Meditate in the Word..
Revived and Reformed February 17, 2018
When I was a little boy, my dad said, "Johnny, did you see the man I baptized today?"
"Yes," I replied, wanting more food on my plate.
"At the top of the baptismal tank he turned and said, 'Hey preacher, the water didn't hurt my money,' and turning around, he showed me his money. 'Why did you bring your money into the baptistry?' I asked. 'I wanted my money converted,' he said. Johnny, never forget, your money must be converted."
That man wanted to be revived and reformed in his whole life, with no part of it left out. There truly is a need for revival and reformation.

MY WORLD IS A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE FIND HOPE..
When describing a pivotal moment in the life of Jesus with his disciples the bible says that Jesus “showed them the full extent of his love” (John 13:1 NIV).
How did Jesus show the disciples just how far his love would go? By taking off his outer garment, wrapping a towel around his waist and going from disciple to disciple—washing their feet.
The ultimate demonstration of love is to serve.
Setting aside our own agendas, in service we live out our commitment to the well being of others, often to our own discomfort.
Life often deals a painful blow to our fellow citizens of this world. It may leave a community without clean water, a child without access to education or it may convince a mother who struggles to provide for her children that there are no good options.
Every day the Spirit of God motivates people to act in selflessness and self sacrifice to change the world that others face from a place of hopelessness to one of hope.
Seventh-day Adventists believe that the admonition to love God with all of your mind, heart and soul naturally leads to the commitment to loving your neighbor through acts of kindness and service.
