My Prayer for Today

Lord, thank You for watching over all of us this weekend. Now that we are given Your love, grace and mercy to see this moment, I pray to those that think that they awoke themselves that it was by Your grace and mercy that we live for this moment; for the next moment is not freely given, but, because it is Your Will that we live or die. I pray that we pray thanking You each moment that we live. Show your love this moment to the Lord, because He is due it if you actually love Him. Valentin's Day is days away and may not come if God sends the Death Angel to you, or, if He sends Jesus--The Second Advent. Pray now, and every day, thanking God for life, health, infirmities, family, jobs or even unemployment, and your church family. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.  - Min. Lynwood F. Mundy

         — Acts 4:13

A Christian should be a striking likeness of Jesus Christ. You have read lives of Christ, beautifully and eloquently written, but the best life of Christ is his living biography, written out in the words and actions of his people.  If we were what we profess to be, and what we should be, we should be pictures of Christ; yea, such striking likenesses of him, that the world would not have to hold us up by the hour together, and say, “Well, it seems somewhat of a likeness;” but they would, when they once beheld us, exclaim, “He has been with Jesus; he has been taught of him; he is like him; he has caught the very idea of the holy Man of Nazareth, and he works it out in his life and every-day actions.” A Christian should be like Christ in his boldness. Never blush to own your religion; your profession will never disgrace you: take care you never di…

God’s Will: It’s Confusing

February 11: God’s Will: It’s Confusing
Exodus 26:1–27:21

It’s sometimes difficult to understand why God does what He does, or why He asks us to do certain things. God goes so far as to listing precise materials and calculations in Exodus 26 for the tabernacle—the portable temple the Hebrew people built for God in the wilderness. You can imagine the conversation:
Nadab says, “Aaron, is it okay if I use leather for this curtain?”
Aaron responds, “No, you know the rules. If God commands it, you have to do it. I don’t want another golden calf incident. I made that mistake once; I won’t make it twice.”
“But there is more leather,” says Nadab.
“I’m not having this discussion any longer,” Aaron says sternly. “Let’s just get the job done.” (“For an elder, you think he would know better,” Aaron says under his breath.)
Aaron, in this fictional scene, is rightfully frustrated because God does know better. Most of us know the answer before we ask God, “Why?” But we ask Him anyway. God’s will can …
