    The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEBWhen I was growing up, we us...

    RHM Devotional: Heroes and Monsters from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the potential of being a Hero, or a Monster, that exists inside each one of us. We get to choose. Once when Jesus was preaching from a boat, He told a parable about a man that sowed wheat in H...

    He said to them, 'Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation.' Mark 16:15 WEBJesus spoke these words to the eleven Apostles before He ascended to heaven. There is so much that could be said about this, but today we cover 'The Gospel.' The word Gospel means 'glad tidings, good...

Love in Action

  • A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, just like I have loved you; that you also love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:34 WEB

    At the last supper Jesus arose and washed the disciples feet. Then He told them to love one another, just as He had loved them, and by this all people would know that they were His disciples.

    His love was love in action and not just words. We are to show our love by serving each other. When people see you do this it means more than mere words can say. People don't care how much know, until they know how much you care.

    Love others, as God loves us. Forgive others, and God will forgive us. Even in the model prayer Jesus said 'Forgive us our sins, For we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us' (Luke 11:4). Keep it in balance, because it does not mean that you are a doormat for someone trying to manipulate you.

    Be kind. Be loving. Be gentle. If you get the chance to simply open the door for someone today, do it. You can be a powerful witness without opening your mouth.

    Prayer: Father, help me show Your love on the earth today. Give me the grace to endure whatever I face with a smile because I am walking under Your power, and not my own. Speak through me, heal through me, and when people meet me, let them be meeting You. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Good morning! Just FYI, all of the 2015 contribution statements have now been sent to those who need one for their taxes, which is anyone with one or more donations of $250 or more. If you did not, we probably need to get your contact info, so please let us know. For all others, your checks and bank statements should suffice. but if you do want to have a statement for any reason, please do contact us to let us know, and we will take care of it! In either case, thank you so much for your support of this ministry, y''all bless us more than you will ever know!

Norman Glaze Sr
Norman Glaze Sr I am continually convicted from God The Holy Spirit that I am supposed to be a light unto the world. It's so easy to let the flesh take over. Certainly Luke was right when he said men ought always to pray, and not to faint. Great message. Love and Prayers
