A Thankful Life by Maurice Jackson

 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 words but their hearts or very distant from me.

Jesus also said that IF we love Him, we WILL keep His commandments.  Our conduct and HOLY lifestyle tells our HOLY GOD that we are grateful to be His children.  Our entire Christian existence should be a constant praise and thanks to God!  

Our natural children make us proud parents when they have followed the precepts and directions that we have given them throughout the years.  And once they have put these things into practice and they become upstanding, productive and respectful citizens, it reflects upon their adherence to the teaching and training they received from us.  This is to the praise of the parents themselves.  The implementation of these precepts demonstrates gratitude towards the source from which they were received.  

And we as children of God, in the very same manner, conduct our lives to the honor and praise of our Heavenly Father,  showing our gratitude through obedience to Him.  

The Word tells us in Ephesians 5:1 to be imitators of God as dear children!

Notice that is says "DEAR" children.  Now some offspring don't quite turn out to be DEAR children because of their constant disobedience.  Though, as parents, we still absolutely love them unconditionally,  they may not always follow in the way we presented to them and often take an opposite path.  It is our hope that they eventually turn toward the right path.

Conversely, as DEAR children, we are to imitate our Heavenly Father and reflect His holiness in our thoughts, behaviors and character.  Consistent with words of thankfulness is a lifestyle that reflects the same.  

Obedience to The Father should be our gratitudinal priority.

Jesus Saves Ministries Fed Seven Families at Thanksgiving

Thanks For Giving Food Donations 2014

Here are comments from three recipients:

To Whom It May Concern: Jesus Saves Ministries has proven once again that people are what they are all about. I was looking at not having a nice dinner, but because of people like them, and all of the generous donors, my family has received from the Lord both natural nourishment in the form of this food basket and spiritual nourishment in love and enouragment that we we have received, and we are extremely appreciative. God bless you all and Happy Thanksgiving - Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Keith Goatley

An anonymous single mother stated: "I hate having to ask for help, especially since my children and I were helping people with Thanksgiving and Christmas last year...We went three months without utilities only to get them on a couple of weeks ago with the help of Liheap. I'm unable to get Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas presents, or anything. I am so appreciative for this basket."

Happenings on the Jesus Saves Social Network

I am sharing with you a sermon from earlier this year at Mt. Horeb Missionary Baptist Church, a message entitled, "I Still Have Joy," from Luke 1:34-56 and the story of Mary's visit to her cousin Elizabeth's house. This message is not only about how to obtain joy, but also how to sustain your joy no matter what comes your way.  In separation, divorce, foreclosure, bankruptcy, illness, and death you can dare to declare, "I still have joy!"

Here is an brief excerpt from the sermon:

Joy is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22). Joy turns every frown upside down. It is that certain something that is on the inside that bubbles up on the outside. It bubbles up when you feel like giving up! It bubbles out when you feel like giving out! Not only is joy a divine character trait, it is that which gives us to our purpose. You've heard it said, "He/she/it is my pride and joy." Do I have a witness? As we grow in our relationship with the Lord, we should bear much fruit including joy. The story of Mary's visit with her cousin Elizabeth and shortly after teaches us about joy. The angel of the Lord appeared to Mary telling her she would be the mother of the Savior of the world. The angel told Mary that her relative Elizabeth was pregnant, too. I don’t know who I am talking to but some of you in here are pregnant. And some others in here are pregnant, too. There is a whole section in “labor and delivery.” It won’t be too long before the contractions begin. You are about to push past the wounds of war, push past the humiliation of homelessness, push past the distractions of disappointment, push past the pain of your past, push past the hurt to healing, and give birth to your joy! I don’t know what your joy is. Your joy may be your children.  Your joy may be your spouse.  Your joy may be your career.. Your joy be restored relationship. It may be on the way, the birth of that long awaited ministry, or church plant. What is your joy? For Mary, He was the Savior of the world. For Elizabeth, He was the heralder of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

 

 

 

Backstage at the West Louisville Performing Arts Academy 15th Annual Hope Awards Christmas Concert on December 7th, Brown Theatre

Bill and I backstage at the West Louisville Performing Arts Academy 15th Annual Hope Awards Christmas Concert, Sunday, December 7th at the Brown Theatre. WLPAA Founder and Director McDaniel Bullitt, his wife lovely Mamie, holding flowers, did an amazing job again this year with a concert that so beautifully ushers in the Advent season.

Kentucky natives, Michael and Annie Bolden were the honorees and recipients of this glass hands trophy. The musician and soloists have performed throughout the United States and around the world.

The spectacular boys and girls choirs rendered a number of traditional Christmas carols including "Carol of the Bells," "Behold the Star," "Credo," "The Christmas Song." They performed "Hero," by Mariah Carey and an upbeat rendition, "It Don't Mean A Thing," by jazz great Duke Ellington.  There were special performances by the Love Fellowship Church Liturgical Dance Team, the Christian Academy of Louisville Jazz Band, and the melodious operatic voices of Michael and Annie Bolden. Superintendent John C. Robinson, Sr, Pastor, Bible Way Church of God in Christ gave the invocation.  Amber Dixon and Alexandria Bluitt, ages 9 and 10, welcomed everyone, and Christen Boone, President/CEO Fund for the Arts offered expressions of appreciation to the academy.  Boys choir member Emmanuel King introduced the honorees.  Producer Sherlene Shanklin kept us all on point! This is the third year Bill and I have been  a part of this concert that not only enhances the cultural experience of West Louisville youth, but also showcases their gifts and talents. Keep listening for Christmas music by the West Louisville Performing Arts Academy on Praize Power 1350 WLOU and the new Praize 104.7 FM!

The Purple Christmas Tree Prayer Breakfast, A Real Holiday Treat

The DIVAS for Christ Purple Christmas Tree Prayer Breakfast was a real treat again this year.  It was held on Saturday, December 13th at Open Door Christian Church in Louisville. The guest speakers, Sherry Whitehouse, US Army Veteran and Founder, High Healing, Inc.; Rev. Cassandra Gray, Co-Pastor, New Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Shelbyville, KY (photo left); and emcee Ms. Krystal Goodner, WLOU/Praize 104.7 Radio did wonderful jobs. Veteran Mr. George Merrifield, Founder, The St. Jude Foundation gave a spirited speech in support of veterans. The gifted Julia Royston sung a beautiful song from her new Christmas CD, "A Christmas Miracle," the theme of the program.

Rev. Cassandra preached on love. She "went in" reminding us Who we are working with. Paraphrasing, she quoted John 3:16 and reminded us that we are working with a God who loves us so much that He wrapped Himself up and gave himself as a gift so that we could have relationship with Him;...we are working with a God who puts His "super" to our "natural."

This was a great way to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and honor local veterans (featured right). This year, members of the clergy peer group, Imitators for Christ participated in the candle lighting ceremony. I lit the white Christ candle in center, and presented HUGS (Hats, Underwear, Gloves, and Socks) to the veterans in attendance.

Jesus Saves Ministries was in the building.  Phyllis Webb,Usher Board President, Mt. Horeb Baptist Church and a member on the Jesus Saves Social Network was in the house. A college-age ministry leader at Mt. Sinai AOH Church, Khalia Goatley, a former intern at WLOU/WLLV, assisted me at the Jesus Saves Ministries table during the Shop Around.

A BIG shout out to Pastor Toni Hawkins, Open Door Christian Church and DIVAS for Christ for coordinating this breakfast in its fourth year. The food, fun, and fellowship nourished the mind, body and spirit.

Jesus, Our Greatest Gift

By: Min. Angela Lee Price
Jesus Our Greatest Gift

(v1) Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem.
(v2) Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
(v 10) When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

(v11) And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
Who were these wise men? They were outsiders, Gentiles called Magi or Magicians. They were from Persia, modern day Iraq. Magi among the Persians were their intellectuals, philosophers and priests. Persia and the eastern nations were known for their star gazing, astrology, and idol worship. God in his infinite wisdom and sovereignty spoke to the Magi in their language of the stars and drew them from afar, some 800 miles to worship the new born King. You should be shouting right there! The Bibles says at the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow, every astrologer, magician, and soothsayer, and tongue shall confess Jesus as Lord!


No doubt their gifts were wrapped with beautiful bows and ribbons of multi colors, cut from the finest cloth. Can’t you hear the rapper, Fabolous, “Just throw it in the bag!... Look at the price tags? Where they do that at? Just throw it in the bag!” They traveled, following the extraordinary star, to present their best to the new born King, money and products from their far-away country, gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Some commentaries suggest they offered gold as tribute to the King in Jesus, rendering to Caesar that which was Caesar’s; frankincense to the God in Jesus, for God was often honored with the smoke of incense; and myrrh to the Man in Jesus, that should he die, the myrrh could be use to embalm him. The wise men gave gifts to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

I stopped by to ask, what’s inside your bag? What are you giving Jesus for Christmas?
