January 17th – The Miracle of Unity

Matthew 5:43-48 43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing…

January 16th- Sons and Daughters

Galatians 4:1-7 1 I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, 2 but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. 3 In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. 4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.…

January 15th- Intimacy with Each Other – Free to Forgive

Genesis 50:19–20 But Joseph replied, “Don’t be afraid of me.  Am I God, that I can punish you?  You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good.” Forgiveness is a unique thought in the times in which we live.  In our uptight culture of road rage, cyber-bullying, and ridiculous lawsuits, we prize revenge as a virtue.  I don’t remember when I last saw a movie celebrating forgiveness.  Payback is the story our culture likes to see. We’ve all been hurt by someone.  We’ve all been taken advantage of.  We’ve all been insulted.  We’ve all been attacked in…

January 14th – Intimacy to Action

Luke 19:1-10 1 He entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus.  He was a chief tax collector and was rich. 3 And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small in stature. 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must…

January 13th- Intimacy with Each Other – An Unlikely Brotherhood

1 Samuel 18:  1-4  New International Version (NIV) 18 After David had finished talking with Saul, Jonathan became one in spirit with David, and he loved him as himself. 2 From that day Saul kept David with him and did not let him return home to his family. 3 And Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as himself.4 Jonathan took off the robe he was wearing and gave it to David, along with his tunic, and even his sword, his bow and his belt. Ecclesiastes 4:12 “A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”  We count it as TRUE JOY to be part of the…

January 12th – Do you need a Miracle?

Psalms 107:21-22 “Let them praise the Lord for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them. Let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving and sing joyfully about his glorious acts.” What is a miracle? Here’s a simple definition:  Something that God must do for you that is out of the realm of your own capabilities. For example: You can brush your teeth, you can brush and comb your hair, and you can drive a car if you have a driver’s license.  Jesus doesn’t have to do those things for you.  On the contrary,  when tragedy happens…

January 11th, 2019 – Pennies from Heaven – by Lynette Camon

Jehovah Jireh – “The Lord Will Provide” Job 5:9 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. Isaiah 4:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. As we grow in a relationship with our Father, God, we learn that He covers every area of  our lives. He sees and knows all things concerning our needs. Remembering is very important. It brings back to mind what has happened and  what…

January 10th – Intimacy with God – Wearing a Crown

Isaiah 65:24 24 Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear. Psalm 50:15 15 Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.” Ephesians 3:14-19 14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a]in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp…

January 9th: Intimacy with God – The Bride of Christ

Ephesians 5:25 (ESV) Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.a 28In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30because we are members of…

January 8th- Freed from Condemnation

Romans 8: 1-4 8 So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One.[a] 2 For the “law” of the Spirit of life flowing through the anointing of Jesus has liberated us[b]from the “law” of sin and death. 3 For God achieved what the law was unable to accomplish, because the law was limited by the weakness of human nature.[c] Yet God sent us his Son in human form to identify with human weakness. Clothed with humanity, God’s Son gave his body to be the sin-offering so that God could once…
