Timely Tidbits of Truth 17

Timely Tidbit of Truth 17
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

In the uncertain times in which we are living, God wants us to live as people of faith. In a world that is shaking, we stand upon His unshakeable Kingdom; amidst fear, we have peace beyond understanding; amidst sorrow, we hav
e joy unspeakable; amidst trouble, we have every comfort and consolation; amidst uncertainty, we have the blessed hope.

The Bible reminds us to:
· Be watchful
· Be peaceful
· Be prayerful
· Be sober
· Be ready

The Bible reminds us not to:
· Be fearful
· Be deceived
· Be troubled
· Be spiritually asleep
·
Be weighed down with cares

Follow Me

Follow Me
-Roy Lessin

When Jesus walks into your life,
He comes with scarred feet;
He comes as a servant—
He greets you with
a basin and a towel;
He calls you to follow Him
by taking your hand in His—
Letting His wounds assure you
that you will never walk the path
He has chosen for you without His presence.

My Morning Prayer: God Is Love

My Morning Prayer: God Is Love
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley

God Is Love
-Roy Lessin

Every attribute of God is an attribute of love;
every expression of God is an expression of love;
every word of God is a word of love.

Righteousness is the character of love;
Holiness is the beauty of love;
Omnipotence is the power of love;
Omnipresence is the nearness of love;
Omniscience is the mind of love;
Judgment is the protection of love;
Grace is the favor of love;
Goodness is the practice of love;
Kindness is the attitude of love;
Care is the tenderness of love;
Majesty is the glory of love;
Giving is the expression of love.

Peace is the rest of love;
Joy is the celebration of love.

We love Him because He first loved us (1 John 4:19 NKJV).



My Morning Prayer
-Marina Bromley

Father, thank You for this reminder of the qualities of Your love, the love that You extend to me. Equip me to love others with these actions...kindness, care, giving, goodness, peace and joy—the fruits of the Spirit! My love is not perfect, but Yours is! Please help me to learn Your way to love others, that they might recognize Your love at work in me, and fall in love with You as I have. You are my everything! In Jesus' name. Amen.

Timely Tidbits of Truth 16

Timely Tidbits of Truth 16
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow


Have or Am?

You or I can say, “I have the way. I have the truth. I have the life.”
Only Jesus can say, “I Am what you have.”


Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me (John 14:6 NKJV).

A Godly Leader

A Godly Leader
-Roy Lessin

A godly leader...
finds strength by realizing his weakness,
finds authority by being under authority,
finds direction by laying down his own plans,
finds vision by seeing the needs of others,
finds credibility by being an example,
finds loyalty by expressing compassion,
finds honor by being faithful,
finds greatness by being a servant.

But Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20: 25-28 NLT).
