Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 02/05/12

This week’s scripture is from 1 Peter:

“If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”           (1 Peter 4:11)

It is an honor to serve the Lord, to work to advance His kingdom, to bring the good news, to declare freedom to the captives. Yet not of ourselves, for we have not the strength, we have not the power, we have not the capacity to change minds, to serve without swerving, to humble the proud, to move men’s hearts. To God be the glory, to God be the power, to God be the praise forever and ever, for He supplies every need, He make us bold to speak truth, He makes crooked paths straight and leads in the narrow way, all to the glory though our Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, the Holy One. Praise be to God!

May the Lord bless you and may He bless the ministry He has given you. Amen.
