Next to Jesus


Luke 11:13

If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to our children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask for him.

What of Today’s Verse…

Think of all the great gifts you have been given.  Next to Jesus, the gracious sacrifice for our salvation, the greatest gift we can receive is God’s abiding presence in the Holy Spirit!  He is ours if we ask. In fact, when we ask, he is already there interceding for us!

Let us Pray:

Abba Father, through the precious Holy Spirit I come before you asking you to empower me, my loved ones, and my church through the power of the Holy Spirit.  I pray for renewal to sweep my country and this world led by your Spirit of grace, power, and love.  Through Jesus, the giver of this great gift I pray.  Amen.’

Words of Wisdom

Preserved to Work’s End

Are you a witness for the Lord, and are you just now in danger?  Then remember that you are immortal until your work is done. If the Lord has more witness for you to bear, you will live to bear it.  Who is he that can break the vessel, which the Lord intends again to use?

If there is no more work for you to do for your Master, it cannot distress you that He is about to take you home and put you where you will be beyond the reach of adversaries.  Your witness bearing for Jesus is your chief concern, and you cannot be stopped in it until it is finished therefore, be at peace.  Cruel slander, wicked misrepresentation, desertion of friends, betrayal by the most trusted one, and whatever else may come cannot hinder the Lord’s purpose concerning you.  The Lord stands by you in the night of your sorrow, and He says, “Thou must yet bear witness for me.”  Be calm; be filled with joy in the Lord.

The Lord stood by him, and said, “Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.”  —Acts 23:11
