(prayer meeting from Thursday July 28, 2016)
Good morning to you all!
I have noticed by last week’s email many are still on leave. I hope all is well and that God keeps you safe and returns you home refreshed.
As we look farther into James, I would like to put up a question to you… in the 3rdchapter, passage 1 to 5 why would your judgment be stricter as a “perfect” Christian (perfect here meaning mature) than just a follower of Christ with good works?
As in the military; leadership imposes responsibility, so think of the question and how it pertains to you. Do you teach? Are your words equal to your actions? Think of last week’s email…
‘Father”, my loving Father, please show me what I need to see in your word; help me to speak through my works and not to practice in this way: “do as I say but not as I do”. Give me the wisdom to teach if that is what you call on me to do, or to hold my tongue if I can’t follow your plan. My Father, I love you and want to see all the greatness of your word, so allow me to say what is needed and to always teach it in your son’s name, Christ Jesus…Amen
Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS…
So as we go through our day let us go out to help and to care for all that need it in… Jesus name…Amen!
