The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Posted by Mike Marshall in Untagged 

25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[c]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[d]

Be Ready | Luke 12:35

Posted by Mike Marshall in Untagged 

35 “Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, 36 like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. 37 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. Truly I tell you, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them. 38 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the middle of the night or toward daybreak. 39 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. 40 You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

Churches Can Get Mega

Posted by Mike Marshall in Untagged 

From NationalDayofPrayer.org

While we often associate the word “church” with our locale of worship, Scripture takes a much broader view. The Church, ultimately, refers to the body of Christian believers around the world. The Lord is passionate for His Church, His bride. From the dawn of time, God’s purposes have centered around revealing His glory through His people ­ and securing our eternity with Him.

As those who guide and disciple the Church, today’s pastors and other Christian leaders face a vast and unprecedented array of pressures. While God has blessed His people with many godly ministers, these shepherds need our prayer support. As they strive to remain obedient to Christ, ask the Lord to provide them with strength and avenues of accountability so that they may maintain steadfastness in their vital callings. Down through the ages Christians have grieved over the tragedy of pastors who have succumbed to moral failure. Such circumstances seem all too frequent in our day and age. Pastoral families experience many unique stresses, too, and they can be overlooked even though their support role is crucial. Intercede for them, also, as they seek to faithfully come alongside their loved ones.

Some lessons i learned in reading on the book of Job and dealing with a personal crisis.

Scriptures reflected on...

For ewhatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. - Romans 15:4 16

They were carried off before their time, their foundations washed away by a flood. - Job 22:16

Tornado Prayer Alert

Posted by Mike Marshall in Untagged 

As 12 states have been on high alert today, 12 tornadoes have been reported throughout states in the U.S. Midwest with widespread damage. With a population of 1900, Marysville, Indiana residents reported the entire town “is completely gone.” Emergency management has yet to confirm this report.

Officials are tracking storms in Henryville just 20 miles north of Louisville, Kentucky.  Tornado warnings are still in effect for Southern Kentucky and Lexington now.  Storms are rotating and continuing tonight.

Two tornadoes have also been reported in Harrisburg, Alabama in a new round of storms threatening the southern and central U.S. The National Weather Service is now warning the system could produce strong long track tornadoes over central and southern Indiana, south and western Ohio, Kentucky and northern Tennessee. Earlier this week 13 people were killed in tornadoes in the Midwest.

Thought provoking in a rather limited way, but he only has 2 minutes...

Spiritual growth is not about performance, it's about relationship. Can we agree?

Romains 12

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
