Jesus Saves Ministries' Fifth Annual Hope Food Baskets Giveaway

This Thanksgiving, we experienced the blessed joy in giving. We held our fifth annual Thanksgiving Hope Food Basket Giveaway on Monday, November 20th at The Life Conference Suite, distributing 52 food baskets with turkeys, chicken, and all the trimmings, plus turkey/ham vouchers to additional families in need.  We are thankful not because we are so good, but because God is so good.  He deserves ALL the glory! 
Churches, ministries, organizations worked together supplying food, turkeys and financial support including coordinating ministry, Jesus Saves Ministries,  The Church of Truth, Broadway Temple AME Zion Baptist Church, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Dare to Care Food Bank,  Withers Academy of Music,  Old Testament Exegesis, and WLOU Radio.  Thank you to volunteers Minister Marian Anderson, Pastor Emery Lee, and Deacon Jerome Price for their service to our families in this initiative. 
This is a major give back for us because in one day we were able to feed as many families as we have fed between January and October 2017 through our Food Pantry at The Life Conference Suite.  It is our mandate to be a change agent in West Louisville offering life, love, faith, and hope to residence who need it the most. HOPE has been defined as Having Only Positive Expectations. It is our prayer that through efforts like this, each of us can do our part to share the hope of Jesus Christ and to offer hope to those in need.  Keep watching for our Christmas Food Basket Giveaway in association with Liberty Tabernacle Church at The Life Conference Suite.  Sincerely, Min.

Showing Gratitude in An Ungrateful World

Have you ever heard people say "thank you" insincerely because its the politically correct thing to say, or as if to way to end a conversation, "you may go," or "you're dismissed"?  There is a difference between Godly and worldly thanks.  With worldly thanks, there is no "holler up" to God as the provider of all things, and neither is there "follow up" with actions commensurate with the sincerity of our hearts.  In an ungrateful world, entitlement reigns supreme.  Very few say thank you because they believe they're supposed to get to what blessings they receive.  Jesus healed ten lepers, but only one, a foreigner, a Samaritan returned to say thank you.  Jesus asked the whereabouts of the other nine, then told the one, "Rise and go; your faith has made you well" (Luke 17: 11-17).
As believers, we ought be thankful to God not just at Thanksgiving, but at all times. David said in Psalms 34, "I will bless the Lord at ALL times.  His praises shall continually be in my mouth...."  All ten lepers were cleansed, but only one was cleansed and made well. Don't miss the blessing of thanksgiving. Psalm 107 states, "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.  Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, those he redeemed from the hand of the enemy." And Hebrews, 12:28 states, "Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our 'God is a consuming fire.'"   What are you thankful to God for?  Let there be "follow up," with your "holler up."  Jesus saves!

ARE YOU THAT ONE?


Jesus healed ten lepers, but only the one, a foreigner, a Samaritan, followed up.  He returned to Jesus to say thank you. Jesus asked the whereabouts of the other nine, and then told the one, "Rise and go; your faith has made you well" (Luke 17: 11-18). Don't miss the blessing of giving thanks. Verse 15 states, "And one of them, when he saw that he was healed turned back, and with a loud voice gloried God."  When praises go up, brothers and sisters  blessings come down! All ten lepers were cleansed, but only the one was cleansed and made well.   This Samaitan, a Gentile, Jesus pointed out was more spiritually minded than the nine leprous Jews.  All were healed, but only the one gave thanks to Jesus.  And so, his salvation was complete (v19).  Let us give thamks in this season not because everybody else is doing it, or because it is the politically correct thing to do, but because we recognize where our blessings come from.  They are not of ourselves, but from the Lord!

As believers, we should be thankful to God not just at Thanksgiving, but at all times. The Bible says, "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus" (1 Thess. 5:18 NIV). The Bible declares, "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, those he redeemed from the hand of the enemy" (Psalms 107:1-2). And Hebrews, 12:28 states, "Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our 'God is a consuming fire.'"

Are you that one offering Godly thanks, "follow up" to your "holler up," your  petitions and supplications, requests in prayer? Are you that one, hollering out with praise and testimonies that honor God?  You can't beat God's giving! Jesus saves!

The Power of Persistent Prayer

I was asked recently, "How many times should we pray to God about the same thing?" God has given me the word that we need to be persistent in our prayers. Jesus tells us this in Luke 11:5-9 in the parable of the man who went to his friend at midnight for three loaves of bread. The Bible says that even if the man wouldn't open the door for sake of friendship, he would open it because his neighbor was persistent.   The Bible says ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, and knock and the door will be open.  The NLT translation says keep on asking, keep on seeking, and keep on knocking.  There's power in persistent prayer!

The story of Hannah praying to conceive a child is a story of persistence in prayer (1 Samuel 1:1-28). Hannah didn't talk back to her  rival, Peninnah who made fun of her for being childless; nor her partner, Elkanah who thought he was better than 10 sons; nor her priest, Eli who thought she was drunk.  She talked to Jehovah Jireh, her great and awesome Provider!  And soon Hannah conceived Samuel, one of the greatest prophets who ever lived.

The widow pleading before the unjust judge for justice is another example of persistence paying off (Luke 18:1-8). The widow had to go to a corrupt judge.  We can go to our heavenly Father (Ephesians 3:14).  the widow was a stranger.  We are God's children (John1:12).  The widow had no access to the judge.  We have constant access to God (Hebrews 10:19).  The widow came to the court of law.  We come to the throne of grace (Hebrews 4:16).  The widow had no lawyer.  We have Jesus as our advocate (1 John 2:1).  The widow had to wear down the judge before he really listened.  We already know that God hears our requests (Psalm 4:3).  If this poor woman received what she deserved from a corrupt judge, how much more will re receive from our loving heavenly Father?  As Jesus illustrated, persistence pays off.  Keep on praying!

Romans 12:12 says, "Rejoice in hope; be patient in affliction; be persistent in prayer."

We know that God does not always answer prayers the way we want Him to or expect Him to, however, the good news is that in these instances of persistent prayer, God said "yes"! This suggests that we have not, in many cases, because we ask not persistently. 

When it comes to prayer, it's important that we are consistently and persistently asking God for the lost to be saved and for our prayer requests to line up with His will for our lives! Prayer is not getting your will in heaven.  It is getting God's will on earth.  1 John 5:14-15 states, "And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him...."  We serve a God who is able to do exceeding, abundantly above all we can ask or think!

What are you asking God for? Post your prayer requests and prayers in the Jesus Saves Ministries group, and keep on posting them, be persistent! Jesus saves!
