Deacon: Life of practice, prayer and preaching indulged in a communion with God.
They presented these men to the Apostles who prayed and laid hands on them. Acts 6:6
When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they began to be afraid. But He said to them, “It is I. Do not be afraid.” John 6:19-20
Acts 6:1-7, Psalm 33 & John 6:16-21
I’ve watched a man or two come full circle in their surrender to living God’s Truth becoming a Deacon helping the church to fulfill its mission on earth. They each have lived a special gift or desire to accomplish for God such as serving the poor, feeding the hungry or caring for the sick. They live a life of obedience to practice, prayer and preaching reaching into the depths of communities by the Bible they relish surrendered to the constant prayer God calls us all to proclaiming the Truth every step they take.
Ordained as intended constant witnesses not by the collar they place around their neck but by the predestined submission to living as Christ in charity. Here, in this place we find them unafraid seemingly walking on water alongside Jesus by their life conceded to His love. This courage comes from daily practice of reading your Bible with an open heart not so much learning to recite parables as much as to undertake each example of lessons learned in Scripture normalizing your life with the Commands God places on our heart to melt throughout our soul.
This should lead all of us to a life of prayer indulged in a communion with God relishing every thought as the love we embrace in communicating with our Creator. Oh, the Our Father comes to mind but as importantly the desire to tell God how you really feel about His love, His Son and His Salvation constantly in thanksgiving by the smile your prayer brings to your life displayed upon your lips. People are drawn to it and you openly proclaim it with zealous fervor submitting to preaching by words your action creates for His Truth. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to live unafraid of submitting to Your love. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. Day seven of a Novena for Russ Thoms and his daughter Serenity. Prayers for Kairos reunion today. Happy birthday prayers to my sister Theresa. LORD from Psalm 111:10 I chant: ”The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; prudent are all who practice it. His praise endures forever.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,

Jesus was Truly Human– In Honor of Pastor Rob Ladner
Was Christ real?
Appeared in flesh
Pain He truly felt
He won over Jew and Greeks
Perspective He completes
Strength being meek
Father He taught to seek
Jesus The Man
All things except sin
Samaritan woman would think
Why Jesus asked her for a drink
Why mention He was thirsty?
Why was He condemned?
Why else would He be hungry?
Why? He was the Son of Man without sin.
Jesus was truly human
He prayed for the Father’s Will
A man faced with death
No doubt a man they would kill
Divine Ever Still
