So have you seen this movie? Interesting and groovy! When Kevin finished alone He faced problems on his own His parents on vacation Two robbers on location Must protect their home alone All three now in a war zone But alone we never are Our Lord is not so far All we do is call His name As we pray without a shame To our rescue he appears No more stress and no more tears Trust in Him when trouble comes Prayers heard like distant drums
For Kevin it was a game One great challenge it became But spiritual is our war Without Him it can get sore Always love Him and obey So then help is on the way Forever till end of time He and us will always rhyme As in us will always dwell Cares for us and keeps us well As orphans we shall not be In His home we shall live free Kevin scared robbers away Was lucky to get his way By His Spirit we shall live To Him our lives we give
Psalm 50:15, John 14:15-31
PRAYING FOR OUR YOUNG GENERATION In our church, we don't have a lot of children and youths. But for the size of our church, we are blessed to have enough to have a healthy Sunday School program. We would operate much better if all parents cooperate with the Sunday school teachers that give up so much of their time for our children. Thank God for also having few Sunday school teachers dedicated to preparing to teach children, not of their own. We need to pray for these people as well. What about we give thanks to God for what we have and for whom God blessed us with, kids and teachers? Their participation in the church is preparing the spiritual condition of the future. Let us also begin to involve the little ones during services, such as in the discipline of praying. Rearing them from their formative years to pray and will produce intercessors in the maturing years.
Humans are proud, and this is why humility is a commandment in the Holy Scripture. Most people prefer to be served rather than serve. No wonder then the apostles were admonished to serve each other. When the apostles argued who of them would be the greatest in the Kingdom, Jesus made it very clear. The greatest in the Kingdom is the one that serves. It is also indicated in the Scripture that the higher social status one has, and yet serves, is a convincing quality of spiritual greatness. Jesus, the Son of God, God in the flesh, is the unique, unchallenged example. From a place with the Father, eternally in glory, he humbled Himself and became in the form of a servant (doulos). He voluntarily subjected Himself to serve. Yet, Jesus had other servant qualities. He is also called a “deacon” (diakonos). One of the functions of a diakonos is to quickly, without wasting time, attend to the need of another, whether it is commanded or expressed. This is the quality of several people mentioned in the Bible, including Phebe, a well-off Patron who was a deaconess in the church (Rom. 16:1).

WOL Marriage Devotion
There has never been a generation whose general view of marriage is high enough. The division between the biblical design of marriage and the common human vision has always been broad. Some cultures, more than others, throughout history, honor the importance and the permanence of marriage. Some, like our own, have developed a low, casual, loose attitude toward marriage. This makes the biblical design seem outdated to most people. In Jesus’ day, it was the same. However, ours is worse. When Jesus gave a glimpse of the magnificent view of marriage that God willed for his people, the disciples said to him, “If such is the case of a man with his wife, it is better not to marry” (Matt. 19:10). In other words, Christ’s vision of the meaning of marriage was so enormously different from the disciples’; they could not even imagine marriage is to be a good thing. Today, people say the same and run away
from a life-long commitment and either decide to cohabitation or have no stable relationship at all. That such a institution could be good news is simply outside their understanding. If that was the case then—in the strict, Jewish world in which Jesus lived—how much more will the beauty of marriage in the mind of God seem outdated in the modern Western culture.  We live in a culture where the main idols are self, autonomy, and entertainment. Christianity and the worship of God have become acts of entertainment. The altars of television, the internet, and the cinema, are where godly ordained sexual intercourse lost its purpose and now is offered to burn sexual lust. Our culture finds the glory of marriage that was in the mind of Jesus virtually obscure. Jesus would probably say to us today the same thing he said in his days: “Not everyone can receive this saying, but only those to whom it is given. . . . Let the one who is able to receive this receive it” (Matt. 19:11–12), but with a sterner voice. Let us then, examine ourselves and ask if our understanding of marriage is the one that Christ wanted to teach us.
