Pastor spoke on "My Ebenezer." Okay - what is the first thing you think of when you hear/see "Ebenezer"? Ebenezer Scrooge right? But the Biblical Ebenezer means "stone of help." When the Israelites defeated the Philistines, Samuel set up the memorial rock and said "Thus far the Lord has helped us." (See the verse for today below.)
Pastor reminded us to "raise our Ebenezers" often as memorials to God's help in our lives. We should Praise Him, Trust Him, have Faith in Him and do our human part by connecting and Commit to Him.
I looked at several videos with this song and
choose this one because it is very upbeat and vibrant.
I like the message and hope you enjoy it too!
A Verse for Today:
1 Samuel 7:12 (NIV)
12 Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer,[b] saying, “Thus far the LORD has helped us.”
We prayed for the Japanese Tsunami victims and survivors this morning. Sometimes we are locked in our own small circle of life and forget the pains, struggles and joys too, of those throughout the world. Let's try to remember to pray for one another from one end of the earth to the other.
