It is a joy to be in the service of God. To see souls come to Christ is the greatest feeling of all. I love to see lives change for the better. My life is an example of a life full of sin but God freed me from bondage. Because I turned to Christ, I know anyone can do it. I was so far gone, in the ways of the flesh, but the Lord was able to revive my soul. I could not see but God gave me sight. God took my blindness that I might see. I could not see the beauty of His ways. I once found pleasure in sexual sin but Jesus took those passions and gave me love towards one another. I no longer live to fulfill my own lusts but to help others in need. I am so grateful for God’s grace. I am grateful that He took someone so wretched as me into His fold. His mercy gave me new life. Because of His love, I am forgiven. I am covered by His blood. I am grateful for repentance. I have been given another chance at life because of Jesus. I go out to share God’s love because of all He has done for me. I am amazed at His love for me and even more so by His love for mankind. Jesus is our Savior. He is our judge. I pray that people of all the earth will lend an ear to the Lord. May all people give ear to the Spirit of God. I know that even those that persecute me can be saved. If they might be open to the truth, all things are possible.
Don’t worry about those that rise up against you. There are enemies against the faith of God but even they can be saved. It may hard to see now but don’t give up hope. They may have 1“not set God before them”, but I pray that a change of heart may occur. 2Just like Paul, who persecuted the saints of God, anyone can be rescued. No matter how far gone we are, there is a way out. There is a new beginning for anyone, no matter how great or small their sins may be. Do you believe that Jesus can break your chains of addiction? He sure can. He is willing to do all things in your life, if you might trust in Him. Your faith will make you whole. 1“God is mine helper: the Lord is with them” that seek His face. The presence of the Holy Spirit is a blessing from God, most high. I have light that scatters all darkness. The influences of the enemy have no power over me. God 1“shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.” If people continue to revival against the truth of God, till the end, they will have to suffer for their sins. They will have to pay for their evil deeds. I pray that this may not happen. May all mine enemies wake up, this day, oh Lord. Bring them to their knees, in all humility. It is a great blessing to know You. I praise thy Holy Name. Thank You for delivering me 1“out of all trouble”.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, You are my strength. You are my shield, when my enemies are round about. They can do no evil against me for You are there. You lift up my soul. I am not weak for You are by my side. I have the greatest gift in You. You have made me whole again. I am grateful just to be a part of Your plan. Use me to find the lost. Guide me, every day of my life. Lead me to the broken. Help me lend a helping hand. Your love has taught me to show comfort to the weary. May your truth be spoken through my mouth. Open my mouth, that You may fill it with Your Spirit. I trust in You. You lead me to all truth. My Lord, I am grateful to be led by You. I praise You. I glorify in Your Name. I love You. Amen.

21 Corinthians 15:1-11 (KJV)
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.
