Action through Christ’s charitable proclamation of service by love.
Through Him [then] let us continually offer God a sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of lips that confess His Name. Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have; God is pleased by sacrifices of that kind. Hebrews 13: 15-16
His heart was moved with pity for them, for they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things. Mark 6:34b
Hebrews 13:15-17, 20-21, Psalm 23 & Mark 6:30-34
When I think of God’s grace, I think of Christ and how “His heart was moved with pity for them” as He displays in my heart the desire to exhibit charity in every thought, action and deed I pursue living for love of sacrifice neglecting excess for the righteousness of purity. I know what He has taught me is true forgiveness living in Truth knowing Him continually embracing a state of holiness. Many Saints will describe their journey from sin to Salvation as living in a state of Christ to love the joy of being holy. They first and foremost practiced by reading their Bible daily if not several times a day. In the midst of their Bible Study, they would pray offering sacrifice and praise continually (yes it can be done) to the Father of Mercy through the Prince of Peace. Most Saints were good orators but many displayed holiness in obedience to God not in words but action through Christ’s charitable proclamation of service by love.
Here we find the ever humble Christ Who from His knees taught humanity how to practice sacrifice and praise by the knowledge of God’s Word learning every day His Words of His Gospel as described in Luke 4:21, “Today this scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.” Here we find Christ teaching us how to pray to the Father of all unafraid to instigate prayer aloud anytime, anyplace and anywhere asking complete strangers to join you. Here we find Christ teaching us to “confess His Name” in proclaiming the Gospel to every living thing in every nook and cranny God’s amazing world has to visit. Please don’t neglect the act of service in the midst of confusing choices blinding parents and child alike from the act of purity to embrace Christ’s love. The difficult choices are going to be made to overcome sin in liberty, libation and lust by offering sacrifice and praise sharing more than financial ability but the God-given energy to practice, pray and proclaim the Truth of God’s love by charity. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today we continually offer sacrifice and praise in the midst of our confusing choices as a Child of God. Praying for the Emmaus Team of South Carolina and Harvard IL. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop, stay strong in Christ we pray. Day Two of a Novena of Prayers for a teenager name Monica. Prayers for Marco. LORD, help us to let go of “stuff” to truly “serve.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Giving whatever we enjoyably gain– Hebrews 13:15-21
We must strive through Jesus
Continual offer of sacrifice and praise
By the Fruit of our Lips every moment
Every day sharing to confess His Name
Neglecting not the good of sharing
Giving whatever we enjoyably gain
Sacrifices of love from caring
Pleased is the God of love sharing pain
Leaders must be obeyed deferring all to them
They keep watch over you one day to defend
Praying it is fulfilled in joy not sorrow’s contend
No advantage to you to be a borrower’s friend
Up from the dead our God of Peace gives
The Great Shepherd of sheep Who Eternally lives
Cleansing by the Blood of the Eternal Covenant Willed
Through Jesus Christ we give glory our Redemption truly fulfilled
