Online Ministry for the Week 04/17 - 04/23 2017


Author of faith, to you we lift our weary, longing eyes. Our fear would close us down to your love and your call on our lives. Even now, send your Spirit among us. Break into our shut-up hearts, unparalyze our fear-filled minds, and unclasp our clenched hands, that we may hear your words of life and truly live. In Jesus’ name. Amen.


From The Book of Life

Psalm 16

16:1 Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
16:2 I say to the LORD, "You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you."
16:3 As for the holy ones in the land, they are the noble, in whom is all my delight.
16:4 Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names upon my lips.
16:5 The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.
16:6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage.
16:7 I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.
16:8 I keep the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also rests secure.
16:10 For you do not give me up to Sheol, or let your faithful one see the Pit.
16:11 You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore.


Fatten Up
You give us … olive oil that makes our faces shine. Psalm 104:15 (NCV)

Myth: Fat is bad for you. Truth: Good fats are powerful anti-inflammatory compounds. But more important, they make your food tasty and satisfying. The important thing is eating the right kind of fats that will benefit your body. Healing fats include omega 3s from fish, nuts, seeds, avocados, olives, extra virgin olive oil, and coconut butter. Swap out the bad fats for the good and watch your health improve, your mood lift, your memory improve, and your skin, hair, and nails glow.

God of miracles, in the glorious resurrection of Jesus Christ, you overturned natural laws. Thank you for the patience Jesus showed to Thomas who was afraid that it was too good to be true. You still do wonders, transforming people’s lives by your Spirit working through disciples like us. We pray through Christ, our risen Lord. Amen.
