This is the day that the Lord has created, and blessed each of us through his eternal grace and mercies of which none of us are worthy. Did you STOP to thank Him in your personal supplication not waiting to get to the church and someone else pray for you? You may not get to the church, because you may have a debilitating sickness to occur, an accident or death. As you have read, the next moment is not promise to you. Pray always and thank God for His grace and mercies He bestows upon you all the day long.
Lord, God Almighty, bless the sick, those in the operating rooms, incarcerated and serving in the Armed Forces. Anoint all in sickness or in health from the crown of their heads to the soles of their feet with Your divine healing and protection. In Jesus' name. Amen.

To all, have a blessed Lord's Day.

the International Sunday School Lesson

Lesson for October 18, 2015
Peter Preached to GentilesActs 10:1-44Dr. Mark Scott wrote this treatment of the InternationalSunday School Lesson. Scott teaches preaching and New Testament at Ozark Christian College, Joplin, Missouri, and has held preaching ministries in Missouri, Illinois, and Colorado. This lesson treatment is published in the October 11 issue of The Lookoutmagazine, and is also available online at www.lookoutmag.com. ______ By Mark Scott  Reading the book of Acts is like throwing a pebble in a pool of water and watching the ripple effect. The circles keep getting wider. When Peter preached to the Jews on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2) that was the first ripple. When Peter confirmed Philip’s ministry in Samaria (Acts 8) that was the second ripple. Here Peter preached to the Gentiles, which is a third ripple. Clearly God’s aim to save all the nations of the world (Genesis 12:1-3) was coming to fulfillment. Acts 10:1–11:18 is one literary unit. It concerns the gospel going to…
