DayBreaks for 05/31/12 – Sold Out

Matthew 22:37 (KJV) – Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

“Riches and things. That is the American dream. The more riches and things we possess the better off we are. We have been sold that agenda. It is part of who we are. We almost take it for granted. To be a blessed person in this society is to be flush with riches and things. The world and the Evil One will try to get us to conform to that agenda. When Christian people start defining Christian blessings in the same terms, when Christian people start defining blessings in terms of riches and things, then the world has simply won the battle. “Name it and claim it,” the “prosperity Gospel” says. “God does not want anyone to be poor.” Those slogans are a sure sign that the world has gotten the upper hand in the struggle for our soul.” – Richard A. Jensen, The Crucified Ruler, CSS Publishing Co., Inc.

Temperature check: to what have you sold out?  Will it stand with you before the great white throne and the One who sits on it, or will it be lost in the flames of a twinkling of an eye?

PRAYER:   In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. There are over 300 verses in the bible of God and the poor,his love for them. This song was written in behalf of the poor hope you like it:)
    1. Beauty for brokenness, hope for despair,

    Lord, in your suffering world this is our prayer.

    Bread for the children, justice, joy, peace,

    sunrise to sunset, your kingdom increase!

    Chorus:

    God of the poor, friend of the weak,

    give us compassion we pray.

    melt our cold hearts, let tears fall like rain;

    come, change our love from a spark to a flame.

    2. Shelter for fragile lives, cures for their ills,

    work for the craftsman, trade for their skills;

    land for the dispossessed, rights for the weak,

    voices to plead the cause of those who can’t speak.

    Chorus:

    3. Refuge from cruel wars, havens from fear,

    cities for sanctuary, freedoms to share.

    Peace to the killing fields, scorched earth to green,

    Christ for the bitterness, his cross for the pain.

    Chorus:

    4. Rest for the ravaged earth, oceans and streams

    plundered and poisoned — our future, our dreams.

    Lord, end our madness, carelessness, greed;

    make us content with the things that we need.

    Chorus:

    5. Lighten our darkness, breathe on this flame

    until your justice burns brightly again;

    until the nations learn of your ways,

    seek your salvation and bring you their praise.

    Chorus:

    (Graham Kendrick)
