Abide in me

Lent 2013 Cover   1 John 2:18-28

Question for reflection:
What do you listen to on the radio? Online? On television? Which songs have you memorized the lyrics of? Whose calls do you always answer? Whose words do you pay attention to? What messages do you want to remain with you?

Prayer for the day:
As I quiet the world around me, I pray for Your message to be loud in my heart. I pray for anointing, O God, that I may recognize the things that are most important and most true. Amen.

~ Gimbiya Kettering, Intercultural Ministries Coordinator

One thought on “Abide in me

  1. My Dear brother in christ
    Grace and peace to you from our heavenly father, soon coming saviour Jesus Christ.
    My Dear Brother: I feel very happy to introduce to you as V.Sudheer, an evangelist serving the Lord for the last 9 years evangelizing inVemuru and its rural villags ministering in 10 churches with 5 co-pastors who are young, anointed and dedicated to the service of God. We reach the rural unreached villages, campaign for 2 days in each and every village, knowck door to door, distribute tracts, pamphlets and Bible material, pray for the sick and needy conduct street preaching proclaiming gospel as Jesus said at Mark 13:10, starting churches according to Matt 16:18 and winning souls according to Romans 10:9 and Matt 3:11.
    I am in much prayer like to state that I hailed from a poor respectable Christian family, dedicated to the service of God as Full Time Worker. For the abundance of our service I have started a ministry in the name and style of BRETHERN MINISTRIES, Registered No.542 with the government and working as per its rules and regulations.
    Part of our service we have taken in adoption 20 orphan children as Jesus said Matt 18:4-6, matt 19:14 and and mark 10:14-16 providing accommodation, food, clothing, education etc.,
    As ours is a small Ministry and the resources are very nominal, and as there is a lot of work yet to do, we were not in a position to provide the needy to our orphan children. At this time I invite your kind attention to the scripture referred to from Matt 13:37. You are well aware India is a vast Country with more than 110 Crores of population and there is still a lot of work yet to be done in our area.
    Ours is an Independent Ministry striving for Him with utmost faith only without any help and support from within and abroad.
    We therefore much interested to join in your Fellowship to serve for Him and we are confident that we will be in position to win many a perishing souls to add to His kingdom with our joint efforts.
    The Lord is Great as He is doing wonders, sign, healings and miracle salvations for His soon coming opening the Gospal doors wide. I therefore invite you my Dear Brother to kindly pray for visiting India to Minister with us as Apostle paul visited to Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Thessalonians to strengthen the Churches. Lord willing and if you are interested, I am prepared to send on to you the photo pictures showing the activities of our Ministry by scan by attachment for kind parayer.
    We were all praying God for your, for your family, for the abundance of your Ministry and for your untiring services for Him and request you to continue to pray for us, for our Ministry, for the orphan children to get the needy and for our Invitation to you to visit India to Minister with us soon. May email: vemurusuther@yahoo.in
    With much love in Christ Jesus.
    I look to receive your Mail soon.
    Yours Brother by grace alone.
