Answer to Did Jesus ever claim to be God? (Telugu)

Inspire

Business is business

One day at kindergarten a teacher said to the class of 5-year-olds, "I'll
give $2 to the child who can tell me who was the most famous man who ever
lived."

An Irish boy put his hand up and said, "It was St. Patrick." The teacher
said, "Sorry Sean, that's not correct."

Then a Scottish boy put his hand up and said, "It was St.Andrew." The
teacher replied, "I'm sorry, Hamish, that's not right
either."

Finally, a Jewish boy raised his hand and said, "It was Jesus Christ." The
teacher said, "That's absolutely right, Marvin, come up here and I'll give
you the $2."

As the teacher was giving Marvin his money, she said, "You know, Marvin,
since you're Jewish, I was very surprised that you said Jesus Christ."

Marvin replied: "Yeah. In my heart I knew it was Moses, but business is
business."



Smile a Smile

I had a friendly smile.I gave that smile away.
The Postman had the milkman seemed glad of it each day.
I gave my Smile away as happy as could be.
And every time I Gave it,my Smile came back to me.


Smile a Smile!
While you Smile
Another Smiles,
And soon there are miles
And miles of Smiles,
And life's worth while
If you but Smile

it would be foolish to think that all who Smile are happy.
there are 'Smiles' and 'Smiles':

Smiles--Self-conscious;
Smiles--Self-Complacent;
Smiles--Conceited;
Smiles--Sarcastic;
Smiles--Superficial;
Smiles--Satanic;
Smiles--Cynical;
Smiles--Critical;
Smiles--Occasional
Smiles--Habitual
Smiles-- Spiritual;

There are smiles
Good
Better
BEST

The BEST kind of Smiles are not "put on". They "come out"
because they are in.They are the result of a Satisfied,thankful,and Glad of the Heart.
CHRIST is the secret,the source,the substance,the center,and the circumference of all true and lasting gladness.
Thou hast put gladness in my heart-Bible
The glad heart maketh a cheerful Countenance-Bible

Good News OR Bad News

Good News is that "God's presence is with you"
Bad News is also "God's presence is with you"
Yes! its true , For me whenever I hear "God's presence is with you" it gives me a tons of confidence and I'm assured of His protection.But what if ,I am in a place where I ought not to be ? But still "God's presence is with me "
Remember, Psalmist in Psalm 139 says
" If I climb to the sky, you're there!
If I go underground, you're there!
If I flew on morning's wings
to the far western horizon,
You'd find me in a minute—
you're already there waiting!
Then I said to myself, "Oh, he even sees me in the dark! "

Prayer:
Dear Lord ,Thanks for the assurance of Your presence where ever we go.Help us not to enter places where we are likely to fall so that we should not grieve the Spirit within us
In Jesus' mighty name,Amen

A New Creature in CHRIST





If God can change a caterpillar to butterfly how much more He will change you into His image
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
2Corinthians 5:17 "
Every person who has been invited God into their heart, confessed and repented of their sins to the God Almighty and surrendered their life to the Lord Jesus Christ is internally and eternally changed by God. Each person has moved from being a caterpillar to being transformed into a Butterfly, figuratively speaking

You be Jesus!

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5, Ryan, 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. "If Jesus were sitting here, He would say 'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'
Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, "Okay Ryan, you be Jesus!"

Interview with Korrel




A gifted South African artist, above all else, a daughter of The King.check out her wonderful interview 

1) Hello dear, please present yourself and tell us who you are.
Greetings, my name is Corlia but most friends call me Korrel. I’m from the beautiful country of South Africa. 32 years “young” and am blessed to be mother to Zander (5) who is the most precious, kind hearted, gentle soul! Faith and family are the most important things in my life.
I speak Afrikaans and am also fluent in English (but please excuse my bad tenses :)
 2) What are your favorite Worship/Praise songs?
I have two in particular, both in Afrikaans. “Meer en meer soos Jesus” meaning more and more like Jesus, and “Jesus groot bo almal” meaning Jesus great above all. You can hear them via these links. The words are awesome and so close to my heart. Wish I could translate it for you.
http://www.we7.com/#/track/Meer-En-Meer-Soos-Jesus!trackId=2403090
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvEoPH0Q5lI


3) What is your favorite Bible passage and why?
Also two here.
Psalm 18: 28-29 “For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.” Just such an inspiration when I’m scared or don’t know how to go on anymore. With Him all things are possible.
John 14:3 "...I will come again...”- My greatest hope and the greatest promise ever!

4) Describe your encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ and how accepting Him as Savior has changed your life?
I was born into a Christian family that is immensely active in the church. I used to sing in all sorts of special choirs for the church, gave Sunday school, active youth member, participated in special groups to improve member’s lives and so on. But I never really had a relationship with God.
About 5 years ago I started questioning the church’s doctrine, which I believed wasn’t fully Bible based. I then left the church and began a rebel journey. I became involved in all sorts of New Age stuff. Went to palm readers, did angel and crystal healing and so on. I totally lost my focus on God and started believing that Jesus was just another way to heaven.
By the grace of God he sent an old friend back into my life. Together with her we started doing Bible studies and I found God again. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” John 8:32
I got baptized in 2006 and gave my life to the ONLY living God! I used to be a Martha, who just does God’s works, but now I became a Mary, who sat at Jesus’ feet. For the first time in my life I can call myself a child of God.
I now believe in the Bible and the Bible alone! Doctrine does seem important, but for me it’s about an active relationship with Jesus. All He asks is that you accept Him, repent and give your life to Him.


5) What ministry are you serving God in or would like to serve in (praise, intercession, mime, writing, dance, preaching, art, etc..)?
I don’t really sing anymore, and would love to do that again. I’m a lecturer at a university, and I feel it’s my life’s purpose to minister to students. They are so in need of spiritual knowledge.
6) What are your spiritual goals, weaknesses and strengths?
My new year’s resolution is to spread the gospel and soon return of Christ. I would love to be a sincere witness of my faith to my family and those people seeking.
My weaknesses are that I’m so convicted of the Truth, that I want to “convert” everyone. So I’ve learned it’s better to be an example than to “Bible bash” people.
My strengths are that I’m a very friendly person, and that makes me approachable. Some people ask me why I always smile, and that gives me the chance to testify of God’s love.

7) Lastly, your message of LOVE to the world ♥
People say so often “God is love” without really understanding the full meaning thereof.
For God (greatest authority) so loved (greatest emotion) the world (greatest sinners), that He gave (greatest gesture) His only (greatest singleness) begotten Son (greatest possession), that whosoever believeth (greatest acceptance) in Him should not perish (greatest punishment), but have everlasting life (greatest reward). If you can understand this great sacrifice of Love, you’ll jump for joy whenever you hear this again!
To the young people I would like to mention this verse from the Bible: “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matt. 6: 33

God bless you all.

All the Earth Will Sing Your Praises -Lincoln Brewster




You took, You take our sins away, oh God
You give, You gave Your life away for us
You came down, You saved us through the cross
Our hearts are changed because of Your great love

You lived, You died, You said in three days You would rise
You did, You're alive
You rule, You reign, You said You're coming back again
I know You will, and all the earth will sing Your praises
All the earth will sing Your praises


Beautiful!!





I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; 
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Mine and Christ'

I gave my blood - Christ gave his.
I gave a pint - He gave all.
The needle is small, sharp - The nails were large, dull.
The table soft, restful - The cross rough, painful.
The nurses kind, gentle - The soldiers cruel, mean.
The crowd applauds my sacrifice.
"They that passed by reviled him."
Mine is for O Positive.
His for positively all.
Mine, at best, will prolong a life for a while.
His, without doubt, can save all forever.
(Several years ago, the Red Cross in small Oklahoma town posted signs all over town with these words)

Safe- Phil Wickham



Verse:
To the one who's dreams are falling all apart
And all you're left with is a tired and broken heart
I can tell by your eyes you think your on your own
but you're not all alone

Have you heard of the One who can calm the raging seas
Give sight to the blind, pull the lame up to their feet
With a love so strong and never let you go
oh you're not alone

Chorus:
You will be safe in His arms
You will be safe in His arms
'Cause the hands that hold the world are holding your heart
This is the promise He made
He will be with You always
When everything is falling apart
You will be safe in His arms

Verse 2:
Did you know that the voice that brings the dead to life
Is the very same voice that calls you to rise
So hear Him now He's calling you home
You will never be alone

Bridge:
These are the hands that built the mountains
the hands that calm the seas
These are the arms that hold the heavens
they are holding you and me

These are hands that healed the leper
Pulled the lame up to their feet
These are the arms that were nailed to a cross
to break our chains and set us free

A sermon about lying


A minister told his congregation, "Next week I plan to preach about the sin of lying. To help you understand my sermon, I want you all to read Mark 17."

The following Sunday, as he prepared to deliver his sermon, the minister asked for a show of hands. He wanted to know how many had read Mark 17. Every hand went up. The minister smiled and said, "Mark has only sixteen chapters. I will now proceed with my sermon on the sin of lying."

Interview with Carla

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_cWFRVjF5z-k/S-q_d5gZ6lI/AAAAAAAAAXE/mUVQq-Fsqus/s1600/carla.jpg


An interview of an inspirational lady who inspires us and shares Gospel by her wonderful work .

1.) Hello dear, please present yourself and tell us who you are.
Greetings, my name is Carla . I am a 47 years old and married to Jeffery. I love to read, write poetry, art, word games, making jewelry, crafts, scrap booking and journaling! I am an only child, but had 3 adult sons, 2 adult daughters and now have 8 gorgeous grand kids! I live in Indiana, USA.

2.) What are your favorite (worship/praise) songs?
I love Southern Gospel and Modern Christian. I have many favorites but these are the 2 that stand out: "I Can Only Imagine" by/Mercy Me & "The Stand" by/Hillsong United.

3.) What is your favorite Bible passage and why?
Romans 5:11 (New Living Translation): "So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God"… Because what a wonderful promise that we can be friends with Jesus and His Father! We can enjoy a personal close relationship with our Savior!

4.) Describe your encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ and how accepting Him as Savior has changed your life?
I was saved at a very young age, but strayed away from God in my early adult life. But praise God, He was waiting right here for me patiently! I rededicated my life to Him several years ago and He has blessed my life beyond words! Since Jesus has come into my life, He has added direction, hope, joy, acceptance and love. When things seem impossible for me, I turn to His Word and prayer. Spending a little time with my Savior always brings light into a dark and troubled world. I am nothing without Him and can do anything my heart desires with Him! My life is complete since letting Jesus dwell into my heart. He is my Best Friend, My Father, My Teacher and most of all my Savior!

5.) What ministry are you serving God in or would like to serve in (praise/worship, mime, intercession, acting, writing, dance, prison outreach, preaching, art,..)?
I love being a witness to His Good News. Right now I write Christian Poetry, I hope to one day be published. I would love to try out the drama team as well.

6.) What are your spiritual goals, weaknesses and strengths?
Spiritual goal is to be sure what my "calling" is in life, to bring more lost souls to Him and to draw closer to Jesus…..Weaknesses would be my priorities. Sometimes I let less important things get in my way of praying and studying His Word…...Strengths would be my gift of Prophecy, Not seeing of the future but rather being able to discern good from evil, right from wrong.

7.) Lastly, your message of LOVE to the world♥
God loves you ☺ He gave His only Son to die on the cross for your past, present and future sins. Through Jesus Christ you can find love, grace, joy, peace, understanding, acceptance, forgiveness and eternal life! Through Him, you are resurrected a new creation! May God Bless You

Christ: The Curse-Breaker

 In his book Written in Blood, Robert Coleman tells the story of a little boy whose sister needed a blood transfusion. The doctor had explained that she had the same disease the boy had recovered from two years earlier. Her only chance for recovery was a transfusion from someone who had previously conquered the disease. Since the two children had the same rare blood type, the boy was the ideal donor.
"Would you give your blood to Mary?" the doctor asked.
Johnny hesitated. His lower lip started to tremble. Then he smiled and said, "Sure, for my sister."
Soon the two children were wheeled into the hospital room—Mary, pale and thin; Johnny, robust and healthy. Neither spoke, but when their eyes met, Johnny grinned.
As the nurse inserted the needle into his arm, Johnny's smile faded. He watched the blood flow through the tube. With the ordeal almost over, his voice, slightly shaky, broke the silence. "Doctor, when do I die?"
Only then did the doctor realize why Johnny had hesitated, why his lip had trembled when he'd agreed to donate his blood. He'd thought giving his blood to his sister meant giving up his life. In that brief moment, he'd made his great decision.
Johnny, fortunately, didn't have to die to save his sister. Each of us, however, has a condition more serious than Mary's, and it required Jesus to give not just His blood, but His life.
It took a curse-breaker to set us free from the guilt of sin. Jesus Christ took our place and took the curse upon Himself when He shed His blood for our sins.
Friend, Jesus gave His life for you!! what have you given to Him??

Funny!

A blonde dies and arrives at the Pearly Gates, where she is greeted by St. Peter.

"Welcome!" he says. "Because we are currently operating at 99% capacity, we can only let a limited number of souls into heaven. Therefore, you must answer my questions correctly to gain entrance."

"Okay," says the blonde.

"Here's your question: name two days of the week that begin with the letter T."

"That's easy. Today and tomorrow!"

"Well, that's not the answer I was thinking of, but I'll give you another question. How many seconds are there in a year?"

"That's easy. Twelve!"

"Twelve?"

"January second, February second, March second -- "

"Okay, okay. I can see you misunderstood this question as well.

Well, Okay. I'll give you one more chance. What's God's name?"

"That's easy. Howard!"

"Howard?"

"You know -- 'Our Father, who art in heaven, Howard be thy name...

Interview with Meggie

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_cWFRVjF5z-k/S7XNb2esnnI/AAAAAAAAAV0/oLPdm1v2KsA/s1600/Meggie.jpg
An Australian girl's interview who has a special calling for India.Meggie has a strong zeal for the Lord at very tender age.
Here is her Amazing and wonderful testimony.

1.) Hello dear, please present yourself and tell us who you are.
Greetings, my name is Meggie and I live in Australia. I am a learning Christian, young woman, revolutionary, and home schooler forever learning about the world around her.

2.) What are your favorite (worship/praise) songs?
One of my favorites would have to be "All I need" by Bethany Dillon. The chorus goes: You are all I need when I am surrounded, you are all I need when I'm by myself. You fill me when I'm empty and there is nothing else. You are all I need.
The chune to it is very happy and joyful, I really connect with God and it relates to me very easily.

3.) What is your favorite Bible passage and why?
When I couldn't do something, God said to me through his scripture, "But the LORD said to me: " Do not say, 'I am a youth,' For you shall go to all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you," says the LORD." (Jeremiah 1:7-8) It came to me when I was afraid of being embarrassed.

4.) Describe your encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ and how accepting Him as Savior has changed your life?
I have been brought up in a Christian home, and I have followed Jesus since I could remember, accepting him at an early age with my nanny praying with me. When I was 10, I found I was a bad 'sinner' and I needed to change my ways. Asking God to help me I got rid of ghastly habits. Ever since I have tried to follow Him with everything in me, but then I read the book, 'Do Hard Things' by Alex and Brett Harris. They encouraged me, and I found I did have the strength to do big things. A month later I got baptized. I never really had an 'conversion' but as I go on I find myself getting closer and closer to Him.


5.) What ministry are you serving God in or would like to serve in (praise/worship, mime, intercession, acting, writing, dance, prison outreach, preaching, art,..)?
Well, I have been playing the keyboard on Sunday worship. People that listened to me are always coming up and telling what a blessing I am. I always feel flabbergasted, because all I do is hit a couple of chords, my mum is a far better player than me. This year I am starting up a organization called "Fear2Faith" where a friend and I will tell other teens about Jesus while raising money for different things. I would love to be a missionary, I have a special calling to India, but when that happens I do not know the LORDS thoughts.

6.) What are your spiritual goals, weaknesses and strengths?
At the moment my spiritual goal would have to be being a 'great older sister' one of those ones that don't quarrel with their siblings, that are looked up to by their brothers and sisters and someone they can trust with secrets and problems. Just to be there for them better than I have been!
A weakness would have to be pride. Steadily slower than I would like I am working through this, but my goodness! It has snuck up on me all these years and I have never noticed it growing!
A strength (do I have one of those? Let me think for a moment….) maybe my overcoming fear of darkness. I can safely say that I can walk out to the car at night with a steady heartbeat! I still need a lot of improvement. But just thinking that Jesus is the light really helps.

7.) Lastly, your message of LOVE to the world♥
Don't be afraid! YOU can conquer the world with Christs love, don't be shy, keep growing and following the Lord, if you have problems speak to Him He is always there to hear even if it doesn't seem like it. If you can take a few minutes check out: www.TheRebelution.com

Happy Easter

"God gave Jesus to die for our sins,
and He raised Him to life, 
so that we would be made acceptable to God"
(Romans 4:25 CEV). 

Apr 2, 2010

Good Friday

  • It is good somebody died for our sins.
    It is good somebody gave us forgiveness of sins.
    It is good that somebody opened the gates to heaven and preparing a place.
  • It is good that somebody made peace with God for us.He's
 JESUS CHRIST
"Christ uncrowned Himself to crown us, and put off His robes to put on our rags, and came down from Heaven to keep us out of hell.  He fasted 40 days that He might feast us to all eternity; He came from Heaven to earth that He might send us from earth to Heaven." 
 What a gift!  What a Savior!  What a Redeemer!  What a Friend!  "Thank You, Lord and Master of my life."


At the cross You beckon me
You draw me gently to my knees
And I am lost for words, so lost in love
I'm sweetly broken, wholly surrendered

Mar 25, 2010

You're Beautiful!!


Do you feel bad about the way you look?
but God says "My hands have formed you"...
You're beautiful in the sight of the Lord.
The Father who sees you inside and out, loves you just the way you're.
What really matters is inner beauty.

1.) Hello dear, please present yourself and tell us who you are.
My name is Julia and I live in South America. I am a 13 year-old schoolgirl and I will be going into 8th grade next year. Though I speak German fluently- I must say, that my English often requires some help from translation programs. Also, I love the Lord, my family, friends, pets, dolphins and vacations.

I like the songs from the “celebrate Jesus" books. I love songs that glorify God.

3.) What is your favorite Bible passage and why?

4.) Describe your encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ & in what way, accepting Him as Savior has changed your life?
I grew up in a Christian home and I wanted to belong to God because He loves me so much and will help me in all things.
Accepting Jesus as Savior has changed my life in the way He helps me to be more obedient. Although it is often hard for me to obey... :) But I know that He took me with all of my weaknesses and strengthened me when I accepted Him as my only Savior! Though I do no great works, He still loves me. He loves me just as I am. And this I find great! I also had many great fears, but God has taken them away from me! Because if I have HIM at my side, then I have nothing to fear... By erasing those fears, I became closer to Him.

I'm not quite sure, but I know that God will show me at the right time... But I love art!

6.) What are your spiritual goals, weaknesses and strengths?
My spiritual goals are to spend more time in prayer to share more of God, to witness my faith, to serve God with my gifts, to better treat my fellow man and to change my personality. I know that I can with God's Help! My strengths and weaknesses are that I find it very easy to read the Bible, but after that, to put the Word in action is no longer so easy ... But at least I try to act and then with God I can do it too!

7.) Lastly, your message of LOVE to the world♥
Jesus loves you so much! He has left His home with the wonderful Father in heaven, to save YOU! He died on the cross for YOU, for YOU- He who is King of kings, became a servant to sacrifice His Life for our sins! All out of LOVE... Would you accept this Gift of LOVE also?




Excuse me, Are you Jesus?

A few years ago a group of salesmen went to a regional sales convention in Chicago . They had assured their wives that they would be home in plenty of time for Friday night's dinner. In their rush, with tickets and briefcases,one of these salesmen inadvertently kicked over a table which held a display of apples. Apples flew everywhere. Without stopping or looking back, they all managed to reach the plane in time for their nearly-missed boarding.

ALL BUT ONE!!! He paused, took a deep breath, got in touch with his feelings, and experienced a twinge of compassion for the girl whose apple stand had been overturned. He told his buddies to go on without him, waved good-bye, told one of them to call his wife when they arrived at their home destination and explain his taking a later flight. Then he returned to the terminal where the apples were all over the terminal floor.

He was glad he did.

The 16-year-old girl was totally blind! She was softly crying, tears running down her cheeks in frustration, and at the same time helplessly groping for her spilled produce as the crowd swirled about her; no one stopping and no
one to care for her plight.

The salesman knelt on the floor with her, gathered up the apples, put them back on the table and helped organize her display.

As he did this, he noticed that many of them had become battered and bruised; these he set aside in another basket.

When he had finished, he pulled out his wallet and said to the girl, 'Here, please take this $40 for the damage we did. Are you okay?' She nodded through her tears. He continued on with, 'I hope we didn't spoil your day too badly.'

As the salesman started to walk away, the bewildered blind girl called out to him, 'Mister.....' He paused and turned to look back into those blind eyes. She continued, 'Are you Jesus?'

He stopped in mid-stride, and he wondered. Then slowly he made his way to catch the later flight with that question burning and bouncing about in his soul: 'Are you Jesus?' Do people mistake you for Jesus? That's our destiny, is it not? To be so much like Jesus that people cannot tell the difference as we live and interact with a world that is blind to His love, life and grace.

If we claim to know Him, we should live, walk and act as He would. Knowing Him is more than simply quoting Scripture and going to church. It's actually living the Word as life unfolds day to day.

You are the apple of His eye even though we, too, have been bruised by a fall. He stopped what He was doing and picked up you and me on a hill called Calvary and paid in full for our damaged fruit.

Interview with Maranda


I am proud to present first interview on my blog with a wonderful Designer!!
Here it is ,

1.) Hello dear, please present yourself and tell us who you are.
My name is Maranda. I am from the United States of America.

2.) What is your favorite (worship/praise) song?
I LOVE Christian music so it is hard to pick just one favorite praise song... but I really like one called "Great Is Our God" among numerous others!

3.) What is your favorite Bible passage and why?
I love the book of Psalms. I love all scripture, but I'd say one of my favorites is the 91st Psalm of protection.

4.) Describe your encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ & in what way, accepting Him as Savior has changed your life.
My mother led me to the Lord in my bedroom at the young age of seven. I had never heard the term "born again", but after we prayed, I said, "Mama! I feel like I'm new... I feel like I've been born again!" Having Christ in my life has made all the difference in my decisions and the paths that I take. He has given me a wonderful Christian husband also.

5.) What ministry are you serving God in or would like to in the future (praise & worship, writing, intercession, acting, dance, mime, preaching, art...) ?
In the past, I have led praise/worship, wrote and directed church dramas (since age 12), and taught children church. Currently, I am writing Christian books.

6.) What are your spiritual goals, weaknesses and strengths?
My spiritual goals are to minister to God's afflicted and encourage them. My greatest weaknesses are my lack of patience and being a control freak. My strengths are compassion, empathy, and being relate-able.

7.) Lastly, your Message of LOVE to the world♥
Jesus is love and He loves us deeper than we can even fathom. I once heard a sermon which said that Satan's greatest desire is to be worshiped, but God's greatest desire is to have companionship with us. God's greatest desire is Y-O-U!

However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, you are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your light bulb for the next Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, 3-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.

Methodists: Undetermined
Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved. You
can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Bring a bulb of your
choice to the Sunday lighting service and a covered dish to pass.

October:Clergy Appreciation Month





Did you know that October is Clergy Appreciation Month??


Clergy Appreciation Month is a special time that set aside each year to honor our pastors and pastoral families for the hard work, sacrificial dedication and multiple blessings provided by these special people. It is typically scheduled in October.
"The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching" (1 Timothy 5:17).
