Meditate in the Word..
Filled With Boldness July 17, 2018
When I confessed my fears to Pastor Doss, he said, "Let me tell you a story that took place about sixty miles from my home in Baghdad." Pastor Doss told me the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, the three friends who were commanded to bow to the image of the Babylonian king but refused. . . .
After reading the text, the pastor shared with me insights that I will remember for the rest of my life. He said, "Those three friends most likely prayed that God would deliver them from the fire, but God through His infinite wisdom decided to deliver them in the fire. Think about it. Because God decided to deliver them in the fire, they had the greatest worship experience of their lives. Right there in the fire, Jesus showed up, and they worshiped Him and walked with Him.

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.
