Reblogging this from Patricia/ Loopy’s. Prayer request for a troubled sister in Christ. When we pull together as His body we lift one another up but most importantly we glorify Him and reflect His glory on those around us. Amen?
Amen and amen!
when we all shall hear,
each creature singing,
of the Lord, who’s near.
All those in heaven,
and all too, on earth;
sing of His praises,
and His matchless worth.
Seated on the throne,
God’s own holy Lamb;
all offered to Him,
glorious I Am.
All praise and honor,
power and glory;
may we forever,
speak of His story.
Imagine the day,
when we see His face;
held in His embrace.
Oh Lord, let our lives,
be sweet offering;
let our days be spent,
honoring You, King.
“Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing; ‘To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” – (Revelation 5:13)
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You…

Mom found an old man (by her terms…and she’s 85) who had fallen up the street in front of a door of one of our neighborhood houses. She isn’t strong enough to help him so I went up to try. There I found a confused and disoriented gentleman, clearly elderly, sitting on the ground in front of a front door.
I tried to get a handle…

Aw, love this!
Wow. eye opening!
This survey by the Barna Group is worth a glance if it causes us to reflect on who others see in us; Jesus or Pharisee?
By the time I had made it through the article I was questioning some of my own attitudes and actions. As much as I didn’t want to admit it, it appears there may be a little more Pharisee residing in this heart of mine than Kingdom living allows. Here’s a sampling, and the entire article with some neat charts can be found here.
Actions like Jesus:
- I listen to others to learn their story before telling them about my faith.
- In recent years, I have influenced multiple people to consider following Christ.
- I regularly choose to have meals with people with very different faith or morals from me.
- I try to discover the needs of non-Christians rather than waiting for them to come to me.
