Happenings On the Jesus Saves Social Network - November 3, 2011

By: Min. Angela Lee Price

"Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift. Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny" (Matthew 5:23-26 NIV).

Often on Fridays, I tweet, "T.G.I.F., Thank God I'm Forgiven (And It's Friday)! I teach Spiritual Gifts at church, and often in Spiritual Gifts class, I will use the acromyn "TGIF" as an icebreaker by asking members to unscramble it to form new words, phrases, and sentences. This exercise helps each person to understand that they have at least one "GIFT," and they "FIT IT," because they are "GIFT-IT" of God to do the work that He has called them to do (Ephesians 4:7-8).
The whole discussion of forgiveness is important because the Bible places forgiveness above or before giftedness, "Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.
It is sad to see gifted people at odds with each other in the church. What is worse is to see bickering parties continue their anomosity for years, even decades. However, the Bible says not only is there a frequency within which we are to forgive, seven times seventy (Matt. 18:21), but that there is a timeframe within which we are to forgive, "quickly" (v 25). We should do everything we can to resolve our differences often and to settle them out of court, Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge (v 25).

Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gifts you have given the church for the equipping of the saints and for the building up of the body of Christ. Today, we pray for pastors and preachers. Lord, Your Word says, "But how can they call on Him they have not believed in? How can they believe without hearing about Him? And how can they hear with a preacher?" (Romans 10:14). We thank you for pastors and preachers who are not ashamed of the Gospel and who rightly divide the Word of Truth. We thank you that Your Word shall not return void!

We ask You, Lord to rebuke those pastors and preachers who are adulterating Your Word for monetary gain, and leading Your sheep astray. Protect Your flocks from wolves in sheep's clothing, we pray. May these men and women repent and return to their first love. We ask forgiveness, Father for worshipping our pastors instead of You. Keep our clergy spiritually and physically fit through higher education and wise counsel. Restore to us a prophetic church. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Congratulations to PraizePower 1350 WLOU Radio recently nominated for a 2012 Stellar Award for Medium Market Radio Station of the Year.

On receiving the nomination, WLOU/WLLV Radio General Manager Bill Price states, "It is a tremendous honor when you think about the number of gospel radio stations around the country, and you are narrowed down to 16 stations in all categories. It makes you feel proud for the community, and the radio station. It lets you know the hard work that you put in has been well received by others looking into and evaluating the market."

"I believe that Tyler Perry has a special gift in how he reaches the masses through his talent. He is able to step into the lives of others to relate to them in such a way that people don't feel that because of his status that he is above them in way." Rev. Syvoskia Pope
"What I have is God's mercy and grace. I am rich with HIS mercy and grace. The haves who are selfish and about themselves can never be rich as I am no matter what. And sometimes, the haves put on this facade while they are drowning in debt. Many try to "keep up with the Joneses", losing their souls. Mercy. With God's help, with my persistent and consistent prayer life, God always make a way for me, HE always opens a door for me, He keeps food on my table, shoes on my feet, clothes on my back. HE has even placed my feet on solid ground." Therese Warrick

"God has once again given us the joy of laughter in this next production. I feel blessed to know that God will use humor and laughter, to allow us to see ourselves from an outer circle looking in. We have so much that we have to be reminded that we don't need to complain. But bless others that don't have what we have. We are sooo rich in God!" Rev. Linda Moore

Thank you for your prayers for me and my family during our time of bereavement. God is good! He provided traveling grace to me, my husband, and to my family who traveled from New York to the wonderful homegoing celebration of my aunt Louise Smith on Monday, October 24th, Mars Hill Baptist Church, Dallas, Georgia. The pastor, Rev. Robert Bryant officiated. Mars Hill is the oldest African American church in Paulding County, Georgia. It was founded in 1866 and is 145 years old. My uncle John Smith, aunt Louise's husband was laid to rest there in August 2005.
I was blessed with the awesome assignment of delivering the eulogy. The Lord gave me a passage in the book of Romans on that super highway to heaven, the Roman Road.The message was entitled, I Shall Live And Not Die, based on Romans 10:13, "For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." I stated that there is a time to be born and a time to die, a time to weep and a time to mourn (Ecclesiates 3:1-4). Approximately 1,700 have died in the war in Afghanistan and 4,500 have died in the war in Iraq.Death happens to us all, Michael Jackson, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Dorothy Height, Osama Bin Laden, Muammar Gaddafi, and Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth who was eulogized on October 24th as well.
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! November is here and many ministries are gearing up for fall and winter revivals, special Thanksgiving and Christmas programs, and missions events. People are encouraged when that see God in their neighborhoods because they know soon He will be on their street knocking on their door! Isn't God good?!
This is just a reminder to post your church, ministry, and public service events, and announcements on the Events Page on the Jesus Saves Social Network. Let us help you spread the word in telling people in our communities, region, the nation, and the world was great and mighty things God is doing in our churches, communities, and in our lives. Post your events before November 7th, and we will blast them out to the entire network at no charge to you. Remember, it is not Mohammad, Buddha, Confucius, nor New Age that saves. Jesus saves! Jesus Saves Ministries celebrating six years of lifting up Jesus Christ.
