Good Sunday Morning!
The Bible says:
And now abide faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest is charity.
1 Corinthians 13:13
Paul presents faith, hope and love as the three most important virtues of the Christian life.
Faith is the attitude of trust and confidence in God
Hope is the confident trust focused on the future; it is believing with assurance that God will fulfill His promise for us.
Love (charity) is the commitment. To other person’s good at whatever cost to ourselves.
Faith will be transformed as it yields to sight.
Hope will be transformed as God’s promises are fulfilled for us.
But love, the greatest of these three, will become only greater.

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,

Good Thursday Morning!
The Bible says:
But who am I and what is my people that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.
1Chronicles 29:14
Whatever riches we may enjoy, whether money, love, security, enjoyment or knowledge, all of it is simply “on loan” to us from God.
God has truly blessed us .We know our lives may not be perfect, but we must look at the blessings we have from God.
Everything we need God has provided.
We should give back to God out of thanksgiving for what He has given us.
Not only should we say “Thank you” but use it for his purposes.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Good Friday Morning!
The Bible says:
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
Ecclesiastes 3:1
We may have plans to achieve certain goals.But what we seek may not be in harmony with God’s season for us.
It’s not that God has forsaken us or forgotten us.it may not even be that we desired the wrong thing.
We may have simply desired it at the wrong time.
The Preacher reminds us that “to everything there is a season..and a time to every purpose under heaven..a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted.”
Don’t give up! For in the Timekeeper’s hand is a season when we shall experience all that he had preordained for us.
