Weekly Devotional Thoughts It has been almost a year since the tragic killings at the Pulse nightclub. The UK has just suffered two terrorist attacks and here in Orlando, workplace violence’s has taken at least six lives. With each incident of senseless violence being broadcast across the globe instantly and into our lives, it is easy to get overwhelmed. Our media outlets give us the false impression that a majority of the population is self-serving and full of hate. I believe differently. Every day people counter this negative narrative with their acts of kindness and love but since this does not sell, we do not hear their stories. It is a shame the following examples of love and compassion are not headline stories. A young teenage girl required spinal surgery but her mother did not have the funds to cover the out of pocket expenses. The members of St Luke and St John Lutheran churches worked together to raise the needed funds. Azteca Mexican Restaurant has graciously donated proceeds to All Saints Lutheran (ASL) and combined with donations from the congregation; many homeless schoolchildren in the area have been able to have a meal. Recently ASL and BJ’s have each held separate fundraisers to help a young mother offset some of her bills while she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer. The Orange County Commissioners have donated backpacks to ASL to be filled with school supplies and distributed. Every year teachers spend their own funds to provide for the children in their classrooms. Parents willingly give up material possessions to provide for their children. They also rearrange their schedules to accommodate their children’s activities. What about the millions of dollars donated when a natural disaster strikes? Many ask the question, where is God when tragedies occur. My answer is He is right there with the victims, weeping alongside of them. He is there in the immediate aftermath sending His children to their aid. He is providing us with the goods and materials we need to ease the sufferings of others. The majority of people are willing to step up and help others in need. Most people are good, loving individuals whose stories are ignored because they are boring and “not news worthy”. Genesis 1:31 “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good…” Blessings: Pastor Brian

Weekly Devotional Thoughts Have you noticed we make life so much more difficult than it needs to be? When we should be listening, we are talking. When we should be seeking guidance, we are already executing our plans. We go it alone when help is at our fingertips. We worry when worrying will not change anything. As Jesus was preparing His disciples for His departure, He let them know God had more in store for them. John 16:7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you”. The Holy Spirit is our supporter, comforter, intercessor, and counselor. The Holy Spirit comforts the saved, convicts the guilty, intercedes on our behalf, and directs us to the truth. Yet as typical with most of the gifts from God, we underutilize them. You may have already experienced the Holy Spirit in your life. Have you ever felt remorse or been convicted for something you have done or left undone? Ever had an insight into a new truth that you were certain was not there previously? If you have then you may have experienced the Holy Spirit. Actively seek the Holy Spirit’s guidance in your life. Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. God will nudge and gently urge you to follow Him but the choice is always yours to make. Listen to those urgings. If you are, unsure if this is God or not ask yourself a simple question. Is the decision you are about to make going to glorify God or yourself? Life is difficult enough we do not need to make it more so by trying to go it alone. Simplify life, open your hearts and minds to God, and follow His lead. Blessings: Pastor Brian

Weekly Devotional Thoughts When I heard about another senseless slaughter of innocent children, women, and men, such as the recent attack in Manchester at the Ariana Grande concert, I felt a profound sense of grief for the loss of life. There is also extreme sadness for the parents who were eagerly awaiting to hear how their children enjoyed the concert, but now instead, they will only hear silence. In my pain and hurt, a part of me wants to join in the call to seek revenge. To wipe all those who possess this kind of ideology from the face of the earth. I ask Jesus to sanction retaliation. Even before I ask, I know the answer. It would be like asking a parent, who is seeing his two children involved in a lethal argument, which child are they ok with losing. I hear Jesus telling me to pray for my enemies. Matthew 5:43-48 (NIV) “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect”. Many times hate has challenged the world. In the past, the Roman Empire persecuted the early believers. These initial believers could never have conquered Rome militarily. Nevertheless, through prayer, love and personal testimonials Rome eventually made Christianity the official religion of the empire. The same can be done today. Pray for a miracle. Pray for hearts that only know aggression and hate to become ones that are filled with grace, compassion, and love for all who inhabit the earth. The battle against evil cannot be won entirely on the battlefield. To overcome evil, we must show those who want to propagate hate that Christ’s love is stronger than hate. We must persevere; the victory has already been won on the cross. We are just waiting for Christ to return to consummate it. Until then, continue to pray for our enemies and those who suffer.

Weekly Devotional Thoughts Acts 2:46-47 “They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people”. The early Christians discovered their joy was not contingent upon the circumstances of their lives, instead it was found in faith, in Jesus. This stands in stark contrast to today’s popular notion that our joy and peace is dependent upon money, health, and a stress free life. God’s longing is for us to have a joy that lasts longer than that new car smell or the purchase of the latest electronic marvel. God doesn’t want us to search for circumstantial joy with its fleeting satisfaction. He wants us to have the joy that cannot be overcome by anything in this world. Seek ways to drive the desire for circumstantial joy from your life. An excellent first step is to cease fighting God for control of your life. Trust that He has your best interest in mind and let Him lead. Become a prayer advocate for other people. Pray for their health, finances, and attitude. Instead of fixating on how you’ve been hurt, ask what may have hurt them and request God to remove their hurt. It may seem counter intuitive that by praying for others our joy and peace will abound but this is way God designed it to work. Giving blesses the one who gives more than the one who receives. In the morning, before the craziness of the day slips in give God thanks for all of the blessings in your life. A heart full of gratitude is a heart that is a joyful one. And remember to pray for a joy that is everlasting and not dependent upon current circumstances. Romans 15:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Blessings: Pastor Brian
