Maundy Thursday

Thursday, April 18, 2019   -   Category: COMMUNION

(1 Corinthians 11:23-34)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Please Lord bless me and my family today. Help us to never forget to honor You and praise Your holy name. Thank You for Your blessings. Let us be good stewards of those blessings and never forget to reach out to others and be a blessing to those who cross our path each day. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!

Communion. Today is sometimes referred to during Holy Week as Maundy Thursday, the night of the Last Supper. Communion is that wonderful act of remembering the sacrifice Jesus made as He literally gave His life for the sins of all mankind. There has been much confusion and poor teaching about this wonderful time when a follower of Jesus Christ fulfills the command the Lord gave to His followers to remember Him by partaking of the bread and wine, re-enacting that moment He shared with His disciples in the Upper Room during the Last Supper.

When we're dealing with anything, our final authority in all ...

Jesus...or Barabbas???

Wednesday, April 17, 2019   -   Category: CHOICE

(Mark 6:6-15, Romans 11:2-5)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, help me to not be like the people who called for Barabbas. Give me the strength to live my life for You today. The greatest way I can show my love for You, the greatest way I can call for JESUS and not Barabbas, is to live my life for You this day. May my thoughts, words, and deeds be pleasing and acceptable to You! In the name of Jesus...AMEN!

Did you know that the masses are still calling for Barabbas over Jesus today? As we enjoy the Easter season, we read some of those great passages in the Bible about the events of what we now call Palm Sunday through the death, burial, and resurrection of our Savior Jesus. One of the events that took place soon after Jesus was seized by the Romans was Pilate allowing the masses to vote for either Jesus or a criminal named Barabbas to be released as was custom during the Passover.

Pilate felt certain the people would ask for Jesus to be released, thus allowing ...

An act of humility this Easter!

(1 Thessalonians 3:12)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please guide my steps during this blessed time of the year. Today, I ask that You help me walk in Your light and strength and not in my own. Please help me this Easter season to reconcile the relationships of those people who I love and care about. Move on hearts oh Lord and let there be healing and restoration in these relationships for Your glory! Thank you for your many blessings that I often take for granted. Help me to do my best to glorify You in all of my thoughts, words, and deeds. This I ask in the name of Jesus...AMEN!

One of the common prayer requests I see daily are requests for God to reconcile family members whose relationships have been broken for a myriad of reasons. One of the tests of our spiritual maturity is the ability to forgive, pray for, and love someone that has wronged us. It is especially difficult when that someone is part of our family. I am going to challenge you today ...

Some people say, a Christian should NOT celebrate Easter!!!

Monday, April 15, 2019   -   Category: EASTER

(Matthew 28:1-8)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please help me to live this day honoring You in my thoughts, words, and deeds. Help me this day to live my life pleasing and acceptable to Jesus. Allow me to use my life to help someone else during this day, and be kind to everyone I come across no matter how they may treat me. Let Christ shine through me throughout this day oh Lord, be glorified through my life! In Jesus name I pray...AMEN!

Every year at this time, I get inundated with emails that read like doctrinal dissertations on why a Christian should NOT celebrate Easter. They mostly come from cults, but also from some Christian groups, primarily Messianic congregations that in recent years have been hijacked by Gentiles and preach and teach a very legalistic doctrine focused solely on the Old Testament. For the record, Passover is a Jewish Feast and NOT a Christian celebration. Jesus became the "perfect one-time sacrifice" for the sins of mankind.

These ...

(Hebrews 10:25)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, thank you for obediently going to Jerusalem on this day we celebrate as "Palm Sunday." It was an act of pure obedience. Please oh Lord, let ME be obedient each day and follow You. It is my heart's desire to live a life pleasing and acceptable to You, and that starts with my obedience. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!

During this Easter season, it is one of the two times a year that almost everyone who even professes to believe in God goes to church. Of course, the other is Christmas. I thought that this would give me an opportunity to address something that I deal with in the prayer requests I receive daily here at Liveprayer, and that is, how important it is to go to church. Not just on the special holidays, but to be actually part of a fellowship of believers all year long.

Let me make this point perfectly clear up front. Going to church and belonging to a body of believers IS NOT AN OPTION. Read ...

A battle bigger than 100 Super Bowls!!!

(1 Kings 18:21-40)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Father, I thank You for this day. I know that today was not promised to me, but it is a gift from You. Dear God, I trust Your Word today that tells me that I can give my burdens to You, that You will take it from me. I believe Your Word that tells me to cast my cares on You, because You care for me. In the name of Jesus, I surrender my needs and burdens to You. Fill me today with Your joy and with Your peace! In Jesus name I pray...AMEN!!!

God versus satan is like the NFL's current Super Bowl champion New England Patriots playing against the best high school football team in the nation. As good as that high school team may be, they are over-matched in every area and have NO CHANCE to win. There is one scenario however, in which the high school team is able to win. That is if the Patriots don't show up for the game and lose by a forfeit. If you read the last chapters of the Bible, you know that in the end God ...

(James 1:17)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to get through this day and the challenges that I will be facing today. Guide me, strengthen me, and give me wisdom as I make choices throughout this day. Please watch over my family and those I love in this world, and keep them safe. I love you Lord, and depend upon you each moment of each day. Bless me as I go through the day, living my life for your glory. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!

***IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Over the past month, I have been sharing on the TV program and in the Daily Devotional, the fact that there is a "religion of social justice," who is part of this religion, and that the only real enemy of this religion are Biblical Christians. I have included links to 2 critical Daily Devotionals on this issue for your reference and to share this important information with others, since most true Believers don't even realize there is a war going on!!!
