Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Your Name - Sunday's Dose - 7th February 2016

Sunday's Dose - 7th February 2016

Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Your Name

Today's Scripture

“O Lord God Almighty, who is like you? You are mighty, O Lord, and your faithfulness surrounds you” - (Psalm 89:8).

Thoughts for Today

Imagine that you have been granted an audience with the king. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for—the chance to bring your requests before his majesty. The great doors open, and you are standing before the throne. In awe and reverence, you first address the king. It would be improper to just begin asking for your needs.

Jesus instructed His disciples, “This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name’” (Matthew 6:9).

The dictionary defines hallow as “to make or set apart as holy.” God is holy. He is sovereign and omniscient. He is the King of kings, the Creator of the universe. When we place our faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, He becomes our heavenly Father. As such, we have the honor and the privilege of being able to come to Him in prayer.

It is important that we know the character of God, and honor and revere Him in our prayers, actions, and thoughts. God’s character is pure, holy, flawless, loving, compassionate, righteous, just, merciful, kind, long-suffering, honest, true, dependable, faithful, and understanding.

The more we know about God, the more we grow in fellowship with Him. This carries over into our prayers. Placing Him first and foremost in our minds keeps our focus on Him instead of on our needs and desires.

However, Jesus did not intend for our prayers to become ritualistic. Nor does He tell us how to pray. But by beginning with God’s name, we are reminded that we are coming before Almighty God. As children of God, we have been given free access to the throne room of the King of kings. We can address the King as our Father. There is no greater honor!

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father God, 
Thank You for inviting me into Your presence. I praise You as King of kings and Lord of lords and also thank You for being my Father. There is no one like You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.

Citizen of God's Kingdom - Friday's Dose - 5th February 2016

Friday's Dose - 5th February 2016

Citizen of God's Kingdom

Today's Scripture

"The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil" - (1 Peter 3:12).

Thoughts for Today

There are two kingdoms—the kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world. When we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are adopted into the Kingdom of God.

Being a citizen of a country means you have special privileges. These vary from country to country. However, as a citizen of God's Kingdom, we become members of the royal family. We are joint heirs with Christ. We have access to the throne of God. We have personal fellowship with the King of kings. We are His beloved children.

In order to become a citizen of a country other than the one in which you are born, you must meet certain requirements. The kingdom of God requires its citizens to accept the reign of a wise and loving King. It means acknowledging Christ as our Lord and Savior. It means being obedient to the Word of God. It requires our saying, "Lord, not my will, but Yours be done."

Human nature is selfish. What we think we need is foremost in our actions and prayers. Prayer that revolves around our own plans, desires, and needs, however, can be contrary to God's Word.

When we surrender our lives to Christ and submit ourselves to Him, we are placing our will in submission to the Lord's. Thus we begin to pray, "Lord, reign in my life, dominate my thoughts, show me Your will."

Within each of us rages the war between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world. With Christ we have the victory. Knowing this, press on, armed with the confidence that God hears us and will answer our prayers.

Prayer:Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
I thank You for making a way for me to pass from the kingdom of this world into the Kingdom of God. Thank You for the victory I always have in Christ. I pray I will be bold and courageous always in You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, 

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.

Intimate Relationship with Jesus - Thursday's Dose - 4th February 2016

Thursday's Dose - 4th February 2016

Intimate Relationship with Jesus

Today's Scripture

“No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.” - John 15:15 NASB.

Thoughts for Today

To Thomas à Kempis, Jesus was not just a person from history or the founder of a religion. He was his Friend.

In his book, The Imitation of Christ, Kempis wrote about the intimate relationship he had developed with Jesus and how often he talked with the Lord. It was his burden that others enjoy the same relationship, realizing how wonderful it was to know Him personally and fellowship with Him intimately.

Kempis asked, “What can the world offer you, without Jesus? To be without Jesus is hell most grievous; to be with Jesus is to know the sweetness of Heaven.”

To Kempis, knowing Jesus was the greatest reward in life: “Whoever finds Jesus, finds a rich treasure, and a good above every good. He who loses Jesus loses much indeed; and more than the whole world. Poorest of all men is he who lives without Jesus, and richest of all is he who stands in favor with Jesus.”

In our time, many people talk about Jesus. Many have read about Him. But how many are experiencing an intimate relationship with Him? Few realize that Jesus actually wants to be their Friend and share a personal relationship that will transform their lives.

Today, ask yourself if Jesus is real to you. Do you think of Him merely as a person from history? Or is He your best Friend? How often do you talk with Him? How much time do you devote to your relationship with Him?

Learn what transformed the life of Thomas à Kempis. Spend time with Jesus. Read His words. Talk with Him. Listen to His voice. Seek His presence. Commit your needs to Him. Fellowship with Him. He loves you and wants to be your dearest Friend.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Thank You that You came to die for my sins. I want to know You more intimately. Show me Your ways. I commit my life to You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.

My Son's Friend - A Touching Story - A Must Read

After a few of the usual Sunday evening hymns, the church's pastor slowly stood up, walked over to the pulpit and, before he gave his sermon for the evening, briefly introduced a guest minister who was in the service that evening. In the introduction, the pastor told the congregation that the guest minister was one of his dearest childhood friends and that he wanted him to have a few moments to greet the church and share whatever he felt would be appropriate for the service.

With that, an elderly man stepped up to the pulpit and began to speak. "A father, his son, and a friend of his son were sailing off the Pacific Coast," he began, "when a fast approaching storm blocked any attempt to get back to shore. The waves were so high that, even though the father was an experienced sailor, he could not keep the boat upright, and the three were swept into the ocean as the boat capsized."

The old man hesitated for a moment, making eye contact with two teenagers who were, for the first time since the service began, looking somewhat interested in the story. The aged minister continued with his story. "Grabbing a rescue line, the father had to make the most excruciating decision of his life: to which boy he would throw the other end of the life line. He only had seconds to make the decision. The father knew that his son was a Christian, and he also knew that his son's friend was not. The agony of his decision could not be matched by the torrent of the waves. As the father yelled out, 'I love you, son!', he threw out the life line to the son's friend. By the time the father had pulled the friend back to the capsized boat, his son had disappeared beneath the raging swells into the black of night. His body was never recovered."

By this time, the two teenagers were sitting up straight in the pew, anxiously waiting for the next words to come out of the old minister's mouth. "The father," he continued, "knew his son would step into eternity with Jesus, and he could not bear the thought of his son's friend stepping into an eternity without Jesus. Therefore, he sacrificed his son to save the son's friend. How great is the love of God that He could do the same for us. Our heavenly Father sacrificed His only begotten Son that we could be saved. I urge you to accept His offer to rescue you and take hold of the life line."

With that, the old man turned and sat back down in his chair as silence filled the room. The pastor again walked slowly to the pulpit and delivered a brief sermon with an invitation at the end. However, no one responded to the appeal. Within minutes after the service, the two teenagers were at the old man's side. "That was a nice story," politely said one of the boys, "but I don't think it was very realistic for a father to give up his only son's life in hopes that the other boy would become a Christian."

"Well, you've got a point there," the old man replied, glancing down at his worn Bible. Sorrow began to overtake the old man's smiling face as he once again looked up at the boys and said, "It sure isn't very realistic, is it? But I'm here today to tell you that I understand more than most the pain God must have felt to give up His only Son. For you see, I'm the man who lost his son to the ocean that day, and my son's friend that I chose to save is your pastor."
