1 Thessalonians 5:18

"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."  1 Thessalonians 5:18

Take time to reflect in your heart on what you have to be thankful for.  We are truly blessed, if for no other reason than our God, our creator has given us life.  Treasure each day and really live and enjoy the life that God has gifted to us.

Prayer of Thanksgiving

I don't know about you, but most of my prayer life is spent asking God for things. Asking for help, for comfort and love: for myself, my children, my grandchildren, my family, and my friends.  And there is nothing wrong with that. 1 Peter 5:7 says “casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you”. 

But, perhaps this week we should pray a prayer of thanksgiving for all that God has done for us, for this beautiful Salvation that he has given to us.  St. 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."  Pray a prayer of thanksgiving for the fellowship of God’s people as we read about in Psalm 133:1 "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!"
 
So, this week, especially this week, let us all thank God for his love, his caring, and his mercy, that he so bountifully gives to us on a daily basis.  Psalm 100: 4-5 "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations."

Peace

According to the dictionary, Peace is the absence of war or strife. It can also be a state of mind. God’s ‘PEACE’, given to us through Sanctification, gives us the knowledge and understanding to be strong in the face of life’s cares, problems, and constant changes.

John 14:27 states, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

In John 16: 33 we read, “These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

From the song, ‘He Whispers Sweet Peace to Me’
I trust Him through faith...by faith hold His hand....
And sometimes my faith is weak.....

And then when I ask Him to take command.....
It seems that I hear him speak.....

Chorus: 
He whispers sweet peace to me.....[to me]
He whispers sweet peace to me.....[to me]
When I am cast down....in spirit and soul....
He whispers....sweet peace to me.....

Perfect Love

The world looks for perfection and believes that perfection is something without flaw, and is unattainable, but another definition of perfect is genuine and complete.  The ‘Perfect’ work is when God sanctifies us and puts his ‘Perfect’ love in our hearts. The work is ‘Perfect’ and genuine and complete.  With God’s love in our hearts, leading us daily, we can live the life God wants us to live and do his work as he gives us wisdom to know his will.

1 John 2:5 states, “But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.”

We read in 1 John 4:15-17, “whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.  And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.  We love him, because he first loved us.”

And in St. John 17:22-24, we read, “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.”

What is Faith and why is it so important?

Hebrews 11:6 says that “without Faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

I believe that there was a George Washington, but is that the same as believing in Jesus Christ?  No, because Faith is taking that belief and acting or standing on that belief.  Hebrews 11: 1 says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.”  

Substance comes from the Latin word “Substantia”, which means “stands under” or “grounds things.”  So substance is those things that are foundational or fundamental entities of reality.  Evidence is a sign or proof of the existence or truth of something.  So Faith is taking those spiritual beliefs and behaving and making life decisions as if those beliefs are fact.

The woman that was sick in Matthew 9 said if I can just touch the hem of his garment. She believed in the healing power of Christ, but knew that she had to do something to get the results she needed.  She pressed through the crowd and reached out and touched the hem of his garment.  Jesus knew that someone of faith had touched him, even in the press of the crowd.  Matthew 9:22 says, “But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said Daughter, be of comfort, thy faith hath made thee whole.”  Faith is not the absence of doubt, faith is moving ahead in spite of any doubt. 

In Mark 9: 23-24, a man came to Jesus, asking for the healing of his son.  “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou my unbelief.”

So we find that Faith is the sincere obedience to God’s will that is exhibited in our life and our conversations.  Not based on circumstance, but based on the exercise of our beliefs.
