2016 12 18 Sunday

Note: Starting this week I will be visiting my brother in Connecticut, our son in California and our daughter in the Philippines until the end of January and will be off-line.

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 1:18 (NKJV)
      Father, please help us to be found with your life in us through your Holy Spirit - the life of Jesus.

But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 1:20 (NKJV)
      Jesus, help us receive and accept all those who have found new faith through your Holy Spirit.

And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21 (NKJV)
      Jesus, save your people from their sins. Be the conviction of your Holy Spirit, help us all recognize our need for your saving work in our lives.

Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, Romans 1:1-2 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, separate us to the gospel of God which you have promised through your word.

Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name, Romans 1:5 (NKJV)
      Jesus, bring us to the obedience of faith and send us forth into our community and to the nations.

Moreover the LORD spoke again to Ahaz, saying, "Ask a sign for yourself from the LORD your God; ask it either in the depth or in the height above." But Ahaz said, "I will not ask, nor will I test the LORD!" Then he said, "Hear now, O house of David! Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also? Isaiah 7:10-13 (NKJV)
      LORD, have mercy on us when we weary you by refusing to do what you ask of us. Bring us to repentance.

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14 (NKJV)
      Emmanuel, come among us with your power.

Restore us, O God; cause Your face to shine, and we shall be saved! Psalm 80:3 (NKJV)
      Restore us, O God of hosts; cause Your face to shine, and we shall be saved! Psalm 80:7 (NKJV)

He who has ears to hear, let him hear! Matthew 11:15 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, please give me ears to hear.

These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever. For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage. 2 Peter 2:17-19 (NKJV)
      Jesus, preserve me from such dry wells. Let your living water flood my soul.

You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come. Psalm 102:13 (NKJV)
      Jesus, come now with your favor on your people.

He shall regard the prayer of the destitute, and shall not despise their prayer. Psalm 102:17 (NKJV)
      Father, hear the prayers of the destitute.

The children of Your servants will continue, and their descendants will be established before You." Psalm 102:28 (NKJV)
      Jesus, establish my children and theirs before you.

They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man's voice restrained the madness of the prophet. 2 Peter 2:15-16 (NKJV)
      Father, rebuke me whenever I need it and get me back on the right path.

"Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, who write misfortune, which they have prescribed to rob the needy of justice, and to take what is right from the poor of My people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless. Isaiah 10:1-2 (NKJV)

Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?" This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear. John 8:3-6 (NKJV)
      My father-in-law used to say that Jesus was writing, "Where is the man?" Lord, set us free from judgment and condemnation of others. Help us acknowledge our own sins before looking at others' sins.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 1:2 (NKJV)

      Holy Spirit, please help me grow in patience and faith. Thank you for the tribulations and sorrows of life.

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!" Isaiah 6:1-3 (NKJV)
      FAthher, restore to your people visionof your glory and your holiness.

So I said: "Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of hosts." Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said: "Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged." Isaiah 6:5-7 (NKJV)
      Jesus, we have become a people of unclean lips. Cleanse us and purify our converstions.

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: "Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me." Isaiah 6:8 (NKJV)
      LORD, I am will to go wherever you send me.

Offer to God thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High. Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me." Psalm 50:14-15 (NKJV)

      I am no longer my own, but thine. Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt; put me to doing, put me to suffering; let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for thee; let me be full, let me be empty; let me have all things, let me have nothing; I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal.
      And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
      From the Watch Night Service by John Wesley.

In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!" Matthew 3:1-2 (NKJV)
      Father, please help us recognize your kingdom as it comes among us.

For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying: "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the LORD; make His paths straight.' " Matthew 3:3 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, help us proclaim the kingdom in whatever wilderness we find ourselves.

Then Jerusalem, all Judea, and all the region around the Jordan went out to him and were baptized by him in the Jordan, confessing their sins. Matthew 3:5-6 (NKJV)
      Jesus, move the people of this region to go forth confessing their sins and being baptized by water and your Holy Spirit.

Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, Matthew 3:8 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, help us bear fruit worthy of repentance.

For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, bring your people to the patience and comfort contained in Scripture so that they may have hope.

Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God. Romans 15:7 (NKJV)
      Jesus, help us receive one another and everyone you send us, just as you received us.

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 (NKJV)
      Lord GOD, fill me up with joy and peace in believing so that I may abound in hope by the power of your Holy Spirit.

He will bring justice to the poor of the people; He will save the children of the needy, And will break in pieces the oppressor. Psalm 72:4 (NKJV)
      Come soon, Lord Jesus.

Then, in the hearing of all the people, He said to His disciples, "Beware of the scribes, who desire to go around in long robes, love greetings in the marketplaces, the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts, who devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation." Luke 20:45-47 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, set the church free from those televangelists who promise what they can't deliver in order to gain money.

And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, "Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had." Luke 21:1-4 (NKJV)
      Jesus, help us recognize our poverty before you and give out of our poverty as this widow did.

for you know what commandments we gave you through the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; 1 Thessalonians 4:2-5 (NKJV)
      Holy Spirit, set your people from pornography and sexual immorality; and we pray that we may keep our bodies in sanctification and honor.

"Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, for the reward of his hands shall be given him. Isaiah 3:10-11 (NKJV)
      Father, help us recognize the consequences of our deeds for good or ill.

Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. Psalm 107:8-9 (NKJV)
      Jesus, please give us thankful hearts.

Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, so that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; so He guides them to their desired haven. Psalm 107:28-30 (NKJV)
      LORD, I cry out to you: calm my distress, and bring me to the haven of your house.

And He has exalted the horn of His people, the praise of all His saints -- of the children of Israel, a people near to Him. Praise the LORD! Psalm 148:14 (NKJV)
      Jesus, help me to be near you at all times and in all places.

A word received: Look to me with the longing of your heart.

For, in fact, we told you before when we were with you that we would suffer tribulation, just as it happened, and you know. 1 Thessalonians 3:4 (NKJV)
      Jesus, please help me accept the tribulations you send me.

But now that Timothy has come to us from you, and brought us good news of your faith and love, and that you always have good remembrance of us, greatly desiring to see us, as we also to see you 1 Thessalonians 3:6 (NKJV)
      Father, thank you for the good news of those saints who remain faithful.

Now may our God and Father Himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way to you.

      Holy Spirit, establish my heart in God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.

The LORD stands up to plead, and stands to judge the people.

What do you mean by crushing My people and grinding the faces of the poor?" Says the Lord GOD of hosts. Isaiah 3:13-15 (NKJV)
      Lord GOD, turn the hearts of the rulers of this land to the poor and the oppressed.

He delivered me from my strong enemy, From those who hated me, For they were too strong for me. Psalm 18:17 (NKJV)
      Lord, deliver us from our strong enemy.

A word received: Look to me when the road is hard and stony.
