Universal Utterings
for November 18, 2016

(Paul) said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?” They answered him, “We have never even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.” He said, “How were you baptized?” They replied, “With the baptism of John.” Paul then said, “John baptized with a baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in the One who was to come after him, that is, in Jesus.” Acts 19:2-4

My soul is depressed; lift me up according to Your Word. Lead me from the way of deceit; favor me with Your Law. Psalm 119:28-29

They could find no way to accomplish their purpose because all the people were hanging on his words. Luke 19:48

Acts 19:1-7, Psalm 119 & Luke 19:48

Many of us can recall when a preacher, minister or priest gave the most enthralling sermon or witness that seemed to lite a fire in your soul that can’t be extinguished even though this event happened years ago where the Word of God hung in the air and followed you around maybe repeating a Scripture verse that to this day you can’t get out of your mind. The Letter to the Romans brings many to mind as well as the Ephesians where Paul reminds us to persevere. No matter the “dirty deed done cheap” or the spite we create in falsevity God will ask us to repent over-and-over again resting not on the laurels of laziness but the keeping of flames by maintaining the practice of His Word.

We may all feel depression if we forego the Truth of life to accept envy, greed and lust as crutches to hop along in life asking for immediate satisfaction instead of learning to take the time to practice, pray and proclaim the beauty of Christ’s hope, faith and love of His Release by His Charity. Here, we find the Holy Spirit beckoning us to live according to a purposeful surrender to establishing Works of Mercy always on the lookout to help feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, to welcome the stranger, visit the sick, visit the imprisoned and bury the dead. The Word you heard that hung in the air for you guides a loving obedience of living peace sharing freedom in Salvation. Amen.

Let us pray Heavenly Father living for You within our souls grants peace to perform Works of Mercy. Closerwalkmedia.com IN Jesus Name we pray. We acknowledge all donations from our fund drive to reach a simple $3,650 to fund Universal Utterings daily show. Amen.

†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Ephesians 6:17-20

Acts 19 One thru Seven

Paul hands deployed

Believers John baptized
Without Spirit Holy
Paul Corinth realized
Disciples Ephesus slowly

Heard never Spirit
Baptized repentance void
Jesus Name dearest
Paul hands deployed

Spirt Holy came
Enabled tongues spoken
Prophesied Jesus Name
Men twelve awoken
