Prayer

Prayer By: Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy    Thank You Heavenly Father for this day that You have created just for me [us]. Thank you that we all can worship You in holiness this Lords Day.    For those that cannot get to their places of worship, I pray that they look to this web blog:  http://lfmundy2002.blogspot.com/ for all of their days worship services from the International KJV Sunday School Lesson, to the major church Lectionary services.    I pray for the sick, shut-ins, hospitalized, incarcerated, those in abusive marriages, and relationships of which YHWH does not condone--because, it is without the sanctity of His commanent for man and woman to be married. Father, bless our men and women in war zones serving our Armed Forces. And lastly, bless Israel Your holy seat upon Your return, and Your Jewish chosen people from its Abrab's enimies. Especially now, the evil Hamas militant faction of the Arab world. May Israel's Jewish peoples enemies know that no enemie(s) can withstand …

July 27 Lesson 9 SEEK THE GOOD OF OTHERS
DEVOTIONAL READING: Titus 3:8–14 BACKGROUND SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 14:13–26

1 CORINTHIANS 14:13–26

13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.
14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.
15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
16 Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest?
17 For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified.
18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:
19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.
20 Brethren, be not children in understanding: howb…

Lesson based on International Sunday School Lesson

Lesson July 27, 2014Seek the Good of Others1 Corinthians 14:13-26This treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD. It is published in the July 20 issue of The Lookout magazine, and is also available online at www.lookoutmag.com. ______ By Sam E. Stone  From the day that the church began in Jerusalem, God endowed certain members with miraculous gifts. These were needed in that day. When the apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, they began to preach in tongues (Acts 2:6-11). These were languages that they did not know and had not studied. As they preached, the people who were gathered there from many different countries could each understand the apostolic message in their own language. J. W. McGarvey wrote, “Speaking with tongues was not an incoherent, meaningless jargon uttered by the speaker in ecstatic rhapsody, nor was it ‘spiritual language unknown to man, uttered in ecstasy.’ The seco…

The Tricks We Play on Ourselves
2 Samuel 18:1–33; 2 Peter 2:12–22; Psalm 144:1–15

A great deal of leadership is based on consistency. King David is a prime example: He struggled most when he was inconsistent.

David’s son, Absalom, committed horrific acts against David and others (2 Sam 14–17). David repeatedly responded in a manner un-befitting a king, finally sending men out to destroy Absalom’s troops (2 Sam 18:1–4). As the troops headed out, he ordered his commanders—within hearing of the army—to “deal gently” with Absalom (2 Sam 18:5). With this order, David again acted beneath his role and duty as king: He asked for the leader of a rebellion to be spared—essentially using his own warriors as pawns in a game to regain his fallen son. Absalom didn’t deserve to be dealt with gently; he was a ruthless, terrorizing dictator and had opposed God’s chosen king. His time was up. For this reason, and perhaps others, Joab, one of David’s commanders, chose to kill Absalom (2 Sam 18:14)…
