The words that I speak to you, they are Spirit, and they are life. John 6:63
The Lord’s Day, March 21, 2021
to our church & fellowship
So, what saves us is our faith Certainly, not colour trait. Then the sheep of any kind Must be saved, not left behind. No matter what lane they take. As long as it is not fake. Since some sheep can go astray As they choose the wide bad way We may be, seen as black sheep. As close to sinners, we creep. But Jesus did just the same Redeeming them, of useless fame Strictly speaking, digging deep We can know, who is black sheep. Those whose wool, yield “lukewarming”. Despite, the Lord’s clear warning.
Black sheep, have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full. For my master and my dame, And for children in the lane. If others you tend to block You’re the black sheep of the flock. Black wool was not desired. Like people less admired Jesus came to seek lost sheep. To guard their eternal sleep Their salvation in His mind So together they will bind. Even sought those who were lame. Be it master or a dame. To forgive them of their shame As they praise His Holy name
Acts 3:1-10; Matthew 9:1-8, 18-31, 11:1-6; Luke 15:1-32; Revelation 3:14-22
Jesus designed His church to be the example of unity. However, the weakness of His disciples over and over again openly showed its disunity. There are matters that the Scripture commands judgment and separation for sinful people and false teachers. However, never on matters of opinion. It is a pity that we are able to make big issues on matters that the Bible does not. Instead of accepting the legitimate opinions of fellow brothers, we try to claim our spiritual superiority. Both mature Christians and weaker ones make a big thing out of what they perceive is important, but it is not. Different opinions are a reflection of the manifold nature of God. Our different opinions are supposed to be opportunities to exercise love and acceptance and not a chance to argue. Let us take heed of the Scripture and not quarrel over opinions.
PRAYING FOR THE NEXT GENERATION At church we are studying Romans, and in chapter 13 we read that the day is approaching and the night is soon over...  Our small children expect eagerly to jump out of bed in the morning, and so should we... Imagine if we our children see us eagerly getting out of bed and faithfully thanking our Creator for another new blessing of life. Doing this spiritually, not only sets an example, but we encourage our children to look forward for each new day given by God alone. Not by our strength or ability, but by His grace. Trusting that with this in mind, both adults and children will continue with their day, reflecting to whom we belong. Please pray for our children to know what is expected from them... They might not understand how to put on the armour of God, but if we pray together, and teach them spiritual facts at each stage of their lives…. they will get familiar that the spiritual armour exists and it's there for us all to use. Families are being broken daily, but with prayers and faith in the cross we should thank God that ours still stands and we should invest on keeping the pure unity in Christ. Also our extended family (the local church) is still standing…let us pray for each other and serve each other. The church will stand when Christ is the head and believers are active members.
Romans 14:1 As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.

WOL Marriage Devotion
MARRIAGE IS GOD’S DESIGN Recently three men married to each other legally adopted a baby! This shows how immoral and evil mankind has become. Humanity for a long time, ceased to allow the Bible to be their guide. We neglected the light that directs the path of life. It is incredible how Christian couples, also put aside the biblical foundation of marriage. Many times these couples were swept away by the flood humanistic morease The only reason they do that is because they put t h e p l e a s u r e s
of life before their love for God. Then, disaster enters into the relationship. Marriage is God’s doing because God created the marriage with a design and brought one man and one woman together like a father brings his daughter to her husband, but also because God spoke the design of marriage into existence. He did this in verse 24: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” God designed marriage in a way to bring order and stability in a society. Unfortunately, many Christian marriages are no longer the light to secular marriages. The Christian family adopted secular thinking into the design. Thus they became triple; for instead of marrying with Christ they are also in love with the world. Christian families must seriously examine themselves and find out who they are really married to, God or the world.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful…” Genesis 1:27-28
