James 2:17 (NIV) Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
Think about it how will you and I demonstrate God’s grace through loving actions today?
Do you have a pilgrim you want to sponsor for the women’s walk? Many applications have already been received and space is limited, so get applications in as soon as possible. Applications need to be completed by the pilgrim, sponsor and pastor and a check for the $30 application fee. If you are unsure about sponsorship responsibilities, contact any NLE board member.
Don’t forget this week is the Emmaus board meeting. Thursday at 6:30 at the Olive Garden in Decatur. Hope all board members can make it as we prepare for the upcoming women’s walk this fall.
After a day off in the middle of the week most of us have made plans for the remainder of the week. Are you on vacation, or just a day off or did you have to go back to work today, you should have a plan. So my thought for the day is: “What plans do I need to release to God Today?” Think about it and may your day be blessed…..
What are your plans today? Here is a thought for today…Today I will be an example of Christ’s love and share it with everyone I meet…
Just a reminder our monthly gathering is this Thursday at 6:30 at the Church at Stones River in Decatur. Hope to see you there.
NLE is accepting applications for the ladies Fall Walk have you decided who you will sponsor? Have you started praying for God to put that lady on your heart? Meet with God today and ask who shall I send…..
Just A Thought…
With a long weekend on the horizon have you thought about how you will approach each day? How do you approach the day do you ask how God can use you each day? Do you trust the Holy Spirit to make your heart and mind receptive to his inspired words? Do you take time before church each Sunday to ask the Lord to make you attentive to the preacher so that you become a doer of the Word? Before you go to church this week, make sure to pray for your heart to be opened, then discuss what you learned from the sermon afterwards with friends or family. May your days be blessed….
The NLE Gathering is this week on Thursday, May 17. Please join us at 6:30 for food and fellowship. Our meeting place will be Church Stone Rivers. All past pilgrims, community and their families are encouraged to be a part of this great fellowship time. Please join us!!
Scripture Reading — Luke 24:13-24
As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him. — Luke 24:15-16
How could the disciples on the Emmaus road not recognize Jesus? They were returning from Jerusalem, where Jesus had been arrested, tried, tortured, crucified, and buried. Now his body was gone, amid rumors flying that he had risen from the grave.
Just a week earlier they probably had walked with Jesus as he rode a colt into Jerusalem. They had hoped he would declare himself king and take up the ancient throne of David. But instead he was arrested, sentenced, and then crucified. And now they heard tell of an empty tomb and a missing body! As they wandered home to Emmaus, they wondered about what might have been.
