National Gospel Artist J J Hairston Headlines St. Jude Benefit Concert In Louisville
We got a chance to chat briefly with gospel artist JJ Hairston after his spirited and oh so powerful praise and worship set at the St. Jude Benefit After Party Celebration Friday night, January 29th at Portland Baptist Church. It was so great seeing so many young adults in the building up, hands lifted, worshipping to Hairston favorites, After This, You're Mighty, Incredible God, Incredible Praise and others. We had a high time in the name of the Lord! Jason Clayborn, Jay & The Team and the Portland Baptist Church Praise Team also ministered in song. The celebration was hosted by 104.7 FM and St. Jude Christian Research Hospital. In all, WLOU/WLLV has raised $107,000 for St. Jude cancer research.

A statement from Chef Reginald Dishman, Dishone Catering...
This is a brief recap from my sermon, "What Are you Thirsting For," at Christian Health Care Center West on Sunday, January 31st. I thank my brother, Rev. Michael Lee for the invitation; Min. Marian Anderson, Demetrius Gunn, Rev. Dennis Prince, and Yvette Bentley for participating on the program.
Webster Dictionary defines “thirst” as an uncomfortable feeling that is caused by the need for something to drink; a strong desire for something; a craving or longing, a thirst for success. To desire for something is a part of what it means to be human. What is it that people often thirst for? Some thirst for power. They want to rule and control governments and economies, to be King or Queen or President of the United States. Some thirst for knowledge. That is why people often spend thousands of dollars for college degrees. Some thirst for fortune and fame. The Bible warns us about the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, and declares the love of money to be the root of kinds of evil. The thirst for love is natural. It is in our DNA to love because humans were created in the image of God and God is love. The woman at the well, however, thirsted for love in all the wrong places. She had five husbands and the one she was living with was not her husband. What are you thirsting for?
Then there is the thirst for water. Our bodies are made up of 60%-70% water and we need it to survive. Research has shown that we can survive longer without food than we can without water. We can survive three weeks without food, but only one week without water. Nothing quenches your thirst after a long run or vigorous workout like a tall cup of cold water. Are you drinking enough water and the right kind of water? The people of Flint, Michigan are not. Through no fault of their own, they have been made to drink for the past two years cloudy, toxic, lead-contaminated, odorous river water. Many have gotten sick, and ten have died from Legionnaire's Disease. The FBI is investigating. The people of Flint are thirsting for clean water. Jesus thirsted on the Cross. What are you thirsting for?
Why was Jesus thirsty?Jesus was thirsty because of how he was structured, he was fully God and fully Divine; because how he secured, for others first, and himself last; and because of how he satisfied, the Scriptures and not self. Isn't it ironic that in this crazy, mixed up world within which we live, that we are quick to satisfy self and not Scripture? Having been separated from his Father for the first time in his life, above all, Jesus thirsted for God. Jesus was thirsty because of how He satisfied the Father at the Cross, and He ought to be our source of satisfaction today. Drink from his cup!
I am counting my blessings and living with expectancy in 2016! My Scripture meditation has taken me to 1 Corinthians 15:58, "Be steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord...." To be steadfast means I must to be committed, dedicated, and constant in lifting up the name of Jesus. In 2016, not only do I want to be steadfast, but also unmoveable, that is stable, not always shifting about, but rooted and grounded; like a tree planted by the rivers of water.... To "always abound" is to be continually fruitful in the new year, not sporadically nor sparingly, but with regularity, a harvest reaper yielding fruit in due season. I must remember I will reap what I sow, more than I sow, and later than I sow. the phrase, "In the work of the Lord" tells me I must be on assignment; Lord, let me be on assignment in all I do or not do it at all! Lord, help me to be compassionate, concerned, and considerate of the needs of my family, my community and of the least, the left out, and the lost.
I think this is a challenging Scripture because we have tendency to rest on our laurels sometimes. Its challenging too because it says we should not be subject to flight or fancy, and every whimsical notion. Too many of us are good at starting but not finishing. Let us have that spirit of completion in 2016, the way Jesus did even as he agonized on the cross for our sins, got up on the third day, ascended, and sent the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. The last phrase of this passage states, "forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord." When we meet the Lord, He will consider our deeds done in His name. That puts me at peace knowing my work won't be in vain.
Thanks, everyone for following the Jesus Saves Social Network, participating, commenting, and sharing our posts over the years. We know that our work here was not in vain. We were exercised in the Scriptures, and certainly grew if not a little bit. We got to meet so many wonderful people here from all walks of life in real way and tangible ways as we served the significant purpose of lifting up Jesus Christ. Though this platform is closing in a few weeks, our ministry continues. Please be sure to follow us on our other social media platforms as we continue Jesus Saves Ministries Louisville in 2016. We appreciate you! Happy New Year, everyone, and be sure to be steadfast, unmoving, and abounding in telling the world Jesus saves!!!
Consistent with words of thankfulness is a lifestyle that reflects the same.Our LIVES should exhibit appreciation to our Lord Jesus Christ who is the one who SAVED our LIVES. We can say 'Thank You, Lord' with our lips while in our living, we actually dismiss Him. Jesus said in Matthew 15:8 that some come near to me with their…Continue
