HAPPY they who trust in Jesus;
Sweet their portion is and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
God will keep His own secure:
Happy, though despised and poor.
Since His love and mercy found us,
We are precious in His sight;
Thousands now may fall around us,
Thousands more be put to flight,
But His presence
Keeps us safe by day and night.
Lo, our Saviour never slumbers,
Ever watchful is His care;
Though we cannot boast of numbers,
In His strength secure we are:
Sweet their portion,
Who our Saviour’s kindness share.
As the bird beneath her feathers
Guards the objects of her care,
So the Lord His people gathers,
Spreads His wings, and hides them there:
All their foes they boldly dare.
~By Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)~
“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.”
Thankful for the NEW and EVERLASTING life God has given us through His Only Begotten Son~ Jesus 🙂

Can you imagine Jesus and His disciples attending a “summit” to sharpen their “leadership” skills?
How about this for a “kicker”: Jesus and His disciples listening to and following the leadership “skills” from those of the secular world.
This Willow Creek Summit has a huge following. So many minds being corrupted. Shouldn’t God’s Holy Spirit be our leader and make us bold? What happen to that reality? What happened to God’s people being “SEPARATE” from the world?
We are to “keep it simple”. God’s Word says so! Right here in Corinthians:
*2 Corinthians 11:3-4*
3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
P.S. Just because 1oo’s of thousands are following this “summit” does not mean it is right. How many followed Jesus when He was physically here…
Shared for the love of God’s Truth. Not mine. His.

44 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.
45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
Amen and Amen!

8 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
Filling that “void’ in your life with food and things of this world may satisfy you for a time but it will NEVER nourish you the way you NEED to be nourished. How often have you filled up on the things of this world only left to feel empty-dried out- and then back to “starving” again?
I know how that feels, I have been there. There is an answer to CURE our inadequate “consumptions” that do not nourish our minds, bodies, hearts or souls. No pills needed and no withdrawals!
Taste and see that the Lord is ABLE to feed your soul AND satisfy your “hungry” heart! You WILL be blessed more than you ever thought you could be! TRUST ON AND IN HIM!
HE IS GOOD LIKE THAT!
