Feed the Hungry, Cheer the Lonely

When Jesus walked upon the earth
He didn’t talk with kings,
He talked with simple people
About just doing friendly things.

He didn’t praise the conquerors
And even of their heroes boast,
He said that the very greatest
Were those whom, He loved the most.

He didn’t speak of mighty deeds
Nor of victories proclaim, He spoke
About the feeding the hungry
And cheering the lonely folk.

I’m glad his words were simple words
Just meant for me and you,
The things he asked were simple things
That even I can do!

2 PETER 1:5

Add to your Faith, Perseverance,
Now how is that to be?
Change my circumstances,
And maybe then I’ll see.

Trusting God to change,
Your circumstances is Faith for sure,
Trusting God when they remain,
Is Perseverance and Faith to endure?

Without Perseverance…
We will only serve the Lord in comfort, joy and peace,
And that is a blessing for which we’re glad,
However, it will never our Faith increase.

II. THE SAINT’S LIFE:

Just as it can be easily misunderstood as to what the bible means by the word “slave” perhaps the “saint” word is even more difficult to grasp. Maybe you’ve heard the story of the two brothers – both crooked businessmen – who ran a small town. One of the brothers’s died; the surviving one – concerned about their image in the eyes of the town – offered a check for $25,000 to the local preacher if we would say of the deceased brother: “He was a saint.” The pastor gladly took him up on the offer. During the ceremony the remaining brother scowled on the front row as the preacher described the deceased as a crooked man who took advantage of widows and the poor, he was a no good, evil, swindler…but compared to his brother who sits here on the front row… He was a saint!”

Don’t fast-forward through the first verse of Philippians. Here, in two words, Paul describes the Christian’s life…

INTRODUCTION:

• Simon and Garfunkel’s hit “Like a Bridge over Troubled Water” has become a classic for those looking for peace and help in a troubled world. This is what we find in the Word of God. Peace and help and so much more…

• A little boy opened the big, old family Bible with fascination. As he turned the pages looking for colorful pictures, something fell out – a beautiful fall leaf that someone had pressed between its pages years ago. “Momma, look what I found,” the boy called out. “What have you got there, dear?” With wonder in his voice he answered, “I think its Adam’s suit!”

• Before we turn to several verses in Psalm 119 that speak to the power of God’s Word, there are some prevailing views of the Bible that we need to debunk.
