Eleventh book in the New Testament
Bible Reading: Psalm 30:5; Philippians 4:4Georgia went home crying to her sister Cecilia. "Cece, I was trying to be joyful today, but I can't! I saw how happy my friend was when she told me about her parents' anniversary. It must be easy for her to be joyful since her parents are still together." Georgia looked down, her bronze hair falling in her face.Her older sister tucked Georgia's hair behind her ear. "Yeah, I understand." Cecilia sighed and looked down at her feet. "Do you remember when you were only four years old?""Yeah, maybe." Georgia looked puzzled."You had so much joy," said Cecilia. "I remember one day at summer camp, the playground suddenly grew dark, and rain came pouring down. All the other kids ran underneath the playground equipment for shelter. The teachers started to get nervous as they searched for the kids. But you stayed and danced in the rain with your bright smile shining in the darkness. The kids began to come out from their hiding places and dance in the rain with you."Georgia smiled. "Oh, I guess I do remember that. I felt so much joy, even when it was cold and raining."Cecilia nodded. "And it was contagious! Having joy through trials is like being a light in the darkness, and Jesus says that being a light can lead others to Him." Georgia's face fell downcast again. "But what if I can't be happy right now?"Cecilia put an arm around her sister. "It's okay to be sad, Geo. I am too. It's just like the verse from Psalms Sister Marci read to us in church--'Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.' God knows that we may be sad for some time about Mom and Dad getting divorced, and that's okay. Just like the rain only lasts for a season, so do our trials. So long as we keep our focus on Jesus and remember that He's with us, we will experience a joy like no other. He understands our sadness and promises to dry all our tears for good one day.""You're right, Cece! I will remember to put my hope in Jesus, even if it's hard."Cecilia turned on her favorite tune and smiled. "Shall we dance?" -Toria KeyesHow About You?Are you going through a trial in your life that's making you sad or depressed? Whatever struggle you're facing, whether it's a bad grade on an exam, your pet dying, or missing a friend who moved away, Jesus understands your hurt and wants to provide you with His joy and peace. Remember that He loves you and is always with you, and trust Him to fill you with His joy even when you feel sad.Today's Key Verse:May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (NIV) (Romans 15:13)Today's Key Thought:Jesus brings joy, even in trials
Join me today as I discuss my struggle with worry and anxiety, specifically regarding my aging parents. I explore the negative effects of worrying on our bodies and identify five common triggers for anxiety. I share 6 practical tips to deal with worry, including seeking God's guidance, practicing gratitude, and choosing thoughts carefully. Throughout the episode, I provide personal examples and relevant Bible verses to encourage you to find peace, joy, and a healthier perspective in the midst of uncertainty. I encourage you to make your own CAN / CAN'T CONTROL LIST and then to surrender those things you cannot control to God. He will do all the CARING and CARRYING for you! Target verses (some paraphrased): Matthew 6:33: Seek God's kingdom and His righteousness above all else. 1 Peter 5:7: Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Philippians 4:6-7: Do not be anxious but to present your requests to God with thanksgiving. Joshua 1:8: Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night. Isaiah 41:10: Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Philippians 4:8: Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Jeremiah 6:16: Thus says the LORD: 'Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. Colossians 3:2: Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

Follower of One : Missions For The Rest Of Us
Do you catch yourself getting down about what you can't do? "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13 NASB Many people see this passage as some promise from God that we can do anything. But that's not an accurate representation of this idea based on the context if this passage. At the time he wrote this Paul was in prison. He wasn't able to do many things. His thought was that whatever God had given him to do, he could do it because God would give him the strength. Whatever he had to face, he could face it because of who God is and what he does. He strengthens us. This is the first of 20 "cans" that Dr. Neil Anderson laid out in the book Victory over the Darkness: Realizing the Power of Your Identity In Christ. I don't like to focus on the things I can't do. Paul wasn't concentrating on them either. He was saying that whatever he faced, he could face it because of the strength given by God. Everything God calls us to do, we can do it through the strength he provides. We know he called us to love God and others. And we can find a number of other calls in scripture, too. What is God asking you to do today? Maybe he's bugging you to serve a coworker. Or maybe he wants you to do something unpleasant to help a problem customer. Maybe he wants you to befriend a fellow student. Today, God's action for you will be something you can do in his strength. Let's focus on the things we can do and be a blessing to the people we interact with today. Let's do what we can by following, listening to, and obeying Jesus. The rest is his problem.

Psalm 127:1 NKJV Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:34 NKJV Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 NKJV I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. Psalm 34:4-5 ESV Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:6-8 NKJV There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18 NKJV BOOKS BY LOUIE GIGLIO Winning the War on Worry Don't Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table Goliath Must Fall Indescribable: 100 Devotions about God & Science – for Kids LINK Louie Giglio MOMS IN PRAYER · New to Moms in Prayer?

In this interpolated episode of the podcast WALKING WITH DANTE, let's look at some Biblical passages that may pertain to Purgatory. Medieval theologians used these verses to codify, justify, and elaborate on the brand-new doctrine.Join me, Mark Scarbrough, as I look at these five texts to find the rationales behind this new doctrine, brought into church theology formally only a few decades before Dante wrote COMEDY (and not fully codified into church doctrine until long after Dante's death). We can truthfully say that Dante's imagination is one of the most competent architects of Purgatory itself.Here are the segments for this episode of WALKING WITH DANTE:[02:30] Psalm 49: 13 - 15 and the problem of Sheol (or perhaps "the pit" or "the grave") and its increasingly complex geography over the course of its conception.[05:42] II Maccabees 12: 39 - 45 and the notion that the living can indeed do something to aid the dead, even idolators.[10:39] The Gospel Of Luke 16: 19 - 26 and the question of where exactly the poor man Lazarus goes when he dies and heads off to find comfort near Abraham.[16:47] I Corinthians 3: 11 - 15 and St Paul's notion that in the resurrection, even the redeemed will judged by fire.[20:11] Philippians 2: 9 - 11 and the strange, slightly baffling tripartite division of the afterlife.

“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I say rejoice.” Well, when the Apostle Paul wrote those words to the Philippian church, he was under house arrest in Rome. What he wanted the church to understand, what God wants you and me to understand, is that the joy of the Lord is not circumstantial, its intentional. It's a choice we have the power to make no matter how we feel or what we may be going through. --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/something-good-radio/support

I have 5 simple questions about the (so-called) Southern Border. I welcome any federal office holder on the show to answer them. If this isn't being done on purpose why don't they stop it? If this isn't an issue worth holding up the (so-called) debt ceiling extension over, what is? Why is the supposed solution to this another form of an injection-passport? Why is The Party's position ALWAYS people who abuse society's kindness get more power?How is this invasion, then, NOT an insurrection? What does God's Word say? Philippians 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,Psalm 39:12 “Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear to my cry; hold not your peace at my tears! For I am a sojourner with you, a guest, like all my fathers.Exodus 23:9 “You shall not oppress a sojourner. You know the heart of a sojourner, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.Exodus 22:21 “You shall not wrong a sojourner or oppress him, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.Romans 13:1-5 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.Episode 831 Links: 1 - If this isn't being done on purpose why don't they stop it?

If you post the truth about the Border by posting a video of the Border, Facebook may call it hate and take it down. So, Mark “Election RIgger” Zuckerburg, which part is “hate?” A). People illegally crossing the Border B). People showing videos of people doing what they are choosing to do? C). The Part where Americans get to make up their own minds about something as important as mass, illegal immigration being rewarded? If you are Donald Trump and you tell the CNN audience what you really think and you devastate their lies about your January 6th statements, CNN will not only end the broadcast early, their anchors will either explain it was like Pearl Harbor all over again or they will tell viewers to never watch CNN again.

There's this little old camp song (maybe you've sung it), "Little cabin in the woods, little man by the window stood." I've sung it to my grandkids as they were growing up. Well, that was me sometimes. Yeah, some friends had given us this wonderful gift of vacationing in their mountain cabin, surrounded by woods. One morning we got a call from a neighbor notifying us of a visitor they had that morning - a mother bear and her cub. Since I was going out every day for a vigorous walk in the woods, I had mixed emotions, "I hope I get to see those bears. I hope I don't see those bears." I'd rather eat lunch than be lunch. You know, it's just a preference. I'm kind of funny that way. We never saw the bears. But it was interesting to see the pictures that our neighbor snapped of her furry visitors. There seems to be a special attraction for those bears - garbage. Yeah, when people have seen those bears, they're usually doing whatever it takes to get the lid off of a garbage can, including standing on top of the can, rocking back and forth on it, and trying with both paws to pry it open. They love garbage! I'm Ron Hutchcraft and I want to have A Word With You today about "An Appetite For Garbage." An appetite for garbage; I guess it's OK if you're a bear. It's not OK if you're a child of Almighty God. That's why God says in 2 Corinthians 7:1, our word for today from the Word of God, "Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God." In other words, stay away from any garbage that can contaminate a son or daughter of the holy God they belong to. The promises God says He's basing this challenge on, tell us that we are "the temple of the living God" and "sons and daughters" of "the Lord Almighty" (2 Corinthians 6:16-18). Sadly, too many of His sons and daughters have allowed themselves to develop an appetite for garbage. TV shows, movies - they either glorify or minimize behaviors that break God's law and break God's heart. Or music, videos, whatever that's about doing some of the very things that Jesus died to deliver us from. Plenty of it on social media. Plenty of it on the Internet. Maybe you've wandered where you never should have gone on the Internet, or in a magazine, or things you've been reading. Boy, it's attractive, but the wrapping paper doesn't change the fact that there's garbage inside. Often the trash that pollutes our soul and lowers our guard comes wrapped in something that's very entertaining, very magnetic, very popular, very funny. But garbage comes in other forms, too. Like negative talk, gossip, or backstabbing that you allow yourself to soak up. Some of us just can't walk away from something juicy about another person. That is verbal garbage. If you're wondering why you feel defeated so many times, why you don't feel as close to Jesus as you used to, or why your dark side keeps winning and bringing you down, have you considered your diet: what you're watching, what you're listening to, who you're spending time with, or the things you laugh at. God tells us in Ephesians 5:11 to "have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness." And He says in Philippians 4:8 to think instead about things that are "noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and worthy of praise." Fill your mind, fill your heart with things that will build your soul, not poison it, not tear it down. Honestly, have you allowed yourself to gradually develop an appetite for what God would consider garbage? It has no place in a life that's been bought and paid for with the precious blood of the Son of God. Walk away from that garbage can. There's nothing in there that belongs in you.

James 2:14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 2 Corinthians 13:5 NLT Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you; if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith. Fake faith is DEAD. James 2:17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. Fake faith is DECEIVED. James 2:19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder. James 2:17-18 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 3 Ways To Know We Have Faith: Real faith STEPS out. James 2:21 Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? Real faith is a faith that RESPONDS in obedience when God SPEAKS. Real faith STICKS out. James 2:25 In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? Real faith WORKS out. James 2:26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead. We aren't looking for PERFECTION, but we are striving for PROGRESS. Philippians 2:12 MSG What I'm getting at, friends, is that you should simply keep on doing what you've done from the beginning. When I was living among you, you lived in responsive obedience. Real faith is a RESPONSIVE and OBEDIENT faith. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/coastalchurch/message

Calvary: the Hill Sermons (Audio)
For Paul, all worldviews pale in comparison with simply knowing Jesus. It is this relationship that has caused Paul to forfeit all other allegiances and avenues. For Paul, the gospel is a person named Jesus.
What do you really want in life? What do you want so much that it would be worth giving up whatever is necessary for you to get? In Philippians 3, Paul uses his example to show us that Christ is the supreme treasure that is worth forsaking all other treasures in order to acquire. Everything in our life is like trash compared to gaining Christ. Everything we think is valuable is nothing compared to Christ. The greatest thing in the universe is to gain and know Christ.

God humbled himself to the point of crucifixion for our sins. Humility is always God's way with us, are we living humbly in every area of our lives?
Most of the time our emotional happiness is based on our life's circumstances. As we continue our week on the simplicity of love, today we'll be taking a look at the joy that comes from living a love-based life. Once we know that God's love is for us always, unconditionally—no matter what, our hope is secure and joy is ours for the taking. May you walk in joy today as you lean into this love-based reality a bit more. Our Scripture for today comes from Philippians 4:4, and today's worship is Free by Life Church. -- When you trust Christ as your savior and Lord, you begin a relationship that extends into eternity. However, eternity doesn't start in heaven, and you don't have to wait until then to experience a full life in Christ. The truth is that we as Christians are called to invest in our relationship with God in this life as well as in the life to come. And that means becoming more like Christ every single day. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus provided a systematic ethic for how to be his disciples. It was a relatively short sermon, but God's truth in that message has never stopped reverberating throughout the world. Our latest book, The Path to Purpose delves into the timeless wisdom of Jesus' most famous sermon, the Sermon on the Mount. St Augustine described the sermon as “a perfect standard for the Christian life.” While we may doubt ourselves from ever achieving such “a perfect standard,” Jesus' central message in his Sermon on the Mount helps us see that standard not as a burden but rather as a source of freedom, purpose, and a guide for living beautifully. To know more about God's calling on your life, request your copy today of The Path to Purpose: Christ's Vision for Your Life in the Sermon on the Mount, at supportfirst15.org.

Philippians 1:27God is looking for men and women whose hearts are completely His. He wants to use you—you are uniquely placed in your situation to reach people for Christ in your sphere of influence. Never underestimate the difference you can make simply by refusing to blend in. The way you live can help someone find God.

The Intentional Parents Podcast
In today's show, we talk about the different processes by which we make decisions. We make decisions every day, and sometimes they can be life-changing. Our culture tells us one way, but as followers of Jesus, how do we discern God's will with the choices that come our way? We break down three different ways people make decisions: The way of Logic, The ignition way, and The way of discernment. We share some real-life stories where we learned the hard way and explore the lessons from those experiences. We dive into practical ways to help you navigate the discerning process. We cover topics such as how our egos or false self can affect our decision-making abilities and how some may have misconceptions about suffering related to God's will for our lives. Today, we ask a couple of essential questions that can help you uncover some patterns that may make you stuck; What do I believe about God, and Does he want the best for me and my family? We also discuss balancing our feelings while not letting our emotions rule our decisions. We have been working thoughtfully to develop a process to help our own family make big decisions and discern God's will for our lives. We genuinely hope these nine steps bless and assist you as you walk through your moments of discernment that arise. This process takes time, and we hope to encourage you to practice these steps slowly. The process: Focusing your attention on GodConsider what it means to be totally attached to God's agenda and willLay your choice before God and examine the matter thoroughly.Share your desires with God.

Daily Devotional By Archbishop Foley Beach
Jesus Followers Can Personally Talk to God, the Universe's Creator, About Issues Like His Will for You; but Do You? MESSAGE SUMMARY: As a Jesus Follower, you have a personal relationship with God, the Creator of the Universe; and you can talk to God like you talk to your father. Remember God loves you. Imagine climbing up into His lap and imagine Him wrapping His arms around you – He is God your loving father. As God tells you in 2 Samuel 7:14-15: “I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son. When he commits iniquity, I will discipline him with the rod of men, with the stripes of the sons of men, but my steadfast love will not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away from before you.". You need to start talking to Him as the best dad there could ever be. Talk to God, regularly, about your life; your concerns; and your needs. You need to ask Him for His counsel, and you need to ask Him questions regarding His will for your life. TODAY'S PRAYER: Father, may the pains I experience in life kill the things that need to die in me — arrogance, pride, and indifference to others. Help me, daily, to see my frailty and how dependent I am on you, the Master of the Universe. In Jesus' name, amen. Scazzero, Peter. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day (p. 72). Zondervan. Kindle Edition. TODAY'S AFFIRMATION: Today, I affirm that, because I am in Jesus Christ, I will live as Jesus would. (Philippians 1:27). “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”.

Van De Venter28:43 Message StartMessage Notes:Things to Remember When You Suffer for the name of Jesus1. Suffering disgrace for His name is not a punishment, it is a privilege.Acts 5:41 (NIV)“The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name.”1 Peter 4:12-14,16 (NLT)“don't be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. Instead, be very glad—for these trials make you partners with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to all the world.If you are insulted because you bear the name of Christ, you will be blessed, for the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you...it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by his name!”Philippians 1:29 (ESV) "For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake”2. God will give you boldness stand for His name sake in the time of suffering.Acts 4:29-31 (NLT) “O Lord, hear their threats, and give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word. Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.After this prayer, the meeting place shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the word of God with boldness.”Ephesians 3:9-12 (ESV) “God, who created all things, so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in him.”3. God will use your suffering for good and your blessing.1 Peter 4:14 (ESV) "If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.”Matthew 5:11-12 (ESV) “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven”

Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens
When I was thirteen, I attended my first church camp. I experienced life-changing things, like when I encountered 1 Peter 5:7, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” I'd never noticed this verse before, but that week 1 Peter 5:7 sank into my soul. Because, like most teens, I had worries and cares! Problem was—exactly HOW do you give them to God?.Well, over time I learned that giving our cares to God isn't an event—it's a process..First, I remember who I am coming to: Jesus—God in flesh—who also suffered. In fact, Hebrews 5:8 tells us that Jesus “learned obedience from the things he suffered.” Hmmm... that's mind-boggling. Even though Jesus's suffering and obedience are different from ours, it's incredible to ponder Jesus learning obedience from His suffering..Then, I think about why Jesus suffered on the cross and rose again—out of His great love for me, He chose to personally redeem me, both from sin and (when He returns) from suffering (Revelation 21:3-4)..Lastly, I remember even Jesus agonized over His suffering. In Luke 22, we see Jesus face the cross, fervently praying for deliverance from His “cup of suffering” (verses 42-44). Since Jesus truly empathizes with us in our weaknesses, we know we can boldly come to Him..And so... how do we boldly come to Jesus? Simple—we follow the instructions in Philippians 4:6-8. In this passage, we see what to pray about: everything! And we see how to pray: “Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done” (verse 6). And that's it! We are giving our cares to Jesus. And, as we continue to bring our requests to God (notice the word "continue"), we can experience God's peace (verse 7). In this way, we can come to Christ whenever we are weary—and find true rest in Him (Matthew 11:28-30). • G. Kam Congleton.• In the book of Psalms, we see God's people giving their cares to Him—often with strong words, even accusing God of being distant, hurtful, and uncaring (Psalms 6, 10, 88). In times of pain and suffering, God invites us to come to Him honestly, telling Him just how hurt, angry, or sad we feel. He isn't afraid or ashamed of our emotions, even if we are. And it's only in being honest with God that we can truly experience His comfort. We can tell God what we actually want from Him, not just what we think He wants to hear. How could this truth affect the way you give your cares to God? Consider taking a moment to talk to Him about these things now. .Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 (NLT)

Don't miss part 2 of the series as Candy expounds on what it means to, "war in prayer." From the passages of Psalm 23 and Philippians 4, in this 3 part series, Candy exhorts us to elevate prayer on our priority list. Our level of peace or lack thereof is the indicator of the prevalence of prayer in our life. Learn to pray, not simply as one "taking orders" from a captain. Rather, as one engaged in an active & relational dialogue with a good and faithful Shepherd. Now more than ever, we must stay near the shepherd!

Pastor Ken continues through Philippians
It's Monday, May 8th, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Adam McManus Two kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls rescued in Nigeria Last Friday, after more than nine years of captivity, two more Chibok schoolgirls have been rescued by Nigerian soldiers, reports International Christian Concern. Hauwa Maltha and Esther Marcus, who are now in their 20s, were forced into marriage with the Boko Haram Muslim terrorists who kidnapped them. Maltha revealed that she was forced to marry three terrorists during her nine-year captivity. She was eight months pregnant during her rescue and delivered a healthy baby boy on April 28. Christian communities within Chibok have been faced with ongoing persecution since 2014 when about 300 schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram. The coronation of King Charles III On Saturday, King Charles III was officially coronated as Britain's reigning monarch at London's Westminster Abbey, reports Fox News. Beside him was his wife, Queen Camilla. The eldest son of the late Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, was crowned on Saturday. The 74-year-old ascended to the throne upon the death of his mother, who died in September 2022 at the age of 96. Queen Elizabeth was Britain's longest-reigning monarch. Charles was proclaimed Britain's monarch two days later. The coronation was filled with pageantry and music. (sound of music) BOY: “Your Majesty, as children of the Kingdom of God, we welcome you in the name of the King of Kings.” KING CHARLES: “In His name, and after His example, I come not to be served, but to serve.” Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, led the oath. ARCHBISHOP WELBY: “The coronation oath has stood for centuries, and is enshrined in law. Are you willing to take the oath?” KING CHARLES: “I am willing.” ARCHBISHOP WELBY: “Will you solemnly promise and swear to govern the peoples of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, your other realms and the territories to any of them belonging or pertaining, according to their respective laws and customs?” KING CHARLES: “I solemnly promise so to do.” ARCHBISHOP WELBY: “Will you, to your power, cause law and justice and mercy to be executed in all your judgments?” KING CHARLES: “I will.” ARCHBISHOP WELBY: “Will you to the utmost of your power, maintain the laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel? Will you, to the utmost of your power, maintain in the United Kingdom, the Protestant Reformed religion established by law?” KING CHARLES: “All this I promise to do. The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep. So help me God.” WELBY: “God save the king!” PEOPLE: “God save the king!” [Watch the key points in the coronation and subsequent procession at C-SPAN where you can click on just the portions that interest you.] King Charles' request to let non-Christians lead prayer was overruled Two theological controversies arose out of the planning of the coronation. First, to the discomfort of Anglican church leaders, King Charles wanted four non-Christian religious leaders -- a Muslim, a Hindu, a Sikh, and a Jew -- to lead prayers at some point during the coronation Christian service in Westminster Abbey. Anglican Archbishop Justin Welby said, “The coronation is first and foremost an act of Christian worship.” And Gavin Ashenden, the former Chaplain to Queen Elizabeth, offered his analysis to CBN. ASHENDEN: “The order of service was delayed. And we're pretty sure it was delayed because Charles wanted a group of representatives of other faiths to lead the prayers. But there's a rule in the Church of England; it's part of the church's law, and it's backed up by Parliament's law, that to lead the liturgy in an Anglican church, you have to be a believing Anglican. So, there was a conflict. And it looks like Charles lost.” Instead of leading prayers, the Muslim, the Hindu, the Sikh, and the Jew presented the king with four pieces of coronation regalia on page 9 of the Order of Service. [Those taking part are Most Venerable Bogoda Seelawimala (Buddhist), Lord Singh of Wimbledon, (Sikh), Radha Mohan das (a representative from a Hindu temple in Hertfordshire), Aliya Azam (Islam), and the Chief Rabbi Sir Ephraim Mirvis (Judaism).] In Exodus 20:2-3, the one true God speaks with clarity. “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me.” Defender of the Faith, Defender of Faith, or Defender of Thy Faith? The second theological controversy actually dates back to 1994. That's when Prince Charles had expressed an interest in changing the title of the ruling monarch, once he assumed the throne, from “Defender of the Faith” – meaning the Christian faith -- to “Defender of Faith,” a generic reference that would have been inclusive of any faith and thus terribly meaningless, reports EuroNews.com. Apparently, Archbishop Welby settled on the title of “Defender of Thy Faith,” referring to God's faith. Candidly, that is an odd reference since God doesn't need to have faith in His own existence; we do. Listen for that phrase as Archbishop Welby opens the communion portion of King Charles' coronation service. WELBY: “It is right, and our bounden duty, that we should, at all times and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, Oh Lord, Holy Father, Almighty Everlasting God, through Jesus Christ, Thine only Son, our Lord, who has, at this time, consecrated Thy servant, Charles, to be our king. That by the anointing of Thy grace, he may be the Defender of Thy faith and the protector of Thy people, that with him, we may learn the ways of service, compassion, and love. And that the good work that Thou has begin in him this day may be brought to completion in the day of Jesus Christ.” That last sentence is a clear reference to Philippians 1:6 which says, “He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” Gunman at Texas mall killed 8, wounded 7 And finally, a gunman shot and killed eight people and wounded at least seven others at Allen Premium Outlets mall located 25 miles north of Dallas on Saturday, reports Reuters. EYEWITNESS #1: “It was at least 50 to 100 rounds. It was nonstop and there was nothing we could do. It was just terrible.” According to a DashCam video of the scene, the gunman, dressed in black, pulled up in a Grey Charger, opened his door, and just started firing on shoppers as they walked by the H&M store. Allen, Texas Police Chief Brian Harvey explained how the shooting came to an end. HARVEY: “At 3:36pm this afternoon, one of our officers was on an unrelated call at the outlet mall. He heard gunshots, went to the gunshots, he engaged the suspect, and neutralized the suspect. He also then called for ambulances.” The attacker has been identified as 33-year-old Mauricio Garcia, who had been living with his parents until recently before he started staying at a motel nearby, reports NPR. Police found an AR-15-style rifle and a handgun at the scene after Garcia was killed. Steven Spainhouer, whose son worked at the H&M store at the scene of the shooting, said this. SPAINHOUER: “It was a warzone there. There is no other way to describe it. There's no way these people could have survived the assault of those weapons.” Please pray for God's strength and comfort for both the grieving families and the wounded survivors.

I see that a lot of us can get caught up trying to make ourselves holy for God's approval. Many of us are tortured by the pressure of trying to sanctify ourselves, as if we ever had the power to. One thing we all must acknowledge is that if we could purify ourselves, we wouldn't need a Savior.

Gospel Scripture: (all NIV) Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Romans 3:24 “and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” Romans 3:25 (a) “God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood.” Hebrews 9:22 (b) “without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:11 “Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.” John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Romans 10:9 “That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Luke 15:10 says “In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Romans 8:1 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” Ephesians 1:13–14 “And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession- to the praise of his glory.” Ephesians 1:15–23 “For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.” Ephesians 2:8–10 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God‘s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.“ Ephesians 2:13 “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.“ Philippians 1:6 “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

It was a time I had the opportunity to be in London. I got to see some things that we don't see much of in America: the palace, the double-decker buses; buildings that represent up to 1,000 years of history. And there's one thing that was very new there for an American, and It could be dangerous. Yeah, the direction of traffic. Cars drive on the left side, and it really messes up American drivers and in this case an American pedestrian. You step off a curb, looking to the left of course. We've been conditioned for a lifetime - look left. You do that in London, and you may not be using your return ticket. As in any city, there's busy traffic. But the British must know there will be confused Yanks there like me. So they paint these signs and arrows on the pavement that say "Look Right." They saved my life! It's very important. If you're not looking the right way, you can get run over. I'm Ron Hutchcraft and I want to have A Word With You today about "Which Way to Look When It's Overwhelming" Our word for today from the Word of God, Luke 9, and we're in the middle of that feeding of the 5,000 where the disciples have seen the size of the crowd and said, "Boy, they've got to eat, Jesus, and we'd better send them away." And Jesus said, "You give them something to eat." The disciples aren't quite sure what to do with that command. They answered, "We have only five loaves of bread and two fish - unless we go and buy food for all this crowd. But He said to His disciples, 'Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each.' Taking the five loaves and two fish and looking up to heaven, He gave thanks and broke them. Then He gave them to the disciples to set before the people. They all ate and were satisfied." Okay, Jesus and the disciples are facing an overwhelming need. Maybe like you are right now. Maybe you're looking at a financial need, or a family need, and it's like a Mission Impossible. See, that's when miracles happen. It's kind of like crossing streets in London. The outcome depends on which way you're looking. There are three ways you can look when you're facing an overwhelming situation. First, you can look out at the need. That's what the disciples did. It's a huge crowd; a huge need. Secondly, you can look down at your resources. In John 6 that's what the disciples did. Andrew said, "Here's a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?" "Hey, our resources are no match for this need, Jesus!" Maybe that's how you feel right now. You just don't have the money, or the wisdom, the people, the strength, the help. Well, in both cases you're going to be paralyzed or you;re going to be panicky. There's a third way to look, and that's what Jesus did. It says, "And looking up to heaven He gave thanks for the loaves." Jesus chose to look in the Lord's direction, not out at the need, not down at the resources, but where the resources are unlimited. The Bible says in Philippians 4:19, "God will supply all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus." So Jesus thanked God for what He did have, though it was nowhere near enough. And not enough was miraculously multiplied into more than enough. Do you know that's exactly what happens when somebody puts their life into Jesus' hands? Jesus said, "I've come that you may have life and have it to the full." And we do as much as we can do with our lives, until one day we say, "Jesus, You died on the cross to pay for my sin. You walked out of your grave under your own power. It's time I took this life that I have thwarted and put it in the hands of the One who was meant to be controlling it all along." That's your "Jesus day." It could be today. The One who loved you enough to die for you, You begin your relationship with Him. Say, "Jesus, I'm yours." You want to be sure you belong to Him, check out our website. It will help you. Go to ANewStory.com. You know, if we hadn't looked the right way in heavy traffic, we would have been run over. But God has written in this feeding of the 5,000, clear direction. Don't look out at the need. Don't look down at the resources. Look up to heaven where the riches in glory in Christ Jesus are.
Jesus sends us on a mission to take the gospel to our neighbors and to the nations. God has a mission for you! Ask Him how He wants you to live sent. John 20:21 says, “As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” GOD'S MISSION FOR YOU IS TO LIVE SENT The Apostle Paul lived sent by keeping these 3 things in mind… He was a bondservant to Christ. Paul described himself as a debtor and a bondslave of the Lord Jesus Christ. A bondslave was not “forced” into servitude but one who willingly chose to serve their master, giving up all “rights” to their life. He was willing and ready. Paul could not contain his passion for the mission of taking the gospel to the nations! In Romans 1:15, he wrote, “So, as much as is in me, I AM READY to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome also“ (emphasis added). The words “I am ready” are translated from two Greek words that imply passion and emotion. He was unashamed. In Romans 1:16, Paul wrote, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” He was ready to give his life to take the gospel to others. He said in Philippians 1:21, “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Join Pastor Phil Hopper as he encourages you to live sent and on mission for God, explain what it looks like to… Be a bondservant to Christ Be willing and ready Be unashamed Are you ready to be used by God for a greater purpose?

When our world is falling apart and we're trying to keep it all together, we need to understand that everything in our lives needs to be all about Christ. It has to be! And Pastor Ford will explain in Philippians 4, Paul is essentially saying, ‘If you kill me, I'll go be with Christ. If you let me live, I'll live for Christ. And if you make me suffer, I'll get a crown from Christ.' So, bring it on! It's all about Jesus Christ! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
In the kingdom of God, we find a culture different from that of our world. We are often taught to be self-made, pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, and that it's the survival of the fittest. God's kingdom turns these principles on their head. We are encouraged to wait, trust, and receive from our God who supplies for our every need. Does your life mimic one of trust and waiting? One of open hands and thankfulness? Today as we move forward in our week of God being our Father we'll look at his provisional nature. As we learn of God's intentions to meet our every need, open your heart today to trust in this God who's our Provider. Our Scripture for today comes from Philippians 4:19, and today's worship is Voice That Stills the Raging Sea by Rivers & Robots. -- Start your day with Jesus Most of us know the importance of a daily quiet time consisting of Bible reading and prayer, yet many struggle with finding a devotional resource that is both easy to understand and relatable to daily life. The First15 app is designed to make connecting with God easier than ever. “Thank you for providing this venue to help people give God space in their lives. I discovered First 15 through a Bible App plan and I've been listening to the podcast ever since. I look forward to winding down each evening with First 15.
