Bible Study & Devotional (January 10, 2021)

Guiding Scripture: “Take care! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired, because then you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven.” Matthew 6:2



If you think that the lines were long to reach a register to pay for your Christmas gifts, try waiting in line to return a gift.
What if we tried something new moving forward? A card that tells you a toiletry tote bag given to someone in need is the recipient of your gift.
Who would return it?

Let’s think about that and plan even more creative ideas to give meaningful gifts. Would this not be in keeping with what Jesus has done for us? We have been redeemed! God has given us the gift of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. God wants us to share His love for His story and us with everyone  


Let’s Pray: Lord Jesus, as your children, please helps us to share our blessings with others. When you give us two toys to play with, open our hearts to be willing to give one away. As children, give us the creativity to come up with ideas to give meaningful gifts. Keep us obedient to you, compassionate and faithful in your promises to us. Thank you, our Loving Lord. Amen

    Bible in a Year (Day 10)

    My God shot was the link between Abraham(Gen 24:2-4) and the Roman Centurion(Matthew 8:8-9). Both men worshipped the Lord and displayed great faith. As such, those in their household or under their command had faithful workers.

    Our Lord granted success to these assignments. The Lord is willing to heal. Our Jehovah-Rapha showed His power through the miraculous restoration of hurting hearts and bodies. Follow the scriptures as you journey from the Old to the New Testament and observe how our Lord continues to heal the righteous.

    Jesus came as the WORD(Matt.8:3) and spoke healing to the soldier’s son. The small details remind us that Christ is the son of God; He is a person who is real and present with us. We can become more responsive to the holy spirit. We also see how effective prayer(meditation of our heart, pure motives) aligns us with the will of God.
