Jesus' Mercy Changes Me, We and the World

Difficult Days

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter to me now. Because I’ve been to the mountaintop. I won’t mind. Like anybody, I would like to have a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s (God) allowed me to go up to the mountaintop. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you, but you know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land. So, I’m happy tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man (person). “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.””

Martin Luther King, Jr April 3, 1968

We live in days of tribulation that many would say are “difficult days” like those Martin Luther King Jr faced. People are worn out with covid, political strife, fires, addictions, various personal issues, and economic uncertainty. May we have the strength of faith King expressed.

PRAYER: “O God, our gracious Heavenly Father, we thank thee for all the insights of the ages, and we thank thee for the privilege of having fellowship with thee. Help us to discover ourselves, our neighbors, and to discover thee, and to make all part of our life. Grant that we will go now with grim and bold determination to live the complete life. In the name and spirit of Jesus, we pray. Amen”—Martin Luther King Jr

Tonight, at 6:30pm you are invited to The Well, our Zoom midweek ministry. We’ll do some teaching, some worship and share some thoughts on ML King Jr.   Let Vikki Luce  know if you are not on the zoom invitation list.

See Psalm 85 for further reflection.

If you desire to serve at the Marade please let us know. Rev Leon Kelly is hoping GGCC can provide some drivers and marchers on the perimeter of the political dignitaries.  

Still in one peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
