Sunday Words of Encouragement August 13, 2017

We were away for the weekend, having taken our daughter, son-in-law and three grand-kids on a "mystery ride". DH brought the motor home to Mexico Beach so the kids could have a last summer weekend at the beach. (They started school on Thursday.) I even went to the beach for an hour. I’m not a beach fan but I had my MP3 to listen too and it was fun to watch my daughter and youngest toss a ball in the surf.

This morning we went to an 8am service on the beach. It was hot with a little bit of shade. The pastor played a guitar to lead the singing. The message was based on Acts 10:9-48 where Peter was shown a vision and led to share the Good News with the gentile family of Cornelius.

The message noted that God shows no favoritism but “accepts from every nation the one who fears Him and does what is right”. The pastor reminded us a favorite childhood song: Jesus Loves the Little Children, “all the children of the World; red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight….” The pastor noted that we are to make disciples by guiding, not steering.

That is certainly a reminder that we are to love all people, no matter their color, race or background. We are to share the love of Christ with all people we come into contact with as we never know when a heart is seeking or ready to turn to the loving grace of salvation which is the gift of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

I had picked one song but found this one instead. 
Sorry it doesn’t have lyrics on the screen but the words fit.
(Our church pastor enjoys Christian rap like this.)
Verses for Today:
Acts 10:34-36
34 Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism 35 but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right. 36 You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.

Once again, Lord I pray, help me to show your love in my daily walk.
