Good Morning, Ministry Partner!

October 9, 2019

Be Encouraged by God's Word
While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

  Matthew 9:10-13, NIV

Wisdom from Fellow Pilgrims 
He can only come and give us the richest blessings of transformation and strength and power by allowing us to come into difficult places, even so difficult that we stretch our hands to Him and He can thus come in.  Thus we meet the things He permits, welcome them, use them, climb up by them, make them so many ladders to the heights of God.

Pray Together with Us

Thou, O Christ, art all I want
     More than all in thee I find!
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
     Heal the sick, and lead the blind;
Just and holy is thy name,
     I am all unrighteousness;
False and full of sin I am
     Thou art full of truth and grace.

   Charles Wesley
