WEEKLY LESSON MAIL-OUT...OR.....GREETING WITH A 'HOLY KISS'

Hi Everyone!

Oh the promises of God for our 'inheritance'! Wow...we will own heaven with all believers, another demonstration of the love that Jesus has for us. Good lessons today for improving our contentment and serving/loving God- have a listen if you have the time. (www.hiswayonline.org)

The Bible study today was on Revelation Chapter 21 where God makes 'all things new"! This includes a new heaven, a new earth, a new Jerusalem, and our new bodies for all eternity. The description of heaven is crazy good, but you know what? The best thing is that we will be face to face with God...always! The second best thing is all the things that God takes away, things no longer needed for salvation since all those that can be saved will be in heaven. God 'wipes away' all those things He has used to draw us close to Him for salvation; tears, sorrow, pain, death, and thodr storms of life, which will pass away with the old earth. The new heaven, new earth, and the new city of Jerusalem is where we will live forever with Him. How wonderful is that.

The sermon was on Luke chapter 10. We learn about Jesus sending out the second batch of disciples to prepare for His travels through many cities and towns on His way to the cross. And we are like them trusting Jesus to provide for our witness to him and understanding His warning about pride as we succeed by His power and authority. Jesus is then questions about receiving eternal life by a lawyer for the temple and teaches using the parable of the good Samaritan. The lawyer knew the law about loving God, but did not practice it. In the parable, the two religious guys 'pass by on the other side' of the road from the dying man where the god Samaritan is the only one in the bunch showing compassion on a Jew who needed help. The lawyer had to admit that the Samaritan was the good neighbor to the man in need making him his neighbor. Jesus told the lawyer that he indeed knew the law about obtaining eternal life...but that he needed to go and be that good neighbor. But that good neighbor stuff isn't easy to do and it does not happen unless you have God's grace...and along with His grace comes the mercy and compassion we need to have to allow the Holy Spirit in us to serve Him. Don't move to the other side of the road when God puts someone or something in your path the He wants you to do. Don't miss the blessings that Jesus puts in our walk through service to Him by serving others. Jesus closed the chapter with the story about the meeting with Martha and Mary, who soon would become good friends. Martha was too busy being a good servant to hear the words of Jesus, and Mary was so captivated by Jesus and His words that she neglected her servant duties. I suppose the message is here that we need to be and do both- serve and sit at Jesus' feet!

Blessings!
