We were designed to
have a lasting impact on
eternity. Everyone will die, but
few people will ever truly live.
To live like a Centurion,
to live with honor before God
and others, to live with
commitment to principle, to live
with dedication to a cause, to
live with compassion for others,
is to live in a way that will
echo in eternity.
We meet for
coffee and conversation on
Saturdays at Einstein Bagels at
7:00am. See you there.
We're studying David A Man After

is able to bless you abundantly, so
that . . . you will abound in every
good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
Imagine going on a trip without
luggage. No basic necessities. No
change of clothing. No money or
credit cards. Sounds both unwise and
terrifying, doesn’t it?
But that’s exactly what Jesus told
His twelve disciples to do when He
sent them out on their first mission
to preach and heal. “Take nothing
for the journey except a staff,”
said Jesus. “No bread, no bag, no
money in your belts. Wear sandals
but not an extra shirt” (Mark
Yet later on when Jesus was
preparing them for their work after
He was gone, He told His disciples,
“If you have a purse, take it, and
also a bag; and if you don’t have a
sword, sell your cloak and buy one”
So, what’s the point here? It’s
about trusting God to supply.
When Jesus referred back to that
first trip, He asked the disciples,
“When I sent you without purse, bag
or sandals, did you lack anything?”
And they answered, “Nothing” (v.
35). The disciples had everything
they needed to carry out what God
had called them to do. He was able
to supply them with the power to do
His work (Mark 6:7).
Do we trust God to supply our needs?
Are we also taking personal
responsibility and planning? Let’s
have faith that He will give us what
we need to carry out His work.
You are good, Lord, and all You
do is good. Help us in our endeavors
to pray and to plan and to trust
God’s will done in God’s way
will never lack God’s supply. Hudson

We have a wonderful example of a
believer in the early church who
hosted and supported the workers the
apostle John sent out to spread the
gospel. Although these visiting
itinerant teachers were strangers to
him, Gaius provided a place for them
to stay, gave them food to eat, and
supported their ministry. Commending
Gaius for his hospitality and
generosity, John wrote, “You are
being faithful to God when you care
for the traveling teachers who pass
through, even though they are
strangers to you” (3 John 1:5–6 nlt).
We can trust God to supply what we
need to serve where He has called
us. And we can be partners with
others as they teach the truth by
praying and providing for them
financially and practically.

"And if it seems evil
to you to serve the Lord, choose
for yourselves this day whom you
will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that
were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the
Amorites, in whose land you
dwell. But as for me and my
house, we will serve the Lord."
