As I prepared for fasting and prayer tomorrow I re-read the Gospel of John. Great exercise which I highly recommend. As I finished chapter 17 where Jesus prayed for Himself, His disciples and for you and me and went on to the next chapter I was struck with something that rang a bell in my head. When Judas showed up in the garden with the troop of soldiers from the church with all of their weapons, Jesus didn’t run or take cover. He simply asked a question, a question that I think we need to answer as a church continuously. “Whom are you seeking?” They answered, “Jesus of Nazareth”. No reaction from them until Jesus answered, ” I am He.” They drew back and fell to the ground. Why? They came looking for a prophet from Nazareth which is what they had been told. His answer said, I Am, God, Yahweh, creator of the world. They understood from the writing of Moses who I Am was and they were fearful. He asked them again to see if they got it, they didn’t and answered the same way, and He said again that He was God Almighty. I think that too many are seeking a historical Jesus from Nazareth and not the risen savior of the world, the great I AM. Whom are you seeking today? As we seek God together tomorrow let’s purpose to ask the question of our neighbors whom we all love, whom are you seeking? Praise God, have a blessed fast, Jim L.I.F.E. Ministries 114 Wynngate Rd.

We are having our twice per month Bible study/prayer/fellowship meeting tonight and the more I study the subject of church the more I am inclined to say that we have an Acts church meeting at my house. Wigglesworth said this morning in my reading, “God does not dwell in temples made by hands but in the sanctuary of the heart. (Acts 7:48). The church is the body of Christ. Its worship is a heart worship, a longing to come into the presence of God. God sees our hearts and will open our understanding. The Lord delights in His people. He wants us to come to a place of undisturbed rest and peace that is found only in God. Only simplicity will bring us there.” This concept has been a matter of study by me and several of my brothers of late and the more we study the word of God the more we wonder about the edifices we have built and called them Church. God clearly said that He would dwell in each believer (in the Person of His Holy Spirit) and that we should gather together to build each other in the likeness of Christ, and greater works than He did we will do. I fully appreciate the churches we have and the fellowship of the members and the great works they do but as we pray and prepare to fast and pray tomorrow I ask us to consider 1 Corinthians 14:26 (Order of Worship). “How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation.” Should our gatherings have some of this? Where everyone participates, for the edification of all! Please share your thoughts. In Him, Jim L.I.F.E. Ministries 114 Wynngate Rd.

Hello everyone, we are back and healed. Thank God. We returned from Ireland with a bad cold and it has taken a week to recover. Ireland was unbelievable and I have a story to tell about being ready in season and out. I was reminded of that this morning as I read in Ephesians chapter 1:14. Essentially it says that God gave us His Spirit as a guarantee that we will receive the inheritance He promised so that we could praise and glorify Him. We (my daughter and son in law and Peggy) were on an all-day tour during which the guide said we should have dinner at a certain restaurant/pub in Killarney. We went there and found the picture perfect Irish pub. We ordered our meal and three guys walked in carrying instrument cases. They unpack as they seated themselves next to us and began to play Irish folk songs. There was a violin, a bagpipe and an older gentleman with three stringed instruments. The whole pub gathered round for the entertainment. After many songs, my daughter noticed there were Irish tin whistles laying on the table and asked if she could join in…she is quite capable. They were delighted and after many songs together they ask her to lead in something of her choice. She asked them about Amazing Grace! They said they did not know the words and she looked at me and said he does. Can you believe that we lead the entire pub in three verses of Amazing Grace? Everyone seemed delighted. After all of this, we found out that the older gentleman was Jimmy Crowley, world famous Irish folk singer who even performs in Savannah at times. Ready in season and out! What a blast. God blessed the entire trip! Tomorrow as we fast together I hope this story will remind us all of how God plans for us to spread the gospel, so matter where we are. No meeting tonight for the LIFE group. We will reconvene next Tuesday for communion, prayer and Bible study. In Him, L.I.F.E. Ministries 114 Wynngate Rd.
