“Give us this day our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11).

Praise God for supplying our every need. “His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness...” (2 Peter 1:3).

How has God provided for you recently? Praise Him for the specific ways He has provided for your physical, mental, spiritual, and social needs today, this past week, etc.

Greetings Family,

A few years ago, I traveled to Curacao to do some Evangelism work. The first few days of my sojourn on this beautiful island was an immersion into the diverse cultures that were represented by the people that resided on this island. I studied the people, the languages, the food, and the politics.

Immersion is becoming engulfed in something, to the extent that it has a lasting effect on one's being. This was indeed the case for me. There were things that I learned and experiences that I had that forever changed my life...experiences that I did not expect and could not have anticipated.

This is what it is like to be immersed in God...in God's Word, God's Spirit and God's Power. When we are immersed in God's Word it changes us and reshapes us in God's image and likeness and aligns us with God's will. When we are immersed in God's Spirit our daily reality is changed by being engulfed in the super-natural. We experience the power of God in an all-encompassing way. We feel a profound connection to the eternal, and we live in a posture of amazing peace and grace. Who would not want to experience something so awesome? Many people, because they see the Spirit-filled and Spirit-led lifestyle as a lack of control, out of fear of the unknown, reject the possibility of such a deep connection to and immersion in God.

What are the things in which you are immersed? Is it your family, your friends, your job or your pastimes? Whatever it is, if it is not God, it cannot deliver the fulfillment, growth and satisfaction that God can. Why not seek and immersion into the presence and power of God? Why not seek to be engulfed in God's Spirit and God's word? There is no greater existence than to dwell in the presence of the Most High God. This blessing can be yours today. It's time to be immersed!

Wrapped up in the Spirit of God,

 

Pastor J.M. Hurst

Praise God for His holy name and all that it reveals about His character. “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6)

Praise Jesus for giving us His righteousness so we can be holy, as He is holy.

Use the Psalms to guide you in praising God for who He is and what He has done.

God poured out His Spirit in Pentecost power after His church spent ten days together, pleading for His promised blessing. He is ready to do it again today! All around the world, Adventist churches are experiencing the renewal of the Holy Spirit by following the disciples' example and participating in Ten Days of Prayer. 

During these ten days of prayer you are encouraged to especially intercede for five people in your circle of influence. These may be family members, friends, coworkers, neighbors, or someone else you are concerned about. Read through the Lord’s Prayer, found in Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:1-4.   www.tendaysofprayer.org

Ms. Seward has been employed with the Seventh-day Adventist Church for the past 30 years and has made a decision to retire in March 2014. Ms. Seward has been with the Allegheny West Conference for the past 12 years and certainly knows what it means to be a faithful steward of God’s treasury. We thank you, Ms. Seward, for a job well done. May God continue His blessings upon you in all of your future endeavors.

Communion is a beautiful, symbolic act that Jesus instructed His followers to do in remembrance of Him. The communion table is representative of the Last Supper, during which Jesus taught His disciples about what He was about to do by giving His body and blood to save the world from sin. Luke 22:19. Join us this Saturday Jan 4, 2013 at 11:00 am as we celebrate the Lord's Supper.

God has the strength. You have the faith. Together these can do anything. Just as Peter had a chance to demonstrate his trust in God, so you can show your faith. You are not alone. Jesus is with you, always. You can be brave with Jesus.

Greetings Family, When I was a kid my mother would always instruct me about my behavior as I left the house with these words…”remember who you are.” These words were both reproof and reminder that there was a certain expectation of me…a certain behavior that was acceptable and that was not acceptable. As I heard these words, which I often did not want to hear because of my plans and intentions for the day, I was reminded of what was right and wrong, and these words confirmed in my mind the expectation was that I would do the right things.

Doing the right thing is not always the easiest route to follow. In fact, it is most often the path that requires more courage and tenacity of you. However, the right path always ultimately yields the richest blessings. I remember, many years ago, hearing old preachers and deacons pray about “giving up the wrong for the right.” That meant that the Christian journey requires us to turn from the wrong alternative to select that which is right and pleasing in the eyes of God.

Everyday each of us must make choices. It has often been said that the choices that you make today will determine the choices that will be afforded to you tomorrow. Indeed this true. It is therefore important that we do the right thing each day..that we make the right choices so that new avenues of opportunity will be opened up to us. Decision-making is the skill that is required for you to be able to make right choices. A good friend once lamented, after a person he knew in authority made a wrong choice, “Doc, it’s really unfortunate that people don’t realize how the choices that they make can affect other people’s destinies.” It is certainly true that our choices not only impact our lives but the lives of others. The weight of this reality is tremendous.

Do the right thing. Make the correct choice. Choose the better path. It will not only bless you, but many others for generations to come.

 

I Choose Christ,

 

Pastor J. M. Hurst

Discipleship is a powerful, practical and deeply spiritual resource for anyone who has ever wanted to know how to lead people into God's kingdom. Each lesson examines key concepts for effective disciple-making and includes the importance of being culturally sensitive, the role of intercession, and the importance of involving youth in the church's mission.

What will we do if things get hard for us this week? When we are tested and treated unfairly? When someone does or says something we don't like, how will we behave? We know that God has given us the tools to overcome our emotions. Let us choose to worship Him and not the problems we face. Pray and know where your help comes from. Jesus has the power, let's continue to seek him no matter what it takes.
