love may go out to my neighbour.

I do not have a strong and firm faith;

at times I doubt and am unable to trust you altogether.

O Lord, help me.

Strengthen my faith and trust in you.

In you I have sealed the treasure of all I have.

I am poor;

you are rich and came to be merciful to the poor.

I am a sinner; you are upright.

With me, there is an abundance of sin;

in you is the fullness of righteousness.

Therefore I will will remain with you,

of whom I can receive,

but to whom I may not give.

Amen


(A prayer of Martin Luther)

Alfie brings you a WOW Word

 

WOW Word - Growing as a Christian

 

~

Today Alfie talks about the WOW Word - Growing!

~

Galatians 5:16-26 - "So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.”

What is the response of a Christian to be to these words of Jesus?

Let Alphy the WOWChurch cat explain to you!

POD - Psalm 50

Psalm 50

A Psalm by Asaph.
50:1 The Mighty One, God, Yahweh, speaks, and calls the earth from sunrise to sunset.
50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.
50:3 Our God comes, and does not keep silent. A fire devours before him. It is very stormy around him.
50:4 He calls to the heavens above, to the earth, that he may judge his people:
50:5 “Gather my saints together to me, those who have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.”
50:6 The heavens shall declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge.
Selah.

50:7 “Hear, my people, and I will speak; Israel, and I will testify against you. I am God, your God.
50:8 I don’t rebuke you for your sacrifices. Your burnt offerings are continually before me.
50:9 I have no need for a bull from your stall, nor male goats from your pens.
50:10 For every animal of the forest is mine, and the livestock on a thousand hills.
50:11 I know all the birds of the mountains. The wild animals of the field are mine.
50:12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it.
50:13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
50:14 Offer to God the sacrifice of thanksgiving. Pay your vows to the Most High.
50:15 Call on me in the day of trouble. I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”
50:16 But to the wicked God says, “What right do you have to declare my statutes, that you have taken my covenant on your lips,
50:17 since you hate instruction, and throw my words behind you?
50:18 When you saw a thief, you consented with him, and have participated with adulterers.
50:19 “You give your mouth to evil. Your tongue frames deceit.
50:20 You sit and speak against your brother. You slander your own mother’s son.
50:21 You have done these things, and I kept silent. You thought that I was just like you. I will rebuke you, and accuse you in front of your eyes.
50:22 “Now consider this, you who forget God, lest I tear you into pieces, and there be none to deliver.
50:23 Whoever offers the sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifies me, and prepares his way so that I will show God’s salvation to him.”

Think Spot 12 June 2017

As part of our living as followers of Jesus, here is something which has the capability of affecting every person on the planet.

Jesus, our Master, said in Matthew 12:36-37 But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgement for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Jesus took words and thoughts extremely seriously. Jesus’ words encouraged others gently towards paths of right living. He spoke words of love, kindness, rebuke, forgiveness, encouragement and blessing upon and to others. Jesus is to be our guide and Master in the use of thoughts and words.

In Matthew 5:21-22, Jesus equates calling somebody a fool with the physical act of murder. Murder has its beginning in anger developing into uncontrollable rage. Improper attitudes, words and thoughts can lead you and I to sin if we don’t stop their destructive use quickly. May the words we communicate and think about, be like those of Jesus – “full of grace”. How is your WOW factor of Jesus now?

When Jesus Christ called you to follow Him, He called you to follow Him wholeheartedly and be committed to only Him. Jesus calls you and I, to love God and be totally committed to Him.

Here is a brief prayer to help us into the new week.

Father, help us this week to be totally committed to you in all aspects of our lives. May those we live with, work with and interact with, know we are your child by the words we speak. We ask this, through the mighty name of your Son, Jesus and in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Exploring The Bible

19. New Testament

Galatians - A.D. 49-50

 

G'day and welcome to our series, "Exploring the Bible" This is also the title of our latest book available on Amazon by clicking here or visiting PulpTheology.com

Key Verses:

  • Galatians 2:20 / Galatians 5:25

 

Paul is furious at the way Peter has allowed a division to appear amongst the Christians in Galatia. Is salvation purely a grace gift, as Paul taught, or does it partly depend on belonging to the correct people group, the Jews? Galatians centres on the conflict between those two teachings.

Paul emphasises that the Christian must have faith in Jesus’ work on the cross as the only means of salvation, rather than thinking he must also be a slave to the Jewish Law. He defends the gospel of grace, explains it and then applies it to the Christian walk by saying it is the believer’s responsibility to serve others.
