O Merciful Father, bless everyone that reads this prayer. May those that read it "Go" and tell, or e-mail it to their friends and enemies so that all will be encouraged by Your Word. The conclusion of this prayer is simple: Trust and serve the Lordonly; read your Bible daily; commune with Him in complete silence to be alone with Him; live the life of a godly Christianbecause you're an Ambassador--representative of GodHis child. Whenever you get the slightest chance to evangelize do so without forcing it on someone that doesn't want to listen. Remember, we cannot be of service to the Lord if we are not in His will. In Jesus name I pray. Amen. - Rev. Lynwood f. Mundy

When we reach the hill-tops of heaven, and look back upon all the way whereby the Lord our God hath led us, how we shall praise him who, before the eternal throne, undid the mischief which Satan was doing upon earth. How shall we thank him becausehe n…

January 11: The Kingdom of Heaven is Like …
Matthew 13:44–14:36

Few in the world have sold everything to pursue an idea. Yet Jesus claims those who discover the kingdom of heaven are willing to do so. “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, that a man found and concealed, and in his joy he goes and sells everything that he has and buys that field” (Matt 13:44). It seems that hardly any of us are equally willing to give up everything for the sake of the kingdom of heaven.
The realization that Jesus has brought the kingdom of heaven to earth presents us with a choice. Will we decide that His kingdom is worth more than all things, or will we devalue it by equating it with worldly treasures?
There are many types of currency, not just money: reputation, occupational status, and social media popularity are just a few. But the kingdom is much more than material or monetary ideas. It’s about giving our gifts, thoughts, and wealth. It’s about being willing to sacrifice everyt…
