Statement of Confession: I believe in the Trinity--Father, Son and Holy Spirit; The Three are One in the Father. I believe that Jesus is the Savior to those that accept Him in genuine repentance of their sins through faith as their Lord and Savior. I believe that baptism--immersion, burial--is an outward show to the world of their acceptance of salvation by Jesus for His dying, resurrection and His sitting at the right hand of the Father in heaven. This ministry is FREE.
Happy Mother'sDay! from Daily, Weekend and Holiday Internet Evangelize to the World Ministry Prayer Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy Heavenly Father, thank You for this day, and especially, for the celebration of our mother's pass and present. In Jesus name. Amen.

1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. LUKE 4:14–21
14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.

Lesson for May 11, 2014Jesus’ Mission on Earth Leviticus 25:8-55; Isaiah 61; Luke 4:14-21 This treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD.
______ By Sam E. Stone Each Gospel adds details and insights that help us better understand the broad ministry of Jesus. Lynn Gardner reminds us, “Luke omitted many events that occurred after Jesus’ baptism and temptation and before his preaching ministry in Galilee (Luke 4:14ff). These events are described in John 1:19–4:42.” Luke describes Jesus’ traveling and teaching ministry in Galilee, where he not only performed miracles but also preached with authority and love. ProphecyIsaiah 61:1-3Isaiah 61 begins with words of the Servant-Redeemer. It continues the predictions of the glory of Zion from chapter 60. William Fitch wrote, “The subject is once again the city of God and the people of God as fulfilling the divine purpose. The mission of this Servant is . . . threefold: to annou…

May 11 Being Good at What MattersJudges 20:1–21:25; Philippians 4:21–23; Psalm 72:1–20
Though prayer is important, it’s an area of our faith lives that we often neglect. But people of great faith in the Bible relied on prayer—and not just for difficult situations. From general direction to specific details, they turned everything over to prayer. God spoke to them directly, they listen, and then they act.
Maybe you don’t believe God speaks directly to you. If that’s the case, consider why you think this way. Why wouldn’t He want to speak to you? He chose you by sending His own [Son]to die for you. Jesus, that [Son], said that God would come and speak to you (John 17). You’re important to God, and He wants to talk to you—to know you.
In Judges, we find a situation where people relied on God not just for direction, but for details. The Israelites rose up against the tribe of Benjamin because they refused to address the wickedness among them (Judg 20:12–14). But before entering battle, the…
