The Lord Protects Us From Danger And Untimely Death

"I love the Lord, for He heard my voice,
He heard my cry for mercy.
Because He turned His ear to me,
I will call on Him as long as I live.

The cords of death entangled me,
the anguish of the grave came upon me;
I was overcome by trouble and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the Lord:
'O Lord, save me!'

The Lord is gracious and righteous;
our God is full of compassion.
The Lord protects the simplehearted;
when I was in great need, He saved me.

Be at rest once more, O my soul,
for the Lord has been good to you."

Psalm 116: 1-7

Those who fear the Lord and are obedient to His will need not fear any danger or untimely death. The angel of the Lord encamps at the tent of those who love Him. Even if thousands fall at the wayside and ten thousand surround those who fear the Lord, they shall be unharmed for their protection is the Lord. The Bible says that no weapon made by man shall harm those who fear the Lord and walk in His ways.

So Close (I Believe)

Living Sacrifices

"Therefore I urge you, brothers, in view of God's
mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices,
holy and pleasing to God- this is your spiritual
act of worship.

Do not conform any longer 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.

For by the grace given me I say to every one
of you: Do not think of yourself more highly
than you ought, but rather think of yourself
with sober judgment, in accordance with the
measure of faith God has given you."

Romans 12: 1-3

Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. We must keep it clean, holy and without the stain of sin. To be more Christlike, we must renew our minds and check every thought that comes to us with the standard of Jesus Christ. Then, the Holy Spirit will begin the process of transforming us from glory to glory until we reach the whole measure of the fullness of Jesus Christ. Then God will be glorified in every thing that we do, say and think and we will shine like the stars in the firmament of heaven.

Blessed Is The Man Who Walks in The Ways of The Lord

"Blessed is the man who does not walk
in the counsel of the wicked or stand
in the way of the sinners or sit in the
seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on His law he meditates day and night.

He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season and whose
leaf does not wither. Whatever he does

Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that
the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in
judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of
the righteous.

For the Lord watches over the way of the
righteous, but the way of the wicked will

Psalm 1: 1-6

Blessed is the man who meditates on the laws of the Lord and does His will in his life. The Lord will watch over him and he will be blessed with all good things in life. He will be like a tree planted in the stream who will yield its fruit in season. But the wicked will perish with the evil that he does in his life.

Share Your Wealth With Your Less Fortunate Brethren

"Command those who are rich in this present world
not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth,
which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God,
who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds,
and to be generous and willing to share.
In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves
as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they
may take hold of the life that is truly life."

1 Timothy 6: 17- 19

Let us make ourselves channels of God's blessings to our less fortunate brethren, not withholding the help that we can extend to them. Our treasures are not of this world but in the kingdom of God where our reward for our good deeds await us. Freely give as we have freely received from the Lord.

Give Thanks

Life Through The Spirit

"Therefore, there is now no condemnation
for those who are in Christ Jesus, because
through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit
of life set me free from the law of sin and

For what the law was powerless to do in that
it was weakened by the sinful nature, God
did by sending His own Son in the likeness
of sinful man to be a sin offering.

And so He condemned sin in sinful man,
in order that the righteous requirements
of the law might be fully met in us, who do
not live according to the sinful nature but
according to the Spirit."

Romans 8: 1-4

We have been redeemed by Jesus Christ from our sinful nature and from our slavery to sin by dying on the cross at Calvary. So we must live in the Spirit, in the fear of the Lord and by walking in His ways. We must live a holy and blameless life worthy of the price Jesus paid for our very souls.

Protection From The Lord

"If you make the Most High your dwelling-
even the Lord, who is my refuge- then no
harm will befall you, no disaster will come
near your tent.

For He will command His angels concerning
you to guard you in all your ways; they will
lift you up in their hands, so that you will not
strike your foot against a stone.
You will tread upon the lion and cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

'Because he loves Me,' says the Lord, 'I will
rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges
My name. He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and
honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him and show him my

Psalm 91: 9-16

The Lord is our sure protection from all dangers and evil. The Lord will send His ministering angels to give us protection and guidance. Those who trust in the Lord will never be put to shame.

Come, Now Is The Time To Worship
