Weekly Lesson Mailout

Hi Everyone!

Gust a quick note to share some things we learned from Bible study and worship today...have a listen if you have the time (

The Bible study today was on Ester Chapter 3 where we learn the king hired a second in command, Haman, who is an Agagite (sworn enemy of the Jews). He then decrees that all will bow to Haman, but Mordecai cannot and will not bow to an enemy of the one true Living God. So Haman sets out to devise a plot (inspired by Satan I am sure) to kill all the Jews and take all their mula. The king is talked into this by the increase money this will bring into the kingdom treasury; he is a bit sort in his treasury over his looses in trying to take Greece....remember the movie the '300', yep...that's the battle. He lost over 200,000 men and didn't do anything but deplete the treasury. We see from this chapter another of many attempts by Satan to derail God's plan for His chosen people who were prospering in Persia. As you might expect, that's not going to happen here. But know that this is going on today, and we too are now God's chosen people, and the spiritual battle rages....yet he protects us with his hedge row...and his angels. Thank you Lord!

The sermon today was on Matthew Chapter 6. Jesus continues to teach us about things important to us as the salt and light of the world. Today the lessons were on giving in private (not boasting), how to pray, how and why to fast, serving God only and not mammon, and living without anxiety or worry. We have all these good instructions for sure, but none of this can be done without the help of God in us...the Holy Spirit. Pray, live out the beatitudes, keep your priorities straight (God first), and don't worry. Things we cannot do anything about...give those things to the Lord. If we can't do anything about something, know that it's above or 'pay grade'. Let go.....let God!
