Praise God from Whom all blessings flow
Praise Him, all creatures here below

Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Amen
 
John Gill said, “It is proper to instruct children in the necessity of faith in God and in Christ, and of the use of prayer; and to lay before them the sinfulness of sin, and show them what an evil thing it is, and what are the sad effects of it; to teach them their miserable estate by nature, and the way of recovery and salvation by Christ; and to learn them from childhood to read and know the holy scriptures, according to their capacity; and by these to be admonished of sin, and of their duty, to fear God, and keep his commandments.”

EPHESIANS 6:11
 
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
 
Dr. Thomas Constable writes in his Expository Notes on the Bible, "In the context of this epistle, the aim of Satan, primarily, has been the disunity of the body of Christ. However, what Paul said here doubtless applies to all of Satan's aims and attacks. These offensives ('schemes') come to us from a very intelligent and experienced strategist, and they are frequently deceptive. 'Some of these clever ruses and vicious stratagems are the following: mixing error with just enough truth to make it appear plausible, quoting (really misquoting!) Scripture, masquerading as an angel of light and causing his 'ministers' to do likewise so that they 'fashion themselves as apostles of Christ', aping God, strengthening people in their belief that he does not even exist, entering places where he is not expected to enter, and above everything else promising people that good can be attained through wrongdoing.'"

DEVOTIONAL PASSAGE: PSALM 91:1-6
 
1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
 
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
 
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
 
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
 
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
 
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

DEVOTIONAL READING: "Intercessory Prayer (Part 1)" by Oswald Chambers
 
Luke 18:1 says, “…men always ought to pray and not lose heart.”
 
You cannot truly intercede through prayer if you do not believe in the reality of redemption. Instead, you will simply be turning intercession into useless sympathy for others, which will serve only to increase the contentment they have for remaining out of touch with God. True intercession involves bringing the person, or the circumstance that seems to be crashing in on you, before God, until you are changed by His attitude toward that person or circumstance. Intercession means to “fill up [with] what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ,” and this is precisely why there are so few intercessors. People describe intercession by saying, “It is putting yourself in someone else’s place.” That is not true! Intercession is putting yourself in God’s place; it is having His mind and His perspective.

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Saviour, John 3:16 states, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
 
The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.... For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
 
If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and I want to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
 
If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! I want to congratulate you on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read "What To Do After You Enter Through the Door". Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, "I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture."
 
Until next time, May the Lord Bless You!

The Acceptable Christian Sin of Gluttony

Judges 3:14-17
 
14 So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years.
 
15 But when the children of Israel cried unto the Lord, the Lord raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.
 
16 But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh.
 
17 And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man.

What is the Gospel?
 
According to 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, the Gospel is embodied in these words: "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures."
 
1 Corinthians 2:2 says, "For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified."

SING "I Don't Know Why"

I don't know why Jesus loved me
I don't know why He cared
I don't know why He sacrificed His life
Oh, but I'm glad, so glad He did

Where would I be if Jesus didn't love me?
Where would I be if Jesus didn't care?
Where would I be if He hadn't sacrificed His life
Oh, but I'm glad, so glad He did

He left His mighty throne in glory
To bring to us redemption's story
Then He died but He rose again
Just for you and me
Oh, but I'm glad, so glad He did.

I don't know why Jesus loved me
(Oh I don't know why)
I don't know why He cared
(Oh I don't know why)
I don't know why He sacrificed His life

Oh, but I'm glad (so glad), so glad He did
Oh, but I'm glad (so glad), so glad He did

TEXT: Matthew 5:43-45:

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
 
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
 
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
